Thank you drivejohnsons for my driving lessons - they were top notch. And thanks to my instructor. I passed with 3 minors.
Experience With driveJohnson's:
My instructor was really good - we joked about in the lessons, but when I needed to be serious we could be. I learnt so fast.
Experience With driveJohnson's:
Thank youu so much DJ for giving me a great instructor in Derry. He knew some nice tricks for helping me with my awful coordination on the manoeuvres.
Experience with driveJohnson's:
I enjoyed my lessons with driveJohnson's. I failed my test with my old instructor who was independent, but the standard from driveJohnson's was so much better.

Recently added Derry Testimonials
Here are some of the new testimonials we have received that are added on a daily basis.
Doing my driving lessons with Noel was one of the best things i could have done. He made me feel confident on the road, brilliant at explaining and breaking things down so it is better to understand he believed in me and pushed me until i passed and you are always guaranteed a laugh. Hands down brilliant driving instructor and would highly recommend to anyone
Noel's methods of lessons were great made everything easy to understand he was always patient and we could always have a joke while learning.
Noel is a very professional driving instructor who i would recommend to anyone. As an extremely nervous driver he put me at ease and i cant thank him enough for helping me get my R plates.
I got my driving lessons from Noel, i had never driven a car before. The lessons were very well presented and i was made to feel at ease and his attention to detail was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and hav no hesitation in recommending him to others
Noel is a great instructor explains everything so well had no problem giving my friends his number
Amazing instructor very patient and makes u feel relaxed gets rid of the nerves almost straight away passed first time with Noel in Derry and wud highly recommend him
Noel is a very good driving instructor he made me feel at ease from the start. I had done lessons with a different instructor but never felt confidant enough to go for my test. Noel had a great way of explaining things and helping me gain my confidence, he encouraged me to apply for my test which i passed. I would definitely recommend Noel as a driving instructor if u want results and a bit of banter along the way
Hi Noel, Just want to say thanks for all your help getting me through my test. You were a God send the lessons were fab and u hav the patience of a saint. Literally couldnt hav done it without u thanks so much
Yes Noel, cheers for all your help cudnt hav done the test without you. Your a legend 10 outa 10
I had 20 hours of driving lessons in Derry with Noel and passed first time. He's a quality instructor. I genuinely don't think I would have passed so quickly if it wasn't for him.
