Why take Automatic Lessons?

  • There are no gear changes
  • You cannot stall an automatic car
  • You cannot roll back on a hill
  • Faster to master and you will  need less automatic driving lessons
  • You have problems reaching the pedals
  • You need your driver’s license fast
  • Low confidence driving abilities

Many people think that if you can drive a manual car, that means you can also automatically drive an automatic car with ease, and an automatic car can be seen or believed to be easier to drive than a manual car. This assumption, however, is not quite true, mostly because the two types of cars are different—perhaps subtly, at first glance. However, manual and automatic cars require certain movements on the part of the driver, so even just getting used to driving an automatic car when you’ve been used to a manual can be a bit of a challenge at first. Our automatic driving school in Perth will quickly teach you how to drive an automatic car.

Learn to Drive with our Automatic Lessons

If you choose to learn  and take a driving test in an automatic car your driving licence only allows you to drive an automatic car, so if you wish to drive a manual car you would need to take another driving test in a manual car.

automatic driving lessons for beginners

Melbourne is a very popular place for learner drivers, both manual and automatic. Learning to drive in an automatic car is a popular choice for learners who find working the gearbox and using a clutch pedal at the same time difficult, a reason why automatic cars are popular among elderly learners or those with some sort of disability that limits their coordination in some way.

At Best Driving School Melbourne, we normally recommend our students always try to learn to drive a manual car first, to sort of ‘test’ their own abilities. Then, if they find operating the clutch or gear changes, or perhaps both, to be too difficult, we advise them to switch to an automatic car. Our instructors are fully trained to advise and provide lessons in both manual and automatic cars. People who have spent their entire time driving manual cars, too, may want to take a few lessons, just to get acquainted with the way the car works before they join the traffic.

One thing that should be remembered is that if you choose to learn in an automatic car and take your driving test in an automatic car, your driving license only allows you to drive an automatic car, so if you wish to drive a manual car you would need to take another driving test in a manual car. However, if you are certain that automatic driving lessons are right for you then are expert instructors are on hand to show you how to drive an automatic.

How is an automatic car different?

The main thing is that an automatic car is slightly different from a manual car in that the driver does not need to change gear by him or herself using a clutch pedal, as in the case of the manual car.

An automatic gearbox does not have a left pedal/clutch pedal like a manual car does; therefore, when driving an automatic car, the left foot does not need to be used at all. In general, this does make activity is a bit less complicated. However, for people who have been driving manual cars all during the entirety of their driving career, it does take getting used to—at the beginning, manual car drivers might be feeling a little fidgety, like they don’t really know what to do with their other foot. It may not seem like such a hard task, but it is definitely one it’s best to practice before getting out on the road with other drivers.

Automatic cars make learning to drive easier, at Best Driving School Melbourne we can provide automatic driving lessons in Perth with both male and female instructors, at a time and place that suits you. Our range of lessons including motorway lessons to intensive courses caters for drivers of all levels of experience.
