702 Small Business Awards

From K53 to advanced techniques; this may be the best driving academy in SA

Click here to reward a small business that provides great service with a nomination for 2015's Small Business Awards with 702 and Sage One.

It's not often that you find a driving school so attentive to detail that customers not only take note but spread the word.

Godfrey’s Advanced Drivers Academy (GADA) was established in April 1967.

GADA incorporated the Advanced Driving Programme in 1999 and has since undertaken numerous assignments including advanced driver training and assessments for Gerotek, Eskom, Telkom, Spoornet and pre-license training for Wits University.

Godfrey’s Advanced Drivers Academy (GADA) has been nominated by Mbali Radebe.

Mbali says the service she received at GADA was excellent. Her driving instructor took time to contact her and was very patient when discussing the payment options and lessons.

She says GADA offers an excellent test service where learner drivers are able to hire out one of their cars for the duration of the test.

They also cater for people living with physical disabilities who are trained using an adapted vehicle.

Their instructors are trained by Quad Para Association with whom they are affiliated.

The owner of Godfrey's Advanced Driving Academy, Octavia Moabi, told John Robbie (scroll down to listen to the audio) that the secret is that they offer tailor-made packages for their customers; pay attention to detail and treat their customers like kings and queens.
