" Thank you so much for your help. Passing my test has made the world of difference to me and that wouldn’t of been possible without your help. I would also like to say thank you for all the effort and being so flexible to make the lessons possible.

- Laura Bisset June 2022

Regards, Mehdi

- Mehdi Abbas Feb 2022

"Lessons with Richard was a pleasure! I had 2 previous instructors and Richard taught me more in 1 month than I learnt with them over 2 years. Richard was very calm and never made me feel under distress. He gave clear instructions and made me feel confident driving, I couldn’t recommend him more. 10/10
Thank you Richard 😁

- Joe Ulysses July 2021

"Richard is the kindest and easiest driving instructor to get along with! Was always calm and patient in the car. Was helpful with theory practice and I never felt pushed or rushed to get the practical test done which paid off immensely! 100% recommend for car newbies!
Thank you very much Richard!

- Amy Little Feb 2020

- Cora Stratford Nov 2019

"Richard is honestly the best driving instructor anyone could ask for! He made every lesson enjoyable and ensured I understood everything that was being taught. Not only is he an amazing instructor, he’s very professional, calm and reassuring. I would 100% recommend him to anyone considering taking driving lessons. Thanks again Richard – couldn’t have done it without you.

- Alisha Rahman Oct 2019

"It was a genuine pleasure learning to drive with Richard, which considering how anxious I was to get behind the wheel, is a testament to his patience and skill as a teacher. I would recommend Richard to anyone in need of a quality driving instructor.

- Ellen Rivers Oct 2019

"Just to say thank you for helping Charlie pass his test today, you improved his driving massively in such a short time, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you. Many thanks again.

- Spencer M Apr 2019

"Thank you Richard, for making me pass my driving test (with almost a clean sheet) and more importantly becoming a safe driver. It’s been a tremendous progress for me considering where I had started from. Thanks again for all your efforts, patient instructions and friendly criticism to improve my driving abilities.

- Vidushi Mishra Feb 2018

"Just want to thank Richard so much for me helping with my lessons! He was the perfect instructor, very helpful, made you feel comfortable, and gave good friendly criticism. I had a previous instructor who compared to Richard was simply awful. Thank you so much Richard 🙂

- Laura Mannin Dec 2017

"Richard was 100% the best driving instructor, mentor and friend, I’m so thankful for his time and effort and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to switch to wayfarer.I had a not so successful experience with my previous instructor and Richard was brilliant at assessing my current level and guiding me to the point of passing! He made me enjoy driving again and every lesson was completely worthwhile, engaging and fun. I’ve learned invaluable skills and couldn’t be the driver I am today without the tuition and hard work put in by Richard.An absolute no-brainer if you’re considering learning with wayfarer! I genuinely cannot express enough how grateful I am for his absolutely top class lessons!! You’re one in a million Rich!! Thank you.

- Charlita Barrett Nov 2016

"Having tried to get my licence almost 20 years ago and given up in a huff, it was difficult for me coming back to it. Richard has been tremendously helpful and I genuinely couldn’t have got through it without him. His approach to teaching is first rate, and he takes the time to patiently explain the aspects of driving that (for me anyway) are really quite unintuitive. Massively recommend Wayfarer. There are loads of instructors in Basingstoke, but I’m very glad I went with Richard.

- Ben Bevan Nov 2016

"Amazing instructor! I can’t thank Richard enough for all my lessons, he has the paitence of a saint, good humour, very reliable and easy to get along with! I will be and am recommending him to everyone! Thanks again 🙂

- Megan Coyle Oct 2016

"It has been an absolute pleasure learning to drive with you Richard, you have gone above and beyond to help me prepare for today, you haven’t just taught me how to drive but you have taught to trust in my own judgment, self belief and self confidence and I couldn’t thank you enough. You are such a fantastic driving instructor and I could never have done it without you. I wouldn’t recommend anyone but Richard Fosh. You are fantastic in what you do, once again thank you.

- Chinesha Daley Sept 2016

"Thank you Richard for truly being the most amazing driving instructor; someone who is patient, understanding and so constructive. I feel really lucky to have had you as my instructor and will continue to recommend you to everyone I can. Not only one of the kindest people but also one of the best teachers! I couldn’t have done my test without you! Thank you so so much for everything and if anyone is looking for an instructor, you will never regret choosing to take your lessons with Richard!:)

- Abby McMillan July 2016

"Great instructor with a lot of humour, easy to get along with and makes learning a lot easier

- Yuden Gurung June 2016

"Hello Richard, Thank you so much for all your support and help you spent teaching me to drive. Your patience and encouragement prepared me with confidence to make this driving test wonderful experience. Lessons were informative with expert guidance, Scheduling lessons was very simple and flexible. I can say without a doubt that I wouldn’t have made this driving test possible, without your expertise and guidance. “Many Thanks again!” “For Exceptional Quality Driving Lessons Always the Best Mr. Richard” Kind regards, thank you,

- Suma Vemula Apr 2016

- Rakesh Nov 2015

- Towela Ndhlovu Nov 2015

"Thanks Richard for all hard work to teach me drive. I honestly recommend him for anyone who want to learn driving car. Most important and what I like about Richard is his honest advice, simplicity, very punctual (always 5 mins early and never late) and patient. It is pleasure to know person like him who has this dedication for training.

- Manoj Shakya – Sept 2015

"Richard is a fantastic driving instructor, I recommend him highly to anyone who is beginning to drive as he will teach you in a calm manner but also give you that push you need to be a confident driver. Without him I wouldn’t have passed and it’s one of the best things to ever happen to me. Absolutely wicked instructor and no one will regret opting for him 🙂

- Yasmin Comez – Apr 2015

"Richard is an absolute amazing driving instructor, he is very patient and understanding and he makes you feel relaxed when you’re learning with him, which is a lovely way to drive.

And I passed 1st time…… well done you for putting up with me. Will 100% be sending my daughter to you next year for lessons. Take care and thanks SO much.

- Orla Parmar – July 2013

"I felt so gutted and nervous about my test. Richard is such a dedicated instructor and an excellent teacher… can’t thank him enough. I have learnt from him so much about safe driving and above all he helped me pass my test and I felt absolutely over the moon to have passed it now. Keep up the good work Richard see you soon for motorway lesson.

- Aqsa Siddiq – May 2013

"I was put onto Richard by my partner and what a result that was, I’d had plenty of driving experience before but had to re-sit my test. i needed the rusty bits knocked off and polishing up. Richard was top draw, straight talking and good to me especially after i mucked him about a bit changing lessons [sorry again]. The icing on the cake for me was the little chat right before the test, you really put me at ease mate. Legend. I’d recommend Richard to anyone and to pass my partner and her sister that in itself is a miracle. Cheers Mate!

- Sean Stevens – Apr 2013

- Natalie Woodward – Sept 2012

"Richard is an exceptional driving instructor. He gave me the courage and belief in myself to achieve when I thought I couldn’t myself. It was a true privilege being taught by such a skilled instructor. Thank you so much for helping me pass, and believing in me. I would definitely recommend you to others. Thanks again for all the support!

- Mark Scott – May 2012

"Thank you so much Richard. You are an absolute star. You are definitely the best driving instructor, having tried many miserable bu**ers out there, that just don’t have the patience or humorous talents which you possess.” I have really enjoyed your company and professional approach to teaching me. I felt relaxed and confident in your lessons which enabled me to listen and learn from you, consequently passing my test first time. Yipee!!” I will definitely be recommending you to all i meet that are wanting lessons!! Many thanks again

- Emma Paris – Mar 2012

"I have enjoyed every lesson I have had with Richard. From the very start he has been friendly and professional and also a really good laugh when we had the chance. Thanks for all the help and support you have shown me throughout and I shall look back with fond memories. Looking forward to seeing you soon

- Luke Ruffell – Feb 2012

"Thanks a zillion times Richard, I passed for the first time – wow! You were recommended by a friend of mine and she was right in doing so, I would recommend you to anyone! Having had no cars in the family and coming from a foreign country, it was difficult for me to start with the driving and cope up with those scary roundabouts & nasty turns, road markings, rules and regulations! It was YOU who made it a fun to learn driving and led me pass for the very first time against all odds of a chilly, dark, and busy Friday afternoon! And, thank you for being so flexible with pick-up/drop-off locations and putting extra minutes to give me those “lectures” 🙂 which fine-tuned my driving to get this pass certificate today! Thanks again Richard!!

- Atul Tiwari – Dec 2011

"Thank you so much Richard – that’s all 3 of our children (and me!) that you’ve taught to drive! Best wishes from Marie Luff (Katie’s Mum)

- Marie – Oct 2011

"I am so glad I decided to have lessons with Richard, as from the very first lesson he made me feel comfortable and relaxed about driving, which helped to calm my nerves! He was always on time and easy to contact, and I always felt I could ask questions, even when I thought they were stupid – and only occasionally would he laugh! I enjoyed being taught by Richard, and feel confident that having been taught by him I will be a competent and safe driver. Thank you very much Richard for being so easy going and patient, and for keeping me entertained with your jokes and stories!

- Emily Bridle – May 2011

"Learning to drive with Richard was an absolute pleasure, he is so patient, friendly and a great teacher.

I couldn’t have done it without Richard and would recommend him to anyone who wants a good and patient instructor. Thanks again Richard.

- Brad Fletcher – March 2011

"Learning to drive with Richard was such a great experience! He taught me everything I needed to know, and more. We got along so well, and it’s going to be weird not seeing him every week now… I think everybody should be given the opportunity to learn to drive with such a good instructor! I also think he should make a Facebook account, so we can all stay in contact with him! Once again, thank you Richard!

- Billy Ambler – Feb 2011

"Richard is known in our house as a legend! First Robert, then Kim and finally Hazel. Robert still holds the record with 4 minors and still gloats about it!! Richard is a patient, kind and friendly instructor who we would highly recommend. Thank you so much for everything.

- Steve Cawley – Oct 2009

"I used to drive in India for more than 8 years n obviously I wanted to drive in UK as well. So I started my driving lessons with Richard. He is very friendly and a very nice human being. He teaches very well. If ur driving lesson is for one hour and the time is over, and if u have any queries, he alway solves ur query.” “Everyday he comes with the same enthusiasm…Hats off!” “I got the licence say 2 months back. Now my husband and my friend both are taking classes with him. And they are doing very well.” “You will always feel confident while taking lessons with Richard! “ “THANKS A LOT!!”
