Peter Callaghan, West Kilbride
I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. He is fantastic value for money, patient and highly reliable - I would definitely recommend him.
I am really pleased with the service I received. Mark was reliable and always on time, never cancelling a lesson. He was extremely helpful when it came to revising for my theory test and always willing to answer any questions I had. Mark chose varied routes for my lessons which provided me with further experience and built my confidence. This allowed me to book my test sooner, rather than later, and I passed first time!
Liam Simpson, West Kilbride
I highly recommend Mark because he is a fantastic instructor and a top guy.
I am so happy that it was Mark I chose to learn with because from the beginning I felt at ease and was not nervous.
Mark´s instruction was encouraging, helpful and patient - and I passed in just eight weeks!
ASHLEIGH WATSON, AYR
I highly recommend Mark, because he is a brilliant instructor and very easy to get along with. I'm so glad that I chose Mark as I was extremely nervous. He encouraged me and helped boost my confidence. If I didn't understand something, he would go over it until I understood perfectly. I couldn't be more grateful to Mark for helping me pass first time! Thank you so much, Mark. I couldn't have picked a better instructor.
Emma Craig, Kilwinning
Thanks to Mark, I passed my driving test first time!
I would highly recommend Mark, as he was fully committed to teaching me all I needed to know and answering any questions I had regarding driving.
Thank you very much, Mark!!
Nicola Kelly, Saltcoats
I would highly recommend Mark as an instructor for any new learner as I have thoroughly enjoyed being taught by him. He taught everything to the highest possible standard and made lessons enjoyable. I would not have picked anyone else. Thanks for everything Mark - and for putting up with me! If it wasn´t for Mark, I would never have been so calm going into the test so that I was able to pass FIRST TIME!
John Lodge, Greenock
Over the moon at getting my licence! Mark and his AA teaching methods were brilliant and have given me real confidence as a new, young driver.
PS: Don´t think I´ve stopped smiling all day!
Luke Crighton, Ayr

Passing first time, after just over 40 hours of instruction, speaks for itself.
I can now drive to a strong standard with plenty of confidence.
I recommend Mark because everything was successful under his tuition.
Kerry Devlin, Prestwick
I was delighted to pass first time and would recommend Mark due to his patience and excellent training methods.
I´m so proud, I´m the first person in my family to pass first time.
And I just bought a car - woo!!!

