A little bit about me:

Hi, I’m Dawn,

I have been living in the Portsmouth area for around 14 years and lived in Leigh Park/West Leigh before that for around 20 years.

My hobbies include Ballroom and Latin dancing, walking and watching live music. I also have a small part time job in a social club where I work a couple of times a week.

After working in various accounts roles over the last 18 years, I wanted to try something with a bit more job satisfaction, so I decided to have a career change and become a driving instructor. I felt with my patient and calm nature that this could be the job for me.

My Car:

Dawns CarDawn’s car that she uses for driving instruction.

Number Plate: HJ67 YBT

My reviews:

Absolutely fantastic team at Driving-Pro. I had Dawn as a teacher who was patient and professional throughout my lessons. I had a mock test with Liam who provided a realistic test experience and prepared me for what to expect on the day. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs to learn to drive.ย  ย  ย JonG-266


Amazing teacher (Dawn), was very patient and great at explaining things. Worked around my needs and timetables which was always nice. Was attentive to what I wanted to focus on if anything and was always happy to accommodate.
She helped me through my lessons as well as helped to get me ready to pass my test, first time ๐Ÿ˜Š would highly recommend!ย  ย  ย  ย  EliseG-16
