“20hrs never turned the engine on”

Written on: 24/03/2017 by Mili_srb (1 review written)

I booked with AA last summer thinking it's the biggest best known driving school surely their instructors must be great! Well they are not! The one I had at least wasn't any good. I wasted money on 20 hours. During this time I had never turned the ignition on and never started the car also never switched it off. It was always clutch down and off you go. Not once did I use a handbrake and never used 4th gear. The car had hill start so a few seconds before it starts rolling backwards therefore I… Read Full Review

I know you're not supposed to name members of staff but this isn't a review for the AA in general, I've had awful instructors from them in the past... If you're looking to learn to drive in Leeds then call up, good instructor who will a) make sure you pass but also b) really teach you how to drive in the meantime… Read Full Review

“Don't Waste Your Money on Drive Smart Course”

Written on: 16/03/2017 by bap23 (1 review written)

Booked my daughter (19) onto the AA Drive Smart course to build confidence after a non fault accident. The night before she was not feeling well so we tried to re-arrange but the instructor was so rude on the phone. First he told us he did not know she had had an accident and did not know that this was the reason why I had booked the AA Drive Smart lesson. He said he gets no details from the AA about who has booked a lesson despite them taking alot of details at the time of booking. He… Read Full Review

“Thank you”

Written on: 13/03/2017 by Xxxsds (1 review written)

When I started with AA, I had previously had a bad experience with another company and had lost all confidence. My instructor rebuilt my confidence, taught me at my own pace and was so nice and patient. The teaching itself was great, but what I found the best about using an AA instructor was not feeling rushed or that my instructor was getting frustrated with me for not learning things/having confidence to do things as quickly as other learners. I went from hating driving, to passing my test… Read Full Review

“Great driving instructor”

Written on: 13/03/2017

Great driving instructors are really good, very patient, absolutely great work ethic and commitment. Lot of emphasis in the getting the right technique and reinforcing it regularly. Every lesson starts with a revision from your previous lesson and ends with a summary of lesson. My instructor was pretty flexible and planned my lessons according to my work schedule… Read Full Review
