as long as your car doesnt roll back. the parking brake is taught by some to mimise risk of rolling back.
i was also thinking about this leh, i asked my instructor if red light need handbrake he say don't need. scared kenna demerit points in tp test leh. anyone can confirm this?
As a practical safety approach. When stopped and waiting at redlight, one should always apply handbrake on Manual car.
This is for safety, you don't know when someone may hit the car from back and send your car surging forward.

As for continuously engaging in gear or put in neutral gear is optional. Depends on how long is the wait. Waiting too long with left leg fully pressing on clutch is tiring.


Driving manual cars for the past 15 years. It becomes a natural response, car about to stop at traffic, free gear, stop and pull handbrake, legs free..

Started learning MTV recently and I wanna ask what yall when red light ah? For me is i depress brake then i cluctch release at the biting point area till i can feel the car shake abit but i my feet still depressing brake ah, then when ready to move on then i remove brake then car will run already. correct anot ah? any tips?
IIRC.

You just need to know that on flat ground, with only the clutch depressed, if you slowly release the clutch, the vehicle will move forward slowly.

On a uphill slope or incline, with the clutch and brake depressed, if you release only the brake, the vehicle will row backwards. This is when you need to half clutch, release the brake and then immediate depress the accelerator.

The clutch is easier to engage when the engine is of a higher rpm.

In the scenario where you are at the traffic lights, just depress the clutch and brake. Some ques could be blinking green man or amber light. Just release the brake and accelerator/release the clutch at the same time to move forward.

HTH.

IIRC, please also make a mental note that the clutch "biting point" will be different/change

a) different vehicle
b) after abuse by others
c) after repair/replacement

Actually the control if the accelerator is as important. Not sure if they still have the move off from slope - less points for going forward vs stalling or rolling backwards?
