John was a legend of an instructor…Told me the areas I needed to improve on and was very people focused. Most importantly John gave me the belief to realise I could drive and I could pass. Thankyou John

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I recently completed a driving course and I’m thrilled with the experience. John was knowledgeable and provided valuable insights. The lessons were well-structured, and the instructor’s patience made the learning process enjoyable. The learning environment was supportive. From navigating traffic to mastering parking, I gained confidence in every aspect of driving. Highly recommend Redy2drive for anyone seeking a comprehensive and effective driving education.

As an instructor you generally had confidence in me, when I didn’t. You were a motivation to me through my time learning with you. Your high standards, commitment and dedication shows through your success rate. Thank you for being the best part of my learning journey, keep being the best!

Thank you to Jon for the incredible skills you’ve taught me. You’ve been an amazing instructor and couldn’t praise you enough. You put my mind more at ease with driving and gave me advice and support in a gentle way that didn’t feel pressured at all.

You’ve been absolutely fantastic and worked with me every step of the way, don’t think I’d of ever passed without you being my instructor.

I would like to thank JHON EDY and Redy2Drive for their professionalism and commitment. He is an excellent instructor, very patient, understanding and good motivator. He explained the skills required in a clear and easy to understand manner. He helped me understand my common mistakes, keeping calm to help me improve. I am so happy I passed my driving test, having a full license gives me so much more freedom and I would definitely recommend learning with Redy2Drive & specially JHON EDY.

It was overall a fabulous experience.

John took over me from another instructor. He is much better and patient. He supports me all the way and provides me the feedbacks. He always encourage me to take the positive sides.

Definitely recommends to everyone who wants to learning driving.

He’s only gone and done it. Dave has managed to teach my son to drive and my son passed first time. Dave also taught my daughter who also passed first time. Dave is such a brilliant driving instructor with great communication, patience and knowledge. Even during the testing times of covid he was always reliable and always available to answer any questions or concerns. Can not recommend Dave and Redy2drive enough.

Thankyou to John for being a great driving instructor. It was a great experience from start to finish (even with covid)… such a great professional standard set throughout . After having not such a good experience previously with another instructor…. John turned this around, fantastic teaching methods and helped with nerves.With fantastic guidence , and reassurance to help support confidence too. I passed my test as a result of this great experience. Would definitely recommend Redy2Drive a 100% Also a huge added bonus of being able to learn in an electric car 😊

After having trouble learning to drive with other companies, I was persuaded to join ‘Redy2drive’ and it was honestly the best choice I’ve ever made! Dave was so patient and always made me feel calm, even when I made mistakes. I would 100% recommend this company and I can’t thank Dave Enough for the support and encouragement that he has given me. He is the reason I passed my test this afternoon!

I used to think that my anxiety would impede me from driving, and I held it off for years because I couldn’t imagine being able to cope, but I’m so glad I made the leap with Redy2Drive. In the past few months with Dave, I have been able to make more progress than I had ever thought possible, culminating in a successful driving test yesterday. His calm approach immediately helped to put me at ease and upon making any little errors, for which I’d normally berate myself, he’d simply happily tell me not to apologise, and to treat it as part of the process. His positive and constructive feedback motivated me to continue pressing forward, and through chatting we were quickly able to build good rapport. A driving lesson gradually changed from a daunting prospect to simply a drive around with a friend, and his faith in my ability spread to me and improved my confidence, to such a point that I was able to master my nerves on the day of my test, and show my examiner what I had been taught so well. Through accommodating for my condition, yet still challenging me, Dave showed me that my anxiety needn’t be a barrier to my driving success, and I can proudly say that with his help, I haven’t given up and allowed it to hold me back. Having a licence now affords me so much freedom, and I cannot thank Dave enough for making it possible, nor can I recommend him highly enough to anyone looking to learn how to drive, regardless of their mental health and self-confidence. A thousand thanks to Redy2Drive.

