Great Pass today
Well today 12-10-2019 @9am I passed my test yay. My journey started with first lesson with Neil and he had his work cut out with me ha ha. I doubted my self and gave up a few times but Neil did not allow me to and helped every step with different approaches and kicked my bum in to action where needed. His instructions were clear and simply explained in great detail on weakness and strengths. If you are looking for an instructor then read these reviews to help you make your mind up. 100% the best 😁

Great Pass
I couldn't recommend Neil and the LDC Programme enough. I had driving lessons with Neil since Feb 2018 and finally passed last week (still in shock!!) Neil has a true gift - he has a fantastic ability to work with an individuals learning style and make things seem like a doddle. From my first lesson he put me at ease, and didn't make me progress onto a section of the programme until I was ready. The LDC Programme itself really focusses on independent learning, the onus is on you to put the hard work in but this is a great way to learn - there's no excuse to not know what you are doing before the lesson starts. This cuts down on briefings and talking over things at the start of the lesson. The workbook is detailed but very easy to digest, encourages you to set weekly goals, and it references sections of The Highway Code for further learning. I remember writing in the first page and thinking I would never make it to the test section at the very end. The accompanying DVD is informative and amusing at the same time! It shows you everything you need to do - all you have to do is show up and give it a go! There is also the LDC online portal which was fantastic for practice theory questions and Hazard perception in the run up to my theory test. Neil is there for you every step of the way with advice, positivity and a funny story. He has seen and heard it all, so there is no such thing as a silly question! Neil, thank you so much for everything you have done to help me pass my test. You never gave up on me when I felt like an idiot for not doing things correctly and never doubted me after my set backs along the way. 10/10 and Highly Recommended πŸš—πŸš—πŸš—

Lovely drive and pass
Neil is an absolutely fantastic instructor. I will forever recommend him to anyone who’s looking to pass. He creates a relaxed and calm environment while driving, there is never any pressure and he carefully explains everything, giving guidance and advice along the way. The driving skills workbook he provides is brilliant, it has everything you need to know about driving and everything you need to know about the driving test. There were times I had frustrations and times I had gotten upset and there were times I wanted to give up but he helped me through it and I wouldn’t have passed today without him.

I would recommend Neil 100 times over, could not have wished for a better instructor. From the moment you first get in the car he puts you at ease and is constantly encouraging you. Always had such a laugh on lessons with him and no question is stupid (I should know, I asked some stupid ones). Thanks for everything Neil, wouldn’t have got the courage to take my test never mind pass if it wasn’t for you!

Alfie CowanAlfie Cowan
Brilliant First Time Pass
I would 110% recommend Neil to anyone who wanted to start driving. He is such a friendly and nice person who’s always up for a laugh! Making you feel so comfortable and well relaxed. Neil will also allow you to progress at your own pace but will always encourage you to learn and improve every lesson. The handouts are amazing, full with so much detail about all aspects of driving to help understanding outside of lessons also. He communicates well and is always on-time. He’s the best!!! Will greatly be missed, thank you so much for everything mate, see you on the roads!

As a learner who is a little older than most, I needed an instructor who put me at ease and understood how learning to drive was such a big experience for me. Neil is patient, kind and above all makes you 100% comfortable. Learning at a pace and style that suited me. And no matter what happened - always made me laugh. Thank you. For everything.

Molly CowanMolly Cowan
Superb 1st Time Pass
I would 100% recommend Neil to anyone wanting to learn to drive. He has the patience of a saint and has made learning enjoyable. He makes sure you feel confident in each skill before moving on and the workbook helps with this too. Reflecting on each lesson and building on the strengths and weaknesses from the lesson has been a great way of learning because it means you know what to expect the following week and you can prepare before the lesson. Neil is fabulous and so easy to get on with. You won’t regret learning with Neil. Thanks for helping me achieve something I didn’t think I ever could, it’s been an adventure πŸš™β˜ΊοΈ

Charlie HunterCharlie Hunter
First Time Pass
Neil is truly amazing at his job of being a driving instructor. I think its so important that you get on well with the instructor as you’ll naturally progress quicker. He is so easy going, friendly and most of all calm. Not at all during my time with Neil have i felt pressured into tackling a particular road situation that i have not felt comfortable with. His desire to see you progress with driving is what you want from an instructor and reflects what he is like as a person. I thoroughly enjoyed learning and passing with Neil and thankyou for helping me along the way.

Nicole RoseNicole Rose
First time Pass
Neil is so patient and understanding which is what you definitely need from an Instructor. Highly recommended as Neil has helped me pass my Theory and Practical first time in 4 months. To help me achieve this, Neil was able to accomodate extra lessons prior to my test and was always available to any messages if Inhad any questions. Thank you Neil for everything you have done for me.

Vanessa GodwinVanessa Godwin
First Time Pass
Neil is an absolutely fantastic instructor. He took time out of his day to make sure that we recapped on everything after each lesson and always arrived early. 2 hour lessons were more like 2.5 hours. Very patient, friendly and I would highly recommend him. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor! Helped me to pass my theory and practical in less than 4 months!

Mo JellibiMo Jellibi
Having relocated from the Isle of Wight, where both the roads and instructors are very different I was nervous about driving on the mainland with faster traffic and busier road. With Neil he was calm and patient and understood my needs immediately which put me at ease which helped my confidence to grow. Thanks to Neil I passed first time on the mainland. I would have no hesitation in recommending Neil.
