Clutch control at junction uphill

Clutch Control - Emerging At An Uphill Junction

If you're learning to drive a manual / stick shift car and quite new to it then using clutch control at a junction on a hill can be a scary experience.

We have a look at how you can creep forward at a junction using clutch control, how to do a hill start and how to emerge.

Being confident with the biting point and how to creep forward is important before attempting this on a hill. It's best to practise on a quiet, flat road first with your driving instructor.

Once you have the biting point, you can lower the clutch about the thickness of a pound coin to slow down or raise it slightly to increase speed.

In the video below we'll show you how to use clutch control to emerge slowly at an uphill junction.
