My name is Austin & I am 33. I have been in love with cars since I was 16 & started driving, THAT WAS 17 YEARS AGO & over half my life! I owned my first manual transmission (stick shift) at age 19. I purchased my first motorcycle at age 20. I normally drive my truck, which is used for the lesson, about 3 days a week. I ride my bike 5 days a week. I wash them both every week! You should take lessons from me because I am VERY COMFORTABLE riding & driving in my stick shift vehicle through any traffic or terrain. I have even rode my motorcycle all the way to New Orleans, going through the middle of Atlanta. I know you can & will be comfortable after your lessons are over & on your way to owning your first manual transmission vehicle!!

What are my greatest accomplishments & inspirations to teach more of these lessons?
- I taught my wife to drive a stick shift vehicle. Like others back in the day, she did not get her driver’s license until she was 18, because she was not comfortable driving on the road.
- One of the first people I taught to ride a motorcycle was a new immigrant to this country. His English was not the best but he was buying a his first ever motorcycle, a 750cc sport bike (crotch rocket). Like others, this 40 year old guy knew so little about motorcycles, he did not know that a motorcycle also had a clutch. After about 30 minutes of explaining what each pedal, knob, & button operated, we finally took off!..In the parking lot. As I ran behind him holding him up and giving directions for about an hour, we called it a great first day! The second day, we did a “reminder course” in the parking lot drills for about 20 minutes. We then finally left the parking lot on our VERY FIRST ROAD TEST, me following on my motorcycle, for even more road instructions. We rode a 6 minute circle about 3 times, including HWY 316 & Atlanta HWY in the Athens/Bogart area to complete the second day. The third day, we completed our circle again, with more & final critiques, & then hit the highway for a 30 minute open ride. He done great all 3 days, never falling, & is still riding since 2014!!
