OUR JOURNEY

It took us 5 years to perfect our craft. SHIFTR is a company built from the experience of successfully instructing thousands of students how to safely and properly drive a manual transmission car. 

OUR MISSION

Redefining the stick shift experience.

Many companies who provide manual transmission driving lessons either do it as an upsell to their existing business, or they allow just about anyone to sign up as an instructor and "pass down" the techniques they were taught. Both of these approaches have issues, mainly when these "passed down" techniques are either technically wrong or can be unsafe under certain circumstances.

That's why we created Shift Bay Area 5 years ago, so that we can to teach people how to safely and properly drive a manual transmission car. After growing tremendously, we're now offering the same in your area with SHIFTR.
