    Daniel

    freedomtw Daniel passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richards a great instructor, he's easy to get along with so I felt relaxed and confident behind the wheel. Very reliable and flexible with the lessons and was never late even when I changed the meeting place last minute. His teaching style was very effective, he's calm, patient and gave me very useful tips which allowed me to develop my skills above the standards needed to pass. I passed first time with only three minors and I owe it all to him.

    Passed 8.2.12

    Paul

    freedomtw Paul passed with Freedom School of Motoring After a friend of mine gave me Richard's details I didn't look back, as him and his brother had nothing but praise for his methods and abilities! When I finally got around to learning to drive Richard's whole approach allowed me to make steady progress, on each core skill before moving onto the next one. His clear instructions and easy to talk to personality allowed me to ask questions whenever I had any. When it came towards my test date, Richard was not shy about telling me where I needed to concentrate hardest on, and thankfully I was able to complete my weakest manoeuvre without to much hassle during my test itself. I would highly recommend Freedom School of Motoring

    Passed 9.2.12

    Gareth

    freedomtw Gareth passed with Freedom School of Motoring "I can highly recommend Freedom School of Motoring; I found Richard a patient, friendly and effective instructor, who gives clear instructions as well as good constructive criticism, which allowed me to improve on my weaker areas of driving and pass the test. He was also able to offer lessons that fitted in well around my working week.

    Passed 27.2.12

    Audrey

    freedomtw Audrey passed with Freedom School of Motoring I left it way too late to start learning how to drive or so I had thought for years. I was finally embarrassed into it by friends at the ripe old age of 34 so I bit the bullet, went on-line to find a local instructor and sent off a few emails. I received a very prompt and very courteous voicemail from Richard and so I decided to book my first lesson. I was absolutely terrified to get behind the wheel and I wont lie, Richard did force me out of my comfort zone very early on which he knew was what I needed. He is incredibly patient and I never once felt like he was frustrated with me even though I incompetently refused to brake properly for weeks on end. Richard has teaching down to a fine art and is very experienced in dealing with all types of learners young and not so young, confident and not so confident. He has certainly learned all the tricks of the trade and will give you honest feedback on where your weaknesses are which is really the only way to learn if you ask me. Once I passed my test I went on a motorway lesson with Richard. I was nervous about going over 50 miles per hour for the first time and was terrified at the thought of changing lanes. I was delighted I decided to do this extra lesson as it really gave me the confidence I needed, not only to reaffirm my driving ability off the motorway but also to learn how the motorway works. Driving at 70 miles per hour, on the motorway, for the first time, at 34 years of age? Dual control? YES PLEASE.

    Passed 13.1.12

    Rosie

    freedomtw Rosie passed with Freedom School of Motoring The prospect of learning to drive was very daunting and intimidating at first. However, Richards skilled and relaxed approach enabled me to gain swift confidence and make great progress each lesson. He was very accommodating to my weekly schedule and always arrived promptly. The pace of each lesson felt perfect and I was challenged but never pressurised into a level of difficulty beyond my capabilities. I especially appreciate how approachable each step was made and cannot thank Richard enough for enabling me to pass first time!

    Thank you so much for everything!

    Passed 12.3.12

    Callam

    freedomtw Callam passed with Freedom School of Motoring After teaching my brother 5 years ago and seeing that he passed first time, it only made sense to start learning with Richard. I highly recommend him and find that he adjusted to my strengths and weaknesses well to ensure that every lesson was beneficial to me. Richard's extremely friendly and negotiable with adjustments made with lessons to suit you individually, even though he's a Chelsea supporter! Even on the test day, Richard's wise words of wisdom telling me to calm down and drive normally instead of trying too hard really helped me and resulted in me passing first time like my brother. I hand it all to Richard and highly recommend him!!

    Passed 19.3.12

    Chaima

    freedomtw Chaima passed with Freedom School of Motoring At first I was not keen to learn how to drive but I was willing to give a few lessons a go. After my first few lessons with Richard I felt comfortable and content with my driving.He is very friendly, knows when to give me tips on how to handle things. He was very patient with me and repeated things when I asked he nevermade me feel uncomfortable to ask questions and he would answer them with a smile .He was very flexible with the times of our lessons and always on time. Before the exam he prepared me early and told me in advance what is expected in the test. He is very professional and I personally recommend him. Thank you very much Richard.

    Passed 17.3.12

    Chris

    freedomtw Chris passed with Freedom School of Motoring I was given Richard's details by a friend who had recently passed his test with Freedom School of Motoring, and I would highly recomend Richard as a teacher! He is very patient and made me feel very comfortable behind the wheel. His methods of teaching allowed me to make steady progress by working on the areas I was weakest at, and his good nature made me feel that I could ask him about anything I was unclear on. Richard was always on time, regardless of how many times I rescheduled, and was extremely flexable about fitting lessons in around my work hours. I couldn't have hoped for a better teacher (despite him being a Chelsea fan..) and would recomend him to anyone!

    Passed 16.4.12

    Daniel

    freedomtw Daniel passed with Freedom School of Motoring Originally I was a little nervous about learning how to drive, but after hearing a friend had passed first time using Richard, I thought I'd give it a go. He was very easy to get along with and also had a great sense of humour, which I found a big help, as it made me feel comfortable driving with him. He would always give me a choice on what I wanted to go through and also gave a lot of opportunities to ask questions if needed. He was very flexible, on many occasions picking me up from different locations which was very convenient. Overall, a brilliant experience and a brilliant teacher! Thank you.

    Passded 23.4.12

    Ben

    freedomtw Ben passed with Freedom School of Motoring Passed First Time

    Richard was recommended to me by a friend who passed first time. Driving didn't come naturally to me but Richard was very patient with me. I found him a very friendly guy and very easy to get along with and when I got used to driving I really enjoyed my lessons with him. I often changed my lesson times and wanted picking up or dropping off from different locations and Richard was always understanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
    Thank you ever much for your help and patience with me

    Passed 25.4.12

    Gus

    freedomtw Gus passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard has taught all my family, including most of my cousins, all of which except one passed first time. This made me feel much more relaxed when learning to drive with him. He was very patient and made me feel very comfortable behind the wheel. Richard was always on time, no matter how many times I rescheduled my lessons. Overall, he is a great teacher, easy to get on with, and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends!

