Driving lessons taken in Petts Wood

Refresher lessons with Jo

"I chose Dean Wyatt Driving School having researched local driving schools and compared reviews. I saw there were lots of recommendations for the school on local facebook groups. I was looking for a school that offered refresher lessons and understood nervous drivers. When I first enquired with the school they were professional and friendly and understood my anxiety and had availability straight away so I decided to book with them. I wasn’t too sure what to expect beforehand, but I am really happy with how the lessons went and how there was visible progress each lesson. I wasn’t sure how long it would take me to feel confident driving, but I expected it to take longer than it did. Jo’s calm demeanour and teaching really helped. I think it could have been different with other instructors who weren’t as calm or understanding. I liked how Jo made a plan for each lesson and then set a goal for the next one. I liked Jo’s teaching methods, particularly how she worked with my levels of confidence and my suggestions to devise a plan and set goals for each lesson. She had the right balance of pushing me out of my comfort zone so that I could build up my experience and confidence on the road, but also working at my pace and checking that I was ok and never forcing me to do a drive I didn’t yet feel comfortable with. She always explained things clearly. I liked how at the end of each lesson she reflected on what we’d covered and things I needed to work on and improve, and what I did well. I started as hesitant and nervous in my abilities, and now feel confident and safe thanks to Jo’s teaching. I would recommend Jo to my friends and anyone looking to learn to drive or refresh their driving skills. I can’t think of any improvements. Thank you so much Jo for helping me progress and build confidence, it’s going to make a huge difference!"
