Can not recommend Richard enough!!! He´s kind caring and considerate. Starting to drive later in life is extremely nerve racking and being someone who overanalyses everything makes it so much worse. Richards laid back, funny whilst be firm and fair attitude made the whole process so much easier. He is flexible where possible to fit in with crazy life styles. He had tonnes more faith in me than I had in myself. Passed both theory and practical on the first go. Top notch instructor. Cheers Richard xxx

I would like to say a huge thank you to Richard my instructor for teaching me As a new UK residence everything is new to me and I never imagined being able to drive in my life before I met Richard. I really enjoyed learning to drive with him. He handled everything professionally and explained very clearly. According to my progress he tailored the lessons and prepared me to drive confidently and safely. On top of all he is a very nice gentleman. His instructions are echoing in my mind forever. I highly recommend him for automatic driving tuition. Thank you!”

Lisa xx


I would like to give Richard a massive thanks for been patient with me and I couldn´t have passed without him. He´s lessons are fun, it really shows how much experience he has at this job, he demonstrated vast knowledge of the roads of the towns nearby and he´s teaching methods are simple and easy to understand; everything about this diving school is taught to achieve perfection on the roads, thus really helped me to progress to become a better driver. Possibly the best instructor in East Anglia.

Bury Automatic driving school are an excellent company to learn to drive with, i would recommend them to any age or level . I didn´t have to waste money on lessons I didn´t need while I waited for my test, The lessons were affordable, every lesson was worth while i always felt as if i was achieving more, especially with the great encouragement i received, everything was explained properly. I was provided with books and disks i needed to learn my theory. I couldn´t of asked for an easier time learning to drive, And i passed first time. thankyou


Going With Bury St Edmunds Automatic Driving School Was A Very Good Choice.
I Have Heard Of Alot Of Driving Schools Which Have Bad Reputations
But Richard Is Excellent.
I Have Learnt To Drive Quicker Than I Expected Due To Richards Method Which Makes It Easier To Learn.
I Am Very Pleased With My Choice Of What Driving School To Go With.
Thank You Richard
