while driving it is better to roll down the windows.this helps to better hear the engine sound and adjust the gear changes accordingly. 

repeat this several times until you can instantly recognize the sound. take your foot off the brake and feel the car moving. slowly apply you foot to the gas to accelerate.

accelerator pedal is not required to be pressed to move the car. just a gentle touch will be enough to provide enough acceleration. now you should concentrate looking to the front of the car.accelerate your car. you should accelerate your car to reach the speed limit in your neighborhood. if you are on the highway , you should aware of the speed limit but go with flow of traffic.know that each car has its own acceleration rate.
