What our clients have to say….



I felt like I have had the best training, preparing me for the REAL world. Not just for my test.

Dave my driving Instructor was the best instructor I could ever ask for.
-Life coach, and extremely patient.
-understood my struggles, even the littlest things most instructors overlook usually.
-taught me how to be a very safe and EFFICIENT driver
-was understanding in every single way

The school is perfection. I could not say they would need to improve in any way!



The main reason that I chose Geoff Capes Driving School was that I wanted to learn in an automatic and had heard from a friend they were very good, very patient and friendly.

I had tried over the years with previous driving instructors and never felt a connection. With Ian, he made me feel at ease straight away. I couldn’t recommend him enough. He brought out the confidence in me. I found learning to drive to be a lot easier than I first thought. Ian’s teaching methods were spot on. He was friendly, calming, patient, firm and witty all rolled into one. He knew how nervous I was but soon made me realise I could do it.



I found learning to drive to be more relaxed whilst being thorough in everything. Dave my driving instructor also made it more fun in every driving lesson that we did and made sure we achieved what I wanted to accomplish at the end of every lesson.

I found Dave’s teaching methods to be really good and Dave gives a lot of tips even on how to control your nerves on the test day.

Dave makes sure you are confident and 100% ready to take your test. He is very patient and always gives you honest feedback whether you’ve done well or if there are things that still need improving which I think really helps the students.
