Simon Mottram

Covering Pembrokeshire & Cardigan


Hi, I’m Simon

I’m the owner and founder of Fast-Track Driving School, one of the biggest Driving Schools in West Wales !

It covers Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Cardigan and Llanelli as well as the Under17s Drivers Experience at Carew Airfield !

I established Fast-Track Driving School in 2008 after training as Driving Instructor in 2004.

Before becoming an Instructor I served in HM Armed Forces. My time in the Army taught me the importance of "Team Work" and never giving up on what you believe is the 'impossible'.

Fast-Track is a family run Triple Award Winning Driving School which I operate alongside my wife Angela who is behind the scenes doing all the bookings, and administration and also my daughter Abbie who works on all our social media accounts

I’m very passionate about road safety and have trained 100’s of Students and also many Instructors over the years to try and ensure that our roads remain as safe as possible in Pembrokeshire and the surrounding area

My lessons are tailor made to the Students needs and very much centred around them.

I consider myself to have a totally chilled and welcoming nature and my training techniques are quite simply easy and rememberable

I mainly cover Haverfordwest and the surrounding area


Here are just some of the lovely reviews from my previous Students....

A huge thank you to the best driving instructor ever!! Simon!! I have no words, from not knowing how to drive to passing my test with having 4 weeks of driving is just incredible!! Would 110% recommend the fast track team!! What an amazing experience! Thank you so much Simon!

Well, what can I say about Fast-Track? Driving with Simon over the past 8 weeks has been a phenomenal experience. From the very first lesson I was a shaky, nervous wreck and the thought of 'driving a car' seemed like a dream I would never fulfil.
'The bus doesn't cost that much, right?' I would think to myself, BUT...
With every lesson we took, my confidence grew just that little bit more. Simon always gave the best reference points for performing manoeuvres and always gave the reasons why. Towards the later stages, we did 'Destination Day', a realistic approach to driving as if it were like any other day. It worked wonders in terms of picking up road signs/markings.
By the time we got to test day (this morning actually!) I was ready. Sure, when the examiner turned up, I felt this drop in the pit of my stomach but this was good! I cared about it and I was prepared to undergo this 'rite of passage'.
I am very very very happy to say that I passed first time and it's all thanks to the sublime quality of teaching from Fast-Track and Simon himself.
I cannot praise these guys enough
Need to get on the road quick?
Fast-Track it!

Passed my driving test first time this morning with Simon & I can't recommend him enough. As someone who's struggled on & off with driving lessons for years because of anxiety I went with Fast Track driving school on the recommendation of a friend & Simon instantly put me at ease with his calm & easy going approach & built my confidence up more & more each lesson. I went from panicking with every mistake I made to being able to calmly deal with any situation & I couldn't have done it without him. Massive thank you, see you on the road


Caitlin Morgan

Melissa Pollock

I would recommend Fast-Track to anyone, I went from the under 17’s programme to passing my driving test in a matter of months.

I learnt to drive with Simon Mottram and I can’t thank him enough for all of his help, he helped me gain so much confidence on the road and always made me feel comfortable.

Nicola Harvey....

Without a doubt an excellent driving school. A huge thank you to my instructor Simon Mottram for helping me pass my test yesterday I cannot recommend Fast-track enough.
You get what you pay for and this school is First Class.
Each lesson was confidence building & Calm. I felt at ease, also enjoyable, you actually looked forward to each lesson. After years of bad choice driving instructors I genuinely gave up until somebody recommended Fast-Track. One last time I thought and Gosh I'm so glad that I did.
To Simon and all at Fast-Track team.. Thank you x


Taylor Trueman....

Would 100% recommend Fast-Track Driving School for a reliable, flexible and professional service. Simon was absolutely fantastic with me whilst I was learning to drive, was very patient and friendly. I passed my test first time with no faults thanks to this! Amazing driving school with fab instructors!


Ami John....

Passed first time after learning with Simon Mottram. He’s an incredible instructor, I wouldn’t have wanted to learn with anyone else. I have major anxiety and always doubt myself, but Simon always stayed calm and positive which put me at ease straight away. His professionalism whilst still being funny and friendly made it feel like I not only had an instructor next to me but a friend which honestly helped to calm my nerves massively. I could not recommend Fast-Track enough, it’s honestly the best driving school around. A massive thank you for helping a dream come true!!


Deej Javii....

Fast track driving school are absolutely amazing. My instructor was Si and I could not of asked for a better tutor!! Not only did he work wonders breaking my bad habits to get me up to a safe driving standard, he did it with only ten hours of lesson and all while catering for my lack of confidence and heightened anxiety. If your looking to pass fast and efficiently, or you suffer from anxiety and your to nervous to drive, give this guy a chance to help you. To anyone reading this because they're looking for who's best to learn with, pick fast track!!! And if you have confidence issues then definitely pick Simon!!!!!


Tim Stephens....

Honestly, if you want to learn to drive use these guys. Si got me from sh*te to Jedi Knight over a 30 hour intensive course and I passed first time. Could not recommend more highly!


Roxy Drummond....

Recently had my first driving lesson with Simon & as someone with driving anxiety I was so nervous, but within seconds of getting in the car Simon made me feel calm and relaxed and I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. So much so that I’ve booked more and feel positive and determined that I will pass my test!


Poppy Griffiths....

Mezz Yorke....

I had Simon as my instructor on my fast track course and I have to say the professionalism whilst still being so friendly and calm was amazing! Simon helped me build confidence in the car so quickly and having been with previous driving companies before I have to say the fast track team are second to none round here! Wish I would of taken this course a long time ago!! Si helped me through my hormonal outbursts of pregnancy keeping me constantly calm and in control and was so patient I honestly can not recommend this company enough!! Thankyou fast track!❤️


Laure Brock....

Massive thank you to Simon the boss himself for taking me on helping me reach my goal of passing my driving test by August. 4 weeks of advance driving and passing straight away with only 1 fault in Pembroke-dock (Even though it was the dreadful satnav test)! Simon puts you at ease the moment you step in front of the wheel no rushing at all. I would recommend Fast track if you fancy a challenge! Thank you very much! 😁
