"I started off with another driving school, but soon realised I was not going to reach a pass anytime soon, so moved to Matt Shurmer after a friend who lives in Orpington recommended the company. Learning to drive was better than expected and I had a much nicer instructor than last time! I liked Lucy's teaching methods because rather than pointing things out directly, she’d question or prompt me to realise it for myself, which made me more aware of things around me. I would recommend you to others because I know there are driving companies who don't offer as much as Matt Shurmer Driving School do, which I’d want my friends to know about so they wouldn’t do what I did and start off with a bad company, then have to move. I can’t think of any improvements that could have been made."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of their good reviews and competitive price. Learning to drive was pretty much as I expected - practice, practice and practice! Lee is amazing - one of the best! He made driving easy to follow and enjoyable. I would recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to anyone and definitely recommend Lee, as he knows what each individual’s needs are and tailors his methods to satisfy such needs, in order to pass the driving test in a desirable time frame."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of its fantastic reputation. Also a lot of my friends went with them. I think driving is at first a lot more difficult and overwhelming than you think, but as you start to learn and experience more, it becomes easier in time. Ashley's teaching methods were really great - I really appreciated the faith that was put into me along with the reflection parts of the lesson to see where I did well and where I needed to improve. I'd recommend you to friends as you're such a renowned local firm who work so hard for us to succeed and will not rush us to the test or take us for granted."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because they were recommended by a friend. I found out there was a lot to learn before I was a confident driver, and I didn’t expect to be straight onto the roads, but I am really happy I got stuck into it. I thought Lucy's teaching methods were excellent. She was always patient and I learnt things quickly using her methods. I would recommend you to a friend because I felt relaxed in the car and you always knew what was best for me. I can't think of anything that could have been done better -I was very happy with the service."

"I knew that Matt Shurmer Driving School is a big, well known driving school and I've seen many students have passed with them. I feel that learning to drive was exactly what I expected and there was nothing I did not expect. I found Tracey's teaching methods very helpful, as everything was well explained meaning that I was getting the best from my lessons, making sure I was taught to the best standard. I would recommend you to others because I enjoyed my lessons and felt my confidence improved after every lesson, making me feel confident on the day of my test. I do not feel that anything could’ve been done differently/better."

"The most important criteria for me when choosing a Driving Instructor/School was that I wanted a calm and patient instructor with good reviews, and structured lessons that were affordable. Having previously had lessons with an instructor that I didn’t get on with, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy my lessons with Matt Shurmer Driving School as much as I did. I also thought it would take me a lot longer to be ready to pass my test. Gavin was a really calm and patient instructor, which was exactly what I needed. I really appreciated that when I made mistakes, he didn’t point them out straight away (which would have distracted me and put me off) - he waited until we had stopped and then explained what I had done wrong and how I should be doing it instead. He was really encouraging and made me feel comfortable enough to ask questions when I was unsure of something. I would absolutely recommend you to others because learning to drive was enjoyable, and I was fully prepared to take my test. Also because I felt supported by a credible, professional driving school. Nothing could have been done better to improve."

"I initially chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because some of my family had passed first time with them. It soon became clear to me why this was the case. Jeff was an excellent instructor as he stayed very calm even when I made mistakes, and taught me much more efficient ways of doing things. Initially I found learning to drive incredibly challenging, however with the help of my instructors it soon became easier over time and before I knew it, it became fairly natural. I will certainly be recommending Jeff to any of my friends who are looking to learn to drive, simply because his style of teaching would suit anyone - calm and patient. I can't say much could have been done better - I only took a while down to personal reasons!"

"The most important criteria for me when choosing Matt Shurmer Driving School was that I wanted to find somewhere I would feel comfortable and encouraged when behind the wheel, as my nerves where putting me off driving initially. I also wanted to be able to trust that the driving instructor/school would be honest with progress and not rush to get a test date if I wasn’t prepared. Learning to drive was a lot less scary than expected and not as hard as I initially thought it was going to be, especially when it came to gear changes. Gavin's teaching methods were very good as I never felt pressured or anxious (which I can often easily feel), as I knew if I made mistakes I wouldn’t be made to feel embarrassed and would always receive constructive criticism. I would recommend you to others as I felt learning to drive was made as easy as possible and I could not have felt more comfortable than I did. I felt customer service and my learning experience was at the highest standard."

