I survived a stroke in May 2018 & having been referred to the RDAC I contacted Gerry in February 19 as I knew I needed an Automatic car. I have driven a manual for 30 years. I was very nervous and anxious about driving an Automatic but Gerry has imho a knack with nervous drivers and the gift of calmness, especially when I was terrified on my first lesson. I had 3 lessons before my RDAC assessment, which I passed. Once I had my own car I booked additional lessons just until I had familiarised myself with my car. If you have an impairment due to a Stroke or injury, or if you are particularly nervous about driving, or returning to it, Gerry Petticrew is the Instructor for you. I cannot rate him highly enough. It’s not quite a year since my Stroke but I’m now mobile, which brings with it Independence and Freedom.

Gerry was really calm and full of encouragement, we went at my pace and was he honest if I’d messed up. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!

Such a great driving instructor! Always looked forward to my lessons, and passed first time! Would highly recommend to anyone learning to drive in Gloucester!
