It's not difficult per say... It just takes practice (: After practicing and getting used to it, it's like riding a bike. Switching gears takes focus at first, getting used to when to turn, when to accelerate or pass someone... it takes some time to get used to. Lessons will surely help you get over the nervousness.

Not much I can really add to this^ this^ pretty much sums it up.
It's best not to over think it and let it overwhelm you.... it's not hard at all

a manual compared to an automatic can certainly be harder, but once you get used to it, some people prefer it. I drive an automatic, it would take me time to get use to a manual

Like other people said. It's just a learning thing. I've driven some, dont have my permit yet. But it's cool. Kinda freaky as you also kinda need to trust complete strangers also driving other card to follow the laws of the road cause if they don't, it could be bad for you to. But still cool once your used to it

I am also starting lessons soon!! I recommend you watch a few youtube videos so you have some idea what is going on buddy and aren't so nervous

This is a vid I found particularly useful There are also other vids dedicated to explaining stuff like changing gears


I'm a prettyyy awkward weeb that likes alcohol and punk rock :')

I don't drive yet. I've notice that drivers often focus on things other than driving while driving and that scares me.

Read the instructions in the cars manual.
Sticks (manual shift) is a little more difficult, but still doable.
Just go slow, concentrate, and listen to your instructor.

(from experience, get someone OTHER THAN a parent.)

I'm up to chat about anything!
Hit me up!!

Driving is not hard after practice. It's dodging all the wahoos on the road that takes years to work on.

You should definitely start learning on a car with automatic transmission; was easier not having the headache of changing gears!

Nah it's really easy but I drive an automatic so stick would be really hard. The worst part about driving is heavy traffic and dealing with semis on the freeway

Think about how complex walking or running is, from a mechanical point of view it's ridiculously hard. You've just had lots of practice. After you've done it for a while it becomes second nature

Honestamente, depende del coche. Cada coche tiene una reacción diferente a la aceleración, frenado, curvas, desplazamiento, visibilidad.
Sin embargo, algunas habilidades se aprenden en cualquier coche, como cómo hacer un giro, o anticipar las acciones de los demás.

Comience con un coche que tiene buena visibilidad y que no es demasiado grande.

*************************************
Honestly, it depends on the car. Every car has different reaction to acceleration, braking, cornering, shifting, visibility.
But some skills are learned on any car, such as how to make a turn, or anticipating actions of others.

Start with a car that has good visibility and that isn't too large.

i know how to drive a stick!! i learned last summer at my uncle's ranch. he has an old jeep and he showed me and my brother how to drive it. we only got to drive on the dirt roads on the ranch, and never more than 25mph. it was cool, but only had one of super old radios that only gets AM stations....lol
