Jerry Holmes Driving Lesson Reviews
Highly recommend Jerry’s driving school, Jerry is very warm and encouraging. He’s always on time and prepared. Thank you Jerry, I couldn’t have done it without you!
Excellent driving instructor. Would recommend Jerry to anyone! Very patient, supportive and helpful!
I have had the pleasure and joy to be taught by Brandon Nye of Jerry Holmes School of motoring. I would highly recommend these guys they are professional and extremely helpful. If it wasn't not for Brandon's calm nature, encouragement and professional manner in how he teaches I doubt I would have passed first time. If you are new to driving or had previous lessons these guys adapt their teaching style to you to get the end result we all want - an examiner saying 'congratulations you have passed'.
I would definitely recommend Jerry Holmes driving school. My tutor, Brandon, was extremely helpful and professional. Easy learning experience and no cheap tricks that other driving schools might use. From start to finish Brandon was thorough and what I love the most is that he is very passionate about driving and safety. If you want to pass your test. This is the best place to do it.

When I stared learning I was expecting it to be easier and less nerve wrecking but I (wouldn’t’ change anything otherwise, there could have been a very different outcome.)

Jerry Holmes has got to be the best driving instructor I could have asked for. Made me feel so at ease and calm when it came to my driving not to mention boosted my confidence on the road as well as driving in a really nice car. I am so pleased to have passed my test with him and I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you.
It is a ridiculously good feeling having passed my driving test, and the journey here with Jerry has been a pleasure in its self. Driving into the test centre, behind the nerves, I felt a confident, safety-minded road-user and proud of the driving style I had developed. This positive mind-set was down to Jerry and the skills he had taught me through an individually tailored programme, which took into account my strengths, weaknesses and natural learning style. Thank you Jerry, 100%.
I have to say that Jerry has given me much more confidence, not only in my driving but on the road in general. He made learning to drive so easy and has such a lovely approach to teaching. Jerry comes with the highest recommendation, thank you.
Jerry was great, he has so much experience, and his teaching methods are very effective. He lets you plan out how you want your lessons to go, and what you want to cover. He’s also very consistent which is great. I have already and will continue to recommend to friends.
I looked for a driving school local to me, affordable driving lessons and have fantastic reviews. Before I started driving I thought, if some old lady can do it, I’m sure I will have no problem. I was nervous at first, but naturally that was to be expected. I was Calm and at a steady pace. I understand I can be somewhat difficult. It’s easy for me to misunderstand and be misunderstood. But Jerry methods helped me through if I can do it then anyone can do it Jerry can help anyone pushing me a little more to help me progress. I know I can do it, but times I was not so sure.
I had Brandon as my driving instructor and I could not have asked for anyone better! I really struggled with the thought of learning to drive but after a first lesson with Brandon, he’d managed to turn full on anxiety into excitement. His patience and understanding was amazing, he’s always calm and knows exactly how to put you at ease. Mistakes weren’t a problem in his eyes, which was a big plus, because he just talked you through it, calmed you down and let you try again. Apart from that he’s an honest, genuine and lovely man! (With a great sense of humour!) I can’t put it into words really; you’d have to find out yourself! 10/10 experience.
Jerry was very friendly and patient. He listened to me and clears my doubts. He is a very good instructor Jerry was also very calm. I achieve all I wanted through his lessons I achieved more than I expected. Without him I couldn't pass the test. Jerry teaching methods was easy to understand. He was very patient it helped me a lot. 100% I would recommend More than an instructor, a good Instructor.

Even with a busy work schedule Jerry can pick you up from home or work which allowed less worry about getting to work on time. With Jerry's help I managed to pass first time with his calm and professional service.

I was looking for someone who was supportive and offers encouragement to boost my confidence. I needed a driving school that was able to offer a suitable time for me around my school. Learning was a lot more factors to consider than I expected. A lot of concentration was required for observations. Brandon teaching methods really helped me as there was structure to my lessons and everything was clearly explained. Yes, I would recommend Jerry Holmes Driving School friendly service.

