Top of all instructors
I was a 42 year old, car hating, easily distracted, non-spacially aware, terrified, overly sensitive non-driver, who by the power of Patrick has just passed her driving test. He is the only instructor who made any sense to me with his patient and informative method of teaching and he stuck with me through my wide range of emotional outbursts which ranged from crying, shouting and even growling at one point. He was professional, kind and very easy to talk to and amazing value for money. I always felt completely safe with Patrick and had 100% of his attention throughout every lesson. I will be forever grateful for the time and effort he put into teaching me to drive. Thanks boss xx

Passed first time on a intensive course.
Couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor started learning how to drive on Monday ... passed my test on Friday Wasn't easy to try to cram it in over the week there was tears and tantrums and that was just off Patrick ๐Ÿ˜€ I wanted to give up half way but Patrick helped me and coached me and when I didn't think I could do it, he helped me realise anything can be achieved. Thank you so very much.

I cant thank Patrick enough, I'm an 'older' learner who in the past has given up with other instructors and never been near taking a test.....BUT Patrick never gave up on me and I passed 1st time today, his genuine friendly but professional personality makes you at ease from the very first lesson. We have had some laughs and banter along the way but with every lesson I felt more confident and any negativity I showed was always dealt by Patrick in a brilliant manner. I cant recommend Patrick enough especially for pupils with confidence and nerve issues.

Had a fantastic time.
Went with Patrick to learn how to go from automatic driving to manual, he did a fantastic job teaching and explaining everything, really made the lessons a fun and worthwhile experience. Great sense of humour and a bloody nice bloke, helped set me at ease for driving and taking in the learning effectively. Very happy with the results. Highly recommend his services.

Patrick is an great driving instructor, laid back, supportive and very patient. I wouldn't have been able to pass first time without him, especially with only two minors. Would definitely recommend to anyone learning.

I have recently passed my test. However, without Patrick and his patients with my slow learning abilities I wouldn't have passed. I'd recommend him to everyone and anyone.

First time pass
Patrick Lewis is very easy to get on with, funny and professional. I had no idea how to drive before my first lesson with him. After the first 5 hours with Patrick he told me that it would take a total of 30 and I would pass, he was correct I passed on my first attempt.

Patrick is a excellent instructor, I started using him in August and I have passed on my first attempt in the first week of February. I can not fault his way of teaching in a million years, I am a very nervous person and he helped me to be more confident. I will be recommending him to anyone, as the best driving instructor.

First time PASS
I would strongly recommend Patrick Lewis to anyone. I called him up and asked if it was possible for him to get me from no driving experience to a passing standard in a few weeks. After 35 hours over 2 weeks, I passed at Darlington test centre. Thank you so much, I needed to pass for my job.

Patrick is my big brother in law, so I must say that he is the best. It is true becouse he got me through it and I passed on my first attempt. So if you want a great instructor that gets the job done? Then my big brother in law is the instructor for you.

Patrick is out standing, with his help I passed with only one driving fault. At first he came to my home and talked me through the options of the courses and the payment methods. He is very understanding and helpful, I could relax and talk with Patrick in my lessons. I would really recommend him to anyone who would need an instructor.

I have had the pleasure of having my lessons with Patrick, I passed the driving test on my first attempt with only 2 minors. Patrick is brilliant, his no time wasting approach ensured that I had plenty of practice with no time wasted chatting. He was always on time, professional and constantly observing me to ensure all my faults were corrected.

I had a fantastic time learning to drive with Patrick Lewis, he used the LDC system. The free LDC book that Patrick give me on the first day was a great help to, It give me that extra help when I was in between lessons. With Patrick been an ex-serviceman his lessons were firm but still fun. I did only 33 hours with Patrick from start to finish I was convinced that it would take me much longer, as some of my friends have done much longer. Patrick and LDC are brilliant and would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.