I would recommend the Matt Shurmer Driving School to my friends because for me it was a very positive experience.

Also, I knew people who had passed their test who had learnt with them so I felt confident in choosing this driving school. Learning to drive was a fun and new experience which I enjoyed greatly. The lessons each week were interesting and exciting. Learning to drive was better than I expected! Tracey’s teaching methods were great. I always felt at ease and knew I could ask for tips to make driving easier. Tracey was always encouraging with a great smile and that made learning to drive more fun and a lot easier. I would recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School because learning to drive was fun and enjoyable. I felt confident doing both my theory and practical test due to the support of the company and my instructor. Tracey was a wonderful teacher and I would recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School and Tracey at the drop of a hat to anyone who wants to learn to drive! A great company and thank you so much!"

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because it came highly recommended by a friend. Learning to drive was much harder than I expected but as the hours passed I became more confident with my ability. This was down to Simon’s brilliant teaching methods. He was very patient, gave clear explanations when unsure on something and always gave constructive feedback at the end of each lesson so you know what your strengths and weakness are. Simon is very easy to talk to and has a good sense of humour which always kept lessons fun. We drove around different places each week which kept lessons interesting but it also allowed me to experience a variety of different roads. Simon didn’t just teach me how to pass a driving test, he taught me how to be an all-round safe driver. I would recommend Simon and the Matt Shurmer Driving School to anybody thinking of learning to drive and could not fault the experience."

"The main reason I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School was because my father found them. Learning to drive was a lot harder than I expected and it took many more hours than I expected. Tony was very patient and helpful during the beginner stage and as the classes and level progressed, he tweaked his teaching methods to encourage a high standard of driving. Overall his methods suited me and I want to thank him for his flexibility and all the hard work he put in to get me a pass. The notes Tony gave were fantastic, but the videos he introduced recently have proven to be very helpful. I would recommend you to others as the service is professional."

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School as I knew a few of my friends had passed with them before and they had all recommended it to me for when I eventually took up driving lessons. Once we enquired about having lessons we were contacted back almost immediately, and I was in the drivers seat very quickly after that. Learning to drive was very exciting but initially quite different to what I had expected. Understanding everything inside and outside of the car took some getting used to, but I soon got the hang of it. Dean’s teaching methods were fantastic. He helped me to understand everything quickly and made sure I understood where and when I went wrong. He took things at a pace that I was comfortable with and made sure I was confident on everything we had done up to that point before moving on. I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to my friends as they slotted me in with an instructor very quickly and delivered on all that was advertised.”

 “The main reason why I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School was because I have dyslexia and they teach drivers with additional needs, as well as the good customer reviews and great value for money. Learning to drive was a lot easier than I was expecting it to be. My instructor Simon was aware of my dyslexia and made me feel at ease from the first lesson. He made me feel confident as a learner driver due to his calm and friendly approach to teaching. I would highly recommend the Matt Shurmer Driving School to everyone as my instructor Simon has helped me grow in confidence and because of him, I passed my test first time.

Getting back to driving after such a long time was very scary as I’m not a big fan of being in cars let alone the thought of being the one in control.

A patient instructor is needed for a learner driver, and I would not hesitate to say Dean is patient, highly patient and persistent on making sure you learn all skills of driving of the highest standard. On other fronts, Dean was very professional and would arrive exactly on time for the lessons, and I repeat on all lessons; he was very flexible in choosing the lessons (topics) and open to discuss any questions or queries I had. His persistent reminders, patiently, corrected my mirror issues. His guidance and constant supervision helped me get over many of my bad habits. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone who wants to learn defensive driving of the highest level. I will recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to friends and relatives as they are the best in providing quality services. Indeed they are very very good in training you pass your practical test in minimum attempts however I could see their aim is to instil in a learner driving skills of the highest standard and as close to the ones written in DVLA manual. I was horrified after the first lesson and thought I would never be able to learn driving. My misconception smeared out with time and was thoroughly enjoying the lessons and driving. I used to prepare before the lessons and it helped me a lot in learning quickly specially after building the basic foundation. Rest assured your team of professionals are highly skilled especially Dean as I learned driving with him, under his able guidance. All the best to Matt Shurmer Driving School and the entire team.”

