Weekly Lessons
Learning to drive, using the LD System, can be spread over several weeks and lessons can be booked individually or in a block at a discount.

Unlike the courses described below the LD driving skills videos and workbook are not included in the lesson price, but can be purchased separately. As an alternative to buying the driving skills videos you can rent them, for a nominal fee, directly from your local LDC instructor.

Test Booster Course
(15 hours of driving lessons, the driving test and the LD DVD/Workbook)

For those who are nearing test standard and who just need a short burst of lessons prior to the test we have the Test Booster Course. It is also ideal for those who have had an attempt at the test some time ago but haven’t had any lessons since. The in-car training is 15 hours on a one pupil to one instructor basis. (This includes 2 hours for attending the driving test). You need to allocate a further 5 hours to complete the home study, using the LD System DVD and workbook, bringing the total duration of the course to around 20 hours.

Midway Pass Course
(20 hours of driving lessons, the driving test and the LD DVD/Workbook)

For those who have already learned the basic control skills of driving we have the Midway Pass Course.

The in-car training provided is 20 hours on a one pupil to one instructor basis. (This includes 2 hours for attending the driving test). You need to allocate a further 5 hours to complete the home study, using the LD System DVD and workbook, bringing the total duration of this course to around 25 hours.

How many hours will it take?
According to the latest Government survey people learning to drive in the UK buy on average 52 hours of professional driving lessons. From this you will appreciate it can easily cost you over a £1,000 to learn to drive and take up to a year to pass the practical driving test. With LDC's revolutionary LD System of driving tuition the average number of hours to pass the test is closer to 30 hours - a potential saving of up to 22 hours from the norm or about £450. This is why it is important to select the right driving school and training approach.

The LD System isn't only useful for intensive training it enables weekly lessons to be conducted in much the same way with clear targets to aim for thus saving time and speeding up progress. The LD System DVD video and workbook also helps to overcome the "two steps forward one step back" problem of weekly lessons by allowing you to revise your last lesson while preparing for the next. This is particularly true if the materials are also properly used by a family member or friend to provide complementary practice in between lessons with your driving instructor.
