Business overview

High grade instructor with over 12 years experience

I have been a driving Instructor for over 12 years

covering all of Cambridge, Newmarket and surrounding villages.

Over the years I have taught a wide range of people to become more confident, alert & defensive drivers

from the age of 17-70 including beginners, refresher lessons, foreign driving licence holders,

lessons for nervous drivers, nervous beginners, motorway tuition, & pass plus students.

A qualified Driving Instructor with lots of experience with a high grade from the

Driving Standards Agency (1-6 with 6 being the highest) will mean fewer lessons and save you lots money and time.

If you would like any other information on applying for a provisional driving licence,

driving lessons, lesson pricing and discounts at our driving school

call/text/email or leave a message and you will be contacted as soon as possible.

Fantastic instructer!

Mark was recommended by a friend, I passed first time with only 3 minors, Mark will teach you how to drive and not just how to pass your test! Would definitely recommend him!

Don't waste your time!

- Claims to be a patient instructor, but will have no issue suggesting another instructor and cutting you off if he can't be bothered anymore.
- Has very low availability, which is unhelpful if you aim to pass your test quickly.
- Complains if you cancel your lesson under 48 hours before it is due, but has no qualms about cancelling your lesson under 2 hours before it is due.
- Wasted lesson time waiting for him to refill his car with petrol or waiting for him to go into his own house to use the toilet (up to 5 minutes of the lesson time eroded!)
- Little route differentiation between lessons, went along the same roads pretty much every time.
- Will try and charge you for the lesson if you cancel and he doesn't receive the message (despite admitting he was having phone problems).
- Will shout at you if you make an error, so nervous drivers look elsewhere.
Good luck driving, but I'd recommend looking elsewhere!
