"The main reason I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School was because it had good reviews online and they were a local company.
Learning to drive was more difficult than I originally expected it to be due to anxiety, but I eventually overcame this as I got more confident in my driving. Graham’s teaching methods were really good.
He is very professional, gives very detailed explanations of manoeuvres and road safety and provided encouragement to build my confidence in driving every lesson.
I would recommend you to others as Graham is an excellent instructor who always arrived early for the lessons so we could review what manoeuvres to practice. Nothing could have been done better."

"Initially I came across Matt Shurmer Driving School from a Google search when looking for "Best Driving School in Bexleyheath Area". Looking at the testimonials and having experienced the service 1st hand, I'm happy to report that Google has it spot on! Learning to drive was very enjoyable and a bit more involved than what I initially thought, having come from driving a motorbike. Lessons were always well thought out and planned, and always took my input and confidence levels into consideration when deciding what to practise and learn. Kelly's teaching methods were brilliant. She was always very considerate to my needs and wants, as well as being a great person to talk to as well. I felt at ease throughout my lessons and even to a certain degree, on my test, which is nothing short of a miracle! We always had clear goals and her instructions we clear and concise throughout. I can honestly say without her expert help and assistance, we may very well have had a different result today - thank you! I would recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School and especially Kelly. The service has been flawless from my 1st contact, to passing my test today. The flexibility of the lesson times, days and durations are great, and one of the few that I could actually make. You put me at ease and left me feeling confident and looking forward to subsequent lessons. Honestly, nothing could have been done better. I've had a great experience with Matt Shurmer Driving School as a company and even more so with my Instructor Kelly who is honestly amazing!"
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!
