About Susan

Before moving to Dorset Susan lived and taught in South-West London. She now lives in Boscombe with her three children, her partner and a Dalmatian. Susan teaches in the areas of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole – a wide area, because she can’t say “no”, when asked nicely :).

Sues motoring career started when she marshalled at various motorbike events from club races to GPs. When occasionally asked if she’d ever get scared when teaching, Sue likes to reply that “nothing is as scary as a riderless motorbike hurtling towards you with only a straw bale (or another marshal) for protection!” In other words, Sue is still looking for the student who’d give her a challenge ;).

Apart from that, Sue loves teaching in Dorset as the roads are so varied compared to South London roads. Please ask for Sue if you want lessons that are fun and in a relaxed atmosphere.

After 10 years of lacking confidence to drive on the roads, I contacted Sue from Yes Driving as my Sister in Law highly recommended her to me. Amazing instructor with a lot of patience and confidence, always boosting that confidence in you. I couldn’t have hoped for anyone better to put me on the roads and helping me drive…. a big thank you to her, she is amazing and would recommend her to everybody (already did!); finally free to drive after 10 long years of annoying friends and family: here I come !

Camille Mangelinckx from Poole, 11th July 2017

Instructor: Susan Jones

Sue is an exceptional driving instructor as she has helped me pass my driving test first time. I would definitely recommend Sue as she is very reliable, patient, and excellent instructor. She was very punctual and she adviced me on any questions I had, she was always able to answer competently. Thank you very much!

Tracie from Bournemouth, 23rd June 2017

I can’t recommend Sue enough! I was a very nervous passenger in cars and never thought that I would learn to drive. I finally decided that now was the time and Sue put me at ease during my first lesson. After about 30 hrs of lessons I passed my test first time with 2 minors!! Next step for me is my pass plus – so you don’t get rid of me that quickly I’m afraid Sue!

I passed last week thanks to Sue, the best driving instructor ever! Sue made me feel at ease, offered reassurance when needed, was always consistent in her teaching approach and made me feel empowered. She does not get angry or annoyed- remains calm even when I made stupid mistakes. She gives very clear and easy to follow instructions – has a good sense of humour, is reliable and always on time. She is also very flexible and down to earth.It took me a while to research different driving schools and instructors and I was pleased that Sue's name was listed on the DVSA website.

Sue is an amazing driving instructor- I was crazy nervous when we started and had no driving experience but I managed to pass my test first time after 24 hours of tuition.

I'd totally recommend her to anyone (she's also really nice/friendly which is a huge plus).

Alex Stewart from Bournemouth, 11th July 2015

Instructor: Susan Jones

After never really having much desire to drive I was finally persuaded by my husband to have a go before my 40th birthday. I had a go in a manual car but hated it so tried the automatic with Sue. From the first lesson I felt happy and relaxed with Sue and could finally see myself actually passing a test. Sue constantly reassured me and as others have said didn't ever seem to stress only give encouragement and reassurance. I past first time last week and can honestly say I wouldn't have without Sue! Mary's thanks to her and 'Yes'
