I passed my driving test first time today thanks to my instructor, MIKE! I've been driving with Mike since December 2018 and in the five months of learning with him, I've managed to pass my theory and practical both on the first attempts. Mike is a great instructor because not only does he teach, but he listens to. We worked out the best area for me to learn in and, even though it wasn't the closest, Mike was happy to spend extra time taking me there to ensure I was being taught in the best place.
Mike is everything you would expect from a driving instructor and so much more! He is kind, patient, funny and so knowledgeable. A true professional who has this way of putting you at ease which makes the learning experience so enjoyable. He is able to explain the rules of the road and how to approach different driving manoeuvres in way that is clear and easy to understand. I would highly recommend Mike to all my family and friends. Thanks Mike for everything!
After having a really bad experience with my previous instructor, all i can say that Ash is an excellent driving instructor. Every step of the way was explained clearly with an undertsnading that i was a new driver. In addition i would like to add, that Ash was very punctual and of course funny and positive guy. He always tried to suit my needs and the atmosphere while having my driving lessons was amazing.
I would really reccomend Ash as a driving instructor, very realible guy! will not dissapoint you, at the end of the day, you will become a confident driver !
I had the best driving experience with my genius and exceptionally professional instructor Ash, who’s been very supportive and motivating during all my driving lessons. He was very knowledgeable with the test routes, traffic laws and driving skills. He was very patient and laid back with such a lovely and friendly personality that made me feel more confident with driving. He always provided me with a thorough coaching experience and after only 3 lessons I was a fairly competent driver! His sense of humour creates a very relaxing atmosphere for the learner in which he’s able to mix the learning factor with fun and laugh. I strongly recommend Ash for all the learners who are starting from scratch.
⭐️ With Ash you will smash it.
I was one of many students who experienced a previous bad instructor who want just there for the money and wasted his own time and my time, however, my whole experience of driving changed the moment I found Suja Driving School and the main man who made my whole idea of a driving instructors change was Ash (based in Cheetham Hill area). He is honestly a star and has so much humour in him; makes the lessons atmosphere fun and not so awkward to be in like most instructors I’ve been with. Also, despite the fact I haven’t been driving with Ash for a very long time (Max 3 months) he got me passed this morning first time. He does make the lessons fun like I’ve mentioned but he has a lot of driving knowledge up there which will get anybody passed first time so he’s no time waster and will get straight to the point
I am very satisfied with the service overall provided by the school especially the one and only ASH the Man, thanks for having the patience and all the kindness ??
I was very nervous about starting my driving lessons as I had completely 0 experience. On my first lesson Ash made me extremely comfortable from the get go. He seemed like a very laid back friendly guy, and didn't over burden me with too much info! By just my third lesson I was a fairly competent driver! He showed me all the test routes while paying careful attention to my driving and pointing out all my areas for improvement. Before I knew it I was I was driving to a high quality of standard and ready for my lesson.
I can not recommend ASH enough for all you people looking for an instructor. He doesn't just teach you how to drive he actually makes it enjoyable. He was really flexible with times as I had a busy schedule. To my absolutely joy I passed first time. I wish i did my lessons with Ash from Suja earlier. And if you are ever reading this, thankyou!
Mike is a very good instructor, hes friendly and patient and makes you feel comfortable, i left my previous instructor and im really happy to have come to him.. hes taught me so much that i didnt know before, he doesnt waste your time or money. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to drive automatic! With his brilliant teaching skills i passed!!!!! So if you want to pass then go to MIKE!
I 100% recommend ASH from suja he is one of the best instructor I have ever come across.I have been looking for a good instructor for a while most instructor out there are money hungry but I was once recommended to go to ash from suja so I gave him a go. Hands down one of the best I only needed 10 lessons and I was ready for the test. This guy gives you laughs and jokes makes the lesson fun and also very knowledgeable. He know all of the exam routes and gets you used to all of them. I passed my test first time and I believe I wouldn’t of been able to do it without his help. NOT only did he help me drive better he mentally helped me and prepare for the exam giving me tips on how to stay calm and for that I thank him. thanks ash !!!!!!!!
I recommend Ash from Suja to all new learner drivers as well as drivers who are looking for a new instructor. A family recommended Ash and I jumped at the opportunity to learn with him because a few people had said good things about him. he is the most kindest, patient, friendly and calm instructor ever, he didn't rush me whilst I was learning and allowed me to take my time while learning maneuvers. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed during lessons. He even said that my driving was amazing however I was still quite nervous about my test. Ash made me feel relaxed about the test and helped me battle my anxiety. Ash he wanted to sit in the car when I did my test. This helped me so much because I am extremely nervous when doing any kind of exam and having him sit in the car with me really helped as I think I would have failed if he wasn't there. Ash is the best teacher I have ever had. If you want a good driving instructor Ash from Suja is who you need to learn with.
If you are looking for a driving instructor who will teach you properly, I mean explaining things to you, showing you every detail on the road, helping you with your awareness as well as helping you become an amazing driver then I would 100% recommend everyone who is based in North Manchester to contact Ash!
I passed first time with Ash and i wish i had been introduced to Ash many years ago as this review would have been written then because for me he is the best when it comes to detail and also he is a great person who makes you relax when you are doing your lessons, honest and trustworthy too!
