Simona Barsketyte

Simona Barsketyte took her driving lesson with Dagenham driving school, Jan 2016.

Like most student there were days she done well and some days not so well. This is due to how we all learn and its also called the learning curve.

One of the skills Simona had problems with is ‘meeting traffic’. Only just few days before the driving test, Simona truly understood it’s all about attitude when it come to giving way to other road users to help your self to staying safe on the road. We have priority and not rights.

Sure enough Simona passed with only 4 minor faults and soon going to give birth.

It was a great pleasure teaching Simona and soon another student like her will come.

The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science

I have read this book many times written by,

Thomas Troward

This book contains the substance of a course of lectures recently given by the writer in the Queen Street Hall, Edinburgh. Its purpose is to indicate the Natural Principles governing the relation between Mental Action and Material Conditions, and thus to afford the student an intelligible starting‑point for the practical study of the subject.

Fear of driving by Evelyn Evans-Appiah

Fear and anxiety by Evelyn Evans-Appiah

I passed my driving test in 1981 and drove daily for work and leisure.  I recently developed fear, anxiety and panic attack which made me freeze behind the steering wheel. I stopped driving altogether.  My GP referred me for counselling and I decided to have some driving lessons as well.  I Goggled and found Noel Driving SchoolGrade 6 instructor.  I was fascinated about the grading and contacted him.  I explained to him that I had psychological problems and wanted to know about him and his grading.  The first few minutes of talking to him made me realised that he was the right person for me.  With my own background of health and social care, we were in tune with regards to mutual understanding.

The first three lessons with him, I was panicky and useless and I felt sorry for myself.  But Noel was patient and tried to calm me down.  We kept stopping and he will  tell me a story referring to some incidents, and how to see the world around me.  His coaching was parallel with my therapy sessions.  Noel recommended a book – ‘The Genie Within by Harry Carpenter’.  I have had this book for a week and nearly finished reading it.  Reading the book feels as if someone is talking to me.

Just five driving sessions with Noel, I have overcome my fear and anxiety and my therapist is extremely happy.  I will recommend Noel personally to people who want to learn to drive coupled with some sort of an underlying conditions.  After all they do say ‘ The sweetness of the pudding is in the eating’.  Give Noel Christopher a try and you will not regret it.

Regards – Evelyn

Who is Minding the Mind

I recently read an article via TunedBody.com, “Scientists Finally Show How Your Thoughts Can Cause Specific Molecular Changes To Your Genes,“ that cites a recent study published in the journal Psycho­neuro­endocrinology, and it talks about just how powerful our subconscious blocks can be in terms of governing our life.

The Quest for The Cures

The World against CANCER

http://www.cancertutor.com/cancer-documentary/

Here are 2 steps to understand how cancer cells feed.

Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg 1931 Nobel Prize Winner The Real Cause of Cancer Dr Otto Warburg discovered the real cause of cancer in 1923 and he received the Nobel Prize for doing so in 1931.

Dr Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for cell physiology at Berlin.

He investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells. “Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline.

  • Water splits into H+ and OH- ions
  • if there is an access of H+, it is acidic
  • if there is an access of OH- ions, then it is alkaline

” In his work The Metabolism of Tumours he demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions:

  1. Acidosis
  2. hypoxia (lack of oxygen)
  3. Lack of oxygen and acidosis are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other.

“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception.” – Dr. Otto Warburg

“Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.” Otto Warburg.

Dr Warburg has made it clear that the prime cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency (brought about by Toxemia). Dr Warburg discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen.

One method is the Ozone Therapy

Flood Your Body with Oxygen

by Paul Fassa

(NaturalNews) The most overlooked solution to all manner of illness and disease is perhaps the simplest. All pathogens, viruses, and parasites are anaerobic. They thrive in the absence of oxygen, but cannot survive with an abundance of oxygen. Even cancer cells cannot exist in oxygen. They depend on fermenting glucose to survive and multiply.

The most common and effective therapy for oxygenating is ozone therapy, which was practiced in the USA from the late 19th Century through the 1940s. But since the 1940s the FDA has come down hard on ozone therapy in the USA, while much of Europe, Russia, Cuba, and Mexico use ozone therapy now and continue to prove its efficacy without side effects.

Ozone Therapy

So if oxygenating is so great, then why aren’t emphysema patients able to walk out of their wheelchairs? The O2 oxygen supplied by those canisters helps people breathe, but doesn’t create the process of internally manufacturing detoxifying enzymes. The O3 ozone has an unstable atom that breaks away as O1, which penetrates tissue and serum cells more rapidly than O2, initiates unique metabolic processes. Both healing and detoxification occur rapidly as a result.

Ozone therapy is currently used successfully in Germany, Spain, Russia, the Caribbean, Mexico, Cuba and other nations. The results are astounding, and there are no adverse effects. Ozone is normally administered as a liquid by IV or injection and simultaneously as a gas though a tube placed in the anus. Because of potential Herxheimer reactions (“healing crisis” from toxins released) that can discourage one from continuing, full percentage dosages are not administered until the fourth session.

