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.
