There are many learner drivers who are now choosing to drive automatic cars. This means that they will be restricted to driving automatics in future, unless the take a further test in a manual vehicle. People who pass their driving test in a manual car can also drive an automatic car.
There are a number of benefits to owning a car with automatic transmission. Driving an automatic is easier, because there is no need to worry about clutch control and changing gear. As a result, the driver normally only uses their right foot to operate the brake and accelerator, there being no clutch pedal. Automatic cars are designed to move off as soon as the accelerator pedal is depressed, which means that the brakes are used more than they would be on a manual car.
A car with automatic transmission is ideal for old people, disabled people and those not confident driving a manual car. Some adaptations that are made to suit disabled people can only be fitted to automatic cars. Automatic gearboxes enable almost seamless gear changes to be made. There are also different levels of automation and gearboxes can be fully or semi-automatic.
Automobiles with automatic transmission are now just as economical as those with manual gearboxes. Previous issues with high maintenance costs have been reduced significantly by the investment of car manufacturers in transmission system technology.
