Richard is a calm and gentle instructor with a very laid back approach to most things in life. He lives in Harberton, Totnes with his family. Richard is particularly great with anxious learner drivers of all ages. Richard prides himself on his credentials.

“I passed my test first time with Richard after failing with another driving school.

With just one fault, I couldn’t have done it without his help and professional guidance.

He’s the best instructor I could of asked for.”

“Richards school of motoring in one word "brilliant"  both Richard and importantly Tris have been fantastic in helping my wife passing her driving test. Tris is a very caring person and put my wife at ease and helped with her nerves to get her though the test. Would we recommend Richards School of Motoring, that would be a big fat Yes......”

I have just passed my test with Richard first time, which I can safely say I couldnt of done without his amazing teaching and guidance! He is a brilliant and honest driving instructor , easy to get along with and we would always have a laugh. He would always explain everything so well and gave me so much confidence in my abilities, I had an occasion where I had a few months away from driving because I didnt think I could do it, and Richard encouraged me to continue and restored my beleif in myself! He prepared me for my test so well, and even on the morning of it was so encouraging and also kept me chilled as im quite a panicky person at times! He even managed to fit me in twice a week when my test was coming up which really helped me pass! I would highly reccomend learning with Richard, and have reccomended him to anyone wanting to learn how to drive! 🚗 Top guy!! 🏆
