Today I passed my test feeling like a safe and confident driver. Alastair has always been very calm and patient with me even at the most challenging of times. He is a very pleasant and friendly guy and I could not have hoped for anything more from a driving instructor.

Alastair was a very patient, helpful and calm instructor. I was nervous to learn how to drive, but he quickly put me at ease. He was very good at explaining manoeuvres in a way that made them easy to remember and perform. The end of lesson recap was always extremely helpful in recognising what your strengths were, and what needed to be worked on. I would definitely recommend Alastair to anyone looking for a driving instructor. Thanks Alastair!

Driving was Alastair was a nice experience. His lessons really helped me become a better and safer driver, hence why I passed my test. Alastair is also very nice and easy to get a long with. He does keep you right though and insures you dont make mistakes and if you do he tells you exactly what you did wrong and how to improve it. If I could rate my experience with him it would definitely be 10/10. Thanks so much for everything and best wishes for the future.

I highly recommend Alastair as your driving instructor. His patience helped establish a constructive approach to learning where I was able to reflect on my positive driving abilities as well as those which needed worked. Having stopped my lessons midway through,I came back stronger having gained the confidence to continue with my lessons. Alastair made me feel welcome and was focused on getting me back on track. He expressed both appreciation and enthusiasm when particular manoeuvres were carried out appropriately. Whenever a mistake was made, he remained calm and showed no judgement towards this. This created a relaxed environment where progress was made easier achievable through his guidance. I am very thankful and highly recommend Alastair as your teacher!

As someone who has put off getting lessons for years, Alastair helped me gain confidence weekly due to his guidance and calm demeanour.

Couldn’t have done it with anyone else- Alastair is a great instructor and I cannot thank him enough for all his help the last few months :-)

Ciara from CromartyCiara from Cromarty
Passed in Inverness with just 3 minors
Alastair was an absolutely amazing driving instructor. As someone who suffers from anxiety and had put off learning to drive for the best part of a decade because of this, I couldn't have been happier to have found Alastair as an instructor. He took on board my concerns and made sure he not only remained calm himself but kept me calm too. Learning to drive was a hurdle I was not sure I would manage but with Alastair's calm and caring nature I went into my test knowing that I was confident and able. I am incredibly grateful to Alastair for his guidance and support and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Rebecca from ArpafeelieRebecca from Arpafeelie

A huge thank you, Alastair. All my driving was done with Alastair with no other practice possible. I was very anxious at the start, but with Alastair's patience, encouragement and calm approach I began to really look forward to our weekly sessions. He was the perfect teacher for me and I would highly recommend him to everyone

I was initially really nervous about learning to drive, but Alastair’s patience and positivity made me feel safe at all times and much more confident in my own driving ability. I particularly liked the fact that Alastair’s lessons are quite flexible, as he gives you the option to work on specific skills that you feel you need to improve on. Thank you so much!

Passed with just 4 minors, a lovely drive.
When I first started my driving lessons with Alistair I have never sat in the driving seat of a car before. I’m so thankful for his patience throughout the process and for pushing me out of my comfort zone. Alistair is a great teacher and helped me to overcome all my driving related fears. I’m so happy to have passed my test to get driving.

Extremely happy I’ve now passed my driving test first time! My learning experience was very positive and I feel I have learned extra knowledge on how to be safe on the road and how to deal with certain situations. I also feel the techniques I learned from my dad teaching me how to drive  have made me a more confident driver. I would recommend to anyone who wants to start driving who is anxious (as I was extremely) you will feel calmed down straight away and will 100% pass! thanks for the pass!😁

Working with Alastair was fab, he's very focused on what you want to do! He's very patience and makes you aware on what could and what has be improved on! He's very open and easy to chat to and is easy to have a laugh with! Would 100% recommend him as without I wouldn't have felt so confident and relaxed before going into my test! Thank you alastair! 

AmyAmy
Today I passed my driving test and I couldn’t have achieved it without Alastair. After taking a 2 year break from lessons, I was anxious about starting up again and wanted to ensure I found the right instructor for me. I decided to book in with Alastair after reading his experience and testimonials. I was so happy with the progress, within 3 lessons with him he put me at ease and I had my confidence back and within 6 months I have passed my test! Alastair is very patient, understanding and flexible around my working pattern. It was an absolute pleasure having him as my driving instructor and I can’t thank him enough for the support in achieving a new freedom in life! Couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

Caden from the Black Isle

Alastair from AvochAlastair from Avoch
1st time pass with only 2 minors
Alastair s patience and calmness is the key to his success as a driving instructor. Any time I made a mistake, he would remain calm and helpful, getting me to think through what I had done so that I knew for the next time. His sense of humour and kindness was very reassuring during my lessons, and I felt that I knew him well by the time I passed my test. Learning to drive with Alastair was a joy. I couldn't recommend him more highly

Will from InvernessWill from Inverness

Alastair was a fantastic driving instructor. He stayed calm and collected all the time and installed a great level of consistency in my driving. When mistakes were made in my driving Alastair was brilliant at talking them over and suggested different ways to minimise mistakes and better the driving. Would recommend to anyone looking to gain a real understanding of what is needed to pass a driving test and to drive well in the future

