About Jo

I have held my full driving licence since 1994 and I am a fully qualified approved driving instructor (ADI grade 5), offering driving lessons in the Ramsgate, Margate, Broadstairs and Thanet area. I was born in Margate and have always lived and worked in Thanet giving me an excellent knowledge of the local area.

I am also an IAM Advanced Driver, as well as a member of the Canterbury and District Driving Instructor Association (C & D DIA) and Smart Driving.

If you're a nervous learner, I am an ideal instructor as I pride myself in being efficient, patient and courteous with excellent people skills.

Code of Practice

We take our standards of customer service very seriously, so on your lessons you'll be given our undivided attention, just you and the instructor. We won't use your lesson time to drop other students off, or interrupt your lesson to answer the phone. We'll also pick you up and drop you off from home, work, school or college.

All lessons will last a minimum of one hour, with longer lessons available. Research has shown that two hours of tuition per week is the optimum amount for a first-time pass.

The Pass Lane instructors will behave in a professional manner at all times, and will try to avoid physical contact with a student except in an emergency or in the normal course of greeting.

We will advise you on when to apply for your theory and practical driving tests, taking current waiting times into consideration. We will ensure that you have all the right materials, preparation and paperwork for these tests.

Any monies paid in advance for lessons or test fees will be safeguarded and accounted for. If a lesson needs to be cancelled, we will aim to give you at least 24 hours notice. We reserve the right to refuse tuition but will not act in any way which contravenes legislation on discrimination.

In addition to the above, The Pass Lane Driving School is committed to providing instruction complying with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) code of practice, and to the DSA's recommended syllabus.

The Car

You will learn to drive in our easy to handle 63-plate manual-geared Toyota Aygo 'Move', complete with HE-MAN dual controls, air conditioning, dual airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes, and a 4-star safety rating.
