Intensive Driving Lessons
We offer weekly, semi intensive and intensive driving lessons in London. Living in the hustle and bustle of London, we understand many learners just want to pass fast. At driveJohnson’s we understand this requirement but how we differ from our fellow competitors is getting you assessed first. That means we don’t want all of your money upfront – it means getting you booked in for a 2 hour assessment lesson and no matter what level you are coming to us at, our driveJohnson’s approved driving instructor will be able to tell you how many hours you need, how much it will cost and when to book the test (often the office helps with the test booking bit).
As a general rule we recommend to book either an assessment or the 10 hour block booking deal and then after seeing you, we will tailor you an intensive driving course in London that works for you!
After failing with another company I needed to pass quickly, I was recommended to use driveJohnson’s. I took around 8 hours and then passed with just 1 minor fault. So it was a massive turn around in assort period of time.

As a large established driving school in London we pride ourselves on the hundreds and thousands of positive reviews we receive every year. Unfortunately, you can’t please everyone, but hopefully you can see online internally on our website and externally we please the vast majority. Our driving school is quite unique compared to many of our competitors as we work on a reciprocal relationship basis with our instructors and pupils
For example, if a particular instructor who has joined us receives too many complaints/negative reviews we ask them to leave the company. Because our instructors own their own vehicles it’s very easy for us to do this. On the flip side, If a particular instructor who has joined us doesn’t receive enough work from us, they can choose to leave driveJohnson’s quite freely too.

I had failed my driving test three times before I finally had lessons with driveJohnson's and it was down to Jassim that I finally managed to pass - even though I thought I never would! I realised how wrong my past teacher had been teaching me just to get me to buy more lessons! However Jassim was amazing and got me to pass really quickly. Would recommend driveJohnson's!
Thank you Getachew for being so supportive and kind! you really made learning to drive fun and easy. I will miss our lessons and chats but so excited to be on the road!! beep beep
if you are looking to learn you wont go wrong with this man he is the best!!
I am really happy with my lessons so far; John has taken the time and consideration to plan out all of my lessons. They also lead on from one another so you can see how much you are progressing!
Manual driving I find very difficult and not for me. I call Johnsons Driving School to get lessons with automatic tuition, I had 35 hrs with Mr Yazdi so I could feel more confidence and know how to be driving very well. Then I pass my test and get UK drivers lisense. I am pleased with Mr Yazdi and very glad and happy he was my teacher in driving
Passed my test with kem first time with 2 minors! If you want to be a safe confident driver book Kem! Great guy!
I had a great time learning to drive with Artur who did an amazing job teaching me to be a safe driver. I passed first time and feel confident driving in future, I highly reccomed as an instructor.
I was booked in with Saide for a surprise birthday lesson. It really was an fantastic first lesson for me. I was super nervous but all that went away as soon as we started. Saide made me feel really comfortable. I have so far done 15 hours and have a few more to go but enjoying my lessons with him.
Great instructor, got me through my test for the 1st time with only 2 minors.
I had been recommended Hassnain by a friend; I am so thankful I went with him, he is a great instructor. He gave me great advice when it came to my bad driving habits and has helped me become a safer driver
John was always really flexible and accommodating of my needs, having 4 young children it's difficult finding time for driving lessons and even harder to keep it up and stay consistent, however with John's hours and commitment, he got me in at least once a week and I passed my test with him too!! He's extremely organised and our lessons were always planned - which was great as I am extremely unorganised!
Passed 1st time with 2 minors. All through my lessons from start to finish Pat always made me feel at ease with my driving. I am over the moon and would highly recommend this driving school.
I passed my driving test with Rafi. He built my confidence and made my driving lessons very comfortable. I highly recommend him.
Saide, well where do I start. This man is ledge. He was honest with me in my first assessment lesson and advised me the areas that i needed to work on, to be honest thats what i wanted. Someone to tell me what was what. He has passed be in 15 hours and 0 Minors!!! :D Thank you Saide, Keep smiling!!!
