I would strongly recommend learning to drive with L-Plates and Frank Judah. I progressed at a good rate and always felt within my comfort zone. Frank always stayed calm even when I made mistakes. It was easy to plan lessons and the good part was having a lot of mocks before I took my test. This ensured that I was prepared for the test and passed first time! Tom Birch. Worthing.

My Driving experience with L Plates and Giles Blanch has been a fantastic experience as I now feel very confidant and comfortable driving on the roads. The way they have taught me has helped me so much to remember everything to its simplest form and what to do safely in different situations on the road. After learning to drive for almost a year and half with previous instructors this achievement has only been made possible through learning with Giles and L Plates as they are a great school to learn with and very easy going I would highly recommend going to learn to drive with L Plates. Ben Taylor. Crawley.

A consistently calm coach and overall nice guy! Colin Dawes is a fantastic instructor and I would recommend him to anyone. Colin regardless of the circumstances made you feel immediately at ease and was great at diverting stress away from the lessons. By the end of first lesson Colin had designed a comprehensive, tailoured plan of action that was personally suited to my needs approaching my practical. Colin was also very understanding when it came to rearranging lesson and test dates and you really get the impression he bends over backwards for all of his pupils. A top instructor, and a top bloke! Tom, Tunbridge Wells.

Learning driving with Giles was one of the best experiences of my life. He has not only helped me in preparing myself for the driving test but also for safe driving for the whole of my life. I am new in UK so don't have any idea about the driving companies operating here but i have started with L Plates and found it more then my expectations. Adnan Ijaz. Crawley.

Frank Judah was a brilliant instructor, really patient and tailored the lessons to me. I would definitely recommend learning to drive with Frank, I never thought I would be able to do it but he was amazing and I passed first time! Thank you Frank! Nicole Henman. Worthing.
16th November, 2013
I loved learning to drive with Giles Blanch. I would 100% recommend him as I felt that his teaching methods were very simple and I managed to pick up techniques quicker than before. He never lost his calm temperament and had a very optimistic and positive attitude in my driving abilities. He would instantly flag up areas of concern and look to rectify those, which showed his attentiveness to my driving. I was impressed at how easily he helped me understand how to do particular manoeuvres. He always had good advice. which if followed correctly, would always allow me to carry out any instruction successfully and with ease. He was always very clear in his communication and I always felt confident in what I needed to do. I would definitely recommend Giles. Poppy Unsworth. Crawley.

This was my third time learning to drive. Previously I had become bored or didn't get on with my instructors. L Plates however is another league. I have enjoyed every lesson! I passed my test in a month with Frank McLaren as my instructor who always left me brimming with confidence when he dropped me off. With 14 hours of lessons I managed to pass first time with only 4 minor faults - Thanks to L Plates and especially my instructor Frank McLaren. Joe Grange. Bexhill.

Frank Judah was an amazing teacher. I was one who was initially afraid of turning corners, but by the end, I was able to confidently pass my test! He was a very patient teacher - able to push me out of my comfort zone, but not go over the edge. He always had a witty joke to calm my nerves, and useful information to aid my knowledge. Of course I would recommend him, and the L-plates school, to any of my friends, and I look forward to doing the pass plus with him. George Markey. Angmering.

Just wanted to say that Colin was fantastic in teaching me to drive, being 32 yo, he really did teach an old dog new tricks.. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn. Cheers Colin…Rob Mansfield. Tunbridge Wells.

I just want to say a massive thank you to Frank Judah for helping me recently pass my driving test at the first attempt. As someone who took his first series of driving lessons 15 years ago and tried again 10 years later I was really starting to doubt whether I'd ever be able to do it. A friend of mine had recently started to learn with Frank and he gave such a good recommendation to me that I thought I'd give it one more go. Franks style of teaching really suited me, he would always encourage me to progress when I was ready to and would ask what I would want to do during any particular lesson, Frank also showed great patience with my incessant questions!! I found the progress charts within the L-Plates booklet very useful as well as it really helps you track your progress from lesson to lesson. When the big day came the nerves had really gotten hold of me, Frank helped calm me down and provided all the encouragement I needed. Following the test I was over the moon when the examiner told me the good news, to come away with no faults as well was just the icing on the cake. Thanks again Frank and I'll see you soon for the pass plus. Andy Hemsley. Worthing.

