” Cally ❤️’s drivesafe4lifeacademy
I decided that in this busy city, it was about time I took some driving lessons. Judie and her company came highly recommended for reasons unrelated to driving. She was esteemed for her good nature, patient character, commitment, and drive.
So it began… I booked a pre-lesson session and found all of the above to be true – and after 10 sessions it definitely was true. I don’t think there would have been any other company who sustained my stubborn nature!
I took a break to the point where Judie had to ask where I was – my response was “living life a little, but I’ll call” (it was a year of much travel for me).
When I did resume, drivesafe4lifeacademy were still committed to my outcomes and goal at competitive and reasonable rates.
Judie pushed and encouraged me in aspects of driving I had never considered. She ensured that each lesson was tailor-made specifically for me. My learning environment became more than a driving lesson; I would enjoy these nuggets of life-long skills.
On the day of my test, everything I had learned fell into place perfectly. I passed on my first attempt and I believe I took on some of Judie’s attributes – her calm demeanour and diligence. These (and more) helped me to actually enjoy my “test day drive” and stay focused on driving safe.
I have and will continue to recommend drivesafe4lifeacademy to anyone, and I will continue driving safely by pursuing the pass plus course”
” I really admired Judie for her patience and dedication with me while I was learning to drive. She has never shouted at me (not even once) and is always calm.
I used to practise with another local driving school, whose drivers would always shout and got easily irritated. This made me so nervous before my lessons that sometimes I would come up with any excuse to cancel a lesson.
With Judie, I looked forward to each lesson. She is a professional, constructive with her feedback and easy going. Judie prepared me well to be a driver for life and I passed with only 2 minors. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thanks a lot Judie. You are A**** ”
From Wood Green. February 2017
” I would just like to say, thank you to Judie for helping me pass my practical driving test first time. She always made me feel comfortable while I was learning and never shouted or got annoyed if I was doing anything wrong, instead she would talk to me and tell me where I went wrong and how to improve for the next time. I always looked forward to my lessons because I found them enjoyable due to the manner in which she taught me. The mock tests she had done with me had really helped when it came to my test because they were done under stricter conditions than the actual test so it made the test seem easier and helped with my nerves. I would definitely recommend going with Judie as your driving instructor because she is a great teacher who makes all of the lessons enjoyable and really supports you while you are learning.”
From Tottenham. March 2017
” After very bad experiences (and literally thousands of pounds) with instructors and intensive courses, Judie at Drive safe 4 Life was recommended to me. She has high standards not only in the way she taught but also in small things such as timekeeping and respect for the individual. It was refreshing and I was pleasantly surprised in an industry where so many corners are cut. After only 8 sessions, I managed to pass my test first time with only a few minors. I’m over the moon and looking forward to (and confident) in driving solo. Thanks Judie! ”
From Leyton. April 2017
” I’ll like to say a BIG, Thank u Judie,for your patience with me and for pushing me to the finish line … Thank so much for your expertise.. I passed my driving test with only two minor faults … thank u”
From Barking. April 2017
” It has been a pleasure having Judie as my driving instructor. She is so straight forward and always make the most complex things very simple. It took me 4 tries to pass my test but in the end I did it because I listened to what she said and concentrated. Thank you Judie”
From Leyton. May 2017
” Judie has been an amazing instructor! After having a previous instructor who was unreliable and regularly cancelled on me, Judie was a complete breath of fresh air. Always, reliable, on time and willing to answer any questions I may have even outside my lesson times. As an instructor, she was very patient, firm, fair and always encouraged me to use my initiative and “think safe, drive safe”. This is what i had in the forefront of my mind during my test and I really believe this is what enabled me to pass. Thanks again Judie!”
” Such an amazing journey to take with you Judie,you made me into an independent woman and for that I can’t thank you enough. You always remained positive,blocked out all my negative thoughts and believed in me. I’m so glad I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do my lessons with you after such a struggle. I’d recommend you to anyone and everyone you’re absolutely fantastic at your job. Thank you x “
” First let me shout out a big thank God for you Judie, I must say you are the best!!!!. Thank you for putting up with me – your patience is undeniable, your support and encouragement rewarding.
I know its a paid job but your passion surpasses money, you care for your students I can truly say you are a cut above the rest. Thank you Judie at Drive safe 4 life, I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.See you on the road!”