    Passed 27.4.12

    Liliana

    freedomtw Liliana passed with Freedom School of Motoring After some failed attempts to learn to drive, manly due to lack of confidence and
    dealing with unprofessional instructors I decided that it was time to give it another
    go. This time I went for a local instructor and what a difference it be taught by
    Richard, he understood my lack of confidence and helped me to overcome it with an
    impressive patience. I can not recommend him more, if you want truly personalised
    driving lessons as he is able to recognize and tackle your own issues and keep up your
    confidence levels at the same time. Driving can be a very challenging experience to
    people over conscious about the dangers behind the wheels of a car, but thanks to
    instructors like Richard, people like me can overcome fear and gain freedom, so thank
    you very much Richard.

    Passed 11.5.12

    David

    freedomtw David passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard was recommended to me by a friend who spoke very highly of his abilities and professionalism as a driving instructor.

    It was apparent from the start that he is a skilled tutor who provides a first class learning environment for anyone beginning to drive. Richards lessons were reflective of his methodical approach to driving which worked extremely well building my confidence on the roads, his instructions are concise and he provides detailed and thorough explanations of all skills and manoeuvres required to passing the test and becoming a good driver. I did not feel at all pressurised under his supervision when getting behind the wheel, which can always seem somewhat daunting when you first begin. Richard put me at ease straight away and certainly has a lot of patience! Overall it has been a pleasure to learn with Freedom School of Motoring and I would absolutely recommend Richard (who was instrumental in my passing first time) to anyone looking for a first class instructor.

    Passed 14.5.12

He helped to put my nerves at ease with his sense of humour and gave me confidence when I needed it. He´s easy to get along with which really has helped me to be more confidant and relaxed behind the wheel. I never once felt like he was frustrated with me even though I was really stubborn at times. He was always happy to answer all my questions and always made sure he explained it until I understood. Overall, I really enjoyed my lessons with Richard and had a great driving experience.

    Will

    freedomtw Will passed with Freedom School of Motoring Thanks to Richards patience and his keen attention to detail, I was able to pass my driving test first time!
    As a result, I now have a sense of confidence and excitement about going out on my own, discovering new places and building on the knowledge and driving experience gained from my driving lessons.

    Passed 16.7.12

    Irene

    freedomtw Irene passed with Freedom School of Motoring A short attention span plus low confidence and a car equals a dangerous driver, but thanks to Richard he brought my confidence up and I passed first time.He was patient and always motivate me, like any new driver you have good days and terrible ones but he always motivated me through out.I learnt a lot from him in just three months, it was fun, exciting and scary but with a good teacher´s support i got a license :)

    Passed 25.6.12

    Ben

    freedomtw Ben passed with Freedom School of Motoring I found Freedom School of Motoring on the internet when I was searching for a local driving instructor. I'd never been behind the wheel of a car before so was a tad nervous when Richard picked me up on a snowy (!) morning for my first lesson. The lessons are fun, detailed, and go at your own pace of learning and understanding of the manoeuvres, hazards and skills it takes to pass the test successfully. And Richard's patience, thoroughness and perseverance quickly pays off and gives you confidence from the word go! It's never a negative experience, when you have a bad lesson he quickly makes you think positively about what you have to improve upon. In the lessons there's no pressure, the confidence comes in leaps and bounds and even early on a Sunday morning it's easy to enjoy a lesson (whilst talking about the previous days football, normally amongst other things). I passed first time, thank you Richard.

    Passed 15.8.12

    Dan

    freedomtw Dan passed with Freedom School of Motoring Freedom School of Motoring was recommended by another driving instructor which i was really grateful for. I found Richard was a great instructor who made clear what he wants you to do and also delivers great constructive criticism. I was always able to have a lesson when i needed one. Passed first time with 1 minor with the great help of Richard. I would highly recommend Richard as a driving instructor!

    Passed 22.10.12

    Francis

    freedomtw Francis passed with Freedom School of Motoring I was recommended to Richard by a friend, and I haven´t looked back, he was always flexible with fitting me in, even with my difficult working hours and was a fantastic teacher, as is shown by him succeeding in getting me to pass! Apart from him being a Chelsea fan, he was great fun, made you feel comfortable driving and really taught you how to become a better, more confident driver, I wouldn´t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!!

    Passed 23.10.12

    Tim

    freedomtw Tim passed with Freedom School of Motoring As soon as I turned 17, I was eager to get my provisional license and start lessons. From the word go i quickly found Richard to be patient and have a steady progress pace. Having started with absolutely zero experience behind the wheel, I was quickly able to drive to and from my home in Twickenham to my college in Egham, all due to Richard's great instructing and ability to guide you through any situation in a clear and calm manner. It was a pleasure to learn to drive here and I would definitely recommend Freedom to any first timer looking to drive.

    Passed 14.12.12

    Arthur

    freedomtw Arthur passed with Freedom School of Motoring After searching around and asking friends for a good driving instructor, I was recommended Richard by a family friend of mine. Initially I was apprehensive about learning to drive and had waited until now, being 21 years old, to tackle the challenge. Richard made me feel comfortable behind the wheel from the first lesson. It was never a problem to stop and ask him to go over things again or for me to ask questions of my own and him go through them with me. He not only ensures you have the knowledge to pass your test when the day comes, but also the knowledge to remain a good driver after the test, which really is what it's all about. I'm glad Richard was recommended to me and I wouldn't hesitate to pass his details on to anyone else looking for an excellent driving instructor in the future.


    Passed 19.12.12

    Boris

    freedomtw Boris passed with Freedom School of Motoring Speechless would be the word that described that day, both me and Richard enjoyed our lessons together with a lot of fun times, however coming closer to the test date we were both not sure whether I would pass first time round. However thanks to Richards professionalism and experience I walked away with what i needed most . Would 100% recommend Richard to everyone willing to try their best and ENJOY their lessons.

    Passed 14.1.13

    Sophie

    freedomtw Sophie passed with Freedom School of Motoring When I first started driving I was really nervous and had no idea what to do, I thought I would never be able to drive. However because of Richard's great instructing I passed my test first time round. Richard is friendly and deals with every situation in a calm manner. It was a pleasure to learn to drive here and I have even recommended Richard to my friend, who is now happily learning to drive with him too.

    Aimee

    freedomtw Aimee passed with Freedom School of Motoring I really enjoyed learning to drive with Richard. He was always calm and had a great sense of humour which he needed at times with me and easy to get along with!

