“Amazing professionalism. ”

Written on: 03/12/2019 by VanessaWatkins (1 review written)

My first independent instructor let me down just two weeks before my test. I was totally hopeless but my BSM instructor help me make it possible within two weeks. Tha fact I like about him is his attention to detail, making notes every single thing and end of my every lesson explains how to overcome all the problems i had. Please don't go for cheap independent instructors, you will loose your money, time and confidence. The car was a big factor too, BSM car is easy to drive and comfortable… Read Full Review

“Passed first time!”

Written on: 03/12/2019 by lina.leader (1 review written)

My driving instructor was always extremely positive, helpful, and friendly. He was very accommodating and would help me with driving struggles I had even if they weren’t part of his lesson plan. His judgements were always correct, especially when it came to booking my practical test. It was very easy to contact him outside of lesson time and he was always very quick to respond. Overall, it was a really positive experience… Read Full Review

“Top marks for BSM”

Written on: 20/11/2019

Made the mistake of going for an independent instructor. My son failed several theory tests and one practical test after spending around £400 on lessons. It became apparent that all the independent guy was interested in doing was filling his diary for income and then letting my son drive his car around for and hour or two. A family member then recommended using BSM. What a night and day difference!You can select your instructor from a list of approved people from around your immediate area. It… Read Full Review

“First time pass!!!”

Written on: 20/11/2019 by josiesassqueenphillips (1 review written)

I am writing this review because of my instructor in Cardiff, he was BEYOND excellent, he’s calm, he doesn’t shout, he’s just overall a wonderful teacher. I’m actually doing pass plus just because I’m not ready to part with him yet! He made learning to drive and enjoyable experience, I suffer with terrible anxiety and he really really helped to make me feel at ease. He was so flexible and always accommodating. Thank you BSM for bringing this wonderful human being into my life!!!… Read Full Review

“First Time Pass!”

Written on: 05/11/2019 by martinmckenna (1 review written)

Really enjoyed my Lessons, The instructor was tremendous, always keeping me calm and made me feel at ease from the first minute I stepped into the car as a learner till I got out of the car after my test as a new driver. Focused on making sure I was ready for passing the test and working with me on the little things until he was sure I would pass, rather than taking the chance that I could probably scrape a pass. Delighted with the service and the value for the money that I feel I got Well… Read Full Review

“Fantastic driving instructor”

Written on: 28/10/2019 by Jaro1976 (1 review written)

Had 20 hours with my instructor in little Hulton. He was mint. Super calm, and very supportive, like a guy who really cares about his job. Went through everything with ease and made my driving lesson a doodle. Could not ask for a more supportive instructor. Just fantastic. People like him make companies like bsm better… Read Full Review

“Passed 1st time ”

Written on: 23/10/2019 by Zara.Baybee (1 review written)

I was assigned an instruction in my local area, it's a shame i cant name him because he was fantastic. I passed first time with only 1 minor!! He turned me from a scared and nervous learner to a safe and competent driver and i couldn't recommend BSM and my instructor enough - Thank you… Read Full Review

“Passed first time only 3 minors ”

Written on: 22/10/2019 by Lilmisscornwall (1 review written)

I had a man in west Cornwall as my instructor for automatic. He was a trainee when I started and qualified as an adi. He is a brilliant instructor and helped me go from a nervous wreck on my first lesson to a confident new driver. I am so grateful to him for helping me with my agoraphobia, driving gave me the confidence to beat it. He is calm and will explain techniques and manoeuvres in a way you understand using his skills well. Thank you so much to my instructor, I'll see you on the road… Read Full Review

“Excellent Driving Tuition”

Written on: 03/10/2019 by Prestontg100 (1 review written)

I would definitely recommend this driving school. My instructor was patient, understanding, flexible and friendly. I started off quite nervous but my instructor reassured me. I passed first time so that speaks for itself. Well done BSM for showing the others how it should be done. … Read Full Review

I have been struggling with building up my confidence but my instructor was so patient with me. The level of fear that I had was insane but he was there to make sure that I remain calm when driving. Many thanks to my instructor and BSM. :)… Read Full Review

“Excellent and really professional”

Written on: 03/09/2019 by BrenC (1 review written)

After taking the plunge and deciding to finally pass my driving test, the service I received exceeded my expectations. My instructor, E, was so patient, professional and excellent I do not think I would have passed first time without her. Starting off is a daunting experience and having the reassurance you are in a calm and safe pair of hands definitely helps. I have already recommended to others. Thank you so much! I am still feeling elated after passing. :)… Read Full Review

“Calm and confident”

Written on: 20/08/2019 by KylerSimpson (1 review written)

Although I had driving experience in the US and China, my friends advised me to take lessons before the practical test. Quite pleased that i did! My instructor was fabulous: he knew exactly what aspects needed to be be addressed, and he presented those components clearly with a great sense of humour. I felt calm and confident during the lessons as well as the test day. Efficient and supportive instruction. Cool car, too!… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Instructor! ”

Written on: 20/08/2019 by jasonhptan (1 review written)

I had taken the 6 hours where 4 hours were lessons and the other 2 were for the test. I admit that I have previous driving experience and needed to take the test as I could not convert my licence. I strongly recommend this lady as an instructor. She was patient and very helpful with her tips and explanation about driving in London. You won’t feel nervous or worried if you are being taught by her… Read Full Review

“I passed innit”

Written on: 20/08/2019 by pinkdocs (1 review written)

So I had this really cool instructor who was very patient with me especially when I was distracted because I found it so hard to concentrate . I was quite worried about this because getting distracted by ideas and architecture is not the best idea when you're trying to take in new information. Very nervous about learning to drive and had put it off for many, many years. It probably took me a lot longer than most to learn to drive however I passed with lots of encouragement. I had lots of… Read Full Review

“The Best Experience”

Written on: 17/07/2019 by Berry1983 (1 review written)

I booked 10 lessons 8 hours for learning 2 hours for the actual test. My intention was to space it out over a month before my test date. After my first lesson my driving instructor informed me that I could pass the test providing I paid attention to my bad habits. I was taught a lot of useful information that was essential to me passing. He also sent me a load of videos to watch on YouTube which were very helpful. After my second lesson he advised me to move my test date forward, which I did… Read Full Review

“Extremely happy with these driving lessons”

Written on: 17/07/2019 by 294Stanley (1 review written)

I started to learn at a slightly older age (late 30s) and the thought of it was quite a looming challenge. My BSM instructor was absolutely brilliant, entirely patient, and very knowledgeable. Every lesson was worthwhile, and my mistakes were met with calmness and understanding. Thank you to my BSM instructor! The lessons were paced just right, so that my theory test and practical test were taken when I was ready… Read Full Review

“Highly recommend BSM - I passed 1st time!!!! ”

Written on: 17/07/2019 by JClarkee (1 review written)

I can not recommend BSM enough especially my instructor from Southampton! I’ve had a few lessons previously with other instructors but my nerves always got the better of me, and with no motivation, reassurance or encouragement from my previous instructors I’d give up.. I really wanted to drive so my last attempt I tried BSM and I’m so glad I did .. after 5 weeks and 25 hours of driving I passed 1st time! I really never thought I’d see the day I’d be able to drive but he made me feel… Read Full Review
