** In "Let's Kill Hitler", Rory automatically knows how to drive a WW2-era motorcycle simply because "it's that sort of day".

* In ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', Launchpad [=McQuack=] can intuit how to operate any flying vehicle, from planes and helicopters to alien space ships and whatever invention [[MrFixit Gyro Gearloose]] has cobbled together. But while he can ''fly'' anything (kinda), ''landing'' is another matter entirely: his personal CatchPhrase is "[[CaptainCrash If it's got wings, I can crash it.]]" Note that this ability (which carried over to ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'') is pretty much Launchpad's. Darkwing himself has difficulties when in a cockpit; the only time he's flown the Thunderquack without Launchpad involve either autopilot or immediate demolition.

* Taken to extreme lengths in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', in which lead character Terra is basically given a 30-second lesson on how to pilot an airship by gambler/drunkard Setzer. After this, a party can be chosen, and regardless of who the lead character is in the group (and there are many possibilities), the airship can be flown with ease by anyone. This is strange, considering that a past friend of Setzer's crashed another airship and was killed, even though she was a skilled pilot as well. Particularly zany considering it's entirely possible to pilot the ship with not only a yeti, but a yeti that doesn't speak English and you have no control over in battle.

* Parodied in ''Film/HotFuzz'': The opening montage states that Nicholas Angel took and excelled in several courses beyond the standard police skillset, including advanced driving (cut to Angel taking a car through a controlled skid-stop)) and advanced ''cycling'' (cut to Angel taking a ''bike'' through a controlled skid-stop). [[AluminiumChristmasTrees Truer to life than you might think]]; police cycle training is basically LeParkour [[RecycledInSpace ON TWO WHEELS!]].

* Averted in ''Franchise/RockRaiders'' where cadets need to be trained in different fields depending on the type of vehicle you want them to use. Driver for land vehicles, Sailor for water vehicles and Pilot for air vehicles. Although to aversion only goes so far. Once a Rock Raider is trained in one field, they can operate ''any'' vehicle in that catergory.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Tuuri, who only has experience driving tractors, ends up being the one driving the crew's AwesomePersonnelCarrier, that is basically an RV with tracks. Sigrun was ''supoosed to'' know how to drive such a vehicle, but she turned out to be more of case against lying on one's resume and nobody else on the crew knows how to drive ''anything''.
