• Practice. Get really good at first gear before you move on to second. You should be able to start it just as smoothly as an automatic car. Also, make sure to also practice down-shifting. It can seem easier, but, in my opinion, is actually harder as the engine suddenly speeds up.
  • Just have someone who knows how to drive a stick supervise from the passenger seat. It really is more of a physical skill vs. mental, you have to learn by trial and error (so don't use a really nice car!)
  • I learned the really crappy way! My car wouldn't start and I had to get to work! So I jumped in the truck! Well... I'd seen it done before... LOL Don't do it that way!!! Practice! Lots of practice!
