Automatic driving lessons with Lanes School of Driving

When you are learning to drive for the first time, you will have the option of either learning in a manual car or an automatic car. You may have heard that automatic cars are easier to drive. On the other hand you may have heard that manual cars give you greater control. At Lanes we will give you the option of learning either in a manual or an automatic.

Automatic cars are easier to drive. With manual cars, you will have to physically change the gears and control the clutch pedal. This is a big challenge if you have not driven before. Bad clutch control will lead to frequent stalling of the car which is a common problem for beginners.

With automatic cars all you will have to worry about is steering the car and going faster or slowing down. There is no clutch and all the gear changing is being done for you. If you are not confident about your driving abilities or just want to learn as quickly and efficiently as possible, automatic cars could be the right choice for you.
