Larry is a very excellent driving instructor, he has taken my daughter's driving lessons and thanks to him she passed on her first try. My daughter has said that he explains the key points very well and is able to kindly tell her what mistakes she has made. Larry knows how to train his students to ensure they are well prepared for the test. Highly recommend LearnWithLarry. Thank you for your work!

Larry Smith: Thank you, kind sir! It was a pleasure to teach your daughter. She was very focused and diligent in her learning - which made my job that much easier. Please pass on my 'Congratulations' to her.
Yay, passed my restricted! Thank you Larry. Larry is an amazing driving instructor, teacher and advisor. He's lovely, super helpful, positive and very patient. He makes driving fun and so much easier with confidence. His technique, style and way of teaching is great and very effective. If you're wanting to learn how to drive, I'd definitely recommend Larry. He's always willing to help and is determined to help people achieve their goals and to create a safe driving environment. THANKS LARRY!

Larry has been my driving instructor for both my restricted and my full licence test (almost four years apart in between). Has anything changed over the course of the years? Yes, the change is he getting a LOT busier teaching! If you are looking for someone who's patient but affirmative, and has so much faith in your learning and safe driving, please contact Larry.

My son had very little confidence in driving after failing the restricted test a few times. After Larry's tuition he is a great driver. He also passed his restricted test on Friday which made his day. Larry is professional, patient and a fantastic driving teach. Thank you so much Larry. It is obvious to say I would highly recommend Larry.

Amazing instructor and teacher! I started driving with Larry and he was so calm and friendly it made me feel extremely relaxed and confident behind the wheel. After 8 Lessons with Larry I decided to take my test and passed first time all thanks to Larry and his great tuition. I highly recommend that anyone wanting to learn how to drive young or old, should consider him. A+++ Thanks Larry! You legend!

Larry did a fantastic job with our son. He built up a great rapport with Tom very early in the process and increased his confidence quite quickly with careful instruction. Tom went into the test very confident and gained his license at his first attempt which is fantastic. Can't recommend Larry highly enough.

Larry's calm and clear instruction and knowledge in getting the girls confident and test ready really paid off. Both passed first restricted first time. Highly recommend.

She passed her Restricted first time!! which seems to be a recurring theme for Larry :) Thank you for your patience, kindness and knowledge. I am so happy that it is you teaching child number two right now so I don't have to.

larry was amazing, we had him for a few lessons for our 17 year old daughter, he was honest in what she needed and was very professional but friendly with her. He was always calm and patient. Highly recommend for anyone learning to drive (:

Larry did a great job getting our son ready for his restricted test, which he passed first time! We will definitely be using Larry again in the future.

He's one of the best instructor you will find around in Auckland. Too patient and calm to explain any situation, that's what a new driver is looking for. Thank you so much Larry for your help and the support. Regards, Vanni

Larry was very helpful and very accommodating, particularly in relation to work hours and providing his car for the test; he made it much easier to get through my full licence test.

Larry was a terrific coach for my daughter Claudia. Over a few short lessons, he taught her all the essential skills and put her at ease so she flew through the test for her restricted license (no easy feat). Having a lesson on the day and using Larry's car for the test itself also really helped and is recommended!

Larry Smith: Thank you for your support and I wish you A PEACEFUL & SAFE NEW YEAR!
Larry Smith is the way to go if you need some driving lessons. With such a warm temperament Larry puts you at ease and teaches in a very constructive and helpful way. I am so glad I took the time to take lessons with him, it really paid off :) as I gained the skills to get my full license and passed the test with no qualms. I definitely recommend learning with Larry.
