Why might you consider manual driving lessons?

Here at A-Grade Driving School, we really take pride in not only teaching our students what they need to do to drive safely on the road, but also to teach them why they should do it. By doing our driving lessons this way, we hope to provide all of our driving students in Brisbane, Logan and beyond with a thorough understanding of their automobile and the world around them. In today’s blog post, we will continue this education by answering one of the more popular questions which we receive here at A- Grade – that is of course:

‘Why should I bother driving a manual??’


One of the main reasons that may steer you towards your manual license is based solely on practicality. If you are able to earn your manual license, this means that you will not be restrained to a select group of vehicles like automatic drivers are. This is due to the fact that manual license holders are legally able to drive both automatic and manual vehicles. Even if you don’t intend on buying a manual car, you may find that this is particularly useful if you ever need to drive someone else’s car (perhaps even in an emergency!).


A lot of people that drive a manual car will note that they love the greater performance that their car offers. You will notice better vehicle control, whether it be accelerating, steering or decelerating.

Cost Effective

The final well known benefit of driving a manual vehicle over an automatic is the lesser running costs that are associated with the former vehicle. Manual cars cost less to buy, are cheaper to run and are generally cheaper to fix should they play up.

In today’s blog post, we have outlined some of the main reasons why many of our students are choosing to take manual driving lessons. If you have any more questions on the topic, or would perhaps like to book in for a lesson in Brisbane, Logan or any of the surrounding suburbs, please don’t hesitate to give A-Grade Driving School a call today on 1300 885 585.
