Its been 1 year since I opened my file in galadari driving institute and i have had the worst experience ever with them. They say that they are the ‘cheapest’ driving institute in dubai but that’s just a way to lure customers in. They have at least 10000 hidden charges that you will get to know about later.
The whole institute works on bribes and connections/reference. I know so many people who have passed their road test because they have given bribes to the order examiners.
Driving a car is not rocket science. Its the most easiest thing in the world if you know all the rules and regulations and the basics of car yet they fail people again and again to get more money.
As a student who works part time in dubai. This has been so difficult for me to afford even after the ‘student discount’ which was like 200 AED. How are they gonna judge my 1 year of driving in 5-10 minutes. If they want to judge they should ask my instructor to see how i drive. Literally they will fail you if you breathe in the wrong way. They will be like ‘No you need to breathe 10 times a minute not 12 times’. I know this sounds ridiculous but believe me when i say this that they will fail you for no reason.
I had the road test and instead of letting me drive the examiner is purposely putting her hands on the steering wheel and then she failed me because she was ‘helping’ me drive. The other reason she failed me because I didn’t do a line change IN FRONT of the signal. Like that doesn’t even make sense.
The instructor will tell you something else and the RTA will tell you something else. It hard to please them at all.
Not to mention the extra charge of 713 AED if you fail a road test. You have to take 2 classes even if you failed for a small reason.
I have my test again next week and i swear to god if i fail again I am going to complain about this institute to the Dubai Police Traffic Department because of how they are taking bribes and gifts to pass people and how unfair the institute charges are.
Under the customer protection law no. 24 of 2006. I have the right to express my opinions and i will do that.
I have attached some pictures of an article posted in the news about how a examiner was asking for gifts.
