Learning how to driving in a manual car is not right for everyone. There a variety of different reasons why making the switch to an automatic car could prove to be the perfect decision for you and below we have identified the 5 most common.
No 1. – No Clutch Control – Clutch control is one of the most common issues that learner drivers encounter when completing their driving lessons. An ability to master this skill can severely hamper your progression and because an automatic car has no gearbox and therefore no clutch, this issue is removed.
No. 2 – Faster Progression – Because of the removal of the need to master clutch control, automatic cars allow drivers to concentrate on all of the other essential aspects of driving rather than becoming locked in on clutch control. By simplifying the process, driving can be far easier to come to terms with, ensuring faster progression and therefore less money spent on lessons.
No. 3 – Disability – If you have a disability or condition which will limit your ability to use the vehicles clutch, switching your attention to an automatic car can offer the perfect method of completing your lessons.
No. 4 – Eco Friendly – Whilst old automatic transmission cars were notoriously fuel inefficient, their newer counterparts have been fitted with the very latest in fuel saving technology ensuring they are not only more fuel efficient they can also prove to be a more cost effective purchase.
Partly due to the fact that you will not be able to manually select a gear yourself, you will not be able to change the gears as quickly as someone in a manual car. You also can’t perform block gear changes, as automatics will change, in order, up and down through the gears.
Before making the final decision on whether to book driving lessons in an automatic or manual car with us, it is essential to factor in the information that an automatic licence does not permit you to drive a manual car once you have passed your test. This means that when the time comes to buy a car, your choices are limited when compared to their manual transmission counterparts.
