All pupils are automatically put onto our online 3D course, where you can watch videos of all driving topics.
These can be used before you begin a topic so that you come to the lesson with knowledge, or as a follow up to cement your knowledge and understanding.
Our pupils have access to their own dedicated student app to track progress, lessons and payments.
This is hosted through the MyDriveTime booking system, with text message reminders of lessons booked.

Driving tuition might seem like a straightforward process that can be formulated and systematically applied to each student. In actuality every individual pupil learns at different rates and with different teaching methods.
When you are picking a driving school, steer clear of ‘one size fits all’ attitudes, as a good instructor should be able to adapt to all learning styles.
Matt Shurmer Driving School takes this a step further, by offering completely client-centred lessons. Not only are you not given a set lesson structure to work through but you have the freedom to express whether you feel like a certain area could use more work.
For instance at Matt Shurmer Driving School you will never be put under pressure to complete a task you don’t feel ready to do.
Our instructors pride themselves on being flexible and dynamic to deliver the best lessons for each respective pupil.
There are lots of factors to consider when you are making that all-important decision of which driving school to pick. Some people wrongly assume that the choice isn’t so important, as much as the work you are willing to put into learning. This is not the case. Your driving instructor can accelerate your learning, or they can actually impede it and set you back.
When it comes to investing your own hard-earned money, or your parents’ money into driving lessons you want to make sure you are going to get great value for money! The instructor who is closest to your house may be tempting but you may be surprised to hear that proximity really doesn’t matter. In fact most driving instructors will pick you up and drop you back off at your house for your lesson provided they cover your area at no extra charge.
Distance shouldn’t be a huge factor for this reason but reviews and recommendations should demand your attention. Look at what previous pupils have to say – what were their favourite things about the instructor? If there are a large number of past students singing praises for the instructor then you’re off to a good start.
We have 22 different fully-qualified driving instructors that are CRB/ DBS checked and registered for your complete peace of mind.
We have both male and female driving instructors (some women feel more comfortable being taught by another woman, and we respect that), and each of them can be seen on the ‘Meet The Team’ page on our website. You can learn more about them from a short biography, and read what their students had to say. If you can’t find any feedback from past pupils when you are looking at instructors from other schools, proceed with caution!
Matt Shurmer Driving School has been established since 2007 and is an experienced and trustworthy driving school with a well-earned reputation in the local area.
Most importantly student success is at the forefront of what we do and we hope that whichever driving school you opt for that your journey in getting your licence pays off!
Both Automatic and Manual lessons are offered in most areas.
For your safety and reassurance, all of our instructors are DBS (CRB) checked and FULLY qualified.
You can choose between male and female driving instructors in most areas.
