Beechwood Beechwood automatic driving lessons another student passedIt is not necessarily easier to learn how to drive an automatic car, it all depends on what you are dealing with. It won’t make much of a difference to you if you have a common issue like observation. Driving in an automatic is a good option if your problems with clutch control or gear changing. It is much easier to learn how to drive in urban areas that are jam-packed with traffic. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. This can be difficult for both experienced drivers and learner drivers. You can take your driving test in an automatic car, eliminating the possibility of the car stalling and any clutch control problems. You might have difficulty managing the gears of a manual car. If this is the case, it might be easier to learn to drive in an automatic car.

Is There A Downside To Driving An Automatic Car?

Automatic cars are more costly to purchase, maintain and run than manual cars. This is why automatic driving lessons are more expensive than manual driving lessons. You should also remember that learning to drive and passing your test in an automatic does not allow you to drive a manual vehicle. Your licence will allow both if you pass your manual driving test. This means that if you are taking your driving test in an automatic car, it may limit your options when renting or buying a car in the future. In the event that you decide later to drive a manually-operated car, you will need another test. The pass rates for automatic cars are typically lower than those for manual cars. Don’t let this discourage you though, as thousands of learners pass the driving test in automatic vehicles every year.
