Automatic Driving Lessons Barnet
When making the decision to take up driving, you have the choice to learn in a car with manual or automatic transmission. This will be with the vision of you taking your test in the same style.
When faced with this choice you must truly weigh up which of the paths suit you. It is often said that cars with automatic gearboxes are easier to drive as they are lesser the clutch pedal. Driving without the thought of shifting through the gears can be a huge positive for new drivers. Some drivers choose this for the ease of not having to shift gears; others as a preference for town or city driving as it means less changing of gears in traffic and congestion. It may be the fact that the new driver may have a disability has made the decision on which transmission they will learn with, a simple one.
Can I drive a manual car with an automatic licence?
Whilst obtaining your manual licence will allow you to drive both manual and automatic cars, gaining your automatic licence will not do the same in reverse. You will only be able to drive a car with an automatic gearbox with an automatic driving licence.
