Driving Instructor Christchurch

Tom Holdsworth

Manual • Refresher • UK Driving •

Tom enjoys the wide variety of different people he meets as a driving instructor in Christchurch and working with them to find the very best way for them to learn. He naturally puts his pupils at ease and he knows that learning works best when the pupil is happy and interested. For this reason, Tom encourages pupils to put the right mix of skills and topics into a lesson to keep it interesting throughout. Tom takes pride in adapting his lessons to the performance of the pupil on the day. He understands that pupils will learn some skills faster than others and continuously adjusts the pace of the lesson to suit them.  He specially enjoys the point at the end of a lesson when a student can look back and see the improvements they have made.

Transferring knowledge and skill

Tom moved to the area from the Lake District more than 20 years ago, from a beautiful (but rainy) part of the country to another beautiful part of the country where it rains much less. He has spent much of that time working in large corporations which had strong focus on developing people skills. He often led training sessions both for groups and individuals.  Tom is now uses as many techniques as possible to transfer knowledge and skills. Combine that with his long held interest in motoring (but don’t expect him to be excited by anything made after 1980) and becoming a driving instructor in Christchurch was an obvious career choice.

His two kids have reached the age when they are still at home but never around, and are really looking forwards to free driving lessons!  In his free time Tom really enjoys coaching the juniors at a local kayak club and exploring this lovely part of the country.  He enjoys paddling his sea kayak along the Jurassic coast or peddling his bike around the new forest. He enjoys playing Bridge too.

Tom has recently completed his Instructional training with our Director of Training and successfully completed the final qualifying exam.

Automatic instructor in Bournemouth

Rob Edwards

Automatic • Refresher • UK Driving •

Rob began his driving instruction career in 2009 and established himself as an excellent manual instructor. In 2011 he decided to turn his hand as an Automatic Instructor in Bournemouth and he has continued his success with YES! Driving School.

In his previous careers Rob spent 10 years working as a stonemason restoring and conserving historic buildings around the UK. Attention to detail was an integral part of his work. This is a skill that he has continued to develop with pupils. He worked his way up the career ladder to become a site manager within the same field where he stayed for a further 4 years.  Beyond this Rob worked in IT for 5 years as a systems analyst, monitoring worldwide computer systems for a large bank where once again attention to detail and fault analysis were key skills.

Tailored lessons

With an excellent pass rate you can be sure of first class training to a very high standard, coupled with the ability to put even the most nervous people at ease.  “I tailor my lessons to suit each individual pupil and their specific needs.  They could be a complete novice or a qualified driver looking for a refresher course. Or a newly qualified driver wanting to take some motorway training, I’m happy to help!”

Based in Throop, Rob is a fantastic automatic instructor in Bournemouth and all surrounding areas. He recently cruised through his Standards Check with a superb Grade ‘A’.

Rob has a passion for all things relating to cars and motoring. He may be what you would call a true petrolhead, and is always keen to help people become confident and most importantly safe drivers.

In his free time Rob enjoys a bit of DIY, playing guitar.  He also enjoys walks with Jeff the Boxer dog, and growing and eating super hot chilli peppers.  He is happy to share if that is to your taste. 🙂
