Automatic driving lessons in Ipswich

Have you considered taking automatic driving lessons in Ipswich? They certainly make a refreshing change to learning to drive in a manual car because there is less stress and hassle, not just with learning but driving in general.

Around 20 to 30 years ago anyone looking for automatic driving schools in Ipswich might have had a stigma because learning to drive in an automatic had a negative image. Many people incorrectly thought learning to drive in an automatic was for people who can’t drive or disabled people who would find using a gearbox practically impossible. It was an unfair stigma and happily it is not the case today.

Many people are taking automatic driving lessons in Ipswich and when you watch the media, even mainstream news channels and programs like Top Gear or the Grand Tour, automatic cars are always featured.

You will find that all the top cars have automatic versions, and of course all electric and hybrid cars are automatic. The reason is simple, it’s just that they are so easy to drive, autos are the main car in the USA and are as equally as popular in Australia as manual cars.
It’s just the UK which has been lagging behind and largely motivated by a macho image.

When you start learning to drive and take automatic driving lessons in Ipswich you will find you can need 10 lessons fewer than a manual car because you do not have to work the clutch and gears. The clutch is situated next to the brake giving you 3 pedals in total, of course you only have 2 feet! So you press in the clutch, change gear and slowly release the clutch all the time while you regulate the speed. Sounds easy, but it takes a few lessons to get it right without crunching the gears. However if you prefer to take driving lessons in a manual car then we recommend Driving Dreams Driving School in Colchester. They have over 10 years of experience and managed by a very nice man called Bill Meadows.

If there is a downside to learning in an automatic and passing your test in an automatic, your full driving licence only allows you to drive automatic cars and not manuals. However the growing trend for new cars is automatic and with the rise of hybrid and electric cars such as the very sexy Tesla that trend doesn’t look like it’s going to change.

So if you want an easier route to passing your driving test learning to drive in an automatic is exactly what you want to be doing, so pick up the phone and give us a call.
