    Emma Bourne

    whatthel2017 Emma Bourne passed with What the L Driving School My driving lessons with Mark Bentley were very enjoyable. He was punctual, polite and extremely patient.

    I passed my test quickly thanks to him which I am very grateful for. He made everything simple which made me feel very calm and confident whilst I was driving.

    He not only taught me how to get through my test, he also taught me how to be a good and safe driver. I dont feel as if I wasted a penny on driving lessons as every driving lesson was different and I also felt that I was moving forward and never backwards.

    With his tuition I passed first time which makes me feel very confident. He was very reliable even in bad weather conditions he never let me down and most importantly he made me feel safe which meant I had the chance to gain lots of experience which I know I will need.

    I know I was probably one of the more challenging students to teach as I am very impatient, but mark was very understanding and never let me doubt myself. He is not only a talented and skilful tutor but Mark is also a very kind and honest man that is extremely easy to get on with,

    I would recommend him to everyone trying to pass their test. Sometimes I wish I hadnt passed my test so soon because I miss having lessons with him, he has a great personality and sense of humour.

    I want to say a massive thankyou to him as I am so very grateful for all the time and effort he put into his lessons, I will never forget how enjoyable the lessons were and it was quite simply one of the best experiences of my life. I cant express how brilliant he is,

    10/10!

    Chris Griffin

    whatthel2017 Chris Griffin passed with What the L Driving School I am a fully qualified adi a huge part of my success was down to Mark Bentley and Jacqui Smith, both went that extra mile in making me feel calm and relaxed even though i was very tense and unsure of what i actually knew. They dug that information out of me and got me using it in a positive manner, giving me a lot more self confidence on going in for my part three. you can rest assured that learning with Mark or Jacqui in a great relaxed atmosphere that you will become a safe driver for life and will fully enjoy every minute.
    Forever in your debt kind regards
    Chris Griffin.

    Louise Mellor

    whatthel2017 Louise Mellor passed with What the L Driving School I had lessons with Mark from April 2009 - December 2009. He is an excellent instructor. I instantly felt at ease with him, he is very professional, always turns up on time and is very thorough. He very quickly got me used to handling the car and I was on a duel carriage way by my third lesson. I would definitely recommend Mark to new drivers due to his experience in instructing and ability to adapt to different kinds of people of all ages; he also knows how to crack a good joke. Even though he had a busy time table he always managed to work around me and when I was available. I passed first time after learning for just 9 months which was down to Marks encouragement and training.

    Paul Johnson

    whatthel2017 Paul Johnson passed with What the L Driving School Recently, I successfully completed an Approved Driving Instructor training course (ADI part 2 and 3). As part of my training, Mark Bentley provided me with instruction for the part 2 aspect of the test, which is the practical examination of your driving ability.

    Prior to starting the course, like many other people I suppose, I believed I was a good and safe drive. How wrong one can be!

    I soon realised just how many driving faults and bad habits I had acquired over my 30+ years on the road. Mark gently began the difficult task of rectifying these faults, which had become the norm within my driving routine.

    I found Mark to be very polite, always smart and punctual. He undoubtedly possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field, which proved absolutely invaluable to me. Mark is very professional, always calm and relaxed, approachable and never condescending. He creates an enjoyable learning environment, instills confidence and greatly improves driving ability and awareness. I can say, with hand on heart, that Marks training, advise and guidance enabled me to pass my Part 2 ADI test.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Mark as a Driving Instructor and would more than be happy to talk to anyone who is thinking of asking Mark to provide him or her with lessons.

    Thank you

    Aaron Mountford

    whatthel2017 Aaron Mountford passed with What the L Driving School was prepared and taught to drive by Mark Bentley, who I found to be very easy to get along with and available in all weather.
    Mark provided all the help and support I required in and out of lessons and also helped me out with my theory test.
    I was taught in lessons beyond what was required for my practical test, and by having this advanced knowledge I feel more confident on the road.
    When I took my test I passed first time and have no doubt that this was due to Marks structured lessons, and in-depth coverage of everything required to pass.
    Due to me passing my driving test with an increased set of skills, I have an enhanced sense of what to expect from certain situations and have gained the knowledge to deal with any situation.
    I would recommend Mark to anyone looking to learn to drive and say that I am very grateful for the things I have been taught.

    ED WHITE

    whatthel2017 ED WHITE passed with What the L Driving School My parents picked Mark as my driving instructor when I asked for lessons for my seventeenth birthday, having heard some horror stories from local driving instructors, I wasnt sure what to expect. He is a fantastic tutor, not only knowledgeable and patient but also flexible and willing to go the extra mile to help make you a safe and confident driver. Whilst on lessons he creates a relaxed atmosphere so you never feel on edge which I think made things a lot easier, his experience allows him to be highly effective at teaching you how to pass your driving test. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning with Mark and I have recommended him to my friends. I look forward to taking my pass plus with him soon!

    Natalie Stringer

    whatthel2017 Natalie Stringer passed with What the L Driving School I have currently being having lessons with Jacqui smith for about 5 months. I was with another instructor and felt I was getting nowhere and not receiving any help with my faults. Since going with Jacqui I have now past my test.I feel that finally I have had the help I needed to be able to pass my driving test. She explains everything to you and she has helped me a lot. Jacqui has a lot of patience with me and how ever many times we go over the same thing she helps me the best she can and more. With my previous instructor it was as if he lost interest but with Jacqui shes got all the time in the world for you. I think it is good when you got along with your instructor and also feel like you progress. Jacqui is a lovely person as well as a teacher to me. just want to say thanks for helping me achieve my goal. I wish you and you business all the success for you future

    Kathrine Banks

    whatthel2017 Kathrine Banks passed with What the L Driving School I have just passed my driving test at the 1st attempt and I put it all down to my instructor Jacqui Smith from What the L driving school.
    From the 1st time I sat in the car, Jacqui made me feel totally at ease. She explained the driving syllabus we would follow, to give me the best chance of passing my driving test and to make me a safe and competent driver.
    The way Jacqui explained what we would be doing on each lesson was easy to understand and if I was not sure what she had explained she would re word it until I understood.
    The patients Jacqui showed in all my lessons and the encouragement given to me was first class and I have already recommended Jacqui and What the L to my friends and would not hesitate in recommending Jacqui to anyone wishing to learn to drive.
    Thank you for all you have done

    Not only a great driver but more importantly a great teacher!
    Mark was able to change his way of instructing to fit the way that worked best for me!
    Mark creates a calm atmosphere right away that worked brilliantly to get me started.
    As my skill increased, Mark worked in more challenges to keep me constantly pushing to be better.

