I would guess with what Roy has been on about recently that it means that if you have a license to drive a manual car then if you have a license to drive an automatic bus, you will be able to drive a manual bus without having to take a tast.

Yep, same applies to lorry driving.

Mods may want to move the link to the "legal database" bit wherever that is.

Most government documents are gobbledegook.

Yes, providing you have a manual car licence. You have to send your licence to DVLA to get it amended first.
