Automatic is becoming more and more prominent with every passing day. We also offer driving lessons in automatic transmission vehicles for students that are interested in driving to drive automatic only.
The most favoured transmission in the UK, and indeed Europe - our teachers are experts in teaching new drivers clutch control and how to shift smoothly to make the most out of a manual transmission.
Understandably, a lot of drivers are nervous when they first pass. Our instructors do their best to ensure that you have a comfortable, pleasant experience and that you enjoy your time driving.
Our fees are fair and not excessive, as you’d expect from the instructor industry

Our instructors stay with you from start to finish, ensuring we both teach you and pass you!
We work with your schedule, ensuring you are able to book lessons when you need them
We work in many locations, Southampton, Eastleigh, Chandler’s Ford, Chilworth, and more
What Our Learners Think
Our learners are nothing short of happy with their experience with their instructor, and we feel the results speak for themselves.
I booked 4 hours of refresher lessons including motorway as I passed my driving test 6 years ago but hadn’t driven in 4 years. I was initially quite nervous about the idea of driving round a busy city as I’m used to driving on small country roads but my driving instructor Zia made me feel comfortable and relaxed straight away.
This is contrary to my driving instructor I had when first learning to drive who, albeit cheaper, would make me stressed when I made an error as he would grab the steering wheel and shout. Zia is a very calm and reassuring instructor and definitely worth the money as he has completely changed my idea of driving and I’m ready to get out on the busy roads by myself after all these years of busses!
Thank you Zia!
After dropping my driving lessons for 2 years, Zia brought back my confidence in driving and knowledge in only 2 months and today I passed my practical test first time!! I would not have been able to achieve this goal so quickly with anyone other than Zia and red driving school. There’s so much support given to students and I feel very confident in driving on my own for the first time thanks to all of his efforts. I highly recommend Zia for anyone truly interested in getting on the road.Jo Hudson
Zia is a very good driving instructor, he teaches very clearly and is easy to follow. I feel good about the progress and I’m looking to learn more from him later. I would definitely recommend Zia to everyone who wants to learn driving.S Yong
Zia Ahmed is an excellent driving instructor. He is polite, courteous and very knowledgeable about the driving test methods, roads, common questions and pitfalls. You will fail his mock tests almost every single time but you will pass your official test from the first time.Mohamed Oshallah
Great driving instructor. Patient teacher who got me through after failing my first test with another instructor. Would highly recommend for others.Kyall Montersino
My experience with Zia has been very positive. He has been patient, clear and thorough.
His great tips and techniques help overcome some of the more difficult manoeuvres and the lessons have been very enjoyable and I passed on my first attempt.
I would definitely recommend to all.Kazi Jakaria
