A manual licence covers both types of cars while an automatic licence only covers automatic cars.

How do I upgrade my automatic car driving licence to a manual?

If you passed your driving test in a manual vehicle, you’re qualified to drive in both manual and automatics.

However, if your test was taken in an automatic, you probably hold a Category B Auto licence, meaning you must retake your test in a manual vehicle. You don’t need to apply for another provisional licence, as your automatic licence will simply be updated should you pass.

Additionally, you will not need to re-take your theory test when updating your licence – just simply book your driving test here.

Undecided about whether to learn to drive in a manual or automatic?
