Is doesn't seem to be "not very much"...

A: 運転ができますか

B: あまり、うまくはないですけど

I would be grateful if someone could help. :]


This あまり does mean "(not) very" or "(not) really", as found in these examples.

あまりうまくはないですけど literally means "Although I'm not very good (at driving)", which already implies "Yes I can drive" without actually saying it.
