Nicki has been an excellent driving instructor throughout the whole time I learnt to drive. Once you first get in the car, she makes you feel at ease behind the wheel and takes time to listen to any concerns that you may have. One major plus is that Nicki takes time to go over drives thoroughly, but also suggests areas for improvement and this is what really helped me. My confidence wouldn't be where it is today if it wasn't for Nicki teaching me how to be a safe driver. Words can't describe how happy I am now that I have passed my test.

Huge thank you to Nicki who took me on in December where I was a nervous wreck when it came to driving!! Over the weeks and months, Nicki built up my confidence and got me to the stage where I really enjoyed driving again. I've had such a laugh learning with her.

I would just like to express how grateful I am to have taken lessons with yourself. Your approach immediately put me at ease, and I felt that with every lesson, I managed to improve the standard of my driving.

I am still shaking and can't really believe it. Thank you so much for taking me on and encouraging me to gain this massive achievement. I will most definitely recommend you to anyone I hear of who wishes to learn to drive. Your standards are excellent. Best wishes. Julie.

Nicki has been an excellent driving instructor. When I started with Nicki, I had very little driving experience and she brought me right up to test level. Nicki was always willing to try and accommodate my timetable and fit me in at times that suited me. Nicki was always able to relax and take away any nerves I might have had during lessons. She explained the rules of the road and the car very clearly and was very patient if there was something that I did not quite understand. Nicki taught me everything that I needed to know for the driving test, and also the best and safest ways to drive on the road. Nicki is an excellent instructor and it is definitely worth coming to her if you are looking for driving lessons.

She manages to strike the right balance between supportive friend and professional instructor and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. Thanks Nicki!!!! :) xxxxxx

I passed with Nicki first time. Previously I had another instructor but Nicki was recommended to me by one of my friends, so I decided to change and am so glad I did as I passed my test in 4 months. Nicki excels in her job and helps in every way she can to get you thru your test. She explains the course fully, something that my previous instructor didnt do, and I found this very helpful. Would recommend 100% xx

I started learning to drive with nicki from ldc about a year ago and passed my test in November 2011.

I really enjoyed my lessons with Nicki and found her a very patient and excellent teacher. We had some laughs along the way as Nicki made every lesson fun and most enjoyable. I am currently doing pass plus with Nicki as I wanted to become a more confident and competent driver. I would recommend Nicki and the LDC system to anyone who is wanting to take lessons. The LDC system is very thorough and structured. A huge thank you to Nicki for teaching me to drive; it has been one of the most enjoyable things in life I have done.
