“Amazing Driving School!”

Written on: 19/12/2014 by Abbey370 (1 review written)

Lots of driving schools were recommended to me but I chose drive Johnson primarily for their introductory price offer. I couldn't believe how thorough my instructor was when I met him, there wasn't a single thing he missed out. I didn't mind how much it cost me after the introduction as I knew I was getting my money's worth. I couldn't fault my instructor and he saw me through to the end when I passed. I have recommended drive Johnson to my friends learning to drive as they are a great school… Read Full Review

“Not impressed at all”

Written on: 22/11/2014 by kamil1984 (1 review written)

My wife took 20 lessons with an instructor and was not pleased at all. She was specifically instructed to practice maneuvers, instead my wife was mainly practicing driving round Bletchley. She was shown parallel parking only once on which she ultimately failed the test. Other than that the amount of cancellations was ridiculous (totally in the region of 10), and normally 5min before the lesson was about to start. When we complained we were assigned a different instructor and paid for another… Read Full Review

“Strange advice”

Written on: 12/10/2014 by jeanpowell (1 review written)

I haven't used this company for driving lessons and don't know anyone who has - my review concerns an instructor's behaviour behind the wheel, or rather in this case, one of his pupils on his instruction. Going along the A45 in Northampton coming up towards an exit a car that had been travelling just behind me on in the outside (fast) lane suddenly pulled in front of me THEN indicated, the car being a DriveJohnsons vehicle. I was doing 45mph on the slow down to the exit, so presumably the… Read Full Review

“Great instructor! Great driving school. ”

Written on: 01/10/2014 by Kathryn1988 (1 review written)

I have tried learning to drive many times and each instructor i had I just didn't get on with the way of teaching. Drive Johnsons instructor made me feel so relaxed and I really enjoyed learning with him. I would recommend anyone who is about to begin lessons or who has struggled with instructors in the past to get in touch! You will nt be disappointed. I was rather nervous when I began my lessons but he built up my confidence and helped me over come my fears of being behind the wheel… Read Full Review

“Passed first time thanks to my instructor”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by Dodd292 (1 review written)

started lessons in May and passed this week first time. My instructor was brilliant, directions and instructions were clear. I had two hours lessons as i could learn more and they flew by! I would definitely recommend drivejohnsons to a friend. They have a record book to keep track of what you have done and how well it's going as well as a booklet with information on how to perform each manoeuvre and other tips. Great company, thank you!… Read Full Review

“Andrew Hayward is the best instructor ever ”

Written on: 25/08/2014 by Kristian401 (1 review written)

I've had two driving instructors with drive Johnsons but one was the best! He made my lessons very worth while, he was very informative and would work with me at something till I found it easy! I had many bad habits when I drove and he was able to stop them in very little time due to him being such a good instructor I have recommended himto many of my friends and my family and will do for as long as he carries on in this industry He is a real asset to drive Johnsons and a amazing driving… Read Full Review

“Couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor!”

Written on: 16/08/2014 by carlita (1 review written)

Me, my friends and family all thought I would never drive - I was too nervous, too clumsy and any attempts at driving ended in tears. At 26 I decided to try again, I had a few informal practises in industrial estates with family then on my first lesson with my Drive Johnson's instructor, Ifet Hussain, she got me to drive out of my driveway and to Bletchley! After 26 hours of lessons I passed my test first time! She was the perfect combination of firm but funny and chilled and was always happy… Read Full Review

“Comfortably the best driving school around”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by AdamHutchingson (1 review written)

I just want to say a massive thank you to my instructor who helped me pass first time. On top of that, I would like to thank the driveJohnson's office team. They got me an earlier test date, so I could take my test sooner. When i booked my first lesson, the office team also spent around 15 minutes asking me about my requirements, so they could choose the best instructor suited to my needs. They allocated me a spot on instructor and there was no looking back for me. Basically, if you want to… Read Full Review

“ terrible organisation and customer service”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by sja46 (1 review written)

do not trust what has been written in website. no plan, no organisation and terrible customer service. you pay first and then you have to follow and contact them continuously without any success. I never recommend them to anybody. there is no slot plan that you can choose your instructor or date and time. they do not have enough instructors that you can plan and arrange with them. there is no choice, you have to accept what they offer! they charged me an extra £17 for learning material which… Read Full Review

Sort your English out mate, they probably couldn't understand you. lol. This company smashes any other driving schools pass rate. I've literally referred 10 of my mates to driveJohnson's and they have all passed first time. I passed my test first time with them, thanks to the office they even got me an earlier driving test.
5 out of 5 - Mint Company !

first, learn to be polite! 2nd when they charged me they did not complaint about my English! 3rd, have you seen the pass rate yourself?4th, there was only one comment since Nov 2013 , what happened after my review, the defenders appeared!
I have documents for every of my claims, do you? still we are waiting for their response after 2 weeks, while they mentioned" Guaranteed 24 hr response"! and operator promised 48hr response!

That stupid response smacks of someone in the company or attached to it. The odds on any company coming out tops every time are slim or non existent. If you were really a genuine customer why worry about someone who has a problem and gives DriveJohnson one star and an honest review? And mate, when you say 'sort your English out mate' that's good English is it?

I passed my driving test with just 2 minors - both of which were silly little mistakes, but thanks to drive Johnson's and my instructor I passed first time - so happy and would definitely recommend to anyone want to learn and pass their driving text fast and with class, I was with a different driving school before drive Johnson's who really put me off driving but he gave me my confidence back and got me through my test, I'm now enjoying my freedom and owe it all to him and drivejohnsons… Read Full Review
