Hello, I’m Jim Lucas, your local LDC driving instructor, DBS checked and a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) approved to give driving tuition. As well as teaching in cars I've been a motorcycle instructor for over a decade and have been lucky enough to help hundreds of people gain their licence and freedom on the road. I take great pride in coaching my customers through their driver and rider learning, providing an engaging client centred environment in a calm, fun, friendly and professional manner.
I live locally in Fleet and have a Daughter who’s not quite driving age yet, she’s a fantastic dancer/actor/singer and likes to spend time with me and my credit card at the mall!
I served in the Royal Navy as a Marine Engineer and have worked in Aerospace and Automotive engineering, however, my passion has always been helping people learn road craft and gain their skills for a lifetime of safe driving and riding. In my spare time I volunteer as a motorcycle National Observer with the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) and am an Advanced Motorcycle Tutor with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). I also hold the IAM Masters (Distinction) (Car), which is considered one of the highest civilian driving accomplishments in the UK. When I’m not coaching or providing advanced training I enjoy touring France on my motorcycle, particularly around the Dordogne region.
I operate my business under the highly reputable LDC franchise which means I have agreed to uphold and promote stringent customer care and tuition standards. I am proficient in delivering the unique LD System of driving tuition – an exciting way to learn to drive which structures lessons around the client’s needs and encourages safe driving for life. Many clients find it takes a considerably shorter time to learn using the LD System, which saves you money too.
As an LDC driving school I offer LDC's state-of-the-art driver training products for the theory, hazard perception and practical driving tests: the UK's best-selling ‘Theory Test’ software and the number one DVD-ROM software ‘Driving Test Complete’ (as reviewed by Auto Express magazine). These products are highly recommended and available to buy from my website regardless of who you train with.
Whether you are choosing driving lessons for yourself or for a member of your family, it’s vital that you make the right choice. I sincerely believe that the LDC system is that choice and that I am the right person to deliver it. To find out more, browse my website and get in touch for a friendly no-obligation chat.
I look forward to driving with you soon. "Contact me"
