Customer Reviews Aron Chatta
2 I chose top class driving school because friends and family have used them in the past and have passed. I was completely pleased with the company. My instructor was patient with me and only recommended I take my test when he felt I was ready. Then when I did take it, I passed first time. Really getting your money’s worth with this company.
Customer Reviews Aimee Mcintyre

LOL, he is also patient, easy to talk to, and made me feel quite at ease whilst I was driving. I highly recommend this driving school to anyone, it was a great experience!!” Thanks Tim.

Matt has been a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor for the last fourteen years and has taught in both manual and automatic cars.
He enjoys working with a variety of pupils, from those who are total beginners who are very nervous and those who just need to take refresher lessons. Matt is very patient, understanding and cares greatly for the well being of each pupil so much so that he will always explain in detail the different requirements relating to passing the driving test. He is punctual and will go out of his way to meet the pupil’s needs wherever possible. He is also Pass Plus registered with the DVSA.
Being punctual to driving lessons can be a big factor when one has a busy schedule. I can not think of one occasion when Mathew was even a second late! I had been through two driving instructors all of which did not give me what I wanted out of driving and more importantly the instructor that was going to get me driving on the road safely! Mathew provided excellent instruction to me, making sure I understood procedures before undertaking them. I wasn’t just taught to ‘pass my test’ I was taught how to read the road, what factors can affect driving, what actions do I need to take to correct certain situations. All of which I did not get from two previous driving instructors. Matthew goes the extra mile to assist the learner and not ‘just get them through their test’. Mathew gets a full and complete recommendation from me of the highest regard and I’ll continue to recommend Matthew to my friends and colleagues. I enjoyed learning with Matthew to such an extent that I’ll be in contact fairly soon to book the Pass Plus. To which, I am looking forward to. I cannot recommend Mathew enough as an influential driving instructor who not only teaches one to drive, but to drive safely.”
Customer Reviews Craig Tyler
I took my driving lessons with your instructor Mat Paton would like to say Brilliant Instructor with good instructions. Always noticed when I did something wrong and corrected me. Taught me very well and helped me overcome all my bad habits that I picked up from my last instructor. If I do the Pass Plus Scheme, I will be back in contact to do this with Top Class via Matt, if possible. Would like to say thank you for teaching me to drive and keep up the good work

Customer Reviews Rosalind Kelly
“I took my driving lessons with Topclass driving school and passed my driving test first and my driving instructor was TJ. Possibly the most caring driving instructor you could ever come across, He actually wants you to pass when you are ready. TJ was very easy to talk to and I always felt very comfortable when doing my driving lessons, not scared or worried at all. Best thing you can do is book your driving lessons with TJ from Topclass. Gonna miss our weekly chats!’ Many thanks again TJ, you were brilliant! Driving has changed everything for me now.”
Customer Reviews Katherine Kelly
“TJ is an absolutely AMAZING instructor, I had decided to take lessons with him after my sister had learnt and passed first time with him and was saying how great he was. He always stays calm and has a really great way of explaining things in the most simple way and most improbably never gets frustrated when you make mistakes. I wouldn’t have passed without him! Highly recommend using him as an instructor as he gives you honest and actionable advice. Thank you so much for your time TJ!”
