My instructor, Richard Wall, took onboard my issues, strengths and weaknesses. Understood them and we collectively worked out a plan to get me passed.
Having memory issues and other ‘hidden disabilities’ were always a worry. But easily overcome with having someone like Richard as a coach.
He was always calm, always on point and a real joy to learn from which made getting along a real breeze. He’s very knowledgeable and the kind of guy you look forward to having a chat with. The structure of the lessons are personalised and easy to understand, yet detailed enough to know what you need to work on.
Richard will speak to you before, during and after in terms of your ability and will always give you the opportunity to express your view on strengths and weaknesses.
This plays a vital role in truly understanding your competence and natural talents.
Having someone to evaluate and confer over your aptitude is a gift. He never once got frustrated and inherently imparts assurance and the right level of self-confidence with every lesson.
My 2 hour lessons comprised of beginning with a short drive to a suitable place to practice manoeuvres, followed by independent driving utilising signage or SATNAV, latterly refining dual-carriageway proficiency. Sometimes in alternating patterns to avoid monotony. All whilst learning how to drive safely, negating a wide variety of dangers and grasping the pedantry of traffic and roadwork avoidance, making use of alternate …..

I’ve always loved the idea of driving so when I was looking for a driving instructor I was advised to read reviews first.
I looked at ๐Œ๐š๐ซ๐ค ๐‰๐จ๐ซ๐๐š๐ง ๐ƒ๐ซ๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐ง๐  and their reviews really stood out to me, everyone saying exactly what I wanted in an instructor.
On contacting them the communication via email was great, letting me know exactly what to expect on my first lesson, and who my instructor was.
My instructor was Mark and he was great at getting me ready to tackle the roads of Burton and Swadlincote, he was always calm and patient right from the start and
right up until the final lesson before my test.
Mark’s teaching methods were great, he would use his Ipad to explain tricky roundabouts and junctions and also act out scenarios, for those situations that may never actually happen whilst on a lesson.
We would make notes at the end of each lesson and go over what I believed I needed more practice on, but also the areas that I thought I had really improved on from the previous week.
These notes were then emailed to me so I could go over them before the next lesson, this helped me focus on the lesson at hand.
I would highly recommend ๐Œ๐š๐ซ๐ค ๐‰๐จ๐ซ๐๐š๐ง ๐ƒ๐ซ๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐ง๐  school to anyone looking for a calm and patient instructor, they will go out of their way to help you succeed and make that 1st time pass like mine a reality.
Thanks Mark you have kept my love of driving alive throughout my lessons and even more so now I have passed.

The schools use of two hour lessons is a great way to learn with enough time to grow your knowledge and theory surrounding the highway code as well as apply this through practical experience across a variety of roads.
This was great for me throughout my learning as it enabled me to make a lot more progress throughout each lesson.
My instructor Richard was great at making me feel comfortable behind the wheel due to his patience. He has a great understanding of how different learners may feel about this new experience and is able to adapt his teaching style depending on the confidence of each of his students.
The methods that Richard used during lessons was very effective and really furthered my understanding of certain scenarios. When learning something new he would use an iPad to show demonstrations of different situations relating to the lesson objective.
This would usually be paired with a conversation about what is happening therefore readying me to have a go throughout a hands on approach.

I already knew i was going to enjoy driving but after being with Mark Jordan Driving School it was honestly one of the best experiences i’ve had.
.
My instructor was Mark himself and starting out i had not a clue what i was doing but that was no issue. Each lesson we’d gradually build up confidence in each area of driving making sure i was fully comfortable with what i was doing, all the while him having every confidence in me too.
.
I felt no pressure to have to do anything i was afraid of which in the end was what’s allowed me to pass first time. He was everything i could have asked for as i was worried about my instructor being cold and unapproachable but he was the opposite.
.
I felt as though i could talk to him about anything being driving related or not. After my sister having him as an instructor too being i could tell we’d get along well and we definitely did.
.
The way he teaches is genuinely a gift and had i had any other instructor i feel like i would not have passed.
Even speaking to my friends about our instructors i feel proud to show him off almost.
.
I would 10000% recommended Mark Jordan Driving, thank you so so much for everything.

