No, the throw out bearing in a clutch is needed to keep an disengaged clutch spinning. you can drive a car with a bad throwout bearing if you don't use the clutch By "floating the gears". You must disconnect or bypass the start safety switch (this is when you need to have the clutch pedal to the floor to start the moter) so that you can start the car in gear if you come to a complete stop.
