Great experience with Walid! He doesn’t miss a trick. He’s stern, but friendly and fair, with a heart of gold. Can’t believe how far I’ve come in such a short time under Walid’s instruction. Very happy customer 

100% Pass


Thank you for well structured and  informative refresher training. Atmosphere was pleasant and I have learned all I needed. Will recommend to everyone.

My experience with Walid and Dorset driver training has been enjoyable, practical and very comfortable.

Walid has a very relaxed and upbeat attitude to teaching and is more than happy to work thorough difficult tasks until you can do it in your sleep.

Passing my test with only 1 minor for me was amazing but wouldn’t have been achievable with out the commitment from Walid and his team.

A massive thank you and good luck for the future.

You never know I might be back for my truck licence.

Many thanks


Very good instructor, the lessons quickly assessed my abilities and shortfalls. To which we focused on those areas.
At points I thought you were being harsh with the criticism, but on review it was beneficial to me.
The proof is in the pudding and I passed, first time with 1 minor fault.
Very happy and would definitely recommend Dorset driver training to others.

“Walid was an excellent instructor, he gave me the time and confidence to practice at my own pace. The instructors quiet confident manner had allowed me to become a much better driver. I would highly recommend Dorset Driver Training”


“Would like to thank you for the support and training I’ve received from Dorset driver training they teach you everything you need to know and to a standard so you can pass it is then up to you to do the business! Very patient and friendly training thanks again”


“A1 training, excellent experience. Walid has the ability to find out what you’re lacking and hone in on what you need. Would highly recommend. A ☆☆☆☆”


“Excellent training with Walid. Really patient and pays great attention to detail. I would highly recommend anybody looking to start career in driving,  go to Dorset Driver training with Walid.”


“You go to school to learn ABC, with Dorset Driver Training I learned C, D and E. If you want statistics 4 x (4hr) lessons for each category, first time pass on every test, 3 tests in 12 weeks, from never driving a large vehicle in my life.

If there was a hall of fame for instructors Walid would be at the top, he has a unique style of coaching, it never felt like training but every day was.

The instruction is to a very high standard, no two days, roads or trainees are the same but the training delivers the required standard always.”


“Thank you Walid.”


“Passed my CPC first time with a 100% pass.   Thank you Walid for the training and preparation.   I felt very confident during the test.”


“Mr. Walid, There are many words that I could use to describe you but I’m gonna limit myself to two of them “Leading Teacher!” CPC exam was an experience more than an exam thanks to your skills of training and preparing me for it. Thank you.”


“Walid has taught me an awful lot during our time together. The demonstrations speak a 1000 words. Walid never rushed me and let me use all the time (and clutch) that I needed to practice my reversing. I would advise anyone getting the B&E license be patient and Walid will get you over the line. Always remember MSM!! Thank you Walid.”


“Great prices, great trainer. Firm but fair. Would highly recommend.”


“Thank you for the driving experience and your wise words of help, advice and guidance. You have a way of teaching that is always positive and encouraging and not negative or critical. Your calm yet professional approach is an example of how all teachers should be.”

-Christopher Spence

“I met with Walid last year with regards to a mini bus licence, options and ideas of driving trucks and coaches were mentioned. To be honest when I returned home the thought of driving a truck/coach freaked me out and I’ve spent the next few months scared to drive anything that size. I have only ever driven Fiesta sized cars and I’m the shortest of people, so anything bigger than a Focus is seriously above my comfort zone.
New year, New me, so I have battled my fear and finally stepped foot in a bus. What on earth was I afraid of? I drove a bus, oh geez, yes I cried, yes I was worried, but Walid was so good, we laughed, we chatted, and I succeeded… Now I’m starting my theory, so watch this space. Thank you for your help Walid.”

-Vicky Spence

“I rang Dorset Driver Training as I had just bought a 7.5ton horsebox and whilst I had grandfather rights to drive it, I’d never actually driven a lorry before and really wanted a familiarisation lesson. Walid couldn’t have been more helpful and I went out with him for a few hours training. I was really nervous initially and almost had a meltdown, but was made to feel so comfortable to take my time and have a break anytime which resulted in my confidence coming through and by the end I honestly really enjoyed it! Learnt so much, and would really recommend to anyone in my position. So glad I did it and grateful to Walid who is a brilliant tutor, shares so much knowledge and instills confidence. I’ll be back for my HGV later this year.”


“Teaching me driving a truck was piece of cake but teaching me to pass the test took patience and skill. I was lucky enough to find both at Dorset Driver training where with those two qualities and the experience of Walid as a instructor I successfully passed both theory and practical test for category C. I do intend to follow on with C+E and later on D as long as my finance will allow it. All in all very pleased with the service and the experience.”

