I sent a enquiry for driving lessons couple of weeks back. A guy from customer care team rang me and booked driving lessons. Couple of days later the driving instructor rang me and said he can't do on that date because he was overbooked. Few dates later I did get an email from Management team asking if they can help. I spoke to a lady and booked the driving lessons again with a female instructor. Couple of days later the driving instructor rang me again and said the female instructor is not available and was trying to re-book my classes. I was confused. So called the customer care team again spoke to the same lady and she says the female instructor whom I have booked doesn't cover my area. So cannot go ahead with the driving lessons. This is totally unprofessional. The customer care team doesn't have access to the drivers calendar or doesn't know which area who covers which is annoying. Plz don't waste your time dealing with this driving school.

Rude and turning away business
I don't even want to rate this business but it won't accept my review without one, so hence reluctantly 1 star. I contacted this school with the intention of booking an intensive driving course for a third party. I was so offended by their rudeness, unhelpful responses and general lack of interest in doing business with me I decided to spend my money with a more customer focused driving school in the area, of which I am sure there are many. When I informed the intended recipient of the driving course, of how rude they were and the arrogant attitude toward what was a potential customer, she informed me that when she had enquired about booking a course herself, they said they were probably too busy?? Well if you are reading this I am sure you can make your own mind up.

MaggieM-18 is not giving a true reflection at all. This individual contacted the school for a 3rd party wanting to know about test centres and waiting times in the Essex area before she could book an intensive course for said 3rd party. She was informed that this was not controlled by the school and that it would be advisable to check online. Intensive courses were fully explained however, the individual was rude and obnoxious and just wanted to know why she couldn't be given the information by the school. At no time at all was anyone told that the school was too busy to help with their request. Saying that you decided to spend YOUR money elsewhere is incorrect as you have stated you were trying to book for a 3rd party therefore it is THIER money you were trying to spend. There is not a more customer focused driving school than Benson school of Motoring in the area which you would know if you were from the said area. Posting incorrect and false statements is not the way to do business.