Learning with L-Plates enabled me to learn quickly and to the best of my ability. John Leeming as an instructor is excellent to work with. He is patient and allows you as the learner to keep going until you are driving both efficiently and safely and so you can complete a manoeuvre perfectly. He always listened to me first; asking before every lesson what I wanted to focus on. Overall he gave me the confidence to sit behind the wheel and drive confidently in different situations. He is a lovely guy to know and have a chat with and I can't thank him and his little KA enough for the past few months. Thank you John, hope for much more success with you and future learners for years to come. Liam Richner. Heathfield.

I'd just like to say that learning with Mark Napier has been a very enjoyable experience. Mark and I really got on well and it was a pleasure to go out for lessons with him. I'm thrilled to have passed first time, I couldn't have done it without the excellent teaching form Mark. I will recommend Mark and L-plates to anyone I know learning to drive. Thanks again. In a way I will miss learning to drive, but like everything we have to move on and take to the road alone. Regards Alastiar Farquhar. Hastings.

I learnt with Frank McLaren from L'Plates Driving School and the experience was fun and enjoyable and always made my lessons worth looking forward to, not only did he have confidence in me, but he helped me have confidence in myself! L'Plates are reliable and always work with you and your schedule, i passed first time with L'Plates thanks to the loyalty and support the instructors give you. Lisa Livingstone. Bexhill.
9th October, 2013
From the very first lesson, my instructor John Mell was professional, but friendly. Ensuring that I could always ask questions. He was always patient, especially when I asked the same things twice!
John was fantastic at making me feel confident to move onto the next part of my learning, but never rushed me, ensuring we spent enough time on each part, but also encouraging me to move forward and improve my knowledge and road experience.
After my first lesson I felt at ease, and I was sure John was the right instructor to help me pass. I would throughly recommend him, as after 2 other driving instructors, I should know!
John - Many thanks again, I looked forward to our lessons, and I'm sure future students will too. Chris Colman. Redhill.

I would like to say a huge thank you to my driving instructor Terry Bardsley for helping me pass my driving test! Terry is by far the best instructor I've had and being my fourth instructor he really made my lessons enjoyable and i felt at ease, whereas i didnt have this with previous instructors. Im so grateful to terry as passing my test really is the best feeling ever! Thank you terry for your fantastic teaching, your friendship, and most of all the laughs along the way! Im going to miss our lessons ! Natalie Mcgettrick :) Brighton.

I would like to say a big thank you to my driving instructor Frank Judah after passing my test today. I would highly recommend him to any learner drivers, especially for those lacking in confidence he is brilliant at helping you to build it up. I felt like Frank was not just teaching me to simply get through my driving test, but also to develop the skills and knowledge I needed for a lifetime of safe driving which is so important for a time when the road is potentially such a dangerous place to be, especially for inexperienced drivers. Frank is very friendly and approachable and I never felt hesitant to ask what I thought were silly questions! Thank you very much Frank. Jennifer Bacchus. Worthing.

I would highly recommend Colin Dawes to anyone learning to drive, he was incredibly patient, reliable and always helpful. He made me feel very at easy and comfortable and readily prepared me in every way. I could not have asked for a better teacher. Molly Guy. Tunbridge Wells.
28th September, 2013
Colin Dawes was such a great instructor. Having already had quite a bit practise, he gave me the opportunity to drive freely while giving me clear instructions of how to do manoeuvres and giving me great help leading up to the exam and practical. I couldn't be happier with his positive attitude to driving which helped me relax and ultimately allowed me to feel completely comfortable behind the wheel!
I also found it hugely helpful having the free theory website to revise from before the test!
Thank you Colin! Phoebe. Forest Row.

