“Matt was a brilliant instructor. He was highly reliable and a very friendly person, who put me at ease with my driving, despite me lacking confidence and self-belief.

I passed on my first attempt, with only getting one minor. His teaching style is great and I would recommend him to anyone beginning driving. Thanks for everything Matt.”

So pleased with Rapide. I’d had three instructors before I had lessons with Hitz and they were pitched just right for me. Am pleased to have passed my driving test today. Would definitely recommend.

I couldnt be any more thankful to Matt than i already am! From the very beginning of my driving lessons he has always put me at ease and made me believe i had what it took to take my test. From my very first time behind the wheel right up to my test he believed in me and made me believe in myself! He had such a professional approach to learning me to drive but also a calming/friendly manner. I would 110% recommend Matt (Rapide Driving School) and im so glad i chose you to start my journey with. Thank you

“We’ve had some great teaching with more than plenty of patience from Matt at Rapide.

He’s been very flexible with lesson times and the odd last minute change we’ve had to make. I know at times we’ve not been the easiest customer to deal with but he has catered for everything we needed/requested.

Nice one mate, cheers.”

“Matt was brilliant, I was unsure about driving to begin with but he helped me with my confidence and helped me gain all the skills I needed to pass first time – the same as all my friends who also learnt with Rapide Driving School.”

“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!”

“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!

“Superb instructor! From start to finish Matt has been brilliant. I was very nervous about driving but Matt found a way to settle my nerves, focusing on you as an individual with goals set after each lesson to bring the best out in you as a safe driver.

The driving methods implemented were very good and I liked the simplicity in which Matt would explain everything to me perfectly. My level of concentration needed to improve, Matt helped me to to do this and become a better driver. Lesson by lesson Matt would motivate me with wise words – he’s more than a driving instructor and goes above and beyond his duties.

It’s much more on a personal level I feel I have made a friend. I thank you for pushing me and working hard with me to make me pass my driving test.

Best driving instructor around!”
