My name is Mark James and I am now entering my 20th year as a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor. In 2014 I achieved full marks and Grade A status in the DVSA’s Standards Test.
I am delighted to now be working for SaS Elite Driver Training which is a first class company working primarily along the North Norfolk Coast. This means that I will not only be covering Norwich, but also Holt and its surrounding areas including Foxley, Taverham and Drayton. For any existing pupils currently on Drive and Pass me special promotions, gift vouchers etc, these will be fully honoured, and all Drive and Pass me services featured on this website will continue as normal, but under the SaS banner. I will be conducting driving tuition in exactly the same way.
I am a member of the Driving Instructors Association, and in 2007 passed the DIAmond Special Driving Test, which is regarded by many as the hardest Driving Test in the Industry, allowing just 2 driving faults during a 90 minute drive. You can read more information here - Advanced Driver Qualifications. All their Members are covered by the DIA's Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurances and signed the DIA code of conduct.
According to the DVSA, a pupil will require an average around 48 hours of Professional Training with a Qualified Driving Instructor, combined with private practice. Standard lesson prices can be as much as £30 per hour with some Companies, so at £52 for a 2 hours lesson, SaS offers exceptional value for money.
Vince Bassi qualified over 4 years ago as an ADI, having been taught by Mark James. He is a friendly, calm and patient driving instructor with an impressive record of his students passing their test first time. Vince also covers Norwich and the surrounding area.
