    Georgina Down

    beltup22017 Georgina Down passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie is an amazing driving instructor; I passed both my theory and practical test first time with Angie’s help. I would highly recommend anyone looking for lessons to go and have lessons with Angie. She is very patient and clear at explaining things and makes her lessons enjoyable. She built up my confidence with my driving through well taught and structured lessons and a lot of positive encouragement! Thank you so much for all of your help Angie it has been a pleasure being your student.

    Ollie Price

    beltup22017 Ollie Price passed with Belt Up Driving School I would like to say a big thankyou to Angie for being such an exceptional driving instructor. As well as a good instructor, she is a really nice person who is approachable and fun. I wouldn't of passed in the time that I did if I had another instructor as Angie's lessons were at a very high quality. Once again another big thankyou to Angie, and hopefully i'll see her around :-).

    Devon Parlett

    beltup22017 Devon Parlett passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie, of Belt Up Driving School, gave high quality teaching and with her patient and friendly nature made me feel safe and comfortable at the wheel of her car. Angie sets her lessons based on the student's confidence and pace of learning, slowing introducing the student to a new topic. Personally, I found angie's style of teaching simple and easy to remember, for example, on the manoeuvres (i.e. Parallel park) Angie likes to use step-by-step instructions which she entitles with small phrases.
    "fully turn the steering wheel to the left and keep the car moving until it reaches a 2 o'clock position, like on a clock face". Very rememberable and easy to understand. With thanks to angie I passed my driving test and am now a safe, confident driver.

    Amy Brokenden

    beltup22017 Amy Brokenden passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie was extremely patient and helpful, learning to drive became a pleasure rather than a fear. The door to door lessons were really useful when it came to my busy time table at school. I also got help with my theory which was great and had a program and record note sheet which helped alot! That way I could review what I did in my lesson and know what I needed to improve on when out driving with my dad. I would strongly recommend angie at belt up for anyone learning to drive, she is an amazing instructor with fair prices! :).

    Becky Edmonds

    beltup22017 Becky Edmonds passed with Belt Up Driving School Fantastic driving instructor! Couldn't imagine being taught by anybody else! Always made sure I understood everything and was incredibly encouraging! Thank you for the help and support!

    Lisa

    beltup22017 Lisa passed with Belt Up Driving School Amazing driving instructor, really helpful encouraging and patient. Couldn't recommend any driving instructor more. Thanks again for everything!!

    Danny Holmes

    beltup22017 Danny Holmes passed with Belt Up Driving School If you are considering learning to drive, and if you're reading this then I assume you are, choosing Belt Up Driving School should be the first thing you do. Angie's teaching methods are fantastic - informative, professional, and all with a calm and friendly manner that helps you feel at ease. As the whole learning process can sometimes be a stressful experience I found that this approach was of great help, and with Angie not only did I pass my theory test first time, but my practical test as well. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Reese Howard

    beltup22017 Reese Howard passed with Belt Up Driving School Learning with Angie at Belt Up Driving School has been brilliant. She has taught me well, explaining everything in full and working past technique and skill issues until they were solved and has been good at building up my confidence driving to a high level. I passed my test first time thanks to the tuition I received.

    Chelsey

    beltup22017 Chelsey passed with Belt Up Driving School I chose Angie from Belt Up Driving School as my first and only instructor due to the wonderful reviews relating to her high standard of teaching. Having completed and passed my practical driving test with Belt Up, I want to share the enthusiasm I have towards Angie's teaching. She was always punctual and equipped with materials to aid her teaching, which I believe are suitable for a range of different learning styles. The lessons were always structured and I felt throughout that I was aware of what we had covered and what was ahead. She also gave me access to sites to help me with my driving theory. Angie gives a calm, controlled and friendly environment of which gave me confidence in not only my driving ability but in myself. I passed first time with only 1 minor driving error with the Test Centre manager as my examiner and the Senior examiner in the car observing. No review can truly give her justice, if you are looking for an all round brilliant instructor; Belt Up is for you.

