Renee Adams ( Passed January 2020 )
John were super supportive and motivational throughout my lessons. He really focuses on your not so strong points and works on them over and over until you feel confident, comfortable and ready. Overall, a really positive experience to driving and I can’t thank him enough for getting me through with a pass first time round!
Brogan Carroll ( Passed December 2019 )
Wouldn’t recommend anyone else to learn you how to drive really patient and explains everything very simply which helped me pass 1st time, thank you John
Mark Saunders ( Passed October 2019 )
Had driving lessons with a different instructor but didn’t feel like I was progressing so went with John and passed first time in such a short space of time. Couldn’t recommend enough!! Such a calm and friendly instructor! Thank you so much
I genuinely couldn’t think of anybody I’d rather have had as a teacher. John was calm and collected throughout the entirety of our lessons, and taught me in a way that worked fantastically for me. I can’t recommend him enough!
John was recommended to us and both daughters really enjoyed their lessons, was always put at ease and both passed first time!! Thanks so much John…best driving instructor ever!!
Mrs Hopkinson ( Eva Passed September 2019 )
John has been a fantastic instructor over the past few months. I passed first time with one fault! Very patient, friendly and a great mentor. Highly recommend to anyone.
Jennifer Fretwell ( Passed test August 2019 )
Would highly recommend as I passed first time with only 2 minors! John is a brilliant instructor and well relaxed & thanks to him I can now drive!
Connie Rea ( Passed test August 2019 )
I can not recommend John enough, he is my third driving instructor after stopping lessons when life got in the way. All I can say is get your lessons booked in with him, you won’t regret it. He’s patient, helps to work on your faults rather than making you feel bad about them, he goes at your pace, works to the way you want to work 1hour 1hr30 2hr lessons etc! So you can tailor your own driving schedule, he will give you the thumbs up when you can go in for your test and will go out of his way to make you feel comfortable. You’re in safe hands, and the huge bonus is, I passed first time!! Thank you John!!
Kayley McGowan ( Passed test June 2019 )
I was such a nervous driver before John and have had two driving instructors before him. However, with John from day one I felt at ease in his car and have learnt so much on how to be a better driver. Today I passed my driving test and I owe it all to him and his patience. I can’t recommend his services enough- the best driving instructor around.
Rene Mcintosh ( Passed test June 2019 )
I passed with John after him teaching me from the very start. I do not feel I would would have passed without having such a thorough and experienced driving instructor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about starting their driving lessons.
Ryan Hadfield ( Passed test May 2019 )
Great driving instructor! Very friendly and great to get along with. Highly recommended as I passed first time.
Krishan Patidar (Passed test April 2019 )
Fantastic instructor. Calm and helpful. Really helps you prepare well for the test. Highly recommend
Jonathon Riley (Passed test April 2019 )
I took lessons with another instructor in a different part of the country and had to stop pursuing driving. When I got back around to it, John was incredibly accommodating and very reassuring to drive with. He is patient with learners and confident on the road. He helped me to pass my practical test on my first attempt and I would recommend John to anyone I know.
Dominic Lawson ( Passed test April 2019 )
I would recommend John to anyone and everyone. He is patient, consistent and works quickly and efficiently – always on time and very flexible with lessons. My lessons were an absolute joy – having had a couple of previous instructors I haven’t always enjoyed driving lessons like I did with John. I can’t thank JDS enough for helping me to pass with a handful of minors! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Amy-Jane Ollies ( Passed test April 2019 )
Couldn’t recommend John highly enough! Fantastic driving instructor, patient, friendly, honest and very supportive. After failing numerous tests with previous instructors and losing my confidence, John took me under his wing and helped me pass with just 2 faults – I couldn’t be happier or more thankful! Thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with John and will be recommending him to everyone!
Jen Ward ( Passed April 2019 )
I was a beginner learner (to the point where I had never even sat in the drivers seat) and was very nervous about finally getting behind the wheel. From my first lesson John was extremely patient, he always explained everything thoroughly and clearly. Even if was unsure on something he was always positive and would go over it again until I understood. From my first lesson my confidence only grew and I always felt comfortable and in control of the car. I passed on my third test and even after two fails John ensured that we went over everything and never gave up on me. For anyone thinking about learning to drive I honestly couldn’t recommend a better, more reliable driving instructor. I can’t thank John enough for his time (and A LOT of patience) learning to drive has honestly been one of the best decisions I’ve made.
Leonie Brown ( Passed test March 2019 )
John has been a brilliant driving instructor! He’s been so accommodating to my schedule and always makes sure you get the full amount of time for your lessons. I’ve had two previous instructors and John’s teaching has been far more in depth, some instructors will teach you the bare minimum you need to pass but John teaches you how to be a good driver. Couldn’t recommend John enough, thank you so much! ?
Chloe Deakin ( Passed February 2019 )
Very good, experienced and patient driving instructor. Thanks to John I was well prepared for my test and passed first time. Flexible with lessons John’s always on time and I never had my driving cancelled.
Kat Popyk ( Passed January 2019 )
Literally couldn’t recommend John more!! Gone from knowing absolutely nothing about driving to passing my test 2nd time with 1 fault! So lucky to have had such an amazing instructor! He was always so patient, reassuring and supportive. John was very flexible when possible which meant I could do my lessons in between of work which was a great help. Such an amazing experience! Thank you for all the support and patience
Gosia Mickiewicz ( Passed January 2019 )
Thank you so much. If I know anyone within the area needed to learn to drive, you’ll be the first and only person I’d recommend. Patient, calm and lessons are extremely accessible.