After years of thinking about it (and being far too anxious to go for it!) Last year I finally set my sights on learning to drive, and searching through numerous schools Mark Jordan stood out for having many fantastic reviews and passes so I reached out, and with time slots to help accommodate around work was paired with my instructor Richard Wall almost immediately, and took my first lesson only a few weeks later. The discounted block bookings are great as they help you get your lessons planned in well in advance so less stress week to week.

From the first lesson, I found Richard to be a fantastic instructor, he helped to explain both the technical aspects of driving and operating a car, and the behaviours expected of you and other road users. We took extensive notes every week, meaning whenever something popped up we could look back and see what to focus on, and Richard was very easy to work with, allowing me to offer my own ideas about lesson plans and always answering any questions I had (as small or insignificant as I might have felt they were).

Over the course of a year, I’ve gone from being nervous behind the wheel on my first lesson, to not only learning the technical skills i need to drive, but developing my own ability to assess mine and other people’s actions on the road and how I can safely navigate the roads with other drivers. The most valuable skill of course is confidence, which comes with time but also a great instructor providing me with the tools and encouragement to get to where I needed to be. Right up until the morning of my test, Richard remained vigilant at keeping me observing and remembering all the important little things as well as the big. He was friendly and approachable throughout and always answered any questions I had.

If you’re considering Mark Jordan Driving School, I highly recommend! Keeping in close contact to arrange lessons, sending you all the lesson plan details so you can practise at home and prepare for your lessons, and the website has some fantastic resources for new learners! Thank you to MJ and Richard for getting me road ready!

When looking for a driving instructor I wanted to make sure I found a school who had good pass rates and reviews, as well as patient and understanding instructors. Mark Jordan driving school was perfect and my instructor Mark Jordan helped me to feel more confident when driving, especially after swapping from another driving school.

From my first lesson with Mark up until my driving test he prepared me for my test and made me feel comfortable enough to ask questions and ask for help when I needed it. Mark used a range of techniques to help me getting a better understanding and had a solution to every driving fault I dealt with. Every lesson Mark used his iPad to take notes of how the lesson went, what went well, what could I improve and what I wanted to work on the following week. These notes would be emailed to me at the end of each lesson and this was useful for when I was driving my own car as I knew what to work on when going out with my parents, to get ready for my next driving lesson.

Mark helped me to believe in myself and my driving and built my confidence throughout my lessons which helped me to pass my driving test 1st time. I would recommend Mark Jordan Driving School to anyone who is looking for patient and caring instructors who will prepare you for your test and make help you to feel at ease throughout. Thank you to Mark for guiding me through the process and helping me to feel positive about myself and my driving, even when I wanted to give up.

When searching for a driving instructor I was looking for someone who had good reviews, good pass rates and patient instructors. So Mark Jordan Driving was perfect for me.

Learning to drive has been a crazy journey for me, but I have loved every second of it thanks to my driving Instructor Mark Jordan.

Mark was a fantastic instructor who made me feel comfortable in my lessons from day one of learning to drive until I passed my test first time. Mark used different ways of teaching like demonstrations and visual drawings on his iPad which helped me understand and learn how to drive.

Mark was also very committed to help me succeed and he was so encouraging. His personality and great sense of humour always put me at ease when I was in my lessons.

Itโ€™s been a great experience and a pleasure learning to drive with Mark Jordan and I would 100% recommend Mark Jordan Driving to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive.

