“Although there was sometimes difficulties with...”

Written on: 25/10/2012 by yoyo3131 (1 review written)

Although there was sometimes difficulties with arranging times, Jayne was very patient in teaching and never got agitated in anything that I may have done wrong. She was willing to pick me up from both my school in Harrogate and my home in Leeds. She was able to teach me skills during bad weather conditions and have lessons at night, creating a sense of 'realistic driving' once I had passed my test… Read Full Review

“My review on Jayne Sorrell”

Written on: 25/10/2012 by Monkfish10 (1 review written)

I first started driving back in 2008 and had gone through two different driving instructors and had failed my practical test twice. To be more precise I hadn't touched a wheel from 2008 until I contacted Jayne in late September 2012 after she was recommended to me by my brother. I was desperate to pass since I was to go travelling in November. Jayne assured that she could get me to test standard within the time constraint. Sure enough, the driving skills I had learnt previously came back to me… Read Full Review

“They come across as friendly but just want your money”

Written on: 20/09/2012

my instructor did not turn up on more than one occasion. he then promised me that I would get a free lessons for the inconvenience which never happened. on the day of my test he didn't show so i called the office to complain and they replied saying that they were going to call him and call me back. 30 mins later no call or instructor so I called ignition driving schools office again where they tried to say that it wasn't their problem and I should keep trying the instructor direct and again… Read Full Review

Thank you for your comment. We do take these issues very seriously and have now dismissed the instructor in question.

Please understand that all driving instructors are self employed and we needed written proof from yourself for us to take the matter further. With your evidence we are currently chasing your refund through the legal system.

We are incredibly sorry that you have had this experience and we hope to have your refund soon.

I'm a driving instructor for Ignition. I apprieciate you had a bad experience with one of the instructor's but that does not make all of us driving instructor's like that. I'm personally alway's on~time for all of my pupil's and I also send them a text message the day before their lesson to remind them. I'm certainly not 'just after their money'. My lesson's often go over the 1 hour (and I do not spend this time just talking). I have an excellent pass rate and I regularly get other pupil's from recommendation's. I've been an instructor for almost 6 year's and i've been with Igniton for almost a year now. I've found Ignition to be an excellent company to work with and they are keen to help me at anytime of day. Ignition also send out voucher's to pupil's who recommend their friend's or family. How many other driving school's do that ? Robert.

“I was extremely reluctant to learn to drive but Jayne,...”

Written on: 07/09/2012

I was extremely reluctant to learn to drive but Jayne, my instructor immediately made me feel safe and capable. There was a really friendly atmosphere and no shouting when I made mistakes! With each lesson I grew in confidence, becoming more comfortable in asking questions and knowing what to do. Instructions were always clear and lessons were conducted at my own pace which I feel is especially important for those that are wary! Although I was made aware of areas I needed to improve I never… Read Full Review

“Jayne Sorrell from Ignition: review”

Written on: 14/08/2012 by fraser.al.morris (1 review written)

Upon turning 17, I was advised by a member of family to contact Jayne Sorrell from Ignition to begin my driving lessons. I am very happy I did so as Jayne was brilliant. Being very eager but also very nervous to sit behind the steering wheel for the first time, Jayne's very relaxed approach made the daunting experience considerably easier. She was very reassuring and (rightfully) insisted that with time I would be able to drive confidently and safely despite my great anxieties about roundabouts… Read Full Review

“Great driving experience”

Written on: 14/08/2012

I went with Ignition driving school following a recommendation from a friend, who specifically recommended Mark Cooper. I got in touch and he was able to fit me in straight away. The prices were really reasonable and he got me driving on my first lesson which I liked. I always felt comfortable and never felt rushed, but also felt like we progressed quickly. Even though I failed first time, Mark was really supportive and helped me re book and regain confidence for my next test… Read Full Review

“Awesome driving instructor!!”

Written on: 11/08/2012 by cassies95 (1 review written)

I decided to go with Jayne (Harrogate & Leeds)due to her fantastic reviews and testimonies. She was super friendly, and catered every lesson to your needs. I had such fun learning with her, and she taught me to be a good driver. She built up my confidence really well and helped me focus on the things I was most unsure of so that when they did appear in my test I could do them without hesitation. I managed to pass my test with 16 hours of lessons (on average an hour a week) with only 3 minors in… Read Full Review

“friendly! fantastic! brilliant!”

Written on: 07/08/2012 by tiaandtaz (1 review written)

Being in my late thirties, I never thought I would have the confidence to learn to drive...after trying to learn to drive with two other instructors, I came across Chris. From the outset he was patient, calming and filled me with the confidence to get on with the job in hand. He has a good sense of humour and never gets cross when you make a mistake...his instruction is clear and precise and easy to follow and after only 17 lessons I managed to pass my test first time with only 3 minor… Read Full Review

“Friendly, competent instructors.”

Written on: 03/08/2012 by PollyClareBoon (1 review written)

I needed a few lessons to get me up to test standard, having done extensive private practice. Dennis took me out in my own car, and quickly assessed what my weaknesses were. He stopped me from worrying about the test, as I had been, and targeted the things I needed to know - no time was wasted on teaching me things I could already do, as I had found with a previous instructor. Jim, who took me out for my test, was equally helpful, spending the hour beforehand going over the things he could tell… Read Full Review

“A great school to learn with”

Written on: 15/05/2012 by Markxtra (0 reviews written)

Learning to drive with (name removed) was a great experience, he was very helpful and was always on the end of the phone if I had any questions or doubts. He always tried to work around my work comments where possible. His instruction enabled me to pass both my theory and practical tests first time in just over 2 months. I am now doing the pass plus course with him which I am finding very useful and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks… Read Full Review
