Testimonials from some of my past pupils

He believed in me when I didn’t
Chris is an excellent driving instructor, who I would definitely recommend. He believed in me when I didn’t and got me through my nerves. Every single driving lesson, he listened to what I would like to achieve that day and made sure I knew where I went wrong and where I should improve. As much as I am extremely happy of passing my test, I will be missing the lessons, as they were great fun. Chris has been professional in each of my lessons, whilst also making driving fun and something I will look forward to. 100% will recommend to all my family and friends.

Passed 1st time
Very good driving instructor would highly recommend Chris Barker if you are looking to start driving. Very well instructed lessons with the LDC structure which is also great. Helped me to pass first time and a great car to learn in also.

Passed 1st time in just 6 days
After completing a nearly week long intensive driving course with Chris I can honestly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about learning to drive. Initially Chris carried out a home visit which put me at ease and gave me a clear overview of what we might be doing whilst learning to drive. Throughout the intensive course Chris remained a friendly and calm instructor, giving me the chance to plan and direct my own learning (utilising the LDC methods). I was provided with a workbook that helped loads! It included space for reflection, lesson plans and tips for the test and learning to drive with handy diagrams. As the lessons progressed Chris was very positive and reminded me of the progress we had made! Very nice :) I always felt confident that he was keeping me safe and efficiently teaching me all the key skills to driving, leading me to pass first time. The car was always immaculate day in, day out. Towards the end of my intensive course, Chris introduced a new post it note student area, where students could write messages to other students like handy tips and things to remember. Love this idea and can say that one or two other students’ ideas and thoughts helped me out! Thanks very much Chris! Would recommend to anyone.

100% recommend to have Chris as a driving instructor.
100% recommend to have Chris as a driving instructor. This is someone who is kind, genuine and overall a really nice guy who teaches you everything in a professional but extremely understandable manner. I have had a previous instructor before him and unfortunately he was not doing his job properly. A friend recommended Chris and honestly the difference between him and my previous instructor is night and day. If anyone is looking for a great instructor at a reasonable price I’d recommend Chris in a heartbeat. He has believed in my ability to drive and has constantly given me faith throughout to which I extremely appreciate.

A Brilliant driving instructor
I had 70 hours driving with other instructors and failed my test so many times I had no confidence and I didn't enjoy my driving but after 8 and half hours driving with Chris I was not only confident but I was enjoying it as well. Chris is a really nice guy and a brilliant driving instructor, the lessons were all based on the areas of driving I felt I need to improve on and I passed my test first time with him! I will 100% be recommending him to everybody I know!

Where do I start! What an amazing instructor, is a good place! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better! Chris is a wonderful instructor who really wants the best for you!

I loved my driving lessons with Chris......1st Time pass!
I loved my driving lessons with Chris! He has a very cheerful, calm and understanding nature which made me feel at ease whilst learning how to drive. I liked how he tells you to do what you think is best whilst on the road because this helped to me grow so much quicker to be an independent driver. I liked using the LDC Workbook to help reflect on my lessons and where I need improvement for my next lesson. I would definitely recommend Chris! I’m so glad I took all my lessons with you, I couldn’t of wished for a better instructor! I’m going to miss all of our laughs early in the morning 🀣 See you on the roads! πŸš—

1st time pass after only 23hrs of lessons
Brilliant Instructor! Very calm and collective man to help you through stages of the learning process. He always made me feel calm and mostly confident with my ability to drive. Passing 1st time after on 23hrs of lessons says a lot about my instructor. I couldn't ask for a better instructor to guide me through the stages. The LDC system and workbook helped me look back to see what I needed to improve. I would recommend Chris to anyone and everyone. Perfect driving instructor!

Sophie FrenchSophie French
Passed 1st time after semi intensive course
My instructor is absolutely fantastic! His teaching skills are really good. Nothing is ever too much for him. He always made me feel at ease with anything I was struggling with. He would be kind and patient if I messed anything up! I'm very glad I found Chris! He is a credit to LDC! The LDC Workbook is absolutely brilliant. If I struggled with anything I was able to use my book and the LDC Videos are really helpful too.

Chris is very safe, calm and reassuring, he made me feel really comfortable and enjoy driving. Chris always made me understand everything I needed to know about driving and if I was unsure he would take the time out to make sure I fully understood. The LDC System helped me a lot to pass my Theory and Practical Driving test by explaining everything in great detail. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
