Learning to drive a manual car is a popular choice for many learners, and if you’re looking to gain this skill, you’ve come to the right place at Intensive Driving Lessons Glasgow! Our independent driving school in Glasgow has experienced instructors and well-maintained vehicles to ensure you feel comfortable and confident while learning to drive manually. With our help, shifting through gears will become second nature to you in no time.

While the decision to take your driving lessons in a manual car ultimately rests with you, there are a few things to consider. Learning in a manual car can be slightly more challenging at first, but it may ultimately be more beneficial in the long run. For instance, passing your test in a manual car means you’ll be licensed to drive both automatic and manual vehicles, whereas passing in an automatic only allows you to drive automatics. If you pass in an automatic and later decide to drive a manual, you’ll need to take the test again.

Manual cars are more common and generally cheaper in most respects, from purchase and repair to insurance and fuel efficiency. Learning to drive a manual car also gives you more options when it comes to choosing
a car to buy or rent – so look to our manual driving crash courses in Glasgow to pass your driving test fast!

That said, there is a steeper learning curve with manual cars. It takes time to master clutch control and shifting through gears, and you’re more likely to stall in a manual. However, with our expert instruction here at our Glasgow Driving school, you’ll get the hang of it quickly.

While learning to drive in a manual car can take longer and be more costly on average, we believe it’s worth the extra effort for the benefits it brings.

In conclusion, learning to drive a manual car may be a bit more challenging at first, but the benefits are numerous. Manual cars are cheaper and more common, and learning to drive one gives you greater flexibility and opens up more options when it comes to buying, borrowing, or renting a car. Additionally, passing your driving test in a manual car means you’ll be licensed to drive both manual and automatic cars, giving you even greater freedom on the road.
