Changed my life.
Thank you Nick for changing my life! At 37 years old, 7 months pregnant, with a toddler at home who doesn't sleep, I thought it would be a good idea to learn to drive! Luckily for me, Nick was incredibly commited to making it happen and a superb tutor. Nick is very calm, kind and patient and he genuinely cares that you become a safe and competent driver. Pastoral care is intrinsic to his teaching style; he will work hard to find the right teaching style for you so you make progress every lesson and he will listen to your concerns so you can clear your mind and focus on getting the most out of your lesson. I genuinely believe he goes above and beyond for his students and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thanks Nick!

First Time Pass
Nick taught me to drive from scratch, his patience and ability to teach a reluctant driver was amazing. His primary focus is on the student and how they feel, he helped me through the process of learning to drive and never made me feel bad for making mistakes. I couldn't recommend Nick any higher!

Great Drive said the Examiner
Thank you Nick! Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to guide me through everything. The laid back yet properly structured approach suited me very well and made the whole experience much more enjoyable. Being able to practice whatever it was that was worrying me as many times as I’d like to on my lessons really did help me get the confidence I needed! Will definitely recommend to anyone I know looking for a brilliant instructor!

First Time Pass in Stormy Weather
Thanks so much Nick! I couldn't have asked for a better, more supportive instructor over the past few months. It was so helpful to be able to plan each lesson using the LDC resources, and discuss with Nick which ways I found easiest to learn so that we could tailor the lessons to suit me. I ended up really enjoying learning to drive which I'd never have expected, and I'll miss our lessons! Thanks again!

Brilliant First Time Pass
Thank you so much Nick for the last few months, you've been the best instructor i could have asked for. Your amazing approach to teaching was so supportive. You kept so patient and always made me feel comfortable. The technique of letting me choose and plan my own lesson each week, in the LDC hand book was a great way of making me a more confident and independent driver. I will definately be recommending you to all my family and friends. I am going to miss our laughs and chats, Thank you 😊😊

First Time with Nick and LDC
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Nick! He was extremely patient, understanding and so helpful and supportive throughout my lessons. My confidence had been knocked by a previous instructor and Nick's approach of allowing me to structure my own lessons and tackle things I was not sure of helped me massively. The idea of planning my own lessons and having him support in a variety of ways in each session was brilliant. I will 100% be recommending you to friends and family! Thank you so so much!

First Time Pass
I've had two previous driving instructors and you could say it’s been third time lucky for me regarding my recent one (Nick Cook). I had been with two previous driving schools and gave up my lessons on both occasions due to a mixture of me feeling the instructors were both stringing the lessons out for more money and also me feeling that their general approach didn’t have as much structure as I felt I needed. My instructor this time around (Nick) was from day one really honest around what he felt was the best way to learn, as well as open to taking suggestions on the best way to work through the lesson plans in the LDC driving skills Work book, which I felt also really helped me. Nick was my instructor for around 10 lessons and I can honestly say that his laid back, honest approach and general friendly manner is the main reason I can say I’ve just passed my test. I only wish I had an instructor like Nick the first time around as I would not of had to wait over 10 years to have the confidence to stick to it and pass my test. Many thanks Nick.I will definitely be recommending you and your driving school to friends and family.

1st Time Pass Just Nine Days After First Lesson
My instructor Nick was always calm and collected and always gave detailed descriptions on the subject we were covering and if I hadn't done the lesson / topic correctly he remained patient. The LDC program is perfect for someone like me, who wanted to learn to drive in a short period of time and at a reasonable price.
