My son is currently learning with Graham and is progressing with ease and confidence. I previously recommended Graham to a friends wife who had failed with previous instructors but now drives with confidence. Graham makes his pupils calm and confident to make learning to drive easy.
I found Graham after an unfortunate experience with a driving instructor, who left me feeling extremely anxious about the prospect of driving. However, Graham immediately put me at ease with his relaxed and humourous nature, and let me take driving at a pace that I felt comfortable at, but at the same time, boosted my confidence to allow me to have faith in myself. It is with his help and support that I passed both my theory and practical tests first time. I would highly recommend Graham to anyone learning to drive, but particularly to those who aren't as confident. I will look back at learning to drive with fond memories, of the many laughs we shared and the increased confidence I felt that I didn't think would ever be possible for me!
I have been learning on and off with Graham for the 8yrs! I cant believe we've put up with each other so long. Graham is a fab instructor, that makes you feel at ease behind the wheel, and isn't afraid to tell you off when you've done wrong. I highly recommend him!! Thanks again Graham.
I have passed my driving test today with Graham. He is an amazing driving instructor who makes you feel comfortable and at ease when driving for the first time. Graham adapts his learning techniques to you as an individual. He listens to you and uses your feedback to structure his lessons, ensuring you learn at a pace which is suitable to you. He is extremely patient and helps you to overcome your fears (hills in my case) and build your confidence on the road. Not forgetting to mention his amazing personality. His optimism, enthusiasm, and encouraging nature have definitely helped me during those Monday morning lessons. I would definitely recommend Graham and the whole GDT team and I couldn't thank them enough for helping me to pass!!!
Lightening strikes twice , thank you GDT both of my boys passed 1st time after having lessons with you.
You adapted to their needs , personalities and helped them gain confidence, knowledge and skills to ensure they was ready to pass their test. My eldest passed 5 years ago and is an excellent no claims driver and its all thanks to Graham and his team.
From supporting you with special offers, supporting you with your theory, booking tests and aftertest/ advanced support.
You could not get a better driving instructor to get you on the road. SIMPLY THE BEST

Most amazing driving instructor! Graham passed me quickly and taught me how to drive safely on the roads not just how to pass my test! Couldn't imagine doing my lessons with anybody else!
Passed my driving test today with Graham and I have to say he is an absolutely fantastic instructor who I would recommend him to anyone! He did everything that he could to make me feel at ease in the car and was so supportive through the whole process. When I first got into his car I didn't have any confidence in myself, but thanks to Graham I now know that I can drive and that anything is possible! Such an amazing team and the best driving instructor out there...anyone and everyone should use Get Driving Today!
Graham is an amazing driving instructor. Would highly recommend. He makes you feel completely comfortable and ease whilst learning. He is very patient. I found learning to drive very difficult after learning with a previous instructor and becoming very nervous, but graham was fantastic, he helped get over my nerves and helped me to pass. I honestly don't think I'd have passed otherwise. Graham makes learning to drive personal, he adapts his technique to how you learn and think which really does help you. Graham has helped me and my sister pass and is currently teaching my youngest sister who wouldn't have gone anywhere else. He really is a brilliant driving instructor who I can't thank enough. Would definitely recommend.
I honestly can't recommend Graham enough ... If he can calm me down (those who know me will fully get why this is an achievement ha) and make me feel at ease behind the wheel then he can pretty much take on the world ! Not only is he the best driving instructor I've ever had he is also a genuinely nice guy...
Graham can easy adapt his teaching style to fit individual needs which really helped me deal with my anxiety and dyslexia. He is very enthusiastic, motivational, funny and passionate and doesn't give up, eventually you'll pass.
Graham at GDT has recently taught our daughter to drive. Not just to pass a test but to drive safely and competently. His patience, humour and professionalism shines through. He kept us updated at every stage and advised us how to support her. She passed with flying colours last week and is now flying solo in a very calm and confident manner. I would highly recommend Graham and we will be returning to GDT in 18 months when our son turns 17. Thanks Graham