I would 100% recommend this driving school if you are looking for lessons as they made me feel confident and comfortable going into my test.
This was something I was sceptical about at first however my instructor was very reassuring and showed great belief in my driving ability which was passed on to me meaning I was relaxed and confident going into the test.
My instructor, Richard Wall, was incredibly helpful in the process of learning how to drive, due to his patience and clear step by step instructions he gives.
Also, the lessons were all very well structured, I was able to know what we were doing each lesson and we did reviews after each lesson to outline what went well and what I needed to improve on, this technique was amazing as it meant that I could reflect on the lesson but also see what we were doing for the next lesson so I could prepare.
I personally felt that it was important to have an instructor that I could get on with and Richard was perfect as he is always straight to the point.
Another thing i felt was impressive about my lessons was the fact that he was able to pick me up for the lesson from almost anywhere, whether it be my school or my house he was able to pick me up which was hugely beneficial as it allowed for extra flexibility.
If you are looking for a driving school I definitely recommend the Mark Jordan Driving School, they couldnโ€™t have made the process any easier for me and guided me to a first time pass.

I initially choose Mark Jordanโ€™s driving school because of availability. It was just after the pandemic lock down when my son wanted to learn to drive and there were very few driving instructors available.
It was important that the school I chose had good reviews from other parents/students, decent price for lessons, friendliness of the instructors and regular feedback on progress
Learning to drive with one of the instructors, Richard Wall was fantastic. Rich is a very open and honest person who gives valuable constructive feedback.
His teaching methods were perfect for my son. He was friendly yet constructive in his approach to teaching. My son can sometimes be lazy and needs to understand why you have to do certain things and Rich always provided this for him.
I would highly recommend Mark Jordanโ€™s driving school because it provided me with a great service. Rich is an amazing instructor and I will try and book him when my other son learns to drive in November.

I chose Mark Jordan Driving after seeing amazing online reviews and also through friends recommendations.
.
I was nervous to begin with after lacking driving confidence, but Mark my instructor soon helped me with his patience, professionalism and understanding.
.
At the end of the session, Mark would give me valuable, constructive feedback which would help me identify weaknesses and also strengths. I would receive an email review of each lesson so I could identify key areas to improve during private practise.
.
The lessons were crafted around what i could improve on and also anything i was concerned about. Also, the lesson times were fit around my college schedule well, so i could implement my driving lessons into my week.
.
I will most definitely be recommending Mark Jordan Driving to anyone in need of a driving instructor. I canโ€™t thank Mark enough for all the knowledge i have gained from him.

I chose to use Make Jordanโ€™s Driving School because it was recommended by some friends, and after looking at their reviews online.
I was given Richard as a teacher; and he was such an incredible teacher.
He was patient and always remained calm when I misunderstood how to do stuff no matter how many times we had to go over it.

He also had many different ways of teaching and was always looking for different ways to make it easier on me to understand.

I found the 2 hour slot that you get given very useful as not many other schools/teachers do this.
Thanks to Richard and Mark Jordanโ€™s Driving School I managed to pass my test 1st time with just 6 faults.

Mark Jordanโ€™s Driving school was the one that stuck out for me for itโ€™s fantastic reputation, 2hr lessons and friendly staff.

Due to feeling anxious about driving, it was important to me to find lessons where the instructor was patient to ease my anxiety.

I had Mark as my instructor and he exceeded all of my expectations, he made me feel at ease every lesson and always had so much confidence in me. I loved how we would lay out each lesson and talk through objectives for the day and how responsibilities would be shared.

Mark is very professional and has fantastic teaching methods whilst building a friendly relationship with you.

I canโ€™t recommend his driving school enough! Thank you for everything! And giving me my driving freedom!

