"The most important thing when choosing the Matt Shurmer Driving School was their ability to fit in with my work times as my husband works night's, so I'm unable to commit to evenings. It was also important that they had a good reputation and I read many fantastic reviews for them. When I called and spoke to the school to make enquires, they were polite, friendly and understood everything I needed. Learning to drive was exactly as I had thought - a little scary, lots of learning and enjoyable! Tracey's teaching methods were brilliant - she was helpful, knowledgeable, understanding and patient. She ensured I went back over any mistakes in time for my test and made me believe in myself. I have already recommended the school to my husband for after Christmas and would always recommend them. I don’t believe there is anything that could have been improved. I am happy and will miss my lessons with Tracey. Thank you for all you did."

"The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because I saw their cars around the area and I searched them up and they looked good, so I went for it. Learning to drive was a lot better than what I expected - it was brilliant! Lee's teaching methods were brilliant - I couldn't of asked for a better driving instructor. I would definitely recommend you to others as you offer the best learning experience for a new driver. Nothing could have been done better."

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because everyone I spoke to about learning to drive had a very positive experience with Matt Shurmer. I thought Matt’s method of teaching was great. I learned at a good pace and never felt uncomfortable in the lessons. Matt made it quite clear on a lesson to lesson basis what I’d done well and not so well. I would definitely recommend you. After speaking to people who learned elsewhere it seems I had the best experience.”

"Matt Shurmer Driving School came out as my preferred choice after I researched different schools online and compared reviews on Facebook pages and websites. Learning to drive was as I remember as this was my second time learning after stopping years previous. I found Fran's teaching methods suited my learning style. They were to the point and effective and I would definitely recommend her. I found the whole process smooth and professional. The access to the theory test suite was also very good. Nothing could have been done better as I didn't have any issues."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of their good reviews and because I had previously used a renowned organisation but was extremely disappointed. I was also pleased that you had availability of lessons as per my required day and time. Learning to drive was much easier and smoother compared to what I expected. Gavin's teaching methods were the best and could not have been better. He identified and worked on my weakness from day 1 and was very well organised. I would absolutely recommend you to others because of my amazing experience. I can't think of any improvement. I'm not saying this because I passed. Lessons were very well planned and cost was also as per the industry standards."

I did not have fun with my previous instructors. Fran was great. She pointed out where I went wrong and the reason why so I could correct my mistakes. She also explained her concepts and made sure to ask if I needed help/directions with things. I would definitely recommend you to others - always on time, great communication and no cancellations of lessons. Everything was great!"

"The most important thing for me when choosing a Driving Instructor/School was about me feeling comfortable. The reason I chose this Matt Shurmer Driving School is because my older brother also passed under them. So from this, it was easy for me to chose them. I went on to ask and request for Gavin as he taught my brother, so I knew we would get on fine. I ensured that I could be fitted into their schedule and that they could help me reach my goal, which was passing in the Summer. If I couldn’t form a bond and connection with my instructor, I don’t think the time with them would of gone the same way. When learning to drive, I realised very quickly that you have to be 100% focused all the time. There are a lot of things to learn which I didn’t expect, but after learning all of them it makes much more sense. Gavin was great...couldn’t ask for anyone better. I didn’t feel pressured at all. I left comfortable, and I was guided through every step - even through my mistakes. I would 100% recommend you to others. Not one thing could have been done better - it was perfect for me."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School and specifically Jeff because he had passed three of my friends and they all said he was a very good instructor and they weren’t wrong! I thought that learning to drive would be extremely hard and impossible for me specifically as I had a lot of safety concerns, but in reality and with Jeff’s help, it was a challenge to overcome these worries but I overcame them. Jeff’s teaching methods are very professional and he taught me a lot of tips that I found really helpful and will continue to use to be a safe driver. I would recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School and specifically Jeff to any one of my friends learning to drive, as he is a really good teacher, very easy to talk to and get along with, and he is professional at what he does. I don’t believe that there is anything that could of been done better. It was a fun and enjoyable experience and I got the result I wanted."

"I heard about Matt Shurmer Driving School through a friend who had a great experience with Lucy and passed first time, so it seemed logical when looking for a driving school to try them out. I am very glad that I did, as Lucy helped me to lay a solid foundation so I felt more confident progressing onto harder manoeuvres and higher speeds. Before learning how to drive, I thought it would be very challenging, however Lucy’s friendliness and teaching methods helped me to progress faster than I would’ve somewhere else. I am unable to think of anything that could be improved on - I enjoyed learning to drive and would definitely recommend both the driving company and Lucy to friends (I’ve already mentioned it to a few!)."

