Lorry / LGV Testimonials

Eoighan Rogers, Limavady

That’s the first part of the lorry test passed, the Module 4 CPC passed also. Thank you to Lawrence Deehan at LCD Driving Academy, his lorry and training are 1st class. Def recommended for a trainer provider.

Ryan Judge, Ballerin

I had a goal to become a HGV Driver since I was very young. Going to truck shows, spotting lorries the dream was always to be a driver of one. Due to commitments and the cost of the test time went by until I said that's it. I saved hard for a full year and went for it. I FAILED, DEVASTATED.

I then changed Driving Schools to LCD. Lawrences business compared to the previous training school was like day and night. Being re-trained by a fully qualified driving instructor proved well on the day of my test as I PASSED.

Lawrences lorry was a pleasure to drive with modern installed front/rear camera's. Very clean and well maintained. LCD provides a excellent service with no hidden costs.Only one regret, and that is I never went to LCD first. I'll be back for my C+E

Thanks Lawrence & Brian

After being recommend LCD Driving Academy by a work colleague I contacted Lawrence in the hope he would guide me in the right direction to achieve my Class 2 license. From the 1st phone call that's exactly what happened. Lawrence explained the process step by step, from medical all the way through to the final CPC qualification. The driving tuition provided was first class and I have no doubt LCD's Daf Lorry is the best on the road. Highly recommended.

Martin Callaghan, Derry

I passed my class 1 lorry driving test first time all thanks to Lawrence he is a really sound fella he teaches you the skills you need so you pass first time unlike other companies I was previously with. He had me learning essential skills from the start I would recommend Lawrence to anyone looking to be a HGV driver because he is a brilliant instructor who is able to joke and laugh and Ii felt very comfortable while learning also he's alot cheaper than the company I did my class 2 with which was a bonus in my eyes and one of the reasons I went to LCD Training. Thanks again Lawrence you're a gent.

Laura Shettle

I would like to say a massive thank you to Lawrence Deehan and Brian, who helped me in achieving my goal in getting my HGV licence today. Without both of your hard work and patience I never would of even dreamed of going for my test let alone passing it. I can not recommend you enough Lawrence Deehan from start right though to finish the confidence and help you gave me was top class. I would give you 5 stars plus for all the help and time you have put in with me. Top class service from top class instructors.

I took my LGV Training with LCD and I have to say the training provided was top class and the Lorry was a joy to drive, I went from never having been in a lorry before to passing my test in a short space of time Lawrence and Brian are both gentlemen and I would recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone looking a professional friendly service. Definitely a 5 * rating from me

Stephen McDonald, Fleck Imet Metal Solutions

Davy Campbell, Limavady

I would like to thank LCD driving academy for their excellent tuition and experience and keeping me on the ball on my C+E lessons there new truck was a breeze to drive and I would highly recommend LCD driving academy.

Declan McConway, Limavady

I passed my C+E lorry & trailer test with Lawrence and his new 2014 euro 6 fully automatic cf daf. This was my first time driving a fully automatic lorry, and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure to have experienced driving such an amazing lorry. The reason I chose LCD was simply because they have a reputation for setting a high standard of excellence in driver tuition and also a high level pass rate by the DVA. These were the key factors for me. From day one Lawrence explained everything in a very clear and understanding way. This made learning with him very enjoyable. Again I'd like to thank Lawrence for his help and guidance in training me up to a level of professional lorry driving. Cheers Lawrence.

Tony Sellers

Having passed the test, I would like to thank Lawrence for his help, patience, training and effort that he has given me. Having never reversed a trailer of any kind I was very apprehensive of taking this test, but the training and practise Lawrence gave, helped me gain enough confidence to go for it. His attitude and knowledge, coupled with his ability to break it down into understandable pieces is priceless. I have done various driver training with other instructors, none of whom came close Lawrence when it came down to it. I have no hesitation in recommending LCD for anyone looking to drive cars or lorries, in fact I believe it would be foolish to go anywhere else. Once again. Thank You Lawrence for all your help.

Raymond Dallas, Macosquin, Coleraine.

I went to LCD driving academy to do my C & C+ E. A family member advised me that LCD where the only training company worth going to.

LCD told me straight from day one all the information that I needed to know with no hidden costs and I am pleased to say, I was not disappointed with the results.

I passed both tests first time + the module 4 CPC test. Thanks to Brian in category C and Lawrence in category C+E. I would like to thank them both for their efforts in helping me achieve my passes and gaining more knowledge and information on the dangers to look out for.

I would highly recommend LCD to anyone wishing to achieve a driving skill for life, in any category.


Kelvin Shields

Highly recommended 5* instructor, a pleasure but a tight 5 days but well worth it thanks Lawerance, regards Kelvin

Tony Sellers

A big thank you to Lawrence and Brian for all your efforts in helping me pass my lorry test on Friday. The tuition from both was second to none and tailored for my needs. The professional approach and yet friendly, personal interaction helped ease any nerves or worries. Both took time to explain what and more importantly why I should be doing something and what to avoid.

The Lorry is in an excellent condition which also helped, having already had experience in driving "dodgy" vehicles with other trainers. If anyone is reading this and looking for a place to learn, I would strongly recommend that they look no further than here.

Paul Miller

I wanted to obtain my category c and c+e licence. After many friends and family telling me to go Lawerence I got in contact and from day one he was nothing but supportive. I had driven tractors and large machinery around the farm but I learnt so much in the days I was training.

I would like to thank Lawrence for putting me through my cat C licence and to Brian Boyle who helped me obtain my C+E licence and would recommend him to any one.

Andrew Logan

LCD driving academy was an excellent help in getting me through my lorry test. Lawrence is an superb instructor who was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend him to others. I look forward to the next challenge of the trailer test and I am confident that with Lawrence's expert assistance I will have the same success. Many thanks for all your help to date.

