Can't recommend Rio highly enough. My instructor Peter Chopra has been excellent, helped eased my nerves and anxiety at the start and provided fantastic explanations throughout my lessons. Great hints and tips that really made me a confident driver. Thanks for all the support & encouragement

Rio driving school has been great in helping me to build my confidence on the roads. Not only did it prepare me to pass a test, but provided me with essential life skills. My instructor has been a great, friendly but also professional face to learn with, constantly testing me on the move. I would definitely recommend!

I would give this a 5 star!
I had Lee as my driving instructor and he’s very friendly, makes you feel calm if you have any nerves. He has helped me come a long way and has helped me to get the pass that I wanted.

Can not recommend Lee Morton enough. I started lessons with him after several issues with a previous instructor, and he could not have been more understanding and patient with me. Immediately I felt at ease in the car with Lee, and I always felt he wanted nothing but the best for me in my driving. I passed my test today thanks to Lee, and the only sad part was having to now say goodbye to him. Thank you for everything, I cannot thank you enough.

100% recommend to others. I have booked lessons with Peter Chopra . Fantastic driving instructor, brilliantly patient and very friendly. Never cancelled lessons, always on time if not early. Peter always informs me about my next lessons few days before so I can easily plan my week ahead. Excellent in explaining things. Very professional and helpful. He is always calm and makes me feel confident. Peter is a top driving instructor. Highly recommended.

Passed my test in March last year all thanks to Jonathan. I had my fair share of driving instructors but my anxiety with driving was too much. Thanks to Jonathan and Rio, he pushed me and knew I could do well. He was a great instructor and our lessons were always fun and enjoyable. Thank you Jonathan and Rio😁

Gary is a good instructor, patient and knows what he's doing. If you mess up he won't make a big deal out of it and keeps composed. He's a good instructor and taught me how to drive more confidently.

I could not recommend Gary enough. Gary is easy to get along with and extremely supportive. He helped me overcome my nervousness and made me feel at ease and confident while also pushing me to be the best and safest driver I could be. Couldn't have passed first time without his patience and guidance.

“Having tried with a previous instructor prior to Gary, it was a refreshing experience having someone down to earth who was teaching you and chucked you straight in to actually driving. My first lesson I had done more with Gary than I had in 3 hours with my previous instructor.
Gary was very helpful throughout the lessons and answered any questions I had, no matter how silly they may have seemed to be. Also, considering the situation with COVID and the effect this has had on waiting times for booking the practical driving test, Gary continued to support and encourage me to continue despite failing on my first attempt, and didn’t use the waiting period as an excuse to get more unnecessary lessons out of me. He acknowledges when you are ready and I felt very comfortable trusting his opinion on this.
Overall, a very easy to get along with, down to earth person who makes the whole process of learning how to drive one that does not feel like an ordeal and instead an experience. Very useful especially for people like me who get very nervous and anxious in test situations.”

I cannot recommend Paul at Rio Driving school highly enough. He is calm, reassuring and professional. He not only tailored and focused the lessons to my personal needs but worked really well with me to help build my confidence in a safe and professional way.

I hold a driving license but after having had an accident 10years ago I hadn't driven and was incredibly anxious to be behind the wheel again after so long. He communicates clearly, he is calm and reassuring and ultimately improved my confidence and competence far more than I could have hoped in a short amount of time. I give Paul 10/10 and thoroughly recommend him and Rio driving school to anybody who wants to feel safe and confident behind the wheel. Thank you so much Paul - truly grateful for all your help!

I have been fortunate enough to have lessons with Paul from Rio Driving school. He has been outstanding. I can’t recommend him highly enough. Calm. Professional. Reassuring. Skilled. Patient. Truly brilliant experience. Thank you!
Paul helped me overcome my fear and anxiety which stemmed from an accident over 10years ago. I was terrified to get in the car. But with his help and tuition I am now not only more competent than I have ever been. But somehow I am confident and actually enjoy driving. I highly recommend Paul and Rio to anyone who wants to learn, improve or increase their confidence. Thank you Paul!
