Passer la premiere rather than passez la premier

In the fourth line : Why is it not  ‘passer la premiere’ because  the driving instructor is requesting two things: (veuillez) ‘appuyer doucement’ and ‘passer au premier’

Hi Ian, 

The two possibilities given for 'to go into first gear' are -

... passer la première (vitesse

... passer en première(vitesse)

The word 'vitesse' is feminine.

Hope this helps!
