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.
“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.”
“Hitz was a brilliant instructor! He always did his best in teaching me and would tell me what I needed to improve on in order to pass my test. Gave me a comfortable environment in learning to drive that was stress free.
Would definitely recommend family and friends to go with Rapide Driving School. Thank you so much Hitz!”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“Great instructor, very patient and helpful. Explained things clearly and easy to understand. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family.”
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.
Hitz was an amazing instructor! Very patient, well-experienced and welcoming. Could recommed him to anyone.
Passed my practical today (first time with 2 minors!) and I have to hand it to Matt. I had 27 lessons with a previous instructor and thought I wasn’t getting anywhere – Matt was recommended to me and from the first lesson with him I knew he was great. My confidence has come on leaps and bounds! He prepared me really well for my test and having the videos (online) made everything even easier. Highly recommend � thank you so much Matt!
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!
“Brilliant instructor, would definitely recommend to anyone. Passed with Hitz first time with no minors – just proves how good he is!

“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!”
