Install ceiling drywall

Is it best to install garage ceiling drywall parallel with the ceiling joists or perpendicular and why?

It can go either way, perpendicular is usually the easiest.

I have to agree with Spruce. It is easier to have the shorter 4 foot edge of the drywall line up with the rafters, rather than the longer 8 foot length.
