Jeff has been an ADI since 2009. He started out part-time until he realised that he had a real flair for instruction. Jeff then left his job in insurance and became a full-time, professional and patient instructor in Bournemouth. He decided to join YES! Driving School because of the good reputation the company has and the high expectations they require from their instructors.
Jeff always enjoys driving and the challenges it can bring, which is why he enjoys sharing his skills. He understands the worries and concerns of some new drivers. He empathises with a pupil who has anxieties and low confidence for example. Jeff likes to make lessons fun and relaxed to build confidence with his pupils. If a pupil has a particular learning style or requirement, Jeff is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that these are met. Jeff comes across as a patient and professional personality who also loves to laugh. His main aim is to produce safe drivers who are prepared for life on the road.
During his free time he likes spending time walking his NINE dogs, relaxing with a film, as well as sports and socialising.

Jeff was a great instructor, even though we had a year and a half to prepare for our first test due to covid we prepared thoroughly, every off lesson I had he would help keep me calm and composed throughout the remainder of the lesson, managed to pass first time which I couldn’t imagine I could’ve done with another instructor, he was funny and great to talk to and shared similar hobbies and interests which we would chat about constantly which again would help keep me calm, would highly recommend him! Thank you Jeff
I adored learning with Jeff and I genuinely miss having his witty chat in the passenger seat now that I’m on the road alone. Thanks to Jeff’s calm but firm teaching, and ability to push me out of my comfort zone each week (while keeping the experience fun), I passed both my theory and practical quickly and first time.
I had the whole spectrum of emotions during my lessons with Jeff – frustration, fear, and there was even a monumental breakdown involving lots of tears during one memorable lesson – which he managed superbly, whipping out tissues, cracking jokes and building my confidence back up immediately. But mainly there was just fun, laughter, patience and progress in every single lesson – I can’t thank him enough for taking a scary experience and making it something to look forward to every week!
I highly recommend everyone learn with Jeff! Although I do have his voice and terrible singing in my head now on every single journey I drive 😉
Jeff couldn’t of been a better instructor for me personally he made driving simple and fun and also helped me to pass! Without him honestly it wouldn’t have been possible he was patient and gave me great pointers on how to improve and this sped up the process couldn’t recommend him enough!
After not enjoying driving with my previous instructor, I was apprehensive about starting driving lessons again. Massive thank you to Jeff for building my confidence on the road! Thank you for your patience and great laughs during lessons. Would definitely recommend.
Jeff is a great instructor, he’s calm and never gets frustrated with you. You feel like your always improving as his criticism is helpful and constructive. He’s a friendly and funny guy too. Passed first time, would definitely recommend.
Jeff was a fantastic instructor. He was calm and reassuring, corrected mistakes in positive and constructive way and gave clear instructions. He also brought a lot of humour to lessons; he really put me at ease and I actually enjoyed learning to drive! I would highly recommend Jeff as an instructor to anyone: I couldn’t have wished for a better instructor.
Jeff was an amazing instructor, had some good laughs while learning. Jeff’s instructions were always really clear. Really gave me the confidence in my driving. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
I never thought I’d be able to achieve my driving licence but Jeff made that happen. His knowledge is exceptional and the mix of his patience and humour makes you very at ease in the car and knowing you have his full support. Thank you for all your help Jeff !
I would like to give my thanks to Jeff for the pleasant time learning from him, and through his endless encouragements and key pointers of what you should and should not do in order to be a better, safer and composed driver. I’m always grateful for your abundance in patience teaching. 👍
Passed first time after learning with Jeff. Really enjoyed my time learning to drive and benefitted from Jeff’s thoughtful constructive feedback, and advice on how to improve. Can’t recommend enough.
Jeff has been a fantastic instructor!! He made learning to drive fun and enjoyable with his constant enthusiasm and support! He instilled a confidence in me which allowed me to Pass first time, so thank you So much Jeff! Would highly recommend! 11/10
Jeff taught with a perfect balance of patience and encouragement. I’m very happy with his instruction and he played a big role in me being able to pass first time. I would recommend Jeff as an instructor to anyone.
