“I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because it was recommended to me by my friend who also passed with the same driving school.
Learning to drive was very difficult and confusing especially in the beginning but with the help of my driving instructors Jeff and Fran, I developed all the skills that I needed to become a good and safe driver.
Also they were very patient with me and their driving methods were very effective.
I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to my friends because it's the best driving school out there if you really want to become a safe driver. There’s nothing that they could have done better. They’re just perfect!”

"When choosing my driving instructor, patience and understanding were the most important criteria, as well as how qualified they were.
Learning to drive was a lot harder than I expected due to having problems with a previous instructor which really affected my confidence.
Ralph's teaching methods were easy to follow but also very thorough. I would recommend you to others because when I came to Matt Shurmer Driving School I explained that I struggled with confidence, and with this in mind, I was allocated a wonderful instructor who could deal with that really well. Nothing could have been done better!"
· 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.
We have teamed up with confidentdrivers.co.uk to give you free access to their online program.