” Judie’s been a fantastic instructor. I had lessons on and off for three years and as a very anxious person, Judie’s patience and sense of humour ensured I persevered and kept calm throughout.
She was always there with kind, motivational words of encouragement and tailored her instruction to suit me. Judie prepared me not only for my test, but for the real world of driving. I am now a confident driver and this is all thanks to Judie!”
” Firstly, let me start off by saying Judie is an amazing driving instructor and she helped to me pass first time. She is polite and gentle but firm. I would highly recommend her service. She is effective and efficient. When i felt like giving up, she continued to push me!”
“I am glad that Judie paid extra attention to driving safety during the last lessons before my test, it’s literally what helped me pass my test first time. Judie is a passionate and dedicated instructor who actually cares about her students passing “
” First of all, I would like to say a big thank you to Judie. She helped me to pass my driving test on the first attempt. She was very reliable, always on time and very patient. She also helped my sister to passed her driving test first time. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Judie of Drive Safe 4 Life Academy, to anyone who wants to learn to drive”
” On the 12th February 2016 at about 13.30 pm marked the day and time a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders… With the help of Judie (Drive safe 4 life), I finally passed my driving test.
24 whole years later…. I can drive, or should I say I’ve been driving but needed to get my UK licence but got discouraged after a bad driving test experience. When I found Judie online through Theory Test Pro, I knew I had made the right decision choosing her even before meeting her, and now the rest is history. Can’t thank you enough Judie, great instructor, thorough, patient and very experienced, and best of all makes you feel confident. God bless you “
“After failing my driving test three times before, there was one point in my life when I thought I would never gain confidence again in taking another driving test, let alone a driving lesson.
After much convincing from close friends and family I decided to change my driving instructor, start a fresh and gave it ago once again. That’s when I met Judie. After the first lesson, I finally felt that there could be hope in gaining confidence and being in the driving seat of my own learning.
Judie taught me very early on that I am in control and that I am capable of being a safe driver. After several hours, hard work and commitment I booked my final driving test and passed with two faults. Overall, I would like to say a massive thanks to Judie and I am forever grateful!”
“A heavy weight lifted from my shoulders as soon as I passed my Practical driving test.
Thanks be to God and to Judie, who through her patience,kindness and love instructed and guided me to the finish line.
Even when I was trembling with anxiety her calm voice and instructions made driving possible. In a very positive way, I can still hear Judie’s voice in my head saying “have you checked your mirrors, whats happening behind you and around you”. Thank you Judie, you have certainly made a safe driver out of me”
” A big thank you to judie who helped me to pass my driving test first time. She gave me confidence and helped me to believe in myself even when I doubted. She was also very punctual and dependable. I would have no hesitation in recommending judie of drive safe 4 life academy”
” Thanks for making learning how to drive on the other side of the road such a joy. I couldn’t have imagined how different driving in the UK would be from driving on the wide-open roads of North America that I was so used to! You made the hectic and crowded roads of London both fun and bearable, and I learned a whole lot in the process about biting points, zig-zags, zebra crossings and left-reverses-around-the-corner. You’re clearly an excellent teacher – I think my result speaks for itself!”
” Well…. what can I say!…. first of all, I thank God for creating Judie!!! She’s simply a God send!
In the past, I started lessons and stopped repeatedly. The last straw for me was when I had been involved in a second major road accident and totally struck being a driver off of my wish list! Simply because I was so frightened of cars and the road. I now realise that if you have the right instructor, you won’t stop!!! No matter what!!! You’ll keep going!
I really didn’t think that I could do it as I needed to be told a thousand times before something is registered! Yet Judie believed in me and had this amazing level of patience and understanding. …. I just can’t believe that I had achieved this as I didn’t think it was at all possible. Judie encouraged me and didn’t allow me to give up. Words will never be enough to express my level of thanks, gratitude and appreciation.
I’d recommend Judie to every person that wants a license ”
” My experience with Drive Safe 4 Life was something I will definitely remember. It taught me to be confident both behind the wheel and also within myself in life in general. My instructor kept me calm and constantly reassured me even when I was on the brink of giving up! Judie knew exactly what my strong points were and my areas of improvement and helped me develop. The materials that were given to use outside of lessons helped tremendously, especially in the weeks leading up to my test.
Learning with Drive Safe 4 Life was a great experience and I some-what miss doing my lessons.
