“Driving Lessons with Red Driving School”

Written on: 16/07/2018

I learnt to drive with Red driving school and honestly it was the best experience a learner lacking in confidence could ever hope for! If you live in or near Northampton I would strongly recommend my Driving instructor who always made sure I was comfortable and always gave brilliant feedback at the end of lessons. Before I started my lessons I was terrified of the road and she really improved my confidence and proved that anyone can drive! I found myself looking forward to every lesson!I… Read Full Review

“Excellent learning experience”

Written on: 13/07/2018 by RobinMm (1 review written)

I definitely started out a reluctant learner. In my mid 30s and never once tried learning to drive. I was a very slow learner, but my instructor was very patient, and also extremely flexible when i had other responsibilities such as childcare. It took the better part of a year but when i took my driving test around up at Hither Green, and I passed first time. Would recommend Red in general, but my instructor in particular, especially for the more wary, older learner… Read Full Review

“My red driving instructor experience”

Written on: 12/07/2018 by gmontanez (1 review written)

I started my driving lessons last year with another company and instructor however I started to lack motivation to continue and felt my previous instructor wasent teaching me up to the standards I needed. I researched into finding a new company and instructor and I cannot fault my instructor enough. He’s professional, friendly, patient and very flexible. He has prepared me to take my test within such a short space of time. I would definately reccomend him. I can’t wait to start driving and… Read Full Review

Huge thanks for all your help and patience so I could pass my test! After 8 years and 4 attempts and becoming quite nervous as a result, I've finally done it. He helped keep my cool and was superb at giving instructions and giving the right kind of support that I needed. Thank you so much! Robynne… Read Full Review

“RED Driving School Review”

Written on: 11/07/2018 by jamesgregory05 (1 review written)

I Learnt to drive through RED Driving School around the Bolton area. I passed in just over two months worth of lessons which was much quicker then I expected. This was down to my tutor as each lesson was prepared in detail, with clear objectives set out to be completed by the end of each individual lesson. Within the lessons themselves, he passed over the information and advice required in simple terms to make everything easier to understand. I always felt comfortable and at ease when learning… Read Full Review

“Excellent Learner Driver Experience!”

Written on: 11/07/2018

I initially started learning to drive over a year ago with a driving school other than Red. My instructor was aggressive, unclear and really knocked my confidence. I therefore gave up learning to drive and was very apprehensive about taking it up again, particularly as I am pregnant. My instructor was simply fantastic. She was professional, calm, prompt, an excellent communicator, supremely organised, encouraging and warm. She followed the curriculum to the letter and helped me to learn to… Read Full Review

“Fabulous experience with a Pass First Time”

Written on: 09/07/2018 by ClaireBransfield (1 review written)

I decided in March this year it was finally time for me to learn to drive and being in my early 40’s I won’t lie I was really nervous! My driving instructor was phenomenal. She is a very talented instructor, she is patient, calm, explains concepts brilliantly and put me at ease straight away, helping me to build my confidence quickly. Throughout the whole experience my instructor tested me to make sure I understood what I was being taught, calmly dealt with situations where I was doing… Read Full Review

“Use a local company not these clowns”

Written on: 06/07/2018 by Kf1969 (1 review written)

10 days ago I booked a beginners lesson for my son, and provided our full postcode at the time of booking. On the day the instructor turned up and said we were too far for him to travel so cancelled the lesson. I thought part of learning to drive was using sat nav nowadays, good luck with that, when the instructors can't use it to see how far they would need to travel. To compound the problem when challenged the instructor claimed he had told my son the distance might be an issue - at no point… Read Full Review

“My instructor was amazing”

Written on: 06/07/2018 by Sherry33 (1 review written)

When I first started with red I had someone who taught me absolutely nothing! However I changed and found a different instructor! He taught me so much in such a short space of time! I will never forget how much he helped me, he was pleasant and professional and knew exactly what he was doing. I learnt so much from him and was very supported by him. I passed my test at 9months pregnant and honestly couldn’t of done it without him! I would highly recommend him… Read Full Review

“Awful, unreliable & unable to deal with things going wrong”

Written on: 06/07/2018 by Ebela95 (1 review written)

I had the most appalling experience with RED. I had to change instructors 3 times with RED with gaps in-between and different cars which was really disruptive for my learning. When I informed RED that this disruption had had a negative impact on me and decreased my confidence about being ready for my test, i was made to feel as if i was over-reacting and no action was taken. They just kept stressing that they couldn't control the behaviour of their drivers and failed to take any accountability… Read Full Review

“Excellent”

Written on: 05/07/2018 by kuEngland183 (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the Bristol area. After previously having a bad experience with a different instructor of a different company and failing a test, a friend recommended my instructor. He was patient in accepting the ways I had already learnt as well as offering his own insight to get rid of bad habits and provide helpful tips. Can't thank him enough :)… Read Full Review

“Greenford and Southall area thinking about joining RED. ”

Written on: 05/07/2018 by camillaallimac (1 review written)

I previously was with another driving school for a considerable amount of time but felt that I was making very slow progress. After much research online I decided to go with RED. From the very first lesson, my instructor just made everything seem so much more simple than my previous instructor. He was very patient and had a range of strategies up his sleeve to help when things became tricky. Things really started to click into place and I began to feel and drive much more confidently. After… Read Full Review

“Dreadful”

Written on: 04/07/2018 by Murdock217 (1 review written)

My daughter utilised the driving school and failed 3 times. This in itself is not necessarily the issue a child can fail for a number of reasons. The fact was the way in which it was dealt with. After 60 Hours of lessons the 'driving instructor' state that he would not take her for her test because it made him look bad. He said that he would not do so as she needed more lessons!! The fact was that she was unable to do so because of other commitments, but also did have a further 4 hours of… Read Full Review

“Excellent driving instructor! ”

I've just passed my test and I couldn't have done it the help of my instructor Vienessa Habit! She was absolutely amazing from my first lesson to the last! Her friendly but professional approach meant I was never anxious about going to lessons and got me to test standard quickly! Even after failing my first test she made sure I didn't get too down about it and helped me get better for the next time! I highly recommend and have already got a friend taking lessons from her as well! A great… Read Full Review
