“Zero commitment to pupils, 100% commitment to profit! ”

Written on: 13/08/2015

Learning with BSM was a pleasure when I had a consistent teacher. This consistency lasted for 4lessons. Nowadays when I try to book a lesson, drivers are fully booked and too busy for new students. I was told an instructor would be available for 6 weeks including weekends! I happily paid for lessons in advance. This turned out to be a complete lie! And now I'm hundreds of pounds short with few productive lessons to show for it. This is my first experience of a large driving school and it will… Read Full Review

“Fun instructor, passed test second time ! ”

Written on: 08/08/2015

My BSM instructor was lovely. A nice gent. He was patient with me and I felt like I could make a mistake without him scolding me. I can get quite flustered at times but he helped me keep calm in the car. The only point I would make that could be deemed as negative, was he was too helpful. What I mean by this is that I failed my first test on my reverse manoeuvre. This was, I feel, because if the reversing started to go a bit 'off' on my lesson, ie into the kerb on a reverse round the corner… Read Full Review

“Simplicity is perfection”

Written on: 06/08/2015 by MarkoM (1 review written)

If you wish to pass your practical driving test as quickly as possible and simply need a set of instructions how to do so, this is the right choice for you. I believe the examiners are also very well aware of the quality and the tradition of this driving school, so it also makes it easier for them to make the right choice about passing you on that test. Because if the instructor feels that you're ready, then the examiner most likely share that opinion :) -Passed my driving test on my 1st… Read Full Review

“Excellent Driving School”

Written on: 05/08/2015 by snkenterteymentpl (1 review written)

I have to say i spent quite some time looking for a school. I researched a lot of them and i went for BSM because of my friend who was already driving with them at the time. I really liked my instructor as he didnt go for the money so it was quality over quantity. It might be different with other instructors but I have to say that Syed who was my instructor was a very good and experienced instructor. He never raised his voice at me even when i made a mistake and passing with one minor shows he… Read Full Review

“THE MOST PROFESSIONAL FRIENDLY INSTRUCTOR EVER!!”

Written on: 29/06/2015 by Fnasir7 (1 review written)

I came to bsm after a very sad sorrow journey of trying to find a reliable professional instructor in the private sector. I decided to learning driving with a coporate company instead of wasting my time and money with private instructors (something i did many many times) when i first joined bsm i was assigned a different instructor, sadly after a while things were not working out, then bsm arranged me to have lessons with another instructor. He rang me straight away on the day and introduced… Read Full Review

“NO VALUE FOR MONEY!”

Written on: 18/06/2015 by 85Padilla (1 review written)

I AM NOT RECOMMENDING BSM. It's either he is late or undertime. I did not get my value for money. I am not very pleased most of the time we were stoppingg on the side of the road and he is talking the same thing over and over. I don't know if he just want to save some petrol or what. Disappointing! Money grabber!… Read Full Review

“AMAZING”

Written on: 16/06/2015 by EMMATREGURTHA (1 review written)

I don't even know where to start with Darz Adnan from BSM, he's based in Bolton, Bury and Manchester... I started my lessons with him in March 2015. And today I passed first attempt! Within 3 months! Which is incredible. I'd had no other lessons and no help from family. He made me feel at ease every lesson. And was so patient with all my mistakes. We had a good laugh in my lessons too! I'd definitely 1million percent recommend him to anyone! Patient, funny and incredibly amazing driving… Read Full Review

“Self absorbed instructors ”

Written on: 15/06/2015 by Ishaan53 (1 review written)

I recently had lessons in Aberdeen after moving from a small town where I had previously learnt to drive. As I already had a driving instructor at home I had high expectations for my new one in Aberdeen and was surprised greatly at the lack of knowledge and care he had for me. He never wrote anything down that I had done wrong or well in order to carry on to next lessons and quite often mixed me up with others. I was constantly repeating myself even though I had perfected manoeuvres etc. so… Read Full Review

“Poor instructors of Automatic Driving in Newcastle...”

Written on: 12/06/2015 by 48Coleman (1 review written)

If you are still thinking which driving school to learn driving, please do not consider BSM. It is a waste of money. The two automatic driving instructor in Newcastle are so poor that it is a nightmare! I have learnt more than 100 hours in BSM. For the first instructor, it took me about 80 hours and the second one took me 30 hours. I know I am not talented in driving. Therefore, I kept on paying money to learn. I had not have a lot of knowledge about the road before I learnt driving because I… Read Full Review

“Best instructor ever!”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by BeccaHill (1 review written)

Those who can teach and my driving instructor did this with style! When I first started having driving lessons with BSM I was extremely nervous, but I needn't have been, as my driving instructor soon put me at ease. I finally found someone who made driving enjoyable and taught me not just how to drive safely, but how to have fun at the same time - something which I had never managed to achieve before! My instructor also taught me the theory behind why I should drive in a certain way, so that I… Read Full Review

“Highly recommend BSM!!!”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by FrancisPorter (1 review written)

From starting with one driving instructor I soon switched to BSM, my new instructor was a lot more friendly and helpful, he encouraged me every driving lesson with what I'd learnt and I was soon improving and much more confident on the road. The prices are fairly reasonable. I love all the information they give to help such as tracking books, show-me tell-me questions, and mock driving tests; it truly shows what stage your at and how much you've improved since day one. I've recommend my driving… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2015 by Francesca_j97 (1 review written)

I had been with a private instructor at £25/hour from August and had still yet to do emergency stop, bay park and parralel park in March! He had taken cash when we first signed up with him and was initially really keen,but was rapidly losing interest - chatting on the phone, texting his kids and always being late by 15 minutes and dropping me off 10 minutes early. I started to really hate driving, and eventually cancelled a test knowing I wasn't ready and thought about stopping all… Read Full Review

“Take This Review Into Account”

Written on: 28/05/2015 by Ryan2197 (1 review written)

I had a private instructor from September. January came and he told me to put in for my test for April. I followed his judgement however we didn't learn Bay Parking, Emergency Stop, etc. 2 weeks before my test I called BSM and luckily they could fit me in with a instructor called Pam Sangra (highly recommended: friendly, pleasant and honest) who took me on a 2 hour lesson and said I was up to my standard to take my test. The day before my test my instructor called and I said I cancelled my… Read Full Review
