I chose Mark Jordan Driving school through a recommendation.
I was quite nervous to drive but my instructor Mark put me at ease straightaway, enabling me to make quick progress.
He was completely reliable, which was very important, and the 2 hour lessons which he offered allowed me to really develop my skills.
His demonstrations and phrases like ‘tyres and tarmac’ are things I will remember for a long time as a driver.
I would without any hesitation recommend Mark Jordan Driving school.

Mark Jordan Driving School has helped me immensely to become a confident driver, originally being nervous and having to switch between instructors midway through my learning due to unfortunate circumstances but they have been there to help me every step of the way and work through it and adapt to my unique situation in short notice.
I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking to get into driving lessons, the 2 hour lessons they provide instead of 1 hour lessons are extremely helpful in getting the most out of each lesson.
A big thanks goes out to Richard who was very patient with me and helped me get over the finish line to finally pass my test, they’ve been incredibly helpful and provided clear instructions with a positive attitude all the way through the process and made me a really confident driver.
Thanks for everything!

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 Your Driving Test Guarantee'
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.

How Many Driving Lessons Will I Need?
One of the first questions parents and pupils ask. So we’ll be honest… It’s when you feel safe and confident enough to be able to drive without any help from your driving instructor. This includes carrying out all the manoeuvres that are in the driving test, being able to navigate with and without a Sat Nav and negotiate some of the busiest roundabouts and dual carriageways Burton has to offer.
Our instructors are highly trained and will know when you are ready, so they will work with you to help you get to that stage, helping you become more confident so you are not making mistakes, the closer you get to this stage, and the more can drive on your own the more you will realise when you are ready.
How Much Will driving Lessons Cost?
This all depends on the above, some pupils will pay more than others, just because we all learn differently. Some pupils can pick it up in 20 lessons, others it will take longer, so will need to budget for more lessons as they progress.
Don’t just buy cheap driving lessons, this could cost you more in the long run.
