We started back in October of 2015 when our owner Drew saw a gap in the market and that there was a growing demand for Automatic Driving Lessons out there.
It was becoming something that was no longer a ‘niche.’
His previous Driving School Franchise were unimpressed.
They sneered at him and he was told he would, and we quote “come crawling back in 3 months….”
How wrong they were…..
Don’t you just LOVE IT when someone tells you “it can’t be done?”
It’s something we’ve made part of the very core of what we do here.
When someone says “You can’t drive, “Or you can’t ‘just’ do Automatic…..”
We’re here to prove them very VERY wrong.
Quickly establishing a reputation for excellence Drew was soon inundated with requests for work from primarily word of mouth recommendations, it quickly became too much for him to handle alone so his wife Emma became involved and trained to become a driving instructor.
The rest, is, as is often said, history and here we are, the largest provider of Automatic Driving Tuition in the North East.
We’ve more instructors in Automatic and more passes in Automatic than ANY other driving school in the areas that we operate.
Our heart, soul and passion lie firmly in Automatic as it truly is the future of motoring.
Even if you weigh our individual instructor performance against any other you will see that even on that level, we out perform everyone, so collectively, we are an impressive force of Automatic Pass Specialists.
Automatics are growing in popularity and now other driving schools who used to sneer at us are now copying us, trying to catch up.
DrewMatic don’t use call centres, nor do we employ target driven telesales staff (unlike other schools we could mention) which means you will always talk directly with a DVSA Approved Automatic Driving Instructor and we won’t try and sell you the highest priced product with minimal consultation or little understanding for your needs for maximum profit or commission!!
Nor, (like other schools we could mention again) do we charge our instructors unfair and extortionate franchise fees then threaten them with legal action and take them to court if they ever ask to leave once they realise that they’ve been sold a complete pack of lies!!!
THIS is what sets US apart from all the toxic big name brands and why we believe that you should trust US with YOUR training and development.
If the toxic brands will do that to their instructors, just imagine what they’re willing to do to YOU, you just will not get a good service.
We’re 100% non corporate, but we’re 100% about the personal touch
As we look to the future we hope that our customers continue to choose and trust us over the bigger name driving schools that are finally being exposed as the types of people that they are.
