Hi, thanks for looking at my profile.

I’ve always had a passion for cars and motorcycles and enjoy sharing my experiences and enthusiasm with my pupils.

I gained my instructors licence through Supreme and using all the latest coaching methods and modern technology I’m able to pass this knowledge onto my pupils, in a calm and friendly manner.

I adapt lessons to suit the pupil, so they can learn at their own pace, which will allow you to achieve a high standard of safe and confident driving and become a skilled driver quickly.

I am very flexible with working hours to suit pupils requirements and look forward to helping you reach your goal. So, If you are looking for calm and enjoyable driving lessons please give me a call.

You will be driving a Ford Focus Titanium Diesel.



Mark’s been fantastic since the start, very patient and funny. Will definitely miss him – thanks for everything Mark 🙂 ????

I highly recommend Mark P! I started lessons with him after doing lessons for over a year with another instructor and Mark got me to where I needed to be to pass first time in just a couple of months. He was very patient and helped me feel so much more confident. Mark is a great instructor and i definitely recommend him!

Big thanks to Mark P for helping me obtain my full driving license, after holding an automatic license for the past 5 years. Less than 3 weeks ago I got in contact with Mark with the view of upgrading to a manual license and today we’ve got the job done! He gave me all the information I needed and made the whole process an absolute breeze, top quality bloke to spend a few hours in the car with and answers every question you have expertly, what a guy! Many thanks Again Mark P, I will without doubt be recommending you to all my family and friends ????

It was a wonderful experience to have lessons with Mr. Mark David Ponsfor. He is so good at what he does and the best part of him is that he will make you feel really comfortable. Mark’s subject knowledge is brilliant that he helped me pass my test with ‘Zero’ faults in the first attempt. All the credit goes to Mark for having instructed me in the right manner. I am very new to UK and hardly knew the rules of the road. Mr. Mark helped me althroughout and within a weeks class, I was prepared for the test. The way Mr Mark conduct the mock test is soo good that it helps you for the real test. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you from the bottom of my heart. Mr. Mark P, is such an amazing coach, and more than that a great ‘Human’. You will be lucky if you get him as a coach. ‘BLESS YOU MARK P’

My instructor, Mark P, was brilliant. He was always supportive, even through any mistakes. Never berating me, just letting me know what went wrong and asking me how I think I should improve.  Flexible with lessons, be it morning or evening, weekday or weekend. Also put great effort into keeping both of us safe through the pandemic.  Ultimately a great guy to be taught by, easy to talk to and helped keeping me calm while driving but always vigilant and ready to keep us safe on the road.  Thanks to him for helping me pass!

Overall I would recommend him and Supreme for learner drivers
