Car Driving Lessons

Zoe Hunter
I moved from another driving instructor to Lawrence having previously failed my driving test. He was highly recommended by one of my friends and due to his experience and knowledge I passed first time with him! He pushed me to the best of my ability and taught me the skills to keep me safe on the road. He gave clear instructions over the period of the lessons and helped me to learn to relax and feel comfortable when driving. Previously, I lacked confidence when driving but throughout my lessons with Lawrence my confidence improved greatly due to his patience and encouragement. His easy going personality meant that I was put to ease going into my exam and I couldn't say a bad word about him. Thanks Lawrence! :)
Heather Crutchley
I passed my driving test first time and all thanks to Lawrence. He had me learning essential skills from the outset and built my confidence throughout my lessons. I would recommend Lawrence to anyone because he is a brilliant instructor who is able to joke about silly mistakes but draws attention to why driving safely is so important and has taught me the skills I need to drive carefully. Thanks Lawrence and I shall see you on the road!

Grace Henderson

I passed my driving test first attempt on the 10th September, thanks to my instructor Lawrence. He fully prepared me for my test by providing me with great skills that I will never forget. I had a very relaxed and enjoyable experience learning to drive and would highly recommend LCD Driving Academy to everyone. Thank you Lawrence.

 Dayle Mclaughlin, Limavady.

Thanks to laurence i passed my test first time but due to a mistake by my tester I was wrongfully failed.
Laurence made the examiner aware that he had delivered an instruction to me, which was incorrect, and therefore his decision to fail me was unjustified.
 
Without Laurence's intervention, I would have had to accept the examiners decision. Laurence knows the rules and what is or is not acceptable, and thankfully he was able to challenge the incorrect instruction given to me by a DVA examiner.
 
How many others has this examiner, issued the wrong instruction to, where the candidate has failed because of an incorrect instruction.
 
Laurence got me a retest two days later and I passed my test again.
 
Laurence has you out driving from day one and explains every aspect of driving and let's you know your mistakes and how you should correct them. Couldn't of passed without laurence's teaching. Thanks a lot.

Alison Townley

Lawrence has a great personality and is a brilliant driving instructor. After my first lesson I was on the top of the world as I was so glad that I got on so well with Lawrence. Lawrence helped me correct my mistakes really quickly and boosted my confidence hugely, and thanks to Lawrence I passed my test first time! I would recommend Lawrence to everyone, his good humour and knowledge of driving made my learning experience something I will never forget!

Alison Troughton

I passed my test first time with the help of Lawrence! On my first lesson he had me driving and learning essential skills straight away. Lawrence has a great personality. He is calm and collected and always made a joke out of my mistakes, but helped me correct them and gain the confidence I needed. I'd definitely recommend learning to drive with Lawrence!!

Korey Mc Keegan

I passed my driving test on 7th January, thanks to instruction from Lawrence! It was always a pleasure to learn to drive with Lawrence as he was funny and made learning to drive enjoyable. He didn't make me feel nervous and filled me full of confidence. I wouldn't of wanted to learn to drive with anyone else! My sister also learnt to drive and passed her driving test with the help of Lawrence. I cannot recommend Lawrence highly enough, if you want to learn to drive.. Choose Lawrence!

Steven Miller, Limavady

I began my driving lessons shortly after my birthday in June, and passed my practical test first time. Lawrence is a very professional teacher with a great personality, making you feel much at ease. I really enjoyed my experience learning to drive, and my confidence has been built up, making driving a very enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend LCD Driving Academy to everyone.

Jill Mackenzie, Limavady

I began my driving lessons with Lawrence (LCD Driving Academy) the day after my 17th birthday in October 2011 and passed my driving test on my first attempt in March 2012. Lawrence is very professional in his manner of teaching and has a great personality which makes him easy to get along with. He praises good, safe driving and observation, but even when you get it wrong – he can persuade you to get it right the next time. I enjoyed the experience very much and would highly recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone.

Genevieve Toner, Limavady

Lawrence is an AMAZING driving instructor and I would defiantly recommend him to anybody. My driving experience with him was very pleasant and memorable. I gained so much driving knowledge from him just after my first lesson. Lawrence really built up my confidence and he created a very enjoyable driving experience for me! I hope this will help any future learner drivers to make the right choice and choose LCD Driving Academy.

Louise Martin, Limavady

I started as a pupil with Lawrence after failing my test twice before. I was quite nervous about my driving and kept making the same silly mistakes all the time.

Lawrence was very easy to get along with.  He gave clear and concise instructions over the period of the lessons and helped me to learn to relax and feel comfortable and confident in my ability to drive.  When I started with Lawrence I had already passed my theory however, he emphasised the need to continue learning as this would improve my knowledge making me a better driver.

Whilst with Lawrence I failed my test once over one very stupid mistake.  Lawrence talked me through what had happened giving me helpful advice to remember for next time.  A few weeks later I took my test again and passed.

As a teacher Lawrence is very knowledgeable.  He is very fair and pushes his pupils to be the best they can be.

Louise Breen, Limavady

I had over 40 driving lessons with LCD Driving Academy.  These lessons provided me with my only driving experiences.  I found tuition to be very good.  Lawrence was strict yet thorough in his tuition methods - as a complete novice and lacking in driving confidence, I personally felt I needed this kind of instruction.  I am now a very confident and careful driver.  I have already recommended LCD Driving Academy to friends.

Nicolle McMichael, Limavady

Lawrence Deehan is a great guy.  He’s really civil and most importantly brilliant at boosting your confidence.  I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy to anybody!

Gareth Simpson, Limavady

I took around 10 driving lessons with Lawrence from LCD Driving Academy, and passed my test! I had previously been with another driving school but failed my Theory and Practical tests.  After being recommended by I friend, I took around 10 driving lessons with Lawrence from LCD Driving Academy, and passed my practical driving test!  LCD Driving Academy’s driving tuition was FIRST CLASS!  During my initial lessons Lawrence described my driving skills as ‘shocking’.  He was very firm but fair and exceptionally patient.  I would ABSOLUTELY recommend LCD Driving Academy to family, friends and work colleagues.

Suzanne Maxwell, Dungiven

I had some driving experience prior to taking my lessons with LCD Driving Academy, although I wasn’t particularly confident especially changing gears.  Lawrence was calm, polite, pleasant and very thorough, taking tuition at my speed.  He prepared me for the theory test and kept me calm prior to both the Theory and Practical Driving tests. Thanks to LCD Driving Academy, I was over the moon to pass my test first time.  I was recommended LCD Driving Academy by a family member and would certainly recommend to friends and family.

Car & Trailer Test

Ellen MacKay

Lawrence is a fantastic instructor. I passed my trailer test first time! Lawrence helps you identify any areas of improvement and explains how you can correct them on your own. Lawrence has a great personality and I would recommend him again and again.

Graham Grieves

I passed my B+E test first time with Lawrence and I would highly recommend him as a teacher. I learnt more skills than I thought through doing this test and I feel that I am now a more competent and capable driver through his tuition, with and without a trailer. He is extremely thorough and guided me throughout training. Thanks Lawrence.

Adam Montgomery, Dervock

I passed my car and trailer test no problem as a result of clear and professional training provided by Lawrence. Training provided by Lawrence was not only the bare minimum to pass the test but also prepared me for driving after as it was filled with information which I had not been made aware of when doing my car test. Lawrence is an excellent instructor with a lot of experience and knowledge, would recommend him to anyone looking to undertake this training and would happily choose LCD driving academy again to undertake further training. Thanks again Lawrence.

Jonny Blair

Coming from a farming background I have been used to working with trailers, however Lawrence was able to show me that it's not just a case of hitching up and driving off. Making sure your trailer is road worthy and safe is important. He also alerted me to the various hazards to keep a look out for. Through his tuition I was able to pass the test first time and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to pass their trailer test.

