Matt is an awesome guy and a great instructor. Would definatley recomend matt to learners. Thanks matt for all your help and il see you on the road.
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.
Amazing instructor that makes it easy and comfortable. Highly recommend
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Great instructor, very patient and helpful. Explained things clearly and easy to understand. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family.”
“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 brilliant instructor. He is very friendly which helps makes the lessons more enjoyable and more comfortable. His techniques used during driving were great and really helped me complete the manoeuvres and deal with situations. He helps you build confidence on the road. He has a great resources on his website and what he uses during your lessons and can be used at home, which help you to practise with clear instructions. I highly recommend Matt as he was brilliant and definitely worth learning with.
“Brilliant instructor, would definitely recommend to anyone. Passed with Hitz first time with no minors – just proves how good he is!
Cheers again Hitz.”
“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.
Hitz is best instructor with his help i pass my driving test. He is explain everythink in the way for me to understud. Hi is instructor that i recomend to friends.
“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!”
Matt is a great instructor and helped put me at ease straight-away in the car. Well recommended.
“Having tried to learn to drive on and off for the past 33 years, Matt was the only instructor that had the patience and gave me confidence to carry on and pass my test first time.
I would definitely recommend Matt to anybody, thanks Matt!”
Absolutely brillaint instructor… passed first time, easy to get along with, very good teacher, very calm and collected with great feedback at the end of every lesson! Also a great website to keep learning from even when you’re on your own at home!
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
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!
“Matt is an excellent instructor, he has a lot of patience and was very supportive along with a great sense of humour. Every lesson we had a good laugh as well as learning how to drive!
I never thought I would pass my test in a hundred years but Matt gave me the confidence and I passed! I couldn’t ask for a better instructor and I would highly recommend him. Thank you so much.”
“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 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.
Hitz was a top instructor, taught me very fast and shown me the way to pass, he’s a very good instructor and id recommend him to anyone!! Cheers hitz mate �
“Thank you so much to Matt, he really helped me overcome my nerves and pass my test, he’s a fantastic instructor, always positive and calm, so would highly recommend him if you want to learn to learn to drive and pass your test!”
“I highly recommend Matt as an instructor. He taught me how to drive without any problems, and I thank him a lot for that. Definitely worth learning with.”
I’m so happy with the quality of teaching at Rapide. Matt was patient, supportive and filled me with confidence. He made the lessons fun at the same time as informative, and he went the extra mile to prepare me for every aspect of the test.The lessons were full of variety and were very enjoyable.
Matt, I can’t thank you enough!
Hitz was an amazing instructor! Very patient, well-experienced and welcoming. Could recommed him to anyone.
“Hitz is an amazing instructor. Doesn’t waste your time or money, plus passed first time with him!”
“Matt is an amazing driving instructor, filled me with confidence and was extremely encouraging throughout my learning experience. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone that wants to learn as he is patient and very easy to get along with. He helped me pass in just over six months so give him a ring!”
“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!”
