I've got a teenager that wants to learn driving a manual transmission. I'd like to find a desolate road - something like a subdivision that was paved but not built up - to go practice lots of starts and stops. North Pinellas or Pasco preferred, but I'm not picky.

There is a HUGE parking lot with no buildings at the corner of Causeway (Lumsden) and Falkenburg in Brandon. I have seen people use it for driver's training before.

Try the parking lot at Gulf View Mall up in Pasco. There's a few acres of empty parking lot, especially in the back by the Sears and Macy's.

In Pasco, Connerton would be ideal. It's just south of 52 on 41

New River on St. Rd 54 has a 2nd community which has paved roads and only 4 homes in the entire community...the rest was never build and many people use it for driving experience...
