A big thank you to Pass Driving School.I would definitely recommend John Platts. Initially I was a very nervous driver and was very worried about taking the rest.John Platts is a brilliant and patient teacher, I soon began to feel relaxed when driving. He was very good at preparing me for the test and ensured I stayed calm beforehand.I couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you again !

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Ian Cross for all his help with my driving lessons, after 8 weeks of lessons I passed my test FIRST time at Canterbury on Wednesday. Would recommend him to everybody :)

Honestly the best driving instructor and round. Jay is such an easy person to talk to, always made sure you feel at ease with driving. He has taught 5 people I know and we have all passed first time .Thank you so much for your help Jay!

Had Steve Foster as my instructor! Couldn’t recommend a better instructor than him. So pleased with what I have learnt , took me a while to get there but I’ve finally done it! Steve made lessons fun all the time and gave me so much confidence in driving .Will miss his lessons finally done it though, thank you Steve .
