“In our first lesson, Shaz told me I have to work on my confidence. I thought “well Im never going to drive then” because my lack of self confidence had stayed in tact for the 3 years I had been driving on and off. I never thought Id grasp driving. On the last lesson before my test he commented on how I drove with so much confidence and it became clear to me the amount of progress I had made because of Shaz. Whenever I would thank Shaz, he would humbly reply that I needn’t thank him as it was my own doing. But he didn’t know how much he had an impact on my progress and personal development. Not all instructors are the same, they’ll help you pass maybe but they wont all be as accomadating, or understanding, approachable, or as thoughtful. Shaz has a way of explaining things with very useful reference points or analogies that are so unique and helpful you not only know the answers to questions but you understand WHY that is the answer which makes you a much better driver. He is so calm and creates a suitable environment for learning, so you automatically feel calm, even when you may make mistakes. He caterers to your weaknesses and builds your strengths but still allows you to feel confident to drive independently. He will point out when you’ve overcome a tough challenge to help you understand how far you’ve come and I think thats something that will stick with me the most as it built my self confidence. But he’ll also balance that with allowing YOU to comment on your own strengths an say what you did well as oppose to always telling you. This makes YOU believe in yourself. I now possess more then just a license, I have grown, patience, positivity, perseverance and persistence; All qualities of Shaz and now myself as I don’t look at future obstacles with the same negative attitude as I did before our lessons. The most important thing I’d tell future pupils of Shaz is trust in him. If you want to pass, listen to Shaz. From someone who didn’t think they’d ever pass as and did with him, go for Shaz. I wish all his students the best but you’re all in good hands. Thank you so much Shaz. I didn’t just pass because I was taught how to drive , I passed because I was taught by you!!!” Tyanna, Surrey Quays, Degree Student, 20 Nov 2018.
