Laura Watts

Co-Owner / Manual

I’m Laura and Daughter to the founders of Flying Colours. Bournemouth born and bred I have known our Instructors for many years and know what a fabulous and trustworthy team we are. I love my job; my speciality is meeting someone nervous and bringing them out of their shell to make them a confident driver. Outside of work I love to travel with my family, take my fluffy dog for walks in the forest and make a mess in the kitchen attempting to bake!

I’m Chris and I work full time as a Driving Instructor teaching in an automatic car. I originally trained in primary education but moved to become a Driving Instructor in 2018. I am patient and calm, I guarantee no shouting in my car. I make lessons fun and enjoyable but also make sure that we achieve what is needed. In my spare time I love to travel with my family, manage Liverpool FC on Fifa 21 and a cheeky pub lunch at the weekends.

Tony Rodriguez - Flying Colours Driving Instructor Bournemouth Poole Christchurch

Tony Rodriguez

Manual Instructor

My Name is Tony, I have been with Flying Colours since 2017. I really enjoy getting to know my students and exploring different ways in which they learn so we can get the most out of each lesson. Seeing them grow, then take their first steps to become a safe and independent driver is one of the reasons I became a driving instructor.

When I’m not working I enjoy taking time out relaxing with friends and spending quality time with my family. When the weather is good at the beach trying to paddle board, although I tend to spend most my time in the water under the board. I enjoy cycling and going to the gym which doesn’t happen as much as it should being my other enjoyment is eating and good food.