    Not only did Mark get me ready for my test but more importantly got me to become a safe and competent driver.

    Would highly recommend Mark to all my friends!

    Theodor Heathy

    whatthel2017 Theodor Heathy passed with What the L Driving School "Mark has been, not just a brilliant instructor, but a friend to me over the past few months.
    He managed to adapt his teaching style and time scale in order to meet my needs as a full time student; his flexibility and perseverance gave me the confidence to drive to a safe and high standard.
    A professional attitude towards teaching, while still maintaining the comfortable atmosphere during each and every lesson led me to a pass in January 2012.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Mark or indeed anyone at ´What The L´ Driving School to my friends and family who wish to do their driving practical test in the future."

    whatthel2017 Melanie passed with What the L Driving School TO ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO THINK ITS TOO LATE TO LEARN TO DRIVE. I AM 54 AND I JUST WOKE UP ONE MORNING AND THOUGHT " WHAT SHALL I DO TODAY, I KNOW ILL LEARN TO DRIVE".
    HOW LUCKY WAS I TO FIND MARK BENTLEY. I REMEMBER HIM TELLING ME IT TENDS TO TAKE THE OLDER PERSON SLIGHTLY LONGER TO LEARN BECAUSE WE ARE MORE CAUTIOUS. NO BAD THING THEN !!
    FROM DAY ONE I FELT SO AT EASE WITH MARK, HE IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL.
    HE ALWAYS ACCOMMODATES TIMES TO WORK AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE AND ARRIVES ON TIME.
    MARK IS ALWAYS DRESSED FOR THE OFFICE AND THATS HOW HE VIEWS HIS CAR.
    THERE ARE A LOT OF BAD DRIVERS ON THE ROAD, WITH MARKS INSTRUCTION , HE NOT ONLY TEACHES YOU HOW TO DRIVE BUT HOW TO COPE AND AVOID A BAD SITUATION WITH SUCH PEOPLE. SAFETY IS UPPERMOST WITH MARK AND AS YOUR LESSONS PROGRESS HE TEACHES YOU ADVANCE PLANNING WITH ANY JOURNEY YOU MAKE AND I FIND THIS INVALUABLE
    MARK HAS BECOME A TRUE FRIEND AND MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I DONT GET TO SEE HIM AS MUCH.
    I HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING MARK TO ANYONE, SO DONT WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT GIVE HIM A RING.

    Tom Grand

    whatthel2017 Tom Grand passed with What the L Driving School Hello, since i had spent 2 years on my moped, i thought it was about time id have ago at passing my driving test. I started lessons with Mark as i was told about him through two of my friends who said he was good. As i hadn´t driven a car before, i was really nervous thinking that it was harder than it looked, but with the help of Mark to calm my nerves and get me through it, i finally got comfortable driving. After i had passed my theory test, he was proud that i had passed. This then led to booking my test. Mark made sure i was up to test standard making sure all my exercises were good enough and i was a good enough driver to be able get through it. In the lesson before my test he helped me calm my nerves so that i was ready for my test. After what seemed to be a long time waiting i went of to my test, calm and comfortable, when i came back and told Mark i had passed. He was really happy that I had passed first time. I couldn´t ask much more from an instructor, he helps you through your driving and keeps his cool all of the time.
    Thanks Mark, id recommend him to anyone :)

    Jade Turner

    whatthel2017 Jade Turner passed with What the L Driving School I passed July 2010, 2nd time round and only took no more than 10 2 hour lessons.
    After failing 1st time due to me making a silly mistake Samia picked my head up and pushed me to re-take as soon as I could.
    When passed my test I only received 4 driver faults :)
    Whilst teaching me to drive Samia made me feel very relaxed and reassured that I was progressing well.
    We had fun chats whilst out on road, I felt like I had know her all my life :)
    I would recommended any of my friends to learn with Samia and will keep doing so as she was brilliant with me.

    Louise Bang

    whatthel2017 Louise Bang passed with What the L Driving School I passed my driving test yesterday and would like to thank Jacqui for being such a great instructor.

    From the very beginning Jacqui made me feel very relaxed and I always looked forward to our lessons. With her great personality and fun way of teaching Jacqui makes learning to drive a better experience than my friends have reported from other driving schools.

    After having failed a test I was sure i had passed Jacqui went the extra mile and txted me to ensure I was ok and pushed myself to carry on. If she hadnt I am sure I would have been discouraged and would have probably spent a lot longer on passing my test.

    I will be recommending Jacqui to any of my friends who wants to take their license - and especially those who feel nervous about it.

    Next step? Booking pass plus and getting some Motorway experience.

    - Louise

    whatthel2017 Ken Gratton passed with What the L Driving School A big thank you to Jacqui and Mark at "What the L Driving School" for passing on their expertise and knowledge to enable me to pass the qualifiying exams to become an ADI.
    Their commitement to each individual is second to non, they maintain a professional approach at all times, yet the learning environment is friendly and relaxed.

    They offer excellent value for money, far cheaper than many Instructor Training Companies, yet their standards are up there with the best.

    Jessica Clancy

    whatthel2017 Jessica Clancy passed with What the L Driving School I went to learn with Mark after feeling like I was getting no where with my lessons with a previous instructor. Mark has built my confidence substantially and improved my driving to a level I never thought I was capable of. I´ve learned to think more about driving rather than just doing what I´ve been taught which is much more benificial in the long run. So grateful to have found this driving school, thank you so much Mark!

    She as helped me learn all the driving skills and worked on skills that I struggled with in order to improve them for my driving test.
    I was a liitle nervous but managed to stay calm though the test, so that ddn´t effect the driving , so that was good in the end.
    I would recommend Jacqui and Whast the L driving school to anyone who wants to learn how to drive.

