I have a manual transmission car and have driven it on a few occasions and but need more practice in traffic and would like someone to go with me in traffic on a couple of occasions. Does anyone know if there are any local driving schools that teach this and/or independent driving instructors in the Johnson City area? Since I already know how to drive the car, I don't need an instructor per se -- just an experienced stick-shift driver to tag along and assist if necessary.

The dealership that sells your brand of car might have their folks show you for free. AAA might also know of some people. Best of luck and welcome to the forum!

Default You've probablly already done this....

I tried (read...TRIED) learning in a parking lot. Try to find one with hills.

I tried in South High School's lot when they were not in session. Over and over practiced stopping on a hill, pulling out. Stopping on a hill, pulling out. My husband would give me scenarios......oh there is a red light right here, there is a car behind you, etc.


Hope you find some help. I never did get confident enough. Drove his stick shift to Bristol, but it was all interstate so I don't think that counts. LOL !
