Had my 14th lesson today, general drive. It was a good lesson, stalled it once and had a gear changing problems, Im trying to get out of the habit of looking down when changing, hopefully I'll get there.
Just some areas I need some advice on:
1. We did three 3 point turns today. The first one was awful, took me about 5 steps to do it then the rest two were better. Pedal wise, is it only the clutch and brake I need to have my foot on? When I was reversing back, I had my foot on the gas and the car speeded up. So can someone just offer some tips there. :-)
I spoke to my instructor after, he said I was doing well but I needed to improve my confidence more, that also I needed to speed up after turning into junctions, especially on busier junctions. I feel Im doing that better, but on quieter roads, does it matter if you dont speed up ASAP?
Thanks for the advice, it REALLY does help me!
brokenangel - I've just spent my last 2 lessons on roundabouts and I hate having to judge where everyone is going and whether I have time to pull out. It probably doesn't help I'm quite slow at pulling away so wait for AGES!
thats silly! Neither of my other instructors stole the pedals from me except in real emergencies!
