Good Listing on Google Maps lost overnight

My Google maps listing for the search term "driving lessons norwich" has always been in the top 3. About three weeks ago it dropped about 40 positions to 4 from the bottom.


I haven't been informed about a penalty or infringement.


its frustrating to say the least as I've focuses a lot of effort on getting my customers to leave their feedback to give a real life account of their experiences.


What doesn't make sense is that my natural Google listing is stil ranked at position 3 for the same search terms.


Is there any way of finding out why this has happened and how I can start to rebuild my ranking?

That's great Helmut but the main search term is "driving lessons norwich". I was in the top three but no longer feature.
