“Good driving school”

Written on: 18/10/2017 by lishy_lish (1 review written)

I enjoyed learning with AA. The advice I would give is don't be afraid to change instructor if you're not happy. I changed mine and he ended up passing me. However very good driving school,they are patient and understood my pace of learning. Thanks AA I'm now on the road being a safe driver. I did 2 hour lessons approaching my test that helped alot. On my actual test day I couldn't take my test because the examiner had an accident. This was my advantage to get more practice in. Many thanks AA… Read Full Review

“I would highly recommend using AA driving school”

Written on: 17/10/2017 by SamLew1234 (1 review written)

I really enjoyed learning with AA the customer service and to know your instructor has got a company behind them if you have any problem you can contact them and I even feel my examiner respected me more than when I would of come with any random car with a L plate on the roof… Read Full Review

“Showed late, changed car day of test w/o notice,...”

Written on: 17/10/2017 by Emmaleet134 (1 review written)

My instructor was not reliable and in preparation for my first test which I failed, he gave me incorrect guidance on a specific junction. I followed the instructions (turning right on a one way) and was failed for positioning where he told me. Not wanting to start from scratch I used same instructor to prepare for second test. He didn’t show up at our appointed time, forcing me to pay out of pocket for Uber to the test center, and then he showed up with a new car that I wasn’t accustomed to… Read Full Review

“WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by Tanner385 (1 review written)

I started my lessons with an instructor who operates around the Huddersfield area and I must say he was absolutely excellent. He was well mannered and extremely well Organised, always arriving early to pick me up and with a lesson plan already planned out meant we could get straight to work. Overall he was able to train me up good enough that after 10 2 hour lessons I was ready for my driving test which may I add I passed first time without any minors! I urge you to stick to a main stream… Read Full Review

“Passed for the first time!”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by AndreaP92 (2 reviews written)

I had a really good experience with AA and it's all thanks to my amazing instructor. He was very patient, his explanations were easy to follow and he helped me out with everything I wasn't sure about (unlikely my previous instructor from RED who was completely useless). My instructor actually put effort into teaching me and driving with him was actually relaxing and pleasant. Eventually my test felt easy and I passed for the first time… Read Full Review

“AA is amazing”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by Niammhh (1 review written)

The AA driving instructor I was give was amazing always prompt for lessons and well organised. On the areas I struggled with we went over them in a couple of lessons and I got it! I felt comfortable with my driving instructor as when I didn’t get something or I did something wrong he would make me pull over and explain how I did it and then asked me to explain to him how I could do it better the next time. Overall a really good experience, would recommend my driving instructor to a friend… Read Full Review

“Disorganized and wasteful ”

Written on: 15/10/2017 by MckennaMurdock (1 review written)

My instructor was so disorganized and he only cared about losing money for himself. If he came 35 mins late for a lesson we would still have having meaning I lost that amount of time to practice and money spent. He also cancelled lessons all the time even 10 mins before about 3 times but when I cancelled 36 hours before I'd lose a £54 lesson. I cancelled the rest of my lessons and moved elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Fantastic service and instructor! ”

Written on: 14/10/2017 by 68Halsey (1 review written)

After first trying another service last year and failing miserably, I gave the AA driving school a go this year. I booked lesson via a local instructor. The person I dealt with was fantastic and I could tell from the first lesson I was in better hands than the other school I used. She was patient and knowledgeable and well organized and taught me so much more than I thought I had to learn. Overall the AA service from their website to their call operators was perfect and I have nothing but… Read Full Review

“Great instruction, worth the pennies”

Written on: 12/10/2017 by Ki-el (1 review written)

My instructor was great. He was polite, cheerful and informative in a well communicated manor. I had changed to AA as my previous instructor had to take a couple of months off for personal reasons. I had learnt more with my first 45 minutes than I had in 14 odd hours before with that I was sold. I was unsure going into the AA as they were more expensive but it was worth every penny. My issue was with how booked up he would get. This was more of an issue on my test and after tests. My own… Read Full Review

“Excellent teaching, fair prices.”

Written on: 12/10/2017 by Hess416 (1 review written)

Driving instructor I was allocated was great. He was able to pinpoint the underlying reasons for a lot of the mistakes I made and I was able to correct them quickly because of it. There was a mistake that I repeatedly made when going uphill but he was still very patient. It took me a total of 29 hours before I took my test and got it first try. I think the price is a little too high for what it is worth though… Read Full Review

“Gave Excellent Tips”

Written on: 09/10/2017

I really enjoyed my time with AA even though I was only able to have 10 hours with them, I learnt a lot and I was given great tips to improve my driving and control on the car. The car was also great. I did not pass with them as my instructor was not available on the day of my test (he had already booked a holiday from before I started with him). I felt confident that I would pass but he still kept insisting to put my test date forward but I did not and passed first time with another… Read Full Review

“Thank you AA!”

Written on: 09/10/2017 by Napierpk106 (1 review written)

I had a great experience with AA. Comming from being able to drive in America I had a few American driving style habits to correct and it is a bit more lax in what you need to know to drive there and they were grateful in helping me transition. My instructor was great and was very perceptive on when something was frustrating (maneuvers) me to much to carry on with for that lesson but also knew when to push just that little bit because they knew I had it just needed to be patient and confident… Read Full Review

“Best driving instructor ever!!!!!”

Written on: 09/10/2017

I just started driving in august and passed first time round last week. My instructor Taz is one of a kind. I was totally afraid of driving and had experience with my first instructor, taz was able to motivate me and boost my confidence! Can't recommend him enough! Nothing I didn't like, apart from how long it is to top up my account, wish there was an online payment portal, annoying that you have to call the line!… Read Full Review

“More expensive but worth it”

Written on: 08/10/2017 by Ballardvt430 (1 review written)

Obviously being a franchise they are more expensive than the 1 man bands, but that’s to be expected, instructor was okay, made sure I knew what I was doing although sometimes it did feel as if he was forgetful of what we done in the previous lessons, I felt like I was ready to take my test about a month before he told me to take my test, but I ended up passing first time anyway, I’ve tried other schools like BSM,Around the bend and RED and AA was by far the best. The site to pay is terrible… Read Full Review
