It's done best that way as it would be difficult to navigate the gear box and clutch all at the same time. I wouldn't advise attempting it unless you are going through a professional course such as driving for personal protection.

thanks, i dont think ill be needing those skills. And is it okay to hit the E-brake when im in drive?


Backward to forward is easy... we used to do that instead of a 3 point turn ;) Forward to backward... I wouldn't reccomend ;) as far as using the Parking brake in drive... what do you drive? it's your car is front wheel drive, you can do it no problem... If your car is rear wheel drive, there's really no point unless you want to replace your brakes (The handbrake locks up the read wheels, this is what causes your car's read end to slide out...)

alright. well my car is rear wheel drive so if i touch the ebrake on a turn, the rear will slide out? When it slides out, shold i be on or off the gas? And when im doing backward to forward, at what point do i shift from (R) to (D); 1/2 way round, 3/4 way? And this applies to a front wheel drive car as well i guess?


WIth a rear wheel drive... if it's got enough power, you shouldn't need to use the parking brake... (Becuase that's just cheating lol) as far as the swinging the front around... it's a feeling thing... you'll figure it out... front wheel and rear wheel will swing differently, so play careful. go gentle while learning... Just remember, if you're going to be doing it alot... your car wasn't built to have force applied in those directions... expect to replace stuff.
