    Hahhaha. EVERYONE thinks they're a good driver.

    I've only had to drive manual once, when my friend forced me to learn via his teachings... I was nervous because the car wasn't mine. He insisted I was getting the hang of it quickly and doing well for the first time.. but I found the process annoying.

    It'd be good to practice for knowing purposes, but if I could at all avoid manual the rest of my life, I'd be just as happy. I'm no race car driver.

    On a scale of 1 - 10, 1 being knowing how to start the car and move it around and ten being the highest, most people would rate themselves a 6 or 7. I'd rate myself as a 2.

    The more you learn about a subject, the more you find out how little you know. And thus, the more realistic your appraisal. The more I learn about how to drive a car, the more I realize I basically drive my vehicle in straight lines with awkward, slow speed arcs connecting them - in other words, I'm barely doing anything difficult driving around a city or on a highway. I think it would be fair to say that I have 20% (or less) of the skill of a rally or formula 1 driver. More like a 1/10. Hell, even .25/10.

    However, a vast majority of people out there are 1's and below, so I have good company.

    I suppose, I'm a good driver, but a very BORING driver. You'll never find me trying to race someone through stop light or silly things like that. The most you'll get out of me that could be exciting is an almost ritualistic utterance of "Urgh...I hate people!" Which seems to always come out of my mouth at some point when I'm in a car and driving.
    Reading through the thread, yeah, this pretty much sums it up for me. Actually, it's perfect.

    In short: I hate driving, driving hates me, and I apparently drive like an old lady. Woot!

    ....anyways, yes, I race people at red lights and all that... especially teenagers who think they can beat me! I beat them at the light, they get mad and try to beat me at the next light, I beat them again, they get even more mad and turn off on a side street. LOL!

    How do you all drive in the snow? I have had some near misses because I surprise myself with my reaction time and judgement. Anyone else like this?

    I consider myself a good driver, as compared to the majority of other people. I keep to normal/safe driving on the road. On a track/private property, it's a whole different story, as some friends have found out. (Much to their loss of bets.)

    I personally found it took me about an 20 minutes to learn to drive stick decently, and a few weeks before I felt I drove it "well". However, the catch to that is that I've ridden dirt bikes for 8-10 years constantly, so it was much easier for me than other people. (Automatic dirt bikes don't exist/are very rare).
