Brandon Gilling 

"Richard is a great instructor!  He is calm and understanding,

he treats you with a lot of respect and gives you plenty of independence whilst learning to drive,

which is good on the run up to your test.  He asks "What went wrong?"

 and coaches you to figure out problems for yourself so that you can work on it and understand

what it is you're doing wrong and how you could have done it better.

He makes sure you are in the right frame of mind for your test and

seeing the positive’s if you don't succeed first time now passed and feel great thanks

Richard for all your help.”

Richard is really calm and put’s you at your ease, anything

You don’t understand will go through it with you until you do.

Richard is the most superb instructor!

He was my 3rd instructor and by far the best,

he made me feel comfortable and at ease on my lessons,

 and made them such fun

which I never experienced with my previous instructors.

I had 0 confidence when I first began my lessons

and this progressed more and more each week

I wouldn't be where I am today with him!

to anyone who is in need of a driving instructor

My instructor was very patient and flexible working with a schedule that suited me. We went through the syllabus at my own pace so that I felt confident that I can drive with good skills on each area.He would explain why, what and how to do everything before we did them .

I am happy and pleased to say that

I successfully passed my test

Unlike other instructors you do not prolong the classes just to make more money but you put forward the learner benefit at first. It’s not easy to find such sincere instructor like yourself

I would strongly recommend you to all learners. I wish you all the very best for the future.

and explained techniques really well.

I found the prices to be good value.

Will be recommending to others”

“Had passed my bike test and now wanted to have a car instead

The most important factors for me when choosing who to trust

with my driving tuition was the quality of Instructor

I'd get and for them to be also be available

 for regular lessons of which I received.

My Driving Instructor was Richard Tidswell

 and he introduced good teaching methods

 and taught me all I needed to know for life

 on the road quickly and efficiently."
