Before moving to Dorset Susan lived and taught in South-West London. She now lives in Boscombe with her three children, her partner and a Dalmatian. Susan operates as a female automatic driving instructor. She covers the areas of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole – a wide area, because she can’t say “no”, when asked nicely.
Susan has also successfully completed the Mobility Course with QEF. This has given her an in depth knowledge of adaptations and techniques to be used to enable people with a variety of disabilities to be successful at driving.
Sues motoring career started when she marshalled at various motorbike events from club races to GPs. When occasionally asked if she’d ever get scared when teaching, Sue likes to reply that “nothing is as scary as a riderless motorbike hurtling towards you with only a straw bale (or another marshal) for protection!” In other words, Sue is still looking for the student who’d give her a challenge ;).
Apart from that, Sue loves teaching in Dorset as the roads are so varied compared to South London roads. Please ask for Sue if you want lessons that are fun and in a relaxed atmosphere.

I had lessons with Sue who I found to be friendly, professional & patient. I was a nervous driver and lacked any confidence (in fact I hated driving originally) now I feel a lot more confident on the road and look forward to buying a car so I can get about easier with my little boy! I passed my test second time round. Sue would often ask if there was anything I wanted focus on in my lessons which was helpful. Thank you for your patience Sue!
At last the impossible became possible ! A huge thanks to Sue for being my instructor. Your encouragement and patience gave me a confidence boost to achieve my license.
Susan is an incredible instructor. She was highly recommended by few of my friends and I realised why at the very first lesson. She is patient and calm. She explains everything so nicely and easily! Her confident demeanour gives you that little extra confidence 🙂
I cleared my driving test on first attempt and I give all the credit to her !
Thank you so much Susan x
I passed my test first time, I would highly recommend yes driving, and especially sue, she was so patient with me and makes driving easy 😁
I started automatic lessons with sue back in the summer and passed my test today! If you’re looking for a patient instructor who explains things simply then sue is the one. Thank you so much for all the help for me to pass my test 🙂
I was overwhelmed when I was told I passed my driving test in my first attempt in Poole. All thanks to my instructor Sue. I would like to say Sue is the best instructor I have ever known Thank you for helping me gained back my confidence in driving.
After failing my manual test and having a long break, I went to Sue at Yes for automatic lessons. Sue was amazing, she has so much patience and is so calm. She helped to build up my confidence and improved my skills and understanding of the roads. I would highly recommend Sue and Yes driving school, thank you Sue!
This girl can teach a monkey to drive. She taught me to drive, it simply means that she can teach anybody to drive. All best wishes Susan 🙂
I’m so happy
I passed my test on 15/04/19
I had the most amazing instructor
Thank you Sue for all your support and patience over the past 8months
From my first time ever behind a steering wheel to gaining my full license.
Sue was so very great for me. I was a nervous driver and not very young either. But Sue was always patient, correcting as required. She keeps you calm and cool. I was able to pass first time with her instructions and I am ever so thankful!!
I just want to say a huge thank you to Sue. I couldn’t of wished for a more patient and understanding instructor sue made me feel at ease and the whole pleasure of learning to to drive was so enjoyable with sue. Many thanks Amber Davis 😁
My driving instructor Sue was so wonderful and really helped me feel less anxious and more confident about driving and with her fantastic teaching skills I passed first time! I really can’t thank her enough for all her help!
As a learner the best one could get is a patient and supportive instructor. Sue is one among those. She was utmost patient and calm throughout my lessons, explaining everything to good detail and never hesitant to clarify any questions I had. She built my confidence in driving by leaps. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for automatic driving lessons.
For anyone thinking about taking Automatic lessons, Sue is the instructor to go for. She raised my confidence by miles and is very easy-going, patient & supportive. Without her lessons, I would not have been able to pass with 0 faults!
Would definitely recommend sue, she was amazing. Lovely person to chat to and makes you feel very calm and at ease. Didn’t think I could pass in only a few weeks but sue taught me well and believed in me the whole way.
Thank you so much Sue!!
Greatly enjoyed my lessons with Sue. An always patient and good humoured teacher and never visibly rattled by my repeated attempts to murder us both as I’d career recklessly into the oncoming traffic. She successfully taught my wife Karen and myself, which can’t have been easy since neither of us (both creaky, cranky and middle aged!) are natural drivers. Yet we both passed first time! For which, many many thanks Sue 😉 Highly recommended.
