Welcome to RED. Learning to drive is not just about getting a driving licence but is an essential skill for life. That said, this is the “About RED” page so here are a few facts about our company.
We love cars, teaching and road safety! RED is one of the largest driving schools in the UK and is arguably the most progressive (how’s that for bragging?!). But seriously, the reason why our School has become so successful is because we deliver great value for our customers. Most of our Instructors undertook their training with us (we are also one of the largest training schools for Instructors in the UK). We emphasise to all Instructors joining RED how important customer service is. We want our customers to be completely satisfied and when things do occasionally go wrong, we strive to sort things out quickly.
Lessons can be booked online or through our call centre, which is UK based. You can call us six days a week but we prefer online booking and with “MyRED”, you can book lessons and manage appointments 24/7. We absolutely encourage our customers to pay RED for lessons so that we in turn can pay the Driving Instructor when the lesson has been delivered. If for any reason, you decide to cancel pre-paid lessons, we will refund you for all lessons not yet taken. Naturally, we can only do pre-payments paid to the Company not those paid directly to the Instructor.
We are certainly not trying to be the cheapest Driving School! We believe the old saying: “You get what you pay for” and are determined to ensure all our customers receive value for money. The Driving Standards Agency recommends 47 hours of professional tuition to pass your test. Today’s roads and the practical test is very different from that of a generation ago (parents please note!). Proper, structured training prepares you for the test in the most efficient way and RED will give you safe-driving-skills-for-life. If lessons look so cheap they are too good to true, they probably are!
We have a mission to teach you to safe driving skills. To deliver on this, we offer state-of-the-art online training via RED’s Road Brain Trainer that is proven to boost your chance of passing the practical test by 14%. Check it out! It’s free when you learn with RED – now that’s giving customer value!
Good luck with your lessons and remember when you are driving, it’s always better to get there late than not at all. Drive safe.
