I started off with John knowing I had a big task ahead of me. Everything we did, talked about, looked at meant something. All in all, John has served as a huge role model to me and I won't forget this experience.

Thanks to my instructor, John Macdonald, I passed my test first time a month after my 17th birthday. His methods of teaching always ensured that I had a complete understanding of what to do and my confidence at the wheel continues to grow.

Even though an intensive 3 days course, John knew when to give me a break when he seen I was tired, defusing the situation.  Taught to a much higher standard, allowing me to be at ease in the 'L' test.  Can't say enough for John facilitating.  Many thanks (p.s. Im still faster on the track on a bike lol, Zula #17).
