Passed first time
I am thrilled that I passed my practical driving test first time, but it would not have been possible without Dawn, who supported me from the get go, Dawn is very patient and chilled and I never once felt uneasy or pressured with her as I have done with other instructors in the past. The LDC system of learning is an amazing structure to really lay down foundations for life. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking to get their driving done. Thank you again Dawn you went above and beyond and we did it!!

After struggling to progress in driving lessons with a previous instructor, and being told I should consider learning in an automatic, I contacted Dawn as a mature learner with little confidence. I couldn't have made a better choice. With her skills and buckets of patience, she managed to turn me from a bundle of nerves into somebody who enjoys driving and feels confident on the road.

Dawn is a conscientious, calm and reliable instructor, who I thought had a brilliant memory for where I was at in my learning. She was communicative between lessons and she would go above and beyond to help me reach my goal of passing the driving test.

The LDC method helped me to digest what I was learning and review the progress I was making, keeping me motivated. I can now look back on my lessons fondly and I’m thrilled to have gained the freedom that driving brings. If you're looking for quality driving tuition in great company, then look no further than Dawn.

At first, I was very nervous about it, especially as it's a lot of money to me and I wasn't sure who would be the best to teach me because I struggle when it comes to learning new things. I found LDC online and read how they use an alternative teaching method, this interested me because different teaching styles sometimes work for me and set LDC aside from other driving schools.

Brief explanation: the LDC method likes to use positivity to help students excel rather than pointing out and focusing solely on your faults. The day after phoning LDC to book my lessons, I received the driving skills booklet and paperwork in the post I also got a phone call from my driving instructor who had been allocated to me already-which I was very impressed with, to arrange driving lessons. Because I had already received the book before my lesson started, I was able to start revising pretty much immediately. When I started my lessons, it became apparent that I may find it difficult to combat the practical side of learning, However, Dawn had a brilliant way of teaching and sure enough, after a few lessons, Dawn had got me far from the nervous, unsure person that I was when I first got in the car.

Overall the whole thing was very organized Dawn was always very punctual and I felt always very informed. Every question was always answered no matter how ridiculous I thought the question may sound. The lessons on the DVD or YouTube and also in the book are so useful and so informative, you would be silly to use a different driving instructor and driving school. If you want to pass first time without issue and leave behind the woes and worries that come along with doing your driving lessons and test, you have to use Dawn Kitson and no alternative. Listen to her advice and do the homework beforehand, and you will pass, it's a simple as that. I honestly genuinely did not think that I would pass first time it was a tense decision to get on with actually learning to drive and getting my license. I Know without Dawn, my chances of Passing first time would have been next to none.

Dawn you really were amazing, thank you very much for your brilliant teaching, your perseverance because you truly delivered and immaculate service and I cannot be more grateful.

Quite simply I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor than Dawn. She made every lesson enjoyable and was endlessly patient with me – even when I despaired of ever mastering reverse bay parking! I’m really pleased I chose to go with LDC as their learning programme suited me really well and I liked being able to read the theory behind what I was learning. Dawn knew the programme inside out and had lots of useful tips and techniques to help me get to grips with everything. Dawn was always on time for every lesson and was happy to talk outside of our sessions as well to answer any questions I had. She was really encouraging and patient and made learning to drive much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. I would 100% recommend Dawn and LDC to anyone looking to learn to drive.

I’d been learning to drive “on and off” for around 15 years, continually struggling with my motivation and never quite clicking with my instructors. My partner had seen Dawn’s learning car around the city and suggested giving her a call. On meeting Dawn, she was really friendly, professional and took time to explain LDC’s learning style and what to expect from my lessons. Dawn has a great sense of humour and really calm manner which made me feel completely at ease despite my bouts of nervesness when driving. At the start of every lesson we would discuss the plan for the session and identify the key things to practice. Dawn really helped me to conquer my fear of roundabouts and help build my confidence and have conversation in my decisions. Lastly, the LDC’s videos were also really useful particularly on roundabouts, parallel parking and the test. “I can’t thank Dawn enough for all her support & guidance and have (and will continue) to recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive in a friendly, motivating and professional environment.”

Dawn was incredibly easy to understand and get along with throughout. Her knowledge and calm demeanour put me completely at ease, allowing me to learn in a stress free environment. The lessons were tailored to focus on the areas that I felt needed the most work and did not just stop at “this is needed to pass the test”. Dawn has gone above and beyond to give me the tools I need to be a safe and aware driver for life- could not recommend highly enough! PASS WITH DAWN!

I struggled for weeks to find a suitable instructor as I wanted an intensive driving course and other people were unreliable. My mum found LDC and we instantly jumped at it as I was keen to pass quickly before university. The 3 hour lessons were the perfect length and Dawn was really patient and informative so I quickly improved my basic skills over the 20 hours. She made the lessons enjoyable and helped me tweak little things to become a better driver. I would highly recommend Dawn as she is calm and very reliable as an instructor, she made the experience easy and exciting and I wouldn’t have passed so quickly without her.

