I passed my driving test in barking with my amazing instructor Jimmy. When first starting I had zero experience on the... roads. My instructor really took the time to understand how I processed things and in turn personalised his response in the way he taught me which really helped me grasp certain concepts quickly and easier, building my confidence. Communication is also great, as Jimmy and the team planned lessons which best suited my timetable in advance 🙂 I highly recommend Mutual Driving School!read more

Learnt to drive with Mutual and was impressed by their highly experienced instructors. They put me at ease and taught... at a speed which was appropriate for a new driver. They have a friendly approach and are very reliable with regards to keeping/changing appointments. Their cars are very clean and new. I'd highly recommend them. A million thanks for all the lessons which allowed me to pass my test.read more

I passed my driving test first time thanks to my amazing instructor Jake. I was on a bit of a deadline to pass (due to... moving house and having a baby) and Jake was very accommodating in fitting in all my lessons around my work hours. He was an excellent instructor, very thorough and calm and ensured I was excellently prepared for the test. I chose Mutual because of their excellent google reviews and I'm so glad I did. Would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone considering to learn to drive in East London. Thanks a million again Jake! Annaread more

I just passed today on 8th Jan 2020. I still can't believe it. Thank you, Jake.I tried other driving schools before... Mutual Driving School. One instructor was very late (60 mins+) multiple times. Another instructor made phone calls during my driving lessons. After multiple bad instructors, I quit driving. I was fed up.In July 2019, someone recommended Mutual Driving School to me. She'd just passed with them. I decided to try driving again, so I booked a trial lesson. Jake, my instructor, was positive about me passing before the theory expired (Feb 2020). He was right. I passed today!Jake was a great instructor. He adapted to my nerves, handled my social anxiety well, and shared positive words when I was too hard on myself. I highly recommend him, especially if you have driving anxiety, generalised anxiety, social anxiety or you're an older driver.Good luck to any learners reading this. The hard work is worth it in the end!read more

Mutual driving is a professionally run and well-organised driving school with exceptional driving instructors. So much... so that I travelled all the way from Thornton Heath, Croydon to Mile End for my lessons.My assigned instructor James is the best driving instructor I’ve had to date and gets the best out of his students regardless of their skill level.I’d recommended this driving school to anyone in the London and Greater London area. I say this with pun intended, the felling is definitely Mutual 😉read more

I had a refresher driving lesson with Sam and I was very happy with the service. It had been many years since I last drove so i was quite nervous but Sam was very friendly, patient and put me at ease right away. I felt that I was in safe hands and Sam was very professional and paid close attention to how I was driving but in a way that didn’t make me feel like I was being judged/under any pressure. It was only 1 hour but I felt like I learnt a lot. Also very professional with the new covid rules, making sure both wore masks and using hand sanitiser straight away. I would definitely continue lessons with Sam but unfortunately I have had to pause lessons for now due to personal circumstances. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for driving lessons!

Had a great learning experience with Jake who is a very patient and observant instructor. Passed in first attempt but wasn’t surprised as Jake prepared me really well. Would recommend highly.

I had the best experience ever and it was all down to the instructor really, to be brutally honest. MATT was patient, fun, professional at all times, didn’t make me waste time with anything, instructed me with every detail possible re the test, how to avoid certain tricks, how to be cool during the test and most importantly he’d always tell me what the best course of action would be and let ME decide which way I would like to have the lesson done. He puts the pupil on the first place and is GENUINELY interested and keen to see you pass your test as soon as. If you are reading this review until here then just try and get your lessons with HIM or someone just as good cause it won’t regret. Thank you, Matt. You only mentioned this review at the end of the test and never asked again ever, and it took me a year or more to do it because I am a lazy ass LOL. Apologies. You’re the best.

I want to thank James for helping me through the process of taking my practical test. He is very kind and his way to teach is exceptional. He always pushed the best of me making me feel confident while guiding me in the things I needed help with.
Highly recommend, I had a great experience. I have my test re-booked because of Coronavirus and he made the most to accomodate me in a slot to take my test. Always punctual, always there and taking all the safety considerations through the pandemic. Thanks a lot James.

I passed my driving test on my 3rd attempt on 14th September. My first two fails were mostly down to nerves! My instructor Leah was amazing. She’s one of the sweetest down to earth people I’ve ever met. Without her patience, guidance and gently pushing me when I was throwing a strop because I’d stalled/couldn’t work out roundabouts or forgot to check my left mirror for the millionth time, I never would have passed. Having said that I will miss my lessons and having a good laugh/gossip every week while witnessing first hand some of the worst driving in London from other motorists! I definitely feel prepared to take on the driving world! Would 100% recommend both Leah and Mutual ❤️

Peter is a brilliant instructor, who struck the perfect balance between teaching and guidance, and letting me get on and drive – wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others, and appreciate his patience and positive, professional manner no end!

Best driving school on this planet . I’m an ex student of Russel and Clifford but I stopped taking Lessons in 2012 because I was facing some personal household difficulties.

What an incredible driving school with fantastic instructors. It’s not a hype they really do get you to pass first time, I’ve walked away not only having passed my test (1st time) but knowing how to drive well and safely. Jimmy is a fantastic instructor he truly cares about his students and making sure they pass not just for the sake of passing but being safe and considerate drivers. I can’t recommend these guys enough. So, thank you Sam, Graham and of course Jimmy for all you help and patients. Now, don’t forgot to book your holidays through me

I would like to say thank you to Jimmy for getting my daughter through her driving test. Jimmy was very patient and made her feel at ease when she was anxious about driving.
