What can I say about Top Marks?? He is a brilliant teacher. He believed in me when I didn't believe in myself and encouraged me to achieve something I didn't think I could do rite now. Mark is such a lovely guy who makes you feel comfortable from day one and really does teach you how to drive and anyone whos looking to drive will definatly benefit by having you as their instructor. So thank you again I dnt think I could have made it with out you

I can’t even begin to express how fantastic of an instructor Mark is. I’m an extremely nervous driver, but while learning with Mark he’s been so patient and informative, taking his time to teach me how to drive safely and efficiently.

I took my test a few hours before leaving this review with the confidence that I would do well, and I passed first time! I would 100% recommend Mark to anyone learning to drive no matter their ability. As someone who’s been scared of driving, I’ve absolutely loved these lessons. Thanks Mark!

Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor- so calm and patient which really helped my initial nerves! Really enjoyed all the lessons; I passed first time with Mark and couldn’t recommend him highly enough. I will miss all our chats! Thanks so much again Mark

Cracking driving instructor anyone who can get Jess to drive has got to be some kind of miracle worker lol, being serious though he instils calmness and is brilliant at getting across what you are supposed to be doing and that is the reason he managed to allow Jess to pass her test on her first time round.

The best driving instructor you will find
You feel nervous? He will calm you down...
You drive reckless .. he will tell you
Could not have asked for any one better to teach me how to drive...
He transformed my previous driving patterns and made me feel at ease.. all bad habits were removed and I passed on his constant belief that I could do so 
I will for ever be thankful for what Mark help me to achieve
He will get to know YOU as a driver and get to know what makes you calm and what makes you tick and he will help you along your journey
Thank you Mark ... everyone knows how long it took me to get here ... you were the one to help me through it all... this sounds dramatic but it is so true ahaha ... best of luck to you and your future students.

Brilliant instructor-just passed first time today! Made me very comfortable and he really tailored the lessons to me. Very clear and made learning much less daunting. All round lovely guy and I'm incredibly grateful. I've already recommended to 3 other people, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to more! Thankyou!

Hands down the coolest driving instructor around with his Top Gun look whilst making sure I passed my driving test first time. Brilliant instructor, doesn't mess about and there's a reason it's called 'Top Marks'.
Really enjoyed learning to drive and will miss our banta! Thank you for everything!

So happy to have passed my test, Mark was awesome and so relaxed even when I panicked and screwed up on the roundabouts! Definitely recommend him to every one (already have been)

Thomas Daniel Howitt

10 March 2015

Tried two other driving instructors before Mark and struggled to stick at it long enough to take my test and pass it. However, there was never a moment where I wanted to give up with Mark as my instructor. Very genuine and friendly guy that instantly makes you feel at ease. I'm very grateful for the approach that he takes and the effort he puts in to teaching you exactly what you need to know. Would've certainly struggled to and frankly, wouldn't have wanted to have passed with anyone else as my instructor. Thanks Mark! See you on the road.

Ruth Ashby

22 August 2018

Couldn't of asked for a better driving instructor, I had no confidence and was an extremely anxious driver. Mark has been patient and well understanding through the whole year and a bit I've been having lessons with him, and I passed first time today! I would seriously recommend mark to anyone looking to pass with confidence!!

Rhian Elizabeth Daniell

18 May 2016

I tried two other instructors before Mark, compared to others he really boosted my confidence and made me believe in myself. He not only wants you to do well but also wants every driver to be safe on the roads. Thank you Mark for your time and your patience. I shall miss our lessons every Monday and Thursday! See you soon!

I can't thank Mark enough for all his guidance and instructions and getting me to the standard of passing my test first time. He is very conscientious and is keen to help you reach your potential with his thorough and patient attitude. I didn't once feel intimidated by him and was put at ease by his kindness and wicked sense of humour. I would definitely recommend Top Marks Driving Skool to anyone. If you want a top bloke who can provide a top quality service then Mark Connors is your guy. Thank you Mark, from the bottom of my heart.

Would like to thank mark for all his hard work. It's not an easy thing learning to drive as I discovered ! But mark made the lessons fun and is the most relaxed patience man ever and helped me overcome the fears of driving and got me to past standard with ease !!.... Couldn't recommend him enough, you really made the experience fun, thank you!!

Working with mark was a great experience. We had many laughs and makes my driving lessons easier which and in turn keeps me calm and stops me freaking out. I could not recommend a better instructor than mark. I would highly recommend mark being your first driving instructor and thank you mark.

Steven Blakeway

Great Driving instructor, really tries to accommodate for every pupil he has with as many lessons as you need, great experience and can not recommend highly enough, picked Mark due to great recommendation from other people who Mark has taught and didn't disappoint, thanks again.

Owain Jones

I've been a pretty nervous learner, but Mark's calm and patient demeanour definitely helped me get confident enough to calm down and pass my test. I've been taught by several instructors, each of which had different ways of teaching manoeuvres and observation/planning tricks. Mark's teaching is the stuff that's stuck for me! Friendly and laid back bloke, will definitely recommend to anyone in Aber looking for an instructor. Diolch Mark

Tom Griffiths

21 January 2015

What can I say, a pleasure to have lessons with! Understood what works best through a patient and methodical approach. Puts you at ease the moment you first meet him and carries it on throughout the lessons. The attention to detail makes sure you're ready for the test and answers any questions you might have. Would highly recommend and is one of the best instructors about! Thank you.

Mark is an amazing instructor. He is not just skilled but very thorough and patient especially with drivers who find driving very intimidating. The best thing about him is his optimistic and positive approach in teaching his students so each individual can learn in his/her own time!...I would highly recommend Mark to any one who wants to learn how to drive!

Carl Thomas

Great experience with Top Marks, which enabled me to pass first time! He showed flexibility with lessons and his method of teaching ensured I passed on my first attempt! I'd highly recommend Top Marks for anyone who is looking to begin driving in Aberystwyth!

Nothing much more you can say than that Mark is an excellent driving instructor, he has been instrumental in bringing a calmness to my driving that wasn't present before I sought his tuition, lessons are always enjoyable. Good spins all around.

Mark is an amazing instructor with great patience. I just passed on my first attempt and could not recommend him more!!!

Ben Grantham

Brilliant instructor, friendly and genuinely cares about helping people develop confidence on the road. By investing in his tuition you're learning how to be a safe driver for years to come and not just learning how to pass the test. If I continue on to Pass Plus I'll be giving him a call once again!

Mitchell Moore

Massive thanks to Mark for putting up with the most impatient person ever- the lessons were really constructive. Thank you for all your help!

Aditya Bhat

Mark is a great instructor with excellent observation skills. He is very sharp and attentive, which means it is possible to iron out even the most minor of flaws in your driving. Mark's standards being higher than test standards makes you more prepared and less intimidated during the test. The lessons are always motivating and encouraging. I wouldn't think twice before recommending Mark. If you want to learn driving, why not learn from the best

Mark MacArtney

An excellent teacher with great methods. Informative and easy to get along with, couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Aled RT Hughes
