Had very little time to get my lessons in before my test but Andy was very understanding about it and planned out the best method for me in that time .Felt very comfortable with him in the car and he had great teaching methods would highly recommend him. And best of all passed my test with very few minors so I was well pleased.
Andy is a superb driving instructor and a true professional. The best advantage I got with Andy being my driving instructor was that he carefully examined and pinpointed the key areas of improvement and tailored the lessons accordingly. He was always patient answering my questions though repeated many times. Will strongly recommend to everyone.Thanks a lot Andy
Lessons with Abdul were fun and informative, enjoyed every lesson. He really knows his stuff and I learnt so fast. Thanks a lot Abdul!
For family reasons it was very important to me that I passed my driving test, which I did today. My instructor, Andy Sterne was very professional, well organised and put everything into helping me perfect my driving, and In the weeks leading up to the test, Andy gave me lots of encouragement in my ability to pass.
I would definitely recommend Andy from DriveJohnsons.
Great guy and instructor who ensured he got to know me first before creating a lesson plan that was tailored to me. Also very flexible with booking times.
Andy helped me feel confident throughout my learning with great ways of teaching. Very patient and understanding of a learning driver. He was just amazing and i feel lucky to have had such a great experience learning to drive. I managed to pass first time too!
Andy is a fantastic instructor!
He constantly pushed me and made me perfect every aspect of my driving in time for my test.
I passed with just 3 minors and they were really silly things because I crumbled a bit with the pressure.
Still, very happy indeed!
I would 101% recommend you take your lessons from Andy - you will pass in no time!!
I passed first time with Andy and enjoyed every one of our lessons. A friendly and calm instructor with great driving techniques. Every drive i felt safe and reassured by him. Would highly reccomend to everyone!
Thank you Andy for everything
Thanks to Andy Sterne’s excellent knowledge of the area, I passed my driving test today. He made sure I was fully prepared for what the test would be like and on the day itself, he helped me stay calm and was very encouraging. I felt a little nervous during the test, but I kept in mind his words of advice and this helped to pull me through.
Andy always arrived on time for my lessons and was quite often several minutes early! He was very patient and encouraging and really knows his stuff, answering any questions I had clearly. He helped me perfect all aspects of my driving before my test, leaving nothing to chance.
Thank you for all your help Andy.
Andy Sterne was my given instructor and I cannot express how glad and grateful I am that I got given him and how happy I am that I had the honour of meeting him. He truly goes above and beyond for every lesson and is thoroughly prepared for every difficulty I may have encountered. My first lesson with Andy was the first time I have ever even been in a driving seat and today I passed my driving test. This is due to not only Andy’s incredible dedication and ability to teach but also his supportive, caring and fun personality which was incredibly encouraging and optimistic. On days where I may not have performed as well, he would regard it a learning curve and made sure that I did not give up. I could not recommend Andy more highly and I owe my success to him.
Andy Sterne was an amazing instructor. He made the lessons relaxed at the beginning because I was very nervous. As I got better, he challenged me with new subjects so every lesson I felt like I was making progress.I passed with 3 minor faults, taking just 30 hours of lessons - which for me I was very happy with this outcome as some of my friends had taken over 50 lessons with their instructors.
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
Andy is a superb driving instructor. Truely professional in every way, exactly what a learner needs. He made me the driver i am today, confident and careful. I was exceptionally nervous at first but Andy made me feel at ease throughout the whole process. He had handy tips and awareness skills to teach you exactly how to drive and deal with situations every driver faces from day to day driving. Even after I passed (1st time btw) he was still sending me tips and awareness skills. He answered all of my question and I had plenty. I cannot recommend Andy enough. He was simply perfect. Thanks so much Andy
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!
Andy helped me pass my driving test today on my first attempt! He is a wonderful instructor, always punctual for lessons, really knows his stuff and all round nice guy.
Thank you Andy.
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 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.
Andy is a great instructor who helped me pass my test first time with only 2 minors. He has a very professional manner and pushed me to improve my driving each week and progress. Andy is an all round nice guy and brilliant teacher. Would highly recommend to all!
Andy is a patient and professional instructor. He ensured that I was completely prepared for all eventualities that may have occurred during the test by preparing challenging and enjoyable lessons. I would recommend Andy to anyone who is looking to learn how to drive from a top class instructor.
Test tip of the month for Brentwood
If, after leaving the Brentwood test centre, you have taken a route into Queen’s Road and are now heading up this hill in 3rd gear, it is best on approaching the first mini roundabout, to change to 2nd gear. This is because there is a zebra crossing just before it, where pedestrians can appear from around the corner on left, with little warning. If you make your final approach to this mini roundabout at a slightly slower speed and in 2nd gear, you will be able to brake gradually and switch from 2nd to 1st gear for any pedestrians using the crossing.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect during my first driving lesson?
During your first driving lesson in Brentwood, our driveJohnson's driving instructor will ask you some questions about any previous driving experience and will talk you through the process in general. When you're ready, they will start you off in a quieter area of Brentwood to get you used to driving around and confident with the car. In your first lesson you will learn about the various controls in the car, clutch control, moving and stopping off.
At the end of your first lesson the instructor will drive you back to where you live or want dropping off, there will be a debrief where they will go over the lesson with you and offer some feedback.
How many hours will I need before I take my driving test?
Everyone is different and there is no right answer to this question. Our average pass time for complete beginners with no previous experience is 24 hours, however this can be dramatically less or more depending on the person. Our 2-hour assessment lesson is a great way to find out how many hours you may need and will allow your driving instructor to effectively plan your lessons.