Learning to drive with Mark was a thoroughly enjoyable experience in a very relaxed environment. I can safely say that, without him, I wouldn´t be the driver I am today.
Stephen Smith, Saltcoats
Having not had a lesson in 12 years, I was keen to get my driving licence before I got any older but nervous about going through the whole process again. With Mark's knowledge and patience, I was quickly able to enhance my driving skills which gave me even more confidence when sitting the test. He is also a really nice guy, which made the lessons more enjoyable and less stressful. Can't thank Mark enough and highly recommend him.
Marina Wilson, Beith
I would happily recommend you as you have been a great teacher, the skills that you teach are life skills and very helpful. Thanks for all your help. Safe driving.
Liam Robinson, Inverkip
There are certainly worse ways to spend a few hours. Mark provides quality teaching with quality banter. Not only did I get my licence, I also went home with a few stories to tell. And I passed with just one fault.
Robert Ridland, Ayr
I would like to say I´m very happy to have passed and I would like to thank you for the excellent tuition.
Alasdair Eaddy, Beith
I couldn't recommend Mark highly enough. Being a little older than most learners I was a bit nervous of learning, but I was put at ease straight away. Mark's very relaxed, calm attitude made it a pleasure to learn. Really nice bloke and a great teacher.
Andrew Ashley, Isle of Arran
I found my experience of learning with Mark great. He was calm and gave me clear explanation when I was driving. He has a very good understanding of your driving capability as well. I would happily recommend Mark to anyone learning to drive.
Angie Fraser-Moore, Seamill
Over the moon to pass today, just a few weeks before the imminent arrival of my second child! I just can´t thank Mark enough for his dedicated support and immense driving guidance. He enabled me to feel confident and competent to start driving with two kids in tow. Mark brings such a wide spectrum of life experience to his drive that you will struggle to find a more competent and gifted teacher - not to mention the fantastic banter and unforgettable one-liners thrown into the bargain! Thanks again, Mark, really enjoyed the journey :)
Matthew Robertson, Ayr
Thanks for everything you have done for me, Mark. And for being so patient with me. Best instructor in Ayrshire and everyone should use you to learn to drive! Thanks again, Matthew.
Kathryn Burton, Fairlie
Really enjoyed learning under Mark's tuition. It was good fun and I learnt so much. I don't think I could have felt better prepared for my test. Would definitely recommend Mark to anybody wishing to learn to drive. Will actually miss driving under his guidance. Thanks so much Mark! :D x
Iqra Saleem, Wemyss Bay
I never knew there could be such a good driving instructor. The thing I liked about Mark was that he could tell me what type of person I am just by looking at my drive! I will really miss having you to instruct me, and tell me that what I´m calling an anti-grip surface is actually anti-skid!!! Lol!!! It was a pleasure having you as a teacher.
Denni Partepilo, Prestwick
Very nerve racking but totally worth it! Thank you, Mark, for teaching me everything. I will always be grateful. I can´t thank you enough for all your time, help and patience in teaching me to drive and in giving my confidence a huge boost. Thank you from the heart :) You are the best!
David Low, Ayr
Friendly, professional and patient. Mark knew exactly what was needed to get me through my test. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a driving instructor.
Stuart Anderson, Pt Glasgow
I thoroughly enjoyed driving under
tuition from Mark! A great guy, a great instructor with great banter. Mark knew exactly what needed to be worked on and helped make my weaknesses strengths. Thanks to this, I passed first time - and it was all down to the help and tuition from Mark. Thank you!
Ryan Hood, Ardrossan
Just want to thank you for all the time and help you put in for me mate. It´s very much appreciated. I couldn´t have done it without you so thanks again for everything and for making me a better driver.
Julie McClymont, West Kilbride
I feel absolutely amazing! I passed with just one fault! And, yes Mark, I would definitely recommend you - the test was probably easier than one of your lessons! I liked the way you teach, making me ready for all roads. I now feel I could safely drive anywhere, while some of my friends who have passed are still nervous about driving.
Paul Irwin, Kilbirnie
Thank you so much, man! Words cannot describe how happy I am right now and I´ll put that down to your teaching! T´was a pleasure! And I´m still stunned I passed first time - with just three faults!
Alexander Allan, Kilwinning
I can´t thank you enough, Mark. I couldn´t have done it without you. It still hasn´t sunk in. This is life-changing. I´ve never been so nervous, man!

Well, it´s been a hell of a ride! Nearly two years now due to a ridiculous amount of rugby injuries! But I´d just like to say congratulations Mark I knew you could do it from the start! Great driving instructor and a great friend! Cheers, Mark
Jenna Carpenter, Ayr
Thank you for giving a nervous person the confidence to be able to drive anywhere through your brilliant, laid-back but encouraging style of teaching.
Euan Aitken, Troon
"Mark has been brilliant from day one. He offers tailored lessons that focus on areas of weakness and gets a real kick from ´putting you in the sh#t´. Joking aside, this approach builds confidence and enabled me to handle all the difficulties that arose during my test with ease. Happy to recommend Mark to all, and would encourage you to ask about his journalism background... he has some cracking stories!"
Karishma Rogerson, Prestwick
Mark is an amazing instructor - very professional in his approach, very patient and polite. I could not have been better prepared for my test and would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for excellent driving tuition. Thank you Mark, I couldn´t have done it without you!
Cameron Shields, Lochwinnoch
I couldn´t be more pleased with Mark´s teaching. Mark sets you up to be an independent driver. As you approach test, he will also talk to you as you drive, helping you to learn about dealing with in car distractions and the dangers they pose to young drivers. You will learn a lot and feel confident in the car with Mark.
Heather Brown, Canada
I would highly recommend Mark as an instructor and I wouldn´t have passed without him. Thanks again, I´m very pleased!
Laura Falconer, Beith
Passed my test first time today, thanks to the superb tuition by Mark! Easy to understand instructions and a brilliant guy to get along with, which helped a lot!

