Phil is an absolutely amazing instructor and has been nothing but supportive since the very start. He makes sure you feel comfortable and confident from your very first lesson. Truly couldn’t recommend an instructor anymore if I tried! I am so grateful to have been recommended him by two of my close friends. He takes the time to acknowledge your driving style and teaches based on how you learn! He is the best! Thank you so much 😄
1st time Pass
I’ve had a few other driving instructors but never lasted more than a month with them. I went to Phil as a nervous and unconfident driver but within the matter of a few lessons with Phil everything changed. All done at my pace but always encouraged positively to go a bit further out of my comfort zone. I passed my test first time with only 4 minors. Such an amazing driving instructor and couldn’t recommend him enough. Thanks Phil 😁👍🏼
1st time pass…. 0 Faults!!
Phil is a fantastic driving instructor. He helped me pass my test first time and his style of teaching is just amazing. He is a very laid back teacher who understands that people make mistakes and reassures the fact that it is okay to do so. The LDC resources provided by Phil are a massive help to passing both the theory and the practical test as they are very easily accessible with the LDC app as well as the LDC workbook provided. Phil often references the workbook when learning new things which is a great help as it can allow you to keep up with and visualise different situations before tackling them out on the road. Overall I couldn’t have asked for a better driving instructor and would highly recommend him for anyone hoping to start driving.
We never give up!!
Thank you so much Phil honestly couldn't have done it without you you've gone above and beyond for me from start to finish and i will always be eternally grateful i suffer with really bad anxiety and Phil was so patient and understanding he never gave up on me even when i almost did couldn't recommend Phil enough incredible instructor amazing human being.

Phil is a fantastic instructor, I couldn't recommend him enough to anyone who wants to learn to drive! He Is a very friendly and patient guy and made me feel safe and comfortable behind the wheel! Each and every lesson Phil goes to all lengths to ensure his pupils get what they can out of the lesson - Phil is not just a teacher while you're on a lesson he is always available outside of lessons for advise and reassurance. He explains things clearly and eases the student under stressful situations. With Phils amazing teaching ability along with the LDC workbook and app which helped me pass my theory test; I managed to pass my practical driving test first time under some pretty stressful situations. Thank you for everything Phil 🚙
Happy Parents too
Would most definitely recommend Phil. He has successfully taught and got both our daughters through their driving tests. He is a pleasure do deal with, communication has been excellent all the way through. The girls have thoroughly enjoyed their learning to drive journey. Thank you Phil.
I would fully recommend anyone to take lessons with Phil. Your provided the LDC workbook that really helps he is just great person to learn from really take his time and listens to what you want to do or learn on the day! Really help my through everything! I always looked forward to our chats!
Can't thank Phil enough for helping me pass my driving test. I walked into the test centre knowing I was going to pass and that is because of Phil! I had been with instructors before and none have been as calm and patient as what Phil was. Our lessons were something I would look forward to in my week. It was great having my lessons on the same day & time each week, but even when a day needed to be changed Phil was always accommodating. Before starting my lessons with Phil I would have laughed if someone told me i would only get 2 minors on my test and have as much confidence as I do now driving. Thank you mate 🚗
Passed 1st Time
Phil is absolutely amazing and I can’t recommend enough, so patient and reassuring. Goes above and beyond to make sure you are where you need to be with theory test / revision and practical tests. Even throughout lockdown I was constantly kept in the loop. After 2 cancelled tests due to COVID-19 I have finally passed first time !!!!
Passed 1st Time
Phil is a really great instructor very much recommend is very calm in the car and helps make you feel confident when learning to drive. The LDC app also helped me pass my theory as it has everything on there to help revise. Overall great instructor thanks for helping me pass first time😁🚗!!
