Do you know how to drive a car w/ manual transmission?
An automatic one?
Or do you drive both types?



=============

My answer: I drive both kinds :sillySmiley:

Automatic, here, much to my husband's dismay.. I attempted to learn how to drive a manual but he kept on screaming "you're ruining the transmission, stop grinding the gears!!!" I got so frustrated I gave up, lol, I'll stick with my automatic!

I learned on a stick shift. But I've driven an automatic for years.

With that kind of encouragement, you gave up?? LOL
I'd never have been able to learn if someone was shouting at me, either.

I know how to drive both, but feel comfortable with the automatic, people say the stick is easier than the automatic, but for some reason I just couldn't get comfortable with the stick, and prefer the automatic.

I would love to learn manual, but really don't have the opportunity. Not a big deal though.
So, it's automatic for me.

I can only drive Automatic. Boyfriend used to have a car that was Stick, but I was too afraid to try it myself when another friend wrecked her boyfriend's truck by going 80 in second gear (or something like that). It was a new relationship at the time, and I thought ruining his car wouldn't be the best way to stay in the relationship, LOL. He sold that car though, so I've never even tried driving a stick.

Automatic only. I've never even attempted manual, and if it's anything like my attempts at parallel parking, I had better never even try it, lol.

Manual transmission. There aren't as many automatic cars here in Britain as there are in US and almost everyone learns in a manual!

I have automatic but if it came down to it, I could drive a stick, as long as it is a smaller vehicle. The huge trucks that are stick, no way, but the smaller ones I can. I actually enjoy driving stick, as long as I'm on a country road or along that line. No way in town or cities.

I think the last time I parallel parked was my driver's test, back in the summer of 1989!

I can drive both, but it's probably been 10 years since I drove a stick. I hear it's like riding a bicycle - once you learn, you never forget.

I gave mine up a year ago cuz I couldn't pass my DOT physical because of blood pressure. I hope to get them back if I get better. Problem is, I'll have to take the tests all over again.

Ouch! That's horrible. I don't think I could go through those tests again.

Have you tried going to a chiropractor(I think that's how you spell it.) Anyway Jim had his physical done with one...Cause our Dr. couldn't get him in for a few weeks. Jim also said his boss had high blood preasure and 2 DR.'s failed him. The chiropractor passed him.

The cdl written part was really tough for Jim. He's a smart guy and had a hard time. The driven part was easy considering his boss watched the whole time. lol

Yeah, the written can be a pain. The PTI is even worse. It's amazing how many things they expect you to check on your rig every day before you pull out. I didn't pass my HazMat first time around, but I didn't need it for what I hauled, so I didn't worry about it.

Nah, a chiroprator wouldn't help. I'm on beta blockers for blood pressure, which they frown on, plus I've only got about 10% liver usage, so if and when I ever get them back, it'll be quite some time in the future. I just miss being on the open road.