Then the next four sessions are for healing at full strength. A clinical evaluation is made after each series of four sessions, each of which takes no more than a half hour. The results are often dramatic. Most chronic diseases and cancers are cured completely in less time than most other alternative treatments take.

Ozone therapy is often used simply to improve health by intense detoxification, even for those who are not suffering from a particular disease. Of course, doctors were not taught this in medical schools. Those health practitioners who are interested have to receive special training at specialized facilities.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is often effective by placing the patient in a highly pressurized chamber of pure oxygen. This more expensive method requires specially trained personnel as well as special bulky equipment.

Oxygenating at Home

Non IV use ozone generators for home use are available for ozonating water and purifying air, even for absorbing ozone anally or vaginally. But the manufacturers of these devices are often harassed or shut down by the FDA.

Food grade H2O2 or hydrogen peroxide can be mixed with water and consumed as a method of oxygenating serum and tissue cells. Food grade means it’s pure and without stabilizers, making it safe for consumption if properly diluted. The over the counter is H2O2 3.5% non-food grade. The 35% food grade H2O2 has to be properly diluted.

But handling 35% hydrogen peroxide is dangerous since it is so caustic if not properly diluted. It can burn. So now there are lower percentage and safer food grade hydrogen peroxides available, as low as 12%.

Since “Mr. Oxygen” McCabe’s book Flood Your Body With Oxygen as well as his videos, audios, and live lecture tours, several “designer supplements” that create oxygen in the body have emerged for health conscious consumers. They are usually mixed in water and consumed without the hassle of ordering food grade H2O2 and diluting it properly for consumption.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’97

Wonderful words of truth.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’97.
Wear sunscreen.
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.
The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience…
I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked…
You’re not as fat as you Imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind.
The kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you.

Sing.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

Floss.

Don’t waste your time on jealousy;
Sometimes you’re ahead,
Sometimes You’re behind.
The race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults;
If you Succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch.

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
Life.
The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/b/baz_luhrmann/sunscreen.html ]
Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.
Whatever you do, don’t Congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either.
Your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.
Enjoy your body, Use it every way you can… Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people Think of it,
It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own…

Dance… even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Brother and sister together we’ll make it through
Someday your spirit will take you and guide you there
I know you’ve been hurting, but I’ve been waiting to be there
For you.
And I’ll be there, just tell me now, whenever I can.
Everybody’s free.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good.

Be nice to your siblings;
They are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard;
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will Philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you.
Maybe you have a trust fund, Maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen…

(Brother and sister together we’ll make it through
Someday your spirit will take you and guide you there
I know you’ve been hurting, but I’ve been waiting to be there
For you. And I’ll be there, just tell me now, whenever I can.
Everybody’s free.)

Pranayama Breathing by Noel Christopher

Pranayama Breathing by Noel Christopher

This is what I have achieved in my meditation state for over 3 years without knowing, seeing the stars all around you and the body become weightless. Finally I was able to understand what it means. This video on Pranayama does work but it’s not the only way, as I have achieved it through focusing on a single object or thoughts using imagination like walking into my house in the future also. As the old saying goes, there are many path to the mountain top. Share this link to others.

Review by Ying Wu for Barking Driving School

Driving lesson review by Ying Wu for Noel Driving School

After many driving lesson and months of training with my previous instructor, I put myself forward for my first driving test.

During a practice session five days before my test, I was forced to swerve after a driver changed lanes from the right at the last minute in front of my car while I was on a high speed bend of a dual carriageway. As a result, I almost hit a car on the left. Having blamed that bad driver, my driving instructor (fake name “Terry”) advised me use the brake gently if a similar situation were to happen again.

I was completely lost for words as to what I had just heard. Firstly, due to the lack of awareness training given to me by Terry, how could I be expected to predict this type of event is about to happen?

Without knowing to cover my brake pedal in an unknown situation, how can I quickly switch my right foot from the gas pedal to the brake pedal? And, more importantly, how can I slow down in a calm way? My training to that point would only lead me to do an emergency stop, which could cause other cars to hit me badly from behind. Naturally, I explained to Terry about all of my fears hoping for further explanations. Disappointedly, he told that I worried too much, and that I was just unlucky to have encountered that situation.

He even told me that I would not be that unlucky during the actual test.

I was still in such a shock when I got home. I couldn’t believe what just happened to me and what I was told afterwards by Terry.

I started to doubt whether I had missed any major learning points. I started to search for my answers independently. The more I researched, the more I was convinced that I hadn’t been taught with the “correct way” of driving. However, by then it was too late to cancel my test for free. By then I had already paid over £1,000 to Terry over a course of 50+ driving lessons during the past 6 months. As expected, I failed my first driving test. But, what I didn’t expect is that I failed so spectacularly.

