Are you finding it hard to learn to drive? then why not try an automatic, learning to move off, stop and steer is so much easier in an automatic Vehicle. You only need to use your right foot to control the accelerator and footbrake. As there is no clutch your left foot does not need to be used at all. Once your initial gear selection has been made, all subsequet gear changes are made automatically by your vehicles automatic gearbox. Automatic vehicles enable you to concentrate on the more important things when driving, such as planning ahead and the steering. It makes learning to drive much quicker & easier and because there's no clutch, there's no need to worry about stalling the vehicle or trying to find the biting point. Automatic driving lessons are a fast, convenient, and cost effective way to getting your driving license.

Why Automatic Driving Lessons
Driving School Owner Tim Hunt:
Automatic Driving Lessons
Being able to drive a car is essential for everyone these days. Driving gives you freedom and makes it possible to get from A to B at a time to suits you. However, some people struggle with gear changes in manual cars. Whether you have a disability which prevents you from changing gears, or you just don't like repetitive gear changes, automatic driving lessons might be an ideal option. Automatic vehicles are so easy to drive that everyone can learn.
Automatic cars are much simpler to drive since they only have two pedals and no gear stick. The car handles all the gear changes for you. There is no clutch pedal, and simply an accelerator and brake. This makes it much easier to understand how to drive an automatic car. If you struggle to get your head around finding the biting point, then you will love automatic driving lessons because you don't have to worry about any of that. Automatic cars are ideal for city driving which often involves lots of gear changes. Modern automatic cars are also extremely economical and often perform better than manual cars.
Learning to Drive an Automatic Car
Automatic driving lessons aren't that different to a conventional driving lesson. You will still need to learn about the rules of the road, and understand basic things about the vehicle. The only difference is that you don't need to change gear. This should simplify the whole learning experience and allow you to get your licence in record time.
What can you drive on an Automatic Licence?
If you learn to drive at an automatic driving school then you will be permitted to drive any automatic vehicle once you have passed your test. It's important to note that you will not be able to drive manual vehicles on an automatic licence. This doesn't bother most people, but remember you may be unable to borrow friend’s cars if they are manual. Think about this carefully and discuss it with the automatic driving instructors to make sure you are happy with your choices.
If you get an automatic licence then you are able to drive any automatic vehicle up to certain weight limits. This includes both cars and vans which can normally be driven on a standard driving licence.
Who are Automatic Driving Lessons Right for?
Learning to drive an automatic car is ideal for anyone who finds driving a manual car difficult or impossible. It's also perfect for people who only ever plan to drive automatic vehicles. With more and more automatic cars on the road, an automatic licence makes a lot of sense. It's likely that as automatic cars continue to get cheaper, that they will gradually start to replace manual vehicles on the road. It could soon be that almost all vehicles will use automatic transmission
If you want to enjoy the freedom of being able to drive anywhere you want, but don't want to have to think about complicated gear changes then an automatic licence could be perfect for you. Give an automatic driving school a ring today to find out when you can start learning.

News from our Driving School Facebook business Page:
If you scrolled down on the website recently you can be forgiven for thinking you were seeing double or even treble, let us reassure you that you weren't seeing things, because what you saw were the identical Tilley Triplets, from left to right: Bex, Amy & Gemma, their instructor Keith couldn't be more proud of them, and would like to thank them for not trying to trick him by coming to lessons pretending to be one another! We wish them all best wishes and be safe in their Ford KA's.
"I would sincerely recommend Top Class as the best choice for driving lessons!"
"Hi my names Emily, I would just like to say a massive Thank You to Top Class driving school and my driving instructor Shaun especially for being incredibly patient and a fantastic instructor to helping me pass my driving test! I was incredibly nervous on the build up to test day but was constantly reassured which really helped. I did an intensive driving course and I would recommend it to anyone - Shaun was a great instructor who was incredibly flexible with times to suit my university schedule, which took the pressure off completely. I would sincerely recommend Top Class as the best choice for driving lessons! Thanks so much again, I will be recommending to all family and friends!"