One of the first things I said to Giles was "I have to pass my test by September." That gave him about two months to get me up to standard. Having driven before wasn't much help to him as, after a two year break between lessons, I sat in the car on our first lesson and stared blankly at him.
Giles rose to the challenge wonderfully. It takes some patience to deal with a frustrated me! He knew exactly what I needed and adapted his teaching method to suit me perfectly. His easy humour and friendly, relaxed demeanour made me feel completely comfortable in my lessons with him. Despite my insistent reservations, I passed my test under his tutelage. With just 20 hours, he succeeded where a previous year of lessons had failed. It was a delight to have Giles as my instructor and I highly recommend him as a teacher to even the most dubious of drivers. Eloisa Lillywhite. Crawley

Raj Purba is a great driving instructor. He is calm, patient and full of support and encouragement. He makes driving enjoyable, by getting to know the individual pupil and having great banter with them throughout their lessons. He is very flexible with the times and is very reliable. Raj always turned a negative thing into a positive comment. Raj gave me the confidence and belief in my own driving ability. I would recommend Raj to anyone who is looking for a calm and supportive driving instructor. Thanks Raj, I have really enjoyed learning to drive with you and I am looking forward to completing my Pass Plus with you. Mhairi. Redhill.
20th September, 2013
Giles Blanch was an excellent driving instructor who taught me efficiently and helped me pass my test first time. He was always punctual and on time for my lessons and when on the odd occasion when he was delayed he would ring me to inform me. He was also reasonable with payment terms, giving me plenty of time to come up with the money I owed. Giles taught in an easy to understand manner which helped me to pick up the feel of driver much quicker than I thought. Overall I would highly recommend Giles and would like to thank him for teaching me to drive. Elliot. Burgess Hill.

I cannot start to say thank you enough to my instructor Frank McLaren, always patient, full of advice and even took two hours out every Sunday to teach me, Frank feels you with the confidence and skills needed to pass your test, which I did with zero minors, already recommended to my partner and sister and will continue to share my superb experiences of Frank and L Plates for many years to come....Thanks Frank. Stewart Holter. Bexhill.
13th September, 2013
Franks happy and friendly manner shines through in the way he teaches. His approach to teaching is passionate and he is positive in those who he teaches, which helps you as a learner to feel more confident in yourself. You feel relaxed and in no means rushed with Frank. I always looked forward to lessons with him! Thank you for all of your time and effort and for helping me to pass first time! I couldn't have done it without you! I look forward to doing Pass Plus with you in the future!
12th September, 2013
Raj was an excellent driving instructor. He was always calm and very thorough throughout my lessons. Having had a break from driving for over a year he helped me pass my test in approximately 4 months. I am so glad I had Raj as my instructor and would highly recommend him. Kirsty Vincent. Horsham.

I would like to hugely thank Frank for being such an excellent driving instructor! I heard about Frank Judah and L Plates driving school through recommendation from a friend, and I have and will continue to also recommend Frank to as many friends as possible, as he was superb. I really appreciated his calm and enjoyable approach, whilst also explaining knowledge and instructions in a very clear and concise manner. If I ever had any questions or queries, he was very quick to answer them precisely and would go over it as many times as possible, in order to make to me feel secure in what I was doing. Frank was very truthful and advisable on my development, therefore when he said he felt that I was ready to take my test I knew this was an accurate and truthful opinion. His knowledge and confidence in my driving gave me great reassurances and confidence, which led me to feel very relaxed and secure during my test which helped me greatly. Thanks once again, Faye Ralph. Sompting.

I would like to say a massive thank you to my driving instructor Frank. I passed my Driving test first time with his help. He is a great character cracking jokes all the time while going out of his way to help you in anyway he can. One of the best instructors around and couldn't have asked for more. Down to earth guy telling you as it is, just what you need from a driving instructor I think. Thanks Frank and L-Plates Charlie. Bexhill.

It was great having Raj as an driving instructor. He is easy to get along with and I passed first time with only 4 minors! I have recommended him to a few of my friends and i'm sure they will not be disappointed, as he is so good at his job. If you want to learn to drive L Plates is definitely who you should go with.

I would like to say a massive thank you to Frank Judah for being my driving instructor over the past 7 months. Learning to drive with L Plates Driving School has been an incredibly enjoyable and satisfying experience! Starting to drive was quite a daunting and nerve racking prospect for me, but as soon as I got in the car on my first lesson, Frank made me feel relaxed and welcome, and as the weeks went on, I really started to look forward to my driving lessons. Frank was very patient with me, making sure I went over things enough until I was happy and confident enough to do them on my own. He helped me progress steadily, not pushing me into anything I didn't feel comfortable with but encouraged me to move on when he thought I was ready! He often asked for my opinion about how I was driving instead of just telling me what I was doing eight and wrong which made me think deeper into how I was driving and feel it has made me a far safer driver as a result of it. Now that I have passed I am definitely considering taking the Pass Plus scheme with Frank to broaden my driving experience. I would definitely recommend Frank as a diving instructor, whether you want to pass quickly, or take your time over learning, as he is patient and will move at the pace you wish to set. I was also very impressed by his flexibility when it came to the timing of my lessons, as I often had to change times or cancel. He was always perfectly happy to change times to fit my schedule which made booking driving lessons far less stressful! Again, a big thankyou to Frank for the past few months, its been great fun and an incredibly satisfying experience. Bethany Close. Worthing.

