“Passed first time with RED”

Written on: 20/11/2017 by EHollis (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED in Warwickshire. My instructor was great, super encouraging and really patient when I used to get annoyed at myself for not doing a manoeuvre correctly. I passed first time and would definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for an instructor in Warwick… Read Full Review

“A total disgrace ”

Written on: 19/11/2017

My son had booked driving lesson with red, he spent all the time on his phone during the lessons and did not teach him much at all, when it came to the test his car failed, from that day he avoided all my son's calls and texts due to not wanting to pay my son his no at back, after many e mails and contacting head office we got a percentage back but refused the full amount, the company would not accept any responsibility and said that we should never have paid the driving instructor direct,So… Read Full Review

“High Quality Instructor”

Written on: 18/11/2017

I've been having classes with one of the RED instructors for a few months now and I can safely say he is brilliant. Very patient, knowledgeable and he takes the time with his students. My instructor has stated time and time again that he doesn't teach me just so I can pass the test. He makes sure I understand the responsibility of being a driver and helps me obtain the necessary skills to be a good driver. Extremely happy I went with RED even more so after the stories I've hear of some… Read Full Review

This is what's happening to my daughter. She's had eight lessons and hasn't got out of second gear! He spends most of the time driving and talking when its cost her a fortune. Can you just cancel them ?

“Brilliant”

Written on: 15/11/2017 by surajit_sett (1 review written)

I was already a driver when I came to the UK. But had to recondition myself to drive on UK roads. She has been wonderful, adjusting her already busy schedule to accommodate my classes and tests. I passed on the third attempt, but that's only because I had to change my driving habits a lot. Thanks to RED Driving School and my instructor for all the help… Read Full Review

“ Brilliiant !!!”

Written on: 14/11/2017 by ChristopherPJ (1 review written)

I went with a male instructor from Red Driving School, after my previous driving school behaved badly, and pulled out at the last minute leaving me lacking confidence in myself. I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have made... ! From start to finish my instructor talked to me whilst driving, laughing and joking along the way making me feel at ease. Getting someone that I felt comfortable with and made me feel confident is very important to me, He kept me up to date with emails… Read Full Review

“Learning to drive with Red”

Written on: 12/11/2017 by kkcallaway (1 review written)

I learned to drive with a RED driving instructor. I am proud to say I passed my practical test first time. I did have another instructor prior to this one, he was self-employed and he was terrible. When I ended my lessons with him I had hardly any confidence in my driving and for me confidence is a big problem anyway. My first lesson with this instructor was brilliant, even though I had no confidence, he helped me to relax and feel comfortable. Throughout my many mistakes in that first lesson… Read Full Review

“Highly Recommended”

Written on: 12/11/2017 by iris5929 (1 review written)

I re-learned to drive with RED Driving School in the Edinburgh area (Trinity). I had not driven for over 30 years, and before that had been driving on the right-hand side (Germany, Canada). When I started looking for a school/instructor in May to get my UK license, it seemed impossible to get booked in for a course of lessons until September. RED (whose attractive fleet of cars I had seen driving around in my area)was the only school that came through after 3 days of trying to accommodate me… Read Full Review

“From Zero to Hero”

Written on: 12/11/2017 by Palmervp1959 (1 review written)

I started driving with no experience, no confidence and no chance of passing. My instructor took time to build a one-on-one relationship with me and develop all three attributes. He was patient, encouraging and settling - three qualities key to a good driver and a relaxed/happy setting. He went at my own pace, and when it came to time he thought I was ready, I did my test. First time pass! … Read Full Review

“Goodmayes,Essex. Automatic car lessons.”

Written on: 09/11/2017

I had the instructor based in Goodmayes who does automatic car driving lessons. Shame I can't put his name here. I have really struggled and failed a few times. I struggled with reverse around a corner and parallel parking. He is the only person who taught me useful steps. Finally passed! Thankyou so much!… Read Full Review

“Driving test experience”

Written on: 08/11/2017 by gelacastro (1 review written)

I've taken my driving test twice with a manual car before deciding to switch to automatic. So, I've called RED to book my lessons and they gave me a new instructor who literally saved my life. I actually wish I had done it the first time with her and honestly feel like I would have pass then and there. There were some gaps missing in my knowledge in driving and she made sure to teach me everything I need to know. The 3rd driving test I took in Tolworth (where I actually always do it), I failed… Read Full Review

“Passed first time!”

Written on: 08/11/2017 by Kayshapatel (1 review written)

So happy I passed first time with the person I dealt with at RED driving school, as someone who gets a lot of anxiety when driving, he always made the lessons relaxing and was always patient with me. Lessons were always very educational and after three less than helpful instructors it was good to learn and understand everything about driving in detail. Thank you RED driving school for finally helping me achieve one of my biggest goals!… Read Full Review

“Having had not-so-good experiences in trying to pass...”

Written on: 07/11/2017 by AlastairC. (1 review written)

Having had not-so-good experiences in trying to pass my test previously, and not having stepped behind the wheel of a car in over 3 years, I was slightly apprehensive about starting driving lessons all over again. I ended up choosing RED simply because they were the only school with available lesson slots in my area – but I'm so glad I ended up with them! Their online platform is really easy to use and convenient, and – more importantly – the instructor, Ross Kean, was absolutely… Read Full Review

“I passed so can you. ”

Written on: 07/11/2017 by Smither92 (1 review written)

I learnt to drive with RED Driving School in the Birmingham area. I highly recommend using my instructor to learn to drive, he’s very methodical in the way he teaches you making sure you don’t just learn to drive but you learn how to drive safely and for the exam. RED’s prices are fair but it’s really the instructors that make it. Ask for him when you contact RED… Read Full Review

“Worse driving school in the country ”

Written on: 07/11/2017 by Gretchen498 (1 review written)

Red driving school was the Worse company I have ever come across. Charged me 30 pound for a lesson I was unable to do due to my eyesight. Even though I wasn't aware I needed glasses. Not reasonable atal. Wouldn't even hold back and let me have the lesson after i had been opticians so it's cost me 30 pound and 2 hours paid holidays from work to be told I'm blind as bat. The instructor got paid for doing F all. Only thing it saved me was a bus journey home. Complete waste of time. Horrible… Read Full Review

I was sorry to hear that you are having eye-sight problems. Our instructors are of course required to check that your eye-sight is suitable for driving and you are not legally allowed to drive if your sight is does not reach the minimum standard.. The instructor had devoted those two hours to you but through no fault of his, you could not have the lesson. In such circumstances, it is quite reasonable that you be charged for the lesson. Assuming that once your eyesight problem is resolved you can drive, I wish you well with your goal of gaining a licence to drive.
