Hi there everyone!

I am loving Peugeot's, I have been learning to drive in a gorgeous 306 Lx (although I think it's the GLX because driving instructor was saying it's a actually got all the adds on as it's a tester for the market before they brought out another one) So I am learning in a 306 1.6 LX Automatic, I find it so smooth and lovely to drive, and I am desperately searching for one of these for myself, as my 2nd test in next week, and I'm going to pass - should have passed in Nov before I done something wrong, but instructor says he doesn't want to see me again after my test cus I'm fine to be driving on my own etc!

Anyway, I hope to be a 'regular' here.

You do know that if you pass your test in an auto that you can only drive automatics.

RoSPA and IAM recommend you left foot brake in an auto (though it's a bloody unnatural feeling) to prevent the scenario where drivers jab the accelerator by mistake instead of the anks and go racing off through someones garden/house/bowling green/shop/bus shelter etc.

It also depends on the exact car as to whether you're stuck with an auto only licence - a lot of cars with an auto box where you can also snick the gears manually, like the pug 2 tronic, some alfas etc, will also entitle you to drive a manual car if you pass the test in one. DSA have a big list of models.

Btw, I am a girl lol.

Yes I know I can only drive an auto when I pass next week lol. But i tried manual couple years ago, and I couldn't get on with it, so I wasn't getting any enjoyment out of learning or driving, so rather than keep wasting my money on lessons which weren't going further forward I had a break and decided on auto, now Im loving it and can go from A - B easily without stalling lol. Both my parents have manual lisences and both now have autos, dad has a new landrover disco and mums husband has a smart audi a3 which he says when i got my licence i can have a go in! wooo!!! lol.

I hope I do pass next week, as i've found a pug close-ish to me, well the closest i can find one, and i've got insurance quotes and the 1.8 is cheaper than the 1.6 for somereason.
