Meet Mark, your Hastings
Grade A Driving Instructor

Grade A approved driving instructor (ADI), since 2004.

For the past two consecutive Approved Driving Instructor Standards Checks (a government test taken at least every four years for all UK driving instructors) Mark received a Grade A - the highest grade achievable.

Learning to drive is a psychological experience which must be treated on a personal and friendly level as well as professional. This is why Mark offers no pretences that he's a 'company' or a 'driving school'. 

It is Mark, his car (a 2023 SEAT Ibiza FR 1.0), and your future.

Comfort, experience, and the over-all learning process remains paramount, and as the next generation of driver you will be fully prepared for everything and anything that occurs beyond the driving test.

He adds:

"I live in St Leonards and cover the surrounding areas for the Hastings Test Centre, offering intensive lessons and weekly driving lessons . You will have total support throughout the theory test if requested, and of course into the driving test itself. It doesn't have to end there, because you can have further tuition on motorways or completing the Pass Plus scheme.


We can arrange lessons around your own schedule, even on bank holidays (though I don't work Sundays). Lessons are always on a one-to-one basis, which means there's no car sharing. And both pick-up and drop-off points can be flexible, providing it's still within my teaching area and I've had sufficient notice.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!
