What’s the difference between taking driving lessons in an automatic or manual car?

Manual vehicles have a clutch, brake and accelerator. You change gears yourself utilizing the clutch pedal and gear lever. Automatic cars have a brake and accelerator only, no clutch. The car does the gears for you, this makes learning to drive simpler and typically implies you will reach test requirements with less driving lessons.

Because of the easier driving design required for automatic cars many new motorists feel that automatic driving lessons are much easier while other new drivers take pleasure in the difficulty and experience of driving a manual vehicle.

If you are in a rush to get your driving licence because of schooling, work or other factors, you might wish to consider focusing on passing your driving test in an automatic vehicle, as a lot of drivers discover that they require less lessons and pass their test quickly. You can return at a later date and take lessons in a manual vehicle and then test once again for your manual driving licence.

Gear changes

In an automatic car gears are changed instantly. As the speed increases the car will instantly go up a gear and as the car speed decreases the gears will instantly alter to a suitable lower gear. You do not have to master the coordination of the clutch, gear lever and accelerator. This makes learnig to drive an automatic car simpler than a manual.
