Ambition Driving School
Jonathan or Jonny as we know him as, is Ambition's manual specialist and is a fully qualified and experienced A.D.I and has been CRB checked by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency).
Over the many years as a driving instructor, Jonathan has attended many CPD courses, which relate to becoming a competent, friendly and efficient driving instructor. These include Customer Care, Mock Test Accredited ADI and many more, which has contributed to Jonny becoming a very successful driving instructor.
Jonathan, when working for a national driving school as a driving instructor, worked his way up to Deputy Support Instructor. This role was to support new driving instructors with the day to day running of their new career as a driving instructor. This included training with newly qualified instructors on how to structure driving lessons with the customers' needs on a one to one basis (mentor).
Jonathan also has experience with customers who have dyslexia, dyspraxia, brain injuries and many more conditions that in some cases may stop someone from learning how to drive or continuing to drive safely.
Having problems with the Theory and Hazard Perception Test? Not a problem. Jonathan has many different techniques in ways that can help with passing your first goal on your way to not just passing your driving test, but safe driving for life.
Lessons with Jonathan will take place at a time convenient to you in a vehicle with dual controls, solely on a one to one basis.
Jonathan covers a wide range of tuition, which include Learner Lessons, Pass Plus, Motorway, Refresher Courses, Mobility (Manual) and many more. Jonathan's vehicle can be adapted for mobility lessons such as mirrors, if restricted sight or movement with observations is a cause of concern, plus his vehicle handbrake can be adapted if strength is an issue when releasing the handbrake.
With mobility lessons, Jonathan has worked with customers who have needed remedial lessons regarding customers returning to driving after undertaking a formal driving assessment at North East Drive Mobility at Newcastle.
We at Ambition Driving School are very proud to have such a friendly, thorough, experienced and qualified driving instructor working towards your safety and passing your driving test first time, which will also give you the skills and confidence to drive safely for life.
I started lessons with Jonathan at the end of November and yesterday I passed my test on first attempt with only one driver fault. I honestly can't praise Jonathan and his teaching enough. I have bad anxiety and his cool and calm nature has given me so much comfort to be able to drive with the confidence that I have. The most knowledgeable instructor I know....Which is handy as it took me three attempts to find a good one. If I can pass my test, anyone can!
Once again, thank you so much for all your support!!! I couldn't have done it without you!
Jonathan is an excellent and calm instructor who makes you feel so comfortable when driving and that's coming from a nervous driver! Would highly recommend learning to drive with him. You'll be passed in no time
A long story short...I had a bad driving experience recently which seriously knocked my confidence to drive safely. So, after driving for 29 years, I decided to have my driving ability assessed. Other than a 'speed plus' fault, Johnathan's feed back was all good. Johnathan remained relaxed throughout the assessment whilst refreshing my memory on a couple of ambiguous road rules and now I have my confidence back.
For my own peace of mind, I intend to repeat this experience, It has done me the world of good. Thank you Johnathan
