Many pupils would rather learn in an automatic car as opposed to a manual one. It is true that manual cars have the advantage of allowing greater control.
However beginners often do not want to face the added challenges of commanding a manual car. Automatic cars are undoubtedly easier to learn from – they do away with the need to master gear changing or clutch control. We often find that pupils learn faster in automatic cars.
