Although I prefer to drive a car that has an automatic transmission, I know how to drive a vehicle that has a power clutch.
I learned how to use a clutch on an old pickup my dad had around the house. I have even owned a few cars with a manual transmission, but always find myself going back to one that is automatic.
I also made sure that all of my kids knew how to drive a car with a clutch in it. I think this is something that may come in handy some day, and would be better to learn when you are younger.
This proved true when both of my sons bought motorcycles. A motorcycle clutch is needed in order to run it properly, and this was easy for them to learn because they already knew how to use one.
When they took the class to get their motorcycle license, they commented that you could really tell those people who never had any experience using a clutch before.
It was not nearly as easy for them to learn how to drive the motorcycle as those who were used to using a clutch.
