    Jan's a wonderful teacher, so patient and reliable. I felt comfortable driving with Jan and passed the driving test on the first go with much thanks to her. Jan was also brilliant in setting me up for driving after the test. Highly recommended!

    Having not driven for over 20 years, Jan gave me the confidence to get back on the road again . Much appreciated. Much easier than coping with public transport, especially on the Northern Beaches. Thanks Jan.

    Got my Ps first go thanks to Jan. She was very friendly and helpful, and was able to teach me the routes and give me very helpful tips for the test. She also made sure that I'd be a safe and responsible driver after the test as well.

    Thanks to Jan I passed first go. I had done the majority of my hours by the time I saw Jan and she was great at tweaking my driving. There were so many little things that I wasnt aware of that could have meant a fail.

    Great teacher! Very patient and has great knowledge. Would reccommend her to anyone that wants to pass first go!

    Jan was an amazing driving instructor. She taught my brother and a few other friends, all who have passed first time. She helped me get my p's too which I got 100% first go all thanks to her! I definitely recommend her to anyone on their L's going for their P's as she was easy to understand and extremely knowledgeable and will teach you how to be a safe driver.

    I was recommended Newport Driving School by my best friend, and I am so happy she told me about Jan and her amazing skill and knowledge in building confident and safe drivers. Jan was an incredabily helpful instructor for my early days of driving, to the very last hour before I went for my provisional lisence (which I actually went for, and passed today - first go!!) Jan was able to target my weaknesses which ultimately helped me improve into a better, stronger driver - I would give Jan a lot of credit for my pass, as I believe I wouldn't of been able to pass without her guidance!! Overall I would highly highly recommend Jan for any teenager learning how to drive!! Thank you thank you thank you so much Jan for your amazing teaching skills!! EVERYONE ring up Jan to make an appointment today!!

    I was an incredibly nervous driver, who was on her Ls for the second time around, Jan helped me get my Ps but more importantly she helped me to become a confident,safe and capable driver, a skill that will last long after the test.

    She is patient and calm even when things get a little sketchy, she is knowledgeable and explains things in a way that is easy to understand and apply to other situations.

    I have had other driving instructors and left lessons feeling worse than I started, Jan just has a way of making you feel better about your driving. I would recommend her to anyone and am thankful I found her.

    Jan is a sweet woman who has a good sense of humor. She taught me how to be a safe driver. She helped me gain confidence on the road. I got a very high score on my driving test 104/109. The driving examiner was impressed with my driving as well. I give alot of credit to Jan. If anyone is looking for the best driving instructor Jan is the best you can find around northern beaches :)

    Jan is the most fabulous, professional driving instructor you could ever hope to find. She came to us highly recommended by many local families and taught both of our children to drive and pass their tests easily. Jan's knowledge, thoroughness of training and very high reputation gives learners the best possible chance of achieving success and lifelong safe driving skills. We will, and do, recommend Jan unreservedly, to everyone we know. She is simply amazing.

    Jan is a very knowledgeable and patient driving instructor and always greats you with a smile! Driving with Jan not only taught me the necessary skills to help me pass my P's test first go, but also the skills that will help me to be a better driver in the future. I'd definitely recommend Jan to anyone wanting the best possible driving lesson experience!

    Jan was absolutely incredible in teaching me how to drive and helping me get my p's on the first try. She was patient, very friendly, professional and encouraging and i could not have passed without her guidance. You feel at ease when driving with her and strive to drive better. I would recommend her (and have) without a doubt.

  • David S. Newbie   1 review
    Jan came highly recommended by friends who had used Newport Driving School to teach their children. We could not have been happier with the driving lessons Jan provided to our daughter. She not only taught safe and low-risk driving but prepared my daughter well for the test. Her manner was calm and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to learn to drive.

    Jan is the best driving teacher around! She taught my sister and I to be safe drivers and everything we needed to know for our P's test. Jan is always friendly and I always recommend her to anyone who needs a driving teacher :)

    Jan is an awesome instructor. She helped me pass my test first go. She was able to target areas in my driving which needed improvement and help me improve on these problems. She not only teaches you how to pass the test, but also teaches you to be a safe driver. I would recommend Jane to everyone.

    I'd highly recommend Jan to anyone and everyone to learn to drive. She is a fantastic teacher that is calm and thorough. With her help I was able to pass my P's first attempt. Everyone book in with Jan for an appointment now! You won't be dissapointed!
  • Elaine Gillespie Newbie   1 review
    I would totally recommend Jan to any person who is learning to drive, from 16 to 99 years. Jan taught myself how to drive and I have recommend her to friends/ family/clients and have never had a bad report, everyone feels so comfortable and at ease/ In control! She is such a fantastic teacher! RING her now for an appointment.
  • grantcat Newbie   1 review
    I would highly recommend Jan as a driving instructor for anyone with a Learner Driver. Both my sons had manual driving lessons in our car with Jan and both were better drivers after her tuition. Jan is very professional and related so well to both my boys and was particularly good for my second son who was extremely anxious about doing the test. However, with her knowledge and reassurance he passed first time. Thank you so much Jan!
  • Alexandra I Newbie   1 review
    I absolutely agree with the people who have already said that Jan is a professional and thorough teacher. I hated driving and I was afraid to drive and it took me a long time to learn. I had a dozen different driving instructors at different stages and there was nobody as good as Jan. I loved her being calm and extremely patient no matter what I was doing wrong. I believe that teaching me to drive could be quite a frustrating experience sometimes. Anyhow eventually thanks to Jan I became a confident driver and today I passed my driving test on my first attempt. To everything that has been said about NDS features before I want to add that Jan's being immaculately dressed every time we had a lesson makes her stand out from the rest of the driving instructors I have had.

    Jan is a wonderful driving instructor & a lovely lady. My two children really enjoyed having lessons with her & she helped them both pass first time.
  • TammySayer Newbie   1 review
    Jan was just fantastic in teaching my two teenage boys how to drive. Jan is an absolute professional, reliable and very thorough. Both boys passed their driving test first time and both on a manual vehicle. Jan was highly recommended to us several years ago and I have absolutely no hesitation in further endorsing this very fine lady as your child's Learn to Drive instructor.

    Jan was very professional. My daughter had her two lessons before her final 'P' test, in which Jan made sure everything was checked and up to scratch. She pass on her first attempt with flying colours. Thank you Jan I will definitely recommend you!

    Jan has now helped two of my daughters pass their test first time. There were remarkable improvements from the first lesson and she helped my daughters gain confidence in a short space of time. I absolutely recommend Jan to any learner driver!
