In theory, even auto drivers should have a training period as different cars have different characteristics. Truck drivers already do as here in the States, it's an "add-on". So yes, the pilots need to train to the plane as every plane has a different flight envelope. Difference between cars and planes is that one will kill you and everyone in it if you don't actually know and understand the differences.
