Patrick has been an amazing Driving Instructor. He is very calm and patient in times of frustration. Also, he is always very supportive. The online theory test preparation from LDC helped me to pass the first time and LDC YouTube Channel was good for learning manoeuvres and recapping before my driving test.

Patrick has been a brilliant Driving Instructor: patient, understanding, knowledgeable and assuring, as well as good company and conversation. I do think, However, that whilst always prompt and on time for lessons, Patrick has been, on occasions, rather early, but this the only and a rather minor fault. The Driving Skills Workbook was comprehensible and useful and was used at times, affecting and easy to understand diagrams and explanations.

Patrick is an excellent Driving Instructor who is very thorough with his instructions as to how to complete manoeuvres and approach situations while driving which gave me a clear understanding of what to do while driving. The LDC driving skills workbook was very useful as it gave a detailed description of the way the test was marked and where minor errors could be picked up allowing me to know what to avoid in practice. The online theory test preparation was also very useful as it gave detailed reasons as to why questions had specific answers in relation to the highway code, making it an invaluable resource during my theory test revision.

Patrick is a real gentleman, a very experienced Driving Instructor, exceptionally patient and knows everything that is required to learn to drive safely. I was very impressed with his pre-discussion before and after each lesson. I am really happy and impressed with his coaching skills, appreciated his detailed emails which he sent me after each lesson to explain driving progress. I strongly recommend contacting Patrick if you are looking for a professional Driving Instructor and I'm going to recommend to my friends, relatives and acquaintances to contact him. All online preparation resources which Patrick provided was most helpful during my own preparations. The LDC workbook covers all subjects required to pass a test and the YouTube Channel was the most helpful too. Professionally designed lessons and videos are "auxiliary Instructors" during the preparation period.

Patrick is a Driving Instructor who has a caring approach. He is very supportive and understands the Learner's difficulties and barriers. His approach helps to break those barriers. The Driving Skills Workbook helps to develop awareness in many aspects of driving controls, road and traffic skills. I believe it is very useful for Learners. The LDC YouTube channel is another helpful element which highlights the practical aspects of driving necessary to prepare a Learner for the practical test.

I was quite a nervous learner and Patrick was incredibly patient and addressed all my anxiety in a calm, understanding manner. Patrick is an excellent Driving Instructor who takes the time to make sure that you are learning everything correctly and at a speed that is appropriate to you. Patrick has a very calm reassuring teaching style and doesn't get flustered even when I was getting stressed and struggling at times. He then got me through every situation calmly and without me feeling under added pressure. The Driving Skills Workbook and DVD were very helpful in my learning as was the LDC YouTube Channel.

Patrick demonstrated his knowledge of high level and helped me progress with every lesson by giving insight and tools to work with, to overcome obstacles. He was encouraging, supportive and always patient. During my course of learning, the LDC System workbook and online learning resources were of great help to further prepare me for my driving and theoretical sessions. The LDC YouTube Channel is a great tool to properly prepare me and give me knowledge on many different things, such as performing manoeuvres, roundabouts and road rules.

I now have my independence and cannot thank him enough. I recommend Patrick 100%. He was the Driving Instructor for me and if can teach me to drive and pass my test, he can teach anyone. Thank you Patrick.

Patrick is a fantastic Instructor, very patient, yet very informative in situations where needed. For anyone who is looking to learn to drive I would highly recommend Patrick as he is the second Instructor I have used and he is a mile ahead of my previous one. A fantastic personality to fit an obvious high level of experience as an Instructor and to anybody who is looking at learning to drive, I definitely recommend him. Thank you for all the work and effort you have put in with me, words cannot describe how grateful I am for everything. The LDC Driving Skills Workbook was very useful, it helped me to fully understand driving and my awareness of my surroundings. The LDC YouTube Channel was very easy to watch and to learn from, straight to the point with every situation imaginable.

Patrick is very friendly and uses different scenarios on each lesson, which helped me to understand about driving. Using a presenter for more difficult junctions and roundabouts, he helped me to deal with them. I would recommend Patrick to anyone. The LDC workbook was useful and loved the diagrams as they were very easy to learn from.

Patrick is a very professional Driving Instructor, very polite and helpful. He guided me from the beginning so well that I passed my theory and practice at the first attempt. It only took me 2 and a half months to complete the course and test. Thank you Patrick, would recommend to anyone. I mostly used the DVD for my theory test and I also read the chapters of the Driving Skills Workbook before each lesson. I found the materials pretty useful but haven't really had the time to look at the YouTube Channel.

Patrick is a great Driving Instructor. He put me at ease the first time I sat in his car and I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with him. Before my lessons with Patrick, I had some previous experience, both on private property and in lessons when I was younger. Because of this, I already had materials to practice for my theory, so did not fully utilise LDC resources. The LDC YouTube channel seems very informative, however, it may be more effective to post shorter videos. It's not often that I find the time to watch 90+ minutes of driving videos.

Patrick is an amazing Instructor, he made me confident in my driving, he is a kind and punctual person who really wants the best for his students, without him I wouldn't have passed my driving test first time. I just want to thanks Patrick for the commitment, love and respect he gave to me from his home visit to this day. The encouragement and support you have shown throughout my journey gave me the confidence I needed to succeed. As a father of 5 the difference driving has made to my family in just a few weeks is amazing, the adventures we have had is just the beginning. Never in a million years did I think I would pass first time. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone wanting to learn to drive. The LDC Driving Skills System was the reason I chose LDC, having previously done a few lessons with a different company with whom I had not had a great experience. I wanted something where I could see my progress and the Workbook helped with that. I also used the YouTube channel, as recommended by Patrick, and as a person with learning difficulties this definitely helped me for what I needed to do in preparation for my lessons, but having the right Instructor is the key to success. Thank you Patrick

Patrick is a really nice Instructor who explains everything clearly, remains calm, ready to accommodate your schedule and build up your confidence. The LDC Driving Skills Workbook is a very effective learning tool and is a must read before the test. The illustrations and diagrams help a lot especially for the roundabouts and various road signs.

Patrick is very patient and will tell you when/or if you make a mistake in a very nice manner, and is also very good at explaining the situation. I would recommend Patrick to anybody who wants to learn and pass as his way of teaching is second to none, and he is an extremely pleasant and nice tutor. I think that the DVD-ROM for the theory test and hazards perception test brought me along really quickly and the pictures in the LDC Driving Skills workbook helped me to support the explanation.

First of all, when I rate 5 stars it is too little. Patrick is number one Driving Instructor and I recommend him highly. I passed my driving test first time because he kept telling me and explained in details my mistakes until I correct it. Thank you very much Patrick for everything you have taught me. I only had the LDC Driving Skills Workbook but it helped me a lot to prepare for the next lesson. I also watched the LDC Youtube Channel to help me with my manoeuvres and general driving.