For me personally, I waited a while to begin learning compared to my friends as I wanted to feel completely ready. So when choosing an instructor I really wanted someone who would let me take driving at my own pace.
.
For me Mark 100% did this for me as once the basics had been covered the feedback at the end of every lesson was very self reflective. I was able to see my own strengths and weaknesses, then let Mark do the teaching to fix these issues.
.
When choosing the school I also wanted someone I was able to talk to and bounce off of as when youโ€™re spending 2 hours every week with them the last thing you want is to be bored. Me and Mark had a great balance of talking and teaching and he knew when to be quiet and when we could have a good gossip.
.
The experience I had was very different to what I expected as I thought I would really struggle but infact I had the complete opposite. I made mistakes along the way but they were solved within a lesson or 2 and each felt like a kind of stepping stone towards the next skill to learn.
.
As previously mentioned my instructor was Mark Jordan and when I first heard I had the boss I thought heโ€™d be really strict but I genuinely couldnโ€™t have had a better experience with him and his way of teaching really suited my stubborn attitudes sometimes.
.
His methods were on a week on week basis of building the basic skills up first and then putting them together slowly to then become a route. These routes gradually built in difficulty but any areas which you particularly struggled in you could easily just ask and Mark would spend the appropriate time addressing the issue and before you know it it wouldnโ€™t be an issue anymore.
.
There were also a couple of lessons which I would highlight as SO SO important, First we had a distraction lesson which prepares you for when you do pass and the distraction you may encounter like loud music for example and it taught me how to cope with this and the potential dangers of this. And also a lesson performing a drive thru which is not only a bonus for the food/drink it also prepares you for an aspect of driving we all do but not all instructors cover.
.
I would recommend Mark Jordan driving a thousand times over, they are just what you need when first learning to drive. Youโ€™ll never feel anxious or unsafe and youโ€™ll get the best teaching to get you to that pass. I passed this week first time and I canโ€™t thank Mark enough for making this possible.

Before I went with Mark Jordan Driving, I had 0 professional lessons to my name, I only spent a lot of hours with my father. So when looking for an instructor it was nerve racking because I didn’t want a company that rushes you and makes you waste your money.
.
If you’re struggling to find an instructor check the reviews! honestly it gives you a good insight on how professional they are and how they gave people a good experience. Mark Jordan Drivings reviews stand out from the rest, 5 stars and people giving really detailed explanation on why they rated that high.
.
On my driving lessons I expected it to be slow and a painful journey but you learn really quick and you’re soon ready to take your test before you know it. I thought my first lesson was going to be nerve racking and awkward but it really wasn’t, it was chilled and very informative.
.
After getting my slot, I finally met my instructor Richard Wall, Richard looked like a nice bloke and I was happy with who I was with. If I could go do all my lessons again Richard would be the instructor of choice. His teaching methods are really good, he will pull you over or even before you set off and inform you on what you need to work on and he will make sure the lesson evolves around that so you can learn from it and become the better learner.
.
With Richard he didn’t make me feel over confident and allowed me to become my better self other then just a driver. Richard will test your knowledge of the road and also tell you a good explanation if you do not know the answer. I can’t express enough how much Richards teaching methods have helped me and made me learn a lot quicker than I thought.
.
Thanks to Richard I have passed my test after 20hours!! I would 100% recommend Mark Jordan Driving to anyone looking for an instructor, after Richards performance over the past few months of lessons I can only imagine the other instructors at Mark Jordan Driving. They’re honestly brilliant and the reviews really came in clutch when choosing this amazing company. They make you feel welcome and help you achieve the best of your ability. Thanks for reading my review and thank you very much Mark Jordan.

When choosing a driving instructor the most important thing for me was finding someone who was organised and had an excellent pass rate that we were able to see.
.
I found learning to drive quite challenging at times but never felt rushed as Mark my instructor was always so calm which put me at ease.

I found driving with Mark a great experience as I was able to decide what we were going to do on the lesson and he gave me the choice to be able to try things out for myself then discuss any mistakes made afterwards, which I found really useful as it developed my confidence in driving.

Also the atmosphere when learning to drive never feels strict or tense, youโ€™re always able to have a conversation which makes it more relaxed.

This is why Iโ€™d highly recommend Mark Jordanโ€™s driving school to anyone wanting to pass their driving test !

