“Awful experience, aggressive and flakey instructors”

Written on: 19/09/2020 by georgem29 (1 review written)

The only reason I would recommend this driving school is if you were looking for unreliable, unfriendly and occasionally hostile instructors. They say that people only leave feedback if they've had a bad experience, but when my experience was this bad, I can't help but leave feedback as I don't want anyone else to go through this. If you would like to know why they are known as Dread Driving School amongst other driving schools, carry on reading. I started learning with these guys in November… Read Full Review

“I past my test 1st time ”

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

I had an amazing teacher who was so calming and patient . I suffer with depression and anxiety and can not praise my driving instructor enough. He kept me informed every step of the way through the covid pandemic though text messages and checked on all his studies to make sure we were all ok. I have had a few driving instructors in the past, but never managed to get to test standard before. I passed 1st time with my instructor.. A true gentleman who went on above and beyond to help me. I was… Read Full Review

Excellent!… Read Full Review

“Excellent, even during lockdown.”

Written on: 24/08/2020 by qjCollins53 (1 review written)

I am so pleased Red Driving placed me with Shanaz as my instructor. Calm, collected but also kind and patient - everything you would want in a person teaching an essential and difficult skill such as learning to drive. I'm thrilled to have passed, even more so to have done so with such a lovely person. Thank you so much for helping me get my pass quickly, despite all the difficulties of lockdown. All future Wolverhampton pupils will be lucky to learn with Shanaz and Red Driving! I could not… Read Full Review

“An amazing Instructor!”

Written on: 14/08/2020 by sharonsandhu (1 review written)

I passed both my practical driving test and pass plus with Red Driving school in the Birmingham area. My instructor taught me exceptionally well and I am grateful for all her help and support. A few years back I was driving with a different driving school who made me lose my confidence in driving, but my instructor made me gain my confidence not only in my general driving on the road again; but also driving in any conditions. She has always been very kind, patient and organised as an… Read Full Review

“Fabulous Teacher from Red”

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

My instructor is a gem of an instructor. He took me on and worked really hard to improve my driving. His approach was simple and yet so effective. He is more about making you a good driver which goes beyond just helping you pass the test. His lessons been very enjoyable and every minute spent with him helped my confidence as a driver. I am so glad I went to Red who have such class instructors. You have made a massive difference by helping me pass the test. Thank you Red but more importantly… Read Full Review

“Friendly and helpful”

Written on: 22/03/2020 by francescaalston (1 review written)

I learnt to drive in the West Wickham area and my instructor Ilona Szancilo was amazing! She was so patient and friendly and so very effective at building my confidence. I loved my lessons with Ilona so much that I also did a Pass Plus course with her to transfer the skills she taught me to my own car and practise more advanced scenarios. I would highly recommend the professionalism of Red Driving School - the online training was really helpful! And even more so I'd recommend Ilona for both… Read Full Review

“The very best!”

Written on: 06/03/2020 by PabloMarsh (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the NW2 area of London. I cannot recommend my instructor highly enough... she’s just incredible! I passed my test first time after just 8 weeks with her. First time! Ahead of my first lesson, she called me up and we had a nice conversation about what I expected and my previous experience (if any) and she spoke about how she works and what she expects. She is very clear and communicates well. My first lesson was informative, fun and exciting and… Read Full Review

“Had a brilliant learning to drive experience”

Written on: 05/03/2020 by KatieOK (1 review written)

After two previous attempts to learn to drive with other instructors, my instructor from RED Driving School in NW London helped me to gain confidence to take a test and pass first time. Previous lessons with other instructors had left me scared to drive and scared to take a test, but this instructor's no nonsense attitude to teaching and constant encouragement had me looking forward to lessons rather than dreading them. Each lesson left me feeling that I knew more than I did at the start and… Read Full Review
