I chose Revolution Driving School after they were recommended to me by a friend’s daughter. I was a very nervous about learning to drive after years of telling myself I couldn’t do it, I decided to have a go and my Driving Instructor, Simon helped me keep calm with his patient and calm manner.

I found learning to drive easier than I thought, I beat my personal secret goal of when I would be passed by a year.

I normally took 1 hr lessons and found them to be great value for money.

In Summary. I had got to an age where I thought I would never drive. A year ago I decided it was now or never and set myself a target of passing my test before I am 40. Simon had been recommended to me, so I gave him a call. I was very nervous driver but Simon’s reassuring, and calm nature combined with his patient teaching methods worked perfectly. I would highly recommend Revolution and Simon to anyone who will listen.

I chose Revolution for my Driving lessons after I was recommended to them by a friend.
I’m a person who panics quite a lot if things don’t go as I thought they would so I really needed an instructor the had patience, my driving instructor Simon would help to calm me down and help me work through things step by step. Simon’s encouragement to try new methods really helped me to become a more confident driver.
I felt that my lessons were great value for money, I felt safe, comfortable and I felt like things got easier in every session.
I would highly recommend Revolution as a driving school to my friends and family because I was encouraged to try new things and make sure they are comfortable while doing it, very good at keeping them calm and reassuring them that everything is okay and that they can do it. My confidence on the road has significantly increased over the past few months and I can’t thank my instructor enough.

I chose Revolution driving school after I found them online, I’d been looking at lots of companies but decided on them after reading the reviews online and seeing their great pass rates.

My driving instructor was amazing at helping me to learn he taught me to drive in a way I felt comfortable and didn’t over complicate things. He was also willing to help me learn in a way which suited me rather than sticking to a rigid process. I really felt I was in control with what I learnt in my lessons. When I first started I didn’t know how I would take to learning to drive, I don’t like to get things wrong to be honest so I found learning a little more difficult in some ways but it was always made easy to understand and taught in a way that suited me to make it as easy as possible.

The driving lessons were great value for money too whilst they weren’t the cheapest I found online I really appreciate that I was taught to drive not just to pass my driving test.

I would 100% recommend Revolution to my friends and family for their driving lessons whether I they were looking to learn to drive, change instructor or have a few refresher lessons because I believe it would be very difficult to match or beat Revolution in terms of level of teaching you to drive safely.

I chose Revolution to take my driving lessons after reading the reviews on their website and Facebook page. I found learning to drive a challenge, but they really helped me by making sure I had feedback quickly allowing me to improve my techniques and focus on what I needed to improve on during the next session.

I actually had two previous driving instructors before I found out about Revolution. Compared to the other Driving School I found that Revolution was great value for money and their instructor to be more the helpful in helping me achieve my goals.

I would definitely recommend Revolution to friends and family, they were great value for money and John my driving instructor was very patient, helped my correct my driving and eventually helped me pass my driving test.

I decided to choose Revolution due to its previous excellent reviews. Ian helped me a lot through out all my driving lessons by not just teaching me the driving test routes but teaching me to drive through a range of different scenarios. Having never done lessons before this I was a bit cautious as I thought driving might be hard but I managed to pick it up rather quickly and passed just after 6 months first time!

All my lessons were definitely value for money, I had a range of different length lessons including 1 hour, 1.5 hours and 2 hours and definitely got out of them what I needed. I would 100% recommend Revolution especially with Ian to anyone and everyone who is considering doing their driving as I now have the freedom to go wherever and whenever I want to. Thank you so much!!

I chose Revolution for my Driving lessons because my sister and her friends recommended them, so I got in touch just before I turned 17. My Driving Instructor Ian helped me the most by making sure that I was always reassured and helped me stay calm. He made sure lessons were fun and enjoyable.

Before I started learning to drive, I wasn’t worried about learning to drive but I was worried about how I would be able to drive properly and confidently. Cheaper driving schools are available, but Revolution’s lessons are 100% great value for money. From the moment you’re picked up for your lesson you’re learning straight away until the end of the lesson, Revolution makes sure the sessions are tailored for you and at your pace, suiting your learning style, the best possible value for money.

I 100% would recommend and have already told my friends and family to go with Revolution due to the amazing value for money, friendly staff and you really are made to feel comfortable from the moment your first lesson starts to the very end.

I choose Revolution for my Driving Lessons as it looked like a great Driving School for me to gain the confidence to pass my driving test.

