My son started learning to drive with Red.

My son started learning to drive with Red. However from day one I was not happy with the instructor or her poor attitude. It was a take it or leave it attitude. We tried to book lessons online on Red's website and she told me that she didn't use it.Waste of my time booking lessons on there then! She then told me that lessons were only available every 2 weeks. So I said if that was the case I would look elsewhere. She then promised to fit lessons in every week. she didn't inform us that she would need to carry out a license check until the day of the lesson and then threatened to cancel the lesson because we didn't have the details for her to carry out the check. We didn't know that we needed our license details on the first lesson, she should have told us before. But, the last straw was when my son's Grandmother died and he had to cancel a lesson because of the funeral she decided she would still charge him because it was 7 hours inside the 48 hours policy, so for my son to attend his Gran's funeral cost him £56 there has been no compassion shown and this is purely a money grabbing exercise. I have asked for a full refund for the the remaining lessons and I will not be recommending Red to friends and colleagues.

I have been driving with the RED driving school since September last year and just recently past first time with only one minor! My driving instructor was so helpful and well understanding that I passed in no time, and I'm glad that I chose RED at the beginning. Great experience, Thank You!

Their website advertises intensive courses, when I called I was told that they didn't offer intensive courses and that they actually recommend against them!

Their website advertises intensive courses, when I called I was told that they didn't offer intensive courses and that they actually recommend against them! I was sold on the basis of very good instructor availability, well, that wasn't the case either! All of the lessons booked over phone when I initially signed-up were cancelled, availability has been a constant issue. The result has been a time-frame that has quadrupled from the outset. I would avoid Red at all costs, as they are only interested in taking your money and will say whatever you want to hear to part you with it.

I used to drive on the left for 10 years however, here I have to adjust my driving to the other side of the road.

I used to drive on the left for 10 years however, here I have to adjust my driving to the other side of the road. I started lessons with my partner who was in the same situation as myself. He is very friendly instructor. We learnt so many things from him and his lessons are very interesting. Unique style of teaching. He is always on time. When you are in his car you can't stop laughing. He has 13 years of experience.

I really struggled with driving.

I really struggled with driving. I had 3 different instructors and failed my test 4 times before starting lessons with Red. In under 3 weeks my driving improved so much and I soon passed my last test with flying colours and some very generous comments from the examiner! Despite the higher cost, lessons were well worth the investment.

Rich was an absolute mavrick from the moment I stepped into the car, all the way up until he dropped me home after passing my test (first time with two minors to boot).

Rich was an absolute mavrick from the moment I stepped into the car, all the way up until he dropped me home after passing my test (first time with two minors to boot).I thought I'd never pass! However Rich always reckoned I could do it, and helped me with not just teaching me the skills to pass my test but to genuinely be a great driver. I looked forward to my lesson every week, and within a couple of weeks it was like being taught by an old mate. The only problem now is I'm going to miss the two hours every week spent learning and having a great time doing it.I can only speak from my own experience but for me RED was 10/10 - thanks Rich, it was a pleasure!

SO happy, pleased my test time around.

SO happy, pleased my test time around. Having a patient and suportive iistructor really helped. They helped build up my confidence and shehas the trick of the trade, helping me and understanding everything. I can't believe how much progress I have made as when I first started I was very unconfident. Yet passed first time with no problems what so ever. I would definitely reccommend if your looking to guide to passing your test so well.
