When to change gear to provide more pulling power.

Learning to drive a manual car involves mastering various techniques, one of which is changing down gears to provide more power.

When you need to accelerate quickly, such as when overtaking or climbing a hill, downshifting is crucial. To change down gears, press the clutch pedal, move the gear lever to a lower gear, and then gradually release the clutch while simultaneously pressing the accelerator. This process helps the engine rev higher, giving your car the necessary power boost. Practicing this skill will enhance your control and confidence while driving a manual car.

Watch the video above for demonstrations on this technique.