    Paula

    beltup22017 Paula passed with Belt Up Driving School I cannot express how brilliant Angie was! I decided to go with her based on the reviews I read on here and am very glad I did! Before I had failed 2 tests and was starting to think that I would never pass. I had had tonnes of unstructured lessons with a previous instructor- but it was Angie who really helped me to consolidate all the necessary skills. She is a gifted teacher who is able to adapt the way she teaches in order to best suit your individual understanding and learning. She is friendly, approachable and calm and makes lessons enjoyable and fly past (I used to DREAD my previous lessons).
    Angie- thank you so much! You are truly excellent at what you do and thanks to you I will be braving the London roads!! Paula x.

    Amiee Ralls

    beltup22017 Amiee Ralls passed with Belt Up Driving School I first learnt to drive 12 years ago but didn’t pass the practical test. It was a bad experience and put me off driving for a long time. At the end of last year I decided to give it another go and got in touch with Angie Presland. Her tuition was excellent as she explained the rules of the road and the technicalities of driving in a way which was easy to understand – she didn’t over complicate the simple things!

    Angie put me at ease from my first lesson and was constantly encouraging about my progress. Without Angie’s positivity and belief in my ability I wouldn’t have passed my practical test. I passed on my first attempt after my lessons with Angie, which is a reflection of her expert skills as an instructor.

    I would happily recommend Angie and the Belt Up Driving School to anyone looking for an excellent, calm and positive instructor in Plymouth. Thank you Angie :).

    Natalie Wakeham

    beltup22017 Natalie Wakeham passed with Belt Up Driving School Thank you Angie for your patience and laughs, eventually passed with you after 17yrs and countless instructors you made me feel so at ease and confident.

    Bethany Smith

    beltup22017 Bethany Smith passed with Belt Up Driving School I didn't really want to start driving when I turned 17 but I'm so glad that I decided to learn with Belt Up! Angie has been an amazing instructor, always kind and friendly. All lessons are tailored to fit your needs and she will help you to learn things that you will need to know in the future. Angie also did a night time driving lesson with me and it was so enjoyable. I've had a great time learning to drive, and I'd definitely recommend Belt Up Driving School!

    Jackie Tse

    beltup22017 Jackie Tse passed with Belt Up Driving School Where to start. I started really slow, confidence levels were at the lowest of the lowest and I couldn't even distinguish between the brake and the clutch pedal. Angie is a one-of-a-kind instructor and with her patience and knowledge, anybody (and I mean ANYBODY) can drive. Angie is truly amazing and I would recommend her most definitely. I'm so happy I chose Belt Up as my driving school; no regrets at all. So what are you waiting for? Call her and book a lesson now!

    Melissa Finch

    beltup22017 Melissa Finch passed with Belt Up Driving School I would strongly recommend Belt Up Driving School. Angie is an excellent instructor! Before learning with Belt Up I went through two other instructors and the difference in the quality of teaching was phenomenal! Not only did Angie structure out a plan suited for my own individual improvement for each lesson, she also provided me with help outside of the practical lessons by giving me material to help with theory work. An overall fantastic instructor, who provides a great standard of teaching while maintaining a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Belt Up Driving is superb!

    Mary Hoskin, Torpoint

    beltup22017 Mary Hoskin, Torpoint passed with Belt Up Driving School After 40 years of driving with a US license, I took lessons from Angie Presland in order to obtain my Full UK license. Angie was extremely patient and helpful as I undertook learning all the skills I would need to pass the UK test. Though I found the experience stressful, Angie did her best to update my driving skills to those used in the UK. I passed the test today on my first GO and Angie's part in my success cannot be understated. Would recommend BeltUp Driving School to anyone.

    Alexa Benham

    beltup22017 Alexa Benham passed with Belt Up Driving School When looking for an instructor, I thoroughly researched all the various driving schools and instructors. I found myself looking through reviews (like this one) and seeing so many positive reviews and ratings, that it was a simple choice to go with Belt Up Driving School and to choose Angie.

    This was one of my best decisions.

    After that very first lesson, I knew that the instruction I was getting was top quality. I wasn't being told, I was being taught. I truly have loved learning.

    Angie has managed to make driving a car go from feeling completely alien to feeling completely natural. Also somehow managing to help me find my inner confidence, growing both as a person and as a driver.

    Whilst I consider Angie a brilliant and top instructor, I also consider her a friend. I will truly miss the driving lessons, conversations, laughter, learning and smiles.

    From catchy phrases to life lessons, learning to drive has been brilliant!

