Jason is an amazing instructor

Forty-one and started from scratch. Within 2 months he got me through with confidence. Instructed me in my own car and very helpful. Thanks Jas.


I would highly recommend

Jason is an amazing driving instructor and prepared me very well for my driving test. He’s extremely patient and helped me gradually build my confidence on the road. Overall, a great guy to be around and can't recommend him enough!


Amazing instructor

Jason has been an amazing instructor with me over the last couple of months. He is very patient and will explain things multiple times if you don’t understand. He has a very funny personality and makes you feel at ease and doesn’t rush you. I passed my test with him first time.


Passed first time with Jason

Couldn’t recommend Jason more. Passed first time after only a few lessons. He makes you feel very calm & comfortable even when you do get overwhelmed. He explains things very clearly & gives you time to amend yourself to get it correct. I’m so surprised at how confident I’ve become driving as I was so nervous before & I completely put that down to his help. A massive thank you to Jason!


Brilliant instructor

Many thanks to Jason who helped me pass my driving test. The best instructor around. Keeps you very calm even when you do things wrong. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!


Jason is a fantastic instructor

Jason is a fantastic instructor. He massively helped me to develop my confidence as a driver and I was thrilled to be able to pass my test with no minors. He was always calm and really helped me manage my anxiety in the car. I would highly recommend him!


Just passed my test with Jason

Just passed my test with Jason. He’s been a great instructor. Very calm and understanding about mistakes. You don’t feel under pressure. It’s been a pleasure learning with him.


Amazing instructor

I can’t say enough good things about my instructor Jason at 1st Stop. He was extremely professional while making me feel so at ease the whole time. He gave me so many tips on manoeuvring and overall common mistakes to be aware of that were so helpful. I can honestly say he prepared me 100% for my exam. So grateful!


Pass plus with Jason

I did my pass plus here with Jason Sheppard and he was great. I learned a lot from the course and him. I now feel so much more confident on the roads. Would 100% recommend him.
