Pass your test in an auto in the UK and you can't drive a manual till you pass another test

It's been a long time since I've seen a chick drive a stick, more than likely she will be in her 40's.

I had to teach my wife how to drive an automatic. Growing up in the Philippines, she only drove manual cars. She was my co-driver on my (now sold) RHD 110 for 3,200 miles.

no.

I also don't recommend stick anymore as it is a liability for most people in DC traffic. Except for masochists like me

^^ I should've been more clear; this is the 1st wife and no girlfriends right now. ^^


Was this just a survey concerning females being able to shift??

I leave the doors or window tops off and that keeps the girls from wanting to drive it.
Something about messy hair, I don't get it.

Yes she can. Grew up in a country where autos were rare!
Now, does she like it? No. She also likes a new 6-speed GTI (but no she never paddles shift it... It's kinda neat though! )
Both my 6-year-old can drive the D. They start in first and never switch gear!

My wife is Queens, NYC born and bred. Subway and foot until she was 20!

She hates all cars and all driving. It is not that she hates only the stick she just hates the auto less.

Umm - no wife here but my DH can drive a stick and so can my kid who was required to pass his driving test on a stick (mine unfortunately). House rules - no driver license until you can manage a clutch, pump your own fuel, change the oil and know how to change a tire.

Yes she can and prefers a manual trans. her DD is a 94 defender 90 , but love the series rovers as well. The scarey part is when she gets behind the wheel of the 930.
