Honest advice would be to go back to learning in a manual.
Passing in a Automatic limits you so much..................

i paid about £800 quid for it tax is £66 for 6months and insurance is quite cheap too

why did you decide to give up on manuals, once you get the swing of that, you can drive mostly anything that has a manual gearbox, but its your decision.

as for the car, i would recommend getting a VW polo, very cheap insurance (depending on age of course), cheap to run and is brilliant for A to B driving.

Automatic test = cheating :p
#13
it took me a long time to get used to the gears! i was going to give up and change to a auto cos i just couldnt understand them BUT i got talked into keep trying then one day it slowly clicked,
iv been past my test a yr and a half and its the best thing i ever done, im so pleased i stuck it out and didnt change to a auto,
if you look through the adtrader or auto trader they give you a rough idea of 2nd hand cars/prices for autos

nah id disagree....the hardest part of a test were the bloody manouvers...and having a manual or an automatic made no difference to me...saying that i never failed on manouvers....but on the driving bit...im talking crap ill shut up!

anyways automatic is easier to drive when u got kids in back.....easier to swing one arm back and slap em one when they misbehaving...IM KIDDING!!!

we got a civic and a automatc CLK convertible at home and i drive the CLK during the summer...its dead easy getting kids in when the hood is down!!

yes it limits me but at the moment i cant drive anything so its still better. i intend to pass in in automatic, and after i grow more confidence i will go back and do the maual.

i want to be driving ASAP, and i am not very good at learning things with people watching, so when i get through the test, i can hopefully grow more confident
