The driving school is primarily about preparing for everyday traffic situations. This requires a good sense of traffic, good speed control, applied knowledge of teh rules, good vehicle operation and much more.
The electric car offers everything, just better. The speed, or the flow, is not influenced by the engine speed. The vehicle operation is much easier without gear shifting. You don’t have to switch off the engine if you wait longer at a traffic light. When maneuvering, the accelerator pedal reacts much more gently and thus enables centimeter-accurate parking. The list of advantages is long. The electric cars are even less likely to be involved in a accident. Many who have switched to an electric car rave that they don’t want to go back.
How do I learn to switch manually?
Those who take the test on the electric car are allowed to drive manually afterwards. Experience with trucks has shown that a chauffeur gets used to a shifted transmission very quickly. The best way to do this is to practice in a large area first. If you feel unsafe and still want to drive a manually switched car, you can of course book a driving lesson with a driving instructor after the exam.
Which assistants are allowed in the exam?
No special driving aids may be used during the test. Normal aids such as parking sensors, reversing cameras and cruise control are generally allowed.
