Sam Sharp Passed first time with Jon with 5 minors after failing the previous 2 times with a different instructor. Jon gave me the extra guidance I needed to pass and I would recommend Jon to anyone that is learning to drive.

Doug PatersonIt has been a great experience learning to drive with Jon; he taught me how to become a safe and confident driver rather than just preparing me for the driving test (which he also did excellently!). His structured approach to teaching allowed me to progress quickly; it was amazing how quickly I felt confident behind the wheel. Ultimately though, the best part about learning through Jon was how personalised it felt: he allowed me improve in the areas I knew I needed to most. A million thank yous Jon and I wish you all the best

He made sure that I progressed each time and allowed me to feel calm and ready for my test with the structured and consistent approach to learning.

Laura WattsJohns a great driving instructor, I had previously failed twice with a different instructor and only needed 5 lessons with John to pass with 4 minors . Used to find it really difficult to parallel park but if you follow johns method you really can’t mess it up! John is very calm and relaxed and makes you feel like a confident driver – even when you burst one of his tyres! Sorry John!

Jon is a very clear driving instructor and his lessons are very well-structured. Learning to drive from scratch, I definitely felt like I was progressing with every lesson. When I failed my first practical test, Jon was very supportive and was able to provide focused tuition on my weaker areas, to help me pass second time around. I would definitely recommend Jon to anyone learning to drive.

Passed 2nd time with 1 driving fault
Jon was an excellent teacher. When I started lessons with him I’d had some lessons previously but didn’t feel at all in control behind the wheel. That quickly changed with Jon – he provided a very structured and consistent approach to learning and was very good at identifying the areas I needed to work on. I soon felt much more confident and with Jon’s support and patience passed second time with only one driving fault. Thanks a lot Jon!

Tommy

Passed 2nd time with 7 driving faults
I couldn’t have hoped for a better teacher, Jon is very friendly, constantly supportive and encouraging yet eager to challenge you and make constant progress. With each lesson I improved some aspect of my driving, when I found something difficult he was patient, and when I made mistakes he helped me learn from them and turn them into a positive. I feel I’ve been given a very high standard of tuition and am now equipped to be a safe driver. The LDC system is fantastic too, I would recommend Jon to anyone wishing to learn to drive.

Safiano-Zakari

Passed 1st time with 11 driving faults
I had a number of lessons with another instructor but felt I wasn’t really making any progress. So I decided to switch to LDC and did a mid way pass course of 20 hours with Jon. Jon taught me to be a better driver and with his help I passed first time.

Safiano Zakari
Marcus-Street

Passed 1st time with 8 driving faults
I recommend Jon as a brilliant instructor. Jon is friendly, easy to get along with and willing to work around work as well as giving you the best teaching and advice to pass your test. Also the LDC equipment given to pass both my theory and practical tests were really helpful. However, I really enjoyed my lessons with Jon. Without his help I would have not passed first time. Thankyou for everything Jon

Stuart-Pearce

Passed 2nd time with 1 driving fault
Jon was very patient with me and helped me to become a safer more controlled driver. After failing my first test he evaluated the reasons why and allowed me to focus on these. I passed the next time with only one fault which is down to Jon’s teaching.

Stuart Pearce
George-Bearpark

Passed 1st time with 11 driving faults
I am most grateful to Jon for teaching me and could not recommend him and LDC enough. He boosted my confidence and ability in driving at a remarkable rate. Thanks to him, I passed first time!

George Bearpark

Passed 1st time with 4 driving faults.
I learned to drive with Jon using the LDC Intensive course which packs all the usual lessons into just 1 week. The scheduled 5 hours of driving a day was very tiring but Jon is very friendly and he changed the schedule to help me get a better break over lunchtime. The LDC book and DVD were very useful as I went through the entire course before I got in the car with Jon so I knew what to expect. I still can’t believe that a week ago I couldn’t drive and now I have a full license! All credit to Jon for getting me through in such a short timescale.

I failed my first test after lessons from another instructor and then took a test booster course from Jon, and passed my next test with 6 driving faults. I would recommend him to anyone and I would not have passed, without him!
