Mark has been really patient and let me learn at my own pace.
Mark has been really patient with me, despite me sometimes looking ok I was nowhere near ready to pass. He made sure I understood everything very clearly and would let me learn at my pace rather than controlling how or forcing me to do certain things quickly and would never rush things. He also took time out of his own Saturdays very often to ensure I was ready for my tests, even if it meant he missed his car shows therefore I cannot thank Mark enough for being my instructor.

Mark is an excellent instructor and has helped me with confidence on the road since he started teaching me how to drive properly, which is a skill I’ll use for a lifetime. Alongside this, Mark is a funny chap and we have interesting conversations about cars, keeping my nerves down during my lessons. Thank you for being such an excellent instructor, I’ll miss our conversations.

I struggled with driving for a while but through persistence and good coaching from Mark I managed to achieve my aim of passing my test. The LDC videos and questions on the hub were a huge help and gave me a good head start before lessons.

I couldn’t be happier
I got on really well with Mark and spent most of our lessons chatting as well as learning which really helped with my nerves. With regards to the teaching, the syllabus was structured in a useful and helpful way to build skills. Lessons were delivered very well and I found his depth of knowledge to rub off on me. I’d highly recommend LDC and my driving instructor Mark chief among them. In summary I couldn’t be happier with the standard and holistic experience of my tuition with a friendly guy.

Thank you so much
Mark is an amazing, patient and understanding instructor. He gave me good preparation for my test and was very knowledgeable. Thank you so much for sticking with me and helping me even when I was challenging. Thank you for being really understanding over the time I’ve had lessons, I don’t think I’d get the same amount of support you’ve given me from any other instructor. You’ve not only taught me to drive but also little ways on helping my anxiety and that will stick with me for life! Thank you so much!!!

A really great experience
I’ve learned with Mark for about 7 months his methods of teaching are through, however with his attitude this makes lessons extremely relaxing and comfortable, I’m able to have a little chat whilst also staying safe. The banter and sarcasm we both used made it a really great experience, he does things some instructors wouldn’t like going on the motorway and certain towns like Shrewsbury. I’ve had a really great experience and can’t thank him enough.

Mark was an excellent driving instructor he made me feel welcome from the get go and helped me get to grips with driving while having a laugh during the way. Lessons were fun smooth and there was always an objective to focus on. The workbook was very clear and helpful and helped me revise when I wouldn’t have a lesson. He was an all round bloke and the lessons were mint.

Very Patient and Understanding
Very patient and understanding of having nerves and doubts. when on lessons the atmosphere was always friendly, calm and chatty which put me at ease. If I made any mistakes I was not made to feel bad or incompetent, I learned from them as his approach was not to make it into a song or dance. Very enthusiastic to help learners to find learning strategies that work for the individual and how he thinks they will benefit.

System catered well to my needs/time requirements. Mark has been a great instructor, giving me the freedom to find my footing and progress well through the LDC system quickly and efficiently. Observations of my driving and how to both rectify and improve my skills has been excellent, allowing me to pass in 18 lessons. Mark sports the purple LDC shirt fabulously and believes he will wear it every day even when not at work.
