Automatic Driving Instructor in Beckenham, Kent
It is common for students to have a preference for automatic cars over manual. Some say manual cars provide more control. Despite this, automatic cars can be easier to handle, and can be a lot less stressful. Beginners often find it hard not to stall their car. The wonderful thing with automatic cars is that they are designed not to stall. Additionally, the learning curve on automatic cars is more gentle and students can learn a lot faster.
For students who have problems changing gear or using the clutch automatic cars are a good option.
