My first lesson at Drive Stick Shift was a very positive experience, so I’ll be back! I entered the lesson with basically no knowledge, but Anton was easygoing, patient, and very kind to deflect some of the blame of my performance on my rote automatic driving habits. He gave very clear instructions, and he incorporated a combination of learning styles (verbal explanations, illustrations, videos to look at later, the Socratic method, letting you just drive the dang thing), so a kinesthetic learner like me was relieved. I presume everyone hits milestones at different rates, but by the end of my 2-hour lesson, I understood the basic mechanics of what I was doing under the hood; I wasn’t afraid of stalls; I had some safety precautions in my back pocket; and I was starting, stopping, making turns, and changing gears all around Manhattan Beach. When I told my coworker about the lesson, she asked me: “How was it? Do you think you could drive a manual in an emergency situation?” And my answer was a resounding: “Yes!”

Excellent 2-hour lesson. Eases you into learning. Great theoretical overview paired with methodical practical lesson. Never felt unsafe. Planning on booking a follow up!

Anton is a great instructor! I love that the sign up process is so straightforward. He explains the fundamentals very well. He’s also very calm and collected which makes him easy to learn from. If you’re learning manual for the very first time, definitely sign up for the 2 hour class!

Drove with Anton for 3 hours, we chatted a lot about the mechanical theory and some of the physics involved, he's clearly very knowledgeable about cars in general, and fairly enthusiastic about teaching others. I was driving decently after the first lesson, not going on any highways yet, but will definitely be going back.

Anton deserves the 5 star rating. He's patient, thorough, and attentive. He clearly knows what he's talking about and what you need to do to get up to speed (literally). Highly recommend if you want to learn to drive a manual.

Anton is amazing! He masterfully plans the lessons to flow smoothly but ensure you learn everything you need to know. He quickly adapts to your learning style and is extremely patient and gives just the right amount of feedback to fix any errors you make. He’s also fun to be around and is great to chat with about any car questions you might have!

Great instructor that provides real time feedback and tips. Guides you through the process. Great refresher if you haven't driven a manual transmission in a while or you q complete novice.

Had a great experience learning to drive from scratch! I decided to take lessons with Anton so I could drive the family car back in the UK. He's very rigorous about explaining concepts such as hard/soft wall for gear shifter, engine breaking, road curvature (critical for parallel parking!) amongst others, borne from his experience as a mechanic. This makes for very satisfying lessons. If you're looking to pass the NY road test, note that this school does not rent cars for that purpose. But make use of Anton to get you to the 95% point, then switch to an automatic school to use a more "common" car, and be taught to the test. Nonetheless I recommend this place without hesitation, if you are looking to get started on your stick shift journey.

Anton is a fantastic teacher. He is knowledgeable, patient and encouraging and made my first time driving a stick a little bit less daunting than I thought it would be. My second lesson is already booked!
