Jennifer (Owner)

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!

"Dear Jen! Thanks for all the help last week! You are by far the worlds greatest driving instructor! Every time I go for the indicator ... I'll be thinking of your words ... 'Mirrors before signal Rob' 🙂 Hope this message reaches you in good health Jen."

Dave

Dave has a thorough knowledge of the local areas and test routes; he has been teaching in this area since 2003. He drives a brand new Peugeot 208 manual petrol. “I love teaching people to drive, it's my passion, and there's nothing better than seeing your pupils achieve their goals. I am easy going and relaxed in my style and believe that learning to drive should be fun as well as focused. I cover all areas and welcome nervous drivers. Learn with me and pass with confidence! I'm really pleased to be joining Jennifer's great team in Bournemouth.”

"Dave is a great instructor I recommend him very highly. I come from Latvia and Dave very quickly got me used to the UK driving rules and regulations. I thought I would struggle with roundabouts and dual carriageways but Dave gave me the confidence to adapt quickly and I passed first time with only 3 minor faults. Thanks Dave for giving me the confidence to pass!"

Emma

Emma is very much client focused and a people-person. She has worked for victim support for the police and has also been a 111 call handler for the ambulance service. Previous to this Emma spent 20 years working for a bank, a lot of that involved training/coaching/facilitating. Emma’s dad is a Senior Driving Officer for Hampshire County Council and is often on TV talking about safe driving - she must be a chip off the old block!

"At the time I started to learn driving with Emma I knew nothing about driving. Emma is very patient with me and explain every detail to me. She is very encouraging as well which is helpful to boot my confidence and make me enjoy driving rather than being stressed. She puts me at the centre of learning and tailored the learning experience to my needs and capabilities. I really appreciate Emma to be my driving instructor."

Tracey teaches automatic lessons and is a GRADE A driving instructor. This is the highest grade possible and very few instructors achieve this grade. She has many years experience and is extra good with nervous pupils. Tracey is also a hypnotherapist and life coach and can teach pupils techniques to cope better with test day nerves. She is easy going and extremely patient and friendly and a very popular instructor! She often gets booked up so contact us asap if you’d like to book in with her.

"I had a few previous instructors before Tracey but just never seemed to drive consistently well. After failing previous tests, I was loosing faith. Tracey's methodical techniques were easy to understand and apply. As a life coach and hypnotherapist she definitely improved my self confidence behind the wheel and for the first time I began to enjoy driving. I couldn't recommend her highly enough as a driving instructor."
