Full 1 or 2 Hour Manual Driving Lessons Available with Expert and Friendly Driving Instructors.
Manual Lessons From Only £27.00
Looking for manual driving lessons? Topclass driving school can provide manual driving lessons in Sittingbourne 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.

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 Sittingbourne with the same expertise and professionalism as we do our manual driving lessons.

Tim was a brilliant instructor we could always av a laugh on our warm up drive from Sittingbourne to Gillingham which made learning really easy as I felt a lot less nervous and I could be myself. I struggled a bit with the manoeuvres but Tims way of teaching them was really good and easy to understand. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor Thanks Tim xx
I would like to thank both my driving instructors from Topclass driving school Alan and Andy for getting my driving up to the standard for my test. After mucking up on the first test I was pleased to pass with confidence at the second attempt.
Keith is a fantastic driving instructor and helped me to pass my test first time with only one minor. He is always encouraging and positive, reminding me constantly that the two most dangerous words in the English language are 'what if'. This 'give it a go' approach put me at ease and I was not shouted at when I made mistakes.
My driving progress was checked after every lesson, meaning I was moved along to learning new things and not held back. During lessons I was not constantly asked to pull over on the side of the road for a 'discussion', which allowed me to gain the most from my 1 or 2 hour lessons as I was able to learn through practice. Keith made driving fun and I always looked forward to my lessons.
My driving experience with Top Class driving school was a very positive one. My driving instructor, Alan, made learning to drive quick and simple. Not only did he teach me the necessary skills needed to pass the test, but also how to become a better driver in the long run.
A massive thank you to Top Class and to my amazing driving instructor Keith Babbs!
Keith made every driving lesson enjoyable and made sure I was always at ease, he helped calm my nerves on various occasions, especially on roundabouts! His great sense of humour and his endless patience made my driving experience a pleasure rather than stressful! I would highly recommend!
I would like to thank Alan from Topclass driving school for all the help and guidance while i was doing my driving lessons with him, he is a well mannered and easy going driving instructor and he always made me feel so comfortable thanks again I have freedom at last! Everyday tasks will now be so much easier for me.
Last August, I passed my driving test second time round with my instructor Tim from Top Class driving school. Tim is an excellent instructor, patient and calm, professional and makes you feel at ease with his humour whilst learning. Any areas I was unsure of, he was always able to help. Although I failed my first test on my parallel parking manoeuvre, Tim was very supportive and provided encouragement that did not leave me disheartened. I was more confident when taking my second test and luckily I passed. I would like to say a big thank you to Tim for the support and encouragement you gave me throughout my lessons that leaded to me passing my test. I now happily own a little fiat 500 that makes commuting to and from work in Maidstone much easier. I now have freedom that I did not know I was missing until I could drive. Being able to get in my car and go anywhere is exciting and a new adventure. I would recommend Top Class and especially Tim to anyone who is starting to learn how to drive.
After failing several tests I had lost a lot of confidence and really did think I might never become a driver. I was even a nervous car passenger after being involved in a car accident. When I decided to learn again I contacted Top Class. Unlike some of the other driving schools Tim got back to me straight away.
Tim became my instructor and was always reliable and flexible with lesson times, pick up and drop off points.
Tim is calm, friendly and easy going. From the very first lesson he made me feel settled and relaxed enough to make mistakes and then learn from them. Tim explained points clearly and revisited things when I asked questions! Tim would reflect on the progress I had made and help me think about what else I needed to learn next. Tim had some hints and tips that other instructors hadn’t used and they worked, reversing into a bay finally started to make sense!
Tim was always patient and positive about my ability to be able to drive, even when I thought I was never going to do it. Even on test day he reassured me and still managed to make me laugh with one of his sayings or anecdotes! Tim gave me the technique and the confidence to believe I could pass my test and I did. I am so glad that I contacted Top Class. I would definitely recommend Tim and his driving school.
Hi Alan Trust you are well. Do apologise for late feedback, never got there….Thank you very much for your help and support through this exiting and at the same time stressful journey! You are an incredible gifted driver instructor. Alan had helped me to overcome my fear of driving and this is the most amazing thing! I cannot believe I had passed my driving test first time!! Would strongly recommend Topclass Driving School and Alan his services are truly unique and professional.
I would like to say a massive thank you for my driving instructor Tim Hunt from Topclass Driving School. I started learning to drive with other instructors from several different driving schools and I still never felt very confident with my driving! But when I started learning with Tim from Topclass that all changed, my confidence grew and grew with every driving lesson. Thanks again Tim for all of your patience and finally helping me to pass my driving test! Xxxxx
