Testimonials

If you have taken a course with one of our instructors then we would really appreciate it if you could leave us a testimonial, they really help us out.

We also have an active Kent Intensive Driving School Facebook page where you will find testimonials as well as photos of students who have passed their driving test with us. Again it really helps us if you can post positive reviews or like our page. Thanks from everyone at Kent Intensive Driving School!

As an anxious person who never thought that she could do it, I finally did it. Pete was a dream of an instructor for me from day one – I truly felt understood on every lesson and he remained so patient throughout all of my personal doubts and worries. Unlike other instructors that I’ve had previously, he ensured the car was a safe space and adapted my lessons instead of enforcing a “one size fits all” plan. This allowed me to build my confidence at a pace that was challenging enough for me without being overwhelming and he knows that I’m forever grateful – couldn’t recommend enough 🙂

A massive thank you to Jean for helping me pass my driving test today. Jean is a one in a million driving instructor, I went from being a nervous wreck at the wheel to really enjoying my lessons and looking forward to the laughs we would have along the journey. Jean is so patient, understanding and always explained where I was going wrong in depth so that I could push through that and work on it. I can’t say thank you enough to Jean, as she knew this pass would change a lot of things for me. Thank you so much Jean and I hope our paths cross again in the future! X

I completed an intensive driving course with Pete who had a wealth of experience teaching first time drivers. There was never a dull moment with Pete who was very easy to talk to and a great laugh which massively helps with the stress of learning to drive and creating a calm atmosphere in the car. Pete’s patience and expertise really helped to guide me to passing my driving test, you can tell he really cares about his students as he went above and beyond to accommodate additional lessons for me.

Very happy with my experience, massive thank you to Pete!

Jean was better than any driving instructor I could’ve hoped for! She is excellent at explaining and always aiming to build your confidence throughout each lesson, whilst also being great to talk which helps with nerves a lot! I passed first time with only four driving faults! I couldn’t be happier. Thank you once again Jean, hopefully see you soon in the future.

A massive thanks to Pete for helping me to pass my test. I was previously learning with BSM in London pre-covid and had failed my driving test several times. But Pete was able to graciously identify my weaknesses promptly and guide me efficiently in how to address them. Never a dull moment with Pete in our conversations and he was a natural at maintaining a calm and cheerful atmosphere in the car. Plus… 10 out of 10 for the ‘Pete pep talk’ before the test!

Pete was amazing at keeping me calm and really helping with my nerves. He is very patient and doesn’t make you feel rushed. After having many problems with lessons before the 25 hour course, Pete really helped me come a long way and made me a better driver and person overall on the roads! Thank you so much

Would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Pete, A calm and reassuring driving instructor with a heart of gold. He really helped with my nervousness by being calm and answering any questions I had no matter how silly they seemed. Really looked forward to each session with him as we had some lovely conversations and you can learn at your own pace. You can clearly see how much he loves his job and cares for his students. When mistakes were made, he was very informative and talks you through where you went wrong without being condescending or belittling. Will miss learning with you Pete!
Thank you!

I highly recommend Jean for anyone looking to pass their test quickly and to a high standard. I had been driving as a learner for about a year before being taught by Jean, and in just four lessons she had me test-ready! I passed with only 2 minors, but lots of confidence. Lessons were stress free and enjoyable.
Big Thanks again!! 😊

Dave Knowles was really incredible, I’m someone that put off driving for many years due to many fears regarding it but after a few hours with Dave I felt extremely comfortable due to his very calm nature & positivity.

I cannot recommend Kent Intensive Driving School enough. I had the pleasure of being taught by Paul, I’d had no previous driving experience and have passed my test (first time) within 8 days of starting my course and with only 2 faults!

Jean was an incredibly driving instructor for my son. So professional, patient and kind. She genuinely cares about her pupils and is unbelievably supportive. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive!!

Adam Ball

I would have not been in such a good position for my driving test without Jean. Through her intensive I went from not having driven a manual car before to passing in about a month. Would 100% recommend the intensive course to anybody thinking about learning or looking for alternatives to the usual hourly weekly lessons.

Louis
February, 2024

Thanks Pete for helping me pass my driving test.
Hourly lessons didn’t really seem like my thing so an intensive course was quick and easy and a great way to learn fast.

Everything was well explained and I understood things well.

Really appreciate it. Thankyou

I had lessons when I was 18, 10 hours and I hadn’t switched gears!! Now at 23 I thought about learning again, this time I went with Kent Intensive Driving School, and I was still so nervous, luckily I had Pete, he was calm and taught me in a way I could understand making steady progression over our 40 hours together, even today when I did the test I was nervous but he had utmost confidence in me. I’m very lucky to have had Pete, and I am so happy I chose Kent Intensive Driving School.

Jareth
February, 2024

I had weekly lessons in my late teens and again in late twenties, and both times got stuck at “almost ready” for months on end. Finally, Paul McKenzie has sorted me out in ONE WEEK! A FIRST TIME PASS with only 2 minors!

A phemonenal instructor, such a lovely guy, a terrific mentor. Wonderful approach to teaching. He kept the lessons relaxed but concise, we covered so much depth in such a short space of time. He’ll whip you into shape without you even realising.

There’s so much more I could say, honestly, cannot recommend them enough. Thank you for everything Paul.

I had the pleasure of being instructed by Jean, and I must say she was amazing. Her teaching style is both patient and thorough, creating a comfortable learning environment.