I had been lead to believe my driving was of a good standard by terry. So I was surprised to have failed even before I moved out the car park at the test centre. I received a staggering 2 serious and 13 minor faults.

This result is a complete contrast to my theory test, from which I received a 100% score. Since Terry sat in the car during the entire test, he again blamed the examiner being too strict. He kept saying how well I did as I managed to pull through the car in the car park without scratching other cars, and I didn’t hit anything or cause any traffic jam. He went on and on. But, by then I had completely lost confidence in him. I knew I had made a serious mistake in hiring Terry to start with.

I am very glad that I have learnt from my mistakes and cut my losses quickly.

I am proud to say that I have found Noel Christopher, a Grade 6 instructor to teach me (less than 6% of them in this country received this top grade). He doest just teach the best driving practise, he teaches with methods and procedures that I can understand as a new driver and gives me confidence that when I do pass I will be safe on the roads with my young daughter in the car. All Terry taught me were the mechanics of how a car works. Noel is teaching me how to drive.

Review Leva Rakausk

Review by Leva Rakausk for Noel Driving School operating in Dagenham

What I find best about Noel Christopher Driving instructor is the ease into the lessons and how easy it is to feel calm when a problem arises.

Many instructors will tell you after the driving lessons how you did. But with Noel, there are quick stops and feedback on how you can do which is the best. I found my 23 hours with previous instructors fun and easy however there was no real understanding of how I was progressing and with Noel Christopher driving instructor I found that I had learnt more in my first hour than in my whole 23 previous ones. The lessons are fun but intense. A sure success to passing.

WARNING! Copy cat Driving and Theory Test web sites

DVSA is warning learner drivers to avoid copycat websites and save money by using GOV.UK.
If you type the names of some popular government services into search engines, some of your search results might be ads for sites that offer a service you could get for free (or for much less) on GOV.UK, the government’s own website.

Driving test bookings

Some of these copycat websites offer to book theory and practical driving tests, and look like they might be official, but they actually charge a premium for their services.

Some websites charge:

up to £30 for just booking a test, on top of the driving test fee itself
a ‘pass protection’ fee with the promise of a free retest that very few customers actually qualify to use
Copycat websites don’t let you pick an actual appointment, and don’t give you instant confirmation of your booking.

Find out how to save money by using GOV.UK and what the government is doing about copycat websites

Learner drivers click on the DVSA official website and do not get ripped off!

Reversing Around The Corner

Conversation with a driving instructor on:

Reversing Around The Corner (PST 3)

Belvedere South London at the DVSA test centre

I met Mr Begum, outside the test centre while our students were on the driving test.

I shall address the driving instructor as Mr Begum and his student as Mrs Sara. The people are really but not their names.

We were discussing about the driving school market and how prices are going down and quality of service is at the lowest.

Mr Begum has over 15 years’ experience as a driving instructor in the East London working for national, local driving school and as an independent instructor. He was quite intrigued, how I got a Grade 6 (advertised on my car Grade 6) on my check test and he asked, “What is the secret.” I smiled and gave some useful tips.

Begum: “My friend, I have been teaching Sara to do the reverse round the corner so many times! She is just not able to grasp the concept. So how do you teach the reverse around the corner to a student who just not able to grasp the idea after so many attempts?”

As he was talking to me I can feel his desire and willingness to learn is high, but not able to find a solution or to discuss it with others so far.

Me: “Well Begum, you both have been trying hard, but there seem to be, lack of understanding and the level of communication.”

“The first step is ask her what she is finding difficult; is it the controls, observation, the fear of doing it wrong and her feelings! Be very understanding and sympathetic when she replies.”

“Here is a method which I have used many times with great success for student like Sara. Do you want to know the technique?”

Begum: “Yes Noel, she also said I can’t remember what to do and when to do it”

In my thoughts I remembered how my 6 years son use to say, “I can’t remember what I did in school” ,until the day when I told him ‘If you keep saying it, soon you will not remember your mother, father and brothers’. He stopped saying it.

Me: “Dig deeper when you see her next, you will be surprised. Ask her, If you can show her a technique so unique you will remember and also overcome fear, will you try it? And be quiet until she speaks. If she says yes, then be firm and tell her we both need to participate and we both should work together, is that ok? Make sure you get a firm reply. To put a smile on her face, make a joke. “It will not cost you any extra money ‘lol.’ “

“Anyway if she has good car controls and observation but not able to remember, here is a simple method”.

The method called ‘BAED:
● B for – Brief it in simple steps
● A for – Ask the pupil to Teach it to you
● E for – Encourage the pupil
● D for – Do it while taking it through

Brief the manoeuvre again by reducing the steps in 3 simple steps. Straight reverse then the point of turn and straight reverse.

Now ask her if she can teach it to you in simple steps. At this point help her at the key stages if needed.

Encourage her as and when appropriate

Ask her to do it using the same technique but talk it through as she does the manoeuvre.

