Pupil Testimonials

Former pupils and what they said about their Ready Steady Drive experience


Kerrielee said, “I passed first time with 3 minors with John. A massive thanks for all your hard work and patience with me. Your skills and way of teaching is really calm and easy to learn. John also helped me with my theory and all types of driving in all weathers, plus thanks for coming with me to buy my new car and getting me the best deal.”


Amy said, ” I was eager to start driving lessons and for my birthday I got a block package with Ready Steady Drive. John my Instructor supported me whenever I needed it and my overall experience was great. I enjoyed learning to drive and was over the moon when I passed first time thanks to Ready Steady Drive.”


David said, ” When I first started taking lessons with a previous instructor there were a lot of things that weren’t explained to well, I failed my test three times due to it, I was ready for giving up, that was until I was informed about John, not only was he a great instructor but also a great guy, he was very positive with me even though I lacked confidence due to my previous instructor. John was able to explain things in a lot more detail without making it too complicated, I am fully confident in my driving ability now and I owe it all to John, I would highly recommend him to anyone who is either just starting or looking for a change.”


Clara said, “A big thank you to John Borzyszkowski for teaching me to drive and for helping me to pass my driving test. Even though I had never sat in the drivers seat before my first lesson, I felt immediately at ease. John is always calm, patient and explains everything really clearly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to take driving lessons.”


Lee said, ” I can’t thank Ready, Steady, Drive and my instructor John enough for making my driving lessons a very enjoyable learning experience and getting me through my test successfully at the first attempt. I was quite nervous when I initially booked my lessons as I had minimal knowledge and no experience with cars or driving, but with John’s constant support, encouragement, positive attitude and accurate and informative feedback, I realised I had nothing to worry about and went on to pass my test with confidence and ease. It’s also worth mentioning that John’s availability is great, it was very easy to book lessons around my schedule which helped significantly when it came to the consistency of my progress. I would strongly recommend Ready, Steady, Drive: School of Motoring to anyone looking for an instructor”.


Robin said, “I can’t say enough great things about my learning experience with John and Ready, Steady, Drive. Coming from another instructor I was apprehensive about having to learn to drive a different car and a different style of teaching but I can say that from day one with John he made me feel comfortable, relaxed and made learning to drive an enjoyable experience. With his encouragement, patient manner and enthusiastic instruction for driving, I felt my confidence built with each lesson I took and if there was anything I felt I wasn’t sure on, John was excellent with providing me help whether using software on his ipad for visual guidance or taking extra time to explain what I needed to work on. I would recommend John to anyone and can’t thank him enough for his help and support throughout my time with him.”


Naomi said, “I recently passed my test after taking my lessons with John at Ready Steady Drive. I definitely recommend John as an instructor to anyone wanting to learn to drive safely to the highest standard! Right from my first lesson, when I knew pretty much zero about cars and how to make one actually move, John was able to make what I was being taught clear and understandable. He knew where I was at with my learning and was very patient with me. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed when I was nervous in the more difficult situations on the road and supported me in areas I was struggling with. John has been very supportive and understanding, through each of my lessons. His way of teaching is efficient and the skills that I have learned i.e Reference points etc. will remain with me throughout the rest of my driving life. As I increased in my confidence on the road and started to improve in my driving, I always looked forward to my next lesson. On the lead up to test time (when John knew that I was ready for test) a lot of my lessons consisted of the things I wanted to work on and develop in. My overall experience of learning how to drive (or sometimes learning how NOT to drive) was fun, relaxed and definitely informative”.


Stuart said, “Thanks again for all your support…I found use of the Presenter and iPad really helpful and helped me visualise what we were going to be doing especially when it came to turn in the road and navigating major junctions, controlled and unmarked cross roads. Your communication and availability was excellent and you were available into the evenings which was greatly appreciated…In terms of communication, there was very little required between lessons, but when needed your were always quick to respond and get back to me with availability I felt you judged me really well in terms of when I was ready to progress onto manoeuvres and when I was ready for Test…I think what definitely helps is having an instructor who is easy to get on with. I really enjoyed learning with you and generally cannot think of anything negative to comment on…Thanks again for all the help and support you gave me. I’m sure I’ll see you on the road soon!”
