Automatic Driving Instructor in Wandsworth, London, SW18
Some pupils ask to learn in an automatic car. Experienced drivers may prefer the greater control afforded by manual cars.
Nevertheless, beginners can find manual driving too challenging to start with. Automatic cars do away with the complexities of gear changing and clutch control. It is often the case that pupils learn faster in automatic cars.
