Because Monika is an outstanding instructor and a highly professional individual, I passed my first time with her. Monika was a very patient teacher and the lessons are always enjoyable. She is an extremely hilarious teacher, therefore her lessons are never boring. She gave me the courage to drive and taught me all the skills I needed to become a safe driver. Her classes were really organised and informative, and I really appreciated your support.

Amazing instructor and I was very lucky to find her. I previously struggled with high anxiety around driving and had to stop lessons with a previous instructor due to it. So not only did she have to tackle my anxiety but Monika had to undo the work of previous poor instructor I had. She is very different to any other instructor, she is very patient and professional and she helped me to pass at my first attempt. Cannot thank her enough. I could not have done it without her. Would recommend to anyone looking for lessons!

I had a really positive experience with Monika. Initially I was unsure about manual and could not to practice outside of lessons however none of these mattered in the face of her excellent coaching. She also addressed any anxiety I had related to driving, making a huge difference which I found was unique to her as an instructor.

I fully recommend Monika as a driver instructor. After driving for 20+ years in a different country, failing the driving test in the UK was an unpleasant experience, which created some negativity and frustration. Monika was very patient, positive and professional, leading my preparation towards a successful test.

Em portugues para os brasileiros que tenham interesse em aprender a dirigir na Inglaterra. Conheci Monika quando estava procurando uma instrutora em Belvedere e posso dizer que ela é demais! Eu já dirigia no Brasil por aproximados 25 anos e derrepente me vi aqui na Inglaterra dirigindo de um lado diferente, achei que nunca conseguiria entender as regras, até encontrar ela! Obrigada pela experiencia maravilhosa Monika. Super recomendo!

I just wanted to say thank you so much to Monika for helping me to pass first time with only 2 minors. I wasn't sure whether I could do it as I didn't have much confidence but through the TFT method and Monika's own unwavering confidence in my abilities I did it. The lessons not only improved my driving but also my self-assurance and eased my anxieties in all areas of my life. If you want to learn how to be an assertive driver in a relaxed and positive environment then I can't recommend Monika enough!

Was looking for an instructor for my daughter and struck gold when we found Monika. She became a real mentor for Hermione not just in her driving but in all areas in her life. Hermione is now so much more relaxed and confident in herself and looking forward to the new chapter in her life. Many thanks Monika you are a star ⭐️

Monika is a fantastic instructor, I stumbled upon her website when I was specifically looking for someone who could deal with anxious and worried drivers. As soon as we began driving, she taught me how to feel at ease in the car, and for that I am really thankful! I had 2 other instructors before her which were not the right fit, and I believe this knocked my confidence. But driving and learning with Monika was a whole other (positive) experience. I passed first time with 0 faults (hooray!) something I could only dream of a year ago. If you're looking for a considerate, caring and knowledgeable teacher who not only teaches you to drive, but gets you confident in your own abilities then you have come to the right place!

I would like to share my great experience of learning to drive under Monika's wings. She is a very experience,patience and amazing instructor. When I started my lessons with Monika it was my first time behind the wheels and she not only helped me to pass my driving test but also made me such a confident driver. So still after more then 8 years I am appreciated her influence and would recommended her to anyone!

If you really want to pass and learn how to drive safely then learn with Monica, she has such pride and passion in teaching her students. Monica really pushes you to achieve, even when you want to give up she will make sure you complete your goal. She has a genuine wish to see her pupils pass by knowing the correct and safe procedures. I learnt with another instructor before and the manner and method used really knocked my confidence. Monica helped me by showing me how to learn the correct driving procedures and explained everything. It took me a long time but with Monica’s expertise I got there, which it something I never thought I would do. I am so glad I learnt with Monica. I really was afraid of learning to drive and learning with Monica gave me the confidence to continue.

Passed the First time! Having an Indian driving license has a lot of bad effects, as I had to unlearn a lot of things. When I started to look for instructors, my first priority was someone who I can be comfortable with inside the car, who is patient, pleasant(No Shouting!), to whom I can talk through my fears and learn. And Monika is everything. She is calm, very friendly and highly professional. She trusted me more than I did to myself and before I knew it I was driving well. I was a person who "needed" to drive not "wanted" to drive. Now I can say, "Yes, I want to drive" and its all because of the confidence gained through the lessons. So my suggestion to all those lovely people out there who wants to take lessons from the nicest person, I highly recommend Monika. Thank you so much, Monika, for all the time and patients and TFT method. :) I am going to miss our chats! :)

As a 17 year old I was looking for someone to teach me to drive safely. Monika was recommended to me by a friend and I later found out that she has taught many other people I know. The lessons were very fun and after each one I felt that I had made progress. Monika is a wonderful and calm teacher who helped me to improve by asking me consider how the drive went and what I could have done differently. After moments where I was stressed while driving she calmed me down and kept me level headed. I passed first time and could not be happier with how prepared I felt to drive in real life. Thank you very much Monika for all your help.

Myself and my sister both took lessons from Monika after being recommended by a friend. She is a great instructor with an excellent style of teaching which is both effective and enjoyable. We not only both passed our tests first time, but our lessons with Monika have enabled us to be confident drivers. We highly recommend Monika to anyone looking for an instructor.

“I know when I see Monika’s name on the test sheet the learner will be great” that’s a direct quote from my Driving Test Examiner, who just passed me (thanks to Monika)!! Brilliant. From start to finish Monika has been the best instructor and teacher I’ve met. She seems to care more about her learners than others. If you want to learn to drive pick Monika. She won’t just teach you to ‘pass’, she’ll make sure you are a confident driver, and give you advice on motoring, insurance, mechanics the works... Thanks Monika!

I called my friend stating that I have to pass my driving test as it was about time I did. He recommended Monika. Monika is very thorough at what she does, and very articulate. My lessons with her were always at ease. I passed my test on the 30th of June. I would recommend this woman if you are serious about wanting to pass and also being a safe driver.

