I chose Mark Jordan Driving because they were recommended to me and they had an excellent reputation for reliability and first time pass rate.
It was also important to me to learn in a medium sized, new vehicle which would give me experience with the modern tech now found in most cars.
I didn’t know how I would feel on my first lesson but Mark my instructor explained everything clearly, step by step putting me immediately at ease.
The two hour lessons allowed me to consolidate the skills taught and build confidence as the weeks went on.
Mark was always on time and had a reassuring style of teaching whilst allowing me to choose the areas I wished to focus on. He encourages his students to choose the level of instructor input increasing independent thinking as the lessons progress.
I would recommend Mark personally as a driving instructor,
he is professional but friendly and I felt completely safe on the road from my first lesson. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive with him.
Thank you Mark for helping me pass first time.

After being let down on multiple occasions by a previous independent instructor, I decided to look into other instructors in my area and Mark Jordan Driving School stuck out, and rightfully so as I had truly amazing lessons and managed to pass my test first time.
Starting driving lessons is always scary but, for me, having Richard Wall as my instructor made the fear turn into excitement to be driving. Richard was patient and friendly from the second I got into the car for my first lesson and every second after which greatly helps, as a naturally nervous person I felt relaxed during the lessons.
He was always reassuring and helped me to boost my confidence in my own driving skills through the little phrases and acronyms, the in depth explanations, reminding me of things that I forgot and correcting my mistakes in kind and effective ways. Overall, I found the teaching methods incredibly effective and helpful.
I always looked forward to my driving lessons with Richard and I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. He was always on time, would message me to let me know of any changes and told me weeks in advance if he was unable to make a lesson. It is very easy to have conversations with Richard which made me much more comfortable in my lessons as I am a very talkative person and while teaching me to drive he managed to create a comfortable space where we were able to talk normally.
I would highly recommend Mark Jordan Driving School to anybody wishing to learn to drive and I am forever grateful for the experience.

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.