Joanne Smyth, Coleraine

I recently passed my car and trailer test, being the first person to do so in the new Volkswagen Tiguan. I had little experience of driving with a trailer but with Lawrence's help I managed to pass first time. Lawrence was a friendly and knowledgeable instructor who made the training days enjoyable. I would highly recommend LCD Driving Academy to everyone.

Ellen MC Collum, Ballykelly

LCD Driving Academy, a 5* Company, training and equipment, excellent service and a pleasure to work with.

Michael McCloskey, Loughguile

I passed my B+E car trailer test first attempt thanks to the instruction from Lawrence.  My friend and I decided it was time to get the official trailer test to ensure we were fully insured while towing a trailer.  Lawrence took us for 2 half days tuition and delivered excellent advice and training, which not only ensured we passed but that we actually improved our techniques and road awareness.  We had a few bad habits (Martha) however Lawrence sorted them out.  I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone requiring the test.  I will be back to do my lorry test in the near future and LCD will be my only choice.

Victoria Harkness

I have recently passed my car and trailer test. Having no previous experience pulling a trailer, Lawrence gave me lots of confidence and explained everything in a really easy to understand way. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks so much Lawrence

Huge thanks to Lawrence Deehan for his excellent instruction with car and trailer, allowing me to pass the test in no time and first time! Lessons were very well informed, comfortable and easy to understand with Lawrence being very approachable when I had questions. Precise answers were always given and the time taken to ensure they were understood was much appreciated. The car and trailer used are both immaculate and great to drive and operate. I am sincerely grateful to Lawrence and would highly recommend his services to anyone. All the best and many thanks again.

Niall and Paul

My friend and I went with Lawrence because of the great recommendations, and he didn't let us down. We went for the car and trailer test. He puts you through all you need to know for your test and more, so you can breeze through the test. Thanx again Lawrence.

I would like to thank Lawrence for his expert training in the trailer B+E test. I come from a farm and thought i knew how to drive and reverse a trailer. Turns out there is alot more to learn than i thought! Lawrence does not miss a thing he has every point covered and if you have any questions he will be glad to help. I had heard lots of great reviews about Lawrence from friends and turns out i made the right choice of the trainer. Thanks so much Lawrence your training is second to none :)

David Forgie, Limavady

Good man Lawrence Deehan for getting Jonny through the test. Jonny passed his car and trailer test for towing, compulsory for the younger generations......Give Lawrence a call if you need to book in for yours. Otherwise you may be breaking the law, it's not worth the risk.

David Young

Passed my car and trailer test today. I couldn't recommend Lawrence enough! Even though I have had experience for years on the farm with a trailer! It's great how much I learnt on my training with Lawrence to help me pass my test! Couldn't recommend a better person to train with! Thanks again Lawrence.

William McMaster, Castledawson

I would definitely recommend Lawrence and LCD Driving to anyone looking to carry out any driving training. Thanks again for all your help Lawrence.

Kate McPherson

I recently completed the car and trailer training with Lawrence, having no previous experience with towing a trailer, I was surprised at how much confidence Lawrence gave me to go on to passing the test first time with a great result. I was apprehensive about taking the test as I had heard how hard it was, however, Lawrence’s excellent tuition encouraged me to develop the skills confidently in a short space of time, making me feel comfortable with towing the trailer. I learnt a lot from Lawrence and will continue to highly recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone who wishes to carry out any driving training as my experience was first class.

Thanks again Lawrence. Kate McPherson.

Sarah Lamont

I wanted my B+E for my horsebox, I done a couple days training with Laurence before my test, he is an excellent instructor, really took the stress out of learning by making everything so simple and explaining all problems in a very understanding way.

Enjoyed my time out, very easy man to get on with, funny and talkative! Have already recommended Laurence to friends.