From:  Wanjia

Date:  Sunday 14th May 2017

Despite passing my driving test on my first attempt, I was very scared to drive. After four years of having a full license and almost zero time spent on the road, I decided to do something about the situation. And I was very lucky to have Monika on my refresher lessons. She established quite quickly that I wasn't having phobias or anxieties. My unwillingness to drive was because I wasn't taught properly last time round. I had to admit that I was very lucky to pass for the first time, that I didn't fully understand a lot of things but were just memorizing and doing as told, and that I wasn't given enough time on high speed (50 mph +) that I never felt comfortable at that kind of speed at all. The resolution was quite simple, but practical - go back to the basics. She was very patient with me as I spent quite sometime to revisit what was taught four years ago. She gave me real time feedback, took the time to listen to me and went in great level of details to explain things that confused me. She was also very nice to me, that I never felt bullied when I made silly mistakes, which was what happen to me last time. She told me why I made the mistakes, and asked me to look forward, which was extremely helpful. Within three months time, I learnt a great deal from her. I was able to go on long journey by myself across the country. I was able to drive, properly, with confidence. And this would not happen without Monika.

Monika was a great teacher! She stays calm, communicates clearly, provides constructive feedback without making you feel ashamed or stupid, and is very flexible in terms of scheduling. I am licensed driver in the US and I really appreciated that Monika was respectful of my experience while helping me to meet the UK standard. Despite my anxieties about the test, Monika prepared me well and I passed on the first go!

Monika was recommended to me by a friend and after hearing the good things he had to say about her, I immediately cancelled the lessons I had booked with another driving school. And I have to say it was one of the best decisions that I had ever made. I want to say a big thank you to Monika for her excellent tuition that enabled me to pass my test 11 years after my last test and no driving at all in that time. She is so calm, patient in her explanation and showed so much faith in me, which in turn enabled me to believe in myself. My only regret is that I did not go to Monika sooner. Thank you Monika!

Monika was recommended to me by a friend (who couldn't talk highly enough about her) I had previously had lessons with 1st time and let me say categorically, what Monika does for you, as a driver, is nothing short of amazing. She's more that a driving instructor that teaches you out the book. She helps you develop your thinking and your driving IQ by her questioning and just the manner she approaches things. I would highly highly recommended Monika to anyone and will definitly miss the times and stories we shared. All that's left to say is a huge thank you. I appreciate everything you've done for me and am eternally grateful.

It has taken me ages to write this but finally got round to it. Monika is my first and only driving instructor and I am so happy I found her. With my lack of confidence I could have easily been put off driving, had I chosen a wrong type of instructor. She is amazing at her job and such a good teacher. I was a total novice when I started and had never sat behind the wheel, never mind started a car! The lessons were a pleasure and it felt like meeting up with a good friend. I appreciated Monika's honesty as she will advise you once she thinks you are ready for the test. With her help and guidance I passed my test first time with one minor fault!!! Amazing lady and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to drive with a lovely instructor xx

I've got to say I wasn't someone who picked up driving easily not being a practical person, but after doing several lessons a year ago and failing my test I went to Monika after she was highly recommended to me. One of the best decisions I made- at first I was I was hesitant because Monika isn't the cheapest out there- but you seriously get what you pay for. I really enjoyed my lessons, Monika helps you to keep calm, whilst at the same time pushing you to make progress every lesson- I learnt something every time and felt great that I had progressed after each lesson. Monika also tailors her teaching style to you- I found it so useful to do the mock test several times as it was something I was very nervous about. Monika took the mock seriously replicating the exam coditions, after she have detailed feedback and then we drove over the parts of the test I found difficult again. Monika teaches you to drive for life and not just to pass the test- I passed my test with only 3 driver faults and feel that I am a good driver. I also did my Pass Plus with Monika which was well worth the money to learn more about driving on motorways/country lanes and difficult driving conditions- so much that I was confident to do a journey to rural South Wales on my own after only 4 months of passing my test! Monika is a very special and talented lady, she is very passionate about her job and goes above and beyond what she has to do- even accompanying me to make my first car purchase! Monika is also caring, and I really miss her company and positive energy. Can't recommend Monika enough- I promise you won't regret booking with Monika!

I thank God for helping me find Monika. She is the absolute best driving instructor EVER! I only wish I had found her years ago. I was able to pass my driving test today with only 2 driver faults because of her (thank you for the therapy and calming down my nerves!). Even though I was with her for a short while, I learnt something new every lesson. I don't just know how to drive, I now also understand how to drive. Monika is very passionate about teaching you to drive and she always wants you to do well and be your best. If you make mistakes, she will tell you what you have done wrong and explain how to do things the right way. She is very calm and patient with you, she's super friendly and so easy to talk to and I noticed this about her from the very first day I met her. My advice to all new learners is save your money and time and just go with Monika. You will learn how to drive properly and also have a lot of fun at the same time. Thank you sooooooo much Monika! :)

Monika is the best!!! I had 2 driving instructors and when i came to Monika I realised that all the money I have spent before was put down the drain! She is the best instructor you can ever find! At first i was shocked about so many good reviews and I haven't believed them, BUT when i had the first lesson with Monika I realised :) You will be a good safe driver with her, the best thing you can do is invest in yourself and do that with Monika!! I had about 40 hours of driving before I came to Monika, and believe me , I was learning from scratch with her!! I was not confident before, but now I am! And I also think she needs to charge MUCH MORE for what she does :))) She puts everything in you , and she believes in you and she also lets you correct your own mistakes! Really just take your phone and call her and book a lesson!! (you have to book WELL in advance as everyone wants her!!!))) She is also a great person and I had so much fun with her! (WHERE IS THE FUNERAL? why are you driving so slow? ))))) Thank you Monika for your hard work and see you on Pass Plus!)))))))))

