I started driving with Kenneth due to him taking half my family, and the idea that the majority passed first time, which also helped.

I worked hard and did my homework, and Kenneth helped me build up my confidence and skills and helped me pass first time, with just two minor errors.

He brings out the best in you, and not many of my friends have passed first time, also taking the Pass Plus has enhanced my skills further.
