My son had his first lesson with Paul yesterday. Paul is amazing, so calm, friendly and patient. My son was quite nervous but came home absolutely buzzing after spending 2 hours with Paul. Amazing communication... I’ve been fully informed of how my son got on with his first lesson and he can’t wait for his next lesson. The whole process has been safe during these very difficult times, the car was extremely clean and Paul was immensely professional. We know it’s early days, but are confident Paul is going to not only teach my son to drive, but also boost his confidence and encourage belief in himself. I couldn’t recommend Paul highly enough, in fact I have already told lots of friends about him. Thank you

Passed my driving test around 5 years ago but had not driven since. I booked a few refresher lessons with Pete Chopra and he is a brilliant. He has helped build my confidence on the road, and was very thorough in explaining certain issues I struggled with (parking!) and I cannot thank him enough for finally being the one to get me on the road! Thank you so much.

Definitely would recommend Neil from rio driving tuition. Very friendly an great to learn to drive with.
Thank you again Neil!!


Excellent lessons, fairly priced and at flexible times. Can't fault it.


Passed my driving test first time all thanks to Chris, Paul and Paul! Such a great driving school, the instructors are really helpful and understanding and kept me feeling relaxed and calm when on lessons. Would recommend this driving school to anyone, best school around!


Had my first lesson with Paul today, couldn’t recommend enough. Made me feel relaxed while driving and really helped boost my confidence.


My experience of Rio Driving School is excellent. The teaching was easy to follow, and my instructor, Paul, always put me at ease as I was a very nervous driver to begin with. I learn't at a pace I was comfortable with. Paul was always on time for my driving lessons. The lessons were always structured well - I always felt like I was learning something new! Rio is Award Winning - try them!!


Paul Fisher is a very calm and patient driving instructor. He made me feel calm in what I expected to be a very tense learning environment. I was very happy with how professional he was and I learned a lot from him.


Very nervous after previous experiences, swapped to Rio, was pushed all the way, faced things that I wouldn't have thought driving would have to it, hit hurdles but Sarah never gave up on me all the way and pushed me to do things I didn't want to do that has made me as confident as I am! Couldn't thank her enough and for even being there when I cried when I passed!
