“Friendly and reliable driving instructor”

Written on: 16/10/2017 by RachelPruitt (1 review written)

I have recently passed my driving test with a driving instructor. Throughout my time with my instructor he was calm, friendly, patient and reliable. At the start of each lesson he would ask me how I felt the last lesson had gone and what I felt less confident with. Thank you for all your help! … Read Full Review

“False information”

Written on: 24/09/2017 by Byrdqj11 (1 review written)

On the website it states that driving lessons can usually start within a couple of days. Turns out that there is a massive waiting list and you will have to wait at least 4 weeks (but probably longer] before you can start… Read Full Review

“Out of date website”

Written on: 11/09/2017 by McDowellbj203 (1 review written)

The website has a HUGE page dedicated to giving lessons to students in my area but after calling today I was told that they are no longer coming to my village. Very disappointed as they were recommended by son's friends and I'm trying to find someone locally I can trust and will be professional. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR WEBSITE ASAP!!!… Read Full Review

Hi,
I do apologise but the instructor in your area is very full up and moves in his areas closer to him as do the other instructors, we don't change this on the website as they will finally be able to take new pupils on in your area once they have more space. So sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you. Thanks Carolann Safedrive

“Unhelpful bored customer service”

Written on: 23/08/2017 by Omaril333 (1 review written)

Called asking for more information and the girl serving me couldn't have been much ruder and unhelpful- seemed incredibly reluctant to help or say anything. Doesn't provide massive amounts of confidence unfortunately so will be looking elsewhere… Read Full Review

i started my driving lessons at 44 and knew i would struggle a little as it is easier the younger you are.i started in manual but due to a little trouble with instructors i eventually switched to automatic and it was the best thing i could have done. i chose safedrive as they had a really good reputation and my instructor certainly lived up to it. he was kind and patient and never rushed me and luckily i passed my test first time yesterday. excellent quality lessons at a reasonable price i… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2017 by morganfurmage (1 review written)

Thought I would leave a quick note thanking Safedrive and the person I dealt with for their help in getting me through my driving test, I couldn't be happier. The person I dealt with was a fantastic instructor, patient and easy to get along with. He went at my own pace and was very reassuring, helping me to feel confident whith driving. I would certainly recommend them both! Many thanks… Read Full Review

“wrong details online, terrible staff, unwilling to help”

Written on: 05/05/2017 by Whittaker465 (1 review written)

claims on the website they have instructors in most places throughout the uk, however when you call, they say there miles away from your location and that the prices are different even if you go to a different location. I offered to go closer, they said no. joke of a company and quite pricey. Go to your local driving instructor, much nicer and i passed first time with them. avoid these… Read Full Review

“Had previously been with 2 other instructors until I...”

Written on: 10/03/2017 by KelsieDavidson60 (1 review written)

Had previously been with 2 other instructors until I found the person I dealt with. He makes you feel so relaxed, I use to dread my lessons and found them really stressful. He managed to teach me all my manoeuvres that my previous instructors had not even bothered to do. I only had 3 or 3 weeks worth of lessons with him before taking my test that I had booked before starting with him. I was unsure whether I would be ready in time for the test, but he made sure to get me in as many available… Read Full Review

“Wasted Time & Money”

Written on: 10/02/2017 by LoobyBrazier (1 review written)

After nearly 12weeks of 2hr lessons, my son had not been taught any manoeuvres, most of the lessons were 7.30am(as that was best time for the instructor), he has now cancelled his lessons and lost interest in learning, no help was offered for the theory test, he was just told to book it, so we have paid out Pounds for him to just drive round and round!!!… Read Full Review

So sorry your son didn't enjoy his lessons with our driving instructor. We only wish you had called the office we would've been more than happy and are still more than happy to help as we deal with complaints very seriously, if you could call us to resolve this.

Kind regards, Carolann @ Safedrive

I've just passed my driving test first time, I was really nervous about driving but my instructor always made me feel at ease.

“Passed first time!!”

I have to give most if not ALL of the thanks to my driving instructor around Surrey (Leatherhead, Epsom, Ashtead) for passing my test first time, I had a very intense few days of driving with her but was all worth it! If anyone is going to help you through the test she is the one, she's very patient, understanding and good at guageing your level Thank you so much and if you are umming and erring about learning to drive in that part of Surrey don't, just try and find her and hopefully she… Read Full Review
