    Are you paying to learn this through lessons? Or are you just bored and want something to talk about?

    Well two things I remember from my first lesson. You will stall the car once, don't let it fluster you. And the car will move a lot quicker than you expect.

    i stalled once only and the car did go a bunch quicker than i expected. the first time he asked me to put the acceleration pedal down i got the engine up to 4k revs + XD.

    he said i was doing advanced stuff like starting the car changing gear doing a u-turn and stopping all in one go.(btw i'm learning how do do manual)

    Yea that was plenty of fun i just really want to go super fast at 100mph on like the motorway or something.

    only difficulty with manual is remember to do everything like the handbrake signal(if needed) changing gear quickly that sorta thing.
