My automatic car is registered as a manual - what should I do?

I put my license plate numbers into a car insurance website and the reg came up as a manual transmission, but the car is an automatic. I only have an automatic licence.

I'd guess that a mistake has been made. Probably the original dealer who registered the car sent the wrong details to the DVLA. You can get them corrected: www.gov.uk/change-vehicle-details-registration-cer.../. But you need have no fear of prosecution. Any police officer can count the pedals.
