Automatic Driving Lessons
There IS another way
Are you struggling with poor clutch control?
Do gears scare the life out of you?
Does the ‘biting point’ confuse you?
Are you worried when you stall?
Do you find that you don’t have time to deal with most situations when on the road?
What if we tell you there is a better way?
Would you like us to make your clutch worries disappear?
How would you like us to take away the stress of changing gears?
How would you feel if you didn’t have to set the biting point every time?
How would you feel if we said you will never stall the car again?
Would you like a lot more time to deal with all the situations on the road?
The answer to your problems is an automatic car
At Geoff Capes Driving School, we offer automatic driving lessons in addition to lessons in a manual vehicle. This means you can learn to drive without the added stress of gears –which makes for a much simpler, less stressful experience when learning to drive. You may even pass your test more quickly. Automatic cars are perfect for learners and qualified drivers alike who find gears confusing and stressful.
What is an automatic car?
An automatic car is exactly the same as a manual vehicle, except the function of changing gears is taken care of for you by the car. What this means is that you can concentrate solely on driving – as the only pedals you operate are the accelerator (go) and the brake (stop). This simplifies the process of driving and enables you to concentrate on what’s going on around you, as learning to drive can understandably be a daunting undertaking with lots to think about at first.
You may have driven a manual vehicle before – if so, you’ll know that there is a gearstick between the driver’s seat and passenger seat. If you’ve seen someone drive a manual vehicle, you’ll see that they push their foot down on the clutch pedal and move the gearstick, shifting gear according to which they think they should be in. In these cars, we as the drivers make the decisions – and whilst these become completely natural over time sometimes as is often the case with human error, we make the wrong one! This is when you may stall (in too high a gear) or burn out your engine (driving too fast in too low a gear). You can also cause wear and tear to your gears by grinding them should you not put your foot down on the clutch properly.
Some automatic vehicles are ‘semi-automatic’, which means you can either drive them either way depending on what you prefer.

If I learn to drive in an automatic, can I also drive a manual vehicle once I have passed my test?
If you learn to drive in an automatic, you won’t be able to drive a manual vehicle unless you learn to drive in a manual separately. If you learn to drive in a manual vehicle, then once you have passed your test you are entitled to choose to drive either a manual or automatic car – whichever you prefer. The licence you are issued with if you learn to drive in an automatic entitles you to drive an automatic car only.
However this is rarely an issue for drivers who learn in an automatic, as most makes and models of vehicle these days are available in both variations. It may only be an issue if you are looking for greater freedom of choice in choosing a car, as automatic vehicles tend to be newer and therefore can often be more expensive than an older manual car.
Which car will I learn to drive in?
This is our fantastic automatic car – the Toyota Yaris hybrid. It’s been specially chosen by us to make learning to drive easy, safe and fun. It’s an incredibly smooth drive –if you learn to drive in this car, you’ll be passing your test in no time.
How do I know which to choose?
The decision you make as to whether you’d like to learn in an automatic car or a manual car is completely up to you. If you require more information, you can always call us for advice.
