Had my lesson with a Bill Plant driving instructor yesterday, Eventhough I had to be driven to town to take my lessons as apparently he could not come to my door. He was a genuine nice guy at first, paid £56 for 5 hours, (2 hour lesson ahead!) then when I switched to the driving seat he had no patience whats so ever. He constantly became frustrated and angry and kept saying 'I wasn't listening'. He constantly said his neck was hurting from me breaking quickly TWICE and continously made me feel bad mentioning im weakening parts of the car.. I apologised through out because I felt so bad to the point I was in tears and had to step out and have a break..

After the break nothing improved he became worse and kept syaing 'he wants it perfect' I found this ammusing as this is the first time ive ever been behind the wheel. Apparently he said he has the highest past rate of all bill plant instructors. WHAT?!

Phoned bill plant today to explain what happened and how im not happy to have this instructor, the only response I got was 'oh really, oh okay'... no apology no nothing I was fuming at this point. And ending my lessons with this company. Hoping fingers crossed I will be refunded for the next 2 lessons ive paid cash in hand!

Wouldn't recommend this company ATALL

Just googled them. Got nothing but bad reviews. Should have done a little homework before paying that much money.

Don't let that put you off driving, the guy sounds like a prat.

something about that price gives me the idea that it is a bad company, way too cheap.

ask family and friends to refer you to an instructor they already can vouch for, best thing to do imo.

Not necessarily. The majority of driving instructors offer introductory prices. For instance, when I was learning, my instructor did the first five hours for £55 and then the usual price of £19 per lesson after that.
