Louise was amazing! My lessons were enjoyable, productive and, thanks to fantastic teaching, I passed within two months. Would highly recommend!
I don’t even know where to start with this lovely lady! I’ve had a couple of driving instructors and Louise is by far the best. I really could not have done this without her. She pushed me when I needed to be pushed and alway kept reminding me that I can do this! It was never boring! Sometimes it was like just catching up with a friend, talk about our weeks as well as learning at the same time (I love a chin wag!) Louise is everything you’d want in a teacher, patient, understanding and always comes to lesson saying ‘so what do you want to do this lesson?’ Which I never had before. I could go on forever about how amazing she is. I don’t have a bad word to say about her. It’s been so much fun, thanks Lou!xxx
After 16 lessons, I passed my driving test! This is all thanks to Louise. She has boosted by confidence and my driving skills. I would recommend her to anyone as she is the best.
Lessons with Louise were always productive as well as enjoyable and I always felt comfortable whilst driving. She boosted my confidence which has been extremely beneficial for me now when driving alone. Would highly recommend, thank you!
Louise is such a knowledgeable and friendly instructor, helping me to pass 1st time with confidence – my family and friends all couldn’t recommend someone better x
Louise is the best driving instructor ever!!!! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and patient but she has the ability to push me out of my comfort zone and gave me the confidence to believe that I could pass my test (first time)
When I wobbled she actively put herself out to help me regain my confidence. I felt happy and completely comfortable in her company
I would highly recommend Louise to anyone.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for me xxxx
I am really glad that I learnt with Louise. She’s a great teacher who is understanding, patient and relaxed! I’ve really enjoyed my lessons and looked forward to them every week. She always gave clear instructions and helped me correct my mistakes so I could learn where I went wrong and improve for next time. Now I’m loving driving and the freedom and independence I’ve gained from passing my test, all because of Louise! 🙂 Cheers, Sam
I really enjoyed learning to drive with Louise, the lessons were always lots of fun and she really helped to build my confidence so that by the time I took my test I felt completely comfortable driving and fully prepared. Thank you so much Louise for everything, and especiallyfor being so patient and supportive!!
After a few months of lessons and passing my driving test on my first attempt, it is safe to say that Louise is an amazing driving instructor and I would recommend her tuition to anyone. Thank you for a brilliant driving experience and your huge array of knowledge which, no doubt, I shall be putting to good use in the future! Thank you, Louise Thanks again, Owen 🙂
Louise, We are very pleased and proud that Gavin has passed his test on the first attempt. Thank you for teaching Gavin to learn to drive, he told us that you are an excellent teacher. We will be recommending you to others. Thanks and good luck with your other students
I’m so pleased that Louise taught me to drive, she is a great teacher and very patient and I enjoyed learning to drive with her. I will miss our lessons, as we did have a lot of laughs on them. I am looking forward to my pass plus lessons. I would thoroughly recommend her as a fantastic driving instructor!
Thank you so much Louise! You’re a fantastic teacher and I felt so comfortable and happy learning with you. You’ve given me so much more confidence when I’m driving and I actually felt relaxed during my test because of it. Had a great time on all our lessons, will definitely be recommending you to everyone! Thank you 🙂
Learning to drive with Louise has been a fantastic experience. Her patience and encouraging and friendly manner make her a great driving instructor and meant that I always looked forward to lessons. Thanks to Louise I feel confident and safe on the road; I would definitely recommend her.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help with my driving! You’re an amazing teacher, you not only made me 100 times more confident but you made me feel really relaxed and feel like a driver! I’ve enjoyed my lessons and I will miss our laughs and driving chats! You’re amazing!! 🙂 Jac x
Louise really is an amazing driving instructor. She is so amazing she doesn’t need to advertise, she doesn’t need to have lessons in her car to get her number and name out there, she will quite happily teach you in your own car. You leave the lessons wanting to pay more the service is so good. Instead of going to a cheap driving school just get Louise, she won’t drag your lessons on to make more money, most of her drivers passed from scratch in 25 to 30 hours then all done and dusted.
In just one lesson she will have your confidence built, driving safely, and getting you leaving the lesson knowing how much you’ve progressed. She really is the top driving instructor around. Thank you very much Louise for getting me ready for my test and completing the pass plus.
Louise was a new instructor to the family, teaching our youngest daughter. Kate needed a lot of encouragement to complete the process of learning to drive, but I’m delighted to say that with Louise’s teaching skills, moral support and sense of humour Kate did actually stick at it……..and pass first time (beating her sister) what a result!! Thank you Louise
Louise is an amazing driving instructor, never thought i was capable of passing first time but she made that possible! I Enjoyed every lesson and never felt out of my comfort zone when learning, Louise makes sure you are fully confident in everything you do.
