Nothing to fault, quality, reliable instructor, recommended by a friend and not a bad word to say. Also have quite a few people I know learning with the same company who express the same opinion.

“No words can describe the gratitude I have for Matt, from day one Matt has literally made my driving experience an absolute dream. I had several instructors long before Matt but hadn’t really had the best experience, Rapide Driving School has by far an outstanding and professional approach when it comes to driving, never has Matt made me feel like giving up and gave me plenty of encouragement from the very beginning.

The methods covering every driving aspect are easy and simple to understand, I feel without Matt I would never have passed today and he always made me want to keep carrying on even when I felt like giving up. When learning to drive it’s important to find the right instructor and Matt has my full support on recommending him.

Thank you Matt for all your hard work and patience, just goes to show with a little encouragement and faith you can reach the goals you aim for. 100% rating for Rapide!”

“Matt was a great instructor. He explains everything thoroughly in a way that would suit all, and whenever I was nervous, Matt would reassure and calm any nerves. He sets you up in a manner that you will be ready to go into a test confident you will pass.

I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Rapide Driving and would recommend Matt to anyone. Much appreciated and many thanks.”

“I passed with only one minor and on my first attempt with Rapide. I loved the extra resources on the website such as the videos.

Since passing I’ve had motor training with Rapide which I’d thoroughly recommend. Thanks Matt!”

“Matt is a 5 Star driving instructor! He really made me feel confident at the wheel with his clear instructions. His methods for the manoeuvres were top class.

He was also very flexible for lessons and nearer the test, it felt like it was as important to him, as it was to me. I passed with 2 minors.”

Instructor: Hitz

My diving instructor was Hitz, and I highly recommend him if you’re considering. Hitz is able to teach you in a comfortable and relaxed environment whilst giving beneficial constructive criticism on technique and observation to maximise chance of passing. I’ve seen Hitz adapt his teaching style to fit his different learners’ skill set and his unique teaching style covers all the bases of the driving test, as well as skills you will use for life. I passed first time after an intensive course with Hitz, and I truly believe I wouldn’t have been as prepared as I was if it wasn’t for his teaching and support.

“Learning to drive with Rapide has been such a great experience! Matt is a brilliant instructor and, I honestly think, without him I would have taken much longer to pass my test. The motivation, clear personalised advice and friendly environment you get with Rapide Driving school mean that I would recommend it to everyone who is thinking of learning to drive.

I can’t imagine a better instructor. Thank you Rapide for teaching me to drive!”

“I passed my test back in February, and have recently joined Facebook, so thought it would be a good idea to add the review I gave on Google at the time:

Matt is a great instructor who has lots of techniques to make learning to drive less daunting. I lacked confidence to start with, but through regular lessons I was put at ease and given the confidence I needed to make positive progress.

Matt always finds some positives in your driving, and gives constructive feedback to help you move forwards and get to your test in as few lessons as necessary. As a result, I was pleased to find that I passed first time, after only 25 lessons.

The website is a real help in learning some of the more challenging routes, and the lessons are excellent value for money. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Rapide as the Driving School to choose.”

My driving instructor was Hitz!! Best instructor I’ve ever had, couldn’t recommend him enough to other students who want to learn to drive, comfortable, reassuring and easy going. When I lost all confidence Hitz help me gain that back and help me get my pass I wanted. Thank you!

“A great way to learn driving – Matt put me at ease from day one and the feedback at the end of every lesson was incredibly useful in knowing exactly what I needed to improve each time.

The instruction is very friendly and tailored for each leaner, and I’d happily recommend Rapide to anyone learning to drive.”

“Matt is an absolutely brilliant driving instructor. I was so nervous before my first lesson, but he quickly put me at ease, and my lessons covered everything at the perfect pace, so I never felt too far out of my comfort zone but I also always felt that I was being encouraged to push myself to be better each time.

Matt gives you really detailed feedback at the end of each lesson, and also during the lesson, which really helps to direct you in what to focus on to bring your driving up to a really high level.

I could not be happier with my experience of learning to drive, and I would absolutely recommend Matt to anyone. Thank you so much, I honestly never thought I would be able to pass my driving test first time but learning with Rapide made that possible.”
