“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.”

“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!”

“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 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.”

“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!”

“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.”

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

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.
