Jeff Hockley

Experience & About Me:

I have been an instructor for over 10 years. If you are nervous I will help you feel calm, if you are a slow learner I will work positively with you and build up your confidence, if you are a natural I won't hold you back - I will get you to test standard as quickly and safely as possible. Outside of teaching pupils to drive I enjoy spending time with my family and watching Rugby.

Favourite Quote:

Brakes to slow, gears to go. If you don't know, do go. Less space, less speed (All driving instructor phrases unfortunately)

Memorable moment

Every pupil that passes is a great moment. I have the same passion for the job as I did when I first qualified.


Pupils passing first time.


Pupils failing their test with me. Very rare though.

Thank you so much for helping me pass my test (first time too - wooohooo)
From the first phone call to the office through to taking my test with Jeff the experience was 5 stars. I'm not going to lie there were a few moments where I thought I couldn't do it, but somehow Jeff gave me the pep talk and the confidence to keep going. Fantastic driving school and you must ask for Jeff if you live in Basildon - you won't regret it!

I learnt to drive with Jeff and passed first time. Top man and quality instructor. Thank you Jeff, I shall be sending my wife your way soon, she won't be as easy to teach as me though ;-)

Big up to my main man Jeff. Couldn't have passed today with the big man Jeff Hockley. He taught me everything I know and I passed today first time with 2 minor faults. Boooooooooom!

by Donna Appleton on Jeff Hockley

I took just 30 hours to pass my driving test first time with Jeff. My feedback is the following: Lessons were very well structured and planned. When I struggled with a subject, Jeff would help me by using diagrams and commentaries which really helped. On a few occasions I very nearly killed us - he remained very calm, told me not to worry and built my confidence back up. I'm not a natural and I passed with 3 driving faults all thanks to Jeff.