Jean was recommended to me by another person who had passed and so glad she was, my daughter passed 1st time with Jean with jeans intensive course.
Jeans attention to details and knowing the abilities of her learners and putting a plan together to ensure they pass is what ensures the best possible outcome, my daughter wasn’t nervous and felt confident on the day of her test thanks to Jeans hard work and her ability to support her learners, my daughter has autism and Jean was fantastic with her and it showed when she passed on her first test.
We are forever grateful and looking forward to my other daughter’s test this year.

Katy-Ann samuels

Before driving with Jean I had 4 majors in a driving test.

After this I booked a 15 hour intensive course and Jean fixed all issues and I passed within a week of learning with her.

I cannot recommend her enough for anyone struggling to get test ready, with help from both the driving standards but also the mental barriers making it much easier to learn.

Ben
January, 2024

Jean has taken both my sons for intensive driving courses. They had both failed twice with other instructors. Jean is clearly able to teach what is needed to pass and she knows all the possible test routes. They both passed after her tuition and I am extremely grateful to her.

I couldn’t recommend Jean enough having just passed my driving test, I had previously been learning to drive with BSM before I had my daughter, and only recently had the opportunity to finish learning. She was absolutely amazing to work with, and her patience with me was unrivalled. She also fully believed in me despite my own self doubt, and I’d never have been able to drive without her. Thank you Jean:)

I had the privilege of learning to drive with Jean, who couldn’t have been any better at understanding and adapting her teaching to ensure you’re comfortable and understanding of everything that is needed. I have had different driving instructors before meeting Jean, however her understanding of how best to instruct the learner and keep calm in all situation is unmatched. As well as this, in the lessons she employed different methods of teaching to make sure you’re understanding everything. One of which is a visual application that demonstrated different elements on the road which I found incredibly useful.

Thanks to her I passed with only a few minors and can remember my driving lessons as being fun and filled with good chats.

Josh Earby
December, 2023

Pete is an exceptional driving instructor and he played a pivotal role in my success on my driving test. His expertise, patience, and dedication to my growth as a driver has been truly remarkable. His ability to simplify complex concepts made learning enjoyable, and his support has instilled confidence in me. He not only equipped me with the necessary skills to pass my test but also a deep respect for safe and responsible driving. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking professional driving lessons.

Darren
December, 2023

We decided on an intensive course for our sons and I really think it has been brilliant as both have now passed first time! We are absolutely thrilled. Jean taught them both, they both looked forward to their lessons with Jean and they could not be happier! Thank you so so much.

Did my 8 day intensive course with Pete. Such a great guy, very down to earth and a great instructor. Had a laugh and always gave me the confidence to push myself. Recommended to anyone who wants to pass.

Aaron
November, 2023

I did my course with Peter and it was transformative. I had lessons prior but no one had poured the effort and explanations required for me to understand and learn how to drive properly.

Positive Pete observed how I learned best and would use these tools to give me the confidence required.

I passed my test on the first go and only had a couple of minors, I will only be recommending Peter and I cannot praise him enough! Cheers!!!!

Georgiana
November, 2023

I took my twenty hour intensive course with Jean and needless to say she was invaluable. Jean was friendly and encouraging and she put me at ease straight away. Jean was able to assess and build upon my previous driving lessons as well as identity areas to work on and build confidence in before my test. Jean was very informative and knowledgable about the test routes, formats and procedures and I felt fully prepared about what was going to happen on the day.
I felt like Jean built the course around my personal needs as a learner driver, which helped me to be successful.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone, You can tell how much Jean cares about her pupils and she really does go above and beyond to assist them with their driving skills.
I was absolutely over the moon to pass my driving test first time – A huge thank you to Jean for all of her knowledge, time and support.

My son had a week’s intensive course with Pete, after a year of interrupted mixed driving instructor experience with others. Pete was fantastic!! He understood that my son required a boost of confidence as much as anything. He was calm, patient and explained things really clearly. My son felt very comfortable in the car with Pete for 4 hours at a time because he was professionally friendly. I would highly recommend Pete to anyone looking to pass first time 😊

Jean was an amazing instructor and I’m so happy that I got to do my intensive course with her. I passed first time with 5 minors and got to contribute to Jean’s remarkable pass rate 🙂 Jean is kind, always on time and explained everything clearly. I was nervous about doing 4 hour sessions on consecutive days but the time flew by. If you are a nervous driver I highly recommend an intensive course and pushing through as it can really bring your confidence up. And if you can, get Jean because she’s lovely!

Oliver
October, 2023

Almost gave up on driving after failing my first test till a colleague recommended Pete. I read his reviews on here and I must say, every word is true.

I cannot begin to thank Jean enough for coming to my sons rescue after two different driving instructors had to stop teaching Joe for various reasons. Jean kindly fitted Joe into her busy schedule to get him through to his test .
Her kind and caring nature gave Joe the confidence to not only pass his test first time but he also achieved this with no minor points.
She made him feel at ease on the day of his test and took the time to be patient and kind throughout.
Jean is a wonderful driving instructor and I would highly recommend her for your son or daughter.

I had been driving for almost 4 years and as I was part of the covid cohort really struggled to get a test, but by booking an intensive with pete who is a calm, funny and brilliant driving instructor, over three days I was able to pass my test with ease. I am extremely grateful to pete!

Imogen Tait
August, 2023

I completed an intensive driving course with Jean and she was excellent. She was an effective teacher, always calm and and composed and happy to talk through areas I was finding difficult so I could make improvements. It was really useful that she was flexible with the test slot so I could do it at the right time for me, and with rearranging lesson times so I could make the most out of every lesson I had. We progressed at just the right rate, fast enough to keep challenging me in new situations but not so fast for it to be overwhelming. She was also very patient with me, and achieved a good balance of telling me what mistakes I was making without being too overbearing. Her knowledge of local roads and test routes was also invaluable.

