It’s important to remember that with a manual licence you’ll be able to drive both manual and automatic cars once you’ve passed your test (the reverse does not apply with an automatic licence). That means that choosing to learn to drive a manual will give you more options when buying or renting a vehicle. Another benefit to getting your manual licence is that manual transmission cars tend to be cheaper than the automatic version of the same make, and, as the mechanism is less complicated, they can often be more reliable. Lastly, if you’re planning to do a lot of driving in icy or snowy conditions, then a manual car can offer greater control and so perform better when roads are slippery or dangerous.
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 RED’s instructors.
