The best people to listen to are my customers. Here are some comments from JRS’s pupils past and present.

Jim taught me to drive, however he didn’t teach me to pass my test. Instead I was taught to drive for life, the skills I was taught I still put into practice now. A fantastic instructor with a passion for road safety and teaching. Jaymes Crowther, Wombourne


James is a great driving instructor, his teaching style is adaptable to meet the needs of his individual students. In my first few lessons I felt as though I had made lots of progress and my confidence improved. I believe this is down to his vast knowledge on the subject of driving. His manner leads you to feel comfortable and so to ask questions when needed, not feeling intimidated. Another positive is that James doesn’t teach to test but instead teaches you for life taking you off test route roads so you can gain experience. With continuous detailed feedback and checking of understanding, he makes you feel confident when taking both theory and practical tests. I would highly recommend JRS Driving School.

Excellent experience with JRS I had about 50+ lessons and passed my theory and driving tests first time! within 6 months back in 2012. Great instructor highly recommended A***


Daniel James, Lower Gornal

Jim is friendly, efficient and teaches you every aspect of driving and makes you feel at ease with his clearly explained instructions. He always makes the most of the lessons by making sure time is filled effectively. He always has time for his pupils and goes out of his way to answer any queries and questions which you may have. An excellent instructor and is highly recommended to all.

Dr James Whalen was integral in delivering Coach Approach to around 200 driving instructors around the country. Jim has a fantastic breadth of knowledge and with a PhD in cognitive psychology and driver behaviour has been a welcome addition to the DIA training team.

I found Jim to be a fantastic driving instructor. He’s very friendly, patient and informative which helped me to feel very at ease whilst learning to drive. I have and would continue to recommend Jim to anyone.

Ryan Bailey, Kingswinford

James was an excellent instructor for me. Not only is he exceptionally knowledgeable in driving, he is also a very polite and patient person.


Josh Brown, Wolverhampton

I had struggled for many years, with lots of different companies trying to learn how to drive. Jim finally gave me the knowledge, and the confidence to finally pass my test, and first time too! Thanks Jim!



Charlotte Medlicotte, Quarry Bank

James was a fantastic driving instructor, who had very good patience and a calm manner with me when teaching me the skills required to drive. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons weekly with James and would look forward to learning the new skills to advance my driving. I would thoroughly recommend learning to drive with James, he made me feel at ease during my lessons and evine when I made silly mistakes would still stay patient with me. I passed first time with two minors. I am so pleased I had James to teach me such an incredible skill, that I now use every single day. Thanks again James!



Megan Homer, Stourbridge

Jim was a great instructor, only had 13 lessons and passed with just 2 minors, so he’s a very effective teacher and is always very honest and helpful, would recommend him to anyone. Jack Brookes, Wolverhampton

Jim taught me to drive , after two other instructors had put me off for life, and he worked around me completely, picking me up from different locations and dropping me off in different. Like others have said he doesn’t teach to pass the test but hones his students with skills to carry forward, and I progressed very quickly from Jim’s car to a huge 7 seater following passing my test. Adele Horton, Wolverhampton

Jim is by far the most patient, kind and considerate instructor I have ever had. He goes above and beyond to help his pupils learn and if he can’t help you initially he will make sure he finds a way to do so. Highly recommended! Laheela Malvankar, Great Barr