David Carr

Just a quick email to thank you for helping me pass my C test earlier.

The tuition given was outstanding. I've been used to driving a car over the past 8 years so I had a lot of bad habits.... However your firms but fair approach to teaching helped me to cut out the habits. In turn leading to me passing my c test earlier today. Even minutes before my test you were reassuring me on what to do etc. I honestly can’t thank you enough and I will definitely recommend you to everyone.

Tommy Burns, Derry

Conor Bradley, Armoy

I would like to say a BIG Thank you to Lawrence on passing the C&E lorry and trailer test. My experience with LCD Driving Academy was absolutely BRILLANT. The tuition was very thorough and professional from start to finish. Lawrence's guidance and instructions were excellent and helped me to gain a high standard of driving skills.Lawrence is a great instructor with a wealth of experience in which I would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in doing the H.G.V. test.

Philip Bartlett, Armoy

After hearing from a few of my friends about LCD, I was sure Lawrence was the man for training me for the CAT C test. Lawrence is an excellent instructor and is great at building up your confidence. It was no time at all from when I first contacted Lawrence until I passed my cat C due to his no nonsense approach and professional manner. I'm now planning on doing my cat C + E training with LCD and would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone interested in passing their test. Many thanks Lawrence.

Chris Nicholl - Castlerock

I done my class 2 traning with Lawrence and passed first time no problem, hes a very good teacher and can tell you anything that you need to know, im now planning to do my module 4 training and my class one training with him, i would highly recomend Lawrence to anybody doing any test from car to lorry test.

Micky Mc Devitt - Castlederg

I want to thank Lawrence for an enjoyable & efficient learning experience which got me my lorry test first time. He is a very professional instructor and is very clear giving instructions & answering questions. I will definitely be recommending him to anyone again!!

Aidan Moore - Foreglen

I recently passed my class 2 and C+E with LCD. Lawrence’s training is to a high standard and by the book. I would recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone.

Gregory Brown

I would just like to say a BIG Thank you to Lawrence and his team for the professional treatment i have received throughout my training. I done my 4 day training with Lawrence for my Cat C licence and must say his attention to detail and the way he gets his point across is second to none. I really enjoyed the whole experience and hope to complete my C+E very soon. The atmosphere he creates in the cab just settles everyone down and really helped me a lot. Thanks Da. (LOL)

Hope your business goes from strength to strength.

Cathal Faux - County Fermanagh

I sat my Class 2 lorry test with LCD driving academy an I couldn't fault them at all, they were so helpful and couldn't do enough for you, I will definitely go back to them to sit my C+E test, thanks. Cathal

Cathal Mc Gowan

I would like to give a special thanks to Lawrence and his team for their expert training which led me on to passing my lorry test first time. I am pretty confident that I will get the lorry and trailer first time as well because Lawrence is an excellent instructor and pushes you 140%. I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone as he is upfront about everything and no nonsense. Thank-you Lawrence

Paul Donaldson

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lawrence Deehan for putting me through my LGV test. Working on a farm from a young age, I had experience of maneuvering large vehicles and trailers, however I was quite apprehensive about driving an articulated lorry on the road. Lawrence put me at ease and was very professional yet friendly and helpful throughout. He was willing to answer any questions or queries that I had along the way.

My experience as a whole, was a very enjoyable one and one in which I felt I was being pushed to the limit. Subsequently I got both tests first go! Once again I would like to thank Lawrence for this amazing opportunity, and at 21 years of age I believe that having my LGV test will have many benefits for the future including the fact that I will be more employable. I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy to anyone hoping to drive either a rigid or articulated lorry.

Ronan Mullan, Cromore Castles, Portstewart

Having known about LCD Driving Academy from previous driver training (B+E) I had no hesitation deciding who to contact for my LGV training. To obtain the C+E Licence is a lengthy process but Lawrence made it as simple as possible. Lawrence was willing to go the extra mile training me to a higher standard than required and teaching me things over and above what the test required, It really made me more confident on the road. I enjoyed my time at LCD it was a fun experience and would recommend it to anyone that is wanting to learn in the classes that Lawrence train's in.

Robert Connolly

I'd like to thank Lawrence for helping me threw my c+e test, he is very strict an let's you away with very little mistakes,which sounds to be off putting but hand on my heart it prepares you for your test to a high standard. Although he is strict he also makes you at ease when driving and is more than willing to take time to talk or show you any problems you may have (try not to have Lawrence standing out in the rain watching you drive over his cone like I did, lol, I'll get you another one Lawrence) I'd highly recommend Lawrence for any driving lessons you require, I did my car an motorbike with two different instructors an they wouldn't come close to experience or professionalism that Lawrence showed,

Thanks Lawrence

C R, Limavady

It has always been a personal ambition of mine to learn to drive a lorry.  Lawrence was recommended to me for training. He was really good and was very patient (had to be with me) and put me at ease.  Although tuition was relaxed and we shared a bit of craic, Lawrence trains very much ‘by the book’, is firm and takes no nonsense.  All these attributes certainly resulted in me passing the test first time. I would definitely recommend LCD Driving Academy’s LGV Course to anyone. I am currently doing the HGV course with LCD Driving Academy and plan to also do the C & T course in the near future.

Vincent Kivelhan

If anyone can get you through the LGV Test, LCD Driving Academy can!  Lawrence has a non nonsense approach to his tuition method but he knows how to keep himself and the learner calm under pressure. My experience with LCD Driving Academy was BRILLIANT. Without Lawrence I definitely wouldn’t have passed the LGV Test first time. I really can’t recommend him enough. I’m now seriously considering the 2nd stage in January.