    Passed 25.1.13

    ADDED COMMENT FROM Sophie's & Aimee's Mum:

    I've known Richard now for 6 years as he taught my eldest daughter to drive. He is a very professional guy and a great instructor. All 3 of my girls passed their theory and practical tests first time round, you can't get a better recommendation than that!

    Robert

    freedomtw Robert passed with Freedom School of Motoring I would definitely recommend Richard, his sense of humour and calm nature allowed me to progress confidently as a driver. With his help I was able to pass first time on both the theory and the practical parts of the test. I was very lucky to have been introduced to him and have made sure my brother will have lessons with him in a few months time!

    Passed 28.1.13

    Paige

    freedomtw Paige passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard has been my families instructor, including my older brother and sisters. They all passed with Richard so having him as a driving instructor was a "must have" for me! He is a patient, pleasant person, and his jokes aren't too bad either! I passed my test first time with Richard and I would recommend him to anyone. Once again, thank you Richard! :)))

    Passed 18.2.13

    William

    freedomtw William passed with Freedom School of Motoring I found freedom school of motoring a perfect way to learn to drive, Richard provides excellent advice and pushes you in the right direction to get a fluid driving style out of you. Richard dealt with my nerves and extreme caution really well, allowing me by the end to pass first time - no better endorsement really than that.

    Passed 11.3.13

    Jonathan

    freedomtw Jonathan passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is a very friendly and effective teacher. He makes learning to drive simple and is a pleasure to spend 90 minutes with.I was recommended Richard by a former pupil and I would certainly do the same myself. I have no doubt anyone starting out with Richard is on the road to success.

    Passed 12/4/13

    Tom

    freedomtw Tom passed with Freedom School of Motoring Working varying hours in a full-time job, it was always going to be hard finding the time to learn how to drive, but Rich always helped to fit in a lesson around my busy schedule. He is a great and very patient teacher, who will always make the lessons a good laugh with his witty humour. I 100% recommend learning with this guy - not only will you pass confidently, you will have great fun doing it!

    Passed 29.4.13

    Josie

    freedomtw Josie passed with Freedom School of Motoring I passed my test first time with Richard with not a single driving fault. I was not in any particular hurry to pass and therefore spent more time perfecting my driving skills before applying for my test. Richard is a very friendly and approachable instructor and was very patient with me when I made errors, which was fairly often to begin with. He was very accommodating in fitting me into a permanent weekly time slot that suited me and my university schedule. I will definitely recommend him to everyone. His terrible jokes will be sorely missed!

    Passed 1.5.13

    Adrian

    freedomtw Adrian passed with Freedom School of Motoring Both Richard & Stuart were great tutors - clear, calm, expert and easy to understand instructions.

    Passed 29.5.13

    Josh

    freedomtw Josh passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard was a really good teacher who managed to explain things in a simple and clear manner which could easily be understood. I feel Richard progressed the lessons at a really good pace and also was really flexible with lessons fitting them around my busy schedule. Richard made learning to drive a pleasurable fun experience which enabled me to pass first time. Richard managed to build up my confidence to drive. I believe that if you have previously struggled with learning how to drive Richard would be an ideal driving instructor for you as he manages to make you feel at ease whilst making the lessons engaging and effective.

    Natalia

    freedomtw Natalia passed with Freedom School of Motoring Thank you very much to my instructor Richard, for being very patient with me. Few words I would like to say about this guy.

Thank you very much!

    Passed 3.6.13

    Emillia

    freedomtw Emillia passed with Freedom School of Motoring I would like to say many thanks to my driving instructor Richard. I never imagined being able to drive in my life before I started having driving lessons with him. He was always extremely patient, professional and knowledgeable and what is most important he was very accommodating and he let me drive with my baby in the back. I enjoyed learning to drive with him, passed first time and I would recommend Freedom Driving School to anyone.
    Also once again thank you very much for putting up with me. It was a pleasure to have such a lovely instructor like you! I'm driving with Freddie every day and I'm loving it. :-))

    Passed 4.7.13

    Matthew

    freedomtw Matthew passed with Freedom School of Motoring Passed first time, definitely down to Richard´s teaching. After 4 lessons with a different driving school I thought driving wasn´t for me. My mum told me to try my brother´s instructor (Richard) and after 1 lesson I became confident and happy to carry on. I found Richard friendly, patient and a brilliant teacher overall start to finish.

    Mum´s comment:

    I can recommend Richard to anyone thinking about learning to drive, especially if you are not confident about driving. 90 minute lessons are a perfect time amount too and works out more economical. I can´t believe Matt passed first time!

    Passed 7.8.13

    Dean

    freedomtw Dean passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard taught both myself and my wife to drive, and we would both recommend him to anyone wanting to take driving lessons. He is very patient, friendly and helps you to relax and feel confident behind the wheel. His teaching skills and ability reflects in his feedback and pass success rate. We both passed first time and that is down to having such an amazing teacher. We can’t thank him enough

    Passed 6.8.13

    Ellie

    freedomtw Ellie passed with Freedom School of Motoring "Learning to drive went from being daunting to enjoyable with Richard. He definitely takes your individual needs as a learner into account and makes sure you're as comfortable as possible while still pushing you to get out of your comfort zone and really drive! Great sense of humour and so easy to get along with, made the whole process enjoyable. Just a brilliant teacher in every sense, would recommend him to everyone!"

    Passed 9.9.13

    Sam

    freedomtw Sam passed with Freedom School of Motoring I passed first time and it was definitely thanks to Richard. He's a friendly, encouraging and patient teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and became confident under Richards guidance. He lived up the to all the lovely things my friends and family, whom he had taught, had said about him. I would recommend Richard to anyone looking for a driving instructor.

    Passed 11.9.13

    Maria

    freedomtw Maria passed with Freedom School of Motoring FREEDOM!!! I think this says it all as today I passed my test first time and now I have the freedom to get about. Richard was recommended to me by friends and they spoke highly of him. I was nervous and wary of starting lessons at my age but I need not have worried at all. Richard is an AMAZING teacher, so patient and explains everything thoroughly as many times as you need it. Richard doesn't just tell you what to do he explains why it is done that way. I can honestly say that every lesson was hard work but I always finished a lesson feeling like I had achieved something, Richard pushes you to do better on every lesson and I never got bored of learning. I have already been out for my first drive today and even though I was a bit scared it really was an exhilarating feeling of doing it by yourself. I cannot praise Richard enough, if I had to do it all again I would not hesitate in going to Richard again, I will be doing a motorway lesson with him in the near future and I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know as I know his very high standards will get you passing first time. Once again Richard thank you very much, you are an awesome teacher!

