After spending some time of his life outdoors gardening, Steve decided on a career change towards driver education 6 years ago. Always eager to improve, he now also provides trailer training throughout Dorset (B+E), in his powerful Volvo XC90. He also covers learner drivers in his Ford Fiesta.
Steve is very laid back and always willing to go the extra mile. This brings him into the odd Dorset Village. He also appreciates that some people are only free on a weekend. You might easily see him on the way to a lesson on a quiet Sunday morning. It is said that he just loves to teach but we are not entirely sure about his claim to do lessons on Christmas Day though – maybe if you ask him really nicely :)?
Steve is keen to see his pupils progress in a relaxed atmosphere. He likes to challenge his pupils but never pushing beyond their capabilities. Steve ensures that his pupils move on at a comfortable pace.
Whilst carrying out Trailer training, he will first assess your driving skills and advise you on any improvements. He will then move onto the Trailer training.
As you’d expect of a YES! Instructor, Steve is well educated, knows how to drive a train, holds a degree qualification, has taken his HGV licence and is often taking part in CPD, such as teaching learners with special needs etc.
Some say he resembles Bruce Willis, so here you go, can’t go much wrong! What do you think? Be nice though!

What can I say? Thanks to Steve’s calm demeanour and fantastic teaching skills I passed my test first time, despite a visual impairment which I had always believed would be an insurmountable barrier to ever getting a license.
It is clear from the second you step foot in his car that Steve has a great passion and pride for what he does, and this shines through in the way he carries himself in the car; he effortlessly makes lessons fun and thoroughly enjoyable, while maintaining structure and taking his responsibility as an educator seriously.
If you are looking for somebody who truly cares and will undoubtedly do their utmost to help you, your son, or daughter to become a safe and confident driver, then Steve is absolutely the guy for you. I appreciate everything he has done for me, and I honestly cannot think of anybody I’d rather have learned with.
Steve made the lessons always enjoyable and a laugh whilst learning at a very good pace! He was always happy to explain and go over areas using different techniques so I definitely understood every challenge that came up- he is easily on of the best instructors. Thanks for all your help!
Steve is fantastic! He takes the time to go through techniques in different ways for better understanding and makes the learning fun.
