Passed first time with Stuart
I struggled a lot with anxiety and driving and having previously having done tests and failing due to stress, I thought I’d never pass. Stuart has been a lively instructor that helped me get over my anxiety through the use of routines. Very patient and so easy to get along with! Not only are you learning to drive safely and easily, but you also have a good laugh. Would 10/10 recommend!

FIRST TIME PASS
I can highly recommend Stuart. He is very friendly and positive, yet at the same time demanding and honest about one’s abilities. I felt at ease during his lessons and could see myself improving quite fast. He understood my problem areas and managed to tackle them in the most efficient way. I came from a different instructor and there were a few things that I really struggled with and he explained them to me in a way that just made sense. I wasn’t expecting to pass on the first try but with his help and guidance I got very well prepared for it and I was calm and composed enough to do it. Thank you, Stuart!

Thanks Stuart, the best instructor I ever had, perfect learning technique. I could have passed with no faults but I didn’t pay attention on a flashing 20 πŸ™‚ meaning I passed with just 1 minor! Thanks Again

FIRST TIME PASS
I found lessons with Stuart to be really enjoyable. He is always very friendly and easy to get along with. He is really good at finding techniques and methods to get the best out of you and to help make you understand things clearly. Some of my friends are learning just now with other instructors but don’t have all the online resources or a workbook that I was provided with and which I found really useful. I am so glad I learned with Stuart’s LDC Driving School

Kieran Kieran
The only instructor I would go with!
After only starting to drive in June, I passed just 8 weeks later thanks to the patience and hard work of Stuart. I have known him for 17 years (basically since I was born) Other people call him a great driving instructor but I just call him Dad. Thank you.

Very Patient and Considerate Instructor
I could not have asked for a more kind, patient and considerate driving instructor than Stuart. With the LDC System Learning is made fun, with plenty of supporting materials to guide you on your learner journey- I certainly had a lot of fun using the system! I am very appreciative of Stuart’s LDC for helping me pass my test and thoroughly recommend Stuart to anyone looking into driving lessons.

Danielle FaganDanielle Fagan
Supportive Instructor
I took driving lessons with Stuart having had little success with my previous instructor. Lessons were far more progressive that before and I was encouraged to develop leading to a pass with Stuart. Stuart is very encouraging but firm when needed meaning I learned so much more.

1ST TIME PASS
I really enjoyed my lessons with Stuart. They were very informative and provided all the information I needed to pass first time and done in a calm manner. No matter what happens Stuart never shouts at you unlike what I hear about so many other driving instructors. The LDC videos, training material and workbook are second to one and really helped between lessons. Stuart is friendly, approachable and I had a good laugh with him whilst learning. He was always very punctual and I would recommend him to everyone. Thanks Stuart I couldn’t have done it without you.

FIRST TIME PASS
I went to Stuart after moving house and with my test already booked. I had been told by my previous instructor that I was test ready and had therefore already booked my test. After carrying out an assessment drive Stuart informed me I was not and that I would have to put my test back. I was very disappointed but reluctantly agreed. I am so glad that I listened to Stuart and went with his recommendations as I can now see that I was not ready and was not driving to the required standard of being a safe driver. After extra practice with Stuart and helpful hints and tips I passed today at my first attempt. Stuart was really nice during lessons and very clear with the areas I had to improve on. I got on very well with him and was able to enjoy my lessons rather than stressing over them. Highly recommended.

When I started to learn to drive it didn’t come naturally. Stuart very patiently and expertly taught me everything and helped overcome the nerves that I suffer from. He was great with me and took the lessons at my pace without Rushing me but still managed to push me at the same time. I now have my own car and independence that it brings. If you are looking for an instructor choose STUART.

I passed first time with Stuart with just one minor! Stuart is brilliant, very prompt, excellent at giving instruction and was always clear so I knew exactly what I was doing which made the Learning experience so enjoyable. Stuart has an early morning 7am slot for me and it was brilliant, getting me used to driving on busy roads as well as some daylight and dark driving. It really made me a far better driver and more comfortable in all driving situations. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

Laura BowlerLaura Bowler

I would recommend Stuart as a driving instructor as he is a positive, calm instructor who really wants you to succeed. I liked the LDC way of teaching also learning away from the car. As I am a visual learner through the use of videos and the workbook it allowed me to learn and use the time in the car to best effect. I liked Learning with Stuart so much I recommended him to all my friends.

Going to miss Stuart
Driving lessons with Stuart is really one of the best experiences ever. He is a right laugh as well as a brilliant driving instructor. His way of teaching is beyond incredible and I feel like I really got my money’s worth. LDC offer resources that aren’t available to other learners but they really helped with my progress. He made me realise and improve all the mistakes I made and helped me as a person not just a driver. Thank you Stuart.

Stuart was extremely helpful and was constantly giving encouragement which is very reassuring as it is the best way to learn.