    Thank you so much Angie. I've loved every minute! I literally could not speak more highly of you. I wish you and your family health and happiness!

    Lucy Corboy

    beltup22017 Lucy Corboy passed with Belt Up Driving School I passed on my first attempt today after lessons with Angie and I can't recommend her highly enough! Very positive and so patient. Angie puts the student first and always makes sure you're happy with what you're doing, even if it means doing a bay park 10 times in one lesson! I'm going to miss our weekly lessons. Thank you so much Angie :).

    Luke Stannard

    beltup22017 Luke Stannard passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie is an excellent driving instructor who helped me pass both the theory and practical test first time with high standards. She is always positive, confident and calm throughout all of the lessons making it a lovely environment to be in for learning. When explaining new skills and manoeuvres she makes it easy to follow and understandable with step by step instructions, often with the use of diagrams so that you can picture it in your head, which for me was perfect. I would recommend her to anyone as she adapts to suit her students.
    Once again thanks for all your help and teaching me to be a safe and confident driver.

    Alisha Chapman

    beltup22017 Alisha Chapman passed with Belt Up Driving School Passed my driving test today after being taught by Angie. It was my first try and I have Angie to thank for that. Best instructor who I would recommend to anyone.

    Tom Martin

    beltup22017 Tom Martin passed with Belt Up Driving School I was rubbish when I started but Angie soon put me at ease and remained calm despite the numerous times I had messed up. I grew as a driver fairly quickly due to the confidence she installs in you and the effective way that things you're expected to do are laid out to you.

    The free theory test pro online theory practice is also a massive bonus, and if used effectively it (should) see you pass your theory first time.. Unlike me!

    Definitely recommend Angie as its a good price for the tuition you get and it's a loooovely car to drive!

    Thanks Angie!!

    Debbie Burnett

    beltup22017 Debbie Burnett passed with Belt Up Driving School after never driving a car before I was nervous about my first lesson with angie to say the least. I shouldn't have been. Within the first hour I was feeling a lot more relaxed and confident behind the wheel thanks to angie`s professional and patient instruction. She made me so much more confident as the weeks went on that in the end I was really looking forward to going out for my weekly lesson. The free theory test pro was a great help too, and made the theory part of the test much easier as I knew exactly what to expect. I passed my practical test 2 days ago and cant thank angie enough for all her help. I have really enjoyed my lessons with angie and cant recommend her highly enough. She has the patience of a saint believe me. I am so happy to have passed my test thanks to angie. Many thanks.

Not only is she an amazing driver she has the patience for people who don't pick things up as fast , and has a lot of time for her students and I would recommend her to anyone! So glad I went with Angie and can't thank her enough!:) wooo xxxx

    Sam Crotch

    beltup22017 Sam Crotch passed with Belt Up Driving School I had almost given up on ever driving, mostly through nerves, until my friend gave me Angies no. She really put me at ease & after a short while i was actually looking forward to my lessons. I past my test 1st time & am enjoying my new found freedom. I would recommend Belt Up Driving School to anyone :-D

    James Kay

    beltup22017 James Kay passed with Belt Up Driving School Thank you Angie. James had struggled with his previous instructor but you really gave him confidence and helped him overcome the difficulties he experienced with his dyslexia by explaining things in different ways until he got it.

    Phoebe Thompson

    beltup22017 Phoebe Thompson passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie is a very kind and patient instructor, who has helped me relax when I was panicking before my test and during driving lessons. She is an amazing instructor and I would not have passed first time without her.

    Luke Ridge

With a friendly and professional attitude to teaching Angie helped me every step of the way to passing my test. With helpful hints and tips, which only come with experience, learning with Angie will give anyone the very best preparation for their test and beyond. I recommend Belt Up Driving School 100%. Thank You Very Much Angie :D.

    Ashley

    beltup22017 Ashley passed with Belt Up Driving School I am really glad I picked Angie to help me get test ready, my learning previously to getting a proper instructor had been at a somewhat leisurely pace being mid 30s but after taking my first test today and passing I can not recommend Angie highly enough.

    Being very patient and easy to talk to it has actually been quite fun although I may just become a bus driver just to prove you wrong one day :)

    Angie is very professional and obviously a very experienced instructor who actually suggested I needed less lessons than I had originally planned - I am not so sure many other instructors would of done that.