    Aaron Mountford

    was prepared and taught to drive by Mark Bentley, who I found to be very easy to get along with and available in all weather.
    Mark provided all the help and support I required in and out of lessons and also helped me out with my theory test.
    I was taught in lessons beyond what was required for my practical test, and by having this advanced knowledge I feel more confident on the road.
    When I took my test I passed first time and have no doubt that this was due to Marks structured lessons, and in-depth coverage of everything required to pass.
    Due to me passing my driving test with an increased set of skills, I have an enhanced sense of what to expect from certain situations and have gained the knowledge to deal with any situation.
    I would recommend Mark to anyone looking to learn to drive and say that I am very grateful for the things I have been taught.

    Jackie is a fantastic driving instructor she is firm but fair which encourages you to push yourself to learn how to drive safely and efficiently whilst still making you feel relaxed and comfortable behind the wheel. Because of her I was able to pass my test first time whilst only driving for 2 and a half months. So thank you to Jackie and what the L driving school for getting through my test.

    Tom Giannasi

    Learning to drive with Mark was a brilliant experience!
    Not only a great driver but more importantly a great teacher!
    Mark was able to change his way of instructing to fit the way that worked best for me!
    Mark creates a calm atmosphere right away that worked brilliantly to get me started.
    As my skill increased, Mark worked in more challenges to keep me constantly pushing to be better.

    Not only did Mark get me ready for my test but more importantly got me to become a safe and competent driver.

    Would highly recommend Mark to all my friends!

    Jerome Insaidoo

    I 100% recommend using Jacqui
    After failing my first driving test I felt demoralised and found it difficult to focus on trying again. However Jacqui gave me a lot encourage and reassured me that I am a good driver and I could pass, and with that I soon after passed.
    She’s understanding, calm and will ensure you are fully ready to take a driving test before booking one, if I was to pick a driving instructor it would be her 1000 times, definitely recommending to friends.

    Daniel Machin

    Feeling really good as I have passed my driving test for the 1st time with only 2 driver faults, thanks to my instructor Jacqui Smith of What the L driving school.
    Jacqui has taught me from my very 1st driving lesson through to my driving test. Jacqui as been an excellent tutor, patient, approachable and has an encouraging sense of humour making lesson very enjoyable.
    I would recommend Jacqui and What the L driving school to anyone wishing to learn how to drive.
    Thanks again Jacqui its been a good experience and I have enjoyed it.

    I was recomended to Mark by another driving instructor. On my first lesson he made me feel at ease when I made a mistake. He is calm and patient which was fantastic. He tought me great skills for modern day driving and reinforced them so they will stay with me for life. He is also a very funny man, so lessons were something to look forward too. I recommend Mark to anyone who feels anxious about getting in a car and learning for the first time. Thank you What The L.

    mary banks

    Well from the start I didn´t want to drive a manual car but Jacqui got me through it and in a pretty quick time
    I got the grasp of the clutch and I´m thrilled!
    Id definitely recommend her
    Extremely flexible and works around you
    I searched for ages trying to find an instructor as I needed to be passed quickly because of work

    Jenny Colclough

    After passing my driving test yesterday I would like to thank Neil Thomas who is a fabulous driving instructor.
    Being a single mum with a fulltime job and having very limited time, Neil has always worked around me and squeezed me in at short notice, which has been a big help.
    Neil has always made my driving lessons enjoyable and has been very encouraging. Even when I have found myself getting frustrated at times.
    Neil prepared me very well for my driving test, texting me the night before my theory test with questions and the night before my driving test with the show me tell me questions.
    I have enjoyed every minute and its been the best money I have ever spent.
    I cant tell you enough what a difference being able to drive is going to make to mine and my childrens life.
    Thankyou very much ´What The L´ :) :)

    Kimberley Pyatt

    I have not long since been passed my driving test!

    Having had driving instructors before who just clearly wanted money from me and weren't interested in teaching me how to drive. I was happily surprised when I had my 1st driving lesson with Mark and we learnt maneuvers and left and right turns.

    Mark always strived to teach me everything and beyond the driving syllabus along with lots of helpful tips for when I passed.

    Despite not passing 1st time due to really bad nerves, Mark Bentley really helped me get to the bottom of what was causing the problem. I also struggled with the ability of being able to remember directions due to being dyslexic, but once again Mark really showed me how to combat this using different driving techniques which were really useful.

    With What the L you don't just get a driving school, you get great advise and tips to make you not just a good driver but a brilliant, safe and competent driver. I would definitely recommend Mark to those who are feeling nervous or hesitant about learning to drive.

    Thank you for being patient with me and helping me to pass.

    Liam Hulme

    I would like to thank Mark, he is a brilliant instructor who helped me to pass first time. He was really calm, even when I made mistakes which helped me to improve my driving abilities. The lessons went well, he allowed me to choose myself what to practice during the lesson, instead of him telling me what I´m doing every week. This allowed me to enjoy the lessons even more as I had a good element of control over my lessons, helping me to develop my independence in the car. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who wants to learn to drive.

    Karen Hammersley

    Thank you so much to Jacqui smith.
    I was so nervous on my first lesson, She made me feel very comfortable and made learning to drive easy. I passed first time.
    I would recommend WHAT THE L driving school to everyone.

    Today I passed my driving test 1st time thanks to my very good driving instructor Jacqui. She gave me good enjoyable driving lessons and was very friendly and patient. I enjoyed every lesson I had with her and we had quite a few laughs. It not just support I got from Jacqui, Mark her business partner came to the test centre too to see how I had got on, so not only do you get support from your instructor it's from the whole of the company as well. I couldn't of done it with out Jacqui's help and guidance and I thank her loads x

    Jem Rowlins

    I just passed my driving test with Jacqui, and I couldn´t have asked for a better instructor! She is an excellent instructor who is very patient and reassuring throughout each lesson. She helped to build my confidence with the certain areas of driving which weren´t my strongest and had lots of patience when doing so! She has a funny ´say what you think´ sense of humour which instantly relaxes you when you first get into the car and makes it feel more of a catch up than a driving lesson which helps with any nerves or worries! Would definitely recommend Jacqui to anyone who wants to start lessons, she will help you become a confident driver with lots of laughs along the way! Big thank you Jacqui xxx

    Nory Hussen

    Jacqui is an amazing driving instructor, helped me thoroughly and never made me uncomfortable, from the beginning to the end she was very patient with me and taught me everything, I would fully recommend her for anyone looking to take driving lessons and wish her all the best for the future.

