Learning to confidently drive a stick shift

With advancements in automotive technologies and a shift from rural to urban living, there is less demand for learning how to drive a vehicle with a manual transmission (“stick shift”). Australians are not required to learn how to drive manual cars. As a result, many Australians never learn to drive this type of vehicle.

However, there are advantages associated with manual stick shifts that are worth considering when you are about to begin studying for and gaining driving experience to get your driver’s licence. Here are a few of them:

  • Makes the driver more aware of the driving process = safer
  • More driver control in off-road or hazardous driving scenarios
  • Typically saves on fuel expenditures by delivering better efficiency
  • Good skill for emergencies when only a manual vehicle is available
  • Simpler transmission than an automatic & therefore less likely to malfunction
Learning to drive vehicles with manual transmissions opens up employment opportunities that are not available to those with automatic-only driving restrictions. You’ll have to know how to drive a stick shift if you want to operate driver-oriented vehicles like agricultural machinery, heavy equipment, semi-trucks, dump trucks and race cars.
