Instructor bio

Hi, my name is John. I have been a driving instructor since 2009 and I really enjoy what I do. Prior to this role, I held a number of managerial positions within retail stores. Working for some of the larger companies enabled me to gain extensive experience and training in how to best manage people. I also developed a strong customer service focus. These skills come in handy everyday when I am teaching learners. My ability to relate to others, communicate clearly and effectively, adjust my techniques based on the learner as well as set goals and targets helps to get the best results. I am a highly skilled driver and I instruct in both automatic and manual vehicles. I am friendly, patient and calm. My goal is to build your confidence, develop your coordination and teach you all the techniques to become a safe driver. I am passionate about what I do.

Reviews

Absolutely brilliant! As someone who needed a refresher and proper teaching of how to do manoeuvres and other aspects, Jon was perfect. He simplifies everything to allow you to focus on what really matters and makes learning to drive easier. I went into the test feeling confident and calm about my abilities and what he's taught me. Definitely would recommend for people who need a refresher of their road skills or just starting out 👍.

I made the right decision in booking John for my lessons. He was the best instructor. I am quite an anxious driver and John was just perfect because he was so calm and relax. It really helped me become more relaxed when driving. His teaching skills are superb! I recommend him 5 stars. Thanks again John for being very professional. Plus points because your car is always tidy and clean. I wish you all the best!

I only had John once because I wasn't able to book my usual instructor at the time but I can not recommend him more. Calm, friendly, and confident would be the best ways I could describe him. Have already recommended him to a friend.

He taught me how to parallel park, uturn and 3 point turn. We rode through main roads with light traffic and he shared important tips on clutch control and got me into the habit of using the handbrake which I found very helpful for hill starts and general red light stops. Overall, had a good experience.

Devesh

I learnt more from John in 1 hour than I did in 10+ lessons with another driving school. Great communication, I always felt comfortable and calm Thank you so much for successfully teaching me to drive!
