absolutely awful !!!!!!
Iv never had anyone so rude on the phone when inquiring about lessons in my life she would not let me get a word in edge ways and when i tried to ask a question basically was completely over spoken and ignored you need to really brush up on your selling and phone technique love because the way your reviews are going your going to be out of business I will be sure to tell lots of my friends who are also looking for driving instructors at the moment in this area to stay well clear you !

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I'm disappointed in the impression of Karen's School of Motoring you now have due to the telephone call. Perhaps you could forward me details of when and who you spoke to so that I can investigate.

Rude...spoken to like i had dared to call her
First impressions is clearly not something Karen thinks is important. I called to enquire about lessons, she answered saying 'hello' so i naturally asked if it was the school of motoring and received a very blunt 'yes'. I said i was calling for info on lessons and all i got in response was a muttering of something and when i asked what she had said all i got was a raised voice of annoyance ' manual or automatic' . From previous feedback here it seems the norm to be dealt with like this.

I had exactly the same experience when I called them, so rude it put me off going with them, obviously no customer service skills.

Extremely Bad and No Loyalty to Pupils
I was a pupil with one of the instructors called Kevin who covers the Chelmsford area, who abandoned me a week before my driving test due to the fact that he didn't feel it was necessary to call me when he was outside my door and instead would wait outside and leave if I wasn't already waiting outside in the cold for him. The teaching was awful, he spoke over me, shouted at me and told me I should not dare book my test until he said so and when I was finally ready for my test, he refused to teach me any further because I did not wait outside for my lessons. He thought mobile communication wasn't necessary as it did not suit his terms of service. He also stated that he has never had to call a pupil as they wait outside for him no matter the weather, however he thought it was completely fair for him to turn up late, cut driving lessons short and miss lessons on short notice.
In addition, when I contacted the school regarding this issue, explaining the situation clearly, and stating that I had booked my test and wouldn't be able to find another instructor during the busy holiday period, they said sorry can't help you. You have to sort that out yourself as Kevin refuses to sit the test with you. I requested for my money back for my lessons and or for another substitute driving instructor to be provided but they refused to do that and left me to deal with the situation on my own. Since I had already paid the money for my lessons upfront, I requested for a refund on the lesson but they said that that's up to the individual driving instructor. So all in all, this is not a driving school that has any loyalty to their pupils or care about their progression, it is a simple money making process, as is any business but it is certainly not a school that cares about the instructors they bring on board to work for them. I am appalled by this treatment and lack of responsibility they have taken for the predicament that I was placed in by an instructor they sent out to me.
