Hi I have a driving licence but haven’t driven for a decade and never in London. I want to take a refresher course. Wondered if anyone could recommend any local driving schools (otherwise I guess I’ll just go through AA or BSM). Thanks
Not a driving school, but an excellent local instructor. His name is Silvano Bozza, he just taught my daughter to drive and I know he does refresher courses. His number is 07702 615834
I would recommend Keith Webb.
Taught me and many friends back in 90-01, and still teaching and passing people at a fantastic rate.
Friendly, relaxed, and very effective
Has also got my sister through her test, 2 past girlfriends of mine through theirs, a friends wife and many more.
Thanks both, I will give them a call.
There’s an excellent AA instructor lives on Stanstead Road by the Blythe Hill. Taught me - can be found on Facebook as Steve AA, I think.
College Driving school taught my 3 kids to drive. Recommend them, run by David Wellbrook.
Lois - based Westwood Hill: http://www.safemotoring.co.uk/
I had some refresher lessons with her earlier this year and she was really good! Did wonders for my confidence, as well as a much needed refresh of how to park (in the decade since I passed my test I’d driven maybe 5 times…).
Sorry for having started a new thread by mistake not realising this one was still going.
I am after any feedback for the Learning Curve Driving school, the reviews look good but they all seem to be only from the last couple of weeks.
Afraid I don’t know them. But given you’re after input on just one specific driving school I think that would warrant a new thread. Seems unlikely the 13 people who have commented on this topic in the last year would know this. Suggest you as @ChrisBeach if that would be alright.
Let’s stick to one thread for driving school recommendations. @killjoy - may be worth trying one of the recommendations above before an unknown quantity.
Tip - with recommendations, look out for posts from verified members - these are folks we’ve met in real life and are likely to be posting genuine feedback as opposed to soliticiting for their own businesses.
Starman : I am trying to stick to 1 thread.
I opened a new one not knowing this one existed, my thread was closed by Chris and I was pointed to this one so I passed my query on to this one.
@killjoy My recommendation for Silvano at the top of this thread still stands. Great instructor.
I find the problem with google results for local services is you either see paid-for ads first or there are lots of companies that pretend to be local but aren’t. There are dedicated driving instructor rating websites, it might be worth tracking down a few of those.