When I set out to learn to drive I decided there was 3 things I wanted from a potential instructor, firstly the pass rate for obvious reasons, value for money and one that could fit around my work/life balance.
.
Mark Jordan Driving covered all of them. So on signing up I was sent a comprehensive starter pack, this explained everything to me, what to bring to my first lesson, also what I could expect from them.
I was lucky enough to be paired with Richard Wall. Being an older learner (mid 30s) I had some level of understanding and could drive to a certain extent, Richard took me for my first lesson to get a feel of where I was at, from there we systematically went through all aspects week by week.
.
One of the things Richard did was after every lesson email about what had been covered that lesson and what we were doing the following week, this helped me physically see the progress I was making, but also prepared me for the follow week, for example if I was doing different types of crossing I could watch some YouTube videos to help me prepare. Once we had broadly covered everything we went back to polish up on a few parts I wasnโ€™t 100% confident such as parallel parking (which I got in my test lol).
.
The polishing up was purely where I felt I need to improve. At no point did I ever feel I was having lessons just for the sake of it, I took something from each and everyone. Throughout having my lesson Richard was calm, supportive, explained things well but most of all make me feel relaxed and calm.
.
I would absolutely 100% recommend Mark Jordan Driving to any potential learners, I felt valued and supported all the way, passed my test and had a great time doing it too!!! I almost miss my weekly lessons lol

I began learning to drive while living away at university but because of Covid hadnโ€™t passed by the time I graduated and moved back home.
.
I then chose to learn with Mark Jordan Driving on a friendโ€™s recommendation. My lessons were with Jamie and were far better than my previous experiences as he was professional and patient the whole way through, helping me to actually enjoy driving.
.
Jamie is very friendly and is great at making you feel at ease when you are nervous. The lessons had a clear structure and were tailored to the skills that I personally needed to work on or was less confident about.
.
Any mistakes I made were talked about calmly and not dwelled on, making sure I learned from the experience and moved on.
.
Having a fixed 2 hour time slot each week was perfect for me and debriefing after every lesson ensured I got the most out of each lesson.
.
I would definitely recommend Mark Jordan driving School to anyone looking for a driving instructor, especially those that are nervous! I really enjoyed my lessons and thanks to Jamie I passed first time!

When I was looking to choose my driving instructor, I needed someone who was going to be really patient and take their time while also still pushing me to get the results.
I needed an instructor who was flexible with my time scales due to my work so this was a must!
.
Mark Jordan Driving managed to find me a slot with Jamie that fit in with my timetable. Jamie was so understanding of my workload and was always willing to push lessons back 15 mins etc.
.
I found learning to drive with Jamie a really nice experience, I loved my lessons. He was really calm and patient with me and we were always able to have a giggleโ€ฆ something I think is important!

His teaching methods were incredible, when I didnโ€™t understand something he would explain in different ways until I did. Always giving me the choice of what level of support I need etc. And being very reassuring when I was confused or struggling with something.

Overall, Iโ€™d recommend Mark Jordan Driving to anyone! Super instructors who really care about their pupils.

The most important points for me when starting my driving lessons were good value for money, an instructor that would make driving easy and effective and reviews which were fantastic.
.
For the first few lessons I was very nervous which did show in my driving but with Richards calm and confident instructing put me at ease.
.
My Instructor Richard was fantastic he taught me everything effectively and safely which gained me a lot of confidence. also found quite a lot of similar hobbies that we liked so would talk about that quite a bit. Richardโ€™s tutoring is very unique and effective which made driving easier and so simple.
.
I would recommend Mark Jordan Driving School to anybody that is wanting to drive, also to people out there feeling nervous about driving a car, as they use effective tools and guide you in the right direction to gain confidence from the start.
.
Thanks to Richard and the team and I will miss Thursdays but thankful to finally be a passed driver.

