Recently passed with Phil McLean

“Phil created a nice learning environment!”

“I want to say thank you to my driving instructor Phil who helped me pass my driving test first time. Phil created a nice learning environment and adapted lessons to suit my needs and ability. He was very professional while also being friendly. Throughout my lessons I found that Phil helped me to progress and become more confident on the roads, challenging me in different ways at different stages. You wouldn’t go wrong choosing Phil as your instructor no matter your ability.”

Michael Seabright

“Phil is a superstar!”

“My instructor Phil is an absolutely super star he was very patient with me even though it took so many times to get my parallel parking correct. I would recommend Phil to anyone who wants to learn how to drive he is fantastic and would like to thank him for helping me achieve my goal!”

Kelly Odefa

“Phil gave me confidence “

“I had lessons with Phil McLean. They were the best! I was really nervous starting them thinking I wasn’t going to be able to drive and will fail but Phil gave me confidence and after 26 hours of lessons I passed! Phil is the best !!! Thankyou so much”

Teigan Leonard

“Phil is amazing and patient!”

“I did my driving lessons with Phil McLean and was he is faultless! Having had previous instructors, he was by far the best. Amazing and patient and had me pass first time! Couldn’t have asked for a better person to do my lessons with, he covered all bases and made sure I knew everything inside and out. Highly recommend him, lovely man!”

Melissa Mottershead

“Phil is a very laid back, professional and down to earth”

“Phil is a very laid back, professional, down to earth driving instructor. He has excellent methods of explaining how to do/approach different situations on the road, if you get anything wrong during your lessons he will make sure you get it perfect before he moves onto anything else.

He provides a relaxed atmosphere, and not only does he provide you with excellent tips for passing your test, he also provides you with a lot of knowledge for when you are out and about in your own car! I couldn’t recommend him enough! 10/10″

Andrew Southall

“Phil is a fantastic driving instructor!”


“Phil is a fantastic driving instructor who is very relaxed, friendly, polite and extremely good at his job.

He helped me pass first time with an intensive driving course without any previous lessons. Despite the horrible snow during my intensive driving course (7 hours a day driving) he didn’t cancel my lessons and teach me to be afraid of driving in the snow. Instead he showed me how to drive in the snow safely and under complete control.

Hope this is okay for your website and not too long haha.”

Ryan Mcdermott

“Phil is so professional”


“I would just like to say a big Thank You to Phil who was my driving instructor on my intensive driving course. Phil is so professional, down to Earth and easy to talk to in the car.

What I liked the best was even when I didn’t understand something Phil would go above and beyond to show me or explain how in a different way. Making sure that I fully comprehend the manoeuvre and the mechanics of the car.

I would rate Phil five stars and I would highly recommend him to anybody else who is looking to pass their test.”

Santrice Rivers

“Phil is a fantastic instructor!”


“I would just like to say how thankful I am to Phil, he gave me the confidence I needed to pass my test first time. I wouldn’t have done this without his patience and encouragement. I am so grateful and would recommend him as an instructor to anyone. Phil is a fantastic instructor who deals with nervous learners great, thanks again Phil for helping me pass and get me over my fears.”

Louise Latham

“Phil got me through the process!”


“Wow, what a guy! I’m surprised he’s got any hair left after putting up with me for the last six months! The man has the patience of a saint and after stopping and starting learning over the last ten years, Phil was the man to get me through the process. I’d had a bit of driving experience prior but with Phil’s guidance I became the most competent driver I’ve been and passed my test! I was a little bit nervous at first, being a little bit older, but he picked up on that straight away and put me at ease, never losing his cool or becoming frustrated. The best driving instructor I’ve had and a lovely gentleman to boot. If you need to learn, either on an intense course or gradually, speak to Latics (who themselves were fantastic and provide outstanding service) and request Phil McLean. Legend.”

Ashley Feest

“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!”

Alex Ross

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.”

Jenny Caton-Pike

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”

Sidra Guest

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! “
