Newest Review: ... going round in circles dodging crates. I did not pay £45 for 50 minutes to play bumper cars with crates in a car park. Straight after the lesson I called BSM to say how unhappy I was and that I didn't wish to continue with them. Anyone looking for a driving school I advise you go for a much smaller local driving school as they tend to be more focused on their pupils. Do not fall in the trap of booking bulk lessons and paying a fortune all in one go and then finding out the instructor they give you is an absolute moron. Pay for one introductory lesson, see how you get on with the instructor and then decide.... more

I had few driving lessons with a BSM Driving instructor ,I have a full driving lessons but haven't been driving for couple of years.I only had 2 lessons and I went back to driving by myself,that's all thanks to my driving instructor she has been great,the best one and made me feel really confident and relaxed when I was in the car.I would highly recommend her she has been always on time and even went with me for a drive around with my car and didn't even charge me.

I booked a lesson on the BSM website and paid by debit card. The instructor never showed up and didn't even bother to call us to cancel. After phoning the company, they explained me the online offer wasn't available in my area and that they would refund the money paid, but they did not apologize. They never refunded me, despite contacting them several times over the phone and through e-mails. I would never deal with that company again.

I had my first lesson about 18 months ago with BSM and I can not find one positive thing to say. The instructor was completely ignorant, turned up 40 minutes late, when I asked he said his sat nav took him the wrong way. I laughed in his face. For the whole hour lesson (50 minutes actually, even though they state you get the full hour) he made me drive around a Tesco delivery car park going round in circles dodging crates.

==Ready, steady, let's do this== Rewind, approximately one year (give or take a few months). I am early thirties and looking to drive at last. The delay is due to an ongoing lack of funds, but through the generosity of a close family member I am finally able to take the plunge. I do some tactical internet research to way up my options, I'm looking for competitive rates essentially and when I stumble upon BSM I think I've found a winner. At £20 per lesson (when you book a block of ten or more) it was by far the best offer I had found. I booked ten for starters, with a veiw to booking a further five or more depending on how things went. ==A site for ... Read the complete review

I failed my driving test 8 or 9 times around twenty years ago. I thought I would join BSM via a relative of an instructor. The first lesson was cancelled the night before, fair enough the lesson was rescheduled and was free of charge. Of the two hour lesson around two thirds was talking, which I thought was very likely standard proceedure for a first lesson. The Second lesson was cancelled on the very date of the lesson. The Second lesson was rescheduled and again, there was a lot of talk and we finished really early. My third lesson has been cancelled for Friday and it is now time to go with another school. I am very disappointed.
