How To Learn To Drive A Manual at Columbus State Community College
After being acquainted with the controls of a stick shift automobile, the next procedure is finding out how to get a manual car into first gear. If you've only ever driven an automatic transmission car, this will very likely be very challenging and tough for you. As a matter of fact, you're probably going to experience a couple of hiccups along the way, perhaps even stall the vehicle while trying to maneuver your manual car in the first gear. But don't be bothered even if that occurs. It's going to be a little shaky initially, but rest assured, standard transmission autos can take the damage. Even if you might not expect it, manual vehicles are quite sturdy and longer lasting. Now, when you take your manual driving classes, this is how a driving teacher will usually teach you to change to first gear. First off, use your right hand to set the gear shifter in "N", put your feet into position - right foot on the brake and left foot on the floor - then switch on the car's engine. If you haven't already done it, make sure to release the hand brake. Once accomplished, put your right foot on the gas and gently press down until you achieve 1500 RPMs on the tachometer. When you achieve 1500, stop pressing down and just keep your foot steady on the gas pedal. Afterwards, very slowly release the clutch with your left foot, counting down from 7 seconds. Don't hasten and take care to raise your foot little by little. If you're able to do it right, the clutch will engage and the wheels on the manual car will start turning. Once you've completely pulled your foot off of the clutch pedal, you can now start pressing down on the gas to pick up speed. Keep going until you hit 2500-3000 RPMs on the tachometer, then you can start decelerating the car. To slow down the manual automobile, press the clutch with your left foot all the way to the floor. Then, get your foot off of the gas and start pushing down on the brake. Bonus tip: Always, ALWAYS, push the clutch first before the brake pedal. When you have your right foot pushing the brake all the way to the floor, the automobile should be at a complete stop. Once the car has stopped, change the shift lever back to N placement and pull up the hand brake. Lastly, you can take your feet off of the brake and clutch pedals.
