“Well I was a bit annoyed about the extra money they...”

Duncan S.
3/15/11

Well I was a bit annoyed about the extra money they charged but to be be fair I had something come up and required a cancellation and they refunded my money asap, no qualms about it... I think the people here are more annoyed with themselves really by not going to the official DSA site, I know I was, but to be fair they provided a decent service with with no issues

“As already flagged up, they are a SCAM”

ben r.
6/7/11

As already flagged up, they are a SCAM. Firstly, there web site has the look & feel of the UK govt. Driving Standards Agency web site, where you should book on-line. Secondly, they charge an £16 extra for booking on their site, for which they simply go onto the DSA site on your behalf. Thirdly, in the case of my son's driving test, they debitted my card twice, and only refunded me when I prompted them. The DSA is very aware of them, but appears to be powerless to close them down. KEEP AWAY.

I thought that I was using the official online booking service. Beware! Go direct to the DSA to book your test, this lot take £18 booking fee even though the DSA don't charge ANY booking fee. I've just been stung and i hope you don't get stung too!
If you try to cancel with these guys to book yourself they then charge a CANCELLATION FEE to the same value, daylight robbery. They should be shut down.

Don't bother going to this site! They do come up first in the search page of Google, but don't be fooled by their site, rather go to the official site (DSA, or direct.gov), they charge far more then the official site and don't really give you anything in return for the extra money you spend with them!

Well i thought i was on the official website as it came up first in Google and the colours of the site were similar to the DSA. I booked it and expected a date before the payment, but at the very latest after payment, but that was not to be. This is when my daughter told me the official site gives you a date before payment. I immediately tried to cancel via Google payment but no option to cancel so i compiled an email and sent it straight to them asking them to cancel my application and also requested a telephone number for them. They blatantly ignored about 5 emails and then hours later sent me a test date which was totally unacceptable even though i had given them a list of dates. I have been unable to find a telephone number for them, and they are not prepared to give me one. I had to take it up with my card company and request them to dispute the payment as the company hasn't got the decency to call me or give me their contact telephone number. This should have been a 21st birthday present and not only have they ripped me off by charging about £16 more than the official site, but they make sure you can't contact them. I reported them to the DSA who advised me to contact my card company and also the CAB. Be warned this company is very unprofessional and does not give any customer service at all. I now have to go via the credit card company's dispute team to get my money back, some people may not have this support…… Be warned, and be very aware. Only ever book using the DSA official site: www.direct.gov.uk

If you to online to book your test, this site comes up first, but although they say they are agents for the DSA they aren't, and they charge way more than the official driving test fee

I booked my test through the website 3 days ago and I have yet to receive a test date. They are complete scam artists so be aware. The trading standards helped me my money back and they are aware of this website's shenanigans. The scam artist behind the website is:

Answer:

Yeah, always search the net before you give someone your credit card information... You can call your credit card and do a chargeback if you haven't received the service or goods yet...
