after going with a different instructor and then coming to mark I really believe he is the best at what he does, so thorough, always has patience and goes out of his way to make sure you have the best understanding of what your expected to be doing, could not recommend him enough �

Brilliant driving instructor would recommend to anyone, told me I’d pass first time and I did, easy to learn with and worth the wait

Joshua Harrison

Passed first time with mark, would recommend to anyone. He managed to boost my confidence as a driver as I was messed about with other instructors before. Can’t give him enough credit for all the effort he has put in.

Mark is a cut above. He not only is a wonderful driving instructor he also has an ability to fully understand his pupils individual needs to get them ready for the road.

I was lucky to have been taught how to drive by Mark and after all the drama of canceled tests and changing test centres last minute he helped keep me level headed and focused.

Mark is a huge advocate of preparing you for not only your test but for real world safe driving. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who is considering learning how to drive.

It does not matter what level of experience, your confidence or if you have had bad experiences in a car before. He is in my mind the best instructor in the region.

Omg I’ve just passed 1st time with Mark, I would definitely highly recommend him to anyone, it’s taken me some time to get here but if it wasn’t for Mark pushing me, I would of kept putting it off, I have had a few instructors in the past but it seemed like Mark was the only 1 pushing me, thank you once again Mark I bet you glad I’m out the door now lol

Courtney Hurley

Mark was an excellent instructor who taught me how to drive safely. Couldn’t of had a better instructor, I felt comfortable and relaxed in the car with him and he helped me to get my license!! Thankyou so much

Liam Harris

Passed first time with Mark, he was a dedicated instructor who helped me pass my practical test first time but he also went out of his way to help me with the theory too. He helped to make me feel confident while driving and he’s one of the easiest people in the world to talk to. When I passed he was so happy for me which showed he truly cares about his students and the results they get! Thank you so much Mark!

Aaron Smith

Mark is a excellent and very patient instructor when I went to him after my other 2 driving instructors done pretty much nothing for me he taught me everything within a few lessons. The one thing with mark is he doesn’t give up or just let you get on with it and always remembers what you did last lesson I totally recommend him as your first and only driving instructor. YOU WILL PASS. It’s been a pleasure for me to be taught by him and I have enjoyed it also. he’s like a mate so now I have passed there is a seat empty grab it while you can he’s in high demand as he is the best instructor on the island. one last thing. Thank you mark.

Grant James

Just passed first time with mark today. I highly recommend him as a driving instructor. I don’t think I could of felt more comfortable and relaxed whilst learning to drive beside him. He pushes you to your limits and gets the best out of you for the best results. He’s a great guy. Couldn’t go wrong. I enjoyed every minute driving beside him.
Thank you mark!

REVIEW BY MARTIN JENKINS
I cannot recommend Mark and Alert School of Motoring highly enough !
6 stars !
11 out of 10 !
When I started my training with Mark at Alert School of Motoring I think it is fair to say I was at rock bottom! I had been trying to get my licence on and off for well over 10 years. 
My confidence was shaken and my nerves were shot. I absolutely hated driving !
Mark turned all that around from the outset he was incredibly perceptive as to what I needed in order to help me move forward and tailored my training around that. Which along with his especially calm demeanour and teaching style soon had me relaxing and before I knew it I was looking forward to getting into the car and driving.
Marks teaching is brilliant he combines a really good balance of complete professionalism with a down to earth no nonsense but very calm and friendly approach to driving. Each and every lesson no matter how challenging I found it, I always came away with a sense of achievement. Feeling that I had progressed and was moving closer towards my goal. Mark makes things simple and straightforward. For example manoeuvres which previously had seemed to be made up of multiple confusing steps were striped back to just a few simple easy stages which worked like a dream ! For everything Mark always had a little tip or trick that just made things fall in to place.
You can always rely on Mark to keep you safe. He is always one step ahead of you, as though he has a sixth sense and eyes in the side of his head ! This takes a lot of worries away and pressure off. However at the same time he’s always challenging you never letting you get complacent, you never feel like he’s driving for you and there are no boring or repetitive lessons. Mark’s always building your skills and moving you forwards ever closer towards that pass !
You can tell that Mark enjoys what he does for a living and takes a real pride and joy in seeing his pupils succeed.
Thank you Mark so much for what you have helped me to achieve.
You have helped change my life for the better.
If you can teach me to drive and get me through my test the way that you did you can do the same for any one !

CHEERS MARK FROM MARTIN

When I started lessons I was scared to drive, I’d crashed my car and didn’t think I’d ever drive again. It only took a few lessons with Mark and I was comfortable to be in the drivers seat again. Learning to drive is one of the best things I’ve done.

Guido Spocchia

Well where do I start !! I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me mark!! Without you I would not have done this today. !!!!!!

Rachel-Louise ‘Martin

Highly recommend Mark to anyone whose looking at learning to drive, he has the patience of a saint! I learnt with him for roughly 8months and passed first time, he put my nerves at rest and made me realise I can do anything if I put my mind to it! He’s a great laugh in the car and makes you feel comfortable. He’s definitely always right!

Millie Jackson

I would highly recommend Mark to anyone wanting to learn to drive. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor, he made me feel at ease when I felt nervous and was very patient. He helped with my confidence by being so positive when I didn’t believe I could do it. Thanks Mark!!

Kye Gooch

When picking a driving instructor I was looking at reviews online & Alert instantly caught my eye & I can see why! Mark is genuinely a nice guy & so easy to a get on with but at the same time very professional & I’d highly recommend Mark to everyone who is looking for an instructor!