Do the above A – E – D the next time she does the reverse around the corner again

This technique is very powerful tool; it’s used by professional coaches, as the student becomes self-talk instructor. Confident will increase and fear will begin to fade and memory recall will increase, It’s a win, win situation for both of you, you get the satisfaction of teaching it and she get the wow Effect! I call this the driver within you

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
Thomas A. Edison

Try this method if it does not work you have not lost anytime and I shall be happy to give you another method a sure fire way to increase in overcoming most obstacle in life. If the method works please give me a feedback it will be most appreciated.”

After about 2 weeks Mr Begum called me on the phone. His voice expressed joy and enthusiasm.

Begum: “Hello Noel how are you?”

Me: “Very well thank you and hope your business is doing well!”

Begum: “Noel its ok. I tried the method and it really does works, she is so happy now. Thank you so much in helping me and your time you spent the other day. Please tell me how I can increase my business?”

So we chatted about 1 hour, how to improve teaching and learning to accommodate different strategies to reach a desired outcome.

Here is a typical driving instructor is willing to change so he may provide a better service and serve his pupils needs.

“Helping other does not necessarily will cost much, only your time but it can have a profound effect on you”

Life after death scientific proof

Is there Life after death proof by German scientists.

Throughout the centuries many great leaders, scholars, religious teachers like Jesus and all religion have known and thoughts us we are sprite with a body. Now science may be a step closer in answering the big question: Is there life beyond our physical body.

A team of medical and psychologists doctors from the Technische Universität of Berlin, have announced that they had proven by clinical experimentation, the existence of some form of life after death. It is based on the conclusions of a study using a new type of medically supervised near-death experiences, that allow patients to be clinically dead for almost 20 minutes before being brought back to life.

Bharath feedback

Hi Noel,

Below is my feedback.

I can confidently say Noel is a well experienced driving instructor who understands the psychology of a learner driver. After carefully assessing my driving skills, Noel has taught me not only the technique of driving but also gave good examples of mistakes that people generally commit during a driving test so that I can remember them and not do the same.

He is patient, punctual and makes driving lessons interesting by sharing facts, anecdotes and short stories to improve our general driving and hazard perception.

Also Noel has a natural ability of mentoring and skills training which is an added advantage which not only helped me to overcome nervousness, learn to drive more confidently but also chat about the skills needed in life to be successful.
I have always enjoyed my driving lessons and definitely recommend Noel.

Raj Chandarana fear of driving

Fear of Driving by Raj Chandarana

Isn’t fear a funny thing ? That one emotion, that one complex sometimes overly complex emotion, which makes us act irrationally which restricts us which freezes us why do we feel it? In this little piece I hope to discuss it by using my fear of driving as an example

I remember the feeling I was sitting with Noel Christopher who happened to be my driving instructor in the middle of a busy intersection lorries and various cars whizzing past, my hands getting left behind with the progress of my eyes. “Go” Noel exclaims, I drown it out, obscenities going through my mind. Eventually in this seemingly ending situation Noel takes control I rest my shaking feet on the floor absent of the pedals.

It is incidents like that which only prove to me I have a fear of driving. So the first step is admitting I have a problem like in any other field, but what about the origin? Well lets draw back and think about the night before my first driving lesson, curiously asking my mum about how the beast she and my father operated and it was now my turn to operated functioned. I admit I only received a mediocre introduction to the bite point and the clutch. The next day I anxiously wait for my driving instructor sent from a major prestigious (yeah right) BSM. I was greeted by a woman who is in her 40’s,curly blonde hair with a white summary dress to match the weather. With her cheery almost chirpy tone she put my mind at rest and assured me driving was easy but then an expected turning of the tables instilled fear in me such as expecting me to steer with no formal instruction and crashing into a lamppost and taking me on busy roads on my first lessons. Oh yes the fear of God is well instilled at this point. I then carry on lessons with such attempts as trying to maintain a 60 Mph on country road but doing 80Mph with no formal instruction.

Transferring to university was a fresh start and I meet another accomplished BSM instructor one who actually makes sure I drive safely and gives me proper instruction. Yet again progress was slow and gentle driving in suburban quaint neighbourhoods with plenty of greenery. However the fear of big roads was still instilled and I was conflicted with the realisation if I don’t make progress on the big roads I will never succeed in driving let alone my driving test. I lose contact with above instructor and get another one shortly summarized a speed demon who owns a sports model but nice guy regardless. Returning home I meet Noel.

Now before I explain my most current experiences with my most recent instructor Noel lets look at what some intellectual minds have deduced fear down to, simply put adrenaline which triggers fear presents you with a flight or fight response, the third alternative is to freeze up and play dead so you predator back in stone age times (you don’t think sabre tooth tigers and don’t exist anymore you should meet my boss/teacher/spouse someone would say) loses interest in you. That was the case with Noel combined with my other anxieties guaranteed an interesting experience,  however one of these times I blurted out to Noel “I was about to crash didn’t you see that?!” Noel being professional replied “it’s my livelihood I can’t crash, my car and potentially myself will be injured.” So it begs the question is my fear unfounded to an extent it is. I think about the times Noel saves my skin however I freeze up, so maybe the ultimate aim is to become a safe driver and not just the pink piece of plastic at the end.