I managed to pass first time with Jeff’s brilliant teaching. He has helped me to grow my confidence with driving and has been so patient! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a driving instructor who gets things done and can have a laugh!
Jeff is a fantastic instructor. I’m the sort of person who always asks a million questions about everything and he was not only expertly knowledgeable in his answers, but patient and understanding when I didn’t quite get things right away.
He pushes you enough to get out of your comfort zone but not so much that you’re scared.
On the lessons leading up to my test he allowed me to choose what I wanted to practice so that I was confident in myself, even if he was already confident I could do it.
Thanks to Jeff I passed first time, and I couldn’t be happier.
Above all that he is friendly, funny, and just a great bloke all around. I will miss our Tuesday nights!
Had best instructor ever, very calm and really gives you the confidence to go on the road. He doesnt micro manage and i find it really helpful to have patient instructor. I have learnt more about clutch control and more with him than with my previous instructor in London. I have been learning a lot and would recommend him to my friends in Dorset!
Thanks to Jeff I passed first time! He is a brilliant instructor who constantly grew my confidence and I couldn’t have done this without him!
I passed my test on my first go with only 2 minors. This wouldn’t have been possible without Jeff. He was an amazing instructor, always had great conversations and really made me feel confident about my driving. I enjoyed every lesson I had with him and will strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an instructor. A truly marvellous instructor. Thank you! 🙂
Jeff is brilliant. Totally calm and patient but also constantly pushes you out of your comfort zone so your driving improves quickly. With Jeff as my instructor I passed first time, even though I’m generally uncoordinated and panic easily. The lessons were always fun and never stressful, I can’t recommend him highly enough. An excellent instructor and a really nice fella too.
Where do I even begin Jeff is the funniest and most down to earth guy I couldn’t recommend Him enough for anyone that wants to learn to drive, the constant banter makes driving a breeze would have to give Jeff a 11/10
Big thanks to Jeff for all his help and patience while teaching me, started off knowing nothing and not having much confidence in a car to passing my test today! very thankful and would recommend Jeff to anyone in the local area.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Jeff for his patience when teaching me to drive! I went from never having sat in the drivers seat, to passing first time today 🙂 i’m over the moon! He dealt with my nerves so well, and each lesson was enjoyable!
Mr. Sullivan, what a guy. He made me feel at ease during all my lessons and I couldn’t ask for a better instructor. He made everything very easy to understand making my test as easy as it could be.
5 star fella, top banter. Would recommend to anyone wanting to make driving easy.
Cannot say enough about Jeff what a great guy, positive attitude really funny, enjoyed every minute training with him. He’s patient polite and a really nice guy. I passed my test first time round. If your looking for a good instructor, Jeff’s your man. Thanks Jeff appreciate all you’ve done, will be forwarding your no. around with confidence.
It’s always a safe journey with Jeff. He makes you feel comfortable and calm on lessons as well as making it fun and enjoyable. If you are looking for an instructor that can not only get you a pass first time, but also make lessons an enjoyable experience than Jeff is your man. Would highly recommend him.
Jeff. The man is an absolute legend. Could not have a better instructor (apart from his singing). One on the nicest guys I’ve that I have met and is exellent at his job. He has stopped the both of us crashing multiple times and for that I am grateful. Very punctual guy too.
Jeff is an Awesome instructor! I enjoyed all of my lessons with him and felt really safe and at ease. He manages to makes lessons entertaining and breaks everything down for you so I would highly recommend him. He also has some great banter. Thank you Jeff!
Absolute amazing guy
I really enjoyed my lessons with Jeff, he made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He can have a good laugh making you feel at ease. (And sing) I would highly recommend Jeff to all who wants to learn to drive.
Thank you ever so much Jeff for all your help and support with getting me on the road, I will miss our lesson, banter and the odd singing.
Great fella, if you’re looking to pass first time and have fun lessons then Jeff is your man. You won’t need an attorney cuz its always a safe journey
Great bloke has a laugh but pushes you so that test is as easy as it can be. Would definitely recommend
Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Pushed me hard before my exam which is exactly what I needed to pass, I recommend.
