    The reason they require more training is the vehicles are much larger, not that they have manual transmissions.

    Agreed. My point being that the training makes for safer truck drivers. The same would be true for car drivers if it were required.

    I had to take a winter weather driving class when I was in the military. Everyone stationed at the base had to take the class regardless where you were from. Wish it would have been taught in drivers ed. when I was in high school.

    I owned one for 275k, it made no difference IMO...and that was a NV5600 that shifted more like a tractor than a car.

    They can have all the training they require, but that doesn't make them a better driver...I will use the car hauler that almost ran me off the road tonight...
