The Main Reason Why I Chose Mark Jordan Driving

My dad actually found Mark Jordan Driving School and chose him as he had so many excellent reviews. Mark personally dropped a welcome pack through my door before my first lesson. I had never sat behind a wheel in a car before and never thought in a million years I’d be sitting here just over 5 months later, passed with 0 minors! I Really Thought…………….

Hi my name is Mark Jordan owner of Mark Jordan Driving and myself a fully qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructor providing quality Driving lessons in Burton, Swadlincote, Ashby and all the surrounding areas.

Mark Jordan Driving School have been operating since 2012 and have built a reputation of being the premier driving school the area.

All our driving instructors are CRB/DBS checked for your safety and approved by the vehicle standrds agency, which also means they will be fully qualified and on the Register of Approved driving Instructors ADI.

The driving tuition offered is client centred, that means you are not told what you are going to do but you will be able to discuss a plan of action that you are comfortable with. A good example of this would be, where your instructor suggests that a dual carriageway drive would be appropriate at your stage of learning within the syllabus, but you may feel that you are not quite ready, and you may prefer to revisit a previous subject for your reassurance before moving on..

One of our biggest challenges when attracting new students that are learning to drive is that many believe that all Driving Instructors are the same and I can assure you this is definitely not the case.

Many students and parents wrongly assume that all driving schools and instructors are the same and this couldn’t be further from the truth! The practice of simply choosing lessons on price alone and looking for the cheapest is fast changing as so many people are now turning to customer reviews to seek the top tutors before making a purchase. Whether it’s the pupil that is paying for their tuition with their own hard-earned money or a parent that has been tasked with finding a suitable training provider, they will both want the best and most compatible tutor to ensure a successful outcome.

Why do driving lesson prices vary so much when you can pay as low as £9.99 right up to £30.00 plus?

Which Instructor?
Be careful not to fall into the trap of choosing private instruction on a near me basis as almost all tutors will offer a pick up and drop off service within the local area and choosing the nearest or nearby is not necessary. It would be wise to seek out those that are top rated, trusted and recommended by previous students.

There are different grades and standards of driving instructors, some instructors take no further development training from the day they qualify where others are continually taking courses and training to keep at the forefront of modern teaching and coaching to pass on their driving skills to you.

Does this matter to you? YES, because it will reflect on the value you receive from your Driving Lessons. The popular and very true saying is:

“Beware the hidden cost of cheap”.

A well-trained driving instructor offering driving lessons for beginners will enable you to learn much faster and not only get you to pass your theory test but pass your Driving Test much sooner but save you a fortune on the way.

Driving Schools that charge a premium lesson rate are very confident in the quality of customer service and tuition they provide, where individual instructors working on his/her own may charge a very low lesson rate because they lack recent training and confidence in the service they offer.

The question to ask, is why would any driving instructor undersell themselves and offer the cheapest driving lessons.

I mentioned above that Mark Jordan Driving School have been able to build a very reputable reputation for driving lessons by providing customer centered lessons with a strong mission statement of customer success.

We rely enormously on recommendations to keep our instructors busy and are extremely grateful to all customers for the Customer Reviews they provide.

Talk is cheap and we now live in a customer review society where it is so easy to gain an independent view of a Driving School before deciding who to trust with your tuition.

Your goal is to Pass 1st Time, it’s our goal too.
