I wanna learn how to drive, never had a single lesson though. I think I'd enjoy being a driver (like, professionally), driving lorries or buses or whatever. Still, I could just be a crap driver, hope to get lessons and find out soon.

I learned to drive a manual early. So now I can't stand driving an automatic..
Automatics take all the fun out of driving on roads.

But it's fairly easy, getting the car rolling is the hardest part. Once you have that down you're golden.

I learned how to drive manual in about 2 hours. Not really that hard if you already can drive an automatic.

that's a ******ed name for it, and a ******ed option for a joe blow like yourself.

there are proper advanced driving courses that will teach a lot more important stuff about controlling a car rather than how to t-bone terrorists.

I don't know why but this made me laugh furiously.

I've heard that learning manual first was the way to go, because then you can drive both ways

I learned in one day. It's ******edly easy.

I think you'll also find that it's much more fun than an automatic, as well. I like the feeling of having more control over the car I'm driving, too.

The first and only time I've driven an automatic, I found it harder than a manual. Spent most of the time waving my left hand around the handbrake and my left foot stomping the floor.

t-bone terrorists? you must be watching the wrong videos. offensive driving is all about what you just mentioned. proper advanced driving courses to teach you how to control a vehicle in tense situations. Are you trolling or have you really never heard of offensive driving courses?

Hey guys, I'm 20 and am gonna take my first ever driving lesson soon (manual), how long should it take me to be able to drive? I mean, I've driven in GTAIV, doing it irl can't be too much harder, right? Right?

I'm still not that good on a 5 speed. All the cars I've had have been automatic. I've driven stick shifts around parking lots but honestly I've never been past second gear in a manual. Around here you generally have to go out of your way to find cars with manual gearboxes, i.e., they're harder to find and generally more expensive. Plus, replacing clutches is a bitch. In an automatic all you have to do is slide the torque converter on and be done with it. With a clutch you have to align it, plus you have the whole hydraulic system that fucks up from time to time.
