Congratulations to our local students who now have the freedom of the road.

We are delighted that the following learner drivers, who are all from the Brockley area have now completed the learner syllabus and are now proud owners of full driving licences.

“My driving instructor was Mark Sefton. Mark was local to me and his reputation in the area was brilliant and he had great reviews on his website. Also Mark had a calm an relaxing vibe when teaching me which helped.

The price per lesson I thought was under sold on the service you get. Mark had availability to fit me in with perfect timing as he just had a test which passed. My length of lessons was two hours. Some things were more challenging than I had expected – I didn’t expect to find roundabouts so challenging! Mark was a great instructor and I enjoyed every lesson. He is attentive and helpful and provided plenty of explanation when I made mistakes, especially as we got closer to my test.

Absolutely – I would recommend Mark to anyone in the area because he is friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. I have had a great experience learning to drive with Learning Curve Driving School.”

Congratulations to Tom Phillips of Brockley for passing his practical driving test on the 26th of January at his 1st attempt in Hither Green with his driving instructor Mark Sefton.

It’s a great feeling when you have just come back off of a test and the examiner says you passed! It’s a big weight off your shoulders and then on the way home enjoying what you have just achieved, your full UK drivers licence.

Well done to you and best wishes from your driving instructor Mark Sefton and all the team here at Learning Curve Lessons.

“When choosing my driving instructor the most important thing was that the instructor is good at reinforcing knowledge and helping me develop by learning from mistakes and is also be very experienced. They would also need to be very calm and professional.

The driving lessons definitely met my expectations. My driving instructor Mark Sefton’s teaching methods were great, Mark Helped me learn from both good and bad techniques and we made very good progression on the lessons.

I passed first time! I was happy with the service that I received.”

Congratulations to Ben Deloughry of Bermondsey, near Brockley for passing his practical driving test 1st time on the 15th of August at Hither Green Driving Test Centre with his driving instructor Mark Sefton only getting one driver fault.

When Ben told me he had booked his driving test we had only done ten hours I was a bit concerned that it would be hard for him to pass at first.

Ben was moving back to Ireland for a new job so he had to get the driving licence in the last few weeks before going there and he did it with a brilliant drive!!”

 “I found Learning Curve Lessons when searching Google for driving schools in the area. The reviews looked great, and the prices were reasonable, so I decided to book in an initial 2 hour lesson with Mark to see what it was like.

Learning to drive for the first time having never driven before is quite a nerve-racking experience. By the second lesson I found that I was really looking forward to the next one, and I built up confidence behind the wheel much faster than I had expected. This is a testament to Mark’s friendly, calm and thorough approach to teaching. He was always more than happy to cover as much or as little as I was comfortable with in each lesson, and explained everything in an easy to understand and memorable way. After 19 hours of lessons with Mark over a 7 week period (plus 6 hours with another driving school at the beginning), I passed with only 1 minor fault! All in all, I feel I have achieved much more than I thought I was capable of.

Thanks Mark!  Mark has a great method of giving the pupil the reins in terms of what they want to focus on in each lesson, but at the same time makes sure to cover everything that could possibly come up in the test or in real life. This approach gave me a sense of achievement each week, and really made me build up confidence behind the wheel quite quickly. I had a less positive experience with another driving school at the beginning, which really made me appreciate Mark’s patient disposition. Every lesson was based in the area covered by the test centre which was really useful in getting to know the roads, and Mark always offered great tips on specific places to watch out for. The mock test was really helpful too.

I will definitely be recommending Learning Curve Driving School to friends looking for top notch driving tuition and great value for money. Patience and positivity are crucial when learning to drive, and Mark has absolutely nailed this! . to improve  I really couldn’t fault much at all as it was a brilliant service. If I had to nitpick, I’d maybe say that communication via text could be a bit clearer and quicker when looking to book in lessons, but totally understandable as I know Mark is a busy man!”
