My experience with Red Driving was really good! I felt at ease with my instructor and the lessons were very informative and well set out. I've learnt a lot and I would say I'm fairly confident as a driver. Driving with Red has enabled me to pass first time and now I aim to being PassPlus!… Read Full Review

“Great experience with Red”

Written on: 26/05/2015 by mikegeary (1 review written)

I learnt to drive in the Slough area And my instructors name is Ricky. After switching instructors after 20 hours, Ricky was able to point out many flaws (that previously went unnoticed) very quickly, he was very patient and thorough with all aspect and would make sure that I completely understood my mistakes and how to rectify them. He was able to change me from a nervous, hesitant driver to being very confident within a few lessons. I would definitely recommend Red Driving School and Ricky… Read Full Review

“Shocking Customer Service”

Written on: 26/05/2015 by RachelWright119 (1 review written)

Bad experience with RED DRIVING SCHOOL. Had an eye operation last year which should have taken two weeks to recover from. However there were complications and I am having a second op next month. I paid for block lessons and have one outstanding and Red have said they wont refund this lesson as I paid for it over 6 months go. Disgraceful way to treat a 17 year old! I was told I should have read the terms and conditions emailed to me. I suggested that they should send a text message before… Read Full Review

I am sorry to hear that your daughter requires eye surgery. I hope things eventually work out for her. Regarding her driving lessons, you did indeed buy a block of lessons for her and the last lesson was taken on 23rd August 2014. You had a small balance remaining on the account but our terms and conditions are clear that such funds expire after 6 months. You were offered a credit against a future lesson as a goodwill gesture but you declined. I hope your daughter in due course is able to drive and eventually qualify for her driving license.

“RED Driving School”

Written on: 25/05/2015 by Fenn7 (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with Red Driving School in Herne Bay and my instructor's name is Brian. He is an absolutely fab instructor, very patient and kind and it was so easy to learn to drive with him! I had other instructors before who confused me when it came to the manoeuvres but Brian made everything easy to remember and I found I learned quicker! I would definitely recommend learning to drive with RED, I felt calm and comfortable and it was a relaxed atmosphere with Brian, I didn't feel… Read Full Review

“Trust your journey with RED!”

Written on: 25/05/2015 by bhavishapatel92 (1 review written)

After many lesson's I failed my practical test twice. Even after failing, I continued to make mistakes I was not aware of. My confidence dropped very low and although I had the skill to drive, I would worry about repeated failure and make new mistakes in my lessons. In order to fix this problem I contacted a new instructor- Amanant Ullah through Red Driving School; instantly I saw something unique about his teaching and his ability to identify and maker me aware of my mistakes. He had a great… Read Full Review

“"3C" Marlon J's policy!!!!!!!!! :)”

Written on: 25/05/2015 by ren-g (1 review written)

My driving instructor is the best! When I first met with Marlon J. I was quite nervous, but during the lessons I started to gain more confidence. He was supportive, patient and calm. There was 2-3 times only when he touched the break pedal :D He taught me how to drive safely and thanks to him I learned new skills as well. When I drive I think about his policy: " Be Calm, Cool and Collected". Even I'm in interesting situations like someone doesn't use any indicator and turns suddenly left, this… Read Full Review

Just passed my Driving Test first time after training with the person I dealt with of RED Driving school. He made the learning a pleasant experience and gave great support to me in my training. I needing 49 hours of training in total, this may seem like a lot, but I passed first time with only 2 minor faults. Thanks to him! I would also recommend RED in general they were very helpful and their Brain Training tool is ideal for learning to pass the theory test. … Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2015 by HamishClifford (1 review written)

I learnt with Red all the way through my driving. My driving instructor was very good, calm and relaxed, especially when I first started driving and was making lots of simple mistakes. She also knew when I needed to be pushed and when not to so I was able to improve my driving at a good rate. I would definitely recommend Red as a driving school and if you're in the Surrey area . I successfully passed on my first attempt of the test and wouldn't of been able to do it without the great help of… Read Full Review

“First Time succcess (second time around)”

Written on: 19/05/2015 by CharHam (1 review written)

After having tried and failed (5 times) ten years ago I felt it was time I tried again to learn to drive. Last time I felt I could drive but nerves always got the better of me on the day. An excellent instructor, made it much less stressful to learn this time around. I picked it up again and passed first time in just over 2 months. Lessons were available in the evenings which meant I could learn around work and he made himself flexible especially close to the test so I could fit in all the… Read Full Review

“Ria Gallagher”

Written on: 18/05/2015 by Samara171 (1 review written)

I learned to drive with Ria and passed in May 2015. Ria is always on time, prompt and professional. She is also friendly and informal so you can really relax. By the time I took my test I was confident with independent drives and with all the manoeuvres. There was no pressure to pass or no point where I felt I was doing anything 'wrong'. Ria creates a relaxed environment in which to learn and I would happily recommend her to friends… Read Full Review

“Amazing driving school”

Written on: 17/05/2015 by ShannonJamieson (1 review written)

I learnt to drive in Basingstoke with Red. After a very shakey start, I finally passed first time with about 8 months of teaching. My instructor was so supportive throughout the whole time, as I was an extremely nervous driver to begin with. There was so much support throughout, whether for the theory and the practical. Red are such a great driving school, and are actually one of the best priced around, especially when buying in bulk. The online way of booking lessons is helpful, as it means… Read Full Review

“Baj is the best!”

Written on: 17/05/2015 by mrakowski (1 review written)

Bajrang Rathore is without a doubt, not only the best driving instructor I have ever had (and trust me I've had quite a few) but he is also a true gentleman. He did absolutely everything he could to help me; nothing was too much for this guy. He is positive, full of praise, reassuring when I messed up and he gave me confidence. As it happens, I passed my test first time thanks to his expert guidance. I cannot thank him enough. There is nothing I did not like about my experience. My top tip for… Read Full Review