When choosing a company to help on my journey to passing my test Mark Jordan Driving School managed to tick all of the boxes I was looking for.
They were extremely flexible to the hours I was available and would work alongside me in reaching the goals we would set out for myself.
.
I had Richard as my driving instructor, not only was he patient with my development as a learner , but he managed to keep me calm whenever I was nervous when driving.
On my first lesson with Richard I was able to settle in quickly as he was able to make me feel comfortable in the drivers seat. I believe that Richard is an amazing instructor when it comes to supporting you with your development up until your test.
I never had any worries or queries that I never thought I couldnโ€™t approach Richard with, he would listen to whatever I had to say and would support me with any questions that I had in a lesson.
.
I believe that having an instructor with Mark Jordan Driving School will also give you a lot of opportunities for personal growth.
Starting these lessons I believe I have become a more confident person and have been able to overcome challenges. Learning to drive was a scary thought at first, but once being sat in the car on my very first lesson Richard was able to talk me through everything and make me feel so comfortable when learning in any environment.
.
Me and Richard were able to get along well and we were able to discuss anything on our minds, ranging from our pets to our favourite holidays. Being able to talk to my instructor like that would make me feel I was stepping into a welcoming environment and would be calm when driving.
Any mistakes that I made were discussed and improved on and I was able to make swift improvement in my development. Richards teaching methods were always really good. He would explain any task to me in a way that I would understand.
.
Whenever I had a question about a task he would explain to me and be patient with me when learning. Every lesson I came back from, I believe I had learnt something new.
.
I would highly recommend Mark Jordan Driving School. I have come away from these lessons , passing my test first time. Iโ€™m highly grateful for all of the support Richard has provided me with and owe him many thanks for helping me pass my test. I could not recommend this Mark Jordan Driving school enough, they are well and truly amazing.

Based on my research behind Mark Jordan Driving School and their very successful pass rate, alongside the many reviews which were highly positive, this influenced my decision when I chose to have lessons with this driving school. I am very pleased with this decision as I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson, and felt I got the correct teaching.
โ€“
Once my lessons began, I started to recognise how professional and friendly my instructor was. My instructor was Mark Jordan, and he never failed to make me feel comfortable and at ease behind the wheel. I enjoyed his methods of teaching as it was easy to understand and learn, and I never felt under pressure when I got something wrong. I also was pleased with their methods on giving back feedback and the logbook that was filled in at the end of every lesson. I struggle to retain the information, so having the logbooks emailed me to me at the end of every lesson assisted me on my driving journey.
โ€“
Because I am a slow learner, my expectations before my driving lessons I felt were going to be stressful, I didnโ€™t want my instructor to get impatient with me and pressure me, however I did not get this response at all. Mark was very patient and understanding with me, and I was able to learn to control my nerves and deal with stressful situations safely and effectively.
โ€“
Overall, I would recommend Mark Jordan Driving School to anyone and everyone. I believe everyone can benefit from their teaching methods and highly professional, and engaging driving instructors. I was able to pass FIRST TIME, with only a few months of lessons!! I do not regret my decision in choosing Mark Jordan Driving School.ย

What helped my decision in choosing Mark Jordan Driving School came from reading the positive reviews on how engaging and supportive the instructors were, as well as an excellent pass rate. This was important to me as I wanted to ensure I was getting the best teaching and to pass first time!
โ€“
Other factors which I found very positive was the professionalism and reliability. I was able to re-visit each lesson due to the feedback and notes sent after every single lesson via email, this assisted me incredibly well during my lessons as I could identify my strengths and weaknesses, and set myself goals to complete for the following lesson. I found this highly useful and feel I progressed much quicker due to having access to the information from every single lesson from day 1.
โ€“
I had no expectations prior to my driving lessons, however once they began, I thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive and felt it was a beneficial experience when learning with Mark Jordan Driving School due to their effective methods of teaching. I found the experience not too difficult due to the breakdown of every step, but just enough to keep my brain flowing and allowing the information to build up as the lessons progressed. Learning to drive was slightly nerve wracking at first, however I became more and more confident because of the friendly attitude I received within the lessons.
โ€“
My driving instructor was Mark. He was very supportive and patient with me from beginning to end. My confidence improved majorly, and I believe that is all down to Mark as he encouraged me during every lesson. I never felt pressured or misunderstood, and I was able to pass first time!
โ€“
The teaching methods I felt really helped me, I understood every explanation explained massively, and was able to ask questions and receive in depth answers back. I enjoyed learning with the techniques and feel they really benefited me. โ€“
I would definitely recommend Mark Jordan Driving School! I believe their teaching methods and instructors are suitable for everyone, as they are friendly, supportive and their methods are very helpful! I was able to pass first time, with very little nerves due to an increase in my confidence!
