I was provided with information from the LDC driving skills workbook and used the official DVSA theory test app. Mark has been an excellent instructor with helpful and consistent teaching and advice. His style of teaching helped with my confidence and ability to fix mistakes when driving. The LDC workbook was extremely helpful in reflecting on lessons and preparing for my test. Overall Mark has been a great teacher who has made my experience of learning to drive a pleasant one.

Mark is a great instructor, providing high quality teaching in a friendly and relaxed manner. He helped me feel comfortable and at ease behind the wheel. It was my first time driving and as our lessons continued my confidence grew considerably. I’m very pleased to say with Mark’s help I passed first time. Thank you Mark!

The workbook was incredibly helpful when I first started learning how to drive. The reflective sections were useful to keep track of my personal progress, and helped with goal setting for each lesson. Mark’s website was great to help me prepare for the theory test. The practice questions helped me gain confidence before taking the test. Mark himself is an awesome teacher, he was incredibly patient as I struggled mastering gears for a while. He was always calm and we had great chats. In preparation for the test he made sure I was confident and prepared me for any potential scenarios that could come up. A fantastic instructor, I would highly recommend for anyone.

Before having mark as my instructor I was such a nervous driver. Mark helped me with everything and ensured I gained the confidence I needed. He is one of the best instructors around, so friendly, with great teaching methods and an all round lovely person. I highly recommend Mark to new drivers or anyone wanting their driving license.

New found confidence
My instructor was amazing with me. I was so nervous but he helped me build my confidence and really took his time when teaching me. The student centred system worked great for me. I watched all the videos and they all gave me a better understanding. I would like to say thank you to Mark for getting me to where I am today.

Mark is a great instructor. He was very patient when I made mistakes and helped me correct them, which helped my confidence. We started every lesson with a plan, this helped me achieve goals quicker and saved me time and money. The LDC workbook was a great way to to practice my skills outside of the lessons and prepare me for the theory and practical tests. I passed both first time and would 100% recommend Mark.

Highly recommended for those who are planning to drive for the first time. Very patient with new drivers and always on time. Thank you.

My driving instructor was a great teacher. Rather than telling me what I did wrong and explaining how to correct it, he got me to answer the questions myself. This helped my driving as I became more thoughtful towards how I was driving and realising any mistakes I had made, even when they were told to me directly later on. The LDC workbook was a useful tool to consolidate work done in lessons. It also helped me focus on what I needed to work on while driving as well as information useful for the practical driving test. The theory test preparation resources were beneficial in passing my theory test. The website was very easy to navigate and the hazard perception test and theory questions both helped me to become a safer and more proactive driver.

Mark was very good at asking what subject I wanted to cover on each lesson. At the end of each lesson we recorded the progress I had made and where I could improve. This helped me to keep track of my progress and identify what I could do to improve further. Mark was very patient and taught my everything I needed to know to drive safely. Also we used LD workbooks which has pictures and diagrams of different situations which were very helpful if you are a visual learner.

Perseverance pays off
I had 40 hours of lessons and two failed tests prior to meeting Mark. Mark was encouraging and a pleasure to share a car with, which was really helpful as a nervous and lacking confidence learner. Feedback was always constructive and provided points to focus on. Backed up by helpful review sessions at the end of each lesson. Mark’s attention to covid safety inspired confidence. The LDC system provided a useful way of reviewing my progress and refreshing my knowledge before the test. Thanks Andrew.

I’ve had some experience driving with my husband many years ago. I started learning with Mark about 6 months ago and he did a great job of adapting my skill level. Mark’s approach made me feel confident when learning and helped me to understand where to improve my techniques. I’d highly recommend Mark’s services to anyone as a new driver or someone with previous experience. Couldn’t recommend enough.
