This is a performance piece of my first time driving a manual car. I hadn't driven in quite some time before that because I lived downtown Portland OR for school and didn't require the need for a car.
Hope you enjoy my video project for Time Arts Video class at WSU.
Claire's 1st driving lesson - 1 Getting moving
This driving lesson video (https://www.learnerdriving.com) from LDC -
Learner Driving Centre shows the first practical driving lesson of Claire.
Claire has two sisters who found learning to drive a nightmare with other
driving schools. Emma, Claire's twin sister, particularly had a bad
experience and after buying many driving lessons from another driving
school she was told that she needed to learn in an automatic because she
had no co-ordination. This of cause was nonsense and after contacting LDC
we helped her to pass the test in a manual car despite the damage that had
been done to her self confidence. This is why we were so interested in
training Claire, her twin, to show it need not be so difficult. Because of
this Bob realises Claire may believe it is going to be really difficult for
her to learn to drive because of what happened to her twin sister Emma.
The provisional plan for today's lesson was to cover the Getting Moving
lesson from the LDC driving skills programme. Before this lesson Claire
decides to do some preparation for the lesson using the LDC driving skills
Workbook but not the DVD as she has no PC/DVD player at home. Bob gave her
the link to the videos on YouTube so she could watch them before the next
lesson on her phone! Claire has also started to do her Theory Test
preparation using a non-LDC phone App. Claire didn't realise LDC do Theory
Test software (i.e. Apps) for phones as well as for PCs. Indeed LDC is the
only software product where you can pass results between the PC and a
Too many driving instructors focus too much attention on telling their
pupils what to do, what to think and criticizing ever little fault they
make! This approach only fosters dependency, doubt and blind obedience,
such that once the test is passed they do all the things they were told not
to do. The LDC approach is designed to foster self-reliance, confidence and
responsibility resulting in safer drivers who learn to drive far more
Unlike traditional instruction LDC heavily promotes student centred
learning rather than the instructor centred fault orientated learning
approach offered by most other driving schools. This involves the student
being encouraged to take more responsibility for their own development by
using the LD System materials before and after each lesson and by using
discovery learning with self determination and reflection; rather than
being continually criticized and told what to do by the instructor. In
particular talk through instruction, prompted practice and long winded
explanations are avoided, if at all possible - instead encouraging the
student to work it out for themselves. If you want to see this approach in
practice view Bobby-Jo's, Claire's or Nikki's lessons with Bob.
This series of videos shows Bob using the new features which will be
incorporated into LDCs new workbook for 2014 as he helps Nikki and Claire
learn to drive. These new features are contained in the A4 ring bound
reflective lesson diary which Nikki and Claire are completing between
lessons. The idea behind the LD System is that you watch the video, do a
quiz in the workbook and then put the lesson into practice. The workbook
also contains a set of activities and targets for each practical lesson
along with a reflective diary to help you consolidate your learning,
explore your progress and plan what you want to do next.

How To Drive A Manual - (The Secret To Never Stalling)
Vehicle Virgins teaches you how to drive a manual transmission vehicle.
Driving stick can be difficult at first, but with a few key tips, it's not
all that difficult.
We at Vehicle-Virgins™ are a dedicated group of college students here to
help you make one of the most important decisions of your life: buying your
first car. What sets us apart from other consumer review organizations is
our perspective of review; we approach the cars as any kid would, not only
as a professional automotive journalist would. We take into account
real-world decision factors such as budget, reliability, safety, and
maintenance, but we also rate cars on their appeal to a younger market. At
19 and 20 years old, we have spent lots of time looking for our first cars,
and we know what appeals to us as well as our friends.
Our mission is to guide individuals in the right direction for their first
car. Vehicle-Virgins reviews popular cars that young buyers are in the
market for and helps them decide if the car they are looking at is a good
We are lighthearted individuals who are passionate about cars and hope you
