Automatic Driving Lessons

Some drivers find using a clutch and manually changing gear too much to co-ordinate and often worry about selecting the wrong gear or stalling the car. Driving an automatic car removes all these worries and leaves the driver more time to concentrate on road procedure.

With an automatic there is also less physical work to do, ideal if you suffer from arthritis or have any disability. As traffic density increases, especially in town and city driving, there is little wonder that automatic cars are on the increase, the time will soon come when all cars will be automatic, and of course the technology is rapidly advancing with electric vehicles and these are also automatic in the sense that they generally do not have any gears at all. The torque range of electric motors covers the speed range of passenger cars without the need for a gearbox. The torque being highest when moving off gives an electric car very good acceleration. And then there are self driving cars on the horizon.
