Graham is a great instructor. He makes you feel calm and relaxed and explains everything so it is easily understood.
The staff he has in-house to deal with the calls and bookings are always a pleasure to speak to.
5* from me! Thank you!
Graham is a superstar, so patient and understanding. My lesson with him were a pleasure and I cannot recommend him enough! Passed first time. His instruction was clear and easy to understand and he breakdown steps to improve my driving were invaluable. If you’re not sure which instructor to use, use Graham!
Graham is an amazing instructor, makes you feel at ease when you’re driving and teaches you everything in a step by step notion which helps you to retain information quicker and makes driving a lot easier. I’m glad I chose GetDriving on my journey to pass my test!!

Absolutely fantastic to have lessons with Graham. He really helped me get over my anxiety and get the confidence to be able to pass 1st time!
Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to take that leap and pass their test. Thanks again Graham and everyone at Get Driving Today!!!
Was a pleasure to have my driving lessons with Graham. Very friendly and makes driving easy to understand. I was an anxious driver but he gave me the confidence to believe in myself and just passed my test first time!! Would highly recommend to anyone who has always wanted to drive but feels like nerves will get the better of them. Thanks again Get Driving Today!!
Can’t thank Graham enough for all of his patience and guidance is getting me through passing my driving test first time. I would not hesitate to recommend him and Get Driving Today to anyone. In fact he is currently teaching both my children to drive. 😉 thanks Graham you’re a star
I was very late getting my driving sorted (I'm 38), and as a consequence, was extremely nervous driving and terrified of the practical test. I had attempted the practical test several times before in Bury, and then found Graham's website. Graham helped me relax and focus, where I made mistakes he would explain them to me in an extremely friendly way that put me at ease and allowed me to improve. We even did mock tests where he replayed dashcam footage to show me bits where I had gone wong.
For the actual practical test, we went through everything that made me nervous beforehand and arrived a little bit early; again destressing. I just passed my practical test with 3 minor faults. A big thank you to Graham, I would thoroughly recommend him as a driving instructor.
I can honestly say I wouldn't be able to drive but for Graham and all the Get Driving Today team. It’s very cliche but I honestly believe without his patience and him not allowing me to give up on myself I would of quit learning to drive long ago but he helped me all the way and even managed to help a friend of mine who I introduced to him pass too.
Couldn’t recommend enough.
I passed my test first time today with Graham!! I absolutely loved learning to drive each and every week getting better and better!!! At the start i was nervous and never thought i’d get the hang of it. Graham ensured me i’d get better and with his confidence i did!! I honestly couldn’t recommend him more. Thankyou

One of the most nicest and down to earth gents iv ever met graham taught me many traits that helped me pass. He built up my confidence and showed me that I am a good driver. I would highly recommend him brilliant instructor
Thank you Graham, you have made my daughter soooo happy :)
She said that you were amazing!! You were very patient and made her feel really comfortable and relaxed.
We would both highly recommend you and your services. Thank you :)
Graham didn’t just help me pass first time, he helped me build my confidence and believe in myself. I struggled to distinguish between my left and right and he helped me learn them until I didn’t need him to point in the right direction. He never once got frustrated with me or raised his voice and he would make a joke about how cautious I was with the clutch until I realised that I can do it. I was so nervous about driving and if it wasn’t for Graham I wouldn’t be a confident driver I am today. Thank you for everything!
I have passed my test today thanks to Graham he is very calm and relaxed instructor who helped me learn to drive and helped more by helping me not overthink and criticize myself for every mistake he believed in me even when I didn't thanks for everything
Graham's patience, support and humour all contributed to me becoming a confident driver and having a blast along the way! I couldn't recommend him enough as his understanding and motivating approach made me believe in myself and ultimately led to me passing both my theory and practical test first time! He was great at putting my mind at ease and was amazing at talking me through any tasks that I felt nervous about, which really helped me to practice and improve. I seriously can't thank him enough, he's the best!!!

