First Time Pass
Learning to drive with Dave, my daughter passed her driving test first time and we can’t thank Dave enough! He accommodated her awkward times for her lessons always fitting her in if she couldn’t make it due to shift changes at work. He was patient with her, always calm and full of encouragement. She felt comfortable and became more confident as the weeks went on. We would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking to learn to drive.

Dave was able to pick up on what type of learner I was to teach me in the most affordable and comfortable way for my test, the calm and patient manor was also comforting.

I passed first time with only 1 minor thanks my lessons with Dave. I had a previous instructor that didn’t work out as I found I wasn’t progressing as quickly as I would like. I found Dave’s teaching style allowed me to progress at a faster rate while also ensuring I felt comfortable with driving. He allowed me to decide what we did each lesson which ensured I was ready for each part of the driving test. Before the test I was nervous but Dave managed to calm me down by going over areas we felt I needed to recap. The drive before relaxed me and made me feel ready for my test.

Thank you to Dave for helping me pass my driving test! As an anxious, older learner with two kids and a busy schedule, I really struggled to find the courage and time to learn. Dave was able to work with me and help me to challenge myself while also accommodating my schedule. He is patient, supportive and explains things well. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone of any age or ability, who wants to learn to drive. He has honestly helped change my life!

Dave's a brilliant teacher, calm, helpful and calming.  He does very well in helping you learn from mistakes and always an enjoyable lesson.  I'm going to miss the lessons with him but very pleased I've passed my test! Parent Perspective When he started lessons with Dave our son's confidence with driving improved straight away. Dave is great at keeping in touch, keeping parents up to date with progress and very accommodating, even when a test date change is sprung on him! He really does go above and beyond to help his students pass and genuinely cares about them.

First Time Pass
When i was working with Dave he stayed very calm throughout the whole time of him teaching me, this made me not feel as nervous to drive. Also while working with Dave he gave me very helpful pointers and tips to allow me to drive to the best of my ability, with giving me these pointers it also let me understand things quicker than usual. Overall it was really nice and helpful working with Dave and would definitely recommend. Parents Perspective An amazing service from start to finish and what a great gentleman Dave is. Right from the start of asking about lessons Dave explained what happens and what we would need to do going forward. Always kept us updated on how our son was getting on & fitted him in at short notice for Mock Tests after my son had got a last minute driving test. My son then went onto pass 1st time with only 2 minors, which goes to show what a good instructor Dave is. Thank you!

His patients and attention to detail when perfecting my driving skills allowed me to feel confident and prepared heading into my test. His feedback which was given through the lessons and also at the end of lessons enabled me to have confidence in my abilities and encouraged my progress every lesson.

Dave is an utterly fantastic instructor who is both patient and informative, his approach to mentoring is effective and efficient.

Dave wasn’t my first instructor but switching to Dave was probably the best decision I could have made. He was nothing but kind, funny and and great to be with and really made driving fun for me whilst also teaching me a lot and pushing me. I have just passed my test and I owe it all to Dave, don’t know where I would be without him.

From a Parent Perspective
From start to finish Dave as been a courteous, helpful, friendly driving instructor who has been a huge part of our Jacks driving experience. Not only did Dave advance Jack from his previous instructor to passing his test but always treated him with respect and was a huge positive in Jacks lessons. When I managed to get last minute driving test he was there for him and even found the time to give Jack a few extra lessons to get him ready for the test. Jack will miss their banter as they had a laugh and that’s imperative to be able to have a good rapport with your instructor and Jack definitely got this with Dave. If you are looking at booking your driving lessons then Dave is your man! 100% in all aspects of teaching you to drive with his calm, trustworthy persona keen to teach and always there for you! Jack passed his test and my last words will be THANKYOU DAVE!!!

First Time Pass
Dave is firstly a brilliant instructor and is very easy to understand and is I learnt from him fast. He's very supportive in your lessons and just in general. I knew literally nothing when I started with Dave but as weeks went by I started to pick things up fast. I also passed my test first time with only 1 minor I have to say that's because of Dave. His car is only very good to drive and is in perfect condition. I would recommend Dave to any new driver who needs a proper good instructor. Dave is also very easy to get on with which is also a good thing when you want to start learning and I found Dave very easy to sit with whilst I was learning. He also gave me tips on my theory which is. Dave has been brilliant to me for months so I have to give him a 5 star which is fully deserve.

David Langridge helped me develop my driving skills and helped me pass my driving test. The continuous focus on weaker areas and suggestions on how to improve them allowed me to continuously develop my skills in a safe environment. The ability to practice mock tests was especially helpful as it permitted me to familiarise myself with exam conditions and expectations.

First Time Pass
Dave is patient, understanding and makes you feel like you can overcome the many challenges that you’re faced with when being a learner. As a very unconfident driver he had his work cut out with me but Dave gave me the tools I needed to pass first time! The LDC workbook and the DVD from LDC are excellent and really helped me record my progress and brush up on theory and the Highway Code. I would recommend Dave to anyone, no matter how much experience or confidence you have behind the wheel.  Thanks again for being a brilliant instructor and for being so patient with me. I really don’t think I could have done it without your help.

Having Dave as a driving instructor was a great experience for learning how to drive. He gave me allot of effective tips on how to improve my driving in the different areas that needed improving and he was very patient throughout the whole process. Dave was very calm when in the car with me, which made me feel safe when I wasn't very confident first driving in a new car. Coming up to the test I was always reassured to not get overconfident by Dave, which really helped me get ready for my test. Had no problems at all and everything in the lessons that I was taught helped me allot coming up to my test.
