As part of my driver training with the St John Ambulance I was fortunate to have two days one to one training with Angela Payne to bring me up to a standard where I could take the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test.  I needed to attain either a Silver or Gold pass with RoSPA before I could apply for a Response (Blue Light) course.  During my training I can say that Angela quickly discovered my weak points but her patience and determination to get me to drive in accordance with Roadcraft were delivered in a friendly yet firm way which made me feel that she really wanted me to succeed.  I took the RoSPA  test a couple of months later and was awarded a Gold Pass, some months later I got a week long response course and I passed that as well.  I am now training to be a voluntary advanced driver tutor for RoSPA and all these driving steps started for me with the advanced training I received from Angela.  I believe my enthusiasm and confidence for advanced driving began during my two days driver training with Angela and so I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Having taken my driving test many decades ago – I thought I should try the ‘Advanced Driving Test’.  I was allocated Angie as my ‘Advanced Instructor’Used to taking the St John Ambulance drivers through their paces, I thought Angie might be quite scary!
I could not have been more wrong. Extremely knowledgeable, patient, accomplished, and charming – but certainly in charge. I learnt so much in a couple of sessions with Angie, my driving, awareness, and technique improved beyond measure. I would not hesitate to recommend her to either an absolute beginner [ why not have an advanced technique from the start?] – or anyone who has possibly lapsed into ‘habits’ over the years.
Defiantly valuable life skills gained – and a most enjoyable experience into the bargain.

Angie is an excellent driver and instructor. I asked Angie to coach me towards taking my National Observer qualification with the Institute of Advanced Motorists. She arranged a lesson plan of practical driving and demonstrations which helped me prepare for (and later pass) my test. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of road craft and is a very patient and amicable instructor. I recommend Angie for any form of driving tuition from learner to advanced driving.

Dear Angie
Thank you for the driving instruction you have given me. My driving has improved greatly. I am observing far more and you have managed to iron out my bad habits. Your teaching method is first class.
Kind regards


Driving lessons with Angela were such a pleasure, she was always calm and helpful.  I would always look forward to our lessons as she was always cheerful and helped me progress at a steady pace.
