Resources for Instructors

Interested in Teaching?

If you have questions about teaching or want to learn more about what's involved in working with us, we recommend that you read through the Stick Shift Instructor Basics, FAQ, Quiz. We wrote this based on all of the questions and concerns that we've received from about 3000 applicant instructors since we started in 2018. Of course, if you have additional questions or concerns, we're happy to talk 1 on 1 with you.

As an instructor on this platform, you can teach however you want. While we recommend following this curriculum, it is not required. That said, the curriculum we've come up with is designed to be very gradual, which helps the customer to relax and also helps protect your clutch. Click here to open the Stick Shift Curriculum.