    One criticism… I honestly can not think of any - I did try to give one though.

    Thanks again Angie!

    Emily Male

    beltup22017 Emily Male passed with Belt Up Driving School I highly recommend having Angie as a driving instructor. She is a very patient; kind and an understanding person who was able to help build my confidence and provide me with a lot of advice. I had the most wonderful driving experience with her and if I was to repeat this again, I wouldn't change a thing! I recommend 1000%. Thank you so much again Angie :) x.

    Elly Duley

    Charlie Bettles

I learnt so much, so quickly -great value for money. Thankyou so much and will miss our lessons!

    Nicky Clark

    beltup22017 Nicky Clark passed with Belt Up Driving School After having been dropped by my previous instructor after failing my first test, I was worried about having to start again and learning new techniques. With Angie´s teaching I was able to pick up a safer and more progressive style of driving and have passed after only a few lessons. I would highly recommend this driving instructor because of her professional approach and friendly attitude.

    Beth Gare

    beltup22017 Beth Gare passed with Belt Up Driving School I was initially very nervous about learning to drive and being on the roads, however Angie really helped to calm my nerves and build up my confidence. She tailored each lesson to my changing abilities and taught me everything I need to know, and more, about driving, and without her I wouldn´t have passed 1st time! She really is a fantastic instructor and I couldn´t recommend her enough. Thanks again!

    Laura Riley-Wallace

    beltup22017 Laura Riley-Wallace passed with Belt Up Driving School What a fantastic driving instructor. The best in Plymouth, and the only one you should consider so you can pass your driving test and become a confident, sensible, knowledgeable driver.
    I genuinely never thought I´d ever drive. It was something I didn´t even think about because, well, I knew that I could never pass. I was an overly nervous learner and had tried other instructors 8-9 years ago but felt uncomfortable, unsupported… even conned. With Angie everything was just so different. Even from the first hour there was instant support. Angie never gave up on me even when I´d given up on myself. I wish I´d met her 8 years ago but I am so incredibly grateful to have met her now.
    So, to actually learn to drive, Angie at Belt Up Driving School is the only instructor you should consider. I´ve already recommended her to friends! Thank you Angie for believing in me!

    Asif Arif

    beltup22017 Asif Arif passed with Belt Up Driving School After previous attempts many years earlier with an uninspiring instructor I had become very apprehensive about driving. Once I worked up the courage and the funds to give it another stab I made sure this time to pick a highly recommended instructor and this led me to Angie.
    Angie quickly turned me from a nervous wreck behind the wheel to a confident driver. She is very patient, motivating and pushes her pupils to master all aspects of driving. A high standard is expected in every lesson which is great because when it was time for the test everything was very instinctive despite my nerves. Now that I´ve passed I´m pretty disappointed we won´t be able to hangout any more! Thanks for everything Angie!

    Bethany Hughes

    beltup22017 Bethany Hughes passed with Belt Up Driving School My driving experience has honestly been one of the best experiences of my life and it is simply down to Angie with belt up driving school.

I´m sad my driving lessons will be over but am fully confident I have learnt everything ensuing I´m the safest driver I can possibly be ! Massive Thank you to belt up driving school :).

    Sam Scott

    beltup22017 Sam Scott passed with Belt Up Driving School She is a brilliant instructor ! She puts you at ease very quiclky and will adapt her teaching methods to suit you the best. She will give you advice and teach you how to drive in the "real world" (e.g Many instructors don´t teach you how to do basic things like: put fuel in !).

    Gabby Basso

    beltup22017 Gabby Basso passed with Belt Up Driving School I couldn´t have asked for a more patient, hard-working and fab driving instructor!! From my first lesson I felt confident and in safe hands, and overtime Angie has really been able to find my strengths and weaknesses in driving to help me improve every lesson! Angie has given me great confidence and knowledge on driving and this week I passed first time which I am over the moon about. I couldn´t recommend Belt Up Driving School more!! ���

    Liz Cann

    beltup22017 Liz Cann passed with Belt Up Driving School I had driving lessons with Angie for almost a year and found her teaching skills exceptional.

    Each lesson was tailor made to my needs and presented in a style of teaching to suit me, resulting in a pass first time!

    Her personable nature makes you feel at ease instantly which is essential to allow you to become a confident and relaxed driver.

