  • I have found out it depends on the teacher haha. Shouldn't take less than a few hours and you will stall less and less as you get better.
  • I can't.
  • That's what I learnt to drive on...it's what I drive now. It is easy to learn, just a matter of practice and co ordination. Now, I find automatics okay, but I prefer a manual drive.
  • well i learned the concept behind a clutch when i was about 12 from riding quads, so learning a stickshift was a pretty smooth transition. i'd say it took a week or so to really handle those steep hills and such though
  • Was use to shifting on my motorcycle from age 9. So car was easy to do. Stalled once with my instructor for drivers ed. lol not good to daydream at a robot (light)
  • never tried. Here in the UK we only learn to drive cars and bikes. I did learn but cannot remember how long it took as it was so long ago,
  • Ohhhh muh gawd. I learned on a 1965 Triumph...so on top of having the difficulty of the transition from learning on an automatic to having to do a clutch, it was a touchy, sticky clutch...so horrible. I won't lie to you, man. It was hard at first; it's all about timing and coordination though. You have to be super patient, and hopefully your teacher will be too (unlike mine...lol my dad was such a jerk when he was teaching me). It takes a few trips out to really get the concept of starting to move in first gear, and once you master that it's all pretty easy. After a couple of weeks you'll have it down, no problem. And hey, since I learned to drive stick, I've preferred it, and went out of my way to buy a car with a manual transmission. Better control and whatnot. I like it :) Good luck learning!!
  • About forty minutes. Older VW Golfs have an odd power delivery (power curve and gear ratios) which, combined with the worn shift linkage making Reverse, 1st, and 3rd almost equally likely every time you move the lever forward from 2nd, it took me a while (~20 minutes) to get the hang of starting on a hill. Once I realized I was trying to launch in 3rd, I stopped blaming myself for stalling it so often.
  • It took about a week to get used to it,about the same amount of time to get us of driving a right hand drive vehicle in a country that uses left hand drive cars.
  • like 40 minutes! its really easy i promise its just gettin used 2 driving with 2 feet. but im 16 and i started on an automatic but my mama bought my first car and it was a stick n she taught me how 2 drive it n it was a peice of cake! plus its so much fun. a lot of ppl are afraid to roll backwards on a hill but i thin its really fun! haha.
  • It came natural to me and only took a couple of stalls to get the hang of it, about 10-15 minutes. The real challenge was to start (from a full stop) on an uphill grade without rolling backwards at all.
  • When I learned to drive there were very few automatic trannys. I learned on 3 speed and 4 speed standards including double clutching on some of the 4 speeds. I would rather have a standard than a automatic today.
  • About 15 minutes
  • i dont drive
