Manual and automatic driving lessons

Manual or automatic? We offer both in North London so it’s up to you!

It’s advisable to spend some time thinking about which type of driving lessons you’d like to take before booking a driving lesson with a North London based Midrive driving instructor.

North London has a lot of slow moving traffic and some people might find it easier to negotiate this by driving in an automatic car. This is because compared to a manual car, the gear changes will be taken care of and there will be slightly less to remember.

However, with an automatic licence you’ll only be qualified to drive an automatic car. A manual licence offers more flexibility as it qualifies you to drive either type of vehicle, and on top of this lessons are cheaper!
