Learn2 Drive a Stick Shift (continued)
Step 9: Practice these scenarios

  • In the neighborhood, 25 mph: Start, 1st gear, change to second gear, run either high rpm in second gear or low rpm in third. Sometimes run high to low second gear depending on speed.

  • On the highway: High rpm in third or fourth onto the highway at the appropriate speed, then fifth gear (if available).

  • Going down a steep hill: Keep the car in a gear that will aid the braking process, the engine sounds like it's working but not screeching. You may press the clutch in and out to further complement your braking.