    Angie was also extremely accommodating when fitting lessons around my, at times difficult shift work pattern, especially around the weeks leading up to my test.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend Belt Up Driving School.

    Kirsty Neil

    beltup22017 Kirsty Neil passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie was so friendly, understanding and patient with me. Passed my driving test this week with only 4 minors! By breaking down each technique I was able to understand them easily and practice them over and over again. Couldn´t ask for anything more! Thank you so much for everything!

    Tina Thorning-Curtis

    beltup22017 Tina Thorning-Curtis passed with Belt Up Driving School I was having problems passing with my other driving instructor, so I went with Belt Up Driving School and my new instructor Angie Presland was absolutely brilliant. At first I thought what have I done! But I´m the sort of person who doesn´t like change. I was also a very nervous driver, but she brought everything out of me, encouraged me to do things I was too nervous to do. I also found when I first started with her I was doing things wrong, but she corrected them. I´d had two attempts at my test under my old instructor and failed! Because I couldn´t do any of my manoeuvres unless someone was telling me what to do. Under Angie I managed to do them all myself and passed first time. So would like to say a big thank you to both Belt Up Driving School and Angie Presland.

    Becca Hawkins

    beltup22017 Becca Hawkins passed with Belt Up Driving School Angie was a brilliant instructor who instantly made me feel at ease when I first got behind the wheel. I always felt comfortable to ask any questions that I had about specific or general driving advice. Each lesson had a clear structure until everything was covered and then being given the freedom to do an independent drive and practice any areas that I felt less comfortable with such as dual carriageways made me a much more confident driver. Angie was the perfect instructor and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for driving expertise.

    Shell Thomas

    beltup22017 Shell Thomas passed with Belt Up Driving School Well what can I say! Angie is a fantastic driving instructor. Angie is very patient (needed to be with me), clear and calm, she explains things that make it easy for you personally to understand whilst getting all the important things across. Angie is very approachable and this makes her lessons a pleasure and fun, she is always available to answer any questions you may have and if you are not to sure about something she will explain them until you do get it. Lessons are designed to suit you and what you feel you need to learn or practice. I never thought I could pass my test but I have, and it is all thanks to the lovely Angie having faith in me, so a big thank you..

    Jonny Pink

    beltup22017 Jonny Pink passed with Belt Up Driving School Having been through two other instructors previously and having a year long gap in my driving, I was very nervous starting up again with a new driving instructor, however Angie immediately put me at ease. She was fantastic at working out where I was having difficulty and needed improvement, and was endlessly supportive and helpful even after poor drives. I don´t think I could have found a better driving instructor and certainly not one as friendly and chatty as Angie. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking to pass their driving test.

    beltup22017 Francesca passed with Belt Up Driving School I´ve had lots of learning experience and Angie is absolutely amazing! I found her visual way of teaching to be very easy to get to grips with and she explained things in ways that really helped me understand. She´s such fun - 10/10, would not hesitate to recommend her a thousand times over.

    Angie was a fantastic instructor with endless patience and always had a way to help me understand what we were doing and why. She got me through the test even after I contemplated giving up on several occasions. I was a reluctant learner but Angie succeeded in making a competent driver out of me! I can´t think of anyone else who would have had the patience, courage, determination and know how to do that! Thankyou so much for sticking with me Angie!!

    I started to learn to drive about 6 years ago, i went through two instructors and three tests, it got to the point where i was frustrated that i couldn´t pass, don´t get me wrong, some days i felt like a really decent driver, but if i am being totally honest with myself, deep down i thought even if i did pass i didn´t know how confident i would actually be to take a car out on my own.This time around i was determined to get the best training i could and to hope that when i do start again i do it right and with more confidence... my search bought me to google, and google bought me here.I started lessons with Angie and immediately knew i had made the right choice... all of these reviews are justified.Angie is an outstanding instructor, so obviously better than the ones i previously had. She starts by making you more relaxed and is very clear with discribing technique.You soon find your confidence build but in a way that sticks. Everything you do is picked up on, in a way which not only makes you feel you can remember everything on your test, but almost to the point where you could pass the info on to someone else. It becomes second nature. I didn´t have this kind of confidence before.I cannot recommend Angie and Belt Up Driving School enough... if you are curious about starting to drive, have tried driving before or just need a confidence boost, give this a go, you won´t regret it.Neil

    I was driving for one year and 7 months had 4 different instructors and took my test 4 times , by the end I felt like giving up! I found about Angie and thought I´d have one more go , and passed first time with her! Not only is she an amazing driver she has the patience for people who don´t pick things up as fast , and has a lot of time for her students and I would recommend her to anyone! So glad I went with Angie and can´t thank her enough!:) wooo xxxx

    I passed my driving test yester and have to say that I couldn´t of done it without Angie! She is such a good instructor and helped me through every step! Thank you for everything Angie!

