Ah Daniella where do we start?

This lovely lass has had her test cancelled by the DVSA so many times that we’ve lost count.

All Dani ever wanted to do was pass her test but the DVSA kept cancelling her!!!

She’s done it today though and with just 3 minors too and she totally conquered her nerves.

Your instructor Laura is extremely proud of you!!!!

As are we all!!!

Well done!!!!!

Well done Josie!!
YOU DID IT !!!!
We’re all VERY proud of you!!!

ADI Emma!!

Thank you for placing your faith and trust in DrewMatic to help guide you to independence!!

Automatic Cars ARE the future, the days of Manual are coming to an end, soon Manual will be seen as the niche and 

MANUAL cars could well disappear from UK roads within 10 years as motorists ditch the gearstick for automatics.

It’s all thanks to the rise in popularity of hybrid and electric models that only come with auto gearboxes.

Brit buyers are already moving towards automatics for improved fuel economy, according to the latest industry data.

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) reveal demand for autos is outstripping the rest of the market by three times.

And last year, more than 600,000 automatics were registered, up 50 per cent from 2013.

Mike Best, from leasing site ContractHireandLeasing.com, said if current trends continue manuals could be extinct in the next decade.

He said: “New automatic transmissions are extremely intelligent. It’s now common to see seven and even nine-speed automatic transmissions.”

“They enable smooth, efficient driving at low revs, therefore burning far less fuel and reducing emissions.

“Manuals often create bad driving habits such as over-revving, riding the clutch and using the wrong gear. These are things that cause wear-and-tear, as well as increase fuel consumption and emissions.”

Philip Nothard, retail and consumer specialist at CAP HPI, said running costs over three years for popular models like the Ford Focus, Nissan Qashqai and BMW 5 Series were now fairly equal regardless of transmission.

He told The Sun Online: “Automatics are becoming a lot more acceptable in the consumer world – it’s no longer a clunky auto box.

“Running costs are negligible and depreciation is better for automatics. Manuals are only really for petrolheads, but the roads are so busy now that it’s easy to have an auto.”

High-end manufacturers such as Ferrari and Porsche have been phasing out the manual option for years, but now more mainstream manufacturers are ditching the stick because of reduced demand.

Steve Gooding, director of the RAC Foundation, said UK drivers were still “doggedly devoted” to traditional stick-shift as just seven per cent of the 1.5million driving tests taken last year were in automatics.

But he added: “Traditionally the automatic was regarded as more expensive to buy and thirstier to run, but the technology has improved massively in recent years to the point where it can actually offer better fuel economy than the manual alternative.

“Interestingly, many automatics give the driver the option of switching between automatic and manual control at the flick of a switch, which might well be the way autonomous driving systems get introduced in the fairly near future.”

Why waste your time and money on old fashioned Manual, when you can do it quickly and so much more easily in an Automatic with DrewMatic.

Laugh And Learn With DrewMatic

It’s an early start at DrewMatic this morning…

But that hasn’t stopped that Nosey Cow from next door staring in the window again!!

Not everyone does Social Media! That’s fine!

We post far more on our Facebook pages than on our website here.

We like to let our prospective customers know that we’re not just about the very serious business of learning to drive, we’re all about the laughter whilst you’re learning.

So we’re going to post some of our funny stuff here too, so that you can see not just what we are, but who we are too.

Our owner is a former Cruise Ship, Overseas Hotel and Working Men’s and Social Clubs Singer and Entertainer and he insists that all of DrewMatic’s Instructors have a really REALLY good sense of humour.

If they can’t make him laugh first, then they don’t even make it past the interview!!!

We want you to not only connect with us, but to feel comfortable with us too, even before you reach out and send that first message or make that first call.

We’re cheeky, we’re funny, plus we’re really good at what we do, and those are just a few of the reasons that we genuinely believe that we are number one for Automatic.

Kirstie Just Passed Her Driving Test.

There’s such a story to this one.

