Manual & Automatic Driving Lessons


Manual & Automatic Driving Lessons

Learning to drive in a manual car is not for everyone. Maybe you have had a driving lesson in a manual car before and found it too difficult, or maybe you have a disability that stands in the way of changing gears. If you recognise yourself in one of these scenarios, choosing to learn to drive an automatic car will be the right choice for you.

As there is no clutch pedal, an automatic car may be easier to drive, especially on the more congested roads. If you are having difficulties in managing the gears in a manual car, you may find that learning in an automatic car is a ‘faster’ route to your licence. Some people just prefer automatic transmissions for city driving as busy traffic means more frequent gear changes for manual drivers. For example, when it comes to automatic driving lessons, London is spoilt for choice.

Before you decide whether to book driving lessons in an automatic or manual car, it’s important to keep in mind that an automatic licence does not permit you to drive a manual car once you have passed your test. That means that going for an automatic now may limit your choice when buying or renting a car or van in the future.

At RED Driving School we can offer both automatic car driving lessons as well as manual lessons throughout the UK. Whether you choose manual or automatic driving lessons, you can be sure that you will receive the same high standards of tuition from our instructors.
