What our customers have to say….

I am 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

I was recommended to John Harvey Driving School by a friend. I thought learning to drive would be really scary but it wasn’t thanks to John’s teaching methods.

He was always very helpful and calm so I didn’t panic. I would recommend the driving school because the teaching methods work and I felt relaxed whilst learning.

Evie Thompson, Herne Bay

I saw a post on Facebook about a recent driving test pass with John Harvey Driving School so I decided to look into their pass rate which I found out was high.

I had driving lessons in the past but was unsuccessful on the test. I found John’s lessons and instruction to be enjoyable and easy to get to grips with. He is easy to get on with and allows you to go at your own pace but encourages you to progress all the time
