How it works

Learning how to drive a stick is very easy. You could be on your way to being comfortable in a few hours. Finding a stick vehicle to practice with is often very difficult. Most driving schools do not teach how to drive a stick shift. You're likely to learn how to drive a stick if a family member or friend owns a manual transmission vehicle. With Shiftdaddy, you can connect with approved instructors to train you safely in a few hours.


You have to be a licensed driver to use Shiftdaddy. This means your driving license must be current. Shiftdaddy instructors do not teach the basics of driving and following traffic regulations. You will only be instructed on techniques and practice how to drive a manual transmission.

Use instructor's vehicle

Shiftdaddy instructors provide the manual transmission vehicle for your lessons. No need to worry about access to a stick shift vehicle. Just show up, take your lessons and enjoy the experience. If you prefer to practice on a stick shift vehicle you own, we can happily accommodate you.

Recommended Hours For Lesson

If you have no experience with driving a stick shift, we recommend you take a 3 hour session. That should be enough time to go over the basics and advanced training on the road. If you have driven before and need a refresher course, 2 hours should be enough.
