Great, reliable instructor who’s easy to get along with, got me to pass first time. Thanks Matt
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.
“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.”
Couldn’t agree more with people’s comments below about Matt’s teaching style. So calm and builds your confidence on the road!
“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 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.”
“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.”

I would definitely recommend Matt to anybody, thanks Matt!”
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.
“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 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.”
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.
“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 is an amazing instructor. Doesn’t waste your time or money, plus passed first time with him!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
Hitz was a top instructor, taught me very fast and shown me the way to pass, he’s a very good instructor and id recommend him to anyone!! Cheers hitz mate �
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!