Ralph Battle
August, 2023

I did my intensive course with Paul. He is an amazing instructor and has a huge amount of experience, which made me feel like I was in safe hands. Paul gave me very good feedback in terms of when I was doing well, but also what I needed to improve. I’d never driven a car before and Paul took me from a complete beginner to a confident driver who past first time after 35 hours of intensive driving. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul and wish him good luck with his future students.

Hana Hockaday

Jean at Kent Intensive Driving School has been amazing. After failing a test previously with another instructor, I was very nervous to drive again. Jean, however, taught me the importance of perseverance and staying positive- in less than a week I had built my confidence on the roads hugely! This resulted in me passing my test after 5 days with only a handful of minors. Thank you & I could not recommend Kent Intensive Driving School enough!

Want to say a massive thankyou to Jean. Helped boost my confidence so much and believed in me the whole way. If it wasnt for her I wouldn’t have passed so quick, 100% recommend her x

I booked a 5 day intensive course and cannot recommend it enough!
My instructor Peter, was patient, understanding and really gave me confidence. After my first day, I couldn’t wait to get back behind the wheel!
I passed my first test and can’t fault the whole experience.

I completed a mostly intensive course with Jean. She is very knowledgeable and could tell when I was struggling. She really helped me by making sure I could talk about my worries and I made progress very quickly with her guidance. Thanks to her I passed first time!. Thank you so nuch Jean!

  1. Jean is a very good instructor, is very calming and simplifies driving. She managed to get me an earlier test and got me prepared for it in such a short period I really recommend having Jean as your instructor.

Cameron

I started with next to no experience and after 5 days of intensive lessons with Jean and an extra few hours before my test date I passed first time with two minors. Jean is an amazing teacher, she’s really friendly and patient, and from the very first lesson she was thorough and got me driving safely on the roads with confidence. She can be strict at times but it’s definitely what was needed to pass so quickly! I would highly recommend her to any learner drivers.

K io I can’t rave enough about how amazing David is! I took an intensive 30 hour course with him and passed first time. I had previously taken lessons and did not enjoy driving at all; he instantly put me at ease and made the experience a thoroughly enjoyable one. I actually had a great week and went into the test feeling calm and (quietly) confident. I intend to recommend him to everyone I know who wants to learn. Best instructor ever!

Rebecca
July, 2023

Jean was exactly the driving instructor I needed, she knew exactly how much to push me so that I would learn, but at the same time didn’t overwhelm me. She made learning to drive really fun, I would definitively recommend to anyone at all nervous to start driving.

Pete has done a fantastic job of teaching me everything I need to know while also helping me to relax and enjoy driving. Thanks to him I passed first time!

Pete is an amazing instructor and adapted the lessons to what suited me and how I felt on the day, which gave me a massive boost for my confidence that let me pass after a 10 hour block of lessons. For anyone looking to learn loads and pass quickly I would recommend Pete every time!

I was taught by Paul McKenzie who was very professional and easy to feel at ease with, and I passed first time it was a great experience and such a lovely person to meet. Receiving this driving license has helped me secure my job which was very important to myself and my family. I cannot recommend this intensive driving school enough.

Steve smith

Jean is a wonderful teacher who was patient with me and adapted to me needs. I was a little worried at times but she re assured me and boosted my confidence. I would not have passed first time without her!!!

Ellie

Jean is an truly amazing teacher, she understood what my goals were and did everything she could to ensure I passed my test, and what a feeling it was to pass today. I failed my first test due to nerves and silly mistakes but she encouraged me to go again and said I could do it and I did, could not recommend her enough! If you want to learn quickly, how to drive safely and confidently give Jean a try 🙂

Josh
June, 2023

I would recommend Jean 100%! She helped me gain confidence with driving within a short space of time and helped me beat my driving anxiety. She is the most patient and caring instructor and I wouldn’t have learnt with anyone else. She helped me get through the struggle of learning with such ease!

Imogen Fletcher

Noah Best

What a team at Kent Intensive Driving School! I had manual lessons 10 years ago and couldn’t quite get the gear maneuvers so gave up. I decided to take up an automatic 20 hour course with Alison starting on a bank holiday weekend. Calm was her approach and attention to detail. Really made me feel comfortable and explained things in a way that my 9 week old daughter could understand! Unfotunatly Alison had to attend a family emergency so couldn’t make it on test date but like the professional that she is, arranged for Pete to take over 2 hours before the test. Another outstanding instructor who also helped me prepare for what was to come. I passed first time with 4 minors and can’t thank Alison and Pete enough. Over the moon! Thank you, guys!

Sam
June, 2023

I had the privilege of being taught by Alison, and I passed my driving test on the first try! Her expertise, guidance, and unwavering support were invaluable. Alison created a comfortable learning environment, building my confidence from day one. She provided constructive feedback, to prepare me for me my driving test. I highly recommend Alison to anyone seeking their driving licence. Thank you, Alison!

Jack Bridges
May, 2023

Can’t recommend Jean enough. When I first started lessons I knew literally nothing about driving and was ridiculously nervous, Jean made me feel so comfortable and was so patient with me, even when it took many many tries to fix certain issues! I had a lot of timing problems during my time learning and Jean was incredibly accommodating and always put 110% effort into making sure I was happy. Thankyou Jean!!!

Abbie
May, 2023

When I first sat in the car with Pete, I was a complete bag of nerves! With his patience and wisdom, he soon managed to calm those nerves and turned me into a calm and much more relaxed driver with a 30hour course. I managed to pass my test first time which I never in a million years thought would happen, absolutely life changing for me with an 18month old and another baby on the way! I couldn’t have done it without Pete, he’s a brilliant instructor, absolutely knows what he’s talking about and you’ll have lots of laughs! I can’t thank you enough Pete, thank you for changing my life.

