      A WORD ABOUT THE COURSE FROM NATIONAL DRIVING CHAMPION AND WINNER OF THE INDIANAPOLIS 500, TOM SNEVA

    "If you want to teach someone or learn how to drive a stick shift yourself, use this course. You will be glad you did.  IT IS AN EXCELLENT LESSON PLAN.  Donít deviate from it, and it will be easier on you and the vehicle, now and later."

    "Being able to drive a standard transmission will give you a feeling of self-confidence.   Knowing that you could help in the event of an emergency could be more valuable than is necessary to enumerate."

    Tom Sneva
    Former School Teacher and Principal

      HOW THE CATCH POINT METHOD© WAS CREATED

    Jim Bacon, owner of A Stick Shift Specialist, developed the Catch Point Method ©.  This driving school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has successfully taught thousands of students and hundreds of driver education teachers throughout the U.S. how to drive a standard transmission.

      WHO SHOULD USE THE CATCHPOINT METHOD©?

    The course can be used to learn to drive a standard transmission on your own or as a lesson plan to teach the Catch Point Method to someone else under a license from A Stick Shift Specialist.

    The Catch Point Method is also a valuable addition to the school library and is ideal for special education students. The American Library Association has approved the course.

      WHAT DOES THE CATCHPOINT CONSIST OF?

    When you order the Catch Point Method© you receive the complete course in two forms, 1) an instruction manual with diagrams and 2) an audio version of the manual on either cassette or CD.

    Listen to the audiotape or CD and learn in your own standard transmission vehicle. You have the ability to stop and start the audio, learning at your own pace, and the audio eliminates the tension and pressure of having an instructor present.

    A male voice gives you very clear step-by-step instructions on what to do, while a female voice explains why you do it.This makes the instruction very easy to follow and helps you to achieve success.

    All of the exercises are also found in the step-by-step manual that provides simple easy to understand diagrams to help you learn.