Suffice it to say, this lovely young lady has her HAPPY ending.

You learned it, then you earned it.

Your DrewMatic Automatic Driving Instructor Fran Crawford is incredibly proud of you Kirstie.

You overcame so much.

YOU DID IT KID !!!!!

Automatic Driving Lessons Sunderland

The Future Is Automatic

It’s a shame that in such a modern age that there is still so much negativity about learning to drive in an Automatic.

You literally have to ‘come out’ as an Automatic Driver!

Just what the hell is wrong with some people??

If someone says that they want to learn to ride a motorcycle, do you get the same amount of crap?

Do you heck as like.

Do people say BUT YOU CAN ONLY DRIVE A MOTORBIKE.

NO. They don’t.

So why should folk go on that way about learning to drive in an Automatic?

It’s about choice, not that you’d think that by the way some people go on about it.

DrewMatic have grown so quickly, we’ve been really, really lucky, and now that we’re currently the largest of Automatic providers, many of the established driving schools are now getting Automatic Cars, when just a matter of months ago, several of them were sneering at us.

Once some them saw that we were really making it work they quickly followed suit.

There are even a few of them that are copying even more of what we do!

(Yeah, we’ve seen you!!)

We will always nod our heads towards the guys who started doing this BEFORE we were around, they are the real pioneers.

Especially Mr BK, to whom I owe more than he’ll ever know.

Hybrid, Electric, they’re all Automatic.

The days of Manual domination are done.

Automatic is the future, it’s quicker to learn and pass in an Automatic.

I guess the point of this whole essay is to say, it’s your freedom and it’s your independence not your family or friends’.

Try asking for an Automatic Driving Instructor on Facebook and watch the outcry, do you see the same if someone asks for a Manual Instructor?

No.

Do you see Automatic Drivers going on like some Manual ones do?

No.

People have the right to voice an opinion, whether they agree with you or otherwise, but they should also respect your decision and your choice….

Some of the really vocal ‘clutch supremacists’ should take a look at this.

?????

“bigot

/ˈbɪɡət/

noun

1 a person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions.”

If they’re so against Automatic, then they won’t be wanting a lift once you pass in one will then will they!!

Nicola Passed Her Driving Test

This is a fabulous result for one of our Female Automatic Driving Instructors!!

Laura’s student Nicola Just passed her Automatic Driving Test!!

Nicola chose the relaxed, refined, safe and eeeeeeasyyy way to learn to drive, Nicola chose the future and went Automatic with DrewMatic.

Nicola came to us and didn’t have much confidence and always thought she was getting it wrong when she wasn’t.

Laura worked with Nicola and changed all of that, because that’s what we all do at DrewMatic.

Her confidence grew, things started changing and she smashed it and got a first time pass anyway and even the examiner said it was a lovely drive. She worked hard and totally deserved it.

We are number ONE for Automatic, more new customers choose us for our expertise, experience, passion for Automatic, plain talking, humorous, holistic and bespoke approach to driver training.

Why choose anyone else?

This is a superb first time pass for Toni and her instructor Fran with only 4 minors too.

Absolutely over the moon for her.

Why YOU Should Learn Automatic It’s YOUR Licence YOUR Choice

In the not too distant past, coming out as Gay or bringing home a partner with a different colour skin to yours, was a terrifying experience for many.

Intolerance and ignorance were rife.

Thankfully, those things are now welcomed, cherished and embraced, and rightfully so!

Friends and Family welcome your choice, welcome your decision, they’re so supportive, it’s amazing!!

Just try ‘coming out’ as someone who wants to drive an Automatic though….

The howls and wails of derision, dismay, disappointment and disgust are, quite often, not only bordering upon the ridiculous, but not all together unlike the reactions you used to see ‘coming out’ as per above!

Just what the hell is wrong with people??

But, but you’ll only be able to drive an Automatic, yeah, so effing what- if you pass your test on a motorbike you can only ride a motorbike- does anyone say anything about that? No, they don’t.