My life has now changed. I can't thank Graham and the team enough. I have passed.
I met Graham for the first time a car park whilst going shopping. I was 38 years old and never wanted to learn how to drive ( or pretended I didn't simply because I did not want to fail at something). I had never seen Graham before that day but I approached him with the challenge of his life "Could you teach me to drive?"...challenge accepted.
I don't know why I felt Graham would be the one to help me but he was just such a warm welcoming person who put me at ease. Then I started lessons with him. He is the most supportive, genuine person I have ever met. I made the best choice in asking Graham to guide me through something that would be life changing and mean so much to me. The best decision I have ever made. Looking back on my lessons I can't believe how much Graham has not only made me a confident driver, he has changed my perspective on many areas of my life and how to deal with stressful situations in and out of the car.
I was so anxious as life with my family hit an all time low. Graham's driving lesson became my therapy sessions. Time for me! Fitting in a full time job and a poorly child was sometimes too hard to handle at times but Graham kept me going, insisting I didn't miss lesson and kept me focussed on the end goal...independence!
Even when things where bad he took the time to make me smile.
Graham tailors each step of driving to individual needs, ways to remember ( however crazy) and what helps you to learn. He gives support and advice on every aspect of driving. He pinpoints areas to work on and makes each and every lesson fun even when my stress levels were at there highest. Wow yes I would even use the word AWESOME when I think of Graham and GDT. Never once did he get frustrated or annoyed and I assure you I'm not an easy pupil ( I am known as a princess).
Thank you for pushing me to pass my driving test. Words will never be enough. You are amazing and I can't recommend you and your company enough.
I will actually miss having lessons but glad I've made an exceptional new friend.
What can I say about Graham!
My absolute hero! This time last year I had quit my lessons with a previous instructor and decided driving was not for me. Then I found Graham on Google after I typed in anxiety specialist driving school.
I suffer with anxiety, especially when it to driving. I don't think I moved out of second gear through my first few lessons. Graham was fantastic from the very beginning, he has the patience of a saint, ensuring that there was as little stress in my lessons as possible (even if it meant having the greatest showman soundtrack on for the entire lesson)
Graham was understanding and patient through the process and worked extremely hard. Nearly a year on and I passed my test yesterday and have driven all over today including the motorway! I never would have thought when I refused to drive faster than 20mph in those first few lessons that id be zipping down the motorway today.
I know we joked that when I passed, I would have Hugh Jackman to thank but I could never have got where I am without Grahams help and Guidance and I couldn't recommend him enough as a driving instructor.
Big thanks to Graham and Brian (the monkey) and Hugh Jackman if he sees this.
First and foremost, this was easily the best decision I have made. To give some context to my situation, I am 20 years old and I was a nervous wreck driver with bad anxiety and i had failed my test with a previous instructor, I had only 10 months left on my theory test and was in panic mode fearing that i might have to re-do that as well. Then I booked with graham, I had my first lesson at the start of September 2018 and now i can proudly say i have passed (today on the 31st) at end of October 2018. 2 months, yes (only 2 months!!!) with Graham aka (my saviour) and i've passed. Also, if you are in doubt of whether to book Graham or not, then please ( i must reiterate this) PLEASE do not look further, book Graham and save your self time and money, you will go through heaps of rubbish instructors for months on end when you can just pass with Graham in 2. He WILL make you pass, no doubt in my mind. I got Grahams card from a family friend and decided to go for it once and for all, and well, the proof is in the pudding, i have got my license now and i am over the moon. Thank you Graham!!! (and the rest of the staff!!) for helping me get my license, It was impossible without your guidance and encouragement!!.

Can't really give anything less than 5 stars to Graham for somehow getting me, of all people, my driving licence first time round in what was a surprisingly short and painless endeavour. Thank you for your seemingly endless supply of support, patience and questionable road markings! Will be 100% recommending you to anyone who asks.
I'll be singing Graham's praises to everyone and anyone who'll listen! He did a fantastic job with me and took me from a bag of nerves to a much more relaxed and confident driver. I wouldn't have passed my test without him, his patience and humour really kept me going and every lesson was a pleasure. Very knowledgeable and professional instructor who I couldn't recommend highly enough. Thanks Graham!
Iv just passed today with get driving today with Graham. 2nd time for me but first time was all me 😒.

I give Graham a 5 star review because he’s worth ever star and will recommend him to everyone .