Chloé Leibo
May, 2023

I had put off driving for so long and had abandoned previous attempts to learn but this time was completely different and that was all thanks to Alison. She was so patient and supportive which put me at ease and her brilliant teaching helped me pass first time! I’m absolutely thrilled and would recommend her to everyone.

Alexandra Miles
May, 2023

Alison is a wonderful instructor! She helped me build up my confidence and helped me pass my test first time. She’s very patient and adapts each individual person and lesson to suit them and their needs. She’s kind and patient and will miss our lessons. Couldn’t thank her enough for helping me through this week.

Ellie Dawes

Jean cannot be recommended highly enough. She was an excellent instructor for both our children. Always cheerful, personable and happy to go the extra mile with her students; she does a fantastic job and is highly professional.

Alexander Durtnell

Thank you so so much to Jean for helping me secure a first time pass. I went from having very little idea of how to operate a car to being a safe and confident driver in just 2 weeks. Can’t say a single bad thing about the experience, would recommend to anybody and everybody.

Thomas Highway

A huge thank you to Jean Pankhurst for teaching my son ,Tom who passed first time today. I can’t believe how much he’s developed in the time you had with him . He’s gone from a very anxious learner who didn’t look forward to lessons to a confident and safe driver who couldn’t wait to get out in the car with you. You have offered so much support and assistance x

Elaine Highway
April, 2023

Highly recommend this driving school! I’ve tried hourly lessons before but it’s easy to forget things when there’s a gap between them, and it sometimes felt like a rush to cram everything into each lesson. My instructor Alison was amazing – really knows her stuff, explained everything super clearly, and was very reassuring when I was anxious about driving. She made manoeuvres click when I’d struggled to get my head around them before. I did a 1 hour assessment lesson before booking a course and actually needed fewer hours than I expected. Well worth it!

Holly
April, 2023

Jean was a very patient, supportive instructor. She remained confident in me throughout the whole experience and didn’t give up until I passed. I would definitely recommend her!

Jessica Rosbrook
April, 2023

I had Alison as my instructor after many attempts at starting my driving and going through many instructors but with Alison I felt so at ease and comfortable. She calmed my nerves and helped me focus on what I needed to improve on and always praised me on things I did well which helped build up my confidence, she made it pleasurable to drive and didn’t make it feel like a chore! Alison was the best driving instructor I’ve had and coached me through my tests with the patience of a saint! 100000% recommend Alison as an instructor!!! Thank you so much!

Hannah Read
April, 2023

I had Alison as my driver instructor and she is an absolute god send, she put me at ease with my driving and come up with different ways to help me understand.

Alison was so patient with me and we had many laughs! when I passed I was an absolute wreck! but I couldn’t of done it with out Alison thank you so much!!!x

Jack smith
April, 2023

Today I passed my test first time with Pete. He was absolutely amazing, I really couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! He helped me with my nerves and all the anxiety leading up to the test. He was able to teach me all the manoeuvres, show me tell me questions and much much more in less than a week! Absolutely lovely man, made me feel very comfortable and most importantly he could have a laugh. Thank you again pete!! 😁

Bethany Fisher
April, 2023

Had a certain date I had to pass my test by for work and Jean helped me through it all and passed my test first time with only 20 hours. She was very supportive and brought out the positives no matter what happened. Made me feel very confident and comfortable in the car too. Many thanks to Jean for this.

Callum Buchanan
March, 2023

I could not have asked for a better driving instructor than Jean. She was so incredibly kind and patient. I tried learning to drive a manual at first, I really didn’t enjoy it and it put me off driving completely. Jean suggested I try automatic and helped to massively restore my confidence and find the joy in driving again. After one week of driving of an automatic car I passed my test first time.

Highly highly recommend her!

Alex M
March, 2023

Jean took on our daughter Rachel and spent quality time with her to unlock some of the personal barriers she was facing. Even after the first lesson Rachel said that Jean was great and really settled in with her. It took a few tests but Jean was always so positive and determined to work with Rachel. She was so kind when Rachel passed and did an amazing job. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

Andy Gadd
March, 2023

Pete was an amazing instructor, managed to iron out all my bad habits in less than a week with some extra time to get my manoeuvres perfect. Great bloke, can have laugh with him and I highly recommend Kent Intensive Driving School having used a few other schools myself. None of them come close in comparison to Kent Intensive.

William
March, 2023

Our daughter Rachel had Jean who was so patient and understanding. She was the first to point out the positives even when Rachel was unsuccessful in her tests. The proof was when she did pass which was testament to Jean’s instruction and personal commitment. Would highly recommend.

Alison is a wonderful driving instructor. If you’re a bit anxious like I was, she will put you at ease as she is kind, patient and clear.
Thank you so much Alison!!

Rebecca John
March, 2023

I had just over a month to learn how to drive an automatic, and for someone who had barely any driving experience, it was scary and intimidating from lesson 1 all the way to my last lesson. However, even if you don’t believe in yourself, your instructor will and will always be truthful with you and will push you to do your best! I honestly thought that with my extreme anxiety over driving I wasn’t going to pass, and no matter how many lessons I had I thought I would never be ready, but turns out all I needed was to trust in myself, keep on telling myself I can do it, and with the mistakes I had to – understand what I done, reflect on it, learn from it, and move on. If you’re like me don’t over think it! Trust yourself and your driver and be safe! I recommend this course to any and everyone and also recommend my instructor Alison as well as Mo for helping me pass 1st time 1 minor.

