Hi Whisper
This may help
Riding the clutch is simply because you're not moving your left foot away from the clutch once you have finished using it.
Turn it into a procedure.
Approaching a junction or roundabout:
Use the instructor's/examiner's instruction to turn left or right as a prompt to check the mirrors ...
signal in plenty of time
adjust your speed and position as necessary
The go / no-go decision is made at 30 feet from the junction and at 15mph
If it's clear, select 2nd and go
If it's not clear / can't see then slow to a stop and select 1st.
If your speed is correct, you'll be all through and ready before you get to the junction. Take your foot off the clutch and rest it to the left.
Going downhill, make sure you have selected the appropriate gear for the gradient because excessive use of the brakes may lead to brake fade. Once again, keep your foot clear of the clutch.
You have to just take your time, be aware of your surroundings and plan your manoeuvres
Good luck

Put it like this... If you make a cup of tea, you add sugar & milk, stir with a spoon.
Do you leave the spoon in the cup when you drink it?.......no! of course not!
...so when you've finished with the clutch put your foot on the floor....get the idea?

Re: clutch[rideing]

in answer to your question what you are describing is coasting.The best way to overcome this is to find out how the car feels when going down a steep hill.This will help you to trust the braking effect of clutch out and show you why you have more control whilst doing this.Try the same hill clutch in and then clutch out.This is the best way to demonstrate why coasting is not safe. :twisted:
