    So you have to pull the handebrake up and every time pull it down then accelerate and keep doing this?

    If you're stopping and starting going up a hill then yes, you pull the handbrake up each time you stop... unless it's only for a second, in which case you can hold the clutch at biting point (wears out the clutch though so don't make it a habit).

    If you're going to stop on an incline for a short while, you'll need to practise your clutch control. If you're stopping there for quite some time, you use the handbrake.

    Not always necessary, often you can just be quick when moving your foot from break to accelerator..

    Though of course this is what causes the car to move backwards. As soon as the brake is released, it rolls backwards. The idea of using the handbrake is so you can get it to biting point and release the handbrake then - not slipping back an inch.

    You would need a third leg to do that without rolling back on a steep hill. Anyone who doesn't use the handbrake on steep inclines hasn't been taught how to drive.

    Or you can hold your toes on the brake, whilst pressing the accelerator with your heel, let the clutch off, then move your toes off your brake. I have done that sometimes in this Renault Espace because it has a stupid electronic handbrake...

    Peace x

    That sounds a lot more complicated than pulling the lever to your left.

    Right foot on brake, left foot brings clutch up to bottom of bite point, right foot switches to accelerator, clutch up and away? It can be done... it's just not ideal.