PASSED 1ST TIME!!! Having reached my thirties, I decided to increase my personal freedom and job opportunities by learning to drive. Having never driven before I resolved not to follow my usual instincts, and find the cheapest option, but to find the best instructor that I could. I contacted to help find a suitable instructor, they advised that I give Monika a call. A little more expensive than some instructors, and based quite a distance from where I live, I think it was the best decision I have made in quite some time. Exceptionally friendly and professional, I truly believe that Monika would be a huge asset to anyone learning to drive, whatever their personality type or previous driving experience. I can not recommend her highly enough. Thank you Monika.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Monika for her help in getting me to pass first time! When I arrived first, my confidence was probably at the lowest that it had been in the year or so that I had been driving. After one lesson with Monika, it had surged and I felt so much more optimistic about my driving ability. I came on leaps and bounds with Monika, her optimism and ability to help me in a constructive way while continuing to build my confidence- and hence driving skills- meant that I passed my test first time in a period of time I wouldn't have felt was possible before. As well as this, I actually learned to enjoy my driving lessons- Monika is so friendly and conversational, which has a way of putting you at ease. Collectively, this means that my entire outlook on driving and on my driving ability has transformed. I am in a position now with my driving that I doubt I would have been in for a very long time, if not ever, had I not been instructed by Monika.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to my instructor Monika of 1st London Driving Academy for helping me pass my driving test first time. As a foreign national living in the UK, when I first started learning to drive, I was extremely nervous in my ability. I was very lucky to have Monika as my driving instructor, who had been highly recommended by friends. I thoroughly enjoyed driving with her. She was very supportive, encouraging, understanding, warm, friendly, calm, patient, professional and helped me with every aspect of learning. She always gave consistent feedback and progress reports at the end of every lesson so I knew exactly how I was progressing. She was always punctual and flexible with lesson times to accommodate my needs. Above all, she had a great sense of humor. A huge thank you to Monika for all her time and patience

As I promised I would like to sing the praises to Monika’s talents. Initially I decided that choice of instructor is more important rather than choice of school. And I must say it was right decision. It is said on the web-page that Monika is highly skilled coach and that’s absolute true! I am very demanding person and I could appreciate her competence. She can deal with any kind of people and talk to them and teach them on their level of understanding. It might be housewife or engineer, beginner or experienced driver – Monika will find her way to “bring the truth” and share her skills and experience. What I liked best of all – it never was too easy or too stressful. She could sense when it is getting easier for you and she immediately goes to the next level. Believe me, not every person is so sensitive. First time in my life I was enjoying driving (I was driving a few years before with auto gear) – thank you Monika! That was amazing experience! And she is really-really nice person!!! Highly recommended!

When I was looking for a driving instructor a few years ago, I was originally going to go with Monika, but her prices were just a bit of out my budget, so I went with a cheaper instructor. This is a lesson I will definitely remember as this proved to me that you definitely get what you pay for! With Monika I received quality, patient and friendly tuition whereas the cheaper instructor was much less patient and the teaching style did not suit me. The other instructor tried to cover the more advanced aspects of driving (e.g. A roads) before I had even mastered the basics which just put me on edge and made me dislike driving. I ended up taking a year’s break from driving lessons and at that point I decided I would try a different instructor which is when I contacted Monika. I learnt more from Monika in about 2 hours of lessons than I did after 20 hours with the other instructor! I’m sure I would have saved a lot of money if I had just gone with Monika in the first place! Monika also taught me how to do TFT and it really helped me to combat initial nerves when driving. Originally I thought I had a fear of driving but Monika helped me realise it was more a lack of knowledge than anything else! I did have some nerves at the start of my lessons and TFT helped me overcome that. I also did TFT before my driving test which I took one day before my theory test expired (no pressure!) and passed 1st time with 3 minors, this was no doubt because of the quality tuition I received from Monika and endless hours of private practice! I felt so nervous before I went for my warm up session before the practical test but after doing TFT I was filled with positivity and couldn’t believe how relaxed I was during my test! I have also used TFT in others areas of life, once before a big presentation as I was nervous about speaking in front of a lot of people. It went so well that one of the directors of the company I was presenting to said it was one of the most effective presentations they have seen and that I looked very confident and relaxed. Again, after TFT my nerves just seemed to disappear. I would recommend TFT and Monika to anyone! Thank you for everything Monika and so sorry it has taken so long to write about my driving experience! It’s such a relief to have passed my test and I still imagine you clicking your fingers at the mirrors so I don’t forget to check them! :)

Monika is a wonderful driving instructor! I am not a natural driver, but she was always patient and took the time to explain anything that I didn't understand. She made me feel relaxed and confident, and now for the first time in my life I actually enjoy driving. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

From:  Jack G

Date:  Sunday 8th June 2014

Monika is an outstanding driving instructor, her knowledge and understanding of the road is second to none. She has a fantastic way of explaining things and is able to break things down in a manageable and achievable way. After initially learning to drive with a number of instructors when I was 17 I took a very long break from learning. Monika was able to understand how to get the most from each session and her coaching method allowed you both to guide your learning. When I took my first test at the age of 17 (with a different instructor) I was so nervous that I could barely press the pedals. However, when I took the test with Monika I felt confident and ready and passed first time! She may cost slightly more than some of the other instructors but I can tell you that it is worth it, I travelled across London for each session as the level of instruction and confidence training is amazing (and you will certainly save money in the long run)! I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm very thankful to great teacher and lovely person Monika! I came to her with experience of driving on Russian roads, with need to pass the UK driving test and get used to right handed car / left handed roads and traffic specialty. We've manage to do so in 1,5 month, having 20 hours in total. However Monika also taught me how to drive a car more efficiently and worked hard against my bad habits of driving, which i got due to lack of knowledge previously. She is amazing teacher, explaining everything the way everyone would understand and with great amount of patience and belief in her students!!! The one who is really love, passionate about and enjoying her job! She also explained me how to use TFT method, which I did the night before the test and surprisingly I did sleep very well and have been more on the positive side rather than worried and stressful. All in all I had wonderful experience driving with thoughtful and charismatic instructor Monika ))) Lots of fun, discussions and practice! The whole journey was a great pleasure for me! Thank you very very much dear Monika !!!!

