Here are some of the new testimonials we have received that are added on a daily basis.

Amazing instructor, was always on time would even be early, Jeffs such a nice guy couldn’t have wanted anyone else, I passed quick,will definitely be recommending him to everyone I know, 5 stars

Experience with driveJohnson’s:

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!

Experience with driveJohnson’s:

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 ;-)

Experience with driveJohnson’s:

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!

Experience with driveJohnson’s:

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.

Experience with driveJohnson’s:

driveJohnson's are rated 5/5 based on 2365 customer reviews
