    I've had about 6 lessons now and I keep making silly mistakes, I legitimately was so worried about my lesson I forgot how to start the car etc which is super embarrassing.

    Anyone else do stupid things ? Or is it just me ?

    It's still very early days, it's natural to make lots of mistakes (I definitely did!). I must've had at least 40 hours of lessons by now, and I still get nervous before each lesson! You will improve though, and become less nervous as you get more confident

    Yes the same for me! You'll get better though I recommend doing two or more lessons per week so there isn't such a large gap between lessons where you'll forget things or be nervous.

    I got nervous before every single one of my lessons. I was ok once i started driving though.
    Youve only had 6 lessons so youre not very experienced. Everyone makes mistakes when driving.
    Ive passed my test and i still stall at times. Usuallly because i forget to change back into first gear.
    Dont worry about the mistakes. You will iron them out over time.
