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.

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.

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 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.

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.

As long as you let your instructor know at the beginning of the lesson or text them the day before they will be happy to help.
