Jon Chipps (covering Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Maidstone and all surrounding areas)
Jon joined BSM as a trainee driving instructor in January 2011 and fully qualified later that year. In that short period he has attained to date a 79% first time pass rate, (46/58 passes) together with an average for all tests passed of 4.1 driver faults and recently a zero fault test pass. Jon has worked within the transport /manufacturing industry for 25 years and has strong links with motorsport including F1 and has held a racing licence together with current HGV "class one licence". Jon has trained as a 4x4 instructor and has lead overland expeditions including leading a winter off road crossing of the Pyrenees.
His lessons are conducted in a very relaxed and calm atmosphere, to get the best out of all pupils. " I am a great believer in teaching people to drive and not just passing the test, passing the test is something that happens on that journey".
What Jon's pupils are saying
"He was very patient, even when I was tired and unreasonable and always maintained calm at all times. It is thanks to his logical approach that there were no nasty surprises on the test and I passed first time. "
