The Automatic Market 

Technology driven society 
Over the last 20 years or so we have become a "technology driven" society using new technology to help improve our lives by doing things faster and making life easier. Even 60 year olds are now using the internet and becoming more technology conscious. From this perspective there is now much less resistance to owning and driving an automatic car from the driving public, and an understanding that it's not only easier to learn to drive in an automatic, but also that it is generally more suitable for modern road traffic conditions. 
The automotive industry points the way 
The automative industry has developed new technologies including Hybrid and electrically powered cars which are all automatic vehicles. Currently nearly all new taxis, buses and HGV's are also automatic. Looking to the future the next generation of "driverless" cars will also be automatic. This is a clear indication that in the not too distant future most vehicles on the road will be automatic. 
Compelling evidence 
This compelling evidence makes it absolutely clear that the historical reluctance to embrace automatic technology by the driving public is now a thing of the past, and society has now accepted it as a mainstream technology and is a major factor in fueling the demand for automatic lessons. 

Automatic Market Growth 

Dramatic increase in the sales of automatic cars 
The Society of Motor Manufacturers reported that 25% of all new car sales in 2015 were automatic and is likely to increase to 32% in 2017. Clearly the number of families who now own an automatic has increased dramatically in recent years influencing peoples perception of the ease and speed of learning, and the ease of use that automatic provides. 
Automatic cars have become the norm 
This means that family members of all ages are used to being driven in an automatic, and there is no longer the same "stigma" attached to driving or owning an automatic car. As a result of the technology revolution and the demand for automatic cars, we are now seeing more and more pupils opting to take their test in an automatic car.  
More demand on our website and incoming phone calls 
We see the evidence every day in the increasing number of hits on our website and the number of phone calls we get enquiring about automatic lessons. We are turning away so much work away that we could easily take on another 40 ADI's in towns and cities around the country and keep them fully booked, simply based on the amount of work we currently turn away each week.
