Hey, just a quick question. New driver here in school. In the yard in first gear was taught to put clutch in and then use brake to stop. Same with going reverse. No waiting for tension or anything just take foot off brake and then let clutch out to go (and put feet on floor).
On road starting off in 3rd would do the whole ease off the clutch till feel tension then let off brake then let off clutch slowly and give gas. Stopping in 3rd use brake pedal first then clutch when almost stopped (different than yard).
My question is, say I need to move up just a little bit, in traffic or at a light or from wherever from a full stop. If it is real quick and I have to stop again in a very short distance can I still put the clutch in first then use the brake like in the yard even though I'm in 3rd (or 2, 4, 5th...does it matter)? Was concerned if I hit brake first and am barely moving it could stall before I was able to push clutch in. Thanks.
