We have built a solid reputation for excellent customer service.

in conjunction with delivering results.

All of our driving lessons are fully structured.

With a firm objective of what is to be achieved during the session.


Once we have established the learning topic(s) with the student.

And checked a sound theory knowledge is in place for that topic.

we then set a plan to attain maximum learning during the lesson.

Our instructors are highly skilled in coaching during lesson.

They will give full assistance when required.

Or simply use prompts to help guide to a successful outcome.

Their aim of course is to transfer responsibility to the student.

To enable totally independent driving.

Using this system makes
Passing the practical test far more of a formality .

As students will already have mastered

independent driving before the big day.

Ensuing far more confidence.

And as a result, far less driving test day nerves.

When I first started driving with Richard I was such a scared and nervous driver, with a constant death grip on the steering wheel, but his personality and teaching style put me ease almost instantly. I actually felt comfortable when driving for the first time in 8 years! His teaching style is simple, and the way he explains things just make sense, but the big thing for me was he didn't get mad at me if I did something wrong Taking lessons with Richard feels like going out for drive with a friend for an hour, and honestly choosing RPT Driver Training was the best decision I've ever made. Thanks for everything Richard!

recently passed thanks to Richard! I'd had no previous lessons and knew nothing about how to drive, but from the first lesson he started building my confidence. Lessons were always something i looked forward to, and missed when when we had the covid lockdown breaks. He was recommended to me and I'll certainly be recommending him to anyone that

I've never been a confident driver and had a few instructors over the years and after I got a recommendation for Richard he has been by far the best instructor. I found his method of teaching easy to understand and lessons were enjoyable. Learning manoveours were so much easier than I had previously been taught. I made progress over my lessons and I grew in confidence. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone.

Suzanne Greenaway

I recently passed my driving test with Richard's help and I'd recommend him to anyone else looking to drive. His lessons are enjoyable and increased my confidence with driving so much. Thanks Richard

I found RPT Driver Training on google and after reading reviews decided it was the best for me. From my very first lesson until I passed Richard was fantastic. He make me feel relaxed in any situation we came across. His training technique is second to none and all instructions were given clearly and easy to follow. With this my confidence behind the wheel grew very quickly. I cannot recommend Richard enough, he is a pleasure to be around, extremely patient and professional at all times."

Richard was my 3rd driving instructor and he was by far the best. He was calm and gave really good constructive feedback during and at the end of each lesson.

Lauren Geraghty

I started my lessons with Richard as a very unconfident driver with little to no belief that I could ever pass my test. I have finished today as a driver who passed first time and now feels completely ready to drive independently! Richard's teaching methods are simple, clear and easy to follow and his manner with pupils focuses completely on positive reinforcement. I will be recommending RPT Driver Training to any friends who need to learn to drive in the future. Cannot thank you enough!

I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking to learn to drive. He is patient and calm and allowed me to make my own decisions, which really built up my confidence in the car.

Jack Graham

'Richard Tidswell Driving Great instructor, down to earth and easy going I passed first time so must be doing something right. Can’t thank him more really buzzing'

Brendan Smith

I can't recommend Richard enough, I never thought I'd drive, I never though I'd find the right instructor. If only I had done my lessons with Richard from the start I'd of been passed a lot sooner. Not only that, when you think you can't do it or are just going to fail every single time - he gives you the push that is needed. He's personal and every bit of criticism (If any) is honest and motivating. Oh sometimes he's quite funny. Don't tell him that though 😂😂😂

charlotte sainsbury

"Started lessons with Richard after a recommendation from a friend, checked out the web site and reviews, and gave him a call. Had lessons before so we got stuck straight into it. Richard pushes you to get up to a good standard of diving. When i felt confident and ready we booked the test passed 1st time, now have me own car and enjoying the freedom of driving. Can't recommend Richard enough."

Ash Owens

"I had to switch driving instructors due to a change in work hours but it was probably the best thing I did. Richard teaches you to drive not just how to pass your test and I felt confident enough to take it on in a few months. It's no nonsense, no fuss driving lessons. Richard himself is great at making everything as simple as it needs to be and has always been understanding and accommodating. Definitely would recommend. Thank's for everything!"