Thank you Ash for all your help and advise - you helped me become the driver I am and taught me the correct way and didnt waste time.
Honestly so disappointed with my experience with SUJA driving school. they're intensive driving course does NOT include a booking for the actual theory test as it implies on their site. Make sure you do your research properly, you can get more hours for less elsewhere. The 'perks' that they say comes with they're intensive course such as the free local pick ups and drop offs are just like any other normal driving lessons. There's nothing perky about it. Also I was told 2 different prices for my test when I asked how much it would cost. First £95 to pay for some 3rd party then £35 the second time, which makes me wonder if there's some dubious scheme going on. Anyway it's disappointing as I was rather pleased with my driver, but I hate feeling cheated out of my money.
I arranged on Thursday a lesson for Saturday 6pm in MCR with an instructor named Atta and he never appeared.
I was calling him and sent messages but he didn't answer.
He called me after 1.5 hour to say that supposedly his car had a problem and the recovery van took it and he forgot his phone in the car...
Not even a baby would believe this story.
We rearranged for next day, Sunday for 2pm.
He again didn't appear and after I called him many times he called back to tell me that he was finishing another lesson and that he was trying to make time for me!
Don't bother with this school, there's no integrity and consistence!
No respect for customer's time!
I guess this is why their hourly rate is so competitive.
I would put no stars at all if I could.
Ash from Suja driving school is the best driving instructor I have ever had!
When I first started driving I was really nervous and had ZERO knowledge on driving. Ash was the most patient and kind person, he did everything step by step and allowed me to take all the time I needed and never got impatient. He worked all the controls of the car such as the brakes and gears whilst I learned how to steer the wheel.
He told me everything and anything I needed to know for my test; took me on every route imaginable. Amongst all of this, driving with Ash was fun and not nerve wrecking or stressful.
Ash is always cracking joke there’s never a dull moment on my lessons! He is very friendly and VERY patient during the lessons and always gives 110% to his students so they can be the best drivers they can be! He is a fantastic instructor and would HIGHLY recommend him to anybody in the north of Manchester.
P.S Ash, I got this.
My review of Suja Driiving School is outstanding because I found my driving instructor Ash to be a brilliant instructor he was calm, patient and with no attitude issues, Prior to when I stated with Suja I was with some other companies in my local area for lessons but I thought I was going no where with the lessons and my driving skills were not improving... I then got to know Ash and started getting lessons from him, instantly I felt comfortable and relaxed during his lessons. Ash Is always in a good mood and up for a laugh which makes your lessons very pleasant. Importantly Ash made me confident behind the wheel which I was lacking at the start but gradually gained my confidence, Ash also had a steady plan for me and he work on my weaknesses. Fortunately I have passed my practical exam first time and couldn’t thank Ash enough. I highly recommend other learners to give Suja a go you (would not regret it).
I can’t stress enough how good of a driving instructor Ash from Suja driving school is! I’m so appreciative to have been lucky enough to have been taught by him. Hes very patient, attentive and best of all extremely interactive. He legit gives you 110% in all his lessons, constantly pushing you to the best of your abilities.
I started driving with a different instructor which wasnt as good. So I’m very happy I ended up being one of Ashs pupils.
All his lessons are enjoyable due to his personality and good sense of humour. He really does make you feel at ease especially when driving can be very stressful especially for us beginners.
So if anyone is looking for lessons he is based in North Manchester and usually caters to people that live in Cheetham hill, Crumpsall, Blackley, harpurhay or neighbouring areas please contact Suja & ask for Ash or else you’re really missing out.
Mike is a fantastic and friendly instructor and I want to share how great my experience was. Compared with my previous experience with another company, I learnt more from Mike and enjoyed my learning experience with him. Mike never dwells on mistakes. He is very pragmatic and instead encourages you to get it right next time. All of his instructions, teaching and tips were excellent and easy to understand and implement. I always felt comfortable and confident with him instructing me.
I will strongly recommend Suja Driving School and Mike to anyone I know.
I just passed and my instructor Ash from Suja was such a great guy he made my lessons very enjoyable and fun whilst also being able to teach me everything at the highest level. Prior to being taught by Ash I had no driving experience and within this time I have been able to become a good driver passing on my very first go. I am able to say that he is a very good guy also and helps calm you down and keeps you motivated to succeed and to give it your best shot! It’s not common to see such good people helping the way he does and I can say I was very privileged to be able to learn by him. My overall experience was superb
Best driving school. I did the intensive course at Suja and Hafeez, my instructor, was beyond incredible. He makes driving feel so simple and easy. He is amazing at explaining things, and it would have taken me a lot longer to pass if I didn’t have him as an instructor.
He was always available despite my limited free time, and was great at calming my nerves before my test. He makes driving fun!
I previously had an instructor with another school, and what I covered in 10 hours with him, I covered in 1 hour with Hafeez. He goes at the rate you want, and as I wanted to pass fast, he didn’t hold me back at all.
Hafeez is so patient and kind, as well as extremely knowledgable on driving. You won’t find a better instructor.
I would definitely recommend Ash from Suja driving school. He is definitely the best instructor out there. He is so kind and so patient creating the perfect calm environment a new Learner would need and would love. He's always so supportive, so helpful and really easy to talk to. He is also open to have a laugh, thus creating the experience of learning to drive more enjoyable and less stressful.
