“After stopping learning to drive at 17, I was so nervous to get back in a car and try again at the age of 21. I simply didn’t really want to do it. However, Chris has not only helped me build my confidence but actually made me enjoy driving.
As someone who is dyslexic I was so worried about trying to find an instructor who would be calm and patient with me while I take in new information. Chris has exactly these qualities! Never failing to go over things with me again and again, and always going at my pace.
He’s very quick to reassure and so easy to be around. There is no pressure from him in any aspect of driving, be it learning a new manoeuvre or questions on driving theory. Driving lessons quickly became a fun activity rather than an anxious one.
Thank you Chris! You have helped me immensely and I’m so grateful for all your support.”
“Chris is an excellent driving instructor, very patient and relaxed and made me feel at ease all the time. Lessons were always class as I was able to progress at my own pace with constructive feedback which helped me become a much better driver. Overall Chris has given me so much confidence and it’s safe to say he is a really good driving instructor!!!”
“Nervous driver? This one’s for you. From the very start I was a very nervous driver, I used to be worried about driving on busy roads, going on roundabouts or even going into a 50mph zone. Chris is calm and patient and will make sure that you are comfortable with any situation and manoeuvres on the road. Over time I became more confident on the road and passed my practical recently. None of that would’ve been possible without Chris’ teachings and patient attitude. Thank you Chris keep up the good work!”
“Thank you so much Chris. Fantastic instructor, kind and patient. Passed my test first time with zero minors! Would recommend Chris to anyone.”
“Long story short – if you want to pass and feel confident and happy in your ability to drive, go with CJR Driving School.
Due to breaks in between driving due to COVID, I thought I’d never pass my driving test. After changing instructors and then having 5 and a half months with Chris, here I am now with a pass certificate and the confidence and skills to drive independently and safely.
Chris will help you build up your skills and will always involve you in what you want to do in your next lesson. He also takes time to explain things and practice different areas and manoeuvres. Chris is also very punctual, flexible and reliable (I work shift work and he is very accommodating to this).
Thank you so much Chris and I’ll see you on the road!”
“Highly recommend Chris, extremely good driving instructor who makes you feel at ease on the road. Extremely patient and explains everything you may not understand.”
“Nothing but positive things to say about Chris. A great calming influence. First time pass! Many thanks.”

“I’ve recently passed first time with Chris, very good instructor.

“As someone who was anxious about learning to drive and I always thought I would struggle to pass my test, thanks to Chris I passed first time with three minors!

I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for driving lessons.”
“I did a couple of refresher lessons with Chris, he really helped build my confidence on the road after not driving for 7 years. Chris was encouraging, calm, relaxed and full of helpful knowledge and tips. I really enjoyed my lessons and I’d highly recommend Chris; it’s nice to have an instructor with a sense of humour too! Thank you!”
“Chris my instructor was very professional and calm. He helps you to correct errors and improve your driving. I’m a very confident driver anyway, but I felt comfortable out on drives because Chris always keeps a conversation, so it isn’t awkward. He tells you when he thinks you’re ready for a test or your theory – I.E he asks you if you think you’re ready and doesn’t put any pressure on you at all. Highly recommend!”

“I’ve recently passed my driving test with only 3 minors and ready to take the next chapter of my life at speed! (Reasonably of course 😁).
A massive thank you to Chris at CJR for showing me the way. He’s an outstanding driving instructor with an in depth knowledge on what makes a student tick and bringing the best of them out on the road. I never imagined i would pass so quick and his understanding and care for his students are the modern day approach the future of drivers need. With Chris as a driving instructor, you can expect an honest and experienced review of your understanding and current capabilities. In which he will develop you to pass (and will be honest when you are ready, for even the most eager). So thank you again Chris and wouldn’t change who taught me for the world!”

His calm and approachable manner always put me at ease when I felt anxious, and his level of being able to explain different driving techniques was greatly appreciated. I will definitely be recommending Chris to anyone who wants to pass quickly and efficiently. Chris not only gets you to pass the test, but he gives you the confidence to believe in yourself and your driving at the end of the journey as well!”

“I would like to thank Chris for being a fantastic instructor who was very patient and calming throughout my lessons. After being put off driving by lessons I have had in the past with other driving companies/instructors it was a breath of fresh air to have such a supportive and likeable guy teaching me. I would without doubt recommend him to anyone and can’t thank him enough for helping me pass my test.”
