“Complete disappointment ”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by rpDawson135 (1 review written)

My experience with red has been terrible. They're whole operating system is flawed, as they are incompetent of sorting out an available instructor and contact you with the relevant details. Both of my instructors from red have been both unpleasant and unprofessional throughout, and I am changing to a different driving school. I would not recommend red at all… Read Full Review

“Quick, Reliable, Professional”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by Nevaeh272 (1 review written)

Based on my experience and my training session, I like to keep it clean and tidy, I will put it like this: - Booking: Fast, easy, friendly. - Additional Information: Provided from RED driving school. Good revising material before the exam. - Instructor: Perfect, makes you practice more and corrects you during the practice. Short instructions to remember. - Availability: This is an important factor as you may need more classes in short time to get the best out of your training and pass… Read Full Review

“Excellent Driving instructor”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by Yasmin_H (1 review written)

I have had the pleasure of being taught by one of the best driving instructors at Red Driving School. my instructor (Croydon and surrounding area) was very reliable and has several years of experience with all sorts of learners, she has done a great job preparing me for my driving test and safer driving in life. I passed first time, it is money spent well and she is worth her weight in gold, no fuss and every lesson we have reflection session 5 mins to discuss what went wrong and how things… Read Full Review

“Absolute disgrace ”

Written on: 30/07/2014

I was learning with red for a few years having start and stop learning. My instructor stopped answering her phone and messages from me all of a sudden. Red call centre couldn't care less, all they see is the money. When I asked for help finding a new instructor they were quick to tell me that it probably won't happy and have to pay a huge sum of money, when I didn't even have a guaranteed instructor.. Now while all this was going on I actually had my test booked and with a month to go still no… Read Full Review

“Best Instructor ever!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by adammcgee95 (1 review written)

Passed my driving test yesterday, First time, with only 3 minors. Can only say this is due to having the best instructor in chingford! started off with red and got a terrible instructor who was difficult to communicate with, i requested a transfer and im glad i did, Red gave me Martin who i should say is the best instructor there is. By the end of my lessons Martin had taught me everything and i felt confident with every aspect of my driving. The fact that when i come out of my exam with 3… Read Full Review

“Passed my test today on second attempt!”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Michaeljack2 (1 review written)

Really impressed and pleased with the instruction I received from Darrin Wells In Lincolnshire. As someone that was quite nervous initially it was brilliant to have an instructor so patient and encouraging. After failing my first test on a difficult hill start Darrin made sure my confidence wasn't knocked and made sure I was prepared for my next test. Also found red's online features really helpful and easy to use, which made the whole experience great. Would recommend Darrin and red to anyone!… Read Full Review

“Instructor no show”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by Duncan238 (1 review written)

I booked a lesson via red driving school and the instructor then rang to reschedule, however he was a no show. When contacting the instructor his excuse was red driving school had cancelled my lesson as he could not travel to where I lived. Red driving school did not inform me of this and if he couldn't travel to me then why did he reschedule, extremely bad service would not recommend going with red driving school !… Read Full Review

“My driving experience with RED Oxford ”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by SophieDanielle515 (1 review written)

I took my test when I was 17 and failed, I then went away to University and put driving on hold. After years of putting it off I got back into the driving seat and booked lessons with RED in Oxford. It was very easy to book my first lesson online with RED and I was given an instructor almost immediately. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. She was a brilliant instructor as she is a very warm and friendly person who could always make me feel calm in the car. I passed my test today… Read Full Review

“Learn to drive confidently and competently with Red”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by Blickmastergeneral (1 review written)

I learnt to drive in the Bexleyheath/Belvedere area with Red Driving School, and my instructor's name is Roger Wall. I can honestly say I would recommend Roger if you want to pass confidently and competently in a manner that leaves no doubt about your ability to tackle driving after passing your test. During lessons, his direction was clear and any issues with my driving were dealt with step by step and then ironed out. Communication between lessons was spot on, he was easy to get hold of and… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Driving Instructor”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by TomMcDB (1 review written)

I learned to drive with RED Driving School, in the Norwich area, and after cancellations from previous instructors and some hassle, I was finally given James Lowry-Bartram as my instructor, who was extremely helpful and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed all my lessons with James. Each lesson was well planned and I always learnt something new, they were reasonably priced as well! so I would definitely reccomend James to anyone looking for a considerate, friendly and affordable Driving Instructor… Read Full Review

“Exceptional Ruth”

Written on: 16/07/2014 by MiroRalston (1 review written)

I recently passed my driving test, at the first time of asking, in Anniesland, Glasgow. I cannot speak highly enough of my instructor, without whom the process would have taken years! Most (hopefully all) driving instructors out there know how to teach someone how to drive, or at the very least how to pass the test. What she offers is the confidence and attentiveness necessary not only to pass the test with ease, but to become a safe driver. Her ability to make you feel comfortable would… Read Full Review

I enrolled with Red to get my UK driving license. I'm somebody with previous driving experience from outside the country. I met with my instructor to discuss my options & i chose the intensive package. my instructor did not assume anything & showed me all the ropes about driving. this was very useful in improving my driving skills & in in helping me to pass the test. for the lessons i was given the option of being picked up from home or a place of my choice. a very good school Red is & would… Read Full Review
