Ready For A Safe, Fun Driving Experience?

We are an independant school that specialises in teaching manual driving, making the learning process simple and stress-free. With a background in educational support and mediation training, I have seen a need for a softer touch to teaching manual driving. By using calm techniques, positive reinforcement and encouragement, and incorporating diagrams, videos, and other visual learning tools, I help teach new drivers how to love driving and stay safe on the roads. All of my lessons are tailored to each student’s individual needs and learning styles.


Driving Basics

When you first start learning to drive it can seem a little overwhelming. We know that, but don’t worry! Our lessons are tailored to your experience and skill. We start with the basics and move at your speed.


Prepare for Road Test

Practice makes perfect! We know you have heard that before but it is especially true with driving. We will make sure you are ready to confidently face every situation on the road before you sit your test.


Safer P Platers

Our aim is to make safe drivers forever. We love driving, and we want you to love it too! We don’t just focus on passing your test, we focus on giving you all of the skills you need to be a safe and confident driver forever.

Our Customer Comments

Read the testimonials from GCM drivers and discover how easy it can be to learn in a Manual Car.

Rhani is an absolutely amazing teacher, when I first contacted her to start my lessons, I did not know anything about driving a manual car, or driving at all! I was very scared and anxious, but Rhani is so calm, and patient, she made me feel comfortable straight away, and now, after a few lessons, I can’t believe how far I’ve come! Rhani is a lovely, approachable, hard working person, and I would recommend her to anyone who is either 16, or 39 and never driven before, like myself! Thanks Rhani!


Adult Learner

Rhani is kind and patient, you will feel safe and empowered by her. You will receive the utmost care and knowledge on how to conquer a manual with confidence.
