    Why'd they cancel it?
    "Due to technical issues". I'm kind of surprised, but they said that they will send me an email shortly sending a new date and if that doesn't work with me to call them for another date or go on their website and check for another one. That's weird.

    Very odd, but now it gives you more time to revise for it I guess. Have you started lessons?

    I hope so. I hope they don't make it earlier. Yes, I've started taking lessons and I suck at driving.

    I don't think they'd make it earlier, not sure if that's even allowed without asking if you're available first. I sucked at one point too, I feel like everyone goes through that stage. I used to stall at the time, never steered enough and was afraid to change gear

    Same here lol. I've stalled quite a few times because I let the clutch go too early arghh! I'm ok at changing gears now I guess, but I still struggle with stopping and turning at a junction. I'm told I cut the corner and swan neck most of the time along with turning too slow.

    It's always taxi drivers. They make so many mistakes and drive competitively. Even when they're wrong, they'll blame you.
    Exactly! Plus they're always so impatient..

    Lol I'm like that myself at times when driving like the other day I was driving into another town for work, and the speed limit along a stretch of road was like 40, and I had to sort of slow down as I had forgotten what it was :lol:

    I passed last week but in my lessons, the clutch was my weakness. I was taught to just bring to the bite point and the car moves off. (It was a petrol but had a decent engine size).

    So whenever I was on any form of hill I always stalled. It was from then that I started setting a bit of gas.

    Also, hate how some people literally drive up your a** when you're doing the 20mph in a residential zone

    I know what you mean when people go up your a**! I had someone who was up my a** earlier and then went into the over lane then over took me. Made me laugh as the first set of traffic lights which were on red he went through then the 2nd set he stopped. I was just thinking not so big now by showing off now are you :lol:

    I did that all the time on my lessons! Because where I live it's basically school central and all the roads are 20mph and I forget! But I soon realised! :')