“The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because the reviews looked good and the price wasn’t too bad compared to others. My learning experience was excellent with the Matt Shurmer Driving School and it kept up to my expectations. My driving instructor Gavin Williams was very thorough, very encouraging and very patient. His teaching methods are very on point and better than other instructors I’ve had in the past. I would definitely recommend the Matt Shurmer Driving School to friends and family. Its worth the money. I don’t have any suggestions as to what you could do better. I passed so that says it all for me! Thanks again.”  Customer Reviews Sidcup Cheryl S

“The main reason I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School was because of the great reviews I read online. I found learning to drive a daunting experience but with the help from Neil who’s clear instructions, easy to remember techniques and (a lot of) patience, helped put me at ease behind the wheel and gave me the skills and confidence to pass my test. I would recommend him to anyone looking to start driving.”

I would definitely recommend the school to others as lessons were flexible.” Customer Reviews Sidcup Zara E

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because I wanted safety, experience and consistency. Teaching all aspects in driving should be consistent. This makes the learner understand and value those basic safety measures. I also wanted an instructor that had keen assessment skills, was a good communicator, and has the will to teach and not just sit beside you waiting for the lesson to finish while driving. Teaching with conviction and willingness to support the learner in every lesson was also important to me. When I started learning to drive, I actually did not expect much but just driving and to pass the test. I thought learning to drive will be stressful with an instructor, but it was the complete opposite towards the middle of the lessons. I enjoyed it very much and most importantly, I have learned a great amount of skills and knowledge that I can share to others or even my family members. Dean is a very good teacher and a very good driving instructor at that. He gave me confidence from day one, even with all the mistakes and risky manoeuvres and bad habits that I have collected over the years. He also gave constant encouragement, highlighted areas that needed improvement, and gave constructive criticism to boost my morale after a lesson. One thing about his method is consistency, and that’s what I like about this driving experience. I would definitely recommend you to others because the lesson fee is competitive, and the 2 hourly lessons are a good idea for continuity, and lastly because of professionalism. I cannot think of anything that could have been done better based on my personal experience. It has been a productive endeavour and lifelong skills acquired through the school and instructor.” Customer Reviews Sidcup Geovanni A

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of their flexibility and price. It was also important that the school had a good pass rate, meaning teaching methods were effective. Learning to drive was initially harder than I anticipated, as I initially found bigger roads and roundabouts quite daunting. However, once I felt in control of the car and confident in my driving ability, this was no longer an issue. Lucy was very patient and always explained things well, providing the right amount of support whilst still allowing me to practice being independent on the road. I would definitely recommend the school as I have really enjoyed my experience. My driving instructor made me feel confident enough to now drive well on my own. Nothing more could have been done to improve my experience.” Customer Reviews Sidcup Jemima D-E

“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because they were recommended to me by a friend who had recently passed. Learning to drive was just as I thought it would be at the beginning. I thought I was never going to be able to do it, but by the end I was doing it automatically. Lucy was AMAZING! She never got frustrated if I didn’t understand and always explained things simply and asked if I was comfortable with what we were doing. She was VERY supportive when I was anxious. I would definitely recommend you to a friend- in fact my brother wants to start learning at some point and I have told him to come to you. Nothing could have been done better. Everything was great.” Customer Reviews Sidcup Rachel K

I also liked that Lucy had a Ford Fiesta and was flexible with my driving lessons. Learning to drive took a bit longer than I expected, but I didn’t have many preconceptions.
