Leap Driving School is founded and owned by me, Josh Thornley, a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor and Advanced Driver member of RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents). I became a Driving Instructor to share my passion and enthusiasm for driving with others. For most, driving is a chore or a necessity. For me it’s a hobby and a past-time.
I have completed every DVSA Driving Test possible in every category. I can Ride a Motorbike, Drive Cars, Lorries and Buses and with any trailer combination. This means I’ve sat 5 Theory Tests and 9 Practical Driving Tests, so it’s safe to say I have a sound understanding of the structure and expectation of a driving test. This means I can give you realistic and up to date information on how the test is conducted and when it comes to it, do realistic mock tests with you to give you a feel of the real thing. I’ve put myself through voluntary advanced driver and rider training which puts me in a good position to push your skills far beyond the driving test standard.
I have a wealth of knowledge of the test centre areas in Poole and Bournemouth. With that being said though, you’ll be able to drive anywhere by the end of our lessons because I believe in teaching people to drive, not to pass their test (there is a big difference!).
Because of my love and enthusiasm for being on the road, I’ll do my utmost to make this as contagious as possible to you. I’m calm, have the patience of a saint and I will try to be as accommodating as I can be to your needs.
So why choose me over other local, big schools?
Honestly, I couldn’t answer that because I’ve never worked for any big schools. We’re very lucky to be surrounded by some great driving instructors across Poole and Bournemouth and it’s an honour to be one of them.
I’m a one man band, no call centre or flashy advertising; just modern teaching techniques and a good personality. Have a read though what my past pupils say, drop me a text or Give me a call for a friendly chat and you can decide if I’m the instructor for you.
