Automatic Driving Lessons


Automatic cars are becoming increasingly popular due to the increase in electric and hybrid vehicles on the road. This has lead to a sharp rise in automatic tuition. Learning to drive an automatic car is perfect for anyone who doesn’t like gears or will spend a lot of time in stop/start traffic when they have passed. Learning in an automatic is also 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 cars are no more than 2 years old, currently we use a white VW Scirocco, which has an excellent design and has lots of adaptable space in the cockpit for learners of all shapes and sizes.
