“Sitara has been the most patient, honest, caring, funny and friendly instructor. Many thanks to Sitara that I have passed my driving test, without her motivating me I couldn’t have done and would’ve lost all hope but Sitara kept pushing me and believed in me, her level of patience has also driven me to try very hard and she never gave up on me after many failed attempts, so thanks a lot to Sitara who Imost definitely recommend to anybody and somebodyI’ll really miss”

“Sitara always went above and beyond!”

“I have been learning to drive with Sitara on and off for 2 years. Each time I came back to Sitara, she always went above and beyond to fit me in. She has not only been my driving instructor, she has been a great listener and has become a friend. She is so calm, and really explains any faults. She never got stressed no matter how stressed I was!! Thank you so much Sitara. I got my 1st time pass all because of you!!”

I passed first time after just 25 lessons of driving she’s just that amazing! I could not recommend her enough!!”

Kezia Budsworth

“Sitara was absolutely amazing!”

“Sitara was polite and patient!”

Becky Heaton

“Always goes that extra mile to make you a better driver, 100% recommended.”

“Sitara, is great instructor very easy going always makes you feel comfortable. Sitara improved my driving massively got me more confident, more aware of certain situations, just an all-round great instructor. Which lead me to passing my test. Always goes that extra mile to make you a better driver, 100% recommended.”

Rhys Boothroyd

“A massive thank you to Latics and more specifically Sitara Begum.”

“A massive thank you to Latics and more specifically Sitara Begum, for her patience and belief in me that I’d pass. I honestly cannot thank her enough, I’ve had instructors before Sitara who honestly made me think I wasn’t cut out for driving.

Sitara helped me with my nerves by allowing me to go at my own pace and only pushing me when she knew I was ready. Offering in depth analysis of each manoeuvre and breaking those down into simple and memorable points.

As someone who started off full of nerves and doubt from bad experiences with instructors, I’d highly recommended Sitara to anyone, especially beginners.”

Elliot Collymore

“I’m so happy I choose to learn with Sitara.”

“I’m am so glad that I choose to learn to drive with Latics but more importantly I’m so happy I choose to learn with Sitara. Sitara worked so hard helping me build up my confidence with being on the roads, she worked tirelessly to make sure that I was more than ready for my practical test. I was never made to drive in a situation where I didn’t feel comfortable and I was able to learn and progress at pace that suited me. Sitara taught me not to doubt myself and she always believed in me, towards the end of my lessons Sitara became more of a friend than an instructor and I am sad not to be having lessons with her anymore! She is amazing and I would recommend her to everyone!”

Bethany Smith

“She never made me feel like I couldn’t do anything.”

“I would highly recommend Latics Driving school especially Sitara as a driving instructor. She is such a friendly person and made me feel completely at ease whilst on my lessons. She never made me feel like I couldn’t do anything and was always very supportive if there was anything I was struggling with.”

Jane Croft

“Sitara is an absolute diamond.”

“I’m so happy that I made the right choice of calling Latics, not only did Sitara help me with my driving she also helped me with my confidence and didn’t give up one me.I can honestly say she is an absolute diamond you have and I’m proud to say I’ve passed with Latics so I’d like to thank the big boss for choosing the right instructor :))”

Halema Bibi


“Thank you so much Sitara, we Oldham learners are lucky to have you.”

“I passed my test first time with two minors after having lessons with Sitara. I was an incredibly anxious learner who did not even want to step foot into the car, but due to work commitments I needed to be able to drive. Sitara was fabulous at putting me at ease, and she quickly saw where I was struggling and pointed me in the right direction. I was so comfortable in the car with Sitara, I’m not convinced anyone else would have managed to get me through my test, particularly in the short period of time I gave myself to learn (three months!!). Sitara is more than just a driving instructor, she became my friend. I would not hesitate to recommend Sitara to everyone I know who wants to learn to drive, and I have already mentioned her to a few people who I know she can help, just as she has for me.”

Rachel Bramah

“Passed first time with Sitara!”

“Really can’t thank sitara enough for the help and support from the beginning to the very end… I will be recommending her to all my family and friends… I looked forward to every single lesson, such a relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended!!”

“Sitara was a brilliant instructor!”

“I passed my test in under thirty hours and only got two minors which I couldn’t have done without Sitara! She is a brilliant instructor who is very patient, has a lot of faith in her learners and makes you feel really confident and comfortable when you’re driving. I feel assured that I have received excellent tuition and that I’m ready to drive independently now. I would highly recommend Sitara to anyone who is looking to start driving!”

“Sitara put me at ease.”

“I decided that I needed to pass my driving test and had issues with previous instructors at other firms, after taking a chance with Sitara I can honestly say I’m incredibly happy with my choice. I’ve had 13 lessons with her and was ready for test, passing with only 1 minor. She didn’t pressure me, was very calm and easy to talk to and best of all she is an incredible Instructor. During our lessons if I got something wrong she explained how to fix it in an easy to understand way, she really put me at ease behind the wheel and as a result, I feel a lot more capable, honestly cannot recommend Sitara and Latics, they are superb!”

David Buckley

“Sitara is down to earth and friendly!”

“My instructor was Sitara and I honestly would recommend her to anyone learning to drive for the first time. She is so down to earth and friendly, so there was an instant sense of understanding. The lessons were fun and simple, having full confidence in her learners. She showed faith in her learners and was determined for them to pass for the first time. Thank you!!”
