Well I live on the country side, no polices are here so they can’t record your mistakes. No speed limits in the woods.
I’d say the country side is the best place, it’s better to learn yourself than taking lessons. (In case you don’t want to be judged by other people)

Try reading some online guides for clutches and so on too.
This is how I learned driving my motorbike, actually it happened a few days ago!
Good luck.
