    If your center only has automatics you may be in luck but no guarantees.

    No mention of manual or automatic, however, you can get it done by then and interesting enough nobody's gonna have the zika virus transmitted by this

    I see nothing in there about type of transmission. A good third of our cars are manual shift. You really need to learn what a clutch pedal is.

    We just discussed it this morning. We only have automatics in our center. All are trained with autos

    Again...P600? Whether they have them or not, P600 means manual transmission I assure you.

    Whether you are trained,tested or certified on an automatic transmission you will be expected to know how to drive a manual....period.

    They didn't care if the seasonal drivers knew how to drive a stick shift. The only part that sucked was , some of the regular drivers lost their truck during peak.

    Even if you test on a automatic. One day you show up to drive. Your automatic is replaced with a stickshift.. now what....

    Learn to drive stick....

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    How do you propose that they do that? It is nearly impossible to rent a vehicle of comparable size that has a manual transmission.

    It has been at least 10-15 years since I have driven a stick. It would take me a few minutes to get used to it again.

    My son told me that his roommate recently bought a new car that is manual transmission but did not know how to drive a stick. Thankfully I had the foresight to teach him and his sister how to drive a stick and he was able to show his roommate how to drive his new car in less than 15 minutes.

    If there are any manual transmission cars in the op's ctr then this person needs to know how to drive a manual transmission.
