Coaching K ,

Fantastic Podcast

What great insight into others test tales. Very interesting and made me think about my experience and how I now use those techniques to help others. Would highly recommend to everyone who has yet to take a test or has taken one in the past.

#not allowed to apologise 😂 ,

A proper awesome dude!

I met Terry through the driving lessons, but he much more than a driving instructor.. he is a mentor and motivator and is just an all around awesome dude! Even throughout lockdown when we couldn’t do lesson, he was only ever a message a way. He set up podcast and Facebook lives to ensure that his students was ok. He exudes confidence which works wonders for people like me! Even after being adamant I didn’t want to drive that first lesson, he calmed my nerves and had me driving within half an hour! This dude is not just an instructor after the money, he invests his time and wisdom into his students and it works wonders! Thanks for being awesome dude!

Pizza is da best ,

Great show

Really enjoyed listening to this. It’s funny and helpful
