Able2drive is the best driving school I have came across. I couldn't of asked for a better instructor than Jon, always making you feel comfortable and doing anything he can to make you succeed. I've never met anyone with as much patience and a good sense of humour as Jon! Always willing to go the extra mile for his customers. Best instructor!

Jon is a brilliant instructor who is determined to see all his students succeed. His wealth of experience and clever driving hacks make taking your test something to look forward to, not to dread. If you're looking for an instructor who you can have a laugh with as well as learn with - you're in the right place!

I would just like to say what a great driving instructor you are, I never would have got there without you! I always felt at ease on my lessons and we always had some funny conversations! You were very patient with me and my driving. I always recommend you too people when they talk about starting to drive. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in with me. Top driving school!! The best!!

Jon is a great driving instructor! I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed from my very first lesson to my last couple of hours before my test. You get straight into driving rather than spend the first few hours going over basic knowledge. If there's anything you're not sure with or comfortable doing then you can ask Jon without feeling silly as he explains thoroughly and will ensure you practise.. with some natural and reassuring humour in there to keep an enjoyable atmosphere whilst driving. I'd highly recommend able2drive and Jon as an instructor. I passed first time and enjoyed every minute! thanks Jon:)
Passed on 26 Jun 2014
Jon is the best tutor, he gave me confidence to pass my test. I would 100% recommend Jon to everyone because he is understanding,trustworthy,friendly and works hard to help you achieve. I am very grateful as he helped me gain much more independence. I will be using Jon again in the near future to give my daughters lessons. Thank you Jon now i'm ABLE TO DRIVE. :-)

I had lessons with jon who i think is great. I really miss our lessons and his singing (and sweet swapping lol) i was always very scared to drive until i met jon he helped me start to enjoy driving and was very professional and with that i also passed first time. Would highly recommend :-)
Passed on 26 Mar 2014
By far the best instructor! I always looked forward to my driving lessons with Jon because he made me feel comfortable and confident with my driving as well as joking with me too! Enjoyed his churpy humour-especially when I was worried about my driving skills! So helpful and always managed to schedule me last minute lessons when I came back from uni. I had two lessons with Ben before my first test who put my mind at ease with all my theory questions! Passed second time with 2 minors- definitely recommended to my brother and friends!!
Passed on 24 Feb 2014
This man is fantastic. I drove on and off with Jon for 2 years. He was a great support with driving and everything else. I do miss my lessons with him. He's extremely funny and made me feel comfortable from the start to finish. Jon targeted my unsure areas stright away and made me feel comfortable with them. I passed first time with Jon and everyone questioned how? But not Jon he had every confidence in me. Even though I spent my entire test crying haha. But overall I would recommend able2drive to everyone. As Jon and Ben do a fab job :)
Passed on 08 Feb 2014
What can I say, Jon was the best instructor ever. Started my lessons in September and passed by mid December, lots of 2 hour lessons paid off.
Best thing is they let you drive all the time your in the car (apart from your first lesson), no sitting in a lay by talking about how to drive they teach you while you drive.
Can't recommend them enough, my husband and teenage boys will all be learning with either Jon or Ben from able 2 drive.

I was taught by Jon but passed with Ben. Loved every minute of my learning, always felt at ease & comfortable, would recommend to anyone x

Jon has been a fantastic driving instructor. I am in my mid 40s and learning to drive was a daunting prospect. Jon is very understanding and a great judge of character, he sussed out where my lack of confidence was coming from and helped me to over come it very quickly.
Jon uses his great sense of humour and lightning reactions to make you feel safe and at ease with your driving. He also lets YOU drive by using the duel controls as little as possible from the start. I completely recommend Jon to any one that thinks they will never learn to drive or are very nervous of the road. I felt both and I have just passed my test with only 4 minor points!!!!
Thank you so much Jon. I will miss laughing at your singing!!
Passed on 15 Oct 2012
Thanks Jon. Couldn't have done it without you. I took driving lessons with Jon after a disagreement with a previous instructor as she wasn't giving me a full hour lesson. Mostly talking and theory for 20 minutes. Also a little impatient. So thanks again. Your Xmas prezzy is on its way. :-)