Emily Lumley
March, 2023

Thank you Pete for all your help with my driving. Peter was so calm and really helped me overcome the things I was worried about with my driving. Would recommend Pete to anyone was really easy to get on with, I think that’s really helpful for being in a car with someone for so many hours. Thanks again Pete for all the help 🙂

Pagan Godden

I 100% guarantee that if you have pete as your driving instructor you will be on the way to passing very quickly.
I passed first time and loved driving with Pete.

I 100% guarantee that if you have him as your driving instructor you will be on the right path to learn how to drive and also become confident on the road. I passed first time and I enjoyed every minute

I had the pleasure of being taught by Alison, who helped me pass my practical driving test first time (with 3 minors). Alison is a fantastic instructor, incredibly knowledgeable, with a calm and friendly approach putting me at ease from the first lesson we had together.

I would highly recommend Alison to drivers with all types of experience, new drivers and those with some experience whom may have given up or discontinued lessons previously for what ever reason (like myself).

Thank you for your help, and for the laughs we shared along the way! (Big thank you from Charley too!).

Mark Groves

I had Alison as a driving instructor and she was absolutely amazing, so bubbly and lovely. Started driving two weeks before my test and she explained everything so well and I really got the hang of it. Passed after two weeks and can’t thank Alison enough.

Jessica Daly
February, 2023

I had a really positive experience doing my intensive with Kent Intensive. I’d done lots of driving before but never gotten round to doing a test, and after a couple of years away from driving I was incredibly nervous and had no confidence, so I knew that an intensive was the best way for me to get up to speed. I had a brilliant experience with Alison, who was patient, thorough and encouraging, and thanks to her I was able to pass first time with one driving fault. I was so pleased that the course wasn’t as full on as I was expecting, as I had a series of 4 hour lessons over about a week with some days off, which i was grateful for as learning can be exhausting. Overall a brilliant experience and I’m so pleased to finally have those P plates!

Ellie M
February, 2023

I had Dave as my instructor and as a nervous driver I couldn’t have had anyone of a more patient and calming manner. Dave gave me so much confidence on the road and I can’t thank him enough!

Annie

Managed to pass my test first try and only 1 fault, I can highly recommend Kent intensive for anyone and that if you want an instructor that’s chilled out always helpful never shouts and can have a good laugh with make sure to ask for Jean 😁 she has been a massive help to insure that I pass my test and we had a good few laughs which makes things ten times better 😁

Nathan chapman
February, 2023

I couldn’t imagine a better driving instructor than Pete. From our very first session together, Pete made me feel relaxed and comfortable before building my skills and ensuring I understood everything. His exceptional teaching methods broke down the most daunting of driving scenarios into easily understandable processes, which really helped with confidence and control. I throughly enjoyed the great conversations I had with Pete and genuinely looked forward to lessons with him. He is a credit to the school and an all round great bloke. Can’t recommend enough.

Jack M
February, 2023

Booked 15 hours with David Knowles and he was really helpful for my test, he was very patient as I learned, and was a great teacher for everything I’d need on the test, made each lesson very relaxed and casual which helped to give me confidence on the road, couldn’t recommend him more.

Tom Brown
February, 2023

Booked 30 hours with Kent intensive. Pete was very helpful in getting me to a high standard of driving really nice calm bloke put me under no pressure and made me really comfortable whilst driving. Would highly recommend Pete and Kent intensive driving school 5 stars all round.

Jean is an incredibly considerate and patient instructor, with amazing teaching abilities. When I made errors during learning I felt I knew what they were for, but she managed time and time again to point out other things that I would never have thought about. Im glad that she took the time to teach me and I hope that anyone else that is taught under her gets the same incredible experience that I did. Thank you very much Jean!

Adam Hubbard

What can I say Jean was AMAZING !!!!

Ross Hodgetts
January, 2023

All I could have asked for from a 2 week intensive course. My instructor was Jean and I couldn’t have asked for anybody else, I probably ended up stressing her out a lot even after I failed the 1st test, but booking a second test and a few extra lessons with Jean I could not be more grateful for here teaching me. Thanks for getting me on the road Jean, I’d recommend you to anybody looking for lessons.

James Teague
January, 2023

Everything I could have wished from an intensive course (including a first-time pass!) was delivered to me by Pete and for that I can’t thank him enough! I found his teaching to be extremely effective and his relaxed nature really helped to ease the pressure that I was feeling leading up to test day. The pacing of the course and Pete’s utilisation of time was perfect in my eyes – I never once felt overwhelmed with information but was also challenged continuously which made me feel prepared. I would highly recommend an intensive course with Pete for anyone looking to obtain their driving license with hopes of passing first time. Thanks again!

Beauchamp Wiltshire

I worked with Alison initially on a short intensive course and then on a weekly lesson. Alison was friendly and made me feel very comfortable at all times. She explained things to me in a calm and patient way and was always happy for me to guide the lessons depending on what I felt I needed to focus on. On the day of my test Alison prioritised the areas I was nervous about in our lesson beforehand but was very reassuring when it came to making me feel ready. Ultimately a great learning experience and I couldn’t of done it without her.

Myles
December, 2022

A massive thank you to Alison, she was absolutely wonderful – calm, professional, super punctual, patient and very friendly. Being a mature student I was quite anxious and apprehensive, but Alison always managed to reassure me with her calming presence and guidance. Having had other driving instructors in the past, I can say that Alison was absolutely the best choice for me. Thank you Alison for first time pass (with only 3 minor mistakes🥳). Couldn’t have done it without you!

