I highly recommend Mark as an Instructor! I was able to gain confidence after being off the road for a while and Mark helped me let go of some bad driving habits picked up from previous instructors.

He uses diagrams to help explain certain situations which really helped me get a better understanding and this was reflected in my driving as I was able to pass on my first attempt with Mark as my instructor 😊

Passed first time today learning with Mark. He is very patient and extremely helpful as an instructor. He went into detail with everything I needed to know each lesson by using different techniques and methods which really helped me. He always made me feel calm and relaxed during lessons even when things didn’t always go to plan. Thank you!🙏🏽

It was an absolute pleasure being taught by Mark. He’s very patient with you ensuring that when you make a mistake, which will happen a lot at first, you stay under control and move on. He’s calming and doesn’t make you feel like you’re under any pressure. He’s very good at identifying your weaknesses and improving them by adapting his teaching style to whatever helps you the most. I would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Thank you for helping me pass first time!!

Becky Lenney

Mark was always supportive and an amazing Instructor.

He’s the second instructor I had and found him much better than my first!

He uses diagrams and goes through things with you to allow you to understand and get confident in what you are being taught. And look I passed first time!

I wouldn’t have been able to do that without him!

Not a fault at all! I’ll be recommending him to everyone who asks!

We would go over the criteria of the lesson at the beginning and we would aim to achieve it by the end of the lesson. I could not recommend him enough to everyone, even those with not much confidence

Michael Lin

I am so lucky to have Mark as my driving instructor! He helped me to build up my confidence in driving and developed my driving skills whilst being patient and reassuring! Highly recommended!


Nancy Brace

I prepared to return to driving after a break of seven years and called on Mark for refresher lessons as I had zero confidence in my driving ability.

Mark is calm, patient, professional and has a way of explaining things before, during and after each lesson that put me at ease and made me realise that I could return to driving and be both competent and confident.

In addition, Mark is exceptional value for money and puts a real emphasis on addressing the mental and physical blocks students put on themselves in the form of anxieties and works with the student to overcome them.

Thanks very much Mark.
