How To Drive Manual Car at Miller-Motte College
After getting yourself a lot more familiar with the controls of a manual transmission car, the ensuing step is finding out how to shift to and drive in first gear. This is commonly the most confusing aspect of manual driving lessons, most especially for new drivers of manual cars (a lot more so for folks who have primarily driven automatic transmission cars). You're likely even going to experience stalling the car as you're only figuring out how to get the vehicle into 1st gear. Don't stress if that does happen. It can get a bit jerky, but that's fine because stick shift vehicles will be beyond able to bear a couple of false starts and sudden stops. Even if you may not presume so, manual vehicles are even more robust and durable than you think. Now, ordinarily, when you're taking stick shift driving lessons, this is the way a driving instructor or facilitator at a driving school will show you to get the vehicle into first gear. Before turning the car on, be sure you have the manual shift in the neutral position and your feet in the right position - left foot flat on the floor, and right foot stepping on the brakes. Switch on the ignition, then press your left foot on the clutch until it goes all the way to the floor. Make sure to release the emergency brake if you haven't already cranked it up. Take your right foot off from the brake and gradually step down on the gas until you get to an RPM of 1500. Hold your foot fixed on the accelerator once you get there. Then, over a period of 7 seconds, slowly but surely release the clutch pedal. Be sure to bring up your foot from the clutch as steadily and as gradually as you can. You'll know you've performed it properly when you sense the bite point on the clutch and have the wheels rolling on your manual transmission car. After you've totally taken your foot from the clutch, start picking up speed by pushing on the accelerator pedal. Keep speeding up until you reach 2500-3000 RPMs, then you can begin slowing the car down. You slow down by, first, pressing down the clutch until it reaches the floor. Then, release your foot from the gas and on the brake pedal. Keep in mind: you must ALWAYS push down on the clutch before the brakes. When the brake pedal is pressed completely to the floor, you will have the manual vehicle at a full stop. When you get there, get the gear shifter to neutral and pull up the emergency brake. Afterwards, you can then take your feet off of the clutch pedal and brake.