Passed 1st time with Dilip, great instructor, patient and very knowledgable
I'd like to thank him for helping me pass my test with three minors. He was nice enough to explain things over and over again for me and helped me a lot in avoiding mistakes in driving.
Matthew is easy to talk to, professional and a patient driving instructor. With well-planned lessons adapted to what you need to work on improving your driving every lesson. He helped me to achieve a first-time pass. Highly recommended!
I did my lessons with Hamid and passed my test after 25 hours! My lessons were always structured and I looked forward to seeing him and learning something new everytime! If you're in need of automatic lessons with a top instructor, he's your guy!
The best instructor! I pass my test today and so excited i did it. Thank you for your all your help
I passed my test the first time with just 5 minors thanks to John Sundaresan at Drivejohnsons! John is so encouraging no matter what, even when you're having a bad day he helps to lighten your mood so that you still feel confident. I'm so happy to have passed so quickly, see you on the roads!
Rafi throughout the course of my lessons was amazing and flawless. He was firm when he needed to be but was also a great teacher. He had constant faith in me and he was extremely dedicated. I had booked my test before my lessons and after doing a two hour assesment with Rafi he told me not to move my test and I would only need 10 hours. Any other company would have tried to give me more and more lessons to get more money out of me. But Rafi was honest and that is something I really. appreciate. Thanks to Rafi I passed first time with just two minors. I feel like I haven’t just got my Licence but I have also made a friend.
I have recently passed my driving test after having lessons with Matthew from MPG3 Driving School. Matthew is an incredibly patient teacher, every lesson is carefully planned and organised to ensure that you make progress and continue to feel confident whilst you learn. He was extremely reliable and took my work schedule into consideration when booking lessons. I am hugely grateful for the very positive experience I have had and would recommend Matthew to any new drivers.
I couldn't ask for anything more with Bene; she is a wonderful instructor. She knows exactly what she is talking about and has a variety of techniques for nervous drivers.
Bene is a great driving instructor, she took the time to tell me exactly how manoeuvres should be carried out. Ben is extremely patient and caring, which has lead me to becoming a much safer driver!
A huge thank you to Jassim for helping me to pass my test! Before I started lessons with him, I was with a really bad instructor at another driving school who really knocked my confidence. Jassim made me love driving again!
Couldn't be happier with my experience with Drivejohnsons and my instructor, Jassim! All of my lessons were thoroughly planned out and I was really impressed with the progress cards that Jassim gave me at the end of each lesson. They made me feel as if I had such a productive lesson and couldn't wait for my next!
I wasn't sure about using a bigger driving school because of all the things you read online, but after being let down SIX times in a row by someone else, I called driveJohnson's to book my first lesson just so I could get the ball rolling. Ahmad did my lesson and we got on like a house on fire, and now after 15 hours with him I'm looking at booking my test for next month - great instructor!
Had my 1st lesson today, really nervous.Kem made me feel at ease in my lesson.
Was so happy when I managed to pass in just two weeks with John! I really wanted to pass before I went to uni and John made that happen for me. The lessons were so productive and each was planned beforehand so we didn't waste any time. To anyone looking to pass quick, book your lessons with John!
Florin is a fantastic instructor, patient, polite and extremely supportive.
I passed my driving test last week with 3 minors. Mr. Rafi is a great instructor who taught me the skills for being a safe driver. He has built the confidence in me for driving and never let me give up. Inwas a difficult learner and he always explains all the information with patience. He was always happy to schedule me for extra lessons close to exams. I would recommend him for everyone who is willing to learn driving.
I can't believe i passed my test first time with Drivejohnsons and thats all down to Domenico, will highly recommend to friends and family.
Just passed my test first time with Jassim, he is friendly and calm. Each lesson was great; he took the time to explain everything to me and ensured I understood if I was struggling
“Success is something that comes with a lot of hard work and patience”... My experience with Rafi has definitely consolidated this cliché. He has been great with helping me get my driving license through hard work and lots of advice both on and off the road. He is a great person and I am glad to call a true friend!
