Success Stories

Meet Marie
LDC Driving Instructor 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 History

Learner Driving Centres StoreIn 1991, Learner Driving Centres (LDC) was acquired by Teaching Driving Limited. LDC at this time operated in a similar manner to BSM with high street shops, and the instructor were charged a high weekly fee, making it difficult for them to earn a good income.

As a result, keeping instructors was very hard and for each new instructor gained we would often lose an existing one. This approach was seriously flawed and LDC went about developing a whole new driving school package for its instructors that put them in control and enabled them to earn more than with any other driving school or indeed when operating on their own. The approach LDC developed was quite unique at the time. It is only recently that the other two major driving schools in the UK have taken note and adopted one or two of the ideas we pioneered.

LDC was also the first driving school to develop a sophisticated training system for learner drivers incorporating a programme of carefully planned driving lessons with clear targets, modern teaching methods and innovative home study training materials that resulted in more actual practice time in the car and better prepared learners. This in turn resulted in learners making more rapid progress and passing in far fewer driving lessons. Whilst this new approach proved very popular with the public, the instructors whom LDC recruited at the time did not like the organised manner of the lessons, the ease with which learners could track their own progress or the reduction in driving lessons needed to pass the test. It soon became clear that it was better to train new instructors from the beginning rather than try to convert existing instructors who were set in their ways. As a result LDC decided to invest in the development of top quality driving instructor training, not unlike its training for learner drivers, to overcome this early set back.

Thus the innovative driving school package, along with the unique LD tuition system and state-of-the-art training resources for learner drivers, have helped to make LDC one of the most successful driving schools in the UK today. The other major ingredient to our success is, of course, our highly motivated and skilled driving instructors, most of whom trained and qualified with us. LDC has carefully grown its business over the past 20 years making sure it can properly support the instructors it has before adding any more. This is another reason why LDC is so successful.

Naturally, it has taken a large amount of time and money to achieve this but it has been very rewarding, with LDC becoming one of the largest national driving school in the UK. Nobody has invested more and nobody can match our record, both in terms of getting people qualified or in ensuring they have a secure and decent income thereafter.
