Absolutely blown away with Matt and his teaching skills

5
Driving lessons in Swanley BR8. I was absolutely blown away with Matt and his teaching skills. I passed my test first time with 0 faults – something I never thought possible. Matt brings a lovely mix of friendliness & professionalism. When I started learning to drive I started in a manual car and I felt really unconfident. I spoke to Matt to say I wasn’t sure if I didn’t enjoy driving or if it was because I couldn’t get along with the clutch. Matt took me out for a trial to see how I was in an automatic and we got along instantly and I felt confident learning to drive with him.

Matt has a true talent for teaching people how to drive, he breaks everything down into easily manageable chunks so he doesn’t overwhelm you and gets you to repeat it until you’re confident. He didn’t teach me to pass my test, he taught me to be a confident driver and I couldn’t have done it without him.

I have no doubt if I hadn’t learnt to drive with Matt I would have given up learning to drive.

Fantastic experience

5
My experience with Matt Driving school was great! From the initial contact all the way to the day I passed my test. I had all the support,training and encouragement ,motivation I required to achieve my driving goals. My Instructor was Matt. He's very professional, motivating, gives credit where its due and he's very patient with learners and understands that people learn differently. He is also flexible with his lesson times should the need arise and is always punctual for lessons. He communicates effectively and in good time. I would recommend Matt and Matt's Shurmer driving school to anyone looking for value for their money and for solid training in the fundamentals of driving. A big Thank you to Matt Shurmer driving school!
