Fantastic instructor, after many attempts and failing my test my confidence was at rock bottom. After one lesson with alert my confidence was boosted and he eventually helped me believe I was actually a good driver. Very flexible, reliable and extremely helpful. With marks support and the free theory training he provides I then passed my theory test again, I then went on to pass my driving test first time with alert. Nearly a year on and I still remember all he taught me. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone I have spoken to who does lessons with alert are extremely happy. Each lesson is always different with a new challenge which helps for the practical test. Very happy should definitely have gone to alert sooner

And a nice car to drive, Thanku mark for helping me through my test

Onistly can say if your think about learning to drive I would choose this man all day long. easy to learn from respectful, someone you can have a bit of banter with and really gives % to anybody willing to learn, very professional,and generally knows what his talking about when it comes to driving that’s why he has such a high pass rate and driving standard cheers mate been fun learning with you

I was extremely nervous when I started my lessons again after years of bad lessons elsewhere, but from the first lesson he put me at ease and never made me doubt myself once!

Best thing iv done for years! thankyou mark!!!
