I couldn’t recommend A star Driving school and Mark enough! A wonderful company/instructor, mark is incredibly patient, explained everything clearly and well, made sure to teach me everything I could need to both pass the test and be ready as a driver, was lovely company and I couldn’t be happier with my overall experience! Thank you very much for everything.

I would highly recommend A Star Driving School. Mark is a very calm instructor and my daughter became very confident in her driving ability after only a few lessons with him. His manner and his method of teaching is perfect, he put my daughter at ease when she was very nervous.

Mark is a great instructor. He was able to fit in lessons around my availability. He made me feel comfortable. He reflected on any learning points in the lesson. He is always calm in any situations and I had a lot of hazards jump out at me on my lessons. I would highly recommend Mark at Astar driving school for anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you for everything Mark!

Leah B (Alister Board - Daughter Leah)

My daughter found Mark very calm and helpful. She passed her theory and practical first time and this was thanks to Mark’s great teaching. She never felt under pressure until the day of her test and this was reduced by Mark with her last lesson just before the test.


I passed first time with A Star Driving School! I can't thank Mark enough for his amazing support through my driving lessons. He helped me conquer my fears with the dreaded round about and encouraged me when I needed it. Passing my test means so much to me and Mark helped me achieve it. I highly recommend Mark to anyone who is looking to learn!