I passed today with Stuart. I found the LDC method very helpful as it aided me in my learning by allowing me to revise techniques and manoeuvres in preparation for the next lesson. Additionally it pushed me and lessons never felt stagnant or boring and I was always making progress. Stuart was simply outstanding. I would highly recommend lessons with Stuart at LDC.

Passed 1st Time
I came to Stuart for a 30 hour semi intensive course after developing bad habits before. Stuart was able to quickly eradicate these with plain and simple explanations and demonstrations. I felt 100% comfortable and trusted him because of the constructive feedback he gave and the calm manner he has when teaching. I would recommend Stuart to everyone as he got me a first time pass and I enjoyed every lesson. I passed with just one single minor fault when I didn’t think that was even possible. I couldn’t have been taught by a better person. Thanks

I would recommend Stuart's Intensive Course as it has equal measures of me being pushed as well as support from Stuart. The whole experience was fun. The LDC DVDs were very helpful to introduce the basics which Stuart then expertly trained out. A great experience.

Highly recommended instructor
Stuart was a fantastic instructor, he was patient, provides useful and easy to understand instruction and guidance. My lessons were really enjoyable.

Excellent Instructor
I found the combination of the LDC training material and lessons with Stuart to be very productive and the best way to learn. I learned very quickly and Stuart has been an excellent instructor throughout working hard to firstly teach me how to drive and latterly helping improve my tendency to be hesitant. Thank you Stuart.

PASS WITH NO FAULTS.
I took lessons with Stuart following two previous test failures. He gave Friendly and sound advice and the lessons were very enjoyable. 8/8/17 I didn't expect to have as much success as I did but thanks to Stuart I have become a much better and safer driver having gone from failing previous tests to passing with zero minors.

Nadia CummingNadia Cumming
Semi intensive course pass
I had just turned 17 and was nervous about learning to drive. Stuart is very approachable and helpful and if an issue arose with my driving he was happy to address it. He took into account my worries and sought to fix them. The LDC videos and workbook were very clear and informative and were really useful especially at the beginning before the course started. I also used the LDC theory material and prepared religiously with them which helped me pass both theory and practical tests first time. THANK YOU!!!

Jennifer SavageJennifer Savage
I passed!!!!
I loved the LDC course material as it made Lessons a really structured way to learn. I was able to see how to do the practical steps before the lesson started. The workbook was great to reflect back on and to monitor my progress. Before starting with Stuart I had failed my test a number of years ago and was a self confessed nervous driver. Stuart has just the right balance of patience and support but was able to encourage and support when needed. He's improved my confidence in driving, eliminated all of the bad habits I had and he has a great way of following through the book with tasks to make you feel like you are progressing and ready for test.

Stuart is a very thorough and fair instructor. He is a lot of fun and makes driving less scary. There is so many good things that I could say about him but I just don't have the time or space on here to write all of the positives. I really enjoyed the LDC way of learning and the videos were a fantastic way to learn extra. I am going to really miss my Tuesday afternoon lesson with Stuart but I have my licence now!

Tracy ReidTracy Reid
Thank you
Stuart, my instructor, was really patient and helpful particularly if I did not find something very easy. He would find another way to explain and train things so that I understood. The workbooks were a good prompt to memorise manoeuvres when out with lessons. Thank you for your guidance and patience.

Rachael MorrisonRachael Morrison
Fantastic Experience
I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor than Stuart. He was very patient whilst I learned and I had such a fantastic experience making learning fun. He put up with my emotional breakdowns, the tears, the disbelief I had in myself but always was there for me and to help me recover. I will really miss the lessons but am so glad I had an instructor who was caring, funny, kind and was there for me to lean on when in difficult situations and always had a comment to make me laugh, smile and to keep going.

Peter GovePeter Gove

Stuart was a great instructor and took me from zero driving to a pass in just over a week. The lessons were delivered at a good pace and I would definately recommend the intensive course to anyone.

Ewan EssonEwan Esson
Moved to Stuart after failing with another instructor
Stuart helped me pass my driving test after my first fail 6 months ago. I had no lessons in between but in just a few weeks Stuart had corrected the faults I had and made sure there was no mistake this time. I can't believe the difference in Lessons between my first instructor and Stuart. Stuart's lessons are fun, he was always on time, always chatty and friendly but tough with me when I needed it. Stuart was better than my last instructor in every way and I loved his car it was so easy to learn in. I would rate him 5*.

Caitlin WaddellCaitlin Waddell

Melissa HopeMelissa Hope
Passed First Time with LDC Semi Intensive Course
I was a self confessed nervous driver but thanks to Stuart's excellent tuition I passed first time! Stuart is fantastic and was extremely patient with me and had a calming effect on me throughout. He is so friendly. I learned using the unique LDC method which is very good as it gives you an incentive to do well and continually motivates you meaning you get more out of the lessons than normal driving instruction. Stuart is fantastic, he helped me pass first time!