    Passed 10.1.14

    Colin

    freedomtw Colin passed with Freedom School of Motoring I am happy to report I passed my test on the first attempt. I would like to say thank you to Richard for his excellent instruction over the past few months. I previously held a Canadian drivers licence for about 12 years, but having lived in the UK for 10+ years, it was time to re-qualify for a UK licence. Needless to say my previous driving experience involved me building up a number of bad habits. Additionally, the driving system in the UK is significantly different than in Canada, just one point being driving on the left side of the road. Richard was able to break down my behaviour and habits through the lessons and has rebuilt me into a more knowledgeable, alert, observant, confident and safe driver.

    Richard explains concepts very clearly and pushed me to get better and better each time. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a professional driving instructor.


    Passed 15.1.14

    Ja´tila

    freedomtw Ja´tila passed with Freedom School of Motoring Passed first time with Richard! I failed twice previously with a different instructor from back home (as I live in Twickenham for university) I needed an instructor who could push me to levels higher than expected so I could finally pass my test, I saw Richards car in Teddington and noticed the learner successfully completed a hill start which is what failed me previously so I quickly noted the number and rang straight away! If they could do it so could I with good practise and from my 3rd lesson I was performing them great! Richard is a great teacher, extremely professional and friendly! we always had a laugh every lesson and he teaches you everything at a much higher standard so when it comes to your test its so easy and your test just feels like a normal drive, I would honestly recommend Richard to anyone who wants to pass their test, he makes learning to drive fun and relaxed! get booking guys!

    Passed 3.2.14

    Danae

    freedomtw Danae passed with Freedom School of Motoring I found Richard to be an excellent Driving instructor!

    I had previously failed my practical driving test with a different instructor. That had put me off driving for a long time but Richard's teaching methods soon brought back the confidence and built up the skills that I needed to pass the test. He is calm, patient and has a good sense of humour, that made the lessons always something to look forward to. Thank you!


    Passed 20.2.14

    Paolo

    freedomtw Paolo passed with Freedom School of Motoring I first approached Richard about teaching me to drive after having had very poor experience with my previous instructor. The difference between them was worlds apart. After reading the numerous positive testimonials on his site and going through my initial 2-3 lessons, I knew that he would be able to help me pass first time. His calm demeanour and clear and concise teaching style ensured that I quickly gained confidence and genuinely enjoyed my lessons with him. He really got me out of my comfort zone and was always very constructive with his analysis and feedback. In addition, because he had set such a high standard of driving for me to aspire to, it meant that when it came to the test itself, I found it much easier than expected. He's a great bloke (supporting Chelsea aside!) and I couldn't recommend Richard more to anyone looking to pass first time. Fantastic teacher.

    Passed 19.3.14

    Max

    freedomtw Max passed with Freedom School of Motoring Passed first time! My confidence when I started learning to drive was very poor but Richards patience and excellent teaching turned it from a daunting chore into something I enjoyed. Initially I thought learning would take me at least a year but Richard got me up to test standard in a matter of months and the test itself seemed easy! Richard is relaxed, has a good sense of humour and is a great instructor making the learning process a breeze, would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you very much Richard!

    Passed 9.4.14

    Annabel

    freedomtw Annabel passed with Freedom School of Motoring Without a doubt the best instructor and will be recommending him for years! I wasn't the most confident driver to begin with but straight away Richard made me feel calm and in control. He was always very patient with me and a very motivating teacher! He explains everything in perfect detail and made sure I was thoroughly prepared for the test. I can't thank him enough for pushing me to that pass! I will definitely miss the laughs we had.

    Shannon

    freedomtw Shannon passed with Freedom School of Motoring I didn't have much confidence when I started driving and was very nervous, but this changed when I met Richard. He is a very patient teacher and will go over something as many times as needed during his lessons. He always gives good feedback and gets you ready quickly to take your test. Driving is made a lot easier because Richard has a great sense of humour and is very light-hearted. I was recommended to this driving school by a friend and I would also recommend it to anyone.

    Passed 6.5.14

    Harry

    freedomtw Harry passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is an excellent driving instructor, he put me at ease from the moment I got In the car, the instructions he gave me were explained clearly which made it a lot easier, I have recommend him to all of my friends. Thanks Richard :)

    Mums comment:

    I was really nervous when getting in Harry's car after he passed (he's only 17) but I was surprisingly relaxed and didn't feel the need to check him or give him any advice and I have no need to worry, when he is on the road alone as I feel he has had the best instructor possible.

    Passed 6.6.14

    Kerry

    freedomtw Kerry passed with Freedom School of Motoring I asked Richard for lessons as I heard great reviews. Not only did he help my 3 sisters and a brother pass I passed first time :) I am a very nervous person when in the car and he put my mind at ease and made me feel comfortable straight away! Overall Richard was a brilliant teacher who not only explains things so well but puts the fun into learning! I never had a boring lesson and although I could be hard at times to teach I passed first time.I am so greatful I went with Richard and have already passed his name onto others. Thank you so much!!!

    Ahmet

    freedomtw Ahmet passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard has taught quite a few friends and family to drive, so when I decided it was time for me to start learning, Richard was the only one to call! Richard is very reliable and was very patient with me as English is my second language, but despite this he enabled me to pass my test within months. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to drive.

    Craig

    freedomtw Craig passed with Freedom School of Motoring Passed first time! I waited a lot longer than many of my friends before I started to learn to drive because I didn't really trust myself to be on the roads but even after my first lesson with Richard I felt much more at ease . Driving lessons with Richard were always relaxed and enjoyable mainly due to his great sense of humour. I felt that in each lesson I progressed towards being able to pass my test, avoiding completely the frustration that many of my friends have told me about from their experience of endless lessons without any sign of progression. Not only is Richard patient and understanding but he also has an attention to detail which encourages you to excel beyond the point of just passing your test. When it came to my test it felt like a normal drive and I felt comfortable on the road by myself straight after passing. All thanks to Richard's great teaching. I would recommend Richard to anyone looking for a driving instructor!

