How to Drive Stick Shift

driving a manual transmission car

Stay Calm!

This one should go without saying, but it bears repeating. You’re going to stall out, you’re going to hold up traffic, and you’re going to take a while to get the hang of it, and there’s nothing wrong with that! Take a breath, start your car back up, and try again. And if anyone gives you grief for stalling out, just remember that they’re probably in an automatic and their driving skills are no match for yours!
