“Amazing instructor who I’ve already recommended ”

Written on: 19/02/2019 by Anita1234567 (1 review written)

In the past, I had gone through many instructors (6/7 in total) and felt like almost giving up again. I was then recommended my instructor from BSM who I instantly got on with. In fact, after the first lesson, I already knew I would pass which is a feeling I never felt before. He was absolutely patient with me but at the same time, pushed me to be better. He has the perfect balance. He wanted the best from me and I immediately knew it just from our interaction. He made me feel like I was good… Read Full Review

“Preparation for Practical Driving test with Gary ”

Written on: 13/02/2019 by JohannSpurling (1 review written)

I have had three 2h lessons with my instructor so far and they have all been fun, instructive, constructive, helpful and I have learnt a great deal each time. Many things my previous instructor had told me were not helpful. Just wanted to mention he is not with BSM. For example, he told me to always select first gear in car parks, which in actual fact is not logical and so this instructor taught me instead to select whichever gear suits the car park and that could be second if we have perfect… Read Full Review

“Thank you BSM! I PASSED!”

Written on: 04/02/2019 by Russell_Baker (1 review written)

I had driving lessons with 2 other driving schools a few years before learning to drive with BSM. I felt the first instructor held back and was slow to teach me as if to get more lessons out of me. The second was younger and quite unproffesional. He would lose his temper and patience whenever I made a mistake. Recently,I booked lessons with BSM. Immediately I felt that I was being taught by an experienced professional that knew all the best methods to teach new drivers how to pass their… Read Full Review

I had very bad luck with previous 2 instructors which I had. I tried to find someone who doesn’t charge a lot because I knew I will need a lots of hours of driving. Both instructors let me down on my driving test. One without warning 3 days before I book my driving test he told me retiring another one let me down for other reasons. Finally I find BSM which help Me find someone who can help go trough driving test in very short time. My instructor was very nice, and carrying about you and how… Read Full Review

I would like to say a very big thank you to my instructor who helped me to pass my driving test. He pointed out my mistakes in training sessions and also encouraged me to overcome from those. It's big boost for me and I passed my practical test with just four minors. … Read Full Review

“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

“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
