Patrick was very helpful and understanding as I learned to drive. He helped improve my confidence dramatically through his knowledge and extensive way of explaining things. I didn't really use much of the resources. The handbook was ok but didn't help me that much.

Patrick was incredibly helpful and patient. I was initially nervous to drive but Patrick put me up at ease and I was comfortable driving during every lesson. He was excellent at explaining what was required and guided me through any mistakes. However, I was also encouraged to use my own initiative. I would definitely recommend him as an Instructor :) I found the LDC workbook very beneficial. It allowed me to feel prepared going into each lesson as I had some knowledge and understanding of the manoeuvres and skills needed...etc. This also helped me with efficiency and saved time. The YouTube Channel was also very useful. As someone who can find it useful to learn visually, it was good to be able to see the skills performed in a video.

Patrick is a great driving Instructor. He is patient, firm and encouraging in his teaching/instructing. Operating off a step by step process, driving progression felt balanced across all lessons and I never felt held back. It was a delight being Patrick's student in learning to drive and the process was much better than I had imagined it to be despite the process being significantly dragged out and delayed due to COVID. The LDC Workbook and theory test preparation resources were essential in my successful learning to drive experience. They covered all information I needed and more. The YT videos were helpful in understanding the various manoeuvres.

Patrick was very patient and understanding. He was reliable and professional during my time with him. He was always very helpful and couldn't recommend him enough. The LDC Driving Skills Workbook and accompanying videos I found were helpful in preparation for lessons and the useful information provided by Patrick. I also found the LDC YouTube Channel videos helpful for upcoming lessons and that I could plan ahead better and know what to expect along with the help from Patrick.

Patrick is patient, encouraging and helpful. He made the lessons comfortable to learn in and enjoyable. He ensured I was fully ready before taking my test. He helped my confidence by doing mock tests with me and going through any mistakes I made when practising those. The LDC YouTube Channel is very informative, clear and easily accessible. It allowed me to retain all information I learned during my lessons by being able to go over it again. I feel that helped me feel more confident on the day of my driving test as I knew what to look for in regards to potential hazards on the road as well as other things such as checking my mirrors...etc

Patrick explained everything really well. He built on my weaknesses to help me boost my confidence. I really like that he made a list of weaknesses and strengths at the end of every lesson so we knew what to focus on. I was taken on many challenging roads before my test in which many mistakes were made but many lessons were learnt. Having driven through different and challenging roads prior to my test definitely gave me more confidence for my test. Patrick taught me very well which helped me pass. Thanks, Patrick. I didn't get the chance to go through the videos but I did use the book which was very useful. I will definitely be using it in the future.

I am so glad I’ve listened to one of my friends when they told me, Patrick Bailly is great, and you will defo pass. Me failing it 2 times already I had not much hope. I would definitely recommend him, highly. He's very patient, explains in detail, great honestly. So glad passed with only two minors. I had not much hope to pass until I called Patrick, he provided me with the LDC workbook, which I definitely recommend looking at, everything is easy to read and follow, Patrick was very patient with me, he is very good at his job, he knows the towns very well. I did my exam in Northallerton, he provided me with many routes, and videos to watch, before my exam. Going to the exam I felt more prepared than ever. YouTube channel is great, I didn’t just use LDC, but it well explains and reassures individuals, I was very anxious about going into the exam, I watched one of the videos about anxiety, and how to deal with it while on the exam, I felt much better. The channel itself has useful information and videos on most of the subjects, I found it useful.

Patrick was very patient and has been really helpful. Especially, when I had a specific question or was unsure of something. Patrick has helped me to build my confidence with driving and has been really supportive. Thank you, Patrick! I used the LDC Workbook to refresh myself with the rules of driving and the roads at the beginning of my lessons. Often I found myself referring back to it when I wanted to recap a specific scenario. It was really helpful.

Patrick was a very good Instructor and very strong in teaching and perfect. Ha was very patient and calm in all stages of the training and spoke very well, and it was understandable to me who has English as my second language. I'm very happy to have been with Patrick's student from the LDC team in Darlington because he took the time for me to teach me a very brilliant driving. Thank you all LDC team. I wish you all the best. Thank you Patrick. I first read the LDC Workbook, then used the online app theory test and watch the hazards section before starting practical lessons to help with driving rules. It is a very good resource. The LDC YouTube Channel was great and very helpful to me from another country with different types of driving.

Patrick was always very patient and understanding throughout my learning whilst answering any questions I had. Patrick gave me the confidence I needed to be safe on the roads, showing he had faith in me. Although I myself didn't get much use of the LDC resources when I did make references the information was always really easy to follow and understand. I can see how this is a very useful tool having all your information in the same place. I found the LDC YouTube Channel very useful when I had trouble learning the manoeuvres and again always informative and easy to understand.

Patrick was clear with instructions and what he wanted me to do and he was good at explaining how to do things and carry out methods. He also let me work out things myself instead of just telling me and was easy to learn with. I used the LDC workbook and found the app more accessible.

