Moving Away Uphill or Downhill

Moving away uphill or downhill:

There are differences when moving away either up or down hill.

Uphill: Use the same procedure as on a level road but more gas required (be sure you have the biting point before releasing the handbrake).

Downhill: When moving away downhill the weight of the vehicle will start the car rolling without having to find the biting point or adding the gas. In order to move away downhill, you need to push the clutch pedal down and select first or second gear depending on the steepness of slope, apply the footbrake and release the hand brake. Having observed and signalled if necessary, you can when safe, release the footbrake and bring the clutch up smoothly as the car begins to move.
