Manual and automatic driving lessons

Whether you’re after manual or automatic driving lessons in Southend-on-Sea, we’ve got your back.

Choosing between manual and automatic driving lessons can be tricky. Before you make your decision, it’s important to know that an automatic driving licence will only qualify you to drive an automatic car, whereas a manual licence will qualify you to drive either transmission. Automatic lessons also tend to be pricier as there are fewer instructors around and so a greater demand.