    Passed 18.3.14

    Leah

    freedomtw Leah passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is an extremely professional and reliable instructor, who takes great pride in his lessons and even more in seeing his students pass. I'm enormously grateful for all his instruction and know that I'm a better driver for it. I'm sure I will hear his familiar phrases ringing in my ears as I set out on my own... and that will be a comfort

    Passed 28.8.14

    Anthony

    freedomtw Anthony passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is a brilliant teacher. He's very clear when explaining situations and makes sure you understand what he's telling you. He's informative, very witty and very patient. He is definitely not your average instructor.

    Passed 27.8.14

    Andrew

    freedomtw Andrew passed with Freedom School of Motoring Learning to drive can be a very stressful experience, but being taught by Richard made it so much easier. After having a few lessons with another instructor, I really noticed the improvement when
    learning with Richard, he not only teaches what to do but why to do it. Rather than just teaching
    you how to move a car along a road, Richard teaches you to drive safely, economically and in a
    way that is healthy for the car. With his motto of ‘practise hard, pass easy’, Richard pushes you to
    a standard that is far higher than that of the practical test, always encouraging you to be the best
    driver you can possibly be. I’m sure that the reason I passed first time was because of Richard’s calm
    and friendly style of teaching and I would recommend him to anyone.

    Passed 17.9.14

    Maria

    freedomtw Maria passed with Freedom School of Motoring I'd like to thank Richard for everything once again, his professionalism and clear explanations, his sense of humor, for being calm, patient and friendly. Driving was not coming naturally to me, but Richard made the learning process really easy and enjoyable.

    I could not believe how effortless the test was after learning to drive with him! I will not hesitate recommending his school to anyone looking for a great driving instructor in our area.

    Passed 22.9.14

    Angela

    freedomtw Angela passed with Freedom School of Motoring I had previously tried one of the bigger motoring schools, and just wasn’t very satisfied. So I was lead to Richard by a high recommendation given to me by my brother, who he’d also taught to drive (and passed 1st time!), all I can say is that I was not disappointed!
    I am so happy that I found this driving school and to have had such a brilliant learning experience along the way. He’s one heck of a teacher, always managing to finely blend together his knowledge and experience with his never ending patience and to dust it all off with a wicked sense of humour. I got so much out of these lessons not just how to drive, but how to be confident and also know how to handle those roads and what other road users might throw at you.
    He pushed me to be the best I could be, in a gentle but encouraging way and he does this for a reason because it not only simply prepared me for my test but also so my standard of driving was high enough so that I could get out in the real independent world of driving straight after without hesitating and GO!
    Definitely recommend this driving school for anyone and everyone, if you’ve got the desire to go from provisional to PRO then this is your guy!
    Thank you Richard for all your support and patience, it was a brilliant journey!

    Passed 9.10.14

    Harry

    freedomtw Harry passed with Freedom School of Motoring It would be safe to say that I was a reluctant driver. I kept putting off learning but my parents convinced me that it was a necessary life skill to have. Upon the recommendation of a friend, I chose Richard as my instructor and what a good decision it was! He teaches you more than just how to pass your test, he teaches you how to be a good driver. Rather than just telling you what to do, he tells you why you should do it and I think that’s really important. It’s not all high pressure though, he’s also a really nice, funny guy, it’s just a shame that he’s a Chelsea fan! I’d recommend him to anyone learning to drive.

    Passed 3.10.14

    Matthew

    freedomtw Matthew passed with Freedom School of Motoring I was very happy to be taught by Richard. He was helpful with the whole process from the theory test to choosing a suitable test centre for the practical exam. Having failed twice I know how it feels, but Richard never lost faith and kept on teaching me in order to make sure I passed the third time which I did with only two minors. Richard was very flexible with the lesson planning and was available at all times of the day, even 7 am. I would not hesitate to recommend Freedom Driving to anyone who looking to learn to drive.

    Passed 24.11.14

    Charlotte

    freedomtw Charlotte passed with Freedom School of Motoring By far the best driving instructor out there! Fact.
    After previously trying to learn to drive with another instructor, I eventually gave up as I felt that I was getting nowhere and if anything, my confidence was dropping rather than increasing but after being given such high recommendations from a few friends, I decided to start the learning process again, this time, with Richard. Never have I been more grateful to have found such a wonderful driving instructor! I genuinely cannot fault Richard’s teaching skills one bit! As soon as I started learning to drive with Richard, I was excited for every single lesson, as I knew that I was improving each time and my confidence grew drastically. Richard explains everything so thoroughly, and will continue to do so until you are 100% confident enough to do it without his help. His patient, calm and enthusiastic nature gives you an enjoyable experience as you learn to drive, something that a lot of people would usually deem stressful! Not only is Richard a brilliant teacher, but his great sense of humour makes every lesson an entertaining one! Consider it an added bonus! I definitely recommend Richard to anyone and everyone who wants to pass their driving test with confidence and ease! Thank you so much for leading me to that pass Richard!!! You’re a star!!

    Passed 12.11.14

    Joey

    freedomtw Joey passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard has taught myself, my brother and his friend to drive after finding him online, passing him along after each success story. I have used 3 different companies, including AA and it was under Richard´s tutelage that I learnt the best. His approach of patience, persistence, enthusiasm and subtle nagging (always a good thing when learning to drive) combines to create a fun yet very productive learning environment whereby I picked up the rules of the road very quickly. His clear and coherent way of explaining things meant I didn´t progress without understanding completely what was required around every corner and quickly I built up a comprehensive knowledge of the road. Richard strives to make every student become the best driver they can be through expert knowledge and an injection of fun. I´m so happy to have now passed my practical and will definitely keep in contact with him as I will miss the football chats and the rude jokes! Richard you’re a legend!

    Passed 26.1.15

    Joanna

    freedomtw Joanna passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is a great teacher and I feel confident recommending him to any of my family or friends!
    I was a very nervous driving to begin with, reluctant to drive more than 5mph!! However with Richard´s help and guidance I´ve grown in confidence and passed my test first time :)
    His lessons where very well structured, informative and clear. I always knew what I was trying to achieve and why!
    Richard uses a variety of teaching methods and really adapted the lessons to suit me, if I didn´t understand something he thought of other ways to explain and helped me visualise exactly what I was trying to do. There were times when I got frustrated with myself but Richard always stayed calm, relaxed and kept me smiling and laughing!
    Richard was very flexible with his lessons and made it possible for me to fit them around my work.
    When I changed to a job in central London a few months before my test, I was worried it would mean I couldn´t fit my lessons in any more. But Richard was great and so understanding and taught me very (very very very) early in the morning!
    When it came to my driving test I was of course nervous but felt confident, calm and well prepared and very happily passed!!