What an amazing instructor, with patience knowledge and a friendly manor to make learning to drive effortless and fun! I had such a great time learning to drive with Jerry and I am so thankful for all he taught me to pass my test. I would recommend 100% to anyone such a great driving school 5 Star.
The most important criteria for me in choose a driving instructor was that there be mutual respect between the instructor and I.
Other factors that were important to me when choosing my Driving Instructor was that the instructor was very competent and able to give instruction in a way that responded to the way that I learned best.
How did learning to drive compare to what I expected?
I was very pleasantly surprised. When I took my lessons, I had already been driving for over 40 years. I learned A lot! And I became conscientious and attentive to the road and my environment in a way I simply wasn’t before. I would say I’m a much safer and more competent driver than I ever was.
How did you find your instructors’ teaching methods.
What I appreciated was that Jerry gave me several suggestions for ways of learning that might work for me. These included observing him driving, to providing commentary on my own driving, to watching video, and recording and watching my own video. It quickly became apparent which method was most beneficial for me. I appreciated Jerry’s willingness to follow the method I wanted, but also his sensitive coaching when he felt strongly that other approaches might be of particular benefit.
Would i recommend this driving school why?
Absolutely. There can be no higher recommendation than that I recommended that both my children take lessons from Jerry’s School of driving. I am clear that the instructor was highly competent as a driver, but also particularly able as an instructor, in understanding the best way to have me learn. Jerry practiced the perfect balance between being uncompromisingly straight with me when that was required, and giving me room to make mistakes. I always felt encouraged as well as challenged. I believe I got driving instruction of the highest calibre.
I was recommended to this driving school. The price of the lessons are really good. Instructor is easy to get in touch with. Brandon was always so reliable, Always made you feel comfortable and not nervous and Patient with you. Enjoyed doing my lessons with him all the time. I expected it to take me ages to learn and to pass. I learnt quite quickly with Brandon. It took a good time to learn and to be good at driving. He was Absolutely amazing. Always so patient. taught step by step to make it easier, never rushed. Yes of course I would recommend Jerry Holmes Driving School. Brandon was welcoming patient and helpful.