    Adam O 'Malley

    Started having lessons with Karl in June 2012 just after the birth of my son. From day 1 Karl was thorough, professional and friendly throughout, he taught me what I needed to know and how to drive at my own pace. Failed my first 2 tests due to silly mistakes and lack of concentration but Karl helped my to keep my chin up and constantly reassured me that I can drive and I would pass. Took my 3rd test in January and passed with 2 minors.

    Was a pleasure to learn with Karl, not just an instructor but a friend as well, Would recommend to anybody and pretty soon my Partner will be taking lessons with him too.

    Thanks again Karl

    Sam Nicholls

    I passed first time. ..
    I had lessons with both Mark and jacqui.
    i found both instructors informative and easy to get on with would recoment to anyone

    Liam Nicholls

    With reference to my 9 months of driving lessons with What The L, please see below summary

    " I first started to have lessons with Jacqui as beginner driver with no experience at all before I later started to be taught by Mark, so of course i was expected make mistakes. It can sometimes be embarrassing or even frightening when you are on the roads. However Jacqui and Mark and excellent Customer Service Skills and Mentoring Skills to teach you how drive safely and calmly with been under pressure. I have learnt all the basics from, changing gears, turn in the roads, observations, reversing etc etc... One of core skills Jacqui & Mark have is patience with the pupil, they are both calm and teach you all the aspects of safe driving in order to enable you to be "TEST READY" with Jacqui's & Mark's help, I passed my test 1st time. I would not hesitate to advise any learners to use Jacqui's & Mark's services to become a safe driver on the road."

    Dean Simkin

    Would really like to thank Mark and Jacqui for teaching me everything I needed to know to be able to pass my driving test 1st time.
    I was really pleased with it and I would recommend them to other people.
    Thanks again for everything you have done for me .
    Take care both of you

    Emma Bourne

    My driving lessons with Mark Bentley were very enjoyable. He was punctual, polite and extremely patient.

    I passed my test quickly thanks to him which I am very grateful for. He made everything simple which made me feel very calm and confident whilst I was driving.

    He not only taught me how to get through my test, he also taught me how to be a good and safe driver. I dont feel as if I wasted a penny on driving lessons as every driving lesson was different and I also felt that I was moving forward and never backwards.

    With his tuition I passed first time which makes me feel very confident. He was very reliable even in bad weather conditions he never let me down and most importantly he made me feel safe which meant I had the chance to gain lots of experience which I know I will need.

    I know I was probably one of the more challenging students to teach as I am very impatient, but mark was very understanding and never let me doubt myself. He is not only a talented and skilful tutor but Mark is also a very kind and honest man that is extremely easy to get on with,

    I would recommend him to everyone trying to pass their test. Sometimes I wish I hadnt passed my test so soon because I miss having lessons with him, he has a great personality and sense of humour.

    I want to say a massive thankyou to him as I am so very grateful for all the time and effort he put into his lessons, I will never forget how enjoyable the lessons were and it was quite simply one of the best experiences of my life. I cant express how brilliant he is,

    10/10!

    Would like to thank Jacqui at what the L driving for giving me support and confidence to pass my test 1st attempt.
    Best ever!

    Ben Nicklin

    After having an absence from driving for 6 years I was worried about continuing my driving again. However, my instructor Mark immediately gave me confidence in my ability as well as taking consideration into understanding me as a person and a driver. He was very flexible and catered to my availability needs, ensuring that I a had maximum support, Without him and his charismatic personality and reassurance, I would not have passed 1st time. Highly recommend!

    jacob

    A big thank you to Jacqui, a great instructor
    She was able to identify areas which needed improvement the most, then chose a teaching method to get my skills to test ready ability
    I would recommend What the L Driving School to anyone wanting to learn how to drive

    Evelin Salzer

    I passed my test on the 2nd March after taking lessons with Jacqui.
    She is an excellent instructor, that calmed my nerves when needed.
    Jacqui even took the time to learn some Spanish to help me with instructions.
    I really enjoyed my driving lessons and now am looking forward to my pass plus.
    I highly recommend ´What the L´ driving school.
    Thank you Jacquixxxx

    Hello, since i had spent 2 years on my moped, i thought it was about time id have ago at passing my driving test. I started lessons with Mark as i was told about him through two of my friends who said he was good. As i hadn´t driven a car before, i was really nervous thinking that it was harder than it looked, but with the help of Mark to calm my nerves and get me through it, i finally got comfortable driving. After i had passed my theory test, he was proud that i had passed. This then led to booking my test. Mark made sure i was up to test standard making sure all my exercises were good enough and i was a good enough driver to be able get through it. In the lesson before my test he helped me calm my nerves so that i was ready for my test. After what seemed to be a long time waiting i went of to my test, calm and comfortable, when i came back and told Mark i had passed. He was really happy that I had passed first time. I couldn´t ask much more from an instructor, he helps you through your driving and keeps his cool all of the time.
    Thanks Mark, id recommend him to anyone :)

    After a year of taking driving lessons with a previous instructor, I was introduced to Jacqui Smith from What the L driving school.
    She came highly recommended by my auntie, who is also taking lessons with her.
    Jacqui instantly made me feel at ease and relaxed during my driving lessons and helped me grow in confidence while driving.
    On the 10th September 2011 I passed my driving test thanks to Jacqui Smith.
    I highly recommend anyone who is looking into doing their driving lessons to pick What the L driving school.
    Thank you for everything Jacqui.

    Massive thank you to mark for getting me through my test. Mark has a totally different style of teaching and is very patient and friendly. Made me feel like I could actually do it and has given me so much confidence. Even my parent noticed such a diffence in my attitude towards driving since going with What The L. couldn´t recommend them more! Thank you so much :) x

    Natalie Steel

    I found the lessons with Jacqui enjoyable and informative as well as being great value.
    The flexibility of times of lessons was ideal and I feel I recieved more than enough driving experience with a good instructor to prepare me for my driving test in a relatively short amount of time.
    I really enjoyed learning to drive with Jacqui and What the L driving school. x

    Joanne Tipping

    A few years ago I took my test 3 times and failedeach one... I started to take lessons with Jacqui a few months back and managed to pass my test 1st time . My 1st lesson with Jacqui I remember being very nervous and hated roundabouts and dual carriageways, in just a few weeks I was driving on both and with the help of Jacquis patience and confiedence in me. If I found anything difficult she would explain and find away so I would understand. I found Jacqui easy to get on with and we had laughs along the way. I would recommend Jacqui and What the L highly to all my family and friends as I don't think I could of done it so easily without her. I wish Jacqui and Mark all the best and thank her for how she has helped me to become more independent

    Thanks to mark I have overcome my nerves and passed my driving test.
    I enjoyed learning to drive with Mark he is an excellent driving instructor who helps you every step of the way.
    You get fully supported from the whole of What the L driving school. Even when Mark was on holiday he arranged for one of the other driving instructors to cover my lesson whist he was away. I found my one lesson with Jacqui very helpful.
    I will be continuing my lessons with Mark doing a btec in safe driving. I am so glad I have passed in the time scale I set. Thanks to What the L driving school and Mark

    i managed to pass very quickly before my exams!
    Thank you!

