Average Rating: 5.0 stars (based on 119 ratings)


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!!

Cheers guys!



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.

Met Dale for 2 day course after been let down by another course. Best decision I ever made. Dale was great and understanding has such a passion for his work. Such a funny two days and had lots of patience.

Travelled up from London just to see him. Would recommend coming from all over just to do a course with him.

Passed first time 1 driver fault.

Passed first time!

During my 3 day course with Lilliput driving, I had the pleasure of meeting Dale and Martin, I normally drive my little Fiesta so didn’t hold out much hope of actually passing this test, let alone first time! But I did!! The guys are super friendly and put you at ease straight away. They are happy to go over the same thing a million times if you feel your struggling, without getting angry or annoyed! Thanks so much, can’t recommend you enough!

Exactly what you need!

Can’t rate Dale high enough. He immediately makes you feel comfortable, puts you at ease and explains things in a way that you can understand. You can chat with him, have a laugh and feel totally relaxed. Not like the old fashioned instructors, that sat in silence and made everything awkward. Dale will have you achieving what you thought impossible, in hours. He teachers you exactly what you need to pass your test, no extra fuss and nothing left out. Dale has the patience of a saint, though he will tell you straight. Great guy, thank you Dale, it was a pleasure to meet you.
Take the course with Dale, if its what you need, he will get you through and you will do it, having fun and feeling relaxed.

Amazing value for money

Absolutely top class instruction from Dale. It is clear he has a passion for his job. Patient, clear and very friendly, I wouldn’t be able to recommend Lilliput highly enough. Amazing value for money, especially after being quoted nearly double elsewhere. If you live anywhere along the south central coastline (Dorset, Hants, Wilts) I would really consider using Dale, even if you have to drive a little way. I travelled from the New Forest and it is definitely worth the time. If you are doing your C1 for a career in the ambulance service, Dale is your man. His previously frontline experience is really helpful when teaching and also makes for some humorous stories along the way!
I passed first time, I’m confident to say that’s because of the 5* tuition pre test, that I received here.

Absolutely brilliant driving school. Dale is a great instructor he made me feel very comfortable throughout my time training with him and made sure I was confident with every part of the test before taking it. I can’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks Dale!

Luke Hopkins

I passed first time with Dale. He is such an easy going bloke and puts you at total ease. He specifically tailors his C1 training to those who are aiming to join the ambulance service, being ex ambulance service himself. Obviously he caters to anyone wanting to take their C1 test, though. I couldn’t recommend him more! And his prices are the best around!

I couldn’t of asked for a better mentor

I’m really glad I went with Lilliput driving school for my C1, Dale is a really down to earth guy who was patient with me and taught me to a excellent standard of driving. I was very nervous but he put me at ease, I couldn’t of asked for a better mentor.

Great mentoring!

I recently undertook my C1 license with Dale, I opted for the 10 hour course and felt that the content was well focussed on the areas in which I needed to brush up on.

Dale was patient and informative, I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone wanting this license.

You will not get a better price than this locally either!

Thanks Dale!

Paul Darlaston

The best C1 instructor around.

I cannot recommend Dale enough. Right from the start he put you at ease with the whole process as it can be quite scary. He was very knowledgeable and had the best set up for teaching you every aspect of the C1 test – especially the reverse exercise. You will have the most enjoyable few days learning with him and will feel as confident as you can leading up to the test as you would have gone over everything. To top it off if you have any questions about the ambulance service he will most likely know the answer. Thank you again Dale! 👏


A1 training at Lilliput driving school

I’ve recently obtained my C1 driving license after a friend within the ambulance service recommended Dale. I was not disappointed, the service was second to none and miles ahead of similar companies in terms of affordability. The lessons were very informative and professional and knowing that Dale has many years experience within the ambulance service was a huge bonus. I thoroughly enjoyed my 5 day course and can only put passing first time down to nothing more than Dale’s talent at teaching. I shall be passing on Dale’s details to anyone looking at doing their C1. Thanks again for all your support.


5* driving courses

I have recently obtained my C1 licence with Dale at Lilliput driving school after recommendation through colleagues within the Ambulance Service. I cannot thank Dale enough for his amazing patience, professionalism and extremely supportive training. The knowledge that Dale holds is second to none, a wealth of experience and skills enabling me to pass the C1 practical. I have to say that Dale also provided me with understanding of the roles I am now applying for. I have passed your details to everyone I know requiring this type of training and will continue to do so. Thanks again for everything.


Great value and great training!

After being recommended by a friend I approached Dale to obtain my C1 Licence before starting my new role in the Ambulance service. From the first time I rang Dale he was very helpful and friendly and gave me good advice on which course to take. I found Dale’s teaching very good and thoroughly enjoyed the whole course, also a great location to do the course down in Poole. I found Dale very good value for money and I achieved my aim of gaining my C1 licence. Dale used to work for the Ambulance service and I found his knowledge of the service and different job roles invaluable. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to gain their C1 licence!
