I actually disagree with this, and think people should all learn in a manual. If you learn in an automatic, you never understand what the car is doing with gear changes. 99% of the time that's fine, but sometimes you really need that extra control for safety. Even though my car is an automatic, I still flip it over into semi-auto control mode for challenging roads to make sure it doesn't surprise me at the wrong time in a corner.
@PhilEvans Just going to put it out there, I tried to learn with manual but I couldn’t get the gist of things. I had two different instructors and the stress of it made me loathe driving! I came to a point where the idea of me driving without support actually made me feel sick.That’s why I switched to automatic and I managed to pass my test and I’m now a confident driver
That is a strangely American problem. Europe doesn't generally have this issue with people learning to drive with manual gears. This isn't meant as a "my country is better than yours" post, but it seems like a shortcoming of driving instruction in the US. Possibly it's because you learn to drive crazily early over there, most of the world starts at 18
@PhilEvans Is it? I’m from England. It doesn’t help that I have a nervous disposition. I’m definitely not from the US
Ok, well you're fairly unusual then. I'm also in the UK, and I only know one person with an automatic-only license - he's a paraplegic so needs one hand to steer and one for accelerator/brake.Sorry for the assumption you were a merkin, your profile says you are!
@PhilEvans I’m unusual in every sense of the word! But I am proud ha ha. I know a few people who prefer automatic to manual. Oh, I didn’t realise it said I’m from the us! Oops!