    Matt Banner

    I never had the confidence to go for my test before, after numerous years of driving on and off. With Mark however, I soon built that courage and managed to pass my practical first time. He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable driving instructors I know and I will always be grateful. Thank you.

    Michael Hawkings

    I passed my test a few week ago with mark and if your after an guy that will develop you for the challenges of driving then I throughly recommend him.
    He helped me become a safe responsible driver always considering the way I and others drive their vehicle.
    He used various different coaching techniques and always allowed and even pushed me sometimes to set my own goals to further my development.
    He helped me look at what challenges me and also to consider what I did and didn´t know.
    He was always positive and turned things I thought where negatives into positives.
    Thanks Mark

    I had lessons with Mark from April 2009 - December 2009. He is an excellent instructor. I instantly felt at ease with him, he is very professional, always turns up on time and is very thorough. He very quickly got me used to handling the car and I was on a duel carriage way by my third lesson. I would definitely recommend Mark to new drivers due to his experience in instructing and ability to adapt to different kinds of people of all ages; he also knows how to crack a good joke. Even though he had a busy time table he always managed to work around me and when I was available. I passed first time after learning for just 9 months which was down to Marks encouragement and training.

    Ryan

    I was recommended to use What The L driving school by my cousin. From the word go Mark Bentley was a fantastic instructor. He is very patient, thorough, calm, and professional. No matter how many mistakes I made he still gave me the confidence to continue learning and to go on and pass my driving test. He´s a funny guy, who is very easy to get along with which makes lessons much more pleasant and fun. He focuses on teaching safe and practical modern driving techniques that will stay with me now that I have passed my test, I learnt so much more than the basic driving skills needed to pass my test. Skills that I feel make me a much better driver, well equipped to cope in modern busy traffic situations. I would highly recommend Mark as an instructor, and I am so grateful for all the help, advice and support that he has given me whilst teaching me to become a good driver.
    Thanks Mark. Your the best.

    Jamie

    When I first started driving lessons I had no confidence. My legs used to shake uncontrollably and the 3 previous driving instructors I had before Jacqui didn´t really work on confidence building
    When I started driving lessons with Jacqui, she worked on building my confidence. Lots of work on roundabouts which I really struggled with. Also she made me invited onto every lesson I had.
    I wouldn´t of ever passed my driving test without Jacqui helping along.
    I would highly recommend Jacqui to any learner driver that struggles

    Hi, I just wanted to send you this message to thank you for ur patience wile you were teaching me to drive, and for helping me understand all I needed to know to pass my test, I can´t tell you how happy I am now I´ve passed and I owe it all to you thank you so very much Awat

    Amy Brookes

    I would highly recommend Jacqui Smith she always constantly reassured and praised me and I always felt safe and in control of what I was doing. I had had a couple of driving instructor before Jacqui and I felt like I never really understood things fully.Jacqui always made sure she explained thing fully and it didn't matter how many times we had to go over a subject, she never lost her patience with me or made me feel small. I past 1st time and then went on to do pass plus with her. I really felt that not only was she my driving instructor but she had become a role model and a friend too.
    Thank you for what you helped me to achieve, I have since been able to get the job I was after due to being able to drive. I would highly recommend What the L driving school 10/10.

    Kathrine Banks

    I have just passed my driving test at the 1st attempt and I put it all down to my instructor Jacqui Smith from What the L driving school.
    From the 1st time I sat in the car, Jacqui made me feel totally at ease. She explained the driving syllabus we would follow, to give me the best chance of passing my driving test and to make me a safe and competent driver.
    The way Jacqui explained what we would be doing on each lesson was easy to understand and if I was not sure what she had explained she would re word it until I understood.
    The patients Jacqui showed in all my lessons and the encouragement given to me was first class and I have already recommended Jacqui and What the L to my friends and would not hesitate in recommending Jacqui to anyone wishing to learn to drive.
    Thank you for all you have done

    aaron

    Learning to drive with Jacqueline has been a throughly enjoyable experience through and through
    I was set a short time frame in which to try to pass my driving test in order to start a new job
    Jacqui was more than happy to help me as much as she could
    Her instruction was relaxed and fair, which created a great learning environment
    The 10/10 overall, absolutely fantastic instructor , passed 1st time

    Tania Burgess

    I took out a fast track course with Mark.
    I needed to pass my test quickly as I am expecting a baby shortly. I did 3 hours driving over 8 days (around 25 hours with 2 hours held back for test) Mark gave me the confidence that I needed on the roads. His can do attitude 'drove' me to succeed. I am not at my smallest, turning and twisting in the car could be difficult, Mark took all this in his stride and spurred me on to get it done to the best of my ability. I passed my test on a Saturday morning! The fast track course does have a lot of information that you have to take on board all at once and you MUST REMEMBER for your test. I gave up everything else just to focus on driving to ensure I passed first time. I would recommend a fast track course if you are very short of time. I will be taking out Pass Plus in the near future as there are areas I would like to go over. Mark is an amazing driving instructor and makes you feel relaxed within minutes of meeting him. I owe him a lot and am very grateful for his patience's and time. Thanks so much and I will keep in touch. I will send any new learners your way. Thanks again Mark

    After trying to pass my driving test several times with a different instructor, and having no success, I changed to What The L driving school. After only a few lessons I finally passed my driving test.
    Highly recommend What The L, Mark is a calm and patient instructor.