Andrew from FortroseAndrew from Fortrose
Passing 1st time with just 4 minors in Inverness
I was very nervous with driving when I started off, I could barely drive down a small country road without being in a cold sweat, however after consistent lessons and improvement I found my confidence building and my driving improving. Driving is one of the most useful skills a person can have and I am so glad that I learned before I left for Uni. Alastair was the best instructor for me as I can panic in situations however he was able to keep calm and work through difficult situations with me. A massive thanks! I love driving πŸ˜„

Molly from DrumderfitMolly from Drumderfit
Passed in Alness with just 6 minors
Alastair has been an amazing instructor and is such a lovely guy. After having 2 previous instructors who made me nervous he really helped to calm me down and build my confidence when I didn't think I d ever be able to drive confidently. He is extremely patient and helps you to fix silly mistakes while being really encouraging! Couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Would definitely recommend! Thank you so much Alastair.

Robert from Rosemarkie in InvernessRobert from Rosemarkie in Inverness
1st time pass

Alastair is a great driving instructor who will not just get you through your driving test but will also teach you good habits that will keep you safe in the future. He was very calm and patient with me and I felt comfortable the whole time. He really knows his stuff when it comes to the driving test, we went through many a mock test that were actual routes in use. When it came to the week before my test Alastair really made an effort to fit me in as many lessons as possible and I really appreciate that.
Thanks for being such a great instructor Alastair

RuthRuth
Fantastic pass for Ruth in Inverness after working so hard. Super result.
Having previously had many driving lessons with other instructors and having found the process incredibly stressful and nerve wracking I started lessons with Alistair. From the very beginning Alistair was incredibly patient, supportive and understanding of my needs. I was terrified of driving but over a series of lessons Alistair helped me work through those fears at my own pace taught me how to drive a car (not just how to pass the test). There is no way I would have passed without his help and I would recommend him to anyone, especially for those nervous drivers!! Thank you Alistair!!

Lewis from AvochLewis from Avoch
Passed 1st time with in Inverness with only 5 minors
My experience of learning to drive with Alastair Field was an enjoyable and incredibly fulfilling  experience. Learning to drive can be overwhelming and a bit confusing at times, so learning to drive correctly and safely is vital. A lot of it comes down to the instructor and the way they teach you. From the word go Alastair made me feel at ease. Alastair took me from being heavy footed and sketchy to be being a well rounded confident driver. Alastair accommodates how you drive and how you want to be taught, from going through it in the information book beforehand to just getting out on the road and getting experience. If you’re looking for a driving instructor, I would highly recommend Alastair Field

Beth from North KessockBeth from North Kessock
Passed with only 2 minors in Inverness receiving this lovely comment from the examiner "I haven't felt so comfortable during a test"
Learning to drive with Alastair really helped my confidence as a nervous driver. He put me at ease completely which allowed me to concentrate and drive to my full potential. Having failed with another instructor previously, my confidence was completely knocked. Alastair helped me build this up again and I couldn't recommend him enough! Thank you! 🚘

Alice from WyndhillAlice from Wyndhill

Bryn from CromartyBryn from Cromarty

Alastair is positive, firm and easy to get on with as a driving instructor. Even when I failed he was very encouraging and gave me the confidence I needed to try again. Not only  did he make sense, he made driving less stressful and tense as I thought it would be, he helped me recognise and correct my errors which was critical to passing my test. Thanks Alastair

Sarah from StornowaySarah from Stornoway

Margaret from FortroseMargaret from Fortrose
Passed her test in Alness

After years of giving up and believing I would never be a capable driver, lacking in confidence, full of nerves, I found Alastair. A truly fantastic instructor, finding a way to teach me to drive that helped me relax and understand and also helping me to believe in myself. Alastair has a very friendly, calm, patient manner and I know that without his continued support I would not have succeeded. I recommend Alastair a 5 star driving instructor.
THANK YOU SO MUCH 😊

Meryn from BarraMeryn from Barra
Passed 1st time in Inverness
Being someone who has difficulty with learning practical tasks, I was very apprehensive about learning to drive. Then I received a gift block of lessons with Alastair and how lucky I was! Alastair is the perfect instructor for anyone, he adapts to your learning style and no matter how nervous you are about driving he keeps you motivated with a positive attitude and never leaves you feeling like you re bad at driving. I managed to pass 1st time with Alastair and I have put it down to his calm and encouraging character, and would recommend him to everyone of all experience levels, thanks so much Alastair!

