Sleeping driving instructor

Had 8 hours of driving which was ok but that all stopped because one of the driving instructor (who I will not be mentioning) fell asleep whilst I was driving. Which was shocking and extremely dangerous especially as I am still a beginner. The driving would keep falling asleep whilst I drove and would only wake up when I stopped really harshly. I could not believe it It was way too risky and extremely danger. Very unprofessional. The driver would also often go on his phone & scroll through Facebook whilst I was driving. Spoke to the manager about the falling asleep situation and she was lovely & understood. She also was upset. Overall not a great experience with this company. The instructor faking asleep was completely out of line. I will not be returning. To anyone planning to go with them, just be cautious.

Waste of time

Absolutely rubbish.. I had a man named Alan as my instructor, he was picked me up and took me to the same place every week, driving me to a place himself which wasted 20-25 minutes of my lesson every time.
I found him pushy, arrogant, and rude would not recommend him at all as I’ve heard the other instructors from Apollo are brilliant but he’s in it to rip you off.. now with a new instructor with a different company learned more in 3 lessons than I did in 20 with Apollo.

I passed recently with Andy, I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Very patient and teaches very well.

A great driving company

The apollo school of motoring was very helpful in allowing me to pass my driving test first time with 2 minors and to help me feel confident driving around the roads. My instructor adrian was great and the lessons he provided helped me to improve gradually to the position I'm in now. I would happily advise this driving company to my friends