-Calin Rusu

“Passed my C1 driving test with one minor after 4 very enjoyable lessons with Walid, he has a very relaxing teaching style that made learning for me much easier, he was very serious when he needed to be but with a sense of humour that I shall not forget! Very helpful whilst giving advise on the phone in my initial enquiries too, overall very pleased to have chose dorset driver training and I would highly reccomend Walid as an instructor, excellent experience all round.”


“I would like to thank Walid of Dorset Driver Training for the fantastic  tuition for me to pass my class 1 test with no faults, I would highly recommend Dorset Driver Training for all the licenses you need from mini bus to hgv class 1. A*  Training well priced and professional given.”


“Standing on your head not so easy!
Passing your second CPC with 100% mark after training with Walid at Dorset Driver training, much easier!!
An easy, in-depth learning experience, highly recommended star.”


“First time pass again !! Having initially passed my Cat D test first time due to the high standard of instruction from Walid it was a no brainier to choose Dorset Driver Training again for my Cat C (HGV CLASS 2).

With the same high quality tuition it has taken just 4 lessons to again achieve this result, Walid again provided instruction and he did so to the highest of standards, prior to every lesson we discuss the training for that day and following the lesson we had a full debrief.
Behind the tuition is meticulous planning, always the professional Walid gains an insight into his students and their requirements, he is a tenacious individual who makes you feel at ease with driving large vehicles in a way that becomes second nature.
You may have called the rest but you haven’t yet called the best until you speak to Dorset Driver Training.


“Highly recommend Walid from Dorset Driver Training!! He listened to what I wanted advised me not to book too many lessons as he wanted to assess me.. once he did, I was told don’t waste my money on more lessons. Passed first time with 12 hours training. I will be back for my C+E”


“Dorset Driver Training helped me gain a first time pass on my LGV C class licence. I attribute this to the fact I felt really well prepared and relaxed. Walid was firm but fair in his training style which really helped me avoid the silly mistakes I made during early training. Walid is friendly and amenable, give him a call.”


“Dorset Driver Training… what can I say ?  Well if you’re looking for a training company to get you through your test, Walid is your man. A very professional, informative yet friendly and relaxed company is probably the best way to describe them. I was trained to a very high standard which meant when it came to the test I was over prepared which was exactly what I was looking for. Walid trained me how to drive a HGV for all situations and not just to pass my test. I cannot thank Dorset driver training enough and I will be booking my C+E with them when my licence returns. A massive thank you once again!”

-Steve, Weymouth

“CPC success with Dorset Driver training .

After receiving a high standard of driving instruction with a successful pass from DDT it was a no brainer to utilise the CPC training offered and it did not disappoint.
The 1-2-1 training offered delivered the 100% pass mark that I achieved. My instructor was prolific, tenacious and determined with the training offered to make sure I had the knowledge and understanding to make the grade.
Yet again it’s personal achievement before profit that makes Dorset Driver training the first and only place candidates should consider for training and a successful career in the transport industry.”


“I would like to thank you for help and support preparing for the exams. I would definitely recommend Dorset Driver Training for others seeking success in their exams. Thank you very much Walid.”


“Thank you very much Walid for your training and support, today I passed my CPC module 4 first time with 💯”


“Dorset Driver training, I would highly recommend, competitively priced, high quality and focused on you and not your wallet. From the moment I made contact I was instantly put at ease and all my questions were answered regarding training for Cat D (Bus / Coach). Walid, my instructor, delivered easy to follow, clear, high standard driver training from Day one. I was filled with confidence from this that I could progress through any situation that may arise whilst out on the road. After every lesson a debrief followed and I was also invited to discuss any concerns I may have had too. After 5 lessons I was ready for test and I passed first time, I can honestly say it is through the way I was trained that produced the standard required to pass. You really don’t need to look anywhere else!!”


‘Thanks very much Walid for your professional and friendly tuition. D1 passed first time. Many Thanks.’


‘Thank you to Walid for helping me pass my category D bus test. I have found Dorset Driver Training a friendly and helpful training company to use and would recommend them to anyone.’

-Mike C1

‘Walid is a calm and patient instructor, I would recommend Dorset driver training to anyone who wants to learn to drive any class vehicle.’

-Steve, C1

I have just passed my class 2 driving test, with Dorset Driver Training. I fully recommend them for any driver training, I am not the easiest to teach but Walid taught me very well in only 4 lessons. His truck is a nice drive and well maintained. I felt well prepared for my test. I will be doing my C+E and CPC soon.


‘Amazing quality service for better value than others.

I would definitely recommend Walid to those who want to learn to drive.’


