After a long break from driving

I was feeling nervous about being behind the wheel once again. John created a relaxed, patient environment and helped me to rediscover my confidence on the road. Would recommend him to anyone.

John is a fabulous instructor

… who is very patient but very easy to get along with and have a laugh with. His way of teaching feels like you’re in the car with a friend, would definitely recommend to anyone.

Molly Turrell from Wolsingham.

John is dream instructor

He is very patient, extremely supportive, with a wonderful uplifting attitude and atmosphere in the car and he is great at explaining everything in a clear, concise way. Above all, he is a fabulous driver. Because of this, I feel he has helped me become a really good, responsible driver myself and I am ever so grateful for everything he has taught me. I highly recommend John Nicholson to any new learner or someone who just wishes to refresh their driving skills. He is really fantastic at his job!
