Business Description:

I have been teaching for 15 years and love my job. I get so much job satisfaction from seeing students progress and pass their driving test. Learning to drive can be a very daunting and nerve-racking experience, I try to make my students feel calm and relaxed during their lessons and build their confidence to be a safe driver.

I passed my test 1st time today thanks to Heidi!
I’m absolutely over the moon I can’t believe I did it but it was all thanks to Heidi (BEST INSTRUCTOR IN BASINGSTOKE) I was incredibly nervous and also being a massive over thinker she gave me the best advice I could’ve asked for! And now I’ve passed all thanks to Heidi, HIGHLY recommend Heidi she is the best and thanks again! X

Callum O’Connor | 14 November, 2022

Was with Heidi for a year and have no complaints what so ever. Passed my test first time with only two faults and feel confident to continue driving on my own. Heidi has taught me how to drive safely and feel confident on the roads. Not only did I have an amazing instructor but I made a friend for life and will forever be grateful for her. She is a kind, gentle and patient woman who creates a welcoming and supportive environment for all of her students. Couldn’t recommend her more.

Amber Lewis | 11 May, 2022

I can’t recommend Heidi enough! All throughout my learning experience she was great. Not only is she professional but she is also very friendly. Im a very anxious person and she helped so so much with boosting my confidence. I will miss my lessons very much

Having driven with previous instructors, I can genuinely appreciate how good Heidi is as an instructor. From her fool-proof guides, hints & tips, to her meticulous instructing approach, all get you prepared, confident and ready for your test. With my confidence lacking prior to starting lessons with LEAP, Heidi was very attentive and positive with everything she did throughout which calmed me down and has made me a much better driver as a result. From beginning to end, Heidi has supported me and been a huge confidence builder and I have looked forward to building with every lesson, and having some laughs along the way too is always a bonus! I couldn’t recommend her enough - Heidi you’re a star ⭐️

Michael Ash | 24 March, 2022

I can’t express how thankful I am of Heidi, not only did I enjoy every lesson but I learnt so much! Made me feel so confident in myself and my driving. If I could I would give more then 5 stars! Highly recommend !

Isla Moffat | 22 March, 2022

I would give more than 5 stars if I could. I always looked forward to my lessons, and never left them with anything less than a big grin. Heidi made me feel at ease, and became a friend. I would do it all over again if I could, and couldn't recommend her enough 🙂

Keira Blue | 20 March, 2022

Learning to drive with Heidi was the most fun experience, I loved it! She always made me feel safe and comfortable and she helped me remain calm, even when I would do something wrong. Heidi is so kind and we always had a good laugh during the lessons and I will miss our weekly drives. I could not recommend Heidi enough, I loved learning to drive with her!!!

Poppy | 22 January, 2022

I would highly recommend Heidi as a driving instructor! She always makes you feel at ease and is so patient with you. She helped me gain my confidence in driving and driving with her always felt fun! She’s easy to talk to and is such a lovely person!

Courtney | 22 January, 2022

I’m so grateful I found Heidi, after issues with my first instructor and problems with my anxiety I struggle with confidence to try again. Heidi took the time to get to know me was patient and adapted her teaching methods. She has not only taught me but 3 of my closest friends and safe to say she will probably teach the rest of them when they have a go I could not recommend her enough. Thank you for everything Heidi

Austin | 20 January, 2022

To anyone looking to learn to drive I can’t recommend Heidi enough, I’m autistic but couldn’t stand driving but needed to cause of work and where I live and she helped me come less overwhelmed and couldn’t have been more patient and understanding. I passed my test with her a few months ago and honestly couldn’t of done it without her. Amazing teacher and amazing person

Oliver | 20 January, 2022

If Heidi could get me to pass my driving test then she can get anyone to pass! I took 5 tests to pass as I crumbled under pressures but Heidi never once lost faith in me. She was so patient and I can’t thank her enough. I now feel confident behind the wheel and feel like I’d be prepared for any driving conditions as I had lots of practice and fun with Heidi!!

Ellie | 29 August, 2020

I have just passed my test first time with Heidi, and I couldn’t fault her one bit! She is calm, patient, and will push you to be the best driver you can be. She answered any questions I had without hesitation and made sure I understood everything before moving onto the next topic. After struggling to get on with other instructors and about to give up learning to drive all together I came across Heidi’s business card, and it was the best choice I ever made, as you don’t just get a driving instructor with heidi you get a great friend!

