Customer Review Swadlincote – David Passed

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 wasn’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

Customer Review Swadlincote – Catriona Passed 1st Time

I began learning to drive while living away at university but because of Covid hadn’t passed by the time I graduated and moved back home.
I then chose to learn with Mark Jordan Driving on a friend’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!

Customer Review Swadlincote – Sophie Passed 1st 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 giggle… something I think is important!
His teaching methods were incredible, when I didn’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, I’d recommend Mark Jordan Driving to anyone! Super instructors who really care about their pupils.

You Ask - We Answer
Our 6 Most 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 Lessons Per Week?

We strongly recommend having 2 hour lessons.

By having a 2 hour lesson you will learn far more and be test ready in half the time.

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.

What is Your 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.

Do You Offer Block Bookings?


We strongly recommend booking in blocks of 10 hours. This will give you a discount of £4 per lesson 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.

How Many Lessons Will I Need?

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

Using our 'Accelerated Learning System' we find pupils achieve test standard sooner rather than later.

If you book lessons in blocks of 10 hours and at the end of those 10 hours you feel you are not ready, book another 10 and so on until you feel ready and feel you are a safe driver.

If you book in 10's and end up taking your test with paid hours still  left over, we will happily refund the remainder.

Do You Pick 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.

  • Which tutor do you choose, when some instructors are cheap and lack reviews?
  • It’s often a big mistake to choose driving schools in Swadlincote who are the cheapest and buy on price alone. It may cost more to learn in the long run.
  • We are nearby for new drivers and highly rated by our customers which is great news.

Mark Jordan Driving School have been offering driving lessons in Swadlincote since 2012. And have built a reputation of being your local, friendly and patient driving school in the Swadlincote area by new drivers.

Driving Lessons Near Me.

Many customers search for driving lessons near me. But we pick up and drop off in the local area, so we don’t have to be the nearest. Customers will benefit from local family values which has helped with the tremendous success rate of the school. Along with the extremely popular ‘Beginners Deal’ and ‘Money Back Guarantee’ that has been running since 2012.

Safety in Mind.

With fully qualified driving instructors in Swadlincote all operating in the local Burton area including Tutbury, Rolleston and surrounding villages. Who have all been DBS checked and registered for your safety. This means they will be on the register of approved driving instructors ADI.

There is also a choice of both male and female driving instructors depending on your preference that offer advice for nervous learners looking to start their first driving lessons. You will also be able to choose between manual and automatic cars with affordable packages.

Including bundles, block bookings and deals for beginners. Refresher sessions are also available for fully qualified licence holders, should you wish to brush up on your driving skills.

Goal Setting.

The driving tuition offered is client centred, that means you are not told what you are going to do. But you will be able to discuss a plan of action that you are comfortable with. A good example of this would be, where the teacher suggests that a rural drive would be appropriate at your stage of learning within the syllabus. But you may feel that you are not quite ready, and you may prefer to revisit a previous subject for your own reassurance before moving on.

Is ‘Cheap’ Best?

Many students and parents wrongly assume that all driving schools and instructors are the same. And this couldn’t be further from the truth.

The practice of simply choosing lessons on price alone and looking for the cheapest is fast changing.

As so many people are now turning to customer reviews to seek the top tutors before making a purchase. Whether it’s the pupil that is paying for their tuition with their own hard-earned money. Or a parent that has been tasked with finding suitable driving lessons in Burton with a reputable training provider. They will both want the best and most compatible tutor to ensure a successful outcome.

Be careful not to fall into the trap of choosing private instruction on a near me basis. As almost all tutors will offer a pick up and drop off service within the local area and choosing the nearest or nearby is not necessary. It would be wise to seek out those that are top rated, trusted and recommended by previous students.

Finally we DO NOT attempt to compete with “Cheap” driving lessons but compete with customer success.

Your goal is to pass 1st Time, it’s our goal too.
