“I was a driving examiner with the DSA/DVSA for eleven years and I can highly recommend John.

He took on the task of tutoring my son and daughter who are completely different in personality/confidence and both have been successful. Even with the experience I have I couldn’t have taught them. Well done John and thank you.”

Martin Venus, Father of Hayley Venus, Gillingham

“Highly recommend Dave. He is so professional, patient and understanding. He made the whole driving experience for my daughter Charlotte enjoyable and fun. He was always punctual and every week we got a reminder of the day and time of the lesson.

Will definitely be using Dave again for my son. If you want a good driving school and an excellent driving instructor you won’t go wrong with Dave and Redy2Drive.

They are a good start to making sure your son or daughter become competent drivers”

The Main Reason I chose Kelvin White Driving School

“What a brilliant instructor!

When starting to learn to drive, Dave immediately put me at ease. He gave me the confidence in my own ability and was patient when teaching new manoeuvres.

Dave made a real effort to be encouraging and I really enjoyed my lessons with him.

Passing first time with only one minor was a real credit to his teaching.

I would 100% recommend him and can’t thank him enough!

Thank you, Dave!”

Lisa McDermott, ​Gillingham


“I set out to have my licence in 1 month and thanks to Redy2Drive, and in particular Dave Bond, I passed my driving test 1 day before the end of the month.

I only realised how bad my previous instructor was when I had my first lesson with Dave, It was a night and day difference and before the first hour ended, I knew that he was worth every penny and I knew that I would be driving in no time.

I only had 4 lessons with Dave and in those 4 lessons, I was able to pass my test with 6 minors. We built a great friendship and understanding of each other and I got to learn that he has a real passion for what he does.

Because of this passion, he is able to take the time to understand you and teach you in a way that would be most effective to you. He is very cool headed, relaxed and down to earth and he creates an environment that you can really relax in. I was never afraid to make mistakes and as a result of that, I didn’t make many because he kept me calm and focused.

Whenever I did make a mistake or two, he didn’t suddenly change his mood, he just explained to me what I did and why it was wrong and as a result I was able to learn from my mistakes quickly without even feeling bad about making them in the first place.

Dave took the time to build and maintain a friendship with me throughout my lessons and it is still greatly appreciated. Lessons with him is basically driving around with your mate while you learn to drive.

It doesn’t feel like a teacher and student environment but more of a casual Sunday drive, only difference being he is an excellent teacher. He covers EVERYTHING you will need and have you confident and ‘ready2drive’ by test day.

Passing was bitter sweet because it meant that I no longer needed any lessons and our journey would end. I HIGHLY recommend Dave Bond at “Redy2Drive” for anyone wanting to learn to drive and I will be sending my friends and family in his direction.

It was a great journey and thank you so much again…”

    If you’re looking for a Professional Driving School that comes highly recommended with a particularly high first time pass rate we are the school for you. Redy2Drive Driving School serves the county of Kent bringing you the highly trained driving instructors you need to pass your practical driving test.

    Our instructors are male or female with a wide variety of levels of experience, however all bring the very latest techniques & methods to the table. Our highly popular “try us & see” service gives learner drivers the opportunity to see if we are suitable for their needs before booking additional lessons.

    Like many other instructors, we also provide discounts for beginners & new students & we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not entirely happy with our service. We also offer large discounts for block bookings of 10 lessons or more.

    As mentioned in our opening paragraph we are particularly proud of our first time pass rate which is considerably above the national average. What is our secret? We have a proven system that ensures that our driving instructors follow our best practice guidelines & procedures.

    Our structured system will feature a complete plan of action broken down for you so you can see where you are up to with regard to your progress within the driving school syllabus & what you need to do to get to the level where you are ready to take your test.

    Our Instructors will issue you with a report card that will detail each step of your progress. It will demonstrate the areas that you might need more practice whilst also showing the things you are particularly strong with.

    We do encourage practice with family & friends provided it is used in a way that will assist & improve your driving abilities ready for your next lessons. Ideally you would practice the areas that have been highlighted for you on your report card so to reduce the length of time you need to cover them in your actual lessons.

    For example if you are struggling with your three point turn manoeuvre then it would make sense to go somewhere quiet & practice as often as you can whilst out with friends & family. Once you can demonstrate you are able to carry out the procedure confidently & error free then your instructor will then move you on to the next step of the syllabus.

    However if your instructor thinks you need more practice you will continue where you left off until you have mastered it. This example demonstrates the importance of using your practice time wisely.

    You should ensure that you complete your theory examination as quickly as possible. This will benefit you as it gives you a better understanding of the practical side. It will also allow for your instructor to book you in for your test as soon as you are ready without any unnecessary delays.
