Pete Wilkinson

Advanced • Manual • UK Driving •

Pete joined YES! Driving School when he moved to Dorset and chose YES! Driving School from many others.

Pete served for 22 years in the Army and 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 and how to get the best from each one. He now puts this ability together with the latest coaching techniques to make your learning experience an easy, stress free and fun time.

He 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. Pete is passionate about training, 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, not only for Test Day but also in preparation for solo driving once the Pupil becomes a Full Licence Holder.

He has knowledge of all test areas in Bournemouth, Dorchester and Salisbury.

Pete recently 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. In February, Pete went on to successfully complete the RoSPA Tutors Assessment.

More recently, Pete completed his Standards Check with the DVSA and was Graded ‘A’, scoring the maximum score possible with 51/51. Top Result!

Alan Gascoyne

Manual • UK Driving •

Alan joined YES! Driving School in November 2010, following a period of several years as an independent driving instructor, and has worked with two other driving schools in recent years. Alan lives in Bearwood with his wife and son, having moved from Banbury in Oxfordshire in 2005.

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 Alans 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 Alans role.

Following a final career move into driver training, it is clear that Alan has become a popular and successful instructor, enjoying a consistently high pass rate; many testimonials left on our web site, and 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.
