I had a such a great time learning to drive with John, I had no confidence in myself and he always boosted it up, the day i past my test was the best feeling and that was all thinks to him, i would defo recommend learning to drive with John.
A good driving instructor isn't just about teaching you to pass the test but about making you a good driver and preparing you for all sorts of hazards and situations. John is the man for this. Not only does he make a confident driver out of someone with massive test fears (like me) but makes each lesson fun, full of learning and building on confidence. He was full of reassurance and came up with many helpful ways to get my head around those roundabouts! And bundles of patience to deal with some of my occasional daft question moments too! Great sense of humour, and his accents made our lessons so enjoyable and fun! He is keen to know you as a person which makes the whole experience more personal and unique. I see him as a friend as well as an instructor in our lessons. Thank you John, you have been brilliant. See you on the road!
Great instructor so friendly and easy too talk to and knows exactly what he's doing, i started driving with no experience and was ready for my test much quicker than I thought I would be, would recommend john to anyone great instructor.
I passed today! Third time lucky, but the first two times were all down to my own nerves! John is a great teacher, very patient and he really helped after I'd suffered from a bad teacher before him! Still getting round to the idea I can actually drive on my own! Thank you John!
What can I say about John-at Fit2drive, he is very patient, and has really calm manner about him, which if you are looking for a driving instructor is exactly what you need! I took up driving again after a 20+ year gap, was quite nervous and had a previous experience when I was 17 which wasn’t good,(not a great instructor).John is really friendly which helps put you at ease ,he always has the radio on and that too was good at keeping me calm. After a few weeks it was more like driving with a good friend and I will miss our random chats on the way to bury about anything and everything lol! We went to bury for lessons, and I always drove there and back, which was great practice, and when you’ve had a few lessons this helps with your confidence building. I learnt something new every week, and this was a great way to learn, because if you don’t get a manoeuvre first time you do a different one another week and when you go back to the other one you find you can do it after all! This happened to me anyway, everyone’s experience is different of course, but this helped me not to get too frustrated with myself. I mostly booked block lessons of 10 hours and thought that these were good value for money. I passed my test in October this year, I couldn’t have done it without John and I mean that wholeheartedly. This has been a life –long goal for me and I now have achieved it with johns help and it feels amazing! I thoroughly recommend John if you are currently looking to take up lessons, you won’t be disappointed and with johns help you will pass your test, and be driving yourself about in no time!
John is a fantastic instructor. I found his lessons to contain a great balance of encouragement, patience and great teaching. I found that the way he structures his lessons makes them relaxing while still advancing in skills. His flexibility towards issues that you have while learning to drive makes them easy to overcome! John doesn't only teach you the essentials to pass the test but teaches you to be a good driver.
John is a great driving instructor! The approach he takes in his lessons are brilliant, he makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. John always likes to have a laugh in the lessons, which in my opinion helps with the learning process. The way John teaches is very clear and understandable, explaining everything calmly and if you don't understand something, he will always try to explain it in a way that you can. I passed first time and in a good amount of time. The value for money is amazing and you don't get encouraged to do more lessons than you need just for the extra money. I would recommend Fit2drive to anybody and I thank you John, you were brilliant
John at Fit2DriveUK is about the best that money can buy when it comes to driving instructors! And i can honestly say that whole heartedly. He takes you through step by step, calmly but quickly! My experience was very fun and enjoyable and a complete laugh! driving felt natural next to john and the usual stigma that came with the manoeuvres wasn't really there! I passed on the 1st of July 2016! first time!
Passed my driving test the first time, despite being so nervous and lacking self confidence and I can only put it down to John's excellent teaching and coaching! The lessons always had a light tone, but at the same time educating, I never felt anxious and always have been amazed how John never loses his cool, no matter how many or how silly the mistakes I made. The next day after passing my test I can truly drive on my own confidently and without worry that there is something I cannot deal with and is all due to the top marks teaching and advice I received during lessons. I would highly recommend!
I was a returning learner (after a 6-7 year gap of no lessons) and was really pleased at how welcoming and enthusiastic John was during my lessons.Without a doubt I can honestly say that John teaches you to be a BETTER driver than is needed to simply "pass your test" - this experience and level of insight in to driving made every lesson informative and fun, it was something I looked forward to every week.With John's method of teaching, I passed first time with a mere 5 minor faults!The Kia is a lovely car to drive, I will miss those huge wing mirrors!
I passed my driving test first time, just under a year ago, after being under the instruction of John at Fit2drive UK. I cannot thank John enough for the wonderful professionalism he showed throughout my course of lessons and the help and knowledge he provided me along the way. Not only did John teach me how to pass my test, he also taught me how drive allowing me to feel confident in facing the roads alone and perhaps coming across situations I had not yet had to deal with, after I had passed.
John, himself, is very friendly and makes a complete beginner feel at ease behind the wheel. The lessons were always structured and there wasn't a time I was made to feel 'stupid' if I struggled to grasp something. I highly recommend John (Fit2driveuk) to anyone looking for affordable prices, a driving instructor that is going to teach you how to drive confidently and competently, knowing that you will pass your test with the sufficient knowledge you need in order to be a safe driver.
Thank you again, John!
After having numerous driving instructors in the past, John by far tops the list.
An excellent driving instructor that not only teaches you for your test (like some others) but actually teaches you to drive in all aspects and areas.
If you're looking for an instructor that you can learn from with ease and someone you can have a laugh with whilst learning, then Fit2Drive is definitely for you. I passed with only 3 minors!
Having not had a particularly illustrious history when it came to driving tests (eight failures with a previous instructor), I was a little nervous starting to learn again after a decade of avoiding having to try.
John soon calmed me down with a friendly unflappable manner and an endless supply of patience for the inevitable daft incidents.
The car is nice to drive being quite boxy, you've got great visibility and headroom yet its really compact (so easy to park), much better than having to shoehorn yourself into a pokey supermini, even if it is a metallic olive green Kia.
I passed with only three minors, if he can get me to pass – he can teach anyone!
I started learning to drive with John in September 2015. I passed my test first time in April of this year. I could not have asked for a more friendly, understanding instructor. With having no experience at all in a car John made me feel comfortable and at ease from the very beginning. Explaining everything I needed to know and learn professionally, yet still making each lesson fun to have. I am so grateful for Johns patience and help in teaching me to drive. Highly recommended!!
