I just successfully drove a manual for the first time without stalling once. I taught myself how to do it- I have been working as a valet for about 4 months and kinda taught myself on a few cars. An audi a4, pontiac solstice gxp, toyota yaris, honda cr-v, and my most sucessful drive a few days ago in a scion xb. It was probably not the most ethical thing to do using other peoples cars to teach myself with, but I always got another person to drive it if i stalled it more than once trying to move at first. And after I parked that scion and also when I retrieved it, I had the biggest smile on my face. I love driving a manual.
