Standard Lesson Length
Generally, when having weekly lessons I suggest having a slot for two hours as opposed to only a single hour. In doing so, we can get a lot of ground covered and if you are a beginner this is vital seeing those first few hours would incorporate a lot of the foundation work for learning.
I do not charge extra after 6pm, weekends, or bank holidays. My rate is the same no matter when you have your lesson. As well, my standard prices will remain unchanged throughout the duration of your time with me, regardless of increases in fuel costs, etc. However, I have no control over the DVSA test fees, should they increase, and so may be reflected in the booking of your test.
Lessons are never 'piggy-backed'. This means that - unlike some other instructors out there - I won't get you to pick up my next pupil on your way home as you finish the lesson. You have paid for the time with me, not to share it with anyone else; that time is yours, and yours alone.
Intensive Driving Courses
FREE DRIVING TEST offered for 20hr, 30hr & 40hr intensive driving courses with Markus Driving Instructor.
Before we set out specific dates for your intensive driving course, you must have have passed the theory test. We cannot book a practical driving test for you until you hold in your hands that all-important Theory Pass Certificate.
When we then schedule your course, we both decide how best to plan it. Depending on the amount of agreed lessons, each in-car driving lessons needs to be somewhere between 3 and 8 hours per day. Incidentally, your course doesn't have to be taken in only one week. I am always happy for it to take longer because I understand you may have work and family commitments.
Although I'm always flexible in terms of lesson duration, dates, and times, your intensive course needs to be arranged around other pupils' arranged lessons. So I would suggest that you don't book time off work until we’ve confirmed appropraite dates between us.

Please note: intensive driving courses are for BOTH Tunbridge Wells and Hastings driving test centres.
