    I'm so excited! After months of waiting my car has finally been fixed and I'm getting it! I've just bought learner driver insurance for £465 per year and the car itself, which is being bought by my parents, is £1,000.

    The car make is a Vauxhall Corsa 2003 reg in dark blue. Do you think these are reasonable costs or am I paying too much?

    Yeah, my instructor offers free lessons if I'm ****ing up on a certain skill and like he's offered to take me out for free when I get the car!

    We kinda mix it up every lesson but I had a lesson today and we just went for a general drive about. He said I was amazing and that he'd be disappointed if I didn't at least have my test booked within the next set of ten lessons I've now just paid him for today!!!

    I also got the car and went out in it and it was so fun!

    I'm sure you don't suck! Just keep working on it! My instructor recommends that you turn the voiceover feature on and request it in your real test because it then encourages you to actually process and think about the question rather than rush into it (especially if you're lazy like me and cba to read big paragraphs).

    I'd actually be interested to know as well if £1000 for a 2003 corsa is alot or not as I would like to buy one sometime as well. Btw is it a 3dr or a 5dr version?

    I don't think it's either of those! Mine says SXi on the bodywork - so I assume that's the version it is?
