In the last 24 months we have experienced a dramatic increase in the number of enquiries from people who want to learn to drive with one of our highly trained driving instructors using the revolutionary LD System. Many instructors are operating waiting lists of up to six months to get started and charging premium rates for lessons. Lesson prices range from £30 to £50 per hour.

You can visit our YouTube channel The Learner Driving Centre to see how incredibly popular our training methods are, with over 150,000 subscribers and more than half a million views per month. As a result we are looking to recruit and train people to become driving instructors to satisfy the increasing demand for LDC's driving courses and lessons.
