"My Driving Instructor was Lucy, which I will always recommend with all my heart. She is professional and amazing in how she explains and gives you directions. 10 stars for Lucy being an extraordinary woman and person. I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because my friends recommended Lucy to me. At the beginning I wasn't sure about it since I did not know anybody, but I went with my instincts and remained with her and never regretted it. I passed my test on the 1st attempt with Lucy's help. Finally I can say I know how to park the car, in which Lucy gave me lots of confidence in. She had amazing teaching methods that were better than the way I have been taught before."

"Previously, I had a bad experience with another driving school. I had seen Matt Shurmer Driving School cars around the area, and then in my in street, which led me to search them up online. I saw great reviews online and got in touch immediately. Learning to drive was more daunting than I had expected if I’m being honest, but that got better with time. Having a good instructor is definitely a game changer. Jarmila's teaching methods were really great. She was extremely patient throughout and she had a calm presence, which made learning easier. She was attentive to the areas I needed to work on and was really great at explaining how I could improve. Most of all, she was very encouraging and that made all the difference. I would definitely recommend you to my friends, mainly owing to the overall professionalism I encountered. In fact, I’ve already recommended Jarmila to my sister who is going to learn how to drive in the summer. There’s absolutely nothing I would change. My experience has been a breeze from the moment I first got in touch."

"My Driving Instructor was Dean Wyatt and I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because it had been recommended to me by multiple friends. Learning to drive wasn’t an easy process and I was very lucky to have Dean as my instructor because I honestly couldn’t have thought of any improvements he could make. I always felt comfortable in my lessons and also always felt that progress had been made each lesson. Dean was an outstanding teacher. I would 100% recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive. Thank you for all your help."

"Fran was my instructor, but I have to say a big thank you to Jo who covered for Fran on my practical test, and she was amazing. I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because 3 of my friends recommended them to me. Learning to drive was much easier than I expected it would be. Fran had nice teaching methods. They made a good experience which was not boring like it looks like it will be. I would definitely recommend you to others because I believe Matt Shurmer Driving School is the best. Thank you very much for everything you did for me- you are the best!"

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because of its great reputation about which I had learned both from online research and through word-of-mouth. As a result, my expectations were high, however I can confidently say that my driving experience with Lucy exceeded those expectations with ease. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every lesson, during which Lucy provided an amazing framework for approaching aspects of driving that I might have initially found more challenging than others. In this way, I was able to build my confidence and my skill level without becoming too fixated upon rigid methods, but rather by applying that broader framework that Lucy helped me to build. I would certainly recommend the school to my friends and family because of how much momentum I was able to build with my driving in such a relatively short space of time. I have completed my lessons having developed a new level of driving confidence that I can now take forward to further build my skill set. Thank you for all your advice, help and support, Lucy."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because a family member found out about them. Learning to drive was much less scary than I thought it was going to be. My Driving Instructor Neil C always explained everything clearly and let me choose if I wanted to go back over anything I was unsure of. He also made me feel confident about my driving, especially in the lesson just before my test. I would definitely recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to my friends. Nothing could have been done better."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because my Driving Instructor moved to them from another school and I remained a student with her. I expected learning to drive to be a lot harder in some ways and a lot easier in others. With practice, as with everything, it became that much more like clockwork and co-ordinated. Jarmila is a wonderful Driving Instructor and I can't sing her praises enough. She is supportive, kind and also firm. She allows me to be aware of the areas I need to improve, which I found so helpful to actually implement within my practice. She also is very aware of the strengths and weaknesses of her students and makes sure to challenge them, helping to build confidence fast and squash anxieties! I'd recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School, as Jarmila decided to switch as she felt it was a good decision and I trust her judgement. I honestly cannot think of anything that could have been done better."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because my sister passed with them so I thought I could too. Learning to drive was harder than I expected, but after some lessons I picked it up. Gavin's teaching methods were broken down well and I easily picked them up. I would recommend you to others as it is a great way to start driving for beginners."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because my sister had passed first time with them, so I knew they were reliable. I thought learning to drive would take ages for me to do, but Colin had made things easy for me to understand so I learnt quicker than I expected to. I found Colin's teaching methods very good because they were explained clearly, which had made things a lot simpler for me. I would recommend you to a friend because you helped me pass a lot quicker than I thought I would. I was satisfied with my lessons and don’t think they needed any improvements."

Graham's method of teaching was great as he gave clear instructions in a friendly, patient manor. I would definitely recommend Graham as an instructor and the driving school, as the Theory Test Pro app helped me a lot. I can't think of anything for the service to be improved."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because several times I'd heard about it being recommended by friends and my older brother who had lessons with them. At first the clutch control side of things was a surprise to me, but main roads then got easier with experience quicker than I thought. Simon taught me in the best way in my opinion, by using the most simple methods that actually make sense for manoeuvres. Some others teach in ways that are too text book (parallel parking for example) in my opinion. For all of driving as well, Simon made everything make sense as to how the road works and how to and how not to drive on different roads. I would definitely recommend you to my friends because I haven't once even considered changing my instructor and I now feel I know really how to and how not to drive safely."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because they were local and had great reviews. I had the pleasure of having Graham as my Driving Instructor. Straight from the off he made me feel completely comfortable. He was very thorough with his great teaching methods and made sure I was confident with everything I had learned. He also made sure that everything I found difficult we would take the time to practice more. I never thought I would ever pass my driving test, but Graham definitely put my anxieties at ease and I passed FIRST TIME! The only  complaint was Graham was a Charlton fan and to top off passing my driving test, Millwall beat Charlton 2-1 the same week! Thanks again graham for all your help and the football banter was great! I would definitely recommend you to my friends as everything was great."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because after looking at various driving schools, I was focused more on looking at reviews of specific instructors in order to find the right fit for my personality- and Fran seemed best suited to someone like me, who was more nervous. Personally, it was about building my confidence as much as it was about technical skill. I had to learn more about trusting my instincts and not over-hesitating to avoid potentially dangerous situations. Fran’s teaching methods perfectly suited my learning style- in terms of everything from her patience to her rhymes and acronyms to remember things by. I would without doubt recommend you to others, mainly because of Matt Shurmer’s reliability. Fran was always punctual and would give me advanced notice should a lesson need to be cancelled or rescheduled. I also greatly appreciated her flexibility on weeks during the school holidays or exam season to find lesson slots that best suited both of us. Nothing could have been done better to be honest- my driving experience was great!"

