Testimonials from some of my past pupils

Liam CahillLiam Cahill
Passed first time
I found the LDC approach to learning to drive to be really useful. By reading the LDC book and watching the LDC videos in between lessons, I was able to extend my learning beyond my time in the car. Understanding the theory of driving alongside Graham helping me with the practical aspects ultimately helped me to pass first time. It has also helped me to better understand how to drive a different car now I have my license. Thanks Graham

After initially learning to drive in the borders and failing my first test, I moved to Edinburgh and began my driving lessons with Graham. He is an amazing teacher and I can not recommend enough. Graham is very patient and explains things very clearly. I was nervous for my test but Graham was super encouraging and I passed! Thank you Graham! Evie.

Oliver Morgan
After putting off learning to drive for 23 years due to a disability, my wife getting pregnant had made me look into driving again. Graham with his patience and confidence in my ability to overcome any issues that were stopping me from getting my drivers license. 30 hours in a fun and relaxing environment and I can happily say I have passed. Thanks to Graham and LDC.

Flora Robinson
I can wholeheartedly recommend Graham as a driving instructor! He is exceptionally patient and a natural teacher. He is always 100% punctual and makes the most of every minute in a lesson. I found he thought carefully about what was holding me back while driving and came up with strategies to help me get over these things and it worked amazingly! He takes COVID precautions very seriously as well. Thank you Graham!

Graham is such an amazing instructor. From the get go he made us feel at ease in the car and allowed me to take our lessons at my own pace. He's encouraging, patient and really is a fantastic teacher. Every lesson is very well structured through LDC but Graham allows you to practice and structure your own lessons. I passed 1st time and this is testimony to Graham's teaching style and ability. Would recommend to everyone. Such a lovely guy also. Thanks Graham!

Although I've been driving for *ahem* 20 years, it's been with an Automatic gearbox. Graham helped me transition to a manual gearbox which was a necessity for my work. I cannot recommend Graham highly enough. If it were up to me I'd still be out playing around on an old railway road too feared to take on the real road. I went from not being able to breathe when driving the manual to being able to hold a full blown conversation in absolutely no time at all. Graham has a very calming way about him and is extremely patient. Graham had the faith that I would pass my test... and I did FIRST time!

Graham Cullen
Graham is an exceptionally fine driving instructor, who possesses a lovely nature, which puts pupils at ease and brings the best out of them. After an unfortunate early experience of learning to drive with another driving school, our daughter was very reluctant to try again.  Despite this barrier, Graham quickly developed a rapport with her, providing encouragement and skilled instruction, which saw both her driving ability and confidence quickly increase.  Her reluctance turned to enthusiasm under Graham's tutelage and after a handful of lessons, we were delighted when she passed her test on the first attempt.  Well done to you Graham and thank you again.

I was a nervous driver returning to lessons after a ten year gap. With Graham's calmness, kindness and patience I managed to pass my test first time. He is very understanding and works hard to pitch the lessons to whatever level you are at and to focus on any areas you might feel particularly nervous about. He's a very friendly and easy to get along with person who will make you feel at ease behind the wheel. His flexible schedule allows you to arrange lessons that fit around your life. I would 100% recommend Graham.

We would like to thank you for helping Ewan with his driving lessons. You came recommended by our daughter Emily. Your nice calm approach and personality was just perfect for Ewan. I can't tell you how happy he was when he passed his test first time out at Currie Test Centre. Very happy parents!! Happy to report Ewan is confidently driving around and it has given him new independence. Congratulations to you Graham as I hear Ewan is your first pass, you will be highly recommended.

I needed to transfer my licence to a UK one, Graham was a sensational help. He gave me all the skills and tips to pass my practical driving test first time. I am so grateful, thanks Graham.

Ben Jones
As a first time learner who has put off lessons for far too long I was a little apprehensive about getting in the car and what would be expected of me.

Graham is a fantastic instructor who quickly made me feel at ease in the car and on the road. His lesson plans have been well thought out yet also flexible when I have needed them to be.

This flexibility has also carried over into actually booking the lessons too, Graham has been very organised and accomodating of my busy schedule.

I would thoroughly recommend Graham as a driving instructor for anyone thinking about learning to drive.
