“PARENTS BE VERY CAUTIOUS ”

THIS IS TO ALL PARENTS WHO WISH TO BOOK LESSON FOR THEIR CHILDREN AS BIRTHDAY PRESENT. I BOUGHT BLOCK LESSONS WHICH STARTED OFF FINE FOR MY SON.

We have investigated this review and plan to take no further action. The pupil had his final lesson with RED on the 7th February 2014. This review was posted on the 16 September 2014 after the pupil had passed his test with another school. Note that it still took over 7 months to for the pupil to be test ready. It is not easy to pass the driving test these days and some parents have expectations based on their own experience 20 or 30 years ago. The pupil’s mother, Mrs Williams did indeed call RED on the 16 September, 7 months after the last lesson, and we have reviewed the recording of that call. No action will be taken and no compensation will be offered. Mrs Williams made a private arrangement with the Instructor and paid him direct rather than pre-pay for lessons with the RED. The instructor delivered all the lessons he was paid for and as stated above no complaints were made until over 7 months later. It is worth mentioning that the Instructor in question left RED in June.

We are sorry that this customer feels the service did not meet expectations. A major advantage of learning with RED and pre-paying for lessons via the Company is that should a customer be dissatisfied with their instructor, there is always an option to switch to another RED instructor or have the unused funds refunded. This is clearly not possible with any private arrangements between pupils and instructors or complaints made months after the lessons.

“Great experience and fantastic instructor!! ”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by chloev13 (1 review written)

Made a fantastic choice for choosing to learn to drive with Red Driving School, my instructor couldn't have been more helpful and patient with me, the lessons were completely tailored to what I needed to learn and when I couldn't master something, she always explained clearly what I needed to do to put it right. Always kept me motivated when I got frustrated to keep trying if I couldn't get something right. Also was a massive help leading up to my theory test, gave me advice on the best books… Read Full Review

Passed my test on my first attempt yesterday after tuition from RED. Their online resources are very useful for improving both theory and practical skills, and my instructor was extremely helpful, supportive and friendly. We worked towards clear goals in each one of my lessons which helped me feel like I was constantly improving. His consistent support made learning to drive an enjoyable and worthwhile investment… Read Full Review

“Best Experience”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by Dean164 (1 review written)

Having a goal this summer to pass my test before I started second year of university, I was doubtful if I could finish it all in just over two months. However through the help of my instructor throughout the summer I managed to pass my test first time. He stayed calm throughout stressful times and explained all the areas of my weaknesses to help me better myself as a safe driver and I genuinely couldn't have asked for a better instructor. RED driving school has been nothing but amazing and I… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2014 by IsaiahMcLean (1 review written)

Every lesson was great. I learnt and experienced new concepts of driving and my instructor taught me a huge amount of awareness on the road such as frequently checking mirrors and doing observations. I didnt like round abouts to start with but my instructor made me practice them a lot and i eventually became comfortable with them. I liked driving on main roads as i didnt have to constantly stop and i could maintain a safe speed limit… Read Full Review

Just passed today first time after being taught by Karen, who really gets the absolute best from the student and looks and strives for perfection. What might sound intimidating really isn't, it just gets you to that place you need to be where you can go into your test and realise that, yes, you can drive exactly how they want you to and exactly how is needed to succeed. - Callum… Read Full Review

This review is something of mystery. Firstly RED has absolutely nothing to do with any business called Driving Centre UK and secondly the reviewer does not specify what terrible service he or she experienced. I have written to the reviewer directly for clarification

“Patience is a virtue!”

Written on: 03/09/2014 by RLM22 (1 review written)

My instructor in the Uxbridge area was really helpful. I had previously had 2 other instructors and had found my one with RED driving school to be the best experience. Although I was quite hard to teach, my instructor never shouted or lost his patience with me, he was really nice and would make the lessons seem less serious and more fun - which was easier to learn with! I took my first practical test with another driving school and failed, after my first attempt I felt my previous instructor… Read Full Review

Congratulations on passing your test and we are delighted it was in a RED car. As you had had two previous instructors with other schools, your assessment that our RED Instructor did a great job is even more significant. Many thanks
