“Friendly people”

Written on: 26/05/2016 by ColtAlvarez (1 review written)

At first when applying they made it easy for me by giving me a call and telling me how to contact my nearst instructor. I then booked lessons with this instructor who was very friendly and a great teacher he was very calm and made learning to drive easier. When you buy your first lot its fine because you get a discount but i would say over all its very expensive. I would say it should be priced at £20-£23 an hour rather the £29.50. The only other thing is they should allow one hour leasons… Read Full Review

“What can I say. Red has it's strengths and it's...”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by Landynh120 (1 review written)

What can I say. Red has it's strengths and it's weaknesses, first lets examine the strengths; -Red provides a thorough breakdown of all the elements of driving that need to be mastered, this is assessed every lesson and the instructor will give you pointers on what you need to work on and what your strengths are. - Online tutorials are good for the theory side of the physical driving, for example positioning at roundabouts, how to use ABS, sharing the road, etc. This will help you in your… Read Full Review

“Great instructor who got me to pass first time”

Written on: 24/05/2016 by jhart97 (1 review written)

My instructor was Amanat Ullah, a very friendly, patient and polite man. His instruction was always very clear and he had obviously tailored his lessons specifically to me, rather than just going through the motions. Most instructors would probably dread the idea of teaching a teenager but I always found he and I always left each other with smiles on our faces. I passed my first time, supposedly a rarity for someone my age, but great instruction got me there. I highly recommend Amanat and Red… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Instructor!”

Written on: 23/05/2016 by Emileny (1 review written)

I learnt driving in my home country, however I needed to take some lessons to get more confidence driving in England. I contact Red driving school, the staff was friendly however they had allocated a lazy instructor thus I requested for change. Luckily the new instructor was brilliant! His patience and teaching techniques helped me to pass my test and overall to improve my driving. Many thanks! … Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2016 by 5705 (1 review written)

As a novice driver I was nervous when I booked my lessons, but I need not have worried. He has been first class from the start, always on time and an excellent Instructor. He put me at ease straight away, I have learned so much because of his teaching. I have nothing bad to say about my experience. I have been satisfied from day one. Thank you Red and a big thank you… Read Full Review

“Unhelpful school and terrible driver”

Written on: 23/05/2016 by KelsieRobertson184 (1 review written)

For Red's £29 per hour service I expected good service. Instead the driver I was assigned to initially work with was beyond awful!! He insisted on spending over 10 hours doing left, right turns and MSM monuver and got fiercely complained if I ever asked a question even though he 'encouraged questions'. I asked Red to change him multiple times but they always said no that the 'other drivers are busy' and were rather unhelpful. For such a premium service from a big company I expected better… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/05/2016 by RaeganMalone (1 review written)

I had my driving test the last month and I passed with my first intent with my excellent, patient and awesome instructor. I was trying different schools but I could not pass. I tried in red school and I had the best explication ever. I am very grateful to take lessons in this school. In my opinion if the first time you don't feel comfortable with the first teacher change don't hesitate is your money and you decide… Read Full Review

“Passed first time with the person I dealt with in...”

Written on: 22/05/2016 by Sager5 (1 review written)

I initially booked a block of 24 hours. I was then ready to book my practical test so bought 10 more hours. Ian was always so patient and explained everything really well. He showed me great reference points for manoeuvres and reversing. I would never have passed 1st time without him so thank you! You might be able to find cheaper lessons at a different school but it's definitely worth paying that bit extra as you probably won't need to book so many hours with a good teacher! Happy customer… Read Full Review

“Great Instructor”

Written on: 21/05/2016 by aseem.agarwal (1 review written)

I had planned to give my driving test within 3 weeks of passing the theory. I booked my test even before talking to the instructor and when I told him about the dates, he was very helpful and understanding and helped arrange the lessons on time and what would be needed to make it on the date. He was very patient and was willing to explain what needed to be done. He helped me get rid of a lot of bad habits I already had (I have been driving in other countries for more than 15 years now!). I… Read Full Review

“Driving Instructor ”

Written on: 19/05/2016 by leila.vaczi (1 review written)

I was lucky enough to have had a brilliant driving instructor who guided me thoughout my whole learning experience. Her knowledge and experience enabled me to become a more confident driver and to pass my test first time. She is extremely patient and makes you feel completely at ease. The lessons were worked around what I felt I didn't feel confident in and I felt I needed to work on and her keen observations of what she felt I needed to improve, as well. I would definitely recommend her to all… Read Full Review

“A wonderful way to pass!”

Written on: 18/05/2016 by Kelsey-Frost (1 review written)

Red Driving School I was terrified of learning to drive. A someone who has had a moped for the last three years, I knew exactly what kind of damage could be done by a car diver not paying attention. My RED Driving Instructor was amazing! He was incredibly patient with me and never raised his voice at all! Sounds pretty standard right? But I have had friends who really struggled with unkind instructors, which is bananas but there we are. Both me and my sister passed first time with him! The… Read Full Review

“Highly Recommended! ”

Written on: 18/05/2016 by SimoneC-P (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the East London area. I started my lessons with him in January 2016 and I set a goal that by my 25th birthday I would have my licence! He understood how important this was for me and ensured that I would achieve this goal, which I did. He's a great guy with a lovely personality, he's patient and encouraging and has a passion for teaching. I have recommended him to a few of my friends & family, he's that good!… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/05/2016 by leahsellars (1 review written)

I learned to drive with RED Driving School, initially in the Sutton area, however once I had booked my test in Worksop, was taught up there. My instructor, was brilliant! Always made me feel comfortable, and taught me in a way that was enjoyable. He was very accommodating when I had booked my test in Worksop and immediately changed my lessons in order to ensure I was fully up to scratch with the area. I passed first time, and I would highly reccomend him!… Read Full Review
