Learn to drive stick shift - Honda Civic

Stick Shift Driving Simulator

Whether you want to learn to drive the transmission type popular and commonplace around the world, or get familiar with common sports car controls, at HondaCivicRepairs.com, we've created a virtual tool to help you learn and practice how to drive manual transmission online. This manual transmission simulator can help you familiarize yourself with the basic controls and gauges before getting behind the wheel of an actual manual transmission vehicle.



Press down on the accelerator pedal and watch your RPM needle jump. Press on the clutch pedal and simulate the free wheeling motion as your speedometer remains steady and gradually drops slowly. Double-click on the keys for any of the pedals and observe the applied pressure holding steady. You may experience a lot of stalling on your several first attempts, but have no worries, this is all simply virtual; no actual gears can be damaged in this process.

Learn the concepts and practice the key controls below to get started now. Enjoy!
