Richard is very patient and just what you need to calm your nerves. Whoever he teaches Richard will always adapt lessons to fit your personal needs. He uses real life examples to make driving relatable, even if you’ve never driven before. As long as you do as Richard would you’ll become a safe driver for life. I would highly recommend Edwards School of Motoring to anyone who is undecided as to which instructor to pick. – AndreaP-22

Perfect for uneasy drivers. I had real difficulty learning but Rich was great. Very patient and calm. He helped through my nerves and dyslexia issues. He even made sure I passed before my wedding. Fantastic instructor. – TomG-37

My experience with Richard Edwards. Many instructors were unable to train me to test standards due to my dyslexia, however, with his experience and knowledge of my condition meant that within the course of a few months I was able to pass my test, and I believe it would have been extremely difficult for me to achieve what I did with most other driving instructors in Swansea – AaronL-12

Richard is a very talented driving instructor who knows how to teach even the most difficult student. I was a highly strung nervous student and Richard taught me how to drive in a controlled and calm manner. He is extremely patient and tailors each lesson to the individual students needs at the time. I ended up passing my test with flying colours first time. – Andy Lawrence

Richard is great at what he does, he has the patients of a saint and he will always ensure that you can drive to the best of your ability. Without his help, I wouldnt have passed, Thank you Richard! – Liz Williams

I can thoroughly recommend Richard as a driving instructor. He is patient, calm and extremely thorough. His emphasis on safe driving has made me confident in my ability now that I have passed. I also found the theory tuition extremely helpful. All in all, learning to drive with Richard was an enjoyable experience and now that I have passed, I feel well prepared for the challenged ahead. – Jamie Gaines, Llanelli

I really enjoyed my lessons with Richard, throughout my course he was very patient and understanding. I’d driven before with another instructor but we’d not got on well, so I felt I needed a change, I think it took me about 4 months to finally get the courage back to ring another instructor, then I found Edwards school of motoring – from the start he was friendly and helpful, always on time and I always had his full attention. Also, I never felt uncomfortable in the car which was an important point for me due to past experiences, I loved his clear explanations and I loved that he went out of his way to make sure I did everything to the best of my ability.

One major point for me was that he was fully flexible with times, he always worked around my shifts in work with no bother at all. He went to great lengths to ensure Iwas happy with all aspects of driving. His fun-nature and patience was greatly appreciated. I would like to thank Richard for everything he did for me, I would definitely recommend him to anyone and honestly he should be charging more than what he does because he’s amazing 🙂 Thank you Richard!!! – Kath Davies

My dad recommended Edward school of motoring to me when I mentioned I wanted to start my driving lesson and I must say that I had an amazing time driving, the driving instructor is very friendly, professional, he explains both the theory and practical in a very profound way. he is very helpful too. I passed my driving test first time…… I reccommend this school to any one wishing or thinking of taking their lesson. Many thanks once again. I honestly feel that I could not have passed without your guidance. Although I had already learned how to drive several years ago, I did lack some of the key elements of safer driving that would have seriously impaired my ability to pass the test. You passed these skills on to me and as such I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending you to anyone who wants to learn to drive.

I would especially like to commend you on your ability to spot any areas of driving that might need extra assitance, and it is this skill which helped me most. Reinforcing my mirror checks is something I might have let slip without your help. I think this is something that other driving instructors might lack, if they stick to a rigid lesson plan any areas that might need extra work could be left on the wayside. That is where your tutition excels; flexibile, pressure free learning. Any driver would be lucky to have you instruct them. All the best for the future, – Ben Ewington

This is a testimonial to the high standards I am receiving from Richard Edwards from Edwards School of Motoring. I am currently learning to drive with the assistance of Richard. He is highly professional, friendly, prompt and understanding. Richard teaches in a relaxed manner at a speed you feel comfortable with, and although there is a lesson objective, its more of a direction rather than a must achieve this in this lesson. Richard allows you to make mistakes and instead of shouting or becoming agitated, he explains how the mistake happened, why it happened and how to put it right. Even when you make the same mistake again, he calmly explains again using slightly different wording and real life comparisons.

His car is always clean, both externally and internally and is clutter free. Richard’s website is well laid out and very informative. I found full contact details and the pricing information extremely helpful. Richard treats you as an individual, rather than another person learning to drive. Learning to drive with him feels like your the only one who is important. The lessons go at the speed I feel comfortable with rather than what must be achieved in a lesson. I find the hand outs at the end of the lesson useful as it backs up what you learn on the lesson. The lessons are well thought out, from what your going to be doing, to where you are going to be doing it. The lessons flow from one skill one into the next, picking up on what you know and enhancing it to include more maneuvers.

If your feeling worried, nervous or anxious about learning to drive then I would definitely recommend Richard. I found Richards flexibility to fit the lessons around my own free time a great help. I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of learning to drive to learn with Richard. – James, (25) Swansea

This was the second time that I’ve had driving lessons. After the first, friends and family, even the instructor, said I would never learn. It took me more than ten years to pluck up the courage to try again. Understandably, I was extremely nervous. Richard has the patience of Job. I passed with flying colours. Today, I regularly drive in London without any qualms. That says it all. – Karon Jenkins, Tumble

Having decided later in life to learn to drive and after having tried and failed my tests with other driving schools, I started driving with Edwards School of Motoring – both my step – daughters had been taught by Richard and had passed their tests first time. Every lesson was structured to my needs, each manoeuvre was taught clearly and with patience. At the end of each lesson, I felt I had learnt something that would make me a better driver. Now almost a year after having passed my test, the techniques taught to me by Richard are being put into use every time I get behind the wheel of my car. I would highly recomend Richard and the Edwards School of Motoring to anyone wishing to learn to drive – whether you have never had a lesson before or have been learning elsewhere. The tuition is of the highest standard and will give you the techniques for a lifetime of safe driving. Thank you Richard and the Edwards School of Motoring – I could not have done it without you. – Steve
