Here’s what our customers have to say about us…
“I honestly had a random pick with this driving school. I already had driving lessons prior with another driving school when I was younger however I was not able to click with them. I didn't feel comfortable at all with them. I was expecting to be rusty however my driving instructor was quick to pick up at where I was and lead from there, unlike others I actually enjoyed learning to drive with the person I had and it made me want to pass my driving test.”
“Passed 1st Time / Zero Faults!
I first noticed Go2 Driving School due to their excellent reviews and pass rates. From my very first lesson with my driving instructor (Martin), I knew that my decision to choose this driving school was the correct one. Martin’s calm and relaxed manner instantly put me at ease and enabled me pick every detail up easily and effectively. The service provided exceeded all of my expectations, and the flexible, friendly and advanced tuition provided me with the confidence to complete my driving test and obtain the result which I had previously thought impossible. I would recommend this driving school, and Martin in the local area, to anybody seeking the best tuition available on the market, especially those who have minimal experience and are nervous about the prospect of driving. ”
“Matt has a lot of experience as a driving instructor. He is patient and has a lot of useful tips for all his students. His YouTube channel has a lot of visual aid that will help any type of driver; from beginner's to advanced level. His car is also an enjoyable ride. Best instructor in Derby by far.”

“I started learning to drive with Go2 Driving School with zero experience and thanks to my driving instructor (Martin), I picked everything up really quickly and soon found my confidence with driving. Now I've gained more experience Martin guides me on the more busy and complex roads to ensure I have all the skills needed for a lifetime of safe driving. I was very nervous on my first driving lesson but he soon helped me to relax with his friendly and approachable attitude and his clear instructions. I can't recommend him enough!”
“Matthew Durrant, as reflected in the professionalism and quality of his driving tuition at Go2 Driving School, is a highly committed and driven instructor. Himself and his school offers some of the best learner driving tuition not just in Derby, or even in the county, but arguably in the East Midlands and nationwide.
For me, I didn't just choose Matt after reading all the 5-star reviews online, but I truly did so after actually meeting him and witnessing his sheer commitment, enthusiasm and raw passion for the job myself. In Matt I saw a budding entrepreneur, keen to deliver the high quality, grade A tuition with which he did for me so effectively. After training with him for a mere few sessions, I found myself developing as a driver faster than I ever thought possible, especially compared to my development with my previous instructor who offered a competitive price but an unfortunate and typical low quality of tuition.
The methods of tuition Matt offers are far more advanced than any other driving school I know of, with his pupils able to perform specific, target based driving lessons, realistic mock driving tests, experience filling up at the petrol station and visiting drive-thru restaurants amongst other things, with students even able to record lessons to review later on YouTube to further improve the quality of their driving! Matt really is at the head of the industry and continues to deliver the most cost-effective, high quality tuition for learners out there.
I would strongly recommend that anybody, whether starting out learning to drive or fed up with their instructor due to a lack of progress, train with Matthew Durrant and his Go2 Driving School.
Many thanks for your service Matt, it was a pleasure learning with you and I hope this reviews leads many more to seek the high-standard tuition that you offer, especially when seeing how much it has benefited my life so far through the freedom to drive and do so safely. ”
“Matt was understanding of my nerves and managed to help me break out of bad habits i had developed from a previous driving instructor 3 years before. My driving instructor was patient and clear with his coaching which meant I could really improve my driving at a pace i was happy with. I would recommend Go2 Driving School to anyone as the difference was lessons aren't to just get you to pass the test they are to teach you to drive confidently and safely. Go2 driving is a great option if you have had a negative experience with a previous instructor, I wish I had known and started driving with Matt much earlier.”
