Clutch Control

Im very nervous of driving. I have my 1st lesson today, at 11:30 :? I am with BSM, good choice? I have had some simulator lessons as i felt that i needed some "off road" experiance before i was let loose in a car on a public road. lol 

Can i ask if there is any tips about clutch control. When i was in the simulator, i felt it hard to keep both feet still (1 on accellerator and 1 on clutch) and i stalled a couple of times. I was contemplating automatic but there is a few downfalls with that, or is there?

I dont want to stall at a junction :shock:  :?

Thanks people for your help

Regards

Re: Clutch Control

I think that you should get onto the road  smile  I mean this in the best possible way, but no simulator can replace the real thing.

Get on the road and stall at a few junctions. It good for you.. Its the only way to learn.

Don't start considering automatic this early. I think most driver think about taking an automatic test after a few lessons of having trouble with the clutch, but practice makes perfect.

It wont be long before the doubts start to subside.

The thing I would say is most importatnt when it comes to ensuring that you don't stall when pulling away is to make sure you are giving enough gas. An engine only stalls if it doesn't have enough gas to perform the tast it is being asked to do.

Take a look at this thread ... http://www.iseekhere.com/learn2drivefor … .php?t=568

Re: Clutch Control

Hi Darren,

I stalled 3 times on my driving test and passed, so as you can see it's not always as bad as you may imagine.

Re: Clutch Control

Hi Mclaren

Dont worry about stalling, Last week I picked up a pupil went to drive her away from home, and I stalled the car,   
It just shows that experianced drivers still stall.  wink


Always look on the bright side of life.

Re: Clutch Control

Hi Darren,

Don't worry too much about stalling it's not the end of the world, even though you may think it is! smile  Even experienced drivers stall sometimes, myself included! After a few lessons you should build up some confidence and if you stall you will be able to deal with it. Try not to worry to much if you build it up it will become an even bigger hurdle.

Good luck and try to enjoy your lessons.


Friendly, female Instructor! smile

Re: Clutch Control

So far, ive had 3 x 2 hour manual lessons. I decided to book some automatic lessons. I have my 1st automatic lesson today at 9AM :?  its weird, but im getting nervous even thinking about it, and ive had over 6 hours on road experiance :shock:

According to my driving instructor in the manual, my steering and braking were good. My clutch control was good, but i was finding it dificult, esp when coasting with no handbrake, and keeping my foot on the clutch, brake and accelarator at the same time lol (it felt like that anyway lol) lol

Can i ask, i know its 30 - 40 hours for a manual, but whats the average time in an automatic, for the average student to pass their test?