C1 Licence



‘Thank you, with your help  I was able to reach my goal of passing my c1 test. Quick response to messages helped in booking test slots and also being flexible and letting me use the van was a massive help.  I can now drive my camper-van! Thanks again.’


‘Hello I am James and glad to say I passed my c1 test with Dorset Driver Training and thank you to Walid the instructor who was amazing could not of asked for more from him.’


Walid is amazing as trainer and as a person as well . I learned lots of things in such a short time with him . He helped me a lot to pass my CPC module 4 and my practical test . I do recommend Walid and Dorset Driver Training with all my heart.



Dan – Car and Trailer

“Thank you so much Walid for being an excellent instructor for my car and trailer test. I contacted Walid a week before my test to book 9 hours of lessons and the test itself. Walid went out of his way to ensure that I was booked onto a test location that was most convenient for me. I had some experience of towing a small trailer, but Walid taught me many things that I did not know previously. I certainly could not have passed in such a short space of time without the excellent tuition I received. I couldn’t recommend Dorset Driver Training enough. Thank you!”

“Just Passed my Driver CPC with Dorset Driver Training first time. The whole experience from start to finish was great and Walid was more than accommodating. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone that requires any kind of driving instruction.”

“I lost hope and confidence and walid gave back to me,  thank you Walid for being my instructor. 🙏🏽”

– Anas

“Passed my cat c today, on my second attempt, my fist attempt was with a different school, didn’t go very well for me, so I got in touch with walid, he made a massive difference for me, he gave me the confidence to pass, I can’t thank him enough. Top instructor.”

– Mark

“Did my class C test with Dorset Driver Training. Walid helped this novice pass his test and now look at the huge truck I can drive. Again thanks to Walid who got me registered with a local agency who only took a couple of days to get me a placement which looks like it could lead to a permanent job. Thanks,”

– Jeff Perez


Don’t lose concentration, taken easy and win. Thank you for the training.

The test was comfortable and enjoyable like a chitchat

Regards to Mr walid and Dorset Driver Training school. I would like to say that this is a really good training school and that he’s a brilliant instructor. Very professional but also a very good man who’s always up for a joke…I’ve just passed my LGV class 2 license with this training school and I’m absolutely over the moon…I would recommend this gentleman to anyone that’s thinking of doing their hgv class 2 or class 1 or even pcv licenses…once again I would like to thank you Mr Walid for all effort you have put towards me getting my license done…I will certainly come back to do my hgv class 1 licensed…best of luck and continue to be the brilliant instructor and person that you are now!

“I passed my Class 1 first time today, Over the last month I’ve done three tests with Walid and have been extremely happy with all the training and would highly recommend him to anybody else.”

– Josh Thornley

Extremely great company with a no nonsense approach! Walid is great and got me through first time for my class C. Will recommend to anyone. Many thanks.

“Walid it has been a pleasure, the driving instruction was first-rate, and the free Arabic lessons equally as good. From first to last a fun experience, and the teaching has enabled me to pass with minimal stress. Thank you Leo”

– Leo

Well from my 35 years of driving I assumed I knew everything. What a shock! Walid somehow managed to hone my skills to turn me into a safe professional driver. He is firm but fair which at first might seem a bit harsh. But boy did I need it and Walid provided that guidance with professionalism and humour.

He recommended five lessons, I thought that a bit much isn’t it? But when I first sat in that truck on the A31 ready to take over. I thought OMG thank god I booked five!

“Thank you for getting me through my LGV Driving Test, The lessons were given in a way that made everything easier to understand, your patience and your knowledge is invaluable, you made me feel at ease while I was driving. It has been a pleasure being tutored by you. I would recommend to anyone who wants to pass their LGV or HGV tests to go to Dorset Driver Training. Again many thanks. Darren”

– Darren Hearn

One of our successful candidates, Daniel, made it through our training and we helped him find a job where he can use it. We are extremely proud of you Daniel, have a safe career.

“I will recommend Dorset Driver training …I will be back for my c-e. Professional and friendly”

“I needed to take my trailer test so I would be able to tow a horse box. After calling around many different companies and not getting anywhere, I spoke to Walid. He asked me what I wanted and what I could realistically afford, as well as when it would be convenient for me. I felt at ease straight away and never felt uncomfortable even when I messed up. He is a very patient instructor who explains everything in whatever way you can understand, and will not end a session until you feel comfortable. I 100% recommend this service and will definitely come again when I go on to doing my HGV.”

“I just finished a 20 hour C1 course and test with Walid. And PASSED! With far fewer minors than when I did my regular driving test many moons ago. Walid worked hard to iron out my old bad habits and teach me a new skill set. While I was nervous going into the training, Walid made it friendly and accessible. Thank you.”
