Female Driving Instructor in Petts Wood, BR5
It is often the case that learning to drive can be a scary proposition. We sympathise when women students tell us they prefer not to have a male driving instructor. For this reason Lanes allows students to choose female driving instructors. Our female driving instructors are especially patient and understanding. They will not rush their students or judge too harshly. Our female students often feel the pressure is off when they are paired with a female instructor.
Automatic Driving Instructor in Petts Wood, BR5
A good number of our students chose to learn in an automatic car rather than a manual car. Of course manual cars provide more control. Even so, automatic cars are less intimidating for the beginner, and learning is facilitated. Beginners often have problems with stalling the car. Fortunately it is impossible to stall an automatic car. Furthermore, automatic cars are less complicated to learn on, and students have a much easier time.