    Sam Crotch

    I had almost given up on ever driving, mostly through nerves, until my friend gave me Angies no. She really put me at ease & after a short while i was actually looking forward to my lessons. I past my test 1st time & am enjoying my new found freedom. I would recommend Belt Up Driving School to anyone :-D

    Mike Harney

    I´ve just started with belt up after a really bad experience with another driving school. My confidence was at an all time low and I stood today before my lesson and considered canceling. I´m so glad I didn´t , what a fantastic lesson. I left the car on a high with confidence and looking forward to my next lesson. Thankyou so very much Angie .

    Tom Martin

    I was rubbish when I started but Angie soon put me at ease and remained calm despite the numerous times I had messed up. I grew as a driver fairly quickly due to the confidence she installs in you and the effective way that things you´re expected to do are laid out to you.

    The free theory test pro online theory practice is also a massive bonus, and if used effectively it (should) see you pass your theory first time.. Unlike me!

    Definitely recommend Angie as its a good price for the tuition you get and it´s a loooovely car to drive!

    Thanks Angie!!

    James Kay

    Thank you Angie. James had struggled with his previous instructor but you really gave him confidence and helped him overcome the difficulties he experienced with his dyslexia by explaining things in different ways until he got it.

    Charlie Bettles

    I´ve just taken and passed my driving test this morning and honestly can say I couldn´t have done it without Angie :) one of the loveliest ladies I have met, so patient and dealt with my nerves brilliantly! I learnt so much, so quickly -great value for money. Thankyou so much and will miss our lessons!

    Lucy Gosling

    Angie is a brilliant instructor making each lesson very productive! She is a great teacher and has set me up for a great driving life (: She makes you feel very positive and never gives up! She works with your ability and therefore helps you in a way that is beneficial for you and what will help you progress. Thank you so much Angie and I would recommend her 100% :D x

    Asif Arif

    After previous attempts many years earlier with an uninspiring instructor I had become very apprehensive about driving. Once I worked up the courage and the funds to give it another stab I made sure this time to pick a highly recommended instructor and this led me to Angie.
    Angie quickly turned me from a nervous wreck behind the wheel to a confident driver. She is very patient, motivating and pushes her pupils to master all aspects of driving. A high standard is expected in every lesson which is great because when it was time for the test everything was very instinctive despite my nerves. Now that I´ve passed I´m pretty disappointed we won´t be able to hangout any more! Thanks for everything Angie!

    Sarah Agar

    I didn´t shop around very much for an instructor as I felt more comfortable with someone that had been recommended to me. Angie could not have been a better recommendation, she gives you a good rate and instantly makes you feel at ease the second you climb in the car.
    She has a humorous but effective way of explaining techniques and is very reassuring during your lesson.
    I can not recommend her highly enough unfortunately I have to change instructors due to a job change but she will definitely be missed and I now have high expectations for my next instructor. Thank you for kick starting my driving Angie.:).

    Emily Male

    I highly recommend having Angie as a driving instructor. She is a very patient; kind and an understanding person who was able to help build my confidence and provide me with a lot of advice. I had the most wonderful driving experience with her and if I was to repeat this again, I wouldn´t change a thing! I recommend 1000%. Thank you so much again Angie :) x.

    Laura Riley-Wallace

    What a fantastic driving instructor. The best in Plymouth, and the only one you should consider so you can pass your driving test and become a confident, sensible, knowledgeable driver.
    I genuinely never thought I´d ever drive. It was something I didn´t even think about because, well, I knew that I could never pass. I was an overly nervous learner and had tried other instructors 8-9 years ago but felt uncomfortable, unsupported… even conned. With Angie everything was just so different. Even from the first hour there was instant support. Angie never gave up on me even when I´d given up on myself. I wish I´d met her 8 years ago but I am so incredibly grateful to have met her now.
    So, to actually learn to drive, Angie at Belt Up Driving School is the only instructor you should consider. I´ve already recommended her to friends! Thank you Angie for believing in me!

