“My lessons with Sue were amazing! I’d had previous lessons with other companies and instructors that made feel scared of driving the car but my first lesson with Sue straight away she made feel confident she reassured me all the time and if I did something wrong she tell me calmly if I was to recommend anyone without a doubt it would be Sue she’s the best and I’m sad our lessons have ended but happy at the same time because I passed my test with Sue if I ever wanted any more training Sue is the only one I’d go too thank you Latics and a massive thank you to Sue!”
“I want to say a massive thank you to Susan Birkett for my pass today. Without you and Natalie I wouldn’t have carried on when I failed the first time. Thank you for being a super nice calm and lovely lady. I’ll miss our mad hour … thanks again love Ange XX!”
“I am just writing to you to say how amazing my instructor, Sue Birkett has been. On Wednesday 25th April 2018, I finally passed my driving test. I can honestly say I don’t think I could have done that without the help and guidance of Sue. Due to circumstances I had to stop my lessons for a while and has taken me a while to pass. However, I can say that she is extremely understanding, patient and I think in my opinion one of the best instructors. I have gained confidence and also a friend! Highly recommend Sue to anybody who’s looking to take lessons.
Thanks for everything!”
“After having several manual lessons and struggling with them I was a really nervous driver, as soon as I began lessons with Sue I felt at ease. Sue is so easy going and fills you with confidence, she explains things really well and makes driving simple! I thought it would take me months to pass but thanks to Sue I was confident going into my test and passed first time! Thanks so much Sue, I’ll genuinely miss my lessons with you!”
“I would highly recommend Sue Birkett to anyone who is planning on doing automatic lessons!
She is patient, friendly and puts you so at ease.
I was very nervous on my first lesson and she helped me gain confidence I needed behind the wheel.She never gave up on me when it took me forever to reverse around a corner ha-ha!
She explained everything I needed to learn in detail so I knew what I had to do!
Thank you Sue without you I don’t think I would ever off gained the confidence I needed and of passed my test!
I’ll definitely be recommending Latics and of course Sue to anyone doing their driving lessons! “
“Sue was very helpful and promoted my confidence, she was very calm and always rectified my mistakes. I will highly recommend to other learners, she is a very lovely and Friendly lady.”
“I took my test after 10 lessons with Sue Birkett and passed with a few minors. Sue was fantastic and very encouraging. Will recommend her to others that want to learn. Thanks so much!”
“My instructor sue was just fab so patience and a really nice lady she got me through it . I would definitely say go with Latics and go with Sue!”
“WOW! Just passed my driving test at a right old age and its all thanks to Sue Birkett. She has shown nothing but patience and given only great advice and instruction during my time learning with her. I never thought that I would have achieved a driving licence during my lifetime, only because of bad experiences with varied driving schools, that is until now. If you are reading this and are looking for the right instructor, then I would strongly recommend Sue and Latics, simply the best. Thanks Sue, brilliant.”
“She is patient and friendly. I changed to automatic after struggling for quite a while with manual and within 15 lessons I had passed my theory and passed my test first time, with only 5 minors. She is a great person and has a very calming manner which puts you at ease. This helped a lot as I am quite a giddy person. So if anyone is considering going automatic, don’t hesitate it will be the best thing you ever do…I cannot thank her enough ,she had so much positivity and said she had no doubt I could pass.????”
“I recently passed my second driving test with the help, support and guidance of Sue, as an older student I was very nervous, Sue gave me the confidence I needed to pass, it was like learning to drive with a good friend. Sue was very patient, very friendly and also very caring and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to recommend Sue to teach anyone to learn to drive; I can’t thank her enough for my new lease of life and freedom to drive.”
“Sue was amazing!”
“I had an amazing female instructor called Sue, she was so patient, very friendly and reliable. I would definitely recommend her!!!!”
“Sue is the most patient lady I know.”
“I would like to thank Sue Birkett for helping me to pass my test, she is the most patient lady I know and I was so nervous learning to drive, Sue helped me gain my confidence. Thank you Sue for everything I am so happy and I will miss you, take care love jackie xx“
“I was very pleased with Sue as my driving instructor.”
“She told me everything I needed to learn and the things that I needed to concentrate on the most. Sue is very calm and explains everything in great detail so you understand what she is going on about. She doesn’t rush you at all, I could take all the time in the world on whatever I was learning and she wouldn’t mind, she just wants the best out of you and makes learning easy and understandable.
I would recommend Sue to anybody who wants to do Automatic tuition. I found that working with her was very relatable and no nerves at all!
Thankyou Sue for being my instructor and helping me pass my driving test first time. I am loving being on the road it’s a great feeling, thanks for everything you had done.“
“Sue made it very easy to accommodate me.”
“I’ve had lessons previously with a not so good driving instructor! I then heard about the Latics reputation and thought I’d ring up, I was then put on a waiting list only for around a couple of weeks. I was a little nervous as the other instructor knocked my confidence a bit but Sue was so helpful and guided me with patience as to where I needed improvement. I do shift work and long hours so it isn’t easy to commit to a set day, however Sue made it very easy to accommodate me. I passed my test first time with 8 minors, thanks to Sue. I will miss our weekly chats as she’s so easy to talk to, she made me feel really comfortable and I’m a little sad I won’t be seeing her anymore but also glad I’ve passed!! Haha. Thanks sue xxxx“
“Thanks a million to Sue Birkett.”
“Her calm and patient attitude was invaluable in teaching me to drive and getting me through my test. She has a wonderful ability to instil confidence. I thought I was a hopeless case, but Sue believed in me. I couldn’t have done it without you Sue.“
“Sue was understanding and flexible.”
“I have just passed my driving test on the first attempt after only 9 lessons (10 hours) with Sue Birkett, and did so with only 4 minors. I never would have imagined that I could learn to drive and pass so quickly.
When I first started my lessons I was extremely nervous but Sue put me at ease straight away. I struggled with my nerves for the first few lessons but she was very patient and made me feel much more relaxed.
Sue had confidence in me and my driving ability and that made me have confidence in myself. She explained everything I needed to know in a way that made it simple to grasp and easy to remember.
Sue was also very understanding and flexible when it came to my lesson times, I have a 1 year old and sometimes would need to alter my lessons and this was never an issue.
I would like to thank Latics and Sue for giving me a new sense of independence. I have been waiting 13 years to take driving lessons and I am glad that it was Sue that taught me to drive. I would 100% recommend choosing Sue for your driving lessons.
Thanks for everything!!“
“I couldn’t have wished for anyone better than Sue.”
“I’m really glad I picked Latics and SueBirkett she was a fantastic instructor. I couldn’t have wished for anyone better, Sue got me through my test first time, she was brilliant very helpful, very friendly and good to get on with. She always had lots of time for me, I can’t thank you enough!“
“I had gone through a few instructors and I was about to give up because most of them didn’t have patience. So when I joined Latics my life changed, instead I felt like doing a lesson everyday.
Sue is an instructor with so much patience she changed me from a nervous wreck to a strong woman, I never thought I would pass until the day I chose Sue as my instructor. Sue you have one gift that God has given you and no man shall take away from you and this is patience.
Without changing to Latics I could not have done this, thank you Sue, thank you Latics my world has changed but I now miss my instructor, her company made me feel like taking a lessons everyday.”
“I was very pleased with Sue as my driving instructor, she told me everything I needed to learn and the things that I needed to concentrate on the most.
