“Great all round”

Written on: 13/09/2014 by IsaiHurley321 (1 review written)

Overview An absolute beginner upon starting the 5Day Norwich course, the first day was fantastic; I felt I made great progress. However, by day 3 my self-confidence had started to waiver as I noticed how low I was being marked on the progress sheet compared to my coursemates. I put it down to lack of experience but it was quite disheartening to reach day 4 with such low progress scores. The staff were really friendly wand listened to my concerns and the next day (day 5) offered to switch my… Read Full Review

“Cant Do Better Than Pass First Time”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by blaablaablackship (1 review written)

Really professional and friendly environment, the theory guy was really switched on, and very chilled. Just what I was after. My tutor was excellent. His name was, incredibly nice man, and went through everything with me, in a very calming and informative manner. Would definitely recommend. I went to the Sale Branch, and the people there are great. Well thought out and well implemented system. the day is broken up nicely, with plenty of time for smoke breaks if needed. The tutors are well… Read Full Review

“Good”

Written on: 08/09/2014 by Sophie1101 (1 review written)

The driving course was great for me because I wasn't learning well when I was doing an hour a week. I really enjoyed all aspects of the course and met some great people. The only thing I knocked a star off is because I didn't pass my test the first time I had to hire a car which including my test cost me £150. That's the only thing I can fault them on… Read Full Review

“The best driving course out there, forget lessons. Do...”

Written on: 08/09/2014 by Nikkifer (1 review written)

What a fantastic week, this has to be the best, most professional and easiest way of getting your licence. My instructor was brilliant very patient and even put up with me getting all stressy. He constantly gave me great feedback and would always ensure I knew his faith in me. The best parts of the course was parking and the theory tutor, I was rubbish at parking before this course but my instructor taught me very well and made everything easy to understand. I have had lessons with other… Read Full Review

“All passed first time ”

Written on: 07/09/2014 by 59Garza (1 review written)

I went onto the 5day course, having never been behind the wheel of a car before. It's was amazing ! Withing 5 days my instructor had got me to a good standard and I was able to go in for my test. Considering the limited time frame I managed to pass both theory and practical first time ! From beginner to licenced to drive in a week ! What more could I have asked for ! Highly recommend this to everyone I possibly can. Worked a treat for me !… Read Full Review

“Very quick way to pass!”

Written on: 01/09/2014 by daCollier82 (1 review written)

Would advise having a lesson or two before beginning the course so you can make the most out of the great services. Instructors are great and 5day try to tailor the teaching to your needs, would definitely recommend! The theory lessons helped me pass first time with virtually no independent revision and by putting in hard work in the practical lessons I managed to pass my practical first time!… Read Full Review

“Not for beginners”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by zLondonz (1 review written)

I did the 5day course at the South London branch in August, prior to this I had no driving experience. I'm writing this review because I really wish I'd known more about it beforehand. The positives of the course are; - 20 hours of driving lessons in one week - Good detailed driving lectures - Excellent preparation for theory test The negatives are; - You are stuck with one instructor all week. My instructor was fine and I didn't feel that he warranted a complaint but I wouldn't have… Read Full Review

“Customer Services Laughed and Mocked Me. Still not...”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by rekhagarton (1 review written)

Customer Services Mocked me on top of not dealing with my complaint or even helping my issue. I would not recommend 5Day, ever. My driving instructor was slow, taught me to coast round corners even after I explained it felt unsafe and have been assured since then you should not coast around corners. He told me I was not ready for my test at the end of the week and I was not offered any support afterwards. The people in the centre were nice and helpful but there was only so much they could… Read Full Review

Paulatkinson's Response to rekhagarton's Review

Written on: 26/08/2014

We are sorry that this consumer has concluded that Customer Services mocked her. Having listened to the telephone call, we tried calmly and concisely to advise the options available and certainly did not mock or laugh at the complaint.

There is an accusation that the Instructor taught to coast around corners which we strongly deny, none of our Instructors teach this.

We did not stop responding to emails, the last communication was on the 23rd June 2014 which was responded to within 24 hours. No contact has been made since then until a telephone call today. (So far, although we have requested a copy of the correspondence that we have apparently not responded to, nothing has been forthcoming!)

There is further support for this pupil once they choose to take advantage of our services.

I would like a recording of this phone call so I can share the fact that I was mocked and laughed at.

I received no reply and of course have not forwarded it after the 'support' I received.

I have a feeling this is the man I spoke to unfortunately.

I would love to know what options I have to take advantage of the services I have paid for. Thank you!

“worked for me”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by jonny222 (1 review written)

It is amazing the progress that can be made in just 16 hours of tuition. This means the value for money is high. The instructor i had who was contracted to 5 day was better than any i have had before. I believe in the product and that intensive driving courses suit most people however out of the people who did the course last week a large minority didn't reach the required standard within a week and are probably now having to pay for extra lessons. So my view is that this course takes you to… Read Full Review

“Definitely worth it!!”

Written on: 28/07/2014

I started my course with next to no experience driving a car and in 5 days I had gained enough knowledge and confidence which led me to pass my theory and practical first time! So pleased with myself. 5day was absolutely brilliant, and my instructor was amazing. Thank you!!… Read Full Review

However for some who are a absolute beginner is it the wrong course to do. You only get 20 hours within that 5 day. If you want more lesson you will have to pay £25 phr. When you book your test and fail you get correction lessons, however your correction lessons are only for your major faults, they will not go through general driving or or any other manoeuvres. This will mean you have to pay for more lessons. It just another way for get more money from you. Don't be fooled by all these great reviews.

“5Day = 5 * training!”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by LyRusty13 (1 review written)

Before starting my course with 5Day I had literally driven for 15 minutes around a very quiet village. My instructor was very patient and within a couple of sessions I felt much more at ease behind the wheel. He pushed me when I needed it but without making me feel pressured or rushed, and did a good job of keeping me calm when things did go a little wrong. The theory training was extremely thorough and I'm very pleased with my understanding of the highway code and how to put it to use on the… Read Full Review

“BEST DRIVING TUITION EVER.”

Written on: 07/07/2014 by Alex1991 (1 review written)

First off I would like to thank the two people who were at 5day Norwich, first the manager who gave the best and most comprehensive teaching for me to complete my theory test with ease and to Roy my instructor who was by far the best kind of person to receive tuition from, both really pushed the boat out and pushed me to get to my goal. I personally recommend 5day for intensive courses and if your lucky to be at the Norwich test centre you will see the best service they have to offer. I… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/07/2014 by KimberlyMyhill (1 review written)

I would recommend this course even if you're not in a hurry to get your license, they really know their stuff. The theory training is fantastic and the intensive practical training suited me, but my instructor was brilliant too. The training manager makes everything so comfortable you know you can go him with a question or ask for help. I met some great people who I have kept in touch with and enjoyed every minute of it. And I even managed to pass first time!! … Read Full Review

“5day is the best way”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by holsy7 (1 review written)

Having everything bundled together in 1 week made sense for myself. I work full time and didn't want my spare time taken up with the odd lesson here and there. I was a bit dubious as to how you can learn in just a week bit any worries I had dismissed after day 1. Great course and I was lucky to have a top notch instructor. Course is well laid out and easy to understand and I passed both tests 1st time. Anyone looking to start driving, make sure you look at 5 day… Read Full Review
