How Do You Drive Stick at Dallas College Brookhaven Campus
After getting yourself much more aware of the controls of a manual transmission car, the succeeding step is figuring out how to shift to and drive in first gear. This is usually the most challenging component of manual driving lessons, even more so for new drivers of manual cars (even more so for those who have only driven automatic transmission cars). You're probably going to experience stalling the car considering you're just figuring out how to get the car into 1st gear. Don't worry if that does come about. It can get a little twitchy, but that's fine because stick shift vehicles are beyond able to endure a few sudden stops and false starts. Even though you may not assume so, manual vehicles are far more durable and robust than you assume. Now, normally, when you're taking stick shift driving lessons, this is the way a driving instructor or facilitator at a driving school will instruct you to get the vehicle into first gear. Before switching the engine on, be sure you have the manual shift in the neutral position and your feet in the correct position - left foot remaining on the floor, and right foot stepping on the brakes. Start up the ignition, then press your left foot on the clutch until it goes all the way to the floor. If you haven't already cranked it up, make certain to release the emergency brake. Then, take your right foot off from the brake and gradually press down on the gas until you hit an RPM of 1500. Keep your foot fixed on the accelerator once you get there. Over a span of 7 seconds, slowly release the clutch pedal. Make certain to move up your foot from the clutch as steadily and as slowly as you can. You'll know you've done it perfectly when you feel the bite point on the clutch and have the wheels rolling on your manual transmission car. After you've completely taken your foot off of the clutch, start picking up speed by pushing down on the accelerator pedal. Keep speeding up until you reach 2500-3000 RPMs, then you can start slowing the vehicle down. You decelerate by, first, pressing on the clutch until it touches the floor. Release your foot off of the gas and onto the brake pedal. Always remember: you should ALWAYS step on the clutch before the brakes. When the brake pedal is pushed completely to the floor, you should have the manual vehicle at a full stop. Move the gear shifter to neutral and crank up the emergency brake when you get there. Afterwards, you can then take your feet off of the clutch pedal and brake.
