Automatic Driving Lessons Waterlooville

shutterstock 331721639

Automatic driving lessons over the last 5 years have become so popular, for every 10 manual driving lessons there are now 7 taking automatic driving lessons in Waterlooville, WHY ?  easy,  there is no clutch, no stalling and no rolling back, taking a very large amount of the stress and anxiety out of learning whilst on our road network. Ever sat at a roundabout or on a hill, worrying that your going to stall or roll back and hold traffic up, sound familiar ? not in an automatic car, you come off the brake, press the gas and away you go, so no hesitation or worry. Many clients have struggled with manual driving and turned to automatic, why do you need stress in your life !!! read our blogpost on automatic v manual driving lessons by clicking this link.

Technology is evolving quicker than the world can spin, plus driving technology is improving hugely. If you went back 20 years automatic cars were not very good, very thirsty on fuel and broke down a lot, however spring forwards to the last 10 years and huge changes have happened.  Many automatic cars are better on fuel than manual cars, they do not breakdown, they are stylish and sleek and the price is comparable, in many cases cheaper to run as many insurance companies charge less for insuring automatic cars, as they are less attractive to thieves.

Read what Sophie one of our clients thought about changing to automatic lessons, after her friends said “learning to drive in an automatic is cheating” , she didn’t think so. Driving is 95% thought based ie ‘thinking’ and only 5% from physical effort, so it doesn’t matter what you drive, the ‘thinking’ is the main part. Click this link.

Electric cars and Hybrid vehicles are all the rage now, you will have seen them on the road and in many cases not really heard them, due to their very quiet engines, with less emissions to damage our precious world and environment. In 15 years these will be the only vehicles available to buy, to help protect our planet and lets face it we are all being green friendly. These vehicles are only available in automatic, so it would seem the time to learn in one. At Lendrums we are lucky to have some of the top cars, including electric and hybrid.
