Do you think that you could ever forget how to drive?

I haven't driven in almost a year, since I moved to NYC, so I'm wondering if it's possible.

    I dont think you would forget how to drive. Probably it will take a little time to get adjusted after a long break. My husband is in NY too, and he doesnt own a car at all. He only rents a car maybe once a year or once in two years. He drives well and he has not forgotten anything like that.

    No. But I find if I haven't driven in a while I'm a little intimidated

    by road rage. And I find myself driving more defensive than usual.I get nervous in curves & I often over check my mirrors.

    I'm neurotic, what do I know?

    i dont think you could ever forget how to drive. even if you havent driven in a while or like if you get amnesia or something. you might THINK you forget but once you actually get behind the wheel i think everything will just be routine because you've done it so many times. well thats just my opinion!

    No, maybe you can get a little rusty but you can't forget how to. Once you sit in front of the wheel, you'll know what to do ;)

    EDIT: I hate the fact that my answer looks a lot like the one posted above me LOL I have typing so slowly.

    You may be rusty at first ( this has happened to me )

    but after a little while your brain remembers.

    Its just like going roller skating again. You will be

    a little wobbly at first but then youll get it.

    Permanent forget? Maybe if you like, fell and got

    amnesia lol.

    Learning to drive is like learning how to ride a bike.

    You never really lose the ability, you just get out of practice.

    I see it all the time on the road when I drive. People drive like they either never knew or forgot.