Aimee | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is a truly brilliant driving instructor! She is patient and calm in every lesson enabling you to build your confidence to pass your test. You don’t only gain a driving license with Heidi, (she has a 100% pass rate) but a true friend at the same time.

Ellie | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is the best instructor and makes all her pupils feel at ease. She connects with them at their level and has amazing results. Simply the best.

Carrie Swan | 29 August, 2020

Heidi taught me how to drive almost 8 years ago and she was absolutely fantastic. I looked forward to my lessons with her, she’s hilarious, incredibly patient and extremely knowledgable behind the wheel. It was a bittersweet day when I passed my test but I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking to learn how to drive!

Rosie York | 29 August, 2020

Brilliant teacher, and amazing patience! And felt confident when sitting my test 🙂

Rebecca Watt | 29 August, 2020

I was very nervous when I started my lessons but Heidi helped me gain confidence in no time and understood all of my struggles and always made me feel comfortable. She is faultless and made a stressful time learning very enjoyable! I always looked forward to my next driving lesson. I passed first time thanks to Heidi! Don’t think I could’ve found anyone any better! I’ll always recommend Heidi to anyone that asks!

Leah Hunt | 29 August, 2020

Heidi made me feel so relaxed and comfortable whilst learning to drive. Professional, friendly and easily approachable with any concerns you may have. I felt very safe and gained so much confidence on the road, so much so I passed 1st time! Couldn’t have found anyone better and would highly recommend.

Heidi made me feel so confident and supported me throughout learning how to drive! I passed first time with her, I would definitely recommend Heidi to anyone learning how to drive. I don’t think I would have passed if it wasn’t for her!

Hannah Duncan | 29 August, 2020

Heidi was absolutely brilliant when I was learning to drive! I’d be waiting by the window for her before every lesson haha! So helpful and understanding which made the lessons a lot easier!

Latiya Elie | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is an amazing driving instructor! After being messed about by another instructor, Heidi agreed to take me on, and done a great job teaching me! I passed with flying colours, 0 faults and a completely clean driving certificate!

Would recommend Heidi White to anyone and everyone looking to learn how to drive.

John Chubb | 29 August, 2020

Amazing instructor, only had a couple of lessons and passed, wish I started with Heidi, Made me feel so comfortable and confident!

Daniella wild | 29 August, 2020

Heidi was absolutely incredible when it came to my lessons! I initially had a strong disliking to driving but by the end of my lessons, I was really looking forward to my lessons and didn't want them to end. Either way, I passed first time and couldn’t be more proud to recommend Heidi to all my friends and family who completed lessons and passed their tests first time too!

Natasha Selfe | 29 August, 2020

I would highly recommend Heidi as a driving instructor. As well as making learning to drive a fun experience, she was extremely patient and made sure I was completely prepared and calm before taking my test

Rebecca F | 29 August, 2020

Loved every lesson with Heidi, she made me feel comfortable and supported throughout. She is so positive and won’t let you give up, can’t recommend her enough. Wouldn’t of been able to pass first time without her!

Joanna Chart | 29 August, 2020

Not only is Heidi a knowledgable and great driving instructor, she is easy to get on with and makes learning to drive relaxing and enjoyable. Couldn’t be recommended more!

Jake Keep | 29 August, 2020

I was lucky enough to have Heidi as my instructor throughout my driving lessons/test, and if it wasn’t for her motivation and friendly approach, I doubt I would’ve continued with the experience! Heidi is a lovely woman, who’s extremely professional, very patient and always made me feel so comfortable. I can’t give Heidi any faults at all. Overall, she’s a fantastic instructor!

Megan de Burton | 29 August, 2020

I loved every lesson I had with Heidi, her witty comments and dedication to making sure I left that lesson proud was what got me through the bad days! She’s kind, understanding & pushes you to do your best. I miss my lessons with Heidi and I’m extremely proud I passed first time, all down to the help she gave me!! Highly recommend

Abigail D’Anna-Brown | 29 August, 2020

An absolutely lovely instructor who supports her students in confidence whilst driving. She is wonderful for people just starting to learn to drive or even those who’ve already started! She knows your driving ability more than you do sometimes! Cannot give her faults at all! She will only send you test ready!

Carah Newlands | 29 August, 2020

I was recommended Heidi for my driving lessons and I am so happy I went with her, I was very nervous about learning to drive and she immediately put me at ease and helped me grow in confidence. She was always professional and always made me feel very comfortable throughout every lesson! I passed my test first time all thanks to Heidi. Couldn’t thank her enough for everything, she is amazing!

