Pete joined YES! Driving School when he moved to Dorset and chose YES! Driving School from many others. YES! Driving School made it easy for Pete to become a driving instructor in Blandford.
As part of his 22 years in the Army, Pete was an Instructor of various subjects for 21 years of this service. In this time, Pete realised that he had the ability to understand what makes an individual tick. Additionally, he learned how to get the best from each one. He now puts this ability together with the latest coaching techniques. This makes your learning experience an easy, stress free and fun time.
Pete believes that the Pupil should have a major say in their learning experience and any decisions made about the pace and direction of training should be a team effort. As a Trainer at heart, Pete is passionate about training. He takes great pleasure from seeing people progress in life and relishes in the excitement of Test Day. He has a great ability in putting his pupils at ease and giving a great sense of self-belief. This helps on Test Day and also in preparation for solo driving once the Pupil becomes a Full Licence Holder.
A strong knowledge of all test areas in Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Salisbury ensures easy learning.
Always looking for self-improvement, Pete took the Advanced Driving Test assessed by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and achieved a Gold Award, the highest standard awarded. He has since retested with the same result. Pete also went on to successfully complete the RoSPA Tutors Assessment. Pete aims to provide more than the basic levels as a Driving Instructor in Blandford and surrounding areas.
Pete also provides a structured programme of Instructor Training. If you’re interested in becoming a Driving Instructor, click here.
More recently, Pete completed his Standards Check with the DVSA and was Graded ‘A’, scoring the maximum score possible with 51/51. Top Result!
After spending some time of his life outdoors gardening, Steve decided on a career change towards driver education 6 years ago. Always eager to improve, he now also provides trailer training throughout Dorset (B+E), in his powerful Volvo XC90. He also covers learner drivers in his Ford Fiesta.
Steve is very laid back and always willing to go the extra mile. This brings him into the odd Dorset Village. He also appreciates that some people are only free on a weekend. You might easily see him on the way to a lesson on a quiet Sunday morning. It is said that he just loves to teach but we are not entirely sure about his claim to do lessons on Christmas Day though – maybe if you ask him really nicely :)?
Steve is keen to see his pupils progress in a relaxed atmosphere. He likes to challenge his pupils but never pushing beyond their capabilities. Steve ensures that his pupils move on at a comfortable pace.
Whilst carrying out Trailer training, he will first assess your driving skills and advise you on any improvements. He will then move onto the Trailer training.
As you’d expect of a YES! Instructor, Steve is well educated, knows how to drive a train, holds a degree qualification, has taken his HGV licence and is often taking part in CPD, such as teaching learners with special needs etc.
Some say he resembles Bruce Willis, so here you go, can’t go much wrong! What do you think? Be nice though!

Dorchester is the county town of Dorset, England. A historic market town, Dorchester lies on the banks of the River Frome, in the Frome Valley, just south of the Dorset Downs and north of the South Dorset Ridgeway, that separates the area from Weymouth, 8 miles (13 km) south.
Dorchester is noted as being home and inspiration to the author Thomas Hardy, whose novel The Mayor of Casterbridge was based on the town.
In the 2001 Census the official population of Dorchester was 16,171, although by 2010 this was estimated to have risen to 18,280