But, but control…

But, but more fun…..

But, but….. Bollocks man.

Do Automatic Drivers scoff and mock Manual Drivers?

No, of course not, so why should it be the other way around!???

Is a Manual driver in some way superior to an Automatic Driver?

Are they shite!!!!!

Though you’d not think it the way some go on about it !!!!

The driving test is EXACTLY the same.

Learning to drive in an Automatic is safe, it’s EASY, it’s quicker and it’s a more refined and relaxed experience.

So ask yourself these questions;

Is it your family or your friends’ freedom?

Are they your family or your friends’ driving lessons?

Is it your family or your friends’ driving test?

Is it your family or your friends’ freedom or independence?

Is it your family or your friends’ choice?

Or are they all YOUR choices?

It’s your licence it’s your freedom, it’s your hard earned money and it’s your independence.

According to government statistics, year on year, Automatic Driving Tests aren’t just increasing here and there, but are increasing by thousands EVERYWHERE as more and more trainee drivers embrace the future with Automatic.

The number of cars being sold with automatic gearboxes is rising in the UK as British drivers fall out of love with the trusty manual.

Figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that the number of cars with auto gearboxes has risen by over 70 per cent since 2007. A total of 8.4 million automatic cars are now on Britain’s roads.

In 2017, 40 per cent of all news cars were fitted with an automatic gearbox, including CVT and ‘semi-automatic’ varieties. It’s thought that consumers enjoy the relative ease with which automatic cars are operated.

While manual gearboxes are still the most numerous form of transmission, their popularity has been steadily declining as the quality and availability of automatics has risen.

“Consumers are enjoying greater freedom and mobility than ever before, which along with greater reliability and improved fuel efficiency, make owning a car a more attractive and affordable option for millions of people. With every new model launched, more motorists are benefiting from more advanced technology.

“From innovative safety systems such as autonomous emergency braking and adaptive speed control, to state-of-the-art infotainment and comfort features, including heads-up navigation, heated seats and air-con, in-car WiFi and greater connectivity.”

It’s about choice, it’s about YOUR choice.

Automatic Vehicles are everywhere and are available to suit every budget.

So which method and which driving school are YOU going to choose?

You’re A Good, Safe, Driver – But You’ve No Licence – We Can Help You Fix That

It’s better to drive with a licence than without one.

Some of you have struggled to pass your test and not succeeded and chosen to risk heavy fines or even imprisonment for not having a license, insurance, car tax or driving cars that don’t meet legal requirements.

All it takes is one snitch with a grudge to make a phone call to the authorities and, before you know it, your car is on a low loader, you’re walking home and the court date is in the post.

Drewmatic aren’t judgemental but we can help you achieve that one thing that makes you a good, safe, legal driver – a full license.

You might have the skills already and just need that guidance to achieve your goal.

Give us a call.

We can assess you and put you back in the driving seat for real. It’ll cost you a phone call.

Not making the call, what might that cost you?

Automatic Future Nobody will be driving manual cars in 10 years..

As motorists shun gearsticks for automatics, the era of changing gear could be coming to an end as drivers opt for electric cars and hybrids with automatic gearboxes.

MANUAL cars could disappear from UK roads within 10 years as motorists ditch the gearstick for automatics.

The need for clutch control could be lost thanks to the rise in popularity of hybrid and electric models that only come with auto gearboxes.

Driverless cars won’t feature manual gears either meaning learners might never stall embarrassingly at the lights or have to battle with the dreaded hill start again.

And Brit buyers are already moving towards automatics for improved fuel economy, according to the latest industry data.

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) reveal demand for autos is outstripping the rest of the market by three times.

And last year, more than 600,000 automatics were registered, up 50 per cent from 2013.

Mike Best, from leasing site ContractHireandLeasing.com, said if current trends continue manuals could be extinct in the next decade.

He said: “New automatic transmissions are extremely intelligent. “

“It’s now common to see seven and even nine-speed automatic transmissions.”

