My name is Riccardo but everyone calls me Ric.

I’m originally from Italy but I’ve lived most of my life in England. My background is in aviation. In the past 25 years I've flown for a few different airlines covering different roles including crew manager, service instructor and safety trainer.

I’ve always had a passion for safety and security, associated with the rewarding feeling that training provides. With the Pandemic, I realized that I wanted to keep my feet on the ground, and as I always loved driving, becoming a driving instructor was the obvious choice in order to transfer the skills I acquired in the air.

My driving experience in different parts of the world made me develop an awareness of other drivers actions associated with keeping things simple, I
hope to teach my clients not just how to pass their test but teach them a skill for the rest of their life. My aim is to tailor my lessons to the clients learning
style, making sure a nice personal experience is also achieved.

Away from work I’m a passionate skier. I also enjoying cycling, travelling and spending time with my young family.

He devised an excellent, focused, short programme of lessons targeting exactly what I needed to do. His instructions were always clear. He's also a really nice person and my lessons were always enjoyable. It has made a hige difference to my confidence - highly recommended."

Andy York, Crawley, West Sussex

"After trying lessons with another couple of schools and not getting anywhere fast I was well impressed from my first lesson with Ric. He doesn't waste time getting on with things, but pulled me up on things that I wasn't doing right. And he's a nice bloke. I passed first time!"

"I has Ric as my instructor, and I'm so pleased that I did. He was so patient with me, and explained everything clearly and in a way that helped me to become confident in my ability. He was always on time, flexible with fitting in lessons around my work, and most importantly got me through my test on the first go! Thanks so much, I'll be recommending Ric to anyone that wants to learn!"