I am currently a driving student with Noel Christopher. I would like to say I am very happy being a student with this gentleman. He is very professional and committed to the cause by ensuring students achieve a high standard of driving skill and proficiency.

I am in my early fifties, never driven before. However joining Noels school is the best thing I have done.  My goal is to pass this year.  With Noels guidance and my determination I aim to make this come true.

Once again many thanks

Yours sincerely

About Noel Christopher in numerology

In the real world, arithmancy is known as numerology. According to numerologists, everything in the world is dependent upon the mystical properties of numbers. These properties come from the numbers’ inherent vibration. Other new-age practitioners use the term vibration to describe beliefs in the power of items like crystals, gemstones, colors and essential oils.

As the theory goes, each number has a unique vibration, giving it certain properties. These properties can shed light onto a person’s behavior or predict whether romantic partners are compatible. Read more

Noel I think you’re biggest strength is staying positive even when things may look bleak, and always finding the positive in the negative things that may happen. This also links into your notion of subjective thinking and how you are always looking forward, I believe this is your biggest strength

Feedback from Umid Boltayer for East Ham Driving School
Hi, I have recently had the assessment driving test with Noel Christopher
and I would like to comment on it for those who are looking for a highly graded instructors.
On the day of assessment after the introduction I begun driving slowly  to show the way I thought to be driving. So the instructor thoroughly was marking all the points that i missed  was explaining to me that not only driving is to be learned to pass the test, there is also attitude towards other drivers and pedestrians must be merged together.After this all I really had a good impression of him and I hope that  I will catch all his teachings.
I am going to book more lessons with him after being confident and I strongly recommend to those who are really looking a right instructors.many thanks

I approached Noel looking for driving lessons after having failed 3 times.

At first I was unsure because of his relatively high prices in comparison to other driving schools. He did not try to convince me and just let me decide on my own which was very kind and yet he was surprisingly not as insistent as others.

I had a chance to read his website at www.Ldriver.co.uk which explained that he was a grade 6 driving instructor and he also provided spiritual guidance for free. I understood then that the price he had stated was very little for the services he would provide.

We had our first lesson and it was amazing, his way of teaching really suited me. He did not teach in a mechanical sort of way but almost in a logical manner. He shared his interest in self development and provided me with an array of audio books to keep me performing well in my driving lessons and in my work. As I was running a gardening business that meant that I had to be full of spirit all the time.

What I really liked was that he looked at the way I drove a car and then decided what the best way was to teach me.

He did not have a book or a guide that he would expect me to follow. For instance, everyone is expected to follow the same curriculum in school but each person is an individual and should be given the time and effort to progress through a customised teaching plan. Unfortunately that is not always possible, however with Noel, this became a reality and for that I am very thankful.

I had my driving test on Friday 13th, not known as a very lucky day, although it didn’t affect me in the slightest because I was confident from the experience that I had gained while learning with Noel. However, I must admit I was very nervous because I did not think I was ready but Noel believed in me.

He gave me a tip which clearly set him apart from the other driving schools. He told me to say that the driving examiner was my friend and to imagine that I already had my license which I did before I went to sleep and when I woke up. I was a little hesitant that it wouldn’t work but when I saw my examiner I did not feel nervous and I literally felt like he was my friend.

This was just one of the tips that he has given me throughout my driving lessons. This, in turn, allowed me to become a great driver during the test and gave me the confidence to be able to drive independently.

Liling

Hi Noel,

Thank you for giving me my very first driving lesson.

I am very happy with my first lesson with you. I think you are patient and can make very clear explanation about how the clutch/gear system works to get the car going, which helped new drivers to not just memorise the procedures but understand why we are following these procedures .

The atmosphere is reasonably relaxed, which is good. In addition, each time you want to move on to the next topic , you ask me to review the things I just learnt and explain what I am going to learn next, which is good since it makes the whole process easier for me to follow.

Have a good day and look forward to my next lesson.

Regards,
Liling ( Laurel)

Kwesi feedback – South Ockendon

Kwesi feedback for Ockendon Driving School after completing, how to approach roundabouts.

Hello Noel,
How are you doing? Hope you having a good week?
Just wanted to give you a quick briefing on my driving experience with you so far.
I feel a bit more in control than previously lessons with other instructors. Am now doing things in a less mechanical way.
I feel more relaxed as well and not in a hurry to end the lesson as with other instructors.
I will work hard with the roundabouts and try and get that out of the way. Secret is to slow down in time and count the exits.
Have a good week and see you on Saturday.

Kind regards,
Kwesi

Valon Rastelica Testimonial

Driving with Noel has been an amazing experience. Right from the first lesson I had with him I could see how experienced he was and that he has been doing this successfully for years.

