    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    Congrats, I have started learning twice now..and I definitely could've passed ages ago, but things keep coming up and I get distracted. Also the thought of owning a car, paying for insurance and petrol/gas scares the life out of me.
    Trophy-licious!

    Then you depress the clutch asap. If a person isn't familiar enough to match the shifts correctly, then it isn't a good idea for them to put themselves in that kind of position (distracted driving,racing, ect.) where a missed downshift could occur.

If you're going 55mph and have to stop suddenly you can't just slam on the breaks can you? THAT would tear up the engine in some way wouldn't it?(it would at least ruin the breaks but skipping gears can't be good can it?) Say you don't have time to shift down gear by gear like you normally would.

    I wish I knew more about cars but I don't.

    Well I don't know much of anything about cars to begin with. I dunno I thought shifting wrong meant the gears don't move right and could potentially grind gears together and ruin them. Wear the gears down too much and such.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Just going up wouldn't ruin it but going down could...unless they've built a safe mechanism for newer cars.

    You already lost, I don't have a vehicle to drive. My mother has the only vehicle and she's gone all the time.

    Lol. That's how I was when I first got my license. It was my senior year of HS. Then went to college the following year, and used the grant money to purchase my first car lol. (I had a summer job where I paid part of the tuition with it, and my mom's then bf, paid the rest.)
    Thanks to THUGGEDOUT for the sig, The Black Wolf for the av.

    I wish I knew more about cars but I don't. My friend has a manual and I think he usually puts it into neutral whenever hes coming to red light or stop sign.

    Normally you would pop it into neutral in that case.

    A bit late with this, but congratulations Shawnee! Stay safe and enjoy your freedom.

    Funny, I must be in the minority but I've never ever been compelled to learn how to drive.
