Automatic/electric car driving lessons in Telford area

Pass your test easier. No gear changing needed

Inside training vehicleIf you don't fancy changing gear as many people don't, why not consider taking your test in an automatic vehicle? This does remove one of the most difficult things that beginners have to contend with - changing gears!

You should be aware that passing a test in an automatic vehicle allows you to drive either an automatic or an electric vehicle.

A word about modern automatics. Please do not be influenced by stories from people who drove automatic cars in the early days. They might tell you about unreliability and expensive repairs. Whilst that was true, for the last 40 years, automatics have been very reliable and simple to use, they don't use more fuel than a manual which used to be the case and providing they are serviced properly, should last thousands of miles without problems.

Many people believe that you have less control with an automatic but that is not the case. Unless you want to enter a motor race, (when manual is best), an automatic has many advantages. They are easy to control, use about the same amount of fuel as a manual and are fantastic when you get stuck in traffic and you watch all those other drivers struggling to keep creeping along whilst you simply tap one pedal occasionally. There are people who just won't drive a manual car and 90 per cent of cars in the USA are autos! As a bonus they are also safer and it's easier to pass your test!
