It is good not to drive the car unless you reach the legal age for driving. However, there can be certain emergency situations for which you should atleast be able to drive a car. For example, someone in your family or neighbourhood is in a critical situation and needs to be taken to the hospital urgently. If you know how to drive then you will be able to give a helping hand. Nowadays, most if the cars are automatic and it is quite rare that you see manually driven cars. It is easier to drive automatic cars but if you are to drive a manual one, there are just few things you need to know.
Once the car moves from the rest position, immediately put it into the second gear, moving your hand down in the opposite direction but the same line as that if the first gear.
Pushing the accelerator, you will feel the car gaining speed so shift the car into the 3rd gear that will be the northwards of the neutral position. If required, shift into the 4th gear that is in the opposite direction of the 3rd gear.
Be informed that to drive in 3rd or 4th gear, you should be on the highway or the main road otherwise it is safe to drive in the 2nd gear.
