Good luck to you too, i just dont wanna rush it and end up taking and failing my practical many times, i 'd rather go at a slower pace if need be even if it means i may pay more and i want a more friendly instructor too.
Tomorrow is my 19th lesson and to be honest my driving has improved so much in the last 3 lessons its almost unreal, when you get 1-2 big things sorted it all seems to click, just the odd bad gear change, I think I need to be slower when going into third. But alas, 10 more and I am done!
I had my 11th and 12th hours of lessons yesterday. Did the left hand reverse and some city driving. Dunno how much more I have to do in the syllabus now.
I think i'm around the 10 hour mark..
I've been getting clutch control and the turn in the road and reverse around a corner sussed, but i haven't actually done that much driving on the roads, i do a 40 and 30 roads from my house to where we practice and another 40 road and roundabout to get to this industrial estate but thats about all.
50-odd lessons and test tomorrow. I'm scared.
Quick question, hope someone can answer it... Will you get marked down for signalling when there's nobody around to signal to? I was driving around a quiet housing estate today doing lots of turns and my instructor kept reminding me that there's noone to signal to. I feel more comfortable signalling for everything, no matter who is around, just in case.
Also, when overtaking on a dual carriageway, signal to overtake, but do you (should you?) signal to come back into the left lane after overtaking? A couple of time I've been reminded I don't have to signal to come back in, but again I feel more comfortable doing it anyway.
I don't think you should get marked down for it - and if you are it will only be a minor.
I don't think you have to signal to go back in, unless theres someone close behind you. (simple to try not to overtake on your test, unless you have to)
i was having lessons but my instructor was crap and never turned up to my lessons. when he did decide to turn up, we'd spent most of the lesson not actually driving while he looked at some pictures of junctions or make me do a whole lesson on right turns. complete waste of money that turned out to be. lmao
i can drive well i mean more than well and i want to book the test bt my instructor is saying i want u to get comfortable with paralle park and revers round the corner. i can do fine. damn i really want book my test, i don't know when he ever is gone tell me to book the test. i'm running out of money too. i hope he tells me to book the test. i had loads of lessons, i just don't wanna take anymore lessons cose i can drive without other peoples help.
Book the test. My instructor let me book my test without having taught me how to do the manuveurs yet lol!! He told me it's all relatively easy to learn and should only take a couple lessons for me...
Failed. Now I'm screwed because I can't get another test 'til October.
had 12 hours of lessons so far and then stopped for my A levels, I was trying to tell myself to continue in july/august so I could have passed before I go off to uni in september but I kept putting it off for money reasons...now I don't have enough time before I leave for uni so I'm gonna have to decide if I want to finish off my lessons and take my test either at uni or maybe wait till the christmas break.
my instructor said I was only 4-6 hours away from booking my test too, so if I had gotten my act together a month or two ago I'd be sorted by now :/
