Mark joined YES! Driving School in April 2017. Mark considered many other driving schools, then chose YES! as the stand out, professional and friendliest driving school in Dorset.
Mark served for 26 years in the Royal Marines and has served all around the world. During his time in the Royal Marines, Mark held various instructional positions. Aside from his military qualifications, Mark is an experienced instructor for Skiing, Rugby and Polo. A member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, he has also received driver training in a variety of different driving styles. These include Off-road, rallying, evasive driving and he has successfully completed the Police advanced driving course.
Mark takes a client centred approach to training. He believes that when a student understands the ‘How & Why’ and applies that during learning, progress and success can come quickly. Learning to drive can be daunting and Mark can still remember the first time he went 30mph. Therefore he ensures that all lessons are conducted in a relaxed no nonsense style, working together as a team to ensure lesson goals are achieved.
Mark has lived in Dorset for 26 years so will always find you some appropriate and challenging driving routes. This will advance your skills and develop your driving experience.
Alan joined YES! Driving School in November 2010, following a period of several years as an independent driving instructor. He had worked with two other driving schools in recent years. Alan moved from Banbury in 2005 and now lives in Bearwood with his wife and son. He now enjoys his passion as a driving instructor in Bearwood and surrounding areas.
Adult training has been a large part of Alans working life. He worked for many years for British Telecom as an installations engineer. Training and assisting adult trainee technicians accounted for much of Alan’s time with BT. Before leaving BT, Alan passed a selection board for the post of Training Officer at the BT training school at Bletchley Park, but the school was closed down before he could take up his post.
Moving into financial services as an insurance agent for a large British insurance company, Alan quickly moved up the rankings to Financial Consultant /Sales Manager. Training new trainee Financial Advisors to competent advisor status was a substantial part of Alan’s role.
Following a final career move into driver training, it is clear that Alan has become a popular and successful instructor. He enjoys a consistently high pass rate and many testimonials left on our web site. Alan also receives a constant flow of recommendations. Alan has a style of teaching which is relaxed and calm, and he specialises in very nervous pupils. He has a great sense of humour, which will help your learning experience to be as stress free as possible.
You will love your driving lessons with Alan.
Jeff really enjoys passing on his knowledge to learner drivers.

Book now for lessons with Jeff, so you’d soon be a confident driver on the road.
Al has recently joined the YES! Driving School team and lives in Knighton Heath, Bournemouth, with his wife and their two children.
