“Overall a good experience”

Written on: 24/09/2016 by Alvarezgn22 (1 review written)

The first instructor I had in York was very thorough and enthusiastic. Really pushed me to be a good driver rather than just good enough to pass the test. He was perhaps at times perfectionistic in his style, but overall it was good. I then, due to moving house, had to find a different instructor - this time in Chesterfield. RED were not very good at organising this. I was matched with one instructor who could not fit me into his schedule. Another instructor I was matched with failed to turn… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2016 by Callum202 (1 review written)

I recently book with red and they gave me an instuctor who was late to his appointment twice. Plus he didn't know my area well to know where to drive me to for lesson so we waste alot of time driving around trying to find a good spot to do manoeuvres. The worst of all I book online so the company automatically put me in for 2 hours lesson. I only wanted an hour lesson as I am an experience driver. I only want to get ready for my book test. I told the driving instructor I only want an hour… Read Full Review

Thank you for your feedback. We recommend two hour lessons and our automated systems via MyRED book them accordingly. However, any customer preferring something else can of course discuss this with the Contact Centre or the instructor in advance of a lesson. You don't say if you are planning to take the test or just brushing up your skills but in any event, I wish you well with your future driving and do let us know if we can be of service.

“Great Teacher and Good Fun ”

Written on: 22/09/2016

Thanks To my instructor i passed my test on the second try. He is a good teacher and makes every lesson enjoyable. It was a relief to pass and it was only possible with  his help. Although he is a good teacher he is a Chelsea fan and he will happily let you know if his team beat yours for the entirety of the lesson, but if your not into football he is just as nice to you. Thanks Again … Read Full Review

“Red driving school in Reading”

Written on: 22/09/2016 by Vega95 (1 review written)

i would highly recommend Red Driving School. I have applied online, myinstructor had contacted me almost immediately. As I already had some experience we only went through the weak areas, and a lot of proffetional advice/tips. Not only I have passed the test, but also improved my skills which makes me confident in real driving. The pros: proffecional instructor, valuable lessons, comfortable car. Cons: price looked a bit high, however it is a worth investment, as you get best service… Read Full Review

“Fourth time lucky ”

Written on: 22/09/2016 by Lindseysilcock (1 review written)

It may have took me a year but I finally did it. Mac my driving instructor was brilliant, I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. He was flexible, reliable, understanding and most of all patient( which he needed with me). He really deserves a medal putting up with me for so long. Not only did I get the practical side but also theory test tuition and show me tell me help all included in the competitive price of my lessons.#muchlovemac… Read Full Review

“RED Driving School ”

Written on: 20/09/2016 by jeffwebb (1 review written)

I had been driving overseas for several years. On my return to the UK I needed to learn how to drive UK style and to pass the UK driving test. Instructor guided my patiently and expertly in a very pleasant and engaging way that made me feel relaxed and comfortable. After 13 hours I successfully passed my driving test with only one minor errr. Without him excellent tuition skills I would not have been able to achieve this. I highly recommend RED Driving School… Read Full Review

“ADI a challenging but rewarding job”

Written on: 19/09/2016 by PasswithPete16 (1 review written)

Formerly an Operations Manager I was forced to make changes to my career. I thought that driver instruction would be best suited to my requirements and after some deliberation I chose RED Driving School. I found their support to be supurb from the early days of practising for Part1 through to the training materials provided to help with Part 3. My instructor for Parts 2 and 3 was great, he prepared me well for the tests and provided lots of experience in how to deal with different pupils and… Read Full Review

“Passed First time”

Written on: 19/09/2016 by Rjamesb87 (1 review written)

I found it very easy to pick up the information that had been given to me and to put it into practice, I struggled with making sure that I put in my right shoulder checks when making manoeuvres and together we came up with a solution to this problem, overall I would highly recommend this service to any other learners who are looking to get the best out of the money that you will be spending… Read Full Review

“Appalling customer service”

Written on: 18/09/2016 by mazzyp (1 review written)

I cancelled a driving lesson with less than 48 hours notice as my Mum was rushed into hospital. I accept that I have to pay the charge but to add yet more stress to an already difficult time they charged me for the lesson twice so I had to phone and spend a long time on hold to get reimbursed. I have now asked TWICE for a manager to call me back for an explanation and have heard nothing. Truly appalling customer service. Very quick to take your money but very slow to rectify their shortcomings… Read Full Review

“Passed First Time”

Written on: 18/09/2016 by luke.morbin (1 review written)

Fantastic teaching from Mohammad Muflih. Clear instructions throughout, helped me build confidence, the lessons progressed with a fast pace and I was constantly pushed to achieve a higher standard of driving. Passed first time with 20 hours of learning and only 3 minors, testament to the quality delivered in those lessons. Now the proud owner of a Ford Fiesta, couldn't be more pleased!… Read Full Review

“Great learning experience and pass from the first time!”

Written on: 17/09/2016

I learnt to drive with RED in the Worcester area. I went for a one-week intensive course (20 hours) and then was continuing with a couple of hours per week and was ready for the test in less than 2 months. I passed from the first time thanks to my instructor’s exceptional teaching skills, patience and emphasis on safe driving and his professionalism. It was certainly value for money and I also enjoyed my learning experience a lot. I cannot thank RED enough!… Read Full Review

“They need to learn Customer service”

Written on: 17/09/2016 by Alleneq403 (1 review written)

Red needs to learn how to answer/make phone calls or at least reply back to emails!! The amount of phone calls I've made with no replies is unbelievable. I've got few weeks left for my driving test so was looking for a driving instructor urgently but Red Driving school disappointed me by their lack communication skills. I'm now not looking to go for Red and would definitely NOT recommend them simply cos of their poor communication. I've also checked the comments on Red's Twitter page and seems… Read Full Review

My instructor from Red driving was great. He was positive which boosted my confidence with driving. His instructions for manouvres were clear and sensible which made it easier to get the hang of. He also gave me useful tips for the roundabouts in town which were extremely helpful. Very friendly and supportive and I would highly recommend… Read Full Review

Good instructor but an arrogant ignorant piece of work, only thinks about the money and is more bothered about how things affect him. After i FAILED he completely ignored my calls and he just rinsed me for my money. Even when i knew i was owed at least two hours worth of lessons or money, if you go with RED don't go with Mr C… Read Full Review

I had a great experience learning to drive a manual car and learning to drive on British roads. My instructor from RED was very calm, patient and friendly. You need someone with these characteristics to be able to face such challenge and that is why I totally recommend the instructors at RED Driving School. I passed and my instructor was congratulated by my examiner… Read Full Review
