Amazing driving instructor. Super friendly and is always willing to push you to where you need to be. He is always acknowledgeable about your faults in driving, and is immediate at helping you to correct them. Would recommend John to anyone who is starting out with driving

Great driving instructor!I was a really nervous driver and it has taken me a long time to feel comfortable driving but john was always very patient and always made me feel safe in the car even when I was anxious. He was also very understanding, I’m dyslexic so I can struggle with directions and remembering things but john was aways patient and would explain things in a way I could understand and remember. I would recommend to anyone!

Just passed first time after being with John for the last few months. I can't recommend him enough, lessons tailored to my needs, and flexible around my college hours. I couldn't be more prepared for being on the road.

John helped my wife Susan through her test and was excellent throughout her lessons. She is a very competent driver for which John should take much of the credit.Thank you John for your help and guidance to a successful conclusion.Regards Colin and Susan Henderson
