  • I never thought about that one, San. Odd that you can't drive manual if you pass in an automatic. It's definitely not the same out here!

  • Yep

  • I don't see why not. I don't think there is a special license just for driving a manual.

  • Yep, ours is a Drivers License...which means you can drive any type of car. You need a separate Endorsement on your license for operating a motorcycle or a commercial vehicle.

  • Yeah, there are no special classifications for manual vs automatic... A car is a car.

  • you are allowed to drive an manual car even if you pass your test in an automatic one?
    when we take our test in a manual car we can drive both .. however if we pass in an automatic we CANNOT drive a manual car without taking another test
