I have had issues with my driving after failing on my first attempt. I contacted Yes! Driving and Ruedi messaged me on the same day. I cannot thank this man enough with all of his help and advice. He has a very unique way of teaching learner drivers. He has always made me feel comfortable and at ease. He always teaches me “real life driving” rather than driving just to please the examiner. Thank you, Ruedi ans Yes! Driving! More power to you guys!
I have had an amazing experience learning to drive with the help of my instructor Ruedi. He helped me gain so much confidence when driving ; resulting in me passing my test first time. I would 100% recommend Ruedi to any learner.
Passed my test first time with 2 minors! Reudi is an amazing, calm instructor and was amazing at getting my confidence back after a bad experience with another instructor! I had over a year break from learning and never thought I’d pass, let along first time!
Thank you Reudi! You are the BEST 🤗🤗🙏🏼
I had two 2hr refresher lessons with Ruedi, he was excellent, very patient, gave me back my confidence. Thank you so much.

Thank you to Ruedi for helping me pass my test today and giving me the confidence to go for it. Its gonna make such a difference to my life to be able to drive.
And also for having the patience too 😁
I was recommended Ruedi as a great driving instructor and they were definitely right! After passing first time today I can’t thank him enough for how he’s helped to build my confidence and made the lessons enjoyable too. Thank you!
I Came to the U.K. with over 35 years of “bad driving habits” took a course of lessons with Ruedi to bring me up to standard and passed 1st time excellent instruction…thanks!
I would like to thank Rudei for his help in getting me up to the standard to pass my driving test first time in just 3 months of regular lessons.
I found his low stress teaching style combined with his wealth of experience puts you at ease and ensures you leave every lesson more knowledgeable and more confident on the road.
The flexible lesson times are especially useful for anyone looking to learn whilst working or studying.
I would highly recommend Yes Driving school and will be coming back again if I decide to undertake a pass plus course.
I was very anxious when it came to driving as I knew nothing about it, but Ruedi helped me massively. I have become a much more confident driver and he has helped me achieve a milestone I thought I wouldn’t reach for many years. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have passed my test today 🙂 Thanks for everything Reudi!
I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get lessons in time before I went back to uni, but Ruedi was great in contacting me for lessons as soon as he could. Ruedi helped me massively with my anxiety of roundabouts and gave me little tips on how to calm my nerves while driving. He’s always cracking jokes and doesn’t make you feel under pressure when you make mistakes. Thank you for helping me pass my test!
I reached out to Yes! just 2 weeks before my test, after being pretty much abandoned by my previous driving instructor. I was not expecting at such short notice for anyone to be available to give me lessons beforehand and take me to my test… but sure enough I got a response from the wonderful Ruedi! He was more than accommodating and we immediately arranged some lessons before my test as well as a plan for the day of the test.
Ruedi was extremely relaxed, friendly and funny! I felt like I had learnt more in the short while that I was with Ruedi than in 20 hours with my previous driving school. I was very nervous the day of my test but I passed first time and I could not have done it without the help of Yes driving school. Thank you!
I passed my test first time today all thanks to Ruedi who made the lessons very enjoyable and was an overall great instructor, thank you! 🙂
I am a senior who lives and drives in Canada. I wanted someone to take me out on English roads and give me pointers about safe driving on what to me is the 'wrong' side of the road. Ruedi was an excellent instructor. He easily assessed where I was at with my driving and focused on what I needed to learn about the road system. Roundabouts are not quite the mystery they were and I feel more confident. I unhesitatingly recommend Ruedi as an instructor. He was very thorough.
Ruedi is a very professional instructor with extreme patience and a great sense of humour. He was able to pinpoint my driving problems and provide practical solutions. He cured me of lorry-phobia and roundabout-phobia. He also helped me unlearn many bad driving habits (such as stepping on the brake without checking mirrors and over-steering without moving hands) and made me a safer driver. Thank you again, Ruedi! Thumbs up for you!!!
Ruedi is a phenomenal instructor. I have nothing but good to say about him. I have enjoyed every lesson with him and will miss his company now that I can drive on my own. He is a very articulate instructor with all you need to know. 100% recommended. Kind regards, Callum
Want to give a huge thank you to Ruedi. I passed today with 3 DFS. A fantastic instructor, made the whole experience very enjoyable. Responded very well to my needs as a pupil and delivered all the content in a concise and enjoyable manner. Would more than recommend! Danke.
