Passed with ZERO minors!

I passed my driving test today with ZERO minors! Mark makes lessons enjoyable whilst making you feel relaxed when driving. He is patient and excellent at explaining things not matter how much you are struggling. I actually looked forward to my driving lessons. His prices are also affordable which is a huge advantage!
