A St Albans mum has been named driving instructor of the year for going the extra mile.

Amanda Green was nominated by former pupil Michelle Broadley for the competition held for learner driver week.

Michelle said: “My family was going through an incredibly difficult time with my husband facing a double lung transplant. I had all but given up driving because of a previous instructor making me feel incredibly nervous. That was until my son wrote a note about his dad’s operation: ‘What happens if daddy dies – no-one will drive’.

“I couldn’t have done it without Amanda getting me through it all.”

Amanda, who operates as ‘Pass with Amanda’, said: “I feel so privileged to have even been nominated. It was a pleasure to teach Michelle and I can’t thank her enough for her nomination.”

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
