“Deborah is the kindest, and caring instructor I think you’d ever meet”


“First of all, I’d just like to say a huge thank you to the best driving instructor ever, Deborah Shapely. She truly is the kindest, and caring instructor I think you’d ever meet. I originally began my lessons with another driving school but left because I didn’t like my instructor. Deborah was then recommended to me by a friend. When I first began my lessons, she was really accommodating and let me pick and choose when the best times for me where. Even when I had to cancel a lesson she was so understanding of my situation. Overall, I had about 30 lessons with Deborah and I couldn’t have asked for a better and more caring driving instructor. I think she was even as happy as I was knowing that I’d passed first time. Thank you for helping me pass and teaching me everything I know.”

Katie Barratt

“Deborah was the best instructor I could have asked for!”


“Since day 1, Deborah was always polite and calm (despite my heavy right foot!). Over the period of the five months for which she taught me, she has been so supportive and encouraging, full of enthusiasm and always understanding. I would, without (undue) hesitation, say she was the best instructor I could’ve wished for. Thank you to Deborah for her time and commitment as well as her positive and friendly attitude, it has helped me to be confident in my own ability to drive”

Sam Parrish-Lyne

“Deborah was a great driving instructor!”


“Deborah was a great driving instructor! She made me feel at ease and comfortable at all times. She always offered constructive criticism but was never too harsh. She offered me extra lessons whenever I felt like I needed them and managed to fit me more around my test date. I would definitely recommend going with Latics driving school! Affordable and very friendly instructors! Thank you, Deborah, and Latics!”

“Deborah is a fantastic instructor!”


“Deb was a fantastic instructor. Very supportive, and always made me feel confident behind the wheel. Very glad that I chose Latics and got Deb as an instructor.

Would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive”

Jonathan Roberts

“Deborah is an amazing instructor!”


“Deborah is an amazing instructor, who always helped me and without her help I wouldn’t have passed my driving test with 1 minor fault. during lessons if I ever made a fault she was always nice told me the correct way to do or saying wouldn’t it better if this or if that, then it would just click with me but all in all she’s a fantastic instructor and I just want to say a massive thanks to her and all her help, I hope she teaches many more and make the roads a safer place”

Lincoln Shaw

“Deborah was brilliant!”


“Deborah was brilliant – always patient, kind, supportive, understanding and generous with her time. She builds your confidence and abilities in equal measure, and never pushes you into a situation/ area you’re not ready for.
I can’t recommend her enough!”

Anthony Burtwistle

“Deb always creates a comfortable atmosphere whilst in the car.”


“I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor than Deborah Shapely! After starting my driving lessons in April with Latics, I have recently passed my driving test first time and I don’t think I could have done it without Deb! I am extremely grateful for all the support she has shown me over the course of my lessons and couldn’t thank her enough. I would 100% recommend her as a great driving instructor, to anyone who was looking to start their lessons. She’s wonderful!
Deb always creates a comfortable atmosphere whilst in the car and is great at keeping your mind at ease and relaxed during your lessons. If you wanted to talk throughout your lesson, that’s fine. While at the same time, if you preferred to stay quiet throughout your lesson, that wouldn’t be a problem either. Deb has always seemed to plan her lessons for them to be as beneficial as they possibly can be for you at the given time. She is completely aware that you are paying for your lessons so understands that sometimes you may have your own ideas on what you would like to do each lesson. Therefore, she also makes sure that she accommodates personal preferences too. Throughout my lessons with Deb, I always felt encouraged to improve and confident that she would keep me safe. Deb is a calming presence to have with you in the car when your nervous about learning new things and is also completely non-judgemental when you feel like you are struggling with something. She remains patient with you and her advice is always genuine and helpful. All in all, if you’re looking for a brilliant and reliable driving instructor that will get you to where you want to be, that also happens to be a lovely, kind and thoughtful person- deb is who you are looking for, so get in touch now! You won’t regret it 😊

“Deb was always smiling and very positive. Always took her time to make sure every detail was perfect can’t thank Deb enough always got me motivated to improve and learn!”

“I would 100% recommend Deborah to anyone.”

1“I cannot thank Deborah enough, she is a fantastic instructor always very friendly and professional she gave me so much confidence and always had faith in me and reassuring me that I could do it whenever I didn’t achieve something right away. Deborah would draw little pictures as well if I didn’t understand things. After failing my practical twice I was ready to give up learning and my confidence was at rock bottom but Deborah never gave up on me and I am very grateful to her for that and with her help I passed on my third attempt with 1 driver fault. I would 100% recommend Deborah to anyone, there is always a relaxed atmosphere in the car from day one, I have never felt nervous on my lessons. Thank you so much Deborah for everything.”

Adele Kearns

“Deborah was honestly such an amazing instructor.”

1“Deborah was honestly such an amazing instructor. I wasn’t the most confident of people when it came to my driving but Deborah never pressured me into anything and coaxed me easily from one step to the next and at the end of it all I have become so confident when I get behind a wheel! She has a lovely motherly vibe that relaxes you when you are nervous and explains things in ways that are very easy to understand! There is not a chance I would have passed without her, I couldn’t thank her enough for pushing me to keep going and never faltering her confidence in me to pass 🙂 ”
