Automatic is becoming more and more prominent with every passing day. We also offer driving lessons in automatic transmission vehicles for students that are interested in driving to drive automatic only.
The most favoured transmission in the UK, and indeed Europe - our teachers are experts in teaching new drivers clutch control and how to shift smoothly to make the most out of a manual transmission.
Understandably, a lot of drivers are nervous when they first pass. Our instructors do their best to ensure that you have a comfortable, pleasant experience and that you enjoy your time driving.
Our fees are fair and not excessive, as you’d expect from the instructor industry

Despite the amount of Automatic sales rising, a full manual, unrestricted driving license is the primary choice for most students. 94% of all new passes are on full licenses, as opposed to solely an automatic.
At Ahmed driving school, we teach you all the required techniques and skills you need to successfully drive a manual vehicle, including clutch control and how to shift gears properly, as well as the regular skills in a driving test.
We’re able to teach drivers of all abilities, whether you have already practiced and learnt the principles behind a manual and using the clutch, or if you’re a new driver.
Can I drive automatic after I pass?
If you have an manual license, you will be legally qualified to drive cars with all transmisions – manual, automatic, semi automatic, sequential, etcetera, with no restriction.
Conversely, with an automatic license you will not be allowed to drive a manual.
Automatic, or manual?
It is completely down to preference; automatics are more relaxing to drive, and if you travel a lot, particularly in heavy traffic, it can stop your foot and leg becoming fatigued from constantly depressing a clutch.
Drivers tend to prefer manuals due to having more control over the car, but automatics have become a lot more refined over the years, and become a lot better at selecting the optimum gear for the situation.
