Passed 1st time
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!