This is a review from a different perspective. I passed my driving test over 20 years ago so I'm not writing as a pupil. So why, you may ask? As a team member of thebestofbury I see so many fabulous reviews coming through for Graham and so this week found out why. I became the back seat passenger whilst one of his pupils went out for a lesson. His patience, encouragement and reassuring approach along with his fun and larger than life personality just go to show why so many people choose him as their instructor. If I were learning again, he'd be my first choice too!
I started lessons with Graham after switching to him from another instructor I had zero confidence and was on the verge of giving up ! From the first lesson Graham reassured me,he listened to my worries and found ways to help me understand which helped with my anxiety (which was pretty bad ).As time progressed I became more confident and in Oct 2016 I finally passed my driving test . I hand on heart truly believe I would not have passed my driving test if Graham had not have been my instructor ! After passing my test and getting a new car came the nightmare of going at it alone,stalling was my new best friend and was getting me down . I asked Graham if he could possibly spare some time to come out with me in my new car to give me some tips . He made the time even though he was extremely busy to do this and now I feel much more confident. I said to someone just yesterday I feel sorry for people who don't learn to drive with Graham, I genuinely do think he is one of the best driving instructors there is . I'm about to give him 5 stars but if I could I'd give him 10 !!!!!
I honestly couldn't of wished for a better instructor. Graham helped me with my major fear of hills and my lack of confidence. He has a brilliant way of explaining everything in a way that sticks in your head. I honestly don't think I could of passed with anyone else. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in. 😁 xx
So it's been a long time coming, its been on it's been off there's been lots of tears and lots of tantrums /swearing 🙊🙈 but today I passed my driving test 2nd time lucky, I literally would not have been able to do it without Graham Evans and that is not just a usual pass day thank you it's from the actual heart, I do believe without his help I would have given up .. Only he knows what I mean/how it's been and I am so grateful .👍👍👍...
Graham is an amazing, patient and funny instructor. After having 32 lessons with someone else and not learning anything i decided to look for another instructor, i stumbled onto grahams website and after reading his amazing reviews decided to get in touch. From the first lesson i was already learning new things and couldnt believe how much progress i made in such a short amount of time. He has a real gift for making you feel at ease and boosting your confidence, everytime i felt i couldnt do something he could instantly turn that around especially on test day. Wednesday morning became the highlight of my week and the only downside of passing is that ill miss his funny charm. I would recomend everyone to graham. He went beyond and above in my lessons
Graham is an amazing instructor and did a fantastic job of getting me ready for my driving test 3 weeks before we initially booked my test for. I couldn't have asked for more from him he gave up his Friday evenings with the wife for my lessons as it was the only time I could fit a driving lesson in around work and family. I recommend him to anyone looking to do there driving lessons and getting on the road , I feel he has given me great advice for my driving beyond my pass. Thank you graham for your hard work and getting me where I needed to be. Simon Taylor
I'm 50+.... tried, and failed, to learn to drive in my 20s. All my life since I just accepted that driving wasn't for me, that I was just one of those people that wasn't a natural born driver.
2016 rolls round... And I need to learn to drive. GDT was recommended to me... So I started lessons. I was a nervous wreck... 20mph felt like speeding... I still had all my old doubts.
Today I passed my test :-) Graham is super calm, super supportive, and makes lessons fun.. Whatever stage you're at in your driving journey.
If he can get me driving... And enjoying it... He can teach anyone! Can't recommend highly enough :-)
Cannot recommend Graham enough, from being someone that was petrified of driving a car to then passing first time it's safe to say Graham is amazing! He makes you feel so at ease and will ensure you understand every detail before your test, cannot recommend enough.

Very professional and high quality standard of teaching I would highly recommend graham to anyone of any age who is looking for a driving instructor thank you once again graham xxx Jill"
After being told most of my life I can't do, I won't do i have finally put wrong the doubters thanks to Graham and GDT team who helped me gain my pass certificate. Graham is a patient, friendly, funny but sometimes sarcastic (lol) driving instructor who gave me the complete confidence to pass my test. We had many giggles along the way and put me straight at ease in my very first lesson. I thank the GDT team who will go out of the way to help. I would truly recommend GDT to anyone they are very patient and friendly. I'd like to thank the whole GDT team especially Graham for giving me the confidence I never had and a new lease of life cheers guys xx
Graham is aFAB instructor! Really patient and shows you methods to make learning to drive much more simple. I am a massive worrier and Graham managed to help me stop stressing all the time! Would highly recomend!! :)
