lauran dolby - pass driving school student
I was recommended Pass driving school a few months ago and I’m so glad I did! John made me feel safe when driving and there was much flexibility with lesson to fit my needs. John really goes that extra mile to help his students by providing much support as well as resources to help through the the theory and practical exams. Would really recommend Pass Driving School to anyone starting to drive.

John King was the most amazing instructor and made me feel so comfortable. Would never had passed without him and honestly can't thank him enough. Would definitely recommend him to every one.

I was recommended to go with John King at Pass driving school. So pleased I did have John as my instructor as he was excellent, no time wasting, and I was able to pass my driving test in a very short time. Would highly recommend Pass driving school to anyone who is thinking of learning to drive.

HI was able to pass my practice driving test today on my FIRST attempt,all thanks to John King. He really is an amazing instructor and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an instructor who is willing to go the extra mile when it comes to easing your experience throughout the whole process, such as booking your test on your behalf. Although I might have made many mistakes while learning, John was always able to encourage progression whilst making the lesson enjoyable.

I had an excellent driving instructor from Pass Driving School, Alex Holder. He made me feel at ease no matter the situation, despite me being very nervous. He taught me in easy to understand ways, and was always supportive and some one I've come to consider good friend. I couldn't recommend Alex and Pass driving school enough, I couldn't of asked for more and had an experience I will always remember dearly.