Jennifer Roberts ( Passed test October 2018 )

Jack Hadfield ( Passed Test October 2018 )
Thanks john been a really good instructor the whole way
Sam Neil ( Passed Test September 2018 )
After passing my test in 1981 I never drove again, until personal and bereavement issues made me want to have another go. I feel so lucky that John was willing to take me on. I had no confidence (or skill!), but with John’s patience and understanding, as well as his wit and humour, I am becoming a driver. John has gone above and beyond what he needed to do to get me to where I am now. At the age of 58 I’ve just bought my first car, but even now I know that John is still there with help and advice if I need it. John, I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for me; you’ve changed my life.
Terry. ( Refresher Lessons September 2018 )

Carley Smith ( Passed Test August 2018 )
Thanks so much! John is an incredible teacher. I’m an easily distracted 35 year old woman with dismal spatial awareness, but he turned me into a safe and confident driver using his years of experience, extraordinary capacity for staying calm and hilarious jokes – as well as a good supply of tiny yellow stickers. I am going to be recommending him to everyone, so get in there quick!”
Leah Marks ( Passed Test July 2018 )
John is really patient and doesn’t make you feel nervous when you get in the car. He was very reliable and I would recommend him as a driving instructor.

Melissa Campbell ( Passed test November 2017 )
When I first started learning to drive I was so apprehensive and had already convinced myself I was going to fail. John has the patience of a saint and kept encouraging me every step of the way to a first time pass (something I never believed possible)!
John is a fantastic teacher and I can’t praise him enough. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Caroline Walkin ( Passed test October 2017 )
Would highly recommend John as a driving instructor. Totally amazing. To say I failed 4 test with a previous instructor and to change to John and pass 1st time speaks volumes.
He couldn’t be more helpful and more calming just want to say a massive thanks John for giving me a new lease of life will be forever thankful xx
Faye Atkinson ( Passed test October 2017 )

I honestly couldn’t recommend John highly enough. He’s a brilliant instructor, who is friendly and very easy to get along with. John was an incredibly patient and calming instructor, giving guidance where needed but also instilling a great deal of confidence.

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

Thank you John!! You really are the best teacher, thank you for being so patient with me and giving me confidence, i will definitely be recommending you!
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 )
Thank you so so much to John! He is an absolutely fantastic teacher who I would and will recommend to anyone. I’ve had two other driving instructors in the past but he is by far the best. He is patient and a great teacher who built my confidence massively. I can’t thank him enough!
Ayo Ogunshakin ( 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 )
Absolutely amazing instructor. All round lovely guy. A huge thank you for all you help and support. If your looking for a reliable 1st class instructor you won’t find better 🙂
“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 didn’t just teach me to drive, he explained the reasons behind things and this made learning much easier. Would recommend learning with John to anyone and everyone! Amazing teacher! Claire Pringle ( Passed June 2016 )
John was a great instructor who keeps you calm through out your lessons and through all situations that may occur. John also gets information over to you quick and effectively, he also try’s his best to fit you in when you want to book a lesson. John is extremely good at making sure you feel confident about your test.
Alex Ellis-Thornton. Passed- June 2016
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. Jack Worrall ( Passed June 2016 )
John is simply a fantastic instructor! He is very friendly, patient and supportive, and I can not recommend him highly enough.
Orry Verducci ( Passed May 2016 )
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! 🙂 🙂

