"I sat my first restricted test yesterday afternoon and I'm pleased to write to you that I officially passed. I couldn't have succeeded without Matthew's help. Matthew is an excellent driving instructor. He taught me simple, safe teachings and he articulated all of my mistakes made, minor or major. He also taught me advanced driving skills in simple methods, like parallel parking and 3-point turns. He also conducted mock restricted test three times and he provided me clear constructive feedbacks per mock test. He's not just a verbal instructor; he brings his iPad whenever he needed to provide visual explanations! I got my first learners license in 2018. But due to my poor experience with an AA driving instructor*, I was left with vehophobia and took 2-years break from driving, as a consequence (almost had a car crash at Takapuna, due to a dangerous left steering method taught by an AA driving instructor!!!). After realizing I need to get drivers license as possible last year for personal reasons, like job application and flexible transport, I decided to take driving lessons from scratch. Even if I had a bit of vehophobia, Matthew gave me a second chance. He wasn't concerned about my background, but for brighter future. He's very friendly, open minded and transforms inexperienced drivers like me to experienced safe drivers. If you: are based in North Shore, are inexperienced (or experienced), has taken break from driving, need to work on certain techniques (e.g. parallel parking) and/or need mock driving test before your restricted/full license test, Matthew is your man! Thank you Matthew for everything over the past year!! * I'm not here to denigrate AA driving school; just sharing my experience."

"Can’t rate Matthew highly enough! We booked 3 sessions for our son. The communication was great, each lesson was followed up with written info discussed during the lesson. Our son was pleased and found the lessons very useful. We’d highly recommend Matthew and A1 driving school to anyone. Thanks so so much."

"I just want to give you guys a feedback from a happy customer. I have had my driving lessons with Matthew Campbell and want to tell you a bit more about it.
My driving confidence was taken away from me on my first try, unfortunately, the person “helping” me out wasn’t as patient. It took me 7 years and a lot of courage to try again and learn that this could be the beginning of new adventures, happy memories and the most important, my freedom. After a lot of support from my husband and crazy moves on the road, decided to hire a professional to help me get through the test and perfection my driving. Matthew was amazing, he really help me to get more confident, gave me great tips and thought me new moves!! He was calm, patient, thoughtful and really professional. I’m happy to say I passed my test on my first try, I really used everything and every tip he gave me, it worked! Thank you so much Matthew! I hope you can help all the Marina’s out there!
Wish you all the best,
