Driving Lessons in Ferndown

Chris Brown

Manual • Refresher •

Chris recently joined YES! Driving School and offers driving lessons in Ferndown, Wimborne and Christchurch areas of Dorset. Chris has a passion for driving. He uses this passion and experience to help pupils learn the skills to drive well and safely beyond their test. Chris is a firm believer that individuals learn best when they enjoy the process and that is at the heart of every lesson.  He utilises his personal experiences behind the wheel, along with up-to-date coaching techniques, to make the most of each and every lesson while maintaining a fun and relaxed environment in the car.

Chris is very passionate about what he does and will do everything possible to ensure a pupil is fully prepared to pass their driving test first time. Chris appreciates that driving lessons and especially driving tests are considerably stressful and expensive and therefore aims to offer the very best value for money for all clients.

Safe and Confident Driver

Chris’s main focus in his driving lessons in Ferndown is to develop safe and confident drivers. Through his work and life experiences, Chris is well aware of the risks involved in driving and understands that a highly disproportionate number of newly qualified drivers are involved in accidents. Therefore, his teaching methods are geared toward his pupils passing their test first time and being equipped with the skills required to drive their cars safely during the coming years.

Chris has a great manner about him and creates a fun, non-judgmental and supportive environment. He encourages his pupils to talk about any worries or concerns and assists the pupils in finding a solution or strategy to overcome the problem.

A little bit about Chris – Firstly he is a family man, living in Ferndown with his Wife and 2 children. Chris is keen golfer and an avid Tottenham fan (you can’t hold that against him), he is happy to talk about the ups and downs of both these passions. He is a football coach for his son’s football team and a keen runner – He ran the London Marathon in 2009 and still talks about this like it was last year.

When starting the Journey of driving lessons with Chris there are certain things he promises, You will learn a lot, you will enjoy the journey (intentional pun), you will laugh, and we will talk – as silence in the car with Chris is not an option. At the end of it, you will have the knowledge and skills to be a safe, considerate competent driver, ready to take on the challenges the modern-day driver has to face.

Malgorzata Kubik (Margaret)

Manual • UK Driving •

Malgorzata (Margaret) originally comes from Poland. In 2004 she came with her friend to Bournemouth for a short holiday. She fell in love with Dorset and decided to stay for little longer. 15 years later she’s still here and after 2 years of working as a female driving instructor in Bournemouth with a different company, she found the way to join the YES! Driving School family. After meeting with Ruedi and Pete, she believes that YES! Driving School is professional and very friendly.

Margaret qualified as a driving instructor in 2017.  After working for many years in hotel industry where she was leading people at work and dealing with lots of issues, Margaret built a great understanding of how different and unique individuals are.

Becoming a female driving instructor in Bournemouth and helping people achieving goals has quickly become a passion for Margaret. She believes that by working together as a team with her pupils, they can build confidence, rationalise fears, and create an understanding of road safety.  Margaret enjoys teaching life skills and making the lessons as much enjoyable as possible.

Patience is the key

Margaret believes that patience is the key. Pupils need to manage their expectations and not put too much pressure on themselves. She achieves this by putting a sprinkling of fun into every lesson.

Teaching has become Margaret’s new passion in life and the only reason stopping her spending 7 days a week on the road is her two beautiful children. She loves to spend time playing with them, cycling, swimming and exploring new places. However, as a good mother she also makes sure that homework is done before the fun time.

This pleasure of teaching, like nothing before, brings joy and satisfaction to Margaret’s life; she doesn’t think that she will ever get bored. She has developed a hunger to get some more experience in different areas of driving.

Margaret loves to drive around looking for new challenges on the road so will always find you some new driving routes appropriate to you level of experience and ability.

Female Automatic Driving Instructor

Susan Jones

Automatic • Mobility • Refresher • UK Driving •

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.

Drivers with diverse needs

Susan has also successfully completed the Mobility Course with QEF.  This has given her an in depth knowledge of adaptations which can be made to a car. She also gained many techniques to be used to enable people with a variety of disabilities to be successful at driving.

Sue’s 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 a female automatic driving instructor with lessons that are fun and in a relaxed atmosphere.
