Should I learn in an Automatic car?
Automatic cars are now increasingly common, not only are they easier (and more relaxing) to drive than a manual, in some cases they can be better on fuel and can cost less to maintain. Automatic cars are generally easier and quicker to learn in since there is no emphasis on learning to use the clutch or gearstick, this means it´s more than likely going to be more expensive to learn to drive a manual car as you will need more lessons.
Should I learn in a Manual car?
The first thing to bear in mind is if you learn to drive in an automatic car, you will only be allowed to drive automatic cars going forward whereas if you learn in a manual you can choose whether you want to drive a manual or automatic once you’ve passed your test.
A manual licence covers both types of cars while an automatic licence only covers automatic cars. However, the cost of driving lessons isn’t cheap and, inevitably, learning to drive in a manual car takes longer as you have to be trained to use the clutch and the gearbox. This means it’s more than likely going to be more expensive to learn to drive a manual car as you will need more lessons
However, automatic lessons are often more expensive so it’s worth doing the maths before you make your decision.