As a nervous driver initially, Patrick was calm, understanding and extremely competent. He enabled me to feel at ease at the wheel and confident in my abilities. I don't think I'd have been able to pass without Patrick. He is an excellent Instructor that I would recommend to anyone I know. I've been driving independently for a couple of weeks now and I still have his voice in my head telling me "the road is clear ahead?" (AKA speed up!) I used the LD workbook alongside my lessons as advised by Patrick. I am an academic person so really enjoyed the extra aspect of the workbook to help me understand and remember the mechanism and manoeuvres. When my learning was disrupted due to COVID, I found the YouTube Channel useful to continue to remind me of how to drive and perform manoeuvres. Thank you, Patrick :)

Understanding people - This is the important quality to being an Instructor, however, patience and communication to the Learners need or feel, which is all of that I felt with my Instructor who gave me more confidence in my abilities. The most important thing that the Learner need is to work calm and hard, discuss with the Instructor and ask for help if needed. It's really important the have your personal work, not just the Instructor (self-work). I think you need to work hard on the LD System to pass from the first time. Good things always need to work on it (personal effort). My Instructor told me to have a look at the LDC YouTube channel which was brilliant to just need to work and write down notes.

Patrick was very understanding and recognised that English was my second language. He made me think about the things I did as a trainee. He was always calm, polite and friendly. He was always on time and his lessons were value for money. I would recommend him. Thank you Patrick you are a fabulous Instructor and would not have a first-time pass if it wasn't for your guidance. The LD system, workbook and videos were great, I was able to study, practice and go over things again such that I was able to pass both my theory and practical test FIRST TIME! Overall very happy with Patrick and LDC costs were reasonable. I'm a happy student! The YouTube Channel was an excellent resource. I learnt so much from this, I was able to view it when I was relaxed and calm. The guides made me learn so many things without even having got into the car. A fabulous resource.

Patrick is an excellent Driving Instructor with a lot of patience and time for your learning. Builds a great relationship with his pupils, learns how you understand driving and how to use the LDC System in order to assist you with any issues. Patrick is also great at building your confidence and reminding you of how far you've come and your capabilities. The LD System is great to learn and visualise from the comfort of your home and then transfer this learning into the real-life practical situation. The LDC YouTube Channel is great to watch prior and after lessons to ensure you are prepared for the lesson ahead, as well as having the videos as a reminder/checklist for your learning

Patrick is extremely patient and informative, he is always happy to explain methods fully and answer any questions I had. When I first began learning to drive I was very anxious and worried about other drivers, Patrick soon helped me feel confident on the roads and now feel like a safe and well-educated driver. The LD System Workbook is an advantageous learning material when learning to drive with LDC, I found that it helped me document my progress and had very instructive information for manoeuvres. The online platform allowed me to revise for my theory test thoroughly and also pass 1st time with confidence. The LDC YouTube Channel is a very helpful resource to go to while learning to drive, especially for someone who learns best visually. I found watching mock tests informative for the driving test as they allow you to see safe driving verses dangerous manoeuvres.

Patrick has a great deal of experience as a teacher which clearly shows. Patrick has helped me pass first time after failing 5 times with a previous Instructor. The LDC system provides a valuable resource for assisting with both practical and theory learning.

Patrick has been the best instructor I have worked with. He is able to effectively judge the shortcomings and root cause of the issues that the student is having and create a learning situation to match the needs of the student. He is very flexible to the learning needs of the student, whether it is a more theoretical or practical approach to learning, adjusts and challenges the student in every lesson. He was able to help me remove bad driving habits which I had developed from having worked with multiple instructors previously. He is excellent at keeping the student constantly aware during the lesson of any environmental factors which are being encountered for the first time or even multiple times.

Patrick helped me learn the local specificities in Darlington and develop the confidence to correct myself in case of a mistake in the very short time of 10 hours on the roads in Darlington. Overall, I have very much enjoyed my time learning with Patrick and I highly recommend him! The Driving Skills book has been useful in revising in the build-up to the exam and the driving videos on youtube were very useful beginning, setting the expectations for the upcoming lessons.

Patrick took time to establish my level and get me in my best possible condition to pass with confidence. He drove both the lessons forward but gave me every opportunity to challenge anything I wanted to revise. He was the perfect Driving Instructor. I think that the LDC videos helped me untold amounts, revise reference points and the Driving Skills Workbook best prepared me for my practical. The LDC YouTube Channel is easily navigated and fir for purpose.

Patrick has been a brilliant Driving Instructor: patient, understanding, knowledgeable and assuring, as well as good company and conversation.

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 is kind, very approachable and never felt I couldn't ask questions that wouldn't be answered clearly. The LDC Driving Skills workbook was excellent to refresh my memory, especially manoeuvres, and the LDC YouTube Channel really solidify what was learnt after the lesson.

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.

Patrick is a first class Driving Instructor. After 20 years of trying to learn to drive and many Driving Instructor, I passed my test on my 3rd attempt. Patrick's unique way of teaching and extreme patience make you feel at ease and able to concentrate and enjoy your lesson. Patrick is always on time for lessons and any information needed is provided immediately. Even when I doubted myself Patrick was always there to encourage me. 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 an excellent all round Driving Instructor, very patient and calm at all times. He is an extremely competent Driving Instructor who helped me relax from the start.

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.
