Question:  What does it mean to “drive a stick”?

Answer:  Driving a stick means driving a car that has a manual transmission.  The “stick” is short for the “stick shift” in English.

The Joke:  In literature and film, witches fly on a broom – also known as a broomSTICK.  So she (or he) DRIVES a STICK!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
