Band 7 IELTS letter sample

Dear Daniel,

I am glad to hear that you have finally decided to learn driving. I know you are nervous but don’t worry. It is not that difficult. Anyway, to put your mind at ease, I will give you some support and tips.

Learning to drive will definitely help you in many ways. Once you pass the driving test, you will get the license which enables you to drive on the highways. You know what, it makes you independent as you can go to any place at any time convenient to you. Also, a driving license is an identity proof.

I recommend that you join John’s driving school as they are good at training and very particular about ensuring that you practice a lot before you go for the actual driving test. They have facilities to get all your paper works done so that you only need to concentrate on your driving. You can register at the school and if you mention my name you will get a 10% discount.

If you need any other help, feel free to call me whenever you want.

All the best!
