Learn how to do a hill start in a stick shift http://www.driving-school-beckenham.co.uk/hillstarts.html (simplest explanation, just over 3 mins) in a manual (stick shift) car.

Hill starts don't have to be scary, just practice and get confident.

Lot's of videos over complicate how to do this, but in this video we get straight to the important points.

Good use of the gas, clutch and handbrake will mean that you will do a great hill start every time. Rolling backwards could mean that you hit a pedestrian or another vehicle and fail your driving test!

Make sure that you speed up more than you normally would before you change up gears on an uphill because the hill will slow you down quickly. Use low gears to go downhill and use engine braking to keep you slow.

Hope it helps, if it does then please press the 'like' button as we'd really appreciate it!

This video is not intended to be a complete driving lesson on everything to do with driving on hills but just a brief explanation on moving off up and downhill.

Thanks for watching and good luck to everybody taking their driving test soon!
