Hi, A few weeks ago i started driving lessons. I’ve had about 9 hours of lessons so far. in the beginning i was doing good i was remembering everything i could do it no problems but as the lessons have continued it’s like instead of getting better i’m getting worse i keep forgetting basic things. It’s gotten to the point that i dread going on my lessons. i feel sick before them. Even when i do the wrong thing i can tell my instructor is getting annoyed by the tone of her voice. im coming home from lessons crying. I’m at the point where i just want to quit but i don’t want to disappoint my parents as they were so excited about me driving and have even been paying for the lessons, i don’t want them to think it was just a waste of money. i don’t know what to do. please give me advice.

Get a different instructor. I had this with my first instructor. She made me feel like I sucked at driving , she was always making me pull over to discuss what I'd done wrong . I got rid of her and got an instructor who was quite an old man. Much better. He didn't make me feel like crap for making the odd mistake , and didn't have me wasting my whole lesson getting a talking to when I should be practicing. I passed first time with two minors, so his method of letting me get on with it wasn't negligent or lazy.

My first response was going to be exactly the same as the one below...I'd consider a new instructor 100%.

I was similar to yourself, dreaded lessons, felt like I just needed to 'get it done', never looked at driving as something I enjoyed and it induced a lot of anxiety.

But now I've passed it's one of the best things I ever did for myself. So do this for you, don't worry about your parents. If you like the idea of being able to drive and having some freedom. Find a new instructor that you get along with and makes you feel comfortable in the car and I am sure you will nail it!

Good luck
