Shelley-Anne started her journey to become a driving instructor in February 2020, just before the initial lockdown. In such a short time, Shelley-Anne has become a Trainee Driving Instructor in Southampton and the surrounding areas.
One day when browsing the web, Shelley-Anne stumbled across electric cars and YES! Driving School’s shared interest in electrifying the automatic car fleet.
With lockdown and job insecurities looming, she picked up on the idea to secure an additional career. Shelley-Anne used the available extra time to start her training and she has since sailed through her part 1 and part 2 tests at the first attempt with good results. She is now making excellent progress on her trainee license towards the final qualifying exam in order to deliver outstanding driving lessons in the Southampton area, where she has lived with her family for over 16 years.
Originally from Zimbabwe, after much political turmoil and unrest, she came to the UK in 2003 with her husband. Shelley-Anne has since mostly worked in administration roles, at several colleges and at the Southampton General Hospital before embarking on becoming a medical secretary in the private sector where she runs the private practices for 4 consultants.
From her own son aged 13, Shelley-Anne understands the needs and worries of young people. She is a kind and very patient tutor, with a great sense of empathy in understanding the difficulties of driving in the UK. She enjoys helping students to achieve their goal at becoming safe and skillful drivers at a time when the roads are busier than ever. Shelley-Anne likes to instil confidence in her student’s abilities. She aims for her learners to leave their lessons with a smile, reflecting on their journey so far and looking forward to next lesson’s challenges. She is looking forward to being a modern, up-to-date driving instructor in Southampton using the latest coaching techniques to get the best from her pupils.

Firstly, many thanks to Ruedi, who I had some great lessons with, and put an excellent effort to explain and answer situations and any questions I had, to be sure I understood very well. Very accommodating with getting me booked in and also picked up/dropped off in a more convenient place.
The majority of my lessons were with Shelley-Anne, I’m very grateful for her calming teaching style. The importance and methods to fix my mistakes were delivered calmly and effectively. Very good at building rapport, and genuinely smiled when good learning progress was demonstrated.
The best instructor for me, out of several previously at different driving schools.
Thanks so much for your help towards my driving test pass. All the best.