Down to earth awesome instructor, always on time to lesson and 100% focused in you passing your test rather than doing lesson for the sake of it, would highly recommend jeff as an instructor to anyone learning to drive, easy to get on with have a great laugh and can teach very well, passed first time
Such an awesome instructor. Never late to any of the lessons and made them very enjoyable and fun. Great to drive with as he’s as good a laugh as an instructor. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to start learning. Will miss being taught!
Jeff was a great instructor! Had a lot of patience with me and gave me a lot of confidence when driving, especially with my anxiety. We always had a good laugh in every lesson which I’m going to miss now that I’ve passed. Thank you Jeff! 😀
A friend recommended Jeff to me because of how friendly and patient he is. He taught me everything I needed to know at my own pace, gave me confidence and had such a laugh along the way! Will definitely miss the lessons and his jokes now I’ve passed.
Top bloke, really helped me to gain confidence behind the wheel after being anxious at first, all whilst being very patient and teaching in a clear manner-he is a good laugh too, highly recommend Jeff to all potential drivers.
Fantastic instructor, makes you feel really at ease and such a laugh, loved all my lessons with him. Couldn’t recommend Jeff more.
Great instructor, allways on time for lessons and allways makes them interesting and enjoyable. Very patient and explains everything clearly. Would highly recommend as long as you can put up with his awful jokes. Thanks for all you help Jeff
Jeff is a really great instructor and taught me everything I needed to be able to pass my test first time. He’s very friendly and helpful in lessons which had led me to become confident on the road 🙂
Jeff is such a great driving instructor, he makes every lesson super fun and makes you feel comfortable within your driving. He’s super easy to get along with and I had a fantastic experience learning to drive wth Jeff 🙂
I passed first time with only 2 minors, had Jeff Sullivan as my driving instructor and he was such a good teacher, he taught me everything I needed to know for the test, of your ready for your test he will tell you and book you in he doesn’t but drag lessons out. Honestly one of the best teachers I’ve ever had! I would defiantly recommend to anyone and already have! Thank you for all your help
Amazing instructor, he made every lesson enjoyable and fun. I passed with two minors all thanks to him, Would recommend to everyone.
Jeff is a brilliant instructor and I would recommend him to anyone. He is friendly, patient, professional and was never once negative at any point during our lessons. Passed my test first time on the 16th September with just 1 minor and it wouldn’t have been possible without Jeff’s extensive knowledge and brilliant teaching methods. If you want an instructor who you can also have a laugh and a chat with then Jeff is the guy!
Brilliant instructor. Never a boring lesson. Got me to pass today with 6 minors. Would definitely recommend. Very glad I learned with him.
Passed first time with Jeff. With a year break in between lessons when starting uni in a new city. I approached Jeff again and managed to pass over the summer. He’s been very helpful, friendly, patient and positive during every lesson. Very clear guidance and we had a laugh as well! Driving was never boring. Would highly recommend. 🙂
I had a few driving lessons prior to Jeff and found I was dreading my lessons and had no confidence with my ability so I ended up taking a break from driving completely. A work colleague told me all about Jeff and he couldn’t of come more highly recommended, so i booked him straight away! Jeff creates such a great environment to learn driving in with his terrible jokes and equally bad singing that it takes away any nerves or anxiety over driving so you can just focus on getting you through that test and ready to drive on your own. I can’t thank him enough for making every lesson feel like a huge confidence boost and getting me through my test first time with only 2 minors (and a lot quicker then I ever thought possible!)
I would definitely recommend Jeff as a driving instructor! He makes lessons fun and enjoyable, whilst remaining professional and making sure all areas are covered. Incredibly patient and always on hand to answer any questions, no matter how silly they may be! Very easy to get along with and plenty of laughs along the way! Passed with 1 minor with Jeff’s help, thanks again! 😊
Jeff was brilliant!! I’d failed my test five times in Southampton but after moving to Bournemouth and having six lessons with Jeff I passed with only three minors!! I really enjoyed my lessons complete with songs and Dad jokes. Would thoroughly recommend!
