“Complete nightmare Do not use!! Absolutely awful!”

Written on: 28/04/2017 by EllaWooten499 (1 review written)

Beware of the fine print of this seemingly good deal, it's not a good deal but a lie! I changed driving instructors twice, was forced to formally complain about one who was on the phone all the time, in personal calls and online shopping!!! I am paying a lot of money for this course, how dare you (nothing was done in response to my complaint)! Then (surprise surprise) i was not ready to sit a driving test at the end of the week, they were not able to offer me any further support because the… 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 a month 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 if he required corrective… Read Full Review

lol he should have looked properly the first time, that will teach him. He needs better glasses not more lessons. Could have been me on my motorbike coming on that roundabout !

Agree there my friend, car drivers are the worst for looking specially the new ones, test should be harder.

“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

“fantastic driving school ”

Written on: 07/01/2017

North London 5day team are by far the best people to teach you to drive. I tried a few different people before I used 5day team north London. The branch manger is very good at what he does and is very easy to get on with. The other guys there are great as well. I was that pleased when I passed both my test that I got the guys some alcoholic drinks and some coffee just to say thanks. Isn't much for the freedom I now have plus the pay rise I got from work. They go in to real detail and take… Read Full Review

“Excellent Value”

Written on: 03/01/2017

5Day Manchester helped me to pass both my practical and theory tests first time. Once I finished the course with my theory test being passed. I contacted my instructor and arranged for a few more lessons, after taking these extra lessons I felt confident enough to take my test. 5Day offer a great service that is suited to your needs, one thing I liked about 5Day was the learning environment, it was casual and it didn't feel like I 'had to be there'. I enjoyed the course and I am grateful for… Read Full Review

“5 day.co.uk honest experience from Birmingham branch”

Written on: 30/12/2016 by 4Delaney (1 review written)

My daughter turned 17 last month and saved up to pay the £850 fee. She had no prior experience at driving before commencing the course. However, we chose the 5day.co.uk experience due to the mostly positive reviews on this site. The day started each day at 9am with a general briefing. At 10am, my driving instructor took me driving. At 12pm, we had a 30 minute break before continuing to drive from 12.30 to 2.30pm. After another 30 minute break we spent from 3 pm to about 4.50pm learning… Read Full Review

“Waste of money very bad advertising ”

Written on: 17/12/2016 by Toddi320 (1 review written)

When I booked my 5day courses I was really excited, but when I started I spent about 20 hours on a computer doing my theory test which I have already at home, then after doing my 20 hours I got told I wasn't test ready and I need another 10 lessons which 5day don't pay for after paying the large amount of money!!! So then I have paid over £2,000 to pass my test and still no license, they give you one free correctional lesson after failing and they reply is 'well we've fixed it' after you sit… Read Full Review

What a great review.
I have been teaching learners for the last 12.5 years and this company has just become very big with som big advertising!!
Pupils and instructors are getting sucked in and getting bitten.
What seems in realistic usually is realistic. Learning to drive is a complex and hard/long process. Anyone who says it can be done it 5 days with 20 hours is off their heads!!
DVSA (people who set the tests) state around 40-50 hours!! You do the math!!

Something to do with people taking bragging rights for passing. How many people complain if they get the result they aims for?
