What is the difference between an automatic transmission and a manual transmission? 

In a manual car, you have three pedals – the accelerator, the brake, and the clutch. You also have up to 6 forward gears, and one reverse gear. Whereas in an automatic vehicle you only have two foot peddles, the “accelerator” and the “break” and you use a forward gear “drive” or the “reverse” gear to go backwards and the gear changes are made automatically. When the transmission is put into “drive” the car will automatically select the correct gear according to the load on the engine and the road speed and will speed up when the accelerator is depressed. 

On a manual car, the accelerator doesn’t necessarily make the car go faster. This is dependent on what you do with the clutch and the gears, and the brake pedal and the incorrect usage of the clutch and the gears can cause the engine to stall. 

Should I learn to drive a Manual or an Automatic car?

Learning to drive a vehicle with a manual transmission is more difficult than learning to drive a vehicle with an automatic transmission. This is simply because a manual car is more difficult to manoeuvre due to the added complexity of operating gears by using the clutch and gear stick to choose the most appropriate gear at the appropriate engine speed. The result of this is that you are likely to require more lessons in a manual vehicle before your driving instructor feels that you are ready to take your driving test. There are some situations when driving an automatic car might be a better option. For example, some disabilities might make it easier to operate an automatic car. And if you mostly drive on congested city roads, not having to constantly change gears could make journeys less tiring.

If environmental factors play a role in deciding which type of car you learn to drive in, you might be interested to know that hybrid and electric cars are all automatic, so there’s no gear stick. Even more impressively, electric vehicles use just a single gear for both accelerating and decelerating without impacting the car’s performance.
