People often jump to the conclusion that learning to drive an automatic vehicle is easier than learning the ‘complicated’ ins and outs of attempting manual driving lessons – which is not always the case. With proper training by specialist driving instructors, best practices can be taught to make driving either transmission type a breeze.

Learning to drive an automatic vehicle can help reduce driving anxiety – requiring fewer actions and processes to drive efficiently. This makes it a common choice amongst students booking Perth Driving Lessons. Automatic vehicles reduce the chances of:
Compared to manual vehicles, auto cars only have two pedals and usually only require the use of the gear stick when reversing or idling. This allows the driver to focus on the dangers around them when learning to drive and sitting their automatic practical driving assessment.
Reduced Strain in Busy Traffic
Driving a manual vehicle in busy traffic such as Mitchell Freeway during peak hours can often take a toll on both feet as you’re constantly on and off the clutch and accelerator. As automatic vehicles only require the use of one foot, the strain of busy start and stop traffic is somewhat reduced. This usually makes automatic vehicles a more preferred choice for drivers expecting to be stuck in traffic on their way to and from work.
The Simplicity of Automatic Transmission
As automatic vehicles do not require the use of a clutch and minimal use of the gear stick, drivers can put more focus towards external dangers on the road. The simplicity of automatic driving lessons is often appealing to many learner drivers.
