Sarah Pickering


“I would definitely recommend Craig!”

“I have been learning to drive with Craig Dudley since early January. Craig is one of the many experienced teachers at Latics and has helped many people pass their test. His way of teaching adapts to each individual and helps you though each situation by giving the learner the trust and belief that they need.

Unlike other instructors, Craig gets you on the road as soon as possible, taking you on junctions and performing manoeuvres that are challenging and different. His knowledge of the roads and vehicles are very high and makes sure we switch up the route on each lesson.

I would definitely recommend that you learn with Latics and have Craig as your instructor as they want you to pass as much as you do!”

“Craig is a great instructor!”

“Craig is a great instructor to have as from day one he makes you feel at ease and doesn’t throw you in the deep end. He lets you go at your own pace without adding too much pressure making it easier to pick up skills.

I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to start learning how to drive and also to those looking to switch instructors.”
