Automatic Car Driving
If you’re interested in learning how to drive in an automatic car, get in contact with us now.
Automatic cars differ from manual cars as there is no need for the driver to manually change gears. Automatic cars do not have a left/clutch pedal and therefore the left foot does not need to be used at all when driving. This is generally accepted as a simpler form of driving.
The team at Next Gear Driving Lessons are fully qualified driving instructors and are able to provide a comprehensive automatic driving tuition service. This is a popular choice for learners who are having difficulties with changing gears and using the clutch pedal. Automatic cars are also a natural choice for individuals with restricted mobility .
Learning in an automatic car can also be a suitable option for those who need to get on the road with a full licence in a shorter space of time as the handling is generally easier to grasp, resulting in a narrower learning curve.
Learners who pass their test in an automatic car are only permitted to drive automatic cars. To legally operate a manual car, learners will need to pass the manual car driving test. In a shift towards environmental-friendly motoring, we recommend learning to drive in hybrid-automatic or electric vehicles.
