Written on: 10/02/2016 by Sammymwell (1 review written)

I started driving in September and passed my test first time in February! I wouldn't have been able to do it without my instructor, who believed in me and who always remained calm in sticky situations at the beginning of my driving experience! I would definitely recommend him to a friend or anyone looking to learn how to drive in Edinburgh!… Read Full Review

“Excellent Driving Tuition ”

Written on: 10/02/2016

I finalised my driving tuition with RED Driving School in the Southall area, and my instructor’s name is Mr Kaye (Khelife) Aichoun. I say finalised – as I transferred from another well known driving school after failing my driving test on the first occasion. However, I passed my driving test on the second attempt – thanks to the excellent tuition from my RED Driving School instructor. He displayed a lot of patience, understanding and technical knowledge – which was very much lacking… Read Full Review

I started my lessons towards the end of September and passed my test today! which is February 2016. I couldn't have done it without the help and great support my driving instructor Antonio gave me! He has been amazing and wonderful to work with. He always believed in me and pushed me to the limit to do better. I was in particularly impressed with the way he was always there for me and was always flexible with my lessons. I can't thank him enough. We got on really well and I am definitely… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2016 by Kristina2016 (1 review written)

I started with Red in August 2015 and got my shiny licence in January 2016. My instructor was outstanding. He really worked hard at pushing me out of my comfort zone and I am sure that he helped me become a confident driver. He was very understanding and helpful through the process and is someone who really inspired me to be better. I can't thank him enough. I would recommend the Red driving school to others. They have an online portal to help you learn as well, which isn't too bad. The… Read Full Review

“Inconsistent driving instructors”

Written on: 09/02/2016 by Alijah237 (1 review written)

My daughter recently passed with red first time last week. Had two driving instructors, first said she was ready after 20 lessons and to take her test. He then left the driving school or became in contactable. Second instructor comes along, after first lesson informs daughter she needs another 20 lessons, cancel her test as she's not reached the Red driving school standard. We decide to go for the test and she passes. If she had taken 20 more lessons at £30 each that would have been £600… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/02/2016 by jqCostello465 (1 review written)

I have just passed my driving test, and I must say that my driving instructor was crucial to my passing excellently, on my first attempt! To begin with, he was strict, firm and completely focussed on ensuring that I understood all the routines and maneuvers. With such a resolute attitude, and his willingness to ensure that I grasp what driving is all about, I was highly encouraged and well placed towards understanding everything I needed to know to PASS the test on a first attempt! I would… Read Full Review

“An absolute joke!”

Written on: 08/02/2016 by cdBlevins372 (1 review written)

My first instructor didn't even turn up to my lesson. He wouldnt answer his calls and when I phoned up Red they couldnt contact him either. My lesson was rearranged with a new instructor and the first two lessons were good but he didn't turn up for the third and didn't answer his phone. Terrible experience that I wouldnt recommend to anyone!! My friend used to work for Red and he says it was terrible and he didn't recommend them to anyone and I should have listened to him!!… Read Full Review

“Friendly instructor put a nervous older learner at ease!”

Written on: 06/02/2016 by bombtempi (1 review written)

I learned to drive with RED Driving School in the York area. I am 41 years old, so came to driving later than most and was nervous and a little reluctant to get started. Right from the off he was really friendly and put me at ease straight away. I had around 30 hours of lessons with him and couldn't recommend him highly enough. I was a reluctant learner who had put off driving for far too long, but my instructor made it so that before long I was actually enjoying driving and looking forward… Read Full Review

You can tell she is a mother. She takes care of her students like her own kin.

What a waste of time. Lied about having female instructors, when we insisted the instructor came 40 miles. Cancelled more,times than turned up. Often 5 minutes before the lesson. Then stopped coming at all. Trying to get money back a nightmare. Passed from. Department to department… Read Full Review

I am sorry to hear of your experience. Refunds are guaranteed for money paid on lessons not taken. Female instructors are in great demand. I hope you eventually find your way to test success but it might be better to have an instructor who lives nearer!

I hope your daughter eventually finds the instructor she prefers and in due course achieves test success. Refunds for lessons not taken are offered with no quibble but as per our T&C's there is a small non-refundable administration charge of £1.99 for bookings.

“The best instructor!”

Written on: 28/01/2016 by 347Crabtree (1 review written)

Driving has been my biggest challenge so far, I've been with 5 different instructors and had just as many tests, but I passed with Red driving school. You know when you have a good instructor especially when you have others to compare to. My instructor was the best and he had been recommended by a friend who had recently passed. He challenged me enough to make the final test so easy. He was very professional and experienced and gave me the best tips for the test and prepare me to actually drive… Read Full Review