I always felt relaxed and calm when driving with Noel because he was really patient and kind and whenever I made a fault he would explain it to me in a way I could understand easily. This helped me improve exceptionally as a driver and allowed me to pass my test confidently first time with Noel.

I highly recommend Noel if you are looking for a pleasant and enjoyable driving experience.

I would like to thank you Noel for your fantastic tuition and everything else, and wish you all the best in the future.

Andrew Preston Testimonial

Andrew Preston

Andrew Preston

I’d like to make some positive comments about my driving instructor Noel Christopher. Prior to Noel, I had two different instructors and the difference between them is immense.

First and foremost, Noel is  reliable, honest and professional in every aspect. This includes, timekeeping, behavior and attitude.

He has a great amount of knowledge and know-how, and taught me with patience and good technique in all the  aspects of driving which enabled me to get to pass standard.

He is a grade 6 instructor and you should not waste your time with anything less than that. As result, You can notice your progress week by week.

His characteristics of patience and understanding make you feel at ease as you learn, and his method of teaching feels correct and safe. They also match any reading material you have, as the techniques correspond to the professional level in any DSA books.

In addition,  sometimes people have obstacles they need to overcome before they can make progress.  If you do have any psychological  aspects that are holding you back, Noel has various recommended books. These can help you understand and overcome hindrances that stop your development. For example, with me, it was FEAR.

I have learnt that there’s no easy route to passing, but learning to drive safely and confidently is essential and  Noel helped me understand this.

As mentioned earlier there are other instructors that won’t do this and you’ll find you’ve spent a lot of money and made no progress. so really, the best way to give yourself the best chance is to take driving lessons with Noel and you’ll notice you’ll be on your way to passing.

Andrew Preston/ passed 02/05/2013

Thank you Andrew Preston for your wonderful feedback, it was a great joy helping you to achieve your long term desire in becoming a fully qualified driver.

Driving instructor Noel Christopher. “I was so glad you bought the book and applied it in your life ( Psycho – Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz). I have to say Andrew, it did change my view’s of others and how to use it for my own practical application in becoming a better driving instructor to understand people and how the world works.

Hope your profession as a web Art work designer will bring lots of money.

Please keep it touch and the very best in the future.

Natalie feedback

Feedback for Grays driving instructor Noel Christopher

I was googling local driving schools in Grays, Essex when I same across Noel driving schools website.

I was drawn to this site because the lay out and the wording in the site seemed more personal. I called and spoke to Noel himself who booked me in for my refresher lesson the following week.
My lesson went really well. Noel arrived to collect me on time and explained at the start what area and techniques we could cover for the duration of the lesson. Not only did he explain why the techniques must be done but he gave real examples and situations in which I could apply them.

He was so patient and he made me feel so comfortable behind the wheel. I ended my lesson with more confidence than I had ever had. I am so looking forward to my next refresher lesson where we will be driving along country lanes and highways.

I would definitely recommend Noel driving school to friends and family.

Best wishes,
Natalie

My overall experience was really great with Noel Driving School.

In very short time he taught me everything that I needed to pass the test. Although I failed my first test but it was mostly I was nervous and the examiner wasn’t very friendly. After I failed, we have done couple or more lessons he taught  me how to correct my  mistakes. And today I passed my test.

Thank you very much for your patient Mr Noel. You have really been a great teacher.

Robert Bish Testimonial

To all who reads my testimonial.

Robert

Robert Bish

So what can I say, first of all I’m not the easiest of people to get along with, as I’m not one for being told or corrected what to do, even thou its for my benefit.

Starting my driving lesson with Noel Christopher driving school was very hard for me as i had previous driving experience, so being corrected was very frustrating and as a result of this i failed my first test.

Returning home on that day Noel gave me something to think about. So i gave
myself a week before phoning Noel back, with a complete reverse
attitude and as a result i passed my second test with just three
minors on this day 26/3/13.

I would like to thank you Noel cause your ability to teach, stay calm, wisdom and experience is 100% and you believe in your tutors which gives you so much more then any driving school out there on the market.

So all the best Noel to you and your
family with all my heart Robert Bish of Dagenham .

Subhankar Mitra Feedback

Subhankar is an experience driver from abroad. He got in touch with me through one of my past student, Naresh Bansal – Noel Driving School – www.ldriver.co.uk

Hi Noel,

I guess at the end of last lesson you asked me to give a feedback and also list down what was learnt.

I liked the first lesson because it was aimed at testing my current skills and I was happy with your way of assessment. I am looking forward to more lessons from you.

Now what I learnt from the first lesson:

  1. Take a complete 5-point (including blind spots) look when moving out from a parked position.
  2. Before entering a “give-way” junction, stop and look before entering the junction.
  3. At roundabouts I should always use 2nd gear and look for vehicles coming from right.
  4. Always lift the foot completely off the clutch.
  5. Either hand-brake or foot-brake must be engaged at signals.
  6. Must be more observant.

