If you have never driven an automatic car (or van) before, you will find it rather strange when you first get behind the wheel. However, driving automatic cars is actually quite easy, and you will quickly adapt to the new set up and come to enjoy the simplicity of automatic driving.
The biggest benefit of driving an automatic is that you don’t have to think about when to change gear, or about getting that all-important clutch balance right. This frees you up to concentrate on the road and focus on the traffic and pedestrians around you.
Many drivers find it difficult to relinquish control of gear changes to an automatic system, claiming that it takes the skill and fun out of driving, but others find it much easier and less tiring than a traditional manual transmission.
