It’s fact….if you take your driving lessons in an automatic car you will pass your test more quickly than in a manual car, save lots of money in the process and enjoy stress free driving lessons.
Why is it so much easier to drive an automatic?
Well, for a start you can’t stall an automatic car. So no worrying about what will happen when you lift the clutch because an automatic doesn’t have a clutch!
You don’t need to think about which gear to use - all that ‘hand on gearstick, off the gas, clutch down, change gear, clutch up, back on the gas’…and without taking your eyes off the road!? It’s no wonder so many learners struggle.
Hill starts are a breeze - you can’t roll back. Biting point is a thing of the past!
Not having to think about gears will give you more time to control the speed of the car and to plan ahead.
You’ll become a safe, confident driver more quickly.
In summary, taking driving lessons in an automatic car means:
- More confidence - no stalling or rolling back;
- Less stress - no clutch or gears to worry about;
- You’ll learn faster - there’s less to learn and remember;
- You’ll have more time to develop judgement of speed and steering;
- You’ll need fewer lessons and save money.
Older learners, nervous drivers and people with special needs
Taking driving lessons in an automatic car is particularly suitable for older people (we have helped people aged 60+ pass their test) and those who have tried to learn to drive in a manual car but gave up because it made them nervous.
We have also helped disabled people and people with special needs get their driving licence in an automatic.
Sometimes automatic cars aren’t just an easier option. They could be the only option if if your reactions aren’t as fast as they used to be or if you struggle with the multi-tasking required to drive a car with a manual gearbox.
No matter who you are, learning to drive in a car with manual gears can be hard work. Why make life more difficult than it has to be?
