Who will you trust? Customer Reviews Bromley Abi S

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because I had a recommendation for Dean as a driving instructor. I was very nervous and apprehensive about learning to drive, as I had previously had driving lessons with another school and didn’t feel confident with driving at all, so I was quite daunted.
Learning to drive with Dean was much easier and I stopped dreading driving lessons. Throughout the course of learning with Dean, I grew in confidence. Dean is very calm, always allowing me to make my own decisions and has fully prepared me to be a safe driver on my own and I now look forward to and enjoy driving, which is a point I never thought I would reach.
Dean always asks questions to get you to question why you’ve done something or what you should’ve done differently to break you into the mindset of forward planning and decision making, rather than just telling you what to do.
All of the manoeuvres were well taught - instead of following a strict method, Dean taught me to use my own judgement so I will be comfortable with using them in the real world of driving and I actually understood what I was doing and how that was affecting the car. Finally, even when I was hard on myself, Dean was able to reflect some of his positive thinking into me, encouraging me so I believed in myself and passed my test!"

Why choose us to teach you? Customer Reviews Bromley Ashwanee R

"The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because I read the reviews and feedback from previous learners. 
When I decided to learn Matt Shurmer was my first choice but there were no availabilities at the time. Hence I ended up taking lessons from other instructors and I did not see any progress in my driving. Instead I used to feel less confident than I was before, to a point where I would be scared on the day of my lesson in case my confidence got shattered further.
I decided to try Matt Shurmer Driving School again and I was so happy when I received a phone call from Matt. Fran has been very patient and calm throughout. After reading the reviews from the Matt Shurmer Driving School website I was hoping to get her and I did.
She helped me overcome my fear of driving and I cannot thank her enough. I had started enjoying my lessons and feeling happy to be behind the wheel despite the mistakes I was doing.
Learning to drive has been a challenging journey for me and Fran plays a big part in it. I feel much better and more confident about driving and I am looking forward to it. I will always remember Fran for being very supportive. I would definitely recommend Fran to anyone because of the patience, support and reassurance she gave me during the time I was learning. I personally could not have expected anything more from the Matt Shurmer Driving School or Fran."


Driving School Bromley | 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 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 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.