Thanks,
Subhankar.

Mobile Phone – Handy Emergency Information

THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO !!

Mobile Phone

Mobile Phone

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.
Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.
Check out the things that you can do with it:

  • Emergency :

The Emergency Number worldwide for all Mobile Phones is 112.

If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and your mobile will search any existing network in your area to establish the emergency number for you, and, interestingly, this number 112 can be dialled even if the keypad is locked.

This works on all phones worldwide and is free.
It is the equivalent of 000.

  • Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry?
This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at  home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.
Distance is no object. You could be thousands of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other ‘remote’ for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

  • Hidden Battery Power

To activate, press the keys *3370# (remember the asterisk).

Do this when the phone is almost dead.
Your mobile will restart in a special way with this new reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery life.
This reserve will get re charged when you charge your mobile next time.

This secret is in the fine print in most phone manuals.
Most people however skip this information without realising.

  • How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits on your  phone: * # 0 6 #

Ensure you put an asterisk BEFORE the #06# sequence.

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset.
Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. If your phone ever get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code.
They will then be able to block your handset, so, even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.
You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use or sell it either.
If everybody done this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
This secret is also in the fine print of most mobile phone manuals.  It was created for the very purpose of trying to prevent phones from being stolen.

EXTRA SOMETHING WHICH IS GOOD TO KNOW!

  • ATM   PIN Number Reversal

If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse.
For example, if your pin number is 1234, then you would put in 4321.
The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine.
The machine will still give you the money you requested, but, unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to the location.

All ATM’s carry this emergency sequencer by law.

Rajkannan Ramji Testimonial

Driving test testimonial from Raykannan Ramji

Rajkannan

Rajkannan

“I’m Raj, working as an Account Manager in London. Thanks to Noel, Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Honestly he gave me everything I needed to pass. It’s incredible that I got the same route as my test route where I learned my lessons. Though I had a very few lessons with him, I learned not only the skills of driving but also lessons for life. Noel helped me to plan and implement them through vision. I felt extremely comfortable thought my classes. I was taking lessons previously with a different driving school and changing to NOEL proved to be a great decision. He gave me the confidence and THE SECRET to life during all his lessons and the vision before my test that I will definitely pass. I will highly recommend him.”

Regards
Raj

The driving instructor of East Ham. Thank you Rajkannan for being my student and it was a great pleasure teaching you to prepare for the big day. Congratulation in passing the driving test in Barking with only 2 minor fault.

Raj you always had the skill in you, but it was not directed in a manner which you can consciously implement at will. All I did was to teach you how to use the power of thought and visualisation to over-come FEAR.

Drive safe now and always remember, ‘you are the creation of love and the substance of your creator.’

Kandy Kinchin passed 1st Time in Goodmayes

Kandy Kinchin, passed her driving test the first time in Goodmayes. She was learning to drive in East Ham, Barking, Ilford, Goodmayes and Dagenham which are some of the test routes for Goodmayes DSA test center

 

I would firstly like to say a huge thank you to Noel for helping me to pass my test first time. I was very nervous when taking driving lessons, however Noel always gave me the encouragement I needed to settle my nerves. Not only did Noel teach me how to drive and become confident in my abilities he also taught me how to control my nerves and help me to change the way I think about situations.

I was originally going to take my driving test a few months ago; however Noel suggested I waited as he did not believe I was quite ready. I am so glad I followed Noel’s advice as I have now passed first time.

Noel has always made me feel so comfortable on my driving lessons, each step is always fully explained and any areas in which I was weak on, Noel helped me to overcome my fears and to see anything I was afraid of as a challenge.

If I know of anyone who wants to learn to drive I would definitely recommend Noel. Thank you once again for all your patience and guidance.

Frances from Dagenham

Feedback from Frances. Mrs Frances got in touch with me via my Website – www.dagenham-drivingschool.co.uk. as she is from Dagenham Essex. This feedback was on paper written format.

Just had my introductory driving lesson with Noel driving school as a new driver without any experience. Noel taught me the basics and advanced techniques to drive, can’t forget the hints he gave me which I should always have in mind once I enter a car, P-O-M (Preparation – Observation –Manoeuvre)

From my observation, he’s very patient instructor that’s ready to correct mistakes over an over again in a friendly way that made me calm and relaxed. He’s very observant, quick in pointing out errors. So that you do not repeat the mistakes. Noel as my instructor made me feel comfortable from day one.

The master Key by Charles Haanel

Ingredients to Pass your driving Test

A proven concept is the ‘Triangle of Success’, representing the three success ingredients:

  • Knowledge

    Success to passing the driving test

    Success to passing the driving test

  • Skills
  • Attitude

The magic triangle

So which success ingredient is more important? Even though it’s difficult to generalise, in the working environment or learning to drive, the stress is more on ‘attitude’, with the belief that ‘knowledge’ and ‘skills’ require for the job can be imparted. However, in general, the triangle of success is equal, affirming that all three aspect are important.

