About Us

Who We Are

  • The Big Red L is a high quality driving school franchise that only uses the best independent instructors. Based in Folkestone and Hythe, but ever-expanding.

    We offer both regular and intensive driving lessons. So you can choose the course that is right for you

    Tony Simcock founded The Big Red L Company many years ago with the aim of "eradicating shoddy driving from the planet" as he would say. An expert driving instructor with decades of experience, Tony is ranked among the top 2% of driving instructors in the country; this means you pay for fewer lessons before you pass your test, saving you money better spent on your gap year, going to university or buying your first car.

    We know the local area of Folkestone and Hythe better than most people know their own house. We'll give you all the insider-knowledge and preparation that will help you when your driving examiner takes you on the same roads on your test. We are also committed to 'safer drivers for life', so you can drive safely enough to enjoy your new licence over a full life-span. We take a liking to our pupils and want them to stay in one piece.

    Not convinced? We'll throw in our Power of 3 scheme which means you can actually earn money by recommending us to your friends. Recommend 3 friends to us and you'll instantly get yourself £30, with the potential of earning more if your friends recommend others in turn.

    The Big Red L office is manned by Tony ( about.me/tonysimcock ) and his team - Samuel (an admin-wizard with a lot of pluck), and Cath (a bookkeeper who bosses me around).
