I'm really glad I chose to learn with Tim as he really helped build my confidence on the road right from day 1. He was always calm, friendly and willing to teach me at a pace that suited me, and knew when to move things forward to get me ready for my test. Couldn't recommend him enough, brilliant instructor, again thanks a bunch Tim.👍

AbbieAbbie
Tim was a great driving instructor, and after being with other instructors in the past, he knew how to tackle some of my driving anxiety with logical thoughts instead of giving into it. He is flexible with lessons and he makes it a lot easier to learn with his patience and attitude. I really felt like the lessons were tailored to what I needed to work on which helped build my confidence. Would recommend Tim to anyone wanting to learn, especially if you’re feeling anxious about driving.

JadeJade
After failing two previous tests my confidence in driving was at an all time low. I came to Tim to start afresh. Tim was incredibly understanding and worked with me at a pace I felt comfortable. He helped fill in some knowledge gaps which in turn gave me more confidence in what I was doing and ultimately better control of the car. I passed my test first time with Tim and I felt confident and in control the whole time! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a patient, calm and understanding instructor. Thanks again :)

Tim has been the most supportive and patient instructor. The service he provides is excellent in terms of accomplishing a new skill every lesson without it seeming overwhelming. He ensures every manoeuvre is carried out the best of one’s ability before moving on to allow confidence to build. Overall, I would highly recommend Tim for your next driving instructor

MollyMolly
Tim is a supportive, encouraging and brilliant driving instructor. I started learning to drive whilst at college and he was so accommodating in fitting around my timetable. The resources he has available were really helpful in preparing for both the theory and practical test. He helped me practise any areas I felt less confident on until I was confident I could do them in any scenario and he was always patient with me. I felt I was progressing after each drive and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thanks for everything!

RhysRhys
Tim has been a great instructor, after doing consecutive weekly lessons that have been fitted around my college schedule I have been able to pass my driving test. I am very grateful for the time and effort Tim put into personalising lessons to focus on areas I was less comfortable with.

SophieSophie
Tim was an amazing driving instructor, he kept me calm and at ease even in stressful situations. He was very patient with me and explained every stage of my driving and what would be happening in every lesson. I used the LDC account to help me revise for my theory and the book to help me prepare for the questions I could be asked on my practical test. Couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor I really enjoyed learning to drive with Tim, thank you.

Tim is an amazing driving instructor and was consistently patient and supportive during each and every lesson. Thanks to Tim he made my learning experience fun and interesting and I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. He was extremely flexible with timings working around my college timetable. Overall he was a super friendly and accommodating driving instructor and so for that reason I couldn’t recommend a better teacher.

Tim is an amazing driving instructor that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for one. He has been nothing but supportive, calm and patient throughout all of the learner experience. Tim has encouraged me on my journey to become a confident and skilled driver. Not only is he a great driving instructor but a lovely and kind person with his learners. Thank you Tim for making me a safe driver.

Pass Plus
I had a great time on the Pass Plus course with Tim. I'd recently passed my driving test and didn't yet feel confident enough to drive on my own. Tim is a patient and knowledgeable instructor. He shared a few tips that have since made driving a manual car easier and more of an enjoyable experience. Driving on the motorway was not as scary as I thought it would be, and it also helped to have such a good instructor guiding me through it. I would definitely recommend doing the Pass Plus course with Tim.

EleanorEleanor
Tim was a great, supportive instructor who was very honest and helpful throughout my driving lessons. As I progressed I felt my confidence increasing and saw improvements in my skills after every session. I passed second time and after my nerves and worry after my first test, Tim continued to reassure me and believe in me. I would 100% recommend Tim to anyone who is wanting to learn how to drive.

First Time Pass
I had an instructor before Tim and nothing seemed to be working, however with Tim I was a changed learner. I felt safe with him as my guider which in turn meant I was a confident driver who was able to tackle any new learning challenges, moving at a pace that was suitable for me. Not only was Tim a patient instructor but also flexible, working around timetable changes. And with a first time pass I couldn’t be more thankful to Tim, I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive!

I just passed my driving test first time! This was all due to Tim’s great tuition, patience and understanding. I felt really comfortable and relaxed from my very first lesson. I’d recommend him to anyone.

EveEve
LDC was one of the first companies I came across with the most helpful website for navigating and communication with the Instructor. They provided me with a guide which was so useful to me as a beginner. So trusted and reliable, as well as providing as much support and information as possible. Thanks for everything Tim :)

Tim has successfully navigated my eldest son through his driving test at the first attempt. His lessons have been extremely well structured and allowed my son to progress really well in a relatively short period of time. His initial lessons with a different instructor had been curtailed by COVID and Tim was recommended to us in the meantime. It was the best decision we made to switch to him and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

EllieEllie
Tim is an amazing driving instructor, he is always calm and patient which put me at ease when I was driving on my lessons. I now feel confident that I can drive safely on the road with all the skills he taught me. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you for everything you have done for me.

