TEST IN AN AUTOMATIC

i have done 2 tests in a manual car in the past but, having failed them both and arthritus in my left hip have decided to use an automatic. i know this will limit me to only automatics after the test but needs must.2 little ones at home adn would be easier if could drive)  i was wondering if anyone knew of any differences in the test for a manual and auto (other than the obvious) I'm ready to take trhe test again but having never had lessons from an instructor in an automatic (done plenty in manual but quite a while ago now) i dont know if theres any little bits in the test. lack of funds mean i cant really afford lessons and finding an instructor with an auto ahs proved difficult. i always drive in "drive", anyone know if thats acceptable for the test or do i need to practice manually doin the gears. i know the main parts of the test will be the same for an auto as they were in the manual. i just dont want to fail for a technicality. anyone taken a test in an auto or any advice would be appreciated.

Re: TEST IN AN AUTOMATIC

Where are you based?  Anywhere near Swindon?

If there are no independent instructors teaching in an automatic locally, have you tried contacting BSM?

I'd be phoning around all the local schools if you've got a bit of time on your hands.  Automatic lessons are always a little dearer than manual however.