Francesca Grenan ( Passed April 2016 )
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 )</em>
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 )
Couldn’t of asked for a better driving instructor! I don’t think I could have passed first time without John. He is patient, helpful, friendly and supportive. Would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks again John!!!!

Beth Dixon ( Passed Test November 2015 )
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.

John is a fantastic Driving Instructor. He often went the extra mile for me during my lessons. I struggle learning new skills but John was really supportive and gave me confidence in myself. It was a pleasure learning to drive with him and passing my test first time is my best achievement ever.

John. Wanted to send you my grateful thanks for teaching Jonnie to drive. You put him at ease from day one and passing his test was down to your great people skills. You were definitely the right man for the job. Will recommend you to everyone I can. Regards Sylvia Daniels
John was from the beginning a great instructor that not only helped me build in my driving skills but also my confidence. Able to fit in lessons around my busy schedule was important and he was always able to provide a suitable time for lesson. His knowledge, patience and experience make him an outstanding driving instructor, who I could not recommend enough. Thank you John! Bea Lavin Martin ( Passed Test May 2015 )
From the very first lesson John helped me gain the confidence that I’d lost from other instructors previously. I passed my driving test today because of his easy to remember techniques, patience and belief in me…. He’s the best!!” Pip Boyd ( Passed Test May 2015 )
As a learner John helped me build my confidence and was extremely patient on every lesson and very encouraging. I would 100% recommend him and can not fault him at all. I had a timescale of how long I wanted to pass and he helped me do that and I did first time with 4 faults. Excellent instructor!
Charlotte Smith ( Passed April 2015 )
I passed my driving test first time with john, I went with him after being recommended by my sister who also passed first time with him, he was a brilliant instructor as he made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times.

Kayleigh Kite ( Passed March 2015 )
Thanks so much to John for all his help in helping me pass today, I’d chosen John as my instructor after reading other testimonials, I’d failed my test twice previously and was beginning to lose heart.
John is a terrific instructor and instantly put me at ease. He explained everything in clear and concise instructions. When mistakes were made he explained what I needed to do to correct them. John was incredibly patient, never raising his voice and I cannot recommend him enough! Martin Sheehan ( Passed March 2015 )

