“Truly Awful Customer Service”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by qkCarlson442 (1 review written)

I booked some lessons for my son stressing how quickly he was planning on taking his test. After 2 weeks of chasing them the driving instructor still had not contacted us to arrange the lessons so I requested a full refund. After getting no response and chasing them again numerous times I finally received an email asking to confirm the card details so that a refund could be made. On doing this and still not receiving any refund I finally managed to contact their accounts department who assured… Read Full Review

I have been more than happy with my lesson's with my instructor. I have tried twice before with other companies but didn't feel comfortable with my instructor's. From the start my instructor made me feel comfortable, pushing me but not terrifying me as I was very nervous to start with. With histeaching and support I am nearly ready for my test.

“Top for Support”

Written on: 13/12/2013

As a new driving instructor, Drive Dynamics have been so helpful in getting my business off the ground and set up with new pupils, and it's not just with the pupil side of the business, but the everyday support and help that is needed with any new venture. I would recommend Drive Dynamics to any driving instructor new or established if they are looking to maximise pupil intake then this is the company to be with. … Read Full Review

My wife bought me some lessons in a bundle from Drive Dynamics as a birthday present as i wouldn't get off my backside and sort it out, i'm glad she did as it was such fun, i wish id done it years ago!

He made me feel at total ease with the whole driving experience and remained calm when i made mistakes and was full of sound advice, i found his lessons to be fun and found myself looking forward… Read Full Review

“Poor service after paying”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by SayItLikeItIs (1 review written)

I originally went with Drive Dynamics to find a replacement driver when I moved to another area of Edinburgh, and this instructor was perfect. After paying for the introductory £99 for the first 7 lessons (3 lesson to be reserved for when you take the test to make you stay with them). But when I moved back to London, I was put with an instructor who kept cancelling and reshuffling lessons, although taught well. Things were great until he decided to stop returning my calls or refund my 3… Read Full Review

Really pleased with [name removed] my driving instructor, I could'nt of asked for any better. Really good teaching and very friendly. Very productive lessons but had a great time at the same time. Very honest opinion on how many lessons you will need before you pass.

I would defiantly recommend [name removed] to anyone one that wants a good, friendly and honest… Read Full Review

“Great Instructor”

Written on: 27/11/2012 by Bethfitz94 (1 review written)

I was recommended my driving instructor by my friend from college. I didn't really have any confidence when I first started and was really nervous, but Wendy soon made me feel at ease. She is good at explaining all the manoeuvres and has made me feel really confident. I would recommend her to anyone, I get on with her well which makes my lesson that bit more enjoyable. She is also very flexible and manages to fit me in every week even if she's busy. And my first 10 lessons for £99 bargain!… Read Full Review

“He 'Drives' You To Succeed. (First Time Pass).”

Written on: 15/11/2012 by Jonnyxx (1 review written)

If you are in East Berkshire then try to get [name removed] as your instructor. Despite being based in Maidenhead/Slough he (literally) went out of his way to have me as a pupil in Bracknell. I was most impressed with his knowledge, patience and likeable demeanor. I really got the sense that this instructor believed in me which, of course, helped me to believe in myself. If you are serious about learning to drive then [name removed] is the perfect instructor for you. I cannot praise him highly… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2012

Forgot to add:
1. [name removed] promotes all types of driving in his lessons, not just those you are likely to come across in your test - I truly believe that this has made me a more rounded driver.
2. I only got 2 minors in my test as the preparation was so thorough.
3. He gave me a banana on the morning of my test to help keep me calm and focused. That's right, a FREE* banana!

* This may have been preferential treatment, [name removed] may not offer free banana's to all students.
