Learning to drive took longer than I thought it would do. My instructors methods were good and John always tried to emphasize that I knew what I was doing and that I should trust my own judgement. I felt comfortable during my lessons and they was always fun.
I chose John Harvey Driving School as I thought the ‘Try Us & See’ deal was a great offer. After my first 10 hours I chose to continue as John was a really good instructor. I had driven an automatic before but wanted to try a manual car. Learning to drive in a manual was easier than I thought it would be, this was helped by John’s easy to understand and follow teaching methods.I would recommend the school as John is a fun instructor and his car is so nice to drive!
John taught my wife to drive and I chose him after she passed first time. She was always very impressed with his teaching methods and his overall professionalism. I was expecting a lot from learning to drive with John based on my wife’s excitement after her lessons so when I got my chance I was very impressed and was like ‘Wow’! John has a very effective, easy to understand and simple method of teaching. He is a good communicator and every lesson is a new and different challenge which will put you in stead to pass your test. Overall, John was very professional, very honest, always punctual and very knowledgeable as an instructor.

In addition, to the reasons I have already stated, I would recommend the driving school because John was very friendly, approachable and understanding which helped me to be a more confident and relaxed driver.
When I was learning to drive I didn’t think that I would enjoy my lessons as much as I did. John always seemed friendly, professional and reliable which is what I was looking for in a driving instructor.

John keeping me calm helped keep me calm!

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.

He is easy to get on with and allows you to go at your own pace but encourages you to progress all the time.

When looking online for driving schools in Canterbury, John Harvey Driving School seemed the most professional, with a good rate. When I rang you up they was very quick to get back to me which was very helpful.
Anne Vincent was a very good driving instructor! I would know as she is the fourth one I’ve been with! She is very good at explaining how to correct the mistakes being made, and she was very encouraging when I was driving. Her teaching methods were very useful, I couldn’t fault them, I’d learnt how to do everything but she improved the skills I had already learnt, making me a better driver.
I have actually recommended your driving school to my friend, She will be giving you guys a call. Thanks for your help again!
The reason why I chose John Harvey driving school was through a recommendation from a friend who had recently passed with the driving school. As I was new to the area I was keen to get a recommendation off someone who had only good things to say about the driving school.
I had originally had lessons previously eight years ago so I was a little bit rusty to say the least on my first lesson. But everything was explained clearly and in small steps at first, slowly building up lesson by lesson as my confidence grew. When I found out I would be moving out of the Country in a few weeks time, I had to up my lessons as I really wanted to pass my practical test before leaving.
My driving instructor John was more than accommodating with fitting in extra lessons to bring all my driving skills up to a high standard. Doing two hour lessons was definitely more beneficial for me as was suggested by the driving school on their website.
I would definitely recommend the John Harvey driving school to a friend as learning to drive was an enjoyable experience and I even had the confidence to do a motorway drive on the day I passed. I was very pleased with passing first time, thank you John Harvey driving school.
I chose John Harvey Driving School because they came highly recommended. Learning with John was not as scary as I expected and I found his teaching methods very good and I still use them and his little phrases when I am driving on my own. I would definitely recommend the driving school because John was very calm and easy to learn from. He was very flexible with fitting me in at times that suited me.
Thank You for your help.
I found John Harvey Driving School on the internet and choose them as they was able to fit lessons in at a convenient time for me. I had already learnt to drive back home but Learning to drive in this country was harder that I thought it would be. I found John’s teaching methods simply fantastic! He made things simple and covered everything I needed to know. I would absolutely recommend John Harvey Driving School. For me to pass 1st time, after not driving for 6 years whilst at University in Canterbury, it shows how good John is at what he does.
I chose the driving school because of the good price and nice car after seeing them at the Kent University Freshers Fayre. Learning to drive was much better than I expected, I never thought I’d be able to drive but now I have passed! John was very patient and encouraging. I really enjoyed learning to drive with him. I would definitely recommend John Harvey Driving School as he was a good teacher and doesn’t waste time and got me driving on my first lesson. I have already recommended him to my friend Chole.
I chose John Harvey Driving School because I was looking to learn in a different vehicle. I liked the idea of driving a French convertible, but also because I wanted to learn with an independent driving school. I saw the vehicle on the road decided to look it up. Learning to drive was exactly what I expected, if not more. A very pleasant and enjoyable experience throughout.
I was extremely satisfied with my instructor’s methods. He addressed all the issues that my previous driving school failed to address, and has always been able to break down his teaching method into small and clear steps, which made a steady and fast progression possible. Setting up a solid foundation of good driving skills and habits for a lifetime of driving.
I would most definitely recommend the driving school to a friend. The teaching method was suited to my needs and John my instructor was friendly. I made a fast progression and have managed to correct many of my bad driving habits in only a matter of hours. The John Harvey Driving School method of teaching is a fast and effective and will teach you how to drive at your own pace. The instructor is thorough in his method and does not leave any issues unattended. They are always corrected on the spot, which I have found to be an effective learning method.

