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.
