Lauren gives driving lessons in Castleton, Rochdale, Middleton, Chadderton, Royton, Shaw and Failsworth.
“After being let down by another instructor from another company, Lauren was accommodating with all my needs for days, locations and times of lessons. Her instructions were always clear, and discussions were frequently used so that I understood areas to improve. Her friendly and patient demeanour were exactly what I needed, meaning that the stress of learning to drive never became too much. Lauren was incredibly supportive and understanding of my needs and I believe she was the key reason I passed first time! Couldn’t recommend enough!”
“In September 2018 I decided to learn to drive, to stop paying my wage to an Uber driver called Clive!
Without a second thought I rang the teacher who gave me a lesson and wasn’t a preacher.
Lauren was her name and Latics was the school with a mini for a car I knew I could go far. Lauren had trust in me and was also praising. The confidence she gave me was just amazing. Ten lessons in total that’s all I had. Lauren taught me well for an 18-year-old lad. The test day came around so quick. I past my test with only 1 hick. I would like to thank you Lauren for your fantastic skills and driving ways, learning with Lauren definitely PAYS! Thank you, so much well recommended, great instructor!”
“Just want to say a massive thank you to Lauren Crossley on helping me achieve this major goal in my life. Some may say I’m biased as she was already a best friend of mine, but I actually think that made her tougher on me as she knew how much this meant to me. However not only is she firm but she’s also fair. Listening to how she caters her lessons for every pupil when we were on our lessons was truly inspirational and she is an amazing addition to the Latics family. I wish her all the best as she continues to grow and flourish in her role with the company. All the best in the future with it (however you don’t get rid of me that easily).”
“Lauren Crossley is an excellent and friendly instructor! She was really patient and explained everything to me beforehand in a way I could easily transfer this to the practical side of driving. She made me feel very comfortable throughout my lessons, making this an enjoyable experience. Her hard work and tutoring helped me to pass my test first time. She allowed me to feel confident when driving independently and I couldn’t recommend her enough!”
“Lauren is honestly amazing at what she does, she makes you feel like you’re her only pupil because of how much time and dedication she puts into teaching you. She doesn’t use ‘textbook’ teaching styles, she got to know me and how my brain works so she could really help me progress on an individual, personal level. I was an extremely anxious driver and would often get myself in a panic but she knew how to calm me down straight away and was very patient and understanding. She always knew exactly what to say! Sometimes I thought she knew me better than I knew myself! She explains everything so clearly and professionally, not to mention she has a great memory, so she knows exactly where you’re up to what you had learned previous lessons. Lauren pushed me to better myself and my skills and pushed me to step out of my comfort zone which I had a habit of staying in. We always had a laugh on our lessons and I will genuinely miss driving with her! I would recommend her 100%, I’m so thankful and grateful to Lauren for helping me pass.”
“I can’t thank Lauren enough for all the help and advice she has given me over the past months on my driving lessons. When starting my lessons, I was a little nervous as I had never driven a car before or met my instructor! Straight away Lauren made me feel comfortable and safe and explained everything to myself clearly.
She is such a nice person and I could genuinely tell she wanted the best outcome for myself and she wanted to make sure I was a safe driver and understood everything I needed to know about being a safe driver.
She kept me on track with my driving and pushed me to achieve the goals I had set. If I had failed my theory or practical she would push me to get it booked straight away so I kept on with it as she knew I really wanted it. I would recommend Lauren to anyone she really is amazing at her job and I cannot thank her enough for the help she has given me over the past months.”
“Lauren is a fantastic instructor, when I first started my lessons I had no experience with driving what so ever, but Lauren was patient and calm with me. She went over things so much until I felt comfortable, she knew when I was nervous or overthinking situations and always stepped in and made me feel at ease. She is such a good instructor because she can read people and can tell from the pupil what type of learning is best for them and what they need to achieve the best result. I would never have passed first time if it wasn’t for Lauren and for her making me feel some comfortable driving! I will miss out lessons and our chats, she has become a friend as well as an instructor and I recommend her to anyone learning to drive! I never thought I’d pass first time, but Lauren always had faith in me and knew when I needed a kick to get my head in the game! I am very very grateful!”
“Lauren was a fantastic instructor, always had confidence in me from day one. When I made a mistake, she showed me what I did wrong and how not to make the mistake again. She was always calm and respectful. I would 1000% recommend her as an instructor. I personally would like to thank Lauren again for helping me along my journey and passing my test first time.”
“A big thank you to my instructor Lauren for helping me to pass first time! Lauren has been so helpful, she is great at explaining things, she always made sure I understood what to do and she was always ready to answer any questions I had. She knew how to make me feel at ease in the driving seat, especially when I was preparing for my test. Each lesson I kept gaining confidence, and thanks to her lessons I really enjoy driving! Thank you, Lauren!”
“I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Lauren Crossley for being so patient, understanding, having a great vibe, calm and also great company to be driving with. I will miss it! Lauren went far and beyond in helping me build my confidence on the road, learning how to drive and to pass! This made my whole driving experience amazing. I would recommend Latics to anyone! Lauren & the whole Latics Team are very professional and will do the most for you, which I am grateful for.
Thank you once again!!!”
“Thank you so much to Lauren for not only helping me pass first time but also building my confidence so I feel comfortable drive in real life!
Lauren constantly made sure not to just teach me how to pass the test, but also how to do every day driving and thanks to her, I have been able to start driving straight away.
Aside from being a fantastic instructor, with tons of patience and understanding, she is an extremely lovely person who is so easy to get on with too!
I would 100% recommend Latics to anyone learning to drive, I have been fortunate enough to meet a few of the lovely instructors and from what I have seen they are all fantastic… And of course, I 110% recommend Lauren! Thank you, Lauren!”
“I had Sanam as my first instructor, she helped me to keep motivated as she taught me how to advance with my driving. Her teaching techniques allowed me to keep focused and gave me a sense stability when recalling how to deal with certain situations. I would be lost without her patience and consistency as she continued to coach me. Sanam taught me how to drive and never gave up on me, for this I am eternally grateful.
Lauren was my second instructor, within her lessons she gave me a sense of safety. Mistakes were embraced, and she taught me how to stay calm and deal with situations. Areas I would usually struggle with, such as roundabouts, she helped me defeat. I am no longer afraid of driving and this sense of calmness gave me the confidence to continue. Lauren helped me come out of my shell as she consistently pushed me to become a better driver.
Like Sanam, Lauren never gave up on me. They continued to coach and believe in me. Sanam taught me how to drive and Lauren taught me how to access my confidence, which enabled me to be calm and comfortable in situations.
I have had the most amazing experience; I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have both Sanam and Lauren as my instructors. Thank you!”
“Thank you, Lauren, for helping me pass my test first time! Would highly recommend Lauren and Latics Driver Training to anybody wanting a welcoming environment to learn how to drive in. Lauren is very dedicated and really works hard to help you pass and become a safe driver! Friendly and fun and makes you feel comfortable during lessons.
Will definitely miss our weekly lessons, but I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, thanks Lauren!”