Absolutely great instructor would recommend any day of the week.
I prefer Jerry Holmes School of Motoring because of the comfortable training for me. Other factors of the driving school are very good teaching, polite, being on time. And very comfortable with Jerry the Instructor as well my learning was very comfortable and more pleased than I expected as the teaching method where Excellent, and understanding. He was comfortable for me so he will be for others.
I was looking for a driving instructor who was sensible and explained things and who made the learning fun and not a chore. He was very professional with all his instructions and walked me through the whole process of joining his school and all the associated paperwork through to the actual driving lessons themselves. He was always very helpful when fitting me in around my busy work life. He is like that teacher at school who you actually looked forward to instead of dreading. He doesn't shout if you do something wrong but takes the time to explain what you have done wrong and how to improve. If you’re looking for a gd instructor you would not be sorry going with him as he is not just good but can say he is a great instructor. He seems to love what he does and is not just in it to make money unlike some of the horror stories around driving schools/instructors. The office staff will run you through everything from beginning to end and they are just as friendly as Jerry himself.
I was looking for Quality service and a good driving school with Good reputation and relatively good value for money. My experiences of learning were made a lot easier thanks to my driving instructor Brandon and was a lot more fun than I expected. Teaching methods were excellent! I started learning to drive with no knowledge at all and managed to pass first time because he knew exactly what needed to be done. I would recommend Jerry Holmes Driving School, Definitely, because it was a much better experience than I thought it would be and everything I needed to know was given to me.
Jerry was a fantastic instructor good for both people who want to learn quickly and those who perhaps need a little more time. Very professional service able to provide somewhat flexible times to suit you as best as possible
Personally, I believe that the most important criteria for when choosing a driving instructor is experience and patience. This is because, as a beginner driver you need someone that has had their fair share of experience and has the know how to teach others .From personal experience, patience is also a key factor, as not everyone is a natural when it comes to driving. A driving instructor needs to realize that and adapt to the student’s needs, which was demonstrated on many occasions with Jerry.
I thought I was going to be an unteachable student at the beginning; this is because I am a slow learner, especially when it comes to simultaneously controlling all the different internal controls inside the car.
My driving instructor Jerry, he’s methods were easy to understand and grasp, this claim can be supported by the countless years of driving experience he has gained and demonstrated to me and others.
I have already recommended you to several of my friends and family. I have told them about your teaching methods and how much experience you process, they have all since gained interest in your school.
Personally, there is nothing to improve upon, as you have showed exceptional customer service and support in our lessons.
When I was looking for a driving Instructor I wanted to find someone that is calm and patient friendly and easy to talk to if I was to struggling with my lessons. At first I was worried and didn’t know what to expect, but it was a lot more fun than I expected with Jerry. Teaching methods were very clear and easy to pick up. Yes I would recommend Jerry because I feel I have learnt a lot about being on the road as well as how to drive. Also the lessons were fun and my instructor Jerry was friendly and a good teacher.
I choose the driving school as it was Quick response and very friendly I had lessons before with another driving school, but this time I found it much easier, as I felt calmer with my instructor Brandon. I couldn’t fault the Teaching methods as there’s no wrong or right way to do some things. I.e. Bay parking as long as it’s safe and under control I would recommend Jerry Holmes Driving School as it felt easy to learn I have had no problems with the driving school A*.
My sister, Recommendation Jerry Holmes Driving School that helped me to choose this driving school Training was excellent, Brandon was a brilliant teacher who was supporting, well-mannered and helpful. I would fully recommend him as a driving instructor to others and the driving school. I am very satisfied with the experience and feel that I was taught wonderfully.
I was looking for a friendly driving instructor more than anything and Brandon was very friendly and understanding. The price was a factor, very reasonably priced and great quality lessons. I have had two previous instructors and I had expected the same strict approach but, it was completely different, relaxed and I felt comfortable with my driving. Brandon teaching was fantastic clear and easily understandable. Previously I struggled with parallel parking, but with Brandon’s method, it’s one of my favourite manoeuvres now. 100% yes recommend Friendly, reasonable and approachable.
I would like to thank Jerry Holmes my Instructor Trainer for getting me through my part three test on my first time especially as it was at the end of my two years training and my first attempt at part three. Before I met Jerry I previously joined up with a local driving school in my area. Over a period of time of training I felt wasn’t getting the training and information to help me progress to achieve my dream as a driving instructor so I started to seek other trainers in my local area again I wasn’t happy with what they were telling me and I felt the interviews didn’t go well but I was advised by other driving instructors in the area to see Jerry at Jerry Holmes Driving School as he has been recommended by lots of different driving instructors for his training so I arranged to meet Jerry on a meeting and I was so surprised how professional his courses were . Everything was laid out from part 1, 2 and 3 and his contracts were simple and nothing like I’ve experienced with another trainers in this area. I booked my first lesson with Jerry and I learnt more in 2 hours than what I have done in all my past training and now I wish I had started my training at the beginning with him. Everything was in order and the paperwork to go with the training was excellent. I recommend anyone who wants to become a driving instructor or is not happy with their driving to contact Jerry as I feel without Jerry’s help would not be able to complete this course. I am now proud to be a driving instructor in my local area in Herne Bay.
I had done a search in my local area and done some training but I just didn’t understand completely what was expected of me. I tried some other local instructors who offered instructor training but didn’t feel I could learn from them.
Until I met Jerry, I moved forward under his instruction. He did not want me to have any unnecessary lessons and after the initial assessment drive, we moved forward at a good pace, resulting in me passing all my Tests on the first attempt.
We had already discussed becoming a franchisee and so with great pleasure I handed in my notice at my previous job and launched into becoming self-employed!
From my initial Meeting, I was struck by how genuine he was. I asked him some quite straight forward questions; I was struck by his honesty. I’ve always wanted to be a driving instructor.
In reality, I have never had a lack of work since joining and the income has been steady and not a problem in any way.
He feeds me each month (although this has never been a problem), it knows when I’m out there doing the job, that his support on any issues I am experiencing is only a phone call away. He will always support and advise and even deal with difficult situations if necessary. I think I would have struggled in a few situations if I hadn’t had the back up and support.
I had recommendations from my friends and family from their experience. The driving school were easy to contact and excellent customer service and also reliable. It was much harder than I expected at the beginning which required lots of concentration. This became easy over time with Jerry’s help. I liked Jerry’s driving techniques. I like the way my instructor taught and I found his methods helpful and beneficial to my training as each lesson became easier and enjoyable to do. Yes, I felt this driving school was very reliable and had a kind instructor. I felt like I was making the most out of every lesson. I had the best experience and I did not feel that it had to be enhanced in any areas.
The main factor was finding an instructor who could teach me up to pass my test and make me the best driver I could be under their teaching Hence my choice. Other important factors are finding someone who was affordable and also took recommendations into consideration when choosing. In some ways it was just what I expected but in others it was very different, being that some things was very complicated but, all made easier by top quality teaching. I found the methods used very effective and easy to understand, nothing was made difficult. It was very clear and well done. Recommend yes most definitely, I think that teaching would be easy to understand and the way in which it is taught would benefit people. I don’t feel that there is anything that could have been improved. I felt everything runs well and is executed in a fantastic manner, which impacts well on your learning.
I found that the teaching methods were very effective because he was always calm and trusted me as a driver. Yes, I feel that this company is the best around, because they teach you to drive, not just to pass.
A new challenge and more calming than expected.

