is it possible to get a Renault Megane 1.6 petrol to slowly move off by simple lifting the clutch in first gear, applying no acceleration?

Asked by Oct 19, 2014 at 09:35 AM about the 2006 Renault Megane

Question type: General

Have a renault Megane as my first
car, but I have heard you have to
both apply acceleration and bring the
clutch up to even creep forward, but
in the car I learnt in you could simply
put the car in first and lift the clutch,
the car would then start to slowly
move and then you could apply the
gas to speed up. Can you do this in

yes you can bring the clutch up to creep forward but there is a fine line,too much clutch and not enough throttle the car will jerk forward and stall.its all about practise,have you taken your test or still a learner.once you get in the car you will learn to feel it and then it just becomes second nature doing all the actions of driving at once whilst keeping your eyes on the road


Yes you can if you have the skill. Like Paul said. Pay attention to the road.
