I passed my driving test today after around 5 months of lessons!!John was an absolutely fantastic instructor and was very easy to get along with. He always ensures the learner understands fully what they are doing and has great teaching methods. So i would just like to say a massive thank you to john for all your support and getting me through the test!!

I passed my test yesterday (2nd attempt)!!, this was after nearly 20 years of on/off lessons with various driving schools. I could never seem to find one I liked. This time last year I contacted Greengates and started my driving lessons with John. He is patient, understanding and supportive. Thank You John. If anyone is thinking of starting to drive, don't dither around pick up the phone and ask for John. JUST DO IT!!

today 31/1/2011 i passed my driving test just as john my driving instructor said i would, being 59 years old this was a daunting task made easy by my driving instructor john.nothing was made difficult i learnt everything along the way when he knew i was ready listened to my instructor as to when i was ready and went ahead and passed.john has a way of putting everything into place so you as a learner can understand why to do and how to do,but more to the point to drive safely. thankyou john

WOW! what a fantastic driving school this is. I passed my theory test on Monday 11/04/11 and yesterday I passed my practical !!! 14/04/11 after only 4 hours driving practice with Naz. I could not have done it without his expert guidance. He went beyond the call of duty and spent more time with me until he was happy that I could pass. So happy I found Greengates Driving School; don't think I could have passed had it not been for him! THANK YOU SO MUCH Naz!

Passed my driving test, all thanks to John. A great instructor and very easy to understand. Best instructor I have ever had. my previous instructor was in it for the money and made everything more complicated then it had to be but with John everything was so easy to understand and remember. It took me just a few months with John to pass. Trust in what John teaches you and you definitely will pass. thanks a lot John:).

On the 11/04/11 I failed my test after 18 months of learning with an instructor , alot of the time taking two lessons a week . When I failed I asked my instructor for a lesson that week so that I could learn by mistakes and get straight on with it . My instructor refused saying thst he was too busy to fit me in and recommending that i don't go for another test for a while . I wasn't happy with this so I looked on the intranet and found Greengates and John . John took me through my test as my old instructor should have done .There was alot of work to do but John worked through each area with me patiently and systematicaly . I have then continued with him and passed my test yesterday, just under three months later . I can highly recommend John to anyone, his calm ,'' it's just driving approach'' really works . At 44 I found myself to be a very nervous driver and John really calms you down and gives you the strength to achieve. Although they may be that bit more expensive than other driving schools, if I had gone to them first I could have saved myself nearly £2,000!!! Thank you John for all your help and support.

After an injury to my right arm I thought I would be unable to drive anymore,my rehabilitation meant that I had not driven for approx 5 years.It would be extremely difficult for me to drive a manual so I decided to take lessons in an automatic vehicle. I can recommend John as an excellent instructor who in my case at least has required extreme patience.My confidence in my ability to handle a car has been completely restored to the point where I have now bought a new car. Thanks John!

I passed my test a week ago on APRIL FOOLS DAY (01/04/2014) Just want to say huge thank you to John. The help and support given was absolutely excellent and really appreciated. John is one of the most patient and easy going driving instructors I have ever come across. His teaching methods are fab and easy to understand – if you don’t understand he’ll get out his book and draw you a diagram – I always found that helped! If anyone wants to take driving lessons on an automatic car, don’t hesitate to give John a ring. Will definitely recommend the driving school to others. Finally, just want to wish John and everyone else at Greengates Automatic Driving School the very best for the future.