She goes the extra mile to make sure you are learning for life and not just for the test. Couldn’t of asked for a better instructor, have been/will be recommending to everyone!’
I am so glad to have had Louise as my driving instructor. She put me at complete ease from my very first lesson and taught me how to be a confident but safe driver. I looked forward to every lesson and certainly miss them now! Louise is kind, patient and very funny and we had lots of giggles during my time learning. Thank you for everything Louise!
Louise I would like to say a big thank you for teaching me how to drive and helping me pass my test. You are an awesome instructor and I cannot recommend you enough! I was so nervous to begin with but you made me so comfortable behind the wheel. Thank you once again!!!
Thankyou so much for teaching me how to drivee Louise! Im so happy! ive really enjoyed it! Thankyou for putting up with me and for helping me pass first time! i would recomend you too anyone who wants to learn to drive!
Thank you so much Louise! I am so happy and couldn’t thank you enough for being such an amazing instructor!
Thanks to Louise’s lessons I managed to pass within only a few months of learning. Her high levels of commitment, competence and encouragement made me feel confident within weeks of beginning to learn. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.
I PASSED! Thanks to Louise’s amazing lessons today I passed my driving test. Louise gave me the confidence and knowledge to successfully become a qualified driver, during Louise’s lessons I always felt calm and she always practiced an abundance of patience and praise. I cannot thank you enough and highly recommend. Alice
I would like to thank Louise for helping me to not only pass my driving test and giving me such an important life skill but for all her encouragement, humour and patience. When I started learning with Louise I was terrified and hated driving. But 3 months later I’ve passed my test and I’m a confident, happy and safe driver. Thank you Louise for everything – I can’t thank you enough.
Thank you so much for teaching me to drive, thoroughly enjoyed it and so pleased to have passed first time! Would definitely recommend you to anyone!
Thankyou so much for teaching me to drive! would recommend you to anyone, really enjoyed learning.
I was really nervous about learning to drive, even though I was really keen, but I needn’t have worried. Louise made learning to drive a fun, relaxed experience and I would not hesitate to recommend her. Thankyou Louise I love my new independence.
Louise as a driving instructor made learning to drive a far less gruesome experience as I expected it to be! Her funny, yet helpful way of teaching made me remember certain techniques to ensure I passed the practical first time (It’s a round-about, not an over-about)!
Louise is a great driving instructor; her teaching method allowed me to learn quickly as she made me feel comfortable and ensured progression every lesson. This was with the use of modern technology and a large amount of driving time in each hour. She is very calm and cares for every individual pupil, being especially supportive when taking theory or the practical tests.
Overall I would recommend Louise to anyone looking to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment, where your driving skills are able to quickly excel.
Finally, at the ripe old age of 45, I proudly own a full driving licence. I cannot believe it (and neither can the rest of my family) and it’s all thanks to Louise, who is the most patient, calm and instructive person I have ever come across. I have no doubt that without her guidance I would never have achieved this. Thank you so much.
Louise – you really are a miracle worker. I doubt you’ve met anyone else more nervous and inept than me and yet somehow you managed to get me through my driving test first time! Gobsmacked is an understatement! Thank you so much for your patience and I feel so delighted and liberated now I’m able to get around under my own steam x.
Louise is a fantastic driving instructor and keeps calm in every situation. I have really enjoyed learning to drive with her and could not have had a better instructor. She has enabled me to pass first time and I will be doing my Pass Pluswith her shortly, I would definitely recommend her.
I made the best decision when I decided to change instructors to Louise. She was worth every penny and did a good, quick job of teaching me how to drive. We also clicked straight away and gained a good friendship with lots of good times together. Thank you so much Louise. Lots of love Emily x
Louise is a friendly and well experienced teacher who tailors lessons to suit you. Everything that is needed to be taught is done in an easy to understand and fun way so it cannot be forgotten. My confidence levels in my driving got increased by Louise’s positive attitude and belief in me.
My learning experience was enjoyable and I really looked forward to seeing Louise every week for my driving lessons. She got me through my test first time with flying colours and I am extremely grateful for all the hard work and commitment she put into getting me through my test with ease. I would strongly recommend Louise to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Learning with Louise has been one of the best experiences of my life (aside from passing my test first time). I had tried with other instructors before but no one could teach me to the same standard or in a style that I could really learn from.
It really was a pleasure, and I will be forever grateful. Thank you.
