I struggled initially with learning to drive through an instructor over in Coventry. It was manual lessons and found it extremely difficult to grasp the concept with a manual gearbox also the instructor was very difficult and not the friendliest.
My criteria was to go for automatic lessons to help this and speed up the process of passing.
Due to the fact I didn’t get on with my previous instructor I felt it was important that my new instructor was friendly and easy to get along with . I felt I was going to achieve these through 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐤 𝐉𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐧 𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 and wasn’t disappointed.
I was worried to begin with that I would still find driving difficult and that it would take me a while to get used to , however that wasn’t the case. Each lesson was made super easy and straight away felt confident I was going to make progress quickly.
Andy Tyler was my Instructor and how glad I am that it was!
Andy was absolutely fantastic from start to finish . Straight away made me feel extremely comfortable and manage to have a few laughs along the way too.
Each lesson was planned really well and Andy made sure I understood each lesson and grasped what I was being taught before moving onto another topic.
Andy never over complicated any situation making it really easy to learn new things when driving . Also using aides such as the iPad to help with scenarios really helped.
I remember one particular roundabout I was struggling with lane discipline . The next lesson Andy took the time to get a Google earth view of the roundabout and showed me in depth where I should be positioned on each exit . I thought this was the perfect way to show me how to do it correctly . Also I felt he was going the extra mile to ensure I understood.
I would recommend 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐤 𝐉𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐧 𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 soley down to the care they have for there learners and specifically Andy Tyler as I couldn’t ask for any more from him.

I initially chose 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐤 𝐉𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐧 𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 after reading many other highly positive reviews, and I have to say, they are 100% accurate!
They made me feel wanted right from the beginning; I was initially only able to do lessons at specific times, but they were incredibly helpful in making making sure I could fit in.
My driving instructor was Andy Tyler, and was possibly the most patient person I have ever met! No matter how many times I took a corner too wide, bumped a kerb, or braked too late, he never got annoyed, and calmly explained how to do these things properly and safely.
Needless to say, I HIGHLY recommend 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐤 𝐉𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐧 𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 School, thanks to Andy, I was able to pass on my first attempt!

As there are numerous options when selecting a driving school, it was important that a local driving school also had credibility. Mark Jordan driving school was not only local for me, but offered fantastic statistics regarding their pass rates. Furthermore, communication was also important for me. I contacted Mark Jordan with queries as to when my lessons could start, lessons times, as well as various other questions, and the service was brilliant. Fast responses and approachability provided clarity and reassurance from the beginning – which was not always the case when contacting other driving schools.
Mark Jordan Driving School also offered discount for the first 10 lessons, which was helpful financially speaking. It was a nice pull factor when selecting a driving school, which proved difficult following the backlog from COVID-19.
My instructor was Andy Tyler and I cannot commend him enough for his teaching. It was a pleasure to learn alongside his expertise; he offered the perfect balance between reassurance and discipline. As someone who wanted to pass as soon and as safely as possible, I believe Andy taught me how to be a safe driver for life whilst still enjoying the experience. Importantly, Andy made sure the standards which I was capable of were met, particularly as test day approached. This was essential to having the confidence in myself to pass.
Mark Jordan Driving School offers a fantastic balance of good quality driver training with an enjoyable and engaging learner experience. For example, the use of tablets and diagrams meant the learning process was approached in a manageable step-by-step manor which was easy to digest and, most importantly, understand on a weekly basis.
I could not recommend Andy Tyler and Mark Jordan Driving School enough for this reason.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Drive on My First Lesson?

You will definitley drive on your first lesson. Your driving instructor will drive you to a quiet and safe area to start and go over some basic training that you will need to perform each time you get in the car, we call this the 'Cockpit Drill'.

Once you are familiar with this they will then give you a full briefing about driving the car and get you to have a go whilst they talk you through every step of the way.

You can download our FREE PDF that will go into more detail about your first lesson.

Your first driving lesson is the start of our 'Accelerated Learning System' to help you to test in the shortest time, saving you money and frustration along the way.

How Many Driving Lessons Will I Need?

It's really hard to know until you start your lessons .

The average pupil according to the DVSA requires approx 45 hours professional tuition plus 22 hours private practice with friends or family to reach test standard. This can of course sometimes be more and other times could be less.

We strongly recommend having 2 hour lessons once a week.

By having a 2 hour lesson you will learn far more on each driving lesson as you will have time to reflect on each subject and be test ready in half the time.

using our unique Accelerated Learning System and taking a regular 2 hour lesson once a week will give you more time to practice the subject you are currently learning, you retain the information better and as mentioned you will be test ready sooner.

If you book with us your chosen lesson slot will be the same time and day every week so you can plan your free time knowing your driving lesson will always be the same.

Can I Block Book Driving Lessons?


We strongly recommend booking in blocks of 10 hours. This will give you a discount of £20 based on our pay weekly price. If you have paid for 10 hours and decide you need to stop for whatever reason we will happily refund any credit you have remaining. Plus if you pay in 10 hour Blocks you get the added benefit of our 'PASS  OR  WE PAY'

What Are Your Instructors 1st Time Pass Rate?

We are very proud of our 1st time pass rate and our driving instructors deserve a lot of credit for their hard work.

Its impossible to give the exact % as we have tests almost every day so it will continually change.

You only have to read our reviews here on our site and also on Google to see how happy our pupils have been with both our service and their lessons.

We want you to choose the right driving school for your tuition and not to become one of the 30% of local pupils who change their instructor half way through their tuition.

How Do I Start My Driving Lessons?

First you must apply and receive a provisional Driving Licence, this can be applied for via the .GOV site, Apply for your first provisional driving licence.

Once received you can start looking for your driving instructor, some driving instructors work independently others will be members of a driving school where there maybe 3 or 4 that work in your area.

You can look for a driving instructor either on Google or via the .Gov site Find driving schools, lessons and instructors.

Once you feel you have found the right one give them a call or drop them an email explaining you wish to start driving lessons, they will probably ask you a few questions, like what is your availability? some will want a deposit for the slot you have booked others will take payment on the day of pick up.

If you have any queries your chosen instructor should be able to help or point you in the right direction.

Do You Pick Me Up Or Do I Meet You?

All our instructors will pick up and drop off locally. We can pick up after college or work and drop you back at home. Pick up from home and drop off at work or college.

As long as it is local we will even drop you off for your dentist or hair appointment in town.
