    I want to start learning to drive but since neither of my parents drive, I'm really unfamiliar with it all! What's the difference between automatic and manual gearbox and what should I pick? Thank you

    If you ask me, manuals are starting their journey on the way out. There will of course always be people who will swear blind only to drive a manual, but most people I know who've gone from manual to auto say they're never going back. Me included.

    It's useful to get a full manual licence - especially when it comes to hiring a car on holiday at some point. But to be honest with you, I prefer an auto any day.
