Probably not...........but it is always a good idea to take a first driving lesson with an automatic (but it should be brief..............save all the teaching time for manual later) :wink: :lol: .

I had my first lesson at the start of january, and I was on the road, driving about happily within half an hour. Am I doing something wrong?

you don't "learn manual before automatic".
Once you know manual you know both.
