“Very happy”

Written on: 27/02/2017 by ShaneDL (1 review written)

I have just passed first time and I'm very happy. My instructor was Devi and she was very friendly and supportive. She really helped build up my confidence and she has a good way of helping you remember and understand things. When I first started I was very unconfident and I can't believe how much progress I have made, passing first time with barely any problems. I would definitely reccommend to anyone wanting to learn how to drive well… Read Full Review

“Great instructor, Highly Recommend”

Written on: 26/02/2017 by MeganHill (1 review written)

Red driving school has been recommended to me by several friends who had passed using their instructors. I have to say I'm so glad I followed their advice, although the lessons aren't the cheapest out there the support offered by not only the instructor but also the red brain trainer which helps you to go over what you have just learnt. The hours offered are very flexible as I found that a lot of other instructors didn't give lessons on weekends and after 5 on weekdays. If you need anymore… Read Full Review

“Geethi - review”

Written on: 26/02/2017 by Barry341 (1 review written)

My driving instructor, geethi, was fabulous. Very good at both the theory and the practical. Calm and understanding; she was very good to at working with me to improve my technique and enhance my confidence. Modern and easy to use car. Not only did I learn how to pass my test, I also learnt how to drive safely and with composure in difficult driving conditions or when I encountered unexpected events. This is essential when driving in London! I recommend without caveat… Read Full Review

“Outstanding from beginning to end”

Written on: 25/02/2017 by Leonard199 (1 review written)

Rich was an absolute hero from the moment I stepped into the car, all the way up until he dropped me home after passing my test (first time with two minors to boot). I thought I'd never pass! However Rich always showed belief in me, and helped me so much with not just teaching me the skills to pass my test but to genuinely be a great driver. I looked forward to my lesson every week, and within a couple of weeks it was like being taught by an old mate. The only problem now is I'm going to… Read Full Review

“Helpful, clear, valuable”

Written on: 23/02/2017 by eeBaxter421 (1 review written)

Just passed my driving test first time thanks to the help of my driving instructor, who throughout my lessons was calm, easy to talk to, clear with his instructions and overall gave me the necessary preparation I needed for my test. Progress reports let students know how far away they are from being ready for their test, and how far they have come since they started. I would definitely recommend the Red Driving school to anyone wanting to learn how to drive… Read Full Review

“Terrible, Terrible, Terrible”

I have spoken to the customer service manager regarding the complaint. I understand that all the calls are recorded and would be grateful if you could listen to them. My daughter was taking driving lessons with a man who I understand has green licence since November 2014. My daughter had a lesson on 27 January 2017 on that lesson her instructor has used F swearing word which is not even allowed on television, the first hour he had shouted at my daughter whilst she was driving until he had a 5… Read Full Review

Your complaint was noted already and has been thoroughly investigated. No further action is planned. We understand that your daughter's previous driving school refunded you some element of your fees following your complaint to them. Despite this information, as a gesture of goodwill, we made you an offer which you declined. That matter is now closed. We wish your daughter well in her future endeavours and hope she passes her test in due course.

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School. I would highly recommend her service to anyone in the Abingdon/South Oxford area. |My instructor made me feel comfortable in the first few weeks of driving. Good company and easy to chat with even when first getting to know her. Prompt to lesson starts. Offered a discount system when bulk buying lessons Very flexible around my busy schedule. and prepared me thoroughly for my test. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Thank you to her!… Read Full Review

I struggle with self doubt and suffer with anxiety, the person I dealt with was fantastic guided me through every step of the lessons and we discussed what we had done in great detail, but most of all she made me feel calm and relaxed instead of me being anxious and feeling I would fail...I passed first time because she helped me through it! Any questions I had or panics I had she called me and text me to help me and encourage me. A very good instructor, patient and always helps you through. A… Read Full Review

“Passed first time with Ebtekar!”

Written on: 17/02/2017 by Francesca2017 (1 review written)

After 10 years of putting off lessons, due to a terrible first lesson experience at 17, I finally booked with Red. Unlike AA/BSM ,they were able to fulfill automatic lessons in my area. My driving instructor Ebtekar was fantastic - very patient, friendly, punctual and professional. With his help I passed my theory and driving test first time round after 3 months of lessons (30 hours). I couldn't recommend him more, and look forward to continuing my PassPlus lessons with him & Red Driving… Read Full Review
