Throw away those L plates – pronto! David’s Driving School

DAVID Smart has a passion for seeing his learner drivers ripping up their L plates as soon as possible.

He said: “I

became a driving instructor because I wanted a job with real satisfaction and there is nothing better than seeing someone pass their test first time.

“I was also always being told by friends and work colleagues that I was a calm and relaxed type of person and that I would make a great driving instructor,” he added. David was trained by Learner Driving Centres, which claim to save individuals about £450 in lesson costs.

According to Government figures, learners each buy on average 52 hours of

driving tuition. In total, those who passed had on average 67 hours of driving experience including practice with family or friends.

But with LDC’s cutting-edge training materials and methods, the average number of hours to pass the test is closer to 30 - a potential saving of up to 22 hours. David said: “Everybody is different and the LD System allows for flexibility in lessons so that you learn to drive safely at a rate that suits you.” For a limited period only David is offering the first five hours of driving lessons for only £60, plus the LD workbook worth £14.95 free of charge. This offer is not available to those nearing test standard. He added: “To help you decide which course would best suit you I provide a free, no obligation, home visit. At this meeting I explain to you how the LD System works and what each course provides.”
