How do I go about test driving a car that is perfect for my needs—in terms of price, personality, condition and fit into my life—except that I don't drive manual?

When I was in high school all my friends told me that the only way to make yourself learn stick was to buy a car that had it. I'm fine with learning, I just have no idea how to get past the test drive. My lady friend hasn't done it since high school either. I'm having the car transferred specifically for this purpose, and I'm fairly certain that if I can test drive it I'll buy it.
Is driving stick something I can get the rudiments of via youtube or a chat with my expert brother by phone, and then do well enough for a test drive—obviously getting better as I own the car?
