Manual VS Automatic

Today I would like to dispel a popular myth which is...... that it is better to learn to drive on an Automatic car.

Whilst some would argue that it is easier because you do not have to learn the gears, there are other factors which people overlook when deciding to go for an automatic license, and quite often these "cons" outweigh any "pros" you might get from learning on an automatic vehicle.

Also, by learning to drive manually you are opening more doors for yourself. An automatic license will only enable you to drive (surprisingly) an automatic car. But by learning manually and gaining a manual license, you would be able to drive both a manual and an automatic (although not both at the same time, of course). With a manual license there is no car that you would not be able to drive - it is almost like you are gaining two licenses for the price of one. What would you do, for example, if you wanted to hire a car whilst on holiday but the car hire company only had manual cars available? As a matter of fact, most car hire companies stock more manual cars than automatic.

And then of course, there is the issue of buying a car. As there are less automatic vehicles produced compared to manual vehicles, the price of an automatic is considerably higher. The selection is not as wide with autos too because there aren't as many of them made. In fact, some models just aren't available as automatics, full stop. So if you've had your eye on that dream car for ages, I would strongly suggest that you do your research first and make sure that it comes with automatic transmission. Or failing that, simply learn to drive a manual in the first place and you will never have a problem. Visit Our Website Here
