Everyone’s different when it comes to driving, so make sure that you think carefully about which type of lessons you’d like to take. There’s less to get your head around with automatic lessons, but this type of licence will only allow you to drive an automatic car. On the other hand, a manual licence qualifies you to drive both types of vehicle and the lessons tend to be cheaper too.

If you’re going to be stuck in a lot of traffic you might prefer an automatic, as you won’t have to be constantly changing gears. Like automatic lessons though, automatic cars are more expensive than manual ones, so you’ll have to bear that in mind. The decision is ultimately yours!

To sum it all up:


  • Cheaper lessons and cars
  • Qualifies you to drive both manuals and automatics
  • Gives you that little bit more control


  • Easier and faster to learn
  • No risk of stalling
  • More pleasant in heavy traffic
