My name is Richard Smith; I am your LDC Instructor covering Cumbernauld & Central Scotland.
I passed my Driving Test when I was 17 and since then I have driven many different types of vehicles: Bikes, Cars, Vans, Buses, HGV Trucks and even a Police Car. I have driven many hundreds
of thousands of miles, both in the UK and also in Europe.
I was previously employed as a Transport Manager with a large, international Healthcare company. I also used to teach drivers with a basic Car licence to upgrade to a HGV/LGV licence. Now I am teaching new drivers to PASS the Driving Test and obtain their first Driving Licence. Even after all these years, it is still a tremendous thrill to see a new driver PASS their Driving Test.
I am a fully qualified ADI, Aproved Driving Instructor. I am also a fully qualified ORDIT Trainer so I can help with all aspect of Driving Instructor Training, Parts 1, 2 & 3 and Standards Check training.
