Richard Teesdale

Driving Instructor - Harrogate, Knaresborough & Ripon

Hi my name is Richard Teesdale, I've been a driving instructor now for four and half years. I’ve lived in Starbeck Harrogate all my life. Many pupils have passed their driving test with me at their first attempt.

I got the opportunity to join learn driving UK full time and I am excited about being part of such a great team.

I’m very professional, supportive, calm and you will always be made to feel comfortable on your lessons. I'm very kind and patient and we will progress at your level and pace, helping to build your confidence and experience on today’s busy roads.

In my spare time I go to car shows and I love motorbikes I passed my bike test in 2007. I also have two ponds in my back garden full of fish and they take a lot of looking after.

I look forward to teaching you to drive Thank you

The make of car that i would be learning to drive in was important to me. The price and attitude of the driving instructor was also important. I found learning to drive with Richard Teesdale a lot better than with my previous driving instructor. Richards teaching methods were very good, he was always relaxed. I would highly recommend Richard and Learn Driving UK as good driving instructor and good prices.

I chose Learn Driving UK as their prices were good. The availability of the driving instructor was very important to me. I was nervous at the start but as time went by i enjoyed my driving lessons. Richard Teesdale was very good and i passed first time with only 3 minors. I highly recommend him.
