Tried to buy this using a tablet & a mobile but can't enter an email address. Tried 3 different browsers as well. Will try again later but really not impressed tbh. Wanted this as a birthday gift.

I remember asking my driving instructor waaaaaay back when if he did discounts on block bookings like this but he dismissed it as a false economy, you get what you pay for kind of thing.
#7
Lessons after the 4 hours cost like 4-5 times as much, so there's pretty much no saving.
#8
Who pays £120 for four hours?!
#9
where are the locations i cant find them? i am based in stockton/middlesbrough
#10
Heat for the picture!

Can you put the family with suitcases in the back and have the 4 hour lesson in one go?
#12
This would be really useful for me and a great price. Would be nice to hear more opinions on if the company offering the lessons is any good. Not voting until there's more info.

Where else can you get 4hrs of lessons with a registered driving instruction for £19? You aren't committed to staying with them after that so great for a taster experience at least. Timely post, my daughter's 17th birthday is next week & she can't wait to get started!
Thanks OP, heat added.
#14
its only for complete beginners who will no doubt need about 20-30 more lesson each at 30 quid each so not a good deal.
#15
I can guarantee that in those four hours you'll be visiting a petrol station four times at least!

Ahh, missed that. In that case, you'll probably be driven to suitable roads for you to practise on that are conveniently located half an hour away.

I know - about four years ago, I was duped by one of these con artists. They were part of the Bill Plant franchise - I had 3 one-hour and 1 two-hour lesson for £56. One of those lessons, we visited the petrol station three times. I was driven to a suitable road on the two-hour lesson, which took us half an hour to get to - of the time I had left, a good portion was wasted while the instructor sorted out an insurance quote on the phone. On the third lesson, I noticed the clock was five minutes faster than yesterday, yet we still finished when the fast clock said it was time to.

Needless to say, I didnt go back and would advise anyone to stay well away from any of these nationwide schools that offer cheap deals and then con people out of money through more time wasting tactics than even Cristiano Ronaldo himself is capable of! Better off going with a local, established instructor who knows your area.

Old people driving!!! get off the street!!! community meeting getting out!!!

Madness, no way will this be worth it.

ask around and use a recomended instructor who doesnt do these massive discounts for block booking
#22
In the Republic of Ireland where I'm originally from, the cheapest lesson for one hour is 40euros. Which is about 32pound. This is a steal

Have to complete form to get eligible locations so no thanks.

This would be good for me since I already know how to drive and have driven for many years but don't have a UK license

Don't take this offer up if you want to learn to drive. Either get personal recommendations from family or friends. Failing this make a shortlist of local intructors and check out thier website......the good ones will allow feedback comments from past students and they will offer to sit in the back of your car during your test (if you wish) and then be on hand to congratulate you or offer advice on areas that still need work. The cheapest upfront price is often false economy and the disappointment of failure will leave a scar that will take time to heal.

These are always around on groupon and wowcher. they pretend they are a big company with locations everywhere when in fact its usually one guy who will just drive to those locations.
#28
These beginner lessons are just that. They are cheap because you hardly do any driving in the first few lessons i.e. learning the pedals, mirrors etc then they expect you to carry on with them. There isn't a shortage of instructors and no shortage of pupils so this is a way of getting customers.

I just did a bulk lesson thing which I found to be great and offered good value. Hopefully after something like this you can get one of those or just go for one of those to start with.

I'm an ADI and I'll promise you that you'll get exactly what you pay for.

Most calls I take from prospective clients will be one simple question..."How much are your lessons?"

I reply that if you're shopping for the cheapest not only will you get what you pay for but that I wouldn't be interested in teaching you.

The obsession with buying cheap is disgusting. And these companies selling like these will, I'm glad to say, be a struggling outfit permanently.

I bought a similar deal on groupon a couple of years ago. The guy was so inflexible (lessons could only be done during the normal 9-5 work day, all his weekends were booked up), that it was actually impossible for me to take the lessons.

Does it come with an instructor?

There are currently no instructors covering your area. However, if you buy a voucher we can search for an instructor just for you.
WTF????

A Google search suggested that this is essentially a bloke behind his computer - he offers instructors new students on the basis that they give them the free lessons - and he pockets the £20.
#35
Indeed, the ADI does not get paid anything for the first 2 x 2 hour lessons.

The ADI's must be the pits to get involved with this.
#36
So they're essentially the middle man in getting existing instructors potential clients through this scheme? If that's the case then I don't really see why someone that's accepted on that basis wouldn't do all it's effort to retain you through making sure you have a plasent experience.

I was also an ADI for 25 years and was forced into giving up the job I did well by these type of muppetts offering driving lessons at well below the proper price.
When I started In 1988 I charged £9 an hour which was a fair price considerering the overheads of a new car ,insurance, fuel, maintenance etc.
I was always reasonably busy until recent years when these newer less experienced instructors came on the scene offering lessons for peanuts because they could not get work because of their lack of experience and no commitment to the job.
Basically if you want to pay peanuts you'll get a monkey who'll be more than willing to 'try' to teach you.

careful with such deals on driving lessons - to get the initial tasty deal you usually have to sign a contract that locks you in til you pass, the discounts being applied at the end. If you stop early or switch instructor you've broken the contract and you'll be liable for any discounts given at the start. Works fine if you have a good instructor, but this kind of arrangement is popular amongst the poorer instructors who tend to lose their customers early on...

the 'get what you pay for' edict is oft quoted by salesmen trying to get maximum value for their services. 'Course we'd all like to get top dollar for our services, reality is you can only charge the price your customers are willing to pay. A good consumer will seek out the best value, which means good quality at fair market prices. Salesmen hate people who know the market, hence quoting the YGWYPF law in the hope it stops people shopping around
do you refuse to shop in supermarkets, getting all your groceries from bijou delicatessans ? maybe not...
