Those who are short in stature....

Teaching my 15 year daughter to drive. She is a petite, 90 lbs and just 5 feet tall. With the seat pulled forward, she can barely get the clutch to the floor.

Any young ladies out there with the same issue? Any tricks?

Reminds me of total recall. Kid had blocks roped to his feet! Maybe adjustable pedals? I know that's probably quite expensive to install.

They make them for people with handicaps and would be very safe. Rigging your own may become unstable and unsafe. Google handicap driving controls and poke around.

From watching the show Little People Big World i know that they make metal extensions that bolt on to the pedals but aren't permanent so you can switch them from one car to another. I dont know about cost though but if thats what she needs then you cant help it.

I go fast.
