Up Your Stick Shift Driving Game With This Highly Informative Video

Knowing how to operate a motor vehicle is one of life’s practical skills that we all need to have. It’s just like tying your shoe laces, getting potty trained and telling on your sister for something you did. I’m pretty sure you all know how to drive, but do you have what it takes to drive a real car—one with a dreaded manual transmission?
