Driving Instructors in Swadlincote - Mark Jordan Driving

Read Sam's Review

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 Mark Jordan Drivingย 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.

When choosing a driving school, I looked into which schools were highly recommended and what reviews had to say.
With Mark Jordan Driving being the most highly rated and having the best reviews, I decided to book my first block of 4 two hour lessons, this is another reason I wanted to learn with this school as I thought having the extra time would benefit me and it definitely did.
Learning to drive was quite difficult to begin with for me as I wasnโ€™t great at remembering exactly what to do, but Mark my instructor always allowed time for me to go over whatever I needed and didnโ€™t rush me to go into new things when I didnโ€™t feel ready.
I also had one of the instructors that Mark was training (Phil) with us for a few lessons who was lovely too and although he wasnโ€™t my instructor I would recommend him as well as he was also easy to talk to, the same as Mark.
Mark also used an ipad to explain certain driving things and show me pictures of some of the more difficult roundabouts and other parts of burton which really helped. I really enjoyed learning with Mark as he also allowed me to decide what I wanted to do/learn each lesson.
During one of my lessons with Mark he also had to teach me how to deal with a break down which was very useful incase I need to know in the future๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฌ.
I would recommend this driving school, especially Mark himself to anyone looking for lessons, he always made sure I was comfortable enough to ask questions even if we had been over it many times before ( parallel parking, sorry Mark)
I would definitely recommend Mark Jordan Driving school for lessons if you want a reliable and calm instructor that makes you feel comfortable from the very first lesson.
Thank you Mark for the lessons, building my confidence up and helping me achieve a first time pass.

Read Amy's Review

Mark Jordan Driving School have offered me a wonderful and exciting driving experience and helped to pass 1st time.
I have really enjoyed the experience and recommend to anyone who is worried about learning to drive or just wanting to drive in general. My instructor Richard Wall gave me the confidence and reassurance throughout my time with the driving school. I liked how friendly and understanding Richard was towards me and how he gave clear teaching methods of driving that were simple to learn and follow.
The teaching methods are very effective and give you a great understanding of the highwaycode and the roads.
Overall, I would 100% definitely recommend Mark Jordon Driving School to anyone as they offer brilliant lessons with professional, kind and understanding instructors.
Thank you for getting me through my test Richard, I am truly grateful.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Drive on My First Lesson?

You will definitley drive on yourย first lesson.ย 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 ourย FREE PDFย 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 aย 2 hour lessonย 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 uniqueย Accelerated Learning Systemย 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 aย discount of ยฃ20 based on ourย 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 it works out cheaper.

What Are Your Instructors 1st Time Pass Rate?

We are very proud of our 1stย 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 reviewsย here on our siteย 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,ย 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 siteย 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.
