I had my first lesson with Diana on the 26th October 2022 and passed on the 3rd April 2023 (just over 5 months) on the first attempt at Barnet test centre with 2 minor faults. It is not surprising that she has an extremely high first time pass rate. She is an outstanding instructor with a very friendly approach; she provides a very safe space for learner drivers to make mistakes and she is very experienced, providing lots of helpful advice along the way.
Each lesson starts with a clear objective and this is revisited at the end as well. Her knowledge of the test centres and the area is excellent, each and every lesson took place on parts of possible test routes making you very comfortable and familiar with each junction.
She is always on time and you spend every second of each lesson driving. She tailors each lesson to a pupil based on their needs and her use of mock tests is very good for finding out weaknesses in a pupil´s driving and helping them get as prepared for test as possible. Diana is extremely organised and is very flexible with lesson times. During my time learning to drive, I had to take a 1 month break for university and she was able to accommodate for that.
For anyone learning to drive in Barnet/Hertfordshire, I would highly recommend Diana as a driving instructor.
