I can’t recommend John enough for helping me regain my confidence behind the wheel again, and finally helping me get to driving test ready where I passed! I have been driving on and off for 5 years in over 3 different countries, and as a result my confidence and driving ability was at an all time low- I was convinced I couldn’t do it. However after seeing the amount of recommendations, I gave it a try and by the first lesson I was already back on my feet and driving again! His engaging and supportive instruction not only provided me with the knowledge of becoming a competent driver, but above all else- a safe driver and I couldn’t be more thankful or recommend John highly enough.

I started my lessons as a very anxious driver with no experience and a serious lack of confidence. John not only ensured I pass my test, he has also contributed to reducing my anxiety in all aspects with his calm and reassuring demeanourツ and exceptional driving skill and knowledge. I cannot recommend John enough, and can guarantee you will come away from lessons a safe and happy driver!

John is a brilliant driving instructor. He has vast knowledge of driving and is a very kind and calm person. He makes you feel very comfortable straight away and he makes you gain confidence as the lessons go on. I wouldn窶冲 choose anyone else to get me through my test than John and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a very reliable and patient driving instructor who you can have a laugh with.

As someone living with a long term illness that often gives me fatigue, I needed a very understanding & patient instructor & John was just that from day 1.ツ It quickly started to feel like learning to drive with a friend & my lessons were always enjoyable & fun & he made everything so easy to understand.ツ ツJohn has a great sense of humour & a way of making you feel at ease, which really helps during those nervous moments!ツ I passed first time with just two minors! Really could not recommend him enough, he窶冱 a great teacher & I feel very lucky that I had such a great experience learning to drive. Thanks John, i窶冤l always look back fondly on our lessons!

The first thing for me to say is that I couldn窶冲 recommend John highly enough!
He is an incredible driving instructor – calm, patient, encouraging and able to build real confidence. My daughter was nervous and doubted her abilities so often. John supported and encouraged her, always getting her to progress, however small the steps. The result? She passed her practical test first time with ZERO minors!!
Thank you John, you are a total star!

I would definitely recommend John Clift Automatic driving school for being your driving instructor. First of all he is very experienced and certainly knows what he is talking about. Most importantly he is overall just a nice guy very friendly and can also have a laugh which is good especially if you are a nervous driver. He also tries his hardest to fit you in even if he is busy. I used a different driving instructor before and failed my driving test with them I then changed to John and passed first time, arguably one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I want to say a massive thank you to John for his patience, time and belief he dedicated to me. After having a real confidence blow when trying to learn how to drive previously, I cannot express the worry and doubt I felt sitting behind the wheel again. John helped me hugely with my confidence and really had the belief in my abilities, helping me progress and learn on a weekly basis. Learning how to drive is my biggest accomplishment yet, more so than earning a degree! Thanks to Johns accommodating nature and witty sense of humour he has taught me to be a safe driver, giving me so much more freedom!

What can I say about John, he is an all round lovely man as well as a fantastic driving instructor. I would not hesitate in recommending him.
Prior to meeting John I had worked my way through a number of instructors, some unprofessional, bad tempered. I felt as if I would never learn to drive, my confidence was at an all time low. From the outset John instilled confidence in me and helped me to break things down and not over complicate driving, thus lessening my anxiety.
Johns ability to be dynamic in his approach to teaching the mechanics of driving is extraordinary. He really identifies with any weak points the pupil may have and has a very empathic approach and works with not against you
