Your Instructor

Tony Richardson

I have been riding bikes almost 30 years, qualifying as a DVSA Instructor in 1993 and going on to pass a Surrey County Council Advanced Motorcycle test.

Since then I've become a qualification collector including Enhanced Rider Scheme Instructor as well as an Examiner for the IAM Roadsmart, RoSPA and DIAmond.

Perhaps then it's no surprise that I was a Police motorcyclist, a coach for BikeSafe, as well as a reserve member of the revered Special Escort Group.

No matter how much experience we have, we can always learn more; and learning should be fun and engaging.

That’s what I strive to achieve when I teach or conduct a test.