I had been having lessons with someone and not getting anywhere. Straight away Su simplified the manoeuvres making them much easier to do. She really pushed the lessons so I made genuine progress each lesson. Su is very calm, and kind and very understanding if you are anxious, and is a great laugh too. (I miss her 😭!)
Susan is just amazing, she’s got all patience on this earth. I have already referred her to my friends. I cant believe I passed my test in the first attempt, it’s just because of her. Thank you Sue.
Passed my test easily. Sue was amazing instructor and taught with good pace and ease. Excellent instructor with good knowledge of everthing. Sue gave me great confidence on road and would recomend highly.
Sue is such a great driving instructor. Very patient! I feel so much more confident in front of the wheel after having lessons with sue. Thank you for everything! Will definitely recommend to others 🙂
I honestly cannot thank Sue enough. I’ve been doing lessons on and off for twelve years and never had the confidence to test, i have severe anxiety. I had two booked and didn’t show for either. I booked 22 hours with Sue and did them over a week, I failed first time and she made sure I booked a retest on the way home, with only an extra for hours between first and second test and thanks to the confidence, patience and skills Sue gave me, this morning I tested again and passed. I got home took my partner to work and was then able to go see my mum who lives 40 minutes away and have lunch with my best friend that I’ve not seen in months. Thankyou again Sue � xx x
Susan was very supportive and kept me calm throughout each lesson. Very helpful. Would recommend to anyone who learning to drive. Thank you Susan
Very good instructor and makes you feel relaxed when learning which is very important. I had no driving lessons before and passed with 20 hours of driving. Would highly recommend!
Sue is an excellent instructor. She was calm, patient and supportive. She made me fell relaxed and comfortable. I passed my test with 3 minor. I highly recommend learning with her. Thank you so much Sue.
Sue was the perfect instructor for me. Very patient, thorough and helped me so much with enabling to pass my test!
She gave clear, straightforward instructions and guided me through the process with total professionalism. Thanks Sue!
Highly recommended. Couldn’t have done it without her, she was patient, supportive and taught me everything I needed to know. I felt comfortable with her way of teaching, and she boosted my confidence at driving. Thank you so much for you have taught me.
I really never thought that I could overcome my anxiety around driving. Other instructors made me feel more nervous, and my confidence was very low when I began with Sue. She put a stop to all that. She’s so calm, unflappable and patient – and her teaching is very clear. And she’s a nice person to be around – a big plus when you’re spending lots of time with someone! Thanks so much Sue, I’m going to frame my pass certificate.
Couldn’t have ask for a nicer, more professional and calm driving instructor than Sue. no matter how bad a day I was having she stayed totally chilled out and we always had a good old chinwag. If you’re a nervous/anxious person then Sue would be a great instructor for you. Thanks for all the laughs.
I highly recommend sue, she was lovely and very friendly, with her help I passed first time, thankyou sue.
Passing my driving test, first time, was only a dream until I had lessons with Sue. Her patience, calmness and understanding have given me the confidence I need to be a safe driver. Say Yes to Sue!
I had a really good experience with Yes! My instructor, Sue, was amazing. She was approachable and friendly, she made me feel at ease with driving. I would definitely, definitely recommend her to anybody.
I have great experience learn to drive with YES driving school. My driving instructor is very nice and friendly. Thank you very mych for all your help.
Brilliant instructor !! So helpful and very proud to say I passed with sue from yes driving school 🙂
Sue is a very kind and helpful instructor. Very flexible with timing, instructs everything very clearly, kindly and perfectly. Would highly recommend anyone to have her as an instructor. 5/5 I’d give.
My instructor Susan Jones was absolutely brilliant!! Felt at ease as soon as i got in the car! She is so patient and easy to talk to and get on with! Susan went through different ways you can do things When i was struggling until i found a way that was good for me! Brilliant instructor, highly recommend! Thank you for everything!!! 🙂
After 10 years of lacking confidence to drive on the roads, I contacted Sue from Yes Driving as my Sister in Law highly recommended her to me. Amazing instructor with a lot of patience and confidence, always boosting that confidence in you. I couldn’t have hoped for anyone better to put me on the roads and helping me drive…. a big thank you to her, she is amazing and would recommend her to everybody (already did!); finally free to drive after 10 long years of annoying friends and family: here I come !
