“Recommended Driving Instructor”

Written on: 20/09/2017 by CPJ123 (1 review written)

I've only got good things to say about my instructor, Juraj, who helped turn me from a timid and nervous driver, into a confident and efficient man behind the wheel. I would highly recommend this instructor, I wouldn't have been able to pass without him. Hats off… Read Full Review

“Fantastic and well looked after ”

Written on: 19/09/2017 by Loup17 (1 review written)

I started to drive 3months ago with red I had worked with two instructors one witch was a man who made me feel so at ease and made the lessons comfable and explained every thing so well. He helped with pointers and questions and was ready to answer. This was a late booking with the person I dealt with but was a great time we had and fit me in around the bookings I had all ready had. It was great to have some one that knew what was what but also had a laugh and a giggle with you and made me… Read Full Review

“Most appalling company”

Written on: 19/09/2017 by PhilipSL (1 review written)

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. Their approach to booking lessons leaves much to be desired - Pay first then try to find a mutually convenient time with your instructor who never returns your calls or texts. Currently for our son, we are able to book about one lesson a month due to instructor availability. DO NOT USE THEM unless you have a year or so to get your child through his/her driving test. APPALLING… Read Full Review

“Dre in South.. again”

Written on: 17/09/2017 by 1953McManus (1 review written)

I completed my Plus Pass with a calm facilitatitve ADI instructor from Lewisham, South London. This was the type of instructor I wanted to have from when I did my first set of lessons with Red Driving School several months ago. His demands for immense concentration are still just as high as my previous instructor, but his natural sense of calmness, youthfulness and being relational allows yourself as the learner to enjoy your lessons and focus solely on improving your driving and safety. Not… Read Full Review

“Thank you to a great instructor.”

Written on: 16/09/2017 by Clarissa199 (1 review written)

I do find lessons very expensive BUT the instructor I had (S.C.) was absolutely amazing: supportive, encouraging and patient. I took my exam 3 times before passing and he has helped me after every failed exam. Good service… Read Full Review

“No committment and responsibility whatsoever”

Written on: 15/09/2017 by Rylie228 (1 review written)

Poor customer service from both the office and the instructor, and unfair terms and conditions! I booked 5 consecutive days of driving lessons to have more practice before the driving test next week. The instructor called the day before to cancel all 5 practice sessions, claiming she has other priorities and my home is too far (only 3-4 miles) from her previous student. As a result, I have to reschedule the test to late October and canceled the two weeks holiday planned in October that I… Read Full Review

“simply the best”

Written on: 15/09/2017 by SantaV (1 review written)

I had brilliant instructor who is very professional and helped me pass quickly. He is very patient and calm, very honest with feedback after each lesson and makes you, as a student, feel safe and confident. I suggest to buy bulk lessons instead of individual ones though as it makes it a lot cheaper. Would definitely recommend them to others!… Read Full Review

“Learning in London ”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by Cabill (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with the person I dealt with from RED driving school in London. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I have for many years been too nervous in cars to learn to drive, but her down to earth manner and the confidence she has in you immediately made me feel I could drive. She was really tuned into the teaching style that would work with me and made me feel relaxed from day one. She will challenge you and support you throughout the proceedings until you love driving… Read Full Review

“One Very Happy Young Lady”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by AndrewJP (1 review written)

I purchased the initial package of three lessons, with discount, for my 18-year-old Daughter. She had some previous lessons, with another school, but did not seem to be progressing as I would have liked. From the first three, two-hour lessons with RED, she was really enthused and was so obviously comfortable with her instructor. OK, it was more than I had been paying previously, but she was really happy, and the constant feedback, from the reports she got every lesson, showed the progress she… Read Full Review

“Brilliant ”

Written on: 14/09/2017 by tydriver (1 review written)

My instructor was really great and patient with me. The way he teaches makes it clear that, all that he's interested in is a leaner's success in driving. I understood much with him making it easier for me to pass my test. The money is worth it. I am confident and I have the skills now. Red is the best… Read Full Review

“Couldn't have asked for a better instructor ”

Written on: 13/09/2017 by Rileyot233 (1 review written)

I started driving in May and with not many lessons and hours I have managed to pass my practical exam first time. My instructor,  (who I would definitely recommend) helped me every step of the way, even when I did things wrong, would recommend to anyone who is about to start driving. He does not only teach you how to pass your exam but how to drive for life… Read Full Review

“Thorough and keen instructor ”

Written on: 13/09/2017 by 226Chapman (1 review written)

I am an experienced driver from overseas and therefore needed someone with a good balance between being firm to knock those bad habits and gentle to motivate me. The person I dealt with was really thorough with her explanations, very organised with her scheduling, very professional and seems very passionate about me passing the test. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks a lot to the person I dealt with - you were awesome… Read Full Review

“Bad Instructors ”

Written on: 12/09/2017 by Thomas88 (1 review written)

I had two driving instructor's with RED, I had 5 lessons with the first one. He wouldn't let me drive the car, the only thing we did during those five 2 hour lessons was reversing. The second instructor I had  used to shout and swear at me. Being with RED was a complete wast of time and money. I've lost all my confidence with driving… Read Full Review

“Great Instructor”

Written on: 12/09/2017 by JohnnyWoodruff190 (1 review written)

I had previously learnt to drive at a different driving school and after having failed twice, I decided to switch schools and I'm very glad I did. My instructor was in the Nottingham area and he's such a nice guy and a great instructor. He really made me feel at ease during my lessons and made sure that I knew exactly what I was doing all the time. He gave me fool-proof methods of nailing all of my manoeuvres and I don't have anything negative to say. With RED, I finally managed to pass my test… Read Full Review

“Great Driving Intructor”

Written on: 11/09/2017 by Cjones1093 (1 review written)

Just an amazing driving instructor. I was really nervous at first but the instructor was great. I never felt rushed or like I was wasting my time. I'm sure some instructors are better than others in the driving school...but mine was probably one of the best. Great person to learn from and just a nice person too. Plus the car was really nice too. If I could put the instructors name here I would, because that's the instructor I would tell you to pick. As for value for money, I would say it's… Read Full Review
