    Another new shiny thread.

    This thread is for all the learners to connect together, to discuss your good points and bad points of driving!

    Non-learners are also welcome to help out any learners

    Good luck with the driving guys! As always, stay safe

    I didn't know there was a driving thread?! I've been learning with Dad since mid April and with an instructor since July (a tad randomly though due to summer holidays etc). My test is booked for 22nd November... (And my instructor is on holiday until the 2nd!). I'm awful at manouvers and especially awful at smaller rounderbouts, I just panic!

    Yup, and it's a new shiny thread as well!

    Have you watched YouTube videos and applied them to private practice. I found that helped me a lot! I recommend watching World Driving!

    Not to worry! :hugs: Let us know how you get on with them!

    They're such good videos as well!

    A little tip: with the reversing manoeuvres, such as bay parking or reversing around the corner, you are allowed to move your exterior mirrors just before doing the manoeuvre so you can see the lines/kerb easier. Be sure to move it back once the manoeuvre is done, and also make sure you're not staring at the mirror :lol:
