Driving instructors in Swadlincote - Erin Passes first time

Customer Review Swadlincote – Erin Passed 1st Time

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 you’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 he’d be really strict but I genuinely couldn’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 wouldn’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. You’ll never feel anxious or unsafe and you’ll get the best teaching to get you to that pass. I passed this week first time and I can’t thank Mark enough for making this possible.

driving instructors in Swadlincote - Eleanor passes driving test

Customer Review Swadlincote – Eleanor Passed 1st Time + ZERO Faults

When choosing my driving instructor I wanted someone who would be patient and understanding as I was extremely nervous about learning to drive.
My driving instructor was Jamie Sharp at Mark Jordan Driving School who was incredible at making me feel at ease from the very first lesson. He reassured me from the start that I was more than capable and promised that he would get me test ready, and I finally passed today with zero faults!!
I can’t believe it. Thanks to Jamie learning to drive was so fun and enjoyable and I looked forward to my lessons each week. He tailored the lessons to whatever I needed and was patient and kind in advising me where things went wrong and how to improve on / correct it.
Jamie is your friend as well as your driving instructor which makes you feel so much more relaxed, and I felt I could ask questions about anything I needed help with.
I would definitely recommend Mark Jordan Driving School and particularly Jamie Sharp to anyone who is looking to start driving and is feeling especially anxious or on edge. He will take the time to build your confidence and get you to a place where you feel safe and happy to be driving. Thank you for helping me to pass first time.

Customer Review Swadlincote – Stacia Passed 1st Time

I started lessons with Mark Jordan Driving in January as an experienced driver and have managed to finally pass my test today, after learning to drive for 4 years with other schools.
I chose Mark Jordan Driving as I was recommended by a friend of the family.
The reviews were very good and I am very happy I chose to go with this company and extremely pleased with the instructor I had (Richard) he was very patient, had a great sense of humour and was always willing to help!
He helped build up my confidence and made me believe in myself. He is by far the best driving instructor I have had. I would highly recommend Mark Jordan Driving if you wanted to start driving as you always feel welcome, they have a lot of patience and will work at the speed that’s best for you.
They’re also very reliable and punctual. Overall I am grateful for the time spent with Richard and thank you again for helping me pass!

Our 6 Most 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 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 £6 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, ensuring you become a safe and confident driver.

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