“PASSED FIRST TIME, WITH THE BEST DRIVING INSTRUCTOR!!!”

Written on: 21/08/2017 by Rhianna21 (1 review written)

I started taking driving lessons with RED in April 2017 with my instructor, and passed first time in July 2017. What an amazing driving instructor!!! Would highly recommend, made lessons fun, intriguing and quite challenging at times. Always punctual to my lessons, and pushed me to my true potential. I learnt very quickly, within a space of three months and had to gasp all of the manoeuvres. My instructor would always be there with enough flexibility of lessons if I needed to change times or… Read Full Review

“Warrington RED Driving School”

Written on: 20/08/2017 by Robertsonjl227 (1 review written)

Absolute star of an instructor. Couldn't fault his teaching cos it made me become, not only a competent driver, a confident driver. He pushes you to the limits to make sure you're learning something new every lesson. And because he's a top bloke, every lesson I would look forward to seeing him and having a great laugh (as well as a great lesson). Cheers… Read Full Review

“cant drive instructor”

Written on: 20/08/2017 by JavonCrabtree205 (1 review written)

I was on a roundabout today,when a female driving instructor looked right at me and still pulled out on to the roundabout causing me to swerve to miss her.she was utterly stupid and I recommend she re-sits her test as you shouldn't be teaching people to drive when you obviously cant. This was in the middleton, Manchester area… Read Full Review

“Poor beyond belief!”

Written on: 16/08/2017 by Theharveys2017 (1 review written)

Booked first lesson on 24th July 2017, this was then changed by the instructor due to someone booking their test. Re -booked lesson on 28th, instructor didn't show up and no contact from RED. Tried to contact instructor with no luck, contacted RED the next day to be told instructor had a family problem. Monies were eventually re-credited and we waited for local instructor to make contact. After a week we rang RED again at which point they re-booked for the 17th August (tomorrow). As this was… Read Full Review

“Amazing driving school experience!”

Written on: 16/08/2017 by Evan12 (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED driving school in the Sutton area, and my instructor's name is Ilona Szancilo. My instructor was simply fabulous, guiding me through every step while still maintaining my independence. This approach allowed me to develop confidence in my own skills as a driver in a way that was efficient and safe. I was never afraid to make mistakes and Ilona supported me throughout my learning process. At the start of every lesson I was asked about my own goals and was given plenty… Read Full Review

“I passed my driving test 2 years ago but didn't get...”

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

I passed my driving test 2 years ago but didn't get much chance to drive. Now when I bought my car, I was a bit scarred to go on the road. Then I decided to have refreshers lessons from RED. After only 6 hours of driving I feel so much confidant. My driving instructor  from Ruislip explained everything so well, Traffic lights, roundabouts, city driving, motorway driving. Also he answered all my questions I had while driving. He is a wonderful instructor. I am back on road. Thanks… Read Full Review

“Drove through RED light”

Written on: 15/08/2017

Memo to the RED driving instructor in a black mini who today 15 Aug at 3.30pm allowed his female learner to drive through a red light on Stockbury (Sittingbourne) roundabout which is a busy motorway junction (M2) completely controlled by traffic lights. Lucky for both of us that I have 34 years of driving experience to rectify my forward motion to avoid you. You need to go back to Training School… Read Full Review

“Amazing experience”

Written on: 15/08/2017

I took my lessons with a wonderful RED Driving School instructor and am so happy I didn't look elsewhere. I learnt to drive from an instructor in the Portsmouth area and enjoyed every lesson with her. She taught me everything I needed to know at a very high standard and always remained calm and patient when helping me fix my mistakes. The free RED's Road Brain Trainer programme and tracking sheets were also very helpful and prepared me for both the theory and practical tests. I would highly… Read Full Review

“Very good driving school and the best Instructor”

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the Reading area. The prices were good and the website where I can do everything what I need from buy hours to check or do booking work perfectly and very usefull. My instructor was very very friendly and we earn our goals very fast! Thank you to my instructor! He always arrived in time and concentrate to earn as much as we can and do everything perfect! He didn't help me to be a driver, he helped me to be a GOOD and CAREFULLY driver. If I think… Read Full Review

“The best instructor I've had”

Written on: 14/08/2017 by Ronella (1 review written)

I joined Red Driving school after being taught quite badly by two previous instructors with a different company and it was the best decision I've made. After failing my test 3 times at Mill Hill with another driving company and having low confidence about my abilities, my new instructor with Red was amazing. She is funny, she is down to earth and friendly and she taught me to a very high standard. After a few lessons with her, I went for my test at Hendon and passed with only one minor fault. I… Read Full Review

“Dre in South”

Most can drive, but most don't know HOW to drive. With fierce competition in today's market, Red is still showing why they are one step ahead of the rest, both with innovation and invention to provide the learner with all the tools needed to gain success. Anything less than Red Driving School is one step down. So a big shout out to Instructor, Sales Advisor and the entire Red team. Please learners, come with the right attitude and remember...Nothings easy. Give thanks… Read Full Review

“Pretty awesome experience”

Written on: 13/08/2017 by sundar0707 (1 review written)

I truly recommend my Instructor for learning to drive properly as well as to pass the test in a hassle-free fashion. His methodology of teaching takes care of all common driving test mistakes and ensures that you never do those mistakes not only during tests but well beyond after the tests. I learnt all manoeuvres from him and I do not need a rear-camera to do these manoeuvres and is pretty easy for me now. He is very prompt whenever you meet him for driving lessons and is a super warm… Read Full Review
