Thanks

“Great experience ”

Written on: 19/06/2017 by Mark34ec (1 review written)

I started my driving lessons, in Swansea, in mid-February. My instructor, was extremely patient, professional and covered everything I needed to know. As a new instructor, she showed no signs of uncertainty and was clear and concise in the information given to me. Beyond her professionalism, she is just a lovely person. This helped me be myself, for us to have a laugh and certainly helped me achieve my goal quickly. I passed my practical test, on 16 June 2017, and had no faults relating to… Read Full Review

“Very good instructing”

Written on: 18/06/2017 by AcidDrippa (1 review written)

I recently passed my driving test. I took up AA driving school upon recommendations from a friend of mine who had a great experience. My instructor was very good and he made sure that I had all the manouvers right to the dot. He also had some great advices to give that has proven helpful during driving. He made sure to go back and iron out my weak points in driving. On the whole I am completely satisfied with the teaching that AA has provided… Read Full Review

“My instructor was amazing”

Written on: 17/06/2017 by Underwoodoa312 (1 review written)

My experience with the AA is nothing but positive. The service and communications and support is great. This was my second time round trying to learn to drive after failing a few years prior and my instructor was excellent. I was always able to find lessons in times that suited me (weekends and evenings). My instructor was extremely patient, positive and i passed my first test while under his instruction. He helped me increase my confidence in driving and i am extremely happy with the service… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience ”

Written on: 17/06/2017 by ogKendall241 (1 review written)

My instructor was amazing! She understood how to get the best out of me to get me to a test standard in a very short space of time. She was knowledgeable and knew how to brake the information down into ways so I would be able to remember it. I would defiantly recommend family and friends to book lessons with her as she is a great instructor… Read Full Review

“Roy was amazing! ”

Written on: 12/06/2017 by Bethholland (1 review written)

Practised in Sheffield with my driving instructor. It took me over a year and a half due to unexpected circumstances. He was calm and reassuring through out. He made my confidence build every lesson (even when I have an off day). He's a fantastic Driving instructor and I will be recommending him to my family and friends! Thankyou to him!! … Read Full Review

“Highly recommend - fantastic instructor ”

Written on: 12/06/2017 by Colettelea (1 review written)

I learnt to drive in North Wales and had my test in ellesemere port on 6/6/2017. I could not fault my instructor - he was very patient and encouraging. Never told me I was doing something wrong but would tell me how to improve in a positive way. I had never drove prior to starting and was so nervous but he really put me at ease and after 20 lessons or so I passed my tes first time! Thanks AA for providing amazing instructors!… Read Full Review

“Amazing!”

Written on: 12/06/2017 by RhysCarrey1 (1 review written)

My driving instructor was from Dunstable, I honestly can't praise him enough. He made me feel so confident even when I was on the brink of just giving up after failing twice. He managed to fit me in some lessons in a short amount of time and doing 2 hour lessons from 6 o'clock meaning he had a late night so for that he was awesome. I would honestly recommend AA to any of my friends as they are reasonably priced and so reliable… Read Full Review

“Top notch instructor ”

Written on: 08/06/2017 by JennaGomez301 (1 review written)

I can't recommend AA enough. Reasonably priced, nice modern car and an excellent instructor. I only realise how good he was because I was previously with another school and the instructor was terrible. The instructor was friendly, calm, professional and flexible in terms of cancellations. 10/10. Oh and I passed first time… Read Full Review

“My Instrcutor was amazing!”

Written on: 07/06/2017 by KatelynnPittman (1 review written)

I had a proper good experienced Instrcutor, I felt clam just by his ways of telling saying how and what I should look out for and most of things, after many years of driving in countries also great cities and now the UK. So with a proper Instrcutor explaining what I needed to change in my driving which completely structured my driving and am so grateful to him. A super super Instrcutor with super attitude and if all Instrcutor can be like him all is well I'll say… Read Full Review

“My instructor was the best :-) Automatic car ”

Written on: 05/06/2017 by Vuma (1 review written)

After changing instruction 6 times, no I am not joking it was 6 times, I finally decided to go for AA which I previously though was expensive since it was the number 1 school. But after doing some research I realize that it actually wasn't expensive it has the average cost for any other school and in fact can be cheaper that many other schools. My instructor managed to help me with my previous driving lessons trauma, I never thought I could ever be confident with speed but he did that miracle… Read Full Review

“Overall excellent experience ”

Written on: 05/06/2017 by JovanniKirk (1 review written)

My AA instructor was outstanding: he was always patient, calm and professional. He had methods to tackle manoeuvres that were easy to remember and actually worked, and made sure that certain elements, such as safety checks, became well-imbedded habits. I really liked his relaxed, but focused attitude and that as I improved and learned, he would pick me up on small errors. I learned in a brand new Ford Fiesta and the Show Me, Tell Me sheet I was given was produced by The AA for this specific… Read Full Review

“Fantastic ”

Written on: 05/06/2017 by Toastandcereal (1 review written)

My instructor was really knowledgeable and always gave me the full agreed time for lessons. If I'd driven back more quickly than expected she wouldn't end the lesson early but spent time doing manoeuvres. Had 6 x2 hour lessons with the person I dealt with and then an hour before my test and I passed first time with zero faults… Read Full Review

Having only driven my partners cars around private car parks/estates. I decided it was time to get my own licence and my own car. I used the same instructor as my partner and she was fantastic.

“Bad customer service from instructor and AA”

Written on: 03/06/2017 by SidneyO'Grady (1 review written)

I was disappointed with my experience with the AA. I had an instructor in London who lacked basic customer service. I was not new to driving and have had many lessons in the past and had even been for a few tests. He wanted to start me from scratch and did not even want to cover the entire test area. He was very rude to me and also my father. He was just interested in the money. One lesson, we spent 40 minutes just talking with no driving. This was because he wanted to talk about my payments to… Read Full Review

“Quality and Professional service”

Written on: 02/06/2017 by JG88 (1 review written)

I passed!!! And this is all due to Mr Madir (instructor) who taught me all the relevant and practicality about driving in just 4 weeks (total lessons 10). I've tried many independent instructor and was often left disappointed and broke!!! With no result. So I took good advice and tried AA. Happy with service from start to end… Read Full Review
