“Truly excellent course!”

Written on: 18/07/2017 by Kayleigh1991 (1 review written)

I just completed the 5Day course in Norwich. The theory preparation was excellent and although I hadn't even looked at the Highway Code before the course, I passed the theory with flying colours. The part of the course that was really important to me was the practical test. I was matched up with a perfect instructor for my temperament. I was asked to take a quick survey before hopping in a car and this appears to have been taken completely on board. I had completed 5 hours of lessons 12 years… Read Full Review

“Leeds- Not a smooth experience”

Written on: 06/07/2017 by Sanamao (1 review written)

I went to the Leeds 5day driving course. Credit where it is due, the course prepares you really well for your driving theory test. You don't experience as much driving as you think you will for the price you pay for the course. You get about 4 hours per day. Even though I did pass first time when I eventually took my test, I think it was down to my own capabilities than anything else and here's why. The instructor I had was late on more than 1 occasion, frequently late back from lunch, and I… Read Full Review

“Top Quality Services”

Written on: 03/07/2017 by Malone232 (1 review written)

I went to the Sidcup centre, and I was a 37 yrs old male, with little to no driving experience prior to signing up with 5Day. After meeting the wonderful people there, I am now a 37 yrs old male who passed his Theory and Practical first time! Lessons started 5th June and the earliest practical test available was 21st June, using the 5Day fast track system (Booking a test otherwise will give you a six week wait at least). It is hard work, it is called an intensive course afterall, but if… Read Full Review

“Excellent experience in North London, passed first time!”

Written on: 23/06/2017 by Patrickhall84 (1 review written)

I would say that if you're a moderate to quick learner then this is definitely a course worth investing in. I chose to learn to drive using 5day because I do pick things up quickly and felt it would best suit my needs. I initially booked this course 3 days before it actually started (22/05/2017) and was accepted with no problem, all confirmations were sent via email. Turned up on the Monday and was given a quick 1 hour briefing on the course itself and then some theory. I met my instructor… Read Full Review

“Passed 2nd time!”

Written on: 19/06/2017 by Louiselabruto (1 review written)

I passed my theory first time then booked my driving test. I had booked a few lessons privately with the person I dealt with who was my driving instructor throughout the course, unfortunately I failed my test due to a silly mistake that I made, but with some FREE mentoring sessions from 5day I was able to build up my confidence again to book another test which I booked on the Thursday and got a test date for today! I am very happy to announce that I passed my driving test today! I would… Read Full Review

I completed the 5 day course and just passed today! It was the most amazing experience ever. Such lovely driving instructors and really supportive, I had never driven before and they never gave up on me and kept trying so hard to get me that pass because I just felt like I couldn't do it! I honestly never thought I would be able to do it and I did, I did my test in sale this morning, I still can't believe it, they taught me absolutly everything know and I couldn't thank them all enohgh… Read Full Review

“2nd Test Failed”

Written on: 24/04/2017 by Kellygould123 (1 review written)

My son was booked onto the 5 day course and unfortunately didn't pass he only had 4 minors but pulled out on a roundabout as another driver was indicating but then didn't turn off so he failed. He put in for another test using their fast track costing £135 and then had to wait almost a month (28/3/17 to 24/4/17) for another test date. When I rang 5 day asking if he needed further lessons as it was a long time to wait til his next test without lessons they said they would have to cancel test… Read Full Review

Dear Reviewer,

We are very sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with our service and apologise if you feel that we have contributed to the outcome of your Son's recent test. However, you have failed to mention that your Son applied for his first test on Friday 24th, March 2017 having completed the course and successfully passing his theory test. We booked his test for 2 working days later on Tuesday 28th March 2017. On that date, having been unsuccessful, he was sent information by us that explained how he could not re-sit another test for 10 working days and also giving him the option of requesting our free mentoring service, the objective of suggesting the mentoring lessons at that stage is to correct any driving faults quickly without loosing momentum and to ensure that this is done before the next test occurs.
We are sorry that your son was not successful on the 24th April 2017, please now contact this office so we can arrange for some lessons for him prior to him taking another test.

I am very dissatisfied how you think anyone can pass their test going nearly 4 weeks without any lessons is beyond me. We went from 28 March to 24 April with no support from 5day. If he had enrolled on corrective lessons he would still go weeks without support waiting for his test. He is now enrolled with a good driving school who will support him right up until his test which he has on Monday 8 May, we got this date cheaper and quicker just by checking the government site every day!

Just to let you all know 5day got my review taken off but once I proved to review centre everything I said was true they had to put it back on.

“Passed first time!”

Written on: 18/04/2017

I came onto the course having about 2 hours of experience to my name. By the end of the week I was confident I could pass the test, and with a bit of practice the following week I passed my test 1st time - 2 weeks after I'd first sat behind the wheel! The course is intense but goes by very quickly, and what you learn will be very hard to forget. Definitely recommend this course for anyone looking to quickly learn how to drive if you're willing to put in the time… Read Full Review

“Well worth the money!!”

Written on: 03/04/2017 by AmyVirdee (1 review written)

I had quite a few lessons beforehand with a terrible instructor from a DIFFERENT major driving tuition company and spent a fortune, but was still terrified of driving! I booked with 5 Day in Norwich just so that I could get it over and done with! I'd already passed my theory test but the theory lessons were still useful to attend (I got asked a question on my test about a theory matter)- Norwich was fantastic during the briefing sessions and the theory. My instructor was amazing and my passing… Read Full Review

“Need it quick”

Written on: 31/03/2017 by English352 (1 review written)

The course runs Monday to Friday then you have to book your practical yourself an pay extra which isn't something I like after paying £1000 . You'd think an extra £62 they'd include in the price. But I booked my practical on the Friday an the next available slot was Tuesday 8am I passed so it's all worth it. 5 working days an 1 hour it took me to get my licence. You legend thank you.

“Not for newbies.”

Written on: 19/02/2017 by Amyaw391 (1 review written)

I am an 'older' learner with absolutely no driving experience before this course. If this is also your case, this course is not for you. My instructor kept telling me that I needed to practice but the only practice I could have was the one I was having with him! It's a very intensive course that teaches you how to pass the tests. Requires a lot of concentration and previous experience. If at the end of the week you are not ready for your practical test, you are on your own: you must find your… Read Full Review
