“Wonderful experience and the best instructor! ”

Written on: 23/05/2019 by Firdaus_ (1 review written)

My experience with the AA really was excellent. I had asked for an instructor who would really motivate me to learn, help build up my confidence as a driver and would teach me to drive without making me take an excessive amount of lessons and I found all of that and more in my instructor, Frenchie Richardson (and I’ve had a few instructors so I definitely have something to compare with!). He demonstrated utmost professionalism, patience and integrity. I had told him that I had a month… Read Full Review

“My instructor was great, I've had a few instructors...”

Written on: 23/05/2019 by catherinemarie (1 review written)

My instructor was great, I've had a few instructors so I have something to compare him to,he worked to my test date instead of trying to push it back, squeezed in as many classes as possible at short notice to get me up to test standard, he was clearly committed to getting me to pass on the day, gave lots of teaching throughout the actual lessons, and was a very calming influence for a nervous driver! Would recommend 100%!… Read Full Review

“Excellent experience ”

Written on: 16/05/2019 by Benx171 (1 review written)

My whole experience with the AA has been excellent. I have waited 30 years to get my driving test due to a deep lack of self confidence and frayed nerves resulting from previous driving schools/instructors. I never thought that I would pass but had the good fortune to be introduced by the AA to my instructor who consistently went above and beyond the extra mile. Excellent teaching and interpersonal skills, exceptional patience, and the utmost integrity. I intend to take PassPlus as a result of… Read Full Review

“Nice instructor, Nice training”

Written on: 13/05/2019 by HeavenCooke70 (1 review written)

My first language isn't English , however, I passed the driving rest at the first time I tried. The instructor did a really good job. He let me drive as much as possible during the lessons. He gives me really nice lessons about safety driving. And encouraged me when I make some serious faults. Really good gay. The driving is full of responsibility. Their system let pupils can booking freely and top up as they want using serval method to pay. Thanks AA, thanks to my instructor… Read Full Review

“This was amazing!”

Written on: 12/05/2019 by Farah25 (1 review written)

This driving school was particularly brilliant. I loved the ease the driving instructor brought with him which was a good balance when I was filled with nerves. He went out of his way to explain concepts to me with short phrases that were easy to remember. As soon as I was stuck with a concept; i.e. roundabouts - we would continue to go back to that area until I had perfected it and felt more confident in myself. I appreciated the way he would allow me to find methods that would work personally… Read Full Review

“The best instructor”

Written on: 10/05/2019 by Natalia29 (1 review written)

I would like to thank AA driving school and especially to thank my instructor (Windsor/Staines/Ascot/Datchet area). I passed my driving test almost 2 weeks ago and this is a massive achievement for me because driving was something horrible for me and I’ve never imagined that there is a person in the world who could teach me to drive. I highly recommend my Instructor because he is extremely professional, knowledgeable, very detailed. And - very important thing - he is very patient. I was… Read Full Review

“excellent instructor and excellent customer services !”

Written on: 03/05/2019 by Coco0501 (1 review written)

I have just passed my driving test. I am really grateful for that. I enjoyed very much the lessons with my instructor -Paguin. He was always very kind, supportive and encouraging. He is very experienced. The customer services system of AA is excellent too. I had to change my instructor in the first place because my first instructor went travelling. AA found me a new one right away, which is, in my opinion, the best one. Also, AA is always very quick in picking up the phone and answer all… Read Full Review

“Excellent instructor and service. ”

Written on: 05/04/2019 by Colten340 (1 review written)

Passed first time with only 3 faults and i put this down to the excellent, professional tutorship of the instructor i was allocated. This instructor operates in the London borough of Bexley and was a thoroughly decent guy, polite, always on time and good fun to sit in a car with for a 2 hour lesson, which at first was a stressful experience whilst i was learning the basics. I already had 10 years of motorcycle commuting experience, but had developed some bad habits over the years. The… Read Full Review

“Very steady, got me through the test”

Written on: 30/03/2019 by Steelandrew (1 review written)

My instructor is from Chesterfield. From our conversations during my lessons he is clearly someone who enjoys his job and driving in general. I told him my driving experience and he organised my lessons accordingly. He picked up on my faults, praised my attributes and gave me confidence to take the test, which I passed first time. I couldn't have done it without him. … Read Full Review

“Worst driving school ever”

Written on: 27/03/2019 by MilenaMilena (1 review written)

I DO NOT recommend the AA to anyone. The instructor was rude and was criticising me all the time. I had 3 hours lesson and I was driving only for 1 hour cause he was talking rubbish for the rest 2 hours. He was boasting himself that he is the best intructor in the country. But he is the worst! He’s shown me his pupil’s files (with all the confidential information in them like full name, address etc.) and he was commenting on their mistakes in driving. He was very impatient and rude. I… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2019 by acPatton469 (1 review written)

My instructor is honestly the nicest, most calm, sincere, loyal and most positive and patient instructor ever! He was also very motivating - For all the times I wanted to give up, it was him, who let me carried on... He help me believed that I can do it, I will pass... And today, I have passed. Credit to him for being just the best instructor, anyone could ever asked for. If I could, II would have paid him more than the set cost of my driving lesson!!!! He was easy to get on with, very… Read Full Review

“Great experience and great instructor!”

Written on: 21/03/2019 by EGThayil (1 review written)

My partner and I are new to the country and needed to get UK licences. AA driving school offered a very professional student dashboard that made it easy to see your instructor’s schedule, book lessons and purchase more as needed. Our instructor Dahir (in Great Barr) was extremely good and we highly recommend him if you’d like to pass the first time round. He’s firm but very patient, kind and encouraging as well!… Read Full Review

“Patient inscrutor ”

Written on: 19/03/2019 by ReaperReapz (1 review written)

Honestly, although AA have slightly higher pricing for lessons their drivers are by far the nicest and most patient inscrutors out there. I took my first lesson with AA today and the driving instructor Rodney was really chatty and made me feel comfortable right away. As a new learner I was making slight mistakes here and there but he remained calm and helpful throughout, telling me not to worry and reassured me I was doing well. Companies need more employees like Rodney who take pride in… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/03/2019 by 70Massey (1 review written)

I just passed my test today, this was my third attempt. My driving instructor was so patient, 3 years ago I started lessons with bill plant the driving school and it was the worst experience ever. So last year I decided to try again, but with a different driving school. I chose the AA. My mum rang them up and explained that after being shouted at by the first driving instructor from bill plant that I was very anxious and nervous about being in a car again behind the wheel. The AA were so… Read Full Review
