Ramsgate Driving Lesson Reviews
I wanted to find a driving school that was Cost effective and quality, and a nice the car to drive. Learning to drive was what I expected it was great, my instructor’s methods where very relaxed, let me get to grips with all the aspects of driving in my own time. Great driving school to learn with, the instructor was great I would have not change anything to be honest; all was very professional from start to finish.
Due to shift work and college + health at the time, flexibility was important to me. As well as friendly and encouraging and someone easy to speak to and friendly as well as supportive and encouraging. Learning to drive was a lot more difficult for me than I thought, especially the clutch and gears, however with persistence and practice I managed to overcome the difficulty. I thought Jerry was very diverse and adaptive when it came to methods, there were visual aids, videos, lists. When I told Jerry I work better with lists he helped me to write one out. Yes! A fantastic driving school I thought the attitude of Jerry and the company’s morals were very trustworthy and reliable. I was never in a position where I was not happy with any part of my lessons. Thank you for being patient with me, even when I stopped for a while / awkward shifts. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with my lessons. You taught me how to drive and be aware, not just to pass my test! Thank you.
Good value for money; patient and friendly and encouraging. I was taught how to drive, not just how to pass both tests. I was taught how to be a safe, responsible, competent driver. It was a lot more intensive than I expected. I wasn’t expecting it, but my legs and head ached a lot at the beginning from concentrating and using the pedals. Jerry was patient and understanding and most of all adaptive. If I needed a picture he would draw one if I needed instructions I got them. A driving school I would recommend most definitely, as I said above, you are taught how to drive, not just to pass the test. I feel Jerry Holmes Driving School makes all there drivers safe, competent drivers.
Experienced safe Driving Instructor, who is patient while driving and to be able to bond with Jerry the driving instructor and to help explain things well to me. Pick it up quicker than expected like second nature as Jerry explained thinks clearly so I became confident. Jerry was very good at explaining things and helped me visualise what I need to do in order to drive safe as possible. Great driving school because they know what they are talking about and know how to drive safely. Jerry has been very good with his teaching methods as I felt like the driving was for my benefit .

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.

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 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*.
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
Jerry was very polite and patient during all lessons while offering a professional service. During each lesson Jerry would give clear instructions and discuss your strengths and weaknesses to help tailor each lesson to your needs. 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 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.
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.
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%.
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.
