Overpriced, rude and unprofessional

Do not get lessons with this woman. She is rude, aggressive and overpriced. On lessons she would be on her phone, talk bad about other learners and offload personal problems with her husband, even crying on some occasions which made me feel very uncomfortable. She would shout if you did something wrong and would expect you to know how to do manoeuvres without instruction. She would run errands in lesson time like going to friends and family members homes to drop items off but stay inside for 15/20 minutes while I waited in the car. She was late picking me up on the day of my test and was angry with me when I didn’t pass first time. I would dread my lessons with her. Go elsewhere!!

POSITIVELY DO NOT BOOK DRIVING LESSONS WITH HER

1
I don't know where to begin. 1. She does not teach anything whatsoever. She tells to park the car with absolutely NO instructions just a simple 'park the car' and when you can't do it is rude and belittle you, acts as you are dumb. She does this with every Manoeuvre. 2. She literally closes her eyes and goes on her phone paying no attention to you, answering phone calls majority of the time 3. running her own errands, like picking up her eggs from her friends, makes you wait in the car for ages on end with no apology or anything.
Honestly do not book lessons with her there are so much more things i could say. i don't even know how she allowed to teach still.

not waste your money or time

Absoultely terrible. I have had two other driver instructors and comparing them with her, shes awful. She just doesn't teach you, she expects you to figure it out. She once made me wait outside for her in the car mid way my lesson as she took her kittens to the vet for an hour. She came back with no apology or giving me an option to go home, luckily i had nothing to do after. She's rude and talks behing her students backs. Answering calls and arguing with her husband. running errands from time to time. DO NOT WASTE your money on her. The worst is that she'd fall alseep for a few seconds sometimes. I understand that its hot and sunny sometimes and driving around makes you really sleepily but its unexpectable really. Your new driver and your life is on the line. But other than that her cars are good.

Awesome!

After not feeling comfortable in a manual, I started up lessons with Carol in an automatic. She is an incredible instructor who taught me everything I needed to know for my test. I passed my test on the first try with only one minor! She is kind and explains what you need to do/ have done wrong in a easy to understand way. I would highly recommend her!

A very happy customer!

I managed to pass second time with Carol's schools of motoring. As an instructor Carol is patient and easygoing, but also firm when needed. I cannot recommend her highly enough - especially as someone who had a bad experience with driving lessons 6 years ago and lost my confidence. I felt well supported with her by my side and will definitely be returning to her for motorway lessons in future!
