Aida was a wonderful and brilliant driving instructor in Peterborough, who taught me the skills required throughout my entire learning experience. I would recommend Aida to absolutely everyone, as she was so kind and patient with me when I made mistakes. Before many lessons, especially at the beginning, I was extremely terrified and anxious, however Aida gave me the confidence and skills needed to be comfortable whilst driving. Aida also provides great methods of teaching which suits the individual and has amazing skills at explaining situations and procedures on the road. I was able to pass my test with only two minors which I am extremely happy and pleased about and I will be eternally grateful to Aida for being a patient, kind and excellent instructor.

Aida was the best driving instructor - patient and calm, always smily and polite even when I made mistakes. I didn't expect that I could learn everything in only few months - from finding biting point to all those crazy roundabouts! Now i'm so confidant and it's all thanks to Aida. I am so grateful to her for everything she has done to make sure I pass test. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Aida is an excellent and thoughtful instructor who offers easy and straightforward training. She has helped me gain a better understanding of the rules on the road and how to best avoid dangerous situations and accidents by means of safe driving. I have passed the driving test on my first attempt and I owe this success to Aida. I would highly recommend Aida as a driving instructor if you wish to learn how to drive safely and confidently.

My name is Aida I am 46 years old, I have 24 years worth of driving experience and has worked as an approved driving instructor since 2008.
I have 3 grown up children, all of them I taught to drive and the eldest is a driving instructor as well. I have a big live experience of teaching different subjects and I love this job.
I am fluently speak in 3 different languages:
English, Lithuanian and Russian.
I also speak some Polish and understand some Slovak and Czech.
I have lived in London for 13 years and I was teaching people in the busiest areas of East London. During my time as a driving instructor I have enjoyed helping hundreds of people from 17-68 of age.
I realise that being relaxed and happy whilst learning to drive is so important and provides the perfect base for confidence building and development.
I moved to Peterborough in 2014 and looking forward to building up my portfolio of passes in Peterborough area.
I am a patient, friendly understanding and considerate person, which reflects on my driving instructions. My credo: "Keep calm what ever happens!”
I love my job as it allows me to meet and teach people from different backgrounds and of course it gives me a huge sense of achievement when they pass their test.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, also I love traveling and do some voluntary work.
I shall look forward to teaching you how to drive, please contact to book a lessons or for more information.
The examiner will ask you one:
· ‘tell me’ question (where you explain how you’d carry out a safety task) at the start of your test, before you start driving
· ‘show me’ question (where you show how you’d carry out a safety task) while you’re driving
1. Tell me how you’d check that the brakes are working before starting a journey.
Brakes should not feel spongy or slack. Brakes should be tested as you set off. Vehicle should not pull to one side.
2. Tell me where you’d find the information for the recommended tyre pressures for this car and how tyre pressures should be checked.
Manufacturer’s guide, use a reliable pressure gauge, check and adjust pressures when tyres are cold, don’t forget spare tyre, remember to refit valve caps.
3. Tell me how you make sure your head restraint is correctly adjusted so it provides the best protection in the event of a crash.
The head restraint should be adjusted so the rigid part of the head restraint is at least as high as the eye or top of the ears, and as close to the back of the head as is comfortable. Note: Some restraints might not be adjustable.
4. Tell me how you’d check the tyres to ensure that they have sufficient tread depth and that their general condition is safe to use on the road.
No cuts and bulges, 1.6mm of tread depth across the central three-quarters of the breadth of the tyre, and around the entire outer circumference of the tyre.
5. Tell me how you’d check that the headlights and tail lights are working. You don’t need to exit the vehicle.
Explain you’d operate the switch (turn on ignition if necessary), then walk round vehicle (as this is a ‘tell me’ question, you don’t need to physically check the lights).
6. Tell me how you’d know if there was a problem with your anti-lock braking system.
Warning light should illuminate if there is a fault with the anti-lock braking system.
7. Tell me how you’d check the direction indicators are working. You don’t need to exit the vehicle.
Explain you’d operate the switch (turn on ignition if necessary), and then walk round vehicle (as this is a ‘tell me’ question, you don’t need to physically check the lights).
8. Tell me how you’d check the brake lights are working on this car.
Explain you’d operate the brake pedal, make use of reflections in windows or doors, or ask someone to help.
9. Tell me how you’d check the power-assisted steering is working before starting a journey.
If the steering becomes heavy, the system may not be working properly. Before starting a journey, 2 simple checks can be made.
Gentle pressure on the steering wheel, maintained while the engine is started, should result in a slight but noticeable movement as the system begins to operate. Alternatively turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning.
10. Tell me how you’d switch on the rear fog light(s) and explain when you’d use it/them. You don’t need to exit the vehicle.
Operate switch (turn on dipped headlights and ignition if necessary). Check warning light is on. Explain use.
11. Tell me how you switch your headlight from dipped to main beam and explain how you’d know the main beam is on.
Operate switch (with ignition or engine on if necessary), check with main beam warning light.
12. Open the bonnet and tell me how you’d check that the engine has sufficient oil.
Identify dipstick/oil level indicator, describe check of oil level against the minimum and maximum markers.
13. Open the bonnet and tell me how you’d check that the engine has sufficient engine coolant.
Identify high and low level markings on header tank where fitted or radiator filler cap, and describe how to top up to correct level.
14. Open the bonnet and tell me how you’d check that you have a safe level of hydraulic brake fluid.
Identify reservoir, check level against high and low markings.

1. When it’s safe to do so, can you show me how you wash and clean the rear windscreen?
2. When it’s safe to do so, can you show me how you wash and clean the front windscreen?
3. When it’s safe to do so, can you show me how you’d switch on your dipped headlights?