Sue is an exceptional driving instructor as she has helped me pass my driving test first time. I would definitely recommend Sue as she is very reliable, patient, and excellent instructor. She was very punctual and she adviced me on any questions I had, she was always able to answer competently. Thank you very much!
I really enjoyed learning with my instructor she made me feel relaxed and comfortable would definitely recommend her
I can’t recommend Sue enough! I was a very nervous passenger in cars and never thought that I would learn to drive. I finally decided that now was the time and Sue put me at ease during my first lesson. After about 30 hrs of lessons I passed my test first time with 2 minors!! Next step for me is my pass plus – so you don’t get rid of me that quickly I’m afraid Sue!
Sue is an excellent instructor – she is calm and patient and I always felt comfortable learning with her. I passed my test first time and I highly recommend learning with her, especially if you have anxiety or lack confidence. Thanks again Sue!
She is very good,calm and friendly,I would 100% recommend her,I passed because of her,I was always thinking that I would never pass but when I started to learn lessons from her,her encouragement helps to build my confidence and I passed finally.
Sue is excellent instructo.She is very friendly and lovely person .I would recommend her 100%. just want to say Sue, thank so so much for being such an excellent instructor .I salute you .Keep up the good work.
Sue was a fabulous instructor, she boosted me full of confidence that i lacked before hand and helped me sail through my driving test with zero faults!! So glad i had her there to guide me to my goal! Go sue!!
Sue is amazing! After having a bad experience with my first driving instructor I was pointed in the direction of Sue. She mad me feel comfortable and relaxed as soon as I got in the car. As well as taking things serious we also had a lot of laughs. I passed with NO FAULTS AT ALL. I can't thank her enough 🙂
After years of putting it off i decided to take the plunge and start taking driving lessons again and i`m so glad i chose Sue on recommendation from a friend because after 25 hours of tuition i passed my test on the 31st October:).Sue was so friendly, relaxed and encouraging that i thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with her. Thanks Sue!!!:)
Sue was so helpful from day one! I passed first time all because of how good of a instructor she is! So friendly and she made every lesson enjoyable.
Sue was so friendly, warm and welcoming. I genuinely feel like she gave me the best start with driving. Nothing fazes this unflappable woman, and when things didn't quite go to plan she was happy to share a few giggles along the way. Thanks Sue for helping me accomplish something a year ago I didn't think was possible!
Sue has been brilliant. I failed my test twice under a different instructor. I then went back to Sue and with her support and great,laid back teaching methods I passed! I would recommend sue to anyone 🙂
Sue has been an amazing instructor. I have always been such a nervous driver and was worried I would never pass my test. Sue was calm and friendly on every lesson, and never made me feel scared. She is very good at understanding people who suffer from anxiety. I'm so happy to say I finally passed my test and will recommend Sue to everyone!
Two hours driving with Sue made me relaxed and happy. Could not be better. Great job! Yes!
Sue is an amazing lady. Always calm, patient and encouraging. Passed first time!! Would highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks again sue.
Sue is a great driving instructor! Just passed first time with her. Always calm and patient would highly recommend.
Sue is an amazing driving instructor! She was very patient and helpful all throughout the lesson. Even though I had terrible mistakes most specially in my manouevres. She always make sure that I bear in my mind to be safe on the road all the time. I highly recommend Sue and Yes driving. You are on the safe hands!
Sue is truly amazing lady who taught me for about 25 weeks loved every minute of every lesson i highly recommend sue shes so calm patient kind and couldn't of asked for a better instructor
Sue taught me for a few lessons leading up to my test and she made me feel very comfortable and always gave detailed feedback every lesson. Since passing my test I have had a motorway lesson and I'm considering some more. Would highly recommend Sue and yes driving.
I was actually lacking confidence with my driving initially which made me to make a lot of mistakes.Eventually with plenty of help and support from sue I have passed my test. Sue is a very patient, calm and a friendly person. I would highly recommend her because she is a professional driving instructor. Thanks a lot sue.
IT's hard to know what to add after reading some of the other reviews, which basically sum up my feelings about Sue – but yes she was supportive and patient from day one. Even when I was making some pretty terrible mistakes she never showed any frustration or annoyance with me and made me feel at ease. I passed first time and I owe it completely to Sue, I'd recommend her to any of my friends, particularly those anxious with driving. Thank you so much, Sue!