Knowledge: In an academic environment, knowledge represents the core curriculum, irrespective of the course. In learning to drive a  more comprehensive knowledge is included such as;

  • the basic working knowledge of a car
  • why and when to use the car controls
  • the highway code
  • books on how to drive a car
  • DSA driving test standard
  • Human behaviors on the road

So knowledge can be said to be the foundation for success.

Skills: Our education system focuses on imparting knowledge for career and not on essential skills. This is were learning to drive become so exciting as we are learning to use very basic natural skills like hands and eyes coordination. Learning to drive we use most of our or all the six senses to stay safe on today’s busy fast moving environment.

So it’s important to take enough driving lessons behind the wheel. The DSA recommends the minimum hours ‘age x 2 + personal tuition’. Learning with a GRADE 6 or GRADE 5 driving instructors can be fun and rewarding. Remember “Good driving skills can only be transferred from skillful trainers”.

Attitude: While knowledge and skills are essential, they are not adequate for success, A study attributed to Harvard University found that people are employed, 85% per cent of the time because of their attitudes, and only 15% per cent of the time because of how smart they are and how many figures they know.  Did you know 100 per cent of education money goes into teaching facts and figures and not about attitude? Well in learning to drive, having Knowledge and skills are only the beginning of a life time skills that you will ‘never master’, but attitude can be easily learnt with an good driving instructor like Noel Christopher Grade 6. This is why so many learner driver take they driving test test and fail on not giving way or observation at junctions.

Attitude includes key aspects like;

  • honesty
  • integrity
  • self-confidence
  • cooperative attitude
  • the mind set

So learning is a continuous process. This is why learning to drive can never be mastered.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”.

HERE AT THE NOEL DRIVING SCHOOL WE UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF UPDATING NEW CONCEPT AND TECHNOLOGIES SO YOU THE LEARNER WILL BE INFORMED.

Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill

Where do you think you will be career-wise after a decade, as compared to your fellow workers or friends? Do you think only top-ranking students become successful in life?

What do you feel might happen to that classmates or friends of yours who is the butt of jokes and ridicule?

If you believe only academic brilliance leads to success, you must re-validate your opinion; or read books such as, THINK AND GROW RICH BY NAPOLEN HILL, which is the summation of hundreds of success stories.

The strategy used by many successful people in all walk of life are using the principles of Think and become successful, it also can be used for your driving lessons to pass the driving test the first time. The key words are Burning DesireMotivationsAction. When people have burning desires like passing the driving test the first, have done so. When you have burning desires you will take action, this is the universal  law which leads to success.

How do you know when you have that burning desire, well you will beginning to visualize or dream about it most of the time.

Visualization is a very powerful tool to learn when learning to drive. I have found it can over ride fear among many of my students who have difficulty dealing with junctions and roundabouts.

Grade 6 Driving Instructor Noel Christopher for East London and Essex will show you how to use the power of believe to overcome your limits.

Student testimonialI would like to share with all of you my experience of learning to drive in the East London with the Noel’s driving school.

The choice of instructors is abundant out there, yet it is luck and a word of mouth that help “Learners” to choose the right teacher.

Starting from February, I have began to learn driving under a strict supervision of Noel. It may seem that 4 months of dedicated efforts is a long time to learn driving, however, to be able to drive a car on the streets of London requires a good level of preparation and dedication to acquire the required set of skills.

We need a good guidance in areas that we lack knowledge or practice. A combination of technical and social skills, devotion to his work and therefore students, make Noel one the best driving instructors available on the market.

If you are weighing up the options of who to choose from a list, I would not hesitate a moment, but recommend to opt for Noel. His professional and dedicated approach to work, highly developed social skills make him a real asset to the new comer !

Umi of Barking Feedback

The driving instructor: “This feedback is from Umi. Umi got in-touch with me after searching for a good grade 6 driving instructor in Barking. Umi was learning with one of her family members who is also an driving instructor (ADI). She is a great listener and willing to make changes now, Her main goal is now, to pass her driving test as soon as possible. So she may go here and everywhere and not relaying on her family free transport services. From what I can see, Umi is practices the art of visualisation to learn in an efficient manner. Well done Umi, keep it up.”

Hi Noel,

I would just like to say that you are a brilliant instructor, after only having two lessons.. You have given me great confidence and made me eager to learn more..

During the first lesson I had with you I was very nervous but you made me comfortable and I realised that generally you are great to talk too but during the lesson you seem very strongly fixated on your job role .. You stay focused and give the learner their moneys worth by making sure you teach them great knowledge and awareness of every aspect ..

My second lesson with you was very good and has boosted my confidence greatly .. I learnt so much from you in only two lessons and I am confident in saying that I know that without a doubt you will have me pass in no time..you are BLESSED with great teaching techniques.. Patience.. Reassurance and knowledge and understanding .. To help me become a safe good confident driver!!

Thank you very much.. Im glad I have a great teacher..See you next lesson!

Umi
