Booked 30 automatic driving lessons. I struggled with a manual so switched half way through. DriveThruL were really accommodating as I needed two different driving instructors. I was with another driving school in East London and DriveThruL were definitely the better choice.
- 24/01/2017 -
Great customer service and they're really easy to deal with. Booked my test at short notice and they were able to fit the lessons around my work commitments. Passed and had all my lessons in a 3 week period.
- 31/01/2017 -
DriveThruL were great! Helped me get my head around parking and changing lanes because I found both very difficult. I got on well with my driving instructor, a friendly guy and he's laid back. We worked well together and I'm glad I passed.

Flex are one of the best driving schools in East London. My driving instructor was very patient. I'm a slow learner, it takes ages for me get things but my instructor didn't rush. I was ready to book my test after 45 lessons. I passed with only 6 minors,. Yes SIX! Really happy with Flex. Thanks alot!
- 20/02/2017 -
I really struggled with dual carriageways and I came to Flex for help. I already had lessons in the past but my previous instructor was not great. Flex were really good to me and I only needed a few lessons, to master the carriageway. Highly recommend if you are looking for a good instructor in East London.
- 27/02/2017 -
Booked driving lessons with Flex and I have no complaints. Passed at the second attempt. My instructor was good and he kept the lessons interesting.
- 02/03/2017 -
Learnt with Flex on an intensive driving course. It was a bit expensive, but it made me pass, so it's fine. Definitely give them a ring if you need your license quickly.

Description:
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.

GSM Driving Academy ReviewsGSM Driving Academy Reviews

Based on reviews found on Google and Yell.com, GSM Driving Academy is well thought of. On Yell.com, the driving school has 4.3 out of 5 rating based on 17 reviews and on Google, it has a 4.2 out of 5 rating based on 34 reviews.

Thanks to Ignite I passed my driving test at the first attempt. I didn't think it would be possible but they are really great instructors and they made sure I was well prepared and really confident before I took my driving test.
- 20/02/2017 -
Passed at the second attempt and across both tests I only had 6 minors and one serious. Ignite were great with me especially as I had to have a lot of time between lessons and had to rescheduled at short notice quite a few times too. 5 stars from me!
- 19/02/2017 -
Ignite taught me how to drive safely and for that I'm very grateful. Choose Ignite if you want to pass your test without spending too much. It cost me £670 in total and I was totally inexperienced when I came to them.

Description:

Infodrive School of Motoring is a driving school based in Newham. The school provides driving lessons across East London and according to its website, it’s London’s most successful driving school. They provide both manual and automatic driving lessons, with the choice of either a male or a female driving instructor. Their website mentions it teaches over 300 students a week and has over 200 customer reviews. For an introduction to the driving school, you can watch their Facebook video below.

This is a very good price and one of the cheapest we have found in East London, however the offer is only available to new customers who have not driven before. If the school feels you are too experienced, or you require less than 10 lessons, you will not be allowed to take up the offer. They also offer 10 lessons for £159.95 and again this great value, however it only applies to the first 10 lessons and does not apply to full license holders. Their website does not mention how much it will cost after the 10 lessons are completed. If you plan to book lessons with the company, call before and ask how much it will cost after the introductory offer is complete. Doing so will ensure there are no unexpected changes in price.

Infodrive were great at boosting my confidence and getting me ready for my driving test. I passed quite easily and I'm really thankful I choose them and in particular my driving instructor Ash. He's a great teacher and someone I would definitely recommend.

The best thing about learning to drive with Mutual, is the constant feedback you get. I started out with one of the national driving schools and I never really knew what I had to work on, from lessons to lesson. My driving instructor with Mutual really coached and directed me throughout the lessons and I felt very comfortable with him.
- 08/02/2017 -
I'd had lessons in the past but stopped driving due to family commitments. Mutual were great at improving my confidence and helping me tackle things I found really difficult. After 3 or 4 lessons with them I felt at ease and I only needed a few more before taking my test. They are a good company and one of the better driving schools in East London.
- 17/02/2017 -
I booked refresher driving lessons with Mutual as I needed some help parking and driving on the motorway. The lessons were fun and I never felt bored or uninterested, I only needed a few lessons to brush away the cobwebs and after 5 or so hours I was good to go!
- 01/03/2017 -
Take it from a very nervous driver, Mutual are great! I was super nervous because it was my first time driving. My instructor was very patient and didn't rush me. It took me ages to get confident but eventually I did. If yo're nervous as well, Mutual can definitely help.

Roadrunner Introductory Offer BannerRoadrunner Introductory Offer Banner

Based on their online reviews, the school has a reasonable reputation. On Facebook they have a 4.8 out of 5 rating, based on 19 reviews, however on Google they do not perform as well. They have a 2.3 out of 5 rating based on 14 reviews and there are a number of 1 star reviews on their profile. Their Yell.com profile has less reviews and it has a rating of 3.2 out of 5 based on 5 reviews. The comments on Google suggest there are issues with professionalism with some of their instructors and in such cases, we recommend booking a few number of lessons first, before committing to a larger block booking.

Pricing wise, Roadrunner driving school is very competitive and their introductory offers are very attractive. They often advertise their offers on Facebook and their special offer of 3 1hr lessons for £55 is great value for money.

If you have just turned 17, they have a buy one get one free offer on your first driivng lesson. This is a good offer for any learner driver just starting out and its an inexpensive way of getting to know your driving instructor.

One great aspect of Roadrunner driving school is their training videos. They give you a sense of the schools teaching style and give you a chance to meet one of your potential instructors. The videos show Wahid Ali – the owner and managing director of the school – going through some of the concepts taught during a typical lesson. The videos cover the cockpit drill, moving off and stopping, the cars’ controls, turning in the road and reversing around the corner. We have included the introduction video for you below.

The useful info section of their website has information on the different topics in the driving syllabus. You can find information on how to deal with roundabouts, pedestrian crossings and the history of the driving test among other things.

Great lessons, affordable prices and my instructor was really patient with me. A friend of mine recommended RoadRunner and after my first lesson with them, I knew it was the right driving school for me!
- 25/02/2017 -
I was really nervous before the start of my driving lessons. but my instructor calmed my fears and built up my confidence. Learning to drive with Roadrunner was a pleasure and I passed my test with only a few minors.
- 02/03/2017 -
Great company, one of the best independent driving schools operating in East London and I was recommended to Roadrunner by a friend of mine. I owe him a drink for this!.
- 06/03/2017 -
Needed my driving license within a month and Roadrunner were great. My lessons were intensive, really full on, but enjoyable. I felt confident within a couple weeks, and passed my test at the first attempt. My test was in Goodmayes and the route was simple.
