"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"

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."

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."
"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!"

"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."

so I found Richard and gave him a call within that week he booked me a lesson in,

“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”
“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”

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!