I was a pupil with Jon Ford at 'Able2Drive' from November 2008 - May 2009'. I was 24 at the time and had never driven before. Jon quickly made me feel at ease in a car, quickly building my confidence. The good thing about working with Jon is that his tuition is clearly focused around the test. This outlook meant that I quickly racked up the miles. Jon has a great attitude to getting people passed. There's no sign of 'clock watching' or countless lessons that you hear of with other driving schools. Jon's attitude is very much 'the sooner I get you passed, the sooner I can take more people on'. Jon gave me the confidence to drive, with his tips (such as 'don't speed towards a red light') remain with me today. I would not hesitate in the slightest at recommended Able2Drive as the driving school of choice within Nottinghamshire.
Passed on 08 Jun 2009
Jon taught me to drive nearly 14 years ago. I passed first time, so have 3 other members of my family. I am always recommending Jon and Able2drive. More recently my step son is learning with Jon's son Ben! Jon is an excellent driving instructor, always put me at ease. Even though we never did win the lottery with our joint ticket, so never got to bug that race horse "Clifton Mel" :-)

Absolutely brilliant, best instructors, make you feel so comfortable and helped me pass first try !! Definitely recommend to starting drivers !!!!

Ben is an absolutely amazing instructor. As well as giving excellent techniques on a variety of things including manoeuvres and positions on a road about, i also had a laugh with him. It's not silent which made me more comfortable. Thank you Ben, if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have passed first time :).

Such an amazing instructor, patient and extremely helpful when you make mistakes. Couldn't have found a better instructor who made me feel more at ease when driving! Thankyou so much, Ben!
Passed on 08 March 2017
Definitely the best driving school I'd been with. Couldn't of asked for a more relaxed and friendly atmosphere with driving techniques that are easy to follow and really do work for all cars! Could not recommended a driving school more highly the Able 2 Drive! Absolutely cracking!
Passed on 23 May 2016
I had a lot of trouble with driving coming from a different instructor who taught me bad habits and not a lot when it came to driving, when I came to Ben he helped me get out of all my habits and learn to drive correctly. I had a lot of issues with anxiety and illness but Ben took the time to help me and still was able to get me to pass first time.
He was patient even when I wasn't with it all and helped me loads, is a really nice guy and would 100% recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive.
Thankyou Ben, I wouldn't have done it without you.

Ben is amazing and so patient! I suffer with anxiety on a day to day basis and I was so nervous about starting my driving lessons. From my very 1st lesson Ben has always kept me calm and at ease.

Changing driving schools to Able 2 drive was such a good decision to make, Ben has been a brilliant driving instructor from beginning to end.

Amazing instructor, funny and understanding always flexible. Great at boosting confidence and easy to get along with. Had my past my test with flying colours, excellent instructor!
Recommend to anyone!
Passed on 11 May 2015
I couldn't recommend Ben enough to anyone looking to learn to drive. I'd given up driving for a year or so after having a couple of lessons, and felt immediately at ease behind the wheel during lessons with Ben. And that's coming from someone who would easily give myself the title of the most nervous driver in Nottingham! Can't thank him enough as I know I wouldn't have passed had Ben not been my instructor. Thanks again!

I really enjoyed my time driving with Ben. At first I was really nervous and scared about driving but he helped to boost my confidence . He was always patient and never made me feel stupid if I made a mistake.
I would highly recommend Ben to any learner, I am very grateful as I don't think I would have been able to pass first time without his teaching.

I learnt to drive with Ben and all I can say is what a star! From the very first lesson he filled me with confidence, determination and always put me at ease. Despite several health issues, he always urged me onwards and upwards, getting me through my test first time around! I won't (and haven't) hesitated to recommend him to anyone looking to get behind the wheel and will be the first person I call when my son is ready to learn to drive in a few years time.

When first starting to drive I was lacking in confidence on my ability to drive and was very nervous. Ben being a great teacher brought me out of my shell and made me find the confidence I needed. I passed with only 2 minors.. So I would like to say a big Thankyou to Ben for all he did and I would recommend him to any pupil young or older.. Cheers Ben ???? Keep up the good work fella ????

Totally nervous driver after a bad experience, got back behind the wheel, driving around after an hour. Really got my confidence up and I had about 15 lessons and passed my test. Really honest and genuine, after 5 lessons was advised to cut the lesin length down - not after the money. Always spent my lessons driving round and feel a confident most of all.
