Driving lessons manual car

Recommended Posts

Looking for a driving school that offer this. I want to get some driving experience for the purpose of getting a license in my home country, which is a lengthy process so thought u would get a leg up by learning how to handle the car atleast.

Most countries don't have separate driving licenses for manual vs automatic cars.

 

Does your country have separate licenses for manual vs automatic?

It does yes, but my thinking was its a good idea to learn how to drive manual, since thats the licence i will be getting. The cars available to me when i have the license are all manual. But maybe learning automatic and then switching to stick is fine? My understanding was its a pretty big difference. Thanks for your reply!

Its easy to go from driving a manual to driving an auto.

Going from auto to manual is not so easy.

Dont be overly worried about learning a manual because eventually you dont even think about it. It just becomes reflex.

Anyway good luck.

Aren't a lot of manuals out there anymore.

 

A new 911 with an auto tranny will beat a manual 911 any time. Or anything else. Except a Hellcat.

Yes but a manual Hilux v's an auto Hilux would be a different result.

One learns to "drive" in a manual transmission, control speed, breaking, fuel consumption, , you can also  understand and hear the engine reactions

Auto transmission, is merely learning to steer a car, big difference.

Learn defensive driving as well at the beginning, although I doubt you will find that skill easily in Thailand.

UK does, you cannot drive a manual with an auto license, but you can drive an auto with a manual license...

I would destroy you in my VW Golf R manual transmission.

@Kaalle Many, if not most driving schools, offer a choice of vehicles. My girlfriend hated me when I chose that she learned to drive in a manual transmission pick-up.... My choice as I was paying! She passed the test easily come the day, and has gone on to become a reasonably competent driver (after several years of riding motorcycles, on which she was never confident).

I checked two that didn't. But that's good news.
