Who will you trust? Customer Reviews Sevenoaks Zak C

"The main reason I chose the Matt Shurmer Driving School was because of several recommendations I had from people who had previously been taught by Lucy.
Learning to drive involved more than I expected. Lucy made sure I was safe on the road rather than just trying to get me passed off as quick as possible. Explanations given were simple and easy to understand and Lucy was very patient. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and it made me feel confident on the road.
Lucy's teaching techniques were efficient in making sure I knew what I was doing without over complicating things. Advice and instructions were given on the move as well as stationary and Lucy allowed me a safe degree of freedom whilst in the lessons, in terms of what I wanted to learn and whilst I was driving.
​Lucy was very patient and if I didn’t understand something or didn’t perfect it, she would allow me to repeat it until I felt comfortable. I would definitely recommend you to others."

Why choose us to teach you? Customer Reviews Sevenoaks Kelly F

"My partner chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because he heard all good things. I was always scared to drive at first. But Dean showed confidence and showed me that it wasn’t that scary.

Dean is a fabulous teacher and I couldn’t rate him enough. He puts you at such ease. I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer, especially Dean, because without your help I would never have passed with such confidence.

​Thanks again Dean- top driving instructor!"

Driving School Sevenoaks | 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 instrcutors 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.
