The attractions of automatic driving lessons in Durham

If you’re new to driving, in a car with conventional manual transmission it can take a while learning to coordinate gear lever and clutch. These issues don’t apply to an automatic car, because you only have the accelerator and brake to operate as you drive along.

There is no need to bother with changing gear up and down when accelerating or slowing down. That helps people with certain kinds of disabilities. And for everyone, the car does the work for you. Which is why it’s called automatic. That’s a great help in stop-start city traffic.

Manual cars, however, can be more fuel efficient, cheap and reliable than automatic versions of the same model, because the mechanisms are simpler. In wet or icy conditions they allow more control. And with a manual licence you’re permitted to drive an automatic car, as well, whereas an automatic licence only entitles you to drive an automatic car.

It’s useful to consider that the growing market trend is towards hybrid and electric cars. These are all automatic. Which could be why younger people now increasingly prefer learning at EasyPass, providing automatic driving lessons in Durham. And become future-ready.
