They have a special deal available where you can book your first 5 hours for £95.00. This works out at £19 per hour. The deal is only available in a manual car and you must be a novice driver to book it. They explicitly state the deal is just for beginners, so if you’ve had previous driving experience you may not be eligible. Beginner drivers can also book their first 10 driving lessons for £180.

Booked driving lessons in Ilford with Wise Driver and I really enjoyed my time with them. My driving instructor was friendly, really relaxed and very patient with me. I needed lot of time and he didn't rush. I struggled with the hazard perception but slowly he got me up to a good standard, Passed in 6 months too.
- 31/01/2017 -
My previous driving instructor was not the best so I decided to find another driving instructor instead. I contact Wise Driver and they were really pleasant and professional so that gave me a lot of confidence. Once I started my driving lessons with Mahesh, it was clear he knew his stuff. He had me on the back roads first to get me used to the car's controls before I started tackling the busy roads.
He's very patient and super reliable too, so all in all no complaints.
- 08/02/2017 -
Passed first time thanks to Mahesh and the Wize Driver team. I got on well with him and can't thank him enough. It took me a while to get to test standard but that's because I kept taking breaks between lessons. Loved his simple explanations and wealth of experience.
- 18/02/2017 -
I live in Ilford and booked driving lessons with Wise Driver after reading the testimonial page on their website. They had lots of reviews from other students and I think that said a lot about the driving school. I realised from my first lesson that the standard of teaching was going to be good. Mahesh is a great instructor he has lots of knowledge and patience as well. Would recommend if asked.

GSM Driving Academy Available CoursesGSM Driving Academy Available Courses

Established in 1977, GSM Driving Academy is one of the oldest running driving schools in East London. The school covers the entire East London area, it has male and female driving instructors and provides both manual and automatic driving lessons. They also offer a wide range of courses including motorway lessons, night tuition and driving crash courses.

GSM Driving Academy Teaching VehiclesGSM Driving Academy Teaching Vehicles

GSM prices fall in the average for the East London area. They have good introductory offers, for example 4 manual driving lessons for £56 and this works out to be £14 per hour. Prices are split by location and type of vehicle, but it is relatively easy to find the lesson type you are interested in and how much you will pay. Before booking it is worthwhile thinking about what time of day you would like to have your lessons as their prices differ between daytime and evening. For example a standard block booking of 5 lessons costs £90 on a weekday and £95 on a weekend. Your choice of payment method also influences the amount you pay. If you pay by Paypal the weekend block of 5 lessons will cost you £100, instead of the £95 mentioned above.

Student Who Passed Their Driving Test With GSM Driving AcademyStudent Who Passed Their Driving Test With GSM Driving Academy

Their clear pricing structure also makes it easy to calculate the total cost of your driving lessons. The pricing page clearly state the price of introductory lessons and what the cost of lessons will be, once the initial driving are complete. Many other driving schools in the area do not advertise how much it will cost once the introductory deal has ended and this can lead to surprises for the student.

On Facebook, GSM have 1,044 likes and 1010 followers. Their profile highlights their recent passes and their wall contains messages from ex-students.  You can’t leave reviews on their page, however you can post on their wall if you need to. The school does respond to negative feedback left on their profile too. We have seen posts where students have complained, a representative of GSM have responded and later the student posted a positive comment once their issue was resolved. Seeing the company respond in this way shows it takes customer service seriously.

The school also has a twitter profile however it does not seem to be active. The profile has 148 followers but has only tweeted 3 times. The last tweet was sent in 2014, so it is safe to say it is not a profile they are keeping updated.

I really enjoyed learning to drive with GSM. I passed at the second attempt with only one minor and it's all down to my instructor Harpreet. She was super patient with me and gave me lots of confidence, I highly recommend!

Learning to drive with Xpress Driving School was a pleasure. I had a good time and passed my test at the second attempt. My driving instructor was easy to get along with and his teaching style was really easy to understand. Would recommend if asked

I booked an intensive driving course in Ilford with Xpress Driving School and I'm happy I did. From the call the school was very professional and I felt like I was in good hands. My driving lessons were enjoyable and I found it easy to get on with my driving instructor.
- 15/02/2017 -
Passed my driving test at the first attempt thanks to Xpress. It took me 40 lessons to feel ready to book a driving test and after a few more lessons just before it, I took it and passed. Would highly recommend Xpress driving school and if you live in Ilford they are one of the best driving instructors in the area.
- 25/02/2017 -
I enjoyed learning to drive with Xpress driving school. My instructor was punctual, professional and knew the Ilford area really well. I passed at the second attempt and would recommend.
- 09/03/2017 -
To say I was nervous is an understatement. I found it really difficult during the first few lessons, but my driving instructor calmed my fears and improved my confidence. Slowly we worked on things such as junctions, roundabouts and the dual carriage. Couldn't be happier with Xpress and I agree they are one of the best driving instructors in Ilford.
- 24/03/2017 -
Top driving school in Ilford. Can't speak of them highly enough and they are really well run. At times I thought I wasn't going to pass, but with their assistance and constant support I got through it and now I am a proud driving license holder.

I started out very nervous but slowly I got to grips with things with the help of my driving instructor Muj. He's very patient and understanding and never rushes. He made me feel confident right from the start and he's one of the best driving instructors in Ilford.
- 31/01/2017 -
Sky Driving have to be one the best driving schools in East London. Shabnam is a great instructor, she's really easy to understand and I got on well with her. It wasn't easy, I take ages to get the hang of things, but she was right there with me every step of the way. Super punctual and organised as well and this definitely helps.
- 03/02/2017 -
Passed at the third attempt but that's not down to Muj, just that I made silly mistakes. Muj is a good instructor, he's very experienced and friendly too. This would have been a 5 star review, just that he had to rescheduled lessons a couple of times.
- 25/02/2017 -
My instructors name was Shelley and she's was great with me. She's calm and very laid back. I don' remember her panicking at any point during my lessons, even though I did some crazy things looking back on it now! I over her open and friendly personality and I've already recommended her to my friends and family.
- 14/03/2017 -
Happy I passed my test, Sky are a good driving school and my instructors was good too. He knows the Ilford area well, he took me through Goodmayes really early to get me used to the test route and I'm happy with my choice.

Loved my lessons with Alfie's Driving School. I called them after reading their reviews, what a great decision! The customer service is great, I felt like they really did care and I don't have the words to describe Leon! What a great instructor.
- 12/01/2017 -
Passed my test in Loughton, only had 4 minors and that's down to Alfie's. I booked the beginner package and to be honest I probably needed more lessons but booked a test anyway. I was really nervous before my first lesson but after a 2 or 3 lessons I was already feeling really confident. Definitely contact them if you want to pass your test.
- 15/01/2017 -
Highly recommend, The best driving school in Romford and I've already made sure my sister learns with them too.
- 24/01/2017 -
Went to Alfie's after 20 hours with RED and feeling like I wasn't progressing. I requested a female driving instructor and got Claire. She's a great instructor and someone who's really friendly and easy to get on with. She'll never judge you even if you make a mistake, I made lots btw!
