Kamila Kowalczyk Newly Qualified ADI

“I started my ADI Training with Ladybird Driving School in March 2019. I progressed quickly through stages 1 and 2 and started my preparation for stage 3 in September 2019. It was suggested by the team that Colm Branigan will be my Stage 3 trainer. English is not my first language and I really thought this was going to be the most difficult stage for me. I met Colm for the first 2-hour lesson and after this lesson I knew I was going to be ok. Colm has a very reassuring way and calm approach and I always felt nothing was rushed and always knew what he was telling me and demonstrating to me. Everything made sense. We covered the entire syllabus and I continued even after Colm advised me, I was ready. I just wanted to be sure I had everything right. At the first-time attempting Stage 3 I’m happy to say that I passed my instructor’s exam with 86.5%.  I would 100% recommend Colm and indeed all the Ladybird team and would even say that they changed my life forever. From 14 years on restaurant wages to being my own boss helping others improve their lives. This is what life should be about. Progress and taking the chance to do better for yourself. Make the call and train with Colm Branigan. You won’t regret it. Thank you again.”

“Right from my first session with Colm, I was reassured that this was the new career for me. I felt with Colm’s assistance I could be ready for the exams and forge out a career. I think it was Colm’s relaxed, thought provoking, adaptive teaching style that told me this was the trainer for me. My own self-doubts were gradually turned into positivity as the next few weeks went by. When exam time came I felt ready and passed convincingly on the first attempt. Colm has been a guiding influence in helping me find my feet. He has always been readily available to offer clarity or advice based on his experiences within the industry which have stood me in really good stead. My new career as a driving instructor is flexible, highly rewarding and very gratifying. I look forward to continuing my development and experience in the future with Colm’s help.”

“Upon deciding to become a Driving Instructor, I simply googled the process and every time Colm Branigan’s name came up top of Google listings. I immediately thought, this man is a professional and knows what he is doing. I emailed him and he replied within the hour offering to meet for a chat, which in turn led to my training with him. Colm is the ultimate professional, he has a very calm and methodical way of teaching. His approach is a coaching style of training and delivered in a manner which allows interaction and very useful feedback. He was very supportive, encouraging and positive during my training and always ready and available to answer any questions or queries I had. He explained everything clearly and thoroughly at all times and has an incredible knowledge of the driving profession which he imparts in an easy to understand method of teaching. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to become a driving Instructor or anyone looking for driving lessons. I qualified as an ADI with 93% result and have not looked back since all thanks to Colm’s exceptional training.”

“I was looking for a person, who could inspire, challenge and support me on my new journey to becoming a qualified driving instructor. I found a fantastic teacher, experienced coach and a warm person in Colm Branigan. Colm didn’t put me into a “ready to use” plan, or box me into a universal learning style that fits all. Not at all – he let me think in my way, at my pace, giving me plenty of time and options to choose from. He was very professional, calm, relaxed and detailed. His coaching style fitted my learning style perfectly. That’s not all! Colm also trained me to become an advanced driver. I passed my first ROSPA advanced driving test at GOLD standard. Then, thanks to Colm’s support I became a ROSPA Advanced Driving Instructor and one year later a Riding Instructor. It was a good few years ago when I made the right phone call to the right person, who perfectly fulfilled my needs and expectations. Now years later, I can still remember our conversations. He supported me in my learning process from the very first minute we met. Now I am working as a driving instructor helping other drivers to fulfill their dreams. I would recommend Colm Branigan to anyone who is looking for a professional, experienced and calm teacher and coach. If you are planning to become an ADI, there is no better person to ring and meet than Colm Branigan.”