My theory test expired today and I passed my practical driving test today and that says something, never give up. Jerry didn’t give up, my parents didn’t give up, and you yourself do not give up.

It’s a great driving school was very good.
I was looking for a professional school that would take the process seriously and would provide me with the techniques I needed to be a safe driver. I saw the car whilst out and thought it looked really smart so I was online looking for reviews! When I was looking into reviews it was important for me to see that the instructors were patient, professional and supportive, as someone with a nervous attitude I was really pleased to see all the great reviews from female students and so I was immediately confident this school would be a great choice! It was a lot more pleasant than I expected and I looked forward to my lessons each week as every lesson I always felt I had achieved something or learnt a valuable lesson, which really helped boost my confidence. Brandon was very patient, calm, clear and encouraging. I always felt comfortable, and Brandon was always willing to answer my endless questions and would always take his time explaining everything, so I always knew what I needed to do. Absolutely I would recommend this school without a doubt. In fact I already have, my brother now learns with the school and Brandon. Whilst some might see the cost and think it’s expensive it actually becomes cost effective – and you cannot argue with quality, especially when learning to drive. You get a fantastic 2 hour lesson, which really helps with learning process – think all schools should do a 2 hour lesson as you learn so much more and it becomes a valuable learning experience. Brandon was a great teacher and as a result of my learning with the school I had the skills and confidence to pass 1st time.
The most important thing for me was an instructor that was calm and friendly, as I felt nervous about learning to drive. Other important factors for me were a driving instructor with experience and a good knowledge to help me become confident and comfortable on the road. My driving instructor Jerry helped me to become confident and comfortable through being patient. I didn’t expect to learn methods so quickly, my lessons were always structured and in decided what I wanted to learn, which I didn’t expect but I did benefitted massively from. I learnt knowledge beyond passing the test which has made me feel more confident in my driving. I was always concerned about teaching methods as my sister had an instructor (with another company) that ended up putting her off her lessons. However my instructors teaching were structured. So I had a plan, I always knew where I needed to improve. My instructor provided a learning that suited all, by providing diagrams, drawings and welcoming to teach in the best methods for the individual. Yes, I would always recommend Jerry, as he was a fantastic instructor who was calm and patient with the experience and knowledge. Anyone who has jerry as an instructor is lucky I couldn’t fault my learner experience with Jerry Holmes School of motoring. I will be forever grateful to jerry for teaching me to drive!
I wanted someone who would be able to work around my work hours as well as someone who is friendly and cost effective. I used Jerry when I first started my lessons and he was very down to earth and friendly. I then went onto have Brandon as my tutor and I felt he reflected Jerry’s values very well and again was very friendly. The techniques that Brandon used to teach me were so easy to grasp. He is very easy to get along with. Even when I struggled with manoeuvres, Brandon helped me to work around them. Easy to learn and very helpful. I would recommend 100% because with Jerry / Brandon I would not have passed! The teaching methods are amazing! Brandon is great with communicating with me throughout the lesson. Absolutely nothing! The prices are great for the amount we fit into the lesson. The teaching methods are amazing!
