The happy lady in the picture below is Ellie, who this morning went out and earned herself a first time pass.
We had a little bit of work to do on roundabouts, but doing roundabouts wasn’t helping – too scary!, so I had to try something a bit different. We worked on T junctions instead, and having improved her preparation and observation on approach to those, we were able to then translate the same skill-set onto roundabouts. It worked. The penny dropped, and she was able to employ these new found methods, despite the test day butterflies.
Well done, Ellie. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to teach you!
