Driving Instructor in Blandford

Pete Wilkinson

Advanced • Manual • UK Driving •

Pete joined YES! Driving School when he moved to Dorset and chose YES! Driving School from many others.  YES! Driving School made it easy for Pete to become a driving instructor in Blandford.

As part of his 22 years in the Army, Pete was an Instructor of various subjects for 21 years of this service. In this time, Pete realised that he had the ability to understand what makes an individual tick. Additionally, he learned how to get the best from each one. He now puts this ability together with the latest coaching techniques.  This makes your learning experience an easy, stress free and fun time.

Pete believes that the Pupil should have a major say in their learning experience and any decisions made about the pace and direction of training should be a team effort. As a Trainer at heart, Pete is passionate about training. He takes great pleasure from seeing people progress in life and relishes in the excitement of Test Day. He has a great ability in putting his pupils at ease and giving a great sense of self-belief. This helps on Test Day and also in preparation for solo driving once the Pupil becomes a Full Licence Holder.

A strong knowledge of all test areas in Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Salisbury ensures easy learning.

Always looking for self-improvement, Pete took the Advanced Driving Test assessed by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and achieved a Gold Award, the highest standard awarded. He has since retested with the same result. Pete also went on to successfully complete the RoSPA Tutors Assessment.

Our Advanced Instructors will tutor you through to a standard of driving far superior to the standards required to pass the DVSA Learner Test.

“Advanced driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility. This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving competence based on concentration, effective all round observation, anticipation, and planning. This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills. The vehicle will always be at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always be stopped safely on its own side of the road in the distance that can be seen to be clear.”

– DSA, RoADAR, IAM, 1997

 

Advanced Drivers have also been proven to be less likely to crash.  They also drive in a manner which is far more cost effective, keeping fuel costs to a minimum and reducing the amount of wear and tear on the vehicle.
