First time Pass
“Throughout my learning experience I have enjoyed driving largely due to Louise’s attitude and motivation. She is always happy to have a laugh (especially when I was nervous) calming my nerves. The LDC workbook and hub really helped set a foundation and understanding for me helping me prepare for my lessons. I felt really prepared for my test and was a big help in helping me pass my test first time. I don’t think there is a better person to learn from.”

First Time Pass
Thank you so much Louise. Fantastic Instructor. I have had lessons with other instructors before but found myself struggling. After moving to Louise my confidence grew and each lesson I felt myself improving and getting closer to getting my license. I was able to learn at my own pace and Louise kept me motivated and improving each lesson. Thank you so much Louise for all your help and support and helping me pass first time.

Passed With 1 Minor Driving Fault!
Louise has been brilliant, as a nervous driver I have felt very comforted and supported throughout my learning experience. The learning materials provide a structured approach which can be adapted to work for you as an individual, and the workbook is a very useful tool for supporting the practical and theory. I cannot thank Louise enough for her help and support and would recommend Louise and LDC to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

Louise was very helpful and patient during my driving lessons. I wasn’t the fastest learner by any means but Louise always remained calm and helped me continually improve my skills and pass my driving test. Before I started to learn to drive even the idea scared me but Louise made my lessons enjoyable, while still keeping them progressive. Louise helped to calm my nerves and was very supportive. Thank you for everything Louise!

Passed 1st Time with only 1 minor driving fault!
Louise was more than anything very supportive! Not only was she very helpful at the start of my driving experience but on test day she was exactly what any young nervous learner would need. From learning the basics of clutch control to reverse parking Louise was knowledgable and made sure I had all the skills I needed. I always felt safe during my lessons which at the beginning was very reassuring. During the Covid-19 lockdowns Louise gave me support for my theory. I would definitely recommend Louise as she has been a great instructor! Not only did I PASS FIRST time but I must give credit to Louise for being so supportive!

“Congratulations Alex and thank you for your kind words. You did all the hard work and really deserve your pass with only 1 minor driving fault.“
