“Lee explained everything to me!”

“I had my driving lessons with Lee Napier, firstly, I would like to say a massive thank you to Lee for putting up with me! From my very first lesson he put me at ease and calmed my nervous through the whole process. He explained everything to me even if it took a few times for it to go in! I passed first time with Lee. His skills, not just driving, but his approach and customer service is second to none. Lee is very happy, friendly and a very supportive instructor. I highly recommend him as a driving instructor. A massive thank you again Lee! “

“I started my driving lesson in Feb and I’ve now passed in June thanks to my instructor Lee Napier who was very patient with me, fantastic instructor I would recommend him to anyone thank you very much Latics for putting me forward to him. “

Laura Johnson


“I am over the moon to have passed first time”

“I couldn’t have done it without Lee! The amount of help and guidance I have had off him is beyond me and I can’t thank him enough. Lee is such a hard working instructor and he is the best at his job! I had good laughs with Lee and he is so very friendly, thoughtful and funny. Would recommend him to anybody and definitely people who are nervous as he puts you at ease. Definitely going to miss my lessons.”

“I couldn’t have had a better instructor than Lee!”

“I am glad I switched to Latics Driver Training having passed my test. The only regret after my experience with Latics is not having done so a lot sooner than I did.

Lee was well disposed towards my driving ability/experience (plenty of nerves and hysterics included!). He painstakingly explained everything, answered my infinite questions and was always positive despite my setbacks. As a result, I made plenty of progress and that in turn boosted my confidence to the point of actually enjoying driving.

Lee was always reliable, easily accessible and very accommodating when it came to booking/rescheduling lessons (for which he was constantly punctual).

Based on my experience, I highly recommend Lee as I could not have had a better instructor!

“A massive thank you to Lee.”

“I had been with other companies in the past and Latics really topped them all. From speaking to Lisa the Office Manager over the phone she set me at ease and  helped me get an intensive course as soon as possible, she is extremely friendly and helpful! Lee is an amazing instructor, so professional, encouraging, informative and calm. I always looked forward to my lessons, and we had full days doing 6 hours, but he kept my moral up and kept me focussed. I really liked the progress sheet at the end of the lessons to discuss your strengths and things to improve on with the next lesson plan; which kept me informed on the progress I was making. I am so pleased I went with Lee, there was so much to take in on the intensive course but Lee covered it all and I really felt prepared for taking my test. A massive thank you!”

A massive thank you to Latics also, everything was very well organised and professional, and I felt the intensive course was amazing! I would just like to add some feedback about the intensive course, I found it a great value for money, I didn’t feel I needed more lessons I thought I had learnt everything I could within the hours I was allocated and felt confident at driving. I would however say that the days are very long and I think some people may find this course tiring if their concentration levels are low, or they tire easily. I felt OK with the long days, although near to the end of the week I was feeling a bit tired, I would just say to let people know what they are in for and if they have good concentration levels when they enquire about it. Its amazing really I’ve done my driving in less than a month and have a car myself! i will recommend anyone wanting to learn to drive to Latics!”

“Lee from day one put my nerves at ease and gave me confidence in myself.”

“I would like to provide feedback regarding my instructor Lee Napier. At 30 years old I thought that I would never pass my test, I had 3 previous instructors and never felt confident in myself and always gave up. Lee from day one put my nerves at ease and gave me confidence in myself. Finally I have passed my test first time and its all thanks to Lee and his teaching style. He always ensures he points out all positives.”

Hayley Kennedy

“My instructor Lee Napier was great to work with!”