Monika Monika Monika! Clever woman! I passed my driving test after having lessons with Monika. She was great the whole way through. She taught me not only to get through a test but also to become a safe, independent driver. Great communication and support, very patient and really knew the main areas I needed to work on to be test ready. Best spent money in a long time! ;) I miss our chats .. :)

I started lessons with Monika in Spring 2013 aged 35 after being put off for 18 years following a horrible driving course at 17 with an instructor who made me like I was useless and would never be able to drive. After the first lesson with Monika I felt completely at ease and started to think that I may be able to learn to drive after all! Monika is the perfect driving instructor, calm and encouraging and obviously extremely skilled, she explains exactly why mistakes are happening and what is going on with the car at those times which means you understand what is going wrong to correct it. Having spent all those years believing I was incapable of learning to drive, after half a year learning with Monika I felt confident, relaxed and most importantly completely in control and safe when driving. I passed my test first time with only one minor fault and this is all thanks to Monika and her expert tuition. I bought a car a few weeks later and now driving is second nature to me, though I still hear Monika\'s voice in my head if I encounter a tricky situation, the good practice she teaches you really sticks! I would recommend Monika to anyone, not only is she the best instructor you can get she is an amazing person making the lessons so enjoyable. I actually miss my lessons with her!

I just wanted to quickly thank Monika for her hard work she put in to my driving lessons and due to that I passed my driving test today. She is top notch, the minute I got hold of her she was a well of knowledge and taught me a lot about driving. She broke driving down to its simplistic level and I was able to grasp it all with different levels. She's also funny and easy to talk to.....Be aware she can talk as well...but this could be her secret to get you to focus on the road instead of chit-chatting. It's been a great journey with monika and it's not the end of it I will do some pass plus lessons with her and any other excuse to drive her around lol. Do yourself a favour and get some monika in your life you won't regret it. From the faithful student Ade.

Well, let’s face it… I was not a person with a driving x factor for sure!!! Before I started driving lessons I was slightly nervous as I never had any experience with cars, my knowledge of driving was very limited. Somehow, when I was behind the wheel my IQ was drastically going down… I had a lot of ‘blonde moments’!!! I will keep details for myself. Believe me, nothing to be proud of ;-) And then… Monika took matters into her own hands. She was calm throughout every lesson, extremely patient and supportive. When I made some mistake, she always gave me reassurance. She told me to focus on the positives and to be proud of the progress I had made. ‘Just Be THE Best YOU Can Be’. So I tried very hard and… hour after hour, month after month… I have become a confident and competent driver. I passed my test first time with 6 minors!!! I am still in shock!!! If Monika managed to teach me how to drive, she can teach anyone. She is THE BEST and ONLY ONE. Unique in every way. As a driving instructor and as a person. Genuinely inspiring, witty and warm-hearted. I do miss our lessons!!! After all the conversations we had about books, people, tft and about life in general, I can say that Monika showed me not only how to drive, but also how to fly!!! Monika, thanks a million!!!

Monika came highly recommended, as she taught my wife how to drive in 2007. My wife therein passed her practical test first attempt. I am happy to say that Monika turned out to be far above the hype my wife gave her. I taught myself how to drive in Nigeria and have been driving since 2002. I thus had a lot of bad habits, total naivety of traffic signs, coupled with the fact that I had been driving a left hand drive vehicle all this while. I had 20hrs of driving lessons with Monika, and I really learnt a lot from her, especially about correcting my bad driving habits. Beyond driving, she really taught me a lot about life & I am indebted to her for also teaching me Thought Field Therapy (TFT). Using it severally during the course of my lessons and especially before my test really made a lot of difference. I believe I can only get better as a person. I am happy to say that though I did not do as well as my wife on the practical test (LOL), I still passed on my 1st attempt (27 June 2013), despite years of bad driving methods and driving in a different traffic system. I wish Monika the very best in her future endeavors and would definitely highly recommend her to everyone possible. Best Wishes Monika

Before meeting Monika i had had three previous driving instructors and had done 2 failed practical tests. Meeting Monika was the best thing that happened to me. i was nervous about roundabouts and just the practical test in general. but working with Monika she calmed my nerves by doing tft and now i love roundabouts. i passed after about three months with being with her with 3 minors. Monika is just the best i wish i had known about her first i would have spent less money. thank you so much Monika your amazing see you soon for my pass plus.

Before I met Monika I took a lot of lessons with another instructor but in time I saw he didn't teach me any skills. I just lost my time with him. Than I met Monika. Since I had my first lesson with her I knew I want to stay with her. She helped me to understand what I should to do on the road. Whatever she said or showed me was so simple and easy. Monika challenged me not only in my driving but in my learning techniques. I learned so much, more than I even imagined. Something what was impossible for me she made possible. She help me to become a safe driver. I am very glad that I met you, Monika. You have a fantastic ability to teach. You are amazing woman, brilliant, incredibly professional instructor and very friendly person. Your knowledge and experience helped me to finish my driving licence. I enjoyed every minute of my lessons with you. The best instructor I have ever had. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to take driving lessons. Thank you for everything what you've done for me. I miss you already.

