“Serious school and fantastic instructor Bislim Shala ”

Written on: 15/02/2021 by jbplondon (1 review written)

I had a great learning experience thanks to my instructor: very knowledgable, focused on real driving, friendly, encouraging and very reactive: thank you! Passed at second try but was not 100% ready at first try. Cannot talk for other instructors, but in my case 100% recommendation… Read Full Review

“Overhyped and unnecessary ”

Written on: 24/10/2020 by Foleypi236 (1 review written)

I had the absolute misfortune of doing my lessons with AA driving school instructor. Not only did he shriek and shout at me consistently for minor faults but was also rude and condescending and I would feel discouraged .I do believe that this breaks a learners confidence and this is not the way to instruct a learner.In fact shouldn't a calm demeanor be a pre requisite in a driving instructor?I was pulled up for the most minor faults and broke down behind the wheel on one instance.I got no… Read Full Review

“Terrible experience ”

Written on: 24/10/2020 by PR2189 (1 review written)

I had seen good reviews about AA driving school online and hence enrolled for car driving lessons with AA. My instructor was extremely rude and gave me a horrible time . He was always in the edge and made me extremely nervous. I had to discontinue my lessons abruptly as I couldn’t focus on my driving due to this behaviour. An instructor needs to be calm and encouraging. I was so disappointed that I did not continue with AA and went for a different driving school and I have passed my driving… Read Full Review

“Great! Passed first time!”

Written on: 20/10/2020 by CatherineDarcy (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with my instructor and I passed first time! Learning in London can be daunting but he was understanding, patient, and a great teacher. He would ask me what I would like to learn each lesson and we would repeat things if I didn't feel like I had fully grasped it. His car was clean, he was professional, I felt safe in a car with him. He's flexible with his timings so I could learn before work which fitted around my schedule perfectly. Would highly recommend. Using the AA was… Read Full Review

“The Best”

Written on: 13/10/2020 by DrSanjoyGhosh (1 review written)

As we moved to UK I started practices my driving lesson with AA and got my instructor. He is the best instructor in many ways- very professional, boost the confidence in no time, moreover he has a great heart. What a pleasure to learn driving from him. Every lesson he was on time and dedicated. This improved my driving ability enormously. In terms of driving training- he always pointed out even small mistake and corrected progressively. I passed my test in the first attempt- once again he is a… Read Full Review

“The Best Driving Instructor”

Written on: 10/10/2020 by HRich9899 (1 review written)

My driving instructor was the best. He taught me well and reassured me when I had no confidence in myself. I was hesitant to learn in a manual car but he made it so much easier and actually made me enjoy learning. In addition to this he helped me pass my test and I only got 2 minor faults. I would definitely recommend my instructor to anyone looking to learn how to drive. … Read Full Review

Very good experienced instructor. Had a great time during lessons as he would teach me extensively how to do certain things and how to improve.

“Fantastic Driving Instructor”

Written on: 12/09/2020 by lucastitus (1 review written)

Despite lockdown and a long period without driving, my instructor helped me pass my manual driving test with ease. In just a few lessons I was able to start driving on the main roads. His methodological techniques, tips, and experience have helped me progress quickly and confidently. Lessons are very enjoyable and the instructor will patiently point out and help rectify any faults during the drive. My instructor's flexibility with booking lessons was also highly appreciated. The car was clean… Read Full Review

Driving instructor gave clear and simple advice on how to drive safely. Very responsive when trying to organise lessons.

“Happy US Driver”

Written on: 26/08/2020 by Clarissa211 (1 review written)

My driving instructor was fantastic. I had driven for 25 years in the US but not in the U.K. I was really worried about the narrow roads and the roundabouts! My instructor was incredibly patient and helpful. He was able to provide really practical advice that I needed to build my skills and my confidence. And his real time coaching was excellent - just the right information to enable adjustment but it micro managing and never a raised voice. I passed my test on the first try!… Read Full Review

“Fantastic driving instructor would recommend to anyone”

Written on: 24/07/2020 by Popenp254 (1 review written)

I joined my Worcester based AA driving instructor roughly 6 weeks ago after failing my test twice with 2 and 3 majors respectively with a previous instructor. I did a bit of private practice in my mother in law's car to keep myself up to some sort of standard for 2 months while the Corona virus pandemic was going on. Being a keyworker and having my 3rd test cancelled back in April I was desperate to pass my test so I could get to and from my job and house. When I started I already had plenty of… Read Full Review

“Learning instructor is exceptionally well at explaining ”

Written on: 16/06/2020 by Jazminex (1 review written)

I have done two 2hour lessons so far with my instructor and he has explained everything so well. I don’t get to go out with parents or family on a drive therefore being in the car with my instructor is my first time and have to say I am proceeding very well. He’s calm and helps a lot as well as having a laugh. Whenever I ask a question there’s no hesitation to answer. Highly recommend him… Read Full Review

“My driving instructor made driving lessons not only...”

Written on: 15/03/2020 by Talyarnewman (1 review written)

My driving instructor made driving lessons not only enjoyable and engaging, but also helped me pass my driving test first try. He focused initially on teaching me the basics of driving a manual car and practicing things like changing gears and turning on right corners, to taking me on big roundabouts and across complex junctions. He was a fantastic driving instructor and put up with a lot of attitude from me when I came driving after a long day of school, I highly recommend him and wish him… Read Full Review

“Great teacher, brought my skills to another level”

Written on: 04/03/2020 by Aliona (1 review written)

I came to this instructor after 8 months of lessons with the other instructor. At that point I could drive, but I felt completely stuck and I didn’t feel I make any progress. This instructor is a great teacher, and from our first lesson he was very focused on working on the things I wasn’t great at. He is very methodical and analytical, and he helped me to understand what I should do in different road situation and gain confidence. Another great thing about this instructor is his… Read Full Review
