Chris was my driving instructor for just over two years. He was amazingly supportive, great to banter with and had the patience of a saint at times! I really enjoyed learning to drive with him and he has made me a confident and competent driver. I would recommend this driving school to others.

If you are looking for the best driving School, you don't need to look any longer, because this is the best driving school. My experience with Paul was quite the journey. He did taught me with the greatest patience ever, always reassuring me when I made mistakes and also making sure I was ok. He listened to my feedback and advised me on where I needed to improve, whether it was reverse parking or always checking the mirrors before signalling, Paul was there to guide me throughout the whole process. There aren't enough words to thank him and the school for all the knowledge I have learnt. You will gain the skills of a lifetime. I am so glad I chose this school to teach me how to drive!

5* Great instructor, helped me pass fast. I only started driving in February and managed to pass by July. Made to feel comfortable when learning to drive and great flexibility for lesson times/dates. Explains everything in easy ways which help you understand, I was a very nervous driver but Gary helped me gain confidence and didn't pressure me in any way. Would 100% recommend to anyone learning to drive!

I cannot recommend Lee at Rio enough. I never thought I would be able to pass but Lee put me at ease whilst teaching me + I wouldn't have done it without him.

I can't thank Paul Fisher enough for his endless help and support, he put me at ease from the very beginning and never stopped believing in me. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning to drive & will 100% be recommending Rio Driving School.

Very good teaching skills. Tells you what you need to do and how to do it in a simple way that is easy to understand with no nonsense like many other instructors. Doesn't make you have unnecessary lessons either. I failed on a small thing and Gary told me I didn't need any more lessons just an hour to practice before the test. My wife's instructor made her book more lessons every week. Highly recommend, five stars.

I passed my test first time!!!! The pass is all thanks to my instructor Gary and his endless patience.....he is incredibly calm and supportive and never ever gets annoyed at mistakes just simply tells you it's ok and talks you through it. I had an awful experience and wasted a lot of money on a previous instructor dreaded lessons and cried lots I changed to Gary after not having a lesson for 12 weeks and not having much experience and in less than 8 weeks of learning I passed. I used to dread lessons and be incredibly nervous to the point of being ill but I've loved every one of them. Gary's encouragement and belief that you CAN do it is infectious you start to believe you can. Everything is explained thoroughly and you can ask him to explain again its never a problem. I cannot recommend this wonderful man enough if you're nervous or think you'll never pass then book Gary because he will get you through. THANK YU GARY!! you'll forever be a legend to me xxx

My driving instructor was Gary. He was a fantastic instructor, he made me feel at ease straight away and explained everything perfectly which helped me pass my test after just a few lessons with only a few minors. Highly recommend!

My son had his first driving lesson this afternoon with a gentleman named Paul. The overall outcome for this lesson was very very good. My son does suffer with confidence issues and also can be quite anxious it's took a while to get him to consider having lessons but this gentleman made him feel so at ease today. On return I had a quick chat with Paul who then said my son was very confident and by the looks of things will be a brilliant driver, just goes to show a little bit of understanding about the way people feel about challenging these things goes a long way and now my son feels super confident in going on his next lesson. I can't thank this guy enough. Would truly recommend. Thank you.

I passed my test with another driving instructor around 3.5 years ago and hadn't driven since, so I booked some refresher lessons with Rio. Lee was my instructor and was super friendly, making me feel at ease straight away. He allowed me to drive right from the beginning and helped me to build my confidence greatly. I only needed 3 lessons, which shows how brilliant the instruction was, and gave me plenty of positive feedback to make me feel more confident in myself and my ability. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lee and Rio to anyone and everyone I know! Thanks so much.

I had been trying to learn to drive on and off for years. I'd always struggled with confidence and anxiety when it came to driving and had already used other driving instructors who didn't really help me with this. I'm so glad I found Gary, he is a fantastic instructor who is really laid back and help me overcome my fears around driving and within a few lessons helped me pass first time. I never thought I would pass my test, but now I have confidence in myself. Gary is the best driving instructor and a really approachable person and I highly recommend him.

We had Gary Bennet for our son, after being destroyed with self confidence by another instructor Gary gave him the belief that he could achieve his goal of passing his test. Gary was amazing, we had a 9 hour block booking with him and he got him through his test and he passed first time. We can't thank Gary enough for what he did and would highly recommend this instructor for new drivers. Thank you so much Gary.

Gary was a great driving instructor for me as he ensured I learnt everything I needed to know in a easy to learn manner. He remained relaxed and reassuring throughout all lessons and made sure I did not become stressed at any point while driving. I would highly recommend Gary as a driving instructor as he is friendly, always available for lessons and a great teacher.
