Here is a general procedure for starting and driving a manual car:

  1. Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the “on” position. This will power on the car’s electrical systems and allow you to start the engine.
  2. Adjust the driver’s seat, mirrors, and steering wheel to your preferred position. Make sure you can reach the pedals and see clearly through the windshield.
  3. Fasten your seatbelt and make sure all other passengers in the car have fastened their seatbelts as well.
  4. Press the clutch pedal with your left foot all the way down to the floor.
  5. Shift the gear lever into the “neutral” position. This is usually located between the “reverse” and “first gear” positions.
  6. Turn the key in the ignition to start the engine.
  7. Press the clutch pedal down again, and shift the gear lever into the “first gear” position.
  8. Gradually release the clutch pedal while pressing the accelerator pedal with your right foot to move the car forward.
  9. Use the steering wheel to control the direction of the car, and use the accelerator and brake pedals to control the speed.
  10. As you increase speed, shift gears accordingly, using the clutch pedal to disengage the current gear, shift the lever to the next gear, and then release the clutch pedal again.
  11. Observe traffic signs, signals, and other vehicles on the road, and adjust your speed and position accordingly.
  12. When you’re ready to stop, press the brake pedal to slow down and come to a stop. Shift the gear lever into “neutral” position, turn off the engine.
  13. Remember to always use your turn signals when changing lanes or turning, and obey traffic laws and speed limits at all times.

It is important to note that before you start driving a manual car, you should familiarize yourself with the car’s controls and features, and practice driving in a safe and controlled environment, such as an empty parking lot or a quiet residential street. It’s also important to take a driving lesson from a professional instructor.
