Why learn with an independent instructor?

Franchised driving schools are everywhere and constantly recruiting instructors who are passed quickly through training. It's important to consider that although their lessons may be cheap in the short term, you'll be missing out on the skills and experience of an independent instructor. 


This can end up costing you more in the long term when costs are recouped by encouraging you to take more lessons than may be necessary.


Although John will ensure you become a safe, considerate driver, he understands that many drivers are keen to get on the road as quickly as possible and will guide you to your test at a sensible pace.
