My instructor was brilliant. He made the lessons structured, fun and enjoyable. I would recommend 'Don' to anyone who is nervous about learning to drive. You will love him!

Experience With driveJohnson's:5 star rating

Testimonial photo of Jacob Stint

I took the 20 hour intensive course in South Shields. I have to say I'm surprised I passed with only 1 minor fault, but the credit must go to my instructor 'Russ'. Quality instructor and top bloke!
