Especially on twisty country back-roads on national speed limit (60!)
National speed limit = 70mph, i think.

advise, be relaxed and listen to what your told, dont worry about stalling as he or she will take you somewhere quiet to talk to you for a while, on my 2nd lessing I drove into my local town which was cool, I have only been driving 2 years and already I have wrote a car off

dont worry itll be great. itll probably seem like loads to remember at first but u get it eventually! the first few lessons are the best, once you start getting into it you just seem to end up doing things wrong all the time lol. i have my test on the 18th, ******** myself!! lol

I'd actually suggest not booking your theory test until you've had quite a few lessons. You learn a lot on the road, especially when it comes to the hazard perception part

driving is easy...driving in an unnatural way like you have to do to pass the test for some examiners benefit is the hard bit.

I hated every minute of every lesson I had (about 30 hours in all!), I was so glad that I passed and never had to see that awful man again!!!

Goodluck Sarky! And if you need tips on reverse parallel parking ( ) feel free to PM me - just spent the whole of Monday afternoon covering that. I think I've got it down pat...
