Automatic driving Lessons
FULLY QUALIFIED MALE AND FEMALE DRIVING INSTRUCTORS
We accept that learning to drive an automatic is becoming more popular however there are just not enough instructors in West Yorkshire willing to teach in it. We therefore will require your reasons for your preference over manual tuition.
Many learners take only a few lessons in a manual car and then give up because they feel it is too hard for them to grasp. There are a number of reasons as to why this might be
- learners should not expect to be able to work the gears and the clutch so quickly. Independence may take over 10 hours and this is normal.
- The Driving Instructor teaching you may not have explained gears correctly or helped you enough
We may ask you to carry out an assessment in a manual car with one of our senior trainers to ensure that you are making the right decision.
We have proven that 90% of learners we have assessed in fact do not need automatic.
Most having had poor tuition or a lack of understanding of the time it takes to develop skills.
IT IS NORMAL PRACTICE TO STILL FEEL GEARS AND CLUTCH CONTROL A STRUGGLE UP TO 20 HOURS. – DONT GIVE UP TOO EASILY !!
Because we are in such high demand please tell us –
- your regular availability and postcode area
- If you are wiling to carry out an assessment in a manual car
complete beginners are not taken on in automatic unless the learner has a disability whereby they cannot learn in a manual
- we will NOT do quick pass lessons or block lessons in automatic
- we will not take anyone on who has a test booked
BE SURE – We want to make sure that you are making the right choice. So always speak to your instructor to get their advice first as gears may not be the issue it could be to do with observations and decision making, which in turn affect the gear choice.
ALWAYS – Consider changing your current instructor for one that may give you a clearer understanding of the gears and how to use. for example I teach learners that in a 30mph zone its 3rd gear and busy areas in a 40mph zone is 4th gear. 2nd gear for allowing you more time to look and steer. and 1st for stopping.
Set lesson plans are in place for both manual land automatic driving lessons and in our experience learning automatic does not reduce the length of time significantly to warrant a decision to do automatic driving lessons over manual.
Our Driving Lesson prices for automatic driving lessons reflect the current market trend. Learners will find automatic driving lesson prices are generally higher than manual tuition in West Yorkshire.
FACT – 90% of those who call stating they struggle with manual -After an evaluation have been found to have no issues at all – just poor tuition from previous instructors or lack on confidence in their own abilities
Automatic cars differ from manual for the fact that there is no clutch pedal to operate.
If a practical driving test is passed in an automatic then it is not possible to drive a manual without undertaking the learner practical test again in a manual.
IT IS BETTER TO PASS IN A MANUAL this way you can drive both.
