Rob began his driving instruction career in 2009 and established himself as an excellent manual instructor. In 2011 he decided to turn his hand as an Automatic Instructor in Bournemouth and he has continued his success with YES! Driving School.
In his previous careers Rob spent 10 years working as a stonemason restoring and conserving historic buildings around the UK. Attention to detail was an integral part of his work. This is a skill that he has continued to develop with pupils. He worked his way up the career ladder to become a site manager within the same field where he stayed for a further 4 years. Beyond this Rob worked in IT for 5 years as a systems analyst, monitoring worldwide computer systems for a large bank where once again attention to detail and fault analysis were key skills.
With an excellent pass rate you can be sure of first class training to a very high standard, coupled with the ability to put even the most nervous people at ease. “I tailor my lessons to suit each individual pupil and their specific needs. They could be a complete novice or a qualified driver looking for a refresher course. Or a newly qualified driver wanting to take some motorway training, I’m happy to help!”
Based in Throop, Rob is a fantastic automatic instructor in Bournemouth and all surrounding areas. He recently cruised through his Standards Check with a superb Grade ‘A’.
Rob has a passion for all things relating to cars and motoring. He may be what you would call a true petrolhead, and is always keen to help people become confident and most importantly safe drivers.
In his free time Rob enjoys a bit of DIY, playing guitar. He also enjoys walks with Jeff the Boxer dog, and growing and eating super hot chilli peppers. He is happy to share if that is to your taste. 🙂

I can’t thank you enough for giving me confidence in driving .Was a pleasure to meet you 🙂
Rob was my trainer for car driving and I am so glad I made that decision. It was a pleasure learning driving with him.
Rob is very detail oriented, patient and very articulate in explaining minute details of driving and tips very effectively. He always made sure I understood what he was trying to explain and why it is so important and to do that he had several ways to explain with practical examples and analogies. He was very honest in assessing my preparation and in giving me confidence to prepare well and pass in first attempt and I am so glad I did pass in FIRST ATTEMPT and it wouldn’t have been possible without Rob.
I cannot recommend Rob highly enough for anyone who wants to learn driving and get a license.

A massive thank u to rob for helping me pass my driving test! Such a patient and amazing man, highly recommended 5*****, couldn't of done it with out u!
A huge thank you to Rob Edwards for being a professional and being very patient with me. Iâ€™m so glad I had Rob as my instructor, the instructor I had before Rob was very unprofessional which is why Iâ€™m pointing this out, Robs attention to detail might be why he has such a high first time pass rate for his students.
Rob is a brilliant teacher who always made me feel confident while learning. On the day of my test he kept me calm and I passed first time. I can't thank rob enough for all the support getting me through my test. I would highly recommend him as an instructor.
Thank you Rob, for teaching me and being so patient!
Thanks to Rob I was able to pass my driving test confidently on my first attempt. Rob is a fantastic teacher; he is patient, professional and has a straight-forward approach to teaching. Equipped with many an educational tool, Rob has sent me out onto the roads with an arsenal of skills and knowledge which have helped me to become a safe and confident driver. I would definitely recommend Rob to a friend of any age!
Rob is a great teacher! I was very lucky to have him as instructor! I was pregnant when I started the lessons and passed the exam few weeks before having the baby! He was so patient and helped me to learn everything for the exam. Now I am so grateful because the licence is so useful having 2 children, and having to run up and down all day (thank God in a car!) Did I mention that on top of this, I was a nervous driver! So yes, I will recommend Rob to anyone and everyone! Thank you again Rob!
I don't think I would have passed both tests first time and become such a confident driver if it wasn't for Rob. I tell anyone who's looking to learn to contact Rob, because I know he'll get them through like he did with me. Thanks Rob, top instructor and top guy.
