Experience & About Me:

I became a driving instructor in 2011 after an 18 year career as a prison officer. Since qualifying I’ve created over 300 new drivers and changed their lives for the better. 

I joined driveJohnson’s just over a year ago as they are without doubt the best driving school in the country.

Favourite Quote:

My favourite quote is “what a fantastic day for a drive” … because every day is.

Memorable moment

Twins passing in 2013 on the same day at the same test centre in the same car with the same number of minors. . 2 each ..same things


Honest, reliable, trustworthy people.


Dishonest unreliable untrustworthy people.

Great instructor, very understanding and patient, nice person to drive with and very knowledgeable. Passed first time and it was all down to the well planned lessons before the exam. Cannot thank Ian enough!

by Rachel Dalby on Ian Dickman

absolutely amazing instructor!! after failing the first time with a different instructor, I turned to Ian for help and I wouldn't look back! after only 4 hours of driving with Ian before my next test I learned considerable amounts and succeeded by passing the 2nd time round. Would 100% recommend Ian as a driving instructor! makes you feel confident and comfortable! :)

Ian Dickman is a superb driving instructor. When I first started out with him, I was on the brink of quitting my driving lesson. He explains things and makes it so easy to grasp. I couldn't ask for a better teacher.

Thank you

Ian is an absolutely great instructor, he is such a credit to drive Johnson's!! After being with a previous driving instructor who was clearly just out for my money and was not helping me to improve my driving at all. I approached Ian and I had approximately 6 lessons with him and I passed my driving test no problem. I am now driving about and loving every minute of it all thanks to Ian, I would highly recommend him without a doubt.
