Success StoriesMeet Marie
I joined LDC after doing a whole load of research into all the different companies offering all sorts of promises and I can honestly say it has been the best experience of my life.
I received up to date information week on week on how my course would run and there was no pressure to finish any of the modules within a certain time limit, after all I still had a full time job to do. My work was marked and each module sent through the post very efficiently. I was then told how to proceed. Help was always available either by phone or on the net via the LDC forum which is set up for all the trainees just like me all going through the same experiences, Its a great place to meet and chat to others doing the same thing all across the country.
I was allocated my very own tutor whose help was fantastic and he helped me to continue all the way through my course. I can now say with great pride that I am now a qualified advanced driving instructor and the rewards are fantastic.
Every day I drive on the roads with my pupils, displaying my LDC logos and my name and I just want everyone to see its the best driving school in the country, because believe me Only the BEST will do for LDC.
I chose LDC because they have a different out look to any other driving school. They had a genuine interest in me and my business (to be the best). I found the unique LDC instructor training system worked very well combining plenty of home study with a very high standard of training that I received from my tutor. The support from the training team was fantastic always there whenever I need them guiding me through any problems that I had every step of the way, and still are. Thanks LDC.
I have received the best training available out there to become a driving instructor, the service is fantastic and the LDC training method is unique. I received help and support throughout the whole time of my training. I would highly recommend anyone to learn with LDC whether you are a potential driving instructor or you just want to learn how to drive.
LDC (Learner Driving Centres)
LDC was established over 20 years ago and is now one of the largest national driving school in the UK. Like all genuine driving schools, training people to become driving instructors represents a relatively small part of our business. However, it is a vitally important part because the well taught trainees of today become the highly regarded driving instructors of tomorrow. We are not involved in mass driving instructor training and we only train sufficient new driving instructors to meet our realistic plans and the numbers we know we can support both in the training process and the driving school.
In 2010 according to the DSA Annual Report 2009/2010 the market for driving tests and therefore driving lessons dropped by 7.7%. Despite this drop we saw a increase in the number of enquiries for LDC driving lessons which has continued throughout 2010. This increase in demand has been fuelled by the growing reputation of the instructors we have, the unique way in which we train people to drive using the LD System of driving tuition and the award winning software theory products we provide. As a result, we are looking to recruit more driving instructors and we prefer to train our own because of the way in which we operate. If you are good with people and take pride in your driving this may well be the ideal job for you.
Also according to the above report the DSA saw a 12.8% drop in the number of applications to become an Approved driving instructor (ADI) thus showing that fewer people are now training to become driving instructors.
