Tristan is a calm and reassuring instructor who always goes the extra mile for his students. He loves in Kingskerswell with his family and outside of work he is an avid fisherman and you will often find him on the side of a lake.

Fabulous driving school. Thanks so much to Tristan Smith, who is an outstanding instructor, and who helped Jack to pass his first test this week with no minors! Tristan is calm, friendly, professional and his knowledge and teaching skills are exceptional; he also gave brilliant support and information to us as parents. Thanks again for everything 🙂

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 finally passed my test on the 4th attempt after failing with other driving schools!!

Tristan was brilliant throughout all my lessons - very encouraging, calmed my nerves and extremely skilled at his job. Prior to COVID he even allowed me to have my baby in the back of the car during lessons, which not only meant I was able to have lessons, it also gave me the confidence to drive with a child in the car now I’ve passed my test!

I highly recommend him as an instructor and can’t thank him enough for getting me through my test! Freedom at last!! ...oh wait...once lockdown is over!!
