Learning How To Drive A Manual Car at Elevate Life Church Frisco
And now that you've oriented yourself with the gear shift, pedals, steering wheel and their position inside a stick shift vehicle; it's time to practice going into 1st gear and drive at slow speeds. For beginner drivers of manual cars, this can be especially complicated, even more so when you've only ever used an automatic transmission. To be honest, you're probably going to get a couple sputters and false starts while you're learning how to get into first gear on a stick shift vehicle. If this occurs to you, don't stress about it. You and your vehicle's engine will be more than alright. You may be a little put off with how shaky it gets, but stick shift cars are created to survive a bit of wear and tear. Honestly, you're probably underestimating how durable they really are. Now, when you're doing stick shift driving lessons, this is how any driving school or instructor will usually teach you to get a manual car into first gear. Slide the shifter knob to neutral position with your right hand, push down on the brake with your right foot and keep your left foot on the floor; once in place, turn the engine on. If you haven't already disengaged, make sure to pull up the parking brake. Next, take your left foot and press down on the clutch pedal until you hit the floor. Next, gently press down on the gas pedal with your right foot until the RPMs get to 1500. Once you're there, take care to keep your foot steady on the gas. Afterwards, count back from 7 secs as you ease your left foot off of the clutch. Do this very carefully and keep it as consistent as possible. When done correctly, you'll hit the clutch bite point and it will get the manual car rolling. After releasing the clutch, push down on the gas to pick up speed with your stick shift car. Keep going until you hit 2500 to a max 3000 RPMs with the engine, then you can start slowing down. To successfully decelerate, practice your clutch work again, starting with pushing the clutch pedal fully. Then, move your right foot to the brake pedal from the gas. The crucial thing to note here, the clutch ALWAYS comes before the brake. When you've pressed the brake pedal down to the floor, the manual transmission car should stop. Once stopped, move the driving stick into the N position and engage the emergency brake. When safely parked, pull up your feet from the clutch and brake pedals.
