“FIRST TIME PASS”

Written on: 03/12/2018

Let me start by saying I was a very very nerveous starter. My instructors name is Ceci Streets, Ashford Surrey. She was the best. She made such great efforts with me and within 30 hours she got me ready for my test. I couldnt have thanked her more considering I was nerveous to even start. I was surprised that I passed in the First Go. Ceci was always sure and said that you will. I am forever grateful to her. She is very knowledgable, calm and assuring instructor and anyone who gets training by… Read Full Review

“Amazing Teaching!!!”

Written on: 20/11/2018

Thanks to my wonderful instructor Rana, I have passed my test first try! He is hands down the best instructor on the planet!!! Always gave clear instructions and made me feel comfortable right from the start. Not once did he make me feel useless on the wheel or ever shout. Lessons have been a great laugh and truly the highlight of my year. I recommend him to absolutely ANYONE who wants to pass well. If your instructor isn’t cutting it then don’t waste time and choose Rana. I hope he’s… Read Full Review

“First time pass thank you ”

Written on: 25/10/2018 by Ferdiaa (1 review written)

I honestly would highly recommend the AA driving school what a great service and great value for money with very friendly staff  at costumer services was ever so helpful, and most importantly I had the best instructor ever!! What a great man very friendly made me feel like I was part of he’s family and it’s like driving with a close friend rather then a instructor but saying that he’s also very strict and if you make a mistake he will let you know and he will not let you drive away until… Read Full Review

“Zahid helped me kill my only gremlin”

Written on: 04/09/2018 by Alex.10101 (1 review written)

I was a very nervous driver, I had a previous instructor with the AA who wasn't quite right for me. I failed my test twice with him as my instructor. After my second failure, I moved over to Zahid (I am in West London) and he was like listening to a mediation instructor. He was patient, calm, reassuring and soothing. My driving style changed from nervous, panicked, tense, aggressive and rushed to the complete opposite. If it wasn't for Zahid I would be lost, I would recommend him to anyone else… Read Full Review

On behalf of our family we are so overwhelmed with our experience and we would love to thank our driving instructor and the AA for helping us during our driving lessons.

“My instructor was the best!”

Written on: 07/08/2018 by vjsmith (1 review written)

I passed with zero minor faults on my first attempt and couldn’t have done it without my instructor. If you’re in the HA area of London, I can not recommend my instructor enough. He made me feel comfortable, at ease, and was genuinely the best instructor I have ever had. He’s great for a conversation and for a laugh, too! Just what you want with someone teaching you how to drive in a new country. Seriously. he was the man. You should book lessons with him!… Read Full Review

“NO show for first lesson and NO contact”

Written on: 30/07/2018 by emMurphy489 (1 review written)

I booked a first double driving lesson for my son. He is a reluctant learner and lacks confidence. As a graduate engineer he finally accepted he has to learn.I persuaded him away from his choice to the AA: they are a driving association with an established reputation and therefore worth the extra cost, said I. The initial process is easy: register and give a postal address and mobile telephone number. A list of available slots comes up, you tick the slot you want and then pay. A text is then… Read Full Review

Completely greatful to have a driving instructor Jaye, who enabled and built my confidence to over come my nervous and accomplished my goal of the year!

I contacted AA Driving School, my requests were noted down, all arranged in a very friendly way and the process was very smooth and swift. The Instructor was supposed to deliver lesson during his working hours, but upon my request he accommodated me in every possible way. Even came over to my place to arrange the matters there and then. I really appreciate his way of teaching, very patient and friendly. Most importantly he discusses the candidate's requirements thoroughly and accordingly… Read Full Review
