I can't offer you any £9 or other cheap driving lessons that seem to be popping up all over the place, I know there are some genuine offers from companies like Red or BSM who have the financial muscle to back them, but be careful when dealing with local driving instructors.
I was at a driving test centre recently, and a candidate was unfortunately stopped from going out on the practical car assessment because the instructor's ADI badge had expired and had been 'forgotten' in the car where the examiner saw it! Now I have no idea if the instructor had be disqualified or genuinely just forgotten to renew with the DSA, but you as a learner driver need to be sure of who is teaching you, and that you are fully insured to drive a vehicle (it is still your responsibility as a driver).
Most instructors are legal and fully qualified, but if an ADI is not currently on the DSA register, then they can not charge you money for teaching you, so make sure you check the credentials of anyone offering you £49 for 5 lessons or any of the other variants of cheap lessons. Having to re-book another test at £62 is not too bad, but being sued for £100,000 personal injury is a very high price to pay for being ignorant and not carrying out due dilligence on your instructor.
If you require a high quality affordable driving instructor who is very helpful, patient and fully DSA qualified with many years of experience in the NW London Area, then why not call or send me a text message on 07956233032
