Quite simply, learning to drive in an automatic car is significantly easier than a manual one. There is less to do for the driver and it provides more relaxed motoring experience in traffic.
Automatic cars have what is commonly known a automatic transmission. This system changes the gears automatically when in is needed. The system also prevents the engine from stalling and has a function called ‘creep’ which makes moving off uphill easy preventing rolling back.
Where a manual car has 3 pedals, an automatic only has 2 pedals. These are an accelerator and brake.
Whilst you learn to drive you will not have to worry about when to change gears. Instead, just concentrate on the other things requires to become a good safe driver.
If you are or have been having trouble with those gears, clutch or stalling the engine let a Maidenhead automatic driving instructor show you how easy driving a car can be.
