Currently most driving instructors drive manual. This applies to ourselves at Allied Driving Instructors and all driving schools in Ireland. But if you have an automatic and some driving experience, we have the skill and the knowledge to complete you EDT lessons and help you pass the driving test.
As a result availability of the automatic driving school cars is very limited. However it may be possible to supply an automatic for tests, reduced EDT and EDT lessons in Tuam, Co. Galway. Also, Swords, Finglas, Raheny, Tallaght and Crumlin in Dublin. It is not possible to supply an automatic driving school car outside of these areas. Additionally booking in advance is very important.
If you pass your driving test in an automatic you are only licenced to drive automatics. However this is not as much of an issue as it used to be. Almost all hybrid and electric cars are automatic. There for the number of automatics is increasing year on year. Going forward more driving instructors will be getting automatics. Due to this the availability of automatic driving lessons will also increase.
