Learning to drive is not just a matter of passing a test, but being safe on the roads. My objective is for all my students to be excellent drivers in as few lessons as possible.
Hello my name is James Walker, I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) operating my own LDC driving school. Although based in Hartland I normally cover Bideford, Barnstaple, Bude, Hartland and Holsworthy plus the surrounding areas. Certain days I am based in Barnstaple (Petroc) and Bude (Budehaven) to fit in with free time or link up with the start or end of your day. Why get the school bus when you can drive yourself?!
Why learn with me
I have been specially trained by LDC in the use of the incredible LD System and the latest student-centred learning techniques. This combined with my caring, friendly personality will help to ensure you learn to drive
- at a pace to best suit your needs and,
- in such a way that you will look forward to and enjoy every lesson.
If you need to get started straight away you can
- call or text me direct on 07740943507 or 01237 440181
- or buy online and I will get back to you as soon as possible to firm up a start date etc.
- or complete my contact form and I will get back to you
If you are not sure what you want or need at this stage I can potentially provide a free, no obligation home visit with you and other family members to discuss all the options available. Alternatively, if you just want to find out more about me and what I can offer please read on.
Driving courses and driving lesson packages
I can provide a range of courses with a driving test booked at the end to suit your needs. Each one of the driving courses shown above include
- access to my LDC online students learning hub (see below),
- the LDC driving skills DVD/workbook and
- the provision of a driving test within the price.
Together we book the driving test and then plan a schedule of driving lessons leading up to that date.
Alternatively, I can also offer you "pay as you go" driving lessons. The choice is yours.
About the LD System I use
Pass quicker for less with the incredible LD System. Watch and study how to perform each driving task before your next driving lesson and/or watch it afterwards to remind you of what you have learnt. Save time and money on unnecessary explanations in car. Make more rapid progress and see your confidence grow as you mark off each of the targets in your LDC workbook and/or online. Nothing is left to chance and you know exactly where you are in the process at anytime. You can see for yourself when you are ready for the test, what you have covered and what remains outstanding.
Make your first driving test your last and
equip yourself for a lifetime of safe driving
My LDC online students learning hub
The LD system is also available online through multiple devices via my LDC online students learning hub - shown below:
All my students have access to my LDC online students learning hub available through this website. This allows you to prepare for your Theory and Hazard Perception test as well as giving you access to the online version of the LD system. In this way I can monitor your progress and help you through your Theory Test preparation as well as your preparation for the driving test.
