Learning to drive - Changing from 2nd gear to 1st gear when slowing down
Just looking for a bit of advise - I'm learning to drive, and the instructor insists on changing from 2nd gear to 1st gear when slowing down so I am ready to set back off. Everyone I work with say this is wrong - I should stay in 2nd gear, and as soon as I have stopped change to 1st gear. I unserstand 1st gear is only for setting off and getting the car in motion, so why does he say I should change to gear 1 when I am still moving?
What does everyone on here think?
