AAArrggghhh...first driving lesson *Tub Of Immodium needed!* by harvey123 on 25 April 2005 12:26pm
 
A little of the topic and more light hearted than poltics but i just thought i would start a new thread.

At 3.30pm today i will be venturing onto the suffolk roads an im scared as hell. I can sort off drive im not totally clueless as i do abit of driving on the private roads. Im 23 i know i should have started sooner but ive always been a late bloomer! any helpfull advice or funny/frigtening stories

My mum said i should fill a vodka bottle with water and open the door acting pi**ed and swigging furiously explaining how nervous i am!!..daft old woman~i suppose it would break the ice though i'm not good with formal situations!!

Im quite lucky as i get to practice on private roads so i didnt bunny hop the car....I hate it though as i know every one behind me is saying 'Bloody learners'. I was really good sticking to the speedlimit though.

Well done! We all feel like that when we start driving and dont worry, 23 isnt late at all! Just get plenty of practice and very soon youll be gaining more confidence and things will become second nature.
I learned to drive a car many years ago, but only recently took my CBT, for motorbikes. Im a much later starter on bikes, and even all my experience in cars couldnt help me making all the same novice mistakes on a bike, but I soon got over it, after a couple of weekends!

Te,he!! Nicola in a car!! Sounds interesting : )...hop...hop...hop...

I can't talk as I've not passed my test. Have had about 20 hours...pre-university...went to Australia...forgot about taking test...and living in London meant I couldn't be bothered with cars! And the tube is soooo nice, not smelly and claustrophobic at all! *ahem*

I have a real problem with roundabouts...get a bit jumpy and freaked out by them...never know when to give way!! 'On the RIGHT' I hear you all cry...errrrr

My driving instructor once got out of the car and said he needed a stiff drink...humph! I tell you I was great!!

*Hop...hop...crunch...*

have you ever watched spongebob square pants episode where he tries to pass his test - it is so funny - your story reminded me of it - my son is learning to drive too - i am sure that if i were to take my test again right now i would not pass !! oops!

at least you are learning to drive - some people dont bother at all - so think positive and you will do fine
