Rachel Clayton ( Passed test July 2017 )
Thank you so so much for everything John! Couldnt of done it without you! Best instructor there is thanks for all your patience
“I would highly recommend John as a driving instructor. After driving in my own car for almost a year (with supervision) I had picked up a few bad habits which I was keen to get rid of before my test. John was incredibly helpful and I became a much calmer driver under his instruction. He was also very knowledgable when it came to the test routes, which was particularly useful as I didn’t know Salford especially well. I was incredibly pleased with my test result – a pass with no faults! I cannot thank you enough, John!”
Heather Scott ( Passed Test June 2017 )
Highly recommend JDS driving lessons. John was a patient and informative instructor who was great at highlighting and working on where I needed to improve as well as building my confidence behind the wheel. He was excellent at working my lessons in around my working hours. If you’re learning to drive, I couldn’t recommend John more.
Sean Stoakes ( Passed test June 2017 )

I cannot thank you enough john! I passed both my theory and practical first time thanks to your help. You always had the confidence in me when i doubted myself. when i was getting near to my practical test and my nerves was through the roof, he calmed me down and offered to do a mock test with him so i could prepare myself for the actual test, this helped me out so much! not many instructors out there that you can have a laugh with, I was always excited for the next lesson. highly recommended.
Sam Smith ( Passed test May 2017 )

John was a very supportive and patient instructor who offered me help and support throughout . I failed my theory several times but John never critized or made me feel hopeless , he gave me the confidence to ‘re sit and after passing we put in for my practical and I passed 1st time . With college and work I couldn’t commit to the same time each week but John was able to jig his times and always manage to fit me in . Because of John I’m picking up my 1st car today and so I have more freedom and independency …. Thanks John

Jack Williams ( Passed November 2016 )
Lyndsey Davidson ( Passed test November 2016 )
“John is a fantastic driving instructor. As a previous victim of a fraudulent instructor who undermined my confidence as a driver as part of his trick, I was fairly nervous. When I met John I asked him to treat me as a complete beginner. After a couple of lessons John told me to book my test. Within a couple of months I had passed. John helped me overcome this past event and become a good driver. I had previously passed my theory test but it was due to run out as it had almost been two years. John encouraged me to book my practical test which I passed first time, saving me a great deal of money and effort. John really knows his stuff and I can’t recommend him enough.”
George Waterhouse ( Passed test October 2016 )
I couldn’t have wished for a better instructor! John is patient and explains mistakes so you understand how to correct them. He’s flexible, reliable and puts you at ease from the second you get in the car, encouraging you if you ever feel like it’s not going right. From theory to manoeuvres, he teaches you everything you need to know in plenty of time for your test leaving you well prepared. I will definitely recommend! Thank you!
Nathan Wakefield ( Passed October 2016 )
“John is a very good driving instructor, who’s very patient and understanding when you make mistakes. He’s very good at building up confidence behind the wheel and will always make you feel well prepared before the test. There is no better instructor out there!”

John is a great driving instructor. He is very patient, friendly, reliable, and puts you at ease if you’re feeling stressed or nervous. He explains things really well and is a very good teacher.

Couldn’t have asked for a more patient, understanding or friendlier instructor! Looked forward to every lesson and John encouraged and taught in such a way that made learning to drive enjoyable!

John is a patient and encouraging instructor who helped develop me as a driver from the ground up, recognising my strengths and flaws early and working with me to improve them both step by step. Extremely personable and with a breadth of knowledge for all aspects of driving, he guided me to attaining a first time pass. I cannot recommend him enough.

Thanks John for getting me through learning to drive, and keeping me motivated and determined to pass! John is an excellent, patient instructor, with a calm and friendly manner. He puts you at ease as soon as you get in the car and explains things clearly, so that you have a true understanding of different concepts. I was driving home on the East Lancs on my first ever lesson! John ensures that he focuses on areas of weakness that have been identified in previous lessons, and teaches the manouevres in a clear, structured way. I would highly recommend him to anyone learning to drive – brilliant! Thanks again John! 🙂 🙂

John is a fantastic instructor who will guide you to becoming a safe and conscientious driver. I enjoyed learning with John as he would tailor lessons to improve on my weak spots and any grey areas I encountered whilst learning. I never felt pressured or too far out of my comfort zone behind the wheel and I now feel confident to take on any road safely. I’d recommend John to all of my friends and I’m grateful for the times he needed to change his schedule to suit me!

Chris Fleming ( Passed April 2016 )
After shopping around for driving instructors for a good while I stumbled upon John’s facebook page and saw nothing but good reviews, and he did not disappoint. He is so patient and put me very at ease, allowing me to go from a nervous driver with no experience at all on my first lesson, to developing a high standard of driving that allowed me to pass my test first time. Would recommend him to anyone, thank you John! 🙂
Charlotte Searle ( Passed March 2016 )
John is a patient and brilliant instructor. I always felt relaxed whilst driving and I learnt a lot on every lesson. Wouldn’t of passed as fast with anyone else. Highly recommend to anyone.
Tom Hamblin ( Passed March 2016 )
Thank you John for everything! For all the people out there thinking about taking any lessons I strongly recommend him. I started having lessons with one of those big companies, but after lots of money and time wasted I couldn’t see any progress in my driving, so I decided to look somewhere else. John was just what I needed. No wasted time at all, every second of the time you pay, you are behind the wheel practicing. He is friendly but straight to the point and a great instructor. His priority is to get his students to pass the test and you can tell. He has loads of experience and is great at preparing you for the day. I went to the test feeling confident and aware of everything I needed to look out for thanks to his guidance. Now I am over the moon I passed!!!!
Paloma Villavicencio Todd ( Passed Febuary 2016 )
‘John is amazing instructor and has taught me a lot and built my confidence with driving throughout the year I taught with him, he is very calm and reassuring and is great with people who are nervous with tests as myself and can always work around yourself and manages to fit you in all the time, thanks John!.’
Candice Fawcett ( Passed January 2016 )
Learning to drive with JDS driving school is one of the best choices I have ever made, from the moment I begun my lessons John made me feel very comfortable and was very supportive. I felt like he understood my learning style and was very adaptable to my nerves which helped me pass my test. He helped me overcome areas I didn’t feel comfortable with very quickly and had me driving well in no time at all. I have recommended john to family and friend as would to anyone thinking of doing their lessons. If you are looking for an experienced driving instructor then JDS driving school is the one to choose.
Toni Shelvey ( Passed January 2016 )

I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for an instructor. He is so patient and encouraging and has a great way of making you feel totally at ease in the car. I’m so thankful I found John as I had massively lost confidence in my driving after previously failing. He explains everything so well, lets you know if something isn’t quite right and is full of praise if you do something good. Thanks John!!!!!!
Kirsty Dawson ( Passed Test November 2015 )
Thank you so much John! You have been the best teacher/instructor (in any subject) that I have ever had. You explained everything in simple detail and made sure I understood it. You are extremely friendly, really patient, very helpful and you pushed me to achieve much higher than my best… I found myself looking forwards to my lessons every week just to get back in that car and have a great time talking and laughing! You listened to me and took an interest in what was happening in my life at the time. You always knew what to say to make me either laugh or direct me in a positive way… I will miss your hilarious one liners and all the other jokes. Thank you again for everything! –
Jools Hope ( Passed test October 2015 )
“John is a fantastic driving instructor. Patient, friendly and calm he put me at ease from my first lesson. I came back to driving having failed my first test 3 years ago and never driven since. With John I passed my test in just a few months which I never thought would be possible. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great instructor. Thank you John!”
Rachel Morley ( Passed October 2015 )