My Driving Instructor John was very kind and considerate and really helpful when I was learning the key skills for my test and beyond. I actually found Learning to drive a little harder than I thought especially with the observations and improving my awareness but my instructor broke it down so I could understand what was required and so I didn’t feel overwhelmed.

I would certainly would recommend Revolution to learn to drive with. The care, consideration and consistency of lessons and ensuring that I was improving skills each lesson it was second to none.

I chose Revolution to take my driving lessons after reading the positive reviews and receiving recommendations from friends and family. My Driving instructor Ian helped me become comfortable behind the wheel, I was a little nervous at the beginning as I thought learning to drive would be really hard but Ian helped me through the process and made it all much easier that I thought it would be.

I 100% felt the lessons were value for money as I learnt something each time. I’ve already stared recommending people I know to use the driving school for when they are wanting to learn to drive.

I chose Revolution to learn to drive with as I wanted a driving school that could help me start my lessons near my birthday and I wanted an instructor that I could get along with. I found the first few lessons more difficult but John my instructor helped me by going over the things I found difficult until I got them and could deal with tricky situations.

I passed my driving test much sooner that I expected and I found the lesson prices great value. I would certainly recommend Revolution to friends and family as john was a great instructor.

Courtney

I chose Revolution to learn to drive because a friend recommended them to me after she passed at the first attempt with them. I also read the reviews online which I was impressed with.

My driving instructor Ian really helped me. I find hearing through my left ear difficult but Ian was really understanding and made sure I was comfortable and left me feeling confident with my driving. I found learning to drive easier than I thought I would but I think that had a lot to do with my instructor who constantly reassured me. My biggest personal downfall is not believing in myself but Ian really did make me feel confident when driving.

I felt the lessons were excellent value for money, always learning or practising something that I felt needed to be improved on not just driving around.

I have already recommended Revolution to a friend who has started to learn to drive with them now. I would 100% encourage anyone that wanted a patient and understanding instructor who is aiming to make you a confident driver to use Revolution, I felt comfortable the moment I sat behind the wheel.
Although learning to drive in a Ferrari would have been nicer than the Toyota I had.

Samantha

Revolution came highly recommended to me by a lot of close family and friends after I had tried two other instructors who either let me down by not turning up or they made me lose confidence behind the wheel.

Whilst having Ian as my instructor I quickly started to relax, this made learning to drive a lot more comfortable and stress free than I had previously experienced. I had 1 hour lessons with Ian and I always walked away feeling like I made great use out of the time and my money was well spent.

I have already recommended a lot of friends to Revolution who have now gone on to pass and thanked me for the recommendation. If you’re looking for a reliable Driving Instructors that make learning to drive a fun stress free experience I would definitely recommend Revolution to you

Shanni

I was recommended by a friend to Revolution, My instructor Ian made me feel comfortable and helped me to relax when driving. This made learning easier as with other instructors’ I didn’t feel comfortable, this made learning to drive much easier than I thought it would be. I had lessons with another driving school before Revolution but felt that they didn’t have the patience or skill to help me learn the best way for me.

I mainly did 1 hour lessons but as I approached my test did 2 hour lessons to make sure I was as confident as i could be. I have already recommended Ian to other people including my brother and I really feel I got the best service possible.

Marc

I chose Revolution Driving lessons to learn to drive after I was recommended to them by friends and saw their clients passing on Facebook.

My Instructor Rob really made things easy for me keeping it simple, it made learning to drive much easier than I thought it would be and a lot less stressful. I felt the driving lessons were very good value. I know people that have purchased block bookings before but not done much driving or learning. I usually did 2 hour lessons and having had lessons with another driving instructor in the past I feel I learnt so much more with Revolution than in the same number of lessons with my previous instructor.

I am already recommending Revolution to people, in fact my wife will soon be learning to drive and hopefully with Revolution, mainly because of the value for money and the low stress method of teaching.

Leo

I chose Revolution for my Driving lessons as my brother had previously used them and passed with them. I originally thought I wouldn’t enjoy driving but as I started to enjoy driving I found it a lot easier. My Driving Instructor Ian helped me a lot by giving me step by step guides when I needed them on how to perform some of the manoeuvres which I found the most difficult.

I found the lessons to be great value for money and normally had one hour lessons.

I would definitely recommend Revolution to my friends and family as I really think they were great value for money. I wasn’t just taught to pass the test but to actually drive.

