Learn to Drive a Stick Shift

Description: Manual transmission, also known as a “stick shift”, can be a traumatic experience for a parent, stressful for new drivers, and unforgiving to the clutch of a car. At SKILLS, students learn the basics of gear-shifting, including downshifting, proper procedure for engaging the clutch and how to come to a smooth stop. The hands-on experience provided will improve the driver’s level of confidence with operating a manual transmission so that he can better react in ‘panic’ situations such as recovering from a ‘stall’.
