Has anyone heard anything different.
A friend of mine as told me that the car Im driving is classed in a way that the driver must have passed the driving test in a manual to be able to drive my car legally?
My car a 1.6 tdci 7 speed auto.
He went on to say he had read a piece in the local paper where a garage had been done for selling a car to a driver who had been involved in an accident whilst driving his c max auto? when he was only licensed to drive real autos and the c max is classed as manual.


(Please do not take any of this story as legally binding as it clearly a matter for solicitors and courts etc.)

An Automatic is an Automatic. i don't think it matters that you can manually sellect a few gears. it acctually still does what it wants, even in "manual" it can still change gears on it's own or stop you from down shiffting i think. I'm pretty confident it's classed as an auto, it's got an auto box and no clutch.