Sue was a great instructor from the very beginning. She is patient, easy to talk to and keeps you relaxed during your lessons. I passed first time with the support from Sue! Would definitely recommend!
I had taken manual lessons twice before in other areas and hated it, not feeling at ease with the instructors. I had lessons with Sue and felt at ease from day one. Never one to get angry or frustrated even when I did something wrong and I never felt patronized as a learner with her. Very easy going and taught me tricks and this for managing my manoeuvres which no one else had ever told me! Passed first time. Would definitely recommend.
Sue is a fantastic instructor, I had 2 instructors before sue and had 2 driving test with them and failed to pass both but with sue I passed 1st time. Mainly due to her easy going personality and a no pressure inviroment
Sue has been fantastic in helping me through my test, and finally passing. Sue is a very patient instructor and understanding when I have made the same mistakes over again,whilst taking time to help me understand why I have made those mistakes. I would always recommend sue as an instructor, she helped me gain the independence I wanted for many years thank you so much sue.
Loved having Sue as my instructor, she made everything feel easy and relaxed! Would definitely recommend!!
A massive thank you for helping me pass my driving test. Sue has a lovely nature and is very calm and extremely professional. Her guidance and support has given me increased confidence. I would highly recommend Sue. Thank you again for changing my life. 🙂
Great instructor, makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. Highly recommend
Sue is amazing.. past first time! Would really recommend her to anyone that wants to get driving fast! So friendly and easy going!
I am so over the moon today as I pass my practical driving test FIRST TIME! I would like to sincerely thank Sue for her patience, perseverance and for believing in my capabilities. I have no experience at all in driving when I started with Sue, i have learned the basics and everything from her and never in my life that I thought I will make it. Truly life changing for me. She gives clear instructions and explanations. I recommend Sue to anyone who wants to learn she helped me build my self confidence and be on the road. Again thank you Sue :))
I passed last week thanks to Sue, the best driving instructor ever! Sue made me feel at ease, offered reassurance when needed, was always consistent in her teaching approach and made me feel empowered. She does not get angry or annoyed- remains calm even when I made stupid mistakes. She gives very clear and easy to follow instructions – has a good sense of humour, is reliable and always on time. She is also very flexible and down to earth.It took me a while to research different driving schools and instructors and I was pleased that Sue's name was listed on the DVSA website.
Sue is an amazing driving instructor- I was crazy nervous when we started and had no driving experience but I managed to pass my test first time after 24 hours of tuition. She's always calm, never aggressive, gives clear instructions and overall just teaches you really well and at a good pace. I'd totally recommend her to anyone (she's also really nice/friendly which is a huge plus).
I was extremely nervous and lacked any confidence with driving being older 37 and 2 failed attempts years back. Learning with sue has been wonderful, so calm and encouraging every single lesson she really helped me and today i passed my test. Thank you sue
I decided to finally get my driving done in my late 30's. I was privileged enough to have Susan Jones as my instructor. She constantly encourages and has the patience and passion to make you become a good driver!! I would recommend Sue whole heartedly to anyone thinking of starting their driving lessons no matter what age or stage of life you are in. She helped me pass first time and is a true professional at her job.
After never really having much desire to drive I was finally persuaded by my husband to have a go before my 40th birthday. I had a go in a manual car but hated it so tried the automatic with Sue. From the first lesson I felt happy and relaxed with Sue and could finally see myself actually passing a test. Sue constantly reassured me and as others have said didn't ever seem to stress only give encouragement and reassurance. I past first time last week and can honestly say I wouldn't have without Sue! Mary's thanks to her and 'Yes'
I was not a natural driver and was very nervous when I first met Sue. She immediately made me feel relaxed with her amiable approach and always give me clear instructions that took me from being this complete novice, transforming me to have complete confidence in my new found driving ability. Thank you Sue for all your help. Every person learning to drive will be privileged to have you as their instructor
Thanks to Sue, I just passed my driving test first time. At the start I was so scared of driving, and I really didn't want to drive but Sue helped me to become confident on the roads and actually enjoy driving. Sue never got angry at me, she was always so calm and helpful. I wouldn't have passed without her!
Sue was such a helpful instructor to learn With. I was very anxious about learning to drive but she was so patient with me that it felt like it no longer mattered. She was always willing to keep explaining things to me over and over again if I felt I didn't understand. Thankyou sue for being a great instructor and for helping me to accomplish something I never thought I would be able to do!
