The student-centred LD System speaks for itself — it is well structured and the videos give great examples. However, what sets the experience apart is the instruction, guidance and support received from Karl Oliver. I cannot express enough how pivotal Karl was in my success when I achieved a year-long goal of obtaining my driving license in the UK with one minor. May I add, Karl is an exceptional instructor — he is courteous, considerate and listens above anyone else. Much like being a good driver you have to make observations to what’s happening in front of you and make the correct action / reaction to the situation presented. As a teacher, Karl has done just that. He’s observed my driving capability, illustrated areas that are good and where to improve and developed my safety on the road for not just myself but for others. Before I came to Karl I had a massive knock to my confidence when I booked a short notice test on the IOW after spending merely 10 hours at another driving school. I felt unprepared and embarrassed about the fail I received and as I’ve experienced this I can talk about it and make comparisons. Having had 6 years of driving experience in the United States I felt a false sense of security in my driving as I was capable of operating a vehicle but what also came with that was severely bad driving habits that I wasn’t even aware of because I’d become so naive to the ability of my awareness whilst driving and ability to make observations. This was a daunting obstacle to overcome however with Karl’s unrelenting support and guidance I was in the position to illustrate to myself my driving strengths and areas to improve — upon this we were able to devise a plan to best approach enhancing my driving abilities to the point where I am a natural fluent driver in lessons and in the real world and to me that’s what sets Karl apart from any other instructor I’ve met, he was a pleasure to work with as a teacher and someone to look up to as a mentor and had the ability to even form a friendship with myself. I’m not one to usually write a review however in this circumstance Karl Oliver went above and beyond any expectations and I cannot recommend him any higher to anyone no matter what level of driving they’re convinced they have, Karl Oliver will sort you out top bloke.
I'm a driving instructor in Stubbington, Fareham, Gosport, Lee On The Solent, Titchfield, Hill Head, Portchester, Warsash, Locksheath and surrounding areas
