Nigel has lived for most of his life in Poole and has very much enjoyed raising his family there. Prior to becoming a Driving Instructor in Poole, he gained a breadth of experience in coaching and working with a broad range of people. His previous experience covers a wide range of working environments. From this he has developed a knack in how to deal with a variety of people.
Nigel’s pupils enjoy his calm, developmental approach enabling them to progress from those first moments behind the wheel to passing their test and beyond. He tailors his approach to each individual, promoting and building confidence with safe and timely progress. This progress is controlled by the pupil with guidance from Nigel. A great sense of humour leads to a great atmosphere during lessons.
He is always enthusiastic to meet his students each day. Nigel enjoys life as a driving instructor in Poole and helping pupils in achieving their goal of passing their test. More importantly, he also nurtures the skills for them to be safe after test. He particularly enjoys sharing the delights of test day.
Away from the car, Nigel enjoys most sports and outdoor activities. He loves to disappear on camping trips into the Purbecks for walking in a peaceful and tranquil setting. He also delights in spending any spare time with family and friends.

I passed first time with Nigel and can’t thank him enough, he was reliable and helped me improve my confidence driving. I found my lessons very enjoyable and he would let me have my lessons from either home or school.
I can’t thank Nigel enough for teaching me.
1st time Pass !
Thanks Nigel, A Great teacher very patient and understanding.
Passed 1st time after only 17 hours with nigel fantastic instructor really nice guy, all lessons were fun and enjoyable wouldnt recomend anyone else
I cannot thank Nigel enough for helping me pass my test today! After my first instructor used to shout at me, I came to Nigel really nervous. He has been so patient and made sure I understood things before moving onto something new!
I started with Nigel a few months ago and recently passed my test first time. I had previously been with another instructor from a completely different school and had built up a lot of bad habits and had become very nervous whilst at the wheel. With Nigel’s patience and guidance I quickly overcame the problems and got on the right track to passing first time. Nigel has excellent knowledge of the area and also of what it will potentially take to get through your test. Relaxed calm and always with a smile on his face and a positive attitude. Thanks Nigel for all your hard work.
I passed my driving test today first time and I would highly recommend Nigel as he makes you feel comfortable, and gives you the confidence can’t thank him enough. He’s an amazing instructor
Thank you for everything wouldn’t be possible without you
I passed my test on the 9th of October and I can safely say that Nigel is an amazing driving instructor and got me through it! He also made me gain my confidence back with driving!
Omg I passed my test on Tuesday all thanks to Nigel I really couldn’t of done it with out him he was so patient with me he was always friendly every lesson I have slot to thank him for so once again thank you so much Nigel
I had all my lessons from start to finish with Nigel Cooper and passed the test first time. Nigel is easy to get along with and has a good sense of humor, at no point did i ever feel uncomfortable in the car with him. I wasn’t expecting learning to drive to be enjoyable, more just a necessity, but credit to Nigel for making it fun. Clear, concise instruction making learning easy. He got me fully prepared to pass the test and i went in feeling confident. I would thoroughly recommend Nigel to anyone else learning to drive.
– PASSED FIRST TIME –
Okay I genuinely don’t know where to start, this guy is so sound and will really work with you and your needs at your pace. I struggle with a hearing disability and Nigel was so accommodating to that making sure I had heard him and repeating or rephrasing anything I needed him to!
I struggled a lot initially and found driving fairly overwhelming because there is SO much information to process and things to think about when you first start! Sure there were times when I was disheartened with how things had gone or frustrated with myself for not picking things up as quickly as I had hoped, but Nigel would encourage me and give me the confidence I needed to carry on! We were going all over the local Poole area to practise and perfect various manoeuvres and general driving techniques and kept on at it until I got it! He is a fantastic teacher who will work with you in your own time, but he will also challenge you if he feels you can do better. His calm approach to situations on the road and how he makes you, the learner, aware of your responsibility and safety as a driver, is great!!
But most importantly he is just a brilliant bloke to have a chat to in the car, and over the months I learnt with him I am so grateful he was the instructor I went with. He always has these funny phrases he will say which will actually really stick in your head and help a lot! If you’re going to choose anyone to be your instructor it has to be Nigel, he is without a doubt the best guy to learn to drive with and Im so appreciative and glad I learnt with him! I miss our lessons very much mate!
Big up NC! *fistbump*
I would highly recommend Nigel, He really helped me to improve my driving, explaining everything in a way that I understood and going back over things I was unsure about. After just a few lessons I felt a much happier and confident driver after having a few confidence knocks with previous instructors, Thank you very much Nigel!
After a long journey of learning to drive Nigel got me through the final stages! He’s a brilliant instructor makes you feel calm and relaxed when driving, also has a lot of patients! Would highly recommend him to anyone!
Very good driving company my instructor was very calm with me and if I didnt quite understand something he would go over and over it again with me until i fully understood made me feel relaxed whilst driving as My instructor was calm and easy to talk to I enjoyed every minute of all of my lessons
Nigel was fantastic for me. He was very calm, knowledgeable and assured throughout his instruction, and helped me pass with 0 faults. On top of this he was incredibly friendly and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a driving instructor to help them pass their test.
Nigel, Thank you very much for getting me through my test first time. You were very patient and understanding and an excellent instructor. I would recommend you to any new learner driver.

Really enjoyed my lessons and Nigel was always friendly and patient with me even if I did make a few mistakes 😬
Again thank you so much, can’t thank Nigel enough!!!xx
It was my new year’s resolution to get myself on the road by Easter, and with Nigel I can say that I have done! I probably wouldn’t have gotten this far without Nigel as he by far is one of the most patient people I’ve ever met. Through any mistake you’re taught the best way to overcome it and to stay calm, piece that with a brilliant sense of humour and it makes an overall brilliant instructor! 100% recommendation from me!
Nigel is a very good instructor, he is very calm and fair. He reassures you when you’re doing something right and quickly notices when you’re ready to move on.
Nigel is an incredible instructor. Calm, patient and can personalise his teaching approach as he gets to know you better. Nigel worked around my busy work schedule and really understood how I needed to be taught driving.
Previously I had started driving lessons with 2 different companies, but Nigel was by far the best.
I would happily recommend Nigel to anyone who is looking to drive.
Niger is a great instructor he is very calm always makes you feel good about your progress. Would recommend him to everyone wanting to learn to drive
Nigel is a brilliant instructor. He will always try to find ways to teach in a manner that will suit each person. It was a pleasure to have an instructor who is calm and understands your worries about driving and helps you overcome them.
I could not have done this without Nigel.
I would 100% recommend Nigel to everyone I know.
When I’ve started driving I’ve had absolutely no confidence but Nigel helped me overcome each obstacle at a time. He is very patient when teaching which helps a lot.
I have finally passed my test today and I am over the moon.
Thank you Nigel.
Nigel is a brilliant instructor and would highly recommend him to anyone. I passed my test almost a year ago with only 2 driving faults. He’s very patient, calm, understanding and saw the positive in everything. Every lesson had been enjoyable and not once have i feared to go on a driving lesson. After passing i had to wait a few weeks for my car, me being a nervous person and lacked in confidence, I had booked extra lessons with Nigel and was happy to help and the extra lessons helped tremendously. I can’t thank him enough, if it wasn’t for Nigel I wouldn’t be the driver I am today.
Nigel has shown patience whilst making the lessons enjoyable. I know I wouldn’t of passed without him.
