Automatic Driving Lessons

All learner drivers are welcome. No matter whether you have had any previous experience or not, nervous drivers are also especially welcomed. You will learn to drive in a relaxed but professional style, learning everything you need to know to learn to drive safely for life and to go on and pass your driving test.  Learning to drive in an automatic car is much easier than a manual one as there is no gear changing, clutch control to learn, also the car does not roll backwards on those tricky hill starts, so it should take less time and money to pass that all important driving test. All your lessons are on a one 2 one basis and are individually tailored to your own learning style and requirements so you can learn to drive at your own pace, giving you peace of mind and helping you to enjoy all of your automatic driving lessons.

The Lessons

Following the DVSA’s latest learner driver syllabus and learning all the latest driving skills from your very first lesson to the driving test, you will be taught all you need to know to become a safe driver. Lessons are in either 1 hour, 1.5 hours or 2 hours sessions. You will learn how to deal with junctions, roundabouts and how to deal safely with situations you come across in day to day driving. Pay as you go lessons are £35 an hour and there are discounts for block bookings, all information is the prices and discounts section.

If you have previously had lessons in a manual car and found that it was not for you, or had lessons with another driving instructor and not been satisfied, then why not try an automatic driving lesson? Automatic driving lessons are much easier as there is no clutch control or gear changing to learn, also they do not roll backwards at junctions. So they are much easier to drive than manual ones. If you have had an instructor previously and have not been happy, why not book a lessons and try it out, as a driving school we have many 5 star reviews.

The Driving Test

Passing your driving test in an automatic car should also be easier and many people who have failed their manual driving test, sometimes several times without success have switched to automatic driving lessons and taken an automatic driving test and passed.  Please note that you will still need to learn all the rules of the road and how to drive safely for life – automatic lessons still requires you to learn all the skills needed to be a safe, courteous and responsible driver.
