Learn to drive
in an automatic car

We have both Manual and Automatic vehicles to learn in. Pelican Cater for all Learner Drivers

Some drivers find using a clutch and manually changing gear too much to co-ordinate and often worry about selecting the wrong gear or stalling the car. Driving an automatic car removes all these worries and leaves the driver more time to concentrate on road procedure. With an automatic there is also less physical work to do, ideal if you suffer from arthritis or have any disability. As traffic density increases, especially in town and city driving, there is little wonder that automatic cars are on the increase, the time will soon come when all cars will be automatic, and of course the technology is rapidly advancing with electric vehicles and these are also automatic in the sense that they generally do not have any gears at all. The torque range of electric motors covers the speed range of passenger cars without the need for a gearbox. The torque being highest when moving off gives an electric car very good acceleration. And then there are self driving cars on the horizon.

If you are not sure and would like to discuss the advantages of automatic cars then contact Kath on 07712 770079 or send an email from the link provided.

You can have your lessons from home, work or school, whichever is most convenient for you. Ours is a personal one to one service, there will not be any other pupils in the back of the car. All lessons are for a full hour but if you wish you can have 1.5 hour or 2 hour lessons.

Post Test Lessons and Pass Plus Driver Instruction

We offer post-test lessons for people who may have passed their test but not driven for a while, or people who are still nervous about driving on their own. These refresher lessons are designed to give you extra confidence and reduce your risk of an accident, remember you are most vulnerable until you gain experience on the road.

We also undertake Pass Plus Driver Training in Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield which is available during the first year after passing your driving test. It is run by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency and is designed to take your driving skills to an even higher standard.