AndrewAndrew
First Time Pass
A 1st time pass that I couldn't have managed without Tim. A truly excellent instructor, always managing to get the most out of lessons even if I myself didn't feel like I was doing great. He's punctual, friendly and patient and excels at getting information through to you. His methods of teaching are intuitive and well constructed. Every lesson felt like I was learning something new and making progress, whether big or small. He really made the experience of learning to drive feel tapered and personalised. Things such as helping visualise techniques through a good old pen and whiteboard always helped whenever I was stuck on something. 10/10, I'd happily recommend Tim to anyone looking for a great driving instructor.

IsobelIsobel
Tim is an amazing driving instructor, he is really calm and patient and always takes time to explain everything clearly. He is flexible which works around college and he is always on time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tim and both my sisters will be learning to drive with him.

He provides knowledge and important information about each area of driving and explains it clearly. The lessons felt comfortable and I was able to progress at my own pace. I highly recommend :)

AmeliaAmelia
After putting off driving lessons for a few years, I’m so happy I chose Tim as my instructor. He has such a kind and patient teaching technique and always made me feel at ease, even on my most anxious days. Tim always worked around my schedule and made learning to drive so easy for me. Thank you so much Tim!

Danielle Danielle
First Time Pass
Tim has been a brilliant driving instructor. He was always very patient and put me at ease as I was quite a nervous driver to start with. I went from being very anxious while driving to really enjoying my lessons with Tim, he explained everything so well and allowed me to learn in my own time. He was always willing to answer any questions I had and helped me build my confidence behind the wheel and pass first time. I would definitely recommend having lessons with him!

Tim's calm approach to lessons and good humour makes him a great instructor to learn from. Thanks again for everything Tim.

Hi Tim, thank you again for helping me pass my test and being very patient, I’m so glad I passed my test after having lessons with you :)

Georga
First Time Pass!
A big thank you to my instructor Tim, he is kind, patient and made me feel at ease straight away. I built confidence quickly with driving and he helped me stay motivated throughout my lessons. I’ve had a handful of driving instructors over the years but Tim stood out as the best one I had. During unprecedented times with covid, making it almost impossible for me to get regular lessons booked in, Tim went out of his way to fit me into an already busy schedule, he didn’t only teach me to pass my test but be the best possible driver I could be.

I had a really good experience learning with Tim- he was very patient and understanding during the early stages of learning. I am now able to drive confidently wherever I go, whether that be a new route or driving to work. Would recommend him to any learner wanting more confidence and security on the road!

Kyle SmithKyle Smith

I would like to say I would 100% recommend Tim as a driving instructor, he was recommended to me when my first driving instructor moved away. I have found Tim to be supportive, helpful and a great driving instructor. He helped me build confidence when driving and gave me constant tips on what to improve on throughout my lessons, which in return helped me pass my driving test first time.

Tim's calm and clear instructions in combination with all the information available in the LDC Driving Skills workbook meant that I could not have been better prepared when it came to taking my driving test.

Lewis NealLewis Neal

I took an intensive week of lessons with Tim, we did about 5-6 hours a day for 7 days. The lessons themselves were very interesting, he taught me everything I would need to know about driving and by the end of my lessons I felt prepared and confident to take the test, which I passed First Time thanks to Tim.

Sophie BSophie B

Tim was very friendly and accommodating. He seemed completely dedicated to helping me learn and improve my driving skills, not purely focussed on passing my test but teaching me how to drive properly. I would definitely recommend Tim as a driving instructor.

PatiencePatience
I passed my driving test with help from Tim. Tim has been very patient and encouraging throughout our lessons. I always knew what progress I was making and what I needed to improve on. He also provided lots of resources for both theory and practical test, which helped me and calmed down my nerves. I highly recommend having lessons with Tim.

SophieSophie
I'm so pleased I've just passed my driving test. I would like to say a big thank you to my driving instructor Tim for all his help and patience. I started out as a really nervous driver and Tim helped me feel at ease as we worked together to build my confidence and skills up on the road. I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor, every lesson was great progress and such a pleasure to do! Thank you Tim.

AnnaAnna
Tim is very patient, calm and easy to get along with. Overall a great instructor!

