What our clients have to say….

I had a few instructors in the past and I found them to be time wasters, then I found Geoff Capes Driving school. I passed my test in three months.

Instructors was excellent esp Mian Ali.

I found learning to drive with this company to be excellent.

This company I would highly recommended.

Nazia Shfiq of Stockport, February 2020

I saw a lot of good reviews on the website and got a good initial response from the company.

I have driven for many years in another country. I explained this to Ian and he was happy to help to ensure I passed the test here. He pointed out any bad habits I had developed over the years highlighting specific things that examiners will look for.

Ian is a experienced driving instructor and was very patient from the start. He suggested specific techniques that I was unaware of and will continue to use in the future.

Maurice Gordon of Stockport, February 2020

The main reason for choosing Geoff Capes Driving School was that I had received recommendations from numerous people.

I needed a driving instructor who was patient and understood how to cope with a very nervous driver.

I didn’t think I would struggle with my nerves as much as I did, but so glad I persevered with my driving lessons and finally passed.

Andy’s teaching methods were very good and easy to follow/remember.

I liked the routine of having my driving lessons on the same set days/times each week. It helped with the continuity which is what I needed being such a nervous driver. Andy was patient with me and understood the things that made me most nervous.

Alice Hopkin of Macclesfield, January 2020

I chose Geoff Capes driving school as you have a  large presence in the town, and being a gentleman of a certain age, I remember your namesake competing in the shot in the 1970’s. I’m sure your younger students do not make that connection, but it reminded me of my youth, and I chose you.

I found the learning to drive easier, the theory test was more of a learning curve.

Mian my driving instructor was superb, very calm and professional. His attention to the smallest details helped me pass first time at the age of 52!
We always did a bit of theory regarding the manoeuvres we would be covering in each lesson before we set off. Then there was a re-cap at the next lesson of what we had covered. A methodical approach to learning is how I would describe it, and it really worked for me. On a personal note, I will miss Mian, he was a lovely gentleman and I very much enjoyed his company.

A great all-round service, backed up with text alerts, great instruction and a professional attitude.

I honestly cannot think of anything you could do to improve, I really enjoyed the experience (after my initial panic subsided).

Stuart Kirk-Lockley of Macclesfield, January 2020

I was recommended Geoff Capes Driving School by my auntie who had passed with Geoff a couple of years ago and I wanted to learn in an automatic car.

I wanted an instructor who was patient gave good feedback and also had a high pass rate.

My driving lessons I found to be an exciting experience and less nerve wracking then I thought, I really looked forward to every driving lesson I had!

I found my driving instructor Geoff teaching methods very useful and very easy to get the hang of

I would 100% recommend Geoff Capes driving school to everyone I know! Geoff made me feel comfortable from the start and helped with any doubts I had every day was different.

Stacie Dalzell of Stockport

When I was looking for a driving school they had to have good customer reviews and be a reputable company.

I found the whole learning to drive to be quite a long process but I believe it is ensuring that you are well equipped for real life driving.
Steve my driving instructor was very calm and friendly and put me at ease from the first driving lesson. He was very punctual and we made progress quickly.

I found Geoff Capes Driving School to be highly professional and I would certainly recommend them to all my friends

Emily Dixon of Glossop

The most important thing for me when choosing a driving instructor was to find someone I felt comfortable with as I was very nervous, I had lessons years previously and hadn’t liked the instructor so after several lessons I had given up. Luckily for me I found the delightful, funny, charming man that is Geoff Capes! He made every lesson one that I really looked forward to, he is so much fun and really helped me with my confidence.  I wanted to learn in an automatic car the school had to have an automatic which luckily for me they did.

Learning to drive with Geoff was a dream compared to what I had initially expected, I found the driving so difficult but he really kept me on track, gave brilliant help and advice and never made me feel stupid when I just didn’t get it! How he kept sane after teaching me to reverse around a corner I will never know!

I would definitely recommend Geoff Capes driving school, particularly to those who are nervous as I found Geoff really put all those nerves at ease and he made me feel less anxious.
