Passed 1st time - 30 hours
The workbook was a great tool to use before and after lessons to learn and solidify knowledge before getting in the car and each lesson could also be well adapted to the learner’s personal requirements and home area. My instructor worked great for me. He was very knowledgeable and professional and a calm presence in the car when learning. He explained things well and made sure all areas of the test were well covered and practiced in time for my test, despite the short time-frame of my semi-intensive requirements. I was a first time driver and passed first time within 16 days and 30 hours of lessons.
A great effort.
Steve is a fantastic instructor as when had him for a couple of lessons l felt that l was being taught how to drive rather than being told. Steve's approach to helping through situations is incredible for example when l had my lessons with Steve I could not do manoeuvres so what he would do is make me try first and inform me where I could improve rather than taking control and making me feel pressured and uncomfortable. He would also make suggestions after the lesson what to improve which helped than thinking just cause you have done a manoeuvre once or hill start that’s it, he would recommend some videos to watch so in that you more from not being in the car but in your time as well which meant you can progress and learn more.
Hard work pays off
I found Steve to be very friendly and approachable. He was very patient when explaining manoeuvres and techniques and didn’t mind lots of questions. Time was never wasted and Steve was very encouraging and provided helpful feedback on how/ where to improve.
Firsr time pass - 26 hours tuition
I'd say that the Ld system works well and is an enjoyable way to learn to drive and Steve is easy to talk to and has good conversation which makes it all a lot easier.
Passed first time
Driving was something that I had always wanted to do but worried me because of the dangers involved. My instructor Steve and the LDC system changed this view within a few lessons. Steve made me feel at ease when first driving and always had s laugh on which helped with the nerves I felt. The LDC theory resources are perfect, I practiced my theory with them for a few weeks, went in to do my theory test and passed, my instructor had also helped with this as there were some things we has went over which popped up in the test. The DVD I was given was great and helped with my manoeuvres, it was very clear and precise. The workbook also helped a lot as it meant I was able to reflect on lessons, plan what I wanted to do in upcoming lessons and read the sections before doing the lesson to know what I expected. The LDC system is fantastic and I'd recommend LDC to anyone looking to start driving! Thank you Steve and LDC for teaching me to drive. I now feel confident behind the wheel and cannot wait to get my own car in the future.
Anyone need an excellent driving instructor based Gateshead way? Steve's you man.
