Why learn with RSM Driving School?
RSM Driving School, or Rahman’s School of Motoring, was founded by Foyzur Rahman. His passion for driving led him to qualify as a driving instructor in 1997, aged just 21. Over the years, the school has expanded to cover the whole of Birmingham and most of the surrounding areas.
RSM provides competitive prices, with plenty of package deals. The school acknowledges that every student learns at a different rate, so it offers a choice of intensive driving courses and regular tuition with its experienced instructors. It also provides automatic and manual lessons, Pass Plus, motorway lessons, refresher courses, and help with theory tests.