MichelleMichelle
Tim is a great driving instructor and really helped me pass. As a first time driver he took his time to explain things and is very patient with the entire learning process. Tim has improved my confidence on the road as well. Learning to drive seemed particularly difficult to me, but Tim has always motivated me in my lessons and he noticed anywhere I needed improving on and so we spent more time on those areas. The lessons were well suited to my learning needs and made me feel extremely prepared for my test. Overall a great instructor!

I chose Tim because a friend recommended him and I’m very pleased that I did. I managed to pass first time and would definitely recommend to anyone else. 10/10.

JamesJames
A big thank you to Tim for helping me pass. Lessons were always well structured which helped me continually develop. I was nervous at first but Tim is very calm which is a massive benefit as it makes you feel at ease behind the wheel.

HollyHolly
Passed 1st time
Tim has a really good style of teaching which made me feel at ease and comfortable in attempting new things, and also adjusted his teaching style to what suited me best at different times which was very helpful. He gave me options for what we could do in lessons which made it a lot more tailored to me and what I needed to work on personally which I found useful.

BradleyBradley
My lessons with Tim were always well structured and I always knew what I had to do to improve. I really enjoyed my lessons, he's incredibly supportive and always listens to your side of a decision. Would really recommend him to anyone.

KathrynKathryn
First Time Pass!
I'd been dreading learning to drive, but I was quickly put at ease behind the wheel. Each lesson was well structured with a definite sense of progression every week and lots of encouragement. They were also good fun. I never felt that I was being pushed too quickly but was encouraged to develop my driving skills at my own pace, and the feedback during and after each lesson was invaluable. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor.

JessicaJessica
A massive thank you to Tim for teaching me to drive. I am a very nervous person but he always made me feel at ease on all my lessons and made them enjoyable learning new things each time. Would definately recommend to anyone wanting to start their driving lessons!

HaileyHailey
1st Time Pass
I’m so glad I chose to learn with Tim. He was always friendly, patient and caring. I was an anxious driver but Tim helped keep me calm and really helped me to build my confidence on the road. Arranging lessons around my full time work was easy and Tim was very accommodating by doing evening and weekend slots. I would recommend him to anyone.

StefanStefan
I really enjoyed my lessons with Tim. He’s very patient and easy to get along with. I found his instructions to be helpful and easy to follow allowing me to pick up essential driving techniques quickly.

GeorgeGeorge
Having Tim as my instructor was the best thing about every lesson. Expect someone who is attentive, patient and wants the best for his students, as well as having a great sense of humour when it counts. It took me two attempts to pass my practical, but through the help Tim gave me, he made sure to tell and show me when I had done things wrong. I must not forget to mention the blackboard and pens as you may see them a lot, or at least I did. He always listens to you and likes to hear your side of a decision that you made, in order to talk over and evaluate what you could do next time. Tim has made me a better driver, as even now after I’ve passed I can still hear his advice when certain events arise.

Craig
Pass Plus
I contacted Tim for a Pass Plus course when another instructor let me down. He’s very patient and an excellent instructor who goes through any issues and tells you how to improve on them. I would definitely recommend Tim to anyone who’s interested in a Pass Plus or wanting to learn to drive.

IrinaIrina
My lessons with Tim were always very well planned out and catered to me as an individual. He is an extremely patient and supportive instructor, as well as always being reassuring. I found the use of the workbook very useful, as it helped me visualise what was involved and also track my progress. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tim as an instructor to anyone.

Tom Tom
Tim was incredibly supportive and helpful to me and an excellent driving instructor, helping me pass my driving test at the first attempt. The use of the LDC videos and book provided to me by Tim really helped me in the progression as a learner driver.

SarahSarah
Passed 1st time
I passed my driving test 1st time with Tim at the age of 39! I was quite a nervous driver, but Tim was very patient and talked me through everything so I knew exactly what to do. I found the workbook and website good, especially for the Theory Test Practice. I would recommend Tim to anyone, he is professional, punctual and very patient!

KershaKersha
Tim was a very good driving instructor and helped me to pass on my first attempt. He was very reassuring and is a lovely guy, I would happily recommend him as a driving instructor.

Georgia
I passed my driving test first time after taking a semi intensive course with Tim and I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Friendly, professional and patient, I immediately felt at ease and enjoyed learning to drive. Always reliable and punctual, (even spending that little bit longer after each lesson to give constructive feedback) I was aware of the progress I was making and was able to have input in what I wanted to focus on. Even on my off days he always highlighted the positives and never made me feel stupid for asking him a thousand questions and at times overthinking everything. He has a way of simplifying things and has a very calming effect. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive!
