Tips for driving a manual car – personal injury lawyer in Oswestry
Many people see driving a car with a manual transmission as far more difficult than driving an automatic. When you are first learning, you may find it easier to concentrate in an automatic, because there is less to think about. However, once you have got the hang of driving with a gearshift you will be able to drive just as easily as you could with an automatic, and some people even find it easier. Here are some tips on driving a manual car.
- Remember that many of the rules are the same. Whether you are driving a manual or automatic car, many of the rules will remain the same to make things simpler. The rules of the road do not change, the safety rules and generally how to manoeuvre the car are all the same, it is only the gears that are different.
- Learn which extra controls you have. With a manual car you will have all of the same components as an automatic, plus the clutch and gearshift, The clutch controls the connections between the engine and transmission, and pressing down on the clutch engages the gear that you are in. The gearshift allows you to move between the six gears available, with the default position being neutral.
- Switch gears to match speed. Different gears will relate to different speeds. Switch gears in order, and move up a gear for each higher speed you are going for. You should listen to your car, as it will tell you when you need to change gears rather than you needing to know intuitively.
- Move into neutral when you brake. If you do not move your gears into neutral as you brake then the car will stall.
