Starting from the month of May, 2012. Due to the rise of more and more Automatic Transmission Vehicle on the road, Driving schools will be providing Automatic Transmission Vehicle as the learning car for those who want to take their P License.
Besides that, there are pros and cons for this situation. For those who learn and take tests in automatic cars will be issued an automatic transmission driving licence and will not be allowed to drive manual cars. However, those holding the manual transmission driving licence can drive automatic transmission cars.
Hopefully this implementation of the new driving standards can increase the safety driving elements and produce more disciplined and ethical drivers on the road in future.
