Hi, I'm John Burnett, an independent driving instructor based in Taunton. I have been teaching people to drive since 2002 and have helped over 600 learners get themselves on the road with an 82% first time pass rate.

I am passionate about my profession and my aim is to make sure that my instruction enables everyone I teach to become safe drivers on our ever increasingly congested road networks. 


I have almost 40 years driving experience which includes driving in the UK and in Europe. I also have experience of driving with trailers and HGV vehicles and in extreme weather conditions. I try to pass on as much of my knowledge as possible to my pupils to enable them to enjoy happy motoring for the years ahead.
