Jon Dwyer is a pleasure to learn with. I’m a professional educator, so I can testify that you WILL lean, quickly, to be a much better driver. You will also have a very high chance of passing your test when he says you’re ready. He’s courteous and on time and knows a great deal. You will learn not only how to execute all manoeuvres exactly but how to anticipate and concentrate, and act deliberately and confidently. I scored a very solid performance in my test, all due to his skill. Thanks, Jon!

My son Jim learnt ,enjoyed every minute and passed first time with the ever patient,cheerful and lovely Vince.

We live in London but after several false starts with instructors  and on the glowing recommendations of friends resident in the area we opted for an intensive course in Devon with Ice and Vince.

Driving in Devon allowed a much greater range of experience – driving over 20mph ! ,joining fast traffic on dual carriage ways , than is possible in London. And negotiating narrow country lanes is excellent practice for threading one’s way through narrow city roads where one is constantly having to squeeze past parked cars and oncoming traffic.

And we had a lovely holiday to boot – I see a gap in the market for holidays for families with older offspring. Parents can relax while their children are happily and gainfully employed learning  to drive.

Vince is a rare person in the world of disinterested and bored people who are going through the motions to earn a crust . There was no comparison between him and the instructors we came across in London . He’s genuinely interested in teaching people not only to pass the test but to drive safely. Ice are lucky to have him .

I would highly recommend ICE Driving School to anyone who wants pass first time and be confident on the road. My instructor, Phil Roberts, was fully aware of my driving intentions and ensured that I progressed and achieved every lesson. I was very conscientious and was keen on perfecting everything, and so with Phil’s endless patients and faith in my ability I passed first time with one minor. I am very pleased I selected ICE as they offered a high standard of professional driving instruction and helped me succeed my driving goal of passing in less than four months

After spending a over a year with another school and getting no where, I made the switch to driving with Ice. Probably one of the better decisions I’ve ever made, my instructor Jon was great, very patient and calm through out our lessons and I passed within three months of having him as my instructor. His positivity towards even the smallest accomplishments is what really boosted my confidence when driving and started to make the lessons fun and I when I told myself I couldn’t Jon showed me how I could.

I’m really enjoying driving now and couldn’t have done it without Jon and Ice so a big thank you and would always recommend to anyone.

I started my lessons with a local school and was very disheartened with my progress, when my friend told me that she had passed, having started after me! I changed to Ice and was amazed with my progress, the teaching was fantastic with proper diagrams and easy explanations, my old instructor was no comparison to the quality of Ice, I was motivated
and passed first time in no time.

You gave me wings! I am so pleased I chose Ice Driving School, my instructor Phil was fantastic, whenever I said “I can’t” he showed me I could, everything was explained clearly and with endless patience, however many times I got it wrong! A thousand thank you’s to Ice Driving School.

I was told that learning to drive would be a frightening experience, but learning with ice made it completely the opposite. My instructor was Vince, and he was extremely nice. I was taught with incredible patience and at a comfortable pace, in a comfortable atmosphere. I Never would have thought I would say it but I greatly enjoyed learning to drive!

Vince was extremely patient and encouraging giving me the confidence required to tackle any road situation independently. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive in a relaxed no-pressure environment and would highly recommend that you do the same!