"The most important thing to me when finding a driving school/ instructor is that would teacher me to be a confident and safe driver, and that had great feedback. Knowing that the school had a high success rate was reassuring. Learning to drive matched my expectation and requires a lot of hard work and dedication. I found my instructors teaching methods to be fantastic. I was encouraged to face my fears on the road and felt mentored - Gavin always presented new ways to make things easier for me."

"I used Matt Shurmer Driving School and specifically Jeff because he came recommended. Learning to drive went faster than expected. I was amazed at how much you pick up in your first lessons - it's the perfecting and practice afterwards that takes the effort and time. I really appreciated Jeff's attention to detail, although I didn't realise at the time you need this in order to pass and to then go onto be a good driver. I also liked that in our lessons we went to lots of different places and routes so it didn't get tedious. I would recommend Jeff as a good instructor and think you are likely to pass with him."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School as it was recommended to me from a friend and it had very good reviews. I thought learning to drive was going to be extremely difficult but as my lessons progressed and with a lot of help from my instructor, he made it a lot easier and he made each lesson worthwhile. I found Lee's teaching methods very helpful. He was very understanding towards me if something went wrong. We would practice until it was right. He made every lesson worthwhile as it would be different skills and techniques each week and the day of my driving test he was very calm. We talked over a few things - nothing too strenuous. He gave me a lot of good advice towards my driving and I passed first time with only 4 driving faults. I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to my friends as I was so pleased with my outcome and I only managed it with the help from Lee and I think overall the way I was taught was very good. I felt safe, comfortable, secure and confident when taking my driving lessons each week. I personally don’t think there is anything that needs to be done better as I was pleased with every single driving lesson I took for the past 6 months and I would like to say thank you to Lee for getting me there."

"I heard about the Matt Shurmer Driving School because Lucy was recommended to my by my cousins girlfriend as she really enjoyed learning with her. My learning experience was a little bit harder than I expected as driving round with parents all the time they make it look very easy, especially with manoeuvres. I did find it quite hard to get my head round the size of the car during manoeuvres, which made me quite hesitant when parking. I really did enjoy the process of learning. Lucy explained everything very clearly from the first lesson and ensured I worked on every aspect that I was unsure of in lessons. Lucy also helped me calm down a lot before my test. I can’t think of anything that needs improvement at all and I would definitely recommend you to others."

“The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because they offer competitive rates for lessons but it doesn’t sacrifice on quality. It’s important for every learner to feel safe and comfortable and the professionalism of Matt Shurmer and my Driving Instructor Lee Dibley was incomparable. Previous to starting with Lee I’d had some lessons with another school about 3 years prior at which time I was convinced driving wasn’t for me. But since starting with Lee my perceptions and skills have been completely challenged. Not every lesson was great – on my part – but Lee was so supportive and encouraging every step of the way. When I first started learning with Lee I said “teach me to drive not to pass a test” and he did just that. Lee’s teaching methods are unique to say the least. I’ve never had a teacher in driving or in school who was as engaging and supportive as Lee. He understands you as a learner – what your strengths and weaknesses are and helps you develop into a safe driver. He is open and honest about things and delivers feedback constructively. I would hands down recommend Lee and Matt Shurmer Driving School. I’ve already done so for my sister! Nothing could have been done to improve – 5* rating from me!”

“The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because of it’s outstanding reputation in the area and recommendation from my parents. Learning to drive was a lot harder than expected because once you get used to the basics, refining it all is essential. The hardest part was probably learning to deal with the pressure and not to panic when you make mistakes. Fran’s teaching methods worked perfectly for me. She’s funny, approachable and doesn’t judge you when you make mistakes or get worked up about going wrong somewhere. Her explanations towards the techniques of driving where simple to understand and very effective. I would recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to other people as my experience was a very positive one.” Lulu Driscoll

Matt was very prompt in his response too. Learning to drive was definitely better than expected. I had previous lessons in a different part of the UK, which had not gone as well so my expectations were not so high to begin with. Simon was an excellent instructor.

“The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was due to the excellent feedback I had read about it and its reputation in my area. I had many pre-conceived ideas about driving… and it wasn’t like on Mario Cart, which I had hoped. Beginning to drive was a lot more difficult than I had expected. There were so many elements to take into account and at first it was slightly overwhelming. I thought if I could do everything super-fast I could manage everything, whereas in reality by speeding up my thought process I made more mistakes. In order to overcome this, with a lot of help from Matt, we worked on slowing down my brain to avoid overworking in places I really didn’t need to. But Matt also got the balance right of stopping me from looking to be perfect, whilst still stretching me to demand more from myself and “hold the biting point!” Matt was an amazing instructor, and I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking to learn to drive. He made an effort to personalise his teaching methods to how I learnt best which meant I was able to learn quickly and effectively. I looked forward to every one of my lessons because learning to drive with Matt was not only efficient but enjoyable too. Thank you Matt!”