“My driving instructor at Go2 (Matt) is a competent instructor who can explain driving procedures in a better way to understand what and why we do things (like safety checks) the way we do them and he also has lot of patience and passion to teach. Driving lessons with him are very interactive in nature so they enable us to reflect and think our driving habits which results in fast and effective progress on our learning curve. Before going in to any process or practice he explains the technicality of the subject which establishes a base so there is very little chance to forget stuff and I feel his teaching methods are customised to suit student’s thinking process and personality to enhance his driving skills.”
“I feel as though it was important to find a driving instructor that worked for me, Matt from Go2 Driving school was an absolute pleasure to work with, he always worked hard to fit my driving lessons in and went out of his way to book time slots that worked for me. Due to the fact that I work it was important to find a driving instructor who could work later than 5 o'clock. Learning to drive has definitely been an interesting roller-coaster of an experience, and I feel as though I now have the experience to drive safely. Matt had some fantastic methods and techniques when it comes to manoeuvres and general driving which was really useful. I would definitely recommend Go2 Driving School due to the fantastic service provided.”
“Compared to my previous driving school I feel like I have been getting better teaching and in much more detail. My driving instructor's teaching methods gave me exactly what I needed and helped me pass my practical driving test first time. Go2 Driving School also have a YouTube channel which helped me a lot with my driving and as a result, I've gone and passed today with only 2 faults.”
“My instructor helped me become a better driver because he explained things properly. My driving lessons were never dull and for me, we just clicked immediately and had plenty of laughs along the way. I passed thanks to Matt, He’s really passionate about what he does and it was a real pleasure learning with him. So if you're looking for an instructor I can honestly say 100% go with Go2 Driving School you won’t regret it.”
“The main reason for choosing Go2 Driving School was a recommendation from a prior student, who recommended the driving school highly. Another important factor for choosing a driver instructor is having someone who teaches skills and expertise, past those required for the driving test itself. Learning with my driving instructor was much more relaxed than expected, if I made a mistake, why it occurred and how to prevent this from happening again was calmly explained for me. The instructor was incredibly thorough when explaining driving techniques and knowledge, which allowed for quick progress to be made. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent driving instructor, as the experience and knowledge I have required throughout the course of the training has been invaluable.”
“The most important factor of choosing a driving school was that I was looking out for a driving instructor that sets out positive learning and has structured lessons that would help me to pass my driving test first time. I passed my first test today with just 3 driving faults. Learning to drive with this school was much more relaxed and friendly than expected but the learning was still very well detailed. I would definitely recommend this driving school because it gives a positive learning environment and it sets you up for a positive driving experience after the test.”
“A read through some of Go2's customer reviews was enough to reassure me of this. The fact that they are priced slightly above most driving schools is reassuring because as with most things you get what you pay for and I can honestly say that this is the case with Go2 (buy cheap, pay twice!) Learning to drive is now progressing much faster for me and I never feel any time is wasted. My instructors teaching methods are that bit different as he teaches you to understand the reasons behind different processes rather than just giving you rules to memorise.”
“ I was told to book my practical driving test by another driving instructor but I didn't feel ready, For this reason I transferred to Go2 and I felt I learned so much in a couple of driving lessons than I did in ten previous lessons. ”
Nathan O' Hara
“The most important thing for me when choosing a driving school was instructors having a high first time pass rate. Also that they could be flexible with lesson times as well as being calm and listen to the students thoughts along with giving some of their driving experience. Other important factors for me were reading customer reviews and what information I could find via websites and social media. Also the price, I would rather pay for quality over quantity of lesson. When learning to drive I expected there to be a lot on my plate from the off, however Go2 Driving School teaches you in bite size pieces and then brings it together as you develop the key skills, not only to pass first time but to be used throughout life.This is done by having an objective and always working to it throughout the driving lessons.”
“When looking for a driving lessons the most important aspect for me first was credibility. Also I was looking for someone who was a great teacher, positive reviews, availability and reasonable prices. After searching online for weeks to find one of them cheapest so-called quick pass driving schools/crash courses I noticed lots of poor reviews and was warned to stay clear. I made the best choice! I gave up then instead I decided to start looking for a real driving school that had consistent positive reviews, a great teacher/instructor and prices that reflected that, which led me here to Matt at Go2 Driving School and I'm honestly glad it did.”
