Testimonial from Silvana Alfarano

“I am so glad I had Richard as my driving instructor, I couldn’t have found anyone better! My lessons were completely personalised according to what I needed, his prices were very reasonable and he polished my existing driving techniques, preparing me for the test and for my next years of driving. Being an experienced driver, I was afraid to be patronised, but Richard was an absolute delight to spend time with. He is patient, focused, careful and his instructions are crystal-clear, there is never any room for doubt.

I have become a confident, safe driver in only a few lessons with Richard King. He is THAT good!”

A good, first-time pass!


Well done to Silvana Alfarano of Bar Hill for passing the Practical Driving Test at the Cowley Rd Test Centre in Cambridge. Silvana has driven for several years, both in her home country of Brazil, and here in the UK, and just needed a few tips to help her adapt to driving on English roads. Sadly for me – her cute little baby (Emily) didn’t come along with mum for lessons – but stayed at home with dad!

Congratulations to Sneha Bhat

Warning about new car insurance scam…. ‘Flash for Cash’

A BBC report tells us of yet  another scam which we all end up paying-for in our insurance premiums!

The scammers appear to flash their headlights to invite you out from a junction. They then ram your car so they can then blame you for the ‘accident’ and claim huge amounts of money from your insurer.

Hopefully you all ready know what the Highway Code says about flashing of headlights?

 The Highway Code says: “Flashing headlights. Only flash your headlights to let other road users know that you are there. Do not flash your headlights to convey any other message or intimidate other road users. Never assume that flashing headlights is a signal inviting you to proceed. Use your own judgement and proceed carefully.”

New driving test centre for Cambridge?

There are strong rumours that, in addition to the Cowley Rd and Chesterton Rd driving test centres, Cambridge learners might soon be able to take their  practical driving test from a third test centre at 25 St Neots Road, Hardwick
Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB23 7QH

According to CAADI (Cambridge Association of Approved Driving Instructors), the Hardwick site, which has up till now been used for Motor Cycle riders tests, will soon be used for learner tests, as well as Part 2 and 3 tests for PDI’s (Potential Driving Instructors)
