“Phil is very funny and easy to get along with!”


“Class time enjoying my lessons quick, easy to learn. Also, very funny instructor easy to get on long! Grapping his knee instead of the gear stick haha, Cheers Phil.”

Jamie Derbyshire

“Phil is a genius!”


“What Can I say? The man is a genius!!! He made me feel like Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel (a safe and aware version of course). I chose to do the block booking with Phil and I’m glad I did.

Phil made me feel at ease from the minute I stepped in the car right up until the morning of my test. No matter what level you think you’re at to begin with, he will certainly get you to a standard by which it is possible to pass with ease.

I passed first time with 3 minors and I could not have done it without him.

Thank you so much Phil!”

“I am so happy that I chose Latics Driver Training for my lessons. My instructor Phil McLean was incredibly supportive and professional, helping me to pass my test the first time and teaching me to be a very safe and confident driver. Thank you so much for your help and I will recommend you to everyone.

Thanks again for all the help,
Kind regards,
Louise Harris”

Phil is very encouraging and always lets you know when you’re doing good!

“Phil has been the most fantastic instructor, he has the patience of a saint and tailors the way he teaches each manoeuvre to suit your style of driving. Phil is very encouraging and always lets you know when you’re doing good, and always makes sure you are comfortable with the level and complexity of driving.”

Phil McLean is an Amazing Instructor!

Sidra Guest“I would recommend Latics to everyone, my instructor was Phil McLean. From the first lesson he made me feel very comfortable, I wasn’t quite confident in myself at driving but he made me feel that I could do it and taught me loads of things, he was calm with me and very patient. His approach to me was kind and friendly he made me feel good when I was driving and appraised me. I had a previous instructor with a different company but he was nothing like Phil, I would 100% recommend Phil, without him I wouldn’t of past. I enjoyed all the lessons with him and will miss him, whoever gets you next is going to be one very happy person, you are an AMAZING Instructor…. Thank you sooo much”

I passed my test first time and I couldn’t have done it without Phil!

“He was really good and put up with my moaning and saying I can’t do it! I would recommend Phil to everyone! He takes time to teach you and sometimes it didn’t feel like a driving lesson. Thank you very Much Phil for everything! ”
