"I would highly recommend Richard as a driving instructor. He was always calm and encouraging whilst also pushing me to do my best. He explains things in a clear and methodical way so even complicated aspects of driving are easy to learn. Despite my test being pushed back by 4 months due to covid he got me driving and ready again in 3 weeks and I passed my test with 3 minors! Thank you Richard :)"

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.