Now I´m out in the big wide world myself 😂
Emma Dunlop, Dalry
"I enjoyed every second of learning to drive with Mark. He´s a brilliant guy, a great instructor who always has you laughing, puts you at your ease - and has the patience of a saint! I passed first time, with only two faults, but actually feel sad that I´ve passed as I´m going to miss him. Could never thank you enough Mark."

Cameron McCall, West Kilbride
"I started learning to drive with another instructor and did not feel I was learning anything. I also was not enjoying driving. Then my Mum got a recommendation from a friend about Mark. Since my first lesson with Mark I enjoyed my driving every time. Thanks for all your help Mark. It is much appreciated. Looking forward to doing Pass Plus in the new year."
Lewis Fleming, West Kilbride
´Excellent experience learning to drive with Mark. Great guy and knew exactly how to get the best drive possible out of me. Incredibly reliable and had no problems arranging lessons to suit me. I´d recommend him to anyone at any stage of their driving development!´

´Mark is great Instructor and focuses on areas of weakness, which builds confidence and settles any nerves you have. He is a great guy and if you can pass Mark´s lessons, then you will certainly pass your test!´
Josiah Cantor, West Kilbride
´My AA experience was very good and I would recommend Mark to a friend. Everything was well explained and I was shown what to do. Mark is a good choice of instructor to go with.´
Gordon Houston, Ayr
TRAINING with Mark has been a pleasure. Each session feels personalised, as Mark has the incredible ability to know exactly how you tick. He will instruct you to an incredibly high standard and his infectious, dry sense of humour makes you feel right at home in the car. It´s been a long journey for me, but Mark has been there every step of the way, guiding, helping and, at times, counselling me. If it wasn´t for Mark´s guidance and fantastic teaching, I don´t think I´d be holding this certificate today. I can´t recommend Mark highly enough.
Steven Cassidy, West Kilbride
Stunning result! Steven celebrates after passing his test at Irvine with no driver faults!
Joshua Lynn, Stevenston
MY experience of learning to drive with Mark was great and I would definitely recommend him to a friend. His meticulous style of teaching means no stone is left unturned by Test day. I am confident this allowed me to achieve a higher level of drive than that of friends using other instructors.
Samuel Brown, West Kilbride
GOING from zero driving knowledge to passing my test was made as easy and stress free as possible because of Mark. Due to him taking so much time and effort to improve my drive, always making sure I understood the underlying knowledge, Mark has made me the best driver I could imagine myself being. Mark is a great instructor - as his stats for students passing their tests show - and I would extremely recommend him to anyone who is looking to make a safe and confident driver of themselves.
James Carey, Lochwinnoch
´I can´t recommend Mark highly enough. His fantastic sense of humour, combined with the patience of a saint, will definitely have you learning with a smile on your face from the moment you start your first lesson until the day you pass your test. His results speak for themselves!
I passed first time with just 3 faults. Couldn´t have done it without you mate!´
Conor Reid, Saltcoats
´Mark is an awesome instructor. I went from being terrified of being behind the wheel to actually enjoying a drive around! I can easily recommend Mark to anyone looking to start driving!´
Lauren Paterson, Fairlie
´Mark truly was an ideal driving instructor as he knew how and when to push me to get the best possible results and the hard work has definitely paid off. I passed with just two faults and I would highly recommend him!!´
Morgan Dowdells, Portencross
´I wouldn´t have achieved a first time pass without the encouragement and guidance received from such a patient instructor. Would recommend Mark for anyone learning to drive!´
Natasha Carron, Largs
‘I am so pleased at passing first time and I wouldn´t have accomplished this without Mark’s calm and patient manner in the car.
‘He was really able to put me at ease with all situations I encountered on the road. I learnt more about the car and road craft than I needed for the test, which made me even more confident. I would recommend Mark to anyone thinking of learning to drive.’
William Tattersall, Largs
‘Thanks Mark, great start to 2018!’
Tuncay Tatar, Saltcoats
‘Delighted to pass my UK driving test with just two minor faults. In short, just wanted to thank you for teaching me how to properly drive Mark :) Many thanks.’
