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 lesson Packages really stood out for me, very affordable. Richard was professional, with a high standard of teaching. Learning to drive was a lot harder than i thought it would be. But with Richards patience i was able to pass first time.

Price and a good driving instructor were important to me when i was looking to learn to drive. I wanted a good teacher who could teach me to drive quickly. Learning to drive was harder than i expected it to be, but not too hard and i passed my driving test at the first attempt. Richard Teesdale's teaching methods were great and efficient. This helped me to learn well and fast. I would highly recommend Richard, good driving instructor, good prices and good car.

I came to Learn Driving UK as I'd heard so many positive things said by friends at school. They all passed first time, each had different Instructors too! I was still very nervous about the prospect of being out there on the road but was made to feel very at ease and I knew I was in safe hands. The teaching methods were spot on and I really appreciated the patience they showed me on more than one occasion. I got through my test first time too. I'm just sad to have to say goodbye to my instructor. They become a friend as you work through the process, which makes it feel more enjoyable. Thank you Learn Driving UK, you were brilliant! Yes, I would recommend Learn Driving UK
