Meet The Team
I’m Jennifer and the founder of Jennifer’s Driving School. I started working for myself and slowly built up a trustworthy and loyal small team of instructors who consistently get people through their driving tests and get glowing reviews from their pupils! I currently offer Confidence Booster lessons for full licence holders only, in your own car, £60 for 1.5 hours. I cover New Milton, Highcliffe, Christchurch, Boscombe, and most Bournemouth areas. I can help you feel more confident with driving, as well as tackling anything you might struggle with or want some help and guidance with. Email me for more info 🙂
