My driving instructor Denise was amazing, she taught me in a way that is easy to understand and was very patient with me. I always felt comfortable when on my lessons and i could speak to her about anything; such as what i was struggling with and wanted to go over more and improve on. Thanks to Denise I passed my test first time and feel safe and confident to now drive on the roads alone. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

After having two previous driving instructors and a year out from driving lessons I decided to give it a go one last time and with the help from Dee I finally passed my driving test first time! I enjoyed my driving lessons with Dee and she is a fantastic driving instructor, very helpful and I wouldn't have been able to do it without her :) would recommend to anyone.

Dee is a fantastic driving instructor and I would recommend her to anyone! Really enjoyed my driving lessons and miss having them now! Dee helped me with my theory and made sure whenever I needed a lesson was available. She is so nice.. Anyone looking to learn to drive should go with Rookie School of Motoring!!!! :)

Started lessons on my 17th birthday with Dee. She is a lovely instructor, very patient, calm and knows what she is talking about! Lessons were readily available for a time that suited me and made sure that I got the most out of my money and lesson. Passed theory test with advice and help from Dee, one hour of theory from a qualified instructor is priceless to ensure a pass! Dee made it simple and easy to remember. I truly believe I will be a safe driver for the whole of my life because of the way Dee taught me to drive from the start. I would recommend Dee and her team to anyone who wants to learn to drive properly to be safe on the roads once passed! It isn't just about learning how to pas a test, it is about learning to drive for life! There are no words to describe how Dee can teach you to drive, it is amazing! THANK YOUUUUUU

I could not have asked for a better driving instructor, Dee is a lovely and patient lady and best of all truthful. She believes in you 100% and pushed me to never give up. She taught me how to drive and not just to pass a test, thanks to her I now have my licence and feel confident on the road! If you are learning to drive I couldn't recommend Dee and her school highly enough. Thank you so much Dee!

Thank you so much DEE, I highly recommend any one looking to learn to drive please give this excellent instructor a call.

If you are starting your lessons for the first time I would highly recommend Dee and her rookie school of motoring!!! She is a great instructor in every way, extremely supportive and superb at teaching. Lessons were great and she helped me gain the driving skills i needed immediately. I passed my test first time at the age of 17 due to the teaching of Dee. Thank you Dee for the pleasant experience and for the license I now possess.

Finally passed my test first time after taking breaks and a bad first experience. I could not have done it without Dee's support, talks and confident boost... acting more as a reassuring mother figure and advice giver rather than just your average instructor. SO HAPPY to have finally got my licence and onto the next stage of life. You are a STAR and I can not thank you enough for all the hours you have put in to helping me achieve my goal. Much love xo

I just have to say 'WooHoo! Passed my driving test on my first attempt, which I can only attribute to the excellent tuition I have had over the past year from Dee! I have felt encouraged and supported at all points by someone who has taken the time to actually understand how I learn and in which areas I need that extra bit of input as a human being and not just someone who hands over money by the hour. Dee made the much appreciated efforts of getting to know me and taking responsibility for me as her student; knowing what rattles me, what helps, and what hinders. I am very lucky to have found an instructor who is committed to her role and strives to develop her students into both confident and competent drivers. Whom you choose as your instructor is vitally important to your future attitude and skills as a driver in my opinion. Dee is a dedicated 'Teacher' whose consistent enthusiasm and passion for driving is deeply contagious :) Thank you ! Thank you ! Thank you ! for making my learner driver experience so much fun Dee and setting me up for a future of safe and enjoyable driving :) it has been an absolute pleasure to have been taught by you.

I cannot praise Dee enough!! What an amazing driivng Instructor, whom I would now class as a friend. Dee is the loveliest person and instantly makes you feel at ease and I have recommended her to 2 other people who are equally impressed with her. I passed my test in 7 months and throughout Dee always encouraged me even when I doubted myself. During my time learning to drive with Dee I found out I was pregnant and her support was invaluable. I passed my test at 20 weeks pregnant and felt fully prepared thanks to Dee. I cannot thank you enough Dee and hope to see you with my little boy very soon.xxxx

