It also depends on the persons own symbolism. If a person isn't very in control of their life or feel like their life is always out of control, they may find themselves in their (non lucid) dreams always in the backseat of a car instead of in control/driving the car. So its quite possible for someone to drive a car in real life but just not experience dreams of driving one.
or if they feel their life is very slow and not achieving much, they may find themselves only driving slow cars in their dreams (or not driving at all). They may have a LD and manifest themselves a fancy red latest model porshe only to find that it wont drive faster then a few miles per hour
