Our Instructors And Their Training

The driving industry has changed many times over the years and like most jobs we have to train to keep up with the changes. So our Instructors are CRB checked for your safety and attend regular meetings and training so they are up to date with the latest training techniques to deliver what we call client centre training which means we don’t instruct you what to do in a driving lesson but discuss a plan of action as everyone is different and some learn in different way. This is why our driving Instructors put our customers first and in the long term gives you quality in your driving lessons in Birchington and also giving you the best customer service as we can. You can learn more about our driving instructors on our Meet The Team page.

Book Your Driving Test

Our driving instructors will take the stress away of booking a practical driving test as when the time comes closer you both need to be in an agreement to when you are confident enough to take the driving test.

Our driving instructors are experienced when booking a test for you. They will cover the questions needed at the time so you won’t have the worry of what is going to happen on the day of the test but before any of this happens you will have to complete your theory test. Your instructor will advise you on all the available materials to study with when revising for the test. You can book your driving theory test online at https://www.gov.uk/book-theory-test.

I chased this driving school for the Quality of teaching, I would have rather gone with Jerry than a big company who may have been cheaper but lesser quality of teaching. Jerry was Convenience, as Jerry has been able to meet me anywhere for my lessons. Learning to driving was about what I expected, the more practice you do the more natural it becomes Jerry teaching methods where Perfect; Jerry was able to connect with me personally, which made the experience easier. 100% yes, everything was perfect. I would recommend Jerry Holmes Driving School.

My previous driving experience had not been good until I found Jerry, who made my driving calm and peaceful. Jerry had a very friendly and calming approach to driving. Jerry is good at explaining things I didn’t understand and has made my overall driving experience very pleasant. Yes I would recommend him to friends and family because Jerry is an excellent and professional driver, who is very patient and understanding.

Hi everyone I passed my practical driving test and just want to say a few words. I’ve been driving for about three years and did give up at one point which was the worst mistake in my life. 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 the worst mistake you can make. Hope you can pass as well thank you … and Jerry is the best driving instructor I’ve ever had.

I felt more relaxed than I expected. Really good, the methods of teaching used made it clear for me to understand what I was doing. Yes, I had a really enjoyable experience learning to drive. I never felt under pressure and I loved how everything was explained to me in such detail.

I thought you were an excellent instructor Jerry as you were very calming and made me feel relaxed, although it may have taken some time to pass, I definitely feel like a safe and good driver now and I thank you for that as I feel that without your experience and knowledge, I may not be able to handle situations the way that I should do.