Where do I start? I first met Dee when I finally plucked up the courage to start my driving lessons after I'd ran out of excuses not to. The first step of sitting my first lesson was the easiest, the hardest part was keeping them up! Thankfully I had the welcoming and friendly approach from Dee who very quickly helped me build road confidence and encourage a stronger more committed me. I cannot begin to explain what possibilities I now have after completing this journey with Rookie School of Motoring with a pink licence in hand. Dee really helped me through the times where I thought I'd never see my challenge through to the end and I felt she did in both a professional and gracious way. She was by my side right up to my test day.. even having my favourite coffee ready for me upon pick up which alongside the nerves of the day. really helps. Dee was so genuinely happy for me when I passed and so she should be as this was a massive reflection on her teachings. I'm pleased I searched the web and found Rookie School of Motoring as I not only found an instructor but by the end I made a friend. I really would encourage anyone who is looking for an instructor to just make a call and find out more.. I know all the instructors of Rookie share the same approach so whoever you manage to book in with I know you'll be in safe hands. I'll always stay in touch with Dee and who knows.. i'll prob soon be booking in for motorway training.. I don't think I can do the M62 alone!! Thanks again Dee.. you were a real star to me :-) xxxxxxx

I would highly recommend Dee and her motoring school. Like many other reviewers have said, Dee has a real charm and talent for making people feel at ease and building their confidence as a new driver. I had tried two other instructors with different driving schools before finding Dee and what a find she was! Unlike other instructors I tried, Dee is passionate about what she does and that makes a real difference. So if you want to learn to drive - then make the right choice and book Rookie - you won't regret it!!

If you're looking for a driving instructor in the Manchester area then I would definitely recommend Dee, an absolutely fantastic instructor!!!!!! She made me feel 100% confident in my driving and always made sure everything was crystal clear, was hearing "check your mirrors" in my sleep! By the time it came to my test I felt fully ready and passed first time, thanks so much Dee!!!!

I have absolutely no hesitations in highly recommending the amazing Dee to everyone wanting to learn to drive! Dee is the most patient, calm and supportive person I have ever come across. She explains things clearly and although I was a very nervous learner to begin with, I never felt under any pressure or stressed. Dee is a very talented instructor who is passionate about teaching people to be safe and confident on the road. I have really appreciated how flexible Dee is with lesson times and that she always made time to go through things until I was 100% comfortable. In the run up to my test, Dee was wonderful at keeping me calm and helping me to feel confident. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my lessons and am just over the moon to have passed first time!!! I feel really confident about driving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dee - see you soon for my motorway training!!! :)

I have been having driving lessons with Dee for around 10 months (with a 3 month break in the middle for health reasons – so more like 7 months really!) I passed my test two days ago with 5 minors. Dee is a really great instructor. I always got the feeling that she really respected me as a student, and I know how much she believes in treating her students like real people. For this reason I'm sure she gets the best out of everyone she teaches. I had never sat behind the wheel of a car until I got into the car with Dee, and I can't believe that less than a year later I am feeling really confident about being a safe (and now licensed!) driver. Her advice was always spot on and generous (including advice for my partner with whom I practised throughout). Especially leading up to the test, about which I was very nervous, Dee gave me great advice and made me feel really good about my driving which I think was a big reason why I passed first time. If you want an instructor who isn't going to make you feel stupid or bad about your ability or the speed at which it takes you to learn, Dee is a great instructor to go for. I also get the impression that the way Rookie works as a company as a whole is great – a few weeks before my test I had a mock with another instructor which was a really great way to build up my confidence and gain experience.

A massive thank you to Dee for trainin me to become a driving instructor. Only 30% of poeple who train to become a driving instructor pass within 3 attempts...i passed first time(grade 5!) and only 2% do that. A reflection of Dee's fantastic teching skills both as a driving instructor and as an Ordit qualified driving instructor trainer! cheers Dee.

Having had previous lessons with an independent driving instructor and not feeling i was getting anywhere switching to Rookie School of Motoring was probably the best thing i could of done. Thanks Dee !!

A great big thank you to Kelly, I Have tried 3 previous driving instructors with other driving school and they made me feel very uncomfortable . Kelly made me feel very comfy and made everything sound so simply. Every lesson was very relaxed and a great way to teach. I passed 1st time and would recommend Kelly to everyone. Thank you

Victoria Norbury - 07/10/2012 | report this review
It would probably be Dee. I really can't thank you enough and I enjoyed every lesson right through to passing my test first time. Dee is amazing and really goes out of her way to help you along, from picking me up at the break of dawn just so the roads were relatively clear to eating into her own time explaining things to me until I had a good understanding of what I needed to know. She doesn't just teach you to pass the test she actually teaches you to drive and be confident in what you are doing, by doing this I felt the actual test was a walk in the park as I dealt with much tougher roads and situations in the final few lessons with Dee than I did on the test. I always felt she knew where I was with everything as well or everything she did there was a reason for it, she never gave me too much for me to handle but always kept pushing to the point every lesson was a challenge but its one you always accomplish as she knows where you're at with it so the confidence slowly builds. I now want to continue with Dee and do some advanced drving to progress even further which I'm looking forward too. I can't thank you enough Dee and I'll be seeing you again soon.

