Like stick shift?
Observe the experienced driver, listen to when he shifts and the movement of his feet.
Go to a deserted parking lot and get in the driver’s seat. Place your left foot on the clutch and your right foot on the brakes.
Push both feet in, and put the car in 1st gear. Take your foot off the breaks and slowly press the accellerator as you ease off the clutch. When in doubt press the accellerator down rather than taking your foot off, this will reduce your chances of stalling.
Once the car starts to move take your foot completely off the clutch. Once the RPMs get to around 3,000 shift to 2nd. You do this by taking your foot off the accellerator, then pushing in the clutch, then shifting to second, and easing your foot off the clutch at the same time you press the accellerator. Repeat this with all gears.
To slow down the vehicle, downshift- which is the same as shifting just going to a lower gear. This slows down the car without having to use the breaks. To stop the vehicle press the clutch with your left foot and the brakes with your right foot. Once stopped you can put the car in neutral so you don’t have to hold down the clutch the whole time.
