“He also let me do a lesson in my PJs”

“Mark Dronsfield was brilliant, so calm and patient with me, he pushed me without being pushy. He also let me do a lesson in my PJs (it was an evening lesson so it’s forgivable) 😀 I’ve always been nervous in cars, even as a passenger so I needed someone who was calming and Latics provided that.

Thank you!!”

Angela Brown

Mark was an absolute pleasure to learn from.

dan-shaw“He was calm and relaxed and made me feel comfortable when driving. I would recommend mark to absolutely anybody, as he made me feel as though I could drive with confidence :)”

Daniel Shaw

I cannot thank Mark enough for his support.

kim jarvis“After having a previous instructor, whose teaching methods I struggled to understand and agree with, I cannot thank Mark enough for his support on the way towards my test. The ”pass in a week course” was strenuous on both of us but he turned up every single day raring to go. While teaching me he took his time and put me right at ease, always quick to reassure me of my driving when things didn’t quite go to plan. He really cared about me passing my test as much as I did and believe that really shows his passion in instructing. I’d highly recommend Mark as a driving instructor, particularly if you’ve had a bad experience with a previous instructor and want brilliant training.”

Kimberley Jarvis

I would like to give a massive thanks to Mark Dronsfield.

Dominic Oakes“I would like to give a massive thanks to Mark for all the hours he helped me with my driving and gave me the confidence to pass my test first time! He has a lot of patience and helps you to radiate confidence while driving, I don’t think I would have gotten this far and passed first time if it wasn’t for him. I would really recommend him to any friends, family or strangers who are looking to learn to drive! Thank you again!”

Dominic Oakes

I passed my test first time with Mark Dronsfield!

Steph Goulden“I feel he was a very good driving instructor who was easy to get along with and made driving fun and simplified things, so I was fully able to understand and as he was a friendly person I feel this made my driving lessons much easier. Mark was a very fair driving instructor and told me if I was doing anything wrong and what I was doing right, I feel this really pushed me to achieve! I would definitely recommend Mark as he made learning to drive enjoyable and helped me to pass first time something that I never expected!”

Steph Goulden

Mark is Fantastic!

“Mark was fantastic and covered all the bases. He also taught me tips and tricks which were very useful in passing. First time of course! 🙂 Very happy. Everything you want in an instructor. Thanks Mark!”

Mark should be knighted!

“My instructor Mark Helped me pass my driving test…he can help you too!! He should be knighted getting me to pass, never mind instructor of the month haha. In all seriousness though Mark Dronsfield was fantastic, I instantly felt at ease upon meeting Mark and I was very nervous, I had drove before but about 13/14 years ago and I never believed I would pass but Mark changed that. Top guy…Top instructor. Nice one Mark and Thank you.”

Adam Johnson

Mark Dronsfield created a relaxing environment.

Daniel Palfrey“I would like to thank Mark on his professional service and taking me from never sitting in a driver’s seat to passing first time in less than 2 months. He created a relaxing environment that allowed for a more enjoyable learning experience, which in turn led to a quicker uptake in my driving skills. He also let you set your own goals, both before and throughout your lesson, and review your progress at every opportunity. In my opinion he also offered a service above and beyond others, even adjusting his routine to work outside his usual hours to accommodate my requirements. I would happily recommend Mark to anyone else considering learning with Latics and wish him every success.”