Thank you Kelly!! I had a previous driving instructor at another school who gave me nothing but a fear of the road. Kelly almost knew all the problems I had during the first lesson I has with her. She brought the confidence in me teaching how to handle different road scenarios and manoeuvres in simple and in a way I cannot forget forever. I used to be afraid of ‘parallel parking’ and ‘big round about’ amazingly after her couching these were the ones I had for my practical exam on which I passed with confidence. Kelly, you are a life time coach; I can hear your instructions today even after I have my full driving licence. Thank you for that dear!

Before i started to learn to drive with kelly, i had one previous instructor, they taught me nothing and i had no confidence. When i started with kelly i was a nervous wreck and had no road awareness! Fortunately kelly changed all of this and turned me into a safe and confident driver.

I just passed my driving test today, with the help from Dee as my instructor for 10 months. Through difficult days and good days she has kept her good mood, positive attitude and knowledge at 100% each lesson and taught me to drive in an excellent way. She is a very realistic and fair instructor, she looks at her job as a service - a service she performs extremely well. She accomodates the lessons to suit your schedule and no time is a bad time for her it feels. I wouldn't even dream of going through a crash-course, I now feel competent and secure on the roads much thanks to Dee. There is a reason why she has got sooo many professional qualifications; the lady sure knows how to teach people how to drive in a safe manner, but also with confidence. I am sure I will still hear her voice next to me reminding me to R.E.A.D T.H.E R.O.A.D and take my time whilst I am now moving out ont he roads on my own. Would highly recommend taking lessons with Dee! Thank you for 10 fun months! x

I started my driving lessons with Catherine in 2009 and she was absolutely fantastic. Even though I was extremely nervous, she made me feel relaxed and helped me gain confidence to pass my test... The amount of lessons I had with Catherine wasn't any way near how many some of my friends had had with other driving schools and I just thought that they were just trying to make more money. Whereas Catherine always thought about every lesson making it worth my while!! I passed my test 2nd time not long after and was so happy!! I kept in touch with Catherine and recommended my friends to contact her cause she was so FAB! Unfortunately I lost my license because of insurance reasons (It wasn't because of my driving!) and I was so gutted. I rang Catherine about 2months ago and asked for her great help once again to get my license back! Without hesitation we booked a lesson in that night and off we went. I had the minimal amount of lessons needed and we booked my test - she was always checking for cancelations for me as she knew I wanted to get it over with!! After 6 weeks of refreshing my memory with it all, she waited patiently at the test centre whilst I did my test. AND I PASSED! We were so happy and wrote my name in her book of 'passed students' with the date by it. You'd be mad not to go with Catherine at Rookie Red for whenever you need help with lessons or passing your test, she's the best. I cannot thank her enough for her support and faith in me that I could do it again!!! Thankyou :)

I can not thank the wonderful Dee enough, passing my test will change my life in so many ways! and its all down to the the fact that Dee and her fellow instructors Mike and Kelly are so knowlegable, patient, kind, and always put there pupils first. Where other instructors and driving schools fail is due to how much money they can make, DEE and Rookie Red Driving School are not like that, Dee cares about you, and your future driving experience, nothing is too much trouble and Dee has gone out of her way for me on so many occasions.

I recently passed my theory test and all thanks to Dee she has helped me understand the rules of the road and any questions i had she was there to answer them. I have so much confidence behind the whel and feel relaxed. Dee leant me a disk which helped me a lot with my theory as it covered everything even had sections like road signs, motorway rules things like that. I look forward to my lessons as i feel at ease and do not feel that if i slip up ill get shouted at like previous instructors. Some people think instructors are just there to teach you to drive this is not true Dee has helped my with every aspect of driving inc theory. THANKS DEE FOR EVERYTHING

I passed my test today first time! I still can't believe it! But I can't put it in words how grateful I am to Dee for the amazing lessons, support, assurance and knowledge she has given me. Dee is very patient and has this amazing way of explaining everything that it just clicks and off you are on your way to be a very safe, competent and a confident driver. I enjoyed our lessons thoroughly. Dee is very friendly, patient and fun. On the day of the test when we got to the test centre I was so proud to have Dee next to me because with all the time she had spent training me I knew I had nothing to worry about as Dee had trained me for everything and anything that would be thrown at you when it came to driving. That boosted my confidence to no end! The time with her been invaluable really. I would highly recommend her. I am a girl who was scared of driving! Don't even think twice! Take my word! You won't regret it! Good luck and see you on the road soon :) xxx

