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, taking an automatic test could be a better choice.
As there is no clutch pedal, an automatic car may be easier to drive – especially on more congested city roads – and if you are having difficulties managing the gears in a manual car, you may find that taking automatic driving lessons 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.
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.
