Dan has been a fantastic teacher from day 1. He has been continually patient even when I couldn’t get it and when I wanted to give up, he talked me out of it and spent so much time exposing it to me. I had zero faith in myself being a very nervous driver but Dan kept telling me I could do it and was always honest about my progress. Highly recommended to get even a driver like me to test never mind pass first time with only 3 faults. Thanks Dan you are a star!

Great courses. Liked the LDC system. Dan was a calm trainer who explained things in an easy and calm manner. Recommended.

Passed with only 2 minors
Excellent from start to finish. Was completely supportive during my first lesson. Making me feel confident and safe. As our lessons progressed I gained more confidence and responsibility but always felt safe. Dan is a top guy, very easy to talk to and get along with. He has lesson plans before you even get in the car which he adapts as you drive. Cannot recommend enough.

I came from another driving instructor also a franchisee and was much impressed with Dan and the LDC system. Would recommend.

I highly recommend Dan, not just another driving instructor but a mentor who really does care about teaching the fundamental skills required to become a decent driver. As someone who lacked confidence, Dan instilled in me a sense of self belief and encouraged me to trust my skills. Along with passing on his technical knowledge in a patient and supportive manner, Dan is also quite a funny guy. Appreciate all the effort Dan, thanks for helping me pass both theory and practical first time.

Dan is not only a fantastic teacher but he is super cool! He makes you feel relaxed and calm because of his fun loving approach! I highly recommend Dan Alford for your driving needs. I was so lucky to have found him as he believed In me so much! That support lead on to me passing my theory and practical first time. I learnt to drive a bit later in life so I do think the older you get the less confidence you have but Dan knocked that out of me straight away! Thanks for everything Dan! Fran Ludlow x

Refresher course
I would highly recommend Dan a driving instructor. having not driven since passing my test 12 years ago, I was incredibly nervous about taking that first step behind the wheel. Dan couldn't have been more reassuring and supportive and made me feel instantly calmer in the car. He is informative without being overly technical: calm and encouraging and he helped me to get over my fear and find the joy in driving again *****

Dan is a very supportive and patient instructor who wants the best for his students. Throughout my time as his student I have learnt how to drive with no experience, and I have passed first time with only 4 minors. The price of the lessons are very reasonable and you do get value for money. I highly recommend Dan if you want to pass first time!

Dan is a friendly, calm and very reassuring instructor who helped me build both my skills and confidence on the road in no time at all. Passed my test at the first attempt and it doesn't get better than that! Really couldn't recommend him more highly! 5* Stu C.

Just completed my one week intensive course with Dan, what a great instructor. Calm head and easy to follow explanations. Had a great week. Dan is easy to get along with and knows how to put you at ease and help you get a big juicy pass at the end. Highly recommended instructor. A*

I have been through several driving instructor companies and not felt at home with any of them. Dan has made me feel confident and secure and I can see I am improving already.
