So /trv/ I am going to do driving lessons and my test at some point in the near future. I am from the UK and want to do the test in an automatic car. If I do this then I will only have my license to drive automatics.

I plan on doing a lot of travelling to some far-flung places in the future and would like to have the option of hiring cars in said places.

Now my question is to those of you who have hired cars around the world, are there usually f automatic cars available for hire in most places in the world? Or am I severley limiting my choice in the future and should do my test in a manual?

My reason for doing it in an automatic is that I am shit with the gears, and much more comfortable driving in an automatic.

The only place that I have seen automatic cars as standard for rent was in the US. You'll probably have to pay a lot extra if you want an automatic car anywhere else but they should have some automatic cars in the lot.

Israel rents mostly automatics. Otherwise, yeah, manual shift as the standard everywhere.

Just do a proper license for manual shift OP. It's not hard at all. It might feel complicated at first, but it'll quickly become second nature.

There really isn't any reason not to do your test in a normal car. Especially if you are in Europe.

OP here. I'm gonna emigrate from Europe in a few months, and I'm gonna settle in USA or Canada in the long term, hence why I'm not really too bothered about having a manual license for the UK

Just getting a licence for driving automatic gearbox is shooting yourself in the foot.

Outside the US, it's almost exclusively stick. Especially at rental companies. You'll be paying extra for an automatic everywhere, if they have them at all.

Also, man the fuck up and drive stick. It's just SO much more fun.
