Saoirse – West Linton

Saoirse started driving lessons in 2020 just after driving lessons resumed in Scotland after the first coronavirus lockdown. We managed to get a couple of months done and then before we knew it we were back into another lockdown. This was a shame as it meant that just as Saoirse was starting to build momentum with driving lessons there seemed to be another thing that got in the way. When driving lessons resumed in 2021 we picked things back up.

While we were carrying out driving lessons Saoirse was regularly looking for a driving theory test as the covid restrictions and backlog were making this very hard to find. Then not before too long, Saoirse was heading away to Glasgow so we had to stop driving lessons again.

Summer 2022 we were away to a much better start, Saoirse successfully booked and passed a theory test, and lined up a driving test date for the summer before she returned to Glasgow. We worked hard during driving lessons to try and get Saoirse ready for the test. We carried out mock tests and drove through many tricky bits that people often make mistakes.

On the week of the driving test, we decided to carry out one extra lesson to be sure that we were fully prepared. Saoirse did so well in getting the final details together.

On the test day, I collected Saoirse early and we headed for the test after a great drive around we parked up at the test centre and I was delighted to hear on her return that she had passed her driving test on her first attempt. well done Saoirse.