"I passed on my first test with the company with only 2 minors"
"Hi I would like to say thank you to Top class driving school and my driving instructor Keith. He is the loveliest driving instructor Going, I had no confidence in myself At all until I drove with Keith. I have a young child so arranging lessons was sometime difficult but Keith always managed to fit me in always got in touch with me about changes. I loved driving the car it was always clean and tidy. Keith is a professional but laid back and that worked well. We could talk and the atmosphere was great and built the confidence I needed. Because of Keith I passed on my first test with the company with only 2 minors, Keith is honest and will tell you when your ready for test he told me and didn't believe him but went with it and he was right for that I will always be grateful."
Kerry Neale, Sittingbourne, Kent.
"He is very patient, chatty, and a great driving instructor..."
"First of all I would like to thank Tim from Topclass Driving School for being such a great driving instructor. Being a 1st time learner I was very nervous. On the 1st lesson Tim put me at ease straight away. He is very patient, chatty, and a great driving instructor. Tim was always reliable and very flexible with lesson times making sure you could get a driving lesson when you needed. He would always work around you and what best suits You. Tim filled me with confidence to drive on the A2 to bluewater ( which I was petrified of ) within a matter of weeks and thats a great achievement. He was always Cool, Calm, & Collective on his approach to teaching. I would always recommend Topclass Driving School with a Topclass Instructor (Tim). I couldn't have done it without your support and confidence in me and I thank you greatly in helping me pass my driving test 1st time I'm definitely going to miss our weekly chats on putting the world to rights."
Claire Rixon, Chatham, Kent.
"A driving instructor I would highly recommend!"
"Before I started driving lessons, I really wasn't sure whether driving was for me or not. I didn't know if after my first lesson I was going to freak out and walk away from driving. Once I met my driving instructor (Keith Babbs) and done my first lesson with him, he filled me with a lot of confidence and I knew that with him as my driving instructor, I would eventually pass my test. 6 months later, I passed my driving test first time with no driving faults at all! For anyone who is looking into driving, Keith Babbs really is the driving instructor you want, he is patient, kind, calm, friendly and very helpful. Believe me when I say that this man puts 110% into teaching you while helping you keep calm and relaxed. Definitely a driving instructor I would highly recommend!!!"
"My driving experience with Top Class driving School was amazing..."
"My driving experience with Top Class driving School was amazing. My instructor was Asha and every driving lesson was enjoyable, she was very thorough and the quality of the lessons were very good. I was taught everything I needed to know and to a good standard. Asha is a very nice driving instructor and I felt no pressure when driving the car. I felt very relaxed and when it came to taking my test I passed with only two minors. Any problems or habits that I picked up were addressed immediately and this allowed me to pass with ease and confidence and i become a much safer driver. Passing my test has opened up many doors of freedom and has made my life much more flexible. I am now able to attend any job interview without the worry of having to use public transport. I would highly recommend using Top Class Driving School to anyone who is wishing to learn to Drive."
James Degen, Gravesend, Kent.
"He made me feel at ease..."
"I passed my driving test on 27th of August with Alan Day. I would like to say a BIG thank you to my instructor Alan, I started learning to drive about a year and a half ago and had no confidence in driving at all. I was a nightmare at times, I was scared of everything, My instructor was really patient with me, never put me in any situation I wasn't ready for, he made me feel at ease. He was flexible with my lessons too as I had to work them around my children. He was honest, reliable and always on time. I never thought I would say this but I passed my driving test 1st time. I still can't believe it now! I really couldn't have done it with out Alan day!"."
Danielle Truelove, Faversham, Kent.
"He works especially on your less strong points to give you the confidence you need to pass..."
"Andy was a brilliant instructor and from the word go had me thinking about how the test format works. I did a week intense course which I can really recommend as you get to grips with the car so quickly allowing you to progress fast! We did a good combination of manoeuvres, city driving, dual carriage ways and general road safety each lesson. Andy's experience shows as he works especially on your less strong points to give you the confidence you need to pass. I learnt to drive in Maidstone and passed my test first go in Herne bay which proves the skills I learnt from Andy can be demonstrated on any road with success!"
Louis Robinson, Maidstone, Kent.
"I took my test on the fifth day of my intensive course, and I passed!..."
"Having failed my driving test a few times when I was younger, I had lost a lot of my confidence in driving and hadn't driven for several years. This year, I wanted to try a new driving school, do an intensive course over a week, and finally pass the test. I contacted Topclass and I was immediately put in touch with Gillian, my instructor in Ipswich. She was really helpful right from the beginning, and we quickly sorted out an intensive course of lessons which fit into my schedule. Over the week Gillian was dedicated, positive, and extremely professional. I was nervous to be driving again, but Gillian was encouraging and kept me calm, and taught me everything I needed to know. I took my test on the fifth day of my intensive course, and I passed! I still feel like Gillian performed a mini-miracle!"
Helena Moon, Ipswich, Suffolk.
"I want to say a huge thank you..."
"I want to say a huge thank you to my now ex-driving instructor Keith Babbs for helping me pass my driving test... FIRST time. When I first joined top class I was a bit nervous as I hadn't had great experiences in the past. And needless to say, I questioned majority of my manoeuvres. Also, I'm sure Keith can back me up when I say this - But I asked so many questions. Nevertheless, in the state I was in Keith managed to get me on the straight and narrow and I finally started to enjoy driving. He made me feel comfortable and at ease. He has bundles of energy and even larger amounts of patience. He has a professional manner in everything he approaches and is very accommodating. I had great fun while learning to drive with Keith, he has a great sense of humour and knows how to crack a joke or three. I would recommend Keith to anyone; he is such a lovely character. This may be the end of my driving lessons, but it won't be the last time we meet."
