Rob Tillier

Managing Director

mob: 07749 725332

e-mail: rob.tillier@go-accelerate.com


Rob is the owner and founder of Accelerate Driver Training (accelerate).  AA-trained, he is a fully qualified driver trainer/coach.  He has bags of enthusiasm and boundless energy and aims to bring a highly professional standard to the world of driver training.  His focus is on inspiring confidence and competence in learner drivers.

His big focus is on helping youngsters excel and avoiding the talent that every youngster has being curtailed by a serious injury or death from a road crash.


Rob has passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists Advanced Driving Test and also the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test at Gold Standard. 


A qualified teacher, having taught at both Tomlinscote and Sandhurst Schools (any parents and/or grandparents remember him as your teacher?!), he has spent 40 years in training both individuals and companies and in the latter years running training organisations. 


Having taken redundancy from the pressures of London City business life in Dec 2008, he has made a significant time and financial investment to become a qualified driving instructor and establish accelerate. 


Rob does very little practical driver training these days, spending the majority of his time finding innovative ways to get road safety messages across to young people and delivering those messages to accelerate customers and to students in schools/colleges in the local area. 



Louise Davidson

Operations Director

mob: 07958 711319



Louise lives in Yateley with her partner Mike and their two cats Bertie & Blaise.  Louise worked in an office environment for 31 years before a career change and has now been a qualified Driver Trainer/Coach since 2012.  Louise was a runner many moons ago - she even ran the Fleet Half Marathon once, but now enjoys walking and going to the odd fitness class.

She is wholly enthused about young driver safety and past results demonstrate that she is an excellent trainer/coach with whom our customers can work.  Louise is very happy to be back working under the accelerate banner and endorsing our driving ethics and highly professional approach to young driver training.  She believes that driving should be enjoyable and with a calm and assured approach makes her lessons pleasurable with a few laughs along the way!

Jan Worsfold

mob: 07776 181560



Jan is known locally as the Abacus man having run that business for 11 years, and previously having worked for BSM for 6 years.  He joined accelerate in October 2011 and has built a reputation as calm and thorough in his approach.

Jan has also passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists Advanced Driving Test and the RoSPA Advanced Driving Test at Gold Standard - the highest possible.

He describes himself as having a love/hate relationship with cars & driving and is big into sport - he played American Football in his earlier years and was a triathlon specialist - iron-man or what?

Jan is delighted to now be operating under the accelerate banner as Rob is delighted to have such a professional as Jan on the team.
