Mark Allen ADI

Hi, my name is Mark Allen owner of Mrk1 driving school,

I have been a ADI Approved Driving Instructor for over forteen fast paced but highly enjoyable years.

Grade A - ADI the highest award given to a driving instructor.  Only 29% of ADI's hold such an ability across the country.

    I've grown up in maidenhead and lived here all my life.

    At the young age of 24, I passed my ADI test becoming an approved driving instructor with flying colours and haven't looked back. 

    I have the same energy and enthusiasm that I had back then in seeing my pupils fulfill their dreams and potential with my guidance.

      I have a work ethic of work hard play hard which has never changed.

      The pictures you are seeing are from my 2018 Vacation.

      I strongly believe in team work, communication, and having a great sense of humour to get the most out of learning to drive.

      I operate on a 3-strike rule of respect, If you let me down repeatedly we are done, and you will be replaced immediately.







      Est 2006

      Based in Maidenhead Mrk1 Driving School has gone from strength to strength since 2006. 
      Partially due to the high volume of pupils passing their driving tests 1st time and recommending there friends and family and even work colleagues to start having lessons with me. 

      A BIG THANK YOU to my ex-pupils who still are recommending their family and close friends long after they have passed. 

      MRK1 Driving School was Est. in 2006, Prior to this I was with one of the national driving schools based in the local area. 

      Frustrated and Exhausted with the poor customer care and treatment of my pupils by the office staff, I decided to set up my very own driving school. This way I could Manage my pupils personally and keep them happy and focused on their driving lessons. 

      My aim is to deliver to my pupils in the berkshire area the very highest standard and customer support throughout their driving experience. This is from the 1st lesson through to their theory test and onto their practical test, passing 1st time. And then finally completing their Pass Plus Course.
