"I chose Lanes Driving School based on recommendations from 2 friends. Bill was the instructor allocated to me and I couldn’t be happier about that. I had put off learning to drive for 20 years due to fear of failure! Straight away Bill put me at ease, made me feel confident, was clear and supportive about my strengths and weaknesses and he was always calm and patient. Bill is extremely kind, intelligent and funny and I always enjoyed my lessons and chatting with him! I am now feeling confident about my upcoming test (and I never thought I would say that)!) I’m happy I chose Lanes and I thank Bill immensely for getting me to this stage! 😊"

While this may be true, automatic cars are certainly less daunting for the beginner. Beginners always have a problem with inadvertently stalling their cars. They will be relieved to hear that automatic cars are impossible to stall. Automatic cars provide an easier experience for the beginner and progress will often be easier.