“The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because the driving school had good reviews on the internet and the website was very helpful and easy to navigate with loads of up to date information about current driving instructors and other pupils positive experiences and feedback from them, all of which contributed to my final decision. Driving has been a previous challenge for me, in fact passing the actual test. As soon as I started having driving lessons with Jeff driving itself seemed less nerve wracking than expected and I was more positive and realistic about passing my test than I was with my previous driving school. Jeff has been amazing and great company. His patience and skills at explaining different road situations made me feel so comfortable behind the wheel. Jeff was very good at making sure I become a better driver and that I was able to apply the tips he was giving me to pass my test and enhance my driving experience. I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School, especially Jeff.

There was nothing that I could recommend you in doing better - I found everything was great."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of a recommendation from a friend. Learning to drive was a lot more difficult for me when on the roads than I had expected. There were so many difficulties and challenges due to conditions out of my control, such as cyclists and risky drivers. It was difficult to stay focused fully for two hours, but I did improve in this. Using the clutch well was challenging as I had not appreciated before how easy it was to stall. Ashley is a very calm instructor who never showed any sort of anger. He allowed me to drive independently but intervened or gave tips when needed. His reference points for my manoeuvres were really helpful. A nice guy to talk to who was very patient. I would recommend you to my friends as you were reliable, always on time and patient. There were no things that I thought that you could have done better - it was a good experience."

Learning to drive was more comfortable to what I thought and I expected it to be harder but as the lessons went by things became better.

“The main reason why I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School was because it was the school my older brother learned and passed with. It was recommended by friends and was local to my school too. Learning to drive, while easier than I thought it would be to get started, took longer than I expected to get it perfect and was more complex than I thought before. Neil’s teaching methods were very good. He was very patient and friendly without being too relaxed that I didn’t learn. I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to friends as it was easy and affordable to book lessons and I got on well with my instructor. I can’t think of any improvements, as I had no problems. Thank you very much – I’m glad I’ve finally passed.”

“The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because they were recommended by a friend. I thought learning to drive would be a lot slower paced and slightly harder than it was. Tracey’s teaching methods were very good. She adapted well to what my learning required – not too slow or fast. I would recommend you to others and have done so already. Everything was professional and well prepared. Nothing could be improved – it was great.”

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because I wanted a female instructor that put me at ease and built up my confidence with roundabouts. Learning to drive was 110% better than my previous instructor who was poor. I hated driving then, now I love it! Lucy’s teaching methods were spot on with good tips, as well as being friendly and a good laugh. I would 100% recommend you to others because Lucy is a fantastic instructor and lessons are reasonably priced at flexible times. Nothing could have been done better.” Customer Reviews Orpington Charley W

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of the cost of lessons and the flexibility of the instructors booking hours. It was also important for me to know how long Lucy had been doing the job for, so I knew she had lots of experience. Learning to drive was harder than what I expected because there are a lot of things to do at once, and you have to be aware of what’s around you at all times. Lucy’s teaching methods were very easy to follow and she taught me everything that I needed to know to pass my test. There was a lot of attention to detail, which was very good to make sure that everything was up to the standard that they needed to be. I would definitely recommend you to others because the prices are reasonable and the teaching quality is brilliant. Nothing could have been done better. My experience with your driving school was very good.” Customer Reviews Orpington Ryan F

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because they were local and offered a good price with blocks of lessons available. I also wanted a safe and comfortable driving school that would break down the steps so they were easy for me to understand. Initially, I was scared of driving and not confident in me or other drivers, but eventually, learning to drive was a lot less scary or difficult to do. Fran’s teaching methods were simple and clear, with helpful illustrations. As I’m a visual person with a photographic memory. I would recommend you to others because Fran was positive, down to earth, and she adjusted lessons to my own speed of learning. Nothing could have been done better. The website is really useful and easy to understand. They offer flexible hours and their rates are good.” Customer Reviews Orpington Gerrada L

“I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School because of their location, price and the positivity of the instructor. Learning to drive was easier with Neil than I expected. I had two previous driving instructors that it didn’t work out with. Neil’s teaching methods were brilliant- very easy to follow and I didn’t feel nervous. He boosted my confidence, particularly on approach to roundabouts, and he helped me time my observations and planning. I’m a classic over thinker and Neil gave me good strategies to improve on it. He even helped me improve aspects I was good at, like manoeuvres! I would recommend you to others because Neil is brilliant and made me feel a lot more confident. He made driving something I enjoy and look forward to rather than something I was scared of. I’m going to tell my partner to book Neil right away!” Customer Reviews Orpington Drew D
