No, nothing yet.
Nope, I haven't. Has anyone else? Makes me wonder whether it's a ploy to get people's details.
Has anyone heard back about this yet?

All this huffing and puffing. Truth is, we've got it great here but take bad driving too personally. Everyone needs to go to Asia and realise that it's not so bad here and just get on with it. On a side note, I recently came across some YouTube footage of dash cam drivers who deliberately went looking for trouble on the roads, but making out to look like they were in the right. These are the worst people out there
I think motorway speed limit should be 50 m/h its dangerous .I drive sometimes by 80 and I see my friend who sit beside me he was scared
I Have been driving for year but have never driven on a motorwayonly as a passenger but you are all scaring the life out of me so don't think I'll bother now. Thanks
thanks OP, filled online form, got a call from them within 12 hours and booked for driving lesson
booked online form and awaiting reply
Thanks for posting ..hot
Ours expired before the found an available instructor. Waste of money
Most instructors will give a big discount on the first few lessons, as you're unlikely to use much fuel-you just have to call and ask. Source: my OH is a driving instructor
heat for he pic if nothing else haha
For those that want an alternative to an app or even to use alongside the apps I found this to be rather good https://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/free-2015-mock-theory-test-2154346

But.. then on a separate attempt received a phenomenal result ;)
Ha I know but cannot edit on phone :) full marks for observation ..you should do well on the hazard perception test :p
Maybe its because the deal was for 7 months ago and has well expired :p
I think this May be a scam, I bought it for my daughter she put automatic instead of manual. I have tried contacting them by phone and there offices are always closed. The voucher code won't go in to send them an email. It's so annoying.
Anyone redeemed this yet? I just requested mine. How were the lessons, any advice? :)
Can this be used by guys? (or is this a female only voucher) Note: Not sexist...there are some driving agency that only take on female drivers (and/or there ads (ie on car) are quite feminine)
No offence dude but don't make comments like that until you've done the job for a while and experienced the thrill of a pupil accidently applying the hand brake at 60mph whilst attempting to get 5th gear, or maybe hiting the footbrake instead of the clutch at similar speeds when the muppet behind thinks an L plate means you can tail gate them to make them go faster.
Sorry don't get me wrong I never wished for things to turn out badly but in this day and age you generally get what you paid for. Like I said in a previous post I was a fully qualified driving instructor for 25 years and adored teaching and one of the reasons I packed it in was because of the new people coming into the profession just interested in the money. Then charging rediciously low rates because they were generally no good at the job and had to undercut the devoted professionals in order to get work.
No actually was very good, he took him for an hour and 20 minutes and they did driving, reversing round corners, parking and clutch control on a hill. He evaluated his driving and gave him a written appraisal of how many lessons he should need to pass and a discounted price should he wish to take the offer up so all in all great value for £3 - sorry to disappoint :p
Well how did the lesson go? You paid peanuts so did you get a monkey like I expected?
Well I will let you know as my son's is booked for Saturday morning, I would have thought they would go all out to impress you to get you to go again with them not bore you - copied and pasted from website " As a learner with ASK Driving School you will benefit from: DSA fully qualified approved driving instructors, guaranteed driving on your first lesson, dual controlled vehicles kept in excellent condition, collection from home school or work, full hour lessons."
I past my test with BSM in 2003 and I was paying £20-50 an hr but it worked out better if you bought bulk. Worked out I psid £19-50 an hr. Past 1st time with them would highly recommend
How much are bsm these days, remember paying 13.50 for bulk bookings back in the day and that was steep :)
Does this include pass plus/ refresher courses?
Plus BSM are ridiculously expensive to begin with!!
Students get up to 30% discount* off standard BSM prices when taking lessons with a trainee instructor! Not saying anything about the trainee, they might be great. But that is the reason for the discount.
Bought a voucher for cheap driving lessons and did not read the previous review. This is the worst company that I have ever dealt with. As stated below you can't get in touch with mike Simpson and his staff are poor at communicating also. Finally got an instructor after 4 weeks of trying and we arranged to meet for my first lesson. And guess what..... No instructor showed up! Do not use and stay well clear of an offer that is too good to be true! Getting a refund was even harder and I still don't have it!
Uuh guys, this wowcher driving lesson thing is a con. Talking from experience.
Further to this, all i can say is PLEASE just use local, independent instructors and find them by talking to people and taking reccomendations..these "DEALS" are not DEALS at all, theyre a way to draw you in, but you end up paying much more, financially and time wise
I cant cnfirm this is the case with this deal as i havent read the small print, but normally it works like this: you pay £19 for 4 hours your first lesson (1 hour) is included in this price 3 hours of your "deal" is then reserved for your test therefore, after the first hour you immediately start paying an inflated price when you finally do your driving test, the remaining 3 hours from the "deal" are then used then they tell you theres an additional "test fee" to use their car....