When I first started my lessons with dee I had already had 4 instructors and my confidence was so low I nearly gave up on driving for good! Then someone who I new passed and I was told about rookie then came along (dee) and changed my life, she gave me the confidence to believe I could pass my test and that I had just as good a chance as everyone else! Dee was always there whenever I needed my lessons what ever time I was available. She its such a great teacher and person and I am so glad I found her!

I found this driving school brilliant, i was put in for my test as soon i was ready, i passed after just 3 months of lessons, they provide a great price and a massive reduction compared to other schools who may make you take more lessons than needed, i had the instructor kelly who was brilliant, fully enthusiastic and passionate to her job and pupils, i recommend this school to any learner for a quick and fun experience and a pass at the end.

I decided to use Rookie Red Driving School after reading several positive reviews on the internet. The positive reviews were well deserved. The instruction by Kelly was second to none. I passed first time after only 3 months of driving lessons with no other tuition/driving. Learning to drive these days is costly, however, Rookie Red Driving School ensure that you are put in for your test as soon as you are ready. Kelly provided a professional and friendly service and I would not hesitate recommending the school to my friends and family.

Absolutley fantastic driving school. I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor than Dee. She is a wonderful teacher and a good laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the lessons i had and managed to pass my test with 0 minors. I feel more than confident that i can now take to the roads on my own. Thanks Dee :)

I cannot praise Dee enough. I came to her after failing a test and getting nowhere with a previous instructor. I passed 1st time with Dee. She has the patience of a saint and great teaching ethics. I can't wait to start driving safely. Passing is the best xmas pressie ever, thanks Dee x

Just passed my test first time!! I can't quite believe it yet but I would like to say a huge thanks to Denise for the first class tuition she gave. She creates a calm atmosphere for your lessons and gives you the best possible help to not only get you through your test but also drive in the real world. Kelly also took me for a couple of lessons and I would like that say thanks as the tuition she gave was also first class. I would recommend this driving school to anyone!! Cheers Dee! :)

I just passed my test thanks to amazing Cath! I've had 3 instructors before her and all of them either ran away from me or didnt really bother teaching me to drive properly. Cath is a perfect teacher as well as a lovely person. She was very flexible with timing and location. I enjoyed all my lessons with her and will actually miss her loads :( definitely will recommend RSOM to everyone! xx

Big thanks to Dee, was very, very nervous when I first started out, but she made me feel really at easy, courtesy of being really friendly and chatty in the car.

Kelly was my 4th driving instructor but by far the best. I used to get extremely nervous, especially during tests and used to make stupid mistakes because of it. Kelly helped me to overcome my nerves and build my confidence - doing two mock tests with another Rookie instructor (Cath) also helped me practice controlling my nerves in a test situation. I only had a few weeks of lessons before I took my first test with Kelly and passed with only 2 minors!

I passed my driving test after a beautiful journey. I am very pleased with all my driving lesson as Cath is fantastic teacher. I think â€œRookieâ€ is one of the very few driving schools in UK that organized a mock test after 10-15 lessons which is very helpful to work on mistake as well as build confidence. Cath you are very friendly and honest with all the advice. She is very flexible with timing. She fit all lessons around work.I really respect her for that. She always strengthened my confidence and was always more confident in me then myself.I would recommend Rookie driving school â€œCathâ€ to everyone, THANKYOU VERY MUCH CATH LOVE U !!!!

being a sixty year old,i didnt think i would be able to learn to drive.but having been widowed i needed to be independent and safe,and so i went to dee at rookie for lessons.both theory and practical were made so easy for me,with her kindness and patience i managed to pass both .thank you dee.

I passed my driving test first time with Dee in March 2009. Dee is a fantastic driving instructor, patient, supportive, helpful, calming the list is endless!! I have and will continue to recommend Rookie School of Motoring because to me they are the best. I wish Dee and the gang lots of luck for the future. You did it guys!!!

As a particularly nervous learner I was always put completely at ease by Dee at Rookie, who was endlessly patient. Very thorough lessons, lots of guidance and you are taught everything you need and more to equip you to drive by yourself. I passed first time in May this year and haven't looked back since.