'Wow!! What can I say, my driving experience has been a bumpy one with lots of stalling and hill starts but I got there in the end. Me and Gareth had our ups and downs with plenty of banter!!! But after about a year I managed to get my well deserved pass with only TWO minors!!! Gareth stuck by me and was a great support the whole time, always willing to answer any questions I had while on the road, he never gave up and was determined to make sure I passed before the summer. I would not hesitate to recommend Gareth and L Plates to anyone......feels weird having a pink driving licence in my purse now .... Thanks Gareth!!!!' Thanks Lillie Forder-White. Rye.

I would just like to say a big thank you to L-Plates and my instructor John Eacher for helping me pass my test this morning. I know we've both had problems over the last few months and we've missed lessons here and there, but that aside, we had a good laugh and he was a really caring and patient teacher. One I'll definitely be recommending to my brother in a few weeks' time! Cheers John and L-Plates, Joe Haffenden, Eastbourne.

Frank is an amazing driving instructor. I started by knowing nothing about driving and as soon as I started, Frank made me feel comfortable with him and driving the car, always making time for me and arriving on time for lessons. After failing my first test, I felt very demotivated but Frank inspired me to come back fighting, which lead to me passing! I'd just like to say a huge thank you for all his help. Chris. Bexhill.

When I began driving I didnt find it as natural as I first thought I would, having being in a number of car crashes in the past I soon found myself hitting a bit of a mental block and wanting to give up altogether. Gareth was supportive and caring and helped me to overcome these obstacles, his patience is a real testiment to his charecter! He never once made me feel slow or put me down, he is a fantastic instructor and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone and everyone! I have always found the L Plates Company to be very professional and polite! So thank you to everyone and thankyou especially to Gareth! Georgina Packer. Hastings.

I would like to say big thanks to my instructor John Mell for his patience, dedication and hard work. He is punctual, well behaved, soft in answering any question or doubt. At the same time I found him always alert on board. I witnessed his super skills in saving our car in dangerous situations. He never aimed at passing tests but rather stressed on learning safe driving, which is an ultimate requirement of driving lessons. I can say he has kept 'L-Plates Driving School's' standards at a very high position. Rajeev Kumar. Crawley.

I was recommended to John by my dad who knew John previously. I had been learning to drive with someone else and was getting nowhere at great cost! On my first introductory lesson I immediately felt at ease with John’s teaching style and knew immediately I had made the right decision to change instructors. Patience, dedication and kindness are John’s attributes and after a series of lessons he told me I was ready for my test.
I passed first time and was over the moon. John, you are a brilliant instructor and I am going to recommend you and L-Plates to all my friends who want to drive. Thank you for giving me such an important life skill. Kim Tozer. Horley.

Thanks for all your help L Plates. One of my friends recommended Colin to me, and it's not hard to understand why. He's a really friendly instructor, really puts you at ease with the stressful task of getting on the road. He makes everything clear and really knows what he's talking about. With his help I managed to pass first time with only two faults! I would firmly recommend Colin to anyone in need of passing their driving test. Thanks again, Sebastien. Tunbridge Wells.

I started my driving lessons in June 2012 with Mark Napier. I started off as a very nervous pupil but in to time Mark had me feeling at ease and with this, my confidence grew and grew. Mark is an extremely patient instructor and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Not only is Mark a fantastic instructor, he is a great guy too and found I got on with him very well. I actually miss my lessons now I have passed and in the near future, I will be calling Mark to teach me how to drive a manual! It took just 9 months for Mark to teach me how to drive, and passing my test was an amazing feeling! So would just like to thank Mark for being such a brilliant instructor and helping me pass my test. Couldn't of done it without him! Stevie-Leigh Conrad. Guestling.