Craig Smith ( Passed March 2015 )
I cannot recommend John enough – he was a great instructor and helped me to pass my test first time…a seemingly impossible task!
John was extremely patient and explained everything in a clear, simple and precise way and helped me to manage my nerves. When I began lessons with John I was very nervous (I had previously taken lessons with two other instructors and got nowhere) however I soon felt at ease and quickly began to show progress and grow in confidence.
I cannot thank John enough for all his help; it feels great to now be a qualified driver after having put off lessons for nearly 10 years…thank you John! Kirsty Doyle ( Passed February 2015 )
Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, so patient and supportive and makes you feel so confident. Passed first time and never thought I would. Anna Ciekanska. ( Passed January 2015 )
Was an absolute pleasure having John as my instructor. Very reliable and flexible with dates and times. Good prices compared to more well known big driving schools. John was very patient and very easy going and explains everything in terms that are easy to understand and helps makes the whole nervous process much more comfortable. The emails he sent with extra help including links and videos certainly helped as well. Thanks to John I managed to pass first time.
Craig Morris. ( Passed January 2015 )
After lessons with a previous instructor I was making little progress and soon gave up. John instilled confidence and encouraged me to persist with driving lessons. Not only did I pass but I finally learnt how to reverse around a corner!
Thanks John! Emily Newman. ( Passed January 2015 )
Thanks to his patience, commitment, flexibility and sense of humour as an instructor, I am now writing this as a qualified driver! As an older driver in my 30s who’d had a few lessons as a teenager, I’d never taken the next steps or driven again until this year. I had a very slow start with another instructor before finding John. I needed someone who could tailor their teaching to my specific needs and John did exactly this. He adapted his teaching so every lesson was always pitched at the right level – a balance between not allowing me to run before I could walk but always pushing me in a way that motivated and challenged me. Thanks John! See you soon for Pass Plus!
Michelle Gopsill. ( Passed December 2014 )
“John is a brilliant instructor, he explains things clearly and helps you understand where your skills need improving. Each lesson was tailored to me and my learning rather than doing a specific set of things each week and on top of all that he isn’t too expensive and is a really nice guy!”
Thanks again John for teaching me how to drive and helping me build up my confidence.
Emily Gray ( Passed December 2014 )
“Learning with John was a completely different experience compared to my last instructor; you can tell he really cares about his pupils. Lessons are relaxed, fun & tailored to your needs; I looked forward to every lesson. He is always reliable I would definitely recommend John, he’ll will teach you to be a good driver & pass your test with confidence.”
Jenny Barclay. ( Passed December 2014 )
“John is an excellent driving instructor, who takes time to ensure all aspects of driving are covered safely and effectively, not once did I feel under pressure. The lessons are great fun and they are light-hearted at all times. I could not recommend John highly enough, I haven’t been driving long but there has been many occasions already where John’s advice has been of paramount importance while on the road solo. Thank you for helping me pass my test and for really preparing me for the road ahead!”
Michael Harris. ( Passed October 2014 )
“John is an extremely patient driving instructor who ensures that each individual gets the most out of their driving lessons. Constantly focusing on areas for improvement, John enables individuals to become safe, confident drivers at their own pace and does not apply any pressure for booking tests. Also, lessons with John are reliable and always on time which is another reason why I would strongly recommend individuals to take lessons with JDS driving school… Thank you John!” Melissa Dyer.

John is brilliant instructor, he is very professional, extremely patient and flexible, he always encourage you and makes you feel confident. Unlike many other instructor money is not his priority.

After 6 months of trying to pass my license with a previous instructor… I gave up. When I finally decided to restart my lessons, I found John; he made me feel so relaxed and has some excellent techniques that helped me pick everything up, before I knew it I had passed! Thanks John. Ryan Cambell. ( Passed June 2014 )
Learning to drive is a scary thing but John made me feel confident when, at times, I didn’t feel it myself! He puts you at ease when learning and breaks things down so you can take everything in that much easier! At first I dreaded learning how to drive as it was such a responsibility, but after a couple of lessons with John, I couldn’t wait to do it again! Very much a memorable experience, one that I would recommend to anyone! Hannah Tierney ( Passed June 2014 )
Great instructor, friendly and approachable, got the job done driving licence to prove it. 😀
Sam Woolley ( Passed April 2014 )
John is a fantastic driving instructor, although what you are learning to do is very serious, John seems to make it feel light hearted and unpressured. He is very calm and patient creating a great atmosphere to learn in! His teaching style is professional and simple so it is easy to pick up! I would highly recommend john as a driving instructor I had never been in a car before I started my lessons and passed first time! I can’t thank him enough!! Fran Bell.( Passed April 2014 )
The minute I met John, I was instantly put at ease. He was very professional and extremely thorough in his instruction and the atmosphere was always relaxed, which as a pupil massively helps. I felt I could ask him anything and he always went the extra mile to help me with any particular areas I was struggling on. I’m not the most confident person, so to pass with 2 minors is a credit to both john and myself. Richie McNamara.( Passed April 2014 )
‘Fantastic instructor, great at explaining and demonstrating driving techniques. Passed first time. John you’re the BEST!’

“Learning to drive with John was a great experience as he is so calm & patient, and at the same time reassuring & encouraging. He clearly adapts his teaching style to each of his students and knows when to increase the complexity of routes, manoeuvres or introduce new elements so that the lessons are always evolving. His number one priority is safety and getting students to feel confident no matter what level they are at, and preparing them for all eventualities & situations. I would definitely recommend him, as I passed my test first time. Thanks John!” (Lucy Thomas)
