“RED Driving instructors are UK's Top and Best Driving...”

Written on: 19/12/2014 by naveenbs7 (1 review written)

I was very nervous about driving initially as i never touched a steering in my life, he made me feel very comfortable and trained me in a way like i was not feeling nervous even if i wanted to on my driving test day, and i passed it straight away for first time. His driving standards are excellent, he is Flexible, very friendly, always on time, never skipped or not let me skip a lesson as he know for sure what is going to happen if you loose the track. Many instructors are different but i think… Read Full Review

“RED Driving school changed my life for good!”

Written on: 18/12/2014 by brianchaurodriguez (1 review written)

Oh my goodness; I can tell you a million good things about RED Driving school, that it won't all fit in this box! What a fantastic service! I passed my driving test on 17/12/14 at the age of 17!!!!!   I've been recommending my instructor to all of my friends! An excellent grade 5 instructor with well over 10 years of instructor experience! This man needs to be recognised! The online booking service is very useful indeed, and the over-the-phone service is exemplary too! Thank you RED!!! :D… Read Full Review

Wow. Great review. "A million good things about RED". Thank you so much for your kind words. Congratulations on passing and well done. Getting a driving license does indeed change your life as it gives you a certain type of freedom that you can't get using the bus!! I wish you many years of safe and happy motoring.

Written on: 17/12/2014 by rosiejocoster (1 review written)

When starting with Red driving school I was a really nervous driver. But from the get go the instructor made me feel at ease and from then on my confidence grew.

“Best instructor at Red = Prudie Whitney = Pass First Time”

Written on: 16/12/2014 by RobesonReeves (1 review written)

Very clear accurate driving instructor. She wrote what you needs to do, talks you through it or shows and then you do it yourself. She has some funny sayings that you won't forget when you drive and it just makes everything easier. She kept me relaxed when I drove and each lesson I learnt more about the 'Art of Driving'. I learnt that, preparing, observing and being at the right speed is the key to comfortable, smooth drive. I started to take lessons in late October. I passed first time on… Read Full Review

“RED driving in Tenbury”

Written on: 15/12/2014 by DanHughes (2 reviews written)

After looking at various other places I decided to give RED a try. The person on the phone said there was a new instructor who was able to start almost straight away. I learnt to drive with a man in the Shropshire area. I had a lot of fun on the lessons and found 12 weeks after having my first lesson I was confidently going in for test. The lesson planner works well as it shows what you need to work on and gives a good indication of how much progress you have made. He is very patient and if you… Read Full Review

“Red Driving School:West Wickham”

Written on: 14/12/2014 by Rebekah123 (1 review written)

I had prior driving experience in another country and had developed bad driving habits. Driving in London made me so nervous. My instructor was able to help eliminate each of these habits and instill confidence and sharpen my driving skills. She was skillful, understanding, patient and extremely funny. I heard her voice in my head on my test because she connects the manoeuvres with a memorable story or joke. The best instructor to have is an excellent driver and an even better teacher. She… Read Full Review

Congratulations on passing. I note you were an experienced driver from another country and sometimes that makes it even harder to pass the UK test so very well done. Thank you for your very generous review and best wishes with your future motoring.

“Red Driving School - Shala Mirza”

Written on: 14/12/2014 by Byrd374 (1 review written)

I found learning to drive with Shala Mirza was a great experience, I'd previously started out learning with a different instructor but found his availability was very poor and so started with Shala who was recommendation by a friend. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as she made me feel extremely confident and explained things very thoroughly. Her flexibility in arranging lessons also made learning more convenient for me when I began working full time, she made me work hard and… Read Full Review

Thank you for your very nice review. I am delighted to read your comments and congratulations on passing. I too think RED is great value (I would say that wouldn't I?) but as with most things in life, you get what you pay for. RED lessons are not necessarily the least expensive in the market but they are great value!! Thanks again.

“John Marshall Red”

Written on: 13/12/2014 by danf101 (1 review written)

John Marshsall Instructor very good, was always on time and flexible to my erratic working hours, his advice was good and I passed my test first time with two minors, without him it would not have been possible. If you do it though red you can always change instructors if you do not like. Would recommend to anyone in the Harrow/ Ruislip area. He also offers pass plus which is also very good and useful for development of driving… Read Full Review

I am sorry to read of your experience. We are going to look into the matter. Please be reassured though that when a customer requests a refund for lessons not yet taken, we operate a "no quibble" money back guarantee. It takes time to complete as checks must be made to ensure the funds are transferred to the correct account but please bear with us. Your refund is on its way. Sorry you were disappointed with RED and I wish you the best of luck in achieving your goal of passing the driving test.

“Worst instructor possible ”

Written on: 13/12/2014 by mxHale1987 (1 review written)

Worst instructor ever,ended up crying after every lesson and petrified of driving. Completely ruined my confidence. Got a new instructor and everything the red instructor had told me was wrong and had to start all over again. Complete waste of money and made it even harder to learn. Finally passed with three minors without any help from the red instructor… Read Full Review

“Amazeballs”

Written on: 11/12/2014 by Jason1442 (1 review written)

Would definitely go with RED driving school again if I could go back and start again. The member of staff I had was extremely friendly and organised which helped not only give me confidence in my driving but that I would actually pass (Which I have with only 2 minors). RED is also a lot cheaper than most other driving institutes I found and has quite a couple of complimentary things that come with the service such as a website which you can practise your theory on and plenty of information on… Read Full Review

“RED Rules!!”

Written on: 07/12/2014 by Lawrenceot377 (1 review written)

I passed my test second time around with RED with only 5 minors. Couldn't be more thrilled. The instructors I had were extremely friendly and we had a right old laugh together!! Because of them, they gave me the confidence and skills to remain calm and collected during the test. I'd definitely recommend RED to anyone who's starting out!! May be a bit pricey, but its so worth it!! Thank you RED!! You guys absolutely rock!!… Read Full Review
