I wouldn't recommend using BSM. Had a lot of trouble with my first instructor, who, after 14 hours still hadn't taught me any maneuvers or wouldn't let me drive home, and this was not sue to my driving ability as my new instructor taught me two maneuvers and let me drive everywhere on my first lesson. Also took money off for cancelling a lesson even though I gave the 2 days notice they require. New instructor is fine but seems to think you need 10 hours worth of lessons in the week running up to your test which is ridiculous, I refused and he appeared confused. Still haven't passed mt test after twice failing, and my instructor seemed more bothered about his records than me passing.
Much better to go with a cheaper private company, preferable if you know someone has used them before.