    ´Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test, first time!
    You made learning more fun and interesting, and practiced with more real life situations which makes you become more confident about being a driver.
    The experience was friendly and relaxed which helps a lot when your feeling nervous about taking to the road and i think its one the things that helped me towards my pass!´

    Emmie Hughes

    "I had Mark Bentley as an instructor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone learning to drive. I had lessons with a different instructor previously, but after I started learning with Mark I realised that learning to drive doesn't have to be stressful! I was quite a nervous driver, but Mark helped me gain confidence. He is always professional and flexible with lessons. He explains things clearly and helps you improve things that you struggle with. He is patient and really focuses on teaching you to be a good driver, as well as passing your test. Thanks again Mark!"

    "Mark has been, not just a brilliant instructor, but a friend to me over the past few months.
    He managed to adapt his teaching style and time scale in order to meet my needs as a full time student; his flexibility and perseverance gave me the confidence to drive to a safe and high standard.
    A professional attitude towards teaching, while still maintaining the comfortable atmosphere during each and every lesson led me to a pass in January 2012.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Mark or indeed anyone at ´What The L´ Driving School to my friends and family who wish to do their driving practical test in the future."

    I wish you every luck in the future Mark, and I´ll contact you soon regarding the motorway lesson!

    I learnt to drive with Jacqui from What the L, she was so good.
    If I was nervous she would be able to calm me down.
    She was very patient with me and this enabled me to pass my driving test 1st time all thanks to Jacqui.
    I would definetly highly recommend What the L driving school, they are brill xxx

    I really appreciate the support and the patience that Jacqui showed to me
    I wouldn´t be able to have passed my driving test without her keen eye for the detail, which helped me work on my weaknesses and to be able to pass the driving test 1st time

    Recently, I successfully completed an Approved Driving Instructor training course (ADI part 2 and 3). As part of my training, Mark Bentley provided me with instruction for the part 2 aspect of the test, which is the practical examination of your driving ability.

    Prior to starting the course, like many other people I suppose, I believed I was a good and safe drive. How wrong one can be!

    I soon realised just how many driving faults and bad habits I had acquired over my 30+ years on the road. Mark gently began the difficult task of rectifying these faults, which had become the norm within my driving routine.

    I found Mark to be very polite, always smart and punctual. He undoubtedly possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field, which proved absolutely invaluable to me. Mark is very professional, always calm and relaxed, approachable and never condescending. He creates an enjoyable learning environment, instills confidence and greatly improves driving ability and awareness. I can say, with hand on heart, that Marks training, advise and guidance enabled me to pass my Part 2 ADI test.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Mark as a Driving Instructor and would more than be happy to talk to anyone who is thinking of asking Mark to provide him or her with lessons.

    I would just like to say a very big thank you to Neil Thomas. He made learning to drive a fun experience. I started to learn with Neil on my 17th Birthday back in March.
    After two months I passed my theory test and Neil was a great help with this. On Friday 7th September after 5 months.
    I took my test and passed first time, with only two minor faults. Once again cheers Neil couldn’t off asked for a better instructor and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is thinking of starting to learn.

    Lisa Bellerby

    The day of your 1st driving lesson your as nervous as hell, wondering what your driving instructor is going to be like, thinking what to say but Jacqui puts you at ease from the off. I felt like I had known her for ages.
    Jacqui makes learning to drive so much fun and knows how to get the best out of you. Its really cleaver how just by talking to you and asking you questions she teaches you the theory at the same time as the driving side.
    I'm so glad now that back on a rainy Sunday in January 2011 looking on the Internet at driving schools close to Biddulph I chose to ring Jacqui at What the L driving school, shes been a brilliant instructor and friend. Shes helped me to gain my independence as a safe confident driver.
    I also told Jacqui that when I've past my test I'd get my husband to drive me to work when it snows, because I am nervous about driving in the snow. Jacqui said just give me a ring and I'll give you a lesson in the snow. So even when you've past your driving test Jacqui and What the L driving school is still there for help and advise if you need it.
    Don't delay book you 1st lesson today.
    Thank you so much Jacqui
    love Lisa

    Just wanna say thank you to Jacqueline and Co, I was a pain in the butt but she kept at me to not give up and I´m all passed! Happily recommend WhatTheL to anyone. Thank you all again! :) x

    Aminah Ahmed

    My driving instructor Samia was always friendly and professional. Always on time to lessons.
    She was very patient and her knowledge of the area and of the test program meant that even I was able to pass my driving test.
    She made me feel comfortable and confident. She was always calm and explained everything to me in detail as much as I needed.
    It was a pleasure to spend time with her during the lessons. I not only find a great instructor in Samia but also a great mentor and friend. I would recommend her 100%. She will make sure you pass.

    Mariya Azeem

    I passed my test first time after taking lessons with Samia and Mark.
    They both are very friendly people, who will help you overcome your nerves. On the day of my test i was very very nervous and didn't think I would pass but thanks to Mark, he calmed me down and helped me overcome my nerves.
    I would recommend these to anyone looking for instructors as you will have fun during your lessons as well as learn to drive.
    Thanks a lot Samia and Mark. x

    Learning to drive with Mark was a very enjoyable experience. He has a great personality and makes learning to drive fun.

    Sian Blenkinsop

    After learning to drive with two previous qualified instructors for over a year I still didn´t feel like I had been taught to test standard, and when I got in touch with Mark Bentley from What the L driving school I was pretty unconfident with some aspects of my driving. Mark was very patient and helped me to believe in myself and taught me to be a confident, safe driver. It was such an amazing feeling when I passed my test, I´d recommend Mark to anyone who wanted to take driving lessons, I honestly don´t think I would of passed if it wasn´t down to Mark´s encouragement.

    Thank you so much Mark, bestest luck in the future.

    After being unsuccessful with DRIVING INSTRUCTORS in the past, I decided to do an intense DRIVING course with Jacqui.
    I couldn´t have found a better DRIVING INSTRUCTOR. She made me feel at ease and helped my confidence.
    I have no doubt that without her i would not have passed first time. THANK YOU JACQUI! Xx

    Marcus George

    i passed first time with no minors and got the mark for safe and eco driving.