Unfortunately, they are actually underpriced. If lesson prices increased along with inflation they would be about £60/hr. It is believed that lessons cost us instructors approx £10/hr to complete, when taking into account supplies, yearly repair costs, fuel, memberships, licences etc etc....so ultimately I personally earn £11 per hour, which really isnt an amazing wage...not to mention the thousands of pounds it actually costs to become a driving instructor in the first place.........
Good stuff thanks op :)
The AA website had some tests, also it's worth checking your library to see if they have any of the books or DVDs to try at home. If you think of the imaginary car you're driving as a potential killing machine (which a real car is), Hazard Perception is basically looking for any idiot about to do something stupid which would make you react. I passed 1st time and I suggest get either a DVD/PC 'game', free app and/or try online tests and try, try, try again whenever you have the chance! Good luck
I did the test twice because I failed the first time by 1 mark in the question section. I then did 1-13 question sets on this website twice and then used the DVD for 2 hours to get some practice done each day for 3 days. I also did the mock theory question on my phone with the DSA app. Its worth the money and is very good. Some questions and even the images I found on the real test were on the app. Also make sure that you know all the signs. http://www.theorytestadvice.co.uk/highway-code/signs.php Here is where you can test the road signs. http://www.driving-school-beckenham.co.uk/mocktheory5.html Good luck. :)
Good luck for your next schedule... Congrats if you cleared it... Happy driving mate! :)
Glad it is and helpful for you... :)
back to £4.99 here @ Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00A4DG5C0/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
As some one who just passed my practical driving test last week, I can say the LDC videos on youtube are GOLD. Very informative and give you some excellent tips. Theory test is pretty easy, passed first time. Practical test is kind of luck. Manage to pass on the third try. First time I had an impatient driver behind me, he tried to overtake me on a roundabout causing him to harshly brake as I indicated to exit the roundabout. Second time I made a silly mistake. Third time I clipped a kerb, thought I failed and then he said i PASSED! I literally could not believe it. Good luck to all you potential new drivers and drive safe.
Wish I'd seen this sooner, back up to £15.31 now :(
This is a great disc for learning your theory, but before taking up the free lesson, check out if other local instructors have better deals available. LDC themselves offer new pupils 5 hours for £60 (https://www.learnerdriving.com/offers/5for60) but if you take this free lesson (which is only 1 hour) you will not be eligible for the 5 for £60, meaning 5 hours could then cost you about £80-£100 depending on your instructors regular hourly rate.
Heat added, although bought it through currys and able to pick up tomorrow.. :)
Hot, could do with this on West Yorkshire just agreed to buy my son his first 10
seems too good to be true and yet only 17 people have snapped this up. thanks for adding cash back info not something I've ever set up, might have to sign up :-)
Don't forget Cashback Quidco 4% Getpoundsback 8.8% Topcashback 5.05 (5.25 Cashback Plus)
brilliant if lived in south Yorkshire but heat added :)
Unless I'm missing something?? You can't tell whose going be teaching you? You buy the lesson(s) and they pass the booking on to a local school... I'd wanted to know who I was going with before paying, there are some totally hopeless schools around here...
company is Independent Instructors Network Ltd. they are in many places in UK see the link Your text here

My husband is a successful grade 5 driving instructor who gets lots of referrals from pupils and has a good pass rate.He also charges a fair price for lessons and does deals like this now and again.He has been instructing for twenty five years.He always gives a quality first beginner lesson even on a deal with the learner ACTUALLY DRIVING, [if they are not too nervous] with gear and clutch control,how to steer etc and people love it.He always hopes that people who buy these deals are not just trying to get cheap lessons and will carry on with him and have more lessons[not at inflated prices].All the money he gets on these cheap lessons just pays for the petrol only.Unfortunately only some stay with us .We are always pleased when this happens as lots are fickle and just go from instructor to instructor never learning much in the long run as not all instructors give a quality lesson.It is a skill for life after all.Out of a deal where 70 people came with us,about 20 stayed for more lessons.So there you are.Judge for yourselves.
This might be what's known as a loss leader.
cold - local and regional deal sux
Less than minimum wage = low expectations
I found my instructor through a groupon offer & he is fab!
That's a very good deal! Tnx op

You can get 3 hrs driving lesson in a superstore car park out of hours for free
Hmm... The instructors network site seems a bit useless, it doesn't tell you where the ADI drivers are actually located.
