About our Driving school in Romford

Teaching you to drive isn't just taking you out in a car for an hour and throwing you into the most difficult areas - we recognise there is more to it than that. When you have you start your your lessons with driveJohnson's driving school in Romford, we'll get you in the driving seat as quickly as possible, but in a quiet area with a straight and wide road, getting you used to the feel of the car, moving off and stopping. Herbert Road and Curtis Road in the Emerson Park area make for great places to start out, with plenty of opportunity to learn left and right turns.

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.


Highly recommend Getachew! I did 8 hours with him after struggling with another instructor and learnt more in those 8 hours than i did in the previous 16 hours. To top it off he was always friendly and a pleasure to be around


Quality instructor and a top man. He made the lessons fun and enjoyable.


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


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.


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!!


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.


I would like to say thank you to driveJohnson's office team firstly for allocating me Saadat. They listened to my requirements over the phone and assured me Saadat would make me feel comfortable and less nervous. I had a bad experience with another company so I really didn't want my confidence being knocked anymore.

Thanks to Saadat for making the lessons very clam, productive and every lesson I walked away feeling like I had learnt something new. I passed first time because of Saadat, he prepared me for the driving test nerves so on the day I was still nervous but not crumbling like I usually would have under exam conditions. Thank you!


Getachew is the nicest and kindest man!! thank you so much for helping me through my test i throughly enjoyed every lesson


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


I can't believe I just passed. Wooooooooooooo!!! Thank you Saadat you are amazing. The best instructor around! I will miss my lessons with you. See you on the roads. Beep, Beep :-)


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


Saadat is an amazing instructor. He taught me from the beginning and I passed after 28 hours of driving lessons thanks to him.

He is very calm and his teaching formula's are spot on! Learn with Saad if you want to pass first time!


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.


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 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!!


Great driving instructor and even better man. Very calm, humble and kind. Teaching style suited me well. I passed my test first time thanks to your guidance.


Trust Saadat and this man will get you through your driving test first time!
Quality instructor, all my mates are coming your way. Don't worry about the referral fee :-) Thanks for all your help. Your instruction and knowledge was spot on. Booooooooom - I have a driving licence because of you Saadat!

Why you should choose us for your driving lessons in Romford

Being a large historic market town in East London, Romford has everything you need to become a confident and safe driver in a city environment, preparing you for driving in London and other cities. Through our great driving instructors and local knowledge, driveJohnson's has been providing driving lessons in and helping people pass their driving test in Romford for more than a decade. As mentioned above, we won't throw you in at the deep end - we'll start your driving lessons off in one of the quieter areas like Emerson Park, Heath Park and Collier Row, then build you up to the more complex areas.

Once you're a more confident driver, your instructor will take you further into the heart of Romford. You'll cover roads like the A1251 and the A125 which orbit the town centre. These roads can be tricky, particularly with their roundabouts in quick succession and various other types of junction. The A12 also runs through the town, which will help you gain some vital dual carriageway experience. Since you're most likely to take your driving test in Hornchurch, you'll also cover the roads surrounding the Hornchurch Driving Test Centre, helping you be prepared for and have a good knowledge of the roads in the area.

Our driving instructors will teach you everything you need to know to be a great driver and pass your driving test, as well as giving you lots of tips and tricks to help you deal with the most complex scenarios Romford can throw at you.
