If you are looking to pass your test in a short space of time, or simply think you’re not ready to learn the in-and-outs of manual driving, then automatic driving lessons are the best option for you. Although it is typically cheaper per lessons to learn in a manual car, most people do not require as many automatic driving lessons before taking their test. Thus, it may work out cheaper for you this way.

With a 1 hour automatic driving lessons costing £37, a 2 hour lesson costing just £70 and a block of 10 automatic driving lessons at just £320, Kingham’s Driving School offers some competitive prices.

When taking automatic driving lessons, you must remember that your license will only permit you to drive automatic vehicles. This is something to consider if you will be driving a company or hire car. Although some people see this as a disadvantage, taking automatic driving lessons is great for many people who want to get themselves familiar with the roads at a pace that is right for them.

Your automatic license will act as a provisional for your manual driver’s licence, and once you have experience and knowledge from your automatic driving lessons, you won’t require too many extra lessons to pass your manual driving test as well.

Why take automatic driving lessons?

These days, many people drive automatic cars. They have become increasingly popular due to being easy to use. An automatic car does not have a clutch pedal or a manual gearbox, meaning the car automatically changes into the correct gear when you increase or decrease your speed. Benefits of this include:

No stalling

No clutch control

Easy slow manoeuvring

Easier hill starts

When on a hill or at a blind corner, when you remove your foot from the brake pedal, the car will automatically creep forwards until you apply the brake again. This makes for much less stressful, and in some cases, safer driving. If you often commute through a town or city for work, having an automatic car means that it is much less frustrating to crawl in slow traffic.

If you are a nervous driver, and are worried about learning how to co-ordinate a clutch and accelerator as well as changing gears, then opting for automatic driving lessons can be a great way to get you comfortable and confident behind the wheel.

After stop-starting driving lessons for almost two years I passed my test on the second try! Steve was always very encouraging and supportive and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor – thanks a lot!
