Mark Robson

Manual • UK Driving •

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.

It’s all about the pupil

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.

driving instructor in Bearwood

Alan Gascoyne

Manual • UK Driving •

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.

A calming nature

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.

Andy Sheppard

Automatic • Mobility • UK Driving •

Hi, I’m Andy and I’ve been an instructor since 2004. I now specialise in automatic tuition. If gears and clutch are not right for you, for whatever reason, and you’re looking for an instructor who is very understanding and patient, then you are in the right place.

I will listen to what you want to get out of your driving and help you achieve your goals in the ways that work best for you. I believe that everyone learns in their own ways, rather than the same approach for all. I have an interest in Coaching and Client Centred Learning and am qualified with a BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Driver Coaching. This way of learning puts you at the centre of what and how you learn and will make you a safer driver, more able to make your own decisions after your test.

Before becoming an instructor I worked in the IT industry where I enjoyed meeting and communicating with people at all levels. My work included running training courses and helping people solve problems and this experience has helped me greatly with Driver Training. I look forward to meeting you.

Stephen Orchard

Manual • Trailer • UK Driving •

After spending some time of his live outdoors gardening, Steve has decided on a career change towards driver education 6 years ago. Always eager to improve, he has specialized in teaching B+E (car+trailer), in his powerful Nissan Terrano. Steve is very laid back and never short to go the extra mile, which brings him into the odd Dorset Village and you might easily see him on the way to a lesson on a quiet Sunday morning. We are not entirely sure about his claim to do lessons on Christmas Day though – maybe if you ask him really nicely :)? As you’d expect of a YES! Instructor, Steve is well educated, knows how to drive a train, holds a degree qualification, currently working on 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!
