To watch traffic, follow the route, watch other cars, steer and concentrate on shifting gear. All that are things that any beginner driver has to cope with, all that at once – at one moment. Therefore for many potential drivers, both men and women, such beginnings may be stressful. For those who are afraid of driving with a manual gear, there is an automatic gear.

P – parking
R – reverse
N – neutral
D – drive
