“Great Instructor in South East London”

Written on: 31/08/2015 by SachaLS (1 review written)

Mr Gamini (Padukkage Ananda Gamini Kulasena) was a great instructor. Very patient and friendly. I was not a complete beginner on the roads but first in the UK. I didn't have much time available for my lessons so he made use of our time wisely focussing more on the bits I had to improve, which really helped. I've passed my test first time with only 1 minor mistake. The examiner was impressed and I was ultra happy. Recommend… Read Full Review

“many thanks”

Written on: 30/08/2015 by JasminSweeney434 (1 review written)

i want to thank my instructor JW for his valuable advices. I am a driver in EU for 20 years but i wanted some lessons to understand the UK way of driving (everything opposite for me). My instructor explained me in just 10 lessons many interesting and meaningful issues. He was also too friendly discussing for many things in UK. I want just to say a big thank you. I will suggest your school to me colleagues… Read Full Review

“Excellent instructor in Ascot!”

Written on: 29/08/2015 by AKV03 (1 review written)

Passed my test first time! Had a great driving instructor, she was very friendly, patient and encouraging! The lessons were always well organised and constructive.She explained all the manoeuvres in a clear and simple way to help me remember them for my test. Also, at the end of each lesson we would discuss my driving which helped me evaluate on the mistakes I made. A great instructor and a great company, I would definitely recommend them… Read Full Review

“Aggressive & angry driving instructor”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by SantoshDas (2 reviews written)

My driving instructor was aggressive & used to literally shout & become angry which was not only unprofessional but very impolite. I failed twice because of him. Once in Leicester & the other in Loughborough. He charged me £27 for Loughborough but he did not even know the roads there. I failed because I did not practice on the difficult roads. Once I had a 2 hour lesson with him in Leicester but he charged me for Loughborough. I did not object as I was desperate to pass. He was only after… Read Full Review

I was sorry to read your comments and to hear that you twice failed your test. That must be very disappointing. It was of course always possible to request a change of instructor and we would have been happy to organise that for you. If you would like to give feedback on your instructor, please contact Customer Services at RED and we will be sure to speak to him. Pleased that you eventually passed. Best wishes for your future driving.

“Great driving instructor ”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by matthodder78 (1 review written)

I booked a 20 hours of driving with RED driving school in Bristol and chose a man as the instructor initially due to availability. Turned out to be a good choice as he was always friendly and courteous and made the lessons fun. The lessons were always planned and full 2 hour lessons. After the initial few lessons we set out a plan and focused on my weak areas so I could progress to independent driving towards the end. Under his tutelage I passed my test first time with no minor faults at all!… Read Full Review

“Refreshing Refresher Lessons...”

Written on: 25/08/2015

Having passed my driving test in 2010, I hadn't driven since passing my test. As I'm saving to purchase my first car, I thought it would be beneficial to get behind the wheel again to gain confidence and become proficient in the driving seat again. I invested in 4 x 2 hour lessons with my instructor. I can't fault him, as he was incredibly patient and was extremely helpful when I wanted to address some concerns when driving. Although the review doesn't wish you to name individuals, I only… Read Full Review

And I must give my big thanks to my Red Driving School instructor: Mik Millington ! He really knows how to teach and how to make it right!

“Passed my test!!”

Written on: 24/08/2015 by Frederick95 (1 review written)

Passed my driving test today in Redditch second time but with the first test with a different driving school and being in Kings Heath. After failing the first time, I decided to change to Red driving school. Know this is long but stick with it because this is the reason why you should choose red driving school and why by initials you should ask for RN to teach you. They are in my opinion the best driving school in the world!! No arguments!! Staff are so helpful and never disagree with anything… Read Full Review

“Great tuition, would definitely recommend! ”

Written on: 24/08/2015 by FCC223 (1 review written)

After 3 previous instructors with different companies, I finally found Anila(based in South Shields and surrounding areas). As a nervous driver, she was just fantastic and knew exactly how to build my confidence whilst covering everything else that needed to be taught. I couldn't praise her tuition enough and would highly recommend her to anyone!… Read Full Review

“RED driving school are brilliant”

Written on: 22/08/2015 by laurasheridan1 (1 review written)

Overall my experience with my instructor was great, she is an excellent teacher with a good sense of humour. I have had another driving instructor who worked privatley and in comparison the standard with RED driving school was so much better. You get a progress record and lesson planner booklet to make sure all of your lessons are organized and to make sure you have covered all areas before the test. She always made me feel very comfortable and encouraged me to love driving. For me personally I… Read Full Review

My instructor in the Portsmouth area was able to give me lessons on Sundays, he was so calm, friendly and positive - I would thoroughly recommend him. He always went the extra mile to make sure I understood what I was doing. He prepared for lessons and was just such a pleasure to learn with. He always managed to fit lessons in with my limited availability… Read Full Review

“I have just passed my driving test with Red in...”

Written on: 19/08/2015

I have just passed my driving test with Red in Bournemouth and I had a lady as my instructor. One word sums her up Fabulous. Always turns up on time or earlier. Can adjust your lessons to suite you and will always send reminders the night before your lesson. Every driving lesson was made fun in one way or another. She is a kind and friendly lady who is very good motivator to allow you to pass your test first time. Thank you to her!… Read Full Review
