Horrible agency.

Horrible agency. Really bad, unprofessional, drivers cancel last minute all the time. Admin are useless, especially the supervisor. They take your money and refuse to refund even when you havent done the lesson. Drivers are terrible. just avoid avoid avoid avoid. I learnt nothing and they stole my money.

Absolutely awful experience, strongly not recommended.

Absolutely awful experience, strongly not recommended. I have initially booked my lesson for one of Monday mornings, well in advance of that date. However, it was canceled and I have to call Drive Johnsons to make a new appointment by myself. The lesson was arranged for next Wednesday, but no one has come or notified me about any changes. I have reached out to five different operators in the school, and they all promised to get back to me with an update regarding to my lesson plan, however, I haven't heard from any of them at all. One of them provided me with my instructor's phone number, but the instructor cannot be reached by this number as well. Eventually, I spent four days arguing with them with no result, no lessons were arranged and no one got back to me with any update ot apologies. It was quite frustrating, considering the fact that I have taken that week off from my work in order to get driving lessons. I am completely not satisfied with their service, especially given I have already paid in advance of my first lesson. I requested the reimbursement of my payment, and hope to get my money back, but I am not convinced that I would be able to receive anything from this company.

I would absolutely recommend DriveJohnsons!

I would absolutely recommend DriveJohnsons!! My driving instructor John made me feel immediately comfortable in front of the wheel and that resulted in me being able to let go of my fears and pass my driving test first time.

Excellent, patient instructor, who was flexible with teaching hours, fitting me in at weekends and in the evenings.

This driving school cancelled on me twice with short notice, the second time was only 10 minutes prior to my actual lesson.

This driving school cancelled on me twice with short notice, the second time was only 10 minutes prior to my actual lesson. The instructors who called to cancel were rude and both said it was inconvenient to pick me up, even though everything had been previously arranged. I even had to chase the school for a response for a refund. Don't go with them!

I made sure to only pay head office when booking my driving lessons with this driving school.

I made sure to only pay head office when booking my driving lessons with this driving school. I'd heard that some past students had problems receiving refunds for cash payments made directly to their instructors.

Overall I'm pleased that I chose driveJohnsons.

Overall I'm pleased that I chose driveJohnsons. My instructor was good, and I was able to pass my test relatively easily. The only challenge I had was my instructor's availability. He wasn't always able to fit me in at a convenient time for me.