Niall McCracken, Ballymoney

M. Hogg

I have just taken and passed my B&E test and would like to thank Lawrence for his expert tutition. I have been driving with a trailer for years but never thought the test would be as difficult as it was. After speaking to various other driving schools who said "a few hours tutition would do it " I would strongly disagree with that and say that when i contacted Lawrence the information he gave me was completely truthful & accurate as the tutition and test proved. I would definately recommend LCD Driving Academy to family and friends.

Paul McArthur

I'd like to thank Lawrence for getting me through my car and trailer test. Lawrence trains very much by the book to a very high standard. I felt very relaxed during my training course because Lawrence made me feel at ease and he shares a bit of craic.

Simon Mc Laughlin

Lawerence, thank you for the quick and professional lessons and test for the car and trailer. Passed first time no bother! It keeps us on the right side of the law for towing seed and fertiliser on the trailer behind the jeep. Cheers

Jennifer Maxwell – Dungiven
(H Maxwell Agricultural Contracting)

Prior to taking my B+E car and trailer test, i had some experience of towing and reversing trailers from my home farm. I did in fact learn a lot from this course and with Lawrence’s tuition I passed first time. I would highly recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone who wants a high quality level of tuition.

Niall Proctor

I have recently completed the B&E car and trailer test just this week and i would highly recommend LCD driving academy to all who are interestd in doing their car and trailer test ! It was a great success with the helpful instructor Lawrence who guided and adviced me to the success! I not only passed my test I learned alot and refreshed my driving skills in the short period of 3 days ! I will definitley spread the word to anyone I know who is considering the B&E car and trailer test to come along to LCD driving academy as it is the route to success!

William McFaul,Garvagh

I'd like to thank Lawrence for helping me through my B+E test (car and trailer). Although tuition was relaxed and we shared a bit of craic, Lawrence trained me very much by the book. I was required to tow and reverse trailers for work and I had some level of experience. I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy. I successfully passed the test first time

Lottie Miller

I couldn't have done it without your expert tuition Lawrence, and the occasional joke thrown in.... thanks very much, the only way is up!

Robert McConaghy, Ballymoney

Having little experience of towing a trailer with anything but a tractor I was wary about how I would get on with negotiating a car and trailer around the Maiden City! However I needn’t have worried, as with Laurence excellent, well informed tuition I had my test certificate within 4 half day training sessions! I would not hesitate to recommend Laurence’s superb training services, which come with outstanding value for money – something a famer such as myself truly appreciates!

James Taylor, Portrush
Vice President 'The Young Farmers' Club of Ulster'

Having experience of towing and reversing trailers while working on the farm, I was surprised when Lawrence from LCD Driving Academy 'claimed' that I would learn something from his Car & Trailer training course. LCD Driving Academy's course certainly did teach me a lot and with Lawrence's great tutoring, I successfully passed the test first time. I was recommended LCD Driving Academy by various friends and although I had a 30min drive to his course premises, it was certainly worth the effort in my part. I am considering further driving courses and LCD Driving Academy will be my first port of call. I would without hesitation, recommend LCD Driving Academy to friends and family.

Pamela Dickson, Armoy

Coming from a farming background I had some level of experience towing trailers.  LCD Driving Academy’s Car & Trailer Course was very good and Lawrence’s approach was relaxed and down to earth.  Unfortunately I didn’t pass first time, but Lawrence went through the course very thoroughly an hour before my second attempt, and clearly identified areas which I needed to improve on.  This made a huge difference and I was delighted to pass the test.  I am now very confident in towing and reversing trailers.  Initially recommended by a family member, I recommend LCD Driving Academy to others.  LCD Driving Academy’s Car & Trailer Courses are also very keenly priced and the quality of tuition very good.

David Martin, Lisburn

I had no experience of towing and reversing trailers, so I was less than confident prior to taking LCD Driving Academy’s Car & Trailer Course.  Tuition with Lawrence was BRILLIANT.  Training was very informal and I was delighted to pass first time.  I would say I’m now very confident in towing and reversing trailers.  I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy.  Vary competitively priced too!