    I have had Neil Thomas for 9 months and he is one heck of a good and funny instructor. he teached me A-Z in what he knows and maintained me in a good and happy drive . Neil is a good asset for the what the L company and I would rate him 10 out of 10, the moment I found out I passed, he was first person in my mind to see and show.
    Neil is a nice person to talk to especially about football, he will treat you like a real good friend. took my from dark sides to the bright side.
    Thanks neil
    Thanks what the L for everything

    Jacqui is a great tutor, very friendly and certainly knows her stuff.
    I would definitely recommend ´what the l´ to anyone wanting to pass 1st time.
    Overall I really enjoyed the experience and wasbover the moon I passed.

    Jessica Petal

    I am now a fully qualified ADI and it's all thanks to Jacqui and Mark!!!

    They gave me great feedback so i knew where my weak points were, they made it fun so it made me less nervous and there was always a new way of doing somehting if i didnt get it the first time. During this past year of my training, it was a difficult journey alot of ups and downs but it helps when you have great trainers who will fulfill your specific needs and help 110%. There number of words i can use to describe my time with Jacqui and Mark but you need to see it for yourself!

    Just wanna say a BIIIG thanks again! 10/10

    I appreciate the patience and support from Mark as I had not had good experience with previous instructors. I couldn´t recommend anybody better for passing your test with, Mark never let me give up when a test didn´t go the way I wanted and encouraged me to rebook. Mark is a friendly and funny person and makes you feel so comfortable on your lessons. He is a brilliant instructor, he explains everything clearly thankyou so much Mark, couldn´t of asked for a better instructor :-)!xx

    I´ve been learning too drive with Mark for 12 months. Brilliant instructor, efficient and reliable. Would recommend to anybody. He helped me much more than any previous instructors, helping me identify my mistakes and weaknesses and was always on time for lessons

    I had 27 hrs altogether, he made me very easy and relaxed.
    Neil is a very good driving instructor, he gives you the confidence you need to pass your driving test, the first time which I did.
    Thanks Neil for your time and all your hard work. Hope I was a good pupil?

    Just want to say a massive thank you to Jacqui, who without her patience and understanding I wouldn´t have passed my driving test with only 5 driver faults

    TO ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO THINK ITS TOO LATE TO LEARN TO DRIVE. I AM 54 AND I JUST WOKE UP ONE MORNING AND THOUGHT " WHAT SHALL I DO TODAY, I KNOW ILL LEARN TO DRIVE".
    HOW LUCKY WAS I TO FIND MARK BENTLEY. I REMEMBER HIM TELLING ME IT TENDS TO TAKE THE OLDER PERSON SLIGHTLY LONGER TO LEARN BECAUSE WE ARE MORE CAUTIOUS. NO BAD THING THEN !!
    FROM DAY ONE I FELT SO AT EASE WITH MARK, HE IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL.
    HE ALWAYS ACCOMMODATES TIMES TO WORK AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE AND ARRIVES ON TIME.
    MARK IS ALWAYS DRESSED FOR THE OFFICE AND THATS HOW HE VIEWS HIS CAR.
    THERE ARE A LOT OF BAD DRIVERS ON THE ROAD, WITH MARKS INSTRUCTION , HE NOT ONLY TEACHES YOU HOW TO DRIVE BUT HOW TO COPE AND AVOID A BAD SITUATION WITH SUCH PEOPLE. SAFETY IS UPPERMOST WITH MARK AND AS YOUR LESSONS PROGRESS HE TEACHES YOU ADVANCE PLANNING WITH ANY JOURNEY YOU MAKE AND I FIND THIS INVALUABLE
    MARK HAS BECOME A TRUE FRIEND AND MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I DONT GET TO SEE HIM AS MUCH.
    I HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING MARK TO ANYONE, SO DONT WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT GIVE HIM A RING.

    I joined what the L driving school after a recommendation and my instructor was Jacqui Smith.
    Lessons with Jacqui were fun and I felt instantly comfortable with her.
    I failed 4 driving tests with minor mistakes which irritated us both but I got there in the end and passed this week.
    Jacqui taught me in ways that stuck in my head and I never made the same mistake twice.
    I couldn´t of asked for a better instuctor and I´d recommend what the L to anybody thinking of learning how to drive.
    Thank you to jacqui for being my friend and a brilliant instructor ´

    Aneta Kordowska

    I learned to drive with Jacqui the Best instructor ever!

    After many years of taking driving lessons, I finally found a driving instructor who I felt comfortable with, making my lessons fun and easy to learn.
    I feel like I learnt so many things and that's the reason I passed my driving test 1st time with What the L driving school. Also Jacqui believed in me and my driving ability and that was the main thing I needed, that someone believed I could pass my driving test !!!
    Thank you so much Jacqui :-)

    I had Mark Bentley as a instructor, he was great, down to earth and made me feel relaxed. He helped me to gain my confidence in driving which helped me to finally pass my driving test. He learnt me different ways of doing things which makes driving so much easier and will help me in the long run. He is a good teacher.
    I would and will recommend to anybody wanting to learn drive.

    I did my adi training with mark and jacqui. part 2 with jacqui who i would highly recommend, she has a very professional approach and her teaching skills are of a very high standard. this meant that i passed part 2 the first time. i did my part 3 training with mark, who i would also very highly recommend for the same reasons as jacqui. i passed part 3 the second time with a 4/4.they where both there to support me and make me feel at ease even when nerves got the better of me. now i am very pleased to say i am now a qualified driving instructor with what the l driving school. i cant thank mark and jacqui enough. thank you xx

    Jade Turner

    I passed July 2010, 2nd time round and only took no more than 10 2 hour lessons.
    After failing 1st time due to me making a silly mistake Samia picked my head up and pushed me to re-take as soon as I could.
    When passed my test I only received 4 driver faults :)
    Whilst teaching me to drive Samia made me feel very relaxed and reassured that I was progressing well.
    We had fun chats whilst out on road, I felt like I had know her all my life :)
    I would recommended any of my friends to learn with Samia and will keep doing so as she was brilliant with me.

    My parents picked Mark as my driving instructor when I asked for lessons for my seventeenth birthday, having heard some horror stories from local driving instructors, I wasnt sure what to expect. He is a fantastic tutor, not only knowledgeable and patient but also flexible and willing to go the extra mile to help make you a safe and confident driver. Whilst on lessons he creates a relaxed atmosphere so you never feel on edge which I think made things a lot easier, his experience allows him to be highly effective at teaching you how to pass your driving test. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning with Mark and I have recommended him to my friends. I look forward to taking my pass plus with him soon!

