After two attempts at driving lessons over 20 years including two failed tests, I strongly believed that driving was beyond me and I had very little confidence in myself. I then met John Guest back in September of last year, on the recommendation of a neighbour. John is gentle, mild-mannered and has endless patience. If I didn’t grasp something, even after several attempts, John would stay calm and try different methods (armed with iPad) to help me understand. He is flexible and accommodating and was happy to arrange lessons around my commitments. Over the course of a few months, I felt my confidence was improving and when I became more comfortable with driving and as the test date approached John allowed me to suggest areas where I felt I needed further tuition or practice. He always said that he believed I could do it but his biggest barrier was convincing me that I could do it. I passed my test on Tuesday this week (first attempt with John) and I feel I owe much of this to John, his encouragement and his method and style of tuition. John also has a wonderful sense of humour which makes the lessons all the more entertaining (‘it is a dual carriageway - not a Julie carriageway!’).
