Who will you trust? Customer Reviews Welling Jenny B

"For years I have put off learning to drive as it is something that has really scared me and the thought of taking lessons filled me with dread. However with Neil as my instructor I gained a confidence I never knew that I had. From my very first lesson he made me feel instantly relaxed and safe.
He was always so patient and let me work things through at my own speed, being completely understanding about the anxieties I felt about driving. By talking things through together he would work out how my mind worked and taught me in a way that I could really understand.
His continued support has been amazing and I never failed to return from a lesson without a smile on my face. I can honestly say that if it wasn't for him I would have given up with the lessons a long time ago. Neil has not only helped me become a safe driver, he has also helped me to grow in confidence and believe in myself and I am so grateful for that.
I would without doubt recommend him to anyone about to start taking lessons. I will definitely miss him!"​

Why choose us to teach you? Customer Reviews Welling Daniel L

“I was recommended Matt Shurmer Driving School by friends whose family had success with Simon along with immense praise for the man himself. All of them had passed first time too so the results were testaments in themselves. For the most part the experience of learning was what I expected in regards to the difficulties and successes.
What I wasn’t expecting was that the instruction would be of such high caliber. I wasn’t being simply taught to drive in order to pass a test on a set day but instead to become a confident and well rounded driver.
This was Simon’s primary concern and a mantra that made me confident for the future as a driver. Simon’s approach was practically perfect – critical but always positive and filled with praise – the precise balance. Simon always made me feel at ease and it was always clear that he only ever wanted the very best for his students. That and his superb and individual sense of humor!
​Each session was always a pleasure no matter how nervous or difficult I may have felt the lesson had been. Furthermore a testament to his teaching was that Simon did all he could to convey methods and methodologies to ensure that it was bespoke to my needs and understanding ensuring that I was achieving the high standards I am sure all his students obtain. I’d challenge you to find better.”​

Driving School Welling | 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 Welling 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 Welling 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 DBS (CRB) 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 Welling 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 Welling 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.
