About Richard

Richard is the latest addition to the team at YES! Driving School, where he provides a service as a Driving Instructor in Weymouth and the surrounding areas.  Richard previously worked at Heathrow Airport before moving into driving, firstly qualifying as a bus driver and then as a driving instructor. Whilst living in London, unforeseen circumstances caused Richard to press pause on his driving instruction career.  He is now ready to enjoy his life once more as a driving instructor in Weymouth. Richard and his family moved to Dorset in 2017, settling in Portland.

Previous experience counts

Richard likes to use his previous experience, coupled with up-to-date coaching skills to get the best from his pupils.  He teaches in a client-centred manner. With this approach, his pupils are free to let him know of their driving concerns and, with a little guidance where necessary, they can find ways to overcome them. Richard believes that working as a team is the easiest way to get the best results but allowing a pupil to think for themselves will always produce a safer driver in the long term.

Richard has a real love of seeing people improve their skills through exploring different techniques and methods.

When not working, Richard loves spending time with his family and dogs but also enjoys going to the cinema and watching most sports, especially football . He also ‘tries’ to play darts locally. Richard enjoys a laugh and tries to make lessons as relaxed and fun as possible.

Trainee Licence

Richard is currently on a Trainee Licence having completed all 3 parts of the qualifying training.  His Part 1 and 2 Tests are complete and he has completed over 40 hours of instructional training.  Some of his lessons will be regularly monitored by YES! Director of Training, Pete.

New Enquiries

The demand for driving lessons is currently far exceeding the availability of our team of instructors.

In an attempt to manage your expectations, can we please advise that, unless you are available for daytime lesson (between 8am and 3.30pm), you WILL NOT BE ADDED to our waiting list.  Our general waiting list currently has over 200 names on it.

For those with daytime availability, please do click the Enquire/Book Now button and COMPLETE the form which follows; you are under no obligation by doing that.  The more availability you have, or if you can be flexible to take short notice lessons, the better chance you have of gaining lessons.

In the meantime, it is important for you to continue to search elsewhere for driving lessons with other schools.

Good Luck in your quest for lessons and we hope the situation will improve soon as our team grows.  If you, or someone you know is interested in becoming a Driving Instructor or joining our team then please click here
