Welcome to the keys to your freedom
Whether you’re looking to discover your freedom by learning to drive, you’ve recently passed your test and want to improve your skills or you’re a nervous driver who could benefit from a refresher course, Wokingham’s number 1 driving school McDrive has a range of lessons that can support you.
I’m Matt McKay and I founded McDrive driving school and work in partnership with BSM. I qualified as driving instructor in 2017 and I love my job! I’m originally from Bristol, I have lived in Wokingham since 2012 with my wife, daughter and giant fluffy dog, Maggie.
The joy of seeing someone pass their test never gets boring and I get enormous satisfaction sharing the success of a students achievement. Seeing previous student’s driving around town after passing their test, is always a pleasure.
I like my lessons to be relaxed, fun, informative and try to keep things simple.
If you’re worried, nervous, anxious or simply unsure of what to expect or maybe it’s just a question you have, then please do give me call or drop me an email and I’ll be happy to assist with all your future driving requirements
Let’s get driving
Learning to drive is an exciting time but I understand that first step can be a nervous experience. I will personally create a tailor-made plan to give you the skills and confidence to get you through your driving test and beyond.
The vehicle used is a new Peugeot 208 Manual with dual controls.

Motorways can be a daunting place for any driver, I can guide you through the understanding of motorways and give you the confidence to use them with ease. I will ensure you’ll be planning those weekend trips you’ve been putting off in no time!
Matt is an entertaining and good bloke, which made sitting in a car for two hours actually enjoyable. The lessons were very efficient; I was ready to take my test not long after starting. If you are looking for someone with a calm demeanour, good conversation, and efficient approach- Matt is your man.

Matt is a fantastic driving instructor! I found him to be very supportive, friendly and patient, providing clear explanations about road situations, and providing useful tips to help me work on the areas I found challenging. I liked the way he tried to simplify the concepts as much as possible, encouraging me to focus on one activity at a time whenever this was practical, and emphasising the importance of advance planning - such as before roundabouts and busy junctions. This fitted in well with my style of learning. Sometimes he would carefully introduce me to situations or locations that were more challenging than anything I would encounter in my test, boosting my confidence and building up my "real world" driving experience. Lessons were held in a modern and easy-to-drive car in the same convenient evening time slot each week, thus helping me to plan accordingly, and ensuring that I stayed in practice. He was easy to get hold of if I needed to contact him at other times.

My son, Thomas, took driving lessons with Matt and helped him a lot! After being with other instructors who he did not feel comfortable with, Matt aided him to gain his confidence and enjoy driving. Recently, he passed his driving test 1st time with only 1 minor and he couldn't have done it without Matt's calm and supportive demeanour. Thank you so much and we wish you the best for the future.