“They enable smooth, efficient driving at low revs, therefore burning far less fuel and reducing emissions.

“Manuals often create bad driving habits such as over-revving, riding the clutch and using the wrong gear. These are things that cause wear-and-tear, as well as increase fuel consumption and emissions.”

Philip Nothard, retail and consumer specialist at CAP HPI, said running costs over three years for popular models like the Ford Focus, Nissan Qashqai and BMW 5 Series were now fairly equal regardless of transmission.

“Automatics are becoming a lot more acceptable in the consumer world – it’s no longer a clunky auto box.

“Running costs are negligible and depreciation is better for automatics. Manuals are only really for petrolheads who like to drive the car but the roads are so busy now that it’s easy to have an auto.”

High-end manufacturers such as Ferrari and Porsche have been phasing out the manual option for years, but now more mainstream manufacturers are ditching the stick because of reduced demand.

Steve Gooding, director of the RAC Foundation, said UK drivers were still “doggedly devoted” to traditional stick-shift as just seven per cent of the 1.5million driving tests taken last year were in automatics.

But he added: “Traditionally the automatic was regarded as more expensive to buy and thirstier to run, but the technology has improved massively in recent years to the point where it can actually offer better fuel economy than the manual alternative.

“Interestingly, many automatics give the driver the option of switching between automatic and manual control at the flick of a switch, which might well be the way autonomous driving systems get introduced in the fairly near future.”

Pass In An Automatic

Have you recently told your family and friends that you’re learning to drive, or are thinking about learning to drive, in an Automatic and have they recoiled in utter disgust and disbelief?

Did they look at you like you’d just deliberately infected yourself with an horrific, disfiguring disease?

It’s fucking insane isn’t it.

Some of the reactions you get?

They actually make you feel ashamed.

THEY are the ignorant ones.

We hear this story all too often at DrewMatic. But you’re amongst friends here!

Recently, I was shown an article in a National Newspaper that was doing just that.

They were quite clever about it, they start by saying ‘most’ people drive Manual and that it was the ‘normal’ way of learning to drive.

See what they did there? 

Are you being ‘subliminally’ dehumanised?

We all like to be part of the ‘most’ and ‘normal’ crowd don’t we?

Nobody likes to be part of the ‘less’ ‘laughed at’ and ‘abnormal’ crowd.

But there you have it, less than a paragraph in to the article and they’ve already made you feel lesser and abnormal. 

Clever eh?

I wonder who sponsored that article?

The list goes on, they say “most people pick it up after a few hours.”

Again, they’re trying to make you feel less than normal, OR, if you’ve never driven before, but were thinking about the Automatic Route that it’ll only take you a few extra hours.

I doubt somehow the journalist writing the article, was, is, or ever has been an Approved Driving Instructor, so really, how would he know?

Infact, they go to great lengths to dissuade you from having anything at all to do with an Automatic!!

They say if you pass in an Automatic then your licence will be called “A Category B Automatic Licence.”

Errrmmmmm-  If you pass in a Manual it will also be called a “A Category B Manual Licence”

In reality, on the back of the licence you have to look VERY closely to be able to differentiate whether or not your licence is Manual or Automatic.

Automatic Driving Lessons

Can YOU tell if this is Manual Or Automatic?

Let me explain, see in column 12 there? There’d be a “78.”

Hardly a CATEGORY B AUTOMATIC LICENCE mark of shame emblazoned across it is there?

Do you see now what they’re doing? They’re making you feel, well, shit about driving an Automatic.

Fake news finery at it’s best, EVEN when it’s non political !!!

It makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Whom it was that paid them to write that article?

In the USA they’ve been driving Automatic for DECADES.

Almost every car now in the UK is available in the Automatic Variant.

Year on year the number of people taking their test in an Automatic is increasing.

