I have passed my behind the wheel in first attempt and that too with only three classes. Thanks a lot Sherry for guiding me throughout and for the valuable tips you have given for the areas I have to focus on. I would highly recommend Sherry and the academy. They are highly professional and friendly.
Thanks again Sherry!!
