If you are considering automaticdriving lessons, we have the service for you. John Lowe Driving has been providingautomatic lessons for some years and the interest in automatic is increasing all the time.
Every type of person is going for automatic for a lot of reasons. Some have got fed up with clutches and gears, some are needing to learn faster, and some just can't see the point in gears and all that involves, when the car will do it for them!
Driving anautomatic car is more straightforward,as there are no gears to change when you alter your speed. The system in the car will sense the need to change gear and will automatically make the changes.
This piece of magic gives you more time to focus on the road ahead, and enables you to keep your hands on the steering wheel most of the time, essential ingredients in road safety.
There is no clutch pedal, so there is no need to master the "biting point," or learn clutch control, so you can get away driving pretty quickly in anautomatic, without the risk of stalling. This can save quite a lot of learning time.
So if you haven't the time to learn manual, or if you are fed up with the clutch and gears, why not learnautomatic? The fully qualified driving instructors at John Lowe Driving are here to help you in this new venture. Your lessons will be in a Honda Jazz, just about one of the easiest cars to drive on the road today

"It's a dream come true."
"Oh! I'm so pleased to pass my driving test in Cheltenham today! It's a dream come true for me, as I've got so many plans and a lot of ambition. This will literally change my life and I can't thank my driving instructor John Lowe enough, he really helped me all the way through and the driving lessons were always good fun. I don't have any worries about driving as I've learnt a lot and have confidence in my driving. It's just great!"
"My driving lessons with John Lowe Driving went really well. I had used other driving schools in the past, with disappointing results, so I contacted John and he took me on in the automatic car. What a difference! The car was lovely to drive, and John was very easy to get along with and his instruction was fun and unfussy. The waiting list for a driving test in Gloucester was quite long, so I found a vacancy in Cheltenham, an area that I don't know too well, but we decided to go for it, and I passed! It's great, I've got my own car now and can't thank John Lowe Driving enough."
"What a great day, I passed my driving test first time with only 1 fault! I've been having my driving lessons with John Lowe Drivingfor only about 5 months and I've passed already. I'm so pleased as my car is ready and waiting and I've got lots planned. With the winter round the corner it will make life much easier getting the kids from place to place and it's all been so quick. Mydriving instructorwas John Lowe, who was always reliable and had some great methods to remember all the details. I really recommend John Lowe Driving. Joanne Mutlow, Gloucester.
"I learnt to drive and passed my driving test years ago in 1991, but I never had the chance to drive a car after passing. Over the years I was just used to not driving so I didn't miss it. I decided to try again recently and contactedJohn Loweof John Lowe Driving and arranged some lessons in anautomatic car, as I wasn't confident enough to drive a manual car. I was very nervous, but I wish I had done it years ago. John was so calm and kind and within a few driving lessons I was coping with everything, with John just giving me directions. I need a few more lessons to regain all my confidence, but John says I will be fine driving on my own. It's wonderful to know I can drive safely!" Gail Wilkins, Gloucester.
"I had never driven before and with a wife and young son, thought it was about time. I had a look round and found John Lowe Driving on Google in the top position. They also offeredautomatic driving lessons,so I didn't need to search too hard. It was very easy to arrange everything, and my driving instructor wasJohn Lowe.John took me through everything bit by bit, and six months later I passed first time. I'm pleased I chose automatic. It really suited me.John Lowe Drivingis a great driving school, always reliable and John is a very nice guy and we had a laugh as well." Linas Mikalauskas, Gloucester.
"I've had my 10th driving lesson today and they are going really well. I started learning in a manual car, years ago, but for one reason and another, it didn't suit me. I decided to try again, this time in automatic, and I wish I had done it ages ago. My driving instructor, John Lowe, has some great systems for learning the manouevres and he says I am really good at them. My driving is improving each lesson and John has taken me to places that used to look really complicated, but I'm coping with everything so far. It's lovely to drive an automatic, and I'm so pleased to have got started again." Joanne Mutlow, Gloucester.
"Today, on my driving lesson, I started amanouevrethat I had a lot of worries about. At the beginning of the lesson, my driving instructor,John Lowe,and me discussed how we should approach the session, and we decided to look at reversing into a parking bay, something that I thought would be really difficult. John explained that it can be very difficult if you use just guesswork, but if you have a system, it's not so hard. John explained his system very simply and talked me through the first attempt, and I reversed into the bay. I then had another try, with him just giving me prompts, and I succeeded again. Next, I tried it independently, and that was the most successful of them all! I'm so pleased to be able to do bay parking, and really pleased that I choseJohn Lowe Driving."
"John Loweis a fantastic driving instructor. I've had driving lessons before with different driving schools and they did not consider me much. It seemed to be all about themselves! One of them even had a dog in the car, and it jumped into the front seats when I was trying to deal with a roundabout. I had heard good things aboutJohn Lowe Driving,so I thought I would give it another try and I'm glad I did. John is friendly and considerate and my confidence is really improving. My driving is much better as well, I'm so pleased with my driving lessons now!" Nicky Jarvis, Gloucester.
