“I found Karen to be very friendly and relaxed”

I was looking for a driving school with good online reviews and price. I got a recommendation from a friend about JHDS. Learning to drive was slightly harder than I thought it would be. I found Karen to be very friendly and relaxed during lessons and was easy to learn to drive with.

“Chris’ teaching methods were very effective and easy to understand”

Recommendations, friendly and nice instructors were all important criteria to me when I was looking for a driving school. Price and pass rates were also important. My sister passed 1st time with the school so I knew they were good.

I found my lessons much more enjoyable than I thought they would be and I found myself finding things easy to get the hang of. Chris’ teaching methods were very effective and easy to understand.

I would defiantly recommend the school as I was very happy with everything and I’m sure my friends would be too. Everything seemed great to me. Thank you so much.

“Seeing demos & re-watching live footage on the iPad was really helpful”

I chose JHDS from a trusted recommendation from someone who was in a similar situation to myself with young children starting school. I had a very restricted time to learn due to child care so availability and location were important to me.

I was anxious and nervous but John made me see I just needed to focus on each step before moving onto the next. I found Johns teaching methods easily accessible. Seeing demos & re-watching live footage on the iPad was really helpful to make changes & improvements to my driving.

I would definitely recommend the school. As a more mature person learning to drive, you want to know that your driving instructor can make you feel at ease & not worry too much about making mistakes.

 “JHDS is by far the best! Everything was 5 stars”

The most important criteria to me when I was looking for a driving school was good online reviews particularly from anxious drivers. Also, a school with a good reputation was important.  I have held a driving licence in the USA for many years but I was very nervous to start with but Chris was a perfect instructor for me. He is very methodical in his approach and I knew I would be ready for the test with his help. I liked knowing what we would be working on during the next lesson.

I would recommend the driving school as I have been to other schools and JHDS is by far the best! Everything was 5 stars

“I never thought I would pass my driving test, let alone with a clean sheet (zero faults)!! “

The most important criteria for me when choosing a driving school was that I wanted a patient, friendly instructor who was able to fit my lessons around my work schedule.
Learning with John was significantly better than the first time I had lessons. His methods were excellent. Very patient, clear and calming. It made learning to drive much more enjoyable than my previous experience.

I would defiantly recommend the school as my driving experience with John made something that I hated doing enjoyable. Having such clear explanations really helped.

There is literally nothing I would of changed about my experience with John Harvey Driving School.

Thank you so much for all your help, I never thought I would pass my driving test, let alone with a clean sheet (zero faults)!!

I have recently passed my driving test first time and I am so grateful to Dave, for building my confidence as a driver and always making me feel at ease.

“I always enjoyed my lessons and found it a really friendly experience”

When searching for driving schools I looked for good reviews from other customers, the cost of lessons and the availability of lessons around school and sport activities.

I found leaning a bit confusing to begin with but with Johns help I felt that I picked it up quickly.

John was always calm, to the point which I found reassuring especially in the early stages of my learning process.

I always enjoyed my lessons and found it a really friendly experience.

Adam Lee-Browne – Canterbury

Melanie Hoare

“I’m so much more confident now”

I changed instructors after failing my first test, and it made such a difference!

Matt was a great instructor, and really focussed on helping me understand the roads better and how to be a safer driver rather than just getting me to jump through hoops to pass the test.

He focussed on helping me drive slower and more controlled, I’m so much more confident now.

Melanie Hoare – Herne Bay

Mac Love

“The cost and the hours to suit me around college were important”

One of the most important criteria for me when looking for a driving instructor was that they instruct well. Also, the cost and the hours to suit me around college were important.

“Johns teaching methods were easily to understand”

The most important criteria for me was to have trusted recommendations from a friend who was in a similar situation to me who also had young children. I was very restricted to when I could have lessons so the availability and location of lessons were important.

Johns teaching methods were easily to understand. Seeing demos and re-watching live footage of my driving on the Ipad was really helpful,  allowing me to make changes and improvements to my driving. I was anxious and nervous but John made me see that I just needed to focus on each step before moving onto the next one.

“I passed with Zero driver faults. Five Stars!”

The most important criteria for me when choosing a driving school was they have a good reputation and pass rate. Also, the price and length was important.

Learning was more enjoyable than I was expecting because of the relaxed atmosphere with John.

His teaching methods were very helpful especially being able to watch what I did on the IPad and the interactive simulations for teaching how to do certain things.