After a prolonged hiatus from driving after going to Uni I was worried that I would have forgotton all that I learned, but thanks to Louise’s excellent tuition, after a few lessons with her I was able to pass first time!
Louise is a highly skilled, friendly and patient driving instructor, whom I highly recommend to anyone wanting to pass their test and become a safe driver.
Louise is an amazing driving instructor, and I really couldn’t imagine anyone better. Her friendly and encouraging attitude made sure that the lessons were not only enjoyable, but that I was developing as a driver all the time. It is thanks to her that I was able to pass my driving test first time feeling prepared and safe on the road.
I’ll definitely be doing my Pass Plus with Louise and I would strongly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn how to drive.
Louise is by far the best driving instructor around. I previously tried three driving instructors over a long period of time. Louise knows what you need to work on and acts as more of a friend in the car rather than a teacher. She knows how to make you a confident, reliable and safe driver as well as what the examiners are looking for on test.
I’m so glad I was put in touch with her as I feel it would have taken me some time to get driving! I just want to say thank you for all your time, effort and support over the past few months.
Louise is a great driving instructor and I would strongly recommend her. She made me feel really confident in every lesson and was very easy to get along with. This made my lessons fun and I looked forward to them every week, because of this I thank her for giving me a skill I need for life.
Choosing Louise was the best decision I made when it came to choosing a driving instructor. I passed first time with only three minors and have already booked to do Pass Plus!
I would recommend Louise Driving School to anyone, there is no one better!
Louise is a kind, patient and friendly driving instructor, making the experience of learning to drive both enjoyable and safe. She adjusts the progression of the lessons in accordance to the ability and readiness of the pupil, making me feel comfortable and confident when learning new skills.
She was always calm in stressful situations, which transferred to me in my driving since passing my test. It was a real joy to learn with her.
Louise is a very good instructor and calm and kind. She encouraged me to keep going when I wanted to give up, which I am so grateful for. Love from Mercy.
I feel very lucky to have been able to learn to drive with Louise, she is not only a fantastic driving instructor, but also a lovely person! She was extremely encouraging, and always made sure that I was confident with every new driving skill. With her help I passed first time, and am looking forward to doing my Pass Plus with her too!
Louise is a fantastic driving instructor. Learning to drive with Louise was a fun and enjoyable experience and not at any point stressful throughout the course of learning, due to her style of teaching, along with being friendly Louise would be very constructive on anything you felt you were not achieving within her lessons.
I also did my Pass Plus with Louise and it goes without saying really, how it was an easy and enjoyable experience.
When learning to drive, I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor than Lou! She always made me feel at ease, was always so understanding and friendly, and her patience was incredible!
Since passing my test I have never felt uncomfortable or scared of driving on my own – Lou always taught me to stay calm and just be safe.
Everyone should learn with Lou!
I picked up driving again after a three year break for University, and was worried that my fear of the driving test would get in the way of my progress. Louise soon brought my confidence back and by the time my test came round I felt completely prepared.
She is a thorough, professional and most of all encouraging teacher and I would recommend her to anyone!
Louise is a really excellent teacher, she has the ability to clarify every aspect of learning how to drive, in a kind and professional way. I found driving quite challenging before I started learning with Louise, but her encouragement and confidence in me really helped.
I enjoyed my lessons and found it helpful that I had the choice to decide areas in which I wanted to work on each time.
Louise doesn’t only teach you how to pass the test, she teaches you how to be a safe and assured driver.
I was extremely nervous about starting to learn to drive, after my first lesson Louise made me feel at ease behind the wheel. I looked forward to each lesson and Louise’s tips and hints helped me to pick up all the skills and to increase in confidence.
Would highly recommend. Thanks Lou!
My experience with Louise was very enjoyable, she was always encouraging, kind and professional, giving brilliant tips which helped to build my confidence and, in the end, pass first time!
Learning to drive seemed so terrifying before I started to learn and I kept on putting it off; at 18 I had had enough and so, from many excellent recommendations, I joined with Louise. She is a great teacher and within a few lessons it seemed like I had known her a lifetime! Her confidence in me certainly helped me to pass first time and I am grateful. Not only was she excellent with helping me pass in the practical but also took extra time to make sure I was adequately prepared for the theory and often spent time after lessons going through anything I needed to.
From speaking with other friends who had driving lessons elsewhere, they seemed less confident and didn’t seem to enjoy their lessons; I looked forward to them every week and have found myself missing Louise since passing!
At times I found learning to drive challenging, but Louise was always so friendly and positive – it made all the difference. She not only gave me the skills but also the confidence to be a good driver. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor.