Jessica Sadler | 29 August, 2020

I learned to drive with Heidi as soon as I turned 17. I didn’t have access to a car at home and learned entirely with Heidi – my little every day practice at home meant I had slight confidence issues when driving but she really gave me the confidence on the road. We had such a good time and was really friendly and supportive. I learned to drive with Heidi, passed within a year, first time, and only got one minor.

Everything was explained perfectly and every lesson was enjoyable. I still remember it like it was yesterday and enjoyed it so much I went back to do my pass plus with her. 110%

Emily O’Hare | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is the kindest and caring driving instructor you could find, I started off as a super anxious driver but low and behold Heidi helped me become confident in driving keeping me calm at all times. She talked everything through with before we did it and particularly with roundabouts she’d pull up her diagrams and explain how to go about driving them, each explanation was clear and easy to understand. Heidi is the most down to earth driving instructor with vast understanding of nerves and other such things. I would 150% recommend Heidi to learn to drive with.

Charly Labrooy | 29 August, 2020

I was a very anxious person in general and Heidi just completely puts you at ease. I struggled a bit at first but she knew just how to push me in the right direction. She explains everything very well and sets you up perfectly to pass. She’s definitely the best instructor to have a laugh with as well. I’d learn with her all over again!

Megan | 29 August, 2020

I had such a great experience learning to drive with Heidi. She made me feel very comfortable throughout my lessons and gave me lots of confidence. Heidi is not only a great instructor but a lovely person too. Would recommend to anyone.

Lucy | 29 August, 2020

Could not fault Heidi at all. Amazing driving instructor that pretty much worked magic on me due to me being such a nervous driver. Never a dull lesson, such a good sense of humour. 110% recommend

Caitlin | 29 August, 2020

I was recommended Heidi when I was learning to drive and it was the best decision I made. Heidi was patient and supportive, taught me what I needed to know to pass my test and how to be safe on the road. Went out of her way at all times during the day, including weekends, to make sure I was fully prepared for my test which I passed first time thanks to Heidi. I cannot recommend Heidi enough – many family members and friends have passed first time with her also. Great instructor!!

Rianna Grainger | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is the most caring, calm, understanding and patient person I’ve ever met. She completely takes in your worries and leads lessons around your strengths before battling your weakness! Being in the car with her completely puts your mind at ease. I can’t thank Heidi enough for the belief and confidence she had in me and helped me build on those personally too. I’m so proud that I was able to pass my test but I always miss my weekly lessons with her. We had such a laugh.

Janie | 29 August, 2020

Coming into driving nervous she really calmed my nerves always talked things through with me, it made driving easy with her sense of humour and just general caring about you wanting you to succeed and at the end of all the lessons with passing your driving test you finish off with a friend I cannot stress this enough this is the driving instructor you need.

Tommy Watts | 29 August, 2020

I learnt with Heidi over 5 years ago and couldn’t recommend her enough to anyone learning to drive! She builds good relationships with students and is very professional. Heidi made me feel calm when learning, she helped me gain the confidence to pass my test but to also feel confident in my own car. I did pass plus with Heidi, she made it fun and built my confidence on the motorway.

Abigail | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is a great driving instructor with a great sense of humour, who makes you feel at ease. Whilst learning to drive, she was flexible and went above and beyond to fit lessons around my work and college timetable. Heidi allows you to learn at your own pace and she was very supportive throughout and during the build up to the date of my test.

Danielle Farr | 29 August, 2020

Heidi is a highly recommended driving instructor! I was always scared to start driving and I always lacked in confidence. When I started driving with Heidi she always made me feel calm and relaxed. Heidi is very patient and knows how to make you feel comfortable and confident. I had so much fun learning to drive with Heidi, she is honestly a barrel of laughs! I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!!

Leighton | 29 August, 2020

I passed my driving instructor just over a year ago and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! She helped me to overcome my anxieties about driving very patiently and effectively. Would always look forward to our lessons.

Becky | 29 August, 2020

I’ve had a few driving instructors and was very nervous about starting to driving again, but Heidi made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I passed my driving test first time and was over the moon, could not have done it without her! Such a lovely woman and a genuine friend, I very much miss my driving lessons because of her!

Kiera McCorry | 29 August, 2020

I passed my text with Heidi 2.5 years ago, she is the most patient instructor and friendly instructor. I lacked in confidence and she helped me gain enough confidence to pass my test. Cannot recommend her enough!
