Howdy! We hope everyone’s hanging on in there. Lockdown is certainly no fun and we’re really missing seeing our learners hit the roads for driving lessons and tests. It’s OK though because we’re all in this together and we will get through it!
As we explained last week, thanks to everything being shut down, we don’t have any hot-off-the-press pass photos. That doesn’t mean, however, that we’re all out of new pass pics to show you. Oh no! In fact, this is a perfect opportunity to shed light on some of those pass stories that didn’t get told at the time because we were off on our hols (read: sat at home with our quarantine buddies—no jetting off to Dubai for us). So, today we’re celebrating a learner who managed to earn her licence just a couple of days before Christmas.
This week’s top pass photo of the week goes to… Sinead from Nottingham!
Sinead’s driving journey started back in 2019. Thanks to a highly demanding job, she had to try to organise driving lessons around her changing shift patterns. This was all well and good until she then had to work everything around the chaos caused by the pandemic too! All of this is to say that, by September 2020, Sinead had a couple of failed tests under her belt and was more determined than ever to earn her licence.
Sinead made two decisions that were key to her success: she switched from a manual to an automatic car and booked PassMeFast’s 10 hour refresher course. She knew she was a good driver—she just needed to polish up her skills to get test-ready!
Sinead took to the roads of Nottingham with instructor Shahid and completed the 10 hour course. Here’s how she described her time with him:
“Really enjoyed being taught by Shahid. He taught me a lot in the short time I was with him which gave me more confidence on the day of my test.”
Speaking of the day of the test, it happened to land just 2 days before Christmas. Would Sinead be able to give herself the ultimate Christmas present?! That would be a resounding yes! Sinead passed her practical test with just 2 minors—a great result. Bravo Sinead! Enjoy the freedom and independence that a driving licence brings.
We hope Sinead’s pass story is a reminder that even though 2020 was a tough year, some people still managed to accomplish great things. Here at PassMeFast, we have no doubt that the same will be true for 2021.
