“Great driving school with a great driving instructor ”

Written on: 06/12/2018 by Ivan432 (1 review written)

I had a great time with my driving instructor whose driving instructions made me the driver I always wanted to be. His instructions were professional, very useful and to the point. Although I have been driving since 2000 (in a different country, though), the driving lessons that my instructor provided made me a more confident and positive driver. Without his invaluable support and professional driving instructions, I would not have passed my practical driving test. Thanks BSM, thanks to my… Read Full Review

“After a 10 year learning to drive hiatus BSM helped me...”

Written on: 14/11/2018 by FleurFine (1 review written)

10 years ago I did about 40 hours of lessons and failed my practical - due to life getting in the way I forgot all about learning to drive. I moved to Brighton and organised lessons with BSM, my instructor who I would love to name because he was brilliant really helped me feel like a better driver than I did all those years ago! All of my lessons were excellent, my instructor was punctual, really knowledgable and even when I had a few weeks where I felt like I wasn't making progress found ways… Read Full Review

“Great Journey From Start To Finish ”

Written on: 10/11/2018 by Richestrichard (1 review written)

When I first sat in the driving seat I felt clueless and overwhelmed, but by the end of my first lesson my confidence was already starting to build as my Instructor was calm and supportive and had explained to me realistically the journey in front of me. Every lesson I always came away feeling I had progressed and he always taught me something new, he is all about safety and now I have passed my test I can still hear him prompting me, always being aware of my safety and others. I really came… Read Full Review

“Errol Whyte - best instructor in SW London! ”

Written on: 05/11/2018

I cannot recommend Errol enough! He is an experienced, patient and dedicated instructor. Even when I didn’t believe in myself he did and helped me eventually pass! I have had a string of bad instructors so can honestly say Errol is top of the class!… Read Full Review

“Learning to drive with BSM”

Written on: 04/11/2018 by Effs (1 review written)

I had two practicals with bsm- I trained in automatic and decided it was not for me. The automatic driving instructor was very efficient. Me being me I decided to book my lessons two and a half weeks before my practical- the instructors taught me all I needed to know the manoeuvres everything - I failed the test based on my reaction at a roundabout- however the instructors was perfect. Manual lessons My instructor in the manual car was just as good. He was knowledgeable and knew what he was… Read Full Review

“Leamington Spa Driving Instructor was great!”

Written on: 01/11/2018 by Liannedbbbd (1 review written)

My son had a fantastic instructor - patient, good at explaining how to do things, always prompt arriving (often early) and great at putting my son at ease. I also liked the reminders that were sent about lesson times/dates. My son only started driving in March and has now passed his driving test in October which I think is absolutely amazing and shows how good an instructor he is. I would highly recommend this instructor and my son will be taking the Pass Plus lessons with him as a follow on… Read Full Review

“Poor driving instructor ”

Written on: 22/10/2018 by MaximJones (1 review written)

I'm writing on behalf of my girlfriend who (bless her) is too shy to speak out about the issues she has faced dealing with her instructor, I wont name him on here out decency (ironically considering). On at least five occasions she's had calls/texts from him saying that he is too sick to do the arranged lesson at the time that lesson was supposed to start. Absolutely no notice given. As well as this, there has been too many times where he has called up to state (not ask) that he will be… Read Full Review

Hi, we'd like to address this and feed it back to the instructor. If your Girlfriend hasn't spoken with our Customer Service about these issues so that they can help maybe arrange another instructor, please contact us via our website 'contact us' page and we'll have this looked in to ASAP. Thank you.

“I had previous driving experience and therefore knew...”

Written on: 22/10/2018 by StevenWeihe (1 review written)

I had previous driving experience and therefore knew already a bit, but needed refreshing and built up confidence. My Instructor was simply brilliant, he tailored the lessons to my needs and made me really comfortable by talking me through what we are doing and basically planning the lessons together with me, rather than tell me what to do. He was always on time and approachable. Many thanks to my instructor, I couldn't have done it without you… Read Full Review

“Finally passed!!”

Written on: 04/10/2018 by Becklaj (1 review written)

This is the third driving school I have used. After taking lessons off and on for over 11 years, it was crucial that I passed as I found out I was expecting a child. I was booked in initially for 6 hours, and was met by my instructor I explained my situation and the need to pass the test within a limited time frame. My instructor treated me with respect and never spoke down or belittled me (an experience I had with previous schools) Within 10 double lessons, I passed my test and the… Read Full Review

I’ve been learning with BSM since June with my Instructor. He was always very calm and very knowledgable. I felt calm and relaxed at all times and he always kept me smiling with our chats :).

Failed with a previous instructor. So swapped to BSM. Had an instructor based in the Gloucestershire Area and he was great. Very patient and kind.

“Knowledgeable instructor”

Written on: 18/09/2018 by Parker_ (1 review written)

I learnt with the person I dealt with in the Cheetham area and he was a great instructor. He sets the standard high which means his pupils are all more than capable of passing, a friendly demeanour and genuine passion for teaching. He prepares you for your test by making you understand the key things they are looking for. It's not about perfection, it's demonstrating competent, safe driving and an understanding for the rules of the road. I failed when I was much younger and had left it a… Read Full Review

I had 2 different instructor with BSM. For timetable issues, I changed instructors halfway through. My second instructor has been incredibly amazing. From day 1, he set deadline as towards when to take my test. He encouraged me and motivated me a lot. Very professional, incredibly patient, and very knowledgeable.

I passed my test thanks to him, and I am extremely thankful for all the hours of learning, and a laugh or two too. defibately would… Read Full Review

“Best Instructor”

Written on: 31/08/2018 by vaBenton25 (1 review written)

Hi! I started learning with another driving centre and the instructors there were very harsh and not clear about what they were teaching. I almost had lost my confidence. Then I called BSM and booked my lessons and to my delight I got the best instructor who was so patient and restored the confidence in me and I passed with “zero” faults. I strongly recommed this instructor in Haywards Heath as the best instructor and of course BSM for their excellent service… Read Full Review
