The LD System is based on over 30 years of perfecting the process of learning to drive. It is designed to empower the student (i.e. the learner driver) and put them firmly at the centre of the learning process.
It enables them to decide what, where, when and how they might go about this process under your watchful eye and guidance. This is achieved by supplying the student with a workbook and accompanying DVD video programme (and/or access to the online Hub version of the LD System) with encouragement and support from you.
Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their pupils what to do, what to think and criticising every little fault they make! This approach only fosters dependency, doubt and blind obedience. This method of learning is not only slower it does little to develop safe driving attitudes. The LDC approach on the other hand does, by encouraging self-reliance, ownership and responsibility resulting in safer drivers who learn to drive far more quickly.
As a result you will boost student retention and ‘word-of-mouth’ referral business creating a secure future pipeline of demand for your services.
The LD System lessons and targets are structured in such a way as to help you match each learning challenge to the students ability which in turn enables the student to experience something called ‘optimal learning flow’ as illustrated below – when the challenge is perfectly matched to the students ability to learn.
The video below shows an example of what optimum learning flow looks like in practice. Claire has already successfully completed a straight line reverse, a reverse left round a corner and a reverse right round a corner in a quiet housing estate with Bob. This is her first trip into the outskirts of the town to complete her first Bay Park lesson.
The LD System is the new ‘client centred’ way to learn to drive. It is the first training system of its kind to meet the new Government initiative to promote client centred training to people learning to drive, except that it isn’t new to LDC, we have been operating this way for the last 20 years. This puts LDC way ahead of the game when it comes to offering modern client centred training methods ready for the new Part 3 test. The new Part 3 test will require all new driving instructors to use ‘client centred’ learning and teaching strategies like those used by LDC for over 20 years now. The LD System provides the ideal vehicle to make this happen and massively increases your chances of passing the new Part 3 first time. Below you can see the end of this Bay Park lesson.