I have already recommended the driving school to friends as it was a very enjoyable, friendly and reliable service that I received. I passed with Zero driver faults. Five Stars!

“Chris was amazing, calm and relaxed”

I chose the driving school as they were well recommended and had a good price. Also they was very popular very well rated locally.

Chris was amazing, I’ve struggled for a very long time with having anxiety and depression. He was amazing and he made my experience a lot easier

Chris’ teaching methods were brilliant, we covered everything we could possible cover and the mock test is a great idea.

I would definitely recommend you to anyone as it was a great service, no trouble at all. The lessons fitted in with my busy work schedule and Chris was amazing calm and relaxed but still got me to where I needed to be.

There is nothing to improve, all in all brilliant 5 star experience.

Alexandra Millard

“Karen was very thorough and clear and she was always calm”

The most important criteria for me when looking for driving lessons was good recommendations and that there was a female Instructor available.

Whilst learning to drive I found that it takes time for things to become automatic. I found Karen’s teaching to be very thorough and clear and she was always calm.

Chelsea O'Brien

“Every lesson was fun and you will always come away felling accomplished”

The most important criteria for me was to have structured lessons and to get a great learning experience for the money I pay. Also, to have a good relationship with my instructor and enjoy myself during lessons.

I didn’t expect to get through so fast and I didn’t expect to take in as much knowledge as I did. Matt’s calm nature always kept me reassured that I was making progress. I appreciated being allowed to make mistakes first and then being taught to correct them. There was never any pressure. It was also very beneficial to know why we do things instead of just doing them.

I have recommended Matt to my friends and will keep doing so. Every lesson was fun and you will always come away felling accomplished. After my lessons I found myself teaching drivers things they didn’t know

Callum Deacon

“Chris used easy to follow instructions with good methods with life long lessons”

One of the most important factors when i was choosing a Driving School was the rating against other schools. Also they had to be a reliable firm who were very quick to respond when i called.

I found learning to drive a very good experience. I found my instructors methods of teaching excellent. Chris used easy to follow instructions with good methods with life long lessons.

I would recommend Chris as i passed with zero faults, this really showed the detail in which my instructor put in showing that nothing was left to chance.

Sarah Bowman

“Karen was very receptive to how i wanted to learn and very patient”

Two of the most important things that mattered to me when booking driving lessons was previous customer reviews and the price of lessons. Learning to drive was very interesting. Karen was much more informative about the mechanics than I expected.

Her instructor methods were great. She was very receptive to how i wanted to learn and very patient.

I’ve already recommended a friend who has also just passed first time. Karen was brilliant. I passed with ZERO faults! Thank You

I enjoyed my lessons with Matt very much. He was much better than with my previous instructor. I had a good laugh with him. His teaching was easy to understand and very helpful.

I left my previous school as it was hard to get lessons booked in and i only drove 20 minutes out of an hour. With Matt he was helpful, good fun, explained things so I could understand and i got a lot of driving time in every lesson

Jack Trevelyan

He has a talent with people and his approach is easy to understand

The most important thing that I was looking for in an instructor was the quality of the knowledge that was being passed on to me. Price, quality for price and the instructor’s attitude were also important.

I thought learning would be boring but it turned out to be fun and enjoyable. Matt’s teaching methods were amazing. He has a talent with people and his approach is easy to understand in an informative yet comfortable manner.

Jana Puskoriute

I felt that I was taught to drive and that the aim just wasn’t just to pass the test

When looking for a driving school I wanted an instructor that would really teach me to drive and not just take my money. Being from another country I needed an instructor who would speak clearly and was calm and patient.

During my lessons Karen always asked if I understood what we were aiming to achieve which I found really helpful.

I felt that I was taught to drive and that the aim just wasn’t just to pass the test

Jana Puskoriute

Rebecca Dvitt

His honest and genuine feedback meant I trusted his assessment

I wanted to pass my test quickly and learn with a local reliable company, not a national school. I read the reviews of various different companies because I wanted an instructor I could trust.

Ilias tailored the lessons to my level of experience. He is an excellent instructor who explained things clearly and concisely. He identified the areas for improvement and dedicated a specific amount of time to these. His honest and genuine feedback meant I trusted his assessment. He was reliable and accommodating. I highly recommend him.

