Automatic Driving Lessons

Who will you trust? Automatic Customer Reviews Nick Kelly


“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of the good reviews I saw on the Facebook page and the website. People told great stories of how your company helped them pass and get on the road so I decided to get back to getting my licence and chose your driving school to do it.

I came to the driving school having already attempted to take a test and failing with a previous driving school. However the approach to learning with you was fantastic and I felt like it was a very supportive and efficient environment to help me pass this time around. It really gave me the confidence back in my ability to drive and helped me in passing my test.

Matt was excellent in how he taught me. He was always supportive and gave me very good tips, advice, feedback to improve and support in how to drive, and more importantly, how to drive as safely as possible. He was also a very pleasant and friendly instructor which really helped my confidence in driving.

I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to friends. The teaching I experienced with the company is fantastic and I get the sense they really care in helping drivers succeed.

I don’t think there is anything that could have been improved upon. I received the highest level of instructing in my opinion and I hope everyone after me feels the same!”

Why choose us to teach you? Automatic Customer Reviews Neha Sehgal- Grover


"I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School because they came highly recommended by friends. Learning to drive was as I expected. I was looking for a good instructor which I got. 

Matt's teaching methods were professional and friendly - he is amazing at his job. I have already recommended you to my friends. Nothing could have been done better - everything went well."

Automatic Driving School | Top Rated Customer Reviews

  • We have both male and female instructors offering the best rated, trusted and recommended tuition and driving lessons
  • We offer both manual and automatic instructors providing affordable packages and bundles for beginners and refresher sessions
  • Many students search for an instructor on a 'near me' basis but we pick up and drop off in the local area so we don’t have to be the nearest
  • It can be a big mistake to choose schools who are the cheapest and buying on price alone may cost you more to learn in the long run as you may need more lessons than if you learnt with us
  • Private instruction is available for women with our registered female instructors
  • Block booking is a firm favourite.

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 dictate when you progress, or 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 15 different fully-qualified driving instructors that are DBS (CRB) 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 Our 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. 

New drivers especially rate Matt Shurmer Driving School very highly but full licence holders may also enjoy taking a refresher course to revisit their driving skills.  

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.
