“Best experience ”

Written on: 17/03/2020 by BrodieHeath379 (1 review written)

I did my driving with an instructor who was extremely patient and understanding and made me feel extremely comfortable during my lessons. She is an excellent teacher and I highly recommend her to other !! … Read Full Review

“Do not use this company!”

Written on: 17/02/2019 by TinoChap (1 review written)

This company is awful. I paid for the 10 hour bundle but did 7 hours or less. The instructor I got put with arrived 10 minutes late for every lesson and was very aggressive and unhelpful every time I made a mistake. On one instance I asked him if I was able to reschedule a lesson, I was told it would be fine and I wouldn't get charged, 3 days later £40 of credit is gone from my account. I tried to appeal to acclaim even presenting evidence (a screenshot of the texts saying I won't be charged)… Read Full Review

“Worst experience!! ”

Written on: 09/11/2017 by 176Carver (1 review written)

The instructor was horrible, she would always pick me up late and drop me off early. Always shout at me when I make a mistake, would eat her smelly lunch while I'm driving, play music in the car, use her mobile and answer phone calls. I do not recommend her at all!! Didn't get anywhere with her… Read Full Review

“The worst ever”

Written on: 02/11/2017 by ReubenUpton (1 review written)

I booked a block of ten, the so called instructor gave me an hour in busy roads with a very negative attitude, I was dropped off early and the instructor said the school will be informed that I still have eight hours and a half. When I asked the school for a refund they claimed that they have no contact with the instructor because she is self employed. I had a long dispute till I agreed to be refunded for 8 hours only, no rights, no commitment not good at all the worst school with the worst… Read Full Review

“Seemed like he had other things on mind”

Written on: 07/09/2017 by 1Cedar2 (1 review written)

Always turned up, finished early everytime,seemed preoccupied with other things, asked to do a lot of things on road I did not feel comfortable with and overall not a good teacher, seemed very volatile. When cancelled my remaining few hours because I did not wish to get back in the car I was charged and did not get a penny back… Read Full Review

“Terrible service”

Written on: 10/07/2017 by jamesharrison (1 review written)

Instructor failed to turn up to lessons and was unable to be contacted as well as rearranged or cancelled lessons last minute. Booked 8 lessons in total and he only turned up to 3 of them. This was in a 3 week period. Charged me £150 for a refund on a intensive course despite all of this. Felt like I had no real choice but to cancel due to the unprofessionalism of the instructor I had. Avoid at all costs… Read Full Review

“Inadequate instruction Guaranteed!”

Written on: 13/05/2017 by JudithMueller423 (1 review written)

My daughter was given 10 hrs driving as a gift with acclaim , which she endured plus and extra 4 hours before I started taking her out. On our first trip out it I was amazed she had no idea what mirror, signal ,manoeuvre was! These are fundimental requirements, She mentioned to her instructor I'd said about it and he's said ' maybe I should have mentioned that' but for now forget about your mirrors and concentrate on your basic driving . She was also not permitted to drive from the house and… Read Full Review

“Great instructor! ”

Written on: 09/05/2017 by AshleyRLL (1 review written)

I had my driving test recently and I passed first time after 3/4 months! My instructor was for the Barnet and Enfield area and he was so great, I enjoyed every lesson and felt very safe when I was starting the learning. He gave me many many tips about everything and helped/found a car for me. I tried other instructors previous to him and he was definitely much better then them all, great guy! Thanks … Read Full Review

“Most poor driving school ”

Written on: 20/12/2016 by JohnathonMahoney (1 review written)

I experienced most poor driving instructors at acclaim driving school. The instructor spent first 6 hours of no actual driving just talking and sitting in the car showing what dash board is and how many gears and wasting time. I hope some one will take them to court and sue this driving school and the instructors I hope pupils or beginners will read the review before taking any lessons. … Read Full Review

“Didn't show up”

Written on: 23/09/2016 by RashadPope (1 review written)

Instructor didn't bother to show up for my second lesson. When I got in contact with him he told me to call the centre to re-book as he didn't have time to do it. I didn't bother and I recommend no one else does either. There's a reason this is the only driving school with availability in the area!… Read Full Review

“Complete waste of time”

Written on: 12/08/2016

I took my lessons at first things were fine, then the excuses started as to why he couldn't be there to pick me up for lessons. Even went as far to say his wife had broke her foot! Then he told me next time I had a lesson with him he'd been so busy on intensive courses, so of course I'd realised all the texts had been excuses. I failed my test first time, and on the way home from the test centre he told me there were cancellation websites I could use to find a quicker test if I wanted to book… Read Full Review

“Absolute joke!”

Written on: 09/08/2016 by Ryland1979 (1 review written)

Upon querying we were guaranteed 1-2 lessons per week, my partner has had three so far and been told the next available is five weeks away due to being fully booked, absolutely ridiculous, complained to acclaim and they've wiped there hands with me completely, won't accept any responsibility at all, stay clear!… Read Full Review

“Terrible instructor and service”

Written on: 31/07/2016

Booked my daughters first lessons with Acclaim Coventry/Bedworth. Instructor was often late or cancelled and no plans for next lessons were made just a promise to text when available and had to be chased. We cancelled the lessons half way through and half of our money was to be refunded which took nearly 2 weeks. Acclaim don't accept liability for their driving instructors as they are self employed so I was told. They stopped responding to emails too so my advice would be not to choose Acclaim… Read Full Review

“Brilliant! Great instructor and helpful office staff!”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by McGregormh435 (1 review written)

I booked a 10 day intensive driving course with Acclaim Driving School in Leicester and passed first time! An amazing achievement considering I didn't even know what the clutch was to begin with and was incredibly nervous! This was all thanks to the fantastic driving instructor who made me feel calm on the road and helped me to remember things with catchy sayings! A fantastic teacher. There were no late starts (other than 5-10mins due to traffic) and we took things at the pace I wanted. The… Read Full Review

“DO NOT FALL INTO THE TRAP!”

Written on: 21/12/2015 by Warelf305 (1 review written)

I paid for a ten hour package, the driver arrived 20 min late the first time. The second time he just didn´t show up. I called the school back and they said he had been overbooked (HOW ON EARTH DID THAT HAPPEN?). I set another appointment two hours later, and got a call back an hour later saying he was fully booked until January(which is obvious BS, he just didn´t want to continue the lessons with me because he knew he wasn´t going to squeeze out many more hours out of me). Terrible company… Read Full Review

“Abysmal”

Written on: 13/12/2015 by esWaugh497 (1 review written)

I had been driving since I was 18 but wasn't able to take my test as I had to move to university and couldn't afford it (bad timing!). I had been a very confident driver so after graduating I was looking forward to getting back behind the wheel and getting my test finally done. My former instructor had retired by this time but he had recommended a couple of Acclaim drivers (now apparently no longer in employment) but I booked with Acclaim anyway. Within the first couple of lessons (early… Read Full Review
