Even after you have had your experience, we will ask you for a review of the event to ensure everything went ok.
  • - Our core staff have been working in the industry since 2004 and have all the experience necessary to deliver the experience that is perfect for you.
  • - Each venue and provider has been vetted by us and reviewed by our customers meaning we can give you honest, unbiased advice about what you are ordering.
  • - We have 3 lines of communication; phone, chat and email and our customer service centre is open 6 days a week. The average answer time for our call centre to answer is 20 seconds and we have a vast help section where you should be able to find any answer online.
  • - Once you have chosen a date, we will help to ensure that you get the confirmation in time for your event and if need be we will liaise with the supplier on your behalf if there is a problem.
  • - After each event we invite our customers to review the venue and the provider. This valuable feedback is then used to improve our service and also made public to other customers considering the same event. As a returning customer you will be eligible for a drivingexperience.com discount code to use on your next purchase.

Don't like the constant up sell and extras. Recommend book direct not via a gift voucher. Great experience though.

A very long wait in the open followed by a very disappointing course over a very short distance. The instructor and reception staff were great but the lousy organisation spoiled things.

No stars. Very very disappointing. This was a gift from my partner and he had been led to believe that I would be driving around a track, not up and down a bit of waste ground. I had forty minutes, he was told it would be an hour. The information insisted we arrive on time to avoid delays yet several others were booked in the same time slot which meant we were kept waiting for almost two hours after the time slot we had booked. The drivers were arguing with each other about being kept late The people booking us in were unhelpful. The queues for book in were massive as we were sent in with crowds waiting to drive cars when we could have been processed in seconds. Badly organised badly delivered and so so disappointing.
cars: Meh
staff: Poor
instructors: Normal
