Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Runcorn?

In an urban area like Runcorn, you might be faced with a lot of stop-start traffic—including while driving on the motorway. If you’re driving a manual car, this may mean you have to make constant gear changes, which can be frustrating, to say the least.

If you’d rather avoid this hassle, then you might want to consider learning in an automatic car. This avoids gear changes, and many drivers find them more suitable to their needs. However, it’s worth noting that automatic cars don’t necessarily increase pass rates, and they definitely won’t bag you a guaranteed pass. For the full pros and cons, check out our comparison of automatic and manual cars.

Once booked, you’ll take your intensive driving course in the Runcorn area. This will consist of one-on-one driving lessons with one of our fleet of high-grade, DVSA-approved instructors, followed by your practical test. Their friendly and focused tuition will help even the most anxious drivers to get prepared in time for their fast-track practical test. This means you’ll avoid the long driving test waiting times, and get a course that’s structured to suit your needs.
