Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.

If you have no problem with the changing of gears, then it would be wise to take your last minute intensive driving lesson and the official driving test in a manual car. Once you’ve passed in a manual car, you will in effect have 2 licenses. An automatic as well as a manual license.
