"I highly recommend Richard 100%, brilliant tutor.

His driving methods work well. Richard is reassuring,

easy going and makes you feel relaxed.

Richard is professional but his sense of humour puts you at ease on your lessons.

My confidence grew after each lesson.

Richard also has useful resources to help you prepare for your theory test.

Thank you Richard for helping me pass!" ?

Sarah Hutson

I started my lessons with Richard as a very unconfident driver with little to no belief

that I could ever pass my test.

I have finished today as a driver who passed first time

and now feels completely ready to drive independently!

Richard's teaching methods are simple,

clear and easy to follow and his manner with pupils

focuses completely on positive reinforcement.

I will be recommending RPT Driver Training

to any friends who need to learn to drive in the future.

Cannot thank you enough!

"I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking to learn to drive. He is patient and calm and allowed me to make my own decisions, which really built up my confidence in the car. When I did make mistakes he gave clear, constructive criticism that was really useful. With Richard’s help I was able to pass first time.

Thank you."

Brendan Smith

'Richard Tidswell Driving Great instructor, down to earth and easy going I passed first time so must be doing something right. Can’t thank him more really buzzing'

Niamh Maguire

"Richard is a great instructor, really encouraging and helpful.

I would definitely recommend Richard for anyone learning to drive!"

Charlotte Sainsbury

"can't recommend Richard enough, I never thought I'd drive, I never thought I'd find the right instructor. If only I had done my lessons with Richard from the start I'd of been passed a lot sooner. Not only that, when you think you can't do it or are just going to fail every single time - he gives you the push that is needed. He's personal and every bit of criticism (If any) is honest and motivating. Oh sometimes he's quite funny. Don't tell him that though"

Ahsan Junaid

"After changing driving instructors a few times I found Richard from a friends recommendation. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Richard for helping me pass my driving test. Richard is a great instructor who made me feel comfortable, especially helping me stay calm before my driving test. I would absolutely recommend Richard to anyone who is interested in learning to drive."


Kate Greenwood

"Helped me gain my full driving license! Has taught me lots of essential things about driving. Has the patience of a saint and explains how to drive in a extremely easy way that anyone would understand while also making you feel at ease. Thank you Richard for all you have done for me! Would 100% recommend."

Mark Pearcey

"I had to switch driving instructors due to a change in work hours but it was probably the best thing I did. Richard teaches you to drive not just how to pass your test and I felt confident enough to take it on in a few months. It's no nonsense, no fuss driving lessons. Richard himself is great at making everything as simple as it needs to be and has always been understanding and accommodating.

Definitely would recommend. Thank's for everything!"

Started lessons with Richard after a recommendation

from a friend, checked out the web site and reviews,

and gave him a call.

I felt very comfortable from my first lesson and have already recommended him to a number of friends and will not hesitate to continue to do so. Thank you.”

Kelly Fisher

"Would like to personally thank my Driving Instructor Richard Tidswell.

Thank you so much for believing in me as I had very little belief in myself when I started.

I would not of stuck it out without your reassurance.

Massive achievement for me considering the nerves I had when I started

and if it wasn't for your support and obviously your sarcastic sense of humour 

then I really don't think I'd of enjoyed each and every lesson as much as I did. 

Thanks Again Richard I really do appreciate."

Richard was polite, calm and patient from the very start and put me at ease during every lesson! He taught me at my own pace and never put me in a situation that I would be unable to handle - if anything, he helped me to find the confidence in myself that I needed to improve my driving skills!

“I Chose RPT Driver Training

after reading the reviews

and I knew a couple of people

who had passed with Richard.

My previous instructor let me down

not the case with Richard was always on time,

in fact early most weeks!!

Lessons are relaxed and at your pace.

Gives you time to correct errors,

to improve your driving skills,

and had a laugh along the way.

Passed 1st time and loving driving”

Emmi Manning Halifax

I chose RPT Driver Training because the 'Try Us & See Deal' and a couple of my cousins passing with Richard was such great value for money. My instructor Richard was very patient and friendly. I passed my practical driving and have the confidence to be on the road recommended RPT Driver Training "

Riah Hesselden 

“I started my driving lessons with RPT Driver Training after having 2 previous local driving instructors let me down by cancelling lessons etc.

Straight away on my first lesson Richard made me feel at ease and as my lessons progressed

I could feel my driving skills improving as well as my confidence! His teaching methods are great, simple and easy to remember,

he is friendly yet extremely professional and efficient.

I am writing this review just a few days after passing my driving test to say that I highly recommend RPT Driver Training and I couldn’t thank him enough”

Tanya Sutcliffe

“I passed my driving test with RPT Driver Training. I had previously had lessons with another company before deciding on going with RPT Driver Training and they were so much better, it was definitely the right decision. My driving instructor, Richard, was very thorough and helped to build up my confidence so that I felt like a competent driver. The lessons were also great value for money! I would definitely recommend Richard thanks again!!”

Leigh De Luca Garside

After trying a few different instructors I finally went with Richard from a recommendation. I hated driving before and dreaded going on lessons. As soon as I got in the car with Richard he was very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable. He always gave easy and clear instructions and I seemed to achieve so much in such a short amount of time. With every lesson I gained more confidence, which I never got with other instructors. Richard also helped me stay calm before my test which was great and I ended up passing first time. To be honest I think if I was still with another instructor I wouldn't be where I am now and probably would still be doing lessons! Would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning to drive 100%. Also got tips and advice on driving my new car! Thank you so much Richard!
