First time Pass
It only took a few months tuition for me to pass my test first time the reason for this was Lu she calmed my nerves and she's very patient and explained everything thoroughly she was so professional at her job and I will miss our drives in the car!

First time pass
Thanks Lu for everything. I’d say the training I got from you was amazing I felt comfortable during the driving test. I knew all the routes going into it and what the examiner was looking for blind spots and checking the mirrors. You helped me with my manoeuvres which made me feel relaxed and comfortable going into the test and overall I learned very quickly with your training and I felt ready for my driving test straight away. Thanks again and hopefully I will run into you again sometime Ben.

6 years of trying, multiple driving instructors, thousands of £££’s out of pocket, having to re-sit my theory test and a pandemic to contend with should have been enough to put me off driving for life… But that of course was until I met Lu! I will completely hold my hands up here and openly admit without any form of embarrassment or shame, my stress and anxiety levels would usually shoot through the roof whilst behind the wheel of a car but from the very first lesson with Lu, it was clear that she had this natural ability to calm me, allow me to find my confidence and to come away from each lesson feeling both empowered and excited. Today is a day I can really shout loudly and proudly from the roof tops because at 09.20 this morning, I am delighted to announce that I finally ‘PASSED’ my driving test… YIPPEEE! Although it might be me holding the pass certificate today, this was definitely a team effort and if Lu’s taught me anything about this whole process, it’s ‘Believe in yourself’ Today is the day my life changed forever! - Thankyou LU!

Amazing instructor! I have had 3 instructors over the years and Lu is absolutely the best one. She is so calm and confident. I did a semi-intensive course with Lu and the first day we drove loops round my neighbourhood as I hadn’t driven for over 7 years and was feeling quite nervous. She was so patient and understanding with me. I’d recommend her to anyone looking at learning to drive, she will have you zooming about on your own in no time. The best bit is you will feel as calm and confident as she is due to her impeccable tutoring. I will miss our laughs in the car Lu, I’ve made a friend in you, and we’ll definitely keep in touch.

I would highly recommend Lu Tait as she has been an amazing driving instructor. She was very calm, had a lot of patience and would explain things as many times as needed, she taught me the skills to become a safe driver. Lu gave me the confidence to pass my test and to overcome my nervousness. Thank you very much Lu!

Passed First Time
Having had many lessons and never getting anywhere near my test previously, I started again with Lu. After a short intensive course I passed my test with only 4 minor faults. This turn around is due to Lu's flexible and friendly approach. She told me before I started 'it's all about you' and she meant it. She is skilled in tailoring her teaching style to suit her pupil as demonstrated by my change in success after such a short time with her. Thanks Lu, driving is a total life changer for me and I will be forever grateful for your guidance and patience!

Lu is a lovely person and fantastic teacher. I would definitely recommend her to everyone! So patient and encouraging, helped me to gain confidence and knowledge as we were driving day after day. Always very positive and cheerful. Amazing instructor! Passed first time with just under 20h of driving!

Tina HardieTina Hardie
Passed with only 2 faults!!
Lu is an amazing driving instructor; I highly recommend her to anyone who is nervous about starting to drive. She creates a calming, friendly and encouraging environment during well-structured and well explained lessons, which she kindly managed to work around my busy school schedule. I learned very well and quickly with Lu as she pushed me in the right places and supported my growing confidence with effective and thorough instructions, tips/tricks, and things to keep in mind come closer to the test. Due to lockdown, I practised my driving skills a lot in my car. Lu was great and organised the last few lessons to be done in it. This was especially helpful for me to prepare closer to the test as I was now confident in this car and passed with two minor driving faults. Thank you Lu for your support!

Passed with only 1 driving fault.
Choosing Lu to be my driving instructor was one of the best decisions I had ever made. Lu is incredibly professional, experienced, engaging and warm. Learning to drive is always a bit scary but Lu empowered me with confidence and encouraged my development into a safe and competent driver. Since passing with Lu, I have received several compliments on my driving style and safety, and this is only credit to Lu's fantastic tutelage. I have had two previous driving instructors and found they made me even more nervous! Lu creates a welcoming and approachable learning environment that is well structured with the LDC System. I looked forward to every lesson and with each one learnt new skills, techniques and grew ever more with confidence in my own driving abilities. Passing with only one minor drivers fault is testament to Lu's hard work, positive encouragement and precision in her training. The car itself was always of the highest cleanliness standards, especially so with the extra care taken for Covid safety measures. The car was very well looked after and driving it was highly enjoyable. I will recommend Lu to anyone and in fact, my husband is going to sign up to her waiting list for lessons in the new year. Learning with Lu was a real pleasure and was a learning journey that I will genuinely hold dear.

Anna Morrison Anna Morrison
First time pass
Learning to drive with Lu was very positive. This is because Lu made sure I was well prepared and comfortable with anything that could be brought up when taking the practical test and theory. Lu helped me get to grips with the roads and allowed me to build my confidence while on the roads.

Lee PryorLee Pryor
I passed with just one week of lessons
I just want to say a massive thank you to Lu! Couldn’t have passed without her help. She was great at helping me through my nerves from day one and through my test. She helped me enjoy learning to drive and now I’ve passed, I can’t stop driving! I’d 100% recommend Lu to anyone wanting to learn to drive. I passed on my first attempt with Lu, with just one week of lessons. She’s fun and friendly and really does care about her students. Thank you so much!

Dominika BartonDominika Barton
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!

Isabelle Woodhouse Isabelle Woodhouse
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.

Louie Louie
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!

Rachael Rachael
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!

James James
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!

I really enjoyed my lessons with Lu she was really patient and very helpful answering the millions of questions I had and reassuring me that I was doing it right. I'm really glad I had her as an instructor.

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 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
