“Perfect instructor, value for money, 10/10...”

Written on: 25/07/2017 by Rossy04 (1 review written)

Learned to drive in the Northwich area with the person I dealt with. After struggling with a previous company I switched to this man and RED Driving School, he was a massive step up in standard and without a doubt played a major factor in me passing. He was patient, clear, precise and enthusiastic and genuinely couldn't have asked for more. The car was brand new, clean and ideal to learn to drive in. I cant thank my instructor and RED Driving School enough, Brilliant!!… Read Full Review

“A great experience ”

Written on: 25/07/2017 by 1950Chaney (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the Letchworth area, and my instructor is a great teacher and made learning to drive a pleasure, i had since recorded two friends to be taught by him, that's how happy I was! Never too busy to book a lesson and always on time and quick replies to any questions I had. Overall a great experience… Read Full Review

“Passed first time in 8 weeks!”

Written on: 24/07/2017 by JamesWhiddett (1 review written)

I had a guy as an instructor and I can't thank him enough! A really good practical approach to teaching and really easy to get on with! I was originally going to take advantage of the buy one get one free offer for a first lesson and then go on to do an intensive course elsewhere but after meeting the person I dealt with I decided to stick with him for the rest of my lessons. So glad I did!… Read Full Review

“I passed my test thanks to my instructor. ”

Written on: 23/07/2017 by kimwhite (1 review written)

I am not the most confident person but thanks to my instructor, she helped me build enough confidence to pass my test, she made driving fun and exciting and the general chats made the lessons fly by. She reassured me after i failed and even tho i failed my driving test it did not stop me trying again due to her. she helped me so much and now that i have passed i cant thank any one but her, the way she explained things and she was always calm and never got annoyed even tho i forget simple things… Read Full Review

“diabolical ”

Written on: 21/07/2017 by Marky08 (1 review written)

From my experience red driving school is running an absolutely Micky mouse operation. Having previously enjoyed a good experience with the AA I decided to recommend my girlfriend to go for a big driving school to teach her how to drive, and since the AA was not available in Cheltenham I told her to go for Red driving school (THE WORST MISTAKE EVER). To my horror the driving instructor postponed five times on the day of her lesson (however if the student did this they will be charged) and when… Read Full Review

“Best driving instructor ever!!”

Written on: 21/07/2017 by VictoriaFig (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with Red Driving School in Reading. It's definitely the best instructor to learn with. I didn't just learnt how to be a confident and safe driver, if not I really enjoyed my lessons and I had a very good time. The most important thing is that I pass my driving test on my first attempt. So definetly I will recommend to anyone who is willing to get the full driving license. Thanks a lot!!!… Read Full Review

Excellent experience learning with RED. I booked my driving test in 1 week, and RED is able to assign me an instructor in such a short time notice. Also, the instructor is quite experienced, patient and helpful. I managed to pass the test at second time with few minors, thanks to my instructor and RED… Read Full Review

“Great instructor and very patient ”

Written on: 20/07/2017 by LRowland12 (1 review written)

The instructor at RED in the Worcester area was a fantastic instructor and was very patient with me and was always supportive and understanding. I was a very nervous learner and it took me a very long time to get to a point where I could drive well and she was there with me at every stage! The lessons fit around me and my full time job so that was brilliant. Would definitely recommend her to those in the Worcester area. Friendly and a great teacher!… Read Full Review

“Fantastic instructor ”

Written on: 19/07/2017 by Slavena (1 review written)

Literally just passed my test in Portsmouth area. Would recommend my instructor to any lost soul round here - he is probably the most punctual, out-going and fantastic person that you would get the chance to be taught from! He was always on time, he managed to teach me for about 32 hours and I was a complete newbie and pretty scared of driving a car! I did get a lot of constructive criticism which was probably the best part in the whole journey as everytime I would progress more and more -… Read Full Review

“Learnt to drive”

Written on: 18/07/2017 by Careyhk423 (1 review written)

My driving instructor was absolutely excellent and I couldn't have asked for anyone else. Always made the drive fun and relaxing and never scary and tense. Another thing I thought was brilliant was the constructive criticism, this allowed me to learn from my mistakes and make sure I didn't make them again. They would never hesitate to tell you if something was wrong but would always tell you how you can improve. Would be more than happy to recommended my particular instructor… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/07/2017 by Missioner34 (1 review written)

Had some previous driving experience, but with a large gap because I stopped when I came to Southampton for university. I only had 2 months to get up to test standard. She was an incredibly good instructor, and I passed first time with 8 minor faults by having lessons with her for just under 2 months. She has a perfect teaching style - patient (never shouts, ever) but firm, making sure that you are doing everything just right. Thank you… Read Full Review

I had no idea how to drive a car. I started lessons in January with the instructor at Northampton. I passed my test in June. She was amazing! very accommodating, extremely calm, very informative.

“Excellent Driving Instructor!”

Written on: 14/07/2017 by RaffaJacko (1 review written)

I learnt to drive through RED Driving school in the Lincoln/Boston Area. There is possibly no better driving instructor around who is willing to teach you and adapt to your learning styles. I have had 3 different driving instructors (Due to moving around the UK) and I can honestly, hands down, say that he is the best one I've had. Not only is he a great instructor but he also has a laugh with you and makes you feel comfortable driving. I personally never felt confident driving until I started… Read Full Review

“Excellent Teacher!”

Written on: 13/07/2017 by Camalonious (1 review written)

I just wanted to thank my excellent driving instructor for her excellent mentorship and support through my learning journey! Having had a difficult experience with my first teacher 8 years prior, I'd been put off driving for years, but with her help and support I have had a fantastic time learning to drive and passed my test today with just 1 minor! I couldn't be happier with the service she provided and happily recommend her to anyone looking to learn in an automatic car… Read Full Review

I had an excellent experience with Red Driving - my instructor Pratish was great. He was very relaxed, good company and had some very practical 'tricks' to rely on guidance when parking, backwards reverse and driving in narrow streets. He knows the exam test area very well as well. Would highly recommend… Read Full Review

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning how to drive with Red and my instructor.