With the onset of Electric, Hybrid and Hydrogen Fuel Cell powered vehicles ( they’re ALL Automatic by the way) and the push to make cars non polluting, the industry is realising that Automatic IS the future.

Most Driving Instructors, some grudgingly, will tell you that even they can see how things are turning Automatic.

There will always be a choice for anything that we do in life. 

Learning to drive is one of them.

THE MYTHS AND REALITY

“Autos are more expensive to buy”
Second hand car prices are about the same and autos will have less maintenance problems as the engines and transmission will not have been worked so hard.

“They’re more expensive to maintain”
Autos are less likely to go wrong because they have less moving parts and often have a fluid clutch.

“Garages can’t repair them!”
This is just nonsense. Most garages are equipped to deal with repairing automatics

“They use more fuel”
We find people use more fuel in a manual drive car because the auto will change gear for you at the best time.

“I’ve heard Autos are bad in bad weather conditions”
New developments mean modern autos allow you to have mush more input and can control which gears are selected. 
Most will allow you select different power settings like Sport or Normal or Smooth or Snow/Ice especially for icy conditions as well as being able to prevent the auto changing gear if conditions dictate. 
But for most of normal driving we just select D and off we go.
There are now triptronic automatics where you can either let the auto decide to change gear for you or you can take charge and change gear yourself at the touch of a finger.
 

The possibilities and options have never been greater and passing in an automatic now means you can also drive an automatic AND change gears if you want to, as well. So you actually have more choice than someone who drives a manual drive car.

“I like to change gear and be more in control of what gear I’m in”

Have you seen a modern automatic? 
There are so many varieties the mind boggles. 
Say you choose an Auto with triptronic or Semi Automatic gearbox.

“BUT BUT….. YOU CAN ONLY DRIVE AN AUTOMATIC.”

Yep, if that’s all YOU want to drive, then why not?? If you pass your test on a Motorcycle, all you can drive/ride is, erm, MOTORCYCLES.

BUT BUT….. IT’S REALLY HARD TO FIND AN AUTOMATIC. 

You aren’t looking hard enough then, try Autotrader, Gumtree, Local Garages, amongst others. 

BUT BUT…. The list goes on.

Auto or manual?

You decide.

If you’re so determined to be in control, then get a semi automatic, you can have the best of both worlds in that you can leave it totally automatic or have it change gear at the touch of the gear lever.

You can drive a semi automatic on an automatic licence by the way.

So there you go, driving an auto these days means you can get on the road faster, need less lessons, enjoy your driving and be safer. You can let the car do the gears or do them yourself. 

If you hire a car abroad you’ll find more automatics than ever, just try and get a manual car in the USA!

Manual cars are OLD technology.

Automatics are becoming even more popular now, especially as our roads become more and more congested and the number of hazards we have to deal with increase daily. The money you save on lessons could be better spent on having fun or maybe buying a better automatic when you pass.

SOME OF THE PLUS POINTS

There’s a lot of them but, most of all, you can be on the road and driving MUCH quicker in an auto. 
Things that seemed insurmountable problems in a manual are a breeze in an auto

Once you pass your test then you will have learned already what we call the “head skills” of driving and if you want to change over and take a manual car test later then it would be a mere formality where you would most likely need no extra tuition

Ask any of  the 100’s of students who have passed with DrewMatic in the last 3 years if they’ve experienced any of the above.

They’ll all tell you they are now in better jobs, more independent, happier and they all did it way WAY faster in an Automatic. 

But what do they know eh? 

Cos your Partner….Knows better.

Cos Your Family….Know better.

Cos Friends…..Know better.

Really? Do they???

Pass in an Automatic and they’ll still beg you for a lift.
Pass in an Automatic and they’ll still ask you for favours.

Tell them to either get behind you or get out of your way because YOU are going Automatic.


If all that you want to do is drive- then do it in an Automatic.

It’s quicker, it easier, it’s arguably safer, it’s less stressful, it’s more fuel efficient AND it’s the future.

Tasha Passed!!
