Are you looking for driving lessons in Canterbury, Folkestone, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Dover or Deal?

Over the last 15 years we have built a solid reputation for excellent customer service in conjunction with delivering results. We currently provide manual driving lessons to local pupils living in Canterbury, Folkestone, Herne Bay, Whitstable, Dover & Deal every week.

Our driving lessons are fully structured with a firm aim and objective of what is to be achieved during the lesson. Once we have established the learning goals for the session with the student and checked they have a good theory knowledge for that topic, we then set a plan to achieve maximum learning during the driving lesson.

Our driving instructors are highly skilled in coaching during lessons. They will give full, easy to understand assistance when required or simply use prompts to help guide to a successful outcome. The instructors aim is to transfer responsibility to the student to enable totally independent driving.

Using this system makes passing the driving test far more of a formality, as students will already have mastered independent driving before the big day resulting in far less driving test day nerves and giving the student much more confidence and as a result.

We don’t believe in gimmicks or unrealistic promises just high quality lessons and customer service.

What our customers have to say…

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.

I passed first time

I would definitely recommend the John Harvey Diving School. I had Chris as my instructor and I passed first time. He was very patient and always had plenty of hints and tips to help improve anything I was struggling with. Thanks a lot!

He is a great teacher, very reliable and very friendly

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.

He is a great teacher, very reliable and very friendly… Would highly recommend him and encourage anyone who is looking into learning how to drive to use the John Harvey driving school.
