LEARN TO DRIVE IN A MANUAL CAR

DRIVING LESSONS IN A MANUAL CAR

In the UK, drivers aged between 16 and 19 usually learn in a manual car, with only around 40,000 of the 720,000 driving tests sat per year for an automatic licence.

There are some clear advantages to having a manual licence over an automatic; we asked our Pricing team to help explain some of these benefits.

In general, it is typically cheaper to insure a manual car, as most automatic equivalents tend to be in a higher risk group to insure. They are normally in a higher vehicle group because the costs of repairs are higher for an automatic car - a significant point for insurers to consider when deciding which group to place a new vehicle in.

When looking at the Vauxhall Corsa, figures show that having an automatic licence is 11% more expensive than a full manual licence on the auto version of the Corsa for a 19-year-old driver with two years’ No Claims Bonus.
