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 P is truly the best instructor you could ask for, patient, firm and won’t get angry if you make a mistake. He has continually supported me and got me through my driving test despite the fact I was incredibly nervous and was therefore prone to making mistakes. Couldn’t have done it without you Mark!

Jessica Louise Currey

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!

Toby Penney

Mark P was a very communicative instructor who was always there for driving lessons and giving me feedback on how I could improve.

Mark P is the best instructor I’ve had, he tells you what you’ve done wrong so you know what to correct. He is never annoyed at you even when you make the biggest mistakes, overall he’s a very nice guy. He can hold a good conversation and I found I had a lot in common with him, has good taste in music.

Couldn’t ask for a better instructor, take my advice and go with him

I had Mark as my instructor. Despite COVID preventing lessons from taking place he has helped me to pass my test first time with only one minor fault from next to no driving experience when I started learning to drive. Lessons are professional and tailored to the student’s needs, which makes the process 10x easier. Highly recommended!!! 🙂

Would highly recommend, helped me pass both my theory and practical driving tests first time, definitely deserves 5 stars for this.

Timmi Thurkettle

Booked all my lessons and test with Mark Ponsford. He was very patient with me and helped me learn at a pace where I felt like I was making progress but didn’t feel overwhelmed with what I was being taught. It was particularly helpful that when I asked a question he would answer it in a way that made me think about and understand the answer for myself, I never felt like I was just going through the motions of learning to drive. Overall I would recommend him and Supreme for learner drivers