Charlotte

I chose Revolution for my driving lessons after I was recommended by a number of friends to do so after they passed with them. I could drive a little before I took lessons with Revolution but Ian my Driving Instructor helped my concentrate and relax during my lessons whilst remaining professional and informative. He was happy and able to help in any areas that I felt I needed to work on.

I had taken lessons with another driving school before I decided to try Revolution, I felt more at ease with Ian he was able to hold conversation and helped me feel less under pressure and more comfortable. I normally had 2 hour lessons which I felt although they are slightly more expensive than other schools were compared to my previous experience 100% worth the slight extra.

I would certainly recommend them to my friends and family, easy going, friendly, helpful and happy to spend time on what I needed not just to pass my test. I can’t think of anything they need to improve on.

Ebony

I choose Revolution Driving lessons to learn to drive after I read the Reviews on Facebook and Google. I started as a very nervous driver but my driving instructor Ian really helped me to build my confidence and make me feel really comfortable when driving. When I passed, I felt like I could drive straight away. I didn’t feel like I had lots of things still to learn to fit in as a driver on the roads.

Learning to drive wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be but I imagine it would have been worse had I not had help from my instructor to make sure everything was ok. The lessons were very good value I generally stuck to one-hour lessons but had 2hr lessons when I could.

I’d definitely recommend Revolution to my friends and family, they are friendly great value and not sure they could have done anything more to help me. I have in fact already told my sister to book her driving lessons with Ian.

Maisie

I chose Revolution Driving Lessons after being recommended to them by a friend.

After having had lessons with a previous company I was quite nervous about getting back into the driving seat. I need not to have worried as my Driving Instructor Ian was really friendly and made learning easy and the lessons enjoyable.

I would definitely recommend Revolution Driving Lessons as they made sure I was 110% confident in my driving even on unfamiliar roads. I now drive to Nottingham each day for work, I don’t think anything could improve keep up the good work.

Passed my test first time with so much confidence thanks to Ian! He always boosted my confidence and made me feel at ease whilst taking my lessons! Ian has always been reliable and taught me everything I needed to know to pass my test! I would recommend him to anybody that asked me! Than you Ian!

Paige – Mansfield

Chris

After being a bit sceptical about driving for many years I thought 35 was too late to start and was worried how I would cope with being behind the wheel of a car! How wrong was I! From my first lesson John was calming and professional while informative and made me feel very safe behind the wheel!

I can’t recommend both the school and John enough and thankfully I am now in a position to enhance my life due to the patience of this person. Your never too old to learn and if, like me you are worried/sceptical about learning then just give it a try! I can honestly say it’s the best experience! Thanks again John!

Caleb

Would recommend Ian to anyone, he never over reacted if I made a mistake and knew how to push me towards success. Also something I was personally worried about was not being able to have a conversation with my instructor, but being taught by Ian I didn’t have that problem.

Caleb – Mansfield Woodhouse

Sally

First time pass with Ian. I suffered with terrible nerves during lessons and I was made fully at ease by him. Would highly recommend. What a ledge!

Sally – Sutton in Ashfield

Leah

Learning to drive with Revolution was by far the best decision! Ian is an amazing instructor who genuinely cares about you, as well as wanting you to achieve your best and pass first time. I would highly recommend this driving school as it has really accessible way of learning and you always feel comfortable and confident from the beginning to the end. I had an amazing experience at Revolution, passing both theory and practical first time! I would not have been able to do it without the support of the school and I thank everyone, especially Ian, so much! I will actually miss the lessons.

Leah – Mansfield Woodhouse

Charlotte

Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor than Ian. Didn’t waste any time got straight to it, explained everything step by step and always had a laugh with me. Couldn’t have done it without him thankyou so much

I passed my test first time this morning with Ian, he’s been so brilliant and supportive towards me the whole time I’ve been learning with him, he’s patient and put up with how nervous I’ve been 24/7 and always managed to calm me down about driving, he deserves a medal for that!

I’d recommend anyone to learn with him as learning to drive has been such a good experience! Thank you again Ian!! I passed yesterday after having driving lessons on and off for years. I met Ian through my brother who also passed first time. He is a fantastic instructor doesn’t mess around and doesn’t let you say I can’t do it.

Absolutely wonderful. I always felt at ease during lessons knowing I had a really good and patient instructor to help me learn how to drive.
