Automatic Driving Instructor in Thornton Heath, CR7
Many pupils would rather learn in an automatic car. Manual cars offer greater control to drivers.
However learner drivers can find the complexities of manual driving to be off-putting. Automatic cars free pupils from the stress of having to think about gear changes and clutch control. We find that pupils usually progress faster in automatic cars.