    Passed my driving test today after being taught by Angie. It was my first try and I have Angie to thank for that. Best instructor who I would recommend to anyone

    Irene

    Angie is an excellent instructor as she instills confidence as well as skills. I had driven in the States for years, but was quite fearful of driving a manual transmission in the UK. She´s especially good at identifying what you need to have explained and what kind of explanation or example will work best for each student. Within one lesson, she had me not only working a manual transmission relatively well, but also understanding what I was doing and why. Similar improvement happened with each lesson, as she clearly tailors what she teaches in each one to your needs and learning style. In addition, she´s a blast to be around--I looked forward to laughing through every lesson. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Lauren Scott

    After failing a few times with a previous instructor I was losing the hope on passing, I then moved to Angie and passed first time with her with only 5 minors!she helped me with all my bad habits I gained previously and if I didn´t understand anything she would explain it to me so I became a confident driver. I would recommend Angie to anyone without hesitation she is an amazing driving instructor and I couldn´t of passed without her!thank you for everything Angie!xx.

    Jordan Newton

    I´ve had a fantastic experience learning to drive with Angie. Every lesson was exceptionally structured and I felt as if I learned something new each time. To begin with, as I´m sure it is with most people, the prospect of learning to drive was a daunting one, but it soon became something that appeared realistic. Each lesson built on the foundation of my learning.

    Passing my theory test was the first obstacle, but Angie provided a free membership to Theory Test Pro which allowed me to pass it first time. In regards to value for money, I am confident in saying that the rate is very fair. I believe that every lesson was well worth the money paid as I came away from each lesson feeling that my driving had improved in some way.

    Thank you for all your hard work Angie, I honestly don´t think I would have passed my test first time with anyone else. I recommend Belt Up Driving School 100%.

    Poppy Tank

    Angie was my instructor for my first 7 lessons (I only had to change due to my time availability changing)She gave me a brilliant foundation which enabled me to go on and pass first time and would definitely recommend her as an instructor. Thank you very much Angie :).

    Tracey Seldon

    Angie is a brilliant instructor I passed my test today after trying to pass for many years with other instructors then i came across Angie in the summer and she helped me over come many fears which I had for being on the road but and now I have passed can highly recommend think you again xx

    Nicky Clark

    After having been dropped by my previous instructor after failing my first test, I was worried about having to start again and learning new techniques. With Angie´s teaching I was able to pick up a safer and more progressive style of driving and have passed after only a few lessons. I would highly recommend this driving instructor because of her professional approach and friendly attitude.

    Martin Oatridge

    I was introduced to Angie to gain more experience during my recent Driving Instructor training, and from the start found her to be a brilliant instructor, both of learners if I was sat in the back, and for me if we were role playing with Angie as a pupil and me as the Instructor. She also allowed me to conduct some of her lessons while she watched from the back, including her own sons second lesson. Very trusting! Angie conducts her lessons very calmly, makes things very easy to understand, and has some great sayings to help learners, and pdi´s, remember things. The lessons are also fun, as she has a great sense of humour. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to drive, and as a pdi her help has been invaluable to me, and I have now passed my Part 3 as a result, allowing me to start teaching. Thanks Angie!

    Chris Amor

    I was directed towards Angie to get a bit more practice doing Instructor training and also to help her out with her Ordit. It was great having someone else to assess my progress. Angie´s roll play made it easy for me to get valuable practice with my PST´s. Angie also allowed me to sit in the back of her car to oversee lessons and also loaned me one of her students a couple of days before my Part 3 this giving me invaluable practice. With Angie´s help I passed my Part 3 first time achieving a 4/4 grade. I would highly recommend Angie if anyone is considering doing a Driving Instructors Course in Plymouth.

    Lucy Corboy

    I passed on my first attempt today after lessons with Angie and I can´t recommend her highly enough! Very positive and so patient. Angie puts the student first and always makes sure you´re happy with what you´re doing, even if it means doing a bay park 10 times in one lesson! I´m going to miss our weekly lessons. Thank you so much Angie :).
