  • It was not hard at all with a automatic but with a standard is a different story.

  • I don't remember how long it took me to learn to drive, maybe a month or two. I started learning at about age 12 or 13, but, of course, I couldn't get my license until I turned 16. After I got my license, I learned to drive a standard in a weekend. Neither was hard.

  • I probably still don't do it well. Probably the semster of drivers ed was all it took.

  • I don't remember how long, but I think about a month of driving maybe 6-8 times, maybe an hour each, and studying the manual. I didn't take drivers training class when I was a teenager. I lived in a big city and had two older brothers that would drive me anywhere, and there was a great transportation system that we used, so I didn't learn until after I was married and moved to a rural area. DH taught me.

  • My dad started teaching me to drive an automatic shortly before my 14th birthday, because at that time you got your permit when you turned 14 & passed the test. I wasn't allowed to get my permit til days before my 15th birthday though, and that summer I took driver's education, and did most of my learning there. Got my license on my 16th birthday.

    I learned to drive a manual in 10 minutes when I was 20.

  • It took me 2 days to learn how to drive a manual. I didn't have a desire to learn how to drive until the Thursday before school started my senior year. My dad took me out to drive that Thursday and Friday and I took the test on Saturday.