    Passed 10.2.15

    Neil

    freedomtw Neil passed with Freedom School of Motoring I have never liked driving but the imminent arrival of our first child meant I had to finally learn to drive (and on a time schedule). Rich was excellent, patient, clear, understanding, thorough and with a good sense of humour which helped alleviate the stress of the experience. Rich got me through when three other instructors hadn´t in the past. Highly recommended!"

    Passed 9.3.15

    Augusta

    freedomtw Augusta  passed with Freedom School of Motoring I never ever thought I would be a driver but I now am and I am absolutely sure that is due to the patience, skill and reassurance that Richard provides. He is a perfectionist, which means that I am now confident but he is also laid back and a genuinely lovely person who makes you feel he is right there with you throughout the process. Richard cares about his pupils and his work and I would have no reservations in recommending him to teach anyone to drive.

    Passed 4.3.15

    Jamie

    freedomtw Jamie passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is a good teacher that explains everything clearly. He is calm and did everything at a pace to suit me. I feel he helped me become a good, calm driver and he made learning to drive a pleasurable experience. Richard has taught most of my family to drive and they have all passed first time. Thanks again Richard.

    Passed 11.6.15

    Blade

    freedomtw Blade passed with Freedom School of Motoring I was a somewhat an advanced driver on a international license, but Richard ironed out all the bad habits and I passed with flying colours in June 2015, faults: none on test day.
    Richard is very professional, skilled and offers local knowledge of the roads while teaching you to be a responsible driver. Very good fees, great with time keeping and offered me great support to cool off the nerves on the test day. My results speak for themselves.
    Highly recommended to everyone in need of a good and trustworthy driving instructor.
    Thank you very much.

    Katie

    freedomtw Katie passed with Freedom School of Motoring ´Just wanted to thank Richard for all his help when teaching me how to drive. Although initially nervous he helped me build confidence when driving and was always positive and encouraging. I passed my practical driving test with only two minors. I can´t recommend him highly enough!

    kayleigh

    freedomtw kayleigh passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is a hard working teacher who succeeded very well in teaching me to drive. He is very professional and taught me brilliantly. I feel I know how to drive safely and calmly and keep away from all the bad habits. Richard was very calm with me and gave me the best possibly driving experience.

    Passed 29.7.15

    Lily

    freedomtw Lily passed with Freedom School of Motoring I am very grateful to Richard for his great instruction and support these last months. He was consistently punctual and reliable which was greatly appreciated. Furthermore, he always tried his utmost to work around my schedule and was as accommodating as possible.




    Richard is a consummate professional, instilling confidence and trust in his learners. He has exceptionally high standards, not only teaching to help students pass their practical test but to be the best drivers possible. If you can meet Richard’s driving standards, passing the practical will be a breeze.

    Passed 18.9.15

    Louella

    freedomtw Louella passed with Freedom School of Motoring As an exceptionally nervous, scatty and un co-ordinate individual I have put off learning to drive as long as I possibly could, virtually ruling it out - until I had driving lessons with Richard that is!! He put up with my stressing making me feel totally at ease and offered the best learning-to-drive experience I could have asked for. He was patient and tailored each lesson to exactly what I needed to help me succeed. Would highly recommend, thank you so much Richard!!!!

    25.9.15

    Joseph

    freedomtw Joseph passed with Freedom School of Motoring Like all new drivers I was worried about driving and putting myself and everyone around me at risk. Not only did Richard quickly give me the confidence to get over this fear, but he did it in a manner where I felt in control the entire way through. He was able to do this by working to a pace I felt comfortable on top of pushing me to do better. Now I am one of the first people to be driving in my school and I have Richard to thank for that. Could not have asked for a better instructor.

    21.9.15

    Edwell

    freedomtw Edwell passed with Freedom School of Motoring I passed my driving test on my first attempt and I am very thankful to Richard for this. My wife also took her licence under Richard´s instruction and she naturally recommended him to me and he has once again lived up to both our expectations. I would recommend him to anyone the same way we were recommended to him by others. He is patient and so easy to get along with, yet thorough in his own way.

    11.11.15

    Bethanie

    freedomtw Bethanie passed with Freedom School of Motoring Having previously had lessons with a bigger driving school, I found that I just wasn’t benefitting from the teaching style. So after leaving driving lessons for over a year, I was recommended to Richard through family friends as he had taught most of their family. I was definitely not the best driver, but the way Richard teaches you completely puts you at ease. He lets you go at your own pace and simplifies everything so that it’s a lot easier to understand. Not only that, but he is genuinely one of the nicest people I’ve met, and extremely patient. Thank you for everything.
    PS Thank you for putting up with me

    Passed 20.1.16

    Jack

    freedomtw Jack passed with Freedom School of Motoring I first took lessons with a larger company when I was 18. They made driving seem dull so I never finished them and got a motorbike instead.
    When moving from two wheels to four became a necessity, I was recommended Richard and can honestly say that he was excellent. I passed first time with very few minors and this was definitely due to Richard´s teaching technique and encouragement. I felt confident enough that I bought myself a van as my first "car" and haven´t looked back. Brilliant teacher, would recommend to anyone and everyone.

    Passed 2.2.16

    Mirela

    freedomtw Mirela passed with Freedom School of Motoring I´d like to thank Richard for his excellent tuition, which was always clear, calm and enjoyable. As a result I passed first time and I’ am delighted. Richard was also very flexible, when I changed jobs by accommodating lessons at different times and days. I wouldn´t hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone who wants to learn to drive. Thanks again, for all your help and support.

