L of a Way 2 Pass

Diane is famously known in the industry as 'the tappy hand witch'!

Taken from Diane's website:
'Since 2002, L of a way 2 Pass has been helping learners to become safe, confident, and competent drivers, and we are always striving to come up with new ways to help you and your learners, via workshops, online courses and zoom sessions.'
