ASL: "start" / begin

Hold your non-dominant hand out in a flat handshape with the fingers together except for the middle and index finger. Place the dominant index finger at the base of the non-dominant index and middle fingers and twist the dominant index hand. Memory aid: Think of starting a car by turning a key. 





Also see: BEGIN

If you mean "start" as in "to start a car or vehicle with a key" you can depict that by miming the turning of a key in the typical location to the right of where a steering wheel would be in relation to your body.

turn-KEY / start vehicle / lock or unlock a door:
