My experience with John Kerr and Drive and Pass:I've had a countless number of instructors in my time learning to drive, none have ever come close to the professionalism and expert level of knowledge held by John Kerr. Unlike a lot of instructors, John prides himself in making you the best driver you can be. You're not just trained to be at pass standard, instead, you are trained to tackle any situation the roads have for you. At the end of each lesson, there would be an in-depth debrief to discuss how you thought the lesson went and where you could improve. John consistently made sure that every minute of the lesson was used to effectively to most improve your driving and often went overtime to make sure you would leave the lesson feeling great. As well as taking it very seriously, John was a very friendly instructor and his humor made the lessons that much more enjoyable. I would like to thank John for going that extra mile for me (excuse the pun!). Cheers again. Haidar.
Your more than welcome HaIdar. It was a pleasure teaching you. Your enthusiasm was fantastic.
"I started having lessons with John after I had had 50 hours of lessons with a pretty terrible instructor. I found driving scary, had been taught badly and so had some bad habits. John was really logical about reteaching everything properly so that I was driving safely and felt much more comfortable. He was always calm, reassuring and explained things clearly (and often repeatedly!) until I understood. Each lesson was planned with a focus and I always had a clear idea about how far I was from taking my test. My lessons with John have prepared me well to be a safe and confident driver. I would absolutely recommend John, particularly to anyone anxious about driving."
HI John many thanks for your efforts towards helping me pass. You patched me up real good, from roundabouts to speed. I was really struggling in Birmingham and you really helped me with discipline and progression through gears even the fact I was clutch burning and you removed that aspect from my driving. Thanks for helping me pass in minimal hours.

The DVSA Driving Test requires a high standard of driving. During the test, the Examiner will watch you continually to check that you respond correctly to developing hazards. Not only this, he/she expects you to drive safely and calmly without hesitation. You have to be able to control the car at all times and not be a danger to other road users.
What does that mean?
You have to be able to anticipate the road ahead and plan accordingly. It may involve just small changes to your speed and positioning but you need to be able to do it effectively without putting you or other road users in potential danger.
Braking suddenly causing the following car to nearly hit you would mean you didn´t anticipate in time to the developing hazard in front of you.
Your Drive and Pass Instructor will guide you through the Test procedure and prepare you well in advance using some of the test routes in Loughbrough and the outskirts. More importantly, you´ll learn all the skills neccessary to pass the test including how identify different types of road junctions (where about 60% of accidents occur) how to approach, enter and leave roundabouts, and how to decide if its safe to continue when cars are approaching you.
