“When choosing a driving school, my priority was to find an experienced but easy-going instructor that keeps his cool under pressure.

I found exactly that with Learning Curve and, believe me; I put Mark to the test on many occasions! Mark is professional but very laid back which creates a relaxed learning environment that is ideal for somebody navigating London’s busiest streets for the first time.

My experience with Mark reminds me of the classic Simpson’s episode when Bart was held captive in France and, at the end of the episode, realises that he has become fluent in French.

When I jumped into Mark’s car after some time away, I found that he had taught my subconscious to drive without me realising – pretty impressive! I wasn’t stressed about the test because I knew I could drive so well and I aced it!”

The Main Reason I chose Kelvin White Driving School


“My Instructor was Mark Sefton. I liked the website and the reviews where there are lots of first time passes, which is encouraging.

I got Mark’s number from seeing the instructors car driving around. I expected the number of lessons, required before going for the test to be much more than they were.

Thankfully I passed first time with having taken 23 lessons which I am very happy about. Mark’s teaching is exemplary!!!!

Mark is consistently patient, supportive and importantly, thorough in making sure you are really prepared before even booking your test!!

Without a doubt, I will always recommend Learning Curve driving school as my driving instructor gave me confidence that I would be successful in my learning and to pass the test.

I feel all areas of learning were covered thoroughly so I wouldn’t need to improve anything!..Thank you a million times over!!!! :).”

Christina Gomes, Sydenham



“I chose Mark because of of all the driving test passes he had in the local area and was teaching some of my work friends. He was also local to me in Sydenham.

Mark is a great driving instructor, I really enjoyed driving with him. He really taught me the difficult stuff in an easy way. I understood every lesson. He always encouraged me to pass the driving test.

I eventually passed the driving test with him and now I want my friends and family to learn from this brilliant instructor.”

    If you’re looking for a Professional Driving School that comes highly recommended with a particularly high first time pass rate we are the school for you. Learning Curve Lessons serves South East London bringing you the highly trained driving instructors you need to pass your practical driving test.

    Our instructors are male or female with a wide variety of levels of experience, however all bring the very latest techniques & methods to the table. Our highly popular “try us & see” service gives learner drivers the opportunity to see if we are suitable for their needs before booking additional lessons.

    Like many other instructors, we also provide discounts for beginners & new students & we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not entirely happy with our service. We also offer large discounts for block bookings of 10 lessons or more.

    As mentioned in our opening paragraph we are particularly proud of our first time pass rate which is considerably above the national average. What is our secret? We have a proven system that ensures that our driving instructors follow our best practice guidelines & procedures.

    Our structured system will feature a complete plan of action broken down for you so you can see where you are up to with regard to your progress within the driving school syllabus & what you need to do to get to the level where you are ready to take your test.

    Our Instructors will issue you with a report card that will detail each step of your progress. It will demonstrate the areas that you might need more practice whilst also showing the things you are particularly strong with.

    We do encourage practice with family & friends provided it is used in a way that will assist & improve your driving abilities ready for your next lessons. Ideally you would practice the areas that have been highlighted for you on your report card so to reduce the length of time you need to cover them in your actual lessons.

    For example if you are struggling with your three point turn manoeuvre then it would make sense to go somewhere quiet & practice as often as you can whilst out with friends & family. Once you can demonstrate you are able to carry out the procedure confidently & error free then your instructor will then move you on to the next step of the syllabus.

    However if your instructor thinks you need more practice you will continue where you left off until you have mastered it. This example demonstrates the importance of using your practice time wisely.

    You should ensure that you complete your theory examination as quickly as possible. This will benefit you as it gives you a better understanding of the practical side. It will also allow for your instructor to book you in for your test as soon as you are ready without any unnecessary delays.
