When you’re learning to drive, the question of ‘automatic or manual?’
One of the most common questions for learner drivers is, “Should I learn a manual or an automatic car? Well, things to consider: can I drive a manual car on an automatic licence? The simple answer is no. A manual driving licence gives you the freedom of choice to drive manual or automatic, and this freedom can also save you money in the long run.
Let’s say you’re going on holiday; you are more likely to pay a premium for an automatic car. In most cases, insurance on an auto licence can also cost more, according to admiral car insurance. Other costs to keep in mind: automatic cars are normally more expensive to buy brand new or used and have a high maintenance cost for servicing.
While it might feel like you are saving money by doing automatic driving lessons originally, in the long run, you will spend much more. No matter which transmission type you’re leaning towards, the cost of driving lessons isn’t cheap. Finding a good driving instructor can help you save money. Doing cheap driving lessons in most cases means you do more lessons and end up spending more.
Learning to drive a manual car can take longer. If you’re learning manuals, you just have more to learn, such as clutch control and gears. This means it could cost you more in driving tuition. Automatic driving lessons are often more expensive, and sometimes it can take you close to the same amount of lessons needed, so it’s worth really doing the math before choosing.
Our advice would be to try out the manual, as you will be better off in the long run. It will give you a better option in the future, whether to buy a cheaper car, rent a cheaper car, or even for work.
