Surrey Driving Force is the leading driving school in the Surrey area and has a well established reputation for providing a wide and varied range of driving tuition.
We strive to cater for all requests and have found that an increasingly popular method of learning to drive is via an automatic car. Unfortunately this does not mean that it will drive itself but if you would like to find out more about the premier standard of automatic driving lessons Guildford has to offer please read on.
What are Automatic Driving Lessons?
Learning to drive in a car with automatic gears can prove to be easier for some people due to the fact that unlike a car with manual gears, there is no clutch pedal to operate. Therefore the left foot is not needed whilst driving at all. Your right foot will be used to operate the accelerator (gas) pedal and the brake pedal, and will take away an awful lot of confusion whilst approaching roundabouts, traffic lights and junctions with an added plus in these situations making it easier to pull away without the fear of stalling.
All of this combines to enable you to concentrate on the task in hand rather than panicking that you are about to make a mistake.You will also be able to start, stop and steer more easily.
Becoming More and More Popular
Everything detailed above ensures that lessons in a car with an automatic gearbox are a very popular choice with learner drivers who find difficulty in getting used to the gears and clutch when driving a manual car. Many pupils who choose automatic lessons will be ready for their driving test earlier than those who choose manual. Automatic driving lessons are especially suited to the mature pupil, someone who needs to gain a driving licence quickly or the disabled.
Are the Lessons Easier?
This is all dependent on why you have been failing your test. If your problems are rooted in car control issues such as gear changing, choosing the correct gear, moving away smoothly, hill starts and clutch control you would benefit from driving an automatic.
However, changing to an automatic will not cure problems due to poor judgement, anticipation, planning and observational skills. If poor planning, judgment etc is down to you concentrating on the gears too much then yes automatics would definitely be worth a try.
It is important to know that if you pass your driving test in a car with an automatic gearbox, you will only be legally allowed to drive an automatic car until you pass a test in a car with a manual gearbox.
