“Thanks to my instructor”

Written on: 16/01/2019 by Brysonc174 (1 review written)

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

“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

“Big Relief after passing practical test”

Written on: 31/05/2018 by hfBlack73 (1 review written)

I had a very good experience with BSM and very happy with my instructor. I had many lessons before with a private instructor, wasted a huge amount and even couldn't realise my mistakes or I would say adopted bad habits and failed 3 attempts. Then I decided to change my instructor and chose BSM. Although had 3 more attempts but I am very satisfied with my learnings, at least my bad habits gone now and more confident even if I am not familiar with the routes. One more thing I would like to… Read Full Review

“Good but unprofessional”

Written on: 20/02/2018 by Crowleydt15 (1 review written)

Used BSM last minute as I'd booked my test and my instructor had let me down, so only had 4-5 lessons. The BSM instructor was late every lesson without warning. He was on his phone frequently, making personal phone calls and even a visit to a friend on one occasion, where I was made to park for 10minutes+ of my own time on double yellow lines. Dispute all faults, I did pass first time and so would recommend BSM to a friend… Read Full Review

“Really great experience”

Written on: 02/12/2016 by TGILLEN (1 review written)

I hadn't ever had a driving lesson before starting in June of this year. I have put it off for 12 years being too scared and lacking confidence. I passed, first time. My instructor was fantastic, very supportive and always willing to explain things in more than one way if I didn't get it first time. There were times when we needed to be flexible- to fit in others tests of holidays and this was never any hassle. To start with I didn't like the idea of driving- it kept me up at night. By the time… Read Full Review

“Best instructor”

Written on: 02/06/2016 by Cara449 (1 review written)

The process of learning how to drive was easy and trouble free thanks to my instructor, who was very professional, efficient, calm, patient , helpful, kind, and made me feel comfortable and calm at all times, although driving in London is not a very relaxing experience...!! He really helped me to feel confident and learn. I had not previous driving experience, so this was a crucial aspect of my learning process. I feel very grateful to him. Bsm customer service team were always kind and helpful… Read Full Review

“Gentle and sincere”

Written on: 03/12/2015 by kingkinmo (1 review written)

I must say that my instructor was really gentle, sincere and patient. he was really helpful and helped me learn through my mistakes without condemnation. I had tried another instructor from a different company but he was a mess, just took my money and disappeared. On the whole i must say that we had brilliant practice sessions, he had good teaching and training techniques. He helped me work through my learning need as i thought i needed and we dealt with them appropriately. Passing was sweet… Read Full Review

“Fun instructor, passed test second time ! ”

Written on: 08/08/2015

My BSM instructor was lovely. A nice gent. He was patient with me and I felt like I could make a mistake without him scolding me. I can get quite flustered at times but he helped me keep calm in the car. The only point I would make that could be deemed as negative, was he was too helpful. What I mean by this is that I failed my first test on my reverse manoeuvre. This was, I feel, because if the reversing started to go a bit 'off' on my lesson, ie into the kerb on a reverse round the corner… Read Full Review

“Highly recommend BSM!!!”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by FrancisPorter (1 review written)

From starting with one driving instructor I soon switched to BSM, my new instructor was a lot more friendly and helpful, he encouraged me every driving lesson with what I'd learnt and I was soon improving and much more confident on the road. The prices are fairly reasonable. I love all the information they give to help such as tracking books, show-me tell-me questions, and mock driving tests; it truly shows what stage your at and how much you've improved since day one. I've recommend my driving… Read Full Review

“Very happy indeed ☺”

Written on: 19/03/2015 by juliecaldecott (1 review written)

today I passed my driving test. And I am totally over the moon. If wasnt for the fantastic drivers working for bsm i dont think I would of done it. My driving instructor has been extremely patient with me from day 1 As I have never been a confident driver. He has built my confidence and got me through each lesson with ease. He's an absolute star. I've had previous instructors who I couldn't gel with(not with bsm) and were very impatient. That is not the case with bsm. Thank you… Read Full Review

“Passed first time!”

Written on: 27/02/2015 by mo1989 (1 review written)

I passed thanks to my BSM instructor, Adnan Munir Dar, who works primarily around the Manchester area. When I first started taking lessons, I had a two hour lesson with a chap who let me drive for all of 15 minutes and then spent the remainder talking about headrests and how to de-mist the windows. With Adnan, I drove for the full two hours in the first lesson. He was calm and knew how to tailor the lessons in order for me to pass my test. He was observant and knew which were my weak points and… Read Full Review

“Finally on the road!”

Written on: 16/09/2014

My instructor was patient and calm and encouraged me to learn from my mistakes in lessons, rather than dwelling on them. Despite failing the first time, he gave me the confidence to try again and pass at the second attempt not too long later. Thank you!… Read Full Review

“Great!!”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by AnonymousGuest369 (1 review written)

I would give 5 stars but my first instructor with BSM was not great for me, he was a bit harsh and I knew he would never help me to pass. So I rang BSM to change and they advised a guy who helped me so much , I would not be the safe driver I am today without his help. He helped me to relax and not be nervous or panic. I would recommend BSM to my friends although the first instructor they gave me let them down but apart from that I am happy with them!!… Read Full Review

“A good experience, great school, but a little pricey”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by Glennn457 (1 review written)

I would just like to firstly say a massive thank you to my instructor for getting me through my driving test 1st time. I had firstly tried with Pass n go and after around 14 hours still never got out of my street. On a recommendation I tried BSM. From the off I felt at ease With my instructor who rang me a few days before my first lesson with him for an informal chat which I thought was a nice touch.(with him I passed with in 3 months) As an older student (early 40's) I was worried I… Read Full Review

“Great! If you have the right instructor!”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by Jaylay109 (1 review written)

Started off with an overbearing Eco crazed instructor who insisted if I took it over 2000 revs he would charge me for a lessons petrol! He also stopped me in the middle of the road with his pedals which caused me far more panic than help! I asked to change to another instructor and he was 1 million times better! He got me 0 minors in my test after 10 hours of lessons! Not bad right? But the first instructor was what ruined my experience. Just so glad I asked to change instructors!… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2014 by xtWright394 (1 review written)

I have had the best driving experience with BSM. My instructor Adnan constantly showed nothing but kindness, patience & helped me to become calm & confident. He always greeted me with a smile & constantly made me feel that I had a good lesson. He was patient enough to go over the same things until I felt confident enough & got it right. He never made me feel silly or incompetent.I can't thank him enough & would recommend BSM… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/03/2014 by _Alex (1 review written)

It was my pleasure to learn driving with BSM. I studied with Adnan who is professional, friendly, and flexible instructor. iPad driving app that he used was very handy and useful. It is very easy to visualise various scenarios on the road. Adnan provided good clues to look for during maneures that definitely helped on the exam. Overall would recommend him to my friends… Read Full Review
