Experience & About Me:

Driving has always been a passion of mine. During my time in the armed forces, I acquired all my driving qualifications up to class 1.
I became a driving and maintenance instructor and over the years trained many soldiers in both cars & HGV vehicles.
I have held my licence now for over 32 years and have gained vast experience of driving in many countries in that time.
I was offered the opportunity to join the team at driveJohnson’s and accepted it with open arms.
Anthony and team are very friendly and always keep me very busy with new pupils.

John is an amazing instructor :) he is an asset to Drive Johnsons. Very polite, friendly, and professional person. He makes you feel at total ease. I am a very busy mum of three children, two of which are two and a half year old twins. I had my ups and downs but John was incredibly patient and reassured me with a lot of confidence. He is a very professional driver with lots of heroic stories to tell. He is a true hero and someone with will end up admiring. I couldn’t be happier I have finally achieved another one of my life goals. It doesn’t matter what you have going on in your life as long as you have an incredible instructor like John you can do it. I achieved a second time pass. I will miss seeing John every week and wish him the very best. I would highly recommend John to anyone wanting to learn one of the most needed life skills. I am so grateful thank you so much John.

Would highly recommend John as an instructor to anyone - especially those without confidence like myself! I went from dreading lessons and thinking of them like a chore to absolutely loving every second of driving and eager for the next lesson. Not to mention I passed first time with 4 minors! This was all down to John - so thank you for giving me the confidence and now my freedom!!

John taught my twin Daughters and got them both through their test first time with very few minors each! Feedback to us was great, always letting us know where they were at and what we needed to do to help them more. Well recommended - Thanks John, from Gary, Susan and of course Emma and Amy.

John is a great down to earth friendly guy, who is a fantastic driving instructor.
He earned myself a second time pass with 6 minors with having 20 hours worth of lessons.
Every lesson flew by, buliding my confidence with the excellent tuition and making me feel at ease every time I got behind the wheel. I would highly recommend John as a driving instructor and he is a credit to the Drive Johnson’s Company.

John is an absolutely fantastic driving instructor, he earned myself a second time pass with 0 minors! John was my day 1 driving instructor and got me passed with only 12 hours of lessons! John is a friendly and approachable figure with many stories to tell about his passed years in the army and plethora of pupils, making the time in the car absolutely fly! Since passing just under 2 months ago I have driven over 6,500 miles without fault with trips as far reaching as Wales. John encourages a realistic driving style and puts his students at ease with his easy going attitude. Couldn't be more grateful John, thanks again!