Irina

After struggling with one day a week lessons i decided to do an intensive course and contacted this driving school. With in a day or two i was contacted by jean and almost immediately i had my assessment, test and lessons booked. With Jean the lessons were very effective as well as chilled and layed back as each 4 hour lessons went fairly quickly. I learned everything I needed to know and practiced it all within the total of 20 hours of lessons that jean had decided for me. Choosing this driving school was a big reason to why i passed so quickly. Highly recommend

I did my 20 hour intensive course with Pete Barnett and passed with 3 minors, who was simply just so chilled out, funny and amazing, had lots of laughs and banter – it was like driving with an old pal! Thanks to him and his efforts, I feel a lot more confident and relaxed behind the wheel. Can’t wait to do my Pass Plus with him in New Year’s. I highly recommend others to go with Pete if they want to pass, they will not regret it! Thank you so much again Pete, I would’ve not passed my test 2nd time without you and your help.

“I booked my daughter onto Kent Intensive Driving School’s five-day course in October. She’d taken and failed her test before Covid (with a different driving school) and was very nervous. But Paul McKenzie was brilliant with her – brushed up all her driving skills and built her confidence and she has now passed. Result = one very happy daughter and very relieved mother!”

Kind regards

I cannot recommend Jean more highly. After a long struggle with on/off lessons over the years I finally found my feet with Jean. She gave me the confidence to drive and took away all my overthinking. I fully believe I would not have got to the point of passing without Jean and if anyone would ever ask me about my experience all I can say is Jean is the best of the best and if you want to feel safe and at ease while you drive then there is no person better to go to. Thank you Jean for your constant support throughout this whole driving experience.

Passed my test after 3 attempts. A massive thank you to Jean who was an amazing instructor! She pushed me to succeed, pointing out and correcting my mistakes whilst making me feel confident behind the wheel.

Had a 25 hour course with Pete who made it a fantastic experience. Nice guy and very funny. Would recommend this company / Pete to anyone considering learning to drive. Made it a breeze. Again want to say a big thank you for everything you taught me!

Steven Parkinson

After going through 3 driving instructors I decided to do go to this company for a weeks course, I completed 20 hours altogether with the help of Alison. She ensured I was completely ready for my test and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. I highly recommend this company for anyone who is wanting to pass as soon as they can and is struggling as they will be patient with you and they also know how it feels to be a learner!!

One more thing, I just want to say a massive thank you to Alison for helping me through it all and never doubted me!

Dave is so calming and makes everything feel so much easier, I enjoyed every minute of driving with him. I passed today, can not thank him enough!

Antonia Thompson

As an older, completely in-experienced learner, Jean was absolutely fantastic.
She was calm, patient and reassuring throughout the course. More importantly she builds confidence and knowledge as you progress.
An utterly enjoyable experience, but ultimately it works. 29 hours over 2 and half weeks- done, passed 1st time.
Would recommend to anybody

Wonderful experience with my instructor Pete who was very approachable, helpful, and reassured me a lot whilst learning. Helped me pass my driving test first time. 10/10 would recommend this school to everyone I know looking to learn as quickly as possible.

I would like to thank my amazing instructor Jean for putting in so many hours of hard work to get to passing my driving test. I had no confidence and always doubted my capabilities but Jean helped me settle my nerves and drive safely.

I would highly recommend her to anyone doing there lessons as Jean was recommended to me.

Thank you so much for everything Jean Pankhurst.

Thank you to Pete who helped me pass first time, could not recommend a better instructor. He particularly helped to boost my confidence whilst driving and always gave valuable feedback which massively increased my ability to drive! He is really easy to get along with and a great laugh.

Thank you to Pete who made learning to drive so fun! I couldn’t of asked for a better instructor to get me through the stress of learning to drive and test day!

Such a great instructor couldn’t recommend anyone better!

As for the course itself I loved it! Sped up the process of learning to drive!

Molly Saunders

I had my course with Jean and honestly she was such a good teacher who was always patient with me when I messed up or got a little overwhelmed. I would highly recommend going through this driving school as they arrange everything and make the entire process so easy.

Isabelle Stone
September, 2022

I am so grateful for the support and dedication that Jean gave to my lessons. An intensive course was definitely the best route for me to take as I had been learning to drive on and off for the past couple of years!! Jean was determined to get me through my test, and gave me back my confidence to pass within just a week. Although I did my lessons in my car without dual control, Jean was still calm and showed confidence in my driving which made me 10x more relaxed. I couldn’t have gotten through my test without her, and will definitely be popping back for a motorway lesson. Thank you again Jean for all your help 🙂 xx

I was in the right spot of bother in July. I had been let down by my previous course provider and had been given a short deadline by my new employer to have my license sorted otherwise I would have been without a job!
Thanks to the work of both Jean and Gavin, they helped me go from having no driving experience in July to passing the first time in September with only 4 faults after 27 hours of driving.
Between the pair of them, they rearranged their schedules to accommodate my needs, and the blend of teaching styles they provided helped me develop my skills exponentially.
I would highly recommend Kent Intensive Driving School and, in particular, Jean and Gavin, as had it not been for their continued efforts, I would not be in my current position.
Thank you, Jean and Gavin!

I’ve just competed my driving course with Pete and it has been a hugely enjoyable experience. I was nervous to begin with but Pete’s calm, friendly and supportive nature put me at ease throughout the lessons and test. Pete is extremely accommodating and adapted the lessons to make sure I could perform at my best. The biggest thank you for supporting me and helping me pass (first time!).

What an amazing experience learning to drive with Jean has been. A lot of patience was definitely needed but with Jean’s constant support and guidance, we always got there in the end. Always going above and beyond (and even taking my provisional from me the day before my test so I wouldn’t forget it) Jean truly has been an amazing instructor who made sure everything was set for the big test day!
Jean’s a brilliant instructor and I can’t thank her enough for getting me passed in such a short time!

