“I passed first time with red driving school and I'm so...”

Written on: 23/03/2017 by evboom18 (1 review written)

I passed first time with red driving school and I'm so happy! I only had 3 minors. I took my test in Lee On Solent Hampshire as recommended by my driving instructor as it tends to be abit quieter. My driving instructor made me feel so relaxed! She was really easy going, positive and easily approachable. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family!… Read Full Review

“Experienced, Practical and Patient. If you want to...”

Written on: 23/03/2017

Experienced, Practical and Patient. If you want to learn to drive for life and learn it right the first time around, I would highly recommend Red Driving School. You will learn all the little tricks that drivers use on the roads to make them better but more importantly safer drivers. I passed my test in Guildford (lots of roundabouts!) and am glad I chose him as my instructor. … Read Full Review

“Shapour Alishahi driving instructor ”

Written on: 23/03/2017 by Lydia1234 (1 review written)

Shapour Alishahi was a fantastic instructor. I passed my test in Hendon, London. I have previously had 5 different teachers who were not with the Red Driving School, I was extremely dissapointed with them all. Shapour always arrived on time and would often give me a bit extra too. He was really focused and professional and never answered his phone calls during the lesson. He wrote notes as we were driving and explained things really clearly on a white board. My driving has improved… Read Full Review

“Passed with Pratish!”

Written on: 23/03/2017 by Lavender1992 (1 review written)

Passed today under the instruction of Pratish, who was very patient and was careful to let me know what my mains errors were and how to correct them. I would recommend anyone to him. I have ADHD and a lot of instructors would grow impatient with that, but not him. It was also my first attempt. So happy. Thank you so much!… Read Full Review

“Could not fault ”

Written on: 21/03/2017 by Sophie96 (1 review written)

Was taught by Margy who covers the Huyton area of Liverpool and I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with her. She was so patient and encouraging and filled me with confidence so that on test day I felt calm and prepared and passed first time with only 2 minors. Could not speak highly enough of her… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2017 by beckyrobertson (1 review written)

Passed my theory before taking lessons. Had my first lesson and was near test standard so worked on my naughty habits. I would highly recommend the driving instructor i had if your in the newcastle/north east area. I got him in his first week of instructing.. Really nice guy had a lot of patience and understanding. As for the company i cant say anything bad about them i didnt deal with them very often just rang up to pay for lessons… Read Full Review

Had same Instructor for about 6 months. Informed him in January of Test date Mid March. 2 weeks before Test informed me he could not make Test date & I needed new Instructor or use Dads Car !! Given another Instructor for a 2 hour lesson the week before Test. (turned up 25 mins late without apology). Again turned up 35 mins late on morning of Test !! Had to learn new car & controls just before test which was not ideal. surprise surprise, failed Test. There are plenty of other schools out there… Read Full Review

We are sorry to read of your experience and that you failed your test. You don't say why the instructor wasn't available but a key advantage of learning with RED is that another instructor was available. I hope you eventually find your way to test success.

“Fantastic instructor!”

Written on: 19/03/2017

Vienessa Hanif was my RED driving instructor, based in the Smethwick area of the West Midlands. I came to her after a bad experience with a previous instructor from another company, which had left me feeling unenthusiastic about driving and doubting that I would ever be good enough to pass my test. From my first lesson with Vienessa, I felt much more positive and relaxed. After every lesson, I came away feeling like I had improved and was becoming a better driver. She was very encouraging and… Read Full Review

“Clean test! thank you RED Driving School ”

Written on: 19/03/2017 by Manuel_LM (1 review written)

I took 10 lessons (20 hours) with the instructor from RED Driving School ant it was simply perfect. He is very patient, he doesn't mind explaining as many times as required all the concepts, and he shared many tips in order to be ready for the driving test; furthermore, he is capable to tell you if you need more training or if you are ready. I was expecting a good test, and I got a clean test! Thank you RED Driving School and thanks a lot! Manuel (St. Albans) Tip: if you are an experienced… Read Full Review

“First driving lesson”

Written on: 18/03/2017 by Dalrymple333 (1 review written)

Despite feeling nervous yet excited for my first driving lesson, this was made much easier by the thorough yet detailed instructions. The booking system of RED driving school made the whole process much smoother, as you can book your lessons online as well as having a progress track report to see your progression overtime. We have already discussed when I would like to pass by right from the very first lesson which shows the intention of the driving school to ensure that all of their… Read Full Review

“Instructor did not turn up”

Written on: 18/03/2017 by qcFuller179 (1 review written)

What a load of rubbish. Joel Mulongeki did not turn up. Left no messages to say he won't be able to make it. Kept ringing him & did not pick up. Joel thanks for wasting my time. Funny how when I booked the lesson the advisor took him time telling me RED has a very high customer satisfaction rate. Well I don't think so mate. You should have offered a free driving lesson to make up for it. So much talk for a very high customer satisfaction rate… Read Full Review

“Worth the money”

Written on: 17/03/2017 by watsonh1 (1 review written)

My teacher was in Birmingham and I just passed this morning. In the past I had used other independant driving instructors, but had to leave as they were not very professional and one would often threaten to cancel my test if I made a mistake. I went straight to RED Driving School and he assured me that I was almost ready for my test, I just needed to practice my maneouvres. He was always 10 minutes early to our lesson, was very polite and explained everything in an understandable way, I went… Read Full Review
