Post by omar.z » Wed Feb 15, 2006 9:23 pm

im omar..hi umm i want to learn to drive a standard car but the problem is my parent dont have time. they work long hours. and we dont own a standard car.

But the point is i was woundering if anyone knew of any places here in houston, that offer driving classes that teach students to drive a manual car :?:

And i go to school so it kinda has to be between 3:30 and 6:00. i have looked myself but i cant find anything i need help :?

First of all, here in america we are lazy, and their is no real market for classes teaching manual driving. You will probably have no luck at all finding such a thing. My driving school thought i was crazy for even mentioning it. So, find a friend, or relitive that has a manual car that they might feel confortable with you learning on.

=) you dont need your parents.. really no1 can teach you besides yourself. All you need is the basics .. which you can find on here, than take the car out @ night and learn it :) I mean its gonna be scary on the 1st night.. your going to think, "what happens if i get stuck somewhere? how am i goign to get home."


neways that wont happen prob. b/c most parents wont let there kids take there cars @ night =( and your name is most likly not on the car insurance papers .. so im sorry but i have no idea what to tell you =(

Try to bug one of your friends that have a manual transmission car for lessons. I'm sure someone can help you...
