Learning and passing the driving test in a manual car
We encourage young drivers not to apply for automatic lessons as a quick and easy way of getting a driving licence. In the long run, it doesn’t do you justice! In our opinion, you should only consider automatic lessons if you have a certified disability, or you are starting to learn at a mature age. Learning how to change gears is in fact, a lot easier than you’d presume! From 25 years of experience we see that students would approach us from other driving schools wishing to change from manual to automatic, almost always because of a lack of understanding of the gearbox – a result of their instructor not teaching them sufficiently. At Streetwise, we can proudly say that we have converted many students from automatic to full manual licence holders because we help the students feel comfortable with the gears through clear, methodical training. Why not have a look at our testimonials and see for yourself?
It’s worth taking the time to consider which is best for your needs, but whether you choose manual or automatic driving lessons, you can be sure that you will receive consistently high standards of tuition from any Streetwise instructor.
