“The best school with the best instructor in town!”

Written on: 07/12/2016 by YasminHampton (1 review written)

I used BSM for the fact that he was recommended to me by a member of the family. My instructor was very patient and very keen on making sure that you understand what you are doing not just by the practical side of it but also in theory. He was never rude in any case. He indeed respected his students. He then gives you encouragement when you feel like you are not that confident enough to take your exam. He never let his students down. My instructor is definitely a person I would recommend my… Read Full Review

“Great customer service, good instructors”

Written on: 05/12/2016 by kdKirk407 (1 review written)

Like with every driving company, you have to find the right instructor. The one I had in Sheffield was a bit rough, but he made me pass with only 1 minor fault. He would never waste my time, he was always extremely punctual (more than me), and he did not keep me in the quite areas for more than a lesson. He was always straight to the point. I did have a few lessons with an instructor from BSM in a different city and he was always late. He was 15 minutes late to my first lesson with him. Not a… Read Full Review

“My second instructor was amazing ☺️”

Written on: 05/12/2016 by Khloe372 (1 review written)

I started my driving lessons with BSM back in march 2015 but after having 12 lessons I decided to stop as I was really rubbish. I didn't feel too confident. I stopped and I was like oh driving is not for me, maybe I'm not born to drive. My sister was also with BSM and she passed with her first instructor. She always talked about how much she enjoyed her lessons and recommended her instructor. So I phoned up BSM and changed my instructor to my sister's instructor. I started my lessons with my… Read Full Review

“Overpriced, offensive and unreliable instrutors”

Written on: 02/12/2016

Had a terrible experience with 2 of my instructors, although the 3rd one was notably better than the first two. Instructor 1 was constantly on his mobile phone, scary enough for any new driver, but I was also pregnant and therefore could not be too careful. I reported this to BSM and believe he was reprimanded accordingly, although no one ever followed up with me. I had one more lesson with instructor 1 before changing - and in this lesson, instead of being on his phone, he proceeded to stare… Read Full Review

“Worked a miracle”

Written on: 02/12/2016 by Amari263 (1 review written)

I had a previous driving instructor from another driving school, then had a gap of about a year before I came to BSM around May 2016. My driving instructor, his knowledge, approach, instruction, professionalism and inexhaustible patience literally made him a miracle worker on me! I will miss him and BSM's really user-friendly system and resources, but have already booked my Pass Plus lessons and would gladly go back for refreshers anytime!… Read Full Review

“Really great experience”

Written on: 02/12/2016 by TGILLEN (1 review written)

I hadn't ever had a driving lesson before starting in June of this year. I have put it off for 12 years being too scared and lacking confidence. I passed, first time. My instructor was fantastic, very supportive and always willing to explain things in more than one way if I didn't get it first time. There were times when we needed to be flexible- to fit in others tests of holidays and this was never any hassle. To start with I didn't like the idea of driving- it kept me up at night. By the time… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Support and Instruction”

Written on: 05/11/2016

My instructor was brilliant right from the start; I didn't know anything about cars and how they run, but under the BSM wing, I was able to start learning to drive with confidence, and even if I did make a small mistake, it was worked through. Would highly recommend them. Very supportive instructor… Read Full Review

“Amazing experience ”

Written on: 07/10/2016 by ccHewitt295 (1 review written)

I decided to learn how to drive again after 8 years. My driving instructor was amazing and I felt really confident with driving and he had loads of knowledge and skills. When it came to the day of my test he was really positive and spoke me through what would happen before, during and after my test which was a great help and me less nervous. Would highly recommend BSM to other people wanting to learn how to drive… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2016 by Yaira484 (1 review written)

BSM were excellent. I was really happy with my instructor and the level of information and experience he shared with me. I did take my time whilst learning to drive, but it was an overall pleasant experience with a driving school I found to be very professional and efficient. I never had any issues, and was always taught the best and came out feeling very happy after passing my practical test first time. The service was wonderful, and I never felt uncomfortable. I liked how my lessons were… Read Full Review

Job Done than expected with only few lessons. The instructor was very tough and straight to the point. She was a person who knew what she was doing. she spotted a test route and took me there several times. I've made it and thanks to her.
