“Great learning experience”

Written on: 18/12/2014 by DavidJ4675 (1 review written)

When I looked on the BSM website back in July they arranged for me an excellent driving instructor who helped me through the ups and downs of learning to drive. I went from beginner to a very good driver within four months and was unlucky not to pass first time. He was assuring and told me how I could improve and become even better. My instructor was always on time and the lessons ran smoothly. Everything was covered including all of the test manoeuvres and necessary driving skills needed to… Read Full Review

“Passed”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by M471A (1 review written)

Thanks to bsm in Manchester I passed today. The man was my 4th driving instructor and may I say the best, he spotted right away what had been going wrong and corrected it in my first lesson with him, and I passed first time with him, although it was my 5th go at my test it was my first with him, I'd previously been with red driving school an kept failing, so I'm so happy I changed schools and that I got the new man. He is very friendly and made me feel very relaxed, I would recommend him to… Read Full Review

“Adnan Master Instructor”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by steady_301 (1 review written)

Adnan is a fully confident and expert driving instructor, who was able to take me from being shaky and nervous to being confident in my abilities. He always had time to take me out driving and if he didn't have time, he made the time. He was more than happy to allow me to take my time. At one point he sat in the car and allowed me to attempt to parallel park 4-5 times before I felt confident that I could perform the manoeuvre. I would recommend Adnan to anyone who was considering learning… Read Full Review

“Full of confidence”

Written on: 15/12/2014 by herrhuld (1 review written)

Adnan kept me at the right point between relaxed enough to drive confidently and alert enough to drive safely. I'd recommend Adnan and his great temperament to anyone. I did refresher lessons and we went on a few long journeys over two hours - heading on a road trip and back really helped me get my wings… Read Full Review

“Saf Sadiq Legend”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by JosieMcDaniel98 (1 review written)

Before I started my lessons I was very apprehensive, so to find my instructor was a down to earth, non stuffy, easy going, patient tutor was extremely assuring. The lessons were informative and well planned, with extra time spent on my weak points. I recommend b.s.m. and especially Saf Sadiq of the Stockport area… Read Full Review

“Excellent work, I Passed at 1st attempt! Thanks Adnan.”

Written on: 10/12/2014 by Olay (1 review written)

I started lessons with Adnan for months back and all through he was fantastic!. We had loads of arguments as he tries to coach me rightly but in the end it is a pass. I am really grateful to him for the detailed lessons we had and his time. I would, therefore, recommend Adnan to anyone looking to start a driving lesson. He is very patient and he will listen to you and give you ample of time to learn. Once again thank you Adnan!… Read Full Review

“Adnan the best”

Written on: 04/12/2014 by 2Lockhart (1 review written)

I was doing lessons with a private instructor for a five months and felt that i was'n't doing so great at all. I was then recommended Adnan from Bsm from a couple of friends and family and decided to take lessons with him. I can honestly say it was the best decison as he was very supportive and always boosted my confidence. He was always suiting to my availabilty and was always on time for lessons. Within a short period of time he gave me the skills i hadn't learnt from my previous instructor… Read Full Review

“Get some respect!”

Written on: 28/11/2014 by Ashbysg181 (1 review written)

Lets say do not go with bsm! I don't know if all the intructors are like, i might just had a prixk of an instrucor. Anyway so i had 2 hours for £25 which was a deal. Intill i had my first lesson. Never went back since. I was very excited to start my first lesson. He drove me half hour away which was no need as my area i live in is very quite anyway. after half hour of driving somewhere, he talked things through like what things are and all that jazz. So i had about 20 minutes left of my lesson… Read Full Review

“Confidence knocking.”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by ScottEagleton (1 review written)

I was told BSM was great, that they are very professional, this may be true but my experience so far with them is terrible, my instructor is a arrogant selfish so and so. he seems to take personal pleasure in making you feel small and stupid, he also seems to enjoy it when he is right and you are wrong. he says "he may not be nice but he gets results" surely he can be nice and also get results? I had already had 10 lessons in which I had done roundabouts, drove on the A1, junctions etc.. yet my… Read Full Review

“Really shocking how their standards have fallen”

Written on: 22/11/2014 by Blazel295 (1 review written)

I took lessons with BSM knowing they passed several family members decades ago, and then they were second to none. I went with this experience and how shocked I was. I got an instructor called peter in Manchester. He seemed good and his teaching was good and the first lesson was brilliant. I was so happy. He was late for the first lesson, but overran so was ok. He also went for a toilet break but we are all human and obviously ok. Then the second lesson he came late again, but again I thought… Read Full Review

“Unhappy Student”

Written on: 16/11/2014 by KassidyOlson215 (1 review written)

I had 12hours of driving and to be honest didn't really learn much. The instructor was always saying things that knocked my confidence down. I was only allowed in 1st gear and 2nd gear once. I was learning but the fact that I was doing the same gear every week was just not worth me carrying on with the lessons. Told the driver I was not interested in driving lessons anymore. I am going with someone else. I would not recommend BSM to anyone… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience with a great instructor”

Written on: 02/11/2014 by AmyW1 (1 review written)

I started learning to drive with bsm & adnan in June & passed in October after 15 2hr lessons. Adnan was a really great instructor, really patient and calm and always took the time to explain everything and made sure I understood before we moved on. Adnan uses an iPad to help explain different junctions and scenarios and it was so helpful to see these on a screen instead of just trying to picture them and what I'd need to do in my head! He was great at picking out what areas he felt I needed to… Read Full Review

“Very Pleased!”

Written on: 23/10/2014 by Harper1978 (1 review written)

I turned to BSM after spending about 18 months persevering with another driving school and not getting anywhere and really wish I'd switched sooner. Adnan was endlessly patient with me, and made sure he explained everything so that I understood it. Without him I probably still wouldn't have any confidence with my manoeuvres and would still have the L plates! Excellent value for money. - Mrs Chant… Read Full Review

“Total racket”

Written on: 13/10/2014 by Elliottfc406 (1 review written)

Had an absolutely terrible experience with BSM. My previous instructor had been unable to carry on with taking me through to my test (after 5 months driving experience) due to some personal circumstances of his own. I began searching around for a company to just take me through a few more lessons and my test. Decided to try out BSM. On the first (and only) lesson, the instructor spoke broken English, despite the company assuring me that their instructors had to meet a minimum requirement in the… Read Full Review