My son has just passed his test today first time and this is all down to the excellent teaching of John. The two hour lessons are perfect for them to absorb the information being taught and allows them to travel further and experience more road conditions

Dave is an amazing instructor who becomes more like a friend when you learn with him. His continuous support and calm manner makes even the most nervous of drivers feel at ease. I had never driven a car before and heard horror stories regarding some instructors but with Dave I was driving back home on my 3rd lesson and have passed today due to his guidance, professionalism and skill. I am sad that I will no longer be learning to drive with Dave and I cannot recommend him enough as an instructor. Thank you so much Dave for all the laughs and for giving me my freedom in the form of a licence.

What a brilliant instructor! When starting to learn to drive, Dave immediately put me at ease. He gave me the confidence in my own ability and was patient when teaching new manoeuvres.

Dave made a real effort to be encouraging and I really enjoyed my lessons with him. Passing first time with only one minor was a real credit to his teaching. I would 100% recommend him and can’t thank him enough!

Thank you, Dave!

After having many lessons elsewhere and failing to progress I took a break from driving feeling that I simply couldn’t do it and that I would never pass my test.

Fast forward a year later and David Bond is telling me I’m driving home on my first lesson and I think I’ve been given a mad man for an instructor.

All in all I was empowered to take responsibility and ownership for my driving, my confidence though fragile to begin with (there were some very ugly cries, there were silent weeps and even some pessimistic cackles) has continued to grow with time, patience and most importantly a good laugh.

A big thank you for Dave in helping me to pass! I couldn’t recommend him enough

Passed my driving test first time after 4 months of lessons with John and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to learn! He’s a great instructor and is very patient, calm, and friendly, so I always felt at ease during our lessons. I was quite nervous about learning to drive, but his approach to teaching made me feel comfortable and allowed me to make good progress without ever feeling like I was being pushed too far. I’m really happy with the teaching I received and now feel a lot more confident in my driving ability, thank you again and I would definitely recommend Redy2Drive!

I honestly cannot recommend John enough to learn to drive with! I’d had lessons a few months previous with another driving school and my time/money was wasted and confidence was seriously knocked but it didn’t take long driving with Redy2drive to help me build it back up again. I found John’s teaching methods so much easier to pick up and remember and always felt comfortable and safe on lessons, I ended up passing with 4 minors and am so proud of myself! Thank you so much – so pleased!

I was a driving examiner with the DSA/DVSA for eleven years and I can highly recommend John.

Well done John and thank you.

I would definitely recommend Redy2Drive to anyone. I had two instructors before John and was failing miserably however Johns positive attitude and flexibility made it seamless and easy. After having my confidence knocked and being told I would only ever succeed in an automatic car, John made me feel at ease and every lesson I seemed to be getting better and better. I’m going to miss having John in the car and I can’t thank him enough for giving me back my confidence to help me pass.

Thank you so much John!!

John was so helpful. I had my test booked for 5th September and originally had a different instructor but due to some issues I had to change my instructor 2 weeks before my test. I was recommended John through a friend and it was the best decision I made. I wanted to change my test but John could see my potential and encouraged me to stick with the 5th. He was calming, boosting my confidence, showed me how to drive realistically and not just to pass the test. He was a star and because of him I passed my test first time round! I couldn’t of done it without redy2drive!

John is awesome. Absolutely awesome. After having difficulty with a previous instructor, the techniques not sticking in my mind and losing confidence I was recommended John. Easily one of the best decisions I’ve made as John’s approach to learning is fantastic, calm and relaxed. His techniques are simple and easy to remember and you feel 100% confident when driving/learning with him. Thanks to John, I passed my test today with only 2 minors and I couldn’t be happier. I’ll be recommending him to anyone I know looking to learn. If you are considering learning with Redy2Drive, you won’t regret it at all.

In short, I could not recommend someone more. No matter how nervous you are, you’ll be talked through everything until it’s second nature. John is incredibly professional but keeps you relaxed with a friendly attitude and a good sense of humour! I never once felt like I was asked to do something I couldn’t do, but I was always pushed to do my best. Brilliant introductory offer and every penny is well worth it!