Louise is an excellent instructor with second to none knowledge, she tailored the driving lessons to suit what I needed to improve upon, or needed to know allowing me to gain the best experience possible, with the best value for money. Louise is chatty and very helpful, not just telling you what you did wrong but how to improve it, and makes you practice it not just till she’s happy but until you are happy with it as well.
I would recommend Louise to anyone learning to drive for the test and for Pass Plus.
Before I started having driving lessons I was so nervous and scared about being on the roads, Louise put all my worries at bay and made me feel confident. The advice and tips I was given were fantastic – a lot of my other friends weren’t getting this from their instructors. Louise would always give me good feedback and explain things to work on for the next lesson. After I passed I really missed having my lessons! Louise is a very professional and kind instructor.
My first driving experience was with Louise. I found her very friendly, extremely patient and reliable. Her teaching style and technique made learning to drive easy and enjoyable. Thanks to Louise I passed my driving test with great success!
Because of my lack of coordination through having Dyspraxia I thought I would never be able to drive a manual car, but with Louise’s patience and research of the disorder, I have been qualified to drive for nearly two years.
Learning to drive with Louise was a great experience. Her approach was very friendly, polite and calm. I found her to be very patient and her attention to detail has led me to be a very safe and confident driver. Thanks Lou!
Louise was highly recommended to me by a friend and she was a brilliant instructor. She has taught me to drive confidently and safely. The first time I drove on my own was into London at rush hour for work. I expected to be nervous but instead I was calm, in control and I even enjoyed it!! I really wouldn’t be the driver I am today without Louise.
The drama of helping twin sons both learn to drive properly and succeed in their driving tests was managed by Louise with patience, good humour and determination. Thank you.
Louise is such a good driving teacher. I was on the main roads within the first couple of lessons. I would strongly recommend her and thank her for helping me pass my test.
Louise fully prepares you to drive unaided. She makes sure you learn at a pace suitable for you, only challenging you when she knows you have the skills to deal with what you are doing. Learning to drive has been one of the best experiences I have ever had because it provided me with a skill for life. I told all my friends and they are now enjoying learning to drive with Louise too!
I passed first time with Louise. I gained so much confidence with my driving and that has continued since passing. She lets you make mistakes to rectify them (along as it is safe) and is supportive throughout the learning process. Highly recommend Louise to anyone.
Without Louise’s limitless patience and encouragement, I would never have passed today, or mastered the dreaded parallel-park! She is very easy-going and fun to drive with, and I would recommend her 100% to anyone just starting out or restarting their driving (as I did after 20-something years). Amazing – thank you so much Louise!
Louise is an absolutely amazing driving instructor – the best around! She put me completely at ease whilst learning to drive, and all my lessons were so enjoyable! I would (and will) recommend her to everyone!!
Louise is a fantastic driving instructor! After starting lessons really nervous, Louise soon increased my skills and confidence! Driving lessons became became the highlight of my week! Thanks Lou
Louise is fantastic. Both my daughter and son passed first time with only 1 minor between them.
100% the best driving instructor; enjoyed every lesson I had. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Amazing driving instructor! Passed over 2 years ago, would recommend her to everyone. Loved having my name on the car as well.
Superb instructor, I highly recommend Louise to anyone looking to learn how to drive!
I passed at my first attempt after only 9 lessons thanks to Louise. Brilliant driving instructor!
Thank you so much to LDS, the instructors are so kind helpful, supportive , patient and reassuring thank you for helping me gain the confidence to be able to pass my test! Really recommend LDS if you want to learn how to drive not just how to pass your test 🙂
Louise is a fantastic teacher and really built my confidence up!! I struggled to pass with my previous instructor but with her clear instructions I passed my driving test! Thank you Louise
Thank you to Louise and Maria for both teaching me how to drive and being so patient, helpful and kind along the way.
Louise is brilliant! An incredibly patient, calm and friendly driving instructor, her lessons were always enjoyable and informative and her teaching is absolutely comprehensive. I am now a confident and happy driver, thanks to Louise.
Louise made me feel totally relaxed from the day I started to learn to drive. This meant I built up my confidence quickly. Her instruction was always clear and easy to understand. Thanks for making my lessons and learning to drive professional and fun.
Louise is an amazing, caring and patient driving instructor who helped me pass first time with 90% of my lessons taken during this summer holiday from uni! She made me feel calm and safe when I was quite worried about driving and I would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially those who are slightly more anxious about learning to drive.
Genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better driving school, I was lucky enough to be taught by both Maria and Louise during my time learning with them and they were both so lovely and fantastic teachers, and I passed first time! Thanks LDS! Lara x
I couldn’t have done it without the help of Maria Noakes. I had awful anxiety and nerves through the process of driving, having lack of confidence and disbelief in myself with the idea of even slightly succeeding with my driving. Maria however helped me through my nerves and lack of self belief, coaching me through each lesson and helping me believe in myself! Maria is a calm, caring, sensitive and fun teacher and would recommend her to all! LDS is definitely the driving school to go to, ensuring a fun, patient and caring approach to teaching learner drivers! Five Star
Maria is an amazing instructor and helped me pass first time with zero faults. So grateful for all of her help, couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!!! Thank you so much!!
Passed today 1st time, Never did I think this would happen! But all thanks to Vicky for your time and patience I wouldn’t of been able to do it with out you! Best driving instructor really recommend Vicky! Thank you so much!!xxx
Loved my driving lessons and always looked forward to them. Vicky was amazing and made me feel so prepared for my test ☺
Vicky has been an incredible instructor. She was ever so patient in all the lessons I had with her. Her enthusiasm and dedication are reflected in her high standard of teaching. Motivation, encouragement and making the whole learning experience comfortable is what one should be looking in an instructor and Vicky has them all! I highly recommend her to everyone.
Vicky took me on last month.. 10 lessons later, I had PASSED (first time) with only 2 minors. She was everything I wanted in a driving instructor & I definitely recommend you learn with her. Thank you So much. Wish you all the best xxx
The best instructor ever! I NEVER felt the slightest bit stressed or belittled in any way and I’m so happy, highly recommended to anyone ! Thankyou so much Vicky !! Xxxxx
Amazing driving lessons from Maria, I would thoroughly recommend. Best instructor in the business and her teaching is second to none
Maria was wonderful to have as an instructor! Very patient and encouraging – never pushed me too hard but also made sure I went out my comfort zone. She was always very good when I made a mistake so I wouldn’t be put off. I wouldn’t have been able to pass first time without her!
I would like to thank LDS and in particular Maria for taking on a nervous Tom who flourished under her guidance and tuition and passed both his theory and test first time. Thank you so much.
I had a great time with Louise Driving school. I can’t recommend more their professionalism – they are reliable, trustworthy, friendly, positive and they will inform you in advance about every little detail you need to know. Their instructors are all professional – you won’t be let down!
Huge thanks to both Maria and Louise in helping me gain the confidence on the road a passing my driving test :D. I couldn’t have asked for anyone else!
I had the most amazing time learning with Maria and passed very quickly and enjoy driving and really loved my time !x
Maria was amazing! Supported me from start to finish. Always enjoyed my lessons and looked forward to the next one! Thank you so much Maria!
Maria is a fantastic driver instructor. She’s extremely professional and helpful. You feel really relaxed around her and she has the patience to help you through to reach test standard. I honestly couldn’t recommend a better instructor.
Louise is a brilliant driving instructor! She helped me understand everything fully and explained everything clearly so I could progress. Louise built up my confidence and as a result I passed first time! Thank you Louise
Louise is a really great driving instructor. She would push me to do the best I could which resulted with me passing first time this morning with only two faults!
I really recommend her to anyone because she’s brilliant. She taught me to drive confidently and safely whilst being really friendly and helpful throughout.
I couldn’t have asked for anyone better!
Louise is the most patient, friendly and knowledgeable driving instructor that I could have asked for. Lessons with her have not only been a pleasure, but have also made me the confident and comfortable driver that I am today. I would recommend her to anyone!
Louise is the best! Whilst being funny and kind, she was also very informative, patient and helpful. I loved every lesson and passed first time.
Honestly can’t praise her enough.
Thank you so much for everything!!!
Louise is a fantastic driving instructor. Both of my daughters passed first time with her. One in only two months! My second daughter is very anxious but always came back from her lessons with a huge smile. Well done Louise, you are a star!
Maria is a brilliant instructor! Very patient when teaching, and is so funny when doing so! Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor to teach me so quickly and make the whole experience very enjoyable! Thank you Maria
Louise was an amazing instructor! Every lesson was productive, and she was great with helping me work on areas I was unsure about until I was confident. Could not have passed with zero faults without her
Louise was fantastic! She was very attentive to the areas I struggled with and helped me to progress quickly. She also made sure that I was ready and confident before suggesting I take my practical. Would definitely recommend LDS!
Louise is a wonderful instructor. She created a very friendly and comfortable space to learn to drive and helped build my confidence for me to pass 1st time. Couldn’t recommend more!
I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Louise has helped me so much and really increased my confidence when driving. She taught me everything I needed to know and ensured I was fully prepared for my test. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive. I can’t wait to do my pass plus with her! Thank you Louise!
