Paul is a great instructor, very understanding and he does he best to keep you at ease


You can take automatic driving lessons anywhere in the Basingstoke area and learn to drive in an automatic car. Automatic driving lessons start at £32 an hour. Learning to drive in an automatic car is very easy and straight forward. As a driving instructor I, Paul loader find that my students love learning to drive in the automatic car as there is no clutch control of gears to worry about. Many students have already tried learning to drive in a manual car and found it too difficult, some though are complete beginners and have never driving a car before.

You will be able to take your automatic driving lessons at a time to suit you. Normal business hours are Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm, sorry there are not normal evenings, but some early evening maybe available for a small surcharge. To help you fit your driving lessons in around your daily commitments I can offer you flexible lesson times throughout the day, as well as flexible collection and drop of points such as; home, work, college, town and the railway station etc. All automatic driving lessons, courses and tuition are strictly on a one to one basis, you will never be asked to share the car with another student.

As an instructor I have a relaxed style of teaching, but at the same time keep to a high level of professional and modern teaching and coaching. It is my goal to teach all pupils to learn to drive safely for life and to help them to pass the driving test. I offer driving lessons and classes for learner drivers, Pass Plus courses, refresher lessons and motorway tuition. Be sure to check the frequently asked questions page or contact me if you have any unanswered questions.

NEW to give you extra support approaching your driving test you may wish to do a days intensive course to boost your chances of passing the driving test.  This is ideal for any pupils who have last minute nerves, or has previously taken a driving test and is in a hurry to re-sit the driving test.
