Hi im Richard and I operate an independent driving school in South London.

I have been teaching for 17 years and this experience means I have an excellent first-time pass rate for new learners, equally I enjoy working with learners who just haven’t managed to pass yet with other instructors.

I am friendly and patient and the majority of my learners come to me via personal recommendation. 

I welcome learners of all ages and abilities. As well as teaching from scratch, I also offer refresher lessons and motorway lessons.
