One of the most important tips to driving a manual car is to determine the engagement point of the clutch. The engagement point is where the clutch just starts to grab and roll the car forward as you are releasing the clutch.
As you slowly release the clutch you need to apply a light throttle as the clutch grabs, ensuring that you apply enough throttle so that the engine does not stall. All you have to do is master the start from first gear and then repeat the process as you shift through all the gears.
It is important to maintain enough engine speed (RPM) in every gear so that you do not stall the engine. Always remember to push in the clutch and when practical place the car in neutral when coming to a stop.
