I was a very anxious learner and took me ages to feel confident about driving. My instructor, Matt did allow me to do it at my own pace while encouraging me to face my fears. I passed my test at my first attempt and I definitely recommend the school. Thank you!
Amir was a great instructor, explained everything very clearly and was very patient. He was able to pick up on things I was less confident on and helped me perfect them. And after our lessons, I passed first time!
I enjoyed interacting with Mutual team, they are true professionals. I definitely recommend Jake as an instructor. He is honest, clear in his training delivery and dedicated to help you achieve the best results.
Delighted to say I passed my test today! I want to thank Sam for fitting my lessons in at short notice and being incredibly patient and professional throughout the process. As someone who has had lessons on and off for several years with different driving schools, this was the first time I felt the confidence and support to stick with it and go for the test. Sam is a fantastic instructor who is incredibly clear in his instruction, never loses his cool and really wants his students to become better drivers. I wish Sam and the team continued success. Don’t go anywhere else for your lessons!
I recently completed a refresher driving course with Naadira. Naadira gave me valuable tips which helped me to become self-confident in a short amount of lessons. She is very professional, focused and at the same time very friendly and likes to put learners like me at their ease. Sam, the manager was always available and ready to help with any queries. I would recommend Mutual as their service is good. I didn’t give them 5 stars due to a lesson which they cancelled at the last minute as the instructor got stuck in traffic. I was not offered any compensation for the inconvenience. They, however, require a 72 hr cancellation notice from customers. I made sure to call them well in advance when I had to cancel one of my lessons.
I just passed my test on the 1st attempt and I cannot adequately express my gratitude to Nathan and Mutual! After spending hundreds of pounds on lessons at the AA, they took me on just over a month before my test. They managed to book lessons for me around my busy work schedule (rather than me fitting around theirs) and I learnt more from Nathan in the first hour than I did from my other teacher in a year!
He was thorough and rigorous in his teaching- which I really needed because I’d developed loads of bad habits!- but never made me feel stupid or nervous. He made me laugh even when I was frustrated with myself making silly mistakes and i found him to be very trustworthy and ethical.
Nathan gave me lots of really good, honest feedback and advice- he is someone with a real talent for teaching, which not everybody has. Yes, he was definitely focused on getting me through my test but equally, on making sure I became a good, safe driver.
Nathan is the absolute best- don’t waste your time and money going anywhere else.
Chris was my driving instructor from September to the beginning of the third (and final!) lockdown. He was extremely patient and had a calm way of explaining things clearly. I always felt at ease during my lessons despite being nervous about learning to drive! Sadly I’m moving abroad so am unable to complete my lessons but I would 100% recommend Chris and Mutual to anyone.
Terrible driving school. They don’t call you to remind you of lesson. Office rude. Just a money making business. People are busy and may forget an afternoon lesson. Just wasted 30 pounds on a lesson I missed and can’t get back. Rubbish rubbish rubbish. This place should be regulated. Very disappointed.
Matt is a fantastic instructor. He is always patient and friendly, and explains things clearly. He quickly spots areas that need work, and follows them up. Highly recommended!
I highly recommend Mutual Driving School. I got my licence in France more than 15 years ago and I was really worried about driving here in London. My instructor James has given me the confidence I needed to drive on the British roads within a few lessons. He is very patient and gives clear explanations and instructions. Thank you so much !
Just passed my Manual test today on the 19th Dec at Chingford. My instructor was Matt and honestly, he’s one of the best guys you could have as an instructor. Lessons were great, very clear and Matt has a good balance with letting you drive independently and assisting where necessary. Passed first time with about 26 hours with Matt which definitely shows something. I’d recommend Mutual Driving School to anyone.
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!
So, I have tried various driving schools and Mutual was the one for me. Reliable, best price and friendly! Thanks to Jimmy’s patience and perseverance I PASSED 1st time yesterday. Highly recommended!5*
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.
Great driving instructor, Brian was really helpful and patient. He taught me to be calm and brought out my confidence very well and this helped me to pass my test first time. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to drive and wants to pass their test first time.
I had my lessons with Yusuf , he was helpful and guide me patiently Through all my lessons . Although it was my first time driving manual car and the first time to drive in UK , I passed at first attempt he make everything things easy with clear and understandable way . Thanks to Mutual driving School and I Highly recommended it to be the place to take your driving lessons.
I recommend Mutual Driving School to anyone wanting to do their driving test in a good way. Especially Clifford, who is an incredible instructor. I give thanks to have had him as my instructor.
All the best!
Would highly recommend Mutual, first class service. My instructor Matt was just great, very professional and a top bloke!!! Thanks again
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.
