driveJohnson’s Adi Testimonials…
We have a very happy family of driving instructors at driveJohnson’s. So much so, most of our new instructors come through recommendations from existing driveJohnson’s instructors.
The testimonials you see below are genuine. We have only edited the wording where it mentions another driving school that may not be of a positive nature.
I joined driveJohnson’s having become increasingly disaffected with my previous driving school. Upon the recommendation of an instructor I had trained with, I was introduced to Anthony and we instantly seemed to get on well.
For me, filling my car with pupils and allowing me to get on with what I enjoy doing most – teaching, has been the overarching driver. Within 72 hours of us agreeing to work together, I was, much to my wife’s amusement, turning pupils away. That is a situation that has persisted. Three days is the most I have ever had to wait for a new pupil.
I trained to be an instructor with *** and worked with them for 5 years, long hours and not much profit. I moved onto the ** and only lasted about a year and a half, long hours and little profit. Things looked up when I started with ** *****, long hours and a bit more profit.
New pupils are always texted to me promptly and on a very regular basis, which means I do not have to rely on recommendations anymore. On joining driveJohnson’s, my diary was full again after only 2 – 3 weeks!!!
I have been with driveJohnson’s for almost 10 years now. I have seen the company grow from just myself and Anthony to over 100 instructors across the UK.
The massive advantage ‘Anthony’ (owner) has over the bigger companies is that he knows how to win the work. He knows what 17 year olds are thinking and where they are looking. He then puts the advertising in the right places at low costs with maximum return, which is why the driveJohnson’s franchise is lower than any other national company I know of out there.
Just wanted to say how much I am enjoying my driveJohnson’s experience. Not only is my diary full but I have a more consistent workflow, as soon as a learner passes I immediately get another, I love it. Hassle and stress free diary management leaves me better placed to deal with my learners more professionally.
Then I called Anthony at driveJohnson’s and he asked me to meet with him, which I did and we had a great informal chat, he answered all my questions and was honest and open about everything. So I then joined driveJohnson’s and have never looked back, if you have any queries or questions you can always call ‘Anthony’ as he is as approachable, honest and open now as he was back then. I have never struggled for work and the franchise fee is very reasonable.
So I started thinking that driving instructing was a waste of time, I spent more than £4,000 qualifying with no reward. I bought my own car and started my own driving school ‘Aniello driving school of excellence’. Believe it or not, I was doing better than the two big national companies.
I remember the first time I visited driveJohnson’s HQ, I was on my own and it was May 12th 2014. I immediately thought that the driving school was great. There was a fantastic atmosphere at Challenge House (where the office is based) and I just wondered ‘is it always like this?’ – even at that time I thought it would be great to be part of it.
Straight after qualifying I joined driveJohnson’s with zero pupils.
I’m not lying, within 3 weeks I had a full diary. After working with driveJohnson’s for 9-12 months I left to go travelling for a further 12 months (something I promised myself I would do after my dad passed away).
I’m really pleased with the service I get, it’s first class and inexpensive. driveJohnson’s approached me a year ago asking for some help with pupils in the Leicestershire area… They were really easy to deal with and honest with me and I was surprised at how easily and quickly they helped me to build up my diary, whilst not asking for an awful lot in return.
I’ve been driving instructing since 1992 and as well as having run my own school, I have worked for various large national companies over the years. None of them have ever really kept their promise of providing you work, always happy to get you to sign franchise agreements giving you assurances of work but not delivering.
When I joined driveJohnson’s I was low. I was ready to give up the job as my franchise was not working out. Then, I saw Anthony Johnson’ he took me to one side and said “don’t quit, the learner drivers out there need instructors like you”
He gave me belief again that I could do the job, if it wasn’t for Anthony I would probably be helping guys fill their cars up with fuel!
Coming back to my depot after delivering all night, I decided to risk stopping the wagons and join a franchise. I went home that morning had a look around different websites and then remembered that Zoe had rang me.
I am an instructor for driveJohnson’s and just wanted to say a few words about my experience with the company. I qualified approximately 1 and a half years ago and like everyone that starts off, the experience is quite daunting. I had decisions to make in regards to which company to join and whether I wanted to fly solo etc.
would just like to say how happy I am with driveJohnson’s and with the franchise deal being very good value.
Plus the contribution and hard work the office staff do put in to support the instructors and everyone at driveJohnson’s!
I cannot say enough good things about driveJohnson’s, from their great support from the office staff which are always just a text or call away to the constant amount of work coming through. Leaving the other company to join driveJohnson’s was the best decision I made and my diary has been full since day one, something I never had the benefit of with the other driving school.
My last franchise was a nightmare, no real work to speak of and the people in the office just didn’t deliver the goods. Overall I am well happy and would recommend any one to come and join the team at driveJohnson’s.
Trained and qualified with BSM from 2008-2014, I left after 6 years of working with them, paying too much franchise; I decided to buy my own car be my own boss. One day got a call from Zoe at driveJohnson’s, first I was reluctant to join, but decided to go for the two weeks free franchise, since then if I look back I have made the right decision, always have work, I do not regret it at all, thanks to Zoe for making that call, I am so happy with driveJohnson’s!
As I have been an instructor for many years I was extremely sceptical about joining up with a large driving school. However, once I had met Anthony Johnson, my fears were quickly dispelled with the professional friendly way in which our meeting went.
If I am ever feeling short of work or have pupils that have passed and no longer require my tuition I just give the office a call and I’ll get new pupils within days.