"I have had four driving lessons now in the automatic car with John Lowe Driving and it really suits me. I had some driving lessons before in a manual car with a different driving school, but felt that I wasn't getting on too well, so I changed to automatic. My driving instructor, John Lowe, showed me how to reverse into a parking bay today, and I succeeded on my second attempt. He showed me a great system to bay park, which was quite easy to understand, and my car control is much better now. I'm really pleased and we agreed to do more parking next lesson, and to revise and practise roundabouts. It's going really well!" Pauline Dyer, Gloucester.
Customer Review from Cassie Freitas of Cheltenham.
"I had quite a few driving lessons with another driving school and didn't seem to get anywhere, so I lost interest and gave up. My cousin was having lessons with John Lowe Driving and recommended them to me. I contacted them and Lis was so friendly and reassuring that I booked up lessons. My driving instructor is John Loweand I'm getting on so well after a few lessons with him that I can't believe it. John said today that we will probably start reversing next lesson. It's been such a difference, I can't recommend them enough!" Cassie Freitas, Cheltenham.
"I'm so excited to have passed my driving test first time! It will make life so much better, as I will be able to help my partner who has had some serious surgery recently. I'm really pleased I chose John Lowe Driving, as I wanted to learn automatic and John has an automatic car. I had lessons before with a different, national company, but they let me down. My driving instructor, John Lowe was really great and I passed pretty quickly. Thanks, John!"
"I passed my driving test this morning at Gloucester. The weather was terrible, pouring with rain and blowing a gale. I was OK though, because my driving instructor,John Lowe, had shown me all the controls and lights, and we agreed that I would need the aircon on. As well as the test examiner, I had his boss sitting in the back of the car too. I knew this could happen, as John had said it was possible.Thanks, John, you prepared me really well and I can't wait to get driving. I feel really confident!"
"I'm really pleased to have passed my test first time today, and I'm really pleased that John Lowe was my driving instructor. He was always so calm and relaxed, and each lesson we covered something new where possible. He made sure I was fully organised before the test and answered all my many questions, so that I knew what to expect when the day came. It's great that I passed first time and don't have to do the test again. If you want great automatic driving lessons, go to John Lowe Driving."
Customer Review from Emma Hodgkinson-Last of Cheltenham.
"I am so pleased to have passed my driving test today. It will make such a difference to my life, no more bus stops and trudging through the rain to get the children to school. I thank John Lowe for his patience and advice, he has been a fantastic instructor and I wouldrecommend his automatic driving school toanybody."
"On my automatic driving lesson this morning with John Lowe, I reversed around a corner, and reverse parked behind a parked car, with no help at all from John. We agreed the manouevres, I drove to the chosen area and got on with it! I did them each three times and all of them were up to standard. I'm really happy, because I know that I can do them now. John has some great tips to help you remember what to do."
"I had driving lessons with another large company before and the instructor seemed to make it so complicated. He would try to make me do too much each lesson and I got fed up with it.
I wanted to carry on and called John, who had a good reputation and an automatic car, which is what I needed. It's so much better, John takes me through each subject with no rush and when I can do it, we move on to something new. I can do all of the manouevres now and my fear of roundabouts has gone. My driving has really improved, and I'm glad I phoned John Lowe Driving ."
"I had my first driving lessons in Poland, which frightened me sometimes, and when I came to England, I wanted to carry on as the driving seemed more sensible. I decided to learn automatic and got in touch with John Lowe Driving, who got me started again. Automatic has made a big difference and I have got on quite fast, with my test coming up later in November. John has been really helpful and calm, which is good for me."
"I decided to learn automatic, as I just didn't seem to have time to do manual with ayoung family. John Lowe Driving had an automatic for driving lessons, and John is my driving instructor. It has been great and I'm nearly ready for my test. I keep my lessons up and hope to pass this year."
"I started learning to drive with another driving school some years ago in a manual car, but the instructor was always shouting at me. This used to upset me and so I didn't really get on that well and eventually stopped learning. I left it until recently, when I decided to try automatic driving lessons with John Lowe Driving. It really is an amazing difference, John is patient and kind, and I'm getting on really well. We started reversing today and I'm looking forward to passing. John says there is no reason why I should not pass first time."
Customer Review. Louise Hinchcliffe of Gloucester.
" I had held a U.S. licence for 30 years, when we moved back to England, and knew that I would have to pass a U.K. driving test. Where to start? We phoned a few of the national driving schools, who seemed pretty unhelpful. We then tried John Lowe Driving,who had the automatic I was looking for and Lis in the office was so helpful and friendly, that I booked up. John Lowe was my automatic driving instructor, and he took me through each stage and I was ready for my test pretty quickly.
He had some great systems for the reverse manouevres, keeping it simple but effective. The U.K. test is a lot more involved than the U.S. test and a lot more probing. I was very pleased to pass first time. I recommend JohnLowe Driving."