    I learned to drive with Mark after being recomended too by a friend. Mark was patient with me and honest. He gave me confidence and used a technique that was unique to me. I struggled with certain areas of driving, but Mark came up with some mad ways of explaing to me how to achieve these goals, ways that I could relate too. Not only did he learn me to drive but he also learned me to drive safley! Since passing I have had a few near misses, not through anything I've done wrong, but other drivers! Mark instilled in me to always be looking and thinking ahead and it's these teachings that have kept me safe. When I drive I can always hear Mark in my head! I would recommend this driving school to anyone and everyone. Fantastic guy, book them today.

    I had my driving lessons with Jacqui Smith and I would highly recommend her. She always constantly reassured and praised me and I always felt a safe and in controlled driver. I had another driving instructor before I started my driving lessons with Jacqui and I felt like I wasn't learning to my full potential or aware of what was going on around me. I felt that I didn't have much confidence but Jacqui changed that as she always helped me with things I couldn't get right and never lost her patience with me. I started my driving lessons with Jacqui for only a few months before I passed my driving test 1st time. She was my instructor but also became a friend to me. Thank you for all your help and I would highly recommend What The L Driving School

    I have currently being having lessons with Jacqui smith for about 5 months. I was with another instructor and felt I was getting nowhere and not receiving any help with my faults. Since going with Jacqui I have now past my test.I feel that finally I have had the help I needed to be able to pass my driving test. She explains everything to you and she has helped me a lot. Jacqui has a lot of patience with me and how ever many times we go over the same thing she helps me the best she can and more. With my previous instructor it was as if he lost interest but with Jacqui shes got all the time in the world for you. I think it is good when you got along with your instructor and also feel like you progress. Jacqui is a lovely person as well as a teacher to me. just want to say thanks for helping me achieve my goal. I wish you and you business all the success for you future

Jacqui made my driving lessons very enjoyable and fun to. I wasn't very good at left reverse, she was very patient and helped me to perfect the maneuver. Thank you so much.

    Louise Bang

    I passed my driving test yesterday and would like to thank Jacqui for being such a great instructor.

    From the very beginning Jacqui made me feel very relaxed and I always looked forward to our lessons. With her great personality and fun way of teaching Jacqui makes learning to drive a better experience than my friends have reported from other driving schools.

    After having failed a test I was sure i had passed Jacqui went the extra mile and txted me to ensure I was ok and pushed myself to carry on. If she hadnt I am sure I would have been discouraged and would have probably spent a lot longer on passing my test.

    I will be recommending Jacqui to any of my friends who wants to take their license - and especially those who feel nervous about it.

    Next step? Booking pass plus and getting some Motorway experience.

    - Louise

    I would recommend anyone to have lessons with Mark

    Ken Gratton

    A big thank you to Jacqui and Mark at "What the L Driving School" for passing on their expertise and knowledge to enable me to pass the qualifiying exams to become an ADI.
    Their commitement to each individual is second to non, they maintain a professional approach at all times, yet the learning environment is friendly and relaxed.

    They offer excellent value for money, far cheaper than many Instructor Training Companies, yet their standards are up there with the best.
    I wouldn´t hesitate to recommend their school for learner tuition and also anyone wishing to progress onto becoming an ADI.

    I found the lessons fun and you made me feel confident behind the wheel. I felt comfortable while on my lessons which helped me become a better driver and pass my driving test. I would recommend you to anyone x

    Passed first time, got instruction from both Jacqui and Mark. Were both friendly, easy to get on with, informative and excellent instructors.
    Would not hesitate in recommending to anyone!
    Thanks again Jacqui, can´t keep the smile off my face :) x

    I passed my test on 24/5/12, after a few attempts (because of my nerves) Jacqui encouraged me not to give up and keep trying, she has a great way of explaining things in a different way when you don't get it the first time and will keep on getting you to do things until you've got it right. She's really friendly and funny and made me feel at ease straight away, i'd really recommend her as an instructor especially if you are a bit of a nervous person. Thanks for everything xxx

    After studying for my ADI exams with the 1 of the UKs largest motoring organisation, I failed part 3 twice on a 2/2.
    I finally passed third time after just 12 hours coaching with a 4/5.
    What The L is a professional company with flexible approaches.
    Their experience and expertise got me through my qualification.
    I only wish I had done the whole course from the start with them.
    I am now pleased to say that I am establishing my career as an instructor with What the L driving school.
    Many Thanks
    Karl.

    I want to say a huge thank you to Jacqui, without you it wouldn´t of been possible to pass my driving test
    I would recommend you to anybody wanting to learn how to drive
    Your calm and collected and incredibly patient, when at times I´m sure you wanted to kill me lol
    I cannot thank you enough for the tips, support and moral you gave me and for accomidating my stupidly early morning lessons
    Best phone call I ever made xx

    I am a fully qualified adi a huge part of my success was down to Mark Bentley and Jacqui Smith, both went that extra mile in making me feel calm and relaxed even though i was very tense and unsure of what i actually knew. They dug that information out of me and got me using it in a positive manner, giving me a lot more self confidence on going in for my part three. you can rest assured that learning with Mark or Jacqui in a great relaxed atmosphere that you will become a safe driver for life and will fully enjoy every minute.
    Forever in your debt kind regards
    Chris Griffin.

    I would highly recommend anyone learning to drive to use What the L Driving. I had lessons with Mark, and passed on my second attempt. Mark is a very good driving instructor, he makes the lessons relaxed and friendly, and is very good at accommodating what you need. He explained things clearly, and listened when I explained what I was struggling with. He is a patient instructor and focuses on making you a good driver, not just aiming to get you to pass your test. Would definitely recommend, can´t thank him enough "

    Many thanks again for all your help! Couldn´t have passed without you.

    I have just passed my driving test on 22/05/12 after learning for just over 4 months. I couldn´t have asked for a better instructor! Jacqui made me feel so comfortable and at ease I felt like she was more a friend than my instructor. Any worries or problems i had i knew i could ask or tell her anything, especially when it came to test day, she made me very calm and relaxed. I don´t think i could of got through it without her, and i would recommend her to anyonewithout any hesitation what so ever, jacqui is an amazing driving instructor and i can´t and will never be able to thank her enough for all of her help.
