Save money with automatic driving lessons

Pass your test in less time by taking driving lessons in an automatic car. Learning how to drive an automatic is easier and will take less time – saving you money on passing your test.

Perhaps you want to get your licence more quickly, but would rather not take intensive driving lessons? Or maybe you’ve already had tuition in a manual car and have decided to ditch the gears and the clutch for an easier drive?

Automatic cars are perfect if you expect to do a lot of urban driving where you’ll be stopping and starting frequently. They may also suit drivers who have a disability that makes changing gear difficult.

How-2-Drive have been helping people pass their driving tests in manual cars since 2009. We’re proud to now be able to offer automatic driving lessons in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston – and the surrounding suburbs too.

Ditch the stick and pass your test sooner!

Learning to drive an automatic car is ideal if you are nervous about driving or simply want to get your driving licence sooner without the fuss of changing through all those gears! Just think: no tricky hill starts, struggling to find the biting point, or wondering “what gear do I need for this busy roundabout?”

Despite all these benefits, think carefully before deciding to take automatic driving lessons. Once you pass your automatic driving test you will have a licence which only allows you to drive automatic cars and vans. This may limit your choices later on in life when buying or renting cars.

If you still haven’t decided, you might want to consider taking driving lessons in a manual car.

Completed my driving with James Tinsey and passed first time today. James is a relaxed and great instructor. We... approached our driving with a perfection based approach which made the test incredibly easy and calming. I could not recommend how2drive and my instructor James Tinsey any more and if I could it would be a 10/5. The driving school itself is run by great people who communicate really well with any issues I had and it is clear to see why how2drive and it’s students are so successful. The car was beautiful to drive too!read more

Peter was the best driving instructor I have ever come across throughout the period of learning my practical driving,... he is very polite, patient and never shouts on his candidates, in fact words are not enough to express how good he was to me, he is always ready to teach you multiple times until you become perfect, I highly recommend him for any one that wants to learn his or her driving practicals, thank you sir, you are the more

A year ago i started as a PDI having undertaken a rigorous training programme with Howard Floyd. I really cannot... emphasise how good Howard is with his training and from early on with the training demonstrated a lot more confidence in me than perhaps i had myself. The role play sessions in the instructional training were always fun but really helped my understanding of how to identify and fix faults. Howard was always encouraging and really getting me to try and probe deeper with questioning to understand root cause of faults, this has helped enormously as my own teaching time has progressed. For anyone thinking of training to become a driving instructor then there is only one choice if you want the best training and grounding for a new career.Howard's training doesn't end when you get the trainee licence and the additional training sessions with Howard observing my teaching and providing feedback on areas that need improvement is invaluable on the learning journey you have to undertake.Howard is always there at the end of a phone if you have any questions/situations you need help with.They really helped to contribute to my own part 3 pass in May 23.This job really is incredibly rewarding/stressful/nervewracking and fun and you never know from day to day which it is going to be. No two days are the same and just when you think you've cracked it a lesson is just round the corner to offer you new learnings. You get to meet some great people and seeing them with the pass certificate truly is the most rewarding of endings.I can't finish the review without a special mention for Sam and Jenny who are amazing in filling our slots and also being there at the end of the phone if we need to offload after a frustrating lesson/day.All the other How2Drive instructors are there for you as well with help and advice when you need any, it really is an amazing team.See it, say it, sort it!!!!!!!read more