James Bonner, Enniskillen

I was required to tow and reverse trailers for work and I had some level of experience.  I completed LCD Driving Academy’s Car & Trailer Course over 4 half days.  Lawrence was a good instructor.  He quickly identified areas of inexperience and patiently guided me through these.  I pass my test first time.  I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy’s L Course to family, friends and workmates.

LGV Course

Eoighan Rogers, Limavady

That’s the first part of the lorry test passed, the Module 4 CPC passed also. Thank you to Lawrence Deehan at LCD Driving Academy, his lorry and training are 1st class. Def recommended for a trainer provider.
.

Ryan Judge, Ballerin

I had a goal to become a Hgv Driver since I was very young. Going to truck shows, spotting lorries the dream was always to be a driver of one. Due to commitments and the cost of the test time went by until I said that's it. I saved hard for a full year and went for it. I FAILED, DEVASTATED.

I then changed Driving Schools to LCD. Lawrences business compared to the previous training school was like day and night. Being Re-trained by a fully qualified driving instructor proved well on the day of my test as I PASSED.

Lawrences lorry was a pleasure to drive with modern installed front/rear camera's. Very clean and well maintained. LCD provides a excellent service with no hidden costs.Only one regret, and that is I never went to LCD first. I'll be back for my C+E
Thanks Lawrence & Brian

Sam McClure

After being recommend LCD Driving Academy by a work colleague I contacted Lawrence in the hope he would guide me in the right direction to achieve my Class 2 license. From the 1st phone call that's exactly what happened. Lawrence explained the process step by step, from medical all the way through to the final CPC qualification. The driving tuition provided was first class and I have no doubt LCD's Daf Lorry is the best on the road. Highly recommended.

Martin Callaghan, Derry

I passed my class 1 lorry driving test first time all thanks to Lawrence he is a really sound fella he teaches you the skills you need so you pass first time unlike other companies I was previously with. He had me learning essential skills from the start I would recommend Lawrence to anyone looking to be a HGV driver because he is a brilliant instructor who is able to joke and laugh and Ii felt very comfortable while learning also he's alot cheaper than the company I did my class 2 with which was a bonus in my eyes and one of the reasons I went to LCD Training. Thanks again Lawrence you're a gent.

Laura Shettle

I would like to say a massive thank you to Lawrence Deehan and Brian, who helped me in achieving my goal in getting my HGV licence today. Without both of your hard work and patience I never would of even dreamed of going for my test let alone passing it. I can not recommend you enough Lawrence Deehan from start right though to finish the confidence and help you gave me was top class. I would give you 5 stars plus for all the help and time you have put in with me. Top class service from top class instructors.

Ciaran Mellon

I took my LGV Training with LCD and I have to say the training provided was top class and the Lorry was a joy to drive, I went from never having been in a lorry before to passing my test in a short space of time Lawrence and Brian are both gentlemen and I would recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone looking a professional friendly service Definitely a 5 * rating from me

Alan Hayes

Thank you Lawrence and Brian for the fantastic training I received for my lorry licence. Both you guys made me feel totally at ease even though I was nervous in the beginning. Everything is in place at LCD to help you pass your test. Great instructors, great lorry and great training. Highly recommended *****

Stephen McDonald, Fleck Imet Metal Solutions

Many Thanks to LCD for clear & concise instruction during three days of training for the LGV class C, the new DAF auto is a real pleasure to drive. Looking forward to the C+E

Davy Campbell, Limavady

I would like to thank LCD driving academy for their excellent tuition and experience and keeping me on the ball on my C+E lessons there new truck was a breeze to drive and I would highly recommend LCD driving academy.

