"Would like to say a massive thank you to Lynda for being an amazing instructor. Having been on my learners for over a year and failed the test a few times, I had lost confidence that I ever would. I decided to look into lessons and within just a few weeks of her excellent instruction I was ready to sit the test which I passed first time. I truly appreciated her calm, friendly and patient approach which helped to settle my nerves and give me the confidence I needed. Not only does her expertise and knowledge shine, she offers many practical and easily followed tips and tricks for handling difficult situations and creating good driving habits. For someone that has trouble with nerves and anxiety she was a godsend. Will definitely be returning for my full license :)"

"I can’t thank Lynda enough for the amazing person she is and the driving skills she has taught me. I passed my restricted today! I highly recommend immense Lynda :)
I had Lynda 5 years ago teaching me and then I gave up my lessons due to having a busy life. A couple of months ago, I was ready to do lessons again and even though I live in central Auckland, I made sure I met with her out in new Lynn just so I could have her teach me again.
Thank you Lynda:)"

"Thank you to A1 particularly Ms Lynda. She helped me a lot in refreshing the three point turn, reverse parallel parking, and changing lanes on motorway and busy street. I nailed the exam! Yehey! By the way, she was also a great instructor for my son. Further, A1 has helped our family a lot in gaining confidence on the road, learning effective defensive driving, and always being safe on the road. Thank you very much to A1!"

"I just wanted to thank you very very much for the wonderful help that Lynda has patiently extended to my daughter and to my son's driving. They were both unsure of themselves at first, but their lessons with Lynda have surely helped both of them to pass their restricted license test today. It was a huge lift. I surely recommend A1 driving school."

"Lynda got me through my Restricted, and then my Full licence a decade later with last minute bookings before an international flight. Very accommodating, great tricks to help you remember the road rules and how to parallel park, and always has a laugh that puts you at ease. Highly recommended. Thank you!"

"Dear Harald

I would just like to say how wonderful I think Lynda is.  My son Daniel passed his Restricted yesterday in that awful weather.  I haven’t driven with Daniel for a long time and he drove us from Mt Albert to North Shore on Sunday and I knew then that he would pass – despite the storm!  The credit can be solely attributed to Lynda and the confidence she engendered in Daniel and, of course, in Daniel’s response to that.    I recommend Lynda to absolutely everyone...  It has been worth every penny spent to see him drive so well and confidently and we will return to Lynda for final/top-up instruction before Daniel sits his full licence.


Dan’s Mum"

"Both my 18 year old twin sons have taken their lessons with Lynda. She has already gotten one through to full licence and is currently taking my other son through training towards a restricted licence. Lynda is warm, friendly, encouraging and a great tutor. I am very pleased with the service Lynda offers and would highly recommend her to anyone, particularly if you have had a bad experience elsewhere – she is very good at re-building confidence! We will continue with Lynda to a complete licence. Rose"

"Thank you for the email and I would like to inform you that I did had my lesson with Lynda today and one word for her, AMAZING!!!!!!! the best $65 I ever spent. Your company was the only one that actually promptly contacted me and helped me.
I had taken couple of lessons from AA instructor whom I shall not name,however, it kind of scared me because apparently I am not good but I didn't know at what. I mentioned this to Lynda before we started and she immediately put me at ease and explained herself in such a calm manner even my mom is not that calm and that's saying a lot. She basically took me through point by point and encouraged me as well. My concern was Parallel parking but she gave me amazing technique and I practised using that trick and I think I really like parallel parking and this is from someone who failed her first test because I couldn't even reverse my car to park.
Lynda is just plain amazing and honestly I learned so much more in that one hour than I have in the past few months. Had my friend told me about you guys sooner I would have benefited long time ago but better late than never.
Keep up the great work,

"I would like to give a big thanks to Lynda who gave my daughter a driving lesson this morning. She is very informative and was able to pass this on in a calm, friendly manner, helping her to adjust where necessary. Great pointers for parallel parking. Would highly recommend A+.
Many thanks Lucy"
