About Jeff

Jeff has been an ADI since 2009. He started out part-time until he realised that he had a real flair for instruction.  Jeff then left his job in insurance and became a full-time, professional and patient instructor in Bournemouth. He decided to join YES! Driving School because of the good reputation the company has and the high expectations they require from their instructors.

Patient, Professional who loves to laugh

Jeff always enjoys driving and the challenges it can bring, which is why he enjoys sharing his skills. He understands the worries and concerns of some new drivers. He empathises with a pupil who has anxieties and low confidence for example. Jeff likes to make lessons fun and relaxed to build confidence with his pupils. If a pupil has a particular learning style or requirement, Jeff is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that these are met.  Jeff comes across as a patient and professional personality who also loves to laugh.  His main aim is to produce safe drivers who are prepared for life on the road.

During his free time he likes spending time walking his NINE dogs, relaxing with a film, and the occasional meal out with his wife.

I passed first time with only 2 minors, had Jeff Sullivan as my driving instructor and he was such a good teacher, he taught me everything I needed to know for the test, of your ready for your test he will tell you and book you in he doesn’t but drag lessons out. Honestly one of the best teachers I’ve ever had! I would defiantly recommend to anyone and already have! Thank you for all your help

LAUREN HOUSE from Ringwood, 11th October 2017

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

Amazing instructor, he made every lesson enjoyable and fun. I passed with two minors all thanks to him, Would recommend to everyone.

Sophie Jones from Bournemouth, 23rd September 2017

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

Jeff is a brilliant instructor and I would recommend him to anyone. He is friendly, patient, professional and was never once negative at any point during our lessons. Passed my test first time on the 16th September with just 1 minor and it wouldn’t have been possible without Jeff’s extensive knowledge and brilliant teaching methods. If you want an instructor who you can also have a laugh and a chat with then Jeff is the guy!

Joshua Merchant from Bournemouth, 18th September 2017

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

Brilliant instructor. Never a boring lesson. Got me to pass today with 6 minors. Would definitely recommend. Very glad I learned with him.

Joel Bruce from Bournemouth, 16th September 2017

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

Passed first time with Jeff. With a year break in between lessons when starting uni in a new city. I approached Jeff again and managed to pass over the summer. He’s been very helpful, friendly, patient and positive during every lesson. Very clear guidance and we had a laugh as well! Driving was never boring. Would highly recommend. 🙂

Sophie from Poole, 11th September 2017

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

I had a few driving lessons prior to Jeff and found I was dreading my lessons and had no confidence with my ability so I ended up taking a break from driving completely. A work colleague told me all about Jeff and he couldn’t of come more highly recommended, so i booked him straight away! Jeff creates such a great environment to learn driving in with his terrible jokes and equally bad singing that it takes away any nerves or anxiety over driving so you can just focus on getting you through that test and ready to drive on your own. I can’t thank him enough for making every lesson feel like a huge confidence boost and getting me through my test first time with only 2 minors (and a lot quicker then I ever thought possible!)

Serena from Bournemouth , 18th July 2017

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

I would definitely recommend Jeff as a driving instructor! He makes lessons fun and enjoyable, whilst remaining professional and making sure all areas are covered. Incredibly patient and always on hand to answer any questions, no matter how silly they may be! Very easy to get along with and plenty of laughs along the way! Passed with 1 minor with Jeff’s help, thanks again! 😊

Katy Austin from Bournemouth, 23rd May 2017

Tyler Gregory from Christchurch, 14th November 2016

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

Jeff is brilliant! I was an older learner driver (37yrs old), very nervous after having been in two car accidents in my life as a passenger, I lacked self confidence in my ability to drive. Jeff put me at ease, extremely easy to get along with, knows what he's doing, is straight talking with a lot of laughs, and had faith in my driving….and thanks to him, I passed my test last week- first attempt! I'll always recommend Jeff to anyone, he's very patient, knows what he's doing.

Jeff as a driving instructor is what you could say one of a kind… Having lessons with Jeff is a hilariously fun experience, but in between all the dad jokes and the smart remarks Jeff is a great teacher, and makes the whole experience so much more relaxed. They have a famous saying between driving instructors- always pick Jeff as your teacher

Jack from Bournemouth, 3rd October 2016

Jeff is an amazing instructor! He's patient and has a great sense of humour that makes you feel at ease when driving. His teaching methods are great and really effective, helping me pass second time. Any questions you have he'll answer in a way that makes you understand instantly and I would most definitely recommend him:)

Hibba from Littledown, 17th September 2016

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

Yes driving school is absolutely fabulous! My instructor Jeff was a brilliant instructor and I couldn't have got a better instructor. His relaxed vibe and hilarious sense of humour kept me calm and happy during all my lessons, and kept me as calm as I could be on the run up to my test. I learnt and picked things up quickly and the lessons were very particle so I learnt as I tried different things rather than reading lost from little books. I definitely recommend Jeff and can't thank him enough for helping me pass my test!

Aby from New milton, 19th August 2016

Molly Reynolds from Bournemouth, 29th April 2016

Instructor: Jeff Sullivan

I changed driving schools to Yes driving, I was very nervous about learning to drive. However, Jeff straight away made me feel at ease and made learning to drive enjoyable. This gave me a confidence boost and I never looked back. He is always punctual and even went beyond his time at the end of the lesson to see if I had any questions or worries. I always left my lessons on a positive note and looked forward to my next one. My whole time of learning with Jeff was a great experience and I miss my lessons. Thank you so much Jeff, I'm loving being on the road.