“My main reason for choosing GO2 driving school was because they offered the flexibility I required for my lessons as a student, which other companies weren't able to offer. My instructors teaching methods were effective and thorough, for example they used a number of helpful diagrams to help me get rid of my fear of bay parking.”
“The main reason for choosing Go2 Driving School is that I was looking for positive reviews and pass rates and I thought that Go2 Driving School was very professionally constructed. My driving instructor made it very easy and simple to book driving lessons as well as being very quick to let me know with slots that were free.”
“ His teaching technique is second to none, he knew how to get the best out of me and explained things clearly and effectively. You do pay a little more for his driving lessons but he is worth every penny. I definitely recommend Go2 Driving School, I wouldn't send anyone anywhere else!”
“ Nothing seems rushed or like I'm under too much pressure so it's a great learning environment to be in.
I think the teaching methods used have helped me make progress quicker than expected and I know at the end of each lesson what I need to work on next lesson. I would definitely recommend Go2 Driving School to everyone. ”
“When looking for a driving instructor it was important to find someone with the ability to focus on problem areas and improve them; improving my skills beyond just passing the driving test. Matt was good driving instructor, easy to understand and communicated well. He gives lots of feed back, has extensive experience and is a good teacher who will work well with anyone. I would recommend Go2 Driving School to anyone learning to drive in Derby.”
“The quality of service I have received has been great and I'd much rather pay that tiny bit extra for much better quality teaching with a really high pass rate, than pay less to receive satisfactory lessons and less understandings of the car and the roads. I'd highly recommend Go2 as the driving school to go to.”
“ I couldn't be any more impressed with my time at Go2 Driving School. The teaching methods were very easy to understand and remember. This along with Matt's patience and confidence in me meant I was driving confidently and safely in no time!.. I would definitely encourage anyone looking to start their lessons to contact Go2 Driving School.”
“I found my driving instructors teaching methods to be helpful in that Matt will be constantly observing your driving to see if there is anything that is needs work and will then follow up with the relevant feedback. I found it to be a really effective way of teaching as it allowed me to be aware of any issues that needed fixing...I would 100% recommend Go2 Driving School! Simply because unlike stories about other driving schools that I have heard from friends and family, Matt teaches at the speed that the learner can handle and doesn't rush them.”
“The main reason I chose Go2 Driving School was I had been taught a few years before and had received a bad experience. When I first met my instructor my first impressions were of a highly professional and very competent driving instructor which he did not disappoint! He had a very calm and confident approach which made me feel comfortable and it ease with learning to drive!”
“The pass rate was unbelievable! They had 14 first time passes in 2016 and I'm now proud to be added to that list...I picked it up fairly quick and was calm throughout - but again, all to the gratitude of Matt. His teaching methods we're spot on, picking up on and helping me to correct my errors so quickly was a major factor to my learning... There wasn't anything that I felt could have been improved. The service that I received was perfect!”
“Positive reviews from other customers regarding safety and competence of driving instructor(s) was a important criteria when initially choosing a driving school. Safety was a number one priority and I wasn’t willing to learn from companies that imply things such as “pass fast” which sounds a bit doubtful. ”
“I would fully recommend Go2 Driving School to anyone learning to drive in Derby as I have enjoyed working with Matt; He has helped me get to a good and safe level of driving and more than anything, developed my understanding as to why I do the safety checks and how important it is. He trains to high standards and sets lesson goals so that you know the area’s that require work and the areas that are good.