Rebecca Devitt

Sophie Schofield

I wanted a good price, flexible times for lessons, high pass rate and great online review

When looking for driving lessons I wanted a good price, flexible times for lessons, high pass rate and great online review.

I would defiantly recommend the school as my driving experience was better than I hoped for and was with a knowledgeable and friendly instructor

Rachel Thorpe-Blair

John is an amazingly patient instructor

One of the most important factors that made me choose the driving school was price. As I am a student I needed affordable lessons.

I was very happy with my learning experience. It was much better than I expected it would be.

John is an amazingly patient instructor who explains things over and over again if needed. His calm demeanour made my lessons easier. At the end of every lesson I felt confident more confident. John is a reliable instructor whose patience makes learning to drive enjoyable

Rachel Thorpe-Blair

Danielle Curtis

I felt that my learning was at the correct pace for me

The most important factor that I was looking for was a driving school that was available to cover the time of my test that was already booked when I moved to Canterbury. Also, the price of both individual and bulk lesson was very important to me.

I felt that my learning was at the correct pace for me and that I was able to work on the things that I chose to.

Karen’s teaching methods were very good. During my lessons with another driving school I was not given a driver record booklet. Using the booklet helped me see what I was working towards.

I would recommend the school because they made me feel more confident as a driver and I was taught on all type of roads. I had never driven on dual carriageways or country lanes before I had lessons with Karen

Danielle Curtis

Igor Panaghiu

I found Karol to be very flexible with timing for my lessons

Karen is a credit to the team

I could clearly see that she cared about my driving. I have already recommended Karen. She is a credit to the team

Briony Ellis

Daisy Warner

Everyone from the school I had contact with was very helpful, reassuring and friendly

The most important criteria when choosing a school was the price. As a student it was crucial I found a fair priced school. Value for money it certainly was! Other factors such as good reviews and recommendations were important, both of which I found outstanding.

Learning to drive was much more enjoyable and rewarding than I could ever have imagined. I feel I picked it up quite quickly with Karol’s help. The use of the app’s on the Ipad helped my learning.

Karol’s methods were extremely effective. He always remained calm and would do everything he could to help me. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons as he made them fun and less daunting at all times. I always looked forward to my lessons with him.

Without a shadow of a doubt I would recommend the school to anyone. Everyone from the school I had contact with was very helpful, reassuring and friendly. I couldn’t of asked for anything more. A very professional service

Becky Gibbs

Having methods that work every time will be great for future driving

A driving school with a good reputation a good reviews were most important to me. Finding a instructor who was friendly and had the ability to make you feel relaxed and comfortable were also important.

I really liked having the visual images on the Ipad in the early stages, this made things very clear to me. Also the in car camera helped show me where I was going wrong. John was always clear and calming. Having methods that work every time will be great for future driving.

I would recommend John as he was a great instructor who made me feel calm behind the wheel and really wanted me to succeed

Becky Gibbs

Dominic Andrews

Daniel White

Arthur Taggart

I always felt confident that I was being taught correctly

I was looking for a driving school with good quality teaching and who would allow me to be a safe driver and not necessarily just teach me to pass quickly. Other things important to were Price, availability, and a nice instructor who would not shout at every mistake I made.

Learning to drive took longer than I expected but I always felt confident that I was being taught correctly. I found Karol’s teaching methods good. The use of the Ipad is good at the start of a new subject and he always finished the lesson with a summary and a target for the next lesson.

Karol is a very good instructor, he was very flexible with lessons times and always explained things clearly. I would defiantly recommend him to my friends

Arthur Taggart

Ollie Rowles

Karen’s teaching was great. Her calm and clear approach gave me the confidence to drive

One of the most important things I was looking for when choosing a driving school was that they had a high level of teaching. Also they was willing to fit me in after my working hours or at the weekend.

When I had lessons with my previous instructor I was given strict but not very helpful instruction. With Karen I was given calm, accurate instruction.
Karen’s teaching was great. Her calm and clear approach gave me the confidence to drive.

I would 100% recommend the driving school because of the out of office hours they can provide and because of the quality teaching and service

Ollie Rowles

Sarah Williams

Passing my test with John was an eye opening and brilliant experience

The most important criteria for me was having someone who was calm, patient and would help me reach the next level of driving, especially my manoeuvers. As I am currently studying for a degree I really needed someone who could fit me in as I had such a tight schedule with lectures. John did this!

