My name is Sarah Brown. I run Chews dog training school in Chingford.
I decided to see if it was possible to drive as a disabled person at
the tender age of 40. Motability put me in touch with the Queen
Elizabeth Foundation in Carshalton. After a full assessment
which determined my need for a hand-control operated car, they
recommended Eshan as a potential instructor.
I am very grateful for that recommendation. From my first lesson, Eshan
complimented my strengths, and helped me to recognise my weaknesses.
Throughout my lessons Eshan has been encouraging, knowledgeable and
very patient. I trusted him to guide me in every aspect of my driving,
including when he thought I was ready to take my test.
My nerves were getting the better of me as my test date approached –
without Eshan’s calming influence, I do not think I would have been so
calm during my test. I passed first time with only 5 minor faults and
was very proud. Even the examiner said that my standard of driving was
impressive compared to other disabled drivers in the past.
I would recommend Eshan to anyone who wishes a patient, experienced
instructor who has your future in driving at heart. Thanks to him, I
have the freedom to go out without inconveniencing friends and family
by constantly asking for lifts. I can get to hospital appointments, vet
appointments, work and holidays on my own. This is a freedom I have
never had before. My grateful thanks can only go to Eshan.
