As it's their first attempt, they have no previous test experience to draw on, so well done Jade! Nick sends his best wishes and congratulates Jade on a great result and all of us atJohn Lowe Drivingwish Jade the best for the future, welcome her to the first time pass club and thank her for using our driving school.

Evie King passed first time.
"I really want to thank my instructor, Tom Lowe, for helping me to pass my test and it's wonderful to pass first time! Tom was always so reliable and really knew how to treat me as a learner. John Lowe Driving is a great school and I really recommend them, I've got so many plans now and feel very confident and plan to drive the way I've been shown, as it must be the safest way."
Evie King, Gloucester.
Brandom Crossum Has His Car All Ready.
"Fantastic day, I've just passed my test first time and things couldn't be better. I've got my own car waiting, a Seat Leon, and as a keen golfer it will help me to get around really easily with my clubs and other equipment. My driving instructor, Martyn Brewer, made the whole process enjoyable and always had time for a laugh and a chat about golf, as he's a very decent player. If you are thinking of learning to drive, contact John Lowe Driving and ask for Martyn, they won't let you down."
Brandon Crossum, Gloucester.
"I passed without any driving faults at all!"
"I've just finished my driving lessons with John Lowe Driving and I'm so pleased to have passed first time. My driving instructor was Jackie Kaur and her coaching methods were so good that I passed without any driving faults at all!
I feel really confident to start driving on my own now and can't wait to get started. I really recommend Jackie, as she taught me so well"
"My lessonsare going really well with John Lowe Driving and I get on very well with my instructor, Martyn Brewer. I've had about 10 lessons so far and seem to have covered an awful lot and I feel more confident each time. This is my first attempt at driving and I chose John Lowe Driving Schoolbecause other students at Denmark Road sixth form said how good they are. Martyn has got me studying for my theory test already, there's a lot to cover, so I'm pleased I have started early. Having lessons helps a lot with the theory work, and it's going well."
Freya Savage, Gloucester.
"It's a bonus to pass first time."
"If you want good driving lessons, I recommend John Lowe Driving, as I've just passed my test first time! My driving instructor was Jackie Kaur, so make sure you get her, she's really good at giving the learner responsibility and once you get used to that, it really speeds things up, as you are thinking for yourself and not just being told what to do.
"Fabulous! My lessons were really good with my driving instructor, Jackie Kaur, who made sure I was fully equipped for my driving test, and to prove it, I've just passed first time. Jackie was very thorough on our lessons, making sure I could cope before moving on to a new topic, and always fun to be with.
I really recommend her and John Lowe Driving."
Passed, Shane Heaven of Gloucester.
Congratulations to Shane Heavenon a much deserved first time driving test pass from Gloucester test centre on January 17th, 2017, with his driving instructor, Tom Lowe.

Alicia Daley, Gloucester.
"It's going really well."
"I've only had four driving lessons with my instructor,Martyn Brewerand they are going really well. I am already a motorcycle rider, so I am at home on the road, but driving a car requires a different approach, which is what I am getting used to. Martyn has already taken me onto some main roads and I have also been getting used to roundabouts in a car. Martyn is also a motorcyclist, which helps a lot, as he understands the different requirements. I'm really pleased to be withJohn Lowe Driving and to have Martyn as my driving instructor." Matthew Heath, Gloucester.
"I have just passed my test with no faults at all."
"I have just passed my driving test with a clean sheet, no faults at all! I'm so pleased and must thank my driving instructor, Nick Butters, of John Lowe Driving for coaching me up to this standard. It makes me feel confident in my ability to cope on todays roads, and Nick has told me to drive as I did on the test to keep as safe as possible. I really enjoy driving and passing my test like this is brilliant and I can't wait to get going on my own."
Charlotte Clissold, Gloucester.
"I passed first time and feel confident."
" I was recommended to John Lowe Driving by some of my friends and having done my own research, I got in touch. Lis was very friendly and informative and I asked for Nick Butters to be my instructor. Nick was always on time in a nice car and made the whole process as easy as possible. I'm really glad to have had him for my instructor, as I passed first time and feel very confident."
