Find out more about driving an automatic car for Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons in Glasgow.

Looking to learn how to drive in an automatic car? You’re not alone! Automatic cars are becoming more and more popular in the UK, with many learners choosing to say goodbye to gears and clutch pedals.

The good news is, with automatic intensive driving lessons Glasgow, we offer courses that can be taken in either a manual or an automatic car. So whether you prefer to learn in an automatic or you’re not sure which to choose, we’ve got you covered and can advise you on what will be the best solution for you.

Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of auto cars:


  • No gears to worry about
  • No clutch pedal to use
  • Smoother driving in urban areas
  • When you learn in an auto car, you won’t have to worry about mastering clutch control or wearing out your clutch. And driving in stop-and-go traffic will be a breeze, as you won’t have to keep shifting gears.

But, as with anything, there are also some cons to consider before booking your auto driving lessons:


  • Less control over the vehicle
  • Automatic licences don’t allow you to drive manual cars
  • Automatic cars can be more expensive to buy and maintain than their manual counterparts, and you may feel like you have less control over the vehicle since the car is doing the shifting for you.
  • Additionally, getting an automatic licence means you won’t be able to drive a manual car later on, while manual licence holders can choose to drive an automatic. Keep in mind that pass rates for auto cars are lower than for manual cars, so it may not necessarily be easier or quicker to learn in an auto.

    Yes, it’s essential to have a provisional driving license before taking any driving lessons. Your
    instructor will require you to show your license on your first lesson, and without it, the lesson cannot take place. If you don’t have a provisional license yet, please visit for more information.

    Our intensive courses are fully flexible and tailored to your needs. You can choose a one-week course or a longer period that suits you. When you contact us, let us know your requirements, and we will book it accordingly.

    Learning in an automatic car isn’t necessarily easier or quicker. If you’re having trouble with observation, switching to an automatic car won’t make much of a difference. However, if you’re struggling with gear changes or clutch control, you may find it easier to learn in an automatic. Our expert instructors can advise you on which type of car would be best for you. Just give us a call on 0141 673 4484.

    Contrary to popular belief, pass rates for automatic cars are generally lower than for manual cars. However, thousands of learners pass in automatics every year, so don’t let that put you off.

    Automatic cars are more expensive to buy and run than manual cars. Additionally, most instructors use manual cars, and there are fewer automatics on the road. As a result, automatic lessons are usually more expensive than manual lessons.

    No, if you pass your test in a manual car, you’re free to drive both manual and automatic cars. But if you pass you test in an automatic then you can only drive automatic cars when you pass your test.

    We offer manual driving lessons and courses in all the areas we cover throughout Glasgow South Side and West End areas. Covering these local areas Paisley, Govan, Cardonald, Pollowshaws, Shawlands, Newlands, Cathcart, Battlefield, Govanhill, Partick, Hillhead, Langside, Anniesland, Scotstoun, Barrhead, Giffnock, Clarkston, Newton Means, Renfrew and Pollok.

    In a manual car, you need to change gears yourself, whereas in an automatic car, the gearbox makes the decision for you. If you learn to drive in an automatic car, you won’t have to learn how to change gears or deal with a clutch pedal.

    This may be possible in certain circumstances depending on short-term availability. If you wish to change transmission type, please contact us to discuss your changes.
