Interested in automatic intensive driving lessons in Manchester?

In a city like Manchester, learning in an automatic car can be a real advantage. That’s because stop-start traffic is a common feature of busy urban roads, and driving an automatic car can result in a much smoother driving experience. To learn more, visit our guide to automatic driving lessons in Manchester.

Instead, we keep things simple: you take your lessons at an intensive or semi-intensive pace; whichever works for you. You’ll learn alongside an experienced, fully qualified Manchester driving instructor, and beat the long driving test waiting times by weeks—or even months.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Make sure to add a theory test onto your course if you haven’t passed yet: you’ll need a valid theory pass to take your practical test! Keep revising and use our resources to top up your knowledge.