    Passed 4.3.16

    Elliot

    freedomtw Elliot passed with Freedom School of Motoring I managed to pass my driving test first time only having 2 minors.
    Richard had a calm and concise approach throughout all my lessons, which I felt was reflected in my drive on examination day. As well as being very patient, he was attentive to my speed and mirror checking which ensured I didn’t fall into any bad habits. Richard was forever helpful and asking question was always no trouble. Within lessons there was always a focus on my weaknesses, which helped me improve as a driver in a shorter amount of time.
    As well as being an excellent instructor Richard is a genuinely nice bloke and I was able to ease in and out of conversation with him whilst driving. This made me feel relaxed and comfortable, thereby making the entire experience more enjoyable.
    I was very glad that Richard’s details were passed on to me and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Passed 8.4.2016

    Katherine

    freedomtw Katherine passed with Freedom School of Motoring I successfully passed my driving test first time with 3 minors.

    Richard is a very patient driving instructor who managed to stay calm at all times, which was incredibly important to me as I was very nervous about learning to drive. Having had lessons in the past, I found that Richard successfully put me at ease and I never felt that any mistake I made or question I asked was stupid. He is extremely calm and managed to get me over the fear of parallel parking (which I never thought I would be able to do!)

    He was able to constantly prompt me to check mirrors and other procedures consistently without making me feel under pressure so that my confidence grew with each lesson.

    He was very understanding of my schedule and adapted my lesson times around my working hours as well as arranging extra lessons when I was on holiday.

    Richard’s calm approach as well as a fantastic sense of humour made him easy to talk to and be in a car with during lessons.

    I would undoubtedly recommend Richard to anyone.

    Thank you Richard!

    Annie

    freedomtw Annie passed with Freedom School of Motoring "I managed to pass my driving test first time with two minors!

    Richard’s first ten lessons are great because he gets you driving (traffic lights, mini roundabouts etc) and enjoying it. My best friend learnt at the same time as me with a different instructor and spent the first ten lessons not doing a lot, which she said was very boring.

    Richard is adaptable to how you learn, and will draw pictures, show you photographs and maps, and send you videos if you need it.

    Richard was very, very patient - even one year into lessons when I still couldn’t remember where I was or where I was going! He would find a way to make me laugh at my weaknesses so that at the end of the lesson I felt good and looked forward to the next one. At the end of each lesson, he would give me a mini summary of the lesson.

    Richard will talk to you when you need/want or stay quiet because it is 6am and you’re tired!

    When I changed jobs and could no longer do a set day and time, he always managed to fit me into his busy schedule, going out of his way to make sure I got the lessons I needed, along with everyone else in his schedule.

    You will have a laugh and pass feeling confident, which is awesome".

    Passed 11.5.16

    Amy

    freedomtw Amy passed with Freedom School of Motoring October 2015 looking for a driving instructor in the Feltham area, I was recommended by two friends who had previously and currently taught by Richard.
    I’m so happy that my friends recommended Richard. We are all very different characters with very different learning styles, so it defiantly showed he could adapt easily to each individual.
    From lesson one, he picked up my learning techniques and whereabouts of my driving level, as I had some previous driving experience. I felt really comfortable, and well wasn’t long before I started really enjoying my lessons.
    Richard really understood the test routes and what is expected by the examiners of the highest standard, which then reflected onto me.
    Focussing on what I felt unconfident with (roundabouts) until I felt happy. Although all my lessons were super varied and always based around what I wanted and what he thought I needed to work on.
    Lessons easily fitted with my schedule and Richard was super understanding of my crazy schedule as Cabin Crew, my work times change quite a bit. Plus sometimes jet lag makes me tired and sometimes grumpy :D sorry Rich…. Always soon turned back into laughter!!!
    I’m happy to say 9months later I have passed my test. I passed second time however 1st time was because I was a nervous wreck (couldn’t even hold my car keys properly), but second time after bit more practice, I passed and with no minors!!!!!!!!! I couldn’t be happier 
    Now looking forward to getting my first car and conquer the roads solo.
    I’m going to miss my front seat passenger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Passed 2.8.16

    Charlotte

    freedomtw Charlotte passed with Freedom School of Motoring I was recommended Richard and I´m grateful I did. I was always nervous about starting driving lessons but Richard really helped calm my nerves. He is a great instructor and picked up on what I needed to focus on the most and found great techniques that helped me. He was so patient and calm. I passed second time with only 3 minors (failed as I was so nervous). I´m super glad Richard taught me how to drive and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.

    Bernadette

    freedomtw Bernadette passed with Freedom School of Motoring I would highly recommend being taught by Richard to pass your driving test!
    I passed second time with four minors.
    Richard is a great instructor, easy to get on with, makes you feel at ease, can be flexible with your schedule and is extremely thorough.
    Richard knows the test areas very well and is very knowledgeable of the high standards of driving required by the examiners .
    If you want to learn to drive and pass then Richards the man!:)

    Passed 24.8.16

    Katherine

    freedomtw Katherine passed with Freedom School of Motoring With Richards help, I managed to pass my test the first time with 3 minors. I already had a USA driving license, but I needed to learn to drive a manual car and to drive on UK roads (much scarier than the US roads I was used to!). Richard is a good and patient teacher, explaining things very thoroughly and in a helpful way. He is also a very calm passenger, remaining so even when I made mistakes, which in turn helped me to relax in the drivers seat. My lessons were varied and interesting, with a mixture of driving around and practicing manoeuvres. If there was something in particular I wanted to work on, Richard was always happy to accommodate.
    Richard has very high standards and is quick to prompt and advise you towards meeting those standards (he doesn’t miss anything if you’re speeding by 1 mph, or if you miss a mirror check, he will always know!). Thanks to Richards thorough teaching style, by the day of my practical test, I was confident that I was as well prepared. In the end, my test felt positively easy after Richards lessons!

    Passed 23.9.16

    Alex

    freedomtw Alex passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard has been a great instructor from day 1, having both the patience and teaching style that suited my needs. His calm but attentive approach to all aspects of driving, coupled with a great sense of humour meant that learning to drive was a pleasure not a chore. Very professional (but not a square), always on time and all-round top bloke. Would recommend him to anyone. Cheers!

