about us

Why choose Jerry Holmes Driving School?

Jerry started his driving school back in 2003. He had lots of experience in the driving industry and has taught lots of learner drivers over the years since the driving school has been established and it gave him the knowledge, understanding and skills to pass onto our driving Instructors today. Jerry has attended many training courses over the years as the driving industry has changed many times and there are still ongoing changes with the driving test to make learner drivers safer on the road and deal with the complex road systems. There are 1000’s of motor’s on the road this is why our Instructors are trained to a high standard and that’s one of the many reasons why our driving school is so popular in our local area.

Giving you the choice

We always put our customers first making sure they have a choice in lessons as some people would like to gain they driving licence in shortest possible time and others like to take their time. This is why we try to be flexible with learning the way you like so that the driving lessons go smoothly and enjoyable to have and not only that if you find that this is not the right choice for you, we will give back any driving lesson that is not used back to you. We think of the customer’s worries or stresses before ours.

You’re first driving Lesson

When you first meet your driving Instructor there is a worry you do not know what to expect on your first driving lesson but there isn’t anything to dwell on as our driving instructors are friendly and trained to expect any situation and to help you overcome any nerves or even if you have any disability that might affect your driving. Our Instructors are trained in these areas and continue to develop their training further, also attending regular courses in coaching and developing skills to a high standard. You and your driving Instructor can arrange a plan of action for your lessons so you will be confident and relaxed in your driving lesson then the Instructor can guide you through the training, giving you the confidence you need. Each driving lesson will be planned out for the next time you meet; you will be more relaxed and excited to do the next driving lesson.

Not happy with your previous driving school?

If you are coming from another driving school there could be for many reasons it might be for;

  • My driving instructor is always late? (In some cases this cannot be helped our instructor will make up the time, or add it on to your nest lesson)
  • The Instructor always takes a call in my lessons? (We take all the call in the office so the lesson won’t be interrupted)
  • My Instructor didn’t explain properly (Our instructors are trained to make sure you don’t get confused)
  • My Instructor shouts at me when I get something wrong (No instructors should shout at the pupil. We take control and explain the situation)
  • I left my driving school because they didn’t offer a money back guarantee (We offer a money back guarantee on any lessons not used)
  • My instructor didn’t turn up on the day of the test (At the time of the test our instructors will explain both your and their responsibilities so there is no need to worry)
  • The instructor missed my lesson (On occasions instructors cannot attend. If this happens you will be informed and you will not lose your fee for the lesson)

There are many reasons above how some driving instructors conduct their school but here at Jerry Holmes Driving School we strive to give you the best quality customer service like we have done for many years and that’s why lots of local customers are happy with our driving school.

Price of the lessons was good and the instructor was approachable and easy to get along with. Learning was easier than I expected and a lot faster. The teaching methods were very good and easy to understand. Yes I would recommend because instructors are easy to get along with and talk to about driving.

Someone who made me feels comfortable and who was easy to talk to, friendly, patient and convenient. Learning was less stressful than I anticipated. However driving was more difficult than I thought. The instructor Brandon’s teaching methods were faultless. Couldn’t ask for a better instructor friendly and easy to get along with.

To find a Driving School with a good reputation. Good records and are trustworthy also found the price a good value for money. Driving was more straightforward than I expected but there was lots to remember but I found it informative and fluent with the techniques. Great driving school, I enjoyed my time.

My original instructor was Jerry but he was too busy to take me back on therefore recommended one of his other instructors Brandon. I was happy with the prices of the lessons and they were convenient. I found the lessons a bit stressful but Brandon made then fun. Brandon’s teaching methods were very good and comforting. I can’t fault this service so I would recommend.
