AUTOMATIC DRIVING LESSONS IN BURTON
ADVANTAGES OF AUTOMATIC DRIVING LESSONS
Fast Pass Driving School offers automatic driving lessons in Burton as well as manual driving lessons. There are many reasons as to why learning in an automatic car is the way forward.
Firstly, it is easier to learn in an automatic car due to there being no clutch pedal or gear stick. These are used in conjunction with each other – when the speed of the car changes, you would change the gear whilst also pushing the clutch pedal down at the same time. This confuses many road users, making it harder for them to learn how to drive.
In an automatic car, as you change speed, the gears are selected automatically, hence why there is no clutch pedal. This is especially helpful for nervous drivers as there are fewer things to worry about and less potential for getting mixed up whilst driving. It also allows you to concentrate on the road ahead, rather than what you are doing with your hands or feet.
AUTOMATIC GEAR CHANGING
Another advantage of learning to drive an automatic car is accuracy. When driving a manual car, to successfully change gears, timing is of the essence. You must be at the right speed and change the gear as quick as possible – failure to do this can lead to the gears grinding and damage to the transmission of the car. With an automatic car, you don’t need to worry about that as transition between gears will be smooth, in addition to being accurate every time.
DRIVING AN AUTOMATIC CAR IN TRAFFIC
As an experienced driver in traffic, the most frustrating thing is having to constantly stop and start the car. A lot of good clutch work is required just to edge that little bit forward when caught in a traffic jam. In an automatic car, none of this is an issue. If you are moving, you accelerate using the gas pedal and if you need to stop, you use the brake pedal. There is no extra fiddling with gears or other pedals, making the whole scenario that bit easier.
CHEAPER TO LEARN IN AN AUTOMATIC CAR
Lastly, learning in an automatic car is a cheaper experience. Because it is easier to learn in an automatic car, you will need to take fewer lessons before you can book your driving test, hence saving money.
