Thank you Gerry for your patience and support. I always looked forward to my lessons.  I had tried to learn in a manual car without success and your adapted car was fantastic.  It gave me the confidence to drive.  Massive thank you for getting me through my driving test first time.

I can honestly say, Gerry is a fantastic driving instructor, he’s patient, caring and learning to drive with him seems easy, he doesn’t push you into anything you don’t want and will make sure your happy before anything your not sure off.. not only that he’s easy going and communicates very well. if you want a instructor who you are going to get value for money and great learning knowledge and experience at the same time, look no further. I passed first time, and a lot of it I put down to Gerry’s way of teaching. Thank you again Gerry appreciate it so much, all the best, G

Gerry is the best Driving Instructor in Gloucestershire and trust me I’ve had a few over the years! Driving Lessons with Gerry were amazing and he is a very kind and patient man who could teach the most nervous person the skills they require to become a confident driver! Gerry will be with you every step of the way, no matter how many lessons you need or how long it will take you to pass your Driving Test! I am now a proud owner of a Ford Fiesta Zetec and I finally have my own independence and couldn’t be happier! I would highly recommend this Driving School!
Thank you Gerry!
 Also, Thank you to Lisa and Ian who were always available to help me book my weekly lessons around my busy work schedule!

As a generally nervous person, I was relieved that Gerry was a very calm driving instructor. He gave constructive advice whenever necessary, but also praise and he always stayed calm when I did stuff wrong. I would definitely recommend Gerry as a driving instructor. I think it can be really hard for a lot of people to find a driving instructor that they feel comfortable with, as they already have the pressure of trying to learn to drive. I don’t think you could hope for a calmer driving instructor.

After trying to find the right driving instructor for years, with no luck, Gerry was the man. He gave me confidence, put my nerves at ease and made my dreams a reality. I can’t thank him enough and would highly recommend him to any learners.

Gerry definitely the best instructor I’ve known. 
I wish I start my lessons with him from the beginning.  He is an amazing instructor, so comprehensive and never missed every details while teaching. I’ve learned so many things never been taught by my two other instructors before. His personality is also very calm and patience made the lessons feel easier and effective at the same time.
The best thing is he seems to understand each different characters of his students, and keep track well of our progress every week. He is also very supportive and always has faith in his students.

100% recommended. Worth every penny!

And thanks to his great staff also Lisa & Ian who have been very helpful with the booking schedules. They are amazing!

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.

I would like to say a big heartfelt thank you to Gerry. It has taken myself a fair few years to get to the point of being able to independently drive an adapted car, and thanks to Gerry’s amazing patience, faith in his learners, and willingness to keep calm, even when things look like they are starting to go backward has helped me to achieve this big life goal.
I would really recommend Gerry Petticrew Driving School to anyone who wants to be able to overcome their fears of the great open road with ease, as Gerry is very happy going at his learners’ speed of progression.

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!