I had previously had a bad experience with a driving instructor but completing my driving lessons and passing my test with John was an eye opening and brilliant experience.

The teaching methods used by JHDS are unfaultable. John took a calm and no pressure approach every single lesson and never got frustrated with me unlike my last instructor.

I would 100% recommend JHDS to all my friends. The whole experience was so enjoyable and I passed first time with only 4 driver faults.

Best driving school in Canterbury!! A 5 Star experience!

Sarah Williams

Francesca Bowers

I felt as though he actually cared about my progress

I chose the driving school as I was looking for an instructor who would make me feel relaxed and confident due to my confidence and driving being knocked in the past by my previous instructor. Being at University the flexibility of lessons as sometimes having to rearrange were important to me.

I found learning with John was much better compared to being with my last instructor. I felt as though he actually cared about my progress and was firm but in no way aggressive.

Even after I failed he was still patient and preserved with me and made sure to address any problems I had. Thank You. 🙂

I found my instructor to be well organised and very knowledgeable.

I was looking for a driving school with a high pass rate and good prices.

Learning to drive was a lot easier than I expected and also quicker. I put this down to the methods used as they was simple yet effective compared to my previous driving instructor.

Frances Sherwood

Mungo Bain

I would wholeheartedly recommend the school

One of the most important criteria’s that I looked for in a driving school was their availability and if they could fit me in around my working schedule.

John Harvey Driving School NOT being a major school was another important factor in me choosing them. I previously had a bad experience with the AA who seemed disinterested in teaching me, lacking an interest in me as a customer. Competitive pricing was a third factor.

My instructors methods were very good. He gave clear explanations, had a lot of patience and gave sufficient answers to all my questions.

I would wholeheartedly recommend the school. Good communication, good flexibility and in my case a good result.

Mungo Bain

Jo Addison

Would I recommend the school? Absolutely!

The most important criteria when looking for a driving school were, Good customer feedback, Professionalism of the instructors, quality vehicles and value for money.

I found that there was a lot more technical elements to driving throughout my driving lessons that I didn’t expect but I did find them to be more fun and enjoyable than I expected.

Would I recommend the school? Absolutely! The support I received went beyond just the driving lessons. There are recourses on the website to help you with every aspect of the work involved to get that licence.

Keerthika Viswanathan

I found Karol very patient, friendly, flexible and especially very supportive

I has so many lessons with another instructor before I found John Harvey Driving school that I desperately wanted someone who could encourage me to pass my test. I found this with Karol.

Learning was much more detailed than I expected and it wasn’t as easy as the Theory part. I learnt a lot from all the instructions given by Karol. His methods have a very strategic approach, he observed and understood my flaws and gave constructive feedback which made me to be able to realise my mistakes.

He was very knowledgeably about driving. Overall I found Karol very patient, friendly, flexible and especially very supportive. Comparing him to instructors I have had before, I must say that passing wouldn’t have been possible without all his support

Keerthika Viswanathan

Rebecca Isden

Teaching methods worked well for me as they helped me to progress

The good reviews and high pass rate were what I was looking for. Also the instructors availability, I wanted to have lessons every week.

Driving was harder than I first thought  and it took me a while to grasp it. But, John’s very effective teaching methods worked well for me as they helped me to progress.

I would recommend the school because at the beginning I thought I would never pass, but John kept my confidence up and kept patient with me throughout and I got the first time pass that I wanted!

Rebecca Isden

Kirsty Giles

I was recommended to the school by a friend in the village that passed with them

I was recommended to the school by a friend in the village that passed with them. I had struggled to understand things with my previous instructor but John helped me with these issues and made them seem easy.

I struggled for so many hours with my previous instructor that I never thought I would get certain parts of driving but I learnt really quickly with John’s methods.  Thanks

Kirsty Giles

Woody Mallion

Having good reviews online was a factor in choosing the Driving School

Being a small local company was the most important thing to me when looking for a driving school. I did try a bigger school but they gave me poor service and didn’t respond. Having good reviews online was also a factor in choosing John Harvey Driving School.

Learning to drive was more difficult that I thought with so many details to remember. I found the manoeuvres particularly hard. I found the teaching methods very clear and precise. John would me where I went wrong and how to improve things, going over the details thoroughly. He was always on time. Two hours lessons allowed me to get so much done in each session.

He will always stay calm, even when you might not be!