Big thanks to Ruedi for helping me pass my test, great instructor, couldn't have passed without his help, highly recommended thank you!!!!!!
A big thank you to RÃ¼di for being such a great driving instructor and helping me to pass my test! Very kind and patient which gave me confidence that I didn't have with another driving school. Fully recommend!!
I passed my driving test today and I couldn't be happier Ruedi is an excellent driving instructor his calm and patient. Thank you again Ruedi I couldn't of passed my test without all your advice. Highly recommend
Reudi is absolutely fantastic! I passed back in February and he helped me so much! I get so nervous, anxious and going through tough times, yet he helped me to pass. I passed first time. I now drive my own car with confidence all thanks to him. I fully recommend Ruedi. Thank you Reudi!
Very very good teacher!! Very patient, easy to get along with. Ruedi makes it possible for you to pass your test, no matter what stage you're at. Thank you so so much!! Highly recommended
Thank you so much to Ruedi! Excellent instructor, very patient!I highly recommend Ruedi.
I couldn't be happier with having learned to drive with Ruedi. He is a very calm and patient instructor and is very attentive to providing both excellent practical instructions and a positive environment in which to learn. He helped me understand how to be a safe and efficient motorist, something that I have found is lacking in most other driving schools. I passed first time with only one driver fault, after taking an intensive one-week course of 20 hours. The best result I could of dreamed of. I would 100% recommend Ruedi and Yes! Driving School to others. Thank you!
I passed the new style Sat Nav driving test first time on 1st March with 2 driving faults all down to Ruedi's excellent teaching. He is a first class instructor who is very patient, reliable and ensures that you are well equipped for the test. The mock driving test that he arranged with Al was invaluable as it allowed he to pick up on my weaknesses. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ruedi and Yes Driving School to others.
Passed my test for the first time today, thanks to Ruedi! He made me feel calm and confident in my ability. Highly recommend learning with YES Driving School.
Just passed my test 1st time with 2 minors all thanks to Ruedi. He was so patient with me and always positive. He has been an amazing instructor and I definitely could not have passed without him. I also found it really useful having a lesson with a different instructor Lee, who is also brilliant, a few days before my test as it gave me a better feel of what the test would be like. I highly recommend Ruedi
I can't thank Ruedi enough for his brilliant instruction which led to me passing both my theory and practical tests first time. He has a great deal of patience and despite my incredible nerves made me feel much more at ease behind the wheel than I ever imagined.I also found the use of cameras to review between lessons and a mock test with a different instructor highly beneficial. Thank you. 🙂
As I have just passed my first driving practical test with a single minor fault, I can say without a doubt that RÃ¼di is an excellent driving instructor.Beyond always being positive and patient, RÃ¼di is exceptionally experienced, made evident by lessons I have had with him. In particular, I found the mock driving test he organised with another YES! instructor to be of great help, making me aware of what I needed to improve on. This was booked in advance to give me enough time to act on my weaknesses, and it worked!I highly recommend RÃ¼di to anyone considering learning to drive.
I just passed my test first time, all thanks to RÃ¼di! He's been the best instructor I could have asked for, I immediately felt at ease and it's been like learning with a friend. He always goes out of his way to help you drive at your best and makes driving fun! Thank you RÃ¼di!
Thank you so much to Ruedi!!!! I passed with 4 minors and I couldn’t be happier!!
A huge thank you to Ruedi at YES! for helping me pass my test first time today! Far better than my previous instructors would definitely recommend him!
Thanks to RÃ¼di, i have joined the ranks of those annoying people who pass their test first time! RÃ¼di is very patient,has a very positive can-do attitude and gives due regard to equal opportunities. Plus he is always reminding me to smile!Although I am happy that i have passed my test and gaining the freedom i ve so long desired, i will miss my lessons with RÃ¼di dearly.Many thanks RÃ¼di for being a perfect gentleman, an outstanding teacher but above all an awesome motivator. If you're contemplating taking driving lessons -trust me , RÃ¼di is your man – he is simply the best!
I never thought I would pass my test first time, but thanks to Ruedi I passed first time with only one minor in December. Ruedi was dedicated and tolerant in every lesson we had, and always kept calm in stressful situations. If you want an instructor who will commit to making you the best driver you can be then choose Ruedi! Thanks again Ruedi and Yes! Driving School, I couldn't recommend you both enough!
Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you Ruedi for being so helpful and patient! So so so happy right now! Yes! 🙂
I passed my driving test today with the help from RUEDI :)he is a fantastic instructor ,i definatly made the right choice choosing YES! Driving school 🙂
I passed my test first time today 5/11/10 after doing my lessons with YES! Driving School. I have been very nervous throughout this period and my instructor Ruedi has not just helped me to become a more confident driver but also a more confident person in general. Ruedi is a friendly, patient and professional instructor who is sensitive and understanding towards his pupils. If you want to pass first time go with YES!
A big big thank you to Ruedi for helping me pass my test first time. After having attempted lessons in the past and hating every minute of it,Ruedi helped me with regaining the confidence I needed with his calm manner and methodical approach. Ruedi never shouts, remains calm and tolerant at all times,offers excellent feedback,and teaches you to drive in a safe environment. Thank you so much again Ruedi!
Ruedi is a Fantastic driving instrucor! I passed my test in Dorchester. I will always recommend YES Driving as the best driving school in Dorset. Thank You!
I passed my driving test today with only 2 minors. I would like to say a huge thank you to Ruedi! he is a fantastic instructor and helped me pass first time after only 21 hours driving. Thank you again.!!!
I passed my test with Ruedi first time with 3 minors, after going throught a few bad instructors and having booked my test already. he got my confidence back in 3 weeks! in time for my test. He is a FANTASTIC instructor, would fully recommend him to EVERYONE! Thank you so much Ruedi! 🙂
Just want to say a HUGE thankyou to Ruedi for all his help in helping me pass my driving test yesterday! Really enjoyed all the lessons & would highly recommend YES! Driving School for learning how to drive!!
Cannot recommend Ruedi enough, best instructor Ive had, made me feel so much more confident im my driving, and made sure i didn't make the same mistakes twice. Was very encouraging and quickly noticed what areas I needed improvement on. I really recommend Ruedi and Yes driving in general! Easily the best guy in the business.
Having left it 20 years since my last lesson I thought I'd try a refresher! Ruedi is an excellent instructor with patience, knowledge and an unsurpassable knack for keeping nerves to a minimum. I started my lessons with Yes in mid January and took my test at the end of February. Passed first time thanks to Ruedi and Yes! I can't thank Yes Driving enough. Ten out of Ten.Awesome!! :o)
I passed my test today with the expert help of Ruedi. Passed in first attempt. I am happy I made a right choice by choosing Yes driving school:)
Ruedi is a great instructor, i switched to YES after progress stalled a bit with another instructor and Ruedi got my over the last hurdle and i passed 1st time!! He's really great u will not regret going with these guys
I passed my driving test this week on my first attempt thanks to my fantastic instructor Ruedi! He was a brilliant instructor from start to finish. He was always patient and encouraging during every lesson and on the day of the test (when I was extremely nervous!) he really helped calm my nerves. I would highly recommend YES! Driving School to anyone in need of lessons. Thank you Ruedi!
Just want to say thank you to Ruedi for beeing such an amazing instructor! I passed my test couple of days ago and i am still over the moon. Once again thank you for all the lessons, enjoyed every single one of them.
I passed about a year ago and I just remembered I can leave feedback 😛 Ruedi was probably the best instructor you can ever have! I would take the lessons again if I haven't passed 😛 THANK YOU
I'm pleased to say that i passed my driving test today with great help and instructing by yes driving. Learning methods, quality of teaching is at the highest standard and i'd like to thank Ruedi for all his help and hard work to help me pass my test :))))))) Thank you Ruedi :))
Just passed my test on the first try. Ruedi is a wonderful instructor and prepared me well. His patience, constant encouragement and advice were much appreciated. Would highly recommend to any new driver!!
I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Ruedi for giving me the confidence i needed to pass my driving test and i passed with ZERO minors!! Having previously tried two other drving instructors, i just did not feel comfortable driving and suffered terribly with nerves.However since learning with Reudi he gave me the confidence i needed,my nerves were under control and I started to enjoy driving! Ruedi is so patient,and went over everything until i got it spot on, which is why i achieved my goal of passing with ZERO minors!! I would recommend Ruedi to anyone,he is a Brilliant instructor!!!!