Monika, I can't believe when we first met I had a fear of anything resembling a roundabout and truly thought I'd never conquer parrallel parking. Well, there's no stopping me now! You gave me the confidence and skills to attempt the biggest roundabouts without my blood pressure rocketing and now I think I could even parallel park in my sleep it's so easy! Thank you for being so patient and encouraging me to believe in myself. You made each and every lesson so enjoyable with your wicked and relaxed sense of humour. I'm really going to miss them now that I passed - FIRST TIME !!!! Seriously, if you are looking for an instructor who's professional, motivating and someone who empowers you to conquer your fears of driving and be the best you can, then look no further, Monika is the instructor for you!

A year ago if someone would have said to me I'd be happily driving round in my own little car I'd have laughed but I am! I first came across Monika when I googled intensive driving lessons, after pretty much giving up with my previous instructor. I did an assessment with her and was horrified to learn I'd need at least 25 more hours of driving lessons before I had any hope of taking a test but I loved her honesty so booked up the lessons and test straight away. I was 34 when I started taking lessons after a traumatising experience behind the wheel at 17 and even after over 65 hours of lessons had never driven above 30mph and had a very poor grasp on the basics with a previous instructor. Monika taught me clutch control and with the help of TFT and endless patience turned me from a nervous shaking wreck into a person who now loves driving and passed my test first time on the original test date. 3 weeks on I'm still in shock, loving every minute of driving and looking forward to when it snows and I get to take snow lessons with Monika! Monika you have achieved the impossible and am so happy you have been awarded a six for your teaching. You deserve it! Thanks for giving me my freedom.

Nauka z Moniką to czysta przyjemność!!! Dzisiaj zdałem egzamin za pierwszym podejściem (!!!) i...żałuję trochę, bo już nie będę miał przyjemności obcowania z tak wspaniałą osobowością, jaką jest Monika. Masz problem z nauczeniem się jazdy samochodem? Monika Cię wyleczy z kompleksów i nauczy bezpiecznie poruszać się po wąskich ulicach nie wspomnę o rondach, które będą mi się śnić przez kolejne lata ;) Monika jesteś wielka!!!!

When I met Monika at a TFT BTFTA Conference event last year, I had no idea how pivotal she would be for me. I hadn't driven any distance for years and my map was getting smaller. I had stopped trying to drive on fast roads as I had panic attacks so violent I couldn't keep my feet on the pedals let alone hold the wheel. This, bearing in mind I'm a TFT practitioner myself, and have been to Harley Street to get over with. The calm safe repartition of driving on faster roads after a TFT session worked and after 2 days and 6 hours in total, I was able to drive home on the M25 without a worry, something I have not done for over 20 years.  I have my freedom again.  Thank you.

MONIKA!!!!!!!!!!!!! We did it, yippeeeee 1st time pass with 1st London Driving Academy. Funniest part of driving lessons/experience with Monika was when I got the news that I had passed my test and I tried to hug the assessor, she almost passed out. Monika, I want to give you a huge thumbs up for making this a reality for me. I am so glad I acted on my instincts and gave you a call. You're like a great handbag, worth the waiting time to get it. I had to wait 2 months before we could start, but it was so worth the wait. Thanks so very much and I wish you many more years of success driving tutorship, setting up the new business and more great trips on your bike. Be safe and keep safe.

Monika was brilliant in every aspect: professional in her thorough approach to teaching me how to drive safely and confidently, supportive in how she helped me handle my nerves about the test and patient whenever I stalled the car for the so-manieth time and was ready to give up. Compared to the instructors I had before, she was the one who actually made it enjoyable again for me to learn how to drive, and because of her support I regained my confidence and rapidly improved my skills. She taught me how to park in one lesson! I cannot recommend her highly enough, especially if like me you are a bit nervous about driving and/or about taking the test. I still cannot believe I actually passed the test!

Professionalism, passion, dedication to work and simple faith in people, that what you will experience on driving lessons with Monika.

Yihaaaa! I passed my test!!! Thank you so much Monika for helping me passes my driving test after two attempts  arghhhhhhhhhh. You were patient, explained things clearly and always positive, which helped me feel confident that I could do it! You always made my lessons fun and enjoyable yet talking me through the need for good perception which has given me more self-confidence to deal with situations as they develop on the road.

I had only one instructor previously from what I believe is the largest driving school in Britain, and that instructor was nowhere near as good as Monika. I really can't praise her enough. She is a fantastic driving teacher, her teaching method is so thorough and concise, you really will remember any hints or tips she's given. I would also recommend anyone to do the Pass Plus with Monika, you'll have a great drive - guaranteed! I'm so happy to have had her as my driving instructor - learning with Monika has truly been a positive experience.

Last summer I had to take some refresher driving lessons. I had a 20 years old licence and never drove in the UK. I wanted a female instructor and luckily found Monika on the Internet. I had a couple of lessons and started driving on a daily basis. I was very scared of driving at the beginning as haven't been driving for a very long time, but with Monika's help I did it! And since then I'm driving every day. My husband has been taking driving lessons during this time, as he had a provisional licence and needed to pass his driving test. He took several lessons with another instructor, but failed the driving test three times. I encouraged him to take lessons from Monika. He passed for the second time as he has overcome his anxiety about the test with Monika's help. Now we both have a UK licence which gives us the freedom and helps our daily life tremendously. Monika is a fantastic person and if you want to become the best driver you can be, look no further! Thank you for everything Monika! Keep in touch and we wish you all the best for the New Year!

