Putting vehicle in motion

When starting to move, gradually release the clutch and at the same time release the hand control valve or parking brake. At the same time, the engine must be speeded up gradually on some vehicles to prevent stalling. Check the brakes immediately after you have the vehicle underway, within at least 15 metres (50 ft.).