As I turned 17 I was very eager to learn to drive. After hearing good references about Yes!, I decided for them. Their prices were very reasonable and unlike some others, Yes! aims to get you through the test as quick & safe as possible, without having to pay for additional lessons.Three months later I passed my test 1st time. My instructor always had a very calm & cheerful manner helping me to relax and encouraged my confidence. I am very pleased and would rate Yes! Driving School 10 out of 10!
I would recommend anyone looking to take driving lessons to choose Ruedi as your instructor , he is extremely patient and will help you with any nerves you have when starting out , and is an excellent instructor the Ford Fiesta is also a very nice car to learn to drive in ,Thank you Ruedi for helping me pass my test.
Ruedi is a good instructor who is patient and has different teaching techniques which helped me pass my test after numerous attempts by other instructors.
ruedi is an excellent driving instructor. he helped me were i needed help and i passed my test first time with him! as an instructor he is very calm and collected and i never felt any tension with him at all. thank you very much ruedi!
Hi everybody i just passed my test and that is because Ruedi is a very good instructor and helped me to achieved my goal to get my driving license , i would highly recommend because is nice , calm and friendly person and wont let you down in any occasion …thank you again Ruedi for your patience
Ruedi's attitude is excellent, he ensured that I was fully prepared for my test adn I have become a contientious and confident driver. I am very grateful for the explanations he has given for any mistake I have made, which has given me a greater understanding of the working of the car and of other road users. Anyone looking for a driving instructor would greatly benefit from Ruedi's guidance
As an older learner driver – I was really pleased to find such a good driving instructor. Ruedi prepared me well for my test. Ruedi really helped me to focus on what I needed to improve on, and helped me to see how to improve my skills through demonstration and practice. He was very friendly, flexible and the lessons were very personalised, enabling me to make good progress. I was really pleased to pass first time with only three minor errors. What a success! Thank you, Ruedi!
I have previously failed my driving test and was very nervous about finally trying again after 3 years. I contacted Ruedi initially looking for a female instructor, however, after speaking with him I decided to give him a go and I am very glad that I did! I gained a lot of confidence and passed my test with 3 minor faults – something I never thought I would achieve. Thank you Ruedi!
I tried driving lessons before with another school and found the experience nerve-wracking and frustrating,focussing too much on irritating, unimportant details.On return from university, I signed up for a semi-intensive course with Ruedi and passed a month and a half later, on my first attempt!Ruedi radiates calm, gives sincere praise and makes you the force behind your own learning. I can't recommend him highly enough!
I passed my driving test on my first attempt on Friday, with only 5 minors. Thanks to YES! instructors Ruedi and Gary: both great teachers who are very patient and helpful. I would certainly recommend! Danke schoen!
Ruedi, you are the BEST.thxquite friendly,funny you are HIGHLY recommended.
Just passed my driving test from 1st time !!! HUGE Thanks to Ruedi – he is Fab instructor.
If I could I'd give Ruedi 10 stars not 5! Excellent instructor,very patient. I've made the right decision choosing Yes. Thank you Ruedi, you are the best.Now I am looking forward for some motorway lessons 😛
I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Ruedi for being such an excellent instructor. His patience,thorough explanations and feedback helped one excessively nervous and reluctant learner to pass the driving test. I would thoroughly recommend Ruedi and YES DRIVING SCHOOL. Thank You.
Passed my automatic driving test today first time with only 2 minors! Ruedi was an amazing instructor, in the past i had struggled with two other instructors but he kept me calm throughout and always gave positive and helpful comments in order to help me progress. I would highly recommend Yes! driving school and Ruedi to anyone looking to start driving!
I passed my automatic driving test today with only 2 minors!! Couldn't have done it without the help of Ruedi, I had lost confidence in driving with two previous instructors but Ruedi kept me calm throughout and gave positive and helpful comments in order for me to progress with my lessons quickly and safely. A big thank-you to Ruedi and Yes! driving school! Highly recommend to anyone beginning to drive!!