A brilliant instructor. I started driving with no experience and had passed within 3 months with only 1 minor. Jeff is extremely patient and made me feel comfortable and confident.
Jeff was a fantastic driving instructor, patient and encouraging.Thanks to him I passed my test first time and I feel confident now that I am can drive alone.
Thanks Jeff, I would highly recommend you.
Jeff is a fantastic driving instructor. I passed first time with him with only 4 faults. He is incredibly personable and I would definitely recommend him to other learner drivers.
Brilliant. Thanks to Jeff I got a first time pass. From the first lesson to the last he always made me feel relaxed and confident. Always up for a laugh and banter, would recommend him to anyone. Always remember to 'chill with the still'
Jeff is brilliant! I was an older learner driver (37yrs old), very nervous after having been in two car accidents in my life as a passenger, I lacked self confidence in my ability to drive. Jeff put me at ease, extremely easy to get along with, knows what he's doing, is straight talking with a lot of laughs, and had faith in my driving….and thanks to him, I passed my test last week- first attempt! I'll always recommend Jeff to anyone, he's very patient, knows what he's doing.
Amazing. Had so much fun learning with Jeff. He made everything so simple. Passed last Friday and I'm already out on my own with confidence. Would recommend him to everyone 🙂
Never leave reviews but Jeff is well worth it. I'm an older leaner (35) and Jeff was amazing! Each lesson was relaxed, fun and professional and I was up to scratch in no time at all. Really great bloke with a lot of patience lol. Would recommend to anyone 🙂
Brilliant driving instructor! Was extremely patient, calm and always a great laugh! Very supportive – I would definitely recommend to new learners!
Jeff is a fantastic instructor! I couldn't have passed first time without him. He is a really calm and fun person, would recommend to anyone! He makes everything really easy to understand so you can learn quickly. Thanks Jeff!
Jeff as a driving instructor is what you could say one of a kind… Having lessons with Jeff is a hilariously fun experience, but in between all the dad jokes and the smart remarks Jeff is a great teacher, and makes the whole experience so much more relaxed. They have a famous saying between driving instructors- always pick Jeff as your teacher
Jeff was a brilliant instructor! I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. He was really calm and explained things in an easy way to understand. He is really funny and is a good laugh. Thank you Jeff!
Jeff is an amazing instructor! He's patient and has a great sense of humour that makes you feel at ease when driving. His teaching methods are great and really effective, helping me pass second time. Any questions you have he'll answer in a way that makes you understand instantly and I would most definitely recommend him:)
Yes driving school is absolutely fabulous! My instructor Jeff was a brilliant instructor and I couldn't have got a better instructor. His relaxed vibe and hilarious sense of humour kept me calm and happy during all my lessons, and kept me as calm as I could be on the run up to my test. I learnt and picked things up quickly and the lessons were very particle so I learnt as I tried different things rather than reading lost from little books. I definitely recommend Jeff and can't thank him enough for helping me pass my test!
Jeff is truly the greatest driving instructor ever!! He really made every driving lesson fun. He is so calm and unbelievably funny and really knows how to teach you in a way that you remember. Definitely wouldn't have been able to pass first time without him. Real superstar! Thank you so much Jeff for everything!!!

Couldn't recommend Jeff as your driving instructor any more. Had such a calm and fun experience learning to drive, and I'm so grateful now I've passed first time! I enjoyed every single lesson and always looked forward to the next. Amazing instructor.
I changed driving schools to Yes driving, I was very nervous about learning to drive. However, Jeff straight away made me feel at ease and made learning to drive enjoyable. This gave me a confidence boost and I never looked back. He is always punctual and even went beyond his time at the end of the lesson to see if I had any questions or worries. I always left my lessons on a positive note and looked forward to my next one. My whole time of learning with Jeff was a great experience and I miss my lessons. Thank you so much Jeff, I'm loving being on the road.
Jeff is a great, friendly instructor and can have a joke with him. I passed 2nd time. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who is nervous as he puts you at ease. Thanks Jeff! A big thumbs up from me 🙂