Bets instructor in Barnet. If you want to pass first time - Call driveJohnson's/Susanna!
Great instructor. Lessons were fun and I passed first time. Carmelina is very easy going but she does get stricter as your test is coming up, which I think is a good thing.
I was really nervous when I first started lessons, but Hassnain made me feel so comfortable. He was happy to keep going over things until I felt confident and didn't make me feel under pressure if I forgot something or got something wrong. Hassnain is such a patient, friendly and professional instructor, I really enjoyed lessons with him!
Thanks so much to Hassnain for my driving lessons, I passed the first time! Couldn't be happier with the way my driving lessons went, he was considerate and patient every step of the way.
Passed my driving test 1st time with Pat, would highly recommend.
A great experience with Getachew and drivejohnsons. From booking in to passing the test it was easy and friendly. Getachew was a great instructor with the patience of a saint.
I came to Abbas after my friend recommended him as i was learning with a different school and not having a great experience. My previous instructor was very unreliable and i didn't feel i was getting much from my lessons. Abbas was so different and made me enjoy learning to drive again. He was reliable, friendly and very encouraging throughout every lesson. I cant thank him enough as i was ready to quit.
you wont go wrong learning with him.
Ankur was a great instructor, patient, kind and funny made me laugh in lessons and always put me at ease. Thank you for getting me through my test and being so supportive.
I passed my driving test 1st time today with only 4 minors with Rafi's help. Rafi was my third driving instructor in the past year and half I've been doing my lesson, but he was the one that built the most confidence in me. If you're a very nervous driver (like me) Rafi's way of teaching is great as he's patient, he makes your feel relaxed and doesn't mind going over the same thing repeatedly to get it right. I was really nervous about my driving test but he went the extra mile by arranging his schedule to do early morning sessions and to have a final evening session the day before my driving test. His teaching method really sets you up for driving for life and I'm so happy to have had him as my driving instructor.
M.Rafi is an excellent instructor. He helped me pass with 1 minor in my driving test. Firstly, he is very dedicated to ensuring his students pass and regularly sends YouTube videos with driving to help improve your weaknesses in driving. He always gives clear instructions during driving lessons and always maintains a calm and positive attitude even when you doubt yourself. These qualities make him a great instructor. Some of my favourite motivational quotes from M.Rafi are: "Practice does not make perfect but PERFECT PRACTICE makes perfect" and "There is no shortcut to success". I would like to thank him for making the effort of travelling far distances for my weekly lessons as I live far to where he was originally teaching, he is very dedicated and will never, ever give up on you. He also taught my sister, this helped us learn from each other and made us more confident drivers. I am very thankful to M.rafi because now i have achieved a new skill and i will be able to use this skill for life and be safe on the roads. Highly recommended.
Jassim is a great instructor; he took the time to make sure I felt confident in the manoeuvre before moving onto the next. He is extremely patient, and I cannot recommend him enough!
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 booked my first ten lessons with John; he is a fantastic driving instructor! I cannot recommend him enough, he is a rigorous teacher and will tell you when you are making a mistake, but this all leads to helping you become a better driver.
Quality instructor and a top man. He made the lessons fun and enjoyable.
Hassnain was a great teacher and always made my lessons easy to follow and enjoyable. Lessons were clearly planned out and based around my strengths, weaknesses and what was left to learn. I passed really quickly with only three minors so I am really happy with Hassnain.
Honestly Alex is the most sound guy you could ever meet!! I did my lessons with him and passed after something ridiculous like 15 hours!! Sick instructor and has a heart of gold, if you need lessons then definitely hit him up, trust me you won't regret it!!
I just passed my test today, all thanks to Susanna. She's a brilliant instructor. Woooooooooooooop. Beep, beep. See ya on the roads everyone!!!