Katie from MunlochyKatie from Munlochy
Passed 1st time in Alness
I started lessons with Alastair after switching from a different instructor who I had been with for months. This is the best decision I made. Alastair s calm and relaxed demeanour along with how he used teaching methods that suited me helped me feel more confident and less anxious behind the wheel. After a few short months with Alastair I sat my test for the first time and passed!! I don't think I would have passed so soon if I didn't switch to Alastair, he is an amazing instructor and I would recommend him to anyone

Jennifer Andrews from InvernessJennifer Andrews from Inverness
After years of starting lessons and giving up, going through numerous instructors I finally found Alastair. He was fantastic, striving to find the best teaching methods to suit my needs. I was a very nervous driver and Alastair helped me overcome these nerves and become the 'driver in charge ". Alastair is patient and calm and I really believe I could not have done it without his help and support. I can not wait to get on the road and finally take my little girl to the beach and have many road trips. Thank you Alastair you are a true gem xxxx

Passed 1st time pass at Alness test centre
After 15 yrs using public transport I decided it was time to learn to drive. I was looking for either an intensive or semi-intensive course as I knew I would become bored doing only a couple of lessons a week. I was lucky to find Alastair, who became my instructor. Within 4 weeks of starting my lessons I passed my test 1st time. I am sure this would not have happened if I didn t have Alastair as my instructor. Thank you for being patient and a calming influence

Abby MacGregor from MunlochyAbby MacGregor from Munlochy
Superb 1st time pass at Inverness.
My driving experience with Alastair was very enjoyable. He was calm and very encouraging. I found the LDC method of learning very practical as the step up between lessons was challenging but manageable to push my driving that little bit further each time. Thanks a lot Alastair

SJ from RosemarkieSJ from Rosemarkie

Learning to drive with Alastair was a great experience. His teaching is effective because I was challenged to figure out how to do and fix things by myself rather than just following instructions which definitely helps your quality of driving.

Thanks for all your help. You were a great instructor, especially since you managed to get me to pass 1st time. Just bought myself my first car as well! Thanks Reece

Alastair is a fantastic instructor, he is calm, patient and ensures you are condident with all aspects of the driving test. The LDC workbook was an added bonus and was great for home revision and fine tuning many aspects of driving

Thank you Alastair for teaching me to drive. I was fortunate to have you as my teacher. I booked a course with LDC as I felt that their method of teaching was suitable for a nervous, anxious, low confident 50 year old. I chose well, knowing after the 1st lesson with you as my tutor there was no reason I could not pass my test. You were always punctual, courteous, professional and very patient. You allowed me to gain confidence, despite often " flying by the seat of my pants". You encouraged, supported me tbrough all my lessons, which I came to enjoy. I can strongly recommend you and the LDC style of coaching for anyone wanting to pass their test. You are a fantastic driving instructor. The method of learning suited me, and you were always approachable with my questions as to why and how. I will not forget my " tyre thread query". Thanks again Alastair you have given me my freedom and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincere thanks and all best wishes, Catherine

We (meaning my wife) decided at 55 years of age, after being a passenger for so long, it was time for me to learn to drive. People associate learners with young people so imagine how it feels for the oldies! I decided, after research, on the LDC system as it offered a structured route with visual and written aids. I got lucky with Alastair as my instructor. His undoubted enthusiasm and constant patience meant the whole lesson was a learning experience. I can honestly say that this was the main reason I passed in such a short space of time. I wasn t an occasional driver until Easter Saturday and hadn t driven for over 20 years. True testament to Alastair s technique. First Class.

I started the 1 week LDC Driving course with some trepidation as I'm an island boy driving on the mainland. However I needn't have worried, with Alastair as my instructor, I was in excellent hands. He moulded me into a driver capable of passing my test and driving safely afterward. This is especially true in terms of my awareness and, most of all, the dreaded roundabouts.

Alastair was good to go with as he explains everything well using the LDC System. He helped through the whole process of me passing from theory to my test. I highly recommend going with him as he helped me pass first time

I would highly recommend Alastair to any learner driver, his calm and assured tutoring was priceless and it really improved my confidence on the road. He is a credit to LDC. Alastair was always punctual and made the lessons enjoyable and stress free. The progress was swift and I was able to pass in 5 months while becoming a safe and sensible driver

Alastair s endless patience, support and huge experience helped turn this stubborn pupil into a 1st time pass on less than 40hrs! Thanks for everything. I couldn't have got a better start to driving.

My name is Calum Skinner age 19. I started to drive with Alastair back in early Oct with very little experience passing my test on Jan 26th in Inverness. He was a great instructor,relaxed,confident and helpful. He was supportive through the whole process including the theory part of the test. I would highly recommend him. Thanks Alastair

With every lesson I did with Alastair I saw an improvement in my driving skills and knowledge of the road. I found his training technique very positive and calm when it s needed. I would highly recommend Alastair for people in need of driving lessons. The 41 hours I did were great value for money

I found the LDC driver training with Alastair very enjoyable, feeling confident and relaxed after a short number of lessons. He provided a good learning environment.

Testimonial from a pleased dad who'd sent his son for some intensive driving lessons in Inverness while at college here prior to his test booked over in Kyle of Lochalsh with his regular instructor but needed town experience and ironing out a few things in preparation for his test. "Hi Alastair. I just wanted to let you know that Daniel passed his driving test this afternoon and I put it down to the 4 nights of lessons so thank you very much for that. One very satisfied customer. Kenny."
