Dc driver

Can i use stepper motor driver for geared motor

Maybe, maybe not. A geared motor is geared to get low speed, high torque from a high speed low torque motor. A stepper motor can be run at low speeds by using slow steps but this does not provide high available torque so it all depends on the load requirement

After re-considering this and possible interpretations of the question I can only say that it depends completely on the motor used. If it is simply a stepper a with gears your driver may work; if something else, (eg dc) it almost certainly would not work
