An automatic car is a type of car with a different gearbox than a manual car. The key difference is that an automatic car does not require the driver to manually change gears, which comes with a range of benefits. If you’re someone that struggles to drive a manual car, then driving an automatic may be a complete game changer for you, and make you fall in love with driving.
Here at Beverly Slater, we offer automatic driving lessons for those who want to start driving an automatic car.
Easy to use
It’s no secret that many people find automatic cars a lot easier to drive. This is because you don’t have to worry about changing gears all the time, you only have to focus on whether you’re going forward, reversing, or coming to a stop. This makes the mechanics of driving a lot more simple and easier, which is a massive advantage.
Driving an automatic car is also much easier to use whilst driving in heavy traffic, and hilly areas. As you don’t have to worry about switching gears, it becomes a much more straightforward affair in what would otherwise be a stressful situation.
Following on from the previous point, as driving an automatic car is easier it actually saves a lot of stress on the road. One great example of this is removing the fear of stalling. Stalling happens when you release the clutch too quickly, which impacts the engine’s ability to function normally. Since you don’t have to worry about the clutch in an automatic car, this allows you to drive knowing your car won’t stall when you stop. Stalling can be very anxiety-inducing, as you don’t know where it will happen, and those behind you may not be too patient! Driving an automatic reduces these fears and can make driving a more pleasant experience for you.
If you’re someone that worries a lot and already has driving anxiety, then driving an automatic may be the best option for you. Additionally, if certain aspects of driving scares you, then sign up to our pass plus course that we offer. We can teach you how to navigate the roads during anxiety-inducing conditions.
Easier to control
Removing the need to change gears constantly allows drivers to focus and concentrate on the road ahead. This makes automatic cars easier to use and control, which is a great benefit to have.
