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

Geoff Capes Driving School

A calm, understanding and punctual instructor that gives you the best learning experience possible

The friendly nature of the instructor. The fact he made me feel comfortable and built me up to feel confident in my own abilities to succeed with driving.Learning to drive with Geoff made me feel like I could enjoy my driving lessons whereas previous driving instructors (not of this business) dampened my experience and enjoyment behind the wheel.
Geoff prepares you not only for the test but for what comes after he works at your own pace and is a friendly guy to have there with you smiling all the way. Anything I wasn’t sure of he was happy to guide me through effectively and easily too.
Yes, I would recommend this driving school to anyone who needs to learn as you’re not going to find professional quality teaching from anywhere else. If you want a jolly, cool headed and supportive teacher Geoff is your man!
The only thing I can suggest is the text messages to tell you have a lesson the next day, have them be sent out earlier the day before I received mine 8pm every day before so perhaps early evening time. Its only nitpicking but that’s the only negative feedback I can give.

I was looking for a driving school who could fit in around my times also the driving instructor had to be patient and friendly
The driving school had to have a good pass rate and able to accommodate my requirements I found that my driving lessons were exactly how I had imagined
Amanda my driving instructor explained everything clearly and I found it so easy to follow
I would certainly recommend Geoff Capes Driving school to anybody as I had a high standard of driving instructor and I passed my test first time
Martine Turner of Stockport

Geoff Capes Driving School

It was very important to me that I found a driving instructor that offered a calm and patient approach as I was very anxious when it came to driving, and looking at previous reviews of Geoff Capes Driving School it looked like it fit the bill.
It was also important to me that my instructor was somebody I felt comfortable with and Amanda was definitely that person. We got on great and when I started I used to be so anxious however as the lessons went on I began to enjoy them as Amanda my driving instructor made me feel at ease and taught me to drive in a way that just clicked.
I was super nervous about starting driving lessons again as I had driving lessons a few years back which just really put me off, so my confidence was at a serious low. I was very skeptical if I would ever be able to drive a manual car but with Amanda’s teaching methods I passed first time which was an absolute shocker! So, although it wasn’t easy for me I enjoyed it much more than I expected to.
Amanda’s teaching methods were perfect for me, I thought I was unteachable to be honest ha-ha! But with her hard work and patience she really managed to teach me in a way that eased my nerves and eventually helped to limit the times I got flustered! She broke things down into more simple things and although at the start it felt like there was way too much to think about it eventually just clicked.
Yes, I already have and my friend has already started her lessons! If I can learn and pass first time then anybody can so I would definitely recommend Amanda! I am still in shock now!
Personally all aspects for me was covered and the theory test material was also invaluable! The only thing I can think of is maybe less texts ha-ha!

Joanne Hough of Macclesfield

Geoff Capes Driving School

I was looking for a driving instructor firm that covered my local area and a driving instructor who could fit around my family life with having two small children.
It was important that my instructor was patient and able to make me feel confident and comfortable whilst on the roads. Amanda certainly delivered on that. Amanda always put me at ease which helped me to relax but could be firm with me when needed. Amanda was not only my driving instructor. When I passed my practical test I felt we had built a friendship she’d been with me every step of the way. My goal was to pass my test before I returned to work after maternity leave. I passed my test a month before I went back to work.I found learning to drive harder than I had first thought if I’m honest but Amanda was always there to help with encouragement and reassurance that I would get there with patience (something that does not come naturally to me lol)
Amanda’s teaching methods was always explained well therefore easy to follow and practiced over and over until it becomes a natural manoeuvre.
I would definitely recommend Geoff Capes Driving School to anyone with a special mention of Amanda. I’ve actually passed her number to a few friends that are now looking to pass there driving test. I never imaged I would pass my test when I’m on the wrong side of thirty but I did. I found Amanda to always be flexible and with still having baby brain I also liked the reminder texts you got the night before your driving lessons.

Christine Hemlin of Stockport

Geoff Capes Driving School

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.

Mike Rogerson Stockport

Geoff Capes Driving School

“When I was looking for a driving school they had to offer automatic lessons also the instructors had to be patient and understanding, other factors that would help me make up my mind was what did other people who had learned with the driving school had to say, I was really impressed with all the customer reviews on the website.

Leaning to drive forward came quite quickly but when it came to the manoeuvres that was quite a struggle but I got there with a lot of help from Geoff, so much so that I passed my test first time.

Geoff’s teaching methods were great he was very patient he made everything easy to understand and was very clear and concise with his instructions.

I would definitely recommend the driving school because the customer service was excellent and Geoff was prompt and very reliable”

Ann Kelly of Stockport

Geoff Capes Driving School

Being 32 yrs. old and only just deciding to learn to drive was a very daunting thought and played havoc on my anxiety levels but it was something I had to do to finally take myself out the passenger seat and into the driver’s seat for work and family purposes.
My driving instructor Andrew Jennings is by far one of the most relaxed, calm, understanding and patient people I’ve ever met. That along with a good sense of humor I instantly felt at ease
And every time I went into meltdown he quickly had me back up and feeling confident.
I passed my test on my 2nd attempt so just like to give a
Massive THANK YOU to Andy for everything and would recommend him and the whole Geoff Capes driving school to anyone.. even the other half is now taking her lessons with him….

I was lucky to have Geoff as a driving instructor he displayed a calm and understanding attitude throughout our lessons ,he explained things very clearly, Geoff also fitted my lessons around my schedule.

The learning to drive process took me longer than I had expected but when I started taking lessons with Geoff everything seemed to fall into place.
