    Yes, one hand on the bottom left hand side of the wheel and one hand on the gearshift even if there isn't one. I learned on a stick and most of my cars have had a stick, including my current car, so it is a habit.

    I'm a bit of a 7 - 5 man. In the summer when the window's open my left is on 7 (right hand drive remember) and my right elbow is on the wound down window with my hand reaching the steering wheel wherever is comfortable. If I have to do any real steering I rapidly assume 10 2 position. I always let the wheel spin back on its own with my hands ready to stop it if things go awry. Don't think we are taught this though are we?

    I suppose since I started this mess, I should indulge you all about how I hold the steering wheel: One hand (or wrist), 12 o'clock (that's an Irish clock). If manual, I'm holding the gearshift, if automatic, I'm holding my other gearshift. If I'm holding the wheel with my right hand, which I often do when I'm cruising, I normally have my left hand sticking out the window, which makes me a born trucker, and I have the tan to prove it. I should drive a mail truck to even it out.

    Like I said, only when I'm about to crash. Otherwise, I'm steering with my knee while texting with my right hand and holding ma beer with my left!

    very rarely does driving require 2 hands.

    I drive with 2 hands when I am goin 70MPH down the highway in the rain and keep hitting puddles on the side of the road. Cant have the puddle rip the steering wheel out of your hand. A front wheel drive turbo charged car requires 2 hands or when you take off its gonna pull you into the ditch that is next to you. Anytime I rquire a fine level of control where I can have my muscles from each arm add the pressure I need to be able to make small/quick adjustement I will use 2 hands, else I drive with one, usually at 6 o clock with seat leaned back slightly. I do not lean it so far back that I am basically driving in the backseat like some people.
