The benefits of learning to drive in an automatic car are: 

No need to worry about a clutch or changing gears 
You can't stall 
Hill starts are easier 
Less in-car distractions 
More suited to today's complex driving conditions 
You might pass your test sooner than if you were learning in a manual car 
If you do pass your test quickly, you'll save money on driving lessons 
 
The disadvantages are: 
 
You will only be qualified to drive automatic cars 
You will need to take a further test if you wish to drive manual cars in future 
Automatic driving lessons may be more expensive

Why I made the change to automatic. 

I decided to change to automatic as cars are evolving very quickly and there has been a rapid rise in recent demand for hybrid cars so I felt the need to progress and move with the times. 
 
Demand for automatic lessons is on the rise and expected to overtake the manual market within the next 5 years. As technology advances, hybrid and electric cars will become the norm in the not too distant future 
 
We are a more eco-conscious generation and want to be green. All new taxis, buses and HGVs are automatic, car rentals and city cars too, with most families choosing them for their main car. 

My aim is not just to teach you to pass your test, but to give you the skills  needed to have a lifetime of safe driving ahead of you.