Declan McConway, Limavady

I passed my c+e lorry & trailer test with Lawrence and his new 2014 euro 6 fully automatic cf daf. This was my first time driving a fully automatic lorry, and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure to have experienced driving such an amazing lorry. The reason I chose LCD was simply because they have a reputation for setting a high standard of excellence in driver tuition and also a high level pass rate by the DVA. These were the key factors for me. From day one Lawrence explained everything in a very clear and understanding way. This made learning with him very enjoyable. Again I'd like to thank Lawrence for his help and guidance in training me up to a level of professional lorry driving. Cheers Lawrence.

Tony Sellers

Having passed the test, I would like to thank Lawrence for his help, patience, training and effort that he has given me. Having never reversed a trailer of any kind I was very apprehensive of taking this test, but the training and practise Lawrence gave, helped me gain enough confidence to go for it. His attitude and knowledge, coupled with his ability to break it down into understandable pieces is priceless. I have done various driver training with other instructors, none of whom came close Lawrence when it came down to it. I have no hesitation in recommending LCD for anyone looking to drive cars or lorries, in fact I believe it would be foolish to go anywhere else. Once again Thank You Lawrence for all your help.

Raymond Dallas, Macosquin, Coleraine.

I went to LCD driving academy to do my C & C+ E. A family member advised me that LCD where the only training company worth going to.

LCD told me straight from day one all the information that I needed to know with no hidden costs and I am pleased to say, I was not disappointed with the results.

I passed both tests first time + the module 4 CPC test. Thanks to Brian in category C and Lawrence in category C+E. I would like to thank them both for their efforts in helping me achieve my passes and gaining more knowledge and information on the dangers to look out for.

I would highly recommend LCD to anyone wishing to achieve a driving skill for life, in any category.

Brilliant.

Kelvin Shields

Highly recommended 5* instructor, a pleasure but a tight 5 days but well worth it thanks lawerance, regards Kelvin

Tony Sellers

A big thank you to Lawrence and Brian for all your efforts in helping me pass my lorry test on Friday. The tuition from both was second to none and tailored for my needs. The professional approach and yet friendly, personal interaction helped ease any nerves or worries. Both took time to explain what and more importantly why I should be doing something and what to avoid.

The Lorry is in an excellent condition which also helped, having already had experience in driving "dodgy" vehicles with other trainers. If anyone is reading this and looking for a place to learn, I would strongly recommend that they look no further than here.

Paul Miller

I wanted to obtain my category c and c+e licence. After many friends and family telling me to go Lawerence I got in contact and from day one he was nothing but supportive. I had driven tractors and large machinery around the farm but I learnt so much in the days I was training.

I would like to thank Lawrence for putting me through my cat C licence and to Brian Boyle who helped me obtain my C+E licence and would recommend him to any one.

Andrew Logan

LCD driving academy was an excellent help in getting me through my lorry test. Lawrence is an superb instructor who was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend him to others. I look forward to the next challenge of the trailer test and I am confident that with Lawrence's expert assistance I will have the same success. Many thanks for all your help to date.

David Carr

Just a quick email to thank you for helping me pass my C test earlier.

The tuition given was outstanding. I've been used to driving a car over the past 8 years so I had a lot of bad habits.... However your firms but fair approach to teaching helped me to cut out the habits. In turn leading to me passing my c test earlier today. Even minutes before my test you were reassuring me on what to do etc. I honestly can’t thank you enough and I will definitely recommend you to everyone.

Tommy Burns, Derry

I done my 4 day training with Lawrence for my Cat C licence and must say his attention to detail and the way he gets his point across is second to none. I really enjoyed the whole experience and hope to complete my C+E very soon. The atmosphere he creates in the cab just settles everyone down and really helpled me alot. Thanks Da. (LOL)

Hope your business goes from strength to strength.

I would like to give a special thanks to Lawrence and his team for their expert training which led me on to passing my lorry test first time. I am pretty confident that I will get the lorry and trailer first time as well because Lawrence is an excellent instructor and pushes you 140%. I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone as he is upfront about everything and no nonsense. Thank-you Lawrence

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lawrence Deehan for putting me through my LGV test.Working on a farm from a young age, I had experience of manoevering large vehicles and trailers, however I was quite apprehensive about driving an articulated lorry on the road. Lawrence put me at ease and was very professional yet friendly and helpful throughout. He was willing to answer any questions or queries that I had along the way.

