>That seems odd to me. The driving test should be to make sure the licensed driver is safe on the road. I don’t see it as being dangerous for someone used to driving an automatic car to drive a car with a manual transmission.
Stalling out in the middle of heavy traffic is anything but safe!! I
know!! I learned to drive and took my test on an automatic transmission
car and then I bought my first car, a 1952 Plymouth, with a manual
transmission. My first adventure was driving back to school from
Brooklyn to Troy, New York. I stalled multiple times on the old West
Side Highway, and it ain't fun!!!
