Looking for automatic driving lessons in Stevenage? if yes then we have it covered. Automatic driving lessons near me, is a question we get asked all the time, yes we do have automatic driving lessons available in Stevenage.

You would expect most customers to be asking for manual lessons, but as time goes by, we are finding that more and more customers are asking for automatic car driving lessons. It has got to the point where now, customers asking for lessons is about fifty fifty. The government has brought forward to 2030 the date that most cars must be electric which means most cars will be automatic.

Why would you learn automatic? There are pros and cons for both manual and automatic cars. The big reason to choose to drive a manual car is if you pass in this type of car you can drive both. 

The big reason to choose an automatic, it is way easier to drive than a manual car. It has not got a clutch pedal which is the hardest pedal to control and you do not have any gears to change if you choose not to, just let the car take the strain.

There are of course many other reasons to choose an automatic, for drivers living in busy areas, the traffic can be slow, which in a manual car can be more demanding.

 For customers who have disabilities, an automatic car may be the answer. With fewer controls to use, physically they are less in demanding to drive.

We find they suit older learners, we know as you get older learning new life skills becomes more difficult. These vehicles can also suit customers who have struggled with a geared car or find coordination difficult. 

Driving any car may seem like a stress however, this is not how it should be. At Bell driving school we have a stress-free learning environment.


Intensive Driving Courses Stevenage

Do you want to pass faster, then an intensive driving course also known as crash course (not the best name!) could be for you. The idea is to cram all your lessons into a short space of time followed by your driving test.

Usually, you would complete between 2 and 4 hours a day, this can be demanding, and it is not for everyone. We would not advise beginners to try this, we think it is better to have some weekly lessons first and then may be an intensive course.

Intensive courses can be a good choice if you find weekly lessons difficult to retain the information given to you or you are struggling to get any confidence from one week to the next then they could really help.

The courses run from just 10 lessons up to 35 depending on your previous experience and your ability. Normally we would take you out for a one-hour assessment lesson. After the assessment we would discuss with you the areas that need work. The instructor would recommend the course they feel would most suit you and give you the best opportunity to pass first time.

Next, we would arrange you a practical driving test and then your lesson would start accordingly. Courses run Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm.
