    Red Driving School's parent firm in administration

    A heads up for anybody who was planning to book driving lessons with Red.

    Not sure if you pay the company direct, or driving instructor (who I presume is self employed?)

    If it's the company it may be worth paying with a credit card if making a block booking over £100 or pay on a lesson by lesson basis if paying by any other method.

    According to BBC they are UK's 3rd biggest driving school.

    Good Heads up.....

    Driving schools must of been hit hard over the last 2 years with all the doom and gloom.....

    Im actually "general manager" (not my official role) for an up and coming driving school, I won't mention which one as it may be classed as self promotion lol but its good news for us.

    haha I didn't think of that one, could be a possibility, I know they are now looking for a buyer to save them from going under, might get the directors to make them an offer :thumbsup: hehe

    you're 22 and already a general manager of a driving school?

    I was waiting for this comment, lol

    yeh I am, we are not a massive company by any means but that is the aim, we have over 50 instructors on the books at the minute, and are aiming for 100 in 6 months time.

    I'm only a manager because I have been here since the very beginning, I started when the company was formed. I was the first employee

    I started as a temp just to get their databases sorted out and thats what I studied and stayed, "manager" isnt my official role although thats what everyone sees me as now, because I deal with all aspects of the company, from dealing with instructors to the seo and internet marketing side of the company.

    with red driving school they charge 3k to make drivers into driving instructors, yet the test fees costs almost 1k if passed first time, the material costs another £600 which comes free with red. if you include that with lessons, equipment, administraion and car use. they make a loss