Serdeczne podziękowania dla Moniki za to, że dzięki niej zdałam egzamin na prawo jazdy. Jest to osoba bardzo profesjonalna, znająca się na swojej pracy, a jednocześnie pełna pasji i optymizmu. Wracając do domu po każdej lekcji z Moniką, byłam naładowana pozytywnym nastawieniem do życia i wszystko wydawało mi się możliwe do zrobienia (w moim przypadku jest to naprawdę ciężkie gdyż przeważnie wszystko widzę w czarnych barwach). Przed egzaminem wystarczyło tylko 10 minut jazdy z nią i przestałam się stresować. Miałam świadomość, że potrafię prowadzić samochód, wszystko będzie dobrze i zdam ten test. Tak też się stało... i to za pierwszym razem... Serdeczne pozdrowienia i gorące podziękowania dla Ciebie:)

I have passed my test in December last year, hurray, thanks to my Monika. Monika is an amazing instructor and friend, so supportive, very patient, always with lovely smile on her face. Every time she made me feel so relaxed and made me love the driving and made the driving so easy.

After a bad experience when I was 17 with a male instructor, 15 years later I managed to pluck up the courage to attempt driving lessons again with a female instructor, so I contacted the AA and booked a lesson only to be contacted via text message by them to cancel the appointment and move it to a completely unsuitable time so I asked for a refund and discovered Monika. After the first lesson I knew I had made the right choice. The lessons I received not only taught me how to drive but gave me life skills too and I passed my test on Monday 24th May... thanks to Monika and her TFT. Her guidance gave me the confidence not only to pass my test but also to raise my self esteem. Now I'm looking to the future positively. I will miss Monika as my driving instructor but look forward to seeing her as a friend / mentor. This wonderful lady has many amazing genuine talents. Thanks Monika you are a star!!!

Monika is a fantastic driving instructor, thanks to her great attitude and skills in teaching I have managed to pass my driving test at the firts try. She is increadibly patient and her way of explaining of all tricky manouvers make learning quick and easy. Monika gave me more confidence in driving and tought me how to manage stress during the exam, without her help I wouldn't be able to get such a good result.

Hi Everybody, Once upon a time there was a girl who was only 17 and really wanted to become a driver. Unfortunatelly being young and naive she ended up finding the \'WRONG\' instructor who desroyed her confidence and faith... She decided that she will never get into a car again. Eleven years later she found Monika and that's how her \'driving adventure\' begins:))) Monika gave her everything that a person who is anxious about driving needs: support, empathy, confidence and fun. She also showed her that nobody is perfect and it's OK to make mistakes. This is me, a girl who was never going to drive again... On the 19th of May I've passed my driving test thanks to Monika:))) My happiness is endless because I can now enjoy driving, independence and freedom! Monika I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for helping me to fulfil my dream!!! Nothing is impossible with Monika!!!

She really knows how to create a positive atmosphere, finds new and innovative ways how to teach driving and also helps people to solve their personal problems using TFT and her life coaching skills. It wasn't just driving lesson, it was a great experience. I am very thankful to Monika for her patience and for everything she taught me!

As my wife was taking driving lessons with Monika it was suggested I take an advanced driving assessment to aid my instructional abilities when sitting with my wife when practising her skills. Unfortunately my 30 plus years behind the wheel had impressed habits, many of them not suitable to pass onto a new driver! The assessment lasted for 2 hours and I come away from it with skills I needed to help rather than hinder my wife. The experience left me with a far better understanding of instructing a learner instead of attempting to pass on my bad habits. Monika has a style of educating that is unique and very impressive and along with her easy going and friendly approach I found the whole experience fun and rewarding. I would highly recommend what I did to all partners/friends etc of learning drivers, not only to aid their own driving skills but to be of real positive help to their future free mini-cab drivers!

I passed with Monika in January 2007, was going through the website and noticed I hadn't put up a testimonial. She truley is an amazing instructor, my sister and I were learning at the same time, my sister had a different instructor, when we spoke to each other about our experiences mine were far better than hers, sister ended up changing her instructor! Monika is great and doesn't leave any stone unturned in her teaching, everything is explained and like many others have said, she is also a lovely person, we had a lot of interesting conversations which made the whole experience enjoyable and productive. Highly recommended!

On the 18th of January I finally passed my test after 6 attempts and going through numerous instructors and cars. It was well worth I decided that I will use a different technique to driving since the first techniques was emotionally getting the best of me. All thanks to my determination and Monika’s belief and therapy, this came in handy on that day. I was over whelmed words could not describe how I was feeling. Monika is a amazing driving instructor and if you listen to her advice you will surely pass. I am so grateful and I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU!

I attempted to learn to drive when I was 17, but back then, although I was very interested in cars, I was always happier on two wheels than four. After a rather half-hearted series of lessons with two uninspiring instructors, I decided to stick with bikes. This was fine until three years later, when I had an extremely serious accident and was unable to walk unaided for almost a year.This left me too scared to get on a bike again and incredibly nervous behind the wheel of a car.

About three years ago I decided I would learn to drive. I booked up with a major driving school and was starting to get to grips with things when they changed my instructor. I found I didn't gel at all with the new instructor, and between his teaching methods and residual nervousness from my accident, I started to truly hate driving.

I eventually reached a point where I couldn't even bear to sit behind the wheel, and attempting it would bring on panic attacks - I'd developed a driving phobia. I gave up my lessons and decided I would forget all about driving. The thing is, I'm a bit of a petrolhead - I'm fascinated by cars these days - and it seemed quite sad to have all this interest in cars and no ability to drive them.

Last year I went through a lot of changes in my personal life, and I decided I would have one last try at getting on the road. I realised that this would not happen, though, without addressing the underlying problems that were holding me back. Getting me back behind the wheel would need a very special driving instructor. Fortunately, 'a very special driving instructor' is exactly what Monika happens to be.

The first time I spoke to Monika she took the time to find out a bit about me and I was immediately struck by how at ease she made me feel and how easy she was to talk to. She told me a little about Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and its uses and said she was sure she could help me. I'd never heard of TFT before and was a little sceptical, but I was open-minded enough to give it a go - and I'm so glad I did.

