Mark gives driving lessons in Chadderton, Derker, Glodwick, Greenacres, Heyside, Milnrow, Moorside, Oldham, Rochdale, Royton, Shaw, Shawside, Sholver, Springhead, Waterhead, Watersheddings and Newhey.
“Well I’m sure it’s not often Mark gets an over the hill 30-year-old to try and get over the line but this wizard of a guy made it happen. Surprisingly relaxed in the passenger seat, his repeated “watch your speed” may never leave me. Very happy to have used Latics Driving School and can 100% recommend them across all price, knowledge and reliability.”
“Mark is a really good driving instructor, he has stayed patient throughout teaching me on my driving. I’d definitely recommend Mark as your instructor.”
“Mark is everything you’d want in a driving instructor. I’m quite a shy person but felt very comfortable and relaxed whenever in the car with him during lessons. He’s patient, understanding, very knowledgeable and always on time to start lessons. Whenever I had a question or wanted to practice something multiple times, I’d never hear a complaint from him and he always tried to encourage me and made sure to point out the things I was doing well, as well as the things I needed to work on. I’d just like to say a big thank you to Mark, you’re a star! Would definitely recommend to anyone else learning to drive!”
“I would just like to say a massive thank you to Mark for helping me pass. My confidence had been really knocked due to failing my test twice previously and Mark really helped me to become a confident driver. I learnt so much in just one-month worth of driving lessons with Mark Vs months of driving lessons with my previous instructor. I cannot thank Mark enough for all his help and I would highly recommend Latics”
“Learning to drive with Mark was a great experience, he was patient and encouraging throughout. I would happily recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive quickly and in the right way. Thanks a million Mark!”
“Started my driving lessons a few months ago. I was really nervous and shy at first but Mark helped me to gain the confidence I needed. A genuinely nice guy to speak to plus an excellent driving instructor, over the moon that I passed first time after taking lessons with him! Thanks again Mark! ”
“Just want to say a massive thankyou to Mark my instructor who has got me through my test! He helped me so much with my nerves and working around them to calm me down. I couldn’t of done it without him.”
“Mark Dronsfield is a hero, going to miss him. Patient, understanding and caring something you need when you’re learning to drive. Would recommend 100%”
“Mark was a fab driving instructor. He was patient and always clear when learning something new. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!”
“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.
“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 :)”
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
