Why RED?

Before you choose a Driving School or Driving Instructor, make sure you’ve got answers to these important questions.

How do you know that the Instructor is Trained to the highest standards?

RED is an established Instructor Training organisation and we’ve trained more than 10,000 ADIs. We train the vast majority of our Instructors ourselves, which means that we have control of the quality of the training. Our Instructors display their qualifications in the window of their training vehicle.

What reassurances do you have about the quality of the training you’ll receive?

RED Instructors abide by the DVSA’s code of Practice. RED Instructors are proud of the quality of service they provide, but don’t take our word for it see our latest feedback from customers on Trustpilot and The Review Centre.

How do you know you are in safe hands?

Your cash for pre-paid lessons booked with RED is held in an independent fund and only released to the RED Instructor once the lessons have been delivered.

Welcome to RED.

Learning to drive is not just about getting a driving licence but is an essential skill for life. RED is one of the largest driving schools in the UK and was voted the best National Driving School of the Year. The reason why our School has become so successful is because we deliver great value for our customers. Virtually all our Instructors trained with RED so we know and can personally recommend each of them. 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. You can call us six days a week but if you prefer, you can book online or through your personal access platform, “MyRED”. We strongly recommend our customers to pay RED in advance for lessons so that we in turn can pay the Driving Instructor on your behalf only when the lesson has been delivered. Funds paid to RED and unused are back by our MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. Naturally, we can only reimburse you for 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 and Vehicle Standards Agency recommends 47 hours of professional tuition to pass your test. The practical test today 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.

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.


All RED Driving Instructors operate within the framework of the DVSA’s Code of Practice.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and RED place great emphasis on professional standards and business ethics.
This industry code of practice has been agreed between the National Associations Strategic Partnership, RED and the DVSA.
