Learning to drive is an exciting experience, but it’s natural to feel a bit nervous the first time you get behind the wheel. We offer everything we can to ensure you feel safe and comfortable when you learn to drive.

Learn to drive

RED offers a variety of different types of lesson – such as manual and automatic, or lessons in a foreign language – to make sure you have a positive experience (and the nerves don’t distract you from the road). Some people also feel more comfortable being taught by a female driving instructor, and if that’s how you feel then it’s worth giving us a call.

Because lessons are more productive when you’ve got a good relationship with your teacher, we want to make your learning experience as comfortable as possible. That’s why all of our instructors, regardless their gender, are DVSA registered, DBS checked and are passionate about driving and are good with people.

There are fewer female Driving Instructors in the UK than male, so driving lessons taught by a female instructor can be hard to find.

If your preference is for a female Driving Instructor as we’re one of the largest driving schools in the country we may be able to help-have a look online or contact one of our advisers on the number provided.
