Driving in NYC gets more challenging every day. At Image Driving School, we want all of our students to get the confidence they need to be able to drive on Highways and busy main roads with heavy traffic and aggressive, inconsiderate drivers.
We prefer to offer these lessons as a “double” (two lesson/1.5 hr) session, so that we can have enough time to review all the different situations that can arise from driving on our major roadways and highways.
These lessons can be set up as additional lessons for students with lesson packages, at a discounted rate, once our student has passed their road test.
Prices are determined based on your lesson price already included in your package, or as individual prices for students not already enrolled in a package with us.
Stick-Shift (standard/manual shift) Lessons
At Image Driving School, we not only offer regular automatic driving lessons, but we also offer Stick-Shift/manual lessons.
Many new drivers don’t realize that traveling out of the country can mean that a rented or borrowed vehicle may not have an automatic transmission. The United States is about the only country in the world that has accepted automatic transmission as a standard. Unfortunately, not knowing how to drive a manual transmission car, may cause you not to be able to enjoy sightseeing, or visiting family in other countries around the world. Manual Transmission driving has benefits that automatic transmission drivers don’t have, including:
• The ability to “Pop-Start” themselves if their battery is dead • Better control in snowy/icy/rainy weather • Better acceleration • Better gas mileage
We offer classes at $50.00** per 45 minute lessons that are given as an office pickup.
During lessons we will teach you:
• How to get into 1st gear • How to handle gear shifting • When to change gears • How to handle normal city “stopping & starting” • How to deal with stopping and starting on hills and slopes • And More…
