Where quality matters! – Lesson Prices don’t!
We are so convinced you’ll enjoy your training with YES!, if for any reason you are not entirely happy with a lesson, we will pay it, as long as you let us know what the problem was and you try one of our other instructors (if available). Driving lessons with a YES! Instructor do make a difference, try yourself! Included in all lessons: Free video recording for you to take home and review.
All lesson-units with YES! Driving School are 1 full hour (60 minutes) one-to-one tuition. Lessons may be shared upon request.

Payment can be made in the method which suits you best; cash, bank transfer, credit/debit cards (via PayPal for piece of mind) are all acceptable.  Please contact your instructor for further details.

Refresher Sessions

1/2 Day Refresher in auto or manual – £120 (Minimum 3 hours + break) Usually a full morning or afternoon.

After a long period off the road many drivers feel insecure or lacking in confidence and feel that they need a few lessons to get back on track.  You’ll be surprised how quickly your driving skills come back to you even after a long break.  However, it is important to cover a wide variety of roads, traffic conditions and, ideally, a few manoeuvres.  To allow you to refresh at a steady pace, our half day refresher course is ideal.  You can start in the safe environment of a dual controlled car before changing to your own car if you have one and want to.

Last Minute Lessons!

Cheap, Cheaper, Last Minute Driving Lessons – £20.00 (automatic £24.00)!
We are the only Driving School offering Last Minute Lessons in Dorset! Sign up for this option after a 2-hour induction and receive a text/phonecall every-time a pupil has cancelled a lesson at short notice. This can be anything between 48 hrs and a few minutes before the lesson.

Free Theory Training Included in all lessons:
Free enrolment on Theory Test Pro, our partner program offering everything you need to pass your theory test first time.

Driving Lessons during Covid-19

We have driving instructors on standby who are happy to help with essential lessons, including at odd times and/or to arrange an intensive course.

Please note, during Alert Levels 3-5 practical driving tests are only available for key workers.

To do our little bit for key workers during this difficult time, our lessons are offered at a reduced rate of £25 per hour (key workers only).

For all other essential lessons, eg. where a refresher course etc. may make a dramatic difference to your household (such as, if losing mobility would seriously impact the life of you and your loved ones), our normal lesson prices apply.

Mouth coverings may be worn with agreement between instructor and learner. Your instructor will provide a hand sanitiser and you are encouraged to keep your window open or keep air circulation high.
