John Hayes

“I became an ADI in 2012 and in 5 years I have in excess of 250 test passes.”

One of my first passes was my eldest son. Also my daughter passed first time with me in 2016. I now need to convince my youngest son that I am not the local taxi driver and he should start lessons sooner rather than later.

I moved to the island 6 years ago from Essex and settled in Sandown where I also volunteer as lifeboat crew for Sandown and Shanklin Independent Lifeboat.

My pupils will tell you I’m a very calm and friendly instructor who tailors each driving lesson to the pupils needs. I’m very flexible with my working hours and also work weekends and evenings. In the summer I often take pupils who are capable on a late night drive around the island so normally returning home about 11.30pm.
