About Al

After moving to Dorset, Al chose YES! Driving School for his Driving Instructor Training and hasn’t looked back since. Al is a friendly and dedicated instructor with a calm, understanding manner and has a patient approach that helps put pupils at ease. He is keen to achieve and maintain the best standards as a driving instructor in Broadstone and the surrounding areas.

What makes the job so interesting for Al is that no two pupils are the same, and neither are their needs. His genuine curiosity for what his pupils are thinking and feeling, helps him to tailor his lessons and teaching styles to suit each pupil, finding the best way for them to learn. Al sees learning to drive as a partnership between pupil and instructor and encourages them to have an involvement in decision making as much as possible. As a driving instructor in Broadstone, he aims to create an atmosphere that allows pupils to achieve solid learning, but at the same time allows them to not worry about being judged when they do make mistakes.

Safe & Respectful Driving

Importantly, Al prides himself on being a safe and respectful driver. Passing these qualities on to his pupils lies at the heart of everything that he teaches. He firmly believes these are qualities that are essential to making a well-rounded, competent and responsible driver for life.

Life before and beyond

Originally from the Midlands, Al lived and worked for several years in London as a Graphic Designer where he enjoyed designing for companies ranging from international brands to local businesses. From this he gained valuable experience of how to work with and adapt to a wide range of people. He moved to Dorset in the mid 2010’s to find somewhere to put down long term roots. Having worked in the design industry for several years he decided he wanted a career that was more fulfilling, and people orientated. Having always been passionate for all things motoring becoming a driving instructor was a perfect fit.

In his free time you can find him foraging deep in the forest or out on a long country walk – or if it’s raining he’s quite happy with one of his cats on his lap with a good film.

Alastair has recently passed his final qualifying test of Instructional Ability and his instructional techniques are really sharp but this is laced with a blend of humour, compassion and a natural curiosity about his pupils. Al has already stated that he still wants to learn more and progress by spending more time with our Director of Training, Pete Wilkinson.

Well what can I say Al has been absolutely amazing he’s kind considerate and a brilliant Instructer. He made me feel so comfortable and relaxed whilst having my lessons. I didn’t think I would ever be teachable I’m not the easiest lol. But honestly thanks so much. You’ve made my driving experience enjoyable. I will be 100% recommending Al to all my friends and family. Thanks again.

Great instructor, highly recommend! Really helped me get to test level and would go out of his way to squeeze lessons in for me even when he didn’t have much space. Made me a much more calm driver and was so helpful!

Al Hamp was the best instructor I had ever had. He has amazing patience and took things at a pace I was comfortable with and my driving skills from my first to my last lesson had improved massively. Unfortunately I had to finish my lessons early as I had to move away from Bournemouth as I had finished university, but I know Al will have played a HUGE part for when I do pass my test!
