Here in NSW you have the option for going manual or auto for your red P's, If you go manual, your allowed to drive whatever trans you like, auto = only auto. When you hit your Green P's (one years experiance) you can legaly drive manuals. so its pretty good for alot of people to learn auto, then switch to manual a year later. two of my friends are doing it that way. but i figure why not learn manual straight out. so thats what i did..

HAHA, In the CLK320 I selected R and then basically forgot it was an Auto, holding the brakes, thinking it was the clutch pedal, i built up the revs (backing up a steep drive) and released the brake and flew backwards...

I never had access to a manual transmission car. It was stolen before I ever got my license.

There is actually an auto test here- you're not allowed to drive manual though, you need to take your test for that. However, if you learn manual you can drive auto.

Basically, auto only is retarded. Manual ftw.

David, same thing happened to me and I feel you. *hugs*