"Learning to drive was so different compared to what I was expecting. I always went out with my parents and saw how people drove. I thought it would be a breeze as you didn’t see many people mess up, but it was much different in the skills you had to know. Scott was always so patient with how he taught and he knew how to calm me down if I got stressed at all. I would recommend you to others because off the way you knew how to help me in certain different situations (obviously I don’t know how other instructors do it), but I thought it was amazing how I learnt a lot quicker than I thought. I honestly can’t think of anything that you could have done better. I drove to Lakeside today on the M25!"

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because I was originally with a company that I didn’t like so a friend recommended me to them. Learning to drive was a lot easier than expected. It took me a while, but I felt all the time I took was necessary to ensure I was a safe driver. Annie’s methods of teaching were very helpful with lots of constructive feedback to ensure I was always on the right path so I could pass. I would recommend you to a friend as I have found this Driving School very helpful and believe they have a high standard of teaching. I can’t think of any improvements I would suggest."

"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because they offered good value for money compared to others and were flexible with their block bookings etc- plus they had instructor availability. Learning to drive was challenging and difficult at times, but overall rewarding. I thought it would be easier than it actually was. My Driving Instructor Annie was very thorough. She would often talk through issues before and after each driving lesson, using diagrams, maps, and examples to help overcome any confusion, which made it easier to understand. I would recommend you to my friends because of your good prices and teaching."

 "I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School because I have seen a lot of their cars driving around and have heard good things about the teaching quality they give. I have had previous learning experience before learning with Dave and this time it was a lot easier than before. Learning to drive well definitely takes longer than I had thought. Dave was very good at helping me stay calm and relaxed during my lessons, and before my test as well. I feel this is what made the difference between passing and failing my test. I would definitely recommend you to friends as the teaching has been great and everyone I have spoken to about lessons or payment have been very friendly and helpful. I have no complaints about my lessons with Dave, everything was very easy."

"I have never been a confident person and new situations worry me, so the thought of being on the road left me at times anxious. After my first few lessons with Jarmila I felt supported, at ease, and that with her help I would get the hang of new scenarios. Jarmila constantly reminded me and created different road scenarios to make it easier for me to remember. Her calm approach made me feel so in control and at times when it all felt like too much, she kept me positive and focused. We went through things I didn’t feel as confident on and this meant each lesson I came away with so much more knowledge and confidence. Each lesson was so well structured so I really used them to the maximum. Jarmila was kind, calm and thoughtful and I always felt like even after hard lessons I was doing well. Her encouragement was invaluable and I am so thankful to her for always keeping me on track. I would recommend Jarmila in a heartbeat and have recommended her in the past to a friend who also passed. Her approach is so effective- a natural teacher. Nothing at all could have been done better. From the start to the finish the lessons were well thought out and the proof is that I felt so ready for the test and that is all down to Jarmila. Passing meant so much to me as it was a journey to get here, as I was unwell and had to stop and start. Jarmila kept me focused and gave me the courage to not give up."

 "Dave was a personal recommendation. Learning to drive with Dave was much more laid back than I expected. I also passed quicker than I expected when I began my lessons again. Dave was always so patient and never made a fuss when you made some mistakes. He was always friendly and easy to talk to- which made me relax more in the car, which I needed to pass my test. I was so relaxed, I used to feel like I was a qualified driver giving someone a lift rather than in a lesson! I would definitely recommend you to my friends. In fact I already have. I feel like Dave is the sort of person who could get on with every body and can make even the most nervous learners pass their tests. I have no suggestions regarding Dave’s teaching, I feel very lucky to have come across such a great instructor."

 "I didn't know anyone who had recently been learning to drive, so I had nobody to provide me with recommendations. I decided to look into Matt Shurmer Driving School, as I often would see his cars driving around in my area. I compared prices with a few other schools online, checked the reviews and all seemed good , so I decided to go for it with them. Learning to drive went much better than I expected. After about 10 hours of lessons I already felt ready for the driving test. Neil C was a fantastic Driving Instructor. He was always calm and relaxed and exceedingly patient. He provided the right environment to help me regain confidence behind the wheel and I particularly liked his approach to teaching the manoeuvres- something that I struggled with at my previous driving school. I would definitely recommend you to family/friends- in fact, I already have. My brother started lessons with Matt Shurmer Driving School this week! No suggestions for improvements- everything was great!"

Learning to drive was initially more daunting than I first thought it would be, however with a good instructor and after a few lessons I felt far more comfortable and the roads.

I think my expectations about learning to drive were similar to how it went overall. I connected with Kelly's teaching methods. She is patient, methodical and consistent, as well as very encouraging and she didn't put too much unnecessary pressure on me. I will recommend you to others because Kelly is an excellent instructor.
