Michelle has lived in Dorset most of her life, with a working background mostly in Engineering. However, she has a real passion for being a Driving Instructor. Additionally, as a female driving instructor in Blandford, her diary is always full.
Michelle qualified as a driving instructor decade ago after deciding to make a career move to something that really gives job satisfaction. She says that she doubts she will ever get bored of helping people achieve independence through driving. Her franchise with YES! Driving School enables Michelle to concentrate a bit more on family as well as keep my love for instructing.
Michelle has a small young family which keeps her on her toes; her working hours are within school hours reflecting this.
Michelle is known locally for her ability to instil confidence and to make learning an enjoyable experience. She has a knack for the psychology of learning which allows her to get the very best from her learners.

I’ve had a fair few instructors. And Michelle is easily the best one. She made me driving a car perfectly straight away and I passed first time. But also made it enjoyable and fun while being very clear and making sure I did everything correctly. The best choice of instructor by far
I’ve just recently passed my test which I never thought I could do however with the help of Michelle I have grown in confidence and have learnt to believe in myself. Thank you
The best driver instructor ever!
She gave me so much confidence and she helped me with my nerves!
She wasn’t just a driving instructor she became a friend aswell!!
I can’t recommend her enough!
Michelle is an amazing instructor, always very calm and clear with her instructions, I picked things up really quickly in her lessons. I always looked forward to the sessions despite being nervous to drive at the beginning. I came away a well rounded driver (in my opinion 😆) and it shows – 4 years on, (in a huge variety of vehicles) I am confident and efficient driver having never even come close to an accident or penalty of any kind – I put this largely down to Michelle’s wonderful lessons. 10/10 would deffinetly reccomend!
I have been driving for 11yrs now and i wouldn’t have been able to do it if it wasn’t for Michelle.
She made me feel so relaxed and gave me great confidence and believed in me when i didn’t believe in myself. She pushes you to limits you wouldn’t think you could get to and if she isn’t happy with how you done something she will make you do it again until it’s perfected no matter how many times it takes.
Not only is she your instructor but she also ends up being a great friend.
Couldn’t recommend Michelle enough, she is an absolute pleasure 🙂
Michelle was amazing very patient with me and when we pulled over to speak about what were doing next she asked me recap questions like what could i have done to make the task i just done better. I passed first time with her she took me on rural and busy routes
If it wasn’t for Michelle putting up with my chatting and awful jokes throughout my lessons and the amazing positive support she gave me throughout my driving test I wouldn’t of passed! I would highly recommend her to anyone! I passed almost 4 years ago and still drive around now with her in my head telling me “that’s a perfect manover”
An absolutely wonderful experience with Michelle! Such a down to earth and funny instructor which will have you at ease! After several not so good experiences with driving instructors, I thought I would never pass. Michelle was an amazing teacher and gave me confidence behind the wheel and made driving ‘click’. Michelle was absolutely wonderful and I can’t thank her enough.
After struggling to past the test due to severe anxiety I decided to try to learning with Michelle and it was by far the best decision I have ever made!
Her ‘no pressure’ approach suited me perfectly and after a few lessons I felt confident to attempt the test again….and smash it!
I will be forever grateful!!
michelle is an amazing instructor..very patient and easy to talk to .I looked forward to my lessons with her and when I had my nervous moments she put me at ease …thankyou michelle
Best driving instructor ever! Super easy to get along with! Teaches you so much about how to be the safest driver that you could possibly be on the road and also about the safety of others and everything around you as well! Also teaches you things you may not know about a car that you need to know for when you have a car which is super great to know! Also gives super great explanations/Answers on questions you may be unsure about from driving to the theory test!
Excellent instructor, patient, dedicated, managed to get me through my lessons and test with little stress, became a brilliant friend, thanks Michelle!
Michelle helped me pass on my first try, she was truly wonderful to learn with. Michelle thank you for making me laugh and for making me feel at ease behind the wheel.
I honestly don’t think I would have passed my test if it wasn’t for Michelle. She’s patient and constructive from the beginning and that’s really helpful for a learner who lacks confidence behind the wheel. 100% recommend!
Michelle is an amazing instructor with incredible patience and care for her students! I passed my test with her with 0 faults and have been safe on the road for a year with no problems. Would recommend her to anyone and everyone wanting to learn to drive!
I passed my test second time with Michelle, after failing the first with a different driving school.
Michelle put me at ease when I thought I would never completely get the hang of it all! I felt as though I was driving my friend around in the car and not my instructor! Such a wonderful lady that got me over my nerves and reassured me and kept me calm when I needed it.
I would highly reccomend Michelle to anyone learning to drive, especially if you’re a little nervous or anxious, with Michelle she puts you completely at ease and takes your mind off of the nerves with laughter!
I will miss her dearly but so pleased and thankful that she helped me accomplish one of my lifes goals.
