GGO Driving School is a well-known Cambridgeshire & West Norfolk driving school. We approach driver education in a way that puts you in command, offering lessons throughout Wisbech and the surrounding areas.
We at GGO Driving School take pleasure in the exceptionally high first-time pass rates that our pupils achieve. Although patience is important to learning, we also pay close attention to the quality of lessons to ensure that you can drive safely and efficiently as soon as possible.
In the United Kingdom, novice drivers generally learn in a manual car, with around 40,000 of the 720,000 driving tests taken each year for an automatic license.
A spokesman for the Admiral Insurance pricing team said: "In general, it’s typically cheaper to insure a manual car, as most automatic equivalents tend to be in a higher risk group to insure."
Manual cars tend to use less fuel, meaning they cost less to run. Typically, a manual car will also be cheaper to buy, compared to an automatic vehicle.
A manual gearbox allows you to have more control over the vehicle since you select which gear to use. In winter conditions, this can be quite advantageous.

In your first session, you'll most probably be introduced to a few of the fundamentals, such as setting your seat and mirrors correctly. You'll also learn how to use the handbrake, gears, and, of course, clutch control to secure and steer the car. Nerves are normal in the first driving lesson; don't worry!
While the fundamentals are similar for most people in their first practical driving lesson, what follows after that is bound to be different for everyone, as everyone learns at a different pace, and some students may have prior driving experience.
It's an exciting feeling when you receive your provisional license in the post. Unfortunately, though, it's not valid until your 17th birthday, however, you can still book driving lessons in advance. Just make sure they fall on or after your birthday so you can start driving legally! Make sure to take your license with you to your first driving lesson so your instructor can confirm your eligibility.
The government website states that you do not have to pass your theory test before taking driving lessons, but you must pass the test before taking your practical test. However, many driving instructors encourage their students to start studying for the theory test either before or while they are learning with them. This can help students familiarise themselves with road markings, signs, and the right of way, but it is not usually required. To apply for a provisional driving licence, you can do so online on the government website.
