So in my university holidays recently I forced my younger brother too teach me how to finally drive a manual.
Matt’s 17 and was the one who originally taught me how to drive when I was 10 and he was 8 (we live on a farm with plenty of road-ways). So needless to say, I trust him completely when it comes to moving vehicles.
I’m not gonna lie here, I was pretty damn good :) Although I still can’t get the hang of releasing the clutch slowly when first taking off, so I did a few sweet wheel spins to begin with. but once we got out on our quiet country road I got up to third gear! I’m a pro haha.
I didn’t go for that long of a drive as my other younger brother, Danny, 14, was also in the car laughing hysterically at my Nana speeds.
I think we were driving for a total of 30 minutes. But never the less; item number 1 on my list can now be crossed off!