I have just passed my test, on my second turn and I’m really pleased to finally be able to drive. I would like to thank Alison for all her time and patience in helping me achieve this.

Alison is such a great Driving Instructor; she is really genuine, reassuring and calming. She made me feel really comfortable and confident behind the wheel. At first, I was quite nervous and Alison has helped me overcome this, to the point where I can honestly say I enjoy driving now…

I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons. I will miss them (and her)

I did an intense driving course with Paul and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to pass their driving test, especially with a busy schedule.

Sam Jeffery

I can not thank Alison enough for the help she gave me. I’ve had a couple different instructors but none of them had the patience like Alison did. I highly recommend Alison as a teacher an I’ve already pass her details on to friends an family

Thank you so much Jean for all your help, always felt at ease when driving. Quickly able to improve and learn from my mistakes with the assistance of Jean, resulting in me passing with 1 minor. Would definitely recommend if you are looking to become confident in your driving and pass your test.

Logan Copham
August, 2022

I couldn’t recommend Alison enough. As a generally very anxious person, she knew exactly how to calm my nerves and never made me feel bad for making mistakes. She is so lovely and chatty, it creates such a relaxed environment for you to learn in. Alison was my second driving instructor and I truly don’t think I would ever have been able to pass without her.

Francesca Molloy
August, 2022

I had Jean Pankhurst as my driving instructor and I could not recommend her enough. She was not only patient and understanding, but also incredibly kind and chatty when on our lessons. Without her expert help, there is no way I would have passed my test. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Jean, and to whoever is her next pupil I have no doubt that she will know how to help you pass! Thank you so much Jean!

Tom Burge

Thanks to Dave Knowles for being very positive and professional.
I started trying to get a UK driver’s license three years ago, then covid happened in 2020. My route to passing my test was a difficult and long one but after doing an intensive course with Dave, I passed today.

Uche Erinoso

Laura Wheeler

I couldn’t have asked for a better learner driver experience! Alison has been so encouraging and accommodating from the start of our lessons together and she truly cares about her students. Even when she was unwell, she arranged cover so I didn’t fall behind or miss a single lesson. Throughout our lessons she located my weaknesses and worries and helped me overcome them in a supportive, patient and calm environment. I always felt at ease in the car with Alison (and we had a lot of laughs too which always helps!). Now I’ve passed my test, I feel like the confident, competent and safe driver I’ve always wanted to be. Thank you so much Kent Intensive Driving School! Couldn’t recommend enough!

Olivia Starr-Morrison

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kent Intensive Driving Course and in particular Alison. She was great at preparing me for my test, correcting bad habits that I had picked up driving with others and teaching me tricky manoeuvres. She was professional but at the same time very friendly and encouraging and certainly helped build my confidence over the week.

She put me completely at ease with the follow up to my test date and made sure that any of my worries were overcome! Absolutely loved my lessons with her and can’t thank her enough for helping me get where I am!

Alicia Steel

I couldn’t recommend Alison enough, she made me feel confident while driving and was amazing company! She was the reason I managed to pass first time.

Saskia Lean

Jean Pankhurst is the most wonderful driving instructor that my son had the privilege of learning to drive with and passed his test first time today! She is caring, supportive, made him feel at ease throughout each and every lesson and ensured he understood the importance of becoming a safe driver. She was patient throughout, calm and reassuring, but at the same time has a respectful, assertive manner when needed to ensure constant safety.

Jean utilises a whole variety of roads to build a drivers confidence, gradually building up to more testing routes.

Jean is fully committed and passionate about her work and linked in with us as parents, to ensure that any practice we did with our son was relevant and suitable.

It is way more than just a job for Jean, it’s her life!

Violette Bourne

He made me feel so at ease when driving and is very patient.
Couldn’t fault Pete one bit, if it was for him I wouldn’t of been able to pass first time, couldn’t of done it with out him.
Thank you so much yet again Pete.

Pete was fantastic with me from day one where he taught me manoeuvres ranging from reverse bay parking to the dreaded parallel park… He taught me through it so thoroughly I breezed it in the test! He constantly told me how to improve and what to look out for on the test as well. Thanks again Pete, miracle worker 👏

Alex

Jean is an absolute gem and I would 100% recommend her to anyone but especially those nervous about driving!
Jean will undoubtedly agree that I was an absolute nervous wreck from day one allllll the way to the last lesson! She kept me calm, remained professional but also got me where I needed to be, I’m so grateful for having Jean’s skill, patience and positive attitude to have taught me all I need to know!
Thank you to Jean at Kent Intensive for getting me my license FIRST TIME that I never thought I’d get!

Kirstie
May, 2022

I had a great time learning with Pete! He is calm and knowledgeable, the exact combination you want in a driving instructor. I was a bit nervous about learning to drive in the UK, as I’ve originally learned how to drive in the opposite side of the car and the opposite side of the road. Pete made it simple and fun! I passed first time with only a few minors. Thanks Pete!

