I cannot recommend 2nd2None highly enough. Gareth, my instructor, has been nothing short of a miracle worker. He is such a calm presence and so knowledgeable. Gareth doesn't teach you just to pass the test, he ensures you are a confident driver. We have been all over Bristol and surroundings, getting on different roads and dealing with new challenges. Absolutely delighted to have passed first time today at Kingswood and looking forward to a few motorway lessons with Gareth soon! Thank you so much to Gareth and the whole team.

Bristol automatic driving lessons

Automatic driving lessons are available in Bristol with our local driving instructor team.

Automatic driving lessons can be ideal for anyone that struggles with changing gear, someone that finds driving a very complex task (even after a fair few lessons, when for most of us the whole clutch-gear-biting point thing has switched to autopilot mode)

Automatic Driving Lessons in Bristol will take away the stress of learning to drive and make the whole experience more relaxing and enjoyable, learning in an automatic car really can make a massive difference.

Benefits of learning to drive an automatic car

Driving an automatic car has definite benefits, too. The car changes gear for you at the appropriate time, so you’ll rarely over-rev an automatic car; and although your fuel consumption may be slightly less economical than a manual car, overall it can make a worthwhile difference in the level of effort required when driving on longer journeys.

Learning to drive in the extremely busy streets of Bristol can be very exhausting and troublesome for a lot of learner drivers, driving an Automatic car can make learning to drive a lot less stressful as all you need to do is control the brake and the accelerator. And with all the stop start required from driving the Bristol streets it can really make a positive difference to your journey. 

And because learning to drive in an automtic car is easier it should mean that you will need less hours to reach the driving test stanard than you would with a conventional gear box and clutch which will save you money on lerning to drive.

Bristol Automatic Driving Lessons

We often find this can also lead to you needing less overall driving lessons as you will pick up driving a lot quicker which can save you both time and money.

However, there are several significant downsides to driving an automatic car. If you take your driving test in an automatic car, you’re not qualified to drive a manual car. If, on the other hand, you pass your test in a manual, you are allowed to drive an automatic.

There are no real issues with automatic lessons in themselves: you learn the same things (mostly) and are examined on the same aspects of driving in your practical test. The difference comes when you actually pass, and only you will know if those differences are going to matter.

Gareth has been a wonderful instructor and had more faith in me than I did in myself, and at 52 (and extremely nervous) I passed first time this afternoon at the Southmead Test Centre in Bristol. 
Thank you Gareth and 2nd3none for such a fantastic service. x

Kelly Parslow

My driving instructor was Adam Butler. I've done an 18 hour intense course with Adam from 2nd to none, I was very anxious about driving, as soon as I met him he made me feel at ease I would highly recommend him to anybody, I just passed my practical driving test with 2 minors. He concentrated on my weaknesses and made me so much more confident on the road. I can't thank him enough!! Thank you Adam!!!

I chose this driving school because the intensive course suited my needs with availability.

Lewis Pennycott

My intensive course was long and, for a lack of better words, intense. However, with Adam's honest criticism and feedback, I was able to conquer my anxieties and pass my test! It was tough, but I'm glad I succeeded. Adam has been nothing but the best.

Why Did You Choose Our Driving School For Your Driving Lessons: I was recommended this course by many of my friends who had also passed using 2nd2none.

Is There Anything We Could Of Done Better: Nothing that springs to mind, this course has been great.

I can't thank Paul Shackleton enough for all the help and encouragement he has given me during this driving course. I started off terrified behind the wheel and concerned because of my limited mobility. But Paul is a great teacher who was patient with me yet pushed me when I needed to be pushed. He taught me the skills and gave me the confidence I needed to pass first time.

Thanks again Paul.