Woody Mallion

Chris Link

I passed first time with just one driver fault, If I can do that then so can you!

My girlfriend learnt to drive with John a few years ago and sung his praises so I thought why go elsewhere if she passed with him and is a great driver.

John was very relaxed and mainly let me get on with it and only spoke about driving when he needed to. I felt John was all about the practical side of the driving rather than stop, start, stop, start. This made it easier for me rather than having to take in all the theory as well.

John is a total professional. The content of the lessons was great and I had a very good overall experience.

I passed first time with just one driver fault, If I can do that then so can you!

Chris Link

Jules Landrieu

Had the expertise to allow me to quickly be driving independently

I first met John when the driving school was at an event at the Kent University.

I previously had driving lessons back home in France and thought adapting to learning in the UK would be easy, I was wrong!

Throughout my lessons John was very good, he remained calm when I was struggling with learning to drive on the left side of the road, and any faults I was making were seen immediately and correct through discussion and practice.

I would recommend the school because they was friendly and personal, built my confidence and had the expertise to allow me to quickly be driving independently.

Jules Landrieu

Jonathan Solley

I had a good learning to drive experience and would recommend the driving school to anyone

When I was looking for a driving instructor in Canterbury I made my choice to learn with John Harvey Driving School as John is a top grade instructor and I felt that he would help me pass first time.

Overall I felt that I had a good learning to drive experience and would recommend the driving school to anyone.

I understood driving concepts as opposed to just teaching me to pass the test

I received a driving lesson package for Christmas as my partner had looked at various driving schools and decided John Harvey Driving School was the most successful and reasonably priced. I am very happy they chose this school; from start to finish my experience was excellent.

My Learning experience was exhilarating; I thoroughly enjoyed the sense of freedom and independence being in the driving seat and always felt safe with John next to me. I had expected to feel scared of being in control of a vehicle but John constantly reassured me and let me gain confidence through expert teaching techniques.

John Harvey is a professional in every sense of the word. He was always prompt upon arriving and wouldn’t mind if I wanted to try and re-do a three-point turn at the end of my lesson just to make sure I nailed it. The use of an IPad during my lessons kept me engaged as John would often show me clips of the manoeuvre I was about to attempt. He would then compare it with recorded footage of my attempt and show me areas I needed to improve on. This was an excellent method of teaching as it showed my progress and really helped me see what I needed to change in order to master the manoeuvre in question.

I would, have and will continue to recommended John Harvey Driving school to my friends as I feel that I have learnt not only to pass my theory and driving test but how to be a safe and confident driver. John always went the extra mile to make sure I thoroughly learnt the manoeuvres and understood driving concepts as opposed to just teaching me to pass the test. I feel that John offered me a competitive lesson rate and was accommodating with payments. I am very grateful to John for teaching me to drive and I wish him and his company all the best in the future. Thanks John!!!

Johns methods are brilliant and I felt I learnt very quickly

After seeing my two sisters and brother all pass their driving test with John Harvey it seemed an obvious choice to learn with John. My learning to drive experience was great. Johns methods are brilliant and I felt I learnt very quickly. John is one of the nicest people you could meet and he made me feel at ease from the 1st lesson. I would recommend the school because I know how good John is and I know anyone who learns with him will pass their test. Thank You John, you are the best!” Ryan Marsh, Canterbury.

I was looking for a driving school that could accommodate my ‘not so flexible’ schedule in a short period of time and JHDS was able to do this. My expectations were more than met. I went to the school with the main aim of passing my driving test but in the end I got a 1st time pass but more importantly lifelong driving skills. The frequent debriefing sessions when there was a weakness were very useful. The instructions were clear which made it easier to remember when driving. Would I recommend the school, Defiantly, YES!

I would recommend the school because it is a great way to learn and the instructors are friendly

I chose John Harvey Driving School because they have a great Website, really good pass rate and a good reputation. I felt John supported me well when I was finding things hard and when I was getting frustrated with myself. The teaching methods were great and very straight forward. John was patient and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I would recommend the school because it is a great way to learn and the instructors are friendly, knowledgeable and good at keeping the most nervous of drivers calm! All this helped me to pass 1st time. Thank You.

Very informative and easy to understand

My driving lessons went much better than I expected. I found Johns teaching methods very informative and easy to understand. Due to this is was able to pass my driving test first time with only 4 driving faults and after 26 hours tuition!
