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.
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!
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!
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.
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
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.
“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!”
“Hitz is an amazing instructor. Doesn’t waste your time or money, plus passed first time with him!”
“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.”
“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 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.”
“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.”
Amazing instructor that makes it easy and comfortable. Highly recommend
“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 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!”
“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 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!”
“Can’t thank matt enough for teaching me how to drive, would highly recommend to others.”
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!
Hitz was an amazing instructor! Very patient, well-experienced and welcoming. Could recommed him to anyone.

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.”
Couldn’t agree more with people’s comments below about Matt’s teaching style. So calm and builds your confidence on the road!

“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.”
“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.”
