“Can’t thank matt enough for teaching me how to drive, would highly recommend to others.”
“Hitz is an amazing instructor. Doesn’t waste your time or money, plus passed first time with him!”
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.
“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!”
“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 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.”
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.
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.
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!
“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 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.”
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!
“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.”
“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.”
“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 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 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
Couldn’t agree more with people’s comments below about Matt’s teaching style. So calm and builds your confidence on the road!
“Matt is an excellent instructor. He really gave me a confidence boost and enabled me to keep my nerves as ease.
Also I passed my test with him first time. Thank you Matt!”
Hitz was a great instructor and would recommend over anyone else. Knowledagable, flexible, all you need to get your hands on that certificate! Good job.
Amazing instructor that makes it easy and comfortable. Highly recommend
“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!”
“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.”
“Great instructor, very patient and helpful. Explained things clearly and easy to understand. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family.”
“Thanks to Hitz I passed my test first time with only four faults – over the moon.
Would advise anyone who is thinking of learning to drive… Forget the rest and use the best! Thanks again Hitz!”
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!”
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.
Matt is a great instructor and helped put me at ease straight-away in the car. Well recommended.
“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!”
