Driving School in Dorset

Mark Robson

Manual • Refresher • Trailer • UK Driving •

Mark joined YES! Driving School in April 2017. He 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, he 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.

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.

Mark is also involved in promoting YES! into the best driving school in Dorset by developing our Trailer Training course along with Steve.

Trailer training

Stephen Orchard

Manual • Refresher • Trailer • UK Driving •

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!
