“The best driving school going!”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by Anthonyn449 (1 review written)

Red were the third driving company I had lessons with and the only one which made me feel truly comfortable. I'd happily recommend them to anyone learning to drive as the entire process from booking lessons, meeting with my instructor and finally taking and passing my test was straight forward and clear. After learning to drive with Red you'll be a confident, safe and happy driver! … Read Full Review

“Amazing!!!”

Written on: 28/08/2014 by ojthespoiltbrat (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the Kent area with the instructor, and he was an amazing instructor! I passed first time and i thoroughly enjoyed all of my lessons. Every lesson had laughs and chatter in them, so i didn't feel uncomfortable at all. My instructor was extremely helpful and easy to talk to, and he'd allow me to decide what i wanted to practice and go over, and would be very understanding every time i messed up. He'd give me constant advice and reassurance and would… Read Full Review

Hi. Delighted to hear you passed with RED. You should be very happy and we are glad we got you through your test. Rather bemused by your review though. A refund for what, one might ask as your post is unclear? But if I am guessing correctly, you pre-paid for lessons which in the end you didn't need. That's great - means we obviously exceeded even your own expectations and you passed your test with fewer lessons than you expected!! Refunds on pre-paid lessons (when RED was paid rather than the instructor directly) which are no longer needed or required are 100% guaranteed. No quibble - guaranteed. Once requested, they are processed and checked to ensure the money goes to the right person. This process is necessary to protect our customers' money. It takes a few days for the finance depart to complete the process but a refund to the original customer is guaranteed. If you still haven't received a refund, call RED and repeat your request. Posting anonymously here will not speed up what is a 100% guaranteed promise of repayment and giving RED and your instructor a one star review for getting you through your test seems rather inappropriate. Congratulations again on passing your test and drive safely out there!

“Passed first time!”

I learnt to drive with RED driving school in the Fetcham and Guildford area. My driving instructor has great techniques to help you learn and progress whilst driving. Also he is a patient instructor which always makes you feel comfortable in the car (which is a bonus)! I would definitely recommend him to others and want to thank him for helping me learn to pass first time!… Read Full Review

“RED is the new black!”

Written on: 22/08/2014

I passed my test first time against several odds with RED! I would highly recommend this driving school. I did my all lessons in Bristol and then relocated to SW London & Sean Cullen helped me in the final stages before my test. I felt I was taught to a very high standard and that meant I could go into my test with confidence. I felt I was really getting what I was paying for - top quality instructing. He made me feel at ease from the start. He explained all the various elements clearly &… Read Full Review

“I've had a fair few share of driving instructors over...”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by AlexandraClark123 (1 review written)

I've had a fair few share of driving instructors over the past year, after booking my driving test just 1 month later, my previous driving instructor became too expensive so I found the instructor. She was laid back, made me feel comfortable but had the ability to keep telling me where my problems lay. In terms of my manoeuvres she taught me in such a simplified way that I had improved more with her than previously over my whole driving. I would defiantly recommend her to anyone and everyone… Read Full Review

Congratulations on passing your test and enjoy your motoring freedom.

“Passed first time”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by Norwich1234 (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School around Norwich with my instructor James Bartram, and found it very easy to get started and get a long with him. I already had the basics and he was easily able to adjust to help me more. He also collected me fro multiple different places to make it easier for me. Just ensure that you book your lessons well in advance so you get the times you want… Read Full Review

“Outstanding ”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by CSweny28 (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED driving school in Penzance with an advisor, a truly patient and amazing instructor! Learning to drive was something I once thought impossible and I put it off for a while. But it was such an amazing experience and nothing was ever too much trouble, she was extremely flexible and supportive through out it all. I know I couldn't of had a better instructor, thank you RED but more importantly thank you!… Read Full Review

I Highly Recommend Red Driving School, First Class Professionals Very polite,helpfuland professional when you needed them, and kept to their word if they needed to get back to you, they did.

I can't recommend RED enough! My driving instructor, Kerry, was utterly amazing at teaching me everything I needed to know to not only become, but equally maintain, a confident and skilled driver!

“Passed my test in 3 1/2 Months!”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Sydney396 (1 review written)

I would highly recommend RED Driving School and my instructor. I began my lessons in the Slough area in early May and passed my test just this afternoon a little over 3 months later! My instructor was patient and confidence building and I came away from every lesson happy that I had built upon what I had learned previously. I had a little under 60 hours overall and thoroughly believe that it was money well spent. … Read Full Review

“Super instructor, passed 1st time!”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by nic2014 (1 review written)

After a few years of waiting I finally decided to try for my driving licence. I used Red Driving School and I was very impressed, great website with a straight forward account area to manage your lessons and payments. I took my lessons in Gateshead, the instructor was patient and relaxed which really put me a ease. He taught me exactly what I needed to know in order to pass my test. In total I only needed 8 lessons because he was concise and didn't waste time learning irrelevant material. I… Read Full Review

I 'phoned to enquire about lessons for my son and when I mentioned it's advertised from £10 per hour, I was told that doesn't mean from £10 per hour. I tried to tell the agent that this is not legal and he shouted over me. Avoid like the plague!… Read Full Review

We are sorry to read of your frustration but please be assured that all our advertising is 100% legal and compiles fully with the requirements of the Advertising Standards Authority. We do indeed offer driving lessons from £10 per hour. Prices vary across the country but presumably you were requesting lessons in an area where the £10 price is not offered. Please note that all our calls our recorded. Please email RED your details and the approximate time of the call, we will investigate what exactly was said and be happy to share our findings with you. Thank you.
