Yes it's a great model to use for learning physical tasks. The car analogy is a perfect example of how the model works in practice. I also use Mobile phones as an example too.

I also use the model to talk about learning soft skills but more to demonstrate that actually unconscious competence is actually much more difficult to achieve and that conscious competence needs to be worked on continually. It's the same with language learning too if you don't use it you lose it. So regular practice is important.
