Joanna stewartJoanna stewart
1st Time Pass
Iain was a great instructor and teacher. He has a breadth and depth of knowledge beyond most instructors and has very high standards which ensures safe drivers that he teaches. I only used the LDC workbook for the ‘Show Me/Tell Me’ questions and for clutch work at the very beginning of my learning with Iain. I didn’t use any of the other materials as I think a lot of the learning comes from driving. Would recommend Iain, good instructor and alright chat.

Priscilla Adupong Priscilla Adupong
Passed 1st Time
One of the most useful things that helped me was the debrief at the end of each lesson. It allowed me to reflect how each lesson went and what I needed to improve on next lesson. Iain really helped me to overcome my anxiety on the road. Each lesson was person-centred, meaning it was about what I wanted to do and what I felt comfortable doing. Everything was perfect, no improvements.

Passed With Zero Faults
My instructor Iain was first class from day one. I’ve had lessons before with different instructors and never felt like I was picking anything new up but with Iain, he identified the areas that needed improvement and worked on them right from the start. The LDC Workbook was really helpful with the ‘Show Me/Tell Me’ questions but apart from that, I never really used it. When it came to my test, I was fully prepared and passed with zero faults.

Workbook very useful, online theory excellent. As an instructor, very supportive of the fact anxiety played a large part of my life. Pushed me to do things I struggled with but knew I was able to do. Took the time to talk through everything and more. When struggling in a lesson, knew when to take time to help me relax and continue on with the lesson. Excellent, would recommend.

Lewis CampbellLewis Campbell
Great Drive To Pass
From day one, Iain put me at ease straight away. He spoke me through what would be required for both the theory and practical stages of learning to drive. The LDC books, videos and learning methods were of a great help. Iain was a great instructor and explained things really well. He was always calm and made me feel relaxed and confident when driving. At all times, I found Iain’s driving methods to be excellent and he spoke me through any issues that I had and how best to sort them. Without Iain’s personality and teaching methods, I don’t think I would have had the confidence to pass. I would recommend Iain to everyone.