Passed 1st Time
Absolutely amazing instructor l, can’t recommend enough! Not only is his teaching top tier but he is also a friendly, patient instructor which makes each lesson comfortable. Despite the circumstances of a long Covid-19 break, each lesson back has still been better and better resulting in a 1st time pass today with 1 minor. Outside the car, Phil still manages to be helpful with the great LDC learning website and is always responsive and helpful replying if you’re stuck with anything👍
Passed 1st Time
Highly recommend Phil as a driving instructor. He is very reliable and patient. He has helped my confidence grow behind the wheel and this has helped me to pass first time!! The LDC workbook and online hub which is included when signing up is one of the main reasons why I learnt stuff quickly after I was taught them in the lessons as well as independent time and this helped me learn stuff I wasn't too sure on. I wouldn't of gone with any other instructor!

I just want to say a big thank you to LDC Driving School - Phil Coleman for helping me pass my driving test. Phil is a calm, genuine and polite person who always asked my opinion on what I needed to work on. I highly recommend anyone who is learning to drive to go with Phil and you will pass in no time!
Phil’s a brilliant instructor and a great bloke, he’s always reliable and wants what’s best for his students. He’s quick to answer any queries and flexible. He’s got a calm and patient demeanour which allows students to relax and focus on their driving and of course very safety conscious. I would 100% recommend him to anyone who is looking to start driving.
I’d 100% recommend Phil, he’s a great instructor, he’s friendly and very reliable. If I ever had to cancel a lesson he’d always try his best to fit me in so I didn’t miss out. I learnt so much and my lessons were never boring as I was always learning something different. He was easy to get in touch with and always willing to answer any of my questions.
Thanks Phil in all your support to help Elin pass first time. The support shown included never letting her down, always being on-time, good communication if needed to change lesson times and being flexible if Elin needed to change. Phil was always clear in his teaching and always ensured that Elin enjoyed her lessons. Thanks Phil and keep up the good work.
I can't recommend Phil highly enough - a really great guy and a great instructor - very clam and laid back approach, highly skilled and knowledgeable about all aspects of driving. If you're learning in the Chester area, give him a shout as you won't find better. (Thanks again Phil!)
Would highly recommend Phil as a driving instructor! I had lessons back in 2014 and failed my test. This knocked my confidence massively and I was put off taking anymore lessons. I started back up with Phil in November had 2 hour lessons once a week, and passed for the first time since starting again. From the start Phil made me feel relaxed and helped build my confidence on the road, I was able to challenge myself and each lesson was based on what I wanted to do, which was great as there was no time/lessons wasted on things I already felt confident in! Thanks again for everything Phil!
1st Time Pass
Absolutely amazing instructor. I would definitely recommend Phil. Always bases the lessons on what you feel needs improving. Always punctual and very reliable. Helped me pass my test first time today. Cheers Phil 👍🏼
1st time pass
An absolutely brilliant instructor, I'd recommend Phil to anyone at any stage of learning to drive. Having had lessons years ago elsewhere, hating them, and being nervous starting up again, Phil immediately put me to ease and kept that dread away. He was patient and confident in teaching, punctual, and really working with the bits that I needed to focus on, ensuring I knew we had a plan throughout. Having passed a few months back now, he really prepared me for the real world driving experience as well, not just the test routes. Much appreciated, Phil!
Phil is THE best driving instructor I've ever had. I started with a lot of nerves about certain aspects of driving (especially manoeuvres), but Phil put me at ease immediately with his fun, relaxed, professional and engaging way of teaching. He helps you become confident by involving you in what you want to do/learn rather than just telling you what to do. He made every lesson enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone learning to drive! Thank you Phil - you're a star.
Passed 1st Time
Absolutely over the moon to have passed my driving test, and honestly could not have asked for a better instructor to have done it with! Phil made me feel completely at ease during our lessons together, which contributed loads to helping me become more comfortable behind the wheel. Each lesson was based on what I wanted to do and how I felt I needed to improve, all criticism given was done in a healthy positive way, only being given in a manor of which I knew that next time I would get it right. Upon any manoeuvre Phil would be sure to ask if I wanted him to talk me through it or if I wanted to just give it a go myself providing I was confident enough.
Can't thank Phil enough after recently passing my test, I owe my success to all his patience and clarity on any confusing topics. During the lessons he helped to build my confidence and was always very flexible, accommodating and professional.