“When I started my lessons I didn’t expect to pass within the time I did. My instructor Lee Napier was great to work with and really easy to get on with, even though he is a Manchester City supporter! I was really nervous but Lee was really helpful and always gave advice and made time to work on the areas I struggled with. At the end of every lesson we looked at areas for development and planned the following lessons. Lee was really flexible with lessons and would fit me in if I felt I needed another lesson, this was good as it would help with the nerves especially near the test date. Even during the theory Lee offered support if needed, good advice and was always willing to answer any questions whether it be a text or during a lesson. I don’t think I could have asked for a better instructor, Lee is a really down to earth and chilled out person and I think that’s really important as it makes you feel less anxious and more importantly enjoy your lessons. Thanks again Lee!”

“Lee Napier is a Top Instructor!”

“I recently passed with Lee Napier, I had a great experience! He kept me calm all the time and believed that I could do it! Passing my test was one of the best things I’ve done and I couldn’t have done it without him. Top instructor!”

Louise Hicks

“The best company to learn with!”

“I would like to start by thanking Latics for helping me to pass my driving test first time! My instructor Lee Napier was brilliant to work with and was extremely patient in areas that I struggled with. He sat down with me at the end of a lesson, even if it was eating into his own evening as my lessons were always quite late because of my work and went through good and bad points of the lesson and gave constructive positive feedback on how I could improve. He accommodated the late lessons and always turned up with a great attitude which helped me forget about nerves on the road and focus on what I was doing, for that I was extremely grateful as it really made a big difference. I had used another driving school briefly and found them really difficult to work with, the difference between them and the staff at Latics as well as the professionalism shown from the management was fantastic. I was even supported through my theory test with a great online tool they gave me access to. I have since recommended Lee personally to a friend of mine as well as my brother to get them what I consider to be the best person and company to learn with. Thanks again Lee for all your help mate I couldn’t have done it without you, although I will probably be coming to do the pass plus with you soon anyway. All the best for you and your family for the future and keep up the great work!”

Chris Toon

“I’d just like to say that Latics are awesome!”

“I was told to use Lee Napier off of my brother who passed with him months earlier so I did. As I had never drove before he somehow escalated my confidence within 2 lessons and I was on the road. He made the goings on of the road understandable and gave me time to grasp each aspect of motoring. I would recommend Lee to anybody thinking of learning as he got me through my test first time with ease! He is also very good on the pass plus side too, now I have the confidence to hit the motorway whenever I like with no worries. GO LATICS!”

Warren Trennery

“Lee is an amazing instructor!”

“I took my driving lesson with Lee Napier he was so helpful from them moment I enquired about my lesson, I was scared and kept putting it off, after talking to Lee on the phone he was very helpful, he made me feel more relaxed about doing my driving so I booked my lessons. While doing my lesson he helped with my confidence loads he made me feel at home when I was driving, he made my experience more relaxed and enjoyable even when I made mistakes he helped to keep me calm and my confidence up. He would explain where I was going wrong and helped me. I took my test a few times and while I failed a few I got really down hearted and felt like I should give up and doubted myself a lot and lost a lot of confidence. Lee helped me to get myself back on track and gave me that confidence to carry on and push on for something I really wanted I then went on to pass my test. Lee is an amazing instructor and if it wasn’t for Lee I would have given up even though I wanted it so badly, I am soooooo grateful to him for this and would like to say a massive thank u. He was also very helpful with working round my hours in work as I work shift.”

“I would like to thank my instructor Lee Napier”

“Throughout my time learning with Latics he’s been the most supportive instructor I could have asked for, so glad I didn’t learn with anybody else. He’s made me a confident and comfortable driver. Definitely a pleasure.”

Emma Cattlin

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Lee Napier!”

“Thanks to Lee I passed first time. I am a quiet nervous person and found Lee very easy going and understanding. He explained things in terminology I could understand. Thank you again for your time and confidence. I can now continue in my chosen career path.”

“I would just like to say how happy I am for passing my driving test with Latics Driver Training. I never ever in a million years thought I could do it. Thanks so much Lee (Napier) for putting up with me, I was so clueless on the road, but when you explained things to me I understood so clearly. You are so calm and patient and a fantastic instructor; keep up the good work! “
