Car too big for me?

I have been having driving lessons for 4 months and I think the car I am practicing with is way too big for me. I'm only 5'1 and the car I am practicing in is quite big.

When I sit on a normal cushion I can't really see the road makings properly and the edge of the curb, especially by the end of the lesson when the pillow is basically flat. I now use a slightly thicker memory foam pillow and so I have to put my chair really close to reach the accelerator and break. The problem is that I can only see the bottom of the cars in the left mirror and the left pillar blocks my view when I am turning left.

What do I do?

I know this sounds stupid but I only realised this in my last two lessons when I started using the new pillow, until then I just though I was a really **** driver. Help?

Also my driving instructor is a bit of a ****, so I i tell him he will just shout.

Adult car seat booster cushion... a 'cushion' that's designed for the problem rather than borrowing an unsuitable cushion from the sofa.
