You should try to find a Ford model T to drive.I had four lessons when I was eighteen and couldn't get the hang of the clutch at all. Went down the motorcycle route and passed the test second time. It's great apart from when it's raining, snowing or there is a lot of traffic.
You can get twist'n'go mopeds if you want to avoid changing gear. I've ridden bikes with hand change and left hand foot brake, hand change with right hand foot brake, right hand foot change with left hand foot brake and the opposite (yes, it is confusing and yes, I have tried to change gear with the brake!). The one I haven't ridden yet is hand change with a lever operated throttle... that is the hard one!
All kinds of controls that are not normal now.
A hand throttle and a spark advance lever on the steering column.
Throttle is on the right like a farm tractor, spark timing on the left.
The timing is a guesstimate at all times.
It needs to be fully retarded before attempting to start it with the hand crank.
Too much advance will trash the engine, too little will make it run hot.
The three floor pedals all have very different functions.
The left pedal stabbed in gives you first gear, all the way out selects second gear.
That's all you get.
Half way gives you a neutral for standing still.
The middle pedal serves as a reverse selector.
The right pedal is a foot brake.
To the left of the seat is a hand brake lever.
Fully pulled allows it to be a parking brake.
Half way is a neutral.
Fully forward locks the planetary transmission in second, or high gear.
To top it off, there is no steering axis inclination, also known as caster angle on the steering knuckles, so it doesn't find center when you release the steering wheel, you have to guess at it.
