    Does anyone know of any good websites to practice hazard perception?
    I've done all of the ones on my disk, and I know the ones in my real theory will be completely different but I need the practice generally
    Aye I need to know this too.

    Also, anybody know any decent discs?

    What version of driving test success do you have? I've been using this and it has over 120 hazard perception clips and over 900 questions - either randomised or preset exams. I've been using the 07 version.

    Had my 10th lesson today. Went quite well, feels like the basics like junctions have clicked now. Almost like their becoming 2nd nature.

    Did a couple 3 point turns and started reversing round to the left which didn't go too bad.

    Ive been doing the reverse round corners aswell, quite hard to begin with because i was turning to late, but got it on lock down now, well kinda- i go wide sometimes but correct it sharpish when i straighten up

    I found the really sharp corners easy, but the more gentle corners were harder to judge the steering on! Practise makes perfect

    Yeh I found that after going onto the bypass... where the National Speed Limit applies. Going back on the "normal" roads was awful cos it seemed soooo slow!

    You'll probably suprise yourself and everything will come back to you. You could always ask your instructor to go over the basics with you before you start.

    Had my 25th lesson, because I had an awful lesson last time, we did some work on clutch control. Stopped somewhere quiet, practising finding the bite. Ive always found the bite by lifting the clutch slowly and there's like a little feeling in the clutch that says biting point found but when releasing the handbrake, the car would roll back. So my instructor said when finding the bite at the 'feeling' point to lift the clutch a width of a pound coin so the car doesnt move when you release hand brake.

    Its helped me alot, just want to get back to general driving. Think we're going to be doing some next lesson aswell. On quieter roads, I did it well, on busier roads, its that fear of stalling. On a hill, I stopped at traffic lights, when it turned to green I was slow to go. Once the handbrakes released and the car's moving by lifting clutch the width of a pound coin, the car cant stall right unless I dont give it much speed?

    thanks
