Where do I even start?! After having a bad experience with attempting driving lessons/tests a few years ago, Sarah took me under her wing in September 2020 and has been super accommodating to how I learn. As an anxious person, driving can be overwhelming for me but Sarah's been super helpful and understanding. There's been great communication before, during and after lessons. She uses a range of different teaching methods so there's one to suit you. Would highly recommend Sarah and really going to miss our lessons now I've passed! THANKS A BUNCH X

First Time Pass
So happy I chose Sarah to teach my daughter how to drive. With lessons being on and off through the various lockdowns, Sarah had been accommodating throughout. Especially when I managed to book a practical test with 3 days notice!!! Sarah is a very honest teacher, and gave Talia the confidence she needed, and also gave me reassurance that she would be safe out on the road on her own!! Thank you for everything.

Absolutely fantastic, I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough, when we initially expressed an interest in lessons - Sarah took the time to come and meet us all and explain the journey Lewis was about to embark on. Sarah is so hardworking and dedicated to all her students and fills them all with confidence.

Chloe UnwinChloe Unwin
Passed first time
Fantastic !!! I definitely had the best of both worlds with having two LDC instructors as after Clive took retirement I carried on my lessons with Sarah. From having two LDC instructors I can say that the company is truly great and it’s system of recording your progress really makes sure you are able to progress further and quicker with your driving. She is truly amazing!! She is such a lovely person which makes you feel at ease and it also made driving lessons enjoyable. Also, she was always on time and very organized;with her amazing lists that make sure you cover all known test routes, roundabouts and car parks. Thank you Sarah! πŸ™‚

Sarah is an amazing driving instructor - up there with the best! After a bad experience with a previous instructor she took me on, built up my confidence and made me the driver I am. I cannot imagine I would have that pass without her and I can’t thank her enough I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking to learn to drive. She is patient, explains things in an easy to understand way and it is just lovely spending an hour or two to have a chat.

If you are looking for a driving instructor who is patient, kind, reliable, flexible, supportive, friendly and makes you feel at ease then look no further! Before learning to drive I was very nervous about going on the busier roads so Sarah started my lessons in the evening and took me on the quieter roads to build my confidence up. Sarah was always on time and if I ever needed to change my driving lesson she was very accommodating. I miss my Wednesday afternoon lessons. Sarah is the best instructor there is! Thank you for everything!

Laura Simpson Laura Simpson

Sarah was a great driving instructor. From start to finish Sarah put in so much time, patience and knowledge to help me on my journey to pass. Everything was done at my own pace which helps if you have extra nerves and I always felt comfortable driving alongside her. Sarah tried her best to ease my nerves before my test and I'm very thankful for everything she has done. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a driving instructor in the future. πŸ‘

Harvey LewisHarvey Lewis
First time pass
Our son Harvey has just passed his test, (today!!) after learning with Sarah since August. From the moment she did her home visit to meet us, we felt totally happy that we’d made the right choice! Not only is she a fantastic driving instructor, she is such a wonderful person who made Harvey feel at ease from the second he sat behind the wheel. He has looked forward to his weekly lessons and learnt in depth so quickly. I think he’ll actually miss his lessons! We can’t thank you enough Sarah! We totally recommend LDC Driving School with Sarah Knott if you’re looking for someone lovely to help you learn πŸ‘πŸΌx

Sarah comes most definately highly recommended. The calm and positive tuition my daughter received was amazing. Sarah's patience, encouragement and high level of communication was so re-assuring for a very anxious young girl about to start her driving journey. So grateful to Sarah for a pass first time on both theory and practical.

My daughter has been learning to drive with Sarah after losing her confidence with another driving instructor. Right from the beginning Sarah has been positive, calm and reassuring. Her teaching style is amazing putting my daughter at ease. This has resulted in my daughter regaining her confidence and passing her test today. I can not recommend Sarah highly enough, she is brilliant.

Marianne NichollMarianne Nicholl
Passed 1st Time
I started driving with Sarah after several recommendations from other people, suffering from high anxiety levels low self-esteem and confidence I decided to take the plunge!! After explaining my situation to sarah, she said we would do this together and so we did!! I not only learnt to drive but learned that I was actually good at it too!! On my good days I was taught with kindness patience, encouragement and praise. On my bad days stopping, reflecting on how far I had come how well I was doing, the truth of what was going on rather than the story going on in my head, then moving forward again. So this week not only did I pass but I did this first time with flying colours!!! How did that happen? With Sarah thats how. To anyone wanting to learn to drive and particularly those with high levels of anxiety I can't recommend Sarah highly enough, I now have my freedom & independence something I never believed would happen. I honestly don't think I could have done this without sarah as my teacher, and I will be eternally grateful not only for passing my driving test but the confidence and belief in myself this has brought with it and the knock on effect it will have for the rest of my life. God bless you sarah and from the bottom of my heart... THANKYOUUUUUU!!!!!β™‘πŸ™πŸ˜˜

Jessica Barker Jessica Barker
1st time Pass
I was terrified of driving and had put it off for a long time, Sarah was so patient and calm that even on my most anxious days she managed to pull out some progression and success in my driving ! I cannot thank Sarah and the program with my two filled in task books and online theory tests, enough for everything she’s done to get me ready for my test. I wouldn’t have passed my theory and driving test without her relenting good humour and positive feedback! To recommend her highly would be an understatement, she is simply the best (que the music) !!! Thank you Sarah !!!!! 🀩🀩🀩

Sarah is a fabulous driving instructor and mentor. She made our daughter feel as ease from her very first lesson, always full of encouragement and quick to spot areas for improvement. Sarah is also flexible with her lessons, happy to fit round her pupils when needed. She promotes the LDC book and app which enhances the practical side of learning to drive and helps the learner really understand the rules of the road. Can’t thank you enough, look forward to my other daughter passing with you soon.