Refresher lessons
I started lessons with Dawn as I am a previously inexperienced but qualified driver who had also been in a serious car crash (not my fault!), and I was extremely anxious about getting back behind a wheel. However, a new job meant that it had become necessary. I met Dawn prior to starting lessons to discuss what I wanted to achieve and why I felt nervous. We agreed on a plan of 3 x 2-hour classes, which would include me driving to and from my new office, about 30 minutes away. This worked well. Dawn is a calm, clear and sympathetic instructor who understood my anxieties and worked to build my confidence, even providing relevant between class reading. I am now back driving and building experience and confidence. I thoroughly recommend Dawn to anyone learning to drive for the first time, or like me, those who are nervous about restarting.

After deciding I needed to learn to drive, I browsed through Facebook and Dawn Kitson appeared. Friendly looking face I decided, so I made contact. BEST THING I COULD HAVE DONE! From meeting for the first time I felt at ease and eager to start. Me being a ‘mature’ student she was totally unphased and professional. Her patience and calm persona helped me immensely, especially when my ‘skills’ were terrifying! Her ability to remind me of what I had achieved rather than what went wrong, built my confidence hugely. Because of this I relaxed more. Dawn is no ordinary instructor. Her laid back persona always leaves you feeling positive and she really is fun to learn with. With her constant support via messages, video links and the fabulous workbook, I PASSED! I FEEL FANTASTIC! Not only have I learnt a new skill to aid my independence, I had the pleasure of meeting Dawn. I would certainly (and already have!) recommended Dawn and LDC DRIVING METHODS. She really is 5 star 😀

I found Dawn to be a very good instructor. She was gentle in her demeanour and yet clear in her instructions. I was able to take on board what she was saying to me over time. I would recommend Dawn to any learner. Thank you Dawn

Passed first time
I passed first time with only 2 minors from LDC. I was recommended Dawn and LDC from three separate people so looked further into their methods. The use of the at home study booklet and DVD were very appealing to me, as I knew very little about driving or cars these gave me the confidence each lesson to learn new things as I could read up and watch the DVD before our lessons which helped immensely. A very important part of learning to drive for me was finding the right instructor. Once I had contacted Dawn, we arranged for her to visit me to look at the different courses available, after this I knew Dawn was the right instructor for me. Her patience and friendliness kept me going! We went at the pace that suited me and if I didn’t understand something we would keep working on it until it clicked. She wasn’t just teaching me to pass the test, she was teaching me to be a safe and confident driver. I would recommend Dawn and the LDC system to anyone I know who is wanting to learn to drive. I cannot thank Dawn enough for the support she gave me and fun times we had!

Dawn is an amazing instructor, she is always so encouraging and positive but at the same time always makes sure you are really aware of what you can do better and prompting you when needed. I was always really confident that we were making progress and covered everything I needed to know as we kept checking the workbook throughout the lessons. No complaints at all really 😀

Dawn is an amazing instructor. From the first day she made me feel at ease and adapted really well to my nerves, keeping me calm and encouraging me along the way. Dawn’s Teaching techniques soon made me become comfortable behind the wheel. At the end of each lesson she would re-cap what went well and what I could think about for the following lesson. During my lessons we would take a look at the workbook to see what I was achieving and what I could go on to learn next, which really helped. Dawn has a wonderful personality, so easy to get on with. I would definitely recommend Dawn to everyone. Thanks for helping me pass!! I’m so happy I “passed with Dawn”.

Having stopped for a year after a couple of confidence-crushing lessons with another instructor, and feeling much less than positive about driving in general, I found out I needed to get my licence over a three month period for work. Dawn was the perfect woman for the job. Her approach was calm and reassuring. We took it at the pace I needed, and the LDC framework enabled me to prepare in advance of each lesson using the book and DVD, developing my understanding of best practice and the Highway Code; this preparation made me feel a lot more confident when I sat in the driving seat for the next lesson! Dawn was supportive and honest with feedback and always encouraged me to evaluate my own progress. I feel that this reflective style of learning has made me a safe and considerate road user. I got my license within the time frame I needed for work - I now feel confident on the road and had some great chats along the way! Thank you so much Dawn - I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family in the future!

I passed first time with a 30 hour semi intensive course from LDC.
Dawn was an excellent instructor. A very calm, friendly and adaptable instructor which taught me all of the necessary skills and maneuver’s to pass my test in two months. Having tried to learn to drive 10 years ago, this experience was completely enjoyable and different. Dawn’s experience coupled with LDC’s at home study booklet and DVD were a great combination for learning to drive and will honestly make you feel more confident and prepared before your lessons. I fully recommend Dawn as an instructor, I never thought I would be here two months later having passed my test and owning my first car!

Thank you Dawn for an enjoyable experience, I am happy I have passed!
