“Simply excellent”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by AdelineNelson (1 review written)

Jay is a great Instructor, always patient even though I didn't always get the move at first. Made sure all the faults were pointed out. After every lesson we would have a debrief on how to be even better next time and what to work on. Would definitely recommend him to all family and friends. … Read Full Review

“Yeah you stink but that gum is excessive.”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by packeye (1 review written)

Oh Omar.... I was given 10 hours of driving lessons for my 17th birthday and i jumped into learning straight away, well... tried. On my first lesson i had to get into a car with a repulsively obese man called Omar, and to say the least, the scent in the car was not a pleasant one. Out of 2 hours (£52) i spent about 10 minutes driving around a small carpark all because Omar found that there was more interesting things to do such as taking 5 minutes to move seats, or eating a whole pack of gum… Read Full Review

“Conned by BSM”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by ik2992 (1 review written)

Having previously been let down in a similar manner by the AA driving school, we thought of trying BSM out. BIG mistake!! Many years ago I took lessons with BSM myself and was under the impression they still ran a professional service ______ they do not!! We wanted some lessons for my wife and hence rang them up 8-10 days ago. I explained to the guy on the phone that we'd been previously let down because of the terrible time keeping and lack of commitment shown by the "cowboys" at the "other"… Read Full Review

“Changed my life”

Written on: 17/06/2014 by 439Meadows (1 review written)

Had trouble with previous driving school, but on first try out with RAC driver instruction, mu confidence was boosted and no longer felt a failure. I actually had great fun learning and was quite sad not to do the lessons any more. But hopefully will do a motorway lesson to get the confidence of faster driving. Driving my little car to work, go shopping when l want to rather then waiting for hubby to take me, has changed my life completely. Should have gone to you years ago… Read Full Review

“A good experience, great school, but a little pricey”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by Glennn457 (1 review written)

I would just like to firstly say a massive thank you to my instructor for getting me through my driving test 1st time. I had firstly tried with Pass n go and after around 14 hours still never got out of my street. On a recommendation I tried BSM. From the off I felt at ease With my instructor who rang me a few days before my first lesson with him for an informal chat which I thought was a nice touch.(with him I passed with in 3 months) As an older student (early 40's) I was worried I… Read Full Review

“Great driving experience”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by KelsieMcClellan (1 review written)

I found my instructor to be very professional, he taught me at a pace that was suitable for me, he was extremely patient and we built a good rapport. When ever I did mess up on the roads he always remained calm and told me to take my time, once I mastered the basics I liked that he listened to me when I expressed concerns about certain manoeuvres and we went over them until I got them right. He never rushed me, always told me in advance if he was running late and always gave me extra time if he… Read Full Review

“Great! If you have the right instructor!”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by Jaylay109 (1 review written)

Started off with an overbearing Eco crazed instructor who insisted if I took it over 2000 revs he would charge me for a lessons petrol! He also stopped me in the middle of the road with his pedals which caused me far more panic than help! I asked to change to another instructor and he was 1 million times better! He got me 0 minors in my test after 10 hours of lessons! Not bad right? But the first instructor was what ruined my experience. Just so glad I asked to change instructors!… Read Full Review

“Amazing experience! Thank you!!!!”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by 459Head (1 review written)

I had the best time learning to drive with my BSM instructor. We got along so well, he made me feel at ease and had the upmost confidence in me! I did take four driving tests as I just went to pieces during the practical driving test, but everytime he still had confidence in me and pushed me to carry on and take another test. When someone had confidence in you, you'll start to be confident yourself! After having a few driving instructors before him I was so happy to find someone I clicked… Read Full Review

“Expensive and not worth the money!”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by BSMsuck (1 review written)

I was given 5 hours worth of lessons as a present. The instructor did not push me to pass either my theory or my practical test, and it was much more worthwhile for me to buy learner insurance on my own car. The quality of teaching was poor and I felt as though it was completely a waste of money. I paid for two hours of lessons after the gifted ones, then decided to learn through help from my parents. I had one lesson which was two hours long with a private instructor one week before my test… Read Full Review

“I enjoyed the whole experience thank you Richard ”

Written on: 11/06/2014 by Tom123456789 (1 review written)

I never write reviews on anything but I was so impressed I have decided to share it. I was taught by an instructor in the wakefield area in an automatic. He immediately made me feel at ease and no matter how many mistakes I made he was always calm which helped me to stay calm too. His teaching methods helped me to learn fast and effectively. He was also very accomadating picking me up from different places and at different times to work around my work schedules. Really enjoyed it! Thank you!… Read Full Review

“Best driving experience! Thanks BSM and Neil!”

Written on: 11/06/2014

I chose to learn to drive with BSM as I had a limited amount of time in which I wanted to pass, and felt that using such a reputable and national company was the best way to go about this. And I was not disappointed! My driving instructor, Neil Reynolds, was always calm, patient and reassuring, especially appreciated as at times I could be rather nervous. Neil never pushed me beyond what I was comfortable with, and allowed me to do progress on my own terms, all the while encouraging me. He had… Read Full Review

“Best driving instructor in Bolton”

Written on: 08/06/2014 by Mubeenx (1 review written)

I have had the best experience learning my driving with Adnan and passed my driving the first time in a short period of time. Adnan helped both me and my elder sister to pass our driving first time! Excellent instructor would defiantly recommend if you want to pass your driving first time. Adnan was very kind and patient with me and also reasonable with the prices he offered. He also explained everything to me properly until I understood it, and also used to give me good advice in order for me… Read Full Review

“THE GOOD FATHER OF BSM BOLTON!”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by Adnan_Bolton (1 review written)

To potential learners who are looking to have a great experience of learning to drive, what can I say! Adnan has been a perfect example of a teacher. To start of with I was nervous wreck at the beginning of my lessons, and this was due to a bad BSM instructor to which I finally gave in to. For professional courtesy I will not say any name. But Adnan taught me every single point by point driving skills in order for me to drive safely on the road. He always encouraged me to push the bar so that… Read Full Review
