Whilst automatic vehicles has become more popular in terms of vehicle sales, majority of learner drivers in UK still prefers taking manual driving lessons when learning to drive. This is vastly due to the fact that those that take automatic driving lessons and passes are not entitled to drive vehicles with manual transmissions. But learners that pass their manual driving lessons are entitled to drive automatic geared vehicles.
Learning to drive in manual is more complex due to the fact they are much harder to manoeuvre than its automatic counterpart. Additionally, learners needs to familiarize themselves with the complexity of using the the gears by using the clutch as well as adjusting the vehicles speed through the gear stick.
Generally, manual vehicles consists of 3 pedals, the accelerator, clutch and the brakes. It also uses five forward gears and a reverse gear. The speed of a manual vehicle is not dependent upon the accelerator. It requires a combination use of the gears with the clutch. Incorrect usage can cause the engines to stall.

I joined SmartLearner as a Trainee Instructor 6 years ago and never looked back. Never short of work friendly team with a real focus on customer service.
I had a bad experience with a national driving school, only interested in taking my payment. So wanted to move to a company that cared about its instructors. SmartLearner certainly has the instructor interest at heart.
I passed my test years ago, but hadn’t driven since and needed some refresher lessons. The instructor at smartlearners was very patient and encouraging and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. Thanks to SmartLearners I’m now back on the road.