Learning to drive was a very different from what I expected; I thought it would be more stressful. Matt gave me confidence within my own ability and in the end it came natural to me. ”
“I would recommend Go2 Driving School to anyone that is just starting out with their driving. I have been with Go2 for the last couple of months and I have come so far. I passed my driving test 1st time with Matt as my instructor, he is very good and explains all the manoeuvers clearly and can show you if you're not that confident. Matt helped with road safety and all things to be aware of. Thanks a lot Matt of Go2 Driving School!!”
“Matt reassured me and gave me confidence. I remember driving in a straight line on my first lesson and thinking I am going to struggle but by the end of the next lesson I was a lot more confident and driving round estates. I honestly believe that is down to Matt having patience and encouraging me. Within a year of passing I have been able to advance my career path because I am not stuck to bus timetables now. ”
Sunny Hill, Derby
“I would definitely recommend Matt of Go2 Driving School as he is very professional and pays a lot of attention to detail, the atmosphere is relaxed, which is crucial for a successful learning process. Matt tailors his service to you as an individual giving you many options to choose from, creating a bespoke service. At the beginning of every lesson you will have a recap on what you did in the previous lesson and on what you will be doing in your current lesson. At the end of the lesson you will have a plan of action, this includes a discussion of your strengths, the things that you need to improve on and targets for the next lesson.”
“I cannot recommend Go2 Driving school enough, you will not be disappointed...I have just passed my driving test, first time and with only 2 minors. This is entirely down to the excellent tuition I received from Matthew. I have had three other instructors in the past, which were all bad experiences and meant I made very little progress and lost confidence as a result.”
“I wanted a reliable instructor that knew his stuff and was easy to be chatty with as I feel a lot more confident when I have someone next to me that I can get along with...My instructor is extremely clear with his explanations and instructions and always gives me multiple options to make the driving experience the best for me as well as testing me on the way...I would 100% recommend this driving school.”
“I made the best choice of my life and went with Matt at Go2 Driving School he is so patient with you and gives you consecutive feedback on what you do wrong and he had a booklet which makes things like multi lane roundabouts seem easy... I have literally just gone and passed my test with 3 minors and I can't thank Matt enough. If you're reading this please pick Go2 Driving School, it will honestly be one of those choices that you make and will never regret! Thank you so much Go2 Driving School.”
“I've had a few instructors but didn't get anywhere with them, as soon as I had Matt as my instructor everything changed, doesn't push, takes things at your pace and teaches in the best way possible, best instructor I've had and would definitely recommend him to anyone that wants brilliant tuition!! Thankyou Go2 Driving School!”
“Having had some very bad instruction previously, I was recommended to Go2 by a friend who had just passed first time under his instruction. I have got to say, Matt was brilliant, we took everything back to basics. He has a great way of simplifying everything and making it easier to understand. His mantra of teaching safe driving is put at the heart of everything. Thanks to him, I am finally on the road, I would recommend him to anyone!”
“I passed my test with Go2 Driving School and after having many annoying and uncomfortable instructors. I always had a fear of actually controlling a car but Matt was a dream. He made it simple and had a lot of patience and time for me. I passed my theory first time and also passed my test first time. So, thank you Matt I highly recommend you!
“I started learning to drive with a different driving school that just wasn't reliable and I had to change my test date twice due to them booking two for the same day/time. I was very disillusioned with the whole thing and then a friend who had passed with Go2 Driving School recommend them to me. I would highly recommend Matt. In no time at all I had passed my test. He is punctual and has a excellent way of teaching you to drive. I would highly recommend Go2 Driving School to anyone who wants to learn to drive.”
“When searching for a driving school, my aim was to find a driving instructor that I wasn't afraid to be around and who made me feel comfortable. It was important to find someone who could get the job done and allow me to progress.
Learning to drive wasn't as scary as I expected and was a lot easier than I had imagined.
My driving instructors teaching methods and techniques were very useful and easy to take on board. I always felt like I knew what I was doing because of this.”
“The advice would I would give to others when starting to learn to drive is that price is not the most important reason for choosing a driving school...learning to drive with Go2 Driving School has been great, and has exceeded the high expectations I had after reading many other positive reviews.
