Get your nerves under control in any traffic situation. Gain confidence while learning to drive a manual car and pass the test! Most of all, start to enjoy driving!
It is important to remember that if you have a manual licence, you can drive either automatic or manual cars once you have passed your test.
At YES! Driving School we will encourage you to become a forward-thinking, confident and safe driver. You will be capable of making the right decision in any and all traffic situations. It is important to remember that the DVSA Test standard is the minimum standard you must achieve for you to drive solo. At YES! Driving School, we will encourage you to aim well beyond the minimum standard required and therefore be safe for the rest of your driving life.

1/2 Day Refresher in auto or manual – Usually completed in a full morning or afternoon over a minimum of 3 hours + breaks.
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.
Automatic driving lessons can be taken in the Poole and Bournemouth area. This option is available with either a male or female instructor. Each of our automatic instructors has chosen to specialise in automatic tuition. They have gained a reputation for providing a relaxed, stress free learning environment. This has ensured that our pupils not only learn quickly but also enjoy their learning experience.
A car using automatic transmission changes gears for you, giving you less to do whilst driving. This allows you to concentrate more on the finer points of driving. The DVSA test standard is the same as for driving a manual car. You must achieve this standard to be able to drive solo. Opting to learn to drive in an automatic vehicle means you will need to do an automatic driving test rather than a manual test. This also means that you will only be licenced to drive automatic cars.
However, at YES! Driving School we encourage all pupils to aim beyond that minimum standard and become a forward-thinking, confident and safe driver who is able to deal with any and all traffic situations. The ultimate aim is to equip you with the skills and knowledge which enable you to be safe for the rest of your driving life.

Our Advanced Instructors will tutor you through to a standard of driving far superior to the standards required to pass the DVSA Learner Test.
“Advanced driving is the ability to control the position and speed of the vehicle safely, systematically and smoothly, using road and traffic conditions to progress unobtrusively with skill and responsibility. This skill requires a positive but courteous attitude and a high standard of driving competence based on concentration, effective all round observation, anticipation, and planning. This must be co-ordinated with good handling skills. The vehicle will always be at the right speed with the correct gear engaged and can always be stopped safely on its own side of the road in the distance that can be seen to be clear.”
– DSA, RoADAR, IAM, 1997
Advanced Drivers have also been proven to be less likely to crash. They also drive in a manner which is far more cost effective, keeping fuel costs to a minimum and reducing the amount of wear and tear on the vehicle.
