Learning to drive with Automatic Transmission/Gearbox
Learning to drive in an automatic car is far easier than in a manual car. The advantage with an automatic driving lesson is that there is no clutch pedal, and therefore no gears for you to change. It’s simply a case of selecting drive mode and managing the accelerator and brake pedals.
With the task of selecting gears out of the way, you’ll be able to divert more of your concentration towards planning ahead, steering and anticipating potential actions of other road users, generally making driving much easier.
Automatic cars tend to take less time to learn to drive than their manual counterpart, which can be of benefit to those who wish to learn quickly or those who have found selecting gears and operating the clutch difficult. Automatic cars can also benefit some drivers with special needs.