Carolina
May, 2022

I just had my successful driving test with a few minors, for the first try! I always thought that I will never be able to drive because I was really afraid and I always thought it is just too complicated. But I had a baby and I decided to look for a flexible and patient instructor. It was during Covid, I had a newborn so it wasn’t easy to find someone great. For me, the communication part was also important as English is not my first language and I needed someone whom with we can easily understand each other, on every level. For my biggest surprise, I found Alison (actually she found me), who exceeded all my expectations and I could finally stop worrying about everything and just focus actually on how enjoyable driving is. For my (and my family’s) biggest surprise my doubts and fears were completely gone, even after our first lesson! With her help, I could easily learn the basics and then everything. She is patient, flexible, explaining and communicating easily and you can feel that even when she has basically no more time or capacity, her pupils are extremely important for her! I am really thankful to her for teaching me how to be a safe and (not too) cautios driver!:) The lessons was fun and we could always plan ahead, even when we had to reschedule, which was really comforting for me. It was even better that we share our excitement for our other hobbies, so it didn’t feel like a lesson at all!:) I still can’t really believe that I arrived to this point with her help. Nearly after every lesson I told her “I still love driving”, and I am certain that after being on the roads for years, I will still be saying this – next to her clever road mantras, which are extremely helpful:) Thank you Alison for all the great time, talks and laughs, I couldn’t even wished for a better instructor!

Alexandra Kastner

I had a great time learning with Dave! He made me feel comfortable and corrected me in a easy to understand way. I didn’t feel like any question was too silly and I always felt confident before we moved on to learning something new

Alison is an amazing instructor. I had been driving for over 9 years and needed a UK driver’s licence but had picked up a lot of bad driving habits! Alison was super patient, calm, professional and understanding. She tailored a series of lessons to shake the bad habits, build my skills and confidence and got me test ready in a short space of time. I would highly recommend anyone to Alison Leonard’s driving school.

Sarah Thompson
April, 2022

Honestly can’t thank Jean enough, made me feel comfortable at all times and she really helped keep me calm whilst learning. If I could give more than 5 stars I would, the whole process was easy and explained to me at all times. I’ve had a course at another company and it didn’t come remotely close to Kent intensive. You’d be silly not to come here to get passed.

Cade Allen
April, 2022

I booked a 15 hour course with Gavin after several years since failing with a previous instructor. He helped me build my confidence back up and pass first time! I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to pass their test

Highly recommend Pete, I have had a few driving instructors over the last couple of years of learning and none of them have made me feel as relaxed as I was with Pete teaching me. Really good at helping you get bad habits out of your system and as a result of his lessons I passed.

Kieran Russell
March, 2022

Learning with Jean was a pleasure. Every lesson I would come away feeling I had learnt so much. Even when challenged Jean made sure I remembered steps by using anecdotes. As a learner I felt safe in the car whilst also being pushed to achieve my best. Not only does Jean prepare you for the test but she also prepares you for driving after the test. On the day of my exam she made me feel at ease and reassured Me I was ready! I couldn’t recommend Jean enough. I will miss our conversations and her advice in the car. Thanks for everything Jean!!!

Juanita Fleming

Jean ensured Jesse had the correct amount of lessons actually decreasing his hours following his first session and helped him pass his test as quickly as possible – would 💯 recommend and will be back for number 3 son 🚗

Jesse Flisher

I used to dread driving until I met Jean. She made me feel at ease during every lesson and was just extremely lovely. Jean is great at her job and really helped me to learn through materials, reference points etc. It is clear that Jean cares about her students & tries to be as flexible as she can with lessons (despite how hectic it is atm!). I am really grateful to Jean for helping me pass & would highly recommended her to anyone! Massive thanks!!

Daniella

A huge thank you to Mo for helping me pass first time today! She was incredible every step of the way – through the tears, laughter and nerves.

I can’t thank Alison enough for her time and patience with me. She believed in me when I didn’t even believe in myself. After 10 long years of trials and tribulations I wish I’d gone/met Alison all those years ago. The patience and support she gave where above and beyond and I can’t recommend her enough. I will remember this day for the rest of my life and the wonderful women that helped me achieve it. Thanks again x

Lauren
March, 2022

Alison, was a great instructor! She was very patient with me within the areas I went wrong. She was able to make me pass first time, which is brilliant. She also took time out of her day to teach me on the day she has off work in preparation for my test which I will never forget the dedication she has to her peers.

Ashley

Despite all the trials and tribulations I had faced with driving, Pete always sought the best for me, allowing me to pass first time with no minors.

Pete is without doubt an excellent instructor. He made me relaxed and calm within 5 minutes of our first lesson and since then has helped me pass first time. He is a top notch bloke who not only knows what he is doing but genuinely cares about you learning and passing your test. 10/10 any student would be lucky to learn from him

Matt Edwards
February, 2022

Since my first lesson with Jean, she was quick to identify my weak areas and helped me to come up with strategies to overcome those. I really have been through such a journey with her and she was really good at knowing how to help build up my confidence. Thanks so much for helping me pass my test! I am now so much more confident on the road thanks to you.

I just passed my test with Jean this week. She is just fantastic!! I learnt to drive a few years ago with another instructor and had a pretty negative experience which made me a nervous driver. Jean takes a really patient, positive and encouraging approach which put me at ease and she explains things really clearly (even getting out the car to demonstrate blind spots and parking bays!). I had a wonderful time learning with Jean and really feel like I’ve embedded the knowledge to be a safe driver. Although I didn’t pass first time (nerves on the day!), Jean was incredibly quick to get me another test which I passed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kent Intensive and Jean in particular to all my friends and family. Thanks again Jean! 🙂

I was very nervous about starting driving but thanks to Pete my confidence grew tenfold! He’s a great, honest and really knowledgeable instructor. Thank you!

Alison is an excellent instructor, she is always calm and punctual. She has detailed driving knowledge and was able to answer all of my questions, which provided a solid foundation for me to develop my own driving skills.

Would definitely recommend Jean!
Great driving instructor, was very clear with her explanations. I was made very to feel comfortable straight away. Booked 10 hour crash course and passed with 2 minors!

Just completed a course with Pete and thanks to his expertise I passed first time with only 2 faults, I would highly recommend him to anyone.
