“Passed first time”

Written on: 16/08/2017 by vtMaynard79 (1 review written)

My driving instructor was amazing, told me I was nearly ready and to book my test as he didn't want to waste my time or money. Never wanted to take advantage of me and even suggested to only have a lesson every two weeks as I was ready for my test but I wanted to keep doing one a week and he was happy to support me. If I had something come up and had to rearrange any lessons he never charged me for it and was always happy to help. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to learn to drive… Read Full Review

“Wonderful Instructor!!”

Written on: 15/08/2017 by Meg34 (1 review written)

I first started my lessons while I was at Uni and didn't like the city centre driving so moved my pick up address to back home, the AA were really helpful and efficient whenever I needed to contact them. My second instructor was brilliant, he was friendly and always made me feel calm and confident behind the wheel. He never made me feel embarrassed for making a mistake and would calmly correct me. I wanted to pass my test before going back to uni so he booked me in for two hour lessons and… Read Full Review

“Money!”

Written on: 15/08/2017 by 1234543212345 (1 review written)

It's bad how it states that you have to cancel 48hours before your lesson if you don't want to be charged yet I cancelled 50 hours before and still got charged. I also contacted my instructor to try and arrange a lesson on multiple occasions only to be ignored or told to message later. When I finally got a lesson he insisted that I had a 2 hour lesson. 2 Hours is a Long time especially after being in college all day. After I failed my first test I started driving in my mums car with my mum… Read Full Review

Thank you for leaving your review, we're extremely sorry to read that you had difficulty changing lessons when you needed to. The first lesson is always for 2 hours, this allows our pupils to get to know the instructor and vehicle they will be learning to drive in, after this pupils do have the choice to choose to have 1 hour lessons. We hope you contacted us at the time to raise this so that we could assist.

The person I dealt with was recommended to me by 3 different friends that had all passed with him first time. He was so understanding and patient, I can't thank him enough! I never once felt nervous in the car with him and he always made me believe that I could drive even from my first lesson. Thank you so much! x… Read Full Review

I booked sadly with an instructor she is not honest and going errand during my lesson I booked 2 h lessons with and agreed to be 1 h but when I cancelled my booking in short notice she charged me for 2 h , she even sent a message which reveal her professionalism ? Made a complaint but AA not really help ! This instructor is surely the one who should be avoided in AA , even booked with AA feel no support and no rights from them , they don't but her about you they just want your money.

“Excellent”

Written on: 06/08/2017 by Kane479 (1 review written)

After 5 failed test attempts i gave up driving for about 6-7 years. I decided to give it a go once more. I chose The AA Driving School. Was the best experience i have ever had driving. My instructor was really patient and enjoyed teaching his pupils. I recently passed the driving test with only 2 minor faults! He installed so much confidence in me and my driving improved so much! Only took about 3-4 months for me to pass. Lessons were really fun. Honestly habe nothing negavive to say about the… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2017 by James69griffiths (1 review written)

I was apprehensive when starting to learn to drive, as I had had several bad experiences in the past. All my doubts began to slip away from the second I sat in the driver's seat. The instructor was knowledgeable, friendly, and set me at ease immediately. At no point over the ensuing lessons did this diminish, and by the hour I felt more confidant, and felt my skills improve. He helped me understand not just my own driving responsibilities, but also how other drivers behaved, and how to read… Read Full Review

“It's been a ride ”

Written on: 04/08/2017 by Jsk800 (1 review written)

I am writing as a student who passed first time for both the theory and practical tests. Firstly, I must begin by recommending that every student should take a few driving lessons before their theory test as I felt that this really was beneficial toward learning the theory knowledge, through physical application. In addition to this, I would not advise getting into a parents car before completing the theory test and having had at least 10 lessons. The AA provided a transparent service to help… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/08/2017 by Ezequiely1974 (1 review written)

I had nearly given up hope, after learning with 4 different instructors from various companies and independents over the course of 7months. I actually had a poor experience with my first instructor from the AA but after speaking with customer support, we were able to find another instructor in my area and he was the best by far. Cal was a great support, understood strengths and weakness and helped my develop running up to my test date. He was a true professional and didn't make me sign up for… Read Full Review