Compared to previous schools my instructor is much more focused, he explains things clearly in a step by step manner that is easy to follow. He plans lessons around my strengths, and areas for development, and I’m making much faster progress as a result.”
“I didn’t feel uncomfortable or rushed to start driving and things were explained to me very well as it was my first time driving a car and I was very pleased with the outcome...
The instructor was very clear on what he was teaching, he explained it to me in a way I understood, he made me feel comfortable when asking questions. They were answered very clearly so I could understand...everything was clearly explained and I'm very happy about learning to drive with Go2.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and cant wait for my second lesson next week...my instructor was brilliant at explaining how and why we follow through with procedures and always asked questions to get you thinking, which I found very helpful. He remained calm and was always ready to prompt me on anything I needed help with... I never thought I'd be driving down a road and changing gears in my first lesson, but I definitely feel much more confident and happy about driving...”
“From the very start of my driving experience with Matt, I was very comfortable with him, and thought his teaching methods were spot on. Laid back enough to be friendly, and always made sure I knew what I was doing, and gave praise and criticism where needed. Thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Go2 driving school, massive thanks, recommended a good few times to friends and family!”
“When I first met Matt from Go2 driving School my first impressions were of a professional and highly competent instructor and this impression did not change throughout the period of my training with him.
Matt teaches driving as a life skill, not just to pass the test as other instructors I have encountered do. He emphasises good technique and safety; he is calm and approachable with a reassuring manner. I would highly recommend learning to drive with him. ”
“I have undertaken 5 driving tests under previous instructors...I needed clear guidance and instruction on my weaknesses as well as reassurance that I was driving correctly. I also needed a driving instructor who could address my nerves, build my confidence and help me overcome these whilst improving my techniques...
When searching for a driving school READ THE REVIEWS! Don’t just go on what others say you need to find a driving instructor who suits your abilities as well as your personality.
I would highly recommend Go2 to any other learner driver, whether they’re completely new to driving (so they can learn the right way first time) or whether they are like me and struggle to pass a test or have been "messed around" by other instructors”
“My first driving lesson went extremely well. I was expecting it to the be quite boring and all the road sense side of learning. The lesson quickly became a practical with a lot of driving and guidance...
The driving instructor adapted the lesson for my learning pattern. He quickly sussed out that a I was a quick learner and had to think on his feet and change the lesson so that I was learning something that would not be tedious...I never felt rushed at any moment...
The service I've received is second to none, just brilliant!!”

I always looked forward to my lessons. I enjoy driving a lot and it's probably due to the fact my lessons went so well. I enjoyed the level of organisation.”
“I decided to change driving schools as I felt that after failing my driving test for a second time that something wasn't right...
When choosing my new driving school I feel the reviews played a big part in choosing Go2. There were many reviews and lots of recent test passes. This gave me an insight as to how Matt teaches which I felt that I was lacking with my previous instructor...
I can't think of any way that Go2 Driving School could improve their services as yet. My first driving lesson with Matt was one of the best driving lessons I've had.”

Long Eaton, Derbyshire
“Matt is a very good driving instructor and would allow me to take as much time as I felt I needed when learning the manoeuvres. He'd also ask me at the beginning of each lesson if I wanted to do anything specific that day so he could fit it in with whatever he had planned.
I felt at ease during my lessons and never felt pressurised to move on to the next step until I was happy with my progress. Matt would fit me around his schedule and would allow me to plan around my schedule also. Matt's a great instructor and I'd recommend him and Go2 Driving School to everyone I know who's willing to learn how to drive. Thanks for everything!”
“Go2 Driving School provided an exceptional service, Matt made me feel confident behind the wheel. I learnt effective and safe techniques. Matt and myself discussed all aspects involved with driving, from safety to maintenance and legalities. Fantastic and friendly service, would highly recommend!”
