Our congratulations today go to Amy Short on passing her driving test in bury st edmunds with only 6 driving faults! Now not everything has gone to plan on Amy's road to success... despite of the drama, the tears and the breakdowns you never once gave up and never stopped believing you could achieve! You have come such a long way throughout our emotional journey together, you have been a real gem to teach and even when luck wasn't on you...r side you kept your head and spirits high. I always looked forward to what 'dramatic' story I would hear on your lessons, filling me in on all your life goals and plans. Thank you for believing and keeping the faith in me and Beyoncé during your road to success. It's been long and tough... but I'm so glad you have done it at last, you totally deserved it 🙌🏼 I wish you all the luck in the world for driving, uni and life beyond 👸🏼 always remember, if something doesn't go to plan, 'breath & believe' and dust yourself off and try again! Thanks for being such a pleasure to teach, for not giving up, for listening and putting up with my motivational speeches and singing along to destinys child 😂 keep safe on the roads with Camille the Clio and remember to give me & Beyoncé a wave! Thanks for choosing Team Jem & Beyoncé at 1st for Freedom! Congratulations Amy, well deserved 🎉🚗🎉

Our congratulations go out to Natalie Newman on achieving her test success 🙌🏼 Natalie passed her driving test in Bury St Edmunds this morning receiving only 4 driving faults!

Natalie, a huge well done on passing today and thanks for being the coolest cucumber in lessons 😂🎉 Enjoy your freedom and I hope the car hunting goes well 🚗💨 thanks again for trusting in me and Beyoncé at 1st for Freedom and good luck on those roads!

On a dreary day, Natasha Aitken had a sunny outlook with #testsuccess at Bury St Edmunds!😃.
Tash may not have passed 1st time, however she showed she's no quitter, by gaining her #personalfreedom in "Frankie" with only 4 minor recorded!
What a star ⭐️ she was, everyone has over come their fears to gain a Full Licence, & Tash proved #hardworkpaysoff 👍🏽

Once again Tash well done! Keep safe, see you on the road soon. 🎺& 👋 #1stforfreedom
This what Tash had to say:-
Having known Jeffs lovely wife and daughter for many years when I de...cided it was time to start driving again 1st for Freedom was my first choice! I remember the day Jeff came to pick me up for my first lesson and at the end he turned and said to me "Tash please be honest do you think you can drive with me" my immediate answer was "yes I think we are going to get on well together" and we have! We have laughed together, shared stories with each other and I have been shown how to drive! Sometimes my anxieties got the better of me but Jeff always managed to calm me down and found a way to train me that worked for me, calming my "spaghetti brain"!! He read me so well and he adapted his training methods to my needs! I can't say thank you enough Jeff for all you have done for me and getting the best out of me and believing in me. Now with your help and patience and my determination and hard work I now have my personal freedom! Looking for great driver training??? Go with Jeff or Jemma you will never regret it! #hardworkpaysoff

Today Nargiz gained her #personalfreedom, her hard work & perseverance gave her the result she really wanted. I think that if she hadn't had her seat belt on when the examiner gave her the good news, she would of hugged him to death!!
He struggled to get a word in edge ways thereafter while still trying to get his paperwork done as Nargiz was so excited. I know everybody is happy & ecstatic to pass, but this lady never thought she would have #testsuccess,... but she was wrong!😜
Now Nargiz is off to change her insurance to reflect her new status as a full licence holder.
Nargiz passed in "Hope" our Auto Mini Cooper.
Well must sign off, I will have to tell Nargiz & her husband Mark what I have said, has she is not on any social media. All the very best 😃#1stforfreedom
This what Nargiz had to say:-
Hi Jeff.    Just a quick line to say a big thank you. 
As first time driver, very nervous and with little confidence, your friendly, quiet and patient method of instruction, made me feel relaxed, and gradually helped me to  built up my confidence to being able to drive. 
Often you went well beyond the call of duty to be supportive, explain, and give excellent help with driving maneuvers, theory and practice.  
This patient and quiet method of instruction gave me the confidence to pass my test, and now to enjoy the freedom that being able to drive has given me. 
I give you as my best recommendation, as an excellent,patient, calm, and relaxing driving instructor. 
Again, many, many thanks Nargiz

Last Wednesday I passed my driving test first time with 1st for free...dom driving school and for that I'll always be grateful to both Jeff and Jemma. They both helped and supported me throughout my journey and without them I don't think I would've passed. I did struggle a lot with my theory but 1st for freedom helped me through by using different learning techniques to support and guide me. They always made me feel like I could reach my goals and that they would always help me no matter what. No matter what time or how many lessons I needed they suited me as best they could and were overalls both just amazing driving instructors. If you want to learn to drive 1st for freedom is definitely the way to go as they will help you to get on the road 🚗 thank you so much Jemma and Jeff xxx

"When I started learning with Jeff at 1st for freedom I had already taken 3 tests and had a number of lessons with a different instructor. In my first lesson, Jeff explained my driving journey as a brick wall, I had the foundations but there were gaps and knowledge missing that needed filling. Jeff did this for me in a matter of weeks. He built my confidence and taught me to not only pass my test but to drive in a safe and proper manor. He was only a phone call away when I got stressed and has been so helpful and so reassuring. My experience with Jeff has been amazing. My opinions on my driving lessons changed from being a daunting experience to a joyful one. I returned home today after passing my test eager and exited to go for my first solo drive. Jeff helped me gain my personal freedom and I am very grateful for him taking me on as a student and guiding me to test success!" Ellice

I always keep an eye out for my former students when I'm out & about after all went through so much together. Laughter & occasionally tears, mind & theirs lol! Well Today I received a bouquet of flowers from a former student, Sarah Critchley, who passed test a year ago on 29/11/13 & an email a couple of days ago letting know how things where going. This what Sarah had to say:-
Hi Jeff
Just dropping you a quick line to see how you & your family are doing?
It's been one whole yea...r now since I passed my test, you'll be pleased to know no accidents, and also I drive quite regularly to Milton Keynes to visit clients. Oh, my insurance just dropped by £600 as well. Bonus!
Shortly after I passed my test I got promoted to be a software developer in the January and this has been going quite well so far. It is nice creating the systems as opposed to breaking them as a tester. I believe driving certainly helped me get this position, and it has really helped my confidence in general.
I still hear you in my head to calm down, don't worry about my past, my future is in front of me.
There are some flowers on the way to your address, I hope you enjoy them!
Best Regards
Sarah

Like everyone I enjoy presents however what Sarah & all the other students have achieved should last a life time & I'm proud to have helped all of you! See you on the road soon.

Jaimi was the 1st to pass in this vehicle.
Jaimi had driven both Gracie the Cooper diesel & Binkx the petrol Cooper,
& after learning the differance between the power deliveries of both 
Jaimi choice for her test day was Binkx the petrol Cooper .
Yet again well done & remember drive smart!

Well done Lucy, Lucy started to learn in Lucy our original training car, just like Toby our last passer.
Lucy must have thought she was jinxed! as she had to put up with her 1st test being cancelled due to the Examiner falling ill and then her 2nd was cancelled due to snow just before Christmas!



 






 28th January 2011
Lucy our original training car went into retirement
We hope all of you who learned to drive with Lucy enjoyed your time with her.
Behind Lucy is Gracie, our new Cooper D, just after she had her graphics done.
We hope that all of our clients who were in Lucy will enjoy driving Gracie or
Binkx our Cooper Camden just as much if not more!


 






 24th January 2011
Toby I couldn't tell you! you are our 13th pass & our 1st in Gracie, our Mini Cooper D.
Congratulations, enjoy your driving & don't change the colour of your Mini!