Thank you so much Ruedi, it was mainly your effort in motivating me and to achieve success in my first attempt. You have made it so easy for me to learn manoeuvres, by your simple techniques and instructions. I really appreciate your sense of humour which was taking all the stress away during the lessons after a busy day at work. You have filled me in so much confidence just before the test,which really helped me to pass. Kind regards – DR RAVI
Well what can I say!!..I past my test 1st time two days ago thanks to Ruedi at Yes! Driving. Ruedi is an amazing instructor, I was so nervous when I started my lessons and he really helped calm my nerves and build my confidence. He was really good at talking through any mistakes I made and helping me understand exactly what I needed to do to rectify them. He is a very easy going guy and we even had a few laughs along the way!!! I would definitely recommend him/Yes! Driving School to anyone… Thank you so much Ruedi you are a star!
he was very good x planed thing very clearly. he made it fun as well. I enjoyed driveing
I would strongly recommend YES driving school to anyone wanting to learn to drive not just for the test, but to instil good practice for life. The tuition was incredibly thorough and rigorous, and I was delighted to pass with only one fault. More delighted to actually feel confident on the roads when driving small children about. Thank you to Yes Driving school and Reudi for his first class tuition!
I was very clumsy and nervous and really untalented, I didn't even speak the language properly and Ruedi was the proper guy to change this and made me very confident and a pretty good driver.And I can just repeat what others already said: Yes! aims to get you through the test as quick & safe as possible, without having to pay for additional lessons. YES!Highly recommended!
I am dyslexic & have problems with sequencing & thought processing. I'd had some lessons in a manual car with another instructor who wasn't very patient or understanding. I absolutely made the right choice by going with Yes! From the get go, Ruedi put me at ease & helped with my confidence. He has the patience of a saint! I passed my test within 3 months and completed the pass plus / BTEC too. If I can do it, anyone can! No more waiting in the rain a bus stops! Don't waste any more time, book today.
I just passed my driving test today thanks to the great help from Ruedi,i only had 10 hours of driving lessons and passed first time :)i would recommend him to anybody who wants to learn how to drive, a very nice guy and a even better driving instructor, i would give yes driving school 11 out of 10.
I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to Ruedi, I passed my driving test with just 2 DFs 🙂 I thought I was never going to have a licence- 9 years since I last had lessons I lacked confidence & was very nervous about driving. But with Ruedi's help, in just a few weeks I am now driving!He has an excellent attitude & explains everything in a very clear manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him (& hope to do my pass plus with him soon), far better than other local driving instructors I had used in the past!
I would definatly recommend yes driving school, I passed my test first time with Reudi this afternoon! A fantastic instructor who makes you feel very comfortable and confident, 10/10! Thank you yes driving school 🙂
Many thanks to Sue and Ruedi for wonderful training. You two are very kind, calm and patient. feel so lucky to have had you as my driving instructors.
Brilliant! The best people you'll meet and they will give you loads of confidents! They will certainly make sure you pass first time!… I did!
I was a very nervous driver to begin with and I honestly thought I would never pass my test! Ruedi is a really good teacher who explains everything very clearly and really helped to get my nerves under control. I am really pleased I chose Yes Driving School and I look forward to doing my pass plus with Ruedi in the near future. Thanks Ruedi!
I would like to thank Ruedi for teaching me to be a driver and not a learner driver.I passed my test 1st time with his help cannot recommend him high enough very patient but persistent until you get it right.gold star Ruedi.Thankyou
I can't thank Ruedi enough for helping me manage my nerves and making it able for me to pass my test. He is patient and a good teacher,he Let me do the learning at my own pace always with constructive criticism and praise. He always managed to make me smile even when I felt like I would never get it right. In all an amazing instructor!! I couldn't recommend him enough 🙂
Absolutely amazing instructor. Hated Driving to begin with but soon began to love being on the road soon after learning under them!
Reudi was a brilliant instructor, kind and patient. I found the mock driving test particularly helpful! Many thanks!
thanks for helping me get through my test first time! Ruedi was a really good instructor, very punctual, friendly and a great teacher. I would recommend YES! to anyone learning to drive.
I passed my driving test 2 years ago & have just done a Motorway lesson with Ruedi. I have always thought driving on a motorway with such a speed would be the most scary thing but it wasn't that bad after all! I quite enjoyed going all the way to Winchester & Basingstoke and Ruedi reminded me a few rules & skills I have forgotten during those 2 years. Thanks, Ruedi, I will see you around!
Big thank you Ruedi. I never thought i would pass my driving test, espeially at the 1st attempt, i am sure you are the No 1 instructor,you are very honest and i will certainly recommend you to all of my friends.THANK YOU
