Automatic Driving Lessons


Automatic cars are becoming increasingly popular due to the volume of electric and hybrid vehicles now available. This has lead to a sharp rise in automatic tuition. Learning to drive an automatic car is perfect for anyone who has regular access to an automatic car, gets frustrated or flustered with gears, or will spend a lot of time in stop/start traffic when they have passed. Learning in an automatic can be the quickest way to pass your test.

Our Automatic Lessons 

Automatic driving lessons with Driver Skills North East are tailored to each individual pupils learning style, ensuring the best results for our pupils every time.

All our automatic driving lessons are 2 hours long. This is to ensure fewer briefings and debriefings overall and more practical training which is part of our commitment to passing our students as quickly and safely as possible in addition to saving you money.

First lessons are prepaid which means you have one less thing to remember when it comes to your first lesson. On your first lesson you will need to bring with you your provisional licence and your National Insurance number.

Our Automatic Tuition Cars

Our automatic car is modern, accessible and thoroughly sanitised between each lesson. We currently use a Seat Leon 1.6 TDI  which has an excellent design and has lots of adaptable space within the cockpit. Our automatic instructors are Sarah & Dave. They provide automatic tuition with the Durham City area.
