“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

“Waste of money ”

Written on: 02/01/2017 by Meadow120 (1 review written)

A whole 900 quid flushed down the toilet. They say that they can guarantee a pass in 5 days if not they'll keep training you, while the truth is you'll only get taught on the particular mistake you made within the test and that's it. Of course that's only if they even bother getting back to you, in my case my 5 days ended,and that was the last I ever heard of them. A first time driver cannot pass in 5 days, definitely not in a manual vehicle and I wish they had told me from the start… 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!!

I have done the course in London and it's not anything like u say mate! I passed 1st time after a week and theory was great as I am not great at learning stuff also I done theory 3 o clock til 5 not 20 hours and the instructor I had was great she pushed me and didn't waste time at the kerb like my instructor I had every week so I guess if u passed ur theory it's not great value but hey ho

“Complete beginner aged 29 ”

Written on: 05/12/2016 by MishaG (1 review written)

The format of the course fit in well with my needs as a complete beginner without much spare time. Even though other coursemates had more driving experience, the course was taught in a way that helped everybody. The theory in the afternoons was taught in a crystal clear and concise manner. By the end of the week I knew I wasn't quite ready for the practical test and 5day gave me good advice on how to approach things from that point. Their continued support allowed me to pass first time after… Read Full Review

“NEVER GO WITH 5DAY ”

Written on: 21/11/2016 by amanda.louise94 (1 review written)

I used 5DAY Peterborough and found it was the worst thing i have ever done. The instructor was extremely unprofessional and couldn't teach. He would just shout. You only do 4 hours a day at most of driving and everything is rushed. They expect you to know it already. My confidence has been completed destroyed by them. They treat you like your stupid and rubbish and I would say your wasting your time and money going with 5DAY. Stay away from them. I stall can't drive and now panic whenever I… Read Full Review

Would you kindly provide us with your name and address so that this can be investigated because the only records we can find relate to a course taken over a year ago and positive feedback was provided at the time.

We have now traced this reviewer, She attended one of our courses in September 2015. Whilst on the course and immediately upon completion of the course, this was her feedback: “interesting experience” on Monday, "better today” Tuesday, “Better today, not under pressure" Wednesday, “Better today, making progress” Thursday and “Yeah, ok today” on Friday!
Since completing the course, this reviewer has refused to accept further help from us.

Me my brother and sister all done the course together and it was seriously the best thing we've ever done and I wish we would have done it a lot sooner! All the instructors were so friendly and Helpful we were sad to leave at the end of the week. We all passed our theory's first time thanks to all the training we were given and then we all passed our driving tests first time which we were over the moon with. At 20, 24 and 33 we wish we would have done this years ago. Special thanks to the guys… Read Full Review

“Fantastic! ”

Written on: 09/11/2016 by Lake191 (1 review written)

Overall it was a fantastic course. I found the drivers very helpful and answered any questions I had about the course or driving in general. The theory classes are long but we'll explained giving plenty of opportunity to ask questions and take practice tests including the hazard perception part. The driving lessons are done at your own pace with the option of being pushed to go further if you want. I passed both tests on the first attempt and would definitely recommend this course. It helped… Read Full Review

“Excellent!!!”

Written on: 07/11/2016 by Holllie (1 review written)

I had an absolutely amazing time there at Norwich 5Day! I travelled from Essex to do my driving there and I can say it was so worth it!! He is such a good teacher and really put my mind at ease about the theory test! I wasn't as impressed with my driving instructor as I just felt like he wasn't letting me show my full potential and was holding his foot on the clutch not letting me get full knowledge of when I needed to take my whole foot off. I wasn't happy with my practical as when I arrived… Read Full Review
