"I chose Matt Shurmer Driving School as they offered automatic lessons. It was the best decision I could have made because my instructor Matt was fantastic. He is a wonderful teacher who is patient, reassuring and made me feel like I could achieve. There were a few wobbly moments, but he wasn’t phased and helped me overcome them quickly. Matt is a really lovely man and I am so grateful to him for helping me pass my test first time. Thank you Matt for everything!"

"Neil is a brilliant instructor. I had been having lessons with other instructors before who I was really struggling with. Neil in contrast made the learning so relaxing and fun. He explained things in a simple way so I could understand them better. I really enjoyed learning with him. I will highly recommend Matt Shurmer Driving School to my friends. I cannot give any recommendation on how to improve your service as it is very good.”

" Lucy helped me to lay a solid foundation so I felt more confident progressing onto harder manoeuvres and higher speeds. Before learning how to drive, I thought it would be very challenging, however Lucy’s friendliness and teaching methods helped me to progress faster than I would’ve somewhere else. I am unable to think of anything that could be improved on - I enjoyed learning to drive and would definitely recommend both the driving company and Lucy to friends."

Lee D

Lee Dibley Driving Instructor

Driving Instructor

Manual


" Lee was so supportive and encouraging every step of the way. When I first started learning with Lee I said “teach me to drive not to pass a test” and he did just that. I’ve never had a teacher in driving or in school who was as engaging and supportive as Lee. He understands you as a learner – what your strengths and weaknesses are and helps you develop into a safe driver. He is open and honest about things and delivers feedback constructively. I would hands down recommend Lee and Matt Shurmer Driving School. I’ve already done so for my sister! Nothing could have been done to improve – 5* rating from me!”

Kelly E

Kelly Eagle Driving Instructor

Driving Instructor

 "Kelly’s methods of teaching were great. She had her own style of teaching which worked with pretty much all of my driving. Some of her techniques didn’t work, but a sign of a great teacher was Kelly’s ability to change to suit me. Not only did I pass 1st time with the great teaching skills, but also I wasn’t made to feel like just a name. I was treated as part of the school. It wasn’t about taking as much money from you as possible. I was listened to and they adapted anything they could for my needs and they cared. If you were to ask me if I’d change any part of the driving school, I wouldn’t, as I and the reviews speak for themselves. On a whole, great school and great people. Safe, friendly and reliable."
