“Passed first time!”

Written on: 19/01/2017 by harryhutch95 (1 review written)

4 months ago i took my first ever driving lesson with red and thanks to my excellent and professional driving instructor (RobertRoyle) i was able to confidently pass my test first time. In total i took 21 lessons/42 hours and the pre-paid balance system with red was extremely easy to use. (if you can, pay for large hour packages to get the best discounts). If your looking to learn to drive i highly recommend Red Driving School, and if your in the Chester area, R0bert will help you pass first… Read Full Review

“Red Driving School”

Written on: 19/01/2017 by Lukemasters (1 review written)

Passed my driving test in Huddersfield through Red driving school with my instructor. He has been brilliant throughout the months even though he's a Huddersfield Town fan. Lessons have been hands on right from the start, I was very rarely in the passenger seat even early on which is brilliant and couldn't of been happier with him as my driver. Would definitely recommend to a friend… Read Full Review

I learned to drive with RED Driving School in the Tidworth area,passing my test in Salisbury. Without his hard work,patience and attention to detail I would not have passed! We took an intensive driving course over a week and he made it such an enjoyable experience I would have absolutely no problem in recommending him for anyone thinking of taking lessons… Read Full Review

“Not happy with RED driving School”

Written on: 18/01/2017 by Njohnno (1 review written)

My son started learning to drive with red. However from day one I was not happy with the instructor or her attitude. It was a take it or leave it attitude. We tried to book lessons online on RED's website and she infomed me that she didn't us it. So we wasted 1 hour looking at her free periods and booking lessons. She then told me that lessons were only available every 2 weeks. So I said that if that was the case I would look elsewhere. She then promised to fit lessons every week.she didn't… Read Full Review

“Unable to Park”

Written on: 18/01/2017 by Reading123 (1 review written)

Why would anyone use a driving instructor who clearly is unable to park a car on his drive to aid passing traffic in Silverdale Road, Reading?? ALways parked on road when there is an empty drive....clearly doesnt have the ability to reverse park - so how on earth are they meant to teach. Time and again traffic is having to stop unecessarily to allow oncoming traffic as this numpty cant make the effort to park on their own drive. If its an advertising ploy, its worked - but has a very… Read Full Review

I realise that this is not actually a review of any lessons with us but I'd be happy to try and help. Please contact RED either by email, phone or letter with the details of the car (number plate) and we will speak to the driver. I am assuming he/she is entitled to park in this road but if the car is causing an obstruction, it might be worth simply knocking on the door and speaking to the driver?

“Passed - Thanks to a brilliant driving instructor!!”

Written on: 17/01/2017 by LiviaTempleton94 (1 review written)

I'm very happy to say I have finally passed my driving test 25 years after first starting to learn! I failed 6 tests as a teenager and after a 20-something year break from driving, recently started learning again with RED and passed "first" time!! I was very lucky to have her as an instructor and I'm not sure I could've done it without her. I liked the structure of the lessons and each skill is dealt with separately, building up over the weeks - it lets you see any areas you need to spend… Read Full Review

“Passed 2nd Time”

Written on: 16/01/2017 by tomhd1 (1 review written)

I started learning just a few days after my 17th birthday because, like most young people, I wanted to learn to drive as soon as possible. My first instructor was a woman and we got on well at first, then I started to enjoy driving less and less. She wouldn't let me do anything too advanced (like roundabouts/A roads/city driving) and she wanted to spend whole lessons doing things like hill starts and parallel parking. I began to think she was holding me back a bit and started to dread having… Read Full Review

“Need to be careful when choosing the driving instructor.”

Written on: 14/01/2017 by Victory881 (1 review written)

I would really want to say some good words about a driving instructor from RED from Northampton as he really helped me to pass my practical test from the first time. My impression about him was that he was really interested in my progress and successful result. He was also honest and precisely estimated the period of time in which I would be able to be ready for my practical test. My lessons were productive and made a complete sense for me. I would highly recommend him to everyone who is… Read Full Review

“Would Highly Recommend”

Written on: 14/01/2017 by GMRyan86 (1 review written)

I was hoping to contact RED directly to give my feedback but I've been directed to this website. I can't rate my driving instructor AW highly enough. He was very professional, friendly and remained calm throughout - there were a few hairy moments and he didn't get stressed which helped me keep calm. He was great to talk to and is a really nice guy (even though he's a Leicester fan!). I would definitely recommend him as he allows you to decide on the pace of your progression and I passed first… Read Full Review

Thank you for your review and congratulations on your first time pass. To be fair, wasn't everyone a fan of Leicester last season? I have sent you a private note so you can tell me who the Leicester fan is! Best wishes for your future driving.

Was recommended RED Driving School by a friend and I can't thank them enough. I learnt to driving in the Gloucester area. He was patient, calm and very knowledgeable, an all round top guy.

“Portsmouth red”

Written on: 12/01/2017 by Mineshkumar (1 review written)

" He Was a wonderful driving instructor, who taught me the skills I needed throughout my learning experience. I would recommend him to absolutely everyone, as he was so kind and patient with me when I made silly mistakes. Before many lessons, especially at the beginning, I was incredibly anxious, however he was reassuring when teaching me. Learning to drive was something I was really keen to do when I need to progress my carear & I am so pleased I had him to teach me such an important… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/01/2017 by .Pav. (1 review written)

I have just passed my driving test with RED and I'm extremely happy with how far I've come. I used to be very anxious and lacked in confidence when driving. My driving instructor helped me to overcome my fears and build my confidence as well as emphasise the importance of road safety. RED provided many online resources which helped me to understand different road layouts and how to deal with a variety of situations. My lessons were productive and my driving instructor made sure we… Read Full Review

“Exceptional!”

Written on: 10/01/2017 by bowejg (1 review written)

I really struggled with driving. I had ~3 different instructors and failed my test 4 times before starting lessons with Red. In under 3 weeks my driving improved immeasurable. I passed my next test with flying colours and some very generous comments from the examining instructor! Despite the higher cost, lessons were absolutely worth the investment… Read Full Review

“Very disappointed”

Written on: 10/01/2017 by ctaylor72 (1 review written)

I first contacted RED driving school back in September for lessons for my son. All three lessons got cancelled and now in January he's still not had a lesson. I've had my money refunded because now the instructor can't offer any sessions and there are no other instructors available. Five months wasted. Not happy… Read Full Review

Sorry to read of your experience. RED instructors are in great demand but this does sound excessive. We do offer a no-quibble money back guarantee though unlike some schools and I note that has been actioned for you. Best wishes for your son's lessons with which ever school he uses and I hope he is successful in due course.

Exactly the same thing has happened to myself. Paid for a 4 hour block back in September and cancellation after cancellation and I am still without a lesson. Contacted RED to organise a refund as I have now found a new (reliable) driving instructor and they are saying it is out of their control due to the instructor withdrawing the funds months ago. 85 pounds and almost 5 months wasted. Absolutely shocking way to run a business and treat paying clients!!

“He is a fantastic driving instructor! I may have not...”

Written on: 09/01/2017 by Dylanfm95 (1 review written)

He is a fantastic driving instructor! I may have not passed first time, but he took me from a novice driver to a fully qualified driver within 21 hours of driving tuition. He was very patient and calm throughout the lessons, and ensured that I had fun while learning to drive. In himself he's a very friendly individual, making sure you're relaxed. I would recommend this driving instructor to anyone! RED themselves where good to deal with, regarding payments and booking lessons. The online… Read Full Review
