    BSM ALL THE WAY.
    Sorry I don't remember how much my lessons were, probs around £22ish an hour although at the end when I wanted 2 last lessons before my test, my instructor gave me 2 hours for £30.
    I can only speak for my instructor but he was an amazing teacher with a great pass rate.
    I highly recommend BSM-helped me pass first time

    EDIT: why neg me for my opinion..?

    Personally, I'd go for an independent driving instructor, from recommendations. With big companies (AA, BSM, Red) it's usually hit and miss whether you'll get a good instructor.... plenty of horror stories in this forum about them too!

    I did 3 or 4 with the AA but it was awful. She was terrible. Have no idea how much it was.

    I'd go for an independent instructor :yy:
    Costs £25 p.h or £210 if you book a block of ten. There's no competition up here really so it's pretty pricey, some instructors charge £30!

    I've had two driving lessons so far.. i'm a pro. Driving off with the handbreak on, going "AHH" every time there's a car behind me and driving in to the next lane when trying to change gears... :P but my instructor is really nice about it all. He's a local, so you wouldn't find him handy being in London and all..

    I'm £28 per lesson but he taught my dad, aunt and uncle and they all passed first time.

    Don't go just for the cheapest, look at their success rates and stuff too.

    BSM are great! My instructor is really lovely, and he will give me a lesson whenever I want, even if he has to rearrange his other work for it.

    You can currently get 10 lessons for £199, or my instructor says he will give me lessons provately for £20 an hour.

    I've booked my first lesson with BSM, and in my area, its £21 per hour, but you can do a block booking. They gave me student discount aswell, cos it would have been £23 originally!

    Independant instructors all the way! Ask your friends who they would reccommend, there is a class system with instructors (4/5/6 with class 6 being the "best") but I'm not sure how much it actually means.

    BSM... But like others have said be wary with choosing your instructor because unfortunately there are bad ones. Fortunately, there are really good ones too

    I went with LDC (quite a common common company round where i live). I definitely recommend them. I think they were £22 a lesson.
    I wouldnt recommend my 1st instructor though- he was garbage. The company was called gemini (he was a 1 man doing it on his own)

    LOL, but Thank you so much guys! You've been a great help

    BSM: I heard they're good, I know quite a few people who have done it with them so I willl definitely look at them

    AA: I heard they're expensive =/ but once again I'll look

    and Emma, I think LDC are in my area aswell

    I'll look at what everyone has said..

    ERROR Alert,ERROR ALERT!! One has to ask why one would include the word common two times and why one would not have realized they had done this. pardon me if I seem rather intimidating but one had to ask

    recommendations are always the best way to get an instructor, the big companies are always more expensive too, around £5 more a lesson simply because they have bigger overheads!

    Where are you living? Get an independent and maybe try out a few to get one you 'click' with.
