Ian has been an incredible driving instructor from start to finish. Ian creates a calm, relaxed atmosphere in the car which enables students to learn fast and confidently. His composed, confident demeanor enables him to create a feeling that when something goes wrong, you feel confident in solving the problem without being judged. Thus, this settles many of the nerves going into your first lesson. His knowledge of the roads shines through in every lesson, enabling any student to pick up from his advice swiftly and carefully. Not only will Ian make you a test ready driver, but he will make you a confident driver on the roads by making you experience moments that will challenge your abilities, making you a more natural driver. He constantly encourages your improvement and refines your abilities swiftly. He is also a funny, personable person, who makes every drive a pleasure! I would recommend Ian to any prospective driver, as his calm, assertive approach allows you to pass quickly and effectively. Thank you so much for helping me pass!

A Great First Time Pass
I’ve really enjoyed learning to drive with the LDC System. I don’t think I would have passed without Ian and all the help and support he gave me, telling me where I need to improve and what my strengths and weaknesses were. Also explaining what to do in different situations. I’ve honestly loved learning with LDC and lan I would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn. I can’t thank him enough for helping me pass my test.

Ian is the perfect driving instructor, he is friendly, patient and encouraging. He makes sure you are getting the most out of the time spent with him and is more than understanding of any limitations or struggles you may have whilst learning. Ian’s positive and determined outlook provides a comfortable and relaxed environment for you to perform to the best of your abilities so that you can pass quickly and safely. I would highly, highly recommend Ian to anyone and everyone. Thanks so much Ian!

1st TIME PASS !!!!!
Having had some time away from driving and feeling low on confidence, Ian was a brilliant teacher who put me at ease straight away. His structured approach and knowledge about driving around Winchester and surrounding areas really helped me learn effectively and he was able to answer any questions I had. His calm manner in the car and feedback during the lessons was really helpful too and by the time it came to the test I felt confident and well prepared. I would 100% recommend Ian to anyone looking for a driving instructor!

After some time off learning to drive, I found learning with Ian and LDC a great experience - honest, reliable and definitely helped my confidence with driving - would (and have) recommend to anyone!

Passed 1st Time
I used Ian for some extra confidence while waiting for my practical test to be done back home, and I couldn’t recommend his services enough! His relaxed manner allowed me to stay calm and feel more confident in the car. Ian really tailors the lessons to the areas you feel are needing the most work and ensure that you are confident and safe when completing them before moving on! I would highly recommend using Ian to both learn to drive or to regain confidence again on the roads Maxine

I took the 1 week intense driving course with Ian. Having 2 years experience on the roads on motorcycles I picked up driving quite quick with Ian's assistance and advice. Very enjoyable and educational lessons with a relaxed and comfortable learning atmosphere. Kind Regards

Great 1st Time PASS !!!!
Lessons with Ian improved my driving technique and most of all my confidence. I had some driving experience previously but did not learn the test routes as well and found this extremely beneficial for the test. I feel that I am a much better driver now and would recommend Ian to anyone who wants a supportive, decent instructor who makes you feel at ease and is really personable. Thanks so much, Corrie.

Ian was a fantastic instructor from start to finish. His methods are great and his way of explaining situations and what we were doing made a huge difference to me. After every lesson it felt that I had learnt something completely new, and interesting. Because of the calm and clear way he presents the lessons this then made me a lot more confident and calm when I took my test.

Thank you very much Ian, for helping me with my Driving Lessons, and getting me to pass! FIRST TIME. I really appreciate your time and effort in helping with learn to drive. Take care and thank you again for helping me to pass my test.

One Week Intesive Course - Passed First Time
I passed my test after five days with Ian, who is a brilliant instructor. He was the first person I contacted after reading his testimonials and I couldn’t recommend him more highly to anyone reading this. His extensive knowledge and experience with driving shines through in his confidence-boosting teaching style and patient, professional manner. There was a lot to take in (one-week intensive course, no prior experience) but lessons with Ian were constantly enjoyable as he’s a ray of sunshine to be around. I didn’t expect the LDC book & DVD to be as helpful as they were, especially in-between lessons. I credit Ian's calm approach for passing first time as he made driving feel natural. Thank you again for teaching me how to drive; I’m grateful for the way you went above and beyond and wish you the best. Kind regards, Aeysha.

One week Intensive Course & Passed first time
I did a 30 hour intense driving course, just over two weeks with Ian. To start with he helped settle my nerves after a previous bad experience with learning to drive. Ian gave me more confidence and was a great teacher. Ian’s knowledge and the LDC workbook helped me prepare for my practical test. Ian’s teaching style was very calm and pleasant. If I ever made a mistake it was never a case of criticism, we would just try again. I would highly recommend Ian to any new learner or anyone, like myself, who has had a previously bad experience. I am very thankful for Ian’s coaching as it enabled me to pass first time. Thanks again Ian for all your help.

I can’t thank Ian enough for what he has help me achieve. For someone that had a fear of driving he instantly put me at ease. Ian pushed me and supported me where needed and he was always positive in all lessons. The LDC book was a great help when it came to refreshing my knowledge. Anyone looking for a driving instructor I couldn’t recommend Ian enough. A smashing guy. (I’m actually going to miss my lessons) but so glad to now be driving. Thanks again Ian.

Thanks for helping me pass my test
Thanks so much Ian for helping me pass my test. The intensive week was fantastic even though my nerves got the better of me on the test. I passed eventually though and couldn't be happier. Ian made me feel relaxed and confident in my own abilities. I told Ian how I learn best and he took this on board during my lessons. Highly recommended. Thanks again.

I passed my driving Test
Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test. I was really lacking in confidence before hand, and had quite high anxiety about being behind the wheel of a car after a bad experience when I was 17. Your calm, cheerful and relaxed lessons helped me feel comfortable again. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my concerns and ensure that I was happy in my lessons but also being pushed to improve. I highly recommend the LDC method with the workbook and Ian as an instructor. If you're still teaching in 15 years I'll send my daughter to you! :) Laura

Thanks for helping me to PASS my test
Hi Ian, Until I found Ian through LDC, I had been in and out of driving lessons for 12 years, continually delaying taking my test. With Ian's instruction over a few months I finally gained the confidence to take the test and pass! And using the LDC Workskills Book helped me focus on my learning and was a great guidance ready for my next lessons. Ian was always calm, clear and patient in our lessons. I would highly recommend him to anyone at any level of driving experience. Thank you

Hi Ian, Thank you so much for teaching me how to drive. After having a bad experience when I first started learning to drive with a different Driving Instructor my confidence couldn’t have been any lower, But you made me feel so comfortable and confident in a matter of a couple of lessons. I felt like I was never going to get there, but I did get there, and I Passed First Time, thanks to you. Honestly you are the best Driving Instructor in the area I would recommend you to anyone, and you also make learning to drive fun and light hearted. Thank you again! Molly Green.
