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!

“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 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.”

“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.”

“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!”

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.

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

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.

Instructor: Matt

“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!”
