Reviews for Lilliput Driver Training
If you’re looking for a driving school that is honest, reliable, excellent value for money, fun, highly educational and an instructor that goes above and beyond – this is the school for you.
Dale is an excellent instructor. He explains things in a simple and clear way. Dale is extremely patient and answered all the questions I had, even ones I had already asked nine times! Dale has a great personality which helps to make you feel comfortable. This also sets a comfortable atmosphere to have a laugh and learn at the same time! Dale has a way of making you realise your full potential and boosts your confidence.
I passed (C1) first time with 0 minors thanks to Dales dedication to my course.
Fantastic C1 Driving Instructor
Dale is a brilliant driving instructor, and has the patience of a saint.
I arrived on my first day and I automatically said there is no way I can drive this van,
Well I did and I passed 🙂
Dale made me feel at ease and by the end confident.
Dale has a very good approach keeps you calm and encourages you to work through your fears (mine being hills)
Would highly recommend
Martin was very good with me, I recently failed my first attempt with a different company and all confidence was gone!! Within minutes of arriving for my first day they made me feel relaxed and at ease. They talked through my failures but from the off set they sat back and guided through hour by hour slowly building my confidence back up.
The next day I went into the test feeling relaxed and this helped massively. I passed and that was down to the training and the patience they provided. I can’t thank them enough.
I will highly recommend Lilliput driving school and of I lose confidence in driving a C1 vehicle, I would certainly be coming back to get a few hours.
Thank you Dale and Martin, you two are the best!
Dale really went the extra mile (pun intended) for me.
Able to facilitate my training and test at very late notice (after reworking his entire schedule) and gave me all the skills I needed to pass.
All of his teaching was clear and relatable and the vehicle great to drive and great practice as it was very similar to the ones I’ll be driving in my job.
Friendly, engaging and competitively priced.
Great driving instructor
Dale is a great instructor with lots of patience! I felt at ease and learnt so much in the 3 days. Dale talks you through everything you need to know as you go. On test day he put me at ease by giving me all the information I needed before the test. Happy to have passed first time! Thanks Dale, I would throughly recommend you to anyone who needs their C1 licence.
Dale goes above and beyond
Dale offers a personal centred approach to overcome areas of concern and does this with the patience of a saint. He’ll guide you through with excellent mentoring and coaching on areas until you feel confident on all aspects required for the C1 test.
Dale has a wealth of life experience and has a very likeable personality. His humour and calm temperament provides a comfortable and effective learning environment that will put you at ease but he’ll keep you on your toes to not just pass but to become a better and safer driver.
Dale provides a backdrop of becoming a high quality and competent driver and an opportunity to look back with fondness that learning to drive a C1 category vehicle was great fun.
Behind every good professional is a good teacher. Thank you for a memorable and enjoyable chapter whilst acquiring a C1 licence. James
Top bloke, top instructor!
Dale was fantastic, he included everything you need to pass! The man knows all the slips and trips you could make and gives you everything you need. An intense 2 day course followed by the test but Dale gives you so much nerves were not a factor!👍👍👍
Martin was a fantastic instructor, he eventually got me out of 30 years of bad habits & converted me from 20 years of driving on the continent.
Dale was very professional & had organised my lessons including being picked up & dropped off daily & very kindly quickly organised a retesting inside of the same week.
GUYS , you were awesome, if I have to do any more driving exams , I will be coming back to the UK too do it with you.
Thanks for all your time & patience.
Thumbs up for Martin at Lilliput Driving School
Thank you to Martin at Lilliput Driving School. Outstanding first class service!
I was in need of a two day course and test for my C1 at short notice. I work for Openreach and live in Birmingham…I needed a test ASAP to line up with an IPAF course at work for a platform/hoist and was unable to get a test in and around the Bham area so travelled to Poole to Lilliput Driving School.
Martin was professional and thorough and was happy to go over things again again on points I wasn’t quite clear on. Lots of banter and laughs along the way.I was nervous before the test and he kept my head straight with regular breaks and full logical explanations as to why we carry out certain manoeuvres on the open road.
Vehicle was lovely to drive, was clean and a perfect test vehicle!
I can’t recommend him enough!
I would recommend Lilliput Driving School to anyone!
An Amazing Week!
Thank you Dale and Martin for such a fun week learning to drive with you! I was so nervous and you made the process so stress free. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a C1 quickly and at a fantastic price!!
Let’s be honest, we all feel nervous driving. Somehow dale makes you feel at ease and everything falls into place. I highly recommend him over other driving schools in the south, he’s better value for money and a better bloke in general!
I would highly recommend this company, professional yet friendly and reassuring.
I manage to book and complete my course within short notice.
I completed the 16h course which was recommended to me and sure enough I passed first time.
Martin and Dale are both excellent instructors, not only did they teach me they helped me develop my confidence.
I am a newly qualified paramedic and will definitely be recommending Lilliput Driving School to all my colleagues!
Thank you Martin and Dale for working through a difficult time to ensure the country has key workers!
Dale and Martin were friendly, professional and extremely helpful through the process. Dale was flexible and approachable working with me to solve issues.
Martin’s instruction was first rate, clear and friendly guidance rather than criticism
Both genuinely nice guys – you won’t find a better price, would recommend to anyone who needs this training without hesitation!!
I had the 4 day course with test booked in the afternoon do the 4th day! Passed first time. Had the pleasure of having both Dale and Martin train me and they were both fantastic. Would recommend to anyone looking to gain their C1 qualification. Thank you both again, I definitely couldn’t of done it without you!
Incredibly professional but friendly
I took my exam a few months back with Dale here at Lilliput driving school. Its important to note I failed the first time for a miss calculation that was ENTIRELY my fault. Dale took this mistake and transformed it back into a strength and I passed second time. He is a incredibly professional but friendly person whom puts you at ease straight away. if I ever need any other certificates for sure I’m going to Dale.
I am 21 – I have now been accepted as a Apprentice Emergency Medical tech. ONE of the factors that contributed to this was 100% the C1 and the fact of the matter is I’m not just “passed” and ok at driving them. I feel confident to do so and feel I’m capable and that is ALL down to Dale.
In terms of what this course provider is worth its 10/10 from me. he’s not going to just teach you how to pass he will teach you how to drive these things well and with confidence moving forward into the EMS.
