If you’re looking to pass your practical driving test, then you’ll be looking for manual driving lessons.
I also go along as an observer with my clients on their test, allowing me to keep up-to-date on the latest test requirements — seeing what the examiners are looking for, and the routes you are likely to see on your practical driving test.
I have both manual and automatic cars — so I can start you off in the automatic while you learn the basics and build confidence – we then swap cars and add the gears and clutch when you’re ready. You’ll progress faster and may need fewer lessons overall, so why try to run before you can walk?
Be assured, you will actually be driving a car on your very first session!
Haven’t driven for a while? Not feeling confident on the road? I can help you build both skills and confidence, so you can feel comfortable driving on faster roads such as dual-carriageways and motorways.
Many recent clients are full licence holders, from different countries around the world, who need to pass the Practical Driving Test in order to gain a full UK Driving Licence. I myself first learned to drive outside of Europe, so can empathise with a driver having to adapt their skills to driving on the rather narrow and crowded roads we have here in the UK.
Starting to drive in an Automatic means you have less to think about so you can build confidence and progress faster.
“No-gears no-tears,” as they say! Being able to forget about the gears and clutch lets you concentrate on the road and other road users.
I also start manual drivers in the automatic — so that they can progress to a manual car once their confidence and competence have had a chance to grow – this often means they need fewer lessons, saving both time and money.
Why try to run before you’ve learned to walk?
(Remember, if you pass a practical test in an automatic, your licence permits you to drive only automatic cars)

The course takes at least six hours, and I’m happy to do that in one intensive session if you prefer, just contact me and we’ll find a day that suits you.
