Kerry Frost

"Thank you so much to JSF Driving School and Jim for enabling me to achieve my dream this morning! Over the moon! Jim’s advice and patience was second to none, I don’t know how you always manage to stay calm. Had the best experience and cannot wait to get on the road. Thank you again."

Cameron Watkins

"Jim and JSF Driving were great. I highly recommend them to any of my friends or family. I received quality feedback when I needed it, which really helped. Passing my test means the world to me because I live in the Forest of Dean and it's hard to get around. No more asking my family and friends for lifts!"  Well deserved pass for Cameron Watkins at Gloucester Test Centre on 16th October, 2017. Guess who will be able to come and go as they please from Flaxley from now on... stay safe mate!

"Driving a car is not something that has come naturally to me so it's been a lot of work, but Jim has been so patient and helpful while I slowly build my confidence that the whole thing has been a really enjoyable experience. Although in the end my nerves let me down, and it took 3 attempts to pass, it's a lot more rewarding now for how much more experience I've gained. Jim is an excellent teacher with endless patience and knowledge. I can't thank him enough!" Celebrations and well done to Kat Frost from Lydney who passed her practical driving test with JSF Driving School on 1st June, 2017 at Gloucester test centre. See you on the road!

Dylan Humphrey

"I put most of my first time pass success down to how comfortable I felt with Jim who greets my every Friday for my regular lesson with a bounty of puns and bad jokes! Jim is one of the friendliest people I've had the joy of meeting, and I'm sure I wouldn't have done so well with another driving school. I will always recommend JSF Driving School to learner drivers before warning them of all the taxiing favours they'll have to repay family and friends once they've passed!" Brilliant first time pass for Dylan Humphrey from Parkend who passed on 31st May, 2017 at Gloucester Test Centre. The second pass for instructor Jim with the Humphrey family... looking forward to the next one!

Alexandra-Rae Middleton

"I felt extremely happy learning to drive with Jim. He ensures that you feel happy and confident with driving, particularly manoeuvres that you are unsure off. Learning in my own car also meant I was reassured about where everything was on the day of the test! I would recommend Jim as an instructor to anyone who may panic or need a bit more patience than usual. Thank you Jim." Congratulation to Alexandra-Rae Middleton from Lydney who earned a first time pass at Gloucester Test Centre on St. Patrick's Day, 17th March, 2017 after completing an Intensive Course in her own automatic car.

Luke Temple

"JSF Pete is a great instructor who has a really good personal connection with his learners, He knows you on an individual level & is always patient, even when he has to repeat himself. He has given me the confidence to believe in my driving abilities. Without him I would not have this confidence. He even helped me with my theory test which I am grateful for. His routines and acronyms ensure you remember your skills long term. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for me." A first time pass on the last day of 2016 for Luke Temple from Tuffley at Gloucester test centre. Great result! Wishing you a fantastic 2017, from all the JSF team!

"JSF Pete was very helpful , explaining things extremely well. Gave me as much practice as I needed to become confident in all aspects of driving.

The best Christmas present I could have asked for, thank you so much!" Celebrating a festive first time pass on 23rd December, 2016 for Adam Harvey from Cheltenham, at Cheltenham Test Centre. Here's to a great 2017!
