Great instructors, had Matt for the duration who was excellent throughout, despite failing first time he didnt lose interest and saw me through passing second time. can't recommend them enough!

Christopher Edwards

Great school. I have taken the three day c1 d1 training course and passed the d1 yesturday with two minors and c1 today with one minor. The instructors i had, Matt and Dan were great, friendly and got me through both tests. If u need these on your licence i would definately recommend HSM. You do lots of driving and practice all the test route areas and go to the tests feeling confident. Thank you both again.

Billy Stanley

Passed both c1 and d1 first time due to the excellent instructors. Both Matt and Dan made me feel very relaxed throughout the course. As it's a family run company they actually care about you and want you to succeed. Highly recommend using them.

Brilliant couple of days training with Matt. He broke everything down, making it really straightforward and relaxed, and made sure I was ready to pass my b+e first time. Would recommend to anyone, great process from start to finish. Thank you!

Gemma Major

Matt was a fantastic instructor, he made me feel much more relaxed and confident, helping me to pass first time.

William Bacon

Matt and Roy were both fantastic instructors, they both turned what has the potential to be a very stressful experience into a fun and relaxed experience whilst remaining highly professional and instructive at the same time. Thanks guys! I would recommend them to anybody.

Braço Forte Mão Amiga

I trained with HSM driver training. What a great bunch of guys! Dan, Roy and Matt were superb. From the first contact I had with them, asking questions about price and conditions, to the condition of the vehicles and the super quality of the training they provided me with, meant I passed both my C1 and D1 cats first time with no problems at all. All thanks to their knowledge, experience and patience in explaining it all. The whole experience was easy and pleasant, from start to finish. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone wishing to pass first time! From a very happy customer!

Christina Birch

I did my B+E towing training and test with HSM and would highly recommend them. I really struggled to get to grips with the reverse manoeuvre. The instructors were so patient and came up with lots of ways to help me get my head round it. Thanks to their hard work I managed to pass my test first time. Thank you HSM!

Remi Goldsmith

I had failed a few tests before with different instructors so had completely given up hope of passing! Then I got Roy as an instructor and he was so patient and had a very relaxed approached to teaching. I was an extremely nervous driver but Roy’s calm teaching manner and sense of humour slowly helped build up my confidence to be a better driver so I was able to pass my test in the end! I would definitely recommend Roy as an instructor!

Nick bailey

Great company, would recommend for anyone who wants to pass first time. ?


Really enjoyed my driving lessons with the harpenden school of motoring. Not only was Matt really friendly but importantly he also gave great driving instruction; he explained things very clearly and was always happy to tailor his approach to help me with any areas which I struggled with. I started lessons at the end of September and just over two months later I'd passed my test first time, with 0 minors, so I really couldn't recommend HSM more highly!

Jack Fellowes-Prynne

I did the 3 day course and passed first time, Matt was a great instructor and very informative.

Scott Marshal

Very professional and booked me in for a test last minute. Well recommended.

James Rowlands

Passed both c1 d1 due to the excellent instrcutors. Both Matt and Dan made me fell very relaxed early on. The company is a family run and it really comes across as they care and want you to succed. Highly recommend them.

Really enjoyable few days with Matt. Felt very well prepared for the test. Very personable, honest and helpful throughout the experience. I would highly recommend HSM to anyone looking to undertake their test.

Jakob Green

I have just finished my 3 days of mini bus training and have passed first time. I had Matt train me over the 3 days and he was excellent. Matt made me feel very relaxed and was very knowledgeable. He took me round all the routes that I could have had on my test so I was familiar with the roads. I would definitely recommend this company.

Benjamin Wolf

I had great input from Roy and Dan during my 3 day C1/D1 course. Really helped me get rid of bad habits, improve my driving and pass first time; would recommend HSM every time. Thanks guys 🙂

Katie Simpkin

I completed my D1 minibus training with Matt over the course of 3 days and he was extremely knowledgeable, honest and helpful. We practiced test routes which was great as I was unfamiliar with the area and it put me more at ease! It was an enjoyable few days learning so I would definitely recommend using HSM driver training. Thanks Matt!

Christian Valente

Just passed my B+E today after a 1.5 day training course and test with very little experience towing, had the pleasure of meeting Dan and Matt on separate days and couldn't fault either of them, both really professional, good teachers and I would highly recommend. Will definitely be sending my misses to do her training with them when she wants to do it.

Richard Jackson

A really good and professional company. I did my bus PSV test with Matt, a really nice guy with a lot of patience. Saw others from the company being taught in HGV and trailer reversing all at their yard. Highly recommended.