On 23rd July 2009 I nervously got into the car for the first time. It wasn't easy, and it wasn't pleasant, there were tears and there was panicking, but Monika worked with it and started to get to the root of the problem. With the use of TFT I was driving, albeit hesitantly, by the end of that first lesson. Over the next few weeks I made rapid progress under Monika's instruction. We continued to use the TFT when the anxiety got too much, and I passed my theory test in August. I made my first attempt at the practical test in October, and although I failed, I still considered it to be a milestone because in all the time I'd been trying to learn in the past I had never felt confident or capable enough to even try. The test situation did make me more anxious than I'd expected, and it took a bit more work with the TFT to get me through that.

All the while my driving was improving, but my nerves still let me down at the second attempt. Monika didn't let it get to me though, and she gave me the encouragement I needed to keep going. She turned me around completely, and it was soon time for my next test attempt, and this time I felt much more ready. Not that it went without a hitch; I had grown confident in my ability to drive Monika's car, so I was quite rattled when, with little over a week to go, I had to get used to a different car. Even this wasn't so big a problem with Monika's help, though, and even though the prospect of taking my test in an unfamiliar car made me a bit anxious, she kept me calm and believed in my abilities when perhaps I didn't. And today (11th Feb 2010) I passed my driving test! It hasn't quite sunk in yet, but my pass certificate is on the table in front of me and that proves it happened. But I couldn't have done it without Monika's help - she really is a fantastic instructor. The thing is, she's given me skills for life - not just driving, but a way of handling the difficult things life throws at us every day. THANK YOU MONIKA!

Passed just the other day, in the driving rain (no pun intended), and it was Monika's support throughout the lessons that encouraged me to stay calm and relaxed through the whole thing.

I would like to thank Monika for helping me get the licence last month and for giving me the confidence to drive. I am not one of those that were born to drive, and it took me quite a while to coordinate all the skills needed to be a safe driver. I am sure without Monika's patience, positiveness, encourgament, and support, I would never have passed the test. Driving lessons with Monika were always so enjoyable; I learnt much more than driving as she shared with me her interesting life experiences and many inspiring stories. I was so happy when I finally passed, but felt sorry that I would have no more driving lessons to look forward to. Anyone who is looking for a reliable, flexible, understanding and experienced instructor should give Monika a ring!

Już przy pierwszym spotkaniu dalo się odczuć ogromną pasję do tego co robisz i prawdziwy profesjonalizm. Nie ukrywam, iz na początku byłem troszkee sceptycznie nastawiony do kobiety instruktor ale szybko przekonałem sie z byłem w błędzie. Jestem pełen podziwu dla twojej osoby i życzę Ci dalszych sukcesów i tym samym sukcesu twoim przyszłym kursantom. Dzięki jeszcze raz! dla mnie jesteś numer 1!!!

After my sister passed first time with Monika there was never any doubt who would be my driving instructor. I can’t put in any other words, Monika is the most AMAZING driving instructor. I wasn’t the easiest person to teach but Monika was always patient. She let me take my time to get manoeuvres right and was never patronising. She pushed me to reach my full potential, knowing I could perform and making me believe in myself! The passion and enthusiasm that she showed for driving made driving lessons a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the fact that we had a good student teacher relationship also helped. Monika prepared me for the test well, taking me on various test routes, doing mock tests and by giving me useful tips. I used TFT (Thought Field Therapy) before my driving test as I was very nervous. TFT and the fact I had a brilliant driving instructor meant I passed first time with only 4 minors. I would recommend TFT to anyone who feels nervous about their driving test or has a fear, as it really does work! I also used TFT as I have a fear of flying and haven’t flown since 2003. I went to Gatwick with Monika and after using TFT I will be taking my first flight in 6 years in a month’s time and feel very relaxed and calm about it. I can’t thank Monika enough for all the help and support she has given me! If I speak to anyone who wants to learn to drive or is not succeeding with their driving instructor I always recommend Monika.

Being a Londoner, I never felt the need to learn to drive and depended upon public transport, cabs and the kindness of strangers when traveling. I have had a myriad of driving instructors over the years (including a very expensive intensive course), and found that I disliked learning to drive immensely. This changed when the 1st London Driving Academy was recommended to me by a friend. I found Monica to be approachable and understanding. She tailored all lessons to suit my ability, and increased the level of difficulty only when I felt ready for it. The Test: Monica ensured that I was fully prepared for the test. We drove the various test routes many times, and I became familiar with the changes in speed limits, one ways and traffic flows. When it came to taking my test, I was on familiar territory (even though I do not live near the area), mainly due to Monica's persistence. I was incredibly confident on the test, and even overtook (safely of course!) when on the duel carriage-way. It was such a different experience from my first test the year before. I had taken that with another company, and had 5 major faults and 17 minor ones... But with Monica I passed with only 3 minor faults! (And two were for doing 22m.p.h on a road with speed-bumps. Do not make the same mistake!) I am unbelievably grateful to Monica for her patience and understanding that everyone learns in their own way. Lessons were geared to my ability; even when I was having an 'off day', Monica was still calm and collected. We shared many laughs during our lessons. I have recommended Monica to all my friends and my sisters are about to take their lessons with her (they are years younger than me!). I have to say that I now love driving. I drive at every opportunity. I adore the feeling of independence and freedom I have in my own car. In fact, I love driving so much, that I am now on my next challenge... learning to fly a plane! I am training to be a commercial pilot with CTC. (Cars are hampered by speed limits...) Thank you Monica for my confidence and skill. I owe my current career path to your fine teaching and constant support.

Hej Monika! Dziękuje Ci za pomoc w zdobyciu wymarzonego prawa jazdy:) Gdyby nie Ty długo jeszcze musiałabym sie zmagać z trudnościami i kto wie czy odniosłabym sukces...

Wielkie dzięki!!! Pozwolę sobie przy okazji dodać parę slow wszystkich przyszłych kierowców odwiedzających Twoja stronę.

