EXCEL Driving School uses the LD System - the exciting new way to learn to drive.
Let me introduce the Learner Driving tuition system (LD System), a system that has been designed for maximum progress and ease of learning. It is a system which is structured, where each driving lesson follows a set programme with clearly defined objectives, where the instructors use professional and modern training methods to ensure your training is both effective and enjoyable
