Are you supposed to use one foot or two feet when driving?
Well when i went driving for the first time which was extremely fun my grandpa kept telling me to just use one foot but it was kind of uncomfortable for me so are you supposed to use one foot or both?

Just one foot.

In an emergency you may have to quickly slam on the brakes to avoid hitting something. If you are used to using both feet you may accidentally slam on the brakes AND the gas pedal, which wouldn't be good. But if you learn to use only one foot you won't have that issue.

The time to use both feet is when you are parallel parking, one foot for brake, while the other for gas.

Depend on what you drive but normally, one. I have heard of some people that drive with both feet but it seem very unnatural to me.

One foot always due to safety issues because using two feet people a lot of times will get confused and hit the gas instead of the brake or the brake instead of the gas...

Right foot.
Don't use two feet because you'll be driving with the break light on the entire time. Not only is that dangerous, but most of all, you'll ware out your breaks really quickly

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



longguyisland2
one foot. 2 feet will result in rapid changes in the motion of the car (because there will be zero transition time from one foot on the gas to the brake) and in turn will put more strain on vital parts of the car (chassis, transmission, brakes, etc) due to the frequent and sudden changes. it's not good for your car to drive with 2 and will ultimately lessen the life of the car and its parts, so play it safe and get in the good habit of driving with one foot.

*EDIT* forgot to mention, of course, that everything i just said applies to an automatic. you need your other foot for the clutch when driving a stick shift.

you only use your right foot for gas and brake


if you have a manual car then you use your left foot for the clutch ONLY.

If you are driving a standard Transmission:

Two feet: left foot for only the clutch
Right Foot for the gas and brake.

Automatic Transmission:
Right foot only. The reason you do not use the left foot (ie on the brake) is if you have to brake suddenly, you may not (forget) to take your right foot off the gas and have an accident or run a pedestrian over. . . it's too dangerous.

ONE FOOT for brake and gas.

If you have a stick shift (or plan to learn later) the left foot is for clutch.

====
But after the test, it really don't matter. People used to say that because there USED TO BE so many clutch cars and you can get mixed up later. But these days there are practically very little stick shifts.


Good luck...

traditionally you only use one foot when driving an automatic. but some people that have gotten used to using both feet when operating certain types of equipment will use both feet when driving.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



Terry P
Normally just one foot (with an automatic), so that when you are hitting the brake you can't hit the gas at the same time. That said the best driver I have ever known drove with both feet his whole life.

with a manual trans. both feet. auto trans. only one foot

one, your right foot, if you are driving automatic, but if you have to shift gears manually you would normally use your left foot to hold down the clutch

it depends if you are driving a car with a manual gearbox you need two, one for the clutch and the other for the accelerator.
However, if you have an automatic you are only supposed to use one because, you could get confused and cause an accident.

One foot for the gas pedal and brake. You are allowed to use a second foot for a clutch if you have a stick shift. If you have a foot on the gas pedal and one on the brake at the same time you inadvertently burn up the brakes on the car.

Normally for an automatic - one foot
for a stick shift (manual) - two
for a race car two even with a powerglide :-)

With an automatic transmission, the safest way is to use only the right foot for the accelerator and the brake.

In a standard shift car, the left foot comes into play ONLY to operate the clutch.

Use your right foot or the brake and gas, use your left foot for the clutch if you have a clutch. Never use your left foot for the brake because you should be removing your foot completely from the gas in order to use the brake, so you can't accidentally hit the gas.

2 feet if you are driving a manual transmission vehicle and 1 foot if you are driving an automatic transmission vehicle.

The same foot for braking and accelerating. If you have gears then the other foot is for the clutch. But only ever one foot on each peddle

when you are driving at first, it takes some getting used to, but you are only supposed to use one foot. The reason being is that when you are about to get in a crash, if you use two feet, you are bound to push down with both feet very quickly and it's possible to hit the accellerator faster than the break and you end up causing more of a crash.