Witam, jeżeli właśnie zdecydowałeś sie robić prawo jazdy lub jesteś juz w trakcie a może zrezygnowałeś w połowie, bo wciąż Ci nie wychodzi, jesteś pełen obaw, stresujesz się a sama myśl o egzaminie paraliżuje Cie i w ogóle wydaje Ci sie ze nie nadajesz sie do tego i pewnie nigdy w życiu nie uda Ci sie zostać kierowca itp...ta wiadomość jest dla Ciebie: Wybierz Monikę na swojego instruktora, naprawdę warto, polecam! Jeżeli kiepsko Ci idzie nauka, nie wierzysz w swoje możliwości to uważam, ze nie znajdziesz lepszego instruktora dla siebie.

Monika nie jest jednym z wielu przeciętnych instruktorów, uprawnienia, które posiada w polaczeniu ze świetną osobowością sprawia ze nawet największy pesymista i niedowiarek osiągnie cel i pewnego dnia wyjedzie własnym samochodem na szerokie;) drogi Londynu. Wiem to z własnego doświadczenia.

Sama miałam problemy z nauka jazdy natury panikuje i marudzę ze nie dam rady zanim jeszcze cokolwiek zacznę robić.

Poprzez kiepski wybór szkoły i niekompetencje instruktorów straciłam sporo czasu i pieniędzy nie mówiąc juz o nerwach. Prawie straciłam nadzieje i wycofałam się. Dzięki Bogu znalazłam Monikę, która dodała mi wiary i pozytywnie nastawiła, a metoda TFT opanowała cały mój paniczny lek związany z jazda i egzaminem - niewiarygodne, ale to naprawdę działa!!! Spróbujcie, warto!!! Nauka z Monika to najkrótsza droga do zdobycia prawka w UK!!!

Before I began driving lessons with Monika, I found learning to drive a chore and after one bad lesson with an instructor who then refused to teach me any longer and then copious numbers of lessons with another instructor with whom I took several failed tests, my confidence was knocked for some time.

It took a while before I decided to go back to driving and I am so glad that it was with Monika. She raised my levels of confidence and made learning to drive an entertaining experience - I actually looked forward to my lessons with her! She understood that learning to drive went beyond solely learning manouvres and rules in a parrot fashion and that a good rapport between student and teacher could make all the difference. Her passion for what she does is inspiring and I can honestly say that I have never had a driving instructor quite like her - she is the best instructor I've ever had.

It came as no surprise when I took my first driving test following Mon's tuition, I passed straight away. Having her in the car with me on the day made all the difference and I can't thank her enough for being such a fantastic instructor as it got to a point a few years ago that I was convinced I would never pass the driving test. Perhaps I just never had the right instructor...

If you are looking for a passionate, knowledgeable, patient, fun instructor then look no further than Mon!

Monika zostala polecona mi przez innego instruktora nauki jazdy, który stwierdzil, ze moze byc to dla mnie lepsze z powodu bariery jezykowej.

Tak zaczely sie nasze lekcje. Monika byla moim trzecim instruktorem jazdy i zdecydowanie najlepszym!!! Moge powiedziec o niej tylko dobre rzeczy: konkretna, rzeczowa, zna sie na tym co robi, wie jak podejsc do ludzi, jest cierpliwa potrafi rozladowac stres, potrafi wyjasnic wszystko tak aby kazdy zrozumial. Jesli sie czegos boisz, jesli ktos powiedzial ci ze nie umiesz jezdzic, jesli uwazasz ze nie zdasz egzaminów idz do Moniki!!!

To naprawde swietna, ciekawa osobowosc, która nie pozwoli ci poddac sie swoim lekom! Nie wazne ilu instruktorów nauki jazdy miales lub mialas wczesniej.

Monika nauczy cie jezdzic i to rewelacyjnie! Goraco polecam!!!

Zawsze myslalam, ze jazda samochodem nie jest dla mnie, ze nigdy sie tego nie naucze.

Z moim pierwszym instruktorem nauki jazdy spedzilam 2 lekcje z czego pierwsza polegala na samej teorii a druga na jezdzie na pierwszym biegu ;(. Na Monike trafilam przez znajoma, która miala z nia lekcje wczesniej.

Mysle ze nikt nie nauczylby mnie lepiej jazdy samochodem, uwazam ze jest to odpowiednia osoba na odpowiednim miejscu.

Wie, co robi i jest w tym rewelacyjna. Zwraca uwage na kazdy szczegól, uczy dobrej obserwacji, bezpiecznej jazdy i logicznego myslenia! Prawo jazdy z Monika to najlepszy wybór!

Monika was my third driving instructor.

The previous two were men and this time I was adamant that I was no longer taking any lessons with any male driving instructors as I didn't want to be patronised anymore. My first driving instructor tried to blame me for an accident that happened whilst I was on his watch. He had no understanding at all for the hospital appointments I needed to have at the time and he gave my slots to somebody else. My second driving instructor was always 10 minutes or so late, did his banking during my lesson time and always needed toilet breaks again during my lessons. Needles to say I wasted about 6 months and a lot of money in the process, whilst making no visible progress.

Then I found Monika. She was always punctual and very understanding over my hospital appointments. Her lessons were methodical and always built on the previous knowledge. There were also clear roadsigns as to what we were going to cover in the next lesson. As I am a teacher myself, I immediately recognised that I had finally found somebody who could teach! Suddenly it all made sense. Monika was very patient when practising various manouvres with me and there was no patronising that I experienced before.

I would have saved a lot of money had I found Monika earlier! Monika is passionate about her work and her drive and enthusiasm are truly infectious! Look no further! You don't have to waste time and money like I did.

You can get the right instructor first time! And what's more Monika will help you to become a safe and confident driver!