I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for an instructor who can motivate you, help you develop at your own pace and cater your lessons to suit your needs, to learn with Drive Safe 4 Life!”
Me passing my driving test first time with 4 minor faults would have never been possible without Judie! Shes the most patient woman I’ve ever met. No matter how many times I forgot what she told me literally 2 minutes ago, she would never get angry!
She makes learning so fun and every lesson is well spent, because she’s so thorough, this is what ensures that you learn and trust me she will make sure of it! Judie is more than a driving teacher she’s a friend and I’m happy I met her she is so easy to talk to and laugh with.
She tailors the lessons around you so you can make sure your doing what you want to do, she makes it convenient by picking you up wherever you are which was so useful for my busy lifestyle. Learning to drive with drive safe for life academy was a good decision.
I want to give Judie a BIG thank you for helping me during this process!
You was always encouraging me when I was doubting my self or when I thought I was unable to do something. Whenever I thought that I had a really bad lesson you would tell me all the things that I did well to make me feel better.
Even though I may have put your life in danger a few times while I was driving, you never once shouted at me lol!
But I am very thankful for the lessons that you gave me and also helping me to pass.
Finally!!! After so long learning to drive I managed to pass my test 2nd time round. This would not have been possible if I didn’t have all the help of my amazing driving instructor, Judie teaching me at Drive Safe For Life Academy.
I am so grateful full for all the time and effort she put in to making this happen and would highly recommend her to anybody.
I want to give a massive thank you to the Drive Safe 4 Life Academy and my instructor Judie Regis.
Judie was confident in me when I wasn’t in myself and was very patient and committed to ensuring I didn’t just pass my test, but also become a safe driver for the rest of my life. Judie was very persistent in perfecting me before my test which I ended up passing with only 1 minor fault and I cannot thank Judie enough.
Judie is always on time, ready to pick up from where you last left off without any delay and is always friendly no matter what time of day. I now have the techniques, skill and knowledge to drive on my own, but when I’m out driving alone, Judie is always in the back of your mind reminding you of the safest possible option. You are supplied with a wide amount of resources from Judie and any queries you may have, you can ask without any hesitation.
I passed my test but I am looking to better myself through other driving qualifications with Drive Safe 4 Life and Judie, as I am sad my driving lessons have come to an end, but pleased to have passed my test. Thank you Judie !
BIG THANK YOU to Judie, for not only believing in me,but encouraging,supporting and just being a beautiful person.
Her professional knowledge of driving, patient approach and reassurance not only helped to calm down my nerves,but brought my confidence back after I failed driving test with my previous instructor.
I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Judie. Xxx
Drive Safe 4 Life Academy has been one of the greatest decisions of my life. I was recommended to Judie by a friend of mine, a previous student, and God bless him for the recommendation.
Judie and her driving academy gave me everything I needed and put in place all the extra help for assistance such as driving videos to help you pass your test first time.
I would like to thank Judie and Drive Safe 4 Life Academy from the bottom of my heart for everything they’ve done for me, especially helping me turn my green card, pink!
” The Drive safe 4 life academy is a great place to learn.
I gained a great understanding of driving and what it takes to be a good driver, allowing me to pass my test first time, with only 7 minor driving faults, as Judie is a great instructor.
Top rating from me! I definitely recommend the Drive Safe 4 Life Academy”
Driving lessons with Judie was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had. Because of her wealth of knowledge and her teaching skills, which are second to none…straight after passing my test I am driving to work independently kitted out with the confidence gifted to me by Judie herself.

Judie was a great teacher. Her knowledge of driving helped me excel and eventually pass my driving test.
I feel confident enough to drive on the roads alone and to drive safely.
Thanks for everything Judie!
Thanks to Judie and her driving academy I passed my driving test first time!
It took me 7 months to learn how to drive and I can’t thank Judie enough for her patience and encouragement throughout my driving journey.
My experience has been an exciting and comprehensive one with added value, for example, Judie encouraged me to be confident and assertive behind the steering wheel. I have no regrets that I picked Judie’s driving academy as she isn’t just a driving instructor, she is also a motivator.
When I first started to take my lessons I was very nervous and anxious about how I would be behind the steering wheel but from the very first induction lesson Judie ensured me that I was going to be safe and that I had nothing to worry about. After my first lesson I was excited about the challenges I would face, especially learning how to turn right at a junction (boy oh boy how I conquered that fear by the grace of God).
