Richard is an absolutely amazing instructor, he is always calm and collected. Very good at making you feel confident while driving and lessons were always enjoyable. The use of the progress tracking app and everything helped so much in getting me to reflect on each lesson to see where i was at and what i need to improve on. Overall he helped me pass first time, months before my original target. Extremely pleased.
I would highly recommend Richard at Excel. Having been let down by an intensive driving company, I contacted Richard to see if he could help. Straight away, he was extremely helpful, communicative and went out of his way to help my daughter get the lessons that she needed to have booked in before her test. He is such a kind, genuine and caring person as well as being a very good driving instructor who explains things very clearly. The app that he uses is great for letting students know exactly what they still need to focus on. He was always reliable, on time and very professional. I am so glad we found him. Thank you so much for all your help.
Highly recommend Richard and ExceL Driver Training Ltd. Excellent, quality instruction, calm, professional and supportive with an added bit of fun thrown in. Tom has thoroughly enjoyed his time with you, learning this skill of a lifetime! Thank you!
Thank you Aiden, you have been absolutely superb in looking after Matthew which resulted in him passing first time this morning. You have been friendly, professional and always on time, mainly early to appointments. Matthew has enjoyed every minute of the lessons and we cannot thank you enough for what you have done for him. We would highly recommend you to anyone that would like to learn to drive,you have been outstanding,thank you.
A huge thank you to first of Richard for starting my driving lesson with me and teaching me a few important things at the start of my learner journey. Second of all, a massive thank you to Aiden who has been my outstanding driving instructor for the last 8/9 months or so who has taught me almost everything I know and has helped me immensely in order to pass my test. I would highly recommend these gentlemen to be your driving instructor because not only are the fantastic at their job, they are also very lovely people to just be around and talk to as well. Thank you for everything. And I can honestly say I will miss seeing Aiden every week for our lessons
Brilliant, calm and competent instructor.Due to having many breaks in his lessons with a previous instructor and also covid lockdowns getting in the way, my sons confidence had been knocked. Richard worked closely with him and got him back thinking positively about his driving.Will definitely use Excel again.

Aiden was such an amazing instructor. Can’t fault him, always willing to change how he teaches something to adjust you. Has the patients of a Saint especially when you repeatedly want to practice the same thing. Makes you feel at ease and allows u to be so relaxed you feel as though your with a friend. Would definitely recommended him to everyone I know! Thank you
Aiden is a great instructor - he made me feel calm and composed whenever I drove. He listens to students and he explains things well in order to tailor a students skill set and improve it. He always speaks in a kind manner and truly cares for his students. Would definitely recommend him to anyone. 100%
Richard has done a great job in not only helping me pass my driving test but also preparing me for independent driving. He has a very relaxed style of teaching which works well for driving as it allows you to stay calm and focused whilst also allowing you to learn all that is required to be a safe driver. If you're learning to drive I would recommend Excel Driver Training as you get an experienced instructor and get to drive a car with all the bells and whistles
absolutely amazing instructor! couldn’t fault Richard at all! from being such a nervous driver to passing first time, thanks to Richard helping giving me the confidence! couldn’t have done it without him!
Thank you Aiden with your help I passed my driving test first TimeHelping me by going through all the little bits helped me alot thank you again
Would definitely recommend ExceL Driver Training, great communication throughout and even during lockdown when no lessons could take place still always happy to answer questions. the app shows driving skills and progress made, also has lessons booked so you can keep track. as a parent I did like to have a quick catch up on progress after his lesson to which helped settle my own nerves on this next stage of parenting!! overall excellent service and will be booking again for my younger son.
Richard has been a great instructor, from accidently popping his tyre to passing with 0 minors on my first attempt. He is really patient, cares about your concerns and he will always reassure you when you need it. I highly recommend him! :)
I was always so nervous about starting driving and put it off for a long time as I didn’t believe I was ever going to be able to do it, but after beginning lessons with Richard all those worries washed away and my confidence in both myself and my driving abilities slowly but surely increased. I’ve had such a good time learning to drive with him, as he uses a student-focused teaching method which allows you as the learner to take real control of your progress. With self reflections and visual progress on the app you can track your success easily and you can see simply where your strengths and weaknesses lay. He’s a really lovely instructor who makes you feel at ease and is super easy to talk to, which as someone who gets anxious starting new things was super important to me. I’ve never felt worried or stressed out on a lesson as he keeps very calm and collected even in tricky situations. He’s also very patient and considerate so you never feel rushed or out of your depth. And here we are 30 hours later and I’ve passed first time! I seriously can’t recommend him enough and wish him the best in all that he does in the future :)
Thank you so much Richard for all your words of encouragement and for how you have taught Suzanne to drive. You have got an amazing pass rate and with how you are with your pupils I can understand why. Keep up the good work, I will definitely be recommending you in the future. Thanks again x
Extremely professional but also relaxed and down to earth with young people.
Very patient offering good advice to help rapidly improve your skills.
Worth every penny with bonuses such as a personalised app specific to your driving, as well as your lessons support Keep the Beat.
10/10 Top class instructor.
I had the most amazing time with Richard. Definitely the best driving instructor out there! He makes you feel safe and comfortable in the car and on the road and puts his 100% effort in getting to your goal. I had 16 hours in the space of two months and he got me to pass on the first attempt. The hard work and care he shows doesn’t go unnoticed and is much appreciated. I couldn’t have asked for someone better to teach me how to drive :)
Richard taught my son to drive and is an excellent instructor. He is a lovely guy, very patient and easy to get along with which put my son at ease who was quite nervous. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone who was looking to start or continue driving lessons.
Highly recommend Richard, brilliant instructor and really nice guy who
is incredibly supportive, producing safe, confident young drivers. Look
no further than Learn2Pass,
Amazing driving instructor, who helped me to pass first time, and was
always really patient with me. He always created a helpful stress free
environment. Would highly recommend!!!
My driving lessons with Richard were great. He taught me everything I
needed to know, while also doing a lesson on the motorway. I felt really
prepared when I went in for my test. He is such a nice guy who just
keeps you calm all the time whilst still correcting mistakes so you can
be the best driver. He always has something to talk about. I recommend
him to anyone who wants to drive!
A great driving instructor who I would highly recommend to anyone
learning to drive. Richard was always patient, understanding and helped
create a stress free environment. I very much enjoyed my lessons and am
very grateful for all his help
Amazing instructor, patient, easy to talk to, helpful, never ever shouts or complains! 10/10 and passed first time
Richard is a brilliant instructor. He is very calm and collected and is
very patient in the car. He has clever little tricks to help you learn
and remember. Without Richard, I wouldn’t have been able to grow my
confidence behind the wheel.
Every lesson with Richard feels very comfortable. It feels more like
you’re being guided than instructed and it helps you to learn faster.
Would definitely Recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive.
Really good communication on and off lessons, enjoyed every lesson and
Richard is a very friendly and easy to get along with instructor, 10/10
recommend to anyone wanting to learn.
Excellent driving instructor who quickly helped Hannah improve and
prepare for her test. After a disappointing experience with a previous
instructor, Richard was superb and we would highly recommend him to
anyone. Thanks again Rich!
Can’t thank Richard enough for all his hard work and patience whilst
teaching me to drive. He made me feel very comfortable behind the wheel
and was very calm when things didn’t always go to plan. Couldn’t
recommend him enough to anyone wanting to learn to drive
My daughter really enjoyed learning with Richard and he has helped her
become a really competent and confident driver. He has a good manner and
ultimately she passed with zero faults!
