Manual Driving Lessons Gravesend, Kent

A Professional and Affordable Driving School
Full 1 or 2 Hour Manual Driving Lessons Available with Expert and Friendly Driving Instructors.
Manual Lessons From Only £29.00 / Hour

Looking for manual driving lessons? Topclass driving school can provide manual driving lessons in Gravesend and most of the major towns in Kent. Manual lessons are by far the most popular way to learn to drive. If you choose to learn to drive in a manual car you will need to learn how to select the gears by coordinating between the clutch pedal and the gear lever to select the right gear at the right time.

There are many benefits to choosing manual lessons, you will be able to drive not only manual but also automatic cars once you’ve passed your driving test. Another benefit is that manual cars are normally a little cheaper to buy and run than automatic and also tend to give better fuel economy. It’s worth taking a bit of time to think about which option is best for you but whatever you choose, you can be sure you will receive the same high standard of driving tuition from your Topclass driving instructor.

All your manual driving lessons will be fully structured and planned according to your individual learning ability, this way you will never be put in a position that you feel you can’t handle. At first you will be given complete talk through instruction until you feel able to drive more independently, then you will be given less instruction as you progress, eventually reaching full independence and test readiness.

Whether you choose to learn to drive in manual or automatic, as you come close to test standard your driving instructor may offer you a 'mock' driving test. This will be conducted by one of our own manual driving instructors and will help to give you an idea of what to expect on test day and give you a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses when you’re put under driving test conditions.

Manual Driving Lessons

Looking for Manual Driving Lessons?  We offer a choice of full one or two-hour manual driving lessons with pick up from home, work or college with expert and friendly driving Instructors.

Automatic Driving Lessons

Dont Struggle With Gears and Clutch! Go Automatic.
Full 1 or 2 Hour Automatic Driving Lessons Available With Expert and Friendly Driving Instructors
Automatic Lessons From Only £31.00 / Hour

If it’s an automatic driving school in Gravesend you need, then look no further. We can also provide you with an automatic driving Instructor too.

Automatic cars make learning to drive a lot less stressful and are a quicker & easier option to learning to drive. Because there's no clutch, there's no need to be anxious or worried about stalling, or finding the biting point. You only need to select your gear once, this is normally when the vehicle is stationary and all other gear changes will be carried out by your cars Automatic gearbox.

Automatic driving lessons are a faster and easier way to attaining a driving license. Driving an automatic gives you more time to concentrate on things such as the forward planning and steering of the vehicle and you only need to use your right foot for the control of the accelerator or footbrake.

Lots of people find driving an automatic quicker, easier, and more comfortable after having tried manual driving lessons first. Whatever the reason for choosing to learn to drive in an automatic we can offer you automatic driving lessons in Gravesend with the same expertise and professionalism as we do our manual driving lessons.

However, remember to take into consideration that if you decide to learn to drive in an automatic vehicle that you will be restricted to driving an automatic vehicle once you have passed your driving test.

If you’re searching for driving lessons near me, driving instructors near me or driving schools near me, you will find there are many to choose from and driving lesson prices and offers will vary from school to school.

“I came to TJ in need of building up my confidence as a driver in the UK. He was full of wonderful tips and acronyms and was really easy to chat to. His feedback and advice were invaluable in my progress as a driver. Being Canadian round-a-bouts were the hardest thing and now I feel so much more confident and able to read the situations in order to conquer them. His wonderful teaching was the reason I was able to pass my test as a confident driver. Thank you so much for everything!!

"I highly recommend anyone who wishes to have driving lessons to be taught by the company top class and have the instructor Tim Hunt, who is a very nice guy, calm and not strict (like I hear from other people who have people who are strict and do not like them). He is also easy to get along with and nice to chat to. He is also a very good driving instructor who has a lot of experience and helps you with all the manoeuvres to help you do them easily. He also has confidence in you while you are driving which makes yourself have confidence so you feel safe and happy driving. Overall I highly recommend that anyone wanting to drive have Tim Hunt as your instructor."

"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."
