Driving Lessons

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! 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 🙂

"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."

Jo

Hello! My name is Jo, I am an experienced driving instructor covering Poole, Wimborne and surrounding areas. It will be my responsibility to teach you a life skill and to have you driving on our busy roads, safely and with confidence. I am reliable, punctual and trustworthy, and calm, patient, and professional at all times.

"After having several driving instructors and still feeling nervous and unconfident, I finally found Jo who changed my driving almost immediately! She was patient, calm and made me feel instantly in control and at ease. I truly believe, if it wasn’t for Jo’s unique approach to teaching, I would still be struggling. I must also add that I passed with only one minor….she is that good!! I would recommend her to anyone."

Emil

Emil covers all Bournemouth areas and teaches in an automatic Volkswagen Golf: Hi my name is Emil, I began my career as a driving instructor because I have a passion to help people succeed. I have a love for driving; my goal and inspiration is to transfer my knowledge and experience as a safe driver to people who have the passion and motivation to become responsible and safe drivers for life.

"Emil is a very good, calm, patient, and encouraging instructor who made me feel comfortable in the car to learn Driving.He gave me very helpful feedback to help me improve and feel more confident driving. After I pass my driving test, my elder son will start driving lessons from Emil. Because Emil is a very good instructor."

Jonathan

Hi, I'm Jonathan, I have worked as a manual instructor for over 9 years. Before that I was a Regional Trainer/Fraud Officer for a large leisure company based in Poole. I am patient, calm and will always ensure you feel safe and comfortable during the lessons. In my spare time I love music and have been a Mobile DJ for over thirty years. I also repair and build PC's and laptops. Jonathan teaches in a manual Toyota Auris.

"I had my lessons with Jonathan, he was both informative, patient and professional. Lesson costs are really good, not expensive at all. Sadly due to Covid we didn't get to complete the lessons but I took my test yesterday and passed first time with only 2 minors! I can't thank him enough for his tuition and support. Would recommend wholeheartedly."

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."

Debbie is from Bournemouth and has very good knowledge of the local and surrounding areas. She trained to become a driving instructor in 2009. Debbie is patient and her lessons are calm, friendly and relaxed. Debbie teaches in a manual Ford fiesta diesel.

Andy, a local Bournemouth man and formerly a senior manager at a food distribution business, enjoys meeting new students and coaching them to become safe drivers for life. Understanding that all people learn differently, he will structure the lessons to suit the individual. Andy makes lessons enjoyable and educational.

"I took 3 lessons with Andy just before my test. I already knew how to drive but really needed help ironing out all the bad habits and small mistakes I was making. Fortunately I passed my test with only 1 minor! If you’re looking for a friendly and encouraging instructor to get yourself test ready, look no further than Jennifer’s and make sure you ask for Andy :)"

"I had the pleasure of learning to drive with Raj as my instructor, and our 22 hours of lessons together were an absolute delight. Raj is a true professional, always remaining calm and collected even in challenging situations on the road. His guidance was invaluable, as he patiently taught me the intricacies of driving and instilled confidence in me. What sets Raj apart is not just his expertise but also his friendly and approachable nature. He made every lesson enjoyable and created a comfortable environment for learning. I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor than Raj."
