... Introducing Marcus

I treat everyone as an individual - each pupil’s learning process is unique to them and being flexible is a must.

We do have a structure to teaching but we use it as a guide, tailoring the finer points of tuition as we go. At Chequers, we also do our best to ensure that every pupil has the opportunity to experience different driving conditions. 

Sometimes we take on a pupil who is transferring from another driving school and if they have been given any poor instruction, it may be necessary to go back to basics. Putting things right and seeing them progress to the standards we strive for is particularly gratifying. And even more so when they pass! I am an enthusiastic member of a local skittles team, I run to keep fit and support Arsenal (other football clubs are available).

Thanks!! - Passed 1st time with chequers, from start to finish they were brilliant, what more can I say!! Friendly, helpful and most importantly great at teaching you how to drive!


Marcus - Instructor - What can I say? Marcus put me at ease immediately and gave me the confidence to not only drive, but to drive well. I cannot recommend Chequers or Marcus enough! At 30 I thought it would be a real up-hill struggle to learn how to drive after all this time. But Marcus always seemed to find a way to correct any issues and now that I have passed I have so much freedom. Thank you is not enough! A+


FANTASTIC!!! - I would just like to say thank very much to Marcus for teaching all there is to know about driving, I would also like to thank Isabel for taking over from Marcus and reassuring and believing in me before I took my test! So thank you very much both of you, you are both wonderful people and you have change my life in many different ways. I would totally recommend you both as you made me feel at ease.

Thanks - Before I tried Chequers, I had failed my test 6 times and had given up hope of passing! I decided to try a new instructor and got Marcus. He was a really good teacher and put me at ease straight away. After 8 weeks of lessons with Marcus I passed my driving test on the 7th attempt! - am still in shock but really pleased. Couldn't recommend him enough!


Best Driving School in the West - My friend suggested I try Chequers. I wish I'd found them years ago! Marcus's patient, friendly yet serious approach to teaching instantly made me feel safe in the car, my driving improved, and I began to relax I actually enjoy driving! I recommend Chequers to anyone wishing to learn how to drive; you'll learn from extremely competent and friendly instructors how to be a safe and confident road user.


Thanks Marcus - I could not have asked for a better driving instructor. Marcus is the most patient guy; he's really funny and makes you feel relaxed. I will miss all the laughs we had, especially when doing emergency stops. He is the reason I passed first time with 3 minors; I would recommend him to anyone! Thank you mate :-)
