Automatic Driving Lessons

Why Automatic Driving Lessons?

It’s no surprise to most, especially those who want to learn to drive, that the top choice for most learners will be to do so in an automatic car. Automatic driving lessons have become increasingly popular as of recently in the UK, and that’s partly due to the rising number of these cars on the road, which is growing more each year.

You might be wondering why most people would make this choice, and there are a few reasons for this, which we’ll explain below.

No Need For Manual Gear Changes

Automatic driving is relatively simple, especially compared to manual cars. As the name would suggest, the car takes care of changing the gears automatically meaning the driver has less to think about (no gear stick and no clutch pedal), and for a learner, this translates into fewer things to learn, can significantly reduce the barrier to entry, the number of lessons you might need to take and potentially makes it easier and more likely that you’ll pass your practical driving test.

How Do Automatic Cars Work?

These cars use a computer to change the gear at certain torque or rev levels. Some cars have the option of semi-automatic, which can be changed by either pushing the gear stick back and forward, or pressing paddle shifters beside the steering wheel. Neither of these options requires the use of a clutch pedal, and in most cases, cars with these options can still be driven fully automatically. Their gear shifts are many times faster and smoother than manual gear shifts.

There are 2 types of transmissions, one is hydraulic, and the other is electronic. The hydraulic uses pressurised liquid inside a hydraulic hose, and the other uses an electronic computer.

Downside To Learning In An Automatic

There is 1 major downside to learning to drive in, and passing your test in one of these cars, and that is that you won’t be allowed to drive a manual. So, be prepared to have fewer choices of cars to buy, and to pay more for your car. Because most of these cars are a lot newer than manuals, you won’t be able to just choose any old car.

So, whatever your choice is, we can certainly teach you to drive in one of them. Just contact us now.
