What a wonderful driving teacher Simon is! He is very very patient. His method of teaching is quite effective and a small booklet you receive from the beginning of the course is useful too. Simon assesses your weakness and help you work to improve it. He is also not a kind of teacher that will push you to take more lessons than necessary. Honestly you can't go wrong with him. Highly recommended!

Simon is very professional. Always on time and very polite. That's about Simon what I observed. Amount his driving class,. I rate it very high. Simon is very clear with instructions, he makes you practice some situations multiple times until you are comfortable and he always motivates. He explains your mistakes in a good way. More over he is very professional, if he feels you are doing good he completes the training fast. Simon thankyou again it was a pleasure learning from you.

Simon is a great driving instructor. He was patient, calm and gave me all the right pieces of information/tips to help me drive better. His suggests what could have been done better, points out the mistake and identifies tips to avoid mistakes happening again. He is usually flexible in pick up and drop off points and is very much accessible though WhatsApp for any questions. Thanks Simon

Definitely the best instructor for driving in Zurich region. Simon is extremely patient while teaching, always accommodative and giving small details to make the driving smooth and perfect. His teaching goes a long way into perfecting small nuances and skills of driving. This is added benefit along with teaching all important points to clear the test too. Anyone looking for driving instructor, I highly recommend Simon.

Highly recommended!

Simon is very competent in all aspects of vehicle dynamics. The technique of Simon to teach driving is very different and it helps new drivers. One of his best technique is, he gives you small printed pics of rules or process e.g how to take the reverse, proper alignment of vehicle, steps to follow while doing reverse & parallel parking. These pics helps you to remember and recollect even when you are not driving. He gives you the correct assessment of your driving skills and does not unnecessary push you for the extra lessons. His driving schedule is very flexible and he can be available till late evening. I highly recommend him.

First of all, I would like to thank Simon Schmid for his excellent guidance which is the key for my success to pass the driving test. Simon is a very professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field. On top of that, he is very calm, friendly, encouraging and approachable person. All these qualities make him the best instructor. He is very much aware of the exam procedure, rules & regulations and things need special attentions during the exam. He observes all the minor mistakes during the training and guide you accordingly. He listens all the questions (from the students during training/driving) carefully and clarify all of them. He makes sure that the students are comfortable and confident before going to the exam. I highly recommend him to anyone - the learner or the conversion. PS - Last but not the least, his ever smiley face is a bonus to all his students. :-)

Date: 08.08.2019

The driving instructor Simon is very professional and quiet during the driving lessons. He is very creative in explaining rules and makes learning very interesting. I will definitely remember his tips and use them frequently in my everyday life. I definitely recommend Simon as a driving instructor!

Simon is a great driving instructor, he has prepared me super for the exam so that I passed the first time and had a good feeling about it. Can only recommend him :)

Date: 02.07.2019

I passed my conversion test today. I knew how to drive from before but the lessons with Simon were essential to learn about the crucial details necessary to pass the exam in Zurich. Simon was extremely helpful in the lectures and for the exam preparation. He gave really good tips for the exam and well prioritized the points I had to pay attention to. I do not speak German, I can understand very basics. That did not cause any problems. The practice sessions with Simon were in English and. while the exam is in German, Simon makes sure that you get familiar with all the commands and conversations that might go between you and the examiner. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an instructor to pass the conversion test.

Reviews from Amit Kapur

Simon was an excellent instructor and a great person to get along with it. I really enjoyed learning with him. A very good instructor, Simon not only helps you learn but also encourages you. Especially before a test, he helps you calm yourself and focus on the goal. He was also very good in accommodating my preferences, and yes, always with a smile!!! I must also add that he is very busy and that, for me, is already an indication of how good he is. I have my full recommendation for the soft spoken and high quality instructor Simon Schmid. 10 / 10 for him!!! Thank you Simon. Your support, help, encouragement and great attitude are very much appreciated. Best wishes! Amit

Simon is a very patient, understanding and competent driving instructor. The lessons were very pleasant and I quickly felt safe on the road. I also always got tips and tricks in the respective situations, some of which I received on small cards for reading. Since I could not visit all the VKU's in one week, because of my job, I was allowed to catch up on other days, which I found top! I can really recommend the driving school to everyone, especially those with flexible working hours and those who want to learn to drive without stress and pressure.

Simon is a super cool driving instructor. I was always looking forward to the lesson. His prices are fair and he knows exactly how much to trust the student. I felt comfortable because he talks to you and you don't have the feeling of mass processing but personal and individual care. I greatly appreciated his explanations and leaflets and was thus able to prepare myself well for the exam. I can only recommend him to everyone, again and again gladly!!!

A better driving instructor than Simon will be very difficult to find. He is an open and cordial person with a lot of humor. He takes the time you need and challenges you in your weaknesses and strengths. If the performance is right, you can get very fast forward with him as a driving instructor. In addition, it is very flexible and uncomplicated. His emergency helper and the VKU course are also exciting and innovative. I can only recommend Simon!
