The amazing LD System and online learning hub

Pass quicker for less with the incredible LD System. The LD course programme is made up of 23 carefully crafted lesson topics based on over 30 years experience of successfully helping people to learn to drive. Watch and study how to perform each driving task related to your next practical driving lesson topic and/or watch it afterwards to remind you of what you have learnt. Save time and money on unnecessary explanations in car. Make more rapid progress and see your confidence grow as you mark off each of the targets in your LDC driving skills workbook and/or online in your students learning hub.

The LDC students learning hub is also the ideal place to study and prepare for your Theory and Hazard Perception Test under the watchful guidance of your local LDC driving school instructor.

Nothing is left to chance and you know exactly where you are in the programme at anytime. You can see for yourself when you are ready for the driving test, what you have covered and what remains outstanding.

Driving courses and lessons

Whether you want to learn in a week on an intensive driving course or spread the process out over several weeks you are unlikely to find a more cost effective way to learn to drive or develop those all important skills needed for a lifetime of safe driving. LDC driving school instructors can offer you a range of driving courses and lesson packages to suit your needs. The four driving courses listed below all include:

  • access to the LDC online students learning hub (see above),

  • the LDC driving skills workbook and DVD video set (see above),

  • the provision of a driving test as part of the price.

Alternatively, your local LDC driving school instructor can offer you “pay as your go” driving lessons with discounts for block bookings. The choice is yours.

Take up to 40% fewer lessons and save up to £600

Say goodbye to never ending weekly lessons and say hello to an LDC course with test – the FASTER, SMARTER way to learn to drive

According to the last major survey conducted by the DVSA (the Government body who conduct the driving test) people learning to drive purchase on average 52 hours of professional driving tuition each plus take on average a further 12 hours of practise with mum or dad. With an LDC driving course or driving lessons using the LD System this figure is more likely to be closer to 30 hours of tuition – thus potentially saving you up to 22 hours of tuition (or about £600).

Remember 50 cheap lessons and a few test failures will always cost you more than 30 reasonably priced lessons and a first time pass with your local LDC driving school.

The combination of the DVD and workbook is pure genius

The LD system worked wonders for me. The combination of the DVD and workbook is pure genius. Iain my LDC driving school instructor helped a lot, his patience and personality were amazing.

I would recommend him to like … everyone.

Passed  first time on a One Week Pass course

Before we even began, Suzanne outlined the pros and cons of the LDC One Week Pass Course compared to the other courses available. Due to my own circumstances, I really had no choice but to select this course.

LDC driving schools have a really good learning programme focused on module-based learning rather than a checklist of driving elements. In my case, due to my endless questioning of my abilities, it was reassuring that Suzanne allowed me the freedom to revisit and refine areas I felt I was lacking in, although she did help to push me on when I was ready for the next steps.

Personally, I was a nervous wreck and if it wasn’t for Suzanne’s calming and positive nature I don’t think I would have passed.

Suzanne was an absolute pleasure to learn from. Her qualities as a teacher allowed me to enhance my understanding of the information outlined in the LDC driving skills workbook/DVD and her unwavering ability to stop me from underestimating myself establishes that she cares for the learner foremost. All the plaudits go to this great instructor and I have no qualms regarding recommending her to other learners.

Thank you, Suzanne, for all your hard work. Best wishes for the future.

The LD System was such a breath of fresh air

My LDC driving school instructor Steve has been a very patient and calm instructor. I have had around 25 hours with a previous instructor, and in just over 20 hours with Steve I learned more than I could of imagined and passed first time. I am over the moon with the help and support that Steve provided and my only regret is that I didn’t find him sooner.

The LD System was such a breath of fresh air for me and it was so nice to know Steve always had these learning materials in the car for us to take a moment, stop and review ready for the next step.

Passed my test with zero minors – on a Semi-intensive

I took an LDC semi-intensive driving course with Garry. I’d had driving lessons several years ago but after a series of fails it completely destroyed my confidence and I packed it in for 5 years. After my course with Garry, I passed my test with zero minors! This is a testament to Garry’s skills as an instructor.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable few weeks learning – Garry was always punctual, very good at explaining concepts and rules, an excellent, gentle and kind teacher and, most of all, patient.

I especially like the LDC approach of using the driving skills workbook to self-reflect and identify my own areas of strength and weakness. It really made me question why I did certain things and helped me become a confident and safe driver. It can be difficult to self-evaluate, but this approach really lets the information and skills gained stick with you. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking to learn to drive.

Thank you again.
