The training car is a


Renault Clio

Our training car is the latest model Renault Clio which is a fantastic car to drive, its fitted with air conditioning, satellite navigation, bluetooth technology and also dual controls for your safety.
Our pupils really enjoy driving this model of car so much that many of them have gone out and bought one immediately after passing their driving test.


Why automatic?

Learning in an automatic car is ideal for pupils who wish to learn in a much easier way, for example, you don't have to worry about the gears or clutch control. It might be the perfect choice for people who are quite nervous about learning to drive, or for pupils who have tried driving a manual but found things much too difficult. In these  circumstances learning in an automatic car can be such a lot easier, as an example you will never stall in an automatic and this in itself will give you much more confidence and time to concentrate on all the other skills required in driving.


Automatic Driving Lessons

Your Driving Lessons
Our automatic driving lessons in Preston can be taken in either one, one and a half or in two hour slots. It can be arranged for you to be picked up or dropped off at either your home, work or college. You will need to bring your provisional licence with you only on your very first lesson and also on the day of your driving test. 


Automatic Driving Tests

Your Theory Test
The theory test is in two sections. The first test is a multiple choice test and the second part is called the hazard perception test. You will be shown 50 questions where you need to get a minimum of 43 answers correct.

The Hazard Perception Test
The second part is the hazard perception test. You will be shown 14 video clips of which there will be 15 hazards that you would need to identify.

Don't worry as we can explain more about your theory test while you are having automatic lessons with us.


Your Driving Test

Your driving test will last about 40 - 45 minutes. Throughout your driving test you will need to show your examiner that you can drive in a safe way as if you were driving on your own.

Your examiner will give you very clear route directions and instructions around the route. The test route will cover a variety of junctions and hazards which you will be expected to deal with safely. You will also be asked to perform one of the set control manoeuvres, this could be to pull up on the right hand side of the road then reverse back a couple of car lengths, a reverse around a stationary car, a reverse into a parking bay or to drive forward into a parking bay and then reverse back out of it. You could also be asked to perform an emergency stop although these are not necessarily tested on every test. At a certain time during the test your examiner will ask you to pull up at a safe location and then explain to you that you will now need to show how you can drive independently for about 20 minutes, this could be by following a series of directions or direct from a sat nav.


 Just A Few 
From Happy Pupils

Taz from Preston
After taking lessons from several other automatic instructors in Preston I was recommended to call Riz at Preston Driving School. He put my nerves at ease, always stayed calm and gave 100% attention to me. Riz supported me through my journey and re-assured me on my progress. Not only is he a fantastic instructor, he makes the lesson enjoyable. If your thinking about taking lessons with him, I can personally guarantee you will succeed! This isn't a review for the sake of reviews, this is a genuine attempt to explain my gratitude. Thanks again Riz for assisting me in opening doors of opportunities for me. Your the man