    Passed 6.10.16

    Kieren

    freedomtw Kieren passed with Freedom School of Motoring My journey with Richard started many moons ago, when he first pulled up and I got into the car I honestly didn´t think we´d get on. This was party due to the Chelsea flag by the back window but also because we had different opinions of James O´Brien the LBC chat show host but I quickly managed to get passed these small details when the quality of my driving really improved.
    Rich is really personable and has a great teaching style enticing you to work out answers for yourself as opposed to just telling you what to do, I felt this style of coaching was far more engaging and kept me focused and interested every session.
    After a long lay off due to personal reasons, when I resurfaced and set getting a pink license as my primary objective, I had no question as to the perfect person to help me achieve my goal and as of the 9th November that goal was fulfilled!
    On that note I´ll also say that I booked a cancellation at the completely wrong test centre but due to the skills Richard had taught me, I felt completely confident and nailed my goal.
    I highly recommend Richard to anyone searching the market for a driving instructor....as long as you can tolerate that terrible Chelsea flag.

    Passed 9.11.16

    Katie

    freedomtw Katie passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard was recommended to me by family friends and I am very happy that they did. Richard is friendly, patient and has a good sense of humour! His teaching style is very engaging and easy to understand, meaning I felt like I accomplished a lot in each lesson and that every time I had a lesson I was improving my driving skills and becoming a lot more confident. Richard knows the test centre areas very well and teaches you so that your driving is to a high standard so not only do you feel confident for your test but confident after passing to go off on your own.

    Passed 28.11.16

    Flutura

    freedomtw Flutura passed with Freedom School of Motoring I started driving lessons with a driving school, however found the instructor to be very impatient and didn’t seem to want me to succeed. However, a friend (who also passed first time with Richard) recommended him and I couldn’t of done it without him. He is patient, motivating and really knows how to prepare you for the test. He told me when he thought I was ready and I passed first time – something I never thought would happen!
    I have recommended Richard to my neighbour and my son has already had lessons with him, he is truly amazing.

    Passed 10.1.17

    Megan

    freedomtw Megan passed with Freedom School of Motoring I highly recommend Richard as a driving instructor. He is very patient, friendly and has a great sense of humour, which was helpful to relax a nervous first time driver like myself. He gives lots of positive encouragement which gave me the confidence to pass my driving test first time. Thank you so much Richard I never would have done it without you.

    Passed 20.2.17

    Hollie

    freedomtw Hollie passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard was recommended to me through a friend and I would recommend him to others as he is a great instructor. He is very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole process. He was also very clear and calm when teaching, which made me feel confident when driving.

    Passed 14.3.17

    Amy

    freedomtw Amy passed with Freedom School of Motoring I wouldn’t have been able to pass my test without Richard. He has infinite patience, calmness and wisdom in all situations and never seems to get annoyed or frustrated with you(even after he had repeated whatever guidance/ instruction to me for the umpteenth time, and I still hadn’t got it right – I wasn’t deliberately ignoring you, Richard, I’m just pathetic!). I had had lessons before with other instructors, but I really thought that driving was not for me and had given up. When I started taking lessons again more recently with Richard, I felt like a complete beginner, having forgotten everything. I am a particularly anxious driver, I don’t like driving and have wondered many times why I am bothering learning to drive. I very soon felt at ease in the car with Richard though. It did take me a while to get to pass standard, but I was happy to take things more slowly so that when I did take the test I was better prepared for it and had a greater chance of passing. I can’t say that the process was completely pain free, but in the end with perseverance(after I had ‘given up’ a couple of times more) I did pass after my 2nd test with Richard. 4th time overall.
    I passed with one minor fault and the examiners (I had a Senior Examiner sat in the back) were very complimentary about my driving (nicest examiners ever!)that outcome was pretty much all down to Richard’s teaching. So, to sum up(!), if you live in his catchment area and want to learn to drive well, you’d be crazy not to learn to drive with Richard. If you don’t live in his catchment area, I would strongly encourage you to move there that’s how good he is! Thank you, Richard.

    Passed 30.3.17

    Ashleigh

    freedomtw Ashleigh passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard has been an excellent instructor. His style of teaching is perfect, knowing when to push you harder and when to coax you softly. He coped with my 6am moodiness, which deserves an award in itself! and gave me the confidence that I didn´t think I had. I honestly don´t think I would have passed 1st time with any other instructor. I would recommend Richard to anyone.

    Toni

    freedomtw Toni passed with Freedom School of Motoring Thanks to Richard, I passed my driving test first time. Throughout my time learning to drive I always had fun due to having such a good instructor. To begin with I was very nervous and worried about being on the road but having such a calm instructor made me over come this quickly and easily. I would highly recommend Richard as a driving instructor.

    Passed 8.6.17

    Charlie

    freedomtw Charlie passed with Freedom School of Motoring Thanks to Richard, I was able to pass my driving test first time. At first I was nervous about driving and felt I wouldn´t be any good and was worried about how the instructor would react at first, but I have to say with Richard he makes you feel very relaxed and makes it a comfortable environment to practice in. Therefore at a steady pace I was able to learn driving rather well and pass first time, I would highly recommend Richard as an instructor to start to learn how to drive, as it was enjoyable and it´s a lot better when you pass first time.


    Passed 22.6.17

    Mason

    freedomtw Mason passed with Freedom School of Motoring With Richards help I was able to pass first time, even though I doubted myself. Richard is a nice guy and very easy to talk to. When it comes to teaching he is patient, clear with instructions and precise. I couldn´t recommend him more! I am very grateful as I couldn´t have done it without him. He is by far the best around.

    Passed 12.7.17

    Luke

    freedomtw Luke passed with Freedom School of Motoring Richard is a fantastic instructor very calm and understanding with lots of knowledge of the roads and how to pass the test. He´s very reliable not missing one of my lessons and was always punctual. My time spent with Richard was never boring always had a good banter. I´m a student and I decided to get my license because I wanted to be able to drive to university and back home. I had a deadline of the end of August/ early September and I passed in July. I would recommend Richard to everyone and anyone who wants to get their licence but also have a greater knowledge of the roads and other drivers.

    Passed 5.7.17

    Ben

    freedomtw Ben passed with Freedom School of Motoring I want to say a huge thank you to my driving instructor Richard. Learning to drive at the age of 40 meant I had built up a lot of anxiety about it over the years and began the lessons as a fairly nervous driver. However, Richard was extremely sensitive of this and patient with me. He built on my confidence as a driver through his calm approach and provided me with the best preparation I could have asked for. Richard was honest and constructive and the lessons were filled with encouragement and guidance. It was great to learn from someone that is passionate about teaching driving and really knows their stuff. I would highly recommend Richard, having passed my test I am now loving driving and I really owe that to him!