I am not surprised to see some people feeling they need refresher or confidence building driving lessons. Once you passed your driving test it is just the start, and while many people are ok, it is wise to see a driving instructor for a littl further guidance. Perhaps use your own car as well. http://drivinglessons.guru/
Now in my 70's and having driven for 50 plus years I thought I would see if I needed any revision. I took up the two separate hours offer and would recommend this to all.Not only was I reassured that my basic driving skills had kept up, I was encouraged and informed on how I could improve. This was mainly on observation skills, use of mirrors and maintaining the right speed for the road conditions, something I had neglected over time. This is an excellent AA initiative and should be encouraged.
Had mine today and have to say it was excellent, no catches whatsoever and the instructor was lovely :)
does it have a section for dont use you bloody phone when driving you muptard why are you in the middle lane of the motorway when the inside lane is clear indicators are not optional. use them other drivers are not pyschic why are driving so close you plank im not towing you any reason why you are driving 20 in a 60. next time walk it might be quicker. if not at least itll be quicker for the other 1000 people you are holding up one for audi bmw and 4x4 drivers - saying thank to people who give way should receive a thank you...this is plain good manners and is free 4x4 chelsea tractor drivers-please return these monsters-they are for off road driving not to drive little jonny 100 metres to school. we know you cant drive so dont get a 4x4 as thats akin to giving a loaded gun to a 2 year old
Cheers OP! That's the wife's birthday present sorted!
DSBS is totally RUBBISH! I tried to call 0844 4430 756 many times to redeem the voucher however it never went through nor allowed me to wait on the line. I left several messages and finally received a text asking me to email them. I emailed but got a response "We no longer cover East London due to the death of our instructor there Sorry John Perrins Driving Schools Booking Services 0871-900-6651" . It sounds like a ridiculous excuse to me as their website clearly states that driving instructors are available in lots of East London areas at present. It's very unlikely that they have only one instructor for such a big area. I called 08000805410 08000805705 03335660380 01743342267 many times, finally John answered the phone (guess it was the same person who replied my email). He asked if it was to redeem a voucher, when I said yes he told me the death of the instructor again, I said as I was about moving to the North and would not mind using an instructor there, he said the address on my driving license needed to match the address the instructor picks me up, otherwise they would not know if I was the same person on the driving license. That's a ridiculous excuse again! When I pointed out they could check the picture on the driving license he simply hung up the phone! I do not think this was acceptable - if DSBS is not prepared to redeem the voucher, they should not sell it on Amazon Local website in the first place! They are very rude too. Waste of time!
I've bought the voucher last night, after checking their website - it says they have instructors in my area. Called DSBS today to book the lessons and they say the website have not been updated in 5 years and they no longer have instructors here. Bit rubbish - call them first and check before buying.
sorry I mean two months ago.
order ed in Aberdeen still waiting for instructors
My wife went with a local instructor word of mouth,been doing it for years & all that, he was rubbish it took her a year with him, so you can't say word of mouth is reliable. I used Bsm I passed in a month really good but so could the instructors with this deal so voting hot
money talks £19 for 3 hours is a good deal. full stop
No, I'm not a salesman. I saw the offer and thought it was good as I am paying for my sons driving lessons at the moment and they are expensive compared to this deal.
You get what you pay for with driving lessons. Most agencies that offer huge discounts do so because their instructors are poor quality. Lessons may be cheaper, but it takes you so much longer to learn that the savings are negligible. These agencies tend to use driving instructors in training, who are looking to gain experience before becoming fully qualified. Look for the badge in the window, triangle means in training, hexagon means fully qualified. There are also qualification levels instructors pass through, which they should inform you of if you ask. Most instructors in these agencies, even fully qualified, have not attained further qualification levels. As they usually use pooled resources, cars etc, and the agencies advertise heavily on their behalf, there is less incentive for them to stand out as quality than for independent instructors, who rely on good reviews and word of mouth. I learned not so long ago,and you could spot these type of instructors easily. They spent most of the lesson sat parked up, explaining unnecessary details rather than driving. Cheap deal, and you might be lucky enough to get a good one, but I'd avoid.
WOW I remember paying £10 a lesson. Can't believe that it's ~£30 now... then again..
This is for driving lessons not pass plus! The pic in the op's description is a little misleading.
Portsmouth here too and another deal daughter will like. Thankyou
I did pass plus when I first passed my test (about 10 years ago though) and it reduced my insurance quotes from about £2000 to £1000. Even if it doesn't give you such a huge discount it is worth doing just for the night-time and motorway driving experience alone. I can't believe that we still let people pass a driving test in the UK despite not having any experience driving in the most dangerous conditions.
HOT I'd say... you'd probably get more than £45 knocked off your 1st insurance for doing this so I'd say it was well worth it.
They also drive to you and it doesnt come out of your hour, Ive already booked up my lessons =]