Learning to drive with John Harvey Driving School was better than I expected, he took time to explain things and didn’t rush at all and I felt very comfortable driving with John. John’s methods where brilliant he really does makes you feel more at ease when learning to drive. I would recommend John to my friends because he really does go the extra mile to make you feel better about driving. His teaching is first class , he takes his time in explaining things and his pass rate is brilliant too.
I was cautious about which driving instructor to use, so getting some feedback from other people was very useful. I could see that John Harvey Driving School had put effort into the website and the pictures and customer reviews were a great help in choosing JHDS. I had already learnt with a different instructor. Unfortunately, I had failed twice so this was an attempt to learn differently this time. John tackled the areas I was apprehensive in on the road fast and efficiently, but most importantly in a relaxed manner. That is what made a tremendous difference. John was very efficient. I recall being very reluctant to go onto dual carriageways and roundabouts when I started with JHDS. With John’s help and instruction he built my confidence so when the test came they were areas I felt confident with. He taught me to do my manoeuvres safely and in my own time. I would recommend John Harvey Driving School because John is a great instructor and also very relaxed and I think that is important when you are learning to drive. I passed 1st Time with John! He also laughed at my jokes, that was nice of him!
During me lessons I learnt much more than I expected I would. John made things easy to understand and was always friendly and professional. John was very good a spotting hazards and making me aware of them so I always felt safe and confident whilst driving with him next to me. I would recommend John because he is genuinely well experienced but also calm and a nice person, with who’s help I passed my test first time. He also has the best looking driving instructors car in Canterbury!
My learning to drive experience was better than I expected, a really good experience! John’s teaching methods were brilliant! I felt at ease and confident whilst driving. I liked that everything was explained in theory first rather than I was just thrown into the situation. I LOVED my driving experience, Thank You!
I choose Convertible Driving School because they was recommended to me after I had lessons with another instructor and failed my test. Learning to drive took longer than I expected and the test wasn’t easy. With the help of my Driving instructor John Harvey, who was calm patient, we focused on the ares that I needed to make me feel more confident. I would definitely recommend Convertible Driving School and John Harvey is a 5* instructor! Thank you again
I was recommended to Convertible Driving School by a friend who passed with them. My driving instructor, John Harvey, was very informative and precise. The methods I was taught by him were clear and easy to follow and remember. I would definitely recommend John and Convertible Driving school. He is a calm and patient driving instructor who taught me the right methods and instructions to pass my practical driving test in canterbury and become a safe and confident driver.
I choose Convertible Driving School as I liked the car and the website had good feedback. I had already had lessons from another driving instructor but wanted a second opinion on where I was going wrong as I kept failing my practical driving test. John always offered constructive criticism and I found him to be really approachable with areas I struggled in. John was always happy to break things down and I never felt rushed nor like he was going too slow. I would recommend John as I felt CDS is a reliable company who want you to pass rather than just take your money. I loved my lessons, my instructor and the fact I passed 1st time with John!
Woohoo passed my driving test today!!! Anyone in the Canterbury area looking for driving lessons go with John! He is a fantastic instructor!
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.
