Lloyd KershawLloyd Kershaw
The LDC system is perfect
Lloyd - The LDC system is perfect for someone who wants to take control of their learning. It is very reflective and the support you get is incredible. Clare is an absolute credit to LDC and is a brilliant instructor. Clare is calm and thorough. I have been with two previous instructors but have never felt I could pass the test. However, Clare help me overcome this negative mindset and passed the test with only 3 minors! If I can do it, you definitely can, especially with Clare!! Clare - I am so very proud of you, what a lovely drive. You have worked so hard and overcome your anxiety and negativity. What a result you passed in time to start your new job. Good luck in the new job and for the future. See you around stay safe 🙌🙌🎉

First time pass

Congratulations 🥳 stay safe

We beat the nerves
You’re given a helpful free book and app to use to help you practice your theory, track your progress, and reflect on your lessons. Areas that needed improvement were highlighted to me in the LDC workbook so that I could read through the information before next lesson. Clare is a wonderful instructor who is very friendly and makes you feel at ease. She knows how to help you deal with and overcome your anxiety. Since driving with Clare, my confidence and driving ability have improved 10 fold. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and I will genuinely miss having lessons with her. Clare — Tash you have worked so hard to combat those terrible nerves you have brilliant and I will miss our lessons too. So very pleased that you have passed congratulations and stay safe 😁

The LDC workbook is very useful for in between lessons. The videos are as well to help remind myself of different techniques such as manoeuvres. The lessons where good, Clare was very nice and patient when I would get things wrong and talk it through with me. The LDC app was useful for my theory practice and hazard perception practice. Thanks Clare! Congratulations Liv, well done excellent pass what a great job. Enjoy your driving and your own car, all the best. Clare

Joseph LittleJoseph Little
Passed and independant
Joseph; I started learning to drive with Clare at the end of August 2022, with total anxiety and horrendous nervousness about being on the road. 3 months later I had passed with total confidence. Clare has a great sense of humor which helps put you at ease, especially when doing the first few nerve riddled lessons. She was really flexible with learning times as I have work and a family life, which could have proved difficult to fit lessons in. On our lessons, Clare went through all the practical parts of driving, but more importantly, asks you as a learner loads of questions of which help drill home the understanding of what you are doing. Clare was patient with me in all aspects of driving, especially if something proved tricky. I've been driving now for around 5 months, and I am completely confident on any journey. Clare doesn't just teach you to pass your test, she prepares you to have confidence on all roads, in any place 👍 Cheers Clare, it was a pleasure. Clare; It was a great pleasure to have worked with you and to see how happy you where in your achievement in such a short time. You had great dedication to homework and determination to achieve your goals, and we covered a huge amount in a short time. Congratulations and stay safe 🙌