So if you looking for a driving instructor who is motivational and caring then look no further, you’ve found what you’re looking for – at Drive Safe 4 Life Academy.
Drive Safe 4 Life Academy has given me all the skills needed to be a safe driver. With one of the best driving instructors that I could have wished for.
Judie made learning fun and gave me clear instructions which allowed me to pass my practical test first time. I would recommend Drive safe 4 Life to all my friends.
I started learning to drive in September 2013 and 10 months on I now hold a full UK driving licence. On top of this I qualified for my BTEC level 1 in safe road skills and attitudes, all with the help of Drive Safe 4 Life Academy.
When I took my first lesson I was really nervous but excited to embark on this challenge to become a safe, competent and confident driver. With the help of my instructor Judie, I learnt how to read the road and approach situations in a safe manner.
I am now going to begin the pass plus scheme and the BTEC level 2 in Demonstrate safe driving so I can widen my experience on different roads.
I just passed my test thanks to Drive Safe 4 Life. I can’t thank Judie enough for helping me do this because without her commitment and guidance I would never have gotten here.I’ve got to be honest, in the beginning I was lazy, I just thought it was about getting in the car and going. But it’s not, as Judie will tell you. It’s about being safe, thinking about more than just how high your foot is off the clutch and taking time to think about hazards and how you plan to respond to them.Thankfully Judie was patient and it sank in. All of the skills Judie taught me are essential to not only passing your test (because believe me, you will not pass until you can demonstrate you have them) but to be able to successfully negotiate the roads when you do!
I would like to thank Judie not only for providing me with the skills and knowledge to pass my test, but also for the advice she gave which will not only help me in driving but in life. Judie is an exceptional person, she showed so much patience and support during my journey.
I had a previous instructor from a well known company, paid twice the money and I did not receive the high standard of support, advice, and teaching that Judie provided.
She is calm and gives open and honest advice and encouragement. I would definitely recommend Judie to anyone looking for an instructor.
I can not thank Judie enough and I will honestly miss her not only as an instructor but as a person. Thank you Judie
Judie is an excellent and highly professional Instructor. She was very supportive, patient and encouraging throughout the lessons, even through it took some time for me to fully grasp some of the driving techniques.
I would definitely recommend to anyone loking for an instructor who can deliver the desired results.
I passed my test first time!.
I would like to give a massive thank you to my instructor, Judie, who helped me go from zero driving experience to a qualified driver in very effective way and in my own leisure time. She always remained calm and patient, which gave me a great confidence when I was behind the wheel. There were never any moments of confusion thanks to the great advice given by Judie as well as helpful reviews after each lesson when I would have to grade myself. I always knew where I stand and she was very open and fair when grading me and advising where I have to improve.
I would easily recommend Drive Safe for Life Academy to anyone learning to drive as you will get best service and knowledge as I did.Will miss her hugely now that I’ve passed. 🙂
My first driving instructor had little patience and a short temper. My second instructor never gave me feedback or encouraged me. My third instructor was Judie! She had all the qualities my first and second instructor lacked. She was honest, encouraging and patient. Judie gave me the ability to think as a “driver”. She would prompt me when needed but would also give me the opportunity to think independently.
The best thing about Judie’s lessons is that she will always ask you what you want to do at the start of the lesson. This really helped increase my confidence as it empowered me to make decisions and choices. My answer would always be “Roundabouts!”. At the end of the lesson Judie would encourage me to reflect on the lesson. What went well? What could I do better next time?
Judie was so supportive throughout all the lessons but particularly to the run up of my test. She gave me lots of written information and answered all my questions with great detail. Although I was nervous the morning of my test I felt 100%prepared. I passed my test first time with three minors.
I would highly recommend Judie to anyone looking for a driving instructor.
My experience of driving with Judie was amazing. I cannot thank her enough for making learning to drive such an amazing experience. Judie always made sure that good service was delivered to a high standard and was thorough when teaching me how to drive. I started out with no confidence and by the end Judie taught me how to be very confident on the roads, which I am grateful for.
I passed my test first time which shows how great she is. I also completed my pass plus and the BTEC certificate course which was very beneficial for cheaper car insurance. I would recommend anyone to Judie school of motoring.
“Thank you so much Judie xxx”
