Default Manual or auto?

I'm a wuss and I only got my automatic driving licence when I sat my test. I'm going to try and join the police and they require a manual driving licence. I just had a lesson and driving manuals is pretty cool.

I know that most Americans seem to drive automatics, but do you prefer auto or manual?

LOL you have to get a license for each? That's retarded.

I go with either. Manual gives you more power and fun, but it's too hard to get roadhead with it.

Not quite; you can only drive a manual car if you pass the driving test in a manual car. A manual licence allows you to drive automatics and manuals. An automatic licence allows you to drive automatics only. It's much more sensible than allowing someone who has no idea how to drive a manual to drive one just because he has an automatic licence.

Honestly everywhere I've lived except Alberta (and I'm assuming the rest of Canada) has required a manual and an automatic license. It's similar to getting a manual/auto license with a motorbike.

I prefer automatic, since my car is not a speed demon by any means nor could it ever be. I do know how to drive manual though, my great uncle has a tractor and pickup that I sometimes have to use.

Manual is the only way to go. Fortanetly I'm swapping my neon to a manual transmission this winter. I couldn't find a manual neon when I first got it so I had to settle for auto.

Default Re: Manual or auto?

A stick is a way more fun driving experience...catching a gear at the redline, a little tire squeal into third...mwahahaha...


But to be realistic, an automatic is easier to cruise around with...bowl in hand? No problem! Driving while talking on the phone, smoking a cigarette...all easier with an automatic.

Automatics are easier. But I don't feel very cool only driving them so I'm getting a manual license. People respect the manual.

Currently I drive a manual, but I can't say I have a preference.

I can drive a stick while eating a burrito or cheeseburger, while on the phone, changing the radio station.
