“Glyn is a great driving instructor!”

“Glyn is a great driving instructor who really pushes you to do your best, passed 1st time and I really recommend him for anyone!”

Caitlyn Leach


“Glyn is always reassuring!”

“I am nominating Glyn for best instructor because, Glyn gave me the time and patience needed to learn how to be a safe and sensible driver, he taught me not only the dos and don’ts but un written rules of the road. He was always reassuring and always explaining how and why certain tasks are done making my learning more well-rounded. He was never flustered or worked up no matter how many mistakes I made. I guess that’s because he’s watched Oldham play too much he’s learnt not to get worked up anymore! Without Glyn I wouldn’t have come close to passing both my theory and practical first time.”

“Glyn made me feel at ease”

“I owe a huge thank you to Glyn Crossley for helping me pass my driving test. When I first got into his car I had never been in the driver’s seat before and I was really nervous, but he made me feel at ease and really comfortable at once. He’s friendly and chats during the lessons, which made me relax a bit more that I usually would have. I was quite a nervous learner but his reassurance helped me realise that I don’t need to be nervous and I have now turned into a more confident driver. He always asked me if I felt there was anything I thought I needed to work on more at the beginning of each lesson, and then we concentrated on the things I felt weakest at. He taught me all the skills I will need on the road and more, so I would definitely recommend Glyn for anyone whether you have had any driving experience or not!”

Amy Johnson

“Glyn is so experienced and calming”

“I chose Glyn as my driving instructor as he had taught a lot of my brother’s friends and they had really good things to say about him, and it turned out he was the best! No matter what situation I ended up in he never got annoyed or short tempered with me, I felt confident on the road with him and he taught me some really useful tips on all different things, I couldn’t off asked for a nicer person to learn with from day one, he’s so experienced and calming, I would recommend him a 1000 times! You will pass that’s for sure :)”

“Glyn is a charming and very friendly man!”

“My grandad’s friend is a driving examiner and she highly recommended Glyn for my driving lessons, and I am really glad she did. Every Wednesday I couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel and have my lessons with Glyn, he was a charming and very friendly man who made me feel comfortable and at ease when driving. If I made a mistake he would calmly ask me to pull over and he would help correct me, there was no raising of voices or awkwardness whatsoever, it was just a calm and professional manner, but at the same time we could have a laugh about situations and friendly conversations. It has been a joy to have been taught by him and I would like to thank him for helping me pass my exams and hope he has many more successful passes with his other students.”

“Glyn always made me feel confident!”

“I would like to thank Glyn Crossley for helping me pass my driving test first time. He always made me feel confident and calm, he was patient and whenever I had any worries or concerns he would reassure me. I will be recommending Latics and Glyn to anyone who asks, he is a brilliant instructor.”

“Glyn was the perfect instructor for me”

“As I started with very little driving experience and extremely bad nerves, Glyn was the perfect instructor for me. After a bad experience with another driving company I was very edgy about starting again. From lesson one Glyn showed nothing but patience and skill when teaching me to drive. He had a great sense of humour and was very easy to get along with which made each lesson feel comfortable. When it came to my test I felt safe and confident. Glyn was very reassuring and helped me to control my nerves. I passed first time with only three minors. I have been driving for a week now and I can honestly say its life changing. I couldn’t have done it without the best instructor ever. Thank you Latics! Truly great teacher.”

“Glyn is extremely patient and easy going!”

“I passed my test a couple of months ago with Glyn and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Glyn is extremely patient and easy going and helped me to build up my confidence whilst driving as I was quite nervous when I started to learn to drive. Glyn has a unique teaching style and he allowed me to build up my confidence on a variety of roads and routes and he has a genuine interest in teaching people to be good drivers rather than just getting them through their test which was very important to me. He went over things at the end of lessons that I’d struggled with to ensure that I understood it which was incredibly helpful to me. I thoroughly enjoyed and looked forward to all of my lessons and I now love driving and will definitely recommend Glyn and Latics to all of my friends who want to learn the drive! :)”

“I would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to LATICS but most of all Glyn for being the best!”

“He is selfless, patient and understanding as an instructor. I passed today first time, and would not have been able to do it without Glyn. I had an instructor before Glyn who ruined my confidence and Glyn was outstanding at bringing it back. Thank you so much Glyn.”

“Glyn has a great teaching style!”

“I had been taking driving lessons for over a year with various other instructors and didn’t feel like they pushed me or prepared me to pass my test. After taking a few lessons with Glyn before my test I felt a lot more confident that I would pass and fully prepared. He has a great teaching style, he is very calm, but also gives constructive feedback at the end of the lesson. This is exactly what I needed.”

Jessica Stott

“I passed first time after just 12 driving lessons with Glyn”

“I passed first time with Glyn after having just 12 driving lessons. Glyn is very calm and friendly and teaches in a way that is second to none. I highly recommend Latics Driver Training as it is a well-established driving school with competitive prices and in particular, Glyn – who kept me at ease throughout and gave me the skills and knowledge to pass both my theory and practical tests first time. Thanks a million!”
