  1. My mum and I decided to drive together to prepare me for my provisional licence, and I was super nervous. My mum is encouraging but of course, stalling and messing up a lot can damage the clutch and more. I'll be doing this tmrw and hopefully I do better. I stalled 3 times but I need to get better at balancing the clutch and gas

  2. Thanks for the help. In my country we can take driving test when we are atleast 16 and I need to wait only 1 year. We can drive with cars under 16 at the places where are no police or we can get in serious trouble

  3. You are godsend. My mom is just a "figure it out yourself" kind of teacher and I CANNOT work with that. I've kangarooed. I've squealed out. I've stalled. All with getting frustrate with myself because I didn't know what I was doing wrong. Thank you very much. I'll be sure to watch this until I really understand what it means when I don't smoothly pull out.

  4. I already drive a Manual car but still watching the video just confirm our English brothers are doing it right 🤣🤣 just kidding guys !!

  5. I've only ever driven manual cars (had my license for 20+ years) and I taught by a professional driving instructor as well as my parents. First thing I noticed about this video is that the driver didn't have his foot on the brake when he started the car. I was taught right from the start – one foot on the brake and other on the clutch when you start the engine. This is to ensure the car remains stationary – handbrake might be loose or failed or whatever. I still do this even though I have a new car.

  6. This was very informative! My instructor's car is diesel where as my husband's car is petrol, and I just couldn't figure out how to drive it smoothly, constantly stalling, this explained away all my issues. Thank you

  7. It's my 7th lesson now in driving manual car, but I'm still struggling on clutch up, especially when I get to the stop signs in T-junctions. When I'm starting to put the first gear and release the handbrake down, the clutch is always 'spoiling my party' and the engine turned off.
