    Name:                Mark Warr

    Area:                   Worcester 

    Qualifications:  DSA Approved Driving Instructor, MSA

                                LGV class 1and 2, Motorcycle, CPC in road transport,

    Drives:               Ford Fiesta (Blue)

 

My aim is to provide a safe, relaxed and friendly learning environment, which I have found, helps my pupils learn their driving skills more quickly and that they look forward to lessons. I find that this approach attains high standards of driving resulting in a first time pass, and the skills that are learned with me are then carried on long after passing the driving test, enabling drivers to deal with situations that sometimes don’t occur whilst a learner.

Before becoming a driving instructor I was involved in the road transport business and I’m also a keen motorcyclist and I find that this knowledge of driving cars, lorries and motorcycles both here and abroad gives me a good insight of how other road users perceive things, and I’m then able to pass this knowledge on to my pupils hopefully making them a safe driver for life.
