As a relaxed driver and a sociable person who enjoys teaching and transferring skills in a beautiful location, it seemed natural that Wes’s career should be as a driving instructor in Weymouth and the surrounding areas.
The challenge of adapting lesson plans to suit each individual pupils strengths and weaknesses is one aspect of the job which Wes really enjoys. The whole process of a pupil turning the ignition key for the first ever time, through to the day they get that pass certificate is very rewarding.
His tutoring style is relaxed with attention to detail. Wes believes that a solid foundation is needed to build your skill-base and lessons reflect this with ‘baby steps’ first lessons that pay attention to detail. This can include refinement of clutch control, steering technique, braking and knowledge of how the car works overall. You will feel more confident when road driving and in turn will learn with a confidence that will stay with you for life. Alternatively, if you already have those skills, then you’re already in a good place.
Driving for life is what we aim to achieve, not just enough skills to pass your test.
Wes is a family man and spends most of his time (when not teaching) running around after the kids. However when he gets the opportunity, he enjoys playing guitar, weightlifting, and football.
Wes is always up to date with professional development and stays in touch with new methods of teaching and digital software. With YES! Driving School, the ability to see yourself driving via our dashcam technology is a really useful tool in analysing the lesson.
If you are looking for a relaxed yet effective approach to driving lessons in Weymouth and the surrounding areas, and want to learn how to drive well for life then Wes has to be your Number 1 choice.
His profile picture will be published as soon as he finds one that he likes. 🙂
Alan recently moved in to the area and is now a great addition to the team as a Driving Instructor in Upton and the surrounding areas. He is now providing driving lessons in Upton and all around after spending 20 years educating road users in the various areas of London.
With driving lessons in Poole and Bournemouth providing a different challenge to that of London, Alan is looking forward to using his enthusiastic, easy-going and very knowledgeable style to help his pupils to become thinking drivers.
As with all YES! instructors, Alan is of the belief that no two traffic situations are the same and also that no two pupils are the same. In order to turn all pupils into ‘thinking’ drivers, Alan encourages his pupils of all standards to evaluate their actions and work out how to deal with any situations in the safest way possible. Some pupils require a set of rules or procedures whilst others enjoy a more free flowing style of learning. No matter to Alan, he makes all learning styles look easy and relaxed in the car.
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
