Once a rite of passage, learning to 'drive a stick' is no longer the norm. In fact, just five per cent of cars sold today come with a manual transmission.
AMA strongly recommends that in-vehicle lessons driving a manual transmission are only undertaken by students whose 'practice car' at home also has a manual transmission. Please be advised that this option has a significantly longer wait time than automatic transmission, as we have a limited number of manual transmission instructors. In fact, the stick-shift option is only available in Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer.
