My name is Richard Smith; I am your LDC Instructor covering Cumbernauld & Central Scotland.

About me:-

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.

I chose to work with LDC because everybody is different and the LD System allows for flexibility in lessons so that you learn to Drive safely at a rate that suits you. My goal is to make every lesson as enjoyable and as productive as possible; teaching you to drive to a high standard and PASS your driving test. The LD System helps me to do this more effectively. Lessons are always conducted in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner as I firmly believe in making pupils feel at ease during each lesson.
"Richard was friendly and helpful; put me at ease throughout the course." Phil, Cumbernauld
