Testimonials from some of my past pupils

I had done several hours of driving before but in a different country and Lu helped me with the transition to the UK road rules.  Lu helped me to effectively build my confidence and was patient when I continuously made mistakes. She turned driving from something scary and unreachable for me to an enjoyable experience where I proved to myself that I’m capable of anything. Even though I didn’t pass first time, Lu gave me motivation to push myself and believe in myself. Even though I didn’t pass first time, Lu gave me motivation to push myself and believe in myself. Moreover, she gave me advice that further prepared me to for independent, safe and eco driving in the future. I could not recommend Lu enough!

Lu has been a great instructor, she has a relaxed and supportive attitude but also explains everything clearly and gives precise feedback. She is patient and tailors her lessons to what you need while the LDC book and DVD are really helpful in preparing for lessons and looking back over what you’ve learned. I would definitely recommend Lu for anyone who wants to learn to drive safely and gain a full understanding of the roads.

Hester Hester
First time pass.
I had done about 20 hours of driving previously but still wasn't too confident in my driving ability. Lu taught at the perfect pace, especially as it was a semi-intensive course, and got me to drive in a variety of different places that allowed me to really build confidence at my own pace. I ended up passing first time! Would definitely recommend Lu as a teacher. She was very patient when I made (a lot of) mistakes and gives really informative comments that don't just prepare you for the test but safe driving overall.

Passed first time
I started driving lessons with Lu already having previous learning experience of around 20 hours. Immediately from my first 2 hours with Lu I knew that my driving ability would improve - the lessons were comfortable and informative and allowed myself as the learner to really track my progress and continue developing my skills. I did a total of 20 hours with Lu and achieved a near perfect pass on my driving test - a brilliant teacher as well as a great talker! Would absolutely recommend to anybody looking to learn to drive and a safe, calm and controlled way!

First time Pass
My experience of learning with Lu was a thoroughly enjoyable one. After having had lessons a few years back, Lu helped me quickly to remember all of what I’d thought I’d forgotten as well as to pick up skills that I had never previously learnt, which has improved the quality of my driving. Lessons were always fulfilling and despite my (occasional) faults, Lu still believed in me and helped me reach the goal of passing first time! I would definitely recommend learning with her, if not for the flexibility or for driving with an experienced instructor then for how much the lessons made me enjoy driving again. Thank you Lu!

Passed first time.
After being referred to Lu by a friend she was absolutely fantastic supporting me with learning to drive. We were able to pick a range of different dates and times to work for my schedule, which changes a lot. Not only did I pass my test 1st time, but even did so in the time she originally predicted. Really friendly and made the experience very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to friends. Thank you for all the support Lu.

Semi intensive course.
Lu's an amazing instructor to learn with; She helped me pick up driving extremely quickly on her semi-intensive course while keeping everything at a comfortable pace, I can't thank her enough for the time she's put in to help me pass, even going as far to booking a lesson on her day off before my test so I felt comfortable ready for the big day. Thanks Lu for helping me pass!

Overcame nerves & passed
'I couldn’t recommend LDC driving school more! I was incredibly anxious and nervous about driving and about finding a new instructor as I had been unsuccessful with my previous instructor. Lu went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and confident when driving, and I went on to pass my test even though I had very little faith in myself. She specifically focused on areas that I struggled more with and I found this a huge help, putting things simply so that they were much easier for me to remember! I couldn’t thank her enough for all of her help!'

I passed my driving test first time with Lu. I booked a semi intensive course which is great because you manage to learn at a quicker pace. Lu is a great instructor she is very friendly supportive and positive. I would recommend Lu to anyone that is looking for a driving instructor. Thankyou so much for all your help.

I passed with Lu
I would absolutely recommend LDC driving school. I Passed my test with Lu after 24 hours of driving over 9 days. I’m so thrilled to finally get my license as I started lessons over 8 years ago but was unsuccessful with 2 previous instructors. The whole experience has been amazing, I booked over the phone with LDC. I told them I had only 4 weeks before my theory test was due to expire and they quickly found my brilliant instructor Lu who managed to fit me in even though she had taken the week off as holiday. My first meeting with Lu was arranged before my first driving lesson. Meeting for a chat before actually driving put me at ease and Lu was so positive and told me I would get my licence. I actually believed her and knew she was the right instructor for me. I am quite a nervous and anxious person but Lu helped me so much with this. My biggest struggle was roundabouts and she was so patient and made it so easy for me to understand. I am so thankful to her and now my girlfriend wants to learn with her too. 5 star rating

Just wanted to thank LDC and especially Lu Tait for her professionalism,calm, friendly nature. She helped me through a very nervous week,she went above and beyond what I expected, I don't think I would have passed without her by my side. Thank you once again.Its been a pleasure.I will recommend her to anyone that needs a helping hand.
