Manual Driving Lessons
Our manual driving lessons in Sheffield and Rotherham will be designed to suit your specific needs. Having manual driving lessons gives you more control of the gearbox and allows you to drive a wide range of makes and models that only come with manual transmission. It’s worth taking the time to consider which is best for your needs, but whether you choose manual or automatic driving lessons, you can be sure that you will receive the same high standards of tuition from M.A Driving School’s instructors.
Automatic Driving Lessons
If you have maybe tried to learn in a manual car and found it too difficult or you do not have the time or maybe you have a disability that makes driving a manual car difficult try automatic car driving lessons. You will need to bear in mind though; if you pass your test in an automatic car you will not be eligible to drive a manual vehicle unless you do so as a learner driver. If you pass your driving test in a manual vehicle you are eligible to drive both automatic and manual cars.
Taxi Driving Lessons
If you are thinking of beginning a new career as a taxi or private hire driver, then you may need to take a taxi driving test depending on your local authority. The taxi assessment will allow you to work as a private hire or taxi driver and accept fare for paying passengers. A step you should take before committing to the test is to consider taking professional taxi training prior to taking the test.
At the end of the taxi test / assessment you will be asked some questions.
You will be asked 3 highway code questions read up on the Highway Code.
You will be asked 2 Cabology questions – questions about being a taxi driver.
Taxi test cabology questions

Q4: If the tyre pressures of the vehicle you are driving are 35psi at the front and 40psi at the rear, what would you consider the correct pressure for the spare to be?
