When you are learning to drive having additional mirrors can make the process much easier.  The round mirrors simply stick onto the existing side mirrors on your car and give a wide viewing angle making reversing and parking much easier.  It is also a requirement for you to provide a rear view mirror for the DVSA examiner to use on test, but also essential so your supervising driver can see what is following behind you.  These mirrors are reletivly none expensive but come highly recommended by existing learner drivers.

Automatic cars are easier to drive because they do not have a clutch or gears.  Learning to control the clutch and change gears are complicated to some learners.  As there is no clutch control to learn it also means you will not stall, automatic cars do not stall and tend not to roll backwards on hill starts.
