I cannot recommend Dale enough. His way of student-led instruction is absolutely brilliant, and it makes you feel like you are in control of your learning. He is calm and patient and so encouraging. I looked forward to every lesson, and by the time I took my exam, I was confident and calm. Driving in the UK was intimidating for me because, as an American, I am used to driving on the other side of the car and road! I made so many mistakes during my lessons, but he was patient with me and spoke in a language I could understand. Today I passed my exam with only 2 minors.
Passed first time!!!!

Huge congratulations to Matty Bardsley who passed his driving test today. It was a perfect drive too with ZERO Faults. You worked really hard throughout your lessons, using the LD system to plan your lessons and striving to be the best driver you can be. It showed today by achieving a faultless pass!! All the best Matty, enjoy the celebrations tonight and hope you have many years of safe driving 🚗🚗
I can't praise my instructor enough, he was very patient, very helpful and helped me understand where I was going wrong and what I needed to do to improve. He has a very relaxed persona which really puts you at ease, I will be recommending him to other learners. The workbooks are a great addition to the lessons, they have some great tips in them and really helped me understand driving. Also they help you go over previous lessons and improve as you are asked to write down what you did and your thoughts on that lesson. I think LDC are a great company as you are very much in control of your lessons and what you want to learn.
Passed 1st time!!!
I'm grateful to Mr Dale Rutland for I've passed my test 1st time. He's been recommended to me from a friend who also passed the test with him. Definitely exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him to everyone I know who is thinking of taking lessons. He's absolutely patient, calm, friendly, knowledgable, and he has got great observation and would point out whatever you lack in your driving or knowledge, and guide you and make sure you get it and do it right. Even though English is not my first language the fact that I've done well and passed first time speaks a lot about his skills as a driving instructor. I am very pleased and would definitely recommend his services. The workbook and videos and the whole learning method was easy to understand and follow.
I saw Dale regularly over a 3 month period and he was a fantastic teacher. He is very calm and he explains things in the most simple way possible. Not only this but I found the LDC workbook extremely helpful in the respect that it helped me have an understanding of a topic prior to the lesson. I believe that this really increased my knowledge and skill at a very fast rate. Also the online theory test area is something that I found very effective. As a result of all this I managed to pass both my theory and practical tests first time!! I couldn't recommend Dale and LDC more! I would recommend them to anyone.
Congratulations to Liam King who passed his driving test 1st time with only 3 minor faults, a great drive Liam, well done!! Liam sent me the following testimonial: I passed first time with Dale! I am really glad to get Dale as a driving instructor, I have to admit I was quite nervous in the beginning but Dale was really easy to get along with and always kept his cool. Even when I made some pretty big mistakes he stayed calm and rather than me feeling like a terrible driver he just told me where I went wrong, how to deal with the situation properly and reassured me of the progress made in each lesson. Punctuality wise I could set my watch by Dale and I really like his car to learn in. But amazingly after little over 4 months I passed my practical driving test with just 3 minors, which for me being a nervous driver to start, I know is pretty good. Thanks Dale couldn't recommend you enough.
