Default Does anyone know if you can drive a Toyota Aygo with MMT with an Automatic Only licence ?

So I've been looking about on Toyota's UK website and can't really find anything that tells me if I can or not. I would really like to get an Aygo, but I can't drive Manual cars and the only other option on the Toyota website is their Multimode Transmission.































I'd love it if someone could show me some proof that I can legally drive the MMT Aygo before I go out and get one. Thank you.

Hello































If it does not have a gear selector with Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive. Then no you cannot. Have had quick look but I cannot find anything apart than it only seems to be available on the Platinum model. If you cannot put it into gear (D) and put your foot down and the cr change gear for you then no you cannot.















The Clutch-less Merc with Paddle shifts you wouldn't as you tell the car when to change gear.

there is not such a thing as "automatic only licence", the driver's licenses are issued on class everywhere. U probably have a noncommercial class A which allows you to drive in Europe as well.















I always rent a manual transmission car in Europe being the cheapest ones but I wouldn't drive in the UK where the big problems are the traffic rules. I barely can cross the streets over there.















The answer is that you can drive as the car has both manual and automatic transmission.

Disregard the American contribution. The last I heard from DVLA was that if it has no clutch pedal then they consider it automatic for licence purposes.































I'd be inclined to contact DVLA for yourself, then you have their specific response. Contact details here: http://www.dvla.gov.uk/contactus/drivers_enquires.aspx































Don't expect a swift response . . . .

Bardic's right. No clutch pedal = can be driven by auto licence only driver.
