Once again - thanks for everything Mac. Really appreciate it and would never have had a chance if it wasn’t for your patience and breakdown of manoeuvres. Brilliant instructor and will definitely be recommending you to any relatives or friends in the future. Great feedback from a great pupil. Ciaran was able to work on his driving using the LD system from day one and found with ease the books, online videos and also the patience to work out how to achieve the end results. A great result today with a first time pass, with a few driving faults. Take care on the roads and good luck with University and all that life has to offer. Bravo Zulu

I would like to say huge thanks to my instructor Mac who is the best instructor what I have, he gives you confidence, knowledge and all support to pass the test. I recommend Mac to everyone he is super best. It was so nice to teach Inga and see her pass with 2 minor faults. Having the client centred learning approach gave me the knowledge to underpin Inga's already excellent driving skills into a way in which she was able to see herself passing, having failed with three other instructors. A fantastic pupil and it all came down to her special driving shoes. Take care on the roads and Bravo Zulu.

Mac made me comfortable to come into the car and didn't judge ever when I wasn't driving to the best I could. Mac always helped me and talked me through everything and made sure I was safe and made sure I knew if I done something wrong I was able to rectify the fault in order for me to learn from it. The client centre learning technique allowed me to learn from the mistakes. The way in which Mac teaches allows the driving to be fun in a way which helped me a lot! Thank you again for getting me to pass and would recommend Mac to everyone!! A great review from Malcolm and and even better result this afternoon in Arbroath. It was the second test for Malcolm who was able to review his previous test faults, learning and preventing them from reoccurring. A great pupil to teach. Many congratulations and be safe on the roads when you finally get your new car. Bravo Zulu.

Scott WatsonScott Watson
Finally passed Hooray!!!
Only gone and passed my driving test, just wanted to take the time to say thank you to Mac for being so patient and understanding and encouraged me right from the 1st lesson. A nice and genuine instructor who kept me motivated and relaxed, when I was getting stressed out, and that was often. I would highly recommenced Mac to anyone who is looking to drive , "HE'S THE MAN". Thanks you Mac and see you on the road..... Scott was a great pupil to teach, who initially feared driving again after taking 6 months off, and the uphill struggle seemed out of reach on several occasions to get ready for test day. Its such a pleasure to watch a pupil grow each lesson and putting all the techniques into practice when it counts on test day. Good luck for the future Scott and safe driving.
