Double cluthching is very difficult for me ie-left hip replcement and a new driver are there any company's that will give me a automatic to train with then give me my own after.

Have Left Hip replacement passed all necessary physical tests but shifting ( double clutching) is Hard to do ie-lifting leg in sitting position and pushing in only slightly, twice for every gear shift hurts my hip.

Are there any companies out there that can train me in a automatic or do I Have to keep the fact that it hurts me and doesn't let me shift correctly to myself.

I have about a months worth of over the road training just out of school I am 49.

Please Help what do I do?

No need to use clutch

After I get the truck rolling I rarely use the clutch to shift gears. Reach me at www.SemiRetireTrucking.com if you have any more questions. Good luck...
