Hmm, I wish I could offer some intelligent input on this, but it fails me since I took to driving at an early age driving go-carts and then later my mother's car at 14; motorcycles at 12.
My step-brother, however, never learned how to drive. It seemed like the mechanics of it got lost between his brain and extremities. He passed the written test, but for some reason when it came to actually operating a car he couldn't. Negotiating turns, curves, and stops were his greatest challenge. Though not officially diagnosed before he passed, he had all the characteristics of one on the spectrum.
My friends' daughter also has the same challenges. They even bought her a golfcart to learn the mechanics of driving but she has the same problem negotiating turns, curves, and stopping.
