The clutch….it’s a mystery to most new drivers!
- What does it do?
- Do I need to press it down?
- When do I press it down?
- Should I lift it up?
- All the way or just a bit?
- What’s the ‘biting point’ all about?
Understanding how the clutch works and how to use it when moving the car off from the side of the road takes a LOT of practice!
So don’t worry if it doesn’t come naturally. You will get it in the end 🙂
The video on this page will help, as will this handout and this article from Driving Test Tips.
Be patient. Ask your instructor for a demonstration and practice, practice, practice.