My experience as a whole, was a very enjoyable one and one in which I felt I was being pushed to the limit. Subsequently I got both tests first go! Once again I would like to thank Lawrence for this amazing opportunity, and at 21 years of age I believe that having my LGV test will have many benefits for the future including the fact that I will be more employable. I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone hoping to drive either a rigid or articulated lorry.

Having known about LCD Driving Academy from previous driver training (B+E) I had no hesitation deciding who to contact for my LGV training. To obtain the C+E Licence is a lengthy process but Lawrence made it as simple as possible. Lawrence was willing to go the extra mile training me to a higher standard than required and teaching me things over and above what the test required, It really made me more confident on the road. I enjoyed my time at LCD it was a fun experience and would recommend it to anyone that is wanting to learn in the classes that Lawrence train's in.

I'd like to thank Lawrence for helping me threw my c+e test, he is very strict an let's you away with very little mistakes,which sounds to be off putting but hand on my heart it prepares you for your test to a high standard. Although he is strict he also makes you at ease when driving and is more than willing to take time to talk or show you any problems you may have (try not to have lawrence standing out in the rain watching you drive over his cone like I did, lol, I'll get you another one Lawrence) I'd highly recommend Lawrence for any driving lessons you require, I did my car an motorbike with two different instructors an they wouldn't come close to experience or professionalism that Lawrence showed,

Thanks Lawrence

It has always been a personal ambition of mine to learn to drive a lorry.  Lawrence was recommended to me for training.  He was really good and was very patient (had to be with me) and put me at ease.  Although tuition was relaxed and we shared a bit of craic, Lawrence trains very much ‘by the book’, is firm and takes no nonsense.  All these attributes certainly resulted in me passing the test first time.  I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy’s LGV Course to anyone. I am currently doing the HGV course with LCD Driving Academy and plan to also do the C & T course in the near future.

If anyone can get you through the LGV Test, LCD Driving Academy can!  Lawrence has a non nonsense approach to his tuition method but he knows how to keep himself and the learner calm under pressure.  My experience with LCD Driving Academy was BRILLIANT.  Without Lawrence I definitely wouldn’t have passed the LGV Test first time.  I really can’t recommend him enough.  I’m now seriously considering the 2nd stage in January.

Advanced Driving Lessons

Robert Smyth, Drumahoe

I run a wedding car hire business and do a lot of VIP driving work.  I wanted to do an advanced driving course to ‘overhaul’ my existing driving experience.  I did initially set out to compare course prices, but after an initial phone call followed by meeting I knew that Lawrence was the best in his field to offer me the instruction I need.  Lawrence is a great guy, superb trainer and his advance driving lessons are excellent.  I am now a proud member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists a great accolade to hold for any driving employment as it’s proof that you are a competent driver.  I’m seriously considering other courses with LCD Driving Academy.  I have already recommended LCD Driving Academy to a friend.  Make LCD Driving Academy your first port of call!

Extended Driving Test

Andrew Kincaid

I got in contact with Lawrence in September after many recommendations from friends and colleagues and my experience of learning with Lawrence has even surpassed these glowing endorsements. I was due to sit an extended test and hadn’t driven in over 10 years, but Lawrence was exceptional at getting me up to standard and giving me confidence. We had a very limited time to complete this and I am delighted to say that after 2 rather intense months, that I have passed my extended test first time. I am so glad I learned with him!

Lawrence gave me perfectly tailored tutoring, giving me the push when I needed it and always doing so in a very supportive manner. He has been forever accommodating especially considering the difficulty in arranging lessons around work and I am forever grateful for being able to fit me in at such short notice and within such a tight timeframe.

Lawrence, thank you so much for the last couple of months and I will most definitely be recommending you to anyone I know is learning to drive.
