Reviews from driving schools

Having used one of Total Drives major competitors previously, I was convinced that they could not be beaten. Until I tried Total Drive. This app is not only perfect for the multi car school but also for the independent instructor too. Tech support is very quick and precise. All in all, there’s nothing not to like about this app and in my view, outclasses the competition in every way from cost to usability.

The app and software is brilliant, helping grow my multi-car driving school. In the current situation we need to become fully digital and this app has it all. The Total Drive team are always enhancing the software and listening to feedback. The customer service is first class, responding quickly, highly recommended! They really want a product that helps us driving instructors be more productive.

Incredibly good app, the developers have been amazing from the start – very flexible and adaptable, they listen to the instructors using it day in day out. Students love the app too! Very easy to use and book lessons in, brilliant for driving schools with many instructors as well. It’s an amazing price for what you get!
