Driving School in Chesterfield, Derbyshire Matt Spriggs, MDS Driver Training

Hi I'm Matt. I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), and am passionate about road safety.

I became a driving instructor because I wanted a job with real satisfaction. I also want to contribute not only to helping drivers pass their driving test but become safe drivers for life. My friends and work colleagues have always told me my calm nature would be well suited to being a Driving Instructor. I've been trained in the latest adult training and coaching techniques, so you can be assured the training I give will be of the highest standard. A Client Centred System allows for flexibility in lessons so that you learn to drive safely at a rate that suits you, making each lesson as enjoyable and productive as possible.

I was brought up in Newbold and later Wingerworth, before moving south for a full career as a Military Musician in the Corps of Army Music. During this time, I had the opportunity to coach other musicians, enabling them to reach their full potential.

My wife and I decided to settle back in Wingerworth with our two daughters, where we regularly explore the wonderful Peak District. Outside of work, my interests include mountain biking, music, reading, and if the British weather allows, touring the countryside on my Triumph Thruxton.

read moreMatt is an amazing instructor, he is very calm, reassuring and easy to understand. The workbook and online videos he provides helped me greatly to understand what I needed to learn before each lesson.
I would highly recommend Matt to anyone.

read moreMatt is an absolutely unbelievable driving instructor. His teaching methods allowed me to control my own learning pathway throughout the Semi-intensive course and have helped me to not only become a competent driver but a confident one. He always remained calm and provided safe, simple and concise ways to approach any new driving skill. His massive efforts during the course led to me passing my driving test at the first attempt this afternoon and I can't thank him enough. If you're in the Chesterfield area and thinking of learning to drive, I would actively hunt Matt down to be your Driving Instructor. Cheers Matt!

read moreMatt managed to teach me how to drive in 8 short days. The Student Centred System enabled me to direct my own learning and made me feel more confident. Always calm and understanding, Matt allowed me to structure my lessons how I wanted, whilst also ensuring I was confident in every aspect of driving in time for the test. Very easy to talk to and a brilliant instructor. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone needing to learn, 10/10

read moreI found Matt a really positive and supportive instructor. The car was very easy to drive and get used to. I chose to direct my own lessons mostly using the student-centred system and thought it was the best way to advance my driving. I would definitely recommend Matt to others.

read moreMatt is a fantastic instructor. He is really calm and makes you feel at ease.
We had lots of laughs along the way and what you learn each lesson is determined by you rather than sticking to the syllabus step by step.
I highly recommend MDS Driver Training for anyone that is wanting to learn to drive.
Thank you for helping me and getting me through my test

read moreMatt is an amazing driving instructor, even though I was a nervous learner, due to being an older learner, he helped me feel at ease, and pass with 5 minors.
Matt is now teaching my son, as I trust him wholeheartedly.

read moreMatt has been a fabulous instructor all the way through my driving experience. He is incredibly patient, professional yet friendly and always goes the extra mile. Cant thank him enough for all hes done to help me pass my test, I would 100% recommend him.
Poppy Hanauer
read moreMatt is a brilliant instructor! Despite being very nervous about my first time behind the wheel, he is always so calm and friendly, which made me feel much better. The lesson structure is super easy to follow but he always lets you decide which topics you feel most comfortable covering first. Plus, I always come away from every lesson feeling like I've achieved more than I thought I could! I would definitely recommend Matt to any learner driver out there!
