NO. If you are a brand new driver, I'd highly suggest you learn on a car not jeep. Learning in a car is a lot better. Plus you WILL do damage to the vehicle. If you're a new driver-GUARANTEED you will mark up the car at least a little. To learn about depth perception and distance, etc. would probably be easier in a car, you can see better. Good luck! FYI if anyone in your family drives a stick shift, you should ask them to teach you. Most younger people do not know how anymore.
