Note : You must use the 0800 975 6034 telephone number for the offer, as the offer is not advertised on the AA Web site.

#3
Wow ! i work for bsm but i got to say thats a great price
#4
Can you do a refresher on this? As i'm a bit rusty after not driving for 17 years :oops:
#5
If you are a new customer they should honour it. Shouldn't matter what your current experience is.
A lesson is a lesson !
#6
but their normal rates are 24 per hour which i think is much expensive than the other institutions around
#7
Could you take 4 hours with AA and then the rest with someone else I wonder?
#8
Just phoned them to try and book 4 hours for my mum. She's got a full driving license but hasnt driven in years. Apparently this offer doesn't apply to those who aren't first time learners... worth a try!

I am a self employed Driving instructor and i would recommend that you always learn through a sole trader unless recommended to a specific instructor at a big company. In my experience the instructor that you may get is hit and miss. All schools have some bad and some good instructors. The amount you pay is usually more than a sole trader as an aa/bsm instructor has to pay a franchise to the company which you pay for in extra price for the lessons. If you go to a sole trader you know who you are going to get and if you don't like them then go somewhere else. Also the cheapest per hour is not always the cheapest long term. The cheaper people might need to be cheap to attract new custom as they lose pupils frequently due to bad tuition. This is not always the case before any other instructors get on my back. You are best finding an instructor and car that you are comfortable with. If it is more per hour than the cheaper people then you could save money in the long run by taking fewer lessons. Also some people charge more than the standard 2 hours for the driving test. If this is the case then you could be paying extra at the end. All points to bear in mind when choosing an instructor. If you know someone that has recommended an instructor then that is always the best way...

I agree Adam, Just put my son through a special offer with BSM the 5 hours that must be 6 thingy for about £100 he did very little driving even though he is a naturally able 17 year old. Then, through the post came an invoice for over a thousand pounds saying he was booked til next march including buying stuff and tests. We had made it clear we were giving it a trial so needless to say he doesnt have lessons at the mo and felt quite guilty that his parents were NEARLY duped into a big debt.

Agreed.

My wife is an instructor - who used to work for both BSM and the AA at different times. The franchise fees are crippling - I recall one Xmas, she made a grand total of £7 - and that was before you took her fuel costs off, so she actually lost money.

She gave up driving instruction as she got fed up with some people cancelling at the last minute or simply not showing up for a booked lesson - she was too soft with them and ended up being out of pocket as a result. I told her I'd happily be a debt collector on her behalf, but she wouldn't have it - shame.

She's back teaching again - and once again went with a franchise with the AA this time, before she again went independant due to massive franchise costs - it's all very nice getting a brand new Ford Focus every 6 months but what's the real benefit at the end of the day?

Due to the fact she's once again independant, she can be flexible with the hours she works - helpful now she's expecting our first wee one. She's received nothing but praise for her teaching, has managed to get a large number of 'lost causes' through their tests and has a 100% pass rate so far this year.

It's easy for instructors to sometimes hide behind a large corporation, as it's not really their reputation that's at risk, which is a reason I believe, like yourself, that independant instructors are the way to go.:thumbsup:

I also had a similar experience with BSM, i had a really old creepy instructor who would drive me to and from a "suitable location" where I could drive, which would take up most of the lesson and then I told them I didnt want anymore lessons they sent me a bill for hundreds for lessons I hadnt booked!! I then when with a local instructor who was fab.

Thanks for the info, people. My son has his provisional and I have his birthday money in the bank to book lessons. We have £200 to start him off. I was going to book one of the BSM or this AA special offer to get him started, but my sister put me off the BSM one saying that they drag the lessons out forever. And to be honest I would much rather give the money to an independant instructor .

Does anyone have a personal recommendation of a good instructor around Glasgow west end to Clydebank area? Thanks!

I agree with all of the above posts (adamrwood, moob, etc) and would personally steer clear of these deals with a very large bargepole............

My partner is also an independent driving instructor who used to work for BSM followed by Safedrive and I would like to stick my two penneth in!!!!

These deals are just a very large hook to real you in - Think very carefully about how many lessons you will realistically need to pass your driving test. The average is around 45 hours according to the DSA. (Some people need much less than this but some people also need much more!!!). Sticking with the DSA quoted average, if you go with the AA then 4 hours @ £10.50ph followed by 41 hours @ £24ph = a grand total of £1026. Compare this to an independent instructor charging around £18ph = £810 (not including any further discounts of up to 20% for block booking etc). I know which I think is the better deal :thumbsup:

Is it worth taking up the offer of 4 hours @ £10.50 and then moving to a different instructor?

Well think about what you need when you start to learn to drive. At a minimum, you need time to get used to the car (the Ford Focus is a BIG, HEAVY car) and you start to build a relationship with your instructor. Do you really want to spend £42 and then have to start all over again with a different car and a different instructor......

Don't take the bait :roll:
