3rd time lucky passing my test. My nerves & overthinking got the better of me, but with Emlyns exceptional patience, time, knowledge, persistence, hard work and client based learning I got there in the end. He always went above and beyond in every lesson to make sure I understood everything. Sometimes it took me a while but Emlyn was ever so patient and never made me feel silly or pressured. My first ever lesson he made me feel at ease. He believed in me and that gave me more and more confidence as time went on. As happy as I am that I’ve passed I’m going to miss having lessons, I learnt so much from Emlyn. He’s the best instructor I’ve had and a genuinely nice person.

Without learning with Emlyn I wouldn’t have had the self belief that I could. He makes you feel comfortable as if you’ve known him for years, such a bubbly man and always has a way to explain things so that you understand. Can’t thank you enough Emlyn for believing in me and helping me achieve a pass !! Couldn’t recommend Emlyn more !!!

I passed first time with Emlyn
Emlyn made me feel really comfortable and more confident about my driving from the first lesson. He explained everything thoroughly and did not hesitate to go through anything I didn’t understand. He used many pictures, models and real life scenarios to teach me and had great reference point advice for manoeuvres. Emlyn always encouraged me to keep my nerves at bay and always made sure we did a thorough reflection after each lesson to make sure we knew exactly what we had left to cover. He always included the “show me” and “tell me” questions in our lessons so that they didn’t catch me out on the big day! Due to this, I passed first time! Highly recommended!

I'd lost confidence in driving due to a bad instructor. Emlyn helped me build my confidence back up, improve my driving skills all whilst putting a smile on my face and making me laugh. He's an all round people's person. You will definitely be making the right choice in learning to pass with Emlyn. He had a lot of patience and great understanding of myself. I will recommend him over anyone and to my friends who want to learn in the future!

I passed with Emlyn
Emlyn was a great driving instructor because every lesson was informative,enjoyable and relaxed. During lessons Emlyn was very calm and if I made a mistake he would ask how we would make it safe and go through what to do , he would always ask me what I wanted to look at during lessons so he knew I was learning from each lesson. Emlyn went into lots of detail when explaining what i had to do and made sure I knew fully what I had to do in each situation. I would recommend him to anyone who asked me for an instructor. Thank you 😁

I passed first time with Emlyn
Thanks to Emlyn I passed my test first time today. I suffer from anxiety and from my first lesson he made me feel comfortable and at ease. He’s patient and knowledgeable and has taught me everything I need to know to be a safe driver. The feedback at the end of each lesson and the LDC workbook along with the website access is really helpful and was useful in passing my theory and developing my driving skills. I would highly recommend Emlyn, his fun lessons have made learning to drive an enjoyable experience.

Emlyn is a patient and understanding instructor who always tried his utmost to make me feel comfortable when I was controlling the car. He is easy to get along with and very talkative, which really helped to build my confidence behind the wheel. He always made sure to reinforce any positive aspects of my driving, and he was never condescending when giving advice. He makes sure to give good feedback and discuss the drive after every lesson. I can't recommend him enough.

Over the past year I have had lessons with Emlyn and I wouldn’t have wanted them with anyone else, he made me at ease and made them enjoyable. He would always tell me when I did something wrong and told me how to do it properly, if I didn’t understand anything he would show me how to do it which I did and on Tuesday 12th October I passed my driving test all thanks to Emlyn. Thank you so much x

I passed first time with Emlyn
Choosing LDC from the offset I knew that the additional support their online program offered would benefit me, giving me a prior understanding of what I would be doing in the car that week, supporting me in both my theory test and practical test. Starting in December 2020 I was nervous behind the wheel, panicked often and anxious about the prospect of theory and practical tests, no matter how far away they seemed.

Right from our first lesson Emlyn, with humour and good spirit, allowed me to overcome these nerves, my panic and anxiety behind the wheel ultimately supporting me and enabling me to pass both my theory and practical test first time. Alongside Emlyn’s patience with me allowing me to be comfortable driving was the frequent reflections at the end of lesson, where we would both evaluate what we felt went well and more importantly what needed improving, roundabouts for me at the start was something I needed to work on and the next lesson that’s what we looked at intensively, allowing me to be confident with any obstacles I encountered.

Emlyn is the best instructor ! He made driving fun and a laugh whilst also giving me everything I needed to not only pass but to drive confidently on my own. He is very supportive and encouraging and helped me to build my confidence with driving, as when I first started I was nervous but eased right into driving because of his amazing teaching style. Me and Emlyn always had a great time on our lessons and I cannot thank him or recommend him enough and I am genuinely going to miss our lessons :(

I passed First Time
After having previous lessons with another instructor a number of years ago I started learning with Emlyn after a friends recommendation. Being very self critical Emlyn was able to remain calm and more importantly keep calm. Throughout the lessons he adapted how he taught certain manoeuvres to suit how i approached them. We were hit by delays with the COVID pandemic but i was happy with the structured manner in how we re-approach driving with the lengthy break between lessons. All in all very happy and the results speak for themselves, first time Pass with Emlyn and with only 2 driver faults on the test.

I failed my first two driving tests due to lack of observation of speed signs and at junctions. After continuing lessons with Emlyn he helped me to fully address this and thankfully I have now passed. Third time lucky! Emlyn provided an excellent service and covered everything needed to be successful. Thank you!

First time pass
Before starting lessons with Emlyn the thought of driving a car made me so nervous. Every time I got behind the wheel I always went into panic mode. Emlyn was so understanding and patient and after a couple of lessons my confidence began to grow. He made learning driving drive such an enjoyable, fun experience as well as being reliable and easy to contact (even during lockdown) and after 5 months of lessons I passed my driving test first time. I cannot thank Emlyn enough for for everything he has taught me.

Shannan RanaShannan Rana
Passing with Emlyn
Driving lessons with Emlyn was the best thing i did due to the fact he is so calm, always making sure to let me know about significant road signs and markings to make me more alert and a better driver overall which led to me having just 20 hours and passing my test. The training felt so easy from the way it was explained and never once felt like i was being told off for making errors which was a relief. Best choice was choosing Emlyn as i have now passed from his training.

Emlyn is the most amazing driving instructor you could ask for. I have managed to pass my driving test first time and I’m Absolutely over the moon. Not only is he a brilliant instructor, he also helped me believe in myself as I was a nervous driver. Emlyn was always reassuring and always calm, full of jokes to settle the nerves and always made time to help me, listen to me and answer any questions at any time, he honestly goes above and beyond for his students. I will honestly miss our driving lessons and the smiles that they bought. If your looking for lessons and want a confident instructor who is fun, calm, and passionate in helping you to succeed then Emlyn is the instructor for you.

I thoroughly enjoyed my driving lessons with Emlyn. He was a bubbly Instructor that I could talk to, whilst he taught me how to drive. He made me feel at ease behind the wheel and helped to quickly build up my confidence in driving on the roads and in mastering manoeuvres. Emlyn taught me how to follow the rules of the road as well as to be a safe driver on the roads and because of that I passed my test first time! I would definitely recommend learning to drive with Emlyn because he’ll help you get rid of those ‘L’ plates in no time!!

I’ve passed with Emlyn
I had almost a year of lessons with a previous instructor and felt like I was getting nowhere. I then broke my arm and my confidence in driving was destroyed. I tried Emlyn and after my first lesson he pushed me to take my theory and my confidence improved massively. I would 100% recommend Emlyn to anyone, especially those who struggle with nerves or confidence.

Emlyn is easily the best driving instructor i’ve ever had. He was understanding, calming, and a joy to learn with. He allowed me to learn at my own pace, would often give me challenges to overcome, and when things went wrong he gave me the chance to resolve the situation - only stepping in when it was 100% necessary. Emlyn’s lessons made me enjoy driving, and I can’t thank him enough for his help & guidance. If you need a reliable, talented, and trustworthy driving instructor then look no further.

Learning to drive with Emlyn has been a pleasure!! He is very patient and understanding, despite me doubting myself all the time, Emlyn gave me the confidence to book my theory and my test. He’s calm and very knowledgeable, which there’s no pressure when driving and if there is something you need to improve on, he explains in a calming way. I enjoyed every driving lesson with Emlyn, and now I’ve passed I will definitely miss my lessons!! Not only that, you also get a book, dvd and online resources to help you along, which I found incredibly useful. I would 100% recommend Emlyn if you are looking for driving lessons!!

I passed with Emlyn Hudson couldn't ask for more in an instructor I found his methods simple but direct. This allowed me to progress quickly and safely leading to a confident pass all this accompanied by the LDC book and driving skills DVD. I would highly recommend the LDC system to everyone from first time drivers to those with experience. Overall a professional and friendly service from start to finish.

Emlyn is a very patient, enthusiastic and professional driving instructor. He really helped me to gain confidence in my driving to the point where I was able to pass first time. He encouraged me to come out of my comfort zone by trusting my driving skills to complete more difficult driving. I would highly recommend Emlyn as now I feel fully confident to drive on my own.

Jays journey
Learning to drive with Emlyn has been a really good journey. From having a previous instructor to changing to Emlyn every lesson I felt more confident and comfortable driving with him teaching me. If I did something wrong there wasn’t any moaning just encouragement to improve on what I messed up on and finally getting me through my test which I can’t thank him enough!!

My daughter is Autistic and been trying to pass her Driving exams for four years now. She joined Emlyn at LDC Driving School two months ago and she has now passed and driving independently. I want to say a big massive thank you to Emlyn for helping her to achieve this huge milestone her life will change dramatically because of this success. Your patience and calm attitude has made this possible. Thank you again and that does not feel enough. You are a credit to your profession and all thelearner drivers. I would 100% recommend you Emlyn.

Chloe Stirling
My daughters journey
My daughter suffers from an anxiety disorder and was terrified of driving. We had previously tried several driving instructors both male and female but neither were able to sufficiently build her confidence to sit in the car, let alone drive. She was drawn to tears with her previous instructors as she struggled to cope with her anxiety. Then we found Emlyn. After three years of not sitting in the driver’s seat my daughter passed her test with Emlyn after just 3 Β½ months. He was so patient, kind and supportive and the only time she needed tissues was after her driving test. As a parent I cannot thank Emlyn enough for all he has done. My daughter is now able to move forward in her career as she can drive herself to work. So if you are looking for a special someone to guide yourself or your teenager through their theory and practical test I have not hesitation in recommending Emlyn; you will not be disappointed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Emlyn you have been truly amazing.

Learning to drive with Emlyn has been an absolute pleasure. After changing my driving instructor to Emlyn at such a crucial time in my lessons was quite daunting but he started from where I had left off and took the task on like it was nothing. He is such a calming influence and made my driving experience enjoyable. Cannot thank him enough for getting me through my test! 100% recommend Emlyn

Learning to drive with Emlyn has been a pleasure from start to finish. 😊 He is incredibly patient and understanding, I must have been a nightmare to teach as I panic and fret over everything!! But Emlyn has the skills to put you at ease and to give you the confidence to continue. 😊 I have had so much fun, we have laughed (uncontrollably sometimes) which has made passing my test bittersweet because now they're over, I'll miss my lessons!! Emlyn has a unique style of teaching which brings in famous names, such as Eddie the Eagle and Tina Turner, as daft as it sounds memorable cues are one of the things that helped me to keep my concentration while on test! I have no reservations about recommending Emlyn to everybody if they're wanting to learn to drive. 😊
